A top Twitter executive has been arrested in a secret sting for Project Veritas for misrepresenting a potential company owner, Elon Musk, for having Asperger’s syndrome.
“He has Asperger’s syndrome, so he’s special — you’re special. You’re literally a special needs person,” said the CEO, who has been identified by Project Veritas as their lead client partner, Alex Martinez.
“So I can’t even take what you’re saying seriously,” Martinez said, complaining about the billionaire’s efforts to turn Twitter into a bastion of free speech.
The video, released on Tuesday, was part of the secret group’s investigation into the social media company. As reported by Rebel News on Tuesday, recordings of a senior Twitter engineer captured a snapshot of political events taking place inside the company’s offices, with the engineer describing his co-workers as “commie as f*ck.”
Martinez’s comments were not well received by Elon Musk, who responded to a video post.
“Twitter exec is destroying freedom of expression and making fun of people with Asperger’s…” he wrote on Twitter.
Twitter CEO smashes free speech and makes fun of people with Asperger’s…

The tweet came in response to Conservative commentator Benny Johnson, who condemned Martinez’s comments.

In the classified video, Martinez said that Twitter’s mission was not to provide the public with freedom of speech, instead, the company’s goal was to “believe in something good for the planet.”
Martinez believed that some people simply aren’t smart enough to make their own decisions, and therefore don’t deserve free speech.
“The rest of us who were here believe in something good for the planet and not just to give people free speech,” he said. “It will be difficult for him [Musk] To be like, “Ah, because people have to make up their own mind.” It’s like, no, but people don’t know how to make a rational decision if you don’t put the right things that are supposed to come out in the open.”
Martinez added that “advertisers are freaked out by what he tweets about — like being, like, ‘I want freedom of speech.’….yada, yada, yada. Yeah. Like who really knows what that means?”
“As an advertiser, my work is what I do every day and why I go out is what we want [Twitter] To be as fair, transparent and accurate as possible.” And if that means there is a level of oversight to get it right. Quote, quote again. And what does right mean?
“It’s a bit like the principle of being good and bad, like that good and evil are there and there—it’s either bad or good. It’s not, it’s not a mixture of good and evil. It’s like one or the other, and it’s kind of like the same idea.” – Like, is it…is it honest or is it lies or is it a mixture of truth and lies? You know what I mean? And like, where do you call – where do you draw the line?”
“This is why I hate this deal so much. Elon is going to get it all done,” the undercover journalist said in response to Martinez, prompting him to make further comments about the deal.
Martinez told the journalist that the company puts ideology on profit, and that the company is not currently making any kind of profit.
“Now I think it’s about, well, right now we’re not making a profit. So he’ll say the ideology, which is what led us not to make a profit.” “If we’re applying all these rules… and Elon wants to break it down, our ideology technically has us not making money because we don’t make money, and Elon wants to flip it the other way so we can make money, do you get what I mean?”
