Leave aside the fact that a liberal with a public voice has suddenly realized the United States is a sovereign country with the power to expel immigrants who don’t obey the law — as long as the immigrant in question isn’t one of the millions who’ve poured across the border in flagrant violation of U.S. law since President Joe Biden’s disastrous administration began. Obeidallah’s tweet did more than just expose the hypocrisy typical of the left, it exposed the proof that he might be better suited to MSNBC hackery than actual lawyering. In a follow-up tweet published an hour later, Obeidallah acknowledged he could not, in fact, investigate Musk’s citizenship without permission from Musk himself. (A better lawyer would have looked into the case a little more closely before making such a public announcement about going on the offensive.) Then Obeidallah had the effrontery to suggest that if Musk declined to make his information available for inspection by his avowed enemies it could only mean he had something to hide.
As a lawyer Im going to do research to see if @elonmusk in any way lied on his application for US citizenship. I’ll be making a FOIA request for his immigration application. If he lied anywhere on application we will move to strip him of US citizenship. Stay tuned.— (((DeanObeidallah))) (@DeanObeidallah) October 31, 2022
That’s the kind of circular logic only a liberal could love. And the reaction on Twitter — that social media platform that Musk controls for a price of $44 billion — made it clear exactly how wrong Obeidallah really was.
Just so everyone knows the facts, while I did make a FOIA request for Elon Musk’s immigration application he has to consent to the request before I can get the docs. If he consents, I will share the file. If he refuses to consent then we must ask: What is Elon hiding?!— (((DeanObeidallah))) (@DeanObeidallah) October 31, 2022

Do your parents consent to give us their citizenship applications? If they don’t, they’re clearly hiding something.— Snarkylandlord (@snarkylandlord) November 1, 2022
Oh yes, if Elon doesn’t help you try to get his citizenship revoked, he’s definitely hiding something. That’s top level lawyer reasoning if I’ve ever seen it— Fiery But Mostly Peaceful Zane Greenwald (@ZaneGreenwald) October 31, 2022
And then there was this:

But this is about more than conservatives insulting the left, or having a sarcastic chuckle that liberals are finally caring about immigration now that one of their most public bullhorns has been taken over by a man who calls himself a “free speech absolutist.” [firefly_poll] It’s about seeing the totalitarian impulses on the left on full display. For years, Americans who paid attention have known that the Lords of Big Tech are openly engaged in supporting liberal politics. But this is different. This is a man with a public voice, with a radio show on Sirius XM, with regular appearances on MSNBC, suggesting an investigation aimed at stripping American citizenship from Elon Musk — a man who’s been an American citizen for two decades — simply because he disagrees with him politically. Liberals have made an annoying — and erroneous — habit of referring to conservatives as “fascists” in recent years. But few inclinations scream louder of “fascism” than a militant inability to tolerate views that run contrary to the ruling power. That’s what the unhinged Obeidallah is engaging in. It’s the impetus behind all of the liberal caterwauling surrounding Musk’s purchase of Twitter. And it’s gone way beyond the kind of tantrums that mark grade-school children (or progressive college students) who have finally realized they aren’t going to get their way in life all the time. It’s a war against the very idea of freedom, and for the left, the “free speech absolutist” Elon Musk is now the biggest enemy of all. Let’s hope their future attacks face-plant as badly as this one.
