The Left's Most Hated General Gets Reinstated on Twitter, Uses First Post to Thank Man Who Did It

Retired Gen. Michael Flynn was reinstated on Twitter Friday, nearly two years after the former national security adviser to former President Donald Trump was banned from the platform.

As noted by PBS, Flynn was removed from Twitter two days after the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol incursion, at a time when social media bans were being inflicted on right-wing voices that called into question the results of the 2020 election and were allegedly disseminating hate speech.

Flynn punctuated his first tweet back with a characteristic message, saying “God Bless America!”

He also offered a thank-you to Twitter’s owner, Elon Musk.

“I want to personally thank @elonmusk for all he is doing to help protect our basic human rights, especially our freedom of speech. And thanks for allowing me back on @Twitter," Flynn wrote.

Flynn’s reinstatement followed a Thursday tweet from once-banned Roger Stone asking Musk to allow Flynn back on the social media platform.


"@GenFynn has been locked out of his Twitter page since 2020. Can see- can't post. Please @elonmusk reinstate General Michael Flynn," Stone wrote.

Flynn had last been on Twitter voicing an upbeat message in the time of tumult that marked the early days of January 2021.

“America fought a good fight. Our great Country is resilient & we will get thru this difficult time. Acting responsibly at this moment is what all Americans must do. During the past 4 tough years, I found faith, family and true friends were my foundation,” he wrote then.

Flynn’s return was celebrated by his followers.

Not everyone was pleased.

Prior to buying Twitter, Musk had voiced his disapproval of banning high-profile individuals from Twitter. Since buying the platform he has ended bans for several individuals, including Trump, who has not yet posted, saying he prefers to use his own Truth Social platform.

CORRECTION, Jan. 9, 2023: An earlier version of this article included an inaccurate description of the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol incursion.
