Elon Musk has finally taken his mask completely off his ugly face. He says he will vote Republican.

Not only did he (likely) use payola during Trump's reign of terror to push through his absurdly offensive (ALL the international community opposed this space garbage) satellite garbage plan (slave master and associated union-buster Bezos did similar, FYI during Trump's most corrupt presidency ever...makes Taft and Teapot Dome look like babies playing in a sandbox), he now promotes "absolute free speech" (would necessarily include the metaphorical "fire in a crowded theater") AND he is officially a Trump/Fascist/Republican supporter. Because...GREED and ANGER.

He says he would also reinstall Mein Trumpf on Twitter.

Why does Musk want Twitter? Could it be so he could use it as a huge repeater of bullshit, in order to affect things like...his own holdings in cryptocurrency, etc.? Like he has already abused it to affect the market price of Bitcoin (right after he bought a whole bunch)?

Now, all his Bitcoin took a shit dive. He has lost billions in value. And he is taking out his anger on Democrats and Democracy.

Repetition does not make something logically true. However, it does in the minds of the general populace. This has been known for millenia. This knowledge was abused hugely by Nazis before and during WW2. Here we are again. We exist in a political state of being approximately equal to the spring of 1938, Germany. Study your history. Have you ever noticed that Fascist bullies always accuse the enemy of EXACTLY the offense that they are currently practicing?

Don't be an asshole or Nazi sympathizer.

BOYCOTT TESLA. BOYCOTT VERIZON. Flex your money! Speak out to live humans! The alternative (submission to Nazis) is suicidal.

"An empty head is not really empty; it is stuffed with rubbish. Hence the difficulty of forcing anything into an empty head." "Power corrupts the few, while weakness corrupts the many... The resentment of the weak does not spring from any injustice done to them but from the sense of their inadequacy and impotence. They hate not wickedness but weakness. When it is in their power to do so, the weak destroy (what they're told is) weakness (even mercy and compassion) wherever they see it." ... "It is by its promise of a sense of power that evil... attracts the weak."

i predicted this a ways back... his brother says he has no empathy another trump.

he only told people he voted dem because dems were his customers. thye were the envirnmentalists. he never said he was a dem just he voted for dems... and publicly said this, why ? for sales. now he sees the money a pillow guy is getting and realized the dems have bought enough of his cars that his market is now right wingers specially with his remote internet . hence his ploy to buy twitter and allow trump to be relisted, more bones for his true base the kkk racists. He never had me fooled.

Elon Musk Chooses Sides on Gun Control Debate


Quote:
Elon Musk is the most influential CEO in the world.

And he knows it.

The mogul with 95 million followers on Twitter is determined to use his platform to weigh in on public debates, whatever they may be.

In recent months, the CEO of the electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla (TSLA) - Get Tesla Inc Report has thus imposed his voice on subjects such as the Russian war in Ukraine, free speech with the eventful acquisition-in-progress of the social network Twitter (TWTR) - Get Twitter, Inc. Report for $44 billion, cancel culture and its corollary wokeism.

The serial entrepreneur – he is also CEO of SpaceX and is involved in Neuralink and The Boring Company – also criticized the solutions put forward by President Joe Biden to fight inflation at its highest in 40 years. He gradually slipped into the role of opponent of Biden by declaring that the Democratic president was almost nothing without the teleprompter.

Since then, Musk has also announced that he will vote Republican after having voted Democrat in the past.


'Tight Background Checks'
For the past few days, he has been trying to draw attention to the population decline in rich countries such as Japan, Italy and South Korea. The mogul also said that neither ex-president Donald Trump nor Joe Biden were good candidates for the presidential election of 2024.

He also promised a big surprise for the midterm elections in November 2022.

Musk now assumes his role as an atypical CEO having broken with the tradition which wants that the bosses of companies do not meddle in politics and to focus to manufacture their products and improve their services.

He has again proven his iconoclastic and unconventional side by taking a stand in the debate on gun control, the day after a shooting massacre that killed 19 children and two adults at an elementary school in south Texas.

“I strongly believe that the right to bear arms is an important safeguard against potential tyranny of government. Historically, maintaining their power over the people is why those in power did not allow public ownership of guns,” Musk told CNBC on May 25.


The billionaire then told the outlet that he supports “tight background checks” for all gun sales and limiting sales of assault weapons to people in special circumstances, like gun range owners, or people who live in a “high risk location, like gang warfare.”

Such a position on such a sensitive subject is rare among CEOs, who often prefer to content themselves with terse press releases. Tesla moved its headquarters from Fremont, California to Austin, Texas in December. SpaceX, Musk's rocket company, also has a launch facility in Boca Chica, in the Lone Star State.

The world's richest man also lives in Texas.

Musk, however, does not say whether he will put pressure on the Republican governor of Texas to act on the gun issue. Democratic lawmakers in Congress have called on their peers to pass comprehensive gun-reform measures since the Texas shooting.

Blaming the Media
Republican Governor Greg Abbott is due to attend the 2022 NRA (National Rifle Association) annual meetings and exhibits in Houston, Texas, on Friday. Abbott worked hard to lure Musk to Texas.


The meeting will be headlined by former president Donald Trump, according to the NRA.

"Starting at 2 p.m. local time, Trump will be joined in a celebration of Second Amendment rights by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Sen. John Cornyn, Sen. Ted Cruz, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, North Carolina Lt. Governor Mark Robinson, and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem," the organization said in a press release issued on May 12.

No change has been made as of time of writing.

In exchanges with CNBC, however, Musk attacks the media, which he accuses of giving too much coverage to mass shootings.

"Regarding recent events, the shooters are obviously doing this to generate the most amount of attention possible. Why is the media doing exactly what the mass murderers want?” Musk asked.

The Texas tragedy has reignited the gun control debate. But it is important to underline that it is not realistic to imagine a reform because this debate has become very politically divisive.

Gun owners - and there are an estimated 80 million of them - see their firearms as a way to defend their own freedoms and property. Banning or restricting guns is therefore seen as a violation of their rights.
