Red-pilled Elon Musk has plenty of reasons to be fed up with the Democrats — Analysis
Elon Musk has been red-pilled. After months of attacks from the left, its allies in the Democratic party, and ceaseless efforts to cancel him, the world’s richest man says that he plans on voting Republican moving forward.
Musk, like many former Democrats has given up on the future of the party of left. The party of “kindness,”Musk knows that Democrats are falling far short of their potential due to the endorsement by woke, anti American, and, some would even argue, anti-human policies which benefit only those who have power. The establishment has been unrelenting in its pursuit of “socially conscious”Causes such as the anti-parental transgender ideology and forced adoption “preferred pronouns,” cancel culture, abolishing law enforcement, and – much to the chagrin of many anti-war advocates on the left – funding foreign conflicts.
The Democrats having devolved from being the ‘party of the people’ to one of weird agendas was no more evident than when numerous political influencers, including prominent congressional representatives, senators, and even Vice President Kamala Harris, threw their support behind the ‘defund the police’ movement in 2020.
In retrospect, everyone could’ve seen the iceberg on the horizon from the Titanic, the effects of which are now clearly evident with the rise in inflation, crime, illegal immigration, and numerous crises that have only served to hurt, and not help, Democratic constituents, not to mention independent Republican-leaning business owners.
And much like the iceberg that sank the Titanic, this one’s sinking what was thought be an unsinkable America. To big for failure? There’s no such thing.
Worse still, Democrats don’t take ownership of the problems they’ve created. Rather than work to address these issues, they’ve opted to blame everyone from Russian President Vladimir Putin to former US President Donald Trump. Are you printing too many dollars? Let’s just label it “Putin’s Price Hike” and call it a day.
Democrats like Joe Biden are not addressing policy failures. Instead, they have doubled-down on them and moved to suppress their critics as well as impose censorship of those who disagree.
On social media, no one in the US has been subjected to more censorship than conservatives – and it has been unrelenting. To keep out dissident voices, the Biden White House established its own Ministry of Truth.
Biden is a unifier, but he has made a decision to blame his political foes. His party has turned into one of hatred and division.
It’s no surprise that Musk, a visionary who wants to make the world a better place through the advancement of technology and the lessening of limits on free speech, has taken it upon himself to align with the Republicans. After all, this is part of the reason Musk, who sees Twitter’s potential as a marketplace of ideas, decided to buy it.
These remarks were made days after Musk mocked President Joe Biden and pointed out that whoever owns the teleprompter has the true power. Just as well, Musk’s criticism of the Biden administration has been steady, particularly for printing endless dollars and jacking up inflation.
Musk is not mistaken. He has strong personal reasons for opposing the Democrats. This is especially true in light of ESG scores (environment.social.and governance). The system, which is designed to nudge corporations into embracing progressive causes, absurdly rates oil major Exxon in the top ten in the world for ESG – being woke apparently more than offsets the hydrocarbon focus of the business. Tesla, one of America’s leading employers and the pioneer of electric vehicles, didn’t even make the list.
“ESG is a scam. It has been weaponized by phony social justice warriors,” said MuskIn a separate tweet, he added that ESG was also being discussed by. “determines how compliant your business is with the leftist agenda.”
Musk may not be a dyed-in-the-wool conservative, and that’s okay. At least in the near future, his libertarian views and personal interests are aligned with those of Republicans.
Musk knows that he’ll face blowback for his newfound position and expects the political attacks on him to come in hard and fast – and to dramatically escalateIn the next months.
Musk himself believed it was the best. “In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party. They have now become the party that divides. [and] hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican.”
“Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold,”He was satisfied.
Elon, red-pill them. It’s the only way to be sure.
