GEOTUS needs to bring Musk in closer. Now's the time. Can't always agree, but Musk is at least a true American who doesn't believe Orange Man Bad.

That's why it's so easy to spot a Karen of either gender. They think you are what you are forever and they hate it if you're not like them.

GenderlessWookie 82 points ago

That's becoming a real problem here. Too many "shill alerters", "if you aren't with us you're against us mentality". The ability to critically think is more important than the bullshit "team mentality".

There are tons of left leaning people that are on our side because they can think for themselves: Scott Adams, Tim Pool, Dave Rubin, Victor Davis Hanson.

Rosewolf2 12 points ago

Tim Pool is a fence center because it makes him the most money he just happens to know the majority of his donations come from the right so he slightly leans right.

wake the fuck up.

^ This applies to nearly EVERY journalist, commentator, news figure.

Many people don't get it. They think "FOX" is on our side. Or loony lefties think MSNPC is on their side. No, no they just say whatever keeps you watching and clicking.

Too many people don't think for themselves anymore. Sad!

On one hand he's probably one big fence sitter.

On the other hand, what's really that wrong for him to sit on a fence when one big criteria on being a profession journalist is to literally be impartial? I mean, if you DEMAND some other person to sacrifice his earning powers to double, triple down his "beliefs" that's not too far away from the failures of "Get woke go broke".

That's exactly what people say is wrong about "if you aren't with us you're against us mentality", one shouldn't demand "worshipers only".

I'm kind of 50/50 with him. I think it's fine, not like he is running for office (yet). He is good at his business and I would want him in my state. The neurolink thing kind of worries me if fully realized.

Nowadays got to worry about the Bernie Sanders types who pretend to be against the establishment so I do understand why a lot of people are overly cautious here.

In fact 13 percent of Trump voters previously voted for Obama. Minds can change, I’m one of them myself.

‘08 Obama was the only Democrat my parents ever voted for in their 40+ years of voting. When you combine how unappealing McCain was, with how good Obama and his media sycophants were able to make him look, plus the whole “opportunity to make history by electing the first African American”, Obama seemed like the easy choice.

You're blackpilled my friend. Lay off red pills for a bit, you're overdosed.

neurojerk 40 points ago

I voted for Obama and Clinton. We need to redpill as many people as possible. Reagan was a Democrat at one point. So was Rupert Murdoch. So was David Horowitz. So was Thomas Sowell. If we crucified everyone who once upon a time voted for Democrats, we wouldn't have very many thought leaders left.

You don't know your own argument until you know your opponent's. People who've been redpilled are invaluable in their ability to show where the secret paths are out of the leftist woods.

Its easy to see in retrospect that they had that election sewn up one way or the other.

In my mind, it's completely irrelevant who you voted for before GEOTUS, we were so screwed before he showed up its a miracle we lasted long enough to see him get elected. Thank God for this timeline.

DittoHead 2 points ago

Even though Obama talked about “spreading the wealth” and “fundamentally transforming America?” And that Church he and his wife went to, where the Rev. Right said “GD America”.

08 was my first election, and I’m proud to say I wasn’t fooled.

McCain was a saint at the time comparatively.

2
KuhlooKuhlay 2 points ago

You're not wrong but I couldn't bring myself to vote for McCain. I decided around 2004 (the original "Giant Douche v. Turd Sandwich" election) that I wasn't going to vote "against" anybody (for Prez at least) and that the person should have to earn my vote one way or another.

McCain had ample opportunity to do that and he failed. Ditto Willard.

He left the post because Trump wouldnt extend the Tesla tax credits. It was a good move for shareholders/virtue signaling to the left.

Yes.

Its what Trump would have done had the roles been reversed.

Why should the CEO of a company not do what is in his company's best interest?

For the greater good? Because based republicans say so?

-5
Rasterblath -5 points ago

Yes.

Fuck off. This is corporate propaganda. This isn't "The Elon" here.

Its what Trump would have done had the roles been reversed.

Trump was in his industry for 40+ years and never sat on some political board simply to gain favor with politicians. Musk was on that board precisely to curry favor. It was slimy political bullshit.

Why should the CEO of a company not do what is in his company's best interest?

This is a garbage way to frame this situation. He was looking for taxpayer dollars to help his company because he can't find a way for it to succeed without government assistance. Also is it in his companies best interest to have a hissy fit when he doesn't get his way on a single item?

The fact that he left precisely shows that he was there for a government handout and nothing else.

For the greater good? Because based republicans say so?

If I had to guess he simply has info that Trump is more likely to win the election so he's just making sure to align himself for some more sweet sweet government money again. This is the same thing he did under Obama. The same thing he did in Texas, the same thing he did in Nevada.

If Biden gets elected he will find some way to weasel in on that as well. 100% guaranteed.

You would suck at running a business. If the government is giving you tax cuts, you take them.

It’s not just about the shame or ethics of doing that.

It’s about choosing to be part of a political committee and then throwing a tantrum because you don’t get your way on what IS an unrelated item.

The argument on its face is deceptive from the beginning. That’s why you have 20 people in here rushing in to defend it in 20 different ways.

Most small businesses run fine without government picking winners and losers. I don’t think Not taking an unethical tax break would make me any worse of a businessman or a person.

GenderlessWookie -1 points ago

You're jacking off with all the talk about American companies finally coming back after Trump hands out incentives to them but the guy that builds in America to start with should get lock step with Trump no matter what.

Fuck. What's your IQ?

1
Rasterblath 1 point ago

Why are you putting words in my mouth to support the face of corporate welfare?

Regardless incentives aren't even the point. The point is the guy took his ball and went home when he didn't get his way. It's a poor attitude. It also shows he wasn't on the government board to contribute he was there to take.

Big surprise he tried to pull the same move in California recently. And yeah California sucks, but I wish they would have called his bluff. It took him a decade to get a factory going at less efficiency and less quality than typical auto plants. He wasn't about to shut that down and have to start all over.

Fuck Musk and fuck his cult of personality.

I'm glad people like you can worship him to feel smart and look down at others while doing so. At least you're good at creating a facade because it's clear you can't think for yourself.

Every time this guy gets close to government it's because he needs something.

In a relationship we would call this cuckoldery when going back to the same woman only to get burned. But here I'm supposed to be needy and fall over for this bitch. No thanks.

He probably left because POTUS left the paris agreement on climate change. Still potus silently doing Green stuff like 1 trillion trees, solar farms, etc. He also created space force which He and Elon could agree on.

One thing though is he has a plant on shanghai. I don't know the dynamic with that.

Yes, if you forget all his previous tweets about the lockdown and the words he used in the focused tweet. Sure, using an emoji that isn't the one that you would use makes total sense that the red pill is socialism.

americathegr888 8 points ago

He's very public about the fact that he's a socialist. People here just want to ignore that because they like some of the things he's said recently.

It's just as silly as the people pretending that we should import 1 million foreigners per year because 10% of them don't vote to destroy our country, and say "muh based legals" all the time, while 90% DO vote to destroy our country.

Can you post some sauce to back this up? He railed against the stimulus check and specifically called out UBI on Joe Rogan earlier this week.

The source is his twitter where he said, verbatim, "I am a socialist". Search "Elon Musk socialist" and stories about it with links to the tweet in question are the first links.

I know plenty of conservatives that drive them because they like it. They know it’s essentially a coal powered car. They don’t care. They just like like the ingenuity and the gas savings.

PensivePatriot 3 points ago

You're nuts.

Teslas are empirically better cars, and for reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with environmentalism.

Get behind the wheel of one (call your local showroom for a test drive; if you're smooth, you could even get them to loan one to you for a week to "see how a Tesla fits in to your life") and you will see.

They're egregiously fast, and autopilot literally changes your driving life forever.

Guys, I think if you actually read the whole tweet you'd realize he's probably referring to more "government investment into future tech" (which means more cash for Elons ventures" versus) "government controls the means of production", which he certainly alludes to as well as he clearly isnt a socialist faggot just as a general person.

Nope, he's never supported Trump and he's always been pro-socialism

"By the way, I am actually a socialist. Just not the kind that shifts resources from most productive to least productive, pretending to do good, while actually causing harm."

"True socialism seeks greatest good for all."

He's definitely not pro-Trump:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elon_Musk

Before the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States, Musk criticized candidate Trump by saying: "I feel a bit stronger that he is probably not the right guy. He doesn't seem to have the sort of character that reflects well on the United States."[276] Following Donald Trump's inauguration, Musk expressed approval of Trump's choice of Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State and accepted an invitation to participate in two councils advising President Trump.[277][278] Regarding his cooperation with Trump, Musk has subsequently commented: "The more voices of reason that the President hears, the better."[279] He subsequently resigned from both business advisory councils in June 2017, in protest at Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement on climate change, stating: "Climate change is real. Leaving Paris is not good for America or the world".[280][281] In May 2020, amidst Musk's restarting of Tesla assembly plant production during the COVID-19 pandemic, Trump tweeted in support of Musk, which Musk welcomed and publicly thanked him for on Twitter.[282][283]

In August 2019, Musk came out on Twitter in support of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, whose platform revolves around the ongoing problem of job displacement through technological automation and artificial intelligence. Musk said in a tweet that universal basic income, which Yang supports, is "obviously needed."[284]

ivan_iii_of_russia 2 points ago

I think the socialist comment is being taken too literally. The comment isn’t supposed to mean that he likes Karl Marx or something. He’s saying that he, as a capitalist, is benefiting the world, thus qualifying as a sort-of “good” socialist who is doing good for society.

If anything, his comment is a silent roast of traditional socialism because it moves resources “from most productive to least productive.” He’s attacking the notion that only traditional socialists care about general welfare.

Isn't the red rose a symbol of socialism? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rose_(symbolism)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labour_Party_(UK)

https://mashable.com/2017/05/27/hidden-meaning-rose-emoji-dsa/

2 quotes from him:

"By the way, I am actually a socialist. Just not the kind that shifts resources from most productive to least productive, pretending to do good, while actually causing harm."

"True socialism seeks greatest good for all."

He's definitely not pro-Trump:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elon_Musk

Before the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States, Musk criticized candidate Trump by saying: "I feel a bit stronger that he is probably not the right guy. He doesn't seem to have the sort of character that reflects well on the United States."[276] Following Donald Trump's inauguration, Musk expressed approval of Trump's choice of Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State and accepted an invitation to participate in two councils advising President Trump.[277][278] Regarding his cooperation with Trump, Musk has subsequently commented: "The more voices of reason that the President hears, the better."[279] He subsequently resigned from both business advisory councils in June 2017, in protest at Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement on climate change, stating: "Climate change is real. Leaving Paris is not good for America or the world".[280][281] In May 2020, amidst Musk's restarting of Tesla assembly plant production during the COVID-19 pandemic, Trump tweeted in support of Musk, which Musk welcomed and publicly thanked him for on Twitter.[282][283]

In August 2019, Musk came out on Twitter in support of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, whose platform revolves around the ongoing problem of job displacement through technological automation and artificial intelligence. Musk said in a tweet that universal basic income, which Yang supports, is "obviously needed."[284]

Paris even for a global warming loom was a fraud. So obviously would have shifted production to hell holes with a fraction of the regulations the US has.

Unfortunately, I think you are right. The rose clearly is meant to represent the socialist rose. He is saying to get red pilled on socialism. Bummer. JR. should take down this tweet.

He literally mocked Marx and communism in another tweet today. It’s our Red Pill.

That is good news. It almost seems too good. Tesla is the most popular car in my smug leftist area and love the thought of how much this must irk those people.

gulaschgel 3 points ago

No. This is clearly about the „good guys“ wanting to „protect the people“. This is his big fight currently, and therefore it’s reasonable to assume the red pill is about seeing these governors and dems in general for what they are ( or what they’ve become)

My point being is that it doesn't matter whether that rose was meant to be a reference to socialism. No one read it as such. All the lefty media just trained their crosshairs on him for that tweet. He will get so much shit from the them now, he will be pushed to the right soon by their hatred, even if he wasn't there yet.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely hope that you are correct and joins the Trump train or becomes conservative leaning, but I still think it's veiled. However, we will see as people are getting goddamn tired of the censorship coming out of the left.

Yes, look at his history. When you do research into his character, it makes way more sense than suddenly his becoming pro-MAGA.

He doesn't have to be pro-Trump to be red pilled.

"Its about free thought, not changing your thoughts from one political box to another."

I disagree with him politically, but he is still acting like a free thinker which is what being red pilled really is.

Its when you realize who is really in charge.

And a lot of Bernie supporters are hard core Trump supporters now because of the red pill.

Time will tell about Musk. That tweet was from 2018. Lets see.

Way to deflect from the mountain of information provided.

Not sure why everyone around here wants to get down on their knees for Elon.

There's nothing special or particularly intelligent about what the guy is doing other than his ability to extort money from governments.

Thank you, all that this person could do was downvote, mock and use emojis. That's the best argument that they can make. It's like talking to leftists when you use facts.

Im sorry, upon reflecting I realized this was quite a high horse move. I think it’s part character flaw, part trained behavior from arguing paragraphs long astroturfed posts on Reddit. Yours is well thought out

Anyway, I looked up the rose and indeed it’s got a lot of association with Labour and Socialism, and it is weird that he won’t just use a pill emoji. Still, the people associated with red pilling in the new age are generally the Trump / 4chan crowd, and triggered here would be the People you thought were meant for the dogwhistle because of the association, that was my thought process.

Also his schtick is end lockdown, expose media and dem governors ( of course for his own benefit Im sure) so here the red pill would make sense in that context. It’s a way many who ended up here went

Yang socialist also ain’t the violent lunatics from the Bernie crowd, so if it was partly meant for them I wouldn’t mind.

It's ambiguous what he is saying, which may be his intention. Everyone is going nuts over this lol. Musk aligns with Trump and conservatives in some ways, and not in other ways. The end

Trump needs to get a Tesla version of The Beast to drive all over California in.

3
2honks 3 points ago

Trump needs to find a way to help Tesla. I think the cucked ceos of automakers are really screwing themselves for not kissing Trump's ass. I can see it from Elon's perspective that he has to worry about losing customers who are willing to drive $80,000 cars cause they are worried about carbon footprints and virtue signaling. The problem is that our society needs his tech and advancements to get away from big oil. We will never be 100% off big oil because of big construction machinery, etc.

I wouldn't put too much stock into this as far as the whole movement goes, but the tipping point for California to be more competitive (at least at the top: Gov., Sens.) could soon be on the horizon.

Elon talking shit and encouraging others to wake up is good and it hurts Newsom and the Dems in CA. Especially if he actually leaves that would be a red pill moment for a lot of people for sure and maybe even some in Silicon Valley.

OhLollyLollyPop 1 point ago

If he goes to Austin, it isn't different there than tech valley. Dems run the whole place. A scar of blue in the middle of a sea of beautiful red.

There is a lot of compatibility between us and Andrew Yang supporters. Andrew Yang supporters are some of the most calm-headed and solution oriented people I've ever had the pleasure to talk to. I'd love to see some come build a coalition with us!

Yeah, Yang was the only Dem candidate that truly seems to love America. I don’t agree with his policies but he’s the kind of guy that you could actually have a respectful debate with.

He also passes the “I’d have a beer with them” politician test.

Yang is a sellout. Joined CAA, went is an analyst for CNN. CAA is the cult Democratic ring, even McGowan knows it, and same shit Milano is a part of
