Elon Decimates the Dems With a Devastating Announcement About the Election – Opinion

I reported earlier about Elon Musk’s remarks on a podcast at a tech summit, taking Joe Biden to task when it comes to inflation. Biden was mocked by Elon Musk who claimed that the president controlled the teleprompter. I mentioned how it sounded like he’d been red-pilled.

There was more to the podcast than that, which is what it seems like. He’s making it official, and this is going to infuriate the left even more.

Musk mentioned how he had always voted Democratic, saying he wasn’t sure that he’d ever voted for a Republican. Musk will now vote Republican for the next election.

“I have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats, historically. Like I’m not sure, I might never have voted for a Republican, just to be clear,” Elon said. “Now this election, I will.” He isn’t the only one, and he’s just a sign of a larger movement coming.

Musk attacked the “left-wing bias” of Twitter, which Project Veritas confirmed with a damning video they just released. He said that it wasn’t going to be a “right-wing takeover” of Twitter, but a “moderate-wing takeover,” so that all could express themselves in the “digital town square. That’s what the right has been celebrating — just the idea of basic fairness, not being banned for political belief, not having information suppressed because it doesn’t serve the Democratic political narrative.

But the left can’t even take that. They melt down and attack Musk because they don’t want to lose the power that they’ve exercised over the platform. This reaction, along with their radical left-leaning move, have no doubt pushed him to alter his voting style.

But unlike some on the left, Musk even takes people coming back at him and attacking him as a part of the landscape, saying he shouldn’t be able to control everything; he wouldn’t want to be able to stop people from criticizing him. Now, that’s the right attitude to have, and it means he truly gets the concept of free speech that he’s fighting for — that even those who would go after him get to speak. If he can achieve that, then it truly is a “town square.”

Musk also noted something else in the podcast — his concern about bots. Musk’s Twitter acquisition has been on hold for a few days, after he questioned whether the spam/fake accounts comprise fewer than 5 percent of users. The more fake accounts there are, the less the worth of the platform, and so, the less it’s a desirable purchase. But it’s not just the value of the purchase, but how bots manipulate your experience on the platform. Is it possible that Joe Biden is becoming popular, or are the Democrats using a bot to make people feel good about him? You know the answer to that already, since Joe isn’t popular. That’s something else Musk wants to do away with.

But Tim Draper — an investor close to Musk who’s putting $100 million into the Twitter effort with him — said he believed the deal was still going to go through, just that the price should be dropped to match the reality. “But I think he’s going to get a better deal because he found out that, whatever, two-thirds [of users] are bots or something.” Musk has said he’s still committed to the deal. But he isn’t the richest man in the world by accident — he’s going to try to get the best deal that he can under the circumstances.

Parag Agrawal, a Twitter user who posted an extensive thread about bots on Monday, was probably trying to appease Musk by downplaying the matter.
