October Tweet Elon Musk Sent Regarding Kanye West Comes Back To Bite Him On The A*s

A couple of months ago, Kanye West made a disgusting comment on Twitter in which he suggested that he was ready to go “death con 3” on Jewish people.

Politico reported on the tweet at the time:

In a tweet sent late Saturday, Ye said he would soon go “death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE,” according to internet archive records. That’s an apparent reference to the U.S. military readiness condition scale known as DEFCON.

West’s Twitter account was restricted after that posting, and Twitter CEO Elon Musk said he had spoken with the rapper.

Took it to heart, did he, Elon? Then perhaps the Tweeter-in-Chief can explain what Kanye told Alex Jones today on his show:

“Well, I see good things about Hitler, also. I love everyone. The Jewish people are not going to tell me, you know, you can love us and you can love what we’re doing to you with the contracts and you can love what we’re pushing with the pornography.”

Musk loves to say that he believes in “free speech” on social media and intends for Twitter to be the ultimate platform for that free discussion of ideas. And apparently that now includes anti-Semitism, blatant racism, hate speech, and lots of other disgusting expressions that are perfectly acceptable on Twitter.

So that means Musk has to hear what other Twitter users think about his counseling session with Kanye West, which clearly didn’t do a damn bit of good.

Elon Musk Gets Mocked On His Own Platform When He Whines About Apple Not Buying Twitter Ads

Like so many of the privileged class, Twitter CEO Elon Musk absolutely hates it when everyone doesn’t bow down and do whatever he demands.

For example, Musk posted a tweet Monday in which he complained about Apple no longer buying ads on Twitter.

“Apple has mostly stopped advertising on Twitter. Do they hate free speech in America?”

After that, Musk began directly attacking Apple, which is big enough to swallow up Twitter and have billions left over.

See what’s going on? It’s jealousy. Consider:

  • Apple has a market cap of $2.3 TRILLION!! Twitter’s is $41billion.
  • Apple makes products that people want. Twitter makes nothing and provides a platform for hate speech and online inanity.

Musk is also losing a fortune on his Twitter purchase, and the more advertisers who refuse to buy ads on his site, the more he’ll feel it on Twitter’s bottom line. As a matter of fact, he’s already lost billions and is reportedly losing up to $3 million a day.

As for the “free speech” argument Musk makes, it’s hard to believe he’s so damn stupid that he doesn’t know that no one is forced to buy ads on any site or for any product. The First Amendment doesn’t cover that, nor does any state or federal law.

For his whining, Musk was hit with mockery on the very platform he claims is the voice of the people.

CNN’s Jim Acosta Slams Trump And Musk For The ‘Dumpster Fire Full Of Extremists’ They Cozy Up With

Over the past few days, most of us have watched with horror at disgraced former president Donald Trump has welcome and met with avowed white supremacist Nick Fuentes and Twitter CEO Elon Musk has begun to let extremists who had been banned from the social media platform back on the site to spread their bigotry and hatred.

CNN host Jim Acosta noted Sunday on the network that all of this is a disturbing trend which could wind up being a a very real threat to the country.

Acosta welcomed April Ryan of The Grio and conservative commentator Alice Stewart, with Ryan reporting:

“I talked just before this segment to Jonathan Greenblatt of the Anti-Defamation League and said it’s appalling and totally in character for Donald Trump and brought up the example that he didn’t know who David Duke was and going back to this moment. But then he also talked about Kanye West and the fact that he’s also exhibiting racist behavior with ‘white lives matter’ and his talk about slavery and then also his misguided mindset, if you will, on what happened to George Floyd. Donald Trump was in the company that does not bode well for his attempts to endear the Jewish or black community and the community at large because this is viewed as racist, anti-Semitic and more.”

That led Acosta to ask Stewart why more Republicans aren’t forcefully calling out and denouncing Trump’s willingness to break bread with people like Fuentes and West. She responded:

“You’re known by the friends you keep. And if a friend brings a racist to the home, it says the same about you as them, and Donald Trump allowing the person to Mar-a-Lago says a lot about him. You give them a voice in the conversation, and now this Holocaust denier has a voice for the hatred. Anyone who’s seriously looking at being the Republican candidate in 2024, you are up in Ohio, in Iowa, in New Hampshire, in South Carolina. You have dinners with pastors and farmers in Iowa. Not in a country club in Florida. This will have tremendous political implications for him.”

Ryan then brought Musk and Twitter into the conversation.

“Words matter. (He) has aligned himself by allowing Donald Trump to have the Twitter account back. As an investigation continues on Jan. 6 and other issues. But Musk owns Twitter, like owning Tesla. It is his entity. But it is also others’ decision to stay on it. There’s a noticeable change in Twitter. How long will people stay with Twitter as the changes continue to unfold?”

Acosta closed the conversation with a remark that perfectly summed up the depths of depravity Trump and Musk have sunk to:

“Yeah. It is not easy to ride on the back of a tiger when the tiger is a dumpster full of extremists.”

Elon Musk Calls Trent Reznor A ‘Crybaby’ For Leaving Twitter And Quickly Regrets It

Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails has had quite enough of Twitter under the rule of new owner Elon Musk and has decided to leave the platform because it has become a “toxic environment.”

Reznor told The Hollywood Reporter:

“We don’t need the arrogance of the billionaire class to feel like they can just come in and solve everything. Even without [Musk] involved, I just find that it has become such a toxic environment. For my mental health, I need to tune out. I don’t feel good being there anymore.”

That’s certainly fair and Reznor has every right to 86 whatever he feels isn’t in his own best interest. More and more people are deleting their Twitter accounts, which should have Musk worried because the number of users directly impacts his ad revenue, which the social media platform badly needs to help pay off the $44 billion Musk spent to acquire Twitter in October.

Rather than respect Reznor’s decision, however, Musk decided he’d attack the musician.

That led to an immediate reaction from some of Reznor’s fans, one of whom called Musk out, which elicited another snarky reaction from the billionaire.

But Musk got more than he bargained for, with actor Wil Wheaton posting a lengthy diatribe aimed squarely at the Twitter CEO in which he accused him of being an insecure and arrogant child.

“I can not fathom the emptiness, the insecurity, the insatiable need for attention and validation, the staggering arrogance, the malevolence and total void of human experience that is Elon Musk.

He’s the richest man on the planet. You can’t go anywhere or do anything without interacting with something he’s part of in some way. There are literal millions of people who uncritically worship him, in spite of overwhelming evidence that he’s a douchebag. Some number of them will come after me, as they come after anyone who points at their naked emperor. They’ll spend entire days going after me and people like me, slavishly serving a man who does not even know they exist. They are his army of fools, uncritically serving his every whim. And it still isn’t enough.

He can have any material thing he wants, and he will *never* be happy or satisfied. He has no real friends. Every single person around him is either a viper, a parasite, or both.

So what does he do? He bullies and threatens and harasses and trolls and behaves like the weak, scared, insecure child he has always been. That’s a tragedy for him, but it’s dangerous for us. He doesn’t care what he destroys or who he hurts as he chases this existential thing he can not ever have.

You know the saying “hurt people hurt people”? He’s a hurt person who is hurting our society, making people I care about less safe. The consequences of this one man’s midlife crisis are global, and that terrifies me.

Rocker Jack White Shreds Elon Musk For His ‘A**hole Move’ – Compares Him To The KKK

Rock star Jack White has left Twitter and has a message for the site’s CEO, Elon Musk, who purchased the social media giant in October for $44 billion.

White’s move comes in response to Musk’s reinstatement of the Twitter account belonging to disgraced, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump.

On Instagram, White wrote:

“Absolutely disgusting, Elon. That is officially an asshole move.”

White added that he believed Musk was “trying to help a fascist have a platform so you can eventually get your tax breaks.”

Making it clear that he’s a “believer in free speech,” but would never “let the KKK hold a rally at our record label’s performance stage.”

“That’s one of the platforms we control and have a say in, it’s not town square operated by the government,” White explained. “And if I owned a gas station, I wouldn’t be selling the KKK gasoline to burn crosses either and then wash my hands as if I didn’t help facilitate hatred.

“You took on a big responsibility with your purchase, and ‘free speech’ isn’t some umbrella that protects you from that.”

White acknowledged that he had worked with Musk in the past when it came to Tesla Motors, but suggested the entrepreneur is using his money to “promote horrible, violence-inducing liars who are taking the country and the world backwards and endangering the democracy that made you rich and successful in the first place.”

Recent reports suggest that Twitter has descended into complete disarray as Musk makes deep cuts to the site’s staff and continues to lose massive sums of money as advertisers abandon the platform and technical threaten to cause it to descend into complete chaos.
