Elon Musk Uses Obama’s Words to Checkmate His ‘Woke’ Critics

Twitter CEO Elon Musk has turned the tables on his “woke” critics by using the words of their idol Barack Obama to shut down their complaints.

Musk is being attacked by the “woke” Left for trying to bring common sense back to social media and end censorship.

But in doing so, he exposes these critics and threatens their power to control the narrative.

One of the many complaints Musk gets from the “woke” mob is that he’s “gone MAGA” or that he’s turned “far-right” because he refuses to comply with the Left.

A Twitter user mocked this narrative by posting a video of Obama scolding woke liberals with the caption:

“My god. @BarackObama has gone full MAGA, just like @elonmusk!”

Obama says in the video:

“This idea of purity and you’re never compromised and you’re always politically woke and all that stuff, you should get over that quickly.

“The world is messy. There are ambiguities.

“People who do really good stuff have flaws.

“People who you are fighting may love their kids.

“I get a sense among certain young people on social media that the way of making change is to be as judgmental as possible about other people.

“If I tweet or I hashtag about how you didn’t do something right or you used the wrong verb, then I can sit back and feel pretty good about myself because ‘Man did you see how woke I was? I called you out!’

“That’s not activism.

“That’s not bringing about change,” Obama said.

“If all you’re doing is casting stones, you are probably not going to get that far.”

Musk said, “wise words from President Obama.”
