Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has slammed the rising culture of “woke” authoritarian leftism in an interview with the Babylon Bee.
The Tesla CEO describes “wokeness” as “hateful,” remarking that it is used as a “shield” by “evil and cruel” people.
When asked about woke culture, Musk accused its perpetrators of striving towards a society that is colorless and humorless.
He said the Left’s goal appears to be reminiscent of the culture of authoritarian regimes in countries such as Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.
“And I’m literally paying the most tax that any individual in history has ever paid this year, ever,” Musk said.
“And she doesn’t pay taxes basically at all,” he said of Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who called him a “freeloader” while falsely claiming he doesn’t pay tax.
“And the government pays her salary. The irony…”
Musk also took a few shots at CNN, a so-called “news” network that just saw one of its top producers get arrested for sex crimes with a minor.
The businessman joked that he isn’t “perverted enough” to be on CNN.
Musk talked about his stock sales:
“I sold enough stock to get to around 10% plus the option exercise stuff and I tried to be extremely literal here.
Musk then denounced California:
“California used to be the land of opportunity and now it is becoming more so the land of sort of overregulation, overlitigation, overtaxation,” he said before adding “increasingly difficult to get things done” in California.
he said of the Dems new failed religion: “Wokeness basically wants to make comedy illegal, which is not cool.
“Do we want a humorless society that is simply rife with condemnation, and hate?”
“At its heart, wokeness is divisive, exclusionary, and hateful.
“Basically, it gives mean people a shield to be evil and cruel.
“Armored in false virtue.”
Musk even went on to call out wokeness as a threat to “modern civilization,” suggesting what he called a “mind virus” could result in a societal downfall similar to that seen in the age of the Roman Empire.
