Elon Musk has taken the red pill





Elon Musk’s Twitter presence in the last few months feels very Kanye 2018





Taking the red pill in internet usage denotes a right wing awakening. It's commonly used in Trump/ men's rights forums. The rose is a symbol for Democratic Socialists of America. So, I don't know what's going on here.


The tweet comes as Musk, who once tweeted he is "openly moderate," has taken increasingly anti-regulatory tone as coronavirus has forced the shutdown of his Fremont factory. He has called stay-at-home orders "fascist," and last Monday said he was reopening his Fremont factory and was willing to be arrested to do so.

Already conservative voices are hailing the tweet as a sign that Musk — who tweeted that he supported Democratic candidate Andrew Yang and described himself as "openly moderate," is joining their side. Ivanka Trump quickly retweeted Musk's tweet herself, responding, "Taken!" https://www.businessinsider.com/elon-musk-tweets-take-the-red-pill-what-it-means-2020-5

5. That's one big mistake Democrats make when they get into power

Instead of dipshits "changing their tune", it should be "Democrats destroy the MFers"!

7. I'm shopping for a new electric car this year, Tesla is now officially off the list.

I'm looking to replace my current EV and the Model Y was on the list. Not anymore.

There's quite a few competitors to the Model Y coming out this year and next. Looks like I'll be waiting for those to come to market.

8. He has always been that type. Situations like right now expose what they

always were. Same with those boys trapped in Thailand and his stupid device to rescue them and his attacks on those that criticized him.

His ego matters more than getting actual clean energy.

10. Musk has always only been Il Dunce with a new suit.

However, saying so at DU until recently would get you flamed.
