Loony Musk calls the BBC and real media the "effete elite" [View all]

So all this time he just wanted to be Spiro Agnew...

BBC article he was commenting on: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-66056375

Traditional media have used the term “far-right” so frequently & hyperbolically that it no longer means anything.

What use of that term by media actually represents is the immense ideological gap between the effete elite and the people.

The idiot thought "effete elite" was so clever he pinned the reply.

And in case anyone wonders why Loony reminds me of Agnew now:


Nixon had Agnew deliver a series of speeches attacking their political opponents. In New Orleans on October 19, Agnew blamed liberal elites for condoning violence by demonstrators: "a spirit of national masochism prevails, encouraged by an effete corps of impudent snobs who characterize themselves as intellectuals".[121]
