OP-ED: Elon Musk’s day — Antisemitic memes and guns on his nightstand

OP-ED: Elon Musk's day — Antisemitic memes and guns on his nightstand

News flash: it’s a VERY BAD IDEA to allow inexperienced super-rich white men with unchecked privilege and fragile egos (cough, Elon, cough, Musk), who have repeatedly demonstrated that they have zero business sense to be in charge of something that impacts other people.

I’m going to play amateur shrink for one second here, because just like Donald Trump, something is fundamentally broken inside wannabe Bond Villain Elon Musk.

They both love being terrible more than anything in the world.

Both of them have spent their entire adult lives revenge-fucking everyone they can.

Anyone who’s seen “Star Wars” knows what happens when you let your hate consume you.

FRENEMIES: Tesla CEO Elon Musk thinks it's time for Trump to go away

Both were raised by emotionally abusive fathers who were also hella racist and antisemitic who then gave them a bunch of money to go away and repeat their patterns.

Neither of them was protected by their emotionally unavailable mothers, who were too busy catering to their own needs.

The poor little rich boys were carefully taught to hate everyone not like them while being given every material thing they wanted while never receiving the one thing a child truly needs: the unconditional love of both parents.

And they take it out on everyone around them while being susceptible to the enticing lure of the Dark Side, because selling fear is much more profitable–and fun–than selling steaks or cars.

Elon Musk tweeted an antisemitic meme on Monday. Pepe the Frog used to mean something else and I know its creator has tried to reclaim him, but it’s never going to happen. This image means only one thing: MAGA people who hate Jews.

Pepe now represents Nick Fuentes, the White Supremacist Nazi Holocaust denier who created the Groyper movement.

Yes, the same NicKKK Fuentes who dined with Kanye and Trump at Mar-a-Lago and now plans to back Ron “Dead Eyes” DeSantis in 2024.

Btw can you think of a dumber made-up word than “Groyper”? People who revel in being the worst make my teeth itch.

I can’t say it enough, so I guess I’ll say it in all-caps now: ANTISEMITISM HAS NO PLACE ON TWITTER OR ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE UNIVERSE.

And yet I know in my 100% Ashkenazi Jewish bones that it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets any better.

I mean, if the alleged “Christians” in the GOP haven’t denounced Trump yet for hosting Holocaust deniers while being an active presidential candidate, they’re never going to.

This is why we have to keep shining a light on the vermin who perpetuate the hate speech, because it’s also literally coming from inside the House.

 

Elon also tweeted this early Monday morning. I wonder why he’s having trouble sleeping.

Let’s break down this clearly staged tableau/cry for help.

First of all, the framed reprint of Washington Crossing the Delaware propped up there is hilarious, because it’s essentially a visual representation of a whole bunch of historical inaccuracies.

All the Musk metaphors for that right there, because facts never matter to the Worst People.

The four empty cans of Caffeine-Free Diet Coke are just nauseating.

What is it with crazy men and Diet Coke?

Now, there was a time when I used to call Diet Coke “The Nectar of the Gods.” I drank up to six cans a day of pure liquid chemical garbage until I went cold turkey seven years ago. Not only did I immediately drop a bunch of weight, but my skin also cleared up and I slept better. It’s amazing what happens when you stop putting carbonated poison into your body.

Last but not least in any way, there are the guns. Having guns beside your bed is definitely also not healthy. Unless the gun is fake af and you staged it there to impress your fanbois, which is more likely here.

I imagine Elon being woken by his ringing phone from some awful fever-dream where one of his 10 kids is daring him to remember their name or something and grabbing the gun by mistake.

Hey Mom, nice work!

At least Twitter did what it’s best at by dragging Elon to filth.

 

We can poke at him, but the problem is obvious.

Sadly, Elon and his fanbois are having too much fun being terrible to even consider the humans they endanger when they share Nazi tropes.

And because they can’t be better than that, we have to be louder than they are.
