Elon Musk Reveals How He Truly Feels About “Wokeism”
(TargetLiberty.org) – Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk gave social media its biggest ever shakeup last week when he bought Twitter for $44 billion. Hysterical online Liberals are portraying the South African as a far-right extremist who threatens to impose a dictatorship on us one tweet at a time. Now, Musk has hit back with a devastatingly effective tweet.

On April 28, in response to allegations he’s right of center, Musk tweeted an image showing three diagrams of the political spectrum. In the first, dated 2008, a stick figure labeled “me” was visibly left of center. In the second, marked “2012,” Musk’s stickman avatar was now close to the center as the left side of the spectrum extended out and the center moved left. The third, dated 2021, showed a figure marked “woke progressives” far out on the left, with Musk standing to the right of the new center — without having moved.
Musk’s message is simple; his views haven’t changed, but the Left he used to be part of has now moved so far left that, without actually moving from his original position, he’s now on the Right. In fact, Musk has donated to both major parties in the past, and has described himself as “socially liberal and fiscally conservative” — but faced with the crazy excesses of the woke, even social Liberals look right-wing now.
In 2017, the Pew Research Center released data showing the political left has become much more extreme, shifting the center of the spectrum sharply to the left. It’s unlikely Elon Musk is the only person who finds himself on the conservative side of our new political landscape.
Are the Democrats facing a crisis when their traditional moderate voters realize the party has left them behind in its dash to the Left?
