Elon Musk Angers Liberals Over Portrayal of Democrats As Extremists

He's right on the button.

You know you’re effective when your enemies hate what you’re doing and saying. Elon Musk is quite effective.


FNC: “On Thursday evening, Musk tweeted out a comic which depicted the evolution of liberals from 2008 to now. The illustration showed that in 2008 both conservatives and liberals were about equidistant to the center of the political spectrum, with Musk (“me”) depicted slightly to the left.

The graphic ultimately showed Musk and the conservative in the same places in 2021, but this time the liberal, now referred to as the ‘woke ‘progressive,’’  had sprinted to the extreme left of the scale, moving the center point further to the left, leaving former liberals now on the conservative side of the scale.” Musk made it even better by saying, “Today’s Democratic Party has been hijacked by extremists.”

Liberals went ape. Leftist David Leavitt responded to the image, tweeting, “This is propaganda.” As opposed to, say, MSNBC?

“It’s now 100% clear that Musk is part of the GOP propaganda apparatus,” tweeted mentally challenged radio host and MSNBC contributor Dean Obeidallah. “I know you were hoping to be wrong–but it’s clear that Elon Musk is exactly as vile as you thought he was.”

Race hustler Shaun King wasn’t amused by Musk’s graphic. He tweeted, “The right didn’t move at all during the past 20 years? Zero movement? That’s what this illustration says.” “Sorry you reversed this, Muskrat,” huffed not very clever name caller Keith Olbermann.

“With this kind of take, I’m not so sure your ‘public square’ will be such a nice place,” MSNBC anchor Katie Phang tweeted. “All the brain damage of Ronald Reagan, but none of the charm,” tweeted failed novelist Jacob Bacharach.

Has-been singer Richard Marx tweeted, “I’m an independent who’s voted for both parties throughout my life. Please offer a Democratic equivalent to banning books, outlawing abortion or supporting and enabling an insurrection.” Ummm, let’s see, Disinformation Governance Board, outlawing guns, and siding with America’s enemies for 50 years.

MENSA member Valerie Bertinelli hit Musk, tweeting, “I don’t know who or what’s been brainwashing you but wake up and think for yourself.”

MSNBC shill Jonathan Alter tweeted, “Given his new purchase, this is an ominous tweet by @elonmusk and a poorly-informed one. One of our major political parties has become a white grievance party that is set to renominate an authoritarian, pro-Putin demagogue who tried to stage a coup. It’s not the Democrats.” Awww, Jonathan is very upset. Must have really hit a nerve.
