Democrats excommunicated Elon Musk over his rightward shift in recent years.
The Left isn’t stopping there attempting to make their once darling tech billionaire Musk pay.
But he just lowered the boom on a left-wing payback attempt.
Elon Musk just made one bold move after a left-wing hostile takeover attempt.
Millennial and Zennial progressives have proven themselves to be perhaps the most entitled people in human history.
They have been trained by radicals in K-12 education and universities to be activists, and they have been emboldened by so many executives and leaders who have bent the knee to their outrageous complaints.
But they met their match in Elon Musk who has gotten fed up with wokeness.
Ever since Musk’s attempt to buy Twitter for $44 billion and take the company private, he has been relentlessly attacked by the Left.
The attacks only intensified when he said he would be voting Republican, and that he did so in a recent special election House race in Texas.
His latest move to the Right led “woke” employees at his aerospace company SpaceX to release an open letter condemning Musk.
Instead of bowing to the mob like Spotify CEO Daniel Ek did after leftists at that company tried to get Joe Rogan dropped from the platform, Musk fired the collaborators.
The New York Times reported that SpaceX “fired employees who helped write and distribute an open letter criticizing the behavior of its chief executive, Elon Musk, said three employees with knowledge of the situation. Some SpaceX employees began circulating the letter, which denounced Mr. Musk’s activity on Twitter, on Wednesday. The letter called the billionaire’s public behavior and tweeting ‘a frequent source of distraction and embarrassment’ and asked the company to rein him in. Mr. Musk is currently closing a $44 billion deal to buy Twitter.”
The sheer arrogance of the employees speaks to how much they have been coddled for so long.
Leftists at SpaceX tried to back Musk into a corner, likely so they could smear him as a hypocrite should he act to cut out the cancer clearly within the ranks and then say he’s being anti-free speech.
Of course, SpaceX isn’t the de facto public square and even if it were, these are employees not users. The fact is any company that would allow employees to openly undermine management in such a way won’t be a company for long.
Nor are the employees who drafted the letter whistleblowers alleging malfeasance or general wrong-doing.
They simply do not like their boss’s public persona and rightward political turn.
If that’s the case, they can quit like anyone else who disapproves of his or her boss.
Instead, the employees drafted a hostage letter and leaked it to the public.
SpaceX President and COO Gwynne Shotwell wrote in response, “The letter, solicitations and general process made employees feel uncomfortable, intimidated and bullied, and/or angry because the letter pressured them to sign onto something that did not reflect their views…We have too much critical work to accomplish and no need for this kind of overreaching activism.”
Recent fiascos at SpaceX, Netflix, and The Washington Post, and how management has handled them, could be signs that the grown-ups in charge have finally gotten sick of the inmates running the asylum.
It’s time for institutions and organizations to be freed from the clutches of small groups of inflexible radicals.
