Biden’s war on everything Elon Musk

Do you remember way back in 2021 when Elon Musk was the darling of the Left… of the cultural elite? He was building electric cars and then launching them into space on rockets he built. He went to all the black-tie events and dated beautiful celebrities and socialites.

But Musk made the mistake of coming out in favor of free speech, and then he bought Twitter. Something that the Left could not forgive.

He then committed the cardinal sin of releasing the Twitter files, showing how the government both coordinated with and bullied Twitter and other social media platforms to censor speech the government didn’t like particularly around the subject of COVID, vaccines and the laptop from hell. Now, the full force of the government is looking at Musk, to destroy him and his companies.

In August 2023, the U.S. Justice Department filed a lawsuit against SpaceX, Musk’s rocket and spacecraft company, which has extensive government contracts, for allegedly discriminating against refugees in its hiring practices.

The suit claims that, “from at least September 2018 to May 2022, SpaceX routinely discouraged asylees and refugees from applying and refused to hire or consider them, because of their citizenship status, in violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act…” according to an August 24 DOJ news release.

Now, even the EEOC is getting into the act.  The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is suing Tesla for a “pervasive pattern of racial abuse at one of its manufacturing plants and for retaliating against Black employees who complained about stereotyping, hostility, and slurs.  

Black employees described racist imagery as “frequent,” “constant,” “a regular thing,” and occurring “too many times to count,” the lawsuit alleged. Tesla has yet to respond to the lawsuit publicly.

Could all of these allegations from multiple Biden controlled Federal Governmental agencies be true?  Perhaps.  But I do find the timing a little strange, with all of them happening after Mr. Musk had his transformation from Democrat to a Libertarian voice for free speech.  

After all, it was the release of the so-called Twitter files the helped persuade a Federal Court to rule that the Biden Administration likely violated the First Amendment.  As reported by CNN, “The US 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that certain administration officials – namely in the White House, the surgeon general, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation – likely “coerced or significantly encouraged social media platforms to moderate content” in violation of the First Amendment.

One thing is certain.  It definitely that the Biden Administration has put a target on the United States’ most famous African-American immigrant.
