Musk ain’t having any

I swear, my boy Elon just keeps getting more red-pilled every day, seems like.

BBC Journo Quits Musk Interview After Elon Pushes Back On ‘Hateful Content,’ ‘Misinformation’
Twitter CEO and African-American billionaire Elon Musk yesterday sat down with BBC “journalist” James Clayton for an interview, where the two had a now-viral argument over Twitter’s alleged rise in “hateful content,” as well as Twitter’s COVID “misinformation” policy changes.

During their conversation, Clayton, without any evidence to back himself up, claimed that Musk’s acquisition of the company has resulted in “a rise in hateful content.”

“Content you don’t like or hateful, describe a hateful thing?” Musk asked.

Clayton replied, “I mean you know just content that will elicit a reaction, something I mean something that is slightly racist or slightly sexist, those kinds of things.”

“So you think if something is slightly sexist it should be banned?” Musk retorted. “No, I’m not saying anything,” said Clayton.

“I’m asking for examples. Can you name one example?” Musk said. “Honestly I honestly–” Clayton began before Musk interjected: “Can you name a single example?”

“I’ll tell you why,” the BBC wordsmith said. “Because I don’t actually use that feed anymore because I don’t particularly like it. Actually, a lot of people are quite similar.”

At this point, the journalist cited his lack of interest in Twitter’s “For You” feed as his reason for being unable to cite a single example of hate speech. Musk, unimpressed, ultimately accused the reporter of lying.

Musk replied, “Wait a second, you said you’ve seen more hateful content, but you can’t name a single example, not even one.”

“I’m not sure I used that feed for the last three or four weeks,” Clayton said. “Then how did you see the hateful content?” said Musk.

“Really!?” Clayton cried. “Yes, because you can’t give a single example of hateful content not even one tweet, and yet you’ve claimed the hateful content was high. That’s a false,” Musk explained.

“No,” replied Clayton. “You just lied,” Musk said.

Eventually, Clayton abruptly left the interview, leaving Musk alone to field questions from the audience.

Just as well, really; Elon was WAY more likely to field some halfway-intelligent questions from the audience than he ever would have from a hack propagandist like the “journalist” he handily cut up into pieces-parts. Well done, sir, and good on ya. Now do NPR, while you’re taking care of the light work. Oh wait, he just did.

Elon Musk Reaches Limit, Calls For Defunding NPR: “What hypocrites”
Twitter CEO Elon Musk is calling for defunding NPR after the broadcaster had a meltdown and quit Twitter because Musk is calling them ‘State-affiliated media and Government-funded Media.’ NPR said it will no longer post fresh content to its 52 official Twitter feeds.

NPR cited Twitter’s decision to first label the network “state-affiliated media,” the same term it uses for propaganda outlets in Russia, China and other autocratic countries for making this extraordinary decision. Twitter drives impressions to NPR and after the broadcaster had to institute layoffs you would think they would be thanking Musk.

Musk fired back saying:

“NPR literally said “Federal funding is essential to public radio” on their own website (now taken down).

“What hypocrites!

“Defund NPR.”

Okay, I think I may have just ejaculated in my pants a little bit here.

  1. Given that Elon had access to ALL the Twitter Files, not just the ones he released, he probably learned a LOT more about how deep the rot and corruption goes than most of us can even fathom.

    1. My best guess is he’s doing the same thing Trump obviously did, trying to fix it without sinking the ship, without destroying the country in the process of fixing it.

      1. What I meant was that Elon probably found many more things the Deep State was doing illegally via the emails traffic between the IA and the Twitter employees. Things that, if revealed, might rise to the level of getting him killed. But HE KNOWS more than he’s revealing.

        1. I agree, and understood what you meant (except on the killing part). They *might* result to that of course. But since our entire space program including military is depending on SpaceX, they would have to think long and hard about that.

          I’m just of the opinion that Musk wants to fix the problems without destroying the foundation and I believe that was what Trump was doing as well.

          1. I believe they’re pissed at Musk for showing them up in the Space Program as well.

            Another bunch of money flowing to NASA that was being looted all while the real goal was letting other Space Programs leap above us while Deep State gets rich.

            Damn Musk in the Private Sector demanded RESULTS (to paraphrase Ghostbusters).

            1. Maybe, but I’m not buying that one. They are working together at the moment. NASA selected SpaceX for the human landing part of the moon/mars programs.

              1. You mean the project that is years away and probably really decades, if ever, away?

                1. No, I mean the project that is sitting on the launch pad awaiting a permit to launch from the f’ing FAA.

                  One step at a time. we’ve already sent men to the moon, over half a century ago. Next step is a moon base with “moonies” staying more than a few hours/days. 2 years is the timing for that IMO.

                  Mars, IMO, at least 5-10 years away and quite possibly longer.

                  1. 2 years. Like I said, years away.

                    I’m sure Elon will be ready .

                    You think NASA will be?

                    I bet it’s decades, if ever, away.

                    Elon should just take the project over.

                    1. Even Musk doesn’t have the budget for a full manned moon landing mission.

                      You think NASA will be?
                      Already did it, 54 years ago 🙂
                      NASA sucks these days but there are still a lot of really smart and dedicated people there. Yes, they’ll be on the moon in a relatively short period of time.

                      With Artemis missions, NASA will land the first woman and first person of color on the Moon…

                      What could go wrong…


                    2. There’s a lot of things NASA can’t do that it had done.

                      You could say the same for almost every part of Government these days.

                    3. I see you commented on the Insty thread regarding the Mars helicopter flights, an example of NASA at it’s finest, and no one else is even close.

                    4. Has NASA announced they’re getting a fleet of EV Helicopters for the job? I wouldn’t count that out.

                    5. Out in space solar makes sense, more than here.

                      Watch them switch that to gasoline powered then!

                    6. 🙂

                      NASA still has some of the smartest people on earth working there.
                      They probably realize there ain’t no gas stations on Mars.

                    7. I’m sure they do, and under Trump’s leadership I imagine those people would get the nod and do great things.

                      Now they’re attending re-education programs to learn the correct 57 pronouns.

                    8. And with all that BS, still capable of doing what no one else can –
                      Like helicopters on Mars with an atmosphere 1% of the earth’s density.

                    9. A Helicopter needs to have a human driver.

                      A drone on Mars. Whoop de doo!

                    10. Is an airplane without a pilot a drone?

                      I don’t think you understand the significance of the helicopter (or drone) on the planet Mars, nor the extreme difficulty in the engineering feat. This one is the test bed, more to come. If you are going to have the human race survive they will have to get off this planet and out of this solar system. A base on Mars is just the beginning.

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go.
