Elon Musk put a bullseye on his back when he purchased Twitter for $44 billion.
The social media platform was the favorite plaything of the left-wing establishment.
And Musk revealed the shocking reason why he’s fighting the left’s “woke” army.
Famed biographer Walter Isaacson was granted access to Elon Musk for his upcoming book about the tech billionaire.
In their conversations, Musk gave a hint as to why he was so eager to buy Twitter and turn it into a free speech platform.
Musk wrote in a tweet, “Unless the woke mind virus, which is fundamentally anti-science, anti-merit, and anti-human in general, is stopped, civilization will never become multiplanetary.”
Musk saw the “woke mind virus” up close and personal when his son Xavier “transitioned” and began identifying as Vivian.
Not only that, but Vivian became a full-blown communist according to Musk.
Isaacson wrote in a book excerpt, “Musk’s anti-woke sentiments were partly triggered by the decision of his oldest child, Xavier, then 16, to transition. ‘Hey, I’m transgender, and my name is now Jenna,’ she texted the wife of Elon’s brother. ‘Don’t tell my dad.’ When Musk found out, he was generally sanguine, but then Jenna became a fervent Marxist and broke off all relations with him.”
Musk lamented, “She went beyond socialism to being a full communist and thinking that anyone rich is evil.”
Isaacson continued, “The rift pained him more than anything in his life since the infant death of his firstborn child Nevada. ‘I’ve made many overtures,’ he says, ‘but she doesn’t want to spend time with me.’ He blamed it partly on the ideology he felt that Jenna imbibed at Crossroads, the progressive school she attended in Los Angeles. Twitter, he felt, had become infected by a similar mindset that suppressed right-wing and anti-establishment voices.”
Crossroads is notorious for being far to the left.
In his first book, “Hollywood, Interrupted,” Andrew Breitbart spent a chapter in the book slamming the school.
Breitbart mentioned how Crossroads had “crossdressing day” and “ménage à prom” where students could buy tickets to the prom in groups of three.
And that was 18 years ago.
There’s no telling how off-the-rails the school is today.
When Musk took over Twitter, he understood there needed to be a counterweight to the “woke mind virus” that has overtaken so much of society.
Musk is attempting to bring back an ethos of free speech and he is not alone in his contempt for left-wing indoctrination mills.
Megyn Kelly explained on her podcast that she pulled her kids out of a posh private school in New York City because of “woke” teachers and administrators.
Kelly’s last straw was when a teacher told the boys in her son’s class that one of them would grow up to be a killer cop.
Conservative pundit Glenn Beck mentioned that his relationship with his daughter had become strained after she attended Fordham University.
Beck said, “If you think your kids are safe any place, they’re not. If you think [biblical] values are being taught, they’re not. This generation is more lost than the last generation, and the last generation was really quite lost. The one that is currently coming up is an absolute nightmare. And these people are training our kids to be something that we don’t want them necessarily to be.”
Beck made those comments ten years ago.
He was correct, and it’s only getting worse.
