ELON Musk has unleashed a tweetstorm forecasting an increase in political attacks against him.

Musk’s politics are under intense scrutiny as his bid to buy Twitter starts to go cold.


Musk has a premonition he’ll be the target of political attacks

The Tesla CEO’s personal politics are difficult to discern as he’s advocated for both conservative and liberal ends.

Musk is an unwavering free speech advocate – his plan to roll back moderation policies on Twitter is a key example of his right-wing tendencies.

Meanwhile, he touts Tesla as “doing more for the environment than any company ever!” – playing to the inherently progressive clean energy initiative.

During the heat of Twitter negotiations, Musk tweeted an infographic of his political position, which suggested that the left has gotten radical enough to leave him behind.

Musk has donated to both Democratic and Republican politicians – for his immense wealth, his donations are in relatively low dollar amounts.

In a lauded tweet that received over 1.5million likes, Musk said “For Twitter to deserve public trust, it must be politically neutral, which effectively means upsetting the far right and the far left equally.”

But in the weeks since, Musk has aligned himself with the right as a voter and provocateur.

He told the hosts of the All In podcast that he would vote Republican for the first time in the upcoming election.

On Twitter, he played a classic conservative tune, writing “Whoever thought owning the libs would be cheap never tried to acquire a social media company!”

The midterm elections will be held on November 8, 2022.
