Americans More Upset At Elon Musk Spending His Own Money To Acquire Twitter Than $55 Billion Of Their Own Money Stoking WWIII

Since April, when Elon Musk first made the offer to buy Twitter, the establishment left has been in an uproar. Hit pieces have been rolling from the NY Times and Washington Post, essentially calling Musk a Nazi, white supremacist who wants to give his fellow far right Nazis a platform to spread hate. While none of that is actually true, it is a matter of public record that Musk is spending $44 billion to purchase the company.

As their attempts to paint Musk as a Nazi continue to fail, others in the establishment left have called out Musk for the money he’s spending. Musk could help the homeless, feed the hungry, or revitalize infrastructure, but instead, he bought Twitter — so he’s the devil. 

Never mind the fact that he was the world’s second largest charity donor in 2021 — and he did so without publicly stating it. 

As the establishment left continues to flail about, demanding Elon do what they say with his money, they are disgustingly silent on their money going to prolong a war in Ukraine in which millions are suffering.

Instead of calling out the Biden regime for pouring money into the black hole of the Ukrainian war, the establishment left is reeling over Musk buying Twitter. Their silence has facilitated a massive transfer of wealth to some of the most hateful, corrupt, and deadly people in the country, and they couldn’t care less.

To understand why this money flowing to Ukraine is such an atrocity, we need only look back at the country’s recent history.

In 2019, Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky was elected to president of Ukraine after running on a platform of ending the conflict in the Donbass region and making peace with Russia. Unfortunately, however, these goals were not in synch with the US hegemony and instead of pushing for peace, the US supported the far right neo-Nazis who promised to kill Zelensky if he sought peace. 

Over the next two years, the United States continued to funnel billions in weapons, money, and training into Ukraine, ensuring a future conflict with Russia by instigating military conflict directly on their border. In February of this year, Russian president Vladimir Putin announced that a line had been crossed and he then invaded Ukraine, kicking off a violent and deadly war.

Just a few weeks into the war, Russia offered concessions as spokesman Dmitry Peskov announced that Moscow will end the invasion immediately if Ukraine amends its constitution to ensure it stays neutral and doesn’t join NATO, it acknowledges Crimea as Russian territory, and recognizes the separatist republics of Donetsk and Luhansk as independent states.

Since then, the United States has recommended that Ukraine not accept a peace deal and instead continue to allow their people to be used as cannon fodder while US taxpayers are fleeced for billions to fight a proxy war with Russia.

Since the war began in February, Biden authorized $1.3 billion followed by an additional $13.6 billion. That is $15 billion of your tax dollars that have gone to Ukraine to arm literal Nazis in the region. Then, on Tuesday, the House passed yet another massive spending bill, authorizing another $40 billion in your tax dollars to arm Nazis and keep the country at war.

As Americans seethe in anger over Musk’s purchase of Twitter, they are cheering on Bono and the politicians visiting Ukraine for shameless photo ops. While millions of American children teeter on the verge of starvation, Congress voted 368 to 57 to send another $40 billion to the country — bringing the total to $54.9 billion — for war.

But by all means, direct your hatred to an eccentric billionaire spending his own money on things he wants.

Encouraging Ukraine to take the deal offered by Russia would be far more effective than US tax dollars at ending the suffering and helping Ukrainians. But that doesn’t help the military industrial complex like your tax dollars do.

As the rest of the stock market crashes, weapons and oil stocks aren’t feeling the same heat, and this is by design. Your tax dollars are ensuring weapons companies rake in massive profits while US sanctions create a windfall for Big Oil.

America is on the precipice of an unprecedented food shortage, supply chain disruptions, and runaway inflation — all thanks to the US government — and somehow Elon Musk is the target of their anger.
