SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk was threatened by a Russian official and the White House has nothing to say about it? Seems strange, right? Musk is an American threatened by a foreign official but rather than condemn Russia, the White House has super focused on how they can reverse his recent purchase of Twitter.
Biden claims that he wants to help Ukraine, right? He just pitched a $40 billion dollar bill for more aid while American stores remain baby formula-free and families break under inflation and shortages. You would think that Musk sending his internet service to Ukraine for free to help in their efforts would get him some sort of notoriety from the White House, but no…
Musk posted a translated threat he received from the Russian official:
“From the testimony of the captured commander of the 36th Marine Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel Dmitry Kormyankov, it turns out that the internet terminals of Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite company were delivered to the militants of the Nazi Azov Battalion and the Ukrainian Marines in Mariupol by military helicopters,” states the translated message, which Dmitry Rogozin, the head of Russia’s space agency, sent to Russian media. “According to our information, the delivery of the Starlink equipment was carried out by the Pentagon.
“Elon Musk, thus, is involved in supplying the fascist forces in Ukraine with military communication equipment,” the message continues. “And for this, Elon, you will be held accountable like an adult – no matter how much you’ll play the fool.”
I think it’s safe to assume that Musk knows he’s on his own in terms of support from this administration. So what did Musk do? He brushed them off. “If I die under mysterious circumstances, it’s been nice knowin ya,” Musk wrote shortly after.
Musk’s mother, Maye Musk, didn’t find his response funny and I feel like that’s pretty understandable. Her son might not be in the safest country for this. The US borders are a joke, thanks to Biden.
I would normally think that someone like Musk is too high-profile to unalive but the reality is Putin would be doing Democrats a favor if they carried out a hit. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
