Elon Musk: ‘Wokeness’ Is the ‘Biggest Threat to Modern Civilization’
'Do we want a humorless society that is simply rife with condemnation and hate?'
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has declared that political correctness is one of the biggest threats to civilization.
During an interview with conservative satire website the Babylon Bee, Musk blasted 'wokeness' and attempted to cancel comedian Dave Chappelle.
Musk said that the “woke mind virus” is “arguably one of the biggest threats to modern civilization.”
“It should be OK to be humorous. Wokeness basically wants to make comedy illegal, which is not cool,” Musk said.
“Do we want a humorless society that is simply rife with condemnation and hate?”
"At its heart, wokeness is divisive, exclusionary, and hateful."
"It basically gives mean people… a shield to be mean and cruel, armored in false virtue."
Musk also blasted CNN amid news of Chris Cuomo's long-time producer being outed as a pedophile after being charged with underage sex crimes this month.
One of the hosts suggested that Musk “could be on CNN right now,” he responded:
“I’m not perverted enough, I guess.”
As Neon Nettle reported:
Griffin was arrested earlier in December after being indicted by a federal grand jury for using a facility of interstate commerce to entice children into sexual activity.
The Babylon Bee also mocked the CNN scandal with the headline, “CNN HR Department Considers Adding 'Are You A Creepy Pervert?' To Employment Application.”
Musk also took a veiled jab at fellow technology CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s Metaverse.
“I think we’re far from disappearing into the Metaverse. It sounds just kind of buzzwordy.
“I don’t want to be like some old codger dismissing the internet,” Musk said, adding, however, that he is currently “unable to see a compelling Metaverse situation.”
Earleir this month, Musk also warned that population decline will be the death of civilization.
While speaking at the Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council Summit, Musk warned the world is becoming underpopulated.
“I can’t emphasize this enough: There are not enough people,” Musk said via a video call from a new Tesla factory.
