Elon Musk Blames Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg For Capitol Riot
Observer.com ^ | 1/7/2021 | Sissi Cao and Jordan Zakarin

In times of social crises in America, big tech billionaires are often amongst the first to speak up—though how they do so varies. Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, unlike many of his peers, didn’t directly speak about the riot that erupted in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday afternoon. But the second-richest man in the world did make it clear that he was watching the news and indeed had a strong opinion about the surreal events that transpired at the U.S. Capitol.

Late Wednesday night, after police had cleared protestors from the Capital ground to allow Congress to resume vote counting and certifying election results, Musk tweeted a meme showing bricks lining up like dominoes. The smallest front brick was labeled “a website to rate women on campus”—a reference to the early version of Facebook—and the largest tile in the back was superimposed with a tweet by The New York Times Magazine correspondent Mark Leibovich that read: “The Capitol seems to be under the control of a man in a Viking hat.”

His message was clear: The shocking rampage on Wednesday was the culmination of years of political and ideological polarization fueled by social media platforms, primarily Facebook. “This is called the domino effect,” Musk tweeted alongside the meme.

They must be financially ruined. They are dangerous and they are selling us out to China.

The opportunities for conservative entrepreneurs is wide open. Economic warfare will be a key in winning.

EO 13848 can be used to ruin him financially and send him to prison for life or worse.

Anyone aiding and abetting a foreign power interfering in a US Election can have their assets seized and prosecuted according to the law.

Seriously thought. I like Elon Musk. He's been red pilled. His electric car Tesla is overrated but I have no problems if its up to the free market to adopt it with zero interference from the government.

Back to the point, my liberal friends and relatives have been talking nonstop about politics. So the way that Facebook (and Twitter but ignore that here) is set up encourages divisiveness. Conservatives by most part, we do not care what Liberals do with their lives as long as they leave us alone. But Liberals (actually Leftists) cannot accept the way we live because we are simply wrong.

I can’t stand Teslas, but SpaceX is probably the most impressive and consequential corporation since Ford Motor Company made the model T.

Elon is busy setting up Starlink. When his rockets finish this task we will have global internet and all this Commie censorship should be a thing of the past.

If this coup was instigated and orchestrated by foreign countries then it is an act of war. If this is the case then, after their domestic agents are dealt with, the retribution should be on a scale and ferocity that would make the ancient Romans recoil in horror.
