Elon Musk SLAMS Big Tech ‘Death Cult’ on Joe Rogan Podcast

November 1st, 2023 3:15 PM

Elon Musk, the owner of X (formerly Twitter) slammed the “death cult” in charge of social media platforms during an interview on Joe Rogan’s podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience.

Musk spoke candidly about the former regime at Twitter, describing it as an “arm of the government” in the Oct. 31 episode of the podcast. Musk also confirmed information we already knew: that the social media platform censored Republicans more than Democrats as part of a social media censorship campaign. “Republicans were suppressed at ten times the rate of Democrats [on Twitter],” Musk said.

Earlier in the interview, Musk slammed Twitter as a state publication. “The degree to which Twitter was simply an arm of the government was not well understood by the public. It was like Pravda,” he said of the Jack Dorsey-led Twitter regime, comparing it to the propagandist newspaper of the Soviet Union. “A state publication, it’s the way to think of old Twitter.”

Musk later shared his support of free speech after the interview. “Freedom of speech is priceless,” he posted on X alongside a clip where he told Rogan that Twitter was worth “everything” when it comes to protecting free speech.

Previously, Musk stated that free speech must be preserved if civilization was to survive those who are hell-bent on destroying it. “This is a battle for the future of civilization,” he tweeted at the time. “If free speech is lost even in America, tyranny is all that lies ahead.”

Musk also said he purchased the platform to save humanity from a far-left cult promoting the extinction of mankind to save the environment. Musk warned that executives who are a part of such a cult are still in charge at Google and Facebook.

“I'm pro-environment, but … if you take environmentalism to an extreme, you start to view humanity as a plague on the surface of the earth; like, like a mold or something,” he said, adding that the expansion of human population in no way hurts the planet. “You could 10-times the population without destroying the rainforest.”

Musk accused leftist elitists of  going “too far” in the hatred of mankind.

“They've gone way too far. If you start thinking that humans are bad, then the natural conclusion is humans should die out,” he cautioned. “That death cult was in charge of social media – and still largely is at Google and Facebook, by the way. I'm not in favor of human extinction. They are, and they can go to hell."
