So, some guy from South Africa is questioning the American patriotism of a highly decorated veteran that dedicated his life to service of the United States.

What. A. Tool.

"If you look carefully at this article, you may notice I've drawn some subtle parallels to Donald Trump in several dozen places. Musk and Trump do not share the exact same vision of the future, and don't have the same ideology. But they are absolutely coming from the same toxic 'I'm a billionaire and no one has the right to question me' mindset, and are exploiting many of the same flaws in the system to get ahead."

Musk is becoming a bigger piece of shiat by the day.  Vindman is an American hero after he already was an American hero.  He has more character in the corn in his shiat than Elon has in his entire person.

I can't believe I once respected Musk.  F$ck him.

So he wants to be King of Q. He's using Twitter as a delusion and getting high off the sucking and fumes.

Musk has too much power. It crosses borders, and is global. He could cause worldwide chaos at the drop of a hat. It's not a good thing.

I will re-post this here, this is just 1% of what is out there. What is maddeningly frustrating is how our sources of information be it NY Times, WaPO, CNN, etc. never even get close to questioning whether he is full of s**t. And give TED a big middle finger for giving him a platform to spew his con (BTW I have lost all respect for TED).

There's a waitlist, but it's processing pretty quickly. I was in after two days, but the wait is probably up to a few days at this point.

More and more Twitter refugees are appearing on my feed. Right now, the best purpose for my Twitter account is to tweet links to Post.

The more we do that, the more we piss off Das Klei Führer :)

What you don't understand is to them the ability to make billions of dollars makes them more a patriot than any veteran could possibly ever be. Because money.

Well, if you want 3 ads and 4 promoted reels from people you don't and probably will never follow for every 1 puppy you see, then go to Instagram.

If you want to have to click through "Sensitive Content" blur filters for your puppy pictures, go to Mastodon. Really. Content warnings on puppy pictures. And cat pictures. And food pictures. 

If you want a pretty good vibe, but on a service that is still very up and coming and is in desperate need of moderation, because otherwise you'll be seeing dick picks on the Trending page, go to Hive Social. 

I don't actually know what to say if you want puppy pictures on Tumblr, because I'm still figuring it out.😅

Good luck!

It's just a COMPLETE coincidence that the veteran who he's defaming happens to be the one who exposed the Traitor's attempt to extort Ukraine.

Civil in his mind (such as it is) means bowing down and agreeing 110% with whatever he says.

Well, Bellend Musk can go fark himself royally.

I think he's trying to tempt Trump back. But Trump is probably under contract with his investors from Truth or whatever not to use any other platform. Because if Trump ever goes back to Twitter, Truth is dead.

No one is defending mElon.

So...

1: Musk is making an essentially explicitly antisemitic attack on a guy from a Jewish family (who I would assume is himself Jewish but I dunno).  There is no way that anyone ever uses the puppet master line other than to mean "Jews bad", so it's not really even a dog-whistle.

Like, literally he himself listed a dozen accounts repeating a meme and the one and only single account he directly attacked was specifically the jew(-adjacent?) one.  Real farking subtle.

2: Apparently Musk spent 44 billion dollars on a site that's like 80% memes without knowing what a meme is.  That... yeah, that checks out with literally every business decision this walking cancer upon everyone else's efforts to engage functionally in basic capitalism and productive labor has ever made.

3: The fact that 95% of those replies were from unhinged right-whing nutjobs, most of whom went immediately further into conspiracy theories, pretty much summarizes how hard the man has already somehow run Twitter into the ground in less than a month.  You'd always get some of that, but even at its worst (replies to people like Yiannopoulis or David Duke or whatever) you'd maybe get 50% complete nutters, tops.  Like... to be clear, Musk wasn't making a partisan antisemitic attack here, this form of antisemitism is pretty common in tankie circles and the fringe left too.  That all the replies are fascists specifically is a measure of the population of people voluntarily remaining on the site at this point.

4: Yeah, I'm done.  Last time I click on a Twitter link ever, thanks.  I'll never see anything but the specific Boobies at the top of a Fark thread, and frankly I'm probably gonna stop clicking on even those to a large extent.

Like... I know a lot of people are kinda stuck on Twitter to do business, and I feel sorry for them because they're gonna be on there with literally actual nazis and no one else soon and not be able to switch it off because it's the equivalent of a business email in terms of avenue of contact for professional matters... but I'm out too so I don't feel sorry enough to try to help prevent their problem from becoming worse.

Everything Musk has done at twitter has been working toward the goal of turning it into a disinformation tool that benefits his benefactors.

The Peliosi conspiracy, this crap, whatever he says next.

This is what twitter is now. Not even sure it makes the cut for a news aggregator site such as this. It's a glorified telegram propaganda channel now.

It wasn't great before but it's something much worse now.
