Elon Musk: Democrat Party Has Been ‘Hijacked By Extremists’

Fact checked

Prospective new Twitter owner Elon Musk says that the Democrat Party “has been hijacked by extremists” who are determined to eradicate free speech in America.

The world’s richest man has continued to respond to criticism from the far-left regarding his $44 billion dollar purchase of Twitter via the social media network.

On Thursday, Musk tweeted a diagram showing how the Overton Window has been dragged so far left, that people who not so long ago considered themselves liberals are now being lumped in with the right-wing as “bigots.”

Critics responded by claiming that voting records show Republicans have moved further right. Via Summit News:

However, as Tim Urban explained, a fringe and noisy extremist minority on the left “has become very *culturally* powerful & out of fear, the rest of the left has often allowed them to speak (and make policies) for the whole left.”

“So even though the left hasn’t moved that far left (as is shown by voting results), the left is in a sense being held hostage by their extreme wing, making a lot of people who enthusiastically voted for Obama feel politically homeless today,” he added.

Musk responded to the discussion by asserting, “I strongly supported Obama for President, but today’s Democratic Party has been hijacked by extremists.”

The Tesla founder has previously described the woke cult as “one of the biggest threats to modern civilization.”

He has also labeled Joe Biden a “damp sock puppet,” asserting that the president “is treating the American public like fools.”

As we highlighted yesterday, the regime is so petrified of Musk turning Twitter into a true free speech platform, they have set up a special ‘disinformation unit’ under the auspices of the Department of Homeland Security.

The unit will be run by Nina Jankowicz, a woman who previously promoted the false disinformation that the Hunter Biden laptop story was part of a fake Russian propaganda campaign.
