If you choose to idolize him, that's cool, but being a freaking jerk to people who don't share your idolatry is low-rent.


Like I tell fanbois on game development forums - you can gobble that virtual knob all day long, but the devs aren't giving you any free lewtz. Elon will never know how much you love him, and he wouldn't care even if he did.
But very Elon Musk, don't you think?

And all of his other ventures subsidized to the tune of $billions get that savings right back from the US taxpayers, with bucketloads of interest.

Musk's ventures are a proven, easily observable net drain on the US taxpayer. We give him way more than he pays back by any calculation. Pardon me if I don't think he needs added to Mt. Rushmore just this minute.

Yeah, he does share Trump's intolerance for being questioned, challenged, criticized, etc. They are very similar people, in all reality. Musk just gets cool points because instead of using his sociopathy for Manhattan real estate and golf courses, he uses it for putting sportscars into outer space. They're both grifters/hustlers and Musk just digs on nerdy sci fi stuff, where Trump is more old school investor.

And Musk fanbois are Trumpsters on steroids. The most fanatic, zealous Trumpster is small change compared to the average Musk acolyte. It's like a 12 year old girl defending why she loves Teen Beat's latest heartthrob of the month in the special love & kisses issue.

Musk believes democracy would not exist any longer if not for the United States, saying that it prevented this disappearance on three occasions through its participation in World War I, World War II and the Cold War. Musk also stated that he thinks "it would be a mistake to say the United States is perfect, it certainly is not. There have been many foolish things the United States has done and bad things the United States has done."
Yes, far more intelligent than the current moron in chief
