Celebrities, liberals, and media members are voicing their frustration with billionaire Elon Musk after his significant donation to a political organization loyal to the Republican Party was uncovered.
Despite considering himself a “socialist” and supporting many liberal views, Musk’s critics blasted him for seemingly being a hypocrite on issues such as climate change.
By the way, I am actually a socialist. Just not the kind that shifts resources from most productive to least productive, pretending to do good, while actually causing harm. True socialism seeks greatest good for all.

According to election filings published by ProPublica, Musk donated $33,900 last quarter to Protect the House, a PAC dedicated to maintaining Republican control of the House.
The PAC raised more than $8 million in the second quarter, data shows. Robert McNair, owner of the NFL’s Houston Texans, and businessman Sheldon Adelson were the PAC’s largest donors, each contributing $371,500.
They alleged Musk’s donation proves he is not an ally of progressive causes, and instead shows he is a closeted conservative.
Nice to know the person responsible for making electric cars is able to divorce himself from climate change by donating to the very people who deny its existence. I traded my Tesla in last week after my friend’s Tesla caught on fire, so I saved a trip https://t.co/rDqiERd8qt
