Elmo is Peak Capitalism
The system that allowed a racist charlatan to control electric cars, space travel and Twitter is broken
Watching Twitter transform into Elmo’s personal misogynistic, racist cult is entertaining in a macabre way. It’s also the proverbial sign on the wall. It’s been clear who he is for a long time, yet we have done nothing to stop him.
I can no longer come to any other conclusion — our system is not working anymore. Maybe we do need a “revolution” after all.
Our “free capitalist” system has allowed a pro-Putin, white supremacist psychopath, who hasn’t moved past adolescence emotionally, to accumulate $200,000,000,000 which he is using to destroy the society that allowed him to get rich in the first place.
Now he has 118,500,000 followers on Twitter to psychologically assault with his lies along with an army of obedient cult members to enforce his proclamations. He is also handpicking the worst propagandists in the world to help him.
No one person in a sane society should have this much power, especially an anti-democratic psychopath like Elmo. The system is broken.
For example, this morning Elmo had a racist brainfart about Ferguson which he apparently picked up from 4chan and deleted, but the damage was done. This is a pure lie that has been trending for hours.
A few hours before that Elmo agreed with neo-Nazi Malaysian propagandist Ian Miles Cheong that Black Lives Matter is a “scam” “built on a lie.”
He has not deleted this one.
Elmo is now overtly running the largest psyop in history in conjunction with the rest of the “PayPal Mafia” in the project to indoctrinate and brainwash tens of millions of Americans into an anti-democratic cult. Ultimately, the goal is the destruction of global liberal democracy. They are not shy about it.
In this tweet from today, “hew closer to the truth” and “earn the trust of the people” are euphemisms for indoctrinating and brainwashing people. He is describing a psyop.
Any system that allows this level of harm to occur in the open with no way to combat it is fundamentally, irrevocably flawed. We need a big upgrade or we need a new system entirely.
Twitter is going to get much worse. Elmo is going to let all the QAnon and neo-Nazi accounts back on. The vortex of hate and lies is going to grow even stronger. It’s impossible to calculate the damage this will do to the collective American psyche. This decision is going to get people killed.
I should note that “provided they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam” are excuses for censoring accounts he doesn’t like.
I will be shocked if he unsuspends me or Rebekah Jones.
Regardless, Elmo is cancer on America. A metastasizing, aggressive tumor that is transforming vital parts of the system, including space travel, electric cars, satellites and communications into weapons for spreading to other vital organs of democracy to destroy them.
We are going to need an aggressive strategy to stop this from causing fatal damage. Elmo’s purchase of Twitter and his subsequent actions prove that he is an enemy combatant of the United States and the government should treat him like one.
If you are still on Twitter you need to be prepared for what you are going to be facing — a psychological warfare attack by a pro-Putin, anti-democratic cult. Tweeting is now information warfare in enemy territory. Feel free to stay and fight, but just know what you’re in for. 🏴☠️
And, if Elmo does accidentally give me my account back I will point everyone to my Substack and Mastodon before roasting him until he bans me again.
