Musk Disabled Communications in Crimea Because Putin Told Him To
Elon Musk is an enemy combatant
There is a lot of loose talk in the tech world about how Elon Musk is just “ignorant” about Putin and the situation in Ukraine — he’s just a tech bro over his head. Bullshit.
Elon Musk sent comms equipment into Ukraine but won’t let the Ukrainians use them in the Ukrainian territory of Crimea. That was intentional.
This is not ignorance, it’s an attempt to consolidate his power by gaining a powerful ally, regardless of the fact that the ally is a genocidal dictator with thousands of nukes committing atrocities every day. Musk says Putin told him he would use nukes if Ukraine tries to regain their own territory. So Musk is intentionally making it harder for Ukraine to do it.
When I wrote that Musk attempting to take over Twitter is an act of war, I meant it. Now Musk is literally shaping the battlefield in Putin’s favor.
I am so sick of this shit. Fuck Elon Musk into the Sun.
