I don’t really *believe* the conspiracy theories about Musk being a complete frontman and a shill offering controlled opposition.
Those theories might be true, but I don’t believe them based on the amount of evidence currently being offered.
What I do believe is that Elon has not followed through with anything good thus far, and has left us with blue balls on all of his grand agendas.
Elon Musk has offered to buy Twitter for about \$41 billion in cash, saying the social media company he has often criticized needs to go private to see effective changes.
Musk’s price of \$54.20 per share, which was disclosed in a regulatory filing on Thursday, represents a 38% premium to Twitter’s April 1 close, the last trading day before Tesla CEO’s more than 9% stake in the company was made public.
The billionaire rejected an offer to join Twitter’s board earlier this week after disclosing his stake in the company, a move which analysts said signaled his intention to take over the company as a board seat would have limited his stake to just under 15%.
“Since making my investment I now realize the company will neither thrive nor serve this societal imperative in its current form. Twitter needs to be transformed as a private company,” Musk said in a letter to Twitter Chairman Bret Taylor.
Musk, who calls himself a free-speech absolutist, has been critical of the social media platform and its policies, and recently ran a poll on Twitter asking users if they believed the platform adheres to the principle of free speech.
“My offer is my best and final offer and if it is not accepted, I would need to reconsider my position as a shareholder,” Musk added.
Twitter will review Musk’s offer with advice from Goldman Sachs & Co and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, a source told Reuters.
The company’s shares jumped 12% in premarket trading, while those of Tesla fell about 1%. The total deal value was calculated based on 763.58 million shares outstanding, according to Refinitiv data.
I think we can all say this makes things a bit more interesting.
Frankly, I don’t know enough about any of this to know if this is a real offer that Elon actually believes could be accepted.
What I do know is that control of the narrative that Twitter provides is worth a lot more than \$41 billion, and if a bunch of Jews at Goldman are making the decision, they are probably going to say “no.”
Granted, finance Jews are less woke/liberal/whatever than other Jews, but they are still Jews.
The other thing I know is that regardless of Musk’s titular position as “richest man on earth,” Jews could destroy him if they wanted to. Unless he really decided to go to war. But I don’t think he is a Christian, and I don’t think that someone who isn’t a Christian (or like, a member of some other serious religion, to be fair) is going to be willing to go to war with the Jews.
Elon does have eight kids, and probably has a stake in the future of the earth because of that. But he’s also trying to put computer chips in people’s brains.
I am not optimistic or even hopeful. But the fact that he is ostensibly getting much more aggressive piqued my interest.
If Elon Musk buys Twitter, I'm out! (Full disclosure: I own a Tesla.) #ElonMusk

Instead of using that wealth to help make the world a better place, he wants to use it to buy Twitter. Another reason why we need to tax billionaires more and close all the loopholes.

He could do so much good with 41 billion, but because the gop gives those tax breaks this is what we end up with
