Elon Musk, appearing in an interview with the satirical publication “The Babylon Bee”, voiced his off-the-cuff thoughts about several topics, ranging from California to Batman to the topic of “wokeness”.
Musk began the interview by lamenting California, saying the state used to be the “land of opportunity”, but now it has become the “land of over-regulation, over-litigation, and scorn.” The Babylon Bee interviewers and Musk agree to say it’s left-leaning policies that have caused this transformation.
“Gavin Newsom is U-Haul salesman of the year,” Musk jokes.
Moving on to another topic, Musk and his interviewers began to discuss the concept of being “woke”.
“Wokeness basically wants to make comedy illegal,” Musk said. “Trying to shut down Chappelle, come on, man, that’s crazy. Do we want a humorless society that is simply rife with condemnation and hate basically? At its heart, wokeness is divisive, exclusionary, and hateful. It basically gives mean people a shield to be mean and cruel, armored in false virtue.”
