The fact that this dude has lost his mind has never been more obvious but people continue to think he’ll shit world saving tits someday or something. I don’t know what to tell you, no capitalist billionaire is coming to save you. Even I didn’t think the guy would sink this low though. So he’s an environmentalist who simultaneously donates to preserve the political power of the climate change denial party, and technically believes the environment is doomed. Gotcha. Well, to his credit 40,000 dollars is like 5 bucks to someone like him and it wouldn’t be surprising to me at all if he donates at least as much money to the Democrats to make sure whoever is in power is conveniently in his pocket. That’s what most tech company’s do when you get down to it. Still, holy crap is this “let’s colonize Mars” fucker dangerously batshit. I’ve been saying that for a while now if you’ve been paying attention. (from Salon):
“Reports indicate that Musk was one of the top donors for a Republican PAC named Protect the House.
Filings show that the Tesla and SpaceX CEO donated $33,900 to the PAC, which is dedicated to keeping Republicans in control of Congress. The PAC raised over $8 million in quarter two, according to filings compiled by ProPublica.
The top donors of the PAC include Sheldon Adelson, the Vegas casino magnate, and Robert McNair, the owner of the NFL’s Houston Texans. Although Adelson and McNair’s contributions far outweighed Musk’s — Adelson and McNair each gave $371,500 respectively, while Musk gave $33,900 — Musk was one of the top 50 donors of the PAC.
Musk’s contributions were startling considering his politics. Musk is a self-proclaimed socialist who says he started his automobile company, in part, to combat climate change. He’s been an outspoken critic of climate-change deniers.”
