This Billionaire Is Cleaning House – WOKE Employees FIRED!
(TheRedWire.com) – Since billionaire Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk moved to purchase Twitter, he’s become much more political than many expected. The tech mogul has never feared controversy or making unpopular moves. Perhaps that explains why he decided to terminate two employees associated with Tesla’s LGBTQ+ activities.
On May 19, Musk hinted that he would make some business decisions that could make woke liberals very upset. In a Twitter exchange, one follower asked Musk why he would jeopardize getting a human to Mars and informing people of artificial intelligence dangers. The billionaire tweeted that a “woke mind virus” would end civilization before humans could reach the red planet unless people stopped it and hinted he might face political attacks in the near future.
On Monday, June 20, Tesla apparently laid off some individuals over their woke attitudes. Tesla let LGBTQ+ volunteer president Bobby Beretta-Paris go after five years of service to the company. Additionally, Tesla fired a software engineer involved in the company’s diversity program last week. Tesla had reportedly promoted both employees three times during their tenure with the company.
Just curious…what is your motivation to become politically active? Why make yourself a target? You are trying to get mankind to Mars and alert the public to the danger of AI. Why sabotage these worthwhile goals by wading into political controversy? Is it worth it?

Musk has taken heat recently for decrying Democrats and flipping to the GOP. On Wednesday, June 15, the billionaire said he voted Republican in the Texas special election for the first time ever. That election saw GOP candidate Mayra Flores (R-TX) win a Texas border seat, handing Republicans a victory there for the first time in over 100 years.
