As Sir Bedivere (Terry Jones) put it in “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” who is this who is so wise in the ways of finance and etiquette? Perhaps Thornton Mellon (Rodney Dangerfield) to Dr. Diane Turner (Sally Kellerman) in “Back to School”?
Not even close.
The tweeter was former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan, responding to Elon Musk’s tweet of “my pronouns are/Prosecute Fauci.” The Tesla-Twitter boss also got a rise out of Alexander Vindman, star witness of the “bombshell” 2019 impeachment hearings against Donald Trump. Vindman compared Musk to the famed Nazi propagandist he misspelled as “Geobbles,” like some compact car or Star Wars character.
Musk also caught a blast from Baylor virology professor Dr. Peter Hotez. Like Sollozo with mobster Bruno Tattaglia in “The Godfather,” Hotez is on Anthony Fauci’s payroll for big money. Hotez wants those who criticize Fauci to be prosecuted under hate crimes laws, so it’s no surprise he wanted Musk to take down his tweet. He didn’t, and Musk also got a rise out of Keith Olbermann.
Back in his sportscaster days, Olbermann fancied himself a wit by describing NBA star Arvydas Sabonis as “Our Vidas.” Rebranded as a media sage, Olberman suggested that Fauci sue Musk. The former MSNBC star also wondered “what terrorist or foreign influence is involved” and what can be done to stop Musk. Fauci’s tweet chorus thus proves instructive about Musk and Trump alike.
President Trump achieved energy independence and put Americans back to work at record levels. Trump started no new wars and got allies to pay more for their own defense. Trump’s Abraham Accords expanded the prospects for peace in the Middle East. Trump also took out master terrorists Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Qasem Soleimani.
Despite these and other victories, Trump’s most significant achievement could be his accomplishments as a whistleblower. He called out the FBI for the attempt to take down a duly elected president and called for draining the Washington swamp. He ripped fake news, partisan witch hunts, and a lot more.
For that, Twitter de-platformed the president. Elon Musk, who does have some money, thought that wasn’t right. He bought Twitter and began revealing the way the platform became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democrats, the deep state, and the Biden Junta. By calling out deep state frauds like Fauci, Musk becomes the nation’s chief whistleblower. In that role he should expect the same treatment as Trump, a full-on attack from all sides.
As Chuck Schumer observed, the intelligence community has “six ways from Sunday of getting back at you.” So as Teddy Lewis (Mickey Rourke) told Ned Racine (William Hurt) in “Body Heat,” “you better watch your step.” Musk should also be on the lookout for FBI moles still embedded in his company. The Biden Junta’s private Gestapo will try to insert new people.
A key question on the Twitter application should be something like, “Did Josef Stalin, Xi Jinping, Fidel Castro, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Peter Strzok or Anthony Fauci ever do anything with which you disagreed?” Musk should also expect lawsuits, regulatory harassment, and even violent attacks in the style of 2020. The FBI will doubtless look the other way, and the Biden Junta will call it a “peaceful protest.”
Nothing will be off the table, but Musk should not hold back. The Twitter boss is off to a good start and knows how to pick his targets. Responses to the “prosecute Fauci” tweet have been revelatory.
Witness Watergate veteran John Dean tweeting about the “radical and un-American statement of Musk” who does not understand “American norms” and “is dangerous.” No inkling that a man who claims “I represent science” could be dangerous, and nothing about Fauci’s disastrous record, chronicled at length in The Real Anthony Fauci by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Keith Olberman has yet to learn that falsely branding people foreign spies is a classic Stalinist tactic showcased in the Moscow Trials, as Sidney Hook outlined in Out of Step: An Unquiet Life in the Twentieth Century. Like many in the establishment media, and politicians like Gavin Newsom and Joe Biden, the television drone shows little evidence that he has read much of anything.
It has evidently not occurred to bemedaled blowhard Alexander Vindman that the comparison of Anthony Fauci to Nazi doctor Josef Mengele may be unfair—to Mengele. The real prize goes to John Brennan, one of the 51 “intelligence community” veterans who branded the Hunter Biden laptop “Russian disinformation” and charged that Elon Musk has no class.
As a college student in 1976 John Brennan was so classy he voted for slobbering Stalinist Gus Hall, presidential candidate of the Communist Party USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Soviet Union. As Ron Radosh (The Rosenberg File) noted “it’s rather difficult to understand how Brennan was taken into the CIA, when a few years later [Clinton national security advisor] Anthony Lake was discredited simply because he thought Hiss might be innocent.”
Alger Hiss was a Stalinist spy in the State Department. For the full story, see Perjury: The Hiss-Chambers Case, by Allen Weinstein. It is also difficult to understand how a Gus Hall voter, who never should have been hired in the first place, came to run the CIA. So if Elon Musk tweeted “my pronouns are investigate/Brennan,” it would be hard to blame him.
Whatever you think about Elon Musk, he’s doing good work exposing government censorship. Like Victor Laszlo (Paul Henried) with Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) in “Casablanca,” the American people can welcome Elon Musk to the fight. Maybe this time our side will win.
