    Elon Musk Tells Bill Maher Tucker Carlson Has Bigger Audience Now Than Ever

    Published on

    Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, and Bill Maher, an HBO talk show presenter, share many similarities, as does Tucker Carlson.

    All three men oppose cancel culture whenever possible, and all three consider wokeism a threat to the United States.

    When Elon Musk appeared on Bill Maher’s HBO talk show “Real Time” on Friday, he and Maher discussed Tucker Carlson and why his audience is larger than ever before, as well as what the “woke mind virus” is and how it spreads.

    “You’re a likable guy. They attack you a lot and you seem to laugh it off, which I think is fantastic,” Maher said to Musk to begin the interview. “I love it that you have a sense of humor because a guy as important as you who makes changes could use your powers for evil and not good.”

    On the subject of Carlson and his Twitter-posted video that has garnered close to 80 million views, Musk explained why Tucker’s and anyone’s platform is larger on Twitter than on television.

    According to him, the Carlson video attracted “a lot of people’s attention.”

    “Twitter has a tremendous audience. So there’s 250 million people that spend an average of half an hour a day on Twitter,” the CEO said. “It’s about 120 to 130 million user hours per day and it’s been increasing.”

    The two also discussed what they termed the “woke mind virus” which appears to be sweeping the nation.

    “I think a lot of people thought when you bought Twitter that this is kind of an outlier, like… what doesn’t fit with these other things you’re doing? I never thought that because I think you’re dealing with big civilizational issues and problems. And I was right on your page. I think Twitter is one of them,” the host said. “I mean, you have talked about this ‘woke mind virus’ in really apocalyptic terms. You should explain why you don’t think it’s hyperbole to say things like it’s ‘pushing civilization towards suicide. First of all, what is the world mind virus? And if we don’t deal with this, nothing else can get done.”

    “So I think we need to be very cautious about anything that is anti-meritocratic and anything that results in the suppression of free speech,” the CEO said. “So, you know, those are two other aspects of the woke mind virus that I think are very dangerous is that it’s anti-meritocratic. You can’t question things. Even the questioning is bad. So, you know, another way… [it’s almost synonymous] with cancel culture.”

    “You and I are both in that little group of people, maybe it’s a bigger group now, who are called conservative, who haven’t really changed,” the host went on to say.

    “It’s bizarre that we’ve come to this point where- free speech used to be a left or a liberal value, and yet we see from the quote ‘left’ a desire to actually censor. And that seems crazy,” the CEO said. “I mean, I think we should be extremely concerned about anything that undermines the First Amendment. There’s a reason for the First Amendment… People came from countries where they could not speak freely and where saying certain things would get thrown into prison. And they were like, well, we don’t want that here. And by the way, in many parts of the world, including part of what the people might think are relatively similar to the United States, the speech laws are draconian.”

    Even though Musk is “the mayor of Tweettown,” the host admitted that he no longer uses Twitter because “the mob of Mean Girls is still there” and “it’s so easy to get canceled.”

    “I don’t even know what pisses them off. They’re so nuts, these kids,” the host said. “I feel like I’m walking on a roof with a blindfold. I could fall off any time.”

    “You have to say well what does canceled mean,” the CEO said. “Yes, people attack you on Twitter, that’s one thing. But frankly, that’s just an increase engagement. So I would just ignore it.” CONTINUE READING…
