Elon Musk poked the Democratic establishment in the eye.
Twitter was supposed to be their propaganda machine.
Now Hollywood is already planning one major hit piece against Musk.
Elon Musk followed through on his plan to purchase Twitter and take it private.
He promised to bring free speech back to the platform, and leftists are sweating bullets.
Despite his liberal street cred, Musk is detested by Democrats.
He’s a card-carrying member of the ACLU, has donated money to various liberal causes, and created a wildly successful electric car.
Under normal circumstances, Musk would be a hero of the left.
In fact, he used to be celebrated; he once made a cameo in Iron Man 2.

There is no chance “woke” Disney would ever let him appear in another one of their projects.
Now Hollywood is actively working to take him down.
The New York Times and FX are uniting on a project called “Elon Musk’s Crash Course,” which is a negative exposé on Tesla.
Variety reported that ‘Elon Musk’s Crash Course’ is an exposé into Musk’s company Tesla, and its work on self-driving cars. Featuring the reporting from Cade Metz and Neal Boudette of The New York Times, the film will dive into how Tesla’s Autopilot program has resulted in several deaths that Musk and the company has yet to publicly acknowledge, and details Musk’s efforts to kill government investigations into the incidents. Several former Tesla employees will be featured in the documentary, speaking out against Musk for the first time.”
Musk frustrates the left so badly because he refuses to parrot their talking points.
Other members of the billionaire class have been able to avoid the tireless scrutiny by pledging loyalty to the Democrat Party.
For instance, few members of the Left take Jeff Bezos to task for owning The Washington Post.
One Twitter user pointed out that the targeting of Musk over car deaths is a bad-faith attack.
12 people have died by Tesla's Autopilot. Ever. Meanwhile, 1,350,000 people die PER YEAR by automobile accidents. pic.twitter.com/QlnHPdy6aY

In addition to the FX/New York Times documentary, many news outlets have run hit pieces on Musk, and the Biden administration has discussed regulating the social media platform.
Leftists do not believe in free speech.
They loved that Twitter was a left-bias company, and now it might be rebalanced.
