OPINION:

SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk was just accused by a flight attendant of exposing himself to her, touching her thigh and promising to buy her a horse if she had sex with him.

And in a laughable twist of fate, Musk fought back by daring her to describe his privates.


If Musk hadn’t already incurred the anger of the left by daring to fight for free speech with a hostile takeover of Twitter, then he certainly raised the red roof by daring to defend himself. That the accuser came about a day after he said he was going to vote Republican this time around — that, after a lifetime of voting Democratic — is more than mildly interesting. Nobody knows that better than Musk himself.

“Political attacks on me will escalate dramatically in coming months,” hewrote on Twitter.

Of course they will. That’s how the left operates. Dare to cross the Democrats, dare to deviate from the leftist narrative, dare to fight against the far-leftist influences that have swept socialism and worse, cultural communism, into the party’s base, bringing with it the likes of limited speech, LGBTQ crazy and spread-the-wealth economics — dare to buck this collectivist, globalist tide and beware the consequences. Beware the wrath of the left.

Hell hath no fury like a Democrat scorned.

And Musk has certainly made a case of scorning Democratic playbooks.

“The attacks against me should be viewed through a political lens — this is their standard (despicable) playbook — but nothing will deter me from fighting for a good future and your right to free speech,” hetweeted.

“And, for the record, those wild accusations are utterly untrue,” hetweeted.

“But I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me ‘exposed’ — describe just one thing, anything at all (scars tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened,” hetweeted.

With that, with this, with these accusations, Musk has now joined the camp called Democrat Castaways. Among the members are former New York Times journalist Alex Berenson, who questioned the leftist lines of logic, that is to say, illogic, on the coronavirus; “Harry Potter” series author J.K. Rowling for refusing to bow to radical and ridiculous transgender activism; and reformed liberal Brandon Straka, who made national waves by founding the #WalkAway movement.

It’s a small but growing club. Democrats always attack defectors.

Musk, at least, is wealthy enough to win — unless, of course, he decides one day to run for political office. As a — gasp! — Republican. In which case a pee tape and a story about a prostitute could soon emerge.

That’s how they went after another reformed registered Democrat, after all. His name was Donald Trump.
