Elon Musk Outed as Normal Businessman Hedging His Bets Dem Candidates Hardest Hit

Sher­iff Jason McCul­lough: You might as well come on, like it or not, we’re on the same side now

Sup­port Your Local Sher­iff 1969

Back when I was in col­lege and we had pretty much one Judeo Chris­t­ian Cul­ture and the whacko lib­er­al­ism that we see office hold­ers dis­play proudly was a fringe so small that only in the cra­zi­est col­leges were they ever men­tioned there was one pretty basic fact of life for a large national busi­ness­man, stay friendly with both polit­i­cal parties.

Yeah you might hold a fundraiser for your favorite or make an appear­ance but almost invari­ably a busi­ness would make sure to hedge their bets and make sure they had friends on both sides of the aisle. Fur­ther­more if it became clear that one side was going to win, busi­ness’ make it a point to make sure they were on good speak­ing turns.

This was one of the rea­sons why the Clin­ton Foun­da­tion was doing so well in rack­ing in the dough before the elec­tion, every­one believed she was going to be the win­ner and the money poured in. and it’s also why the money dried up the moment it was clear she was finished.

So when I read that Elton Musk was kick­ing in big to the GOP even though he had been giv­ing money to Demo­c­ra­tic Midterm Vic­tory Fund and to folks like Dianne Fein­stein at Adam Schiff I didn’t con­sider it a big deal. I sim­ply pre­sumed that while he remains a fan of the left, he sees the writ­ing on the wall for the midterms and decided to make sure he had some insur­ance to keep the sub­si­dies that make all those elec­tric cars possible.

Appar­ently the base of the Democ­rats doesn’t see it the same way.

and the twit­ter mobs are full of hastags denounc­ing Tesla , Musk and call­ing for boy­cotts

Mr. Musk as taken to twit­ter to deny that he is a “top donor” (as opposed to a non top donor apparently)

but Alas for Mr. Musk because pol­i­tics is a reli­gion for the left. It doesn’t mat­ter if he is a “top donor” or just a reg­u­lar donor. Being a donor to the GOP or any unap­proved cause is as the inven­tor of fire­fox dis­cov­ered like being a lit­tle bit pregnant

It’s doesn’t mat­ter if you fix the pipes of every­one in Flint, as far as they are con­cerned you’re now an apos­tate and the only reli­gion harder on reli­gious apos­tates than lib­er­als are Islamists.

Now it’s likely Mr. Musk is going to be all right because while a lot of the base will be out­raged the pols will still want his $ over the long haul and will be loath to throw that piggy bank away. How­ever give the state of the left today it’s inevitable that same base which forced Chuck Schumer into a los­ing fil­i­buster and shut­down demands that Democ­rats can­di­dates renounce Musk and his money or even demand those who have taken his now tainted case give it back.

If I was a Demo­c­rat oper­a­tive even as I decried Mr. Musk to appease the base that I can’t win with­out, I’d be qui­etly reach­ing out to him, mak­ing it clear that they value his past sup­port, his busi­ness model and his var­i­ous project and any such state­ments to the con­trary are strictly for show and should not be taken as their actual posi­tion (and if I was a repub­li­can oper­a­tive I’d do all I can to expose democ­rats who are doing this).

I think it would be an excel­lent thing for con­ser­v­a­tive blog­gers around the coun­try to start ask­ing Demo­c­rat can­di­dates if they will vow to renounce Mr. Muck’s money based on the bases anger and ask folks like Corey Booker if they will give the money back. The sound bites such ques­tions pro­duce will be a lot of fun for use in the cur­rent elec­tion cycle and could cement Mr. Musk as a donor to con­ser­v­a­tives for decades to come because like Jake in sup­port your local Sher­iff, like it or not you’re on our side now.

Sheriff Jason McCullough: You might as well come on, like it or not, we’re on the same side now

Back when I was in college and we had pretty much one Judeo Christian Culture and the whacko liberalism that we see office holders display proudly was a fringe so small that only in the craziest colleges were they ever mentioned there was one pretty basic fact of life for a large national businessman, stay friendly with both political parties.

Yeah you might hold a fundraiser for your favorite or make an appearance but almost invariably a business would make sure to hedge their bets and make sure they had friends on both sides of the aisle.  Furthermore if it became clear that one side was going to win, business’ make it a point to make sure they were on good speaking turns.

This was one of the reasons why the Clinton Foundation was doing so well in racking in the dough before the election, everyone believed she was going to be the winner and the money poured in.  and it’s also why the money dried up the moment it was clear she was finished.

So when I read that Elton Musk was kicking in big to the GOP even though he had been giving money to Democratic Midterm Victory Fund  and to folks like Dianne Feinstein at Adam Schiff I didn’t consider it a big deal.  I simply presumed that while he remains a fan of the left, he sees the writing on the wall for the midterms and decided to make sure he had some insurance to keep the subsidies that make all those electric cars possible.

Apparently the base of the Democrats doesn’t see it the same way. 

and the twitter mobs are full of hastags denouncing Tesla , Musk and calling for boycotts

Mr. Musk as taken to twitter to deny that he is a “top donor” (as opposed to a non top donor apparently)

but Alas for Mr. Musk  because politics is a religion for the left. It doesn’t matter if he is a “top donor” or just a regular donor. Being a donor to the GOP or any unapproved cause is as the inventor of firefox discovered like being a little bit pregnant

It’s doesn’t matter if you fix the pipes of everyone in Flint, as far as they are concerned you’re now an apostate and the only religion harder on religious apostates than liberals are Islamists.

Now it’s likely Mr. Musk is going to be all right because while a lot of the base will be outraged the pols will still want his $ over the long haul and will be loath to throw that piggy bank away.  However give the state of the left today it’s inevitable  that same base which forced Chuck Schumer into a losing filibuster and shutdown demands that Democrats candidates renounce Musk and his money or even demand those who have taken his now tainted case give it back.

If I was a Democrat operative even as I decried Mr. Musk to appease the base that I can’t win without, I’d be quietly reaching out to him, making it clear that they value his past support, his business model and his various project and any such statements to the contrary are strictly for show and should not be taken as their actual position (and if I was a republican operative I’d do all I can to expose democrats who are doing this).

I think it would be an excellent thing for conservative bloggers around the country to start asking Democrat candidates if they will vow to renounce Mr. Muck’s money based on the bases anger and ask folks like Corey Booker if they will give the money back. The sound bites such questions produce will be a lot of fun for use in the current election cycle and could cement Mr. Musk as a donor to conservatives for decades to come because like Jake in support your local Sheriff, like it or not you’re on our side now.
