Elon Musk Reponds to Bezos-Owned Washington Post Hitpiece: “Give My Regards to Your Puppet Master”
Tesla CEO Elon Musk didn’t pull punches in a response to a Washington Post hitpiece attacking the technology entrepreneur for insufficient obedience to the Left, telling its author to “give my regards to your puppet master.”
Musk was referring to Amazon oligarch Jeff Bezos, who owns the Washington Post as a personal propaganda outlet. Bezos is also seeking to become the owner of CNN, a move which would give the megabillionaire unprecedented control of the US media. As Washington Post owner, Bezos has stifled criticism of large corporations such as Amazon, and promoted infamous conspiracy hoaxes such as the “Russian interference” plot.
The oligarch’s operative, Washington Post writer Faiz Sissiqui, even went so far as to broadcast his own ‘L’ online.
When I sent him a request for comment ahead of this piece, Elon Musk sent me this reply: “Give my regards to your puppet master.

Musk is one of the few billionaires in the United States not wholly in lockstep with the corporate Left, having previously criticized Silicon Valley and California for severe complacency and hostility to new innovation.
Musk, who recently moved to Texas, has become somewhat of a target of the US oligarchy, despite having created a company dedicated to furthering environmental sustainability through development of electric vehicles. Tesla’s stock rose at astronomical rates last year. The stock has declined in value slightly in 2021, with mainstream media figures pointing to the company as a fraud on the mere incidence of a comparatively minor correction alone.
