Elon Musk: Resistance is Futile
As the Tesla founder preaches capitulation in the face of Russia, Putin reinforces ties with Hamas in the new Axis of Evil.
Russia’s response on Israel has shown us exactly where it positioned itself in World War III, yet Elon Musk has kept up the same levels of ignorance (intentionally or not) positioning him as the enemy’s perfect propagandistic weapon. Credit should be given to Putin for this judo move using their opponent’s power against themselves, which in this case is the animosity many Westerners have towards their governments from their handling of Covid to dealing with the migrant crisis.
As such, Musk echoes the existing sentiment of rejecting whatever the legacy media aligns itself with, but have recent events contributed to a shift in alliances that will finally show Russia as it really is to such deluded contrarians?
Peace in Our Crimes
According to Musk, we need to sacrifice part of Ukraine's territory in order to avoid a Third World War. From his recent X Space, Musk declared that “We need to figure out peace in Ukraine, and I think we need to restore normal relations with Russia," and that US policy forces Russia to enter into an alliance with Iran and China.
The “forcing”, however, had come about through Russia running out of shells amidst a lack of drones, engineers, and a technical base. So they’ve been purchasing all this from Iran and North Korea with China's permission, being “forced” to do so through Ukraine’s annoying resistance to being conquered. Of course, if the US and the West in general stood back so as to let Putin take Ukraine and whatever else he wants, maybe Russia wouldn’t have been forced to join this axis of evil.
Such dreams of “normal relations with Russia” are backed up by calls for capitulation from Musk’s friend and fellow tech entrepreneur David Sacks against what they see as a militarily superior world power. Nevermind that Musk has strong links to China, or that he’s spoken extensively with Vladimir Putin in private.
How can we ever doubt this pure red blooded American patriot who only dreams of world peace? Through conceding to the demands of the China/Russia/Iran alliance, such peace is surely assured after all.
It shouldn’t matter that a million people will remain under Russian occupation since if we listen to Elon Musk, these occupied regions really want to be a part of Russia. Nor is there any partisan movement within these border towns, since Musk knows better than the partisans themselves as to whether they exist or not. And when it comes to where such extensive knowledge of geopolitics comes from, it would be quite offensive to assume Musk just copies Kremlin talking points rather than rightfully attributing such insight to his innate sense of genius in engineering.
If Elon Musk lived in the year 1945, he would have said: "No, not only should Germany not be invaded, but we have to stop the war now at the borders of what Germany has captured in order to feel safe. Let it be Germany, don’t you fools understand? Because there's no resistance movement in Auschwitz where people go into the gas chambers voluntarily."
Sometimes it happens that a great engineer and an even better salesman turns out to be completely incompetent as a human being, as someone who should understand what life is and what death is, as well as what freedom (and the lack of it) is.
But even if we were to take any of the moral considerations out in favor of a more “realpolitik” view of the current situation, it would not be for long. Musk’s assumption that, to quote the Stark Trek Borg, “Resistance is Futile” makes sense when seen through the perspective of someone claiming to be moral yet having no problem working close with China while closing his eyes to the atrocities committed by its puppet state of Russia.
Such a person is a mirror image of the “globalists” who would sell their country out for a nickel that Musk claims to oppose. Business is business after all, and an Elon Musk living in a world where China-backed Russia crosses into Europe loses nothing in comparison to the husbands of women and parents of children raped in the Zaporizhzhia Oblast, or the parents of children shot in Kyiv.
Russia’s Allegiance on Display
Meeting with Hamas once again on top of many other telling signs has made it very obvious to those whose neurons are still firing, where exactly Russia stands in this new front of our multi-layered global war.
Last Sunday in Russia’s mostly Muslim Dagestan, a mob of locals scoured the Makhachkala airport in search of Jewish passengers arriving from Israel, with the ensuing chaos resulting in 20 people injured. While pro-Palestinian sentiment has indeed echoed through the Muslim world, its pretty telling that Putin’s government was quick to blame “traitors” in Ukraine for such an act.
"The truth is that the stronger Russia is, the more united our society is, the more effectively we will be able to defend both our own national interests and the interest of those peoples who have become victims of Western neo-colonial policies”
But “He who smelt, it dealt it” as the timeless saying goes, and in this case, Russia has had much to gain from orchestrating such an act.
In general, Dagestan (known for its clever marriage life hacks) has never been a hotbed of antisemitism compared to other Muslim parts of the world, so to have the Dagestani people sitting by the fire one day and wondering why they haven’t caught planes from Tel Aviv yet seems like a stretch.
While at first it seems strange for Russia to engage in an anti-Semtic false flag which makes Putin’s government look less in control, this lack of control is exactly what they want to inspire in the minds of outsiders. If Russia is seen as the only thing standing in the way of more incidents like this occurring, then its presence on the world stage can be framed as “the devil we know''.
Even before this airport incident, there have already been concerns about what would happen should Russia’s government be taken out. But how much worse must Russia act in order to do away with such fears?
In regards to Israel, Russia has not condemned Hamas, and instead called for an end to escalation on both sides while meeting with senior Hamas officials as previously stated. On top of this, the parties also discussed ways to stop “Israel’s crimes supported by the West.” and after the massacre of October 7th, Hamas officials praised Putin for his “position regarding the ongoing Zionist aggression”.
There comes a point where you don’t need to pretend to be an impartial observer and start making decisive moves in flaunting your alliance, knowing that people like Musk will still protect you in the eyes of a gullible public. Such is the case with Russia which has increasingly been showing its allegiance to the Muslim world in place of the Western sphere of influence.
Would public pressure from Musk and other useful idiots and foreign agents be enough to keep the US from intervening too much in this early stage of World War III? Perhaps we will see a US maintaining relative neutrality just like during World War II while the Nazis advanced further into Europe
This was of course until the US had its Pearl Harbor.
Shift in the Narrative
The flip-side of Russia going “mask off” in regards to its true alliances is that it will be that much harder to separate Russia from the Axis of Hamas supporting Iran as well as China. The latter has also shown very clearly where it lies when its top influencers describe Israel as “lackeys of colonialism”
Just as in the case of Western leftists and fundamentalist Muslims as well as neo Nazis making it really clear to the liberal fence sitters what they think of Jews as a whole, it will now be much harder for Musk and other appeasers to stick with their Russian diplomacy narrative. In the same way, there have been people deceived into assuming an “out of control” Russia is more dangerous than one strong enough to maintain order in regions such as Dagestan.
It’s not a question of “if” but of “when” this alliance of the new anti-Western Axis Powers will make itself obvious to all but those lacking a frontal lobe. In the meantime, any propositions of submitting to this alliance’s demands out of fear of their superiority is not just laughable but potentially treasonous.
Regarding Musk’s and Sacks’ conviction that Ukraine has no chance against such superior powers, President Zelenskyy disagrees for the following reasons:
“For years, Russia's fleet and control over the Black Sea have created the illusion of insurmountable dominance. The relocation of hundreds of thousands of Russians and mass oppression have created an illusion of a subdued Crimea.
Illusions are vanishing now. We make them vanish.
First, Russia’s navy can no longer operate in the western Black Sea and is gradually retreating from Crimea.
Moscow had to announce a new base for its fleet—or rather, its remnants—in the south-east. Away from Ukrainian missiles and sea drones.
But we will get them anywhere.
Second, Russian terrorists no longer have a single safe base or fully protected logistical route in Crimea or the occupied Black and Azov seacoasts. We have not yet established full fire control over all of Crimea and adjacent waters. But we will. This is only a matter of time.
Third, pro-Ukrainian sentiments in Crimea are becoming more outspoken. People there, like those in other occupied areas of Ukraine, understand that Russia will leave. Russia's weakness becomes more audible than the occupied people's fear. We see how many allies we have in Crimea.
Fourth, Ukraine has been able to reestablish the Black Sea as a global food security lifeline. Without Ukrainian agricultural exports, food price crises and social unrest threaten dozens of nations, from Western Africa to Asia.
Fifth, it is about values.
When Russian aggression began in 2014, many were willing to turn a blind eye to the occupation of Crimea, hoping to appease the aggressor. Instead, it has fueled its ambitions and sense of impunity.
We are now gradually dismantling Russia's impunity.”
But just like the leftists, Islamists, and Neo Nazis, we are dealing with an Axis that only understands (and respects) strength. In this regard, Russia has so far looked at the US with little to be afraid of while fearing (and thus respecting) China instead. And in the same way, a man in NY ripping off posters of Israeli children turned into a gentle lamb the moment he was afraid of those men who confronted him about it:
Those who are incapable of understanding morality and mercy understand the use of force very well and any attempts to concede towards their demands will only encourage them to keep going further. And since recent events have made it much clearer where people stand, new alliances can be formed among those who do understand the importance of civilization and the need to protect it from those who only desire to consume and destroy.
