It is well known that since finalizing his acquisition of Twitter a month and a half ago, billionaire Elon Musk has done almost everything in his power to inflame the political left, from unfreezing conservative accounts to disclosing the Twitter Files that show how previous management tipped the scales against the right.
On Sunday morning, a brief tweet of five words may have ultimately drove them all irrevocably bonkers.
“My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci,” Sunday at 5:58 a.m. Eastern Time, Musk posted.
My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 11, 2022
Two socialist dogmas demolished by Musk, a self-described political centrist who upholds the right to free expression. the pronouns first. Leftists adore pronouns, especially those that are invented out of thin air or that refer to something other than a person’s real biological sex. So when someone makes light of their new religion, they get quite upset, as actress Gina Carano discovered the hard way.
The other leftist truism is, Dr. Anthony Fauci. He is known as America’s Doctor. Leftists still revere Fauci because he is one of them and they naturally support his totalitarian approach to combating the pandemic, even though anyone with half a brain is at least questioning his approach to lockdowns, school closures, alternative Covid treatments, masks, and vaccine mandates as policies that resulted in massive suffering and death.
For the record: Dr. Fauci has done nothing wrong, except serve our nation. In the meantime, Mr. Musk should know that 200,000 Americans needlessly lost their lives from Covid due to this kind of antiscience rhetoric and disinformation. Elon, I’m asking you to take down this Tweet https://t.co/t3ffWQsXnb— Prof Peter Hotez MD PhD (@PeterHotez) December 11, 2022
Dr. Fauci is a national hero who will be remembered for generations to come for his innate goodness & many contributions to public health— John O. Brennan (@JohnBrennan) December 11, 2022
Despite your business success, you will be remembered most for fueling public hate & divisions.

So, Twitter advertisers, this is what you are directly supporting. Reckless, dangerous, anti-science sewage that will cause and compound suffering at a moment of surging disease and at the expense of a very good man. https://t.co/VCdmS30AcV— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) December 11, 2022
