Billionaire Elon Musk, who recently acquired Twitter, has issued a grave warning about the threat posed by woke ideologies to human civilization.

In a Nov. 25 tweet tagged “need advice,” Musk asked Twitter users about what they think about the culture war. When a user replied that the conservative side needs to start funding more artists, filmmakers, and writers instead of politicians and PACs since “you can’t win a culture war without any culture,” Musk responded that he is neither “conventionally right nor left,” although he agrees with the point.

“The woke mind virus has thoroughly penetrated entertainment and is pushing civilization towards suicide. There needs to be a counter-narrative,” he said.

Musk also agreed with a meme that suggests teachers are trying to push woke propaganda into childrens’ brains through education.

After acquiring Twitter, Musk said that the reason he bought the social media platform was to create a “common digital town square” where people can debate on a wide range of topics in a healthy manner.

“There is currently great danger that social media will splinter into far right-wing and far left-wing echo chambers that generate more hate and divide our society,” he warned.

In a recent interview with The Epoch Times, political commentator Amber Athey pointed out that Democrat-run legacy mainstream media outlets are increasingly becoming beholden to younger radical progressives.

Woke millennials want left-wing groups to agree with their version of political correctness and truth, failing which they will label such groups as sexist, racist, and transphobic, she said.

“They thought the woke millennials were on their side … [and] quickly learned that ‘wokeism’ does not accept anything but 100 percent fealty.”

Failing Woke Agenda in Entertainment?

Hollywood has been at the forefront of promoting progressive culture. However, its recent summer box office performance might be an indication that the American public wants less of the woke content.
