Enough Musk Spam

For those that have had enough of the Elon Musk worship online.

No flaming, baiting, etc. This community is intended for those opposed to the influx of Elon Musk-related advertising online. Coming here to defend Musk or his companies will not get you banned, but it likely will result in downvotes. Please use the reporting feature if you see a rule violation.

Opinions from all sides of the political spectrum are welcome here. However, we kindly ask that off-topic political discussion be kept to a minimum, so as to focus on the goal of this sub. This community is minimally moderated, so discussion and the power of upvotes/downvotes are allowed, provided lemmy.world rules are not broken.

Post links to instances of obvious Elon Musk fanboy brigading in default subreddits, lemmy/kbin communities/instances, astroturfing from Tesla/SpaceX/etc., or any articles critical of Musk, his ideas, unrealistic promises and timelines, or the working conditions at his companies.

Tesla-specific discussion can be posted here as well as our sister community /c/RealTesla.

I thought that was just being in Texas? You’re fucking the planet AND society at the same time!? Hell, that’s just Tuesday down there.

He’s just taking advantage of laws passed by the state legislature. Texas cities used to have some influence over their unincorporated surrounding areas, but someone in the lege got pissed off about it.

Of course, Tesla could still be a good neighbor, but everyone please think about the shareholders! 🙄

There are environmental regulations in Texas‽

Well, I mean, you can’t…. take someone’s gun while they’re dumping oil on the ground.

Taking advantage of weak environmental laws - what a good look for an EV company.

A large business avoided environmental regulations in a Republican state.

In other news, water makes things wet.

They would love to do this everywhere. In Germany, this didn't really work. They were facing a shutdown of their factories access to the sewer system. Lets see if they can clean up their shit.

I mean pretty par for course for all of these Republican run states that always goes on about "Local government knows best for its citizens" and then immediately goes "No, not that way!" when they aren't adhering to their narrow conservative viewpoints.
