The SpaceX and Tesla founder told Kara Swisher during a recent podcast interview that because neither he nor his children are at risk for contracting the Wuhan coronavirus (covid-19), there is simply no need to get vaccinated, despite what the "experts" say.
"This is a no-win situation," Musk stated. "It has diminished my faith in humanity, this whole thing ... the irrationality of people in general."
Musk is outraged that people allowed their governments to shut them up inside their homes under the guise of protective lockdowns, suggesting that it is "unethical" for any politician to force a person into "de facto house arrest."
The only people who should have stayed at home, Musk says, are those at the highest risk of illness or death. These folks, he indicated, should have waited it out "until the storm passes." Everyone else, though, never should have been restricted at all.
When asked about the potential risk to employees who work in his car factories, along with their families, Musk simply stated that "everybody dies."
"We've been making cars this entire time and it's been great," he added, noting that the Tesla factory kept its factory doors open in defiance of Gov. Gavin Newsom's closure orders. SpaceX has likewise been fully operational throughout the so-called "pandemic."
"Through this entire thing, we didn't skip a day," Musk says. "We had national security clearance because we were doing national security work. We sent astronauts to the space station and back."
As for Bill Gates, who has aggressively pushed lockdowns, mask-wearing, and prolonged business closures until one of his vaccines becomes available, Musk had nothing good to say about the Microsoft co-founder-turned-philanthropist.
"Gates said something about me not knowing what I was doing. It's like, hey knucklehead, we actually make the vaccine machines for CureVac, that company you're invested in," Musk stated, referring to the fact that Tesla currently manufactures machines for CureVac.
Musk further explained that he has been working closely with an epidemiology team from Harvard University that is developing Wuhan coronavirus (covid-19) antibody studies.
There really have been a few things that Musk has gotten right over the years, despite being a knucklehead himself. One was his warning from back in 2014 that artificial intelligence, or AI, is a threat to humanity that could eventually lead to our extinction.
Musk also deleted his personal Facebook account in 2018, encouraging his followers to do the same after it was revealed that the Mark Zuckerberg empire was illicitly harvesting user data with the help of a consulting firm known as Cambridge Analytica.
His cars might be a pile of junk, but Musk occasionally has good things to say that inspire people to question illegitimate authority and take matters into their own hands when the situation requires it. And for this we will give him credit when credit is due.
"I'm glad Musk is speaking out against the madness that is going on," wrote one RT commenter. "We need more of the elite expressing their displeasure."
"Barricading the whole population when only a small percentage of people is at risk indicates incompetence and/or a nefarious agenda about population control (before an election)," wrote another.
