Those on the far Left hate everyone, said Tesla and SpaceX CEO and new Twitter owner Elon Musk on Friday. The 50-year-old, who is broadly famous as the world's wealthiest man, took to the social media platform to share the view shortly after his $44 billion purchase of the company. "The far left hates everyone, themselves included!" he tweeted. [tweet_embed] May 1, 2022[/tweet_embed] Minutes later, the billionaire added context to the statement. "But I'm no fan of the far right either," he added. "Let's have less hate and more love." However, the Friday morning tweets were not Musk's first step into political commentary. He was criticized on Thursday for sharing a graphic indicating a massive shift in left-wing positions since 2008. [tweet_embed] May 1, 2022[/tweet_embed] He then appeared to explain the graphic in a follow-up tweet. "I strongly supported Obama for President, but today’s Democratic Party has been hijacked by extremists," he posted. Twitter decided to sell the company for $44 billion to Musk earlier this week. "Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated," Musk said. "I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential – I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it." [tweet_embed] May 1, 2022[/tweet_embed] New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took a jab on Musk, as she wrote: "Tired of having to collectively stress about what explosion of hate crimes is happening bc some billionaire with an ego problem unilaterally controls a massive communication platform and skews it because Tucker Carlson or Peter Thiel took him to dinner and made him feel special," Ocasio-Cortez said in a tweet. In response, Musk told the New Yorker to "stop hitting on me, I'm really shy." He also included a blushing and smiling emoji. This follows the "Squad" member's response to criticism over a photo, acquired by National Review in late December, showing Ocasio-Cortez in Florida enjoying a cocktail without a mask while on vacation with her boyfriend in Miami Beach. “If Republicans are mad they can’t date me they can just say that instead of projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend’s feet. Ya creepy weirdos," she said in a tweet. [tweet_embed] May 1, 2022[/tweet_embed] In a since-deleted tweet, Ocasio-Cortez responded to Musk and said the billionaire she was referring to was Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Some users posted a screenshot of the exchange before it was removed. Musk, who claimed he has slowly shifted more conservative in response to liberals going too far left, jokingly tweeted this week that his next acquisition will be Coca-Cola so he can put the cocaine back into the soda.
