The reporter David Faber said to Musk “Let’s talk a bit about your tweets. It comes up a lot, even today, it came up. You know, in anticipation of this meeting. You do some tweets that seem to be, or at least give support to, what some call conspiracy theories.”
Musk didn’t hold back in his response.
“Well, yes, but I mean, honestly, you know, some of these conspiracy theories have turned out to be true,” he replied.
“Which ones?” Faber asked.
“Well, like the Hunter Biden laptop,” Musk shot back, adding “that was a pretty big deal. There was Twitter, and others engaged in an act of suppression of information that was relevant to the public. That’s a terrible thing that happened. That’s election interference.”
Search engines are your friend Mr Faber. Maybe do some investigative journalism rather than just reading scripts given to you by Pharmaceutical sponsored executives?

Faber also brought up the charges against Musk of being anti-Semitic after he compared George Soros to a super villain and charged that the billionaire leftist “hates humanity.”
“I think that’s true. That’s my opinion” Musk responded, going on to state “I’m like, I’m like a pro-semite. If anything.”
Faber seemed perplexed that Musk would tweet such things “when people who buy Teslas may not agree with you, advertisers on Twitter may not agree with you.”
Musk shot back “I mean, there’s freedom of speech. I’m allowed to say what I want to,” before quoting a scene in the movie The Princess Bride “Where he confronts the person who killed his father. And he says, ‘Offer me money. Offer me power. I don’t care.’”

George Soros has been so uniquely destructive to law & order in American cities that there’s a name for the carnage he’s wrought: “Soros DAs.” His organization described its strategy to Politico in a 2016 article: it would change the law, not by going through legislatures, but…

Continuing the conversation, Faber said “So, you just don’t care. You want to share what you have to say?”
“I’ll say what I want to say and if the consequence of that is losing money, so be it,” Musk replied.
Consulting his script, Faber then stated “Okay. But I mean, when you when you link to somebody who’s talking about the guy who killed children in a mall in Allen, Texas, you say something like it might be a bad Psyop. I’m not quite sure what you meant…”
Musk fired back, “In that particular case, there was a somehow that’s, not that most of the people were killed, but it was, I think incorrectly described to be a white supremacist action. And the evidence for that was some obscure Russian website that no one’s ever heard of that had no followers and the company that, that found this is Bellingcat.”
“Have you heard what Bellingcat does? Psyops,” Musk schooled the ‘journalist’.
“Right. I couldn’t really even follow exactly what it was you were trying to express there. So that’s in part why I was curious,” Faber claimed, admitting that he has no clue about the topic.
“I’m saying that I thought ascribing it to white supremacy was bullshit,” Musk emphasised, adding “and that the information for that came from an obscure Russian website and was somehow magically found by Bellingcat, which is a company that does Psyops.”
When Faber wondered why Musk would want to “get into” such issues, the Twitter owner responded “because we should not be ascribing things to white supremacy if they’re, if it’s false.”

Very little is accurately known about the Allen case at this point, apart from it seems that the perpetrator was mentally ill and his beliefs on race appear to have been all over the map.
Bellingcat is a NATO state psy-op, as their own state partners admit. A leaked report for the UK gov't states: "Bellingcat was somewhat discredited, both by spreading disinformation itself, and by being willing to produce reports for anyone willing to pay." https://t.co/wV9JTRRdkR pic.twitter.com/4BnS3e1KKg

Elsewhere in the interview Musk was asked if he regrets voting for Joe Biden, to which he expressed a desire to see “a normal human being as President.”
“It’s not simply a matter of do they share your beliefs,” Musk said, adding “But are they good at getting things done.”
“There’s a lot of decisions that need to be made every day. Many that aren’t related to beliefs. And you just want a good executive,” Musk said.
