Tesla CEO Elon Musk keeps finding new ways to make all the right enemies on the Left.
It all started when Musk announced his intention to purchase Twitter.
But now Elon Musk dropped the hammer on the woke mob and you won’t believe what just happened.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are now three words that dominate corporate America.
Leftists use diversity, equity, and inclusion programs to inject woke politics into the workplace and force corporations to take a stand in favor of left-wing political causes.
But it looks like Elon Musk is one CEO who’s had enough of woke politics in the workplace.
As part of a plan to trim 10 percent of the workforce, key diversity, equity, and inclusion officers at Tesla found themselves out of a job.
According to sources familiar with the matter, Bobby Berretta-Paris, a five-year Tesla veteran, was let go last week. He was hired as a recruiter and promoted three times during his tenure. He was also the volunteer president of LGBTQ+ at Tesla.
Sources also told Electrek about a software engineer that was also let go by Tesla last week. They had been working at Tesla for four years – most recently as senior software engineer in charge of naming conventions in Tesla’s vehicle UI team – and had been promoted three times. The software engineer volunteered as a diversity and inclusion leader and was involved in employee protection when it came to issues of diversity and inclusion. (Update: we removed their name.)
This does not appear to be a coincidence.
Last month, Musk compared woke ideology to a mind virus.
Unless it is stopped, the woke mind virus will destroy civilization and humanity will never reached Mars

The woke mind virus – as Musk calls it – is what pushed him to buy Twitter in the first place.
Twitter suspended the popular Christian satire site, the Babylon Bee, over a joke awarding a biological male in the Biden administration who claimed to be a woman with their “man of the year” prize.
But Musk didn’t just pop off about his opposition to wokeism on social media and be done with it.
He put his money where his mouth is.
Musk entered into a $44 billion agreement to buy Twitter and is now cleaning the woke chiefs out of his company.
