  • Tech billionaire Mark Cuban just criticized the ‘National Anthem Police’ on Twitter.
  • Ted Cruz entered the fray, and Mark Cuban roasted him into submission.
  • Cuban is using his influence to create social change; Elon Musk is still just trying to ‘look cool.’ So why does the Tesla CEO get all of the unfounded glory?

Mark Cuban is exposing the fraudulent side of Elon Musk.

While Cuban is in the field, butting heads with corrosive politicians, Musk is hyping a ridiculous Kayne West presidential bid.

Where Cuban is fighting for the rights of everyday people, Musk is fighting for himself. And he’s endangering lives in the process.

And yet Elon Musk is praised as the tech God billionaire.

It’s time to get our priorities straight. It’s time Elon Musk does the same.

Mark Cuban Slams Ted Cruz and National Anthem Police Into Submission

On Sunday night, Mark Cuban butted heads with former NFL player Herschel Walker  on Fox News.

Walker, a Trump supporter, tried to say all American lives matter. Cuban, supporting Black Lives Matter, would not back down:

Herschel, they’re not mutually exclusive. Every life matters but when someone is in trouble you address them first. The Black community has had issues and I think, you know, systemic racism has been here for generations and it’s not going away unless we do something about it.

Later that night, the debate turned to Twitter.

Mark Davis, a Dallas radio show host lamented National Anthem protests. Cuban wasn’t having it:

Then Ted Cruz waddled into the conversation. Mark Cuban sent him waddling back home.

Yes, Mark Cuban just told Ted Cruz to grow some balls. Cruz tried to muster some when he accused Cuban of never criticizing China.

Cuban, again, put the Texas senator in his place.

He tweeted a clip of him talking about shutting down all IPOs from China.  Then he said this:

Mark Cuban is showing up. He’s wading into dangerous waters and putting his neck on the line to defend those who could use his help.

Elon Musk? Well, he’s risking those same people’s lives to increase his bottom line.

Elon Musk Wants to Look Like a Hero

While Cuban is out in the trenches, Elon Musk is somewhere in an LA mansion, plotting his next “shocking” tweet. Or is he still ‘couch-surfing’?

Remember when Musk made that bold proclamation, that he was going to sell all of his houses (on the heels of a looming housing market crash)? That’s emblematic of his activism.

He’ll claim he’s doing something that seems heroic, but in the end, will only benefit himself.

Elon Musk did it with his son’s name.

He did it when he backed Kanye West’s presidential bid.

And he did it when he pushed for America to reopen.

Who is that actually helping?

While Mark Cuban defends blue-collar workers, Musk forced his factory employees back to work during the height of the pandemic.

Why? So he could get his massive payday.

Luckily, we have people like Mark Cuban to call him out:

Anything that negatively impacts Tesla, Elon hates, period, end of story. I don’t think he has other people’s interests at heart. I mean, I don’t really know him at all, but that’s just my take.

It’s time to recognize whose side these people are really on. And we can only judge by their actions.

Elon Musk is showing us that he doesn’t care about the average American. Maybe it’s time we stopped caring so much about him.
