Elon has been on a tear on Twitter recently, posting tweet after tweet that “triggers” the usual suspects and sends them off on angry rants or posting delusionally. But among all those great tweets one might have been the best: he posted “Follow 🐰” and the left went insane.
Particularly, they took that not as the movie reference that it was, but as Elon telling his followers to…join a domestic terror movement. Because everyone knows rabbits love fertilizer bombs.
One coping, seething, and delusional leftist, for example, posted:
Elon Musk is now explicitly encouraging his 120 million followers to start following QAnon.
Put differently, Elon Musk is encouraging his 120 million followers to join a domestic terrorism movement.
Adding more detail to the delusion, the leftist then commented “This 👇 is how that 👆 works.” and included a link to Twitter thread in which she said “Yeah so QAnon fans have definitely noticed Elon Musk’s “follow the white rabbit” tweet and have already started connecting it to adrenochrome, Podesta, Hillary Clinton, child trafficking, Saudi Arabia, & more. ‘The storm is ramping up…’”
This 👇 is how that 👆 works. https://t.co/uSWPhiwrzh

The delusional claim that Elon posted a rabbit emoji to get people to turn to terrorism was widely mocked, with the Hodge Twins Twitter account posting “.@elonmusk: tweets an emoji of a rabbit. Crazed leftist: “Elon is encouraging 120 million people to join a domestic terrorist group” 🤣🤣🤣”
Elon saw that and commented “Lmaooo” and then explained the backstory of the tweet by including a link to “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”.

The Hodge Twins account then kept the joke going, saying “Nah u really trying to get people to join your 🐰 domestic terror group, nice try 🤣”.
Joking about the idea, another account posted a picture of President Joe Biden with the Easter bunny, saying “@POTUS follows the 🐰”

The rabbit tweet wasn’t the only one of Elon’s that set off the left lately. He also managed to make AOC berserk by kicking leftie journalists involved in doxxing him off of Twitter, and, explaining the decision, said “They posted my exact real-time location, basically assassination coordinates, in (obvious) direct violation of Twitter terms of service“. AOC lost it in response, saying:
You’re a public figure. An extremely controversial and powerful one.
I get feeling unsafe, but descending into abuse of power + erratically banning journalists only increases the intensity around you.
Take a beat and lay off the proto-fascism. Maybe try putting down your phone.
As someone who has been subject to real + dangerous plots, I do get it. I didn’t have security and have experienced many scary incidents.
In fact, many of the right-wing outlets you now elevate published photos of my home, car, etc.
At a certain point you gotta disconnect.
Elon had previously announced that journalists would be given the boot if they were involved in doxxing people by providing their real-time location, saying:
Same doxxing rules apply to “journalists” as to everyone else
They posted my exact real-time location, basically assassination coordinates, in (obvious) direct violation of Twitter terms of service
