Silicon Valley, Under Elon Musk’s Leadership, Shifts Left and Towards the Right

Elon Musk has openly shifted to the right politically since his turbulent takeover of Twitter, confounding the conventional wisdom that Silicon Valley is a bastion of affluent liberals loyal to Democrats.
Once thought to be ideologically non-identifiable, Musk’s politics have now shifted to the hard right as he utilises his platform, which he now calls X, to promote ideas that are valued by far-right movements, Fox News, and conservative talk radio around the West.

Reiterating a conspiracy theory popular in far-right chat boards, Musk recently stated that US President Joe Biden was importing immigrants in order to win votes and create the conditions for “something far worse than 9/11.” This is only the most recent incident.
