Elon Musk Attacked by Radical Leftists Online for Donating to Republican PAC
SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk is facing criticism over his environmental stance after donating $38,900 to a Republican PAC, which is lobbying for the GOP to retain control of Congress ahead of the midterm election.
Federal Election Commission filings, which were released on Saturday, showed Musk to be among the top 50 donors to Protect The House, a group that supports the anti-environmental stance of the GOP. However, the CEO has denied any political affiliation with the group, claiming not to be a “conservative” but rather a registered independent with “politically moderate” beliefs, caring more about humanitarian issues and the environment.
“Reports that I am a top donor to GOP are categorically false. I am not a top donor to any political party,” Musk tweeted on Thursday.
When asked by social media users if he makes any sort of donations to any political group, Musk replied: “Yes, about 0.5% of what I donated to @SierraClub, which is a reasonable amount to maintain an open dialogue.”
The day before, the CEO tweeted his thanks to the Sierra Club environmental organization for fighting climate change. “This affects every living creature on Earth,” he said.
