Elon Musk torched the extended, one-size-fits-all coronavirus lockdowns, saying they’re “fascist” and unconstitutional.
Musk lives in California, which is currently in an indefinite lockdown because its Democratic governor, Gavin Newsom, has not set an end date.
A frustrated Musk slammed the extended lockdowns during a conference call for Tesla’s first-quarter earnings.
The billionaire founder of Tesla and SpaceX said: “The extension of the shelter-in-place — or I would call it, forcibly imprisoning people in their homes against all their Constitutional rights — [is] breaking people’s freedoms in ways that are horrible and wrong. [That] is not why people came to America or built this country. What the f**k? Excuse me.”
Elon continued: “This is the time to think about the future and to ask, is it right to infringe upon people’s rights as is happening now? People are very angry about this because…if somebody wants to stay in their house, that’s great. They should be allowed to stay in the house, and they should not be compelled to leave. But to say that they CANNOT leave their house, and they will be arrested if they do — this is fascist! This is not democratic. This is not freedom. Give people back their g**damn freedom.”
Musk was following up on a previous fiery statement exhorting the United States to “FREE AMERICA NOW!”

Elon joins a growing legion of Americans who are outraged by the nationwide, one-size-fits-all lockdowns.
Rather than tailor the shutdowns to a region’s severity of coronavirus deaths, the United States is imposing a blanket lockdown to keep law-abiding Americans under house arrest while letting criminals out of jail.
California — which has a population of 40 million — has so far had 1,887 deaths attributed to the coronavirus. Yet it is as restrictively locked down as New York State, the American coronavirus epicenter. Does that make sense?
And even in New York State (population: 19.5 million), most of the COVID-19 infections/deaths are concentrated in New York City.
And even in New York City, viral deaths and infections are concentrated in the boroughs of Queens, the Bronx, and Brooklyn. Manhattan has fewer COVID-19 infections and deaths than the outer boroughs despite having a greater population density.
As it is, many medical experts say there is no scientific basis for these harsh lockdowns.
After the Tesla earnings call, Elon Musk pointed out that hospitals in California have been half-empty during this nationwide lockdown. This is a similar trend occurring all across the country.

Tens of thousands of doctors and nurses have been furloughed all over the United States because hospitals are going bankrupt. Why? Because the apocalyptic coronavirus deaths projected by the panic-pimping “experts” and fallacious academic models never happened.
Self-anointed Twitter “experts” screech that the death rates are lower than projections BECAUSE OF the shutdowns.
In reality, the flawed model that the U.S. relied on to decimate its economy had already factored in the strictest of lockdowns when it calculated the alarmist, false death projections.
The Mayo Clinic — a nonprofit medical center that does scientific research specifically to combat diseases like COVID-19 — furloughed/slashed pay for 30,000 employees because the barrage of coronavirus cases it had expected never materialized.

Elon Musk also tweeted a news story confirming that hospitals get paid more if they record more COVID-19 infections and deaths.

Physicians around the United States admit that they’re being pressured to inflate coronavirus infection rates and deaths.
Why? Because hospitals get massive amounts of federal dollars for every COVID infection and death they record, so there’s a financial incentive to promote this taxpayer-funded gravy train.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson noted with alarm that the Wuhan coronavirus is turning the United States into authoritarian, communist China.
“People in power abuse their power and that may be the lesson here,” Carlson said. “The arrival of the terrifying new virus from China gave our leaders more power than anyone in the history of this country. Six weeks ago, America was something resembling an imperfect democracy…Now, this is an oligarchy, managed by bureaucrats and tech moguls — none of whom are accountable to voters.”
Tucker noted: “Our leaders are making decisions that will affect your family forever with virtually no oversight or accountability. And of course, they love it. We shouldn’t be surprised if they don’t want to end.”
