Elon Musk Rips Pentagon for ‘Woke’ Tweet


Tesla and Twitter CEO Elon Musk ripped the Department of Defense on Sunday after it tweeted that “diversity is a strategic imperative.”

The DOD tweeted on Saturday, “Diversity is a strategic imperative critical to mission readiness and accomplishment. We were on site for the 2023 inaugural [Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion] Summit as DEIA experts led forums to advance the DEIA and DoD mission — because our people matter.”

Musk responded, “Your strategic imperative is defending the United States.”

The summit, according to an earlier tweet, took place February 15-17, and featured “distinguished presenters, renowned experts in government, higher education, business, science, and technology.”

It is not the first time Musk has rankled the Pentagon, but it is the first time he has taken aim at the Biden Pentagon’s wokeness.
