Which is it?

It emerged yesterday that the world’s wealthiest man had fathered a set of twins with an executive in his organization, last year.

Given Musk’s propensity for inexplicably bizarre behaviour, the latest offering from the wonderful world of the Twitter owner does not come as a major surprise. You will recall that our protagonist was sued by an airline stewardess for inappropriate behaviour quite recently.

But his pronouncements in the aftermath of the news being disseminated via social media does leave us with more questions than answers, as evinced in the Tweet below:

One seriously wonders if this is the behaviour of the entitled white male, who feels that he can act as he pleases without being called to account.

A behaviour not dissimilar to Boris Johnson and Donald Trump, both of whom are well known serial philandering renegades and not to mention, all round fascists.

Or could it be something much more sinister at play here?

For those of you who have been living under a rock, the great replacement theory has been cited as the motivation behind the mass shootings carried out by white supremacists in recent times.

It certainly was responsible for the buffalo shooting which took place several weeks ago.

According to the world’s greatest repository of knowledge, the summary of the replacement theory goes thus:

The original theory states that, with the complicity or cooperation of “replacist” elites,white European populations are being demographically and culturally replaced with non-white peoples — especially from Muslim-majority countries — through mass migration, demographic growth and a drop in the birth rate of white Europeans.Since then, similar claims have been advanced in other national contexts, notably in the United States.Mainstream scholars have dismissed these claims as rooted in a misunderstanding of demographic statistics and premised upon an unscientific, racist worldview. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, the Great Replacement “has been widely ridiculed for its blatant absurdity.”[3]
