In an interview with the British tabloid The Sun, the founder of Tesla and owner of X, Elon Musk’s father Errol, speaks of his concerns about his son’s conflicts with influential power players. He fears that the “shadow government” will assassinate him.
Elon Musk has previously mentioned the possibility of dying under “mysterious circumstances”. The 77-year-old father is deeply concerned about potential assassination attempts and has urged his son to increase his security measures.
The reason for this is Elon Musk’s current legal confrontations with the U.S. Justice Department and his overwhelmingly negative portrayal in the international press.
President Joe Biden recently stated that “there’s a lot of ways” to investigate the tech billionaire. Errol believes that more brutal means than mere legal action could be employed to stop his son.
At the end of August, journalist Ronan Farrow penned an article in The New Yorker titled “Elon Musk’s Shadow Rule”, criticizing Musk’s influence and painting him as dangerous and uncontrollable. According to Errol, this article should be seen as “a hit job, a shadow government-sponsored opening salvo on Elon”.
– The artillery-like softening up of the enemy before the actual attack and preparing of the ever-submissive people for the attack.
When asked if he fears the shadow government will kill Elon, the 77-year-old replied succinctly, “yes”.
According to Errol, Elon now shares his apprehensions about assassination attempts, especially since Joe Biden neither denies nor confirms if Elon Musk is considered a national security threat. The father previously described his son as “a force for good”, passionate about confronting liars.
”Elon is a force for good. Like Napoleon, he wants to make things better with Tesla, Neuralink, SpaceX, and now Twitter, where he is exposing the liars and bad people doing very bad things”.
In December, the Tesla founder himself commented on the threats against him, asserting that there is “definitely a risk” he could be assassinated.
– Frankly, the risk of something bad happening to me, or even literally being shot, is quite significant, he said at the time.
