Elon Musk’s partner calls for AI communism

Grimes releases TikTok calling for support of AI to achieve communism.

Opposites seem to attract! Eccentric billionaire and self-professed capitalist Elon Musk’s girlfriend has been making waves on TikTok for her recent offerings of political solutions.

Grimes – a Canadian born musician with just under two million followers on Instagram – recently took to TikTok to express her belief society – especially communists – should embrace the use of AI (artificial intelligence) in farming and other lines of work to “solve for abundance” and create a society “where nobody has to work”.

Grimes donned a series of elaborate facial drawings and donned heavy eyeliner during the recording adding to her attempted dystopian aesthetic. This recording comes hot off the heels of Musk’s recent expansion into the crypto-currency market, and both of their recent appearances on hit show SNL.

Community reactions have been mixed, with a minority of top comments on the original TikTok supporting Grimes’ views and efforts.

Others within the community haven’t been as accepting, with many comments calling her out for the irony of these statements and her relationship status with Musk and position as a multi-millionaire musician. Commentary platforms ranging from the Daily Mail to Vanity Fair also seem critical of Grimes’ propositions pointing out Musk’s clear capitalist connections.

Musk has an estimated wealth of $152 billion.

While it seems Grimes and Musk overlap in their love of technology, their proposed uses seem to differ greatly from each other. Grimes’ TikTok currently has over 2.3 million views. View it here.

    Musk is ‘dating’ a 12 year old witch with big ears and a huge lisp. Nice.

    Of course rich, entitled , societal elites want communism as they think they will be above the crowd of the ones forced into servitude. One only has to look at what is happening in Belarus/China/NK to see where communism/socialism leads. As long as these elitist toe the party line and promote the regime they allowed to keep their wealth but say one condescending word and they to are quickly arrested and never heard of again.
    The exact same thing happened in Nazi Germany in the 1930s and Russia in the the 1920s and 30s

    Proof Musk and Grimes are on board with The World Economic Forum. Isn’t that there plan?

    There is nothing to prevent Musk and Grimes, with their overabundance of wealth, from adopting a homeless person and using their wealth to help that person solve the issues that made them homeless in the first place. And then doing it again and again.

    But it is not about actual accomplishment, but about posturing from an isolated position of power. Talking an idealistic game and never doing anything concrete to make the game real because it might be messy and cost them personally.

    Another manifestation of 1984’s “Ignorance is Strength” by technocratic elites who have no idea how they became fabulously wealthy – and neither does anyone else.

    Why would any self-respecting Billionaire boast about the “Communists I know” except after smoking too much weed? (as Elon did a few years back and got roundly criticized for it)

    Now he just lets his bimbo do it for him.

    These A holes who live life served hand and foot are more than welcome to relocate to China and live a communist life of a bottom tear street dweller and then tell us how great communism is…. I personally will stick to capitalism

    Wow !! Sadly, while people around the world fight for freedom. It’s bimbos like this who want to take our freedoms away. The urbanization of societal socialism & the unawareness of what’s past their urban boundaries isn’t surprising.

Hundreds of Albertans protest in front of UCP MLA offices over COVID restrictions

So just a few hours after Kenney brought in the new restrictions on Wednesday, ready they were – and about a dozen MLA offices were picketed.

He knew they couldn’t stop the government from bringing in even more COVID-19 restrictions, but Jordon Kosik wanted to be ready to show his displeasure.

Operating two Facebook groups, Holding MLAs Accountable and Closed for Fall, Kosik had his 17,000 members ready to protest just hours after Premier Jason Kenney brought in a fourth COVID-19 lockdown, which this time includes vaccination passports.

“A couple of weeks ago, we knew something was happening,” Kosik said in a Thursday interview with the Western Standard.

“There was nothing we could do to stop it, but what we could do is get ready.”

So just a few hours after Kenney brought in the new restrictions on Wednesday, ready they were – and about a dozen MLA offices were picketed.

Some had a handful of people show up, while others had scores of people.

“This was on organic protest, people in their own ridings,” said Kosik.

And Kovik thinks this won’t be the end of restrictions, with more likely in a couple of weeks.

“To get ready for that we have to network, network, network,” Koik said.

Vancouver cops are on the hunt for an armed killer after a gangster was slain Wednesday during a daylight shooting in Vancouver’s core area.

Amandeep Manj, 35, a known member of the United Nations gang, was shot about 3:30 p.m while sitting inside his car in the parking lot of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel near Canada Place.

Soon after he bloodied body was discovered, paramedics raced to the lot, but Manj was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said they’re convinced the shooting was a targeted hit.

Several news sources said the homicide victim was well-known in Vancouver’s illicit drug trade.

Manj’s brother, Jodh Manj, also died a violent death three years ago when he was killed while leaving a Mexico City gym.

Vancouver Police Const. Tania Visintin told the Vancouver Sun Manj is the city’s 13th homicide of 2021.

She told the paper officers responded to level three of the parkade near Cordova and Burrard streets “after a man was found unresponsive by a witness.” 

Police have made no arrests in the case, and ask anyone who may have information about the shooting to contact Vancouver police.

COVID vaccines changing their names

The FDA approved new names in the US earlier this summer.

What’s in a name? Plenty, apparently, when it comes to COVID-19 vaccines in Canada.

Health Canada announced Thursday it will accept the change in new brand names of the three most common vaccines Pfizer, Moderna and Oxford-AstraZeneca.

The Moderna vaccine will go by SpikeVax and the AstraZeneca vaccine will be named Vaxzevria.

The Pfizer vaccine will now be called Comirnaty, which the company said represents a combination of the terms COVID-19, mRNA, community, and immunity.

CBC said the vaccines didn’t go by their brand name initially, but now that new and more long-term data has been submitted and approved they will go by their permanent name.

Canada is still expected to receive vials labelled Pfizer-BioNTech for the next several months.

The FDA approved new names in the US earlier this summer.
