Elon Musk Tells Joe Rogan the Real Reason He Bought Twitter

X owner Elon Musk revealed to podcaster Joe Rogan the real reason behind his buying Twitter last year.

“I mean, this is going to sound somewhat melodramatic,” Musk began.

“But I was worried that it was having a corrosive effect on civilization,” Musk said on the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast posted to X.

“That it was having a bad impact and, I mean, part of it is that it’s where it was located, which is, you know, downtown San Francisco.”

“And while I think San Francisco is a beautiful city and we should really fight hard to kind of right the ship of San Francisco, if you walk around downtown San Francisco, right near the X, a.k.a. Twitter, headquarters, it’s a zombie apocalypse,” he added.

“I mean, it’s rough,” Musk said.

During the video, the “mind virus” comments start about the 25:29 mark.

Despite Rogan dressed up for Halloween, the topic is very serious:

“Have you been there?” Elon Musk asked Joe Rogan.

“Not lately, no,” Rogan replied.

“I’ve heard.”

“It’s crazy,” Musk said.

“You can’t believe it until you go there.”

Musk said it was not mere chance the city has fallen so far.

“So now you have to say, well, what philosophy led to that outcome? And that philosophy was being piped to Earth,” he said.

“So, you know, a philosophy that would be ordinarily quite niche and geographically constrained, so that the fallout area would be limited, was effectively given an information weapon, an information technology weapon to propagate what is essentially a mind virus to the rest of Earth,” Musk said.

“The outcome of that mind virus is very clear if you walk around the streets of downtown San Francisco. It is the end of civilization,” he added.

When Rogan highlighted it is suppressing dissenting viewpoints, Musk responded:

“In order for the virus to propagate, it must suppress opposing viewpoints.”

“I mean, you’ve felt the virus,” Musk told Rogan. “People have tried to cancel you so many times.”

“Yeah, it’s fascinating. I don’t think you’re melodramatic at all,” Rogan said.

Last week, newly elected House Speaker Mike Johnson said the FBI used Twitter to censor American speech until Elon Musk took over.

“Twitter was basically an FBI subsidiary before @elonmusk took it over,” Mike Johnson said.

“The Twitter files should be a matter of bipartisan concern for every member of Congress and every American citizen because it is a bedrock principle of our Constitution that the government does not get to decide what speech is acceptable or true.”
