Was one of the English divers a pedophile? Elon Musk seems to think so. Let’s dive in and investigate this murky drama.

Was one of the English divers a pedophile? Elon Musk seems to think so. Let’s dive in and investigate this murky drama.

In an interview with CNN one of the main divers in the cave rescue called Musk’s mini sub impractical and a publicity stunt, and he suggests Musk stick said impractical stunt where it hurts. Naturally Musks response was to call the diver a pedo, because clearly everyone who lives in Thailand is a pedophile. The thread is mostly critical of Musk, however here are the highlights of Musks most loyal supporters .

To kick it off we have this nice conversation starter.

Now let’s expand on that. Clearly Elon helped while all of you just sat on your ass.

The diver was rude and Musk had the best intentions, making a perfectly understandable gaffe.

Everything is a tad too black and white for some.

It was really hard for me to not piss in the popcorn. Some people were acting like the only choice Elon had when he got mad was to call that guy a pedophile. This man is literally a CEO and should know how to control his emotions and be a professional. He’s way too insecure if he gets that upset when somebody says something kinda rude (but valid) about him.

Also that user who was excusing Musk because he was “bullied as a child for being different and smarter than everyone else” is probably his alt account tbh

Elon is clearly delusional if he thinks that calling someone who right now the rest of the world sees as a hero a fucking pedo is gonna fly well.

That, or he really thinks he did more than the divers who risked (or in one case) lost their lives.

Elon is clearly delusional

Yes

my favorite rage post so far

That's bullshit. Saying something bad does not make you a bad person. And being on the wrong end of a civil suit does not equal bad person. If I followed you around with a microphone or a camera for years and years, there'd most likely be way WAY worse.

If Elon said this in person, in a fit of rage, I would think "that's kinda odd, he seems really mad. I'll leave and let him cool off." Instead it turns to "OMG ELON IS LITERALLY HITLER OMGZZZZZ WE GOT HIM NOW FINALLY!!!!" And then you winder why the mainstream media is dying. People are past the outrage culture and see it for what it is. Character assassination. Just like the "grab em by the pussy" comment in a bus must automatically mean Trump is Ted Bundy. Even though 1/2 of every heterosexual man I've ever known has said far, far worse.

Don't fhange the goalposts. You guys hate him because he's criticizing fake news. The GOOD news is that the left driving him away with such ferocity and emotion will only drive him towards the ever growing Conservative camp. In our eyes, saying a bad thing in a flash of emotion doesn't make you literally Hitler.

And here comes to the kicker

Keep it up! I used to hate Elon btw, now I'm actually starting to open up to him as a person. Rich Billionaire douchebag? Yes sort of. Still better than the Upper-Middle class douchebags and snobs I see all over reddit that pretend they've never said a pussy joke or called anyone a pedo.

There is a kind of person who literally starts liking (or votes for) a person to trigger the libs

Elon Musk is identified as a major Republican super PAC donor and r/elonmusk goes full civil war.

Very rich guy with strong libertarian leanings who also hates unions donates to Republicans, you don't say

Least suprising thing ever.

Union-busting, anti-worker billionaire donates to union-busting, anti-worker party of billionaires I’m just shocked!

imagine dedicating a subreddit talking about some billionaire businessman who doesn't give a fuck about you

With r/MillionDollarExtreme's future uncertain, r/Drama can't decide whether to gloat or brace for a wave of refugees if MDE actually gets banned

MDE is a bit of an obscure sub, so a primer: Officially, it's a subreddit devoted to an edgy sketch comedy group. Back when /sub/altright got banned, a bunch of its users migrated to MDE, and now it looks like what you'd get if Holden Caulfield had discovered /pol/. If I had to choose one post that sums that place up best, it would be this rant about airports.

Anyway, the admins apparently have decided to start making the MDE mods enforce the rules, judging by this mod announcement. /sub/drama got on the story.

(For what it's worth: The cheesecakey flair photo of the pregnant white woman being kissed by her black husband is a special flair that the Drama mods assigned to all users from MDE).

"Nooo, that means even more mdegenerates invading", 86 kiddie comments.

The age-old question: Is r/Drama satire or alt-right?

Second /sub/drama thread, posted by someone who apparently didn't know what was up with the preggers pic flair, suggesting that users from MDE get custom-flaired with yellow stars.

Fellow dramatards, this is why we need strong mods. When we merely pretend to be retarded, we att...

I mostly want to talk about that airport thing.

I'm so confused by his dream scenario of being an old man that gives two dudes in khakis fifty bucks each just for being handsome and white. What the fuck is that?

> once monthly trip to walmart > see stacey with black guy > tinder: 0 matches > logs onto MDE > "this is why we need the ethnostate"

This part on the /sub/drama thread killed me

I'm still laughing at this description of America as a mixed salad.

Not all elements in the salad are equally desirable. Foreign elements can exist (physical debris and viral bacteria, like E. coli).

A patrician majority (salad leaves) carry the weight, maintaining order and balance.

They're actively wilted by the Dressing Jew, which is a fattening agent for the weak-willed.

The fucking "Dressing Jew"

It's a word scramble:

old man

fuck

two

handsome and white

dudes in khakis

for

fifty bucks each

How dare he close a wildly racist and sexist subreddit?! We'll sure show him!

KIA is KIA

Now when my grandkids ask me what I was doing when KIA was shut down for like 20 minutes I'll be able to proudly tell them I was there

What happened to drama?

Like Icarus they flew too close to the sun and burned along with their dreams.

On a serious note pretty sure some of the mods made /sub/picsofdeadwhitepeople and that may have been the final straw

I'm about 50/50 on whether something actually happened, or it's just the mods inciting meta drama like normal.

Huffman, explain to me how there's a rule against bullying but not against racism. How the fuck is racism not bullying? Is that just there so people don't bully the racists?

The storm has been calmed. CBTS_Stream has been banned.

/sub/cbts_stream has been banned for violation of Reddit's content policy, specifically for encouraging and inciting violence and posting personal and confidential information.

Not to worry, /sub/conspiracy is on the case:

Were they banned for getting too close to the truth?

Classic /sub/politics is just as bad repeated multiple times.

One conspiracy poster thinks that Reddit is trying to SILENCE people AGAIN

EDIT: . This'll probably get you put on a list.

EDIT2: For those of who you don't know what CBTS_Stream is, CBTS stands for "Calm Before the Storm". /u/moby323 has a good explanation of what they believed in:

It was a pro-Trump subreddit that focused on "deep state" conspiracy theories.

In particular, they believe there is a twitter/4chan user named Q that is actually a high level government official who is leaking info about the deep state. The deep state, among it's many other evils, runs a global network of child sex slaves. The money raised from this network, and from the sale of child pornography, goes to enrich the Clintons and is the real source for most of the money that funds Democratic campaigns. Yes, really.

They also think that Trump's main reason to run for office was to take down the deep state. They believe that in Trump's tweets all of the misspellings, random use of capital letters, and weird punctuation is intentional and is actually part of an elaborate code that Trump is using to communicate about the deep state, and that this code has predicted everything from the Las Vegas shooting to the California mudslides. Yes, really.

The reason they were banned is encouraging violence and doxxing. One example is remember a while back where that train full of GOP congressmen hit a truck, they got a hold of the trucking company's number and harassed the shit out of them and accused them to be deep state operatives, child rapists etc. Yes, really.

tl;dr

Batshit crazy Trump supporters who think everything is part of a deep state conspiracy and who love to encourage violence and doxxing.

There is also a NYmag article that explains the conspiracy here

Banning them probably won't accomplish what you want. However, letting them fall apart from their own dysfunction probably will. Their engagement is shrinking over time, and that's much more powerful than shutting them down outright.

It was when Spez originally wrote it, and it still is now

Is this a shitpost

Edit: oops yes it is

Bugs me tremendously. Admins are clearly signaling that at some point the_dipshits will be shut down, but all this circling the drain on the smaller, more batshit subreddits does is give them time to organize a fallback plan.
