The wise understand that even in the most tumultuous of times, people must maintain their sense of humor, lest they lose their sense of humanity as well.

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk grasps this concept — but leftists predictably don’t.

Responding to the storming of the U.S. Capitol, Musk posted a funny meme Thursday afternoon containing a photo of the infamous “barbarian” seen hovering over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s podium. The caption of the meme read, “This Is What Happens When You Cancel Burning Man.”

Get it? Burning Man is a a hippy festival in which barely dressed hipsters gather in the middle of the desert annually (except for last year because of the coronavirus pandemic) and basically behave like barbarians (kind of).

Now check out Musk’s meme:

It’s funny, no? I mean, how often does a “barbarian” break into the U.S. Capitol and pose by the House Speaker’s podium?

Leftists disagreed, of course, and responded with their usual ululations of anger, grief, hysteria, bile and false claims.


Notice the abundance of claims that the pro-Trump rioters would have been treated differently had they been black or Muslim versus predominantly white.

This is a blatantly false narrative that can easily be debunked by simply looking at the Black Lives Matter riots of the summer.

BLM extremists burned down numerous homes/businesses, terrorized innocent people and even killed a few, yet their movement was wholly embraced by virtually every Democrat, every corporation and every institution.

Meanwhile, every law enforcement agency literally bowed to them:

And during the few instances that law enforcement officers did fight back against the left-wing extremists, they — not the extremists — were condemned.

In fact, congressional Democrats went so far as to block a GOP-crafted measure in the House to condemn the violent riots. Instead Democrats crafted their own measure — one calling for the defunding of police officers nationwide.

As for Musk, he doesn’t appear to be stressing over the blowback. If anything, he’s now doing better than ever before in his life.

“Elon Musk just became the richest person in the world, with a net worth of more than $185 billion. Thursday’s increase in Tesla’s share price pushed Musk past Jeff Bezos, who had been the richest person since 2017 and is currently worth about $184 billion,” CNBC reported earlier Thursday morning.

“Musk’s wealth surge over the past year marks the fastest rise to the top of the rich list in history — and is a dramatic financial turnaround for the outspoken entrepreneur who just 18 months ago was in the headlines for Tesla’s rapid cash burn and his personal leverage against the company’s stock.”

Of course, leftists are mad about this as well.


Haters gonna hate.
