Elon Musk warns: Assassination Risk Is ‘Quite Significant’, Swears Off Signing Autographs ‘Ever Again’

Elon Musk says he’ll never again sign autographs. He warns that there is a “very significant” risk of assassination

The world’s richest man, Elon Musk, has issued a frightening warning about the possibility of the assassination he now confronts. This warning emphasizes the seriousness of the task he has taken on in his attempt to provide a fair playing field on Twitter, which was previously controlled by the left and may include the American intelligence community as a cooperating partner, as seen by the censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story.

During a discussion on Twitter Spaces on Saturday, Musk spoke about his security and assured viewers that he would “absolutely” not “be performing any open-air auto parades.”


He admitted that there was a “considerable danger” of anything horrible occurring to him or maybe getting shot. “It’s not that difficult to murder someone if you wanted to, so I hope they don’t, that fortune favors my case, and it doesn’t happen… There is undoubtedly some danger involved.

At the end of the day, we just want to live in a world where we aren’t persecuted, said the self-described “free speech absolutist” who has emerged as the left’s number one foe.

Musk said that this is a place “[where] our voice is not restrained and we can express ourselves freely without fear of retaliation.” “You should be able to say anything you want as long as you aren’t really hurting someone else,”

To get an idea of how seriously Musk is taking the threats, watch the video that was shot at Dulles International Airport, which is located just outside of Washington, District of Columbia.

Musk can be heard speaking throughout this clip. He declared as he got into a car that he wouldn’t sign autographs “ever again” while a number of stern security personnel were surrounding him.

On Saturday, Musk spoke about the Twitter data leak and blasted the previous leadership group for “bidding” on the Democratic Party.

He said, “Frankly, Twitter was behaving like an arm of the Democratic National Committee; it was crazy,” before stating that “if Twitter is doing one team’s work before an election, shutting down dissident views on a critical election, that is the definition of election meddling.”
