The monthlong temper tantrum that was set off when billionaire Elon Musk’s $44 billion deal to buy social media giant Twitter closed drags on with celebs whining and engaging in silly attention seeking stunts.
Left-winger Alyssa Milano thought that she had really stuck it to the world’s richest man and new “Chief Twit” when she proudly announced that she had gotten rid of her Tesla electric vehicle, swapping it out for a Volkswagen.
“I gave back my Tesla,” the prolific tweeter posted on Saturday. “I bought the VW ev. I love it. I’m not sure how advertisers can buy space on Twitter. Publicly traded company’s products being pushed in alignment with hate and white supremacy doesn’t seem to be a winning business model.”
I gave back my Tesla.
I bought the VW ev.
I love it.
I’m not sure how advertisers can buy space on Twitter. Publicly traded company’s products being pushed in alignment with hate and white supremacy doesn’t seem to be a winning business model.

In her rush to boast about her new purchase and push the economic warfare agenda of “woke” corporate boycotts to protest the Tesla/SpaceX CEO’s housecleaning at Twitter, the aging, D-list actress failed to realize that her ignorance of the history of the German company with Volkswagen being endorsed by none other than Der Führer himself.
Twitter users were quick to educate Milano as her boasting about her new ride quickly backfired.
“Volkswagen was literally founded by the Nazi’s and Hitler. “Tweeted black conservative commentators the Hodge Twins, a response to the yappy activist that caught the attention of Musk who posted a laughing so hard I’m crying and “100” emoji.

This is hilarious. Milano says she traded in her Tesla for a Volkswagen because she’s against companies connected to white supremacy.
Volkswagen was founded by Nazis. The jokes just write themselves. https://t.co/6I0ZE9MEuC

Seriously if you’re going to be a moral superiority shopper, maybe a quick Google search before hitting up the auto dealer is a good idea.

Ironic you mention white supremacy since Volkswagen was a proud product of the Nazi regime. Looks like you went from the frying pan into the fire. No?

Hitler & the nazis would be proud of you @Alyssa_Milano since they founded the company you woke idiot!

You “gave back” a car made by a company founded by an African-American who fights climate change and “environmental inequity” because you’re against “white supremacy,” but you replaced it with a car made by a company founded by literal Nazis.
I’ve got nothing.

If you praise Woodrow Wilson, who held screenings of “The Birth of a Nation” at the White House, then brag about buying a car from a company founded by Nazis, you really should stop virtue signaling about others aligning themselves with hate and White Supremacy.

Buying a VW in righteous defiance of white supremacy? I can’t tell who’s doing dark parody at this point…

Wow, you really showed @elonmusk “who’s the boss”

According to History.com:
“On May 28, 1937, the government of Germany—then under the control of Adolf Hitler of the National Socialist (Nazi) Party—forms a new state-owned automobile company, then known as Gesellschaft zur Vorbereitung des Deutschen Volkswagens mbH. Later that year, it was renamed simply Volkswagenwerk, or ‘The People’s Car Company.’”
“Originally operated by the German Labor Front, a Nazi organization, Volkswagen was headquartered in Wolfsburg, Germany. In addition to his ambitious campaign to build a network of autobahns and limited access highways across Germany, Hitler’s pet project was the development and mass production of an affordable yet still speedy vehicle that could sell for less than 1,000 Reich marks (about $140 at the time). To provide the design for this ‘people’s car,’ Hitler called in the Austrian and German automotive engineer Ferdinand Porsche. In 1938, at a Nazi rally, the Fuhrer declared: ‘It is for the broad masses that this car has been built. Its purpose is to answer their transportation needs, and it is intended to give them joy.’”
Despite their constant invocations of Hitler and the Nazis that the left has used for years to smear their opponents it has always been obvious than they knew little about actual history, Milano is a prime example of those eager to score political points but too intellectually lazy to bother with studying up on the details.
