This celebrity, and many others, recently began to openly boycott & oppose a high profile company’s products – due to a donation they found highly objectionable.
If Elon Musk Cares About Climate Change, Why Is He Donating to a Republican PAC?
Elon Musk, SpaceX, and Tesla have a long history of donating to both Republican and Democratic politicians and PACs. But the news that Musk recently donated $38,900 to Protect the House, a PAC working to keep Republicans in control of Congress has raised eyebrows: If Musk truly believes that burning fossil fuels is “the dumbest experiment in history, by far,” he should explain why he continues to support a political party that still largely believes climate change doesn’t exist.
In recent election cycles, Musk has avoided talking too much about specific political candidates, even though he has made donations to Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and a series of Republican and Democratic congressional candidates. But the donation to Protect the House and a $33,900 donation last year to the National Republican Congressional Committee from SpaceX and Tesla are larger sums of money than he donated to Democratic politicians in recent years, according to Open Secrets (it is possible not all of Musk’s political donations are included in its numbers.)
The question, then, is whether Musk’s donation to Protect the House represents any fundamental shift in his politics, and, if he cares about climate change so much, why is he spending money to protect Republican political power? – Source
