The world’s creepiest tag team discussed the non-existent population crisis on Tuesday, with Musk blaming “birth control, abortions, and whatnot” to the impending collapse of civilization. When Carlson asked how the “urge to have sex” has been “subverted,” the Twitter CEO criticized how birth control methods have allowed people to “still satisfy limbic instinct but not procreate.” Musk added, “We haven’t yet evolved to deal with that.”
Musk has made the “population crisis” something of a pet cause for a long time, declaring to the audience at a Wall Street Journal event in 2021, “I can’t emphasize this enough, there are not enough people,” and urging them to have more children. The billionaire holds these views in spite of slamming bills that allocate federal funding to child care and running a company that allegedly fired employees for becoming pregnant.
The Fox host shares Musk’s breeder kink, and has decried the “the total collapse of testosterone levels in American men” for a while now, while framing LGBTQ and women’s rights as threats that must be conquered to maintain his preferred patriarchal social order.
