Elon Musk recently claimed sending his daughter to a Los Angeles school led her to be brainwashed into accepting ‘communism’ and hating the well-off.
The Wall Street Journal published a preview of Walter Issacson’s biography of Musk, where he detailed the timeline of events that led Musk to take over Twitter and then rebrand the company now known as X.
He detailed how sending one of his eldest twin children to the Santa Monica Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences infected his kid with what he termed the “woke mind virus.”

The teen came out as trans in recent years and even petitioned the courts for a name change from Xavier Musk to Vivian Jenna Wilson at the age of 18 in 2022, according to the New York Post.
During the Issacson interview, Musk described how he was “generally sanguine” about the transition.
He then explained how his child’s behavior changed as Wilson “became a fervent Marxist and broke off all relations with him.”
Musk noted, “She went beyond socialism to being a full communist and thinking that anyone rich is evil.”
Musk earned his billionaire fortune mainly by building two successful companies and retaining his stocks, per CBS News.
He was notoriously known for working 70 to 80 hours per week until acquiring Twitter, which then added to his workload and led him to claim that he works a 24/7, 120-hour workweek, according to the Observer.
Despite his success through hard work, Musk opened up to Issacson about the pain that the rift with his child has caused and noted that it is worse than when his first child died.
He also noted, “I’ve made many overtures, but she doesn’t want to spend time with me.”
Musk then compared his personal struggle with Wilson to the issues he witnessed on Twitter. He said it “had become infected by a similar mindset that suppressed right-wing and anti-establishment voices.”
This led him to become a self-proclaimed “fire-breathing dragon” for Twitter as he bought the company to change the imbalances.
The New York Post reported that they contacted the Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences for comment but have yet to receive a response.
