“Take the red pill” is a reference in the blockbuster movie when the character Morpheus (Lawrence Fishburne) reveals to the protagonist Neo (Keanu Reeves) that he’s been living in a computer simulation. Neo has a choice: Take a blue pill and go back to his life as usual, or take a red pill to learn the truth about his fake reality.
It has since been adopted on the right as a metaphor in internet subculture, and it usually refers to some conservative or men’s rights groups beliefs that feminists and liberals often control the media and cultural narrative…Meanwhile, the mother of Grimes, Sandy Garossino, also blasted Musk, the father of her daughter’s newborn baby. In a now-deleted tweet Garossino accused him of “blaring men’s rights activist bulls***” after he sent out the Red Pill comment…

Trump’s and Musk’s no substance plastic reality is the shit hole Matrix Pod world of meaningless illusion they can never escape from. Fuck both of them.
The W sisters Netflix series Sense 8 is fantastic, even better than the Matrix.

But now there is less than zero chance I will ever buy a Tesla. No way I’m sending money to that a hole. Though I suppose some part of my taxes is ending up there anyway. He should be grateful, fat chance!
