CEO of Tesla Elon Musk is concerned about a recent tweet that is encouraging arson at Tesla dealerships all across the United States.
The report stemmed from journalist Andy Ngo who shared a screenshot on his Twitter account from a now-suspended user who was calling for members of Antifa to “protest” outside of Tesla dealerships.
The tweet from the now-deleted Antifa-affiliated account read “Tonight in Portland! Every city, every town! Show up at your local Tesla dealerships in protest of Elon Musk!”.
In that same tweet was a picture of a Tesla on Fire, which has Tesla dealerships across the country on high alert.

Here was the original flyer from the now-suspended user on Twitter:

After looking at the flyer it’s clear that Antifa doesn’t want to “protest” at all but rather start a riot and terror attacks.
Journalist Andy Ngo, who has covered Antifa exclusively for the last several years, reported shortly after the flyer made rounds on the internet, a man with a crowbar in Lynnwood, Washington lit a fire near propane tanks outside of a Tesla building.
Earlier tonight next to the @Tesla dealership in Lynnwood, WA, a suspect threatened police with a crowbar & said he would blow up the building. He then started a fire next to propane tanks. No confirmed motive for attack but #Antifa had urged arson attacks on Tesla the same day. pic.twitter.com/SpJnqMsVBj

On the bright side, many of the users who were inciting violence at Tesla Dealerships have been suspended from Twitter which shows Twitter has finally turned away from their old policies which allowed for BLM and ANTIFA operatives to have immunity from suspension.
