(LifeSiteNews) — On the first day of “pride month,” Elon Musk boasted on Twitter of the perfect rating that his company — Tesla — again earned from the nation’s most powerful LGBT lobbying group, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC).
“Tesla scores 100/100 for 7th year in a row for LGBTQ equality,” wrote Musk.

Each year, HRC issues a “Corporate Equity Index” which evaluates “policies, practices and benefits pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) employees,” for hundreds of U.S. corporations.
Tesla, Inc. received a perfect score in part because of its commitment to “inclusive benefits” for LGBT individuals, including “equivalency in same- and different-sex spousal medical and soft benefits” and “equal health coverage for transgender individuals.”
Interestingly, while Musk’s perfect LGBT rating tweet garnered over 55,000 “likes” since yesterday, another tweet he posted on the previous day, May 31 — “pride month” eve— warning his followers of the 30-day barrage of constant corporate rainbow virtue signaling which was about to begin, far-outpaced his pro-LGBT post, having been “liked” over 1.3 million times.
Put another way, 25 times more of Musk’s followers found his tweet warning about “pride month” more interesting and more pertinent than his tweet bragging about his company’s high rating from LGBT D.C. powerhouse the Human Rights Campaign.

In the space of 24 hours, the billionaire tech guru behind SpaceX, Tesla, and Neuralink, delivered mixed messages — strikingly divergent ones — about LGBT corporate and political power via Twitter, perhaps as a means of testing the attitudes of those who use the giant social media firm he will likely soon own.
