It’s not easy being green.
Just ask Tesla, who has come under attack by some very anti-Tesla enthusiasts in the San Francisco area.
No Sarah Palin and her ilk are not responsible for this wave of anti-Tesla propaganda. How could they be, now that their hero Bill O’Reilly has come out in favor of the sexy green car that could, as well as tons of other Republican types who now appreciate Tesla’s mavericky sales moxy.
No, this rage comes courtesy of an anonymous pamphlet found by former Engadget editor Ryan Block that makes bold statements alleging Tesla drivers of being involved in organized crime, having no morals and supporting spying.
Oh, and Model S drivers are also known to have anal itching.
The small-font pamphlet has been distributed around San Francisco, being placed on windshields of Teslas. Block photographed the flyer and posted it on Twitter so that it’s supporters could learn that: “Psychographic, demographic and marketing studies have been published showing that Tesla drivers have a higher-than-average inclination towards drugs, strange sexual behavior and risk.”
Or they just have good taste in cars, care about the environment and like to look cool when they traverse the roadway.
We suspect these conspiracy theorists are just mad at Tesla because it has in-roads with the media, Google and the government. Or they are bitter because they can’t afford one themselves.
Either way, it really hasn’t been proven that Tesla causes any of the aforementioned issues so its pretty safe to say Teslas are still the bees knees.
