Elon Musk, who has steered X (formerly Twitter) into a tsunami of antisemitic discourse since taking over the site in 2022, has now endorsed a post attacking Jewish communities and accusing them of promoting “dialectical hatred against whites.”
On Wednesday, X user @CWBOCA, whose bio states “Jewish Conservative from S. Florida,” shared a PSA from the Foundation to Combat Antisemitism that depicts a father confronting his son for posting the pro-Nazi refrain “Hitler was right” online. The post is captioned: “To the cowards hiding behind the anonymity of the internet and posting ‘Hitler was right’: You got something you want to say? Why dont you say it to our faces…”
In response, another user, @breakingbaht, claimed that Jewish communities “have been pushing the exact kind of dialectical hatred against whites that they claim to want people to stop using against them,” adding, “I’m deeply disinterested in giving the tiniest shit now about western Jewish populations coming to the disturbing realization that those hordes of minorities that support flooding their country don’t exactly like them too much.”
Shortly after, Musk replied, “You have said the actual truth.” In the same thread, the billionaire later added, “The ADL unjustly attacks the majority of the West, despite the majority of the West supporting the Jewish people and Israel. This is because they cannot, by their own tenets, criticize the minority groups who are their primary threat. It is not right and needs to stop.”
The Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish nonprofit and civil rights organization focused on combating antisemitism and extremism, has repeatedly caught Musk’s ire. In September, Musk personally amplified a campaign calling for the banning of the ADL by liking a post by a notorious white nationalist, and subsequently blamed the non-profit for a 60 percent plummet in U.S. advertising revenue for the site. (In fact, advertisers have tended to blame Musk himself for their departure.) At one point, Musk also threatened a defamation suit against the organization, calculating that they had cut his company’s value in half, alleging the ADL is liable for a loss he estimated at $22 billion.
As Musk wades deeper into antisemitic propaganda, X has failed to root out graphic media, false claims, and hateful content surrounding the Israel-Hamas war. In October, Musk himself, in a since-deleted tweet, encouraged his nearly 160 million X followers to follow an antisemitic account known for spreading lies.
