Elon Musk certainly needs no introduction. He might be one of the wealthiest men in the world, but he is not without his fair share of controversies. In fact, he recently did a U-turn on an Antisemitic statement he made.
According to RadarOnline.com, Elon Musk faced backlash after appearing to support a tweet containing antisemitic sentiments. In response to a post claiming that Jewish communities promote hatred against whites, Musk initially commented in support of the statement.
”Jewish communities have been pushing the exact kind of dialectical hatred against whites that they claim to want people to stop using against them.”
“You have said the actual truth.”
After a few hours, Musk made a U-turn on his stance as he stated, “‘decolonization’ necessarily implies a Jewish genocide, thus it is unacceptable to any reasonable person.” He went on to criticize the Anti-Defamation League and accused them of promoting anti-white racism and racism against Asians.
”And, at the risk of being repetitive, I am deeply offended by ADL’s messaging and any other groups who push de facto anti-white racism or anti-Asian racism or racism of any kind.
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.
I’m sick of it. Stop now.”
Elon Musk’s comments led to further controversy, with some labeling him the “world’s richest bigot.” Critics pointed out that Musk’s initial support for a tweet containing antisemitic content was problematic and raised concerns about his views on certain sensitive and longstanding issues.
”Yes, but this is not fair to say or truthful to say that ‘Jewish communities’ promote dialectical hatred towards white. Say what you want about the ADL, but don’t generalize the Jewish community.”
“You just used Nazi talking points to criticize Jews my dude.”
“I would go further: the guy Elon is agreeing with actually says “Jewish communities have been *pushing*” racism against white people. This is a straight-up neo-Nazi talking point, and Elon calls it “the actual truth.”
”The World’s Richest Bigot. Another Twitter Firestorm Against Jews.”
The controversy surrounding Musk’s comments has made it evident Elon Musk doesn’t know when to stop talking and ends up in deeper trouble than usual. Regardless, it is unlikely he will change anytime soon.
