Elon Musk has hinted that he may fight the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for their accusations of antisemitism against the social media platform X and its owner.
According to a report, Musk said that the civil rights organization was trying to destroy X by falsely charging him and his platform with anti-Semitism in a post he made on X. Musk also claimed that advertising income on X has dropped by almost 60% since he formally assumed control of the site in October 2022, mainly owing to the squeeze on advertisers from the Anti-Defamation League.
Musk warned that a defamation action against the ironically named “Anti-Defamation” League would be necessary if the current trend continues.
After a weekend in which a movement titled #BanTheADL trended on X, Musk threatened to sue the ADL. Musk joined the campaign, which demanded the removal of the group’s account. Musk asked if he should poll his 155+ million followers on the subject.
A report shows that Elon Musk would consider releasing communications by the Anti-Defamation League, accused of being a rabid anti-First Amendment organization that has pushed Twitter (X) for many years to crack down on conservative and other accounts that don’t toe the Progressive line.
Elon Musk noted in a response to Libs of Tik-Tok that the ADL has pushed X to crack down on accounts like Libs of Tik-Tok even though the account was never shown to be anti-Semitic. Ironically, the owner of the popular Libs of TikTok account is an Orthodox Jew.
According to a report, while campaigning for secure borders for Israel, the ADL promotes amnesty for all illegal aliens in the US.
The ADL also backs Ukrainian neo-Nazis and collaborates with the FBI.
According to the report, Jonathan Greenblatt has close ties to the federal government.
Greenblatt described #BanTheADL as very antisemitic and a movement begun by an unrepentant bigot that was then extensively supported by Christian nationalists, white supremacists, and conspiracy theorists in a melodramatic fundraising plea.
