Some of the usual complainers came out like clockwork when Tesla and Twitter CEO Elon Musk recently doubled down on previous criticisms of billionaire left wing activist George Soros. Musk gets under the skin of many for supporting even moderately right of center views, as well as unbanning many people after purchasing Twitter.
Musk is far from “far-right”, however, he’s been labeled such by many anyway for simply not being an extreme leftist like so many other billionaires and celebrities are. In the world of fame and fortune, it’s simply easier to be left wing. But Musk chose a different path. Not only is he pushing back, he’s doing something about the power structure that makes it so in the first place.
Buying Twitter was a huge start for making the playing field more fair for conservatives, whether celebrities or not. Without the rampant heavy handed leftist censorship tactics recently employed by the former owners of Twitter, its easier for people to speak their mind. Although there is still a small amount of censorship on Twitter, many on the right still see a marked improvement in their view.
When the right is heavily censored, the left is able to run with narratives that don’t even make any logical sense. For example, Elon Musk has been critical of George Soros for his left wing political activism. Musk believes Soros has contributed to the downhill trend of life quality in many large metropolitan cities, in part due to funding of soft on crime district attorneys.
This political viewpoint has nothing to do with Soros’ ethnicity, religion, or heritage. However, since the left is so spoiled by censorship of their opponents on the right, they got sloppy and lazy and started saying things they don’t have any basis in fact, and have been getting away with it for a very long time.
The narrative is beginning to crumble. Musk’s Community Notes feature on Twitter recently fact checked a false racism claim against a nurse. The story was originally that the woman was trying to steal a bike from multiple Black men, and so it must be more racism. Ultimately Attorney Ben Crump and NBC News were fact checked, the lady rented the bike herself and had the receipt to prove it. Examples of bald faced liberal lies being debunked in real time are becoming more prominent.
Recently many such as the ADL’s Jonathan Greenblatt and others implied that Musk’s criticisms of Soros, while perhaps not antisemitic directly, contribute to “tropes” that fuel antisemitism. Even left wing Washington Post just reported a story totally debunking these claims against Musk, vindicating him once again as an honest man of the people.
Washington Post describes Amichai Chikli as the “An Israeli minister officially tasked with fighting antisemitism”. Chikli Recently defended Musk, destroying the ongoing attacks.
“As Israel’s minister who’s entrusted on combating anti-Semitism, I would like to clarify that the Israeli government and the vast majority of Israeli citizens see Elon Musk as an amazing entrepreneur and a role model. Criticism of Soros – who finances the most hostile organizations to the Jewish people and the state of Israel is anything but anti-Semitism, quite the opposite!”
Most people who are good faith actors don’t hate anyone simply for their religion or ethnicity. Being able to criticize one’s political activism alone should not be tied into false claims of bigotry, and it seems Musk is single-handedly busting up the operation by leftists to gaslight people into fearing speaking out against bad politics.
