Elon Musk Criticized After Supporting Claim That Jews Push ‘Hatred Against Whites’
Summary from the AllSides News Team
X owner Elon Musk was again accused of antisemitism after endorsing a claim that Jews had pushed “hatred against whites” while ignoring “hordes of minorities that support flooding their country.”
How It Started: An X user said, “Jewish communties have been pushing the exact kind of dialectical hatred against whites that they claim to want people to stop using against them. 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.”
Musk’s Reply: Musk replied, “You have said the actual truth.” While the billionaire Tesla CEO later added that “this does not extend to all Jewish communities,” he also decried “de facto anti-white racism” and echoed his previous feud with the Anti-Defamation League, saying it “unjustly attacks the majority of the West.”
Backlash: CNN (Lean Left bias) Jake Tapper said Musk pushed “unvarnished anti semitism,” IBM pulled its advertising from X, and Tesla investor Ross Gerber pledged to replace his car with one by Tesla competitor Rivian.
How the Media Covered It: Media outlets — particularly but not exclusively on the left — often labeled Musk’s post as “antisemitic”; The Verge (Lean Left bias) said Musk backed “white pride” in a separate post. Coverage in right-rated outlets appeared to be less common, with a Fox Business (Lean Right bias) headline focused on Musk’s “controversial” criticism of the ADL.
