Elon Musk ‘blames the Jews’

Anti-Defamation League boss Jonathan Greenblatt continues his media tour, as he seeks to counter attacks from prominent online influencers and Twitter/X owner Elon Musk over the track record of the ADL for defaming individuals and businesses and attempting to sever their relationships with advertisers.

Greenblatt’s last appearance was The pivot podcast with tech journalist Kara Swisher and Scott Gallorway. He told the hosts that he had a positive opinion of Linda Yaccarino, Twitter’s new CEO, and said that all he wanted was for Elon Musk to “work with” his organization, while continuing to accuse the owner of X/Twitter of promoting anti-Semitism. by allowing more freedom of expression on the platform.

“A number of people who were removed for violating the terms of service are back on the platform. They continue to say things, post things, publish things that are not questionable. They are absolutely and unambiguously hostile,” Greenblatt said. “And they add fuel to the fire of this environment in which, once again, Jews and other minorities feel a certain vulnerability. »

The ADL boss then established a link between the online “radicalization” he condemns on Twitter and the actual murders.

“And I’m flying tomorrow or today to attend the funerals tomorrow in Jacksonville of the people who were killed in this hate crime. The fact is that the radicalization of people online has real-world implications, and the normalization of anti-Semitism and the weaponization of hatred is bad for the world. »

Responding to a question from podcast co-host Galloway, Greenblatt agreed with Elon Musk’s comparison to Nazis in 1930s Germany.

“What is, in my opinion, less opaque is that the basic principle, the playbook during the emergence of Nazi Germany was, ‘I know, let’s blame the Jews,'” Galloway said . “And what we have here is the richest man in the world, arguably the most powerful man in the world, completely blaming the Jews. It seems very strategic to me that he singled out your organization to blame for its declining revenue. But isn’t that how it all begins? Generally speaking, the most powerful and richest American should not start by blaming the Jews.”

“The short answer is yes,” Greenblatt said. “The longer answer is that demagoguery is nothing new. Blaming the Jews is as old as time. »

Greenblatt did not call Musk an anti-Semite himself, but went on to blame him for “raging anti-Semitism” on X/Twitter.

“But the only group Elon is talking about right now is the Jewish group. Now listen, I talked to Elon Musk. I didn’t think he was anti-Semitic, and yet I took him at his word. The problem is that when he speaks out, when he engages, when he rejects blame, it creates the conditions in which anti-Semitism is raging on the platform right now. »
