CNN’s Jake Tapper spread fake news about Elon Musk’s allegedly antisemitic tweets, which Republican presidential contender Ron DeSantis chose not to denounce.
Musk has had a “target on his back” since buying Twitter, according to DeSantis, who first denied seeing the message. Tapper showed DeSantis the post, which cited a widespread antisemitic conspiracy theory about “hordes of minorities” rushing into Western nations and claimed that Jewish communities had been promoting dialectical hate toward whites.
Online hate groups and the convicted killer of eleven worshipers at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue in 2018, Robert Bowers, have both espoused the antisemitic conspiracy theory that Jews want to bring undocumented minority populations into Western countries to reduce White majorities in those nations.
Based on preliminary statistics, the Anti-Defamation League stated that antisemitic events in the US surged by 388% in the weeks after the October 7th Hamas assault in Israel. Even while it did not have statistics, the Council on American-Islamic Relations also saw increased complaints after the incident.
Almost immediately after Musk supported the alleged antisemitic tweet, significant businesses such as Disney, Paramount, NBCUniversal, Comcast, Lionsgate, and Warner Bros. Discovery (the parent company of CNN) slammed him and pulled their ads from X.
In response to the backlash to Elon Musk’s tweet on inclusion, diversity, and equality, Ben Shapiro—the former editor-in-chief and current host of The Daily Wire—defended Musk on his program last week. In Shapiro’s view, he concurred that liberal Jewish groups have backed immigration policies that have brought in individuals who despise Jews and Western culture.
Shapiro said that Instead of covering the rampant anti-Semitism and massive pro-Hamas rallies happening all over the globe, the media has focused on spreading false information about human rights crimes committed by Israel. Their attention is instead directed towards their political adversaries, such as Trump and Musk, whom they accuse of being Hitler’s acolytes.
