Even Musk does not have Free Speech

When the worlds richest man buys Twitter in the name of free speech, you would think that he has free speech.

Nope. A court just ruled that his tweets must be pre-approved by a lawyer. Another court said his tweets violate labor law.

And of course the Jews disapprove:

The second-richest man in the world Elon Musk’s recent tirade against fellow billionaire George Soros relies on long-shared antisemitic tropes and could stoke further antisemitic attacks, the Anti-Defamation League said Tuesday, drawing a social media retort from Musk.

Musk fired a tweet Monday likening Soros to Magneto, the fictional comic book supervillain who is a Jewish survivor of the Holocaust like Soros, subsequently claiming Soros “hates humanity” and “wants to erode the very fabric of civilization.”

Musk’s posts echo historical stereotypes against Jews that are “distressing” and “dangerous,” ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt tweeted Tuesday, while American Jewish Committee CEO Ted Deutch later tweeted: “Comparing George Soros to Magneto, a Jewish comic book villain who is a Holocaust survivor like Soros, is extremely pointed and intentional.”
