He's barely hiding it anymore.
American History X
In a deeply disturbing cosign, Twitter-formerly-X owner Elon Musk has publicly agreed with an appalling anti-semitic claim about Jewish people that goes beyond any of his prior flirtations with "anti-woke" bigotry.
The drama started when a small-time account accused "cowards" of "hiding behind the anonymity of the internet and posting 'Hitler was right.'"
"You got something you want to say?" the message continued. "Why don't you say it to our faces…"
And because Musk's X is a toxic cesspool, some creep weighed in to do just that.
"Okay," it posted, followed by a barrage of incomprehensible racist garbage accusing Jewish people of "hatred against whites."
"You want truth said to your face," the poster continued, "there it is."
Okay, just another day on the horrible internet. But then the owner of the X weighed in.
"You have said the actual truth," Musk responded to the horrid tweet about "hatred against whites."
A History of Violence
If that sort of vitriol sounds familiar, it's part and parcel of the white supremacist "great replacement" conspiracy theory, which can be best boiled down to the "Jews will not replace us" chant heard during the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia back in 2017 — as well as a perfect example of how opportunistic racists are twisting the brutal Israel-Palestine conflict to stir up hatred against both Jewish and Muslim people.
While this kind of barely-veiled anti-semitism does appear to be new for the notorious serial entrepreneur, it's far from the first time he's engaged in claims that white people, somehow, are being put at risk by minorities.
As recently as this past summer, the South African-born billionaire echoed the common closeted white supremacist talking point that Black South Africans are "openly pushing for genocide of white people" in his country of origin. That claim, like so many others in this vein, stems from a deliberate misreading of anti-oppression campaigning that does, at times, include violence — in this case, the perpetration attacks on white-owned farms in South Africa that have taken place since the end of the apartheid system of segregation there that upheld the rights of the descendants country's white European colonizers over Black South Africans.
Paired with his anti-woke-ness and his obsession with having a bunch of children, Musk's avowed ascription in everything but word to the great replacement theory makes this latest peek into his belief system seem much less like Isreal-Palestine posturing — which, to be clear, he has also done a bit of recently as well — and more like he's letting his cards show, with a royal flush of white supremacism.
