Musk sues over anti-Semitism claims.

Social media platform X has sued a left-leaning pressure group that accused the site of allowing antisemitic posts next to advertising.

X lawsuit alleges that Media Matters for America “manipulated” data to undermine and destroy the platform formerly known as Twitter.

After the watchdog released its analysis, firms, including Apple and Disney, temporarily stopped adverts on X. After X boss Elon Musk threatened the lawsuit, Media Matters called him a bully.

The advocacy group said last week that ads had appeared on X alongside posts supporting Nazism, such as Hitler quotes and Holocaust denial. Separately, Mr Musk himself last week was accused of amplifying an anti-Semitic trope on the platform.

Founded in 2004, Media Matters is known for being a stiff critic of conservative news sources, with its CEO hitting back at Musk’s claims. “Far from the free speech advocate he claims to be, Musk is a bully who threatens meritless lawsuits in an attempt to silence reporting that he even confirmed is accurate.”

Last Wednesday, Mr Musk came under fire after he replied to a post accusing Jewish communities of pushing and funding critical race theory aimed at undermining ‘White Americans, calling it the “actual truth”.

Since Musk took over X (formally Twitter) last year, the platform has loosened its rather draconian restrictions on what gets said on the platform, with him making some quite eyebrow-raising remarks for a man in his position.

He has allowed people to peer behind the curtains of power and, indeed, pull said curtains back so others can look. On the other hand, groups like Media Matters for America (MMfA) have been set up to ensure no light gets through those curtains.

Here’s the question you should ask: who are media matters, and how do they hold so much sway in political/public discourse?

Well, the first thing you need to know is they are firmly on the side of the American left. As stated above, they were formed in 2004 by a former conservative journalist, David Brock, who now nails his colours to the Democrat mast.

Very interestingly, when MMfA was first formed, it received “donations” to the tune of $2 million, and according to National Review, additional funding came from and New Democrat Network.

The Homeland Party is grateful to Musk for allowing people the opportunity to “pull the curtain back.”

Included in this article is the Wikipedia link for MMfA; please go and take a look, and once you follow the breadcrumbs, you may very well see why they feel obliged to see Anti-Semitism at every turn.
