With Antisemitic Tweet Musk Reveals Truth

Source: CNN

New York
CNN
--
Elon Musk has publicly endorsed an antisemitic conspiracy theory popular among White supremacists: that Jewish communities push "hatred against Whites."

That kind of overt thumbs up to an antisemitic post shocked even some of Musk's critics, who have long called him out for using racist or otherwise bigoted dog whistles on Twitter, now known as X. It was the multibillionaire's most explicit public statement yet endorsing anti-Jewish views.

ICYMI: Musk was responding to a post Wednesday that said Jewish communities "have been pushing the exact kind of dialectical hatred against whites that they claim to want people to stop using against them." The post also referenced "hordes of minorities" flooding Western countries, a popular antisemitic conspiracy theory.

It's the kind of post you can find easily on X these days, and likely would have gone unnoticed had Musk, with more than 160 million followers, not re-shared the post with the comment: "You have said the actual truth."

Now we all know what Musk is all about. Feature story at CNN at 12:43 AM Central Time. (1:43 AM East Coast Time)
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

He sold his stock in Tesla..(I read this somewhere) and that company will become worthless.
What does one say about antisemitism? In 2023?... Hard to believe, and Musk like Trump doesn't
know to keep his mouth shut.

There is something else totally amazing about using the internet computers to find information.....MAPS!!!!

IF you like maps..(.like me)...then the internet computers have more maps of places you only dreamed of.
When I was a kid almost 68 years ago, our family would go on trips to places all over the country. We went on trips
from Chicago to Los Angeles, Yellowstone Park, Maine, New York City Florida, Wisconsin, (we had family near Milwaukee}
and Michigan and Canada.
One of the things that we did as we prepared to go on a trip was to get road maps. Each one
of 3 children had a map. (a road map that was given away for free at gas stations). Some were good and recent, and
others were old and not complete. It didn't matter because each of us had a map, as did my Dad who did the driving.

.......NOW....THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF MAPS ON THE COMPUTER/INTERNET.............
.......MAPS OF EVERY PLACE IN THE WORLD.........YOU LIKE PARIS FRANCE...YOU CAN GET A FREE MAP OF PARIS...

........... I WANT TO GO TO ALSAKA SOME DAY...A FEW DAYS AGO, I SEARCHED FOR AND FOUND A MAP OF ALL ALASKA'S
CITIES AND RURALAREAS. IF YOU GOT A PRINTER THAT WORKS. (MINE DOESN'T WORK) THEN
YOU HAVE AN INSTANT MAP TO KEEP FOR USE WHENEVER....MAPS OF EVERYWHERE. Fairbanks Alaska.?

SO, YOU ARE GOING TO YELLOWSTONE PARK, AND YOU WANT A MAP........SO PRINT IT UP...YOU CAN CARRY A HAND
HELD COMPUTER WITH YOU, AND THEN YOU DON'T NEED TO PRINT IT UP. (THOSE ARE TOO SMALL FOR ME)

I also like "TRAINS".........GUESS WHAT? There are TRAIN MAPS ON THE INTERNET TOO...
...MAPS OF LAKES AND STREAMS FOR BOATS...ALSO MAPS FOR PLANES ON THE INTERNET.

I need to add one more thing...Sorry for all the capital letters, and hard to read small letters.
I need a new computer, and, I haven't got it yet. (with a NEW PRINTER TOO)

Donald Trump using a ...."Direct Quote from Adolph Hitler" is the end of Trump..

(Trump doesn't have a clue....says Stu.)............

When it gets around that Donald Trump Used one of Adolph Hitler's ideas, (his direct words)....Trump will
destroy himself....

.Of course, that will take a lot of time to get around, but using a HITLER QUOTE...IS A MISTAKE
IN MY OPINION... TOTAL MISTAKE::


(and in my opinion, Trump will be asked why he used a Hitler quote....and he cannot answer that one!)

YES......AT LINK BELOW:
