Elon Musk humiliated BBC reporter James Clayton on Tuesday after he claimed to have seen an increase in "hate speech" and "hateful conduct" on Twitter in the wake of Musk's takeover.
When Musk asked Clayton to cite a single example of "hate speech" he witnessed, Clayton couldn't cite even one tweet and twisted himself into knots trying to justify his ignorance.
From The National Review:
Musk asked Clayton to describe what he considers "hateful content." Clayton offered a definition: "Content that will solicit a reaction. Something that may include something that is slightly racist or slightly sexist. Those kinds of things."The report on increased "hate speech" Clayton intended to cite is from the Institute for Strategic Dialogue in the U.K.
According to Wikipedia, the ISD was founded by the late George Weidenfeld, who described himself as a "lifelong Zionist."
When asked to sketch his loyalties, Weidenfeld told an interviewer in 2014, "My first one is to my family and the Jewish tribe."
The ISD claim in their report that "English-language antisemitic Tweets more than doubled in the period following Musk's takeover."
They found this number by using "a powerful hate speech detection methodology combining over twenty leading machine-learning models" to find "natural language processing classifiers trained to identify antisemitic content in line with the IHRA [International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance] definition [of anti-Semitism], allowing us to identify messages at scale which can plausibly be categorised as hate speech."
The IHRA's definition of "anti-Semitism" is comically broad -- is entirely self-serving -- and pretty much classifies all criticism of Israel and Jews as "anti-Semitism."
Had Clayton provided an example, it would have been lifted straight out of the ISD's report which claims that talk about "noticing things" and "spotting patterns" is "antisemitic."
The report also claims criticism of Zionism and George Soros is "antisemitic."
This is what the BBC, the ISD and the ADL are all demanding Musk censor.
Noticing things and spotting patterns is the new "hate speech."
