Elon Musk on Monday blew the lid off the Anti-Defamation League's behind-the-scenes pressure campaigns, revealing that the pro-Israel lobbying group uses advertiser boycotts to push Twitter/X to "secretly suspend or shadowban any account they don't like."
"Advertisers avoid controversy, so all that is needed for ADL to crush our US & European ad revenue is to make unfounded accusations," Musk said Monday night on Twitter/X. "They have much less power in Asia, so our ad revenue there is still strong."
"This 'controversy' causes advertisers to 'pause', but that pause is permanent until ADL gives the green light, which they will not do without us agreeing to secretly suspend or shadowban any account they don't like," he revealed. "That is the relationship they've had with X/Twitter for many years. Presumably, they have that with all western search or social media orgs."
Musk on Monday evening said he's likely going to sue the ADL for $22 billion in damages he says were caused by their advertiser boycotts. He also said he will start releasing the details of their shadowy pressure campaigns in the coming days and weeks.
The ADL's tortious interference with Musk's businesses appear to be downright criminal but so far not a single congressman has come out against the ADL in support of Musk.
As I reported yesterday, the Israeli government came out in support of the ADL on Monday to condemn their critics as Jew-hating conspiracy theorists and white supremacists.
Meanwhile, suspected Israeli intelligence agents are getting exposed for trying to influence the anti-ADL campaign on Twitter/X.
Elon Musk's father Errol told The Sun in an article published Monday that he fears his son could be assassinated for going up against powerful forces in the US government.
"Errol exclusively told The U.S. Sun that both he and Elon are worried about what could happen to him," The Sun reported:
Reacting to a recent New Yorker piece by journalist Ronan Farrow titled "Elon Musk's Shadow Rule," Errol said: "It's a hit job, a shadow government-sponsored opening salvo on Elon.The ADL was accused in the past of being involved in the Jewish Defense League's firebombing assassination of Alex Odeh at his office in Santa Ana, California. Odeh was a Palestinian-American who founded his own ADL-like group he dubbed the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) to fight against the ADL's agenda.
As Israel-based journalist David Sheen reported in 2020:
[Odeh's] activism made the ADC enemies of the [JDL-backed] Kahanists, but also of the pro-Israel lobby group AIPAC, and of another powerful group that the ADC once saw as their Jewish corollary: the Anti-Defamation League. For a decade, the ADL had published reports on Arab-American organizations, calling them a "propaganda apparatus" and accusing them of being either "PLO fronts" or "part of the Arab master plan".These days, the head of the FBI literally writes "love letters" to the ADL.
Musk is going up against extremely powerful forces and he's going to need all of our support and backing.
