HOT: Elon Musk said users will be suspended for tweeting "from the river to the sea" in support of Palestine

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Elon Musk announces users will be suspended for tweeting "from the river to the sea" in support of Palestine. 

Musk, who has in the past described himself as a “free speech absolutist” and claimed to be running X according to that principle, took the position that the hotly disputed terms are clear hate speech meant to incite “extreme violence.” He followed up that post with a tweet reading, “At risk of stating the obvious, anyone advocating the genocide of *any* group will be suspended from this platform.”

In fact, not only has X utterly failed to remove genocidal rhetoric during the Israel-Hamas war, but Musk has personally contributed to a surge of antisemitic content. After his Thursday endorsement of a user’s conspiracy theory that Jews are “pushing the exact kind of dialectical hatred against whites that they claim to want people to stop using against them,” the White House condemned his “abhorrent promotion of Antisemitic and racist hate in the strongest terms” on Friday. That incident — and ongoing reports that their sponsored content has routinely been displayed next to Nazi and white nationalist material on X — prompted major advertisers including Apple, Disney, Lionsgate and IBM to cut ties with the platform.

Many organizations and companies responded by suspending their advertising with X, either due to these comments or due to their adverts appearing alongside antisemitic content, including the likes of IBM, Lions Gate Entertainment, and Apple. 

Musk has faced multiple accusations that hate rhetoric and antisemitism have grown significantly on X since he took over the company in 2022, as well as accusations of having using antisemitic tropes himself. Global antisemitism has spiked after war erupted between Israel and Hamas when the terror group carried out a devastating attack that killed some 1,200 people in Israel, and took some 240 hostage.

Elon made the comment Wednesday when a user posted a video that is part of a campaign against antisemitism, depicting a father reprimanding his son for making antisemitic remarks on the internet.

He has accused them of being "ironically the biggest generators of anti-Semitism on this platform!"

He would later announce that X Corp would be suing the ADL for defamation over its comments about antisemitism on X.
