âAt risk of stating the obvious, anyone advocating the genocide of *any* group will be suspended from this platform,â Mr. Musk said. âAs I said earlier this week, âdecolonization,â âfrom the river to the seaâ and similar euphemisms necessarily imply genocide. Clear calls for extreme violence are against our terms of service and will result in suspension.â
Mr. Musk previously appeared to agree with an X user who posted antisemitic comments earlier in the week.Â Â
âTo the cowards hiding behind the anonymity of the internet and posting âHitler was rightâ: You got something you want to say?â
Another user responded, âOkay. Jewish [people] have been pushing the exact kind of dialectical hatred against whites that they claim to want people to stop using against them,â the poster wrote.
âYou have said the actual truth,â Mr. Musk responded.
That comment thread generated a harsh response from the White House. Spokesperson Andrew Bates called the posts an âabhorrent promotion of antisemitic and racist hate.â
âWe all have a responsibility to bring people together against hate, and an obligation to speak out against anyone who attacks the dignity of their fellow Americans and compromises the safety of our communities,â Mr. Bates said.Â
