Musk is not an anti-Semite. Neither is Trump. Neither are most of the other conservatives who have been falsely accused of antisemitism by lefty organisations in America and Britain since 2016.
These claims that major figures on the right are antisemites is a transparent dodge aimed a diverting attention from the obvious fact that the explosion of antisemitism in America, Britain, and other Western countries is taking place primarily on the progressive Left – and that this explosion of antisemitism is being driven by the same alliance of ‘anti-racists’ that have been trying since 2016 to brand most conservatives and Christians as ‘racists’.
Yes, there is genuine hostility to Jews in certain circles on the Right, both among self-professed Christians and among anti-Christian ‘neo-pagans’.
But the antisemitic Right still has only a tiny fraction of the real public presence and political influence that is wielded by the antisemitic Left and its close allies, the Muslim supremacist organisations in the West.
It is the antisemitic Left that is flooding the campuses and the streets and inciting to violence throughout the West. Nothing remotely on this scale has been organised by antisemitic elements on the right in the decades.
I say this as someone who follows developments on the right with great care, and who knows much more about what is and isn’t happening on the right than most of the professional ‘experts’ on the subject.
Anyone who is trying to pin ‘antisemitism’ on Musk or Trump or any other major conservative figure right now is playing the role of a ‘useful idiot’ of the antisemitic progressive Left.
If you actually want to see antisemitism defeated in America, Britain, and other Western countries, let’s see you direct your fire at the actual source of the danger and violence right now – which is two orders of magnitude greater on the Left than it is on the Right.
