(JNS) — The sudden shift of the Anti-Defamation League’s leader from condemning the world’s wealthiest man for boosting an antisemitic “Great Replacement” conspiracy theory to praising his vow to ban the antisemitic phrases “from the river to the sea” and “decolonization” on the X social-media platform has caused consternation among internal leadership.

On Nov. 17, Jonathan Greenblatt, the ADL’s CEO and national director, called plans to make the use of the anti-Israel terms a suspendable offense “an important and welcome move by Elon Musk. I appreciate this leadership in fighting hate.”

Advisory board members Eli Pariser and Peter Fox talked to Rolling Stone about their concerns with that statement.

Pariser said that “censorship of these phrases will not reduce antisemitism. Especially while Musk himself, one of the most popular users on the platform, continues to engage with and boost it.”

He vowed to resign from the board if Greenblatt did not correct his mistake and change course.

The Great Replacement theory simply says that the people in power are replacing white citizens with foreigners to change the demographics of the country. It is not anti-Semitic, no matter what the frauds at the ADL say, and its not a conspiracy theory. Indeed, as Biden illegally allows in millions of foreigners, we are seeing it happen in real time. Many Democrats and liberal pundits have favorably voiced their support, explicitly approving how the demographics are changing because of lax immigration policy, with the expectation that this will bring them more power. Institutions like the ADL and the JNS regularly promote anti-white hatred and racism, so its no surprise that they claim its an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory. Much to Musk’s credit, he’s not infected by the woke virus.
