During an interview with Joe Rogan, Elon Musk criticized George Soros, a Democrat super donor and radical left financier, stating that Soros “fundamentally hates humanity” and works to erode civilization.
Musk also expressed concerns about the radical left’s influence and the suppression of conservative voices on platforms like Twitter, noting that Republicans were suppressed at a much higher rate than Democrats.
The Tesla CEO explained, “There was basically oppression of any views that, even I would say, be considered middle-of-the-road. But certainly, anything on the right, and I’m not talking about far-right, I’m just talking mildly right. Republicans were suppressed at 10 times the rate of Democrats.

Adding, “That’s because old Twitter was fundamentally controlled by the far-left. It was, like, completely controlled by the far-left.”
He further commented on his difficulty in reading The New York Times and the errors they make.
Musk’s X social media platform, formerly known as Twitter, has recently removed hundreds of accounts affiliated with the Palestinian Hamas terrorist group.
The CEO of X, Linda Yaccarino, said the company has removed hundreds of Hamas-linked accounts and taken down or labeled tens of thousands of pieces of content since the militant group’s attack on Israel.

“X is proportionately and effectively assessing and addressing identified fake and manipulated content during this constantly evolving and shifting crisis,” Yaccarino said.
“There is no place on X for terrorist organizations or violent extremist groups and we continue to remove such accounts in real time, including proactive efforts,” Yaccarino wrote.
X has taken action to “remove or label tens of thousands of pieces of content,” Yaccarino said.
There are also over 700 unique Community Notes “related to the attacks and unfolding events.” Community Notes is a feature that allows users to add their own fact-checks to posts.
The platform has been “responding promptly” and in a “diligent and objective manner” to takedown requests from law enforcement agencies from around the world. (Trending: NFL Legend Crushes Trans Activists)
Despite these efforts, the European Commission has made a formal, legally binding request for information from Elon Musk’s social media platform X over its handling of hate speech, misinformation and violent terrorist content related to the Israel-Hamas war.
The EU is conducting an investigation under the Digital Services Act to determine whether X is in compliance with the tough new rules meant to keep users safe online and stop the spread of harmful content.
