It’s admirable if Musk is so true to his beliefs and morals that he’s willing to tell advertisers to go f*** themselves if they don’t like how his X platform is perceived. I’d more admire advertisers who respond in kind and say, “Elon, back at you.”
The furor over Elon Musk’s implicit antisemitic comment that Jews promote white hatred is driven by the media’s dislike of the technology entrepreneur and not a genuine concern about growing and pervasive Jew hatred.
To understand why GM and Ford have failed so miserably adopting to the EV world, appreciating the personalities and business approaches of Tesla co-founder JB Straubel and Rivian founder RJ Scaringe is a good starting point.
After Israel conducted its daring 1976 raid to rescue Jewish hostages held by Palestinian terrorists at Uganda’s Entebbe airport, the rabbi of my family’s Toronto synagogue warned that one day Israel might need to send troops to rescue Canadian Jews at the city’s airport.
