X is almost certainly going to close now
There is simply no way going forward after this, it cannot make advertising money any more. It can only survive as a check writing billionaire’s plaything but Elon won’t spend his own money.
The odds of someone purchasing it are low, although I could see the Chinese buying it to cause mischief.

The origin of the controversy:
"Musk, 52, sparked a firestorm on Wednesday by responding to a man who claimed: 'Jewish communities have been pushing dialectical hatred against whites.'
The billionaire, who has 163 million followers on X, replied: 'You have said the actual truth.'"
This guy comes across as vaguely retarded. At least when it comes to the humanities.

It's true. You don't have to look any further than Jewish-run Hollywood and Broadway to have noticed all of the anti-white (and black superiority) propaganda they've been shoehorning into their films/shows in recent years.
U.S. Jews are very 'woke,' which has come to mean being anti-white. And they're the least patriotic Americans, alongside Asians. They have more allegiance to Israel than the USA.

It needs to die, as soon as possible. It’s full of bigoted right wing freaks. I suspect Musk only wanted it so he could be the big “bro”; a kind of omnipresent liked figured like Tom from Myspace. Unfortunately, it’s simply revealed what an absolute, unlikable, hateful cretin the man is.

Rupert Murdoch ran TheWeekly Standard for years at a loss just to have another rightwing medium. He ran NY Post at a loss for years too until it became profitable.
Musk can probably run Xitter at a loss for a while, just to be a little bitch.
|by Anonymous||reply 38||November 18, 2023 4:12 PM
But what is his goal? Does he actually want to make money? I don't understand.
The easy solution in my eyes is actually the data lounge solution - let everyone read the site but make people pay $1.99 a month if they want to post. Run at a bit of a loss as a hobby, he has the money.

[quote][R27] What a lot of rubbish. You know that Black and Asian people exist? It's perfectly normal and sensible to include them in movies.
I was referring to Hollywood and Broadway in the past decade having developed an aversion to all-white or mostly white films/shows, which far-left liberals (i.e., 'wokes') equate with 'white supremacy.'
But at the same time, pushing a 'black supremacy' agenda via movies/shows, which must always contain a disproportionate amount of black characters (13% of the population but getting 85% coverage), even if it makes no sense to the story or time period.
Furthermore, the black characters, especially the women, are often the smartest and most 'righteous..' Black people are not to be portrayed in any negative light nor be satirized in this current 'woke' era.
But it's been open season on white people/characters.
So, now American Jews who run Hollywood/Broadway are between a rock and a hard place.
The past several years, they have been okay with all of the anti-white/anti-America rhetoric emanating from the liberal entertainment industry, thereby stoking the ire of many white Americans, particularly conservatives.
But now they are up in arms that these same liberals have started expressing anti-Jewish/-Israel sentiments and rhetoric this past fall.
It will be interesting to see how all of this develops. I sense an impending shift/revolution in the industry. As usual, the majority will triumph.

R27/R42 is an anti-Semitic asshole who thinks couching an offense against "the Jews who run Hollywood" as anti-white because they are part of a reparatory movement of inclusion in the arts and the entertainment industry. Is what's being done with casting NOT colorblind? Yes. Are the results ridiculous at times, as we all attempt to move into a non-race/ethnicity-driven world of equity? YES.
Are the Ashkenazi "Jews," who self-identify as "white" anti-white?

Jews don't identify with Northern Europeans, which is what most white Americans are made up of, particularly those in the South and Midwest, two regions (and its white inhabitants) that American Jews despise with a passion.

I wonder if his unlikely friendship with Dave Chappelle is based on their common anti-semitism (Dave is Nation of Islam-adjacent), or if the GOAT of comedy fed these talking points to this fool knowing he’d spew them to the world so that Dave didn’t have to do it himself and get blackballed by “The Jews.” (Dave hinted about his issues with Jews on SNL, but managed not to get cancelled because he’s an amazing tightrope walker). Elon has tried to be coy like his pal, but I think he’s fallen off the rope this time.

This from the NYTimes:
"Jewish Viewers Find a Refuge in Fox News"
"The network’s unflinching support for Israel in its fight against Hamas has put the conservative network in the good graces of many Jews who see other coverage of Israel as biased."
