Elon Musk must not have gotten the memo that any criticism of left-wing moneyman George Soros is automatically deemed antisemitism — Soros and his family, who are Jewish, had an unusual experience surviving the holocaust during World War Two — the fact-checkers are quick to note that Soros did not aid the Nazis or round up any Jewish people.
Taking to Twitter on Monday, Musk wrote, “Soros reminds me of Magneto.”
Magneto is a powerful Marvel Comics villain commonly associated with the X-Men, a mutant among a fictional subspecies of humanity born with superhuman abilities.
Soros plays a central role in the ever-expanding number of criminal-friendly prosecutors in America, often backing either directly or indirectly progressive ideologues quick to downgrade charges against suspects under the banner of equity, if not drop them altogether — Soros has reportedly spent at least $40 million helping elect woke DAs like Alvin Bragg in New York City.
Right on cue, The Washington Post played the antisemitism card:
Elon Musk, who has overseen a rise in antisemitism and other hate speech on Twitter, made a series of attacks on George Soros, tweeting the Jewish-born investor and liberal philanthropist hates humanity and “wants to erode the very fabric of civilization.” https://t.co/wIg98bVGmn

Brian Krassenstein, a radical left Kool-Aid drinker who fancies himself an investigative journalist, responded to Musk with the prescribed George Soros talking points.
“Magneto’s experiences during the Holocaust as a survivor shaped his perspective as well as his depth and empathy. Soro, also a Holocaust survivor, get’s attacked nonstop for his good intentions which some Americans think are bad merely because they disagree with this political affiliations,” he tweeted.
Fun fact: Magneto’s experiences during the Holocaust as a survivor shaped his perspective as well as his depth and empathy. Soro, also a Holocaust survivor, get’s attacked nonstop for his good intentions which some Americans think are bad merely because they disagree with this…

Musk opted to feed the troll, serving up a boost of oxygen in disputing Krassenstein’s assessment.
“You assume they are good intentions. They are not. He wants to erode the very fabric of civilization. Soros hates humanity,” the Tesla CEO tweeted.

Krassenstein questioned Musk’s take, citing Soros’ Open Society Foundations as evidence that the business magnate loves humanity.
“What basis do you have to make these claims? The Open Society Foundations has given away well over $30B to push to advance justice, education, public health and independent media,” he tweeted, essentially regurgitating the organization’s mission statement. “Some of these things are things you also support, rightfully so. There is a lot of misinformation out there about Soros. He’s certainly not perfect but to claim he ‘hates humanity’ baffles me.”
To be clear, Soros is a strong proponent of failed progressive policies that often end up doing far more harm than good. Racially divisive social justice programs, open borders, ending the use of fossil fuels are just a few of these policies.
Open Secrets noted that Soros was the “top individual super PAC donor for the 2022 midterm election,” having contributed at least $126 million to liberal super PACS in the last election cycle. His son, Alex, has visited the Biden White House at least 14 times since October 2021 and works to further his father’s support for the Democratic Party, according to Fox News.
Matt Palumbo, author of The Man Behind the Curtain: Inside the Secret Network of George Soros, called attention to the aforementioned $40 million in a New York Post op-ed that detailed where this money went.
“George Soros is the most dangerous man in America,” Palumbo wrote. “The investor is intent on remaking the country to his liberal image, from our foreign policy priorities to undermining our criminal justice system.”
Joe Rogan likened Soros to an evil villain in a Batman movie earlier this year.
“I had a conversation with the governor of Texas about him, with Greg Abbott, where he was explaining to me what George Soros does, and it’s f—king terrifying that he donates money to a very progressive, very leftist — whether it’s a DA or whatever politician, and then funds someone who is even further left than them to go against them,” Rogan said. “He just keeps moving it along, so he’s playing like a global game and that he enjoys doing it.”
“That’s what’s scary, is that it seems like he funds corrosion,” he added, of Soros’ quest to change society. “It’s like he wants these cities to fall apart, he wants crime to flourish, it’s almost like he’s an evil person in a Batman movie.”

Here’s a sampling of responses to the story as seen on Twitter:
Exactly. His intentions aren’t good…and even if they were his results are disastrous. He spends billions to upend western democracies, and funds chaos and mayhem in the streets of our cities. At least Magneto had a little good streak every now and again.

Judging from Soros’ actions alone, this is the correct assessment. Soros was chiefly responsible for the destabilization of the Asian financial market in 1998 through currency speculation, and funds numerous NGOs who propagate wide-scale instability in Europe and Eastern Europe.

This is an amazing moment in Twitter history. I am glad I have a front row seat. Elon is correct and is one of a handful of people to actually know for sure what he is talking about. Time will tell how this all shakes out, but I pray that Elon is fully red pilled (or even black…

Soros hates the Constitution, norms of decency, Israel, etc.., but it’s not because he’s a “Jewish-born investor.” And I doubt anyone really buys this transparently political nonsense. https://t.co/KeTVNiQIJ6 https://t.co/Xdus3zrJYU
