Fans of Tucker could not be happier about Musk suing the Anti-Defamation League

Billionaire Elon Musk is suing the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), and fans of former Fox News host Tucker Carlson couldn’t be any happier.

The reason why is that prior to his departure from Fox News, Carlson had gone to great lengths to expose the ADL and its shady behavior.

Flashback to Dec. 8th, 2022, when the then-“Tucker Carlson Tonight” host ran a segment about the ADL and its notorious boss, Jonathan Greenblatt.


In talking about Greenblatt, he first referenced another identity hustler, MSNBC’s Rev. Al Sharpton.

“For many decades, Al Sharpton made a good living shaking down corporate America for money. There’s a reason his suits cost more than your car. It was pretty effective. Sharpton’s gone mainstream now if you can describe a job at MSNBC that way, but the business model is still there. It’s just been embraced by a paler, less charming version of the old Rev. Al, a former bottled water salesman called Jonathan Greenblatt,” he said.

“Greenblatt runs the Anti-Defamation League, whose century-old reputation he leverages for moral authority and cash. This year alone, Greenblatt has effectively extorted half a million dollars from the Brooklyn Nets and another seven figures from the shoe company Adidas. Send me money or I’ll call you names. But Greenblatt also takes money to attack other people. If you’ve got an enemy, there’s a good chance that with a big enough check, you can pay Jonathan Greenblatt to denounce that person on television. And we’re pretty sure something like that has happened to us,” he added.

Greenblatt has denounced and smeared many people and organizations, including Musk and his social media network, X. It was in response to these smears that Musk announced this week that he would be suing the ADL:

Moreover, Musk has signaled that Carlson is welcome to join his suit.


Not surprisingly, Greenblatt and his ADL are livid over Musk’s decision.

“It is profoundly disturbing that Elon Musk spent the weekend engaging with a highly toxic, antisemitic campaign on his platform — a campaign started by an unrepentant bigot that then was heavily promoted by individuals such as white supremacist Nick Fuentes, Christian nationalist Andrew Torba, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and others. Finally, we saw the campaign manifest in the real world when masked men marched in Florida on Saturday brazenly waving flags adorned with swastikas and chanting ‘Ban the ADL,'” he said in a statement Tuesday.

It’s not clear who the hell Greenblatt is talking about and what any of this has to do with Musk suing him over his incessant smears.

“But to be clear, the real issue is neither ADL nor the threat of a frivolous lawsuit. This urgent matter is the safety of the Jewish people in the face of increasing, intensifying antisemitism. Musk is engaging with and elevating these antisemites at a time when ADL is tracking a surge of bomb threats and swatting attacks of synagogues and Jewish institutions, dramatic levels of antisemitic propaganda being littered throughout Jewish and non-Jewish residential communities, and extremists marching openly through the streets in Nazi gear,” the ADL head continued.

“All of this is happening in a context of the highest number of antisemitic incidents that ADL has tracked in more than 40 years — and just two weeks away from the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. And so, this behavior is not just alarming nor reckless. It is flat out dangerous and deeply irresponsible. We need responsible leaders to lead, to stop inflaming hatred and to step back from the brink before it’s too late,” he added.

Greenblatt also appeared on CNN, where he claimed that he’d observed “grotesque antisemitism on Twitter.” What did he cite as an example? The dissident hashtag #BanTheADL, which isn’t rooted in antisemitism but rather in respect and appreciation for the First Amendment.

“It is the amplification of this hateful slogan, this sort of hashtag campaign, and let me tell you, the people who were promoting it were a number of very bad actors, and when one of the most influential people in the world, the owner of the platform itself, is engaging with some of these actors who are notorious antisemites or conspiracy theorists or other sort of, again, what I would describe as bad actors with very hateful intent, that energizes them. That emboldens them,” he griped.
