BLUMENTHAL: "My reaction to Elon Musk's post was absolute abhorrence. His saying that this blatantly anti-Semitic comment was, quote, 'the actual truth' is sickening and chilling. And Elon Musk has turned X, formerly known as Twitter, into a cesspool of hate speech and extremist incitement. And I encourage, in fact, I urge advertisers like IBM, which has done so, to withdraw from X and to send a message to Elon Musk that hate has no place on this powerful megaphone. And as you know, the surge of anti-Semitic, anti-Muslim, white supremacist, anti-Black sentiment on social media has been an incubator, in fact, an accelerant to more than just speech — action that constitutes hate crimes."
