The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) issued a warning against the reinstatements of former President Donald Trump, Infowars founder Alex Jones, and former White House strategist Steve Bannon back onto Twitter, claiming it will “lead to dire consequences.”
In a panicked article written shortly after Musk acquired Twitter on Friday, the ADL claimed Musk’s expected reversal of “hate speech policies and content moderation” signals that the leaders of the Republican populist movement will soon be allowed to return to Twitter.
From the ADL website:
ADL has grave concerns regarding who will be allowed back on Twitter. Foremost among those concerns is the reinstatement of former President Donald Trump, who was permanently banned for violating Twitter’s glorification of violence policy related to the January 6 insurrection. Throughout his presidency, Trump used Twitter to spread hate and incite violence. There is no reason to believe the former president will behave differently should the platform reverse his ban. Trump’s recent posts on Truth Social, a platform he owns, reflect a continuation of his heinous behavior, including making direct threats against American Jews and embracing QAnon.
The anti-First Amendment group goes on to list “other high-profile and dangerous individuals” who may be allowed to return to Twitter, which include David Duke, Nick Fuentes, Alex Jones, Steve Bannon, and Andrew Tate.
“Providing these individuals again with the vast megaphone of Twitter to spread hate and misinformation would lead to dire consequences,” the ADL stated, without elaborating on what those consequences would be.
ADL is doing everything they say it is ‘anti-Semitic’ to say they are doing. Irony, anyone?
