Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter/X, expressed support for the viral #BanTheADL campaign, questioning why a lobbying group for a foreign power, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), has influence over what Americans can say on social media. Musk was critical of the ADL’s efforts to limit free speech on his platform, stating that they had tried vigorously to strangle X/Twitter’s promise of being a platform for free expression.

Irish nationalist Keith Woods raised concerns on Twitter about the ADL’s influence, mainly after Musk took control of Twitter. Woods claimed that the ADL was actively working to undermine Musk’s commitment to free speech and even suggested that Twitter was on the verge of demise due to its involvement. This led to the hashtag #BanTheADL gaining traction, with many questioning why the ADL and similar groups have the authority to threaten and pressure social media companies.

Musk openly acknowledged the ADL’s efforts, affirming their attempts to restrict X/Twitter’s commitment to free speech. He even “liked” two tweets from Woods that called for banning the ADL. Additionally, Musk faces pressure from the ADL’s allies, such as Merrick Garland at the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Gary Gensler at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), who are reportedly threatening him with lawsuits, seen by many as a proxy war against Musk for not complying with their demands.

The situation has raised concerns about the undue influence of lobbying groups and government agencies over social media platforms, particularly in the context of free speech. Critics argue that this state of affairs persists due to conservative reluctance to address the issue. The situation remains contentious and raises questions about the balance between free expression and external pressures on social media platforms.
