With his tweet about the Bronny James vaccine, Elon Musk continues to expose his dangerous nature.

Elon Musk is risky for a number of reasons. The list is extensive.

He published a deplorable conspiracy idea in May about a mass shooter in Allen, Texas. On Twitter, he said that George Soros, who is frequently the focus of right-wingers and white nationalists, wanted to "erode the very fabric of civilization" and "hates humanity." He posted a conspiracy theory about the assault on Paul Pelosi on Twitter that is anti-LGBTQ. Over 1,200 tweets and retweets disseminated antisemitism in the first 24 hours after Musk bought Twitter last year, according to the Anti-Defamation League. The Washington Post said that after he assumed control of the website, the N-word was used 500% more often. I cannot say whether Musk is racist, but some racists believe he is.

Jonathan Greenblatt, director of the ADL, tweeted that "Soros is frequently held up by the far-right, using antisemitic tropes, as the source of the world's problems." Elon Musk feeding this segment by comparing Soros to a Jewish supervillain and saying he "hates humanity" is not only distressing, it's dangerous because it will inspire extremists who have already created anti-Jewish conspiracies and attempted to harm Soros and Jewish communities.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., another dangerous anti-vaxxer who originally claimed that COVID somehow saved Ashkenazi Jews and persons of Chinese descent, has also received a massive platform thanks to Musk. Which is one of the silliest things ever said when you really, really, really think about it.

The number of terrible and risky things that Musk has stated or supported is endless.

But there is one recent action of his that stands out as exceptionally cruel, conspiratorial, and repulsive, and that is the remarks he made in the wake of Bronny James' cardiac arrest.

Musk didn't show his support for the James family in a tweet (or X, or whatever the heck it's called these days) as a decent person would. like many others did. He lacked compassion. Instead, Musk stated, "We cannot ascribe everything to the vaccine, but, by the same token, we cannot ascribe nothing." "Myocarditis is a known side-effect" of the COVID-19 vaccine, he continued.

Bronny James

James was admitted to the hospital on Monday when the University of Southern California was in session. The family reported that he was treated by USC's medical and athletic staff. You can only imagine how concerned the family was about their son. Certainly, a civilized person would. Instead, Musk continued his investigation into conspiracies and risky behavior by using James' potentially life-threatening circumstance as justification.

Musk's own tweet contained a fact-check, which was eventually taken down. According to the Yale School of Medicine, it is extremely unlikely to get myocarditis after receiving a vaccine.

James wasn't the only one who was ruthlessly used by Musk. Without providing any supporting evidence, Fox News commentator Martha MacCallum said that James had "myocarditis" and that it was "a side effect of the vaccine."

Laura Ingraham, a Fox personality, too dove into the muck. Elon Musk received criticism today for speculating that Bronny's accident might have been related to the COVID shot, she added. Now, he might be wholly mistaken. It's conjecture. However, we are aware that myocarditis is a side effect of the vaccine, and considering all the so-called experts missed during COVID, we shouldn't judge anyone for raising concerns.

We're only asking questions, man, listen.

Musk wasn't the only one to circulate false information about James, but he is the most influential conspirator to get involved in this issue.

One of the risks that Musk poses is this. He propagates falsehoods to his hundreds of millions of followers, is either unaware of the truth or doesn't care, and supports conspiratorial trolls.

He is more than that, too. You lower the bar for what cruelty means when you behave cruelly all the time like he does. Unbelievably, people who view Musk as a leader will imitate him.

Musk and his supporters indulge in the cruelty, disinformation, and hatred that they all not only spread but also uphold. like a machine that maintains the flow of a sewer.

James being used by Musk to promote propaganda isn't shocking, but it is nonetheless upsetting and dangerous, and it shows where our society is at. There are some of us who don't perceive James as a fellow human being deserving of compassion and basic respect. James was initially intended to be a tool for Musk to distribute false information.

Elon Musk is dangerous for a variety of reasons. It's a lengthy list.

Simply include this in the list.
