Elon Musk to sue George Soros backed NGOs, responds to claims of Open Society Foundations Affiliates promoting ‘censorship agenda’

In a post shared on the X platform (previously known as Twitter) this Wednesday, the billionaire American entrepreneur responded to an article penned by journalist Ben Scallan. The article highlighted that NGOs supported by the Open Society Foundations, an organization established by Soros, are promoting a “censorship agenda” in Ireland and Scotland. This agenda allegedly involves actions like police searches of homes and personal electronic devices.

Musk, who previously identified as a strong supporter of free speech, had previously taken a swipe at Soros in May. During that time, he likened the billionaire, who originally hails from Hungary, to the comic book character Magneto – a supervillain mutant from Marvel Comics‘ X-Men series. It’s worth noting that both Soros and the fictional character Magneto share a history as survivors of the Holocaust, reported.

“Soros hates humanity,“ Musk said at the time, adding that he “wants to erode the very fabric of civilization.” These remarks by Musk came to light when it was revealed that Soros, known for his liberal views, had sold approximately 132,000 shares of Tesla, according to

Examining claims by Scallan: Irish leaders allege surge in hate crimes, citing 29% increase in 2022

In his article, Scallan asserted that Irish leaders, including Justice Minister Helen McEntee, have claimed that instances of hate-based crimes are becoming more frequent in Ireland. They point out a documented rise of 29 percent in reported hate crimes in 2022 compared to the previous year.

However, Scallan presents a differing perspective, The Epoch Times reported. He argues that just because the number of reported hate-related incidents has gone up doesn’t necessarily mean there has been a genuine increase in hate crimes. This is partly due to the fact that the criteria for categorizing something as a hate offense are relatively lenient, often requiring minimal evidence beyond a person’s assertion.

He further elaborated that the police and government in Ireland have been actively encouraging individuals to report hate-related incidents for a considerable period, with the police setting a target to amplify the count of reported hate crimes. This approach might have contributed to the observed uptick in reported instances of hate-based offenses.
