(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- A Twitter Blue Check Leftist, economist David Rothschild, decided to pick a fight with Tesla CEO Elon Musk after Musk tweeted that, for the first time in his life, he would be voting Republican in November’s election.
On Wednesday, Musk announced on Twitter that he voted Democrat before because he believed the Democrats were “the kindness party.” But now, Musk explained, the Democrats “have become the party of division & hate,” adding that he can no longer support them “and will vote Republican.”
And because Elon Musk knows how things shake out, he added, “Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold…”
Enter David Rothschild to prove Elon Musk right.
Rothschild sarcastically replied that Musk is the “rich son of an emerald mine owner who grew up in apartheid South Africa” who thinks he is “the real victim in our society.” Rothschild then closed his tweet with a snotty “#ThoughtsAndPrayers.”
Immediately, Twitter users descended on Rothschild, linking his last name to the infamous billionaire banking family and calling out his hypocrisy in attacking Musk for being rich.
David Rothschild countered that he isn’t a member of the wealthy Rothschild family.
And had he stopped there, it would have been the perfect response.
But he didn’t.
Instead, Rothschild claimed that linking him to the famous banking family was an “anti-Semitic trope.”
People mistakenly thinking that David Rothschild is part of a wealthy dynasty is not anti-Semitic. But Rothschild needed to make himself the “real victim” here.
