Elon Musk Slams Leftist Washington Post Reporter: ‘Contemptible Liar’

Twitter boss Elon Musk has publicly slammed a leftist Washington Post report as a “contemptible liar.”

Musk caught sleazy “journalist” Joseph Menn spreading lies about him and his actions as Twitter’s CEO.

Menn was commenting on a violent leftist who repeatedly champions violence on social media.

However, Menn tried to characterize the leftist as someone “documenting racist and far-right attackers.”

In an article for the Post, Menn wrote that Antifa thug Chad Loder “was banned from Twitter by an order from owner Elon Musk, according to a former employee …”

The Post-Millennial’s editor-at-large, Andy Ngo, called out Menn over the false claims and shady characterization.

Ngo, who has previously testified before Congress as an expert witness on Antifa, blasted Menn, writing, “Why didn’t you mention in your WaPo reporting that Antifa member Chad Loder incited violence, including deadly violence?

“He also celebrated violent crimes when he praised Antifa ‘martyrs,’ including domestic terrorist Willem van Spronsen & gunman Michael Reinoehl,” Ngo added.

“Joseph Menn is a contemptible liar,” Musk fired back in response to Ngo’s tweet.

“Twitter policy has always been to suspend accounts that clearly & repeatedly incite violence.”

After Musk tweeted, Ngo commented further on Loder.

“One of the ways Antifa normalize themselves in the mainstream is through laundering influencers & their ideas through journalists,” Ngo writes.

“WaPo & Intercept present Chad Loder as a ‘researcher’ to mislead the public about his violent extremism & antisemitic views.

@chadloder‘s violent extremism on Twitter included celebrations of Antifa violence against a man who protested the trans sex offender who allegedly exposed an erect penis at Wi Spa.

“He also celebrated violence on black people & routinely posted personal information of targets.”

Menn’s article revolved around former Twitter security chief-turned-whistleblower Peiter Zatko joining security company Rapid7, “the maintainer of Metasploit, an open-source hacking tool that adds new techniques within hours of their disclosure,” Menn noted.

“A co-founder of the company was Chad Loder, now an activist documenting racist and far-right attackers, including some who participated in the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol,” he added.

After Loder’s account was suspended from Twitter, he claimed that he was the victim of an “organized mass reporting campaign” against left-wing Twitter users from a group called Zanting.

“There’s nobody minding the shop anymore,” he said.

“I know everyone that worked on Twitter’s trust and safety team over the years has long gone and the team has been more than decimated.

“It’s maybe 5% of the original staff, so what’s happening is mass-reporting is allowed to succeed because there’s no one double checking whether these reports are valid or not.

“So people are being suspended for silly things or over nothing at all.”
