Elon Musk’s New Far-left Twitter Moderation Council Draws Criticism – Including Yoel Roth, Who Called Trump a “Nazi” and “Racist Tangerine”


Elon Musk’s choice to recruit the far-left Twitter moderation council, which includes individuals who labeled President Trump a Nazi and called to be silenced when he was sitting President of the United States, has left many conservatives disappointed and hopeless.

On Monday, Musk praised and recommended following Yoel Roth, the Head of Safety & Integrity at Twitter, for the “most accurate understanding of what’s happening with trust & safety at Twitter.”


Yoel Roth is the Global Head of Safety & Integrity at Twitter. According to the org chart, he leads Twitter’s policy and threat investigation teams responsible for a wide range of security, authenticity, and content issues, including platform manipulation, misinformation, election security, data privacy, and user identity.

According to Heavy, Roth is behind Twitter’s controversial fact-checking initiative that targeted President Donald Trump’s tweets about election fraud.

In the past, Roth has stated that members of the Trump administration are Nazis, called Trump a racist tangerine, compared Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway to Joseph Goebbels, and labeled those who live in “fly over states” as racists.

Elon Musk shared screenshots on Sunday of a conversation between Roth and the law firm that worked for Twitter, Wachtell, which may have withheld information from him and the court. Musk responded to Republican podcaster Liz Wheeler’s claim that Roth “should’ve been the first person fired.”

“We’ve all made some questionable tweets, me more than most, but I want to be clear that I support Yoel. My sense is that he has high integrity, and we are all entitled to our political beliefs,” Musk wrote.

On Tuesday, Yoel Roth posted on his account stating, “We’re staying vigilant against attempts to manipulate conversations about the 2022 US midterms. Read on for an independent analysis of our teams’ work.”

Musk responded that he was talking with far-left civil society leaders about how “Twitter will continue to combat hate & harassment & enforce its election integrity policies.”

The leaders include Jonathan Greenblatt, Yael Eisenstat, Rashad Robinson, Jessica González, Norman Chen, Derrick Johnson, George W. Bush Presidential Center, Ken Hersch, and Sindy Benavides.

Jack Posobiec tweeted that “every member of this group of ‘divergent views’ called for Trump to be censored while he was the sitting President of the United States.”

Twitter personality @catturd and political columnist Benny Johnson have expressed their frustration with Elon Musk’s decision.

Although, Elon Musk agreed that the ‘Twitter safety board should have people from all viewpoints.’
