Elon Musk Causes Stir With Passover Tweet
Billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk has caused a huge stir on Twitter with a tweet questioning the connection between the Jewish holiday of Passover and the election of Brandon Johnson as Mayor of Chicago.
The tweet, which was sent out early this morning, read: “Can someone please explain to me why Passover is responsible for Brandon Johnson being elected mayor in Chicago? I’m curious to know.”
The tweet was quickly met with an outpouring of responses from both Jewish and non-Jewish users. Many expressed outrage at Musk’s seeming disregard for Jewish culture and the holiday of Passover.
“I’m appalled that Elon Musk doesn’t understand the significance of Passover,” wrote one user. “It’s a reminder of the oppression and liberation of the Jewish people and how it’s still relevant today.”
Others were quick to point out that Passover is not the reason for Johnson’s election, but rather the hard work of his campaign and the strong support of the community.
“It’s not Passover that elected Brandon Johnson,” wrote another user. “It’s the power of the people and their faith in him that put him in office.”
Meanwhile, some users took the opportunity to make light of the situation, with one user writing, ” Elon Musk asking why Passover is responsible for Chicago’s mayor is like asking why the sun rises in the east. It just does.”
Whatever the reason for Johnson’s election, it’s clear that Elon Musk’s tweet has started an important conversation about the role of religion in politics.
