    Brody wasn’t even in the same state when the June 24 brawl occurred. But his world was turned upside down when far-right X accounts, magnified by Musk, falsely identified him as a member of Rose City Nationalists (and an undercover federal agent) and posted his personal information online.

    Musk amplified the conspiracy theory repeatedly to his more than 180 million followers, suggesting Brody was a fresh-faced federal agent pretending to be a neo-Nazi in a “false flag situation,” a phrase used to suggest a harmful event was deliberately set up to misrepresent a group or person.

    “Looks like one is a college student (who wants to join the govt) and another is maybe an Antifa member, but nonetheless a probable false flag situation,” Musk posted to X after Brody had been falsely identified as a Rose City Nationalists member. The post remains on X.

    Brody said he and his family were forced to flee their home amid the fallout from Musk’s posts. He’s seeking more than $1 million in damages. The next court hearing is scheduled for April 22.

    What a fucking piece of shit.

      Personally I think it’s a sham. He’s got billions upon billions in military contracts, I’m convinced his whole persona is a facade meant to make people think he’s stupid.

      (I don’t believe this 100% its mostly a joke comment than anything)

    “My — what I want to think it’s really about is about you getting a lot of money,” said Musk, who paid $44 billion for Twitter in 2022.

    What you want to think is pretty clear, Lonnie. But what do you really think when you listen to the inner voice that you try to repress? Could it be that you thoughtlessly caused a stranger a lot of emotional distress? Have some more ketamine to make that go away.
