OpenAI CEO Sam Altman on Thursday said he had come to the realization that American left-wing antisemitism is far worse than he had previously thought.
“[F]or a long time i said that antisemitism, particularly on the american left, was not as bad as people claimed,” Altman posted on X. “[I]’d like to just state that i was totally wrong. i still don’t understand it, really. or know what to do about it. but it is so fucked.”
Altman, who is Jewish, is a major Democratic donor, giving over $1 million almost exclusively to Democrats, including to President Joe Biden, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) data. OpenAI is behind the popular artificial intelligence program ChatGPT, which has displayed a left-wing bias in many of its answers to political and cultural prompts, the Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported.

Many Jewish liberals have felt betrayed by their friends on the left who have backed antisemitic ideas since the Oct. 7 terrorist attacks carried out by Hamas, The New York Times reported in October. Rabbis, Jewish political leaders and Jewish voters felt abandoned by their political party and expressed shock.
Altman gave $200,000 to the Biden Victory Fund and $41,300 to the Democratic National Committee on June 14, according to FEC data. Altman also contributed $250,000 to Senate Majority PAC in 2018 and another $250,000 in 2020.
ChatGPT often expresses left-leaning positions, including that scientific evidence does not back up the existence of significant differences between cisgender and transgender women, a DCNF review found.
OpenAI did not immediately respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.
