Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib were barred from visiting Israel, and the New York Times was not pleased. An editorial on Friday had an anti-Israel slant and a whitewash of the anti-Semitic nonprofit co-sponsoring the trip, along with a helpful link to their website. Two lead stories Saturday painted Israel's move as a win for the left-wing anti-Israel movement in both countries: "Israelis concerned about the health of the relationship with the United States worried aloud on Friday that by barring members of Congress at all, let alone because of their political views, the Netanyahu government had gravely jeopardized Israel’s bipartisan support in Washington."
Somehow one just knew this was coming.The virulent anti-Semitism that has been metastasizing through the American Left and the Democratic Party is being given a pass by the Leftist State Media. As Nicholas Fondacaro has noted correctly, the blatant anti-Semitism of Democratic Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashia Tlaib (D-MI), who have been barred from Israel by the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has been covered up by the Big Three networks.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal host Bill Maher called out both anti-Israel liberals and the media for ignoring the deeply embedded anti-Semitism in the Middle East that has thwarted attempts to make a peace agreement between Israel and Palestinian Arabs.
On Wedesday's New Day show, CNN hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota pined for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to call a special session to pass more restrictive gun laws at the same time the two ignored the news that the gun used to kill California police officer Andre Moye was illegally owned by a convicted felon.
In her obituary for retired congressman Paul Findley, Republican from Illinois, New York Times’s Katharine Seelye ignored Findley’s anti-Semitic conspiracies, while bashing Republicans for being overly conservative and in the pocket of the Israel lobby: "Who else had a strong reason to want President Kennedy out? It is interesting-but not surprising-to note that in all the words written and uttered about the Kennedy assassination, Israel's intelligence agency, the Mossad, has never been mentioned.And yet a Mossad motive is obvious."
Former World Series champion and six-time baseball all-star Curt Schilling's talk of running for Congress is drawing "combustible" reactions from hostile media, along with strong support from his pal, President Donald Trump. The former major league pitcher especially incited the rancor of The Washington Post and USA Today.
Appearing on the Monday edition of the Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co., Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell tore into Twitter for being “like two-year-olds” with their attempt to lock Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign account for sharing video of angry, far-left protesters last week outside his home threatening to inflict fatal harm on the Kentucky Republican.
On Saturday's CNN Newsroom, during an interview with former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, CNN host Ana Cabrera failed to inform viewers of some very important facts as she discussed the Colorado Democrat's successes in passing gun control in his home state in 2013. As the CNN host asked the Democratic presidential candidate about the issue of how to get at least some Republicans to go along with such measures, she failed to note that violent crime has increased substantially in Colorado every year since the passage of more gun control in 2013.
Closing out Friday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, host Brooke Baldwin closed with a lengthy, tear-filled commentary tacitly promoting the need for gun control, expressing disgust with anyone who’s not a liberal (like her), and further underlying the liberal media’s penchant for instilling fear in racial minorities and the wider public that they could be mass shooting victims.
On Wednesday's New Day show, CNN was still showing its transparent bias in favor of more restrictions on gun rights as gun control skeptic Congressman Brian Babin was pressed on his views while supporters of gun control were allow to give their prescriptions for more gun control with little challenge.
Gun-grabbing crisis vultures just can't let the latest mass shootings go to waste. “Red flag” laws are now all the rage in the Beltway as the magic pill to prevent homicidal maniacs from wreaking havoc on the nation. Even President Donald Trump has endorsed the idea of preemptively confiscating people's firearms if they are deemed a “threat.” But if you want to know how this American version of China's social credit system would work in practice, let me remind you of how Veterans Affairs recklessly red-flags “disruptive” citizens without due process, transparency or accountability in the name of “safety.”
Less than a day after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was subjected to death threats from protesters outside his home and threatening Twitter hashtags (#MassacreMoscowMitch and #MassacreMitch), two CNN shows downplayed the protesters and one also featured 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bill de Blasio expressing support for one of the hashtags.
