This week, four of the top candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination — Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Julian Castro and Bernie Sanders — gathered at the J Street Conference to explain why the United States ought to pressure the state of Israel to make concessions to terrorists, why the Obama administration was correct to appease the Iranian regime and why American Jews ought to value the opinions of Bernie Sanders over those of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the future of Jewish safety.
In a 60 Minutes interview, Joe Biden attacks Jared Kushner's lack of "credentials" to negotiate Middle East peace, saying he knows "nothing about it." CNN's reaction was essentially to say: you go, Joe! On this morning's New Day, Chris Cillizza twice called Biden's criticism "valid." Even that wasn't enough for Alisyn Camerota, who said: "it’s not only valid. When you hear it coming out of Joe Biden’s mouth, somehow it sounds even more shocking."
More than 30 years after President Ronald Reagan left office, MSNBC contributor Eddie Glaude on Sunday was still blaming him for modern economic problems during a discussion of the Democratic presidential race. On Up with David Gura, as Glaude gushed over Elizabeth Warren's performance in the last debate, he even claimed that Democrats have been "complicit" along with Republicans in implementing Reaganesque economic policy.
Singer and former Disney Channel star Demi Lovato has been the subject of social media backlash lately because her personal and “spiritual” trip to Israel in recent days is not PC enough for woketivists. People gave the pop star so much garbage over photos of her baptism in the Jordan River that she was compelled to apologize.
On Monday, it was reported that inaugural Women’s March co-chairs Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour were being replaced with 16 new board members. The Washington Post had the scoop, and its headline announcing “Women’s March cutting ties with three original board members accused of anti-Semitism” made it sound like the radical left-wing group was finally taking a stand against anti-Semitism within its leadership, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Appearing as a guest on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, New York Times opinion editor Bari Weiss not only complained about the media and her own paper's tendency to pander to what excites the Twittersphere, but she also called out her fellow left-wingers who have been tolerant of anti-Semitism.
During the 3:00 p.m. ET hour on Tuesday, MSNBC anchor Chris Jansing delivered breaking news from the Middle East that terrorists in the Gaza Strip had launched a rocket attack against Israel. The report claimed that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu being rushed offstage during a campaign event made the otherwise failed attack a “very public success.”
Imagine two sitting Republican Congresspeople planned a trip to a foreign country in conjunction with a nongovernmental organization. Imagine that particular NGO had a long history of Jew hatred: It had run a piece on its website quoting anti-Semitic myths about Jews imbibing Christian blood, republished a neo-Nazi article decrying the “Jew-controlled entertainment media” and suggested that “honor” was the proper response to a terrorist who murdered 38 Israelis, including 13 children.
Responding to the President’s latest self-inflicted error Tuesday by questioning the loyalty of Jewish voters to their faith, MSNBC’s Hardball all but memory holed the whole reason the kerfuffle arose to begin with, which was the blatant anti-Semitism from Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
In a scathing takedown of anti-Semitic Congresswomen, Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) during an appearance on Monday’s Special Report, The Federalist publisher Ben Domenech unloaded on the duo for their “disgusting display” at a press conference filled with lies.
An explosive debate broke out on Monday’s edition of Cuomo Prime Time focusing on Israel’s decision to bar two Democratic members Congress in “the Squad” from entry because of their support for BDS. While the debate included the usual talking points about President Trump targeting “the Squad” because of their skin color and religion, the conversation went off the rails when CNN political commentator Angela Rye, addressing Republican Strategist Patrick Griffin, identified “the greatest terrorist threat in our country” as “white men who think like you.”
On Monday’s The Lead, Atlantic writer, CNN political analyst, and Hamas apologist Peter Beinart suffered a meltdown for the ages, losing it while desperately trying to defend Palestinian terrorists and anti-Semitic groups like Miftah against a calm, sober evisceration of his world view by National Review editor-in-chief Rich Lowry. The child-like meltdown grew so hysterical that Beinart screeched about how National Review supports apartheid, segregation, and Israeli terror on Palestinians while denying that Miftah has issues with Jews
