In a rare moment of truth-telling on CNN Sunday, New York Times Opinion staff writer and editor Bari Weiss openly admitted to the Reliable Sources panel that the media was purposely ignoring the blatant anti-Semitism espoused by Democratic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (MN) and Rashida Tlaib (MI) because of President Trump.
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.
MSNBC anchor and correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin joined MSNBC Live host Ali Velshi on Friday to chat about Israel's decision to Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar into the country and Tlaib turning down a humanitarian exception to visit her grandmother. Throughout the segment, Mohyeldin made multiple eyebrow-raising statements including calling Bernie Sanders a centrist on the issue and insisting that those who support the BDS movement simply have different tactics for achieving peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
Thursday’s Hardball joined the latest liberal media attempt to defend the anti-Semitism of Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) amidst the decision to bar the two from Israel. In the show’s A-block, MSNBC host Chris Matthews and his crew of minions asserted that the decision by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Donald Trump was not only “autocratic,” but “racial,” “un-American,” and a sign of weakness.
CNN's John King began his Inside Politics program on Thursday by lamenting Israel's refusal to admit leftist Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar as "unprecedented" and contrary to democratic ideals.
Citing an itinerary that proved they were out to “deny Israel’s legitimacy”, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Thursday that anti-Semitic U.S. Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashia Tlaib (D-MI) were barred from entering the country. Of course, the liberal media had an absolute meltdown with the flagship evening programs of ABC, CBS, and NBC rushing to the Congresswomen’s defense, while covering up their deep-seated anti-Semitic worldviews.
On Thursday, news broke that Israel would block Democratic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from visiting the country due to their calls for a boycott of the Jewish state. In response, MSNBC thought it was important to provide viewers with a supposed “fact check” claiming that the far-left lawmakers, who both have a history of anti-Semitism, didn’t “hate” Israel.
Few pundits know the media better than Rush Limbaugh. The radio titan skewers the press’ liberal bias from his talk show perch. Limbaugh can predict media patterns with frightening accuracy. He did it again this week, mocking how reporters looked away as he gave millions to charity. Literally. At the same time most media outlets ignored some good news for No Safe Spaces, the Adam Carolla/Dennis Prager feature heading our way this fall.
After complaining that Democrats somehow didn't attack President Trump enough in their debates, Colbert turned to Trump's rally in Cincinnati in a segment called "Chopper Talk," where they made Trump bald for comedic effect. Colbert enjoyed how reporters kept pressing (and failing) to make Trump promise to stop any "Send Her Back" chants about Ilhan Omar, who the Democrats deeply adore, despite the special pleading for ISIS recruits and the anti-Semitism.
It’s not easy being the most conservative pundit on a liberal program like The View, which airs weekdays on ABC. Just ask Meghan McCain -- daughter of late Arizona Senator John McCain -- who’s been on the show for nearly two years and has clashed regularly with her liberal co-hosts, especially Joy Behar. In an interview for Elle magazine, she claimed: "I feel like I'm controversial. It's a very liberal audience in the studio, and they're very vocal."
On Sunday, New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters found himself deeply disturbed by what he hinted was racist criticism of four new liberal congresswomen. The four left-wing Democrats known as “The Squad” have replaced Nancy Pelosi had been replaced as a conservative enemy: "After barely eight months in office, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez and three other progressive women of color have reached a level of notoriety that is virtually unheard-of for freshman House members, largely thanks to the kind of relentless conservative fire usually trained on far more senior Democrats....attacks on the congresswomen...show how broadly accepted Mr. Trump’s racial and cultural instigations have become in the Republican Party."
