MSNBC host Chris Hayes was apparently playing the role of an apologist for anti-Semitic Democrats Tuesday as he danced around the facts and defended Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN). Hr declared “Republicans are now on day two of their latest sustained round of bad faith attacks against Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib,” while setting up his interview with Omar.
New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg handled the latest disturbing anti-Israel outburst from a controversial Democratic freshmen representative...by rushing to Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s defense in Tuesday’s edition under a headline that reduced the controversy to a partisan squabble: “A ‘Calming Feeling,’ a Furor and a New Front in the War Over Anti-Semitism.” Tlaib made a bizarre and historically fraudulent comment on Jews fleeing persecution and Palestinians supposedly giving them refuge after the Holocaust. The paper’s response fits the media pattern. When a Democrat says something offensive or controversial, the media reacts not to the actual Democratic statement, but how the Republicans reacted to it, “pouncing” or otherwise.
Big Tech always preaches about treating people equally, but they never do. Funny how their “algorithms” never seem to suspend liberals’ accounts. The religion of Inclusion is a fraud. As I write this, my organization’s Twitter account (@LifeHasPurpose) has been suspended for 15 days for violating their cardinal rule—don’t tweet the truth.
Snopes.com doubled down on two of their regular themes on Thursday: defending Rep. Ilhan Omar and attacking the Christian satire site The Babylon Bee. Snopes insisted no one would be able to figure out Omar didn't say "If Israel is so innocent, they why do they inisist on being Jews?"
Meghan McCain says conservative things on television -- especially calling out the Left for anti-Semitism, saying the Democrats may be echoing Britain's Labour Party soon -- and so now she's getting thrown under the bus. On NBC's Late Night, Seth Meyers interviewed McCain, and tried to shame her televised remarks taking on radical Rep. Ilhan Omar. Criticizing Omar was "unfair" and even endangering her safety.
The View co-host Meghan McCain had a tense exchange with Late Night host Seth Meyers Tuesday night, after the liberal host repeatedly berated McCain for criticizing Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar. As Meyers couldn’t get McCain to admit she had said anything wrong, she turned the tables on the host by calling out his liberal bias.
The media has chosen, so far at least, to ignore more anti-American comments from U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN). In an interview May 1, Omar attacked the U.S. for being the reason why its citizens were starving and getting mowed down in the street by its socialist government regime. Her absurd and anti-patriotic comments are just the latest she’s made attacking the country she’s supposed to be serving, and ABC, NBC and CBS continued to ignore them on their Thursday morning shows, today.
New York Times reporter John Eligon filed an aggrieved defense (disguised as a news story) of Rep. Ilhan Omar from Kansas City, who’s been widely accused of anti-Semitism: “American Muslims View Omar’s Controversies, and the Fallout, With Unease.” The online headline was even more slanted: “Unchecked ‘Hate’ Toward Rep. Ilhan Omar Has American Muslims Shuddering.” Eligon previously went soft on the racist, sexist Black Israelites, after the rabble-rousers made it into the news cycle after the verbal assaults on school teens during the infamous Lincoln Memorial saga. Eligon piece on Omar was along the same rough lines of defending the indefensible:
The liberal media gave Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar a pass yet again this week after she was criticized for making more offensive, unpatriotic comments. In a resurfaced 2017 tweet that went viral Monday, Omar attacked American troops who died in the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu (told in the book/movie “Black Hawk Down,”) as killers. One of the few liberal media outlets to actually talk about the backlash Omar received was Newsweek, and they only did so to defend her outrageous comments.
While many in the Democratic Party were fine defending anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN), on Wednesday we learned there were some that reject her and her money. According to reports and campaign finance filings, at least two congressional Democrats had either rejected contributions from Omar or refunded her the money. This bucking of the party’s normalization of anti-Semitism sadly went unreported during the evening news programs of ABC, CBS, and NBC.
Accusing the president of “trying to get” someone killed is pretty over the top. But Vox’s David Roberts isn’t exactly known for keeping his mouth shut.
Unlike Washington Post "Fact Checker" Glenn Kessler, PolitiFact cited Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) as "False" on Monday for claiming the Council for Islamic-American Relations (CAIR) was "founded after 9/11"....at a fundraiser for CAIR-Los Angeles. They also properly tagged Omar as "False" in a "Share the Facts" item for online distribution, unlike the Post.
