You wouldn’t know it from the so-called mainstream media, but the far-left Women’s March on Washington is “steeped in controversy” and even the Democratic National Committee has withdrawn its support. After all three networks skipped it Tuesday night, ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday actually covered the “cloud of controversy” regarding the march’s connection to anti-Semitism.
On Tuesday's Deadline: White House, MSNBC host and former Republican Nicolle Wallace was in denial about the existence of racism within her new home on the left as she ridiculously claimed that "there isn't a strain of racism on the left." Her comments came during a discussion of Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King's flirtations with white nationalists that have drawn condemnation from fellow Republicans.
View co-host Meghan McCain held her liberal guest’s feet to the fire after the latter repeatedly dodged then flat-out refused to condemn vile, anti-Semitic remarks made by her friend, Louis Farrakhan. Tamika D. Mallory appeared on the show Monday with co-chair of the march, Bob Bland, to address that controversy as well as the claims by pro-life women that they were excluded from the march.
Even though Marc Lamont Hill is no longer a commentator for CNN, the anti-semitic liberal continues to use any means at his disposal as a tenured professor at Temple University in Philadelphia to slam Israel. His most recent complaints came on Friday, when he hammered the Jewish nation for supposedly encouraging police violence against blacks in the United States. In addition, he continued to reject calls to denounce Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
While Al Sharpton is certainly no stranger to controversy, his latest ploy has raised eyebrows across the political spectrum. Before the liberal activist steps down as president of the National Action Network next year, he has apparently found a new way to make money off the charity he founded in 1991: selling his “life story rights for a 10-year period” for more than half a million dollars.
Interviewing Women's March head Teresa Shook, who has called for her co-chairs including Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory to resign over issues of anti-Semitism and homophobia, CNN's Alisyn Camerota pointed to a statement that Sarsour and her fellow co-chairs put out. Camerota challenges Shook, saying, "they sound contrite. They're apologizing. They want to continue to learn. Why can't they stay on?"
As we demonstrated in our column this week, the networks have next to zero interest in even mentioning Louis Farrakhan, even as he calls Jewish people "termites" and led chants of "Death to America" recently on a trip to Iran. If Farrakhan fervently backed Trump, like an Islamic version of Kanye West, it's easy to imagine that would be different. But here's just how little the networks have done in the last 12 months, according to a Nexis search.
Louis Farrakhan is the leader of the Nation of Islam, an anti-Semite, a bigot, and an icon to many on the left. His close relationships with many Democratic politicians and liberal activists are almost always treated as a closely guarded secret by the liberal media. That effort to obfuscate Farrakhan was in full effect during Monday’s CBS Evening News report on Iranian sanctions as they ignored the anti-Semite’s chants of “death to America” and “death to Israel” while he was there on Sunday.
Facebook wants to be militant about removing “hate speech.” However, it keeps deleting the wrong content. The site removed a rabbi’s harrowing account of harassment by Rev. Louis Farrakhan supporters, only to say later that the action was done “mistakenly.” The viral post has since been restored after public outcry, according to Jewish Journal
On Sunday's MSNBC Live, during a discussion of the Pittsburgh synagogue attack, host Ayman Mohyeldin repeatedly tried to get Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer to criticize President Donald Trump for allegedly using "dog whistles" that might have encouraged more anti-Semitism. Dermer praised Trump, pointed out that anti-Semitism exists on both the far left and far right, and called out the media for mostly ignoring the recent anti-Semitism of Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan.
Citing facts is now considered hate speech, according to Twitter. LifeSiteNews, a pro-life conservative news outlet, was locked out of its Twitter account on October 18 after Twitter found an article posted four years ago violated its “rules against hateful conduct.” In the article in question, Dr. Gerard M. Nadal, president of the Coalition on Abortion, stated that HIV, syphilis, and gonorrhea were on the rise among the LGBTQ community because 60 percent of homosexual men “failed to disclose their symptoms or status to sex partners.”
Anti-semitism is bad. This is something everyone can agree on. Except for Twitter. On October 18, Facebook removed a video of Rev. Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, referring to Jewish people as “termites” from his page. On October 18, Facebook removed a video of Rev. Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, referring to Jewish people as “termites” from his page. However, the video still remains on Twitter, along with a new tweet from Farrakhan claiming that he doesn’t “hate anyone for their religious preferences.”
