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.”
Twitter is very keen on promoting “healthy conversation” and removing “dehumanizing language.” The exception to the rule? Louis Farrakhan. In a video tweeted by Farrakhan, the minister compared Jewish people to“termites.”
Question: What is more cringe-inducing than a celebrity funeral? Answer: Two back-to-back celebrity funerals. The ghoulish twin spectacles last week memorializing Aretha Franklin and John McCain brought out the worst in family, friends and frenemies. No matter your partisan affiliation, these vulgar exercises in self-indulgence should serve as object lessons on how not to depart with dignity.
On Tuesday's CBS This Morning, as the regular team of hosts returned from the Labor Day holiday, the group caught up with NBC's Today show in fretting over a pastor at Aretha Franklin's funeral who delivered a conservative message, but they still did not mention the controversy around Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan being allowed to share a stage with former President Bill Clinton and other prominent Democrats. In fact, former Attorney General and possible presidential candidate Eric Holder even posed for a photograph with the ardently anti-Semitic religious figure.
