NPR's badly named evening newscast All Things Considered recently devoted two eight-minute segments to anchor Audie Cornish soliciting the radical thoughts of Muslim activists in Dearborn, Michigan. In the first, a man named Iltefat Hamzavi fried up this hate nugget: "I've been at many dinner tables where somebody voted for Trump. And you're like, that's like chickens voting for Chick-fil-A." In the second, they lamented "the media" being unfair to Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
This week, the world marked the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by Allied forces during World War II. Politicians of all stripes dutifully tweeted, “#NeverAgain.” Meanwhile, many of those same politicians continued to forward the worst sort of anti-Semitism, blithely ignoring the fact that anti-Semitism isn't a relic of the past but a thriving part of the present.
Last Thursday, the press in Ilhan Omar's home base of Minneapolis reported the congresswoman filed for divorce after a previous round of stories noted a wife of one of her political strategists, Tim Mynette, accused Omar of adultery with her husband in their divorce papers. None of these new developments can be found anywhere in the news transcripts on the Nexis database, including Fox News Channel.
On Thursday, The Washington Post rushed to publish the infuriating story of a young African American girl savagely bullied by white boys at a Northern Virginia private Christian school. Although more details emerged on Monday that the account was made up by the child, many in the media had spent days leaping to bash the Christian school, and by extension, Second Lady Karen Pence, who teaches there, and who has already faced backlash over the institution’s “anti-gay” support for traditional marriage.
Just when we thought colleges could not spout loonier ideas, we have a new one from American University. They hired a professor to teach other professors to grade students based on their "labor" rather than their writing ability. The professor that American University hired to teach that nonsense is Asao B. Inoue, who is a professor at the University of Washington in Tacoma in interdisciplinary arts and sciences. He is also the director of the university's writing center. Inoue believes that a person's writing ability should not be assessed, in order to promote “anti-racist” objectives.
Dear fellow patriots: It's time to stop making nice with those who are waging war on ICE. Are you sick of your neighborhoods being hijacked by law enforcement-bashing thugs who prioritize every last illegal immigrant over law-abiding families, workers and employers? Are you sick of do-nothing politicians promising to take action while well-funded and well-organized protesters riot in our streets and obstruct criminal arrests?
How extreme are the members of the so-called Democratic “squad?” Extreme enough that even Bill Maher finds Congresswoman Rashida Talib extreme. On Wednesday, he actually posted a defense of our staunch Middle East ally after Tlaib not only slammed that nation, but also called for a boycott of Maher’s long-running program. While calling the Minnesota Democrat “childlike” in her behavior, the comedian tweeted:
In a Wednesday appearance on the Fox Business Network’s Trish Regan Primetime with fill-in host David Asman, NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham ripped into The New York Times by comparing the newspaper to the current Congress, complete with a lefty leader being besieged by their “radical base”.
President Trump handed the liberal media more ammunition on Wednesday when he doubled down on his inartful comments criticizing American Jews who voted for Democrats instead of siding with Israel. With the President calling them “disloyal”, accusations of anti-Semitism poured forth from the media. Meanwhile, Democratic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (MN) and Rashida Tlaib (MI) were wrapped up in their own cases of anti-Semitism and claims of disloyalty, yet the liberal media covered for them.
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.
