With the left on fire over the Steve Bannon announcement, it says more about them than it does Trump. They typically attack the hardest those who threaten them. And Bannon is a huge threat to the Left because they won’t steam roll him or take his ear from a President Trump.
And if we are now going to judge people based on headlines of articles, then no one at the New York Times can have any credibility at all. In fact, just based on those alone I would revoke their human being cards.
EXCLUSIVE – Alan Dershowitz Defends Steve Bannon: ‘Not Legitimate To Call Somebody An Anti-Semite Because You Disagree With Their Policies’
TEL AVIV – Alan Dershowitz, a staunch Democrat and emeritus law professor at Harvard University, is hitting back against the smears claiming White House appointee Steve Bannon is anti-Semitic, arguing it is “not legitimate to call somebody an anti-Semite because you might disagree with their policies.”
I think we have to be very careful before we accuse any particular individual of being an anti-Semite. The evidence certainly suggests that Mr. Bannon has very good relationships with individual Jews. My former researcher, Joel Pollak, is an Orthodox Jew who takes off the Jewish holidays, who is a committed Jew and a committed Zionist, and he has worked closely with him. He has been supportive of Israel.
So, I haven’t seen any evidence of personal anti-Semitism on the part of Bannon. I think the (Breitbart) headline about a Conservative Republican being a renegade Jew was ill-advised. But it doesn’t suggest to me anti-Semitism. It suggests to me a degree of carelessness.
I think the larger problem – and it’s a very complicated one today – is how you assess a person who himself might not have negative characteristics, but who has widespread appeal to people who do. And I think that problem exists on the right and the left. I think there are left-wing candidates who appeal to some of the worst bigots on the hard left. Anti-Semites on the hard left. Anti-Israel people on the hard left. And I think the same thing is probably true of some very right-wing conservatives who appeal vertently or inadvertently to people whose values they probably themselves don’t agree with.
However much Obama disavowed their agenda, it doesn’t seem to matter. Now there are chants at CNN that he has to make a full speech about it. it. Games people play. Sort of like Barry’s race (baiting) speech. In hindsight that Obama speech, plagiarized from Deval Patrick, mattered little and did nothing.
Then the media lights up as a white supremacist meeting takes place in Washington. So they tie that to Bannon and Trump, as if there were a direct tie. The reality is these people have a P/R strategy to use any opportunity. David Duke did the same thing. But now media gives them more publicity than they could even hope for. Media plays their rally statements on a loop.
What a game it is. Force Trump to come out every time one of these groups shows their head, which is fairly frequent with the help of the media. Media has given the KKK and other groups the spotlight thanks to its own political agenda. When that is exactly what racists are trying to do, mainstream their ideas, media is complicit in their strategy.
But the Obama administration has already signaled it is formerly dropping its support for Israel, against the Palestinians’ resolution in the UN.
McDonough added, saying that the Obama administration plans to reevaluate its policy toward Israel and the Palestinian territories.
Though McDonough did not elaborate on what a revamped policy would look like, the White House has suggested that its opposition to Palestinian attempts to secure statehood at the United Nations may soften. On Thursday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters, “Steps that the United States has taken at the United Nations have been predicated on this idea that the two-state solution is the best outcome. Now our ally in these talks has said that they are no longer committed to that solution. That means that we need to reevaluate our position in this matter, and that is what we will do moving forward,” referring to past down-votes by the U.S. on Palestinian statehood initiatives.
Not to forget the BDS, Anti-Semitic left and it’s passion against Israel. Or when “Palestinians” are trying to rewrite history. What news? Media is on a race chase.
No time to report on that with Trump on media’s agenda 24/7. What’s the big deal if Obama drops our central Israel policy? The Spite House is not done with its finale yet.
But the press is running around worried about Trump, associations, and chasing invisible racism…when it is proudly residing at 1600 Penna. Avenue.
