The evidence that Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib maintain anti-Semitic sentiments is overwhelming.
(((AG)))The Case Against Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib: "The preponderance of evidence suggests that they know exactly what they are saying and why. Those who continue to defend them probably do, too."
Max Boot is a narcissistic, dishonest, calculating, manipulative writer who engages in the same willfully dishonorable conduct he claims to disdain in others.
(((AG)))Go read @charlescwcooke on Max Boot's strategic dishonesty & the feedback loop that encourages it.
'In a sensible world, the editors of WaPo would have looked at what Boot has tried to do over the last couple of days, and tattooed “hack” on his forehead'
Based on your skin color, says the white pundit, you’re either a victim or a villain.
(((AG)))The author specifically rejects white nationalism and white grievance politics. Further, he is calling out Boot w/ specific examples for generalizing about (white) people, but Boot portrays that rejection of bigotry as bigotry.
Their falsehoods were immoral, divisive, and quite possibly unlawful.
(((AG)))"On Friday afternoon, two of the leading contenders in the Democratic presidential primary lied. There’s no other fair way to put it. They flat-out spread fiction, libeled an innocent man, and stoked American divisions — all for political gain."
On Twitter, Connor Betts, the Dayton shooter, called himself a leftist and wrote that he was going to hell. Read more about his politics and social media.
(((AG)))Actual quotes from Daytona mass shooter:
“I want socialism, and i’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding”
“Vote blue for Gods sake”
He expressed support for “the squad”
Indicated he would vote for Warren. He hated Trump.
The release of the Israelis is probably in response to the girl changing her version of the story, which harmed her accountability.
(((AG)))Wow. So there was a story going around a few days ago about a group of Israeli teens who allegedly gang-raped a British girl in Cyprus.
It now turns out that the sex was consensual and Cyprus police have arrested the girl for a false report.
Suggestions for journalists actually interested in accountability from those in power
(((AG)))New from me at NRO:
"The squad" has been doing several interviews lately. It makes sense that those interviews cover Trump's tweets, but the press should take the opportunity to also ask them some tough unanswered questions. Here are some suggestions
(((AG)))Omar has avoided questions about her abuse of campaign funds and shady personal history. Tlaib has avoided answering for her countless associations with antisemites. AOC hasn't explained her plan on the border.
Journalists should ask these questions
Did Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “concentration camp” rhetoric inspire Willem van Spronsen to attack a detention facility? Media isn’t curious.
(((AG)))@AOC Press must decide whether political rhetoric is responsible for inciting violence or not. As @NoahCRothman notes: "The disparity in how national media outlets handle the question of “incitement” by political figures has become intolerably lopsided."
Tacoma police said they shot at an armed man early Saturday who was attacking the Northwest Detention Center, the holding facility in Tacoma for federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The man died at the scene. Around 4 a.m., officers...
(((AG)))A man armed with a rifle and incendiary devices killed while trying to attack an ICE facility in Washington.
Are there going to be any conversations about the dangerous rhetoric from the left and media are leading to violence?
Democrat seeking to challenge Mitch McConnell, who has touted a letter she wrote at age 13 that he did not answer, featured Kentuckians writing their own.
(((AG)))Amy McGrath apparently trying to set a new low for worst campaign rollout ever. Her launch video implied that McConnell was ignoring pleas from constituents, but turns out the letters cited in the video were postmarked that same day.
A former Trump campaign staffer is suing President Donald Trump and his campaign, alleging that the then-Republican presidential candidate kissed her without her consent during the 2016 race. She's also suing over equal pay -- claiming that she was...
After the U.S. team won the World Cup on Sunday, a major focus from the team and the media was a complaint over an alleged gender-pay disparity.
(((AG)))New from me at NRO:
"Mainstream press sources gave the impression that the women’s teams were being treated unfairly in the World Cup despite the numbers clearly telling a different story. That’s a problem with the press, not discriminatory pay."
