An influential voice at Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire blog made a bigoted anti-European remark on his social media account on Tuesday night.
Editor-at-large Josh Hammer said in a since-deleted Twitter post: “Jew-Hatred is Inherent in the European DNA.”
This came in response to the following post from George Mason University professor Eugene Kontorovich:

Kontorovich’s post was made in reference to the following decision by the European High Court on Tuesday:
The European Court of Justice on Tuesday morning ruled that products made in Israeli settlements must be labeled as such, and may not be marketed as products of Israel.
The dramatic decision will likely cause already-tense relations between Jerusalem and Brussels to further deteriorate, as Israeli politicians from across the political spectrum have long rejected the European Union’s policy of distinguishing between goods made in Israel proper and those manufactured in areas that the EU does not recognize as sovereign Israeli territory.
“Foodstuffs originating in the territories occupied by the State of Israel must bear the indication of their territory of origin, accompanied, where those foodstuffs come from an Israeli settlement within that territory, by the indication of that provenance,” the court — the EU’s highest legal instance — said in a press release…
In a statement, a spokesperson of the EU embassy in Ramat Gan said that “clear and non-misleading indication of origin is an essential part of the EU’s consumer policy.”
The court’s decision confirms the European Commission’s “interpretative notice” of 2015, which first introduced the need to label settlement goods as such, the spokesperson added. “The EU’s position regarding this issue did not change,” she said.
“The EU has a longstanding and well-known position that it will not recognize any changes to pre-1967 Israeli borders other than those agreed by the parties to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” she said. “The EU considers settlements in occupied territories illegal under international law.”
At the same time, the EU rejects “any form of boycott or sanctions against Israel” including the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement, she emphasized.
While Hammer’s frustration with the globalist bureaucracy may be understandable, his bigoted Europhobic comments echo leftist critiques of the continent, which have been used to facilitate the mass migration of third-world refugees:
Hammer’s boss Shapiro has similarly hostile views toward “America First” conservatives. He strongly denounced them during an appearance at Stanford University last week featuring language similar to failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s infamous “Basket of Deplorables” speech from 2016:
Shapiro picked the most racist quotes he could find, refusing to attribute them to any one specific source, in order to denigrate “America First” conservatives during his speech, even quoting testimony from a Nazi killer in one instance to back up his point…
Shapiro also echoed the sentiments of David French, a fellow Never Trumper, in arguing that the LGBT movement’s “Drag Queen Story Hour” pedo-grooming events should be permitted in public libraries, and to ban them would somehow be a betrayal of conservative values…
While Shapiro was – as usual – talking out of both sides of his mouth, it is clear that he has capitulated on key issues in recent years. Conservative Inc. is throwing in the towel on border security and mass immigration, and Shapiro has received his orders to push the propaganda in favor of flooding America with the third world…
While Shapiro claims his opponents are like the radical Left, he regularly appropriates their rhetoric in order to attack opponents on the Right who are not owned by Conservative Inc. The opening of his Stanford speech last night sounds like it could have been recited by Hillary Clinton about Trump supporters.
Hammer is following in Shapiro’s footsteps in serving globalist cosmopolitan masters, rather than the interests of the common people.

SILVER LINING? Coronavirus Economic Fallout Expected to Destroy Hundreds of Main Stream Newspapers, Magazines
The fake news media is dying even more quickly because of coronavirus.
The coronavirus pandemic is expected to cause massive economic damage throughout many sectors, and what remains of the legacy journalism industry may be wiped out as a result.
The Seattle Times serves as a microcosm for what is happening to local papers throughout America in the age of coronavirus. As they deal with a community ravaged by the pandemic, their advertising budget has completely dried up, and they may not be able to remain in business for much longer.
“Virtually all entertainment advertising is gone, restaurants gone. Automobile advertising is starting to get impacted,” said Alan Fisco, the president and CFO of the paper, to BuzzFeed News.
Even though the paper’s “online traffic has been at times off the charts,” they are unable to properly monetize that traffic. They fear that the ad revenue may be lost forever by the time the coronavirus pandemic comes to a close.
“If you go back to events in the past where you’ve seen some big impacts [to ad spending], does all of it come back? It hasn’t,” Fisco said.
Ken Doctor, who analyzes the news industry with the firm Newsonomics, believes that the economic impact caused by the coronavirus pandemic will be much worse for the media industry than the 2008 financial crisis, which resulted in a 19 percent decline in revenue for newspapers.
“[Newspaper] advertising revenue is getting just wiped out,” Doctor said to BuzzFeed News, adding that the situation is already “worse than in 2008 and 2009.”
For many media entities, Doctor believes that this will be the end. He said that “this seems like for them truly it is the full extinction event. I don’t know how they come back.”
The Seattle Times may be able to survive due to rising subscriber fees. Other big-name dailies – like the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Washington Post – are expected to weather the storm as well. However, all of the smaller local newspapers and digital providers will likely be wiped out completely.
“I think there we will unfortunately see more closures of newspapers, more news deserts as a result of this,” Fisco said.
Media companies and reporters are already reporting on the early damage that has been caused because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The phrase being thrown around in an alt-media group on FB. If you don’t support your local newspapers NOW, whether you engage with print or not, you WILL lose an extremely dedicated lifeline to arts, music, culture and unbiased news in your community. pic.twitter.com/T0RMZFOLnA

Rough day at @RiverfrontTimes. Myself and multiple staffers "furloughed." No notice from management in previous days; simply the lovely wake-up notice that I had been booted as FB admin and couldn't log in to email. Love ya'll. Love this staff and the work we do. Sigh.

A spokesperson for BuzzFeed News, who published the initial story about how the media industry is hurting because of coronavirus, said their provider is working to avoid firing staffers in these trying times.
“BuzzFeed’s leadership team is exploring a range of ways to support employees while protecting our business,” said Chief Communications Officer Carole Robinson. “Our goal is to avoid layoffs, with an alternative plan that requires some sacrifice from all of us — and especially those on the executive team — ultimately allowing us to remain a strong company over the long-term.”
The coronavirus pandemic is a worst case scenario come to life, but the economic fallout from the crisis may prove to be fatal for the fake news industry.
