DERSHOWITZ: It’s Time To Primary Ilhan Omar

Published

on

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz wants controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar out of Congress.
Earlier this week, Dershowitz called for Democrats to defeat her in her next primary.
On Fox News, Dershowitz said “The Democrats must marginalize her and distance her from the center of the party. And I hope she’ll be primaried, and she should be beaten in a primary by people who support the United States and people who support American allies, rather than people who support American enemies.””

In the last few weeks, Omar has garnered controversy for asserting that the Jewish lobby has too much power in DC.

After pressure from House Democratic leaders, Omar apologized, but continued scuffling with Jewish Democratic lawmakers over the past weekend.

Congresswoman Nita Lowey called out Omar’s remarks for saying that Jewish lawmakers have an allegiance to a foreign country like Israel. Omar responded, “Our democracy is built on debate, Congresswoman! I have not mischaracterized our relationship with Israel, I have questioned it and that has been clear from my end.”

Dershowitz believes that Omar is misinterpreting Lowey’s support for a U.S. ally.

He continued:

“For her to accuse Jewish members of Congress and non-Jewish members of Congress of dual loyalty because they support America’s allies … would you accuse somebody of dual loyalty if they supported England, if they supported France and other American allies?”

In Dershowitz’s view, Omar pulled a “bait and switch” in the House, because she originally did not campaign on an anti-Israel platform, but is now honing in on the issue.

Indeed, Ilhan Omar’s stint in Congress has been controversial across the board.

Her efforts to challenge seasoned agents of the military-industrial complex like Elliot Abrahams are laudable, but her presence in Congress comes with a ton of baggage.

Ties to radical Islamists and other nefarious actors sully some of her otherwise sensible actions like grilling Elliot Abrams.

Although the U.S. should maintain a restrained foreign policy, it should at least lend cultural and moral support to countries like Israel. After all, Israel is the most westernized and modern nation in the Middle East.

There is validity in criticizing Israel for some of its policies, but criticizing it in order to advance pro-Islamist talking points is the not best course of action.

All things considered, it’s time that the voters of Minnesota’s 5th district relieve Omar of the burden of holding public office.

A Week After Getting Kicked Off YouTube, Stefan Molyneux Gets Booted from Twitter

Published

on

On July 7, 2020, right wing social media philosopher Stefan Molyneux received a suspension from Twitter, a week following his ban from YouTube. This move comes at a time when many people are questioning Big Tech’s influence on political discussion on the Internet

The ban was implemented without even so much as a warning, according to a report by RT. Molyneux explained the situation during a livestream. “It’s nice to see that Twitter is talking to tech journalists before they would talk to me,” he commented. The right-wing pundit asserted that he was suspended from the platform following the promotion of a new essay that details his values and beliefs. “It’s not hard to understand why powerful people might not want you to read what I wrote below,” Molyneux wrote in a note detailing his suspension from Twitter.

Molyneux is of the opinion that the campaign to deplatform conservative influences has begun to “energize” conservatives. He believes that his ban shows “who has the power and who doesn’t have the power.”

Twitter disputed the idea that he was kicked off for ideological reasons. Twitter provided a statement to CNN in which it contended that Molyneux “was suspended for spam and platform manipulation, specifically operating fake accounts.”

But others condemned Twitter’s decision and warned of a growing assault on free speech, expecting “the purge” to “accelerate.”

Fellow commentators such as Mike Cernovich were critical of this decision. He took it a step further by predicting that the group of renowned public figures who recently signed on to an open letter calling out cancel culture would not bother to defend Molyneux.

Cernovich tweeted,”The Venn diagram of people who just signed that Against Cancel Culture letter and those who will mention Stefan Molyneux being banned will be two wholly non-intersecting circles.”

Molyneux is the host of Freedomain Radio and was permanently unpersoned from YouTube on June 29 after supposedly being in violation of the site’s “hate speech” policies.

Molyneux’s removal comes at a time when Big Tech is putting the clamps on all forms of right-wing dissent.

BLP previously reported on Big Tech attacking pro-gun groups as part of their plan to muzzle any form of right-wing expression.

As the 2020 elections approach, this kind of censorship will likely increase against figures who actually stir the pot.
