The National Conference of Jewish Affairs (NCJA) held a demonstration at U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office on Thursday at 1 p.m. to protest her failure to discipline Rep. Ilhan Omar for repeatedly using anti-Semitic tropes or pass a clean resolution condemning anti-Semitism. Omar has a long history of controversial statements about Jews, jihadists and Catholic schoolboys.
Theologian and NCJA spokesman Rabbi Aryeh Spero’s group was also joined by supporters from the Middle Eastern Women’s Coalition (an anti-Islamist women’s rights group), the Middle East Research Center and Women for a Great America. The group of demonstrators were heckled by white counter-protesters from Code Pink, a radical anti-war group which supports dialogue with terrorist groups and boycotts of Israel.
“There’s no question that Nancy Pelosi and all of the liberals are ready to condemn anti-Semitism if it comes from the Right or from conservatives, but they’ll never condemn it if it comes from their own house,” Spero said.
Afterwards the group held a 3 p.m. press conference in front of the U.S. Capitol, where they were joined by Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert. Spero hailed Gohmert as “the People’s congressman.” He also thanked Gohmert for his leadership in opposing the House Democrats’ recent anti-bigotry resolution, calling it a “sham.” A Code Pink protester carrying a pink bicycle tried to disrupt the assembly by walking into the crowd and shouting, but she left as Capitol Police started approaching.
In an exclusive interview with Big League Politics, Spero blasted the tendency of Democrats to deflect criticism of Omar by invoking controversial statements by President Trump or Rep. Steve King:
“There’s no question that President Trump is not anti-Jewish, not anti-Semitic, not anti-Israel. He might have had a slip of the tongue or he framed something in such a way that it could be interpreted the wrong way. Omar is not a matter of misintepretation. This is part of a pattern… that’s what’s dangerous about it. This has been used in Europe and other places. What you do is you soil the image of Jews in the population by questioning their loyalty to the country. President Trump never did this.”
Spero also bristled at the notion that he should be more afraid of anti-Semitism from institutionally powerless figures on the Right than from elected members of Congress.
“[Antisemitism is] much more dangerous from the Left. Nobody accepts anybody from the KKK. These are marginalized people. Law enforcement knows exactly who these people are and they would not be allowed to do anything dangerous if the police found out beforehand.
“The Left gets away with it! It’s much more dangerous because the Left does all of its antisemitism and anti-Israelism in the name of social justice. The Left is far more powerful than a few KKK guys in some little enclave in southern Indiana or northern Mississippi. They’re in charge of the culture, the media, academia… the power is unbelievable.
“The biggest proof is that Omar, who’s considered to be from the Left, did what she did and said what she said yet she wasn’t even censured.”
The Ku Kux Klan was once a widespread, popular and politically-powerful white supremacist terrorist organization with as many as 4 million members. After decades of popular scorn sapping their numbers and successful civil suits wiping out their assets, The KKK is now estimated to have as little as 3,000 – 6,000 members nationally.
By contrast, the Nation of Islam (NOI) – a black supremacist anti-Semitic cult with a paramilitary arm – has an estimated 20,000 – 50,000 members. The NOI has published several books of conspiracy theories about Jews including “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews,” whose false claims that Jews were a driving force in the transatlantic slave trade have been condemned by the American Historical Association.
Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, Omar’s predecessor, has faced withering scrutiny for his ties to the NOI and so have the leaders of the Women’s March, an organization that Omar has refused to condemn despite widespread disavowals by feminists.
Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse
At this Time, Cons
Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer, posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail.
In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”
This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.
Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”
She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”
The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”
Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”
Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”
At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.
It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
