  • Harris’s Ties to Leading Anti-Israel Group Draw Scrutiny

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | October 13, 2020 | Adam Kredo
    Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris’s ties to a leading anti-Israel group are generating scrutiny among Jewish voters, particularly in Florida, a perennial swing state populated by a large number of staunchly pro-Israel voters. As California’s attorney general and then as U.S. senator, Harris forged a relationship with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), one of the nation’s top anti-Israel groups and advocates for boycotts of the Jewish state. CAIR advised Harris on community issues during her time in California politics, and she later offered the group her "gratitude and admiration" in a 2018 personal letter to the group. Harris’s association...

    Can you visualize Biden strengthening America’s allies in the Middle East? The U.S.-brokered peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, which is scheduled to be finalized this week at the White House, strikes a major blow to the twin forces of Islamic imperialism and terror in the Middle East: the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood and the Shi’ite regime in Iran. The tripartite alliance between the United States, Israel and the UAE, openly supported by Saudi Arabia, Oman, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco, gives an institutional structure to a pro-American regional bloc of moderate, anti-jihadist governments all with proven track records...

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) says it met with NBC executives after MSNBC anchor Joy Reid made remarks on Monday that compared the actions of President Trump and his allies to "the way Muslims act" when "radicalizing" supporters. “Thank you @NBC for meeting to discuss our concerns about @JoyAnnReid’s inaccurate, offensive remarks. We appreciate your pledge to avoid Islamophobia in all forms,” CAIR tweeted. The group added that, per their discussion, Reid “must clearly apologize tonight. Anti-Muslim bigotry has no place in mainstream society.” On Tuesday, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) also called on Reid to apologize, saying that “this...

    Laura Loomer has never committed a crime. In 2018 Laura Loomer was banned from Twitter. She was then banned from Facebook and then she was banned from PayPal. CAIR not only worked with Twitter to get Laura Loomer banned they then cheered the news ON TWITTER! And now this– Comcast and its subsidiary Xfinity banned GOP candidate Laura Loomer from sending text messages and emails to supporters. This is Orwellian and should frighten ANY American!

    WASHINGTON — President Trump on Monday told reporters has no plans to visit the casket of civil rights hero John Lewis as he lies in state in the US Capitol. “No, I won’t be going, no,” Trump said when asked if he would travel on Monday or Tuesday to pay his respects.

    Wilfredo Amr Ruiz degrades white Americans with the G-word. CAIR-Florida Communications Director and Puerto Rican-born Wilfredo Amr Ruiz’ social media is filled with accusations against others of racism, and many times he is 100% correct. However, because of the extremist nature of the organizations he surrounds himself with – organizations that embrace horrific bigotry in their own right – Ruiz’s exposing of racism can only be seen as a cynical act being done for nefarious purposes. Last month, Ruiz chose to use a racist slur, himself – “Gringo” – an offensive term that is used primarily against white Americans. He...

    The Hill ^ | December 11, 2018 | John Bowdon
    Video at link. Fox News host Jesse Watters took aim at his co-host Juan Williams during Tuesday's episode of "The Five," mocking Williams on-air and joking that his fellow co-host sounded as if he was on drugs. During a contentious debate between the two personalities over President Trump's planned wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, Williams, who is an opinion columnist for The Hill, asserted that such a barrier would do little to stop drug trafficking, a top concern of the Trump administration, asserting that most trafficking occurs at legal ports of entry. "The bigger one is, the drugs that you...

    All Things D ^ | 10/10/13 | Mike Isaac and Kara Swisher
    Vivian Schiller, NBC News’ SVP and chief digital officer, is being tapped for Twitter’s head of news position, according to sources familiar with the matter. AllThingsD reported last week that she was the leading pick for the high-profile job. The deal is now “all but done,” according to sources, although Schiller will apparently take a significant period of time off between the end of her current position at NBC and the start of the new job at Twitter. -snip- Schiller’s NPR stint ended in controversy; she resigned from NPR in March following some very dicey snafus.

    Last week, National Public Radio CEO Vivian Schiller took a break from her crusade for a government takeover of the media to swat a fly. With now-former NPR analyst Juan Williams suitably splattered across the evening news after politically incorrect comments he made on Fox News, Schiller can return to her real passion – the creation of a national network to ensure that in the future, you get your news from the government in general and NPR in particular.
  • Is Juan Williams a Bigot? (Q & A column)

    Question: Curious: Had Juan said something to the effect that he's aware that some people cross the street when they see a group of Black people walking along, I don't think he would have been fired. In this case, he's speaking of a stereotype that sadly resonates in 2010. On the other hand, was Williams simply being honest? Does it make him a bigot instantly for his feelings on being on a plane with Muslims? Answer: ... I think Vivian Schiller has a real problem: In the eyes of the public, the press has moved on from this concept of...

    Juan Williams once again got himself into trouble with NPR for comments he made at his other job, at Fox News. And NPR's reaction has unleashed an unprecedented firestorm of criticism directed not at Williams – but at NPR. (snip) Thursday was a day like none I’ve experienced since coming to NPR in October 2007. Office phone lines rang non-stop like an alarm bell with no off button. We’ve received more than 8,000 emails, a record with nothing a close second. (snip)At noon, the deluge of email crashed NPR’s “Contact Us” form on the web site.
  • NPR Should Have Dumped Juan Williams -- but Not Today

    The Root ^ | October 21, 2010 | David Swerdlick
    Is Juan Williams a bigot? Probably not. Should National Public Radio have fired him for his anti-Muslim comments on Fox News? Not this time. No doubt Williams' bosses at NPR hated it when he was introduced several times each week on Fox News as "NPR's Juan Williams." (In fact, last year they asked him to stop identifying himself as a NPR correspondent when he appeared on Fox.) But if working for NPR and Fox News simultaneously is impossible, then NPR should have cut ties with him a long time ago. Letting him go now makes NPR look biased -- the...

    NYT Opinion ^ | June 3, 2020 | Juan Williams
    In Columbia, S.C., on Saturday, a young protester told a reporter that she just didn’t think voting is “how change happens.” “They’ve been telling us to do that for so long,” she added, “and we’ve done it — and look at everything that’s still going on.” Fury over the cruel death of George Floyd, a black man in police custody, combined with fear of a deadly virus and its painful economic impact, make this a dark, dizzying moment in our national life. But African-Americans shouldn’t feel hopeless, because the black vote does matter — it has never mattered more. It...

    News analysts at NPR – we are told – are held at a different ethical standard because they are news analysts and not commentators. I’m not sure what the difference between a news analyst, reporter or a correspondent is, but I think I know a commentator when I see one. Juan Williams definitely expressed his opinion on Fox News. I’m not so sure if he expressed his opinion on NPR, since it seems, all of his stuff has been wiped off the site.

    NPR faced fierce public and political reaction - most of it strongly negative - in the wake of its firing of commentator Juan Williams for comments he made on a Fox News program earlier in the week. Even NPR's own staff expressed exasperation at the decision during a meeting Friday with NPR's president, Vivian Schiller. Several of those who attended said Schiller told employees that she regretted how she handled the episode.

    If anti-Muslim hate crimes do not exist, they must be invented. They’re simply too politically useful to do without. And so it is that the Minnesota chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) held a press conference Monday to demand the firing of a Starbucks barista who was so “Islamophobic” as to write “ISIS” on a Muslim woman’s coffee cup. CAIR also announced that it had filed a discrimination complaint with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights about the incident. If you think that the world is on fire and that CAIR should find more important things to...
  • Leftist Effort to Ban Cops from Using Tear Gas Against Lawless Protestors Crushed by Court

    A preposterous lawsuit demanding cops be banned from using tear gas to disperse lawless protestors who block city streets and interfere with traffic has been struck down by a judge who ruled this week that the restriction “unnecessarily burdens the police and puts them and the public at risk.” The case was filed in Virginia by a leftist civil rights group that claims the city of Richmond and its police department as well as the state police violated the Constitutional rights of law-breaking protestors by using tear gas and other crowd control tactics during a disruptive Black Lives Matter demonstration...

    At pro-Palestinian Black Lives Matter rallies in New York and Washington, chants were heard calling for “Death to Israel,” “Death to America” and “From Gaza to Minnesota, globalize the Intifada!” Several hundred protesters attended the July 1 demonstration in Brooklyn dubbed as a “Day of Rage” event, set to coincide with the earliest date Israel could begin its plans to apply Israeli law over parts of the West Bank and the Jordan Valley. Speakers issued inflammatory rallying cries that ran the gamut from anti-Semitic and anti-American to just plain absurd. One pro-North Korea activist called for the end of the...
