Racist fringe Ben Norton, reminds radicals' talking points that you're not black, if you don't vote for Biden

Posted on 09/03/2020 4:20:18 PM PDT by Marinario

I realize, it was Biden himself that said that one isn't black if one votes for Trump. But we all know, the idea's root is at AOC, Omar/Tlaib types. Recently, after the Beirut explosion, and Arab Lebanese began criticizing the armed Hezbollah, an Amerucan radical left called these Arabs "sellouts". His name is Ben Norton. Writing at Salon and active at his Grayzone

Some People Are So Antisemitic, They Support Hezbollah

AUGUST 14, 2020 9:54 AM

... plenty of Lebanese people hate Hezbollah. The comments on Naharnet are filled with people arguing about Israel — with plenty of them defending the Jewish state.

But Ben Norton, a pseudo-journalist who works for Max Blumenthal’s Grayzone site, is incensed at the Haddad tweet:

A white Westerner who considers himself a liberal is saying that Lebanese people who disagree with his rabid hate of Israel are “sellouts” for hating Hezbollah more. This is a typical, racist attitudethat the only Arabs allowed to have an opinion are those whose opinions match a leftist white man.

The Grayzone’s apologetics for the Hezbollah terror group are something to behold. Here’s a video where they blame everyone but Hezbollah for Lebanon’s problems, and where the person being interviewed says flatly that Israel doesn’t want a functioning, civil Lebanon but prefers that it be divided into sectarian groups that hate each other, because that is what ‘Zionism’ demands (starting at 20:00).

In the end, these people’s hate for Israel is so crazy that they feel they must support any group that opposes the Jewish state, no matter how illiberal or murderous they might be.

This is the power of antisemitism — that anyone who hates Jews is an ally.


Here is more salute for Hezbolah, in 2017, attacking those that dare criticize Hezbollah...

Jacobin runs absurd piece on Lebanon by pro-Syrian rebel, anti-Hezbollah writer

30 November 2017

In an article on Saad Hariri and the political situation Lebanon for the world’s premier neo-Kautskyite magazine Jacobin, Elia El Khazen, a proud self-declared Trotskyite who despises Hezbollah, ludicrously claims that it is collaborating with the US.

Even more preposterously, El Khazen’s Jacobin essay tries to link Hezbollah to the US-led so-called “war on terror,” despite the US government’s avowed commitment to crushing the group, and despite the fact that the US government has used the bogeyman of the “war on terror” to attack Hezbollah.
For context, El Khazen has outlandishly referred to Hezbollah as a “fascist reactionary party,” part of Syrian government-allied forces, which he called “the most reactionary factions history has ever seen.”
He wrote this in a 2016 screed condemning “pseudo-leftists” for not supporting (CIA-backed) Syrian rebels, published on the blog of Joey Ayoub, another fanatically pro-opposition troll who has relentlessly lobbied for regime change in Syria....Sectarians who portray Hezbollah as evil extremists...

Ben Norton... the Salon writer...

The fall of POLITICO Media
Radical as they come:::
The writer there, on the extreme, anti Biden, Ben Norton on Twitter: “ Who else saw this coming? Nathan Robinson is yet another staunchly anti-Marxist “libertarian socialist” / anarcho-liberal who is now openly endorsing right-wing war criminal Joe Biden for president. Trump and Biden are almost politically indistinguishable on most major issues” / Twitter

Trivializing Holocaust::::

Ben Norton
Replying to
Shameful. The US Holocaust Memorial Museum is explicitly saying the Nazi Holocaust cannot be compared to anything else in history
This makes the phrase “never again” meaningless, erasing & whitewashing other genocides. It’s a form of holocaust revisionism


Yahoo Promotes (Another) Fringe Hate Site
CAMERA - Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis
Jan 26 update: A Yahoo spokesperson has informed CAMERA that MintPress News has now been blocked. See details....
... Ben Norton, a pro-BDS activist, picked up the story from IMEMC, and began his November 2014 article with the following sentence...

CAMERA - Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis
In a factually challenged piece in Salon, Ben Norton displays a dazzling skepticism of information from Israeli sources alongside a great acceptance of unfounded anti-Israel conspiracy theories (“ Prominent American professor proposes that Israel ‘flatten’ Beirut – a million-person city it previously decimated,” Feb. 19).
Norton’s article, a critical response to a Feb. 15 Haaretz Op-Ed by Professor Amitai Etzioni, is first and foremost based on the false premise that the professor called for flattening Beirut. Norton, a politics staff writer at Salon, avers: “Etzioni concludes his piece implying Israel has no other option but to bomb the city of Beirut

MARCH 15, 2016
Writing about an Israeli airstrike on Hamas facilities in Gaza, Salon’s Ben Norton selectively cites context, downplaying the rocket threat and depicting Palestinian attackers as victims. He also presents outdated information as if it’s current.

BDS Cries Mccarthyism
Z. Raymond
Jun 8, 2016 · New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order against BDS... In the Salon article Norton’s description of BDS is false in itself, as its goal is not merely to pressure Israel to “comply with international law” and cease its alleged “violations of Palestinian human rights” – but actually for the delegitimization and destruction of the only Jewish state.
Clearly a BDS supporter himself, Norton then moves on to his own delegitimization of Israel. He exaggerates Bernie Sanders’ criticism of Israel, and implies Israel indiscriminately bombs innocent Palestinians in Gaza, with no mention of Hamas


Here are some more of Ben Norton’s “beauties” (with his co “activist” Blumenthal) via his Grayzone:

“... you’re not black, if you don’t vote for Biden..,”

You are right...I’m not black and therefore I am not voting for Joe Biden!

Max Blumenthal, psycho Clintonista confident and hitman Sidney’s son, is such as hardcore communist/Marxist tht there was an article stating that German Communists wouldn’t let him join their Party/movement.

Now that means he is beyond being a psychopathic communist, anti-Semite Clintonista anti-Israel KAPO jihadist.

Wise person said: If you scratch the surface of almost all radical anti Israel “activists” you will find at the core, anti Jewish racism.
