During an impassioned segment on MSNBC, Donny Deutsch slammed Hollywood and corporate America for their silence amid Hamas’ deadly attacks on Israel.
“I don’t understand the silence from Hollywood. I don’t understand the silence from corporate America. I don’t understand the silence from the academics. And I don’t understand the silence from so many politicians,” Deutsch said, speaking with anchor Nicolle Wallace.
Deutsch, who is Jewish, was previously a host on MSNBC and CNBC. The television personality and political analyst now hosts the podcast “On Brand With Donny Deutsch.”
“There is not context here. This is about the slaughtering of Jews,” Deutsch said. “It’s a level of heinousness we can’t even understand… beheading a baby, taking a nine-month old hostage, raping and dragging a dead woman through the town, killing elderly people. It goes back to my question again: Why the silence in this country from our institutions? Hollywood?”
Deutsch’s comments come as Israel has been under attack since Hamas’ surprise ambush on October 7, firing thousands of rockets from Gaza. Not since the Holocaust has there been a massacre of Jews this large. At least 1,200 people have died in Israel, including at least 22 U.S. citizens, and more than 100 civilians have been kidnapped and held hostage. On-the-ground reports have included gruesome details such as children being “butchered” in front of the their parents, and women being raped next to the slain bodies of their friends.
President Joe Biden has condemned Hamas as a terrorist organization, and has expressed unwavering support for Israel as it now retaliates in Gaza where at least 1,100 people have died.
On MSNBC, Deutsch held Hollywood celebrities and corporate leaders to task for not speaking out in support of Jewish people.
“They’re afraid they’re going to offend part of their audience, but I don’t understand Hollywood’s quietness,” Deutsch said.
During the segment, Deutsch brought up a viral post that has been circulating on social media, calling out the top ten most-followed Instagram accounts in the world for not speaking up about the war in Israel: Christiano Ronaldo, Leo Messi, Selena Gomez, Kylie Jenner, Dwayne Johnson, Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift. Collectively, those celebrities have roughly four billion followers on the platform. “Not one of you have shown your support for the Jewish people,” the post said. (Since the post began to garner attention, Johnson, Kardashian and Bieber have posted about Israel.)
On MSNBC, Deutsch said, “The Top 10 most well-known Instagrammers who have four billion followers — half the country.” He continued, “Anti-semitism is the biggest to young people. But also, corporate America. Where are the CEOs? A few have spoken out. How is this not just outrage across the board?”
Deutsch compared Hamas’ mission to the Nazis when speaking with Wallace.
“Let’s be clear about it: Their reason to be Hamas has nothing to do with a two-state solution, has nothing to do with Netanyahu, has nothing to do with escalation or retaliation, it has nothing to do with human rights,” Deutsch said. “It has to do with the massacre and the killing of Jews on this planet. That’s their mission.”
“You can have context over here where you talk about both sides, where you talk about the complex issues, where you talk about the oppression on both sides, where you can empathize with the Palestinian plight,” he continued. “But there is no context here. There was no context to 9/11. We have to be able to talk about it in absolute terms.”
When contacted by Variety, Deutsch said he decided to speak out “because anti-semitism is about silence. Where are the loudest voices?”
And it’s also about Islam.
I bet you he gave a contribution to the squad.
Let me explain it to you Donny, in one sentence:
THEY HATE ISRAEL!...............
Yo Donny, you’re bothered by the silence from your people, your brethren? Is this a red pill moment for you?
That is right, I’m sad to say.
Keep voting Democrat, Donny.
They laugh at you every time...............
Along with the rest of the rat party.
Well, Sarah Silverman came around, so maybe this dipshit will?
Actually, silence is preferable to loudmouths like the singer Roger Waters and that skanky Playboy model (fired) who proclaim the support for evil.
I have no doubt what he’d be saying if Antifa had slaughtered some babies of MAGAs
This creep says the most vicious things about Donald Trump - so why is he complaining about getting what he wanted?
I think lots of people fooled themselves into thinking what Trump did anybody could do....and it wouldn’t really matter if we had a brain dead lying corrupt idiot as POTUS as long as he didn’t send mean tweets.
Prior to Bud Light etc, people were not standing up.
Then came that whole fiasco. Not so much the trans dimension, as much as people being taken for granted, being ignored. Just listen to Ms Heinerscheid's own words focused on Bud Light's "more resonant and meaningful" Super Bowl commercial
25:11..."Yeah! I....I think number one...you know...I'm a businesswoman...I had a really clear job to do, when I took over Bud Light. And....it was...this brand is in decline, it's been in decline for a really long time. And if we do not attract...young drinkers, to come and drink this brand, there will be no future for Bud Light. So I had this super clear mandate. Like, we need to evolve and elevate, this incredibly iconic brand. And...my...what I brought to that, was a belief in...ok, what does "evolve and elevate" mean? It's means INCLUSIVTY. It means shifting the tone. It means having a campaign that's truly inclusive and feels lighter and brighter and different and appeals to women and to men. And representation is at sort of at the heart of evolution. You've got see people who reflect you, in the work. We had this hangover...I mean...Bud Light had been...kind of a brand of...fratty...kind of out of touch humor...and, it was REALLY important that we had, another approach.
And then a funny thing happened…Stella the Deplorable got her groove back.
I can draw a straight line between Bud Light former customers walking away and sales falling 30%, and Donnie tossing Hollywood and Harvard students getting doxxed.
Thank you, Ms. Heinerscheid.
What about Islam? The left doesn’t like Muslims. They are just a tool. Once they are not useful anymore, they will get the same treatment. Muslims are already starting to rebel against them.
I thought she was more woke than ever?
The left, including the entertainment industry, the media, and academia, are ready to take a position condoning sex trafficking, including children, and the butchery of innocents, including children. It’s because of how strongly they believe in their cause, like dedicated Marxists of the last century. It’s just how they are. One would think that Stalin, Mao, Polpot, Sun and Ho would have proven that conclusively by now.
Hamas is 100% Muslim.
