Hey look, it is three of our least favorite people in the world – Nosferatu, Nicolle Wallace and Deep State guy – lamenting the rise of anti-Semitic attacks on an MSNBC panel and calling for more censorship because the truth about how Israel treats the Palestinians is spilling out on social media.
The vast majority of Americans are kind, decent and well-meaning people including the ones who are “pro-Israel.” They have no idea what is going on between the Palestinians and Israelis because the corporate media lies and obfuscates the subject to keep them in the dark. Pretty much all that they know is that Hamas is firing rockets at Israel and that “Israel has the right to defend itself.” They don’t know the context of the situation which is that Israeli settlers are driving Palestinians out of their homes and seizing control of their property. It is completely foreign to their experience.
Nosferatu is probably right about the uptick in anti-Semitic attacks. There are Palestinians here who have a dog in the fight to whom it is personal. There are millions of other people, especially young people who are on TikTok, who have recently learned for the first time what it is really like in Israel because they have seen the videos of the lynch mobs and the settlers driving people from their homes. Those videos have been platformed and discussed all over YouTube before they could be censored by the ADL.
Needless to say, it is difficult to separate what was on display in those videos from the narrative that Israel is OUR GREATEST ALLY. It is vital for the ADL to stop independent media from covering Israel and ordinary people having access to platforms where they can see what is going on and talk about it.
