EtcetEraThread American journalists are going after Omar Ilhan again
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Antisemitism, history of inflammatory commentary, account in junior phase.
Anti-Semitic tropes that should be avoided: Jews control the media - so don't criticize the media's overwhelming bias towards Israel. Jews control all the money - so don't criticize the influence of political donations in generating support for Israel (i.e. all about the Benjamins). Jews have dual-loyalty - so don't criticize any efforts to undermine the Constitution to criminalize opposition to Israel. Jews partake in "blood libel" - so don't criticize the Israelis overwhelming use of violence against Palestinians for decades. As long as you avoid discussing the media, money, politics, and violence, you're safe in advocating for Palestinian rights. Otherwise, you're skirting too close to those Anti-Semitic tropes and you might offend the people who maybe someday will finally use their privilege to speak up for your rights. Oh but also, if pro-Israel Jews use these tropes, it's ok because they're said in the proper context, but if Jewish critics of Israel use them, they're self-hating Jews who have been radicalized by the Palestinians and the far left.
