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.

EtcetEraThread Congresswoman Omar ignites new anti-Semitism controversy with comments on AIPAC
Reason User banned (duration pending): Misrepresenting information and history of severe infractions surrounding racism and prejudice
I'm specifically pointing out the fact that some people are offended by things the BLM activists do. And that it's not the job of the BLM activists to apologize to anyone whose feelings they hurt when they attack the institutions that perpetuate the subjugation of their people. AIPAC is a racist, Islamophobic, war-mongering organization that exerts enormous influence on American politics. We should refuse to pile on Ilhan Omar for fumbling around her criticism of AIPAC when 90%+ of Congress members from both parties support such a racist organization in the first place.

EtcetEraThread Washington Post: Obama met with Beto about running in 2020
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Excusing racism and sexism, Account in Junior Phase, History of similar infractions
What were Obama's policies on race relations? What were Clinton's? Decoupling "race relations" from the economic/class discussion is the fundamental flaw here. This is why engaging in identity politics is so harmful.

EtcetEraThread Bernie Sanders: White People Uncomfortable About Voting for Black Candidates Not Necessarily Racist
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Excusing Racism, Account in Junior Phase
Here's the quote: The context changes completely when you leave out the second sentence. And if you read on, here's what he said specifically about Gillum: If you can read that and claim that Sanders is "excusing" racism, then I don't know what else to say. You may have already come into this with a negative perception of him. You're not really leaving him much benefit of the doubt, when he's someone who has worked his whole life to defend POC.
