Another Hollywood Actress Joins Alyssa Milano in Condemning Anti-Semitic Women’s March Leaders

This is kind of surprising.

Debra Messing, star of “Will & Grace” and a noted progressive activist has joined with fellow actress/activist Alyssa Milano in condemning anti-Semitic leaders of the infamous Women’s March.

In all honesty, given how much the left seems to hate Israel, this is sort of amazing.

Messing tweeted out an article from The Advocate, in which Milano pledges not to speak at January’s repeat Women’s March and denounces the group over its connection to anti-Semitic hate preacher Louis Farrakhan.

Milano told The Advocate that she is uncomfortable with the connection between Women’s March leaders Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez, and Linda Sarsour and the Chicago-based leader of the Nation of Islam. Milano did not mince words in condemning the anti-Semitism she’s seen crop up on the Left, and called upon the three women to denounce Farrakhan.

“Any time that there is any bigotry or anti-Semitism in that respect, it needs to be called out and addressed. I’m disappointed in the leadership of the Women’s March that they haven’t done it adequately,” Milano said. “I would say no at this point. Unfortunate that none of them have come forward against him at this point. Or even given a really good reason why to support them.”

Sarsour has often been accused of anti-Semitism, attending Farrakhan’s events and defending the virulently anti-Semitic leader. Just last week, in a post-election appearance on Democracy Now’s livestream network, Sarsour, who appointed herself a leader in the Women’s March’s efforts to battle anti-Semitism, blamed the Democratic Party’s support for the nation of Israel for its lackluster performance in the 2018 midterms.

At the end of the day, there’s a whole lot of anti-Semitism coming from the progressive movement, which is why it’s so shocking to see two very outspoken liberals in Hollywood come out and condemn Sarsour for being associated with Farrakhan.

Perhaps some folks are starting to wake up, ditching the progressive kool-aid and look into individual issues for themselves. This is a practice people on both left and right could benefit from doing a bit more of in our highly divisive political climate.

Most issues are much more complicated than either side cares to admit.

Businesses Should Require Vax Proof from Customers, Says NIH Director

This is simply unconscionable.

There have long been fears that this sort of discrimination was on the horizon, as the willingly unvaccinated become second-class citizens right here in the United States. With only about half of the US population fully vaccinated, (and largely by their own accord), herd immunity looks to be some time away yet.  Nearly 20% more of the population will need to wind up with COVID antibodies in order for public health officials to consider the pandemic to be waning, and a maximum pressure campaign is taking shape throughout a number of levels of government. During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Dr. Frances Collins used his position as the Director of the National Institutes of Health to pressure businesses around the nation to enact strict vaccine-proof restrictions. Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Some businesses are going a step further and requiring proof of vaccinations not just for employees, but even for customers in some cases. Audience members for broadway plays and musicals need to be vaccinated. Some bars in San Francisco and D.C. are requiring proof of vaccinations. Do you think as a public health measure it would be good for more businesses to require vaccine credentials in order to have vaccinated customers?” His answer was astonishing. Collins said, “As a public health person who wants to see this pandemic end, yes. I think anything we can do to encourage reluctant folks to get vaccinated because they’ll want to be part of these public events, that’s a good thing. I’m delighted to see employers like Disney and Walmart coming out and asking their staff to be vaccinated. I’m glad to see the president has said all federal employees. I oversee NIH. With 40,000 people need to get vaccinated or if they’re not to get regular testing which is inconvenient. All of…

Unrepentant YouTube Decides to Suspend Mainstream News Channel Over ‘Misinformation’

The barons of the Information Revolution are no less corrupt than those of the Industrial Revolution before them.

There are concerns that the barons of the Information Revolution, much like the barons of the Industrial Revolution, are exploiting their content producers at an unsustainable clip, and creating a very dangerous bottleneck in the world of free speech. Given just how much of the internet’s traffic flows through just a few sites, it is imperative that we keep a keen eye on what platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are doing.  They are the new gatekeepers of nearly the entire breadth of current information, and if they were to choose to keep us in the dark on any particular issue, it would be quite easy for them to do so. That’s why the latest news from YouTube is so terrifying. YouTube said Sunday it had barred Sky News Australia from uploading new content for one week, citing concerns about Covid-19 misinformation. The move comes after a review of posts uploaded by the Rupert Murdoch-owned TV channel, which has a substantial online presence. “We have clear and established Covid-19 medical misinformation policies… to prevent the spread of Covid-19 misinformation that could cause real-world harm,” a YouTube statement said. With 1.86 million YouTube subscribers, the channel — which is owned by a subsidiary of Murdoch’s News Corp — has a conservative following well beyond Australia. The mainstream media and the mainstream social networks haven’t always gotten their COVD info right, either, which makes their declarations regarding “misinformation” all the more laughable. Early on in the pandemic, these platforms pushed back against the possibility that the virus itself may have been a part of some sort of lab leak, even going so far as to censor any such discussion.  Over a year later, and as health experts began to suggest this yes, this was truly a possibility, the premature nature of…
