Flaming Anti-Semitism at OWS But ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN Mum

October 27, 2011 - 9:15 PM

While there are numerous examples of anti-Semitic speech and anti-Jewish signs at the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protests, the liberal media – ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN – aren’t saying much about it. That’s because editorially they support OWS, as do many left-wing leaders, including President Barack Obama, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Cornel West, Susan Sarandon and Michael Moore.

A video by the Emergency Committee for Israel – one of many taken by videographers at the protests -- captured how foul the anti-Semitic speech is at some of the OWS rallies.

The Media Research Center has also captured video of some of the anti-Semitism at the protests. Also, MRC President Brent Bozell and several Jewish leaders have called upon the network news (ABC, CBS, NBC) to report on the anti-Jewish hatred.

Yet the so-called mainstream media are not reporting much of anything about this anti-Semitism. These are the same media that went ballistic when it was claimed – without a shred of video or audio evidence – that Tea Party protestors on Capitol Hill last year had hurled the N-word against Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.).

Typical was ABC World News’ David Muir who reported on Mar. 10, 2010: “And now we turn to late word from Washington tonight about just how ugly the crowds gathered outside the Longworth Office Building had become. We learned that as Congressman Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri was leaving his office, someone in the crowd spit on him. There are also reports of racial and homophobic slurs, one targeting Congressman John Lewis, the famous civil rights champion. ...”

To this day, no one has produced any video or audio evidence that those events occurred, despite the fact that there were many video cameras and still-shot cameras at that Tea Party rally.

The many anti-Semitic incidents at the OWS protests are well-documented and easy to access on the Internet. Just do a Google search.  But don’t expect the editorial apparatchiks in the liberal media to provide much, if any, coverage.  They support the OWS protests, and so does President Obama and the left-wing elite. To borrow from Saul Alinsky, they don’t want to spoil a crisis.
