Biden tells Jews they’re not safe in America
On Hanukkah, the president says that without the apartheid state of Israel, no Jew in the world would be safe
According to a nearly indiscernible speech from the president of the United States, Jewish Americans are not protected by their own government. Instead, they must look to the foreign apartheid state of Israel to hope for safety. Happy Hanukkah.
And meanwhile, as corporate media focuses only on an alleged spike in antisemitism across the country, video has surfaced of IDF soldiers stripping, blindfolding, and tying up Palestinian men, parading them at gunpoint to humiliate them. Biden of course has no time to comment on this, but State Department Spokesperson Matthew Miller, caught in what he calls a “gotcha question,” is forced to comment.
“We have asked [Israel] to clarify the circumstances,” he says. “And we are going to look to them to provide those details.” So there’s that.
And speaking of US-fueled wars, Ukraine is limping through theirs. This week, President Zelenskyy traveled to the US to meet with his real constituents: the CEOs of top US weapons manufacturers. Just wait until you get to see all their smiling faces in a photo-op with the man who has made them so much money.
In another sign that Ukraine’s efforts really do look bleak, war-lobbyist Antony Blinken is suddenly changing his talking points. The war, apparently, is no longer about helping Ukraine, but it’s now about jobs!
