Sen. Chris Coons Throws Aaron Maté Off a Train
Aaron tells the full story of his confrontation with the senator
Apparently the Rules-Based Amtrak Order trumps the International one, and this week Useful Idiot Aaron Maté violated it, in a move that a bipartisan coalition of slimy officials are calling worse than the genocide of Palestinian children.
When Aaron boarded a train from New York to DC, his assigned seat just happened to be directly across from one of Joe Biden’s closest allies in Congress, Delaware’s Chris Coons. So he (in a “subdued voice,” per quiet car regulations) asked the senator why he won’t support a ceasefire in Gaza.
He was thrown off the train at the next stop. Hear Aaron recount the full story in today’s Thursday Throwdown.
The outpouring of support for Coons from right-wing papers like the New York Post and pundits like Hugh Hewitt put on display our government’s unwavering bipartisanship when it matters most: the US’s stringent loyalty to the military industrial complex.
But the Israel madness doesn’t stop there. The IDF has been busy making fake videos where they pretend to find Hamas weapons in hospitals, clearing their path to bomb more babies in incubators. Former US ambassador to Israel David Friedman will call you a Holocaust denier if you dare ask for evidence to support his genocidal claims. And Jake Tapper is very worried for the well-being of Jewish students at MIT, who very much don’t like to hear about the thousands of murdered Palestinian children.
So hitch a ride with Katie and Aaron, who are taking a sickening tour through this week’s media madness.
It’s our Thursday bonus episode. Let us know in the comments what corporate media monologues, interviews, or anything else you want to see on the next Thursday Throwdown.
