Federalist Publisher Ben Domenech railed at legacy media’s obsession with branding the right as antisemitic throughout the four years of President Donald Trump, which blinded coverage of growing support for anti-Jewish discrimination on the left.
“One of the things that came out of the corporate media’s coverage of the last four years of former President Donald Trump was this false depiction that the right was in some way dominated by antisemitism… and that the left basically was innocent as the driven snow,” Domenech said, as cases of antisemitism spike in the wake the worst Palestinian-Israeli conflict erupting this month in decades. “I think that that really took them away from paying attention to a rise in antisemitism on the left that has been apparent to anybody who was looking at what politicians were saying in the last several years.”
Domenech highlighted the absence of forceful condemnation from a White House supposedly obsessed with social justice.
“This is a situation that I think is getting out of control, it seems to me the president ought to be speaking to it, and yet, we really haven’t heard a condemnation from him,” Domenech said. “Why is it so hard for Joe Biden to criticize some of the extreme elements within his own party, who represent so much of a threat to Jewish Americans today?”
