Today the New York Times ran an oped about the Million Man March and Louis Farrakhan. If you read the oped and knew nothing about Farrakhan, you would think he was a gentleman. (Thread)…
More than that. You'd think he was deferential to women: "Amid critiques that the Million Man March was exclusionary and sexist, he took the advice of the women."

Let's take a look at some of Louis Farrakahn's views.
"Pedophilia and sexual perversion institutionalized in Hollywood and the entertainment industries can be traced to Talmudic principles and Jewish influence. Not Jewish influence, Satanic influence under the name of Jew." He said that in 2019.
“Brother Barack, under Jewish influence, trying to introduce same-sex marriage to African people, and the Africans say, ‘We don’t have nothing like that in our history. We can’t identify with that.’ . . .
Then the Western man says, ‘If you want this money from the World Bank or the IMF, you have to make a law that allows same-sex marriage.’ Look, brothers and sisters, this is satanic.” He said that in 2018.
“God did not create man to lay with man. But you are being chemically programmed against your nature, you don’t know it.” He said that in 2018.
Farrakhan: “I think Hillary Rodham Clinton is a part of, if you trace her lineage, she go right back to the Rothschilds. Her daughter is about to marry a Jewish young man. This is no accident.”
He believes 9/11 was an inside job: “Osama Bin Laden didn’t destroy the Twin Towers. That was a false flag operation to take the world’s attention away from the great disunity in America after George W. Bush stole the election.”
There are hundreds more like this. When The Times ran the infamous anti-Semitic cartoon, the issue was not that editors were hardened anti-Semites. It's that they didn't even *notice* it. This shouldn't surprise. It's part of a worldview in which Jew hate does not count.

Dear @NickCannon,

In Judaism, as you may know, we have a concept of teshuva. A lot of people translate the word as repentance, but it means a return. As in: a return to one's higher self, to one's ideals, to the good, to righteousness. (1/4)
Teshuva, or the possibility of change, “precedes the world” says Pirkei Avot, the Sayings of the Fathers. The Talmud teaches that “the place where the repentant stand is even greater than where the entirely righteous ones stand.”
That is how deeply my tradition values those that try to change for the better—a powerful lesson in our frequently merciless age. I thought of all of this as I read your thoughtful post about my book, "How to Fight Anti-Semitism."…

The civil war inside The New York Times between the (mostly young) wokes the (mostly 40+) liberals is the same one raging inside other publications and companies across the country. The dynamic is always the same. (Thread.)
The Old Guard lives by a set of principles we can broadly call civil libertarianism. They assumed they shared that worldview with the young people they hired who called themselves liberals and progressives. But it was an incorrect assumption.
The New Guard has a different worldview, one articulated best by @JonHaidt and @glukianoff. They call it "safetyism," in which the right of people to feel emotionally and psychologically safe trumps what were previously considered core liberal values, like free speech.

For many of us, this will be the first Passover seder we've held in imperfect times. I find myself thinking of Jews in other times and places who found ways to celebrate in truly dire circumstances. At my family's seder tomorrow, we're going to talk about them. (Thread)

Thread: The latest episode of @Vice on Gaza + Jerusalem truly deserves a proper fisking. But just focusing on the segment's treatment of Hamas, for a moment.
"The party is very popular," the reporter tells us from a rally. I wonder why. Perhaps Gazans feel pressure to show their fealty to Hamas? Because this is their idea of justice for suspected "traitors."…
At another point in the segment, during a celebration of a Hamas anniversary, the reporter meets children dressed up in camouflage and carrying toy machine guns.
