Censorship Chris Hedges Video

Hedges: Stand with Alice Walker — Anti-Zionism is not Anti-Semitism (Video)

Chris Hedges, Alice Walker, and Susan Abulhawa talk about censorship in America.

As censorship is becoming the norm in the United States, Alice Walker, who is a friend of UNAC, a human rights fighter, anti-war activist, feminist and world-renowned Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Color Purple has been invited and then disinvited to the Bay Area Book Festival. This was done because of her consistent stand in support of Palestinian rights. This they claim is anti-semitism. This webinar in defense of Alice Walker and to demand the Book Festival reinstate her was held on 5/3/22.

  1. Pretty good presentation, but too short.

    Here you go, the Zionists and the Jews wanting it all:

    https://thewallwillfall.org/2022/05/03/zionism-in-ukraine-allied-with-nazism-the-history-of-the-great-reset/

    How does Israel and one of the largest and most powerful Ultra Orthodox Zionist organisations merge with Ukrainian nationalism and state-sanctioned Nazism?

    In this deep dive with historian and author Matt Ehret we examine the history of Zionism in Ukraine and the origin of many of the Zionist ultra nationalist groups now occupying Palestinian territory since the Nakba (ethnic cleansing of Palestine) in 1948.

    We look at the emergence of the Chabad Lubavitch sect that was established before Zionism came into existence and has its origins in Ukraine – now with 10,000 emissaries in 100 countries at the cutting edge of Zionist expansionism. This group is believed to be responsible for the majority of the price tag attacks in occupied Palestine, denies the right to return for all Palestinians and leads the ideological war against non adherents of Judaism.

    We make the link between this secular ultra nationalist ideology and consider how it is mutually inclusive of the Ukrainian far right and Nazi elements that now dominate Ukrainian politics, military and police. Matt analyses the Oligarchical power base behind these cults and how it ties into the Great Reset/WEF agenda that is threatening Humanity.

  2. She introduced me to Zora Neale Hurston for which I will forever honor and love her. It is no surprise that she stood up for Palestinians. Alice Walker is a mensch!

    1. Palestine was the historic name of the Jewish nation, restored via the UN in 1948 and renamed Israel. I’m curious, though: Where did you think the Jewish people originated?

      1. @DHFabian
        Israel is the name of the Jewish homeland in the Old Testament, which is thousands of years old. What do you mean that Palestine is the historic name of the Jewish homeland? I don’t think that Palestine is even mentioned in the Old Testament.

  3. If they can do it to her, they can do it to any of us – and will.

    1. No truths, no history, no thought, no dissent. Beware of the rabbi-loving “orthodox and secular” ones. Abhorent.

      Institute for Curriculum Services: How an Israel Lobby Group Infiltrated US Education

      Jessica Buxbaum uncovers how the Institute for Curriculum Services, which boasts of its reach in all 50 states, is twisting the truth about the Israeli occupation in US schools.

      by Jessica Buxbaum

      https://www.mintpressnews.com/institute-for-curriculum-services-ics-infiltrated-american-schools-israel/280375/

      Requested ICS changes to public school textbooks included:

      Replace “settlers” with “communities,” “occupation” with “control of,” “wall” with “security fence,” “occupied territories” with “captured areas,” and “militant” with “terrorist.”

      Discourage students from conducting open internet research, and instead recommend the Anti-

      Defamation League’s website and the JewishVirtualLibrary.org.

      Delete all references to “Palestinian Territories.”

      Change maps to recognize Israeli annexation of East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, instead of classifying these areas as occupied.

  4. It is becoming clear that we have a monitor overseeing our thoughts and opinions. Media is being suppressed, by cutting off support to those sources. Free speech is fleeting unless supported it is manipulation of the people.
    It will take the support for those that show the carriage to withstand rhepumilling of the “Party”.

  5. Mr. Hedges is wrong. Jews are indigenous to that land, the historic Jewish (not Arab) nation of Palestine. The Jewish nation had been attacked, conquered, people slaughtered or driven into exile. Ultimately, the Jewish nation was restored via the UN in 1948, and renamed Israel. It’s a tiny country, roughly 1% of the Mideast region, with the remaining 99% consisting of the many Arab countries – some of which seek a 100% “pure” Moslem Mideast. To call for the eradication of Jewish nation is, obviously, anti-Jewish. It’s absurd to claim otherwise. There has always been that streak of anti-Jewish racism among the US/UK bourgeoisie.

    1. @DHFabian
      Jews hadn’t lived in Palestine for thousands of years. Palestinian land was stolen in order to create the modern state of Israel. The people to whom the land was given and who rule it are EUROPEAN Jews, who treat Middle Eastern Jews like second class citizens. If European Jews wanted a homeland because of what the Nazis did, they should have been given a part of Germany. But that wouldn’t have given the U.S. and western Europe their client state in the Middle East in order to have some control over the oil.

      1. @Jeff
        Jews have lived in The land of Israel for thousands of years. Israeli Arabs, Druze, Jews (European, North African , Middle Eastern, Indian, Ethiopian ) have exactly the same legal and political rights .
        USA and Western Europe had and have enough client states in the Arab world to give them some control over the oil without needing Israel for that.

      2. @alteyid48
        I misspoke, though I still meant what I meant to say. The state of Israel hadn’t existed for thousands of year. You’re correct that Jews have lived in that area for thousands of years, but so have Arabs. The problem here is western Europe and the U.S. stealing Palestinian land on the pretext of giving European Jews a homeland where they don’t belong, but for the actual purpose of creating a client state in the Middle East in order to have at least some control over the oil there. The people who run Israel are European Jews, not Middle Eastern Jews, so it’s irrelevant whether Jews lived in that area and for how long. The European Jews sure didn’t live there.

        BTW, all this stupid fighting because two brothers couldn’t get along!

  6. 0:41 Jeff Mackler simply makes up that the Bay Area Book Festival opinions about Alice Walker are because she’s an anti-Semite because she’s anti-Zionis. He has to say “…or imply” because nowhere is this false claim stated. Chris Hedges also knows this is false, but every once and awhile he feels obligated to negate his other honest and positive contributions with a Holier-Than-Thou purist position, and just making up that the Festival had issues with Alice Walker over Palestinian rights sets up that scenario for him. The facts don’t matter when he goes there. One of many examples, over and over he preaches that a vote for a Democrat over a Republican in a swing state can never be a good strategic move — he is witnessing before god and insists all must vote for the Green Party. Two words: Supreme Court.
    Honesty and journalistic integrity are not at play here: ScheerPost simply puts up everything Hedges offers.

  7. Somehow I managed to miss this. Not only would I have done the seminar; I live in San Francisco. I’ll watch for any further actions. This is too big an issue–free speech no less–not to participate. Nor can the whitesplaining be overlooked. Just another version of the Ivy D mob convinced that their superior “merit” grants them the authority to rule us lessers.

    Probably missed it because I’ve been distracted by a fight with SSA. I can prove my case, but I’m concerned about other low income seniors. About all people physically or mentally impaired who may not have the wherewithal to object to unfair and/or erroneous decisions by bureaucracies.

  8. Thank you to everyone involved in this, amazing talk show. I enjoyed every one that spoke and listening to Alice Walker, was an unexpected positive energy boost and another hero for me to read. I am blessed after smoking for over a half century in my 9th year of quitting, since being diagnosed with a breathing challenge after getting H1N1/Pneumonia on Jan.,9th 2014, and reading out loud helps my breathing as a meditation and oral exercise. Hedges “On Contact” was always a very much welcomed source of info., I could trust and now the Hedges Report is continuing and allowing me to keep my trust. And as a happy senior Grand-Pa of three amazing Granddaughters and three amazing kids, that personal trust again brings a huge thanks for keeping hope a little more alive for their future., and waking up the planet. We desperately need the truth so we can change course when it seems the balance can easily tip either way. Thanks to shows like this, connecting us with one another instead of the other way, we move a little closer to possibly tipping it into the direction where the planet is better off, than the continued daily worse every day.

  9. What Israel has done and is doing to the Palestinians is tragic, insane and exactly the same type of treatment the Germans did to the Jews. They of course would say this is antisemitism because it does not fully support the position of Israel that the Palestinians should be treated like rabid dogs. The last time I looked, planet Earth was comprised of but ONE HUMANITY, but some countries bask in the old mentality of separatism, demonizing others to achieve a certain objective, like the eradication of a People. If humanity is to progress, it will do so as one humanity, supporting the interests of all-equally. This must be done. Anyone who says this is impossible, simply is ignorant of the fact that all humans are connected by the same God Consciousness. God put Earth here for the benefit of all people equally, to advance spiritually, which has been a huge problem due to dark interests, that do not want this to happen. If we do not take care of our own, how can we advance?

      “What Israel has done and is doing to the Palestinians is tragic, insane and exactly the same type of treatment the Germans did to the Jews.”
      This is a lie. Your comment is incredibly ignorant of history .

      1. What the State of Israel, and the USA, is, and has been, doing to the Palestinian people is worse than what was done by the German Nazis, to their victims.
        The German Nazi regime’s crimes were not carried out over the course of 70 years, like the Israeli Nazis have been.
        My allegiance is with the victims of occupation and genocide, not the perpetrators, whether they be Germans, Israelis, or USAsins.
        I am in awe of the Palestinian people’s ability to withstand over 70 years of Israeli occupation, and still fight for their human rights and dignity.
        The USA has virtually destroyed the will of the North American Redman.
        I wonder how long the Palestinian people can keep going, before ending up like their red skinned brothers and sisters.
        I am afraid that I will die of old age without ever seeing justice for these oppressed people.
        That pisses me off, and breaks my heart, at the same time.
        I flippantly suggest that all Israelis and Palestinians be relocated to Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and turn the area known as Israel/Palestine into an uninhabitable wasteland.
        Then there is nothing left to fight over.
        But, I would welcome a less drastic solution should one have a reasonable chance of success.
        After watching this occupation for well over sixty years, I’d really like to see a new paradigm.

      “What Israel has done and is doing to the Palestinians is … exactly the same type of treatment the Germans did to the Jews.”

      Abused people become abusers. So not only is abusing other people immoral, it turns other people into abusers.

  11. Oh, “Israel,” that country (sic):

    There is an ongoing elimination of Christianity in the region where it was born being carried out by Israel and its friends. The United States has been the enabler of much of the change in spite of the prevalence of self-described devout Christians in Congress, many of whom ironically are vocal and even enthusiastic supporters of Israeli “security” policies.

    1. @Paul+Haeder
      Your wealth of quotations is breathtaking!
      I am sure that you have the same trove from Christian and Muslim religious treatises regarding their treatment of Jews!
      Why don’t you share ??

      1. Oh yes, indeed. So much hate in that triumverate of religions.

        Matthew 27:25″ : “May his blood be upon us and upon our children.”

        That passage occurs in the Gospel of Matthew, when the Jewish crowds in Jerusalem are given the option of releasing either Jesus or the prisoner Barabbas – and they choose to release Barabbas.

        “The Prophet said, “If a Muslim discards his Islamic religion, kill him.” (Bukhari V4B52N260)

        “Believers, take not Jews and Christians for your friends.” (Qur’an 5:51)

        “Allah said, “A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of the world, its goods, and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.” (Ishaq 327)

        “The Jews are a nation of liars…the Jews are a treacherous, lying and evil people.” (Ishaq:240)

        “The Messiah, Christ Jesus, the son of Mary was no more than a messenger…say not Trinity. Cease and desist…for Allah is one Ilah (God). Far it is removed from him from having a son.” (Qur’an 4:171)

  12. The right of any and all people to political self-definition is an inalienable, universal and unconditional right.

    Zionism is the Jewish movement to the establishment, realization and maintenance of that right for the Jewish people.

    Regardless of their rationalizations, anti Zionists claim that Jewish people do not have that right which, in the least, falls precisely within the definition of prejudice and discrimination against the Jewish people.

    To claim, than, that anti Zionism is NOT antisemitic is at best ignorant.

  13. @Democracy Gone Astray

    What disgusting crap! Typical for you I guess. People have a right to kill others and take their land? If that’s what you think, I hope it happens to you.

    1. @Jeff

      The crimes of the state of Israel do not negate the right of Jewish people to political self definition. Just like the crimes of various Palestinian militants do not negate the right of Palestinians to the same.

      As far as left-ish Neo Progressive pundits and flock, to negate that right for Jews while demanding it for Palestinians is both clumsy and dumb.

    2. oh, jeff
      this just happened to the Ukrainians and ye don’t give a shite and shill for Putin! how do ye live with these contradictions? why is it okay for putin’s army to kill ukrainians and steal their belongings, their grain, their land? yer hypocrisy is breathtaking!

    3. @Jeff
      The UN Partition Plan defined 2 states on the territory of Mandate Palestine. Israel accepted it. The Palestinian Arabs and the Arab states rejected it and attacked Israel. They lost. Most of the territory allocated for the Arab state was annexed be Jordan which did not hurry to give it to the Palestinian Arabs, attacked Israel in 1967 and lost.
      Territorial changes are routine after wars ( generally in favour of the winners – the exception being Israel who won the 1973 Yom Kippour War but returned all of Sinai to Egypt) and happened on a great scale in Europe after WW2 for example.

  14. @jeff
    “The people who run Israel are European Jews, not Middle Eastern Jews, ”

    Unfortunately this is not true, as the European origin Jews tend to be the supporters of left/center left parties which are in favour of the two state solution and against the most of the policies regarding the Palestinians.
    Middle Eastern and North African origin Jews ( which by now are a majority of Jewish voters) are overwhelmingly against any concessions to the Palestinians and have kept in power the right wing parties for many years.

  15. I am have been disgusted for years when the hypocritical Jews complain about Anti-Semitism as they preside over a Zionist state committed to apartheid.

    1. @Darrell Adams

      Israel is not committed to apartheid as its Arab citizens have the same political and legal rights as its Jewish ones.
      Antisemitism is real and any person which is not a racist should oppose it, regardless of the actions of Israel governments (which can and should be criticized sometimes).
