The leftist roots of the Black Lives Matter movement have been exposed many times.

Which explains why the movement is attacking charter schools that actually help black children.

Remember the Egyptian Judo Olympic competitor who got his ass kicked by an Israeli athlete then refused to shake hands?

At least had the excuse of being a sore loser.

But this Dutch Muslim Member of Parliament is just a pure hater.

The hijacking of progressive causes by the anti-Israel boycott movement is a frequent focus of mine, as I laid out (for the umpteenth time) recently, BDS is a Settler Colonial Ideology:

BDS itself has become a settler colonial ideology, which imposes itself on other peoples and other struggles, conquers, and subjugates the...

One of the foundational claims of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement is that Israel is a settler colonial project without legitimacy.

It is a claim repeated in mindless rote fashion, as if repeating it ten times in every discussion is a litmus test for being truly anti-Zionist. The claim is...

Hillary supporters pooh-pooh concerns about her health, but with the concussion having caused her to not remember stuff, and repeated instances of coughing and trouble walking, maybe there is a lot of there, there.
