Podcast: The assault of John Kass and the hypocrisy of the Left
Chicago Tribune columnist comes under attack from his journalism peers and Left wing extremists who can’t argue facts and can only argue personalities and lies, calling critics of George Soros, the billionaire liberal political funder, “anti-Semitic”
July 29, 2020, Season 2, Episode 7
I did not know that George Soros, the billionaire who uses his money to influence American politics from the left, is Jewish.
Apparently, accusing George Soros of manipulating politics is “anti-Semitic” according to the far left which is attacking Columnist John Kass whose column is being moved under the guise of a reformatting of the newspaper from its Page 2 prominence to deep inside the paper with other columnists.
I don’t read the other columnists. I read @JohnKass but I am not shocked that the only way to smear Kass because of his strong conservative opinions is to call him “anti-Semitic” … they can’t argue the facts so smear him personally to silence him and shame him and put his career on ugly notice.
I’ve known John Kass since he first stepped foot in the City Hall press room back in the Jane Byrne years, and accusing him of being “anti-Semitic” is a transparent cheap-shot intended to demonize him and silence his conservative voice …
Shame of the Chicago Tribune, shame on his critics who can’t argue the facts and have to assault a GREAT WRITER by slamming him with an unjustified and vile smear, shame on the journalists who have to resort to name-calling to counter his powerful voice.
