Medium Is The Message: Ilhan Omar, Social Media, And Making News

Democratic US Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) set off a firestorm on Sunday with a one-line Tweet on a third rail topic. The aftermath continues four days later. Canadian philosopher and public intellectual Marshal McLuhan famously observed that “the medium is the message.” How is messaging changing with the advent of such radically different mediums? Is news/reality accelerating? Ludwig von Mises Institute President Jeff Deist joins the discussion…

Delusional. She doesn’t give a shit about Palestine. She’s just regurgitating what her Muslim leaders tell her to disrupt and divide. There is a reason America is aligned with some nations and not others. Not to mention the hate of the wealthy is getting old. They hate the ppl with money, power and influence. Yet never stop to think about how they are needed to pay for the bulk of the very bills and policies they are trying to pass. What a bunch of immature cunts. You need every Israeli and American billionaire to fund your green deal through unfair… Read more »

Even if Maduro is horrible, who would want the USA to "help?" No one in Venezuela would want us to turn them into Iraq or Libya, would they? I doubt it!

It's sad that it takes Muslin women to give Israel the condemnation is so richly deserves. I don't like Islam but i'm willing to support any person or any group that speaks out fully, and continually broadcasts strong criticism against the Zionist state. That even includes such as Farrakhan and some members of the alt right. White Christians need to wake up. Unfortunately, I'm not holding my breath..

Zionism does not equal Jewish. (fact). Excellent assessment of the current state of (dis) information..yes frightening.

Since when is it antisemitic to accuse a lobbying group of lobbying? Or is this lobby group representing Zionism (a political group in favour of the colonisation of Palestine) and weapons manufacturers a 'protected people'?

Please jump on use of the tag anti-Semitic…Semites are a shared languages group not an exclusive religious group….say what we mean…anti-Jewish or anti-Israel or anti-Zionist or anti-Globalist or….😠

America was and is still Christian and established as such. The talmudic and the Islamic people have no business in our country's and there will never be a blending or acceptance between theise ideologies nor their concepts of social economics. Morons or Criminals are the only ones that propagandize the multiculturalism and fraud at the expense of the white and Christian people's.

Aren't the emperor's new clothes divine? Lets' pretend it isn't what it is. Don't ever tell the truth if you want to be a politician.

I don't really listen to mainstream news much, but when I do, or flip through the radio stations, I think… "do these people actually know what they are talking about?" I watch the Liberty Report because I don't have to question and second guess…"is Dr. Paul telling the truth?"… answer: Of course, Dr. Paul is telling the truth! There are things in society that seem to be spiraling downwards… and yeah, there are lots of things to be worried about, wars, the economy, violations of civil liberties, etc., however given that Dr. Paul is with us, I tend to think… Read more »

Here in America these wretched muslims stand out like a turd in the punch bowl. They pray to their pedophile god muhammad with their stinking asses in the air. They are cowardly clowns and horny rape happy retards, zipper licking pedophiles. Baracka HUSSEIN Obama is a ridiculous unvetted crack smoking homosexual muslim terrorist with a ugly transgendered turd burglar gargoyle for a wife, and IT murdered Joan Rivers!

The reason for why social media is growing huge is because a lot of Americans have seen that we have been lied to by mainstream media. This guys talking about back checking, I wonder if they ask that about mainstream. So thank yourself for why this movement is growing.

People keep thinking antisemitism only applies to Jews, it does NOT only mean having a gripe etc with Jews, it means ANY Semitic people ie Palestinians and other Arabs are also Semitic peoples. Another fact is most of these AshkeNAZI Jews are NOT Semitic people but they're the ones that scream it out every day. As to these FAKE jews changing the definition of antisemitism to mean "israel and Zionism" that is total hogwash. It was Jesus Christ who summed these jews up the best when he called them the "Synagogue of Satan" .

A Muslim congresswoman is slandered as antisemite for criticizing AIPAC which why we must talk about…..Venezuela.

This shows that even Ron Paul's channel is scared to talk about Israel. If the topic was Venezuela, Israel wouldn't be mentioned once, but since topic is Israel, all they have courage to talk about is Venezuela.

The real issue is the fact that the state licenses, regulates, and taxes the press, along with the CIA co-opting them.

Shame on Americans politicians look at the relationship between American and other countries and what is going on in Israel about Africans Refugees, no any TV stations even report this at all, this is Americans, the government and the social media are the same thing. They don't want us to know
