D.C. Council Member Who Believed That Jewish Bankers Control the Weather Leaves Holocaust Museum Tour Early After Bizarre Observations

Trayon_WhiteWe recently discussed the bizarre statement from D.C. Council member Trayon White Sr. (D-Ward 8) that Jewish bankers controlled the weather.  White’s stupefying stupidity became an international sensation, which he did not help with his apology: “I have spoke [sic] to leader and my friends at Jews United for Justice and they are helping me to understand the history of comment [sic] made against Jews.”   Putting aside the need for a refresher, White sought to mollify his critics with a visit to the Holocaust Museum which has made the situation only worse with bizarre questions and an early departure.

Brooklyn_Museum_-_Climbing_into_the_Promised_Land_Ellis_Island_-_Lewis_Wickes_HineNew York Gov. Andrew Cuomo had a curious moment this week when he announced “I’m undocumented.

Conservative Protester Shouts Down Comey At Book Event

440px-Comey-FBI-PortraitI have always marveled at the relativism of the most extreme voices in our public discourse.  As shown just yesterday, I have regularly criticized the failure of schools to discipline or expel students who prevent conservatives from speaking on campuses. This included my criticism of Howard University students who stopped former FBI Director James Comey from speaking.  Yet, Laura Loomer, a conservative activist, believed it was her right to stop others from hearing from Comey at an event promoting his book in New York City.  I felt Comey handled it well but it is beyond me how people like Loomer believe that they can prevent others from speaking or listening to opposing views.  While I have been highly critical of Comey, including a column out this morning, he has every right to be heard and these people came to hear him — not Loomer.
