I could watch this all day.
While appearing on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show The Ingraham Angle, Code Pink co-Director Ariel Gold was tasked with defending her connections to anti-Semitic people such as Louis Farrakhan, as well as her own anti-Semitic rhetoric.
First, Gold attempting to turn all the accusations of racism and anti-Semitism on Donald Trump and his administration as well as defend anti-Semitic figures such as Linda Sarsour, which the Anti-Defamation League has condemned for her anti-Semitic comments. Gold said that the Anti-Defamation League was out of line for wasting their time on Sarsour when they should be focusing on the white supremacists in the White House.
One of the people Gold listed was Sean King, who is a Black Lives Matter activist. She meant Steve King but didn’t seem to remember that.
Conservative commentator Michelle Malkin stepped in to break the awkward moment and proceeded to demolish Sarsour, the anti-Semitic left, and Gold herself.
“I think that Ariel Gold, in particular, has a lot of gall talking about repairing relationships with people when Ariel Gold and Code Pink itself have been so much responsible for the toxic anti-Semitism and hatred of Israel that we’re seeing,” said Malkin. “In fact, Ariel Gold has uttered the same phrase that Marc Lamont Hill got fired for.”
The incident involving Marc Lamont Hill that Malkin is referring to here is CNN’s termination of their contract with Hill after he was seen using Hamas phrasing and essentially urging violence against Israeli people.
Ingraham then prompted Gold to speak, who immediately corrected her last gaffe and pointed at Steve King as a white nationalist. Malkin interjected and dinged Gold again.
“Why don’t you talk about your own racism?” Malkin said as Gold continued.
Arial continued to hammer home the fact that Hill did nothing wrong in his comments, sparking both Ingraham and Malkin to ask her to answer for Hill’s close relationship with Farrakhan and his obvious anti-Semitic statements. Gold continued to avoid their questions and instead focused on the living conditions of Palestinians in Israel.
Ingraham once again attempted to confront Gold about Sarsour and the Women’s March’s ties to Farrakhan. Gold said she herself had no love of Farrakhan, but continued to defend Sarsour as if she wasn’t at all an anti-Semite.
This prompted Ingraham to get angry.
“You have no answer for this, Ariel!” said Ingraham slapping her desk.
