“Khalek and Blumenthal have done great reporting exposing US support for the rebels that has not to my knowledge been discredited. I think both sides are evil – the goal is to create a refugee flow to exploit for labor and outrage.”
“Exposing” – I hope you know that the rebels are the only ones, besides ISIS, the US has intentionally attacked in Syria. It has never once attacked Assad’s regime or its allies deliberately. Anyway, even if the US was supporting the rebels, why should that automatically mean the rebels are bad and evil?
Both sides are not evil. Only one of the sides (Assad’s) has killed about 95% of all of the non-combatants killed in Syria, coming in at around 190,400 civilians.
As for the rest of your comment, thank you. She was rightfully barred because her views on Syria make her views on Palestine worthless. As Malcolm X said, injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. She speaks from one side of her mouth protesting the oppression and tyranny Palestinians and blacks face, but from the other side, she defends Assad and defames his opponents even though Assad and his allies have been worse in 6 years than Israel has been since its creation. And I despise Israel fwiw.
