Why is CNN spreading fake news about BDS? |  – Short answer: Pimping for ad sales and access to White House without seeming too right-wing.

Since the beginning of January, there has been a spike in anti-Semitic incidents in the US: bomb threats have been called in against dozens of synagogues and Jewish community centers while swastika vandalism has been reported in several major cities.Meanwhile, the Trump administration has moved to take white supremacist organizations off the FBI watchlist to focus instead only on “radical Islamic extremism.”This prompted a neo-Nazi leader to celebrate that Trump was “setting us free.”This comes after the Obama administration had already severely curtailed monitoring of potentially violent right-wing extremist groups.But instead of taking the US government to task for indulging and even affiliating with Nazi sympathizers, prominent cheerleaders for Israel are escalating their attempts to repress the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement through smears and legislation.
