On the July 15 edition of The Ezra Levant Show, Breitbart News Editor-at-Large Joel Pollak joined Ezra to discuss the resignation of New York Times opinion editor and writer Bari Weiss. Before her departure, Weiss penned a scathing critique of the culture at the Times.
Joel shared his take on the situation, and his past relationship with Weiss:
Bari Weiss is a brilliant writer. She and I have actually known each other for more than a decade... We had a few disagreements over some editorial and political issues that are probably not worth getting into, but we basically kept in touch and were on good terms until the Trump campaign came along in 2016.
Bizzarely she started calling me out on Twitter for being supportive of Donald Trump... She was going along with the idea that merely to support the president or to work for a publication that had some sort of tolerance for the president was to be xenophobic, racist, anti-Semitic and so forth...
I wrote to her privately... She sent me an email essentially saying I don't want to have anything to do with you... I'm paraphrasing quite significantly, I don't actually remember the exact words but, 'the person I used to know was not a xenophobic racist who supported Donald Trump.' So, she kind of played this cancel culture game.
Joel also has a brand new book previewing the 2020 US Presidential Election called Red November: Will the Vote Red for Trump Or Red for Socialism that you can buy HERE.
