CBS’s Brennan Frets ‘Right-Wing’ Israel will Ban Gay Pride Parades

News & Politics

When people say the inside the Beltway media are out of touch, this is exactly what they’re talking about. On Sunday’s Face the Nation, anchor Margaret Brennan expressed her concern to Secretary of State Antony Blinken that the incoming Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu and his government will ban “gay pride parades.” Considering many Palestinians and Muslims across the Middle East want to behead gays, this deal might not be a bad alternative for the left.  

Brennan fretted to Blinken that Netanyahu has “been allying himself with figures who have spewed anti-Arab, anti-gay hate as well as discrimination against nonorthodox Jews. One of them wants to cancel gay pride parades,” and “at least two have called for mass deportations of Palestinans. Including the man who may head Israel’s police force.”

This led Brennan to ask “doesn’t this make up really jeopardize your intention to have peace in the region?” 

Maybe Brennan should ask the same question to the leader of Palestine who holds the same views (and worse) that Netanyahu and his allies allegedly hold.

Blinken’s response was surprisingly decent: “we have worked and will continue to work with Israeli governments of every kind just as Israeli governments have worked with American administrations of every kind.” 

He added that “our focus is less on personalities and more on policies.”

Brennan couldn’t get over her apparent hatred of Netanyahu and doubled down on her attacks against his incoming government: “But this extreme right wing government as it has been described put together does complicate your relationship,” she cried.

“Because then you also have to spend time talking about not canceling gay pride parades, not deporting people. All these policies here. That’s not what you want to focus on. Which is settling peace. A two state solution which is being rejected by many of these figures,” Brennan wailed. 

The leftist media, like their friends in the Democrat Party, has long been heavily invested in giving the Palestinians a seat at the table by lobbying for a “two state solution.” 

As Netanyahu once said: “If Palestine put down their weapons today, there would be no more ‎violence. If the Israel put ‎down their weapons ‎today, there would be no ‎more Israel.”

MARGARET BRENNAN: I want to ask about Israel. Benjamin Netanyahu is on trial for corruption. But right now he’s trying to piece together an alliance to form a government. If he does, he’ll become Prime Minister again. I know you know this. He’s been allying himself with figures who have spewed anti-Arab, anti-gay hate as well as discrimination against nonorthodox Jews. One of them wants to cancel gay pride parades. At least two have called for mass deportations of Palestinans. Including the man who may head Israel’s police force. Doesn’t this make up really jeopardize your intention to have peace in the region? 

ANTONY BLINKEN: Margaret, we have worked and will continue to work with Israeli governments of every kind just as Israeli governments have worked with American administrations of every kind. And we’re determined to do that going forward. Our focus is less on personalities and more on policies. The important thing is what policies does the government pursue. The government, or the incoming government at least, knows our views on a number of these issues. We have an absolute commitment to Israel’s security. That’s not gonna change. And as we always have in the past, we’ll speak directly to each other and we’ll be very clear about what we think and what we believe with our Israeli allies. I’m sure they’ll do the same. And again we’ll focus on policies, not the personalities. 

BRENNAN: But this extreme right wing government as it has been described put together does complicate your relationship. Because then you also have to spend time talking about not canceling gay pride parades, not deporting people. All these policies here. That’s not what you want to focus on. Which is settling peace. A two state solution which is being rejected by many of these figures. 

BLINKEN: I think we can run and chew gum at the same time. 

BRENNAN: So you’re not concerned about this? 

BLINKEN: Again, we’re going to focus on what the government does and as we have with every past Israeli government and as Israelis have with every past administration, we’ll work closely together.
