On Friday, the ANSWER Coalition organized a protest at the New York headquarters of Fox News’s parent company, accusing the network of covering up genocide in Palestine.
Protesters gathered in the lobby, brandishing Palestinian flags and holding a banner reading “Fox News’ lies cover up genocide.”
Coalition reported on X (formerly Twitter) that “hundreds” of people attended the protest; however, a spokesperson for the New York Police Department told The Hill that there were approximately thirty protesters.
The NYPD took sixteen individuals into custody, according to the spokesperson.
Although these people claim to be opposed to colonialism, their actions suggest otherwise. Instead of attempting to understand the nuanced political and historical context of what they are protesting, they attempt to dominate and occupy other people’s spaces without considering the implications of their actions.
It appears likely that many of these participants lack an understanding of the deeper meaning behind their demonstration.
They’re back! Fresh from their one-night attempted takeover of the DNC in Washington, D.C., a cabal of Hamas-loving protesters somehow muscled their way into the New York City headquarters of Fox News on Friday…
It was, therefore, no surprise that Fox News found itself as one of those targets. They’re the enemy of the left on a typical day; they’re really in the crosshairs right now because they don’t toe the antisemitic line advocated by the pro-Hamas crowd (and many in the Democrat Party).
The Friday incident saw around thirty members of the radically leftist and antisemitic ANSWER Coalition, which has been behind many of the Pro-Hamas rallies in recent weeks, rush the lobby of the News Corp building, home to Fox News. One protestor banged a drum while the mob chanted, “Fox News, Fox News, you can’t hide, your lies cover up genocide.”
The crowd looked very much like every other “from the river to the sea” gathering of recent weeks. Instead of pitchforks and torches, they wield megaphones and face masks. Always with the masks, these brave warriors.
