'It Must Be Taken Down': Dem Rep Jerry Nadler Demands Matt Taibbi Article Be Censored

Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is so drunk on power that he is now ordering news outlets to stop reporting things he and ADL head Jonathan Greenblatt don't like.

In an article from popular left-wing writer Matt Taibbi shared last week by the National Post titled, "Congressional Democrats heroic fight to save the rich," Taibbi pointed out how New Jersey Democrat Josh Gottheimer is one of a "group of congressfolk" threatening to hold up Biden's infrastructure bill if it doesn't include a giant tax cut for wealthy people.

"The Harvard man and Alpha Epsilon Pi brother is a member of the so-called 'SALT caucus,' a group of congressfolk threatening to hold up Joe Biden's infrastructure bill if it doesn't include a full repeal of a Donald Trump-imposed $10,000 cap on deductions of state and local taxes," Taibbi reported.

Though the article does not explicitly say that Gottheimer is Jewish, Alpha Epsilon Pi is a Jewish fraternity and merely pointing out that Gottheimer attended that fraternity is "anti-Semetic" according to Jonathan Greenblatt.

"Mentioning a member of Congress was in a Jewish fraternity in college in an article about tax policy is wholly irrelevant and plays into classic #antisemitic tropes about Jews and money," Greenblatt said. "The @NationalPost should edit this article ASAP."

Nadler joined with Greenblatt to declare the article "must be taken down."

"The very powerful 15-term Democratic Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee yesterday decreed that Matt Taibbi's article on Democrats' maneuvers to defend rich donors 'must be taken down,'" Glenn Greenwald responded. "Think of whichever politician you dislike most & how you'd react if they did that."

The National Post did not edit the article and did not censor it despite their demands.

It will be interesting to see if Greenblatt launches an ad boycott against them the same way he's now targeting Tucker Carlson and Fox News to demand Tucker be taken off the air.
