NBC has been facing condemnation for days following two separate instances of antisemitism on its network. The two incidents occurred in the same week but on different shows that the network aired.

First, it was this week’s “Saturday Night Live,” where “Weekend Update” host Michael Che asserted Israel had only vaccinated its “Jewish half” of the population. American Jewish Committee’s Avi Mayer said it “promoted antisemitic myths” and called on NBC to apologize. He wasn’t the only one.

The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis Israel Director Tamar Sternthal called on “NBC and SNL to apologize for the blatant antisemitic smear, and to make clear that Israel is providing equal access to the coronavirus vaccine for its entire population, Jews and non-Jews alike,” in a letter send on Monday.

“We also continue to call on MSNBC to forthrightly correct the Israel is ‘burning down Palestinian villages’ falsehoods,” she added, referring to an incident earlier this month.

However, NBC has yet to apologize or take any action. It is all too common, say activists and religious leaders concerned about the growing tide of anti-Semitism in America.

Second and finally, it was an episode in the series Nurses, where an orthodox Jewish patient wouldn’t accept a bone graft he needed because it was coming from “a dead goyim leg.”

Rabbi Yaakov Menken wrote that the episode was “classic Antisemitic propaganda of the most vile kind.”

“Congratulations NBC, you’re now officially competing with the Nazis themselves to see who can do this better,” he said in a tweet.

NBCUniversal couldn’t be immediately reached for comment. This reporter spoke to an operator at NBCUniversal who couldn’t provide any contact information and said SNL’s team couldn’t be reached outside of their daily operating hours.

Deadline confirmed Wednesday that the network removed the Nurses episode from its digital platforms, citing a source who said they had been contacted by a number of Jewish organizations “and were keen to have conversations with them about the topic.”

Watchdog StopAntisemitism.org called the episode “viciously antisemitic” and said it was “filled with lies.”

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
