Description

Political scientist Norman Finkelstein has been an active critique of how the Holocaust is used to protect the abuses of the state of Israel. His work and advocacy have made him perhaps one of the most cancelled intellectuals in recent American history. Finklestein in fact is currently writing a book on the cancel culture phenomenon. We will ask Finkelstein about how criticism of Israel gets one cancelled in America and how the nature of ruling class discourse helps facilitate that

Pretty sure Marc Lamont Hill said the "from the river to the sea" thing as a commentator on CNN, not at the U.N., minor correction. If his, uh, career pivot brings new people into Palestine solidarity, great, but he's treading pretty well-worn ground at this point.
