Activist Nandini Jammi who makes her living trying to deplatform media outlets she doesn't agree with has been coming hard for The Post Millennial, and she's doing it entirely with lies and defamation.
Her accusations are that the outlet promotes "neo-Nazis" and transphobia. The Post Millennial is owned and founded by a Jewish man, and features a diverse group of heterodox writers, including LGBTQ+ journalists.
But for Jammi's intended audience, cowardly corporations and companies that cower in fear of the woke mob, none of that matters. Instead, they choose to believe her lies and do as they are told, pulling ads from The Post Millennial rather than engage the far-leftist activist's wrath.
On Thursday, she went after @equinox gym, owned by Related Companies, a property and real estate developer in New York. Equinox folded instantly rather than look into the lies they were told, simply believing them to be true without contacting The Post Millennial.
However, in slandering The Post Millennial as Nazis, she featured a photo of Ari Hoffman, the outlet's West Coast Editor. Hoffman, an Orthodox Jewish man, radio host, journalist, and podcaster quickly took offense to being called a member of a group that had ruthlessly slaughtered much of his family.
Equinox responded quickly, apparently believing, too, that Hoffman is a Nazi.
But Hoffman was not blind to the defamation, and called Jammi, and Equinox, out on the lies.
If Ari Hoffman is a neo-Nazi, he is the most Jewish one around. Hoffman has reported on Antifa activists in his home town of Seattle, and called out the lies and misinformation spewed by far left activists and politicians, from locals like Kshama Sawant and Nicole Thomas-Kennedy to feckless Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and the inept Washington Governor Jay Inslee.
He has hosted former President Trump on his radio show, defended Israel, and tried to protect the city of Seattle from dangerous policies that increase crime and lower the quality of life for his family and others in the Pacific Northwest.
"Both Ari and I are the descendants of Holocaust survivors," said owner of The Post Millennial, Matthew Azrieli, who co-founded the site along with a Muslim man in 2017. "We are profoundly disturbed that people like Jammi have appropriated a largely Jewish tragedy in order to silence Jewish voices and, in a page right out of the Third Reich, to boycott a Jewish-owned business."
Activists who attempt to deplatform and silence media companies that they do not agree with do not want a free and open exchange of ideas. Instead, their aim is to have a media marketplace that delivers a single message—one that aligns with their own personal political ideologies. They want to rip the tongues out of anyone who doesn't along with their far-leftist progressive perspectives.
To accomplish their nefarious goals, activists like Jammi paint anyone who disagrees as racist, calls them Nazis despite obvious evidence to the contrary. The companies that Jammi targets roll over and do what they are told for fear of being called names themselves.
Activists seek to turn off free speech for North American media companies. Jammi wants to deplatform The Daily Wire, Breitbart, The Federalist, Bongino Report, Fox News, and The Post Millennial among others that she disagrees with. Her weapon of choice is public shaming.
Defending The Post Millennial, and all conservative outlets, New York Post columnist Miranda Devine said that "If center-right media outlets such as TPM aren't able to continue reporting without fear or favor, we all will end up flying blind in a fog of delusion."
What began as a campaign against The Post Millennial's editor-at-large Andy Ngo, a crime reporter who is so effective that criminals and those who advocate for criminals seek to silence him, has spread to encompass the entire organization.
When activists were unable to get New York Times bestselling author Ngo to stop doing his work, they decided to target one of the outlets he writes for—the smallest one that could be perceived as the most vulnerable.
It's sad that so many of these companies targeted by Jammi are governed by the fear that she propagates and encourages. Companies are too cowardly to face social media bullies, but readers make up their own minds, and have been supporting The Post Millennial, through contributions, subscriptions, and simply by reading and sharing the content that we produce.
