As we’ve argued repeatedly, the Indy – which facies itself a progressive voice whose aim is to ‘comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable, and to ‘speaks truth to power’ – has demonstrated its shameful moral confusion when covering acts of violence and intimidation against Jews by activists who are illiberal, anti-democratic and, more often than not, outright antisemitic.
