Dear Bari,

How about interviewing Yuval Lebin?

He has a new book, “American Covenant”.

Here a a thinker with solid ideas on how the country move forward.

Living in this country for many decades now has taught me many things. One of them is that people who are successful in business and extremely rich are not necessarily well educated, intelligent in general, realistic or well spoken. Being at the right place at the right time has a lot to do with "making it" in this country. Sheryl is a fine example of this. I was incredibly bored with this interview. I noticed myself just mentally checking out after so much repeating of the same thing, the hypocrisy and dodging questions and continuous deflection. Such a downer after a trio of incredibly interesting people interviewed by Bari were so amazing. I will not see her documentary. Maybe a documentary on how she was part of stifling free speech during Covid on Meta I will watch. And indeed, at the end when she says something like " if things were different, they would be different"???? Huh? No thanks to you for making any kind of impact with your fortune behind you to do anything about that.

“NYC Progessives realize they have a jew-hate problem: Today, we see that the revolution Pasternak and Lander and AOC fomented is eating its own. But that doesn’t mean it’s deserved”

Deserved? It may not be deserved, but it was well earned!! Promoting woke, anti-liberal, neo-racist ideology has consequences. Their way out... find humility, acknowledge the cult they joined, and then to help tear it down!

Oh, Ms. Sandberg, how are you so clueless about what has been happening in education and the middle east simultaneously. You need to lose a bit more of your progressive "feelings " before there can be change. Perhaps your documentary is a start. I am glad you made it.

Today we learn that Biden is giving 400 million to Gaza. How will this money not prolong the war, directly embolden Sinwar, and seed more death of Israelis

(IDF and citizens since Hamas doesn’t distinguish) AND Palestine’s civilians?

Biden refuses to dissociate from his radical progressive left.

That supporting Biden is a bind for the Jewish left is surely sad, but more importantly, it is literally dangerous

for Israel and the state of Jewish America.

Hillary Clinton endorses Jamaal Bowman’s opposition:

Nellie's War Queen's endorsement of Latimer over Bowman is setting off alarms all over DC.

Fire alarms but alarms nonetheless.

One of the many problems with the far left views is that those who are getting attacked on the far left, from the far left, for some reason are still holding their same views. There seems to be a belief that ‘they will come to their senses once they see how righteous and left I am’. It seems silly, a bit delusional, and frankly somewhat pathetic. (The literal definition of pathetic with only a smattering of the derision included (but it’s there, too).). I disagree with Bari that we shouldn’t hold a mirror to the Jewish community who continues to support the lunacy of the far left, with crayon writing on it that says “This is absolutely a causative part of the problems you’re having now.” If Jews want to be supported and protected, the Democratic Party is not your friend. Make your peace with that and stop voting for your own demise. It’s confusing to me, plus insanity and even a little suicidal to keep doing the same things you’ve done for decades.

Dear Bari,

Perhaps the salient after-effect of Sheryl Sandberg’s important film is that it opened HER eyes to the growing pernicious and incredulous reality of the intense tandem hatred of Israel and Jews. Sandberg shows her film to audiences in the US and Europe, accompanied by witnesses from the Nova Festival, and the response is mostly…crickets.

Bari, you boldly asked Sandberg about Michelle Obama’s silence on the rape and hostage taking of Israeli women. She dodged the question. You asked If she is still donating to Harvard. She dodged the question. Sandberg played the left’s equality rule in making sure to add that it isn’t just the liberal and progressive left protesting with their vial slurs, ‘it’s the right too’. Let’s get statistics on that.

The progressives, proudly anti-Semitic, abhor Biden for not chanting along with them, even as he genuflects for their votes. Here Sandberg did answer you directly. She donates to Biden and she will vote for him. It’s meaningful that Sandberg said (a few times) she does not believe her friend will have to hide her. It could be that the silence and lack of outrage after her film showings make her belief seem naive.

The Sheryl Sandberg interview was STUNNINGLY important...remembering I was first introduced to Bari Weiss with her widely published resignation letter to the NYT...which somehow promptly inspired me (as a Christian woman) to buy her prophetically relevant 2019 publication "How to Fight Against Anti-Semitism"...there are SCORES of us all around the world praying for Israel, and God WILL win this battle as it is definitely a spiritual one!! There's NO other explanation for the cryptic crickets chirping amidst the screams...but God will NOT forget the apple of His eye, no matter how jealous, insecure or vengeful this wayward world may be...

I thank you for your support. Right now being a Jew is very lonely

Please stop calling idiots a 'Karen' when their idiocy goes public. There are many useful adjectives for their behavior that does not name real people. But otherwise, you are doing an awesome job! Thanks and keep up the great work.

Do you believe that your entreaties will really have any affect on society’s use of the now engrained ‘Karen’ in our lexicon?

Should have stuck with Uganda.

I hear a good amount about white privilege but not much about white guilt.

White guilt afflicts mostly wimpy, 30 something white women that routinely vote for democrats.

They don’t discipline their kids but expect strangers to abide by their every whim, no matter how ridiculous.

Their precious kids must be sheltered from micro aggressions but they want normal people jailed for exercising their rights.

They are equally afraid of words as they are guns.

They will ruin the United States.

Going to church as an agnostic? Tried that a few years ago. They had a series on marriage. My wife and I thought….let’s give it a try.

First session: good music, non stuffy pastor, serious subject addressed in a sensible way, with some good humour mixed in. My wife and I thought: well this ain’t so bad!

Second session: …. Gays are sinners….. yeah ok, we’re out.

Man, these comments make it very clear: Sheryl Sandberg is not a leader.

I certainly think some HOAs are overbearing. But parking cars (which may or may not be in operable condition) all over the property is precisely the kind of esthetic disaster that HOAs are meant to police. Many municipalities outlaw that, but if an HOA is in an unincorporated area, its bylaws may be the only way to ensure your neighbor isn't maintaining a noncommercial junkyard. Do you really want that next door?
