Former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney on Tuesday accused Israelis and Jews of suppressing free speech after an event titled “Can Black People and White People Work Together to Defeat Our Common Enemy,” namely the Jews, was canceled on X, formerly known as Twitter.
The poster for the event, which McKinney shared to social media, features a Star of David under the word “Enemy” in the title and a picture of a book titled “Jews Are the Problem.”
The event, which the former Georgia congresswoman said she would be watching, was set to feature former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan David Duke, among others, on the 22nd anniversary of the Sept. 11 Islamic terrorist attacks.
“Interesting how the very same people championing ‘democracy’ in Israel (except for non-Jewish Israeli Arabs and Palestinians, of course) are the very same people canceling our First Amendment rights in the U.S.,” McKinney wrote, adding a link to a Haaretz article on the anti-government protests in the Jewish state over judicial reform.
In a follow-up tweet, McKinney implied that Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency conspired with the CIA to perpetrate the terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people.
In June 2021, Jewish groups demanded that Twitter ban the former congresswoman and Green Party presidential candidate after she tweeted an image that implied “Zionists” caused 9/11.
In her tweet, McKinney wrote, “The final piece of the puzzle.” It accompanied an image of the Twin Towers burning reimagined as a jigsaw puzzle—with one piece missing—and the words “did it.” The final piece of the “puzzle” is the word “Zionists” and the photo shows a hand adding that piece into the puzzle.
Other tweets from her have included references to Israel killing Palestinian children and to governments whose “central bank is owned by the Rothschild conglomerate,” which eludes to the old canard that Jewish bankers run the world.
McKinney also previously claimed that members of Congress support Israel because they were being given money to do so and that Israel has committed war crimes.
In 2016, McKinney in a tweet accused Israelis of carrying out that year’s terrorist truck attack in Nice, France, and Würzburg train attack in Germany.
She has also claimed that people were imprisoned for questioning the number of Jews killed in the Holocaust.
McKinney is currently a professor of political science at North South University in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
