Aaron Bandler is a staff writer for the Jewish Journal, mainly covering anti-Semitism and anti-Israel bias. Originally from the Bay Area, his past work experience includes writing for The Daily Wire, The Daily Caller and Townhall.

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) announced in a tweet that they have disinvited a person known as Young Pharoah over a series of past anti-Semitic tweets.

The tweets from Young Pharoah, which were unearthed by the progressive group Media Matters for America, included him claiming that there was no evidence that Jews or Judaism existed. He also referred to Jews as “thieving” and alleged that Israeli Jews are censoring social media while promulgating pedophilia. Young Pharoah had been scheduled to speak during a February 28 panel an hour before former President Donald Trump’s planned speech.

CPAC’s tweet stated, “We have just learned that someone we invited to CPAC has expressed reprehensible views that have no home with our conference or our organization. The individual will not be participating at our conference.”

 

Prior to CPAC’s disinvitation of Young Pharaoh, the American Jewish Committee had tweeted that Young Pharoah has “spread horrific antisemitic lies. He has no place on the @CPAC stage. CPAC leadership must denounce his antisemitic conspiracy theories and act to ensure that Jew-hatred has no place at the conference.”

 

The Stop Antisemitism.org watchdog also tweeted, “We’re curious who made the executive decision to invite this antisemite in the first place?!”

Following his cancelation, Young Pharoah doubled down on his tweets.

CPAC is scheduled to take place from February 25-28 in Orlando, Fla.
