    He was originally invited to talk at the DCJCC venue until a third party, William Daroff a Senior Vice President for Public Policy & Director of the Washington, D.C. office of The Jewish Federations of North America, exerted his influence on the DCJCC to cancel the presentation.

    The DCJCC has a right to invite whomever it pleases, but in this case it appears that they disinvited David after being presured by a Jewish right wing organization. This sceneario has nothing to do with your scenarios in the comment above. See, they invited him, David, in the first place. David never claimed he had a right to speak there uninvited. In any case an act of cowardice on the part of the DCJCC. And your accusation of whining is the only whining I see going on.

      You don't like that? Repeal the First Amendment.

      You don't like who they invite or disinvite? Get on their Board and start raising funds.

        talking to a table is more entertaining. Read what I wrote and I don't deny that the DCJCC has a right to do what they did. It's not about the what but about the how, capito? You sound like you love Citizens United, you got the money you do as you please when you want. I get it, money rules and that's O.K. with you.

        Get on their Board and start raising funds.
        O.K., got it.
