Some liberals are bewildered about my perception of Anti-semitism amongs the far left. I readily point out the word games and absurdity of 167. Do you think that these same liberals would permit word games and conspiracy talk with Gays or Blacks, hell no. However it is okay to paint the war in Iraq as being pushed by Israel and Joooooos.
The statements of Ray McGovern are close to what I heard in NYC regularly. I waited for decent liberals like B (not B personally or Rob ) to join and say this is anti - semitic. Yet when push comes to shove they were silent each and every time . The sole exception was a Salvadoran college student who said " You guys are Red Rednecks lets see Jews run the media brainwash the world and fundamentalist Christians are all stupid and manipulated by the Jews. I would add the disgusting statements often said about Hinduism which is now on the list of official PC bigotry. However don't you even think a single negative word about Islam. There was the myth that Islamic people were persecuted in the USA. The truth was that Jews were six times more likely to be the victims of a hate crime. Gay men were high on the list as well but
behind Jews according to the FBI in 2003.
I pointed this out on the Chemist who said that this was just not true. The Chemist also believes that anti-zionism and anti Semitism are not the same thing. The fact that his comedic friend calls for Jooooos to lay down their arms and be protected by the UN is illustitive. Lets see Israel is a danger to the world but Saddam is peachy even when he launches wars against his neighbors and practices genocide against his people.
People who think Bush, Falwell and Israel are the gratest threat to the world are not based in reality.
Remember those who have yet to share our freedom this fourth of July.
