Lance Thruster has been dodging a fairly simple question. If a person is a follower of the planets foremost genocidal maniac Mao what does that tell you about their judgment.
This should tell most of us we are dealing with an imbecile.
The communist anti-semitism industry depends on smoke and mirror deception. The game depends on stealth and deception. Communists like Finkelstein play this game of pretending they are mere ordinary Jews outraged by Israel's actions. They fail to mention that they are communists as this would undercut any credibility. In the case of Norman Finkelstein he has his own industry made by exploiting his parents biography to further his extremist Maoist agenda. He caters to rabid Elmer Fudd obsessed anti Semites like Lance Thruster. Other communists play this game and it is a quick route to book sales, easy jobs in higher ed with worthless or no scholarship and loads of publicity. The most obvious question is how communists who are less than 2% of the population are exponentially over represented on University faculty. Commies are quite fond of wanting to skew numbers on race, but when any examination of their own exponential over representation is discussed they feign ignorance.
What does the fact that a person is or was a Maoist say about their judgment? What
does a pattern of decades long well documented mental instability say about the same person? Do actual Neonazis like Zundel and Holocaust deniers like David Irving know their own material? Why do these sorts support Finkelstein? What does a person's crank antics like the widely publicized bit over Kant in Yiddish say about Finky's real agenda. This idiocy was proven wrong as were the rants that Dershowitz did not write his own books. What does a person claiming Jewish leaders look like "Der Shturmer caricatures" or calling noted scholar Ellie Wiesel a "circus clown" or "professional Jooooo" say about Finky.
Demented morons like Thruster ignore the obvious lack of peer reviewed articles and decades long mental instability and see Finky as a victim of a Zionist cabal. This is also good for future book sales and keeping speaking fees high. Has Finky listed what
his income is from speaking fees and book sales.
A response to Junglemom's question I reported the exodus of Venezuela's Jews well over a year ago. I am surprised the number is not higher than 30%. I have met with several Venezuelan Jews in NYC all telling the same story of kidnapping and abuse. People like Retrograde Eye ignore the real anti semitic mania of the Chavez regime while pretending these crimes are something else. The persecution of Venezuelan Jews by the cronies of Chavez is sheer antisemitism. The congo line of professionals running for the door in Caracas is a constant. Apologists like Graeme Striecher pretend that engineers, shop owners and doctors are all class enemies and deserve their fate.
I have interviewed many Venezuelans and never heard a single word of praise for Chavez. I interviewed people from every part of Colombia and have not ever heard a bad word about the government. Obviously people who live in those countries know less about their own countries than communist imbeciles Renegade Eye or Graeme Striecher.
