I’m not sure if I’ve ever read anything quite so mind-bendingly moronic in my entire life. According to Sheldon Drobny of the Huffington Post, the progressive/left-wing/liberal-left’s anti-Semitism isn’t actually the fault of the progressive/left-wing/liberal-left, but rather, you guessed it, the “far right“:
I came to the conclusion that the hostile comments about Israel on these liberal blogs are not coming from true liberals. Most of the anti-Semitism comes from racism and most of the racism I have experienced has come from the far right, not the left. And history shows that the Christo-fascist policies of the right have been responsible for historical anti-Judaism. It is only lately that the extreme evangelical groups have conveniently aligned with Israel now to validate their biblical beliefs. These extreme evangelicals were the most anti-Jewish because of the Passion Narratives of the New Testament. And for my friends in AIPAC, they should be aware that short-term alliances with people who have endemic hatred of you could be disastrous. The early Zionists found this out when they signed a trade agreement with Germany hoping that Germany would deport the Jews to Palestine.
Don’t end up like those Hitler-loving Jews of yore. Whoever they were. The idiocy continues:
So my conclusion is that the bloggers who violently hate Israel and see it in black and white terms are not really liberals. They may even be anti-Semites, but they are not representative of the liberal community that was so active in achieving racial and ethnic equality. It is a contradiction for a true liberal to be an anti-Semite. Furthermore, I would not put it past the right wing to flood the liberal blogs with hateful criticisms of Israel to advance a perception that liberals are anti-Israel or anti-Semitic. And I see Karl Rove?s fingerprints all over this.
Damn you, Karl Rove!
Seriously, I don’t know what to say. This is indescribable stuff. At least the far left is beginning to acknowledge the soft anti-Semitism it’s been exhibiting for some time, even if it’s blaming it all on those evangelicals who, despite all evidence to the contrary, really hate those dirty JOOS.
