Jewish Rage

This week's edition of NEWSWEEK has a somewhat disagreeable cover story.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough joined in the backlash this morning, saying the entire Muslim world hates the United States “because of their religion.”

I just got onto the web and came across a link at Eschaton to Think Progress's post on Scarborough's breathtaking announcement.

Wow. And OMG, what is with these pundits? What is with most of my nation's leaders....

Ayaan Hirsi Ali's trashy article "The Last Gasp of Islamic Hate" is hopefully her last gasp of Islamic hate. Ali's article is mostly about Ali, and how terrible Muslims are, without even a barest of mentions of the many terrible iniquities imposed on them by the Christian hate that has killed, injured and tortured so many Muslims just for the fun of it, and for profit.

@2 '.... what is with these pundits?'

They all got the same memo. Muslims are backward, fanatical and intolerant. Keep repeating.

People are unashamed to be associated with idiots and to be educated by venal morons who will say anything for a few bucks and a weak smile from The Man.

Part of the problem is that ours is an anti-intellectual culture, one in which reading a work of history would be considered a waste of time better spent tanning, 'working out' or masturbating.

Then there is the complete absence of moral courage; the conformity which has long been the most notable characteristic of American society. A society which purports to admire individuality, initiative and critical thinking can not, in actual fact, bear them. Hence the Solid South, in which government has, for four hundred years, openly persecuted its working people. Who are despised not for their ignorance or vulgarity (qualities of which their rulers are unassailable champions) but for their inability to pick pockets and cheat.

And now this poisonous culture, famous for its lynchings, racism, Jim Crow, hypocrisy, fraud and barefaced lying- the culture from which C20th fascism emerged- roams the world looking for pools of corruption which will host it and feed it. And there are plenty of them, everywhere.
America is the bitch in heat that Brecht smelled. Her progeny are genocidal wars, death squad states, disease and famine.

I love it. A fellow cynic, as jaundiced by our societal values as I have become.

Really, we all should hang our heads in shame. This clusterfuck is a product of our own apathy and ignorance. We stood silent while the thieves and liars infested the bloodstream of our governing body. Its too late now to do anything but watch the implosion. It ain't gonna be pretty.

Hmm @yoni which means penis in Hindu I believe, I would say one ambassador and a couple of marines at least. Who knows maybe another USS. Liberty by Thursday. Ill be fiddling on the roof if you need me Happy Rosh Hashana, Mazel Tov!

@Yoni 11
"How many Americans". Exactly the hasbara message for the deluded people bevin #7 talks about. ( Not many of those here, however.)Tell me, what about "How many Palestinians ... (all kinds of questions)"?
You folks provoke the Muslims first in their most cherished beliefs, later to brag about their supposed inferiority. Truly an Israel firster.

"How many Americans were killed by Jews this week?"

Well, I dunno. You guys are good at covering your tracks, so it will be a while before we find out. I do know the FBI, taking the long view of terrorist attacks on US soil from 1980 to 2005, says Jewish extremists committed 7%, while Islamic extremists committed 6%.

Things like the Newsweek cover show that the Anti-Muslim movie "Innocence of Muslims" was not born in a bubble. Major magazines on the newstands are promoting this racist Anti-Islam hysteria. I've been suprised by how little talk of the Anti-Muslim movie mentions its similarities to the Nazi movie "The Eternal Jew".

@11, better question: how many Jews have Zionists turned into ex-Jews?

Posted by: ruralito | Sep 18 2012 13:39 utc | 19

An even better question is, how many Democrats has the antisemitic "Left" turned into Republicans?

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is one half of the Newsweek anti-Islam tag-team along with her hubby Niall Ferguson:
Obama's Mideast Meltdown
The president fiddles as the world burns.

. . .Remind you of anything? Try this: “I’ve come here ... to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world, one based on mutual interest and mutual respect, and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles—principles of justice and progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings ... Let there be no doubt: Islam is a part of America.”

That was from a speech given by President Obama in Cairo on June 4, 2009. Funny how small a difference 30 years make. Same old pious hopes for respect, reverence for law, and tolerance. And, in return, the same disrespect, illegality, and intolerance. The embassy in Tehran then, the consulate in Benghazi now.

That's a good one #11,some of US count the dead on 9-11,the dead from Iraq,Afghanistan,Somalia,Libya and further,the USS Liberty and Rachel Corrie as victims of Israel,not Islam.
Divide and conquer,the Zionist playbook,and it works well on the misinformed American sheeple.

@Yoni - b isn't accusing Jews of anything; on the contrary, he is effectively exposing the unrecognized racism of the MSM, by changing the target in a way that everyone can perceive as racist

An even better question is, how many Democrats has the antisemitic "Left" turned into Republicans?

oh please jimbo, if you'd like to argue a clean break had nothing to do with israel, or nothing to do with influential neocons continually meddling in our FP, have at it. but let's not pretend all this islamophobia and anti arab muslim brainwashing is divorced from our FP (massacring muslims) or an embedded group of radical jews and their ilk have not made a dent on the psyche of this country. while romney is attempting to mouth dan senor's instructions on an issue he knows nothing about (WB borders syria! and tel aviv!) and politicians can't get in office sans pandering to lobby money and the PM of israel is lobbying americans to attack iran (same cohorts/pundits who drove us up to iraqs door)..and you think it's antisemitic to point that out? you think republicans don't notice this crap either? please. it's happening. there are definitely some jews in the mix responsible for all the killing carried out by our government and the payback is american death. definitely.

i didn't bring it up yoni did looking to score cheap racist points. the little caveat of " How many Americans were killed by jews.." as if drone attacks on gaza were not happening all the time. so jews kill all right. i read something yesterday that might interest you:

"Israel has enough power in this country to get the California House of Reps to pass a bill criminalizing criticism of Israel. Maybe that is why Israelis and their supporters don’t riot."

playing the anti semite card gets real old real fast and a lot of ordinary people are starting to notice. lots of people were watching the dem convention and heard all those screaming 'ney'. that's not anti semitism that's 'jerusalem is illegally annexed' and i am not the only person thinking iran is a very dangerous distraction/diversion for israels expansion. so, if we attack iran..Dowd and i will definitely not be the only people noticing americans are dying for you know who. the fact no one physically stabbed anyone in the back is irrelevant.

@20, nah, your question is lame. Are you sure you know how the superior case works? Jews so outraged by "The Jews"(tm) that they forswear their own jewdihood is a lot more profound than somebody switching from vanilla to chocolate.

Posted by: ruralito | Sep 18 2012 19:14 utc | 27

The bottom line is that Israel is doomed, not by anything the Palestinians or Iranians will or could do as neither is powerful enough to even slightly wound that country but by the actions of the Zionists themselves. After all, if only Orthodox Jews are having more than the 2+ kids necessary to expand the population and Aliyah (fewer olim) is down and yerida (more yordim) is up, how can a Jewish state be expected to survive? The prime factor in all this is the low number of children per family amongst non-Orthodox Jews.

"How many Americans were killed by Jews this week?"

Considering that our foreign policy is largely determined by a bunch of shameless whores in Washington DC that trip over each other in their race to suck Israeli dick, I would say that its very hard to answer that question. If it wasn't for AIPAC's pimping, would we be embroiled in a our current state of war in the middle east?

But, uh, ya might wanna ask Emily Henochowitz or Tristan Anderson about how much respect these jackboots in the IDF have for American citizens.

BTW, with the Liberty fit in your ass?

Bend over.

Good to find you in top form, POA, and as usual, I completely agree with your position.

Posted by: arthurdecco | Sep 19 2012 14:18 utc | 30

Why should [pro-Israel] Jews be enraged? They are able to get the California House of Reps to pass a law making criticism of Israel illegal. They don't have to riot.
