Huffington Post: Strong. Tough. Jew-Hatin'.

Heh.

If Americans are rabidly anti-Semitic as some posters claim, then why don't these Jewish accusers make aliyah and go to Israel where they will feel safe from ugly American and be safe in the arms of their fellow Jews in Israel where you can actually take part in the Occupation and defend the occupied territories with their own blood?

The JEWS are using the REPUBLICAN PARTY to move in on you, and YOU are left DEFENSELESS.

Thanks to Jules, or as I call her, "Stacy."

Some Kidz Are All Right: I had to put in paragraph breaks. I don't know why it is some people can't grok that paragraph breaks are pleasing to the eye and increase readability.

And the opening clause is tendentious, but it gets good from there.

If the Right's political sin is sadism (and it is), then the Left's is narcissism. Too many leftists get high on indignation - turning themselves into righteousness junkies. They no longer reason out their opinions but simply pick sides and fling ad hominem attacks at anyone who disagrees with them while parrotting whatever political position they feel makes them look smartest and most compassionate. All conflicts (current and hsitorical) are reduced to the struggle between a Good Victim and an Evil Opressor.

Current Leftist critics of Israel aren't anti-semites, but they do tend to demonize Isarel in order to maximize their self-righteousness. I suspect they've unconciously transplanted Rousseau's romantic (and needless to say, racist) notions about the Noble Savages and corrupt Europeans into the current political discourse. Arabs = post-colonial non-Europeans= underdog = good. Isrealis = European = imperialist = bad.

This equation is absurd since Israel has a huge population of non-European Jews and a lot of the Arabs are fascists, theocrats, and openly racist. I've learned the hard way that any Leftist who sees the situation as morally complex and advocates a route to peace that doesn't involve the destruction of Zionsim gets called naive or racist by the pro-Palestinian Left, even when (like me) they are appalled by the Occupation and think Zionism was a mistake. Even worse, they insist one of accusing them of anti-Semitism when one hasn't! It's the only response they've memorized. "If someone says your criticism of Israel is unfair, accuse them of shutting down the debate by calling you an anti-Semite." It's enough to make one despair!

No, it's enough to make one either despair or finally have the balls to break with the left.

Everything he says is sort of in the "no shit, Sherlock" category, but it's encouraging to see a lefty acknowledging what is obviously true.

They spend so much time and effort avoiding the obvious truth. It's nice to see one decide it's really not worth all that trouble to swerve and carom and just let himself collide with the truth.

The truth is like sex. It's only awkward, painful, and scary the first time. After that, it's kind of fun.
