Sorting the antisemites from the antizionists.


As if both are not the exact same thing. Bigots and racists from the "right side of history".  At least they are determined to make it "right".

I don't read the Fairfax press (the most non-antisemitic newspapers in Australia -- they are always pre-emptively  denying it) so I missed this.

At the very height of Pillar of Cloud, while Israelis were defending themselves as best they could from attacks on their  civilians including quite deliberately children, without hurting alien civilians, including children used as shields by Nazi inspired terrorists,  Australia's most famous non-antisemitic cartoonist drew this:

The Palestinians are the Jews and the Jews are the Nazis. How very clever. And as for Michael Leunig?

He is Pastor Martin Niemoller himself. What a good Christian. He used to be a Nazi too but after he was imprisoned by the other Nazis and Germany lost the war he stopped.

Leunig proclaims passionately he is not an antisemite. He is a Christian he says and he will swear on his Christian bible he is not an antisemite. Perhaps his Christian bible is the problem.

You are an antisemite Michael Leunig and it is not bitter or spiteful at all to call you on this. It is just terribly terribly sad. He deserves a wider audience.

  1. I wonder when the Jew-Nazi inversion began to pop up on the left?

    I would think probably some time after the 1975 UN "Zionism equals racism" resolution.

    It's actually the most sadistic anti-Jewish rhetorical tactic out there, but I am realizing, more and more, the sadistic nature of progressive anti-Israel / anti-Jewish political discourse.

    This is deadly stuff, for sure, because there's only one thing to be done with a Nazi... as we all know.

    And if the Israelis (Jews) are now the New Nazis the same must be done to us.

  2. RichterScale says "Mission accomplished!"

    But he should look up the term "Pyrrhic victory."

    Like you said, this development means the Left's move to Marxism has shaken all Jews but the autoantisemitic among them.

    Just like DHonig's Single-Issue Jew cartoon. An oldie from the Second Lebanon War, but only gets truer with each passing day. (DHonig still posts on DailyKKKos. I'm surprised he still hasn't cracked after all this time.)

    1. Oops, wrong thread! This was meant for Daily Kos Comment of the Whenever.

    2. Probably more accurately, neo-Marxism. The stupid bastards just won't die a good death or ever admit disastrous defeat and failure, failure, failure.
