Since when did the left start caring about anti-Semitism?

Sick bastards! She is one of the most pro israel politicians and the terrorist loving liberals accuse her of being anti-semitic?!?! Makes my blood boil!
Insanity is not confined to the nuts of this world. At this point MSNBC is a joke. Sad but a Joke.
Their Islamist allies aren’t going to like this…..
She used the term appropriately. Context is lost on that effete imbecile..
WTF!! Seriously, WTF!!
So now their angle is that Sarah Palin is an anti-Semite?
This is getting good! I can hardly wait for the next stupid lie!!
I don’t think Sarah Palin is the one digging the hole.
It’s msnbc…come on, I expect no less.
If Palin read the Gettysburg Address, the left would find fault with her. For some reason, the left is prone to ‘Politician-of-the-day-derangement-syndrome’. They seem to be incapable of rationally challenging an opponent without becoming raving lunatics.
I used to believe this was due to their passionate belief in the ‘justice’ of their cause. A self-righteousness that blinded them to their own hypocrisy. Now, I think they are simply proponents of a philosophy so bereft of justification that the only way they can overcome the inherent cognitive dissonance they must suffer is to destroy their opponents and anyone who even acknowledges the humanity of the opposition (see Juan Williams).
Thanks my man, you nailed it. Any religious context is lost on those apostates. Blood Libel is not anti-Semitic, the commission of Blood Libel is. She is very accurate and very succinct.
Is it just me, or does he come across as an intellectual lightweight? Possibly merely inexperienced, but certainly defensive about his column. He begins by … *cough* … Establishing His Victimhood. That’s immature, Mr. Capehart. Grow a pair.
Engaging in “blood libel” is, traditionally, antisemitic; it is a term that refers historically to the false accusation that Jews kill children and use their blood for ritual purposes. Blood libels were popular in medieval Europe, but they actually go back to pre-Christian times.
Sarah Palin, however, did not engage in blood libel; rather, she used the term quite properly, if in a somewhat novel manner, by stating that the mainstream media engaged in (and continue, as here, to encourage) the false claim that “right-wing rhetoric” was responsible for the Loughner shooting.
Thus, Palin was being in no way “antisemitic”—that, too, is a media libel, born of the media’s discomfort at being called to account for its earlier lie.
All the Demorats and liberal goofballs must have gotten the exact same memo on the tragic Arizona shooting. From politicians to lib talkers it’s all the same. Demonize talk radio! Blame conservatives! Blame Rush! Blame Palin! Quite pathetic. Still waiting for the first libtard to blame Bush.
Ridiculous, not only is Palin 100% philosemitic, but that critic obviously doesn’t know what the phrase “blood libel” means!
Meanwhile, BO is busy having his speech re-written, coordinating with the msm to get fellatio approval. Libs pre-plan worship ceremonies… perform voodoo chicken dance on Sarah Palin to insight tears. Doesn’t work… conservative movement grows faster, louder.
Alan Dershowitz disagrees:
The term “blood libel” has taken on a broad metaphorical meaning in public discourse. Although its historical origins were in theologically based false accusations against the Jews and the Jewish People, its current usage is far broader. I myself have used it to describe false accusations against the State of Israel by the Goldstone Report. There is nothing improper and certainly nothing anti-Semitic in Sarah Palin using the term to characterize what she reasonably believes are false accusations that her words or images may have caused a mentally disturbed individual to kill and maim. The fact that two of the victims are Jewish is utterly irrelevant to the propriety of using this widely used term.
What do you expect from blacks who remain on the D plantation.
Sarah is 100% correct. This pile on by the left blaming the evil acts of a murderer on conservatives is a perfect parallel to a blood libel.
Just Wow. These dimwits don’t even know the definition of blood libel? Can’t even look it up on the Internet? http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Blood_libel If this is the best the Democrats can get to work at their flagship publications then no wonder they’re losing so badly.
Wonder how many of those outraged re: Sarah Palins use of Blood Libel are onboard with palestinian propaganda.
It really is interesting (slightly more so than watching mold grow on cheese) to see them all over @ MSNBC jockeying to be the big scum-sucking carp swimming around in the small shallow mud puddle of piss pond that is their network.
For a second thought you were referring to lgf. Oh wait,no diff.
Note, guys, and give me your thoughts …
Palin is known to wear the Israeli/American Flags pin on her lapel. Today she only wore the American Flag pin. I imagine she and her confidants knew the Jewish/Christian part of the “blood libel” history, but perhaps wanted to remove any confusion of reproach by not displaying the Israeli Flag in the video.
Can you imagine having to weigh and measure every damn thing you do and say the way this woman must have to? And while the MSM that barks after her can say and do anything they damn well please, even false accusations and vitriol …
Shame they’ll probably trot out their “Jews” to slander her. You know the same ones that treat the whole Holocaust as a joke and seem to only be “Jews” so they can be the most disgustingly vile creatures with their self degrading speech. Bunch of disgusting false people everyone of them.
Rahm gets to walkback his “good crisis-go-to-waste” philosophy by mumbling through a disclaimer while scowling coldly at the reporter who dared inquire the other day … Obama’s “knife-gun/enemies/get-in-their-face/etc” remarks are shrugged off as the high brow nuances of a brilliant politician … Joe Biden’s remarks are always quickly and closely followed by the MSM’s can of Glade air freshener and a chuckle aimed at a delightful old Uncle you joke should write his own toilet-side book of witty anecdotes.
Sarah can’t do anything right as far as the left is concerned.
She uses a term appropriately and then they go ballistic.
They had to find something anything in her speech to rip her apart on and prop up obozo who will look like the flailing idiot he is.
This from the same news organizations who slams Israel for building in their own country and not catering more to the crazy Muslims.
Sarah’s address was beautiful and heart felt something dear leader no mater how many speechwriter’s he gets will never be able to pull off.
She has pure emotion pouring out through her words.
Sarah is a lovely wonderful caring strong and brilliant conservative Patriot, Mother and Wife. She is one of the best things to happen to America in a long time.
The left is so afraid of her they regularly shit themselves when ever she approaches.
They owe her an apology they need to be asking her to forgive them.
Sarah needs to sue these people.
I used to participate in a Usenet newsgroup. We had one uniting interest and many, many differences in opinion on all subjects. I was one of the few members of the newsgroup who was not pretty far left-wing liberal Democrat. I identified as libertarian, which of course didn’t stop some of the more extreme among the group from tarring me with the “neo-con” moniker when it suited them.
On the evening of September 11, 2001, we gathered together in an IRC chatroom to make sure all our members were accounted for (some lived in NYC), and to process our feelings over the tragedy. After President Bush’s address to the nation, the bashing began. They tore apart everything he said and did, practically down to criticizing the color of his necktie.
Bush-bashing was a favorite sport on the newsgroup anyway, so I finally said to one of the most passionate of these critics, “Is there anything that Bush could say or do that would please you?” He admitted that even if Bush said or did something “right” according to his critics, he personally still could never agree with anything Bush said or did, because he was Bush and in his eyes, that marked him forever as the enemy.
I see the same frothing hatred surrounding Sarah Palin. Although if no matter what she says or does, people are going to hate her, I would think that rather than causing her to have to avoid offending by watching every word or action, it would give her the license to speak truth, no matter what. And I admire that.
P.S. In that group, if you weren’t BLUE BLUE BLUE, then you must be RED and therefore the enemy. The notion of purple did not exist.
MSM: like chickens with their heads cut off…still flapping around, but dead.
MSNBC: Is there no depravity you won’t embrace? Do you think the American people don’t notice your wanton use of slander and (blood) libel in your attempt to personally destroy an ideological opponent?
While I’ve never liked your organization I can say, for the first time, I am ashamed to call you my fellow Americans.
No matter what the left says about Sarah Palin,they will NEVER succeed. They would do well to lift her up, and in doing so would lift themselves and America. Thank you God for giving America this great lady.
How can we expect the MSM to recognize anti-semitic when they hear it when they readily and wrongly use the term “tea bagger”?
Someone needs to expose the current journolist.
Ridiculous, not only is Palin 100% philosemitic,
cool word, very cool
philia.. more of that
that’s a dang good point. Obama’s shoes to face while on the phone with Netanyahu photo-op was no accident either.
good post. Something often lost on liberal progressives is that, no small group of conservatives nowdays were veryliberal/left in the past.
I remember wondering what the heck older people meant likening us (hippies) to communists.. until after I met up with the SDS. (but to be honest, even then it took several years to start dawning on me)
When people say to you that blood is on your hands, what else can you call that?
And it is fucking hilarious that all the sudden the left is concerned about antisemitism
H/T Weasel Zippers just got mentioned here regarding this blog post by ‘The Great One!”
Got a kick out of it!
The Great One would be Mark Levin for those who may not know…he has a talk radio show…and major other stuff.
Gotta love these twisted liberals that are Jewish and saying that Palin is anti-semitic. She may be guilty of using language that she was ignorant about…..more than likely she had no idea that the Jewish community may take offense to the term ‘blood libel’ and what it means to the survivors of the Holocaust or family members of those that survived. Israel and the Jewish community would be hard pressed to find anyone that is more sympathetic and understanding of their cause than Sarah Palin.
It is like Rom Emanuel said, you cannot let any crisis pass without making political hay out of it. It is a darn shame that the libs are going to put on the full court press on this and try their hardest to put the gun in the hands of Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, or any other Constitutional conservative.
Even though it has come to light that this murderer has had the congresswoman on his mind for at least two years which pre-dates the Tea Party movement, but lets not let the facts get in the way of some incredible, unfounded stories from the left. MSLSD and people like Chris Matthews are a bunch of good little robots marching straight down the liberal line…as twisted as it may be.
