1. I used to tell my friend Mike Piper that if he wanted to meet a nice Jewish girl he should join a pro-Palestinian organization. I mean it’s not like the FBI probably didn’t have a huge file on him already, so go ahead.
Donald Trump’s traveling Hitler impressionist show is a great illustration of what I mean. As this article shows, his extreme bigotry is so remarkably close to that of the insane Frank Gaffney that it is highly unlikely to be a coincidence. And of course tomorrow a bunch of the Republican candidates are going to speak at a Gaffney sponsored event. However at the latest conference hosted here by the tuyuur at Mantiq al-Tayr, a number of wise birds pointed out that we should not just pick on the collection of racist U.S.-worker-hating millionaires and billionaires (the “haves and the have mores” as Bush II used to say) because that would be so unfair to that motley crew.
For example, let’s take a look at who has been attacking Trump for his pandering to red-neck white Americans whose minds have been poisoned by the Zionist Bullshit being emitted 24/7 by Fox News. Yes, let’s look at a long time favorite topic of this blog, the National Jewish Democratic Council. Here is what they have to say about Trump’s bigotry. (Note to Shas Party members: Red highlighting is by today’s guest editor Hasan Nasrallah.)
As a religious minority that has been persecuted throughout our history, including in the United States, Jewish Americans know just how dangerous religious discrimination can be. It is long past time for leading Republicans, especially Jewish Republicans, to strongly speak out against the bigotry coming from its leading candidate. No single religion is our enemy — terrorists and all those who seek to destroy us are our enemies. The fact that Trump clearly does not understand that shows how profoundly unqualified he is to be the president of the United States. This has got to stop.
Now I can hear you all saying “Mantiq (which you will mispronounce as Manteeeeeeeeeeq) that sounds like a pretty good quote. They are coming down hard on white-trash Trump. What are you bitching about?”
Hasan has asked me to mention the part he highlighted in red. Even a Shas Party member can see that the NJDC has embraced the basic narrative of the “War on Terror” (WOT The Fuck) which can only continue if stupid Fox-fed Americans are continually fed a diet of pure unadulterated organically grown Zionist Bullshit. The WOTTF is the Big Mac of Zionist Bullshit (BMZB).
But it gets worse, with Zionism it always does.
If you go to the left-leaning NJDC website (warning, have that barf bag ready) the first thing you will see is this:
What’s wrong with this picture? Shas Party Members and Americans who watch television get two guesses.
But it gets worse, with Zionism – oops I already said that.
This is the NJDC’s mission:
NJDC maximizes Jewish support for Democrats at the federal and state levels of government.
NJDC also educates Democratic elected officials and candidates to increase support for Jewish domestic and foreign policy priorities.
We do this to promote both social justice in America and a secure, democratic Jewish State of Israel.
Social justice in America is incompatible with supporting the “Jewish State of Israel.” Zionists know this and that’s the major reason we have the war on terror.
But it gets worse . . .
NJDC is truly on the offensive; we’re taking the initiative to educate the American Jewish community about important pro-Israel and pro-peace steps taken by this Administration and by our House and Senate Democratic leaders.
They certainly do have a sense of humor don’t they?
2. If you go to AIPAC’s website you will see that their lead-off visual is this.
I’m sure it is just a coincidence.
3. Every Christmas season I post to a link to the wonderful video below called Change for a Dollar. It’s a nice video to sit down and watch as a family. 10 minutes of great music and acting with a message that even Shas Party member can understand. It’s why I blog.
Also, each Christmas I post a story about the Christmas-time folk song known as The Cherry Tree Carol. Here is a link to one of those posts from 2011. As I reread it this morning, item 4 in that post was a bit chilling. Here is the link to that post.
I know most of you won’t listen – we are all too busy doing . . . whatever. But here’s Joni Mitchell singing Both Sides Now when Mama Cass was still alive.
And here she is singing that same song. But from another side.
