I've gotten so used to the Left's anti-Jewish habits, that I mostly just shrug my shoulders as simply another episode of Scorpion & Frog.
Sometimes though - things get traction. Maureen Dowd is the latest,This is a slow one down the middle. The Jew as snake has a very long history - recent past and present.
For over a decade, "neocon" has been argumentative shorthand used by the Left for "conservative Jew." Full stop.
"Slither" - well, anyone who even has a paper-thin reading of the history of anti-Jewish propaganda can understand that.
Left, right, and center - this is simply a fact of the new lexicon.
It isn't the fact that the home of anti-Jewish filth is on the Left - after all, after "National," there comes "Socialist" - that is so interesting about this; no, what I have found most interesting is the fact that smart people are trying to cover for Maureen by thinking the rest of us are so stupid.
Andy Rosenthal, the editorial page editor of the New York Times, is dismissing criticism that Maureen Dowd's column peddled anti-Semitic imagery.I'm sorry - that doesn't wash. Not even close.
"No fair-minded reading of Maureen Dowd's column supports the allegations you and others are making. She makes no reference, direct or implied, to anyone's religion,"
Then again, the sign of a real bigot is when their bigoted words and concepts just flow out in daily conversation. When they get in trouble is when they forget what company they are in.
Maureen, you need to just admit you "chose your words poorly" and then new friends. Andy, it might be time for you to reflect how much of an echo chamber you live in. Get out some.
