I dont find anti semitism in everything
I just call it out when I see it
I see it a lot on the right
In fact a lot of people on the right are loud and proud of their anti semitism
I think is important to call out these anti semites. It sickens me and disgusts
For Foxnews to directly blame Soros for a attack on a weatherman by teens has to disgust Jews
It feeds into the narative of these knuckledraggers that hate jews


As a matter of fact I think antisemitism is pretty alive in certain parts of the Left, though we all know the extreme skinhead Right contains it

I'll just post some links

Soopoo - elsewhere you posted about going to Hanukkah parties.
I believe you're Jewish.
What do you feel about the right's raging anti-semitism?
The link is re Trump's hosting of anti-semites at a dinner party.

Let me guess.
You think it's a very small thing that should be ignored.

Iím never in favor of anti (semitism, Asian, African American, Latino, etc..) as concepts. I believe anti semitism is ingrained in a large swath of the population. Has been for centuries. Will continue to be for centuries. I never say it should be ignored. But it should be analyzed, and appropriate measures enacted to limit it IN SOME CIRCUMSTANCES. Iím more free speech. If a guy wants to go to the corner of Broad and Wall and get on a soapbox and scream that Jews are ruining America, I think thatís his right. Heck, our politicians send money to Palestine while they lob bombs at the only country where Jews have a large population. And send their children laden with bombs onto buses and into cafes. So there are many Ďright leaningí television channels that are markedly pro Israel, pro Jew if you will. The Democrats actually elected Omar and Tlaib. If you donít believe they are more anti semitic than any Ďfar rightí elected official I canít help you.

Trump is an idiot. I will not deny he has dined with people even more idiotic than himself. I donít believe the Ďrightí is more antisemitic than the Ďleftí. Maybe the extreme fringes are more visible. If youíve read my posts Iím no fan of either left or right fringes.

So to answer your question, I donít think it should be ignored. If DeSantis/Haley start lunching with Ye, Iíd worry about that.

Don't buy it at all.
The left having issues with Israel is not at all the same thing as a right wing politician talking down Jews.
It's totally legitimate to have political differences with Israel.
It doesn't make a person an anti-Semite.
A politician, talking down Jews while running for office in America, that's a whole different ball of wax.
And it's coming from the right, not from the left.
You're not going to fool anybody saying otherwise.

It just won't fly.
That dog won't hunt.

For every one person talking down Jews from the left; there are a hundred talking down Jews from the right.

I wonder what you're going to do when you're at a rightist convention of some sort and you hear the ugly talk?

I'll bet you're going to be real quiet. Just sit there and take it.
Pretend it didn't happen.

You constantly make BS declarations and refuse to dig deep. sad.
I cant help you if you cant determine being against Israel policies is not anti jew
I thought you were smarter then that but apparently I am wrong
Muslims against Israel expansion is not anti semitic
I'm against Israel expanding into occupied territories.
Its a common liberal position.
A lot of Jews are against Israeli expansion
Lets take Omar
Why do you believe she is anti semitic????????????
I totally agree with Omar
AIPAC
its all about the Benjamins
I'm not an anti semite
Do you believe Omar is and why
Times of Israel dug deep. She is not an anti semite

Oh, and I almost forgot.

What are all of the other righties on this site going to do when they hear the ugly talk in their meetings?

Nothing. They will do nothing and say nothing.

Did I mention expansion? I mentioned lobbing bombs into civilian areas indiscriminately. I mentioned sending your children with bombs affixed to their bodies into civilian buses and civilian cafes.
Ed, you can try all you want to infer/say/whatever that Iím not as smart as you. Using ANY metric you are wrong. Your arguments rarely follow any logical pattern. You donít listen to cogent arguments refuting your attempted points. Sometimes they make so little sense I donít even know where to start.

There are many Israeli policies I might disagree with. Omar /Tlaib/etc.. want to fund the organizations that actively promote violence, originating in Gaza, directly aimed at civilians in Israel. And when Israel launches a counter attack those losers will be the first to attack Israel because Israel is stronger and more efficient.

Iím not sure why Iím even trying hereÖ.

I have been to countless fundraisers for both Democrat and Republican politicians. I have never once heard a single anti semitic comment.

More garbage and BS
Omar does not support violence
You make horrible baseless BS accusations with not a shred of proof.
Are these Jews anti semetic ?????????????
These Jews would welcome her
Are you of the mind that all Palestinians are terrorists
It's BS
There an awful lot of jews that actually stand with Palestinians. Her views are no different then these jews.
I agree with Omar and these Jews.
We don't support violence

When I think of anti semites, I look at holocaust deniers. These sickos are very friendly with Gossar and Gaetz, not Omar.

I'll just post some links


You realize that one of your links is a subscriber only link. Are you a paid subscriber or do you just post links without reading the article?
When I post a link, I read it 1st. Maybe you should try that.

Omar is just simply an evil hate filled human being.
