The Normalizing and Mainstreaming of Anti-Semitism: Morton Klein

Anti-semitism is defined by Merriam-Webster’s dictionary as “hostility toward or discrimination against Jews as a religious, ethnic, or racial group.” It has happened for centuries and has reared its head in various ways, but with one basic recurring theme. The end goal in its most extreme iteration is to obliterate the nation of Israel and exterminate every Jew on the planet.

More from Breitbart:

Today, antisemitism is appearing in the mainstream in ways that, only a few years ago, would have seemed impossible or at least highly unlikely.

The organizers of last year’s Women’s March are happy to be led by Israel-hating extremists who openly seek to ostracize pro-Israeli feminists. Companies seek to boycott Israeli Jews, and only Israel Jews, because they are Israeli Jews, with businesses located in the disputed territories of the West Bank (Judea/Samaria). The next British prime minister could well be a man who laid a wreath honoring the terrorists who murdered in cold blood eleven Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games and who has called the genocidally-inclined terrorists of Hamas his “friends.” And even in America, newly elected members of Congress openly espouse the strategy of boycotting, divesting from and sanctioning (BDS) Israel.

Consider these developments for a moment. Last year’s so-called “Women’s March” (conservative women who declined to be associated with it are apparently not women) was led by Linda Sarsour, a supporter of antisemite Louis Farrakhan (who recently described Jews as “termites”) and shared a platform with Palestinian terrorist murderer Rasmea Odeh, whose “resistance” she lauded. As an exponent of intersectionality, Sarsour supports excluding from the progressive camp anyone who supports Israel and Zionism.

Such associations would once have induced a news cycle of dismay and criticism of someone like Sarsour. All the more so, when one considers her vicious attacks on genuine feminists who have criticized her radical Islamic agenda, like Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali-born, genital mutilation survivor and human rights activist who fled radical Islamic death threats in the Netherlands, and Brigitte Gabriel, a Lebanese-born Christian refugee from radical Islamic atrocities.

Today, however, to support vicious antisemites in pursuit of an illiberal agenda seems to be a non-event — providing one is on board with other, approved leftist causes. Intersectionality is providing a safe space for rabid hostility to Jews and Jewish national independence.

For another sign of the times, consider two new Democratic Members of Congress elected in the 2018 midterms, Rashida Tlaib and Ihlan Omar. Tlaib calls Israel “racist” and supports its replacement with a single, Arab-dominated state. Omar has labeled Israel an “apartheid” state, damned it as guilty of “evil” acts, and is the first open Congressional supporter of BDS.

Omar misled voters prior to the midterms by opposing BDS, which she admits to supporting now that she has been elected. Her efforts to minimize the blatant contradiction by asserting that she doubts the efficacy of BDS in bringing peace alters little. All she is really saying is that she doubts how useful BDS might prove to be in demonizing, ostracizing, and harming Israel. The clear implication is that, if BDS were highly effective at these things, she would support it even more wholeheartedly than she already does.

Support for BDS once would have been news. Yet the public is not being permitted to even know of Omar’s support for it. PJ Media’s David Steinberg  identified 105 news stories on Omar written in the immediate aftermath of her election victory, not a single one of which even mentioned her extreme statements.

In short, today, antisemitism and extreme hostility to Israel, up to and including opposition to its existence, are being normalized. The ultimate test of normalization is when something ceases to be news, as Omar’s demonization of Israel as “evil” and support for BDS attests.

It is true, the rot is not quite as advanced in America as it is, for example, in Britain, where Jeremy Corbyn is already the leader of the British Labour Party, Leader of the Opposition and, quite possibly, the next Prime Minister. Here, as liberal Zionist Amanda Berman observes, “the [Labour] party has become a hotbed of the kind of anti-Semitic worldview previously confined to the political fringe.” Quite simply, this is a new level in the intensity of anti-Semitism being expressed, tolerated and paraded in Britain.

These facts –– the increasingly widespread, shameless association of leftwing figures with antisemites and terrorists with Jewish blood on their hands, and the widening of support for BDS, coupled with the remarkable neglect and lack of interest in the issue in the media –– are symptomatic of the normalizing of antisemitism to a degree not thought possible only a few short years ago.

Only in such circumstances can one be unsurprised, for example, by the wall-to-wall ignoring of Representative-elect Omar’s vicious statements about Israel. In a situation in which antisemitism is increasingly normalized and thus not news, it is as if Omar’s hatred of Israel is simply so unimportant that it does not bear mentioning. Otherwise, how can it be that no journalist reported on her hostility? Isn’t this an aspect of her record and views the public are entitle to know? And why did no one in the Democratic Party take a stand and criticize her? Where were the pro-Israel Democratic legislators?

That which was unacceptable yesterday can sometimes become acceptable today and unremarkable tomorrow. If we are to avoid that progression, those concerned with the welfare of Jews – worldwide, but not least in America –– must devise strategies now for combating this pernicious development which, if unchecked, can have terrible consequences for Jewish life everywhere.

As to the mainstream of social media’s acceptance of the practice of anti-semitism we have to look no further than the outright banning of the investigative journalist Laura Loomer from Twitter, who related the same truth about the recently-elected members of the House of Representatives who have already “come out of the closet” against Israel and Israelis. She was also suspended from Facebook for a month following the statements. She responded to the Twitter ban by handcuffing herself to the front door of Twitter’s office and protesting their promotion of hate speech.

The one thing that the promoters miss is on the spiritual side of the equation. To go against Israel and Jews is a recipe for disaster. Historical records dating back to the beginning of time as we know it show that God Almighty takes a very dim view of those who oppose His people, and although He is merciful, there comes a time when His fatherlike nature says “ENOUGH!!!” and the consequences are devastating. The anti-semites should take heed to those forewarnings.

Easter Sunday’s Sri Lanka Bombings Condemned by Jewish Leaders

A few hours ago we posted a report of a deadly series of simultaneous bombings in Sri Lanka. At the time of that report, the estimated death toll was around 100, but the most recent update we have now says at least 207 are dead, with hundreds more wounded.

From Breitbart:

Arutz Sheva reports: Israeli and Jewish leaders condemned the series of deadly bombings which killed at least 207 people and wounded hundreds more in Sri Lanka Sunday morning.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, “In the name of the citizens of Israel, it expresses deep shock at the murderous attacks against innocent civilians in Sri Lanka, and Israel is ready to assist the authorities in Sri Lanka at this difficult time.”
President of the State Reuven Rivlin condemned the attacks and sent condolences to the families of those killed: “The attacks in Sri Lanka, including against those who were celebrating Easter, are a despicable crime. We are all children of G-d, an attack on one religion is an attack on all of us. Best wishes for the wounded.”

Source: Breitbart News

It’s so moving to hear Prime Minister Netanyahu’s support of the people left behind after this heinous act. There are many on the left, even in our Congress, that are openly anti-semitic and anti-Christian, yet Netanyahu recognizes, acknowledges, and supports the Christian community (much to the liberals’ chagrin, I’m sure).

The sounds of the mainstream media’s reports are being deafened by the noise of crickets, unlike when the mass shooting of Muslims took place in New Zealand. I’m sure they will conveniently remain silent since there won’t be any ammunition in this attack they can use to try to tear down President Trump. The rule of thumb that became the norm decades ago was “if it bleeds, it leads,” but now the only ones the liberal media want to see bleed are Trump supporters and Trump himself.

I remember when it was truly a day of mourning when events of this type were aired, but now the MSM outlets are much more selective. The way they treat crisis events of this type now, the only ones whose blood matters is that of innocent non-Christians. I would not be at all surprised to find that if their private conversations were made public, liberal haters of God would be applauding the deaths of every Christian on the planet.

Early Fake News Victim is the Subject of a New Clint Eastwood Movie

The term Fake News has become a daily flogging point against those in the mainstream media, from the White House press crew to the full gamut of TV, online, and print outlets. President Trump regularly trolls them with verbal backhands, and for a good reason; they’ve become the absolute masters of disinformation and left-leaning propaganda.

Clint Eastwood staunchly supports the president and has taken on a  new project, a movie based on a story called The Ballad Of Richard Jewell, who was a victim of a media smear campaign twenty-odd years ago from which he never recovered.

This from Breitbart:

Oscar-winning director Clint Eastwood is circling The Ballad of Richard Jewell as his next project, the tragic story about an early victim of our fake news media.

Jewell was a 34-year-old security guard at the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, and at first he was rightfully hailed as a hero after he discovered a backpack filled with explosives and risked his own life to evacuate the area. After the bomb went off, dozens were injured and one person was killed. There is no question, though, that many, many more would have died had Jewell not sounded the alarm.

Unfortunately for Jewell, the acclaim didn’t last long. He was overweight, white, and a southerner — the perfect target for our left-wing media… And so, three days later the media reported the F.B.I. was looking at him as a possible suspect. There was zero evidence against Jewell. The entire story was based on a criminal profile of the bomber.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution launched the hate campaign by comparing Jewell to the serial killer behind a horrible series of child murders in Atlanta.

Immediately, the rest of the unquestioning, totally irresponsible, and reckless media went to town on Jewell, portraying him as a pathetic mama’s boy, a fat guy who failed at law enforcement, a clown in a security guard uniform who planted the bomb to make himself a hero.

Source: Breitbart News

The article goes on to talk about many more details that I don’t have room for here, but the real bottom line here is that Jewell died young at the age of 42 and never recovered from the media assault on his character and his life.

That kind of abuse is what absolutely infuriates me about the way many of the far-left politicians and media personalities behave. It reminds me of the cliques that become a part of high school life. If you’re in the “in” crowd, nothing matters except adherence to the Group Think. If you dare express your individuality, woe is you, because they will slaughter you verbally, if not physically.

I know many people who have been deceived by the mantra of the Left, and while in many ways they may be friendly people, when it comes to some things (such as politics), they seem to totally lose their minds. It’s almost as if there’s a recorded message in there that certain things trigger, and their minds are made up, so don’t confuse them with the facts.

Richard Jewell was a victim of Fake News attacks long before it became a national buzzword. I believe Clint Eastwood’s movie will shed some light on how despicable and pervasive the problem has become in today’s political climate.

Donna Brazile Says Obama Admin ‘Did Everything They Could’, Defends Obama’s Actions Concerning Russian 2016 Election Meddling

We know from history that Donna Brazile is what I would call a hard-core Democrat. I suppose you could say she was hired to be a contributor at Fox News as somewhat of an “expert” on things Democrat (I won’t use the term “democratic,” because that term completely twists the meaning). In a recent segment, she defended the most radically-left president this country has ever seen, Barack Hussein Obama, against naysayers who are critical of his action, or rather the lack of action, concerning Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

This from Breitbart:

Longtime Democrat operative and newly minted Fox News contributor Donna Brazile defended former President Barack Obama and his administration over Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election, saying she believes they did “everything they could.”

“I think they did everything they could without sounding all of the alarm bells,” Brazile said on Fox News’s The Daily Briefing.
“If Obama did more on Russian meddling, she said, critics would have accused him of trying to help his former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in her race against then-candidate Donald Trump,” Fox News reported.
“He was in a box,” Brazile said of the former president. 
“Perhaps President Trump is in a box,” she added, before calling for action to prevent future meddling. 
In the Fox report, Brazile claimed it was the Trump campaign that “exploited” information from WikiLeaks, which has suspected ties to Russia.
“Every day, the Trump campaign would get the WikiLeaks information; they would blast it,” Brazile said. “He used it in his daily rallies and daily meetings.”
“Brazile, who served as interim Democratic National Committee chair during the election, backed away from making any determination about whether her party should pursue impeaching the president,” Fox reported.

Source: Breitbart News

So now that the Mueller report has been wrapped up, the findings say clearly that neither President Trump nor anyone in his presidential campaign colluded with Russia. The report should have cleared him from any charges of obstruction of justice, but that didn’t happen. Of course, we know that the reason it was left open-ended is to set the Democrats up with something they call a “road map for impeachment.”

Senator Elizabeth Warren is still beating the impeachment drum as she continues to campaign for a shot at the Oval Office, but Brazile has stepped back from that position a bit. She may believe Trump should be removed from the White House, but she isn’t endorsing it nearly so vigorously right now.

She was quoted as saying“I think it’s premature to talk about what the next step is. Before we can move into what I call the impeachment gear, perhaps we should just dive into this report.”

Fox News reported, “Like Brazile, DNC Chair Tom Perez appeared to sidestep impeachment questions on Thursday and said it was unclear whether or not obstruction occurred.”

President Trump’s exoneration via the Mueller report is a stinging rebuke to all those of the far left who howled for over two years about him being unfit for the White House. They keep running the old playbook plan in which they accuse him of all the things of which they are most guilty. Obstructionism? Look no farther than the Democrat party. They would stand against an ice cream social if it came out that Trump suggested it.
