I know, I know, I don’t usually do politics, but Rush is really chapping my ass right about now. His comments are always outrageously hate-filled diatribes, and he’s getting harder to ignore every day. What’s worse, his followers eagerly suckle at the teat intolerance, finding solace in his affirmation of their own bigotry. And finally, he is cynical beyond any hope of redemption.
First, he is virtually a Holocaust denier, and as we know, Holocaust denial is always a manifestation of hatred of Jews.
“He [Obama] is beating Germany up. He is ripping them to shreds over something they did 60 years ago. One day after praising all of Islam. Now can you imagine, there’s of course Elie Wiesel gets up there and he does his thing but it’s 65 years here or close to it…He’s up there and he’s ripping Germany for what it did 60 or 65 years ago, blah, blah, blah, blah. One day after praising to the hilt Islam, and talking about Islam, how America is a Muslim nation, so forth.”
The German people have been rather careful to avoid forgetting their not-so-distant past, and I don’t think they need Rush to tell them to “get over it”. When your nation is responsible for a massive genocide committed in living memory, forgetting is rather dangerous. But Rush can play both sides of this one. Regarding the attack at the Holocaust Memorial:
The Weekly Standard, a conservative magazine, may have been one of the shooter’s targets. You know why? Because the Weekly Standard is edited by “neocons,” Jewish people who are big on US foreign policy and defense of Israel. Leftist-type conspiracy theories. This guy may have been targeting a conservative publication.
A hater, a nutcase who hates neocons — i.e., Jews — this von Brunn guy, attacks the Holocaust museum and has in his possession the address of the Weekly Standard, a publication that is run by neocons, a term invented by liberals as a code word to describe Jews who run American foreign policy for the express defense of Israel. So this hater of neocons, hater of conservative Jews, von Brunn, attacks the Holocaust museum. There is another guy who hates neocons. His name is Chris Matthews. And he works at MSNBC, which is a network of endless hate.
Somehow, in Rush’s opiate-addled mind, neocon=Jew, and an attack on Jews is an attack on neocons, meaning that the attacker is a liberal. Got that?
I’ve got news for you Rush. The Jewish people aren’t new at this. We can recognize exploitation pretty easily, and your tortured reasoning reveals your own bigotry. “Neocon” is not the same as “Jew”—it is a common trope touted by isolationist antisemites. Also, neocon views are not a common “Jewish value”. The fact that some prominent neocons are Jewish and that you exploit this fact for your own political ends, makes you an idiot and an antisemitic bigot. And the Standard wasn’t targeted (if it was even targeted) because it is conservative. If it was targeted, it was because, in the hateful mind of the shooter, the Standard=Jews—neocons are the “collateral damage”, not Jews. Violent antisemites target Jewish victims, some of whom may be conservative. They do not target conservatives, some of whom happen to be Jewish. If you read the twisted writings of the shooter (whose name isn’t fit to be typed), he was a violent bigot, not an MSNBC-driven hunter of neocons.
He’s got a lot in common with you, Rush.
