David Horowitz: “Ron Paul is a Vicious Anti-Semite”
(Occidental Observer) -- by Kevin MacDonald --
A very encouraging development is that the Israel Lobby is increasingly on the defensive with the Republican base. Both Ron Paul and Rand Paul have proposed cutting the foreign budget. A letter from Ron Paul was headlined “Stop buying friends overseas, save $6 billion!”
“Borrowing money from China — or printing it out of thin air — to hand out overseas in [an] attempt to purchase friends has been a failing foreign policy, as we see most recently in Egypt where there is not even a government in place!” Paul wrote in his Dear Colleague letter. “We should seek friendly relations and trade overseas, but we cannot justify lavish gifts to foreign leaders when American taxpayers are increasingly feeling the pain of our economic crisis…. We cannot afford to have ‘business as usual’ when we are bankrupt.”
The bill is not endorsed by the leadership and probably won’t pass, but “Paul’s amendment represents the rising tide of opposition to foreign aid and the increased difficulty of defending such aid in Congress.”
These calls to restrict foreign aid are framed entirely within the context of a completely out of control federal budget. But that hasn’t stopped the David Horowitz from his usual over the top craziness, painting anyone who doesn’t do everything Israel wants as an anti-Semite: “Ron Paul is a Vicious Anti-Semite and Conservatives Need To Wash Their Hands of Him.”
Long ago Bill Buckley drummed the anti-Semites out of the conservative movement, and the movement thrived as a result. But the Jew-haters have returned. For years the Texas crackpot, Ron Paul, has been attacking America and Israel as imperialist powers — the Great Satan and the Little Satan, and calling for America’s retreat from the battle against our totalitarian enemies. At the recent CPAC conference Paul’s Jew-hating storm-troopers swarmed the Freedom Center’s table to vent their spleen against Israel as a Nazi state. Now Paul is making a priority of withdrawing aid for Israel — the only democracy in the Middle East and the only reliable ally of the United States.“Vicious anti-Semite”? “Jew-hating storm troopers”??
The “Jew hating storm troopers” refers to hundreds of thugs plastered with swastikas who stormed Horowitz’s table at the CPAC conference and viciously beat up the presenters.
Oh wait. That’s how the scene played out in Horowitz’s diseased mind. In the real world, the people manning Horowitz’s table were confronted by a whole lot of young conservatives who have gotten the message that Israel is an apartheid state bent on ethnic cleansing and oppression of the Palestinians. They seem to be aware of the hypocrisy of Jewish activist organizations that preach multiculturalism for non-Jews and aggressive ethnonationalism for Jews...MORE...LINK

Jewish Zionist Israel-firster David Horowitz says "Bill Buckley drummed the anti-Semites out of the conservative movement, and the movement thrived as a result."
If by "anti-Semites," Horowitz is referring to Ron Paul and Pat Buchanan, first of all, Buckley obviously didn't completely succeed, as Ron Paul has been serving publicly in one capacity or another continuously more or less since the 70's and is more popular today than ever. And of course, Buchanan has had an impact on conservative politics, mostly in mass media, for decades as well.
Unfortunately, their impact hasn't been greater, because if only the conservative movement had followed the advice and policies of Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul instead of the neocons, we probably never would have been attacked on 9/11, we wouldn't have been lied into expensive and unwinnable Mideast wars for Israel and the national security welfare complex, we wouldn't be mired there to this day, the country wouldn't facing bankruptcy due to huge overspending on the national credit card to pay for it all, our industrial base wouldn't have been plundered and shipped overseas, our borders would have been secured, and foreign countries wouldn't have been granted free access to our mature markets without opening up their own markets in return.
In short, the country wouldn't have been used, exploited, manipulated and plundered by a neocon/neolib hostile elite, and wouldn't be in the social, political, and economic toilet that we're in as a result of their policies today.
So clearly, those on the Right accused of "anti-Semitism" by the neocons are far wiser, more patriotic, and care more about the country and its future than the hordes of self-serving manipulators, exploiters, fools, and Israel-firsters on the necon Right.
