Jewish, neoliberal New York Times columnist David Brooks set off a storm of accusations of "anti-Semitism" against the Occupy Wall Street movement following his October 10 column titled "The Milquetoast Radicals," in which he condemned the movement as "small, contentious and symbolic," and sparked by anti-Jewish sentiments.
"Take the Occupy Wall Street movement," wrote Brooks:
"This uprising was sparked by the magazine Adbusters, previously best known for the 2004 essay, “Why Won’t Anyone Say They Are Jewish?” — an investigative report that identified some of the most influential Jews in America and their nefarious grip on policy.Influential neoconservative talk radio personality Rush Limbaugh quickly picked up on Brooks' innuendo and took it a step further on his Oct 11 program, inferring that in addition to Occupy Wall Street, the Democratic Party was dabbling in anti-Semitism, as well.
"If there is a core theme to the Occupy Wall Street movement, it is that the virtuous 99 percent of society is being cheated by the richest and greediest 1 percent.
"This is a theme that allows the people in the 99 percent to think very highly of themselves. All their problems are caused by the nefarious elite."
"...the 99% versus the 1% is another angle that the group is talking about here, and Wall Street and bankers, those two terms have been anti-Semitic code for Jews in this country for a long time. Occupier, Occupy Wall Street Now. I’ve often said, I said last week he who controls the definition of words, the meaning of words, controls the debate. He who controls the language controls the debate. There’s a lot of interesting stuff here. Occupy Wall Street Now, 99%, that leaves 1%, roughly the percentage of Jews in the population, too. And Wall Street and bankers have been anti-Semitic code for Jews in this country going back quite a while.Finally, Jewish neoconservative William Kristol, Editor of the The Weekly Standard, co-founder of The Project for a New American Century and chairman of the Emergency Committee for Israel issued a statement inferring that much of the Left in its entirety is anti-Semitic, writing that “It’s not surprising that elements of the modern left are anti-Semitic. It is surprising that respectable liberals have praised the protesters while ignoring the anti-Semitism. Liberals have pretended to see nothing hateful and hear nothing hateful, and therefore have said nothing to rebuke their allies. Will they now speak up?”
"Now, what’s happening here is that the Democrats...This is where Brooks may be on to something. It’s too early to tell. But the Democrats are embracing this group of people. They are embracing them big time. The Democrats — Jan Schakowsky in Illinois, members of Congress — cannot help themselves...But this Adbusters bunch has a history of anti-Semitism, proud anti-Semitism. (interruption) The article about Jewish “neocons” was just one of their pieces, Snerdley, that you mentioned here, along those lines...So here’s the point: If this group is being organized and paid for by a bunch of anti-Semites and the Democrat Party goes overboard in embracing this group of people, then this could be problem for the Democrat coalition, not to mention the fact that they could unleash a bunch of anti-Jewish racism down there if they’re not careful with this, ’cause there’s much more going on here than you just see at the surface."
Kristol's group then issued an advertisement that inferred leaders of the Democratic Party were supportive of the alleged anti-Semitic current within Occupy Wall Street, and were refusing to "stand up to the mob."
As reported by Ben Smith at Politico:
The Emergency Committee for Israel, a Republican group that's focused primarily on criticizing President Obama's Israel policy, is opening a new front on Occupy Wall Street and the politicians -- notably Nancy Pelosi and Obama -- who have spoken sympathetically of the protests, with a new ad featuring anti-Semitic and anti-Israel signs and incidents into a claim that the events are motivated by anti-Semitism.Of course, people who know its history and who are familiar with the current state of the Democratic Party know that far from being anti-Semitic, the Party is actually Jewish supremacist, and is probably more so today than it has ever been.
"Tell President Obama and Leader Pelosi to stand up to the mob," says the narrator of the spot, which the group says will air in a "substantial" buy in New York and Washington.
Zev Chafets of The Daily Beast recently encapsulated the Jewish supremacist bent of the Party at the domestic level:
Jews are less than 2 percent of the American population, but they are major players in the Democratic Party. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is the chairwoman of the national committee. Steve Israel heads the House reelection committee. The party’s intelligentsia and pundit class have a higher bar mitzvah quotient than the average B’nai Brith bowling team. Three of the four Supreme Court justices appointed by Democratic presidents are Jews. So are a quarter of the members of the Democratic Senate Caucus and 45 congressmen (all but one, Eric Cantor, are Democrats).And what about Democratic Party support for Jewish supremacism at the international level?
The Washington Post has estimated that Jews provide 60 percent of the party’s major individual contributions. The actual stat, according to a Democratic insider privy to unreleased research, puts the figure closer to 80 percent. In 2004, when so-called 527 organizations provided the biggest contributions, four Democratic donors—George Soros, Peter Lewis, Steven Bing, and the Sandler family—coughed up $73 million, more than the next 20 contributors, Republican and Democratic, combined. Jews are not simply supporters of the Democratic Party. They are stakeholders.
Like all stakeholders, Jews—and their interests—are taken seriously. Some are professional: academia, the entertainment industry (which depends on a good U.S. image abroad for much of its income), the high-tech sector, the legal establishment, financial institutions, teachers' unions, and liberal NGOs are all disproportionately run and staffed by Jews...
President Obama was recently celebrated by even right-wing Israeli press for “the most pro-Israel [U.N.] speech anyone has heard at that world forum for a very long time,” because he "not only adopted all of the Israeli arguments against recognising a Palestinian state by means of the UN, he adopted the basic Israeli narrative.”
Additionally, dozens of Democrats were among the 81 members of Congress from both parties (nearly 1/5 of the entire congressional body) who took a luxurious, all-expenses-paid, Israel lobby-funded junket to the Jewish state that amounted to an indoctrination tour. (Such pro-Zionist, indoctrination trips have been going on for decades.)
This Jewish supremacist Democratic Party leadership is what the neolibs and neocons, the Rush Limbaughs, the William Kristols and the David Brooks', are trying to claim is anti-Semitic? How on earth do these pro-Zionist, quasi-fascists think they can get away with such a big lie?
In addition to being intellectually dishonest propagandists and Israel-first, Zionist lackeys, the reason they're lying about supposed anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party is because they have have nothing to lose by doing so.
They know the Democrats won't point out that even though Jews are under 2% of the US population, 25% of the Democratic Party senators are Jewish, even as there's only one Black Democratic senator (despite Blacks providing something like 25% of Democratic Party votes);
they know that the Democrats won't point out that President Obama has taken more campaign donations from the overwhelmingly Jewish “securities and investment” industry from 1989 through 2010 than any other political figure in the country;
in short, they know that the Democrats can't defend themselves from charges of anti-Semitism by pointing out that the Party of "equality" and "social justice" and "progressivism" is actually a party of racist, Jewish supremacism because that would unmask it for the fraud that it truly is.
So how will the Democrats react? To prove that they're not anti-Semitic, they'll become even more pro-Zionist than they already are...which is exactly the reaction that the Israel first neocons and neolibs are hoping for in their ongoing quest for World War III against Islamic civilization.
Wouldn't it be nice to someday have an America-first, explicitly anti-Zionist party to vote for that would refuse to play into the endless rituals of "anti-Semitism" accusations followed by ever more consequential pro-Zionist and Jewish supremacist policy carried out by the Democrats and Republicans decade after decade? Wouldn't it be nice to have a party that responded to "anti-Semitism" charges by declaring "Yes, we're anti-Zionist and anti-fascist, so what?"
Such a party MUST emerge, and emerge soon, if America is to be saved from the Zionist fascism being ratcheted tighter and tighter by the neolib-neocon two-party regime that currently occupies Washington.
