They deserve to go bankrupt rather than have the federal government give this shit a subsidy.

No longer OT:

The Times Plans Temporary Pay Cuts

"Facing a steep drop in revenue, The New York Times Company plans to cut the pay of most employees by 5 percent for nine months, in return for 10 days’ leave, and will lay off 100 people and make other budget cuts, executives said on Thursday."

I think they should voluntarily give up much more than that, don't you?

Coming on top of not getting called on by the 0-chump at his lil press conference thingy, this has to sting.

Mr. Oliphant,

I assure you that I fully understand that the First Amendment is there to protect speech with which I disagree. I defend to the death that concept, and your right to create that cartoon and send it out into the marketplace of ideas.

With your kind permission, I shall now exercise my right to free speech:

Your work is revolting, disgusting, and despicable.

There, now we've both had our say.

re: #20 Sharmuta

Pat Oliphant

Wow- they updated that fast:

A 2009 cartoon about the recent war on Gaza sparked criticism amongst American Jews. Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, issued the following statement: "Pat Oliphant's outlandish and offensive use of the Star of David in combination with Nazi-like imagery is hideously anti-Semitic. It employs Nazi imagery by portraying Israel as a jack-booted, goose-stepping headless apparition. The implication is of an Israeli policy without a head or a heart. Israel's defensive military operation to protect the lives of its men, women and children who are being continuously bombarded by Hamas rocket attacks has been turned on its head to show the victims as heartless, headless aggressors". The Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Jewish rights group with more than 400,000 members in the United States, said the cartoon denigrates and demonizes Israel and mimics the Nazi propaganda. It called on The New York Times and other media groups to remove the cartoon from their Web sites.

38 Honorary Yooper  Thu, Mar 26, 2009 10:56:19am

At first glance, I could've sworn this came from a mid-1930s German newspaper. I guess Jew hate is chic with the left again.

39 FloridaAnole  Thu, Mar 26, 2009 10:56:23am

Unbelievable. And back in the 70's Pat Oliphant was some kind of great Liberal totem, second only to Herblock. One of their "good guys". The dude has gone completely off the rails, as have the two newspapers that actually printed this abomination. It shows you how liberalism has "evolved" -- into something unspeakable.

When the Nazis came for the communists,

Then they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
I did not speak out;
I was not a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out for me.

Just what we need - a wanker trying to out Ted Rall Ted Rall.

The fact that the editorial page editors in the NYT or WaPo have an issue with this is a clear example of the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the hard left.....and that fundamentally, they are the fascists they accuse the right of being.

Why are we seeing this in the 21st century?

Good question and a warning not to be deluded by thinking that we are enlightened and sophisticated and educated enough to ward off future evils. We are as gullible and prone to manipulation as any witch hunting crowd from the Dark Ages. perhaps more so because of the illusion of access to information, which without the attendant education and wisdom to process it can be used to whip people into a mindless frenzy. I'm not saying you are like this, btw. Just making the observation.

65 Ariel  Thu, Mar 26, 2009 11:01:00am

Supposedly, the media is about speaking truth to power. Here, would be truth to power - The jackbooted marcher, wearing a kaffiyeh, walks with his Muslim crescent trying to eat the innocent victims of Sderot.

Of course, such a cartoon would violate the Muhammad cartoons publication canon - thou shalt not publish something offensive to Muslims.

Further, people might reasonably argue that such a cartoon is anti-Muslim, demonizes a religion, etc. (despite its greater accuracy). Giving someone a platform to demonize a religion might not be such a great thing, particularly in our newspapers of record. Maybe that same standard should apply to non-Muslim religions as well?

66 Catttt  Thu, Mar 26, 2009 11:01:02am

Are they going to use the excuse that this is about Zionism, not Judaism? Because that ain't going to fly this time.

67 Mad Al-Jaffee  Thu, Mar 26, 2009 11:01:03am

Not only is it offensive, but that star of David looks like something from the Beatles Yellow Submarine movie.

I remember a great pro-Israel cartoon from Oliphant, celebrating the successful raid on Entebbe. He's fallen a long way since then.

I'm 99.999999999 percent sure you won't see me and other Jews rioting and making death threats over this.

re: #56 SecondComing

The advocating for the Palestinians, IMHO, by the Left is not because they are pro-Palestinian, nor because they even care anything for the people in Gaza or the West Bank. It is, instead, symptomatic of their own personal Jew-hatred that they have within their soul. They are pro-Palestinian only because they are anti-Israel.

It is disgusting, and it is merely a cover for their Jew-hate.

That's really, really, really bad. Makes the Obama "monkey" cartoon from a few weeks back look positively tame in comparison.

And, lest you think that it would be an exercise in futility, may I remind you that they are supposed to represent us. Firm (but polite) letters concerning this cartoon, the idea of the Government supporting newspapers and other matters can be sent to:[Link: www.house.gov...] as well as to: [Link: www.senate.gov...]

His answer: 'Because without Israel the world would live in peace.' Knowing the REAL history, she queried him further. He knew NOTHING of the history of Israel ...nothing.

It just needed to be destroyed.

It was her first brush with that irrational hatred, and it shook her enough to call me and discuss it.

At first glance, I could've sworn this came from a mid-1930s German newspaper. I guess Jew hate is chic with the left again.

It has always been chic - but for a time it was disguised behind the 'concern' for the poor pali refugees'.
Now they obviously feel its safe to show their Jew Hate openly.

re: #101 MandyManners

Oliphant's work, which from time to time employs ethnic caricatures, has occasionally been criticized. In 2001, the Asian American Journalists Association accused Oliphant of "cross[ing] the line from acerbic depiction to racial caricature".[1] In 2005, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee expressed concern that some of Oliphant's caricatures were racist and misleading.[2] In 2007, two Oliphant cartoons produced a similar response.

A 2009 cartoon about the recent war on Gaza sparked criticism amongst American Jews. Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, issued the following statement: "Pat Oliphant's outlandish and offensive use of the Star of David in combination with Nazi-like imagery is hideously anti-Semitic. It employs Nazi imagery by portraying Israel as a jack-booted, goose-stepping headless apparition. The implication is of an Israeli policy without a head or a heart. Israel's defensive military operation to protect the lives of its men, women and children who are being continuously bombarded by Hamas rocket attacks has been turned on its head to show the victims as heartless, headless aggressors". The Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Jewish rights group with more than 400,000 members in the United States, said the cartoon denigrates and demonizes Israel and mimics the Nazi propaganda. It called on The New York Times and other media groups to remove the cartoon from their Web sites.

re: #39 FloridaAnole

Unbelievable. And back in the 70's Pat Oliphant was some kind of great Liberal totem, second only to Herblock. One of their "good guys". The dude has gone completely off the rails, as have the two newspapers that actually printed this abomination. It shows you how liberalism has "evolved" -- into something unspeakable.

Liberalism is a big lie that needs to be challenged wherever it's met. It benefits greatly from the perception that it is tolerant and generous and open-minded when it is exactly the opposite.
How it came to be this way is beyond me and how it survives, with daily examples of shrill, shrieking leftists, is even more perplexing. All the more reason to confront it and expose it for the hateful, fascist, totalitarian philosophy that it is.

Uh, it dealt with Travis the chimp and two police officers commenting on the fact that the author of the bailout was dead. Obama didn't write the bill. Suspect it came from Pelosi's office.

This isn't the first time. He is extremely anti-Israel, and in this case he's clearly crossed the line.

But consider that 3 years ago a pair of academics wrote a book condemning the influence of the "Israel lobby." And a recent government appointee echoed the charge when he withdrew from consideration.

Look at the FBI's Hate Crimes statistics for 2007, the most recent statistics available. There have been roughly twice as many anti-Black incidents as antisemitic. However given that there are roughly 7 times as many blacks as Jews in America, per capita the rate of antisemitic hate crimes is much higher!

Antisemitism - the hate that folks just don't worry about.

For us Jews, it's becoming more certain each day that what seemed like the paranoid fears of the Holocaust generation might be coming true- it can happen anywhere.

Anti Semitism is becoming respectable. The Olypant cartoon is not just hateful, it is a clear and present danger.

If the Star of David is the symbol of shark like unfeeling killers, who target innocents and children- these unfeeling killers must be put down.

You will find a Star of David on every Synagogue.

THE CARTOON IS A CALL TO HARM JEWS.

I fear we- Jews- may soon experience the shock that some of our parents recognized in the 30's and 40's when anti Semites who have hidden their hate for social expediency begin to be comfortable expressing their true feelings. Others may just join the mob.

Oliphant came out of the anti Semitic bunker today. Who will come next?

And as telling- who will stand up and object?

About the cartoon -from prominent sources -there is just silence.

The American embassy in Jerusalem was the scene of angry protests
At least five people have been killed in Israel as protests against American cartoons swept across the country.

Two people died when protesters turned on the US airbase although the US has had no involvement with the images, which originated in the New York Times.

Meanwhile in Serdot, a teenage boy died after protesters attacked police.

Israel announced it was halting trade with America, as protesters pelted the American embassy with petrol bombs.

Sidenote: "If Bayh is to be believed and his new group of moderates “literally have no agenda,” then what exactly are they doing? As MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow explained last night, it appears that Bayh and his colleagues have found at least one niche to fill by helping Republicans obstruct the President’s agenda and deny voters the policies they endorsed last November:

Anyone voting against a Democratic agenda voted Republican. Those votes produced a very small Republican minority in Congress. A small minority that now has way more power than they otherwise would because of conservative Democrats deciding to give Republicans as much power as they can."

For us Jews, it's becoming more certain each day that what seemed like the paranoid fears of the Holocaust generation might be coming true- it can happen anywhere.

Anti Semitism is becoming respectable. The Olypant cartoon is not just hateful, it is a clear and present danger.

If the Star of David is the symbol of shark like unfeeling killers, who target innocents and children- these unfeeling killers must be put down.

You will find a Star of David on every Synagogue.

THE CARTOON IS A CALL TO HARM JEWS.

I fear we- Jews- may soon experience the shock that some of our parents recognized in the 30's and 40's when anti Semites who have hidden their hate for social expediency begin to be comfortable expressing their true feelings. Others may just join the mob.

Oliphant came out of the anti Semitic bunker today. Who will come next?

And as telling- who will stand up and object?

About the cartoon -from prominent sources -there is just silence.

This Jew is ready.

What we need are more people who realize that the Jews should be respected for being Jews. That many of our traditions (Christian or other) have their foundation in the Abrahamic covenant and owe their history and roots to Isaac and Jacob.

Even if we differ on fundamental issues we as a free society must respect their right to exist as a people who may worship as their conscience dictates.

221 Right mind left  Thu, Mar 26, 2009 11:27:26am

I've been following the discussion of the Serve America Act that is being pushed through the senate today. There is an amendment proposed against Acorn getting funding (seems like an obvious complaint) and the response is below it...shows more of the "nothing to see here" mentality. This is infuriating to me, but I think we need to be well aware of what is happening to the laws being produced hereto forward...

[Link: republican.senate.gov...]

Senator Vitter: (11:46 AM)
· Propounded a UC that Vitter Amendment # 705 to the Mikulski Substitute Amendment be considered (without objection).
· Spoke in favor of Vitter Amendment # 705 to the Mikulski Substitute Amendment.

o SUMMARY "So what does my amendment do? My amendment simply states that no money in this program can go to ACORN or any of its affiliate organizations in any way. Now, Madam President, as I say, on the face of it, that seems like a very specific, very focused amendment, and it is. We're talking about one organization that has done an enormous amount of suspect political activity in the past that many people in this chamber, more importantly, many people around the country, have deep reservations about. But, Madam President, the amendment also goes to the heart of this debate. And the heart of this debate is whether this new federal bureaucracy would, in effect, politicize charitable activity around the country which we certainly do not want."

RESPONSE:
Senator Mikulski: (12:00 PM)

· Spoke against Vitter Amendment #705 to the Mikulski Substitute Amendment.

o SUMMARY "When we look at the amendment by the gentleman from Louisiana, it is punitive towards other organizations that might be in the same building as ACORN, and it might be even a totally different one. It could be health care for the homeless. It could be a hotline for battered women and violence against women. They would be prohibited from getting AmeriCorps volunteers simply because they're in that building."

o SUMMARY "The other is it singles out ACORN, and ACORN hasn't received any AmeriCorps funds in a decade. And if ACORN should ever get federal funds, they would be prohibited from doing any of the activities that would give the other side of the aisle pause or concern. We would have that same pause or concern. One, engaging in legislative advocacy, and the other would be absolutely a red light if anyone applying for AmeriCorps volunteers had been convicted of a federal crime."

· Propounded a UC that at 2:30 PM, the Senate resume consideration of amendment #721; that upon disposition of that amendment, the Senate resume consideration of amendment #716; that upon the disposition of that amendment, the Senate resume consideration of amendment #705; that prior to a vote in relation to each amendment, there be two minutes of debate divided and controlled between the two leaders or their designees in the usual form and that no amendments being in order to any amendments in this agreement prior to a vote in relation to it. After the first vote in the sequence, the remaining votes be limited to 10 minutes each (without objection).

My daughter is visiting Eastern Europe on her spring break this week. The other day she was in Prague and visited the Jewish Museum. I've taught her to be pro-Israel (and in fact, my natural father was Jewish), so she was anxious to see the museum. It covers the entire history of Jews in the region, from the Middle Ages to the Holocaust and beyond. She was overwhelmed by the whole experience. She just could not believe the insanely evil things that were done at various times in history. The main impressions she got out of it, she said, where an appreciation of the courage of the Jews, their love of learning, and how they always found a way to survive and thrive despite the restrictions placed on them. And the ultimate irony is, all those restrictions and prohibitions that prevented them from assimilating are what helped them survive as a people for thousands of years.

I hope that the Holocaust survivours, few of them as they are, can still report about the change in Germany which led to their martyrdom. I hope young people may learn from that - and I hope that there is still enough time to turn this menace away.

When someone asks me how a Jew could still believe in G-D, I always reply, "We're still here, aren't we?"

That's similar to what I say. I tell people the continued existence of the Jewish people is proof they're God's chosen people. I can't think of a better explanation.

Because it addresses motivations for staying silent, I like what Charlie Mingus had to say (in a documentary film about him) when talking about a Shoah survivor lady pianist he knew:
When they come for someone a few blocks from you, you think "maybe he was guilty, of something bad", when they come for those on , "maybe they are guilty too"
And when they come for you, by that time you are guilty. Guilty of doing nothing and staying silent.

re: #229 G.W.

I am not worried about the Jewish people. I am worried about the safety of my loved ones and myself, but not about the Jewish Nation. We just celebrated Purim, and in two weeks we will celebrate Passover. The third time, a maniacal evil man tried to destroy the entire Jewish people is of course more recent: the Holocaust. None of these worked out really well for the perpetrators.

Einstein once described madness as repeatedly trying the same thing and expecting different results. By this measure, it is indeed a mad mad world!

re: #245 Honorary Yooper

That's what I thought I remembed. The Crown Heights Riot.

The Crown Heights Riot was a three-day riot that occurred in August 1991 in the Crown Heights neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. The community was home to approximately 180,000 people – consisting of Caribbean-Americans and West Indians (50%), African Americans (39%), and Jewish residents (11%). The riots began on August 19, 1991 after a Guyanese boy was accidentally struck by an automobile in the motorcade of a prominent Hasidic rabbi. The boy subsequently died of his injuries. One historian described the subsequent riot as "the most serious anti-Semitic incident in American history".[1] The riot was also viewed as a pogrom by some members of the Jewish community.[2]

re: #249 EmmmieG

Young people need to be taught the history of the Jews in order to understand why there needs to be an Israel.

They need to know about Spain. They need to know about Poland. They need to understand where "beyond the pale," comes from. The list goes on, and I think most current college graduates, let alone high school graduates, would know only a fraction of it.

This is a good chance to ask you (and anyone else who cares to respond) if you're familiar with Paul Johnson's "A History of the Jews" and what you think of it. I have not gotten past the first few chapters but I do want to read it, since I've loved everything else of his that I've read.

It is a shame that genocide/suicide cults have co opted that word. It should mean someone who dies for a noble cause. In that sense the Jews who would not renounce their faith and died for it were martyrs. But I understand why that word seems inappropriate after its tainted use by those who seek glory by killing others.

I was thinking those riots between Jews and Blacks in New York. I remember them on the news. IIRC, it started when a kid got hit by a car.

[Link: www.nationalcenter.org...]

In 1995, the building's owners decided to raise the rents on the business tenants. It's not an uncommon thing to do - many landlords have and continue to do this across Manhattan and across the country. But, because they couldn't afford the rent increase, several businesses, including some black-owned ones, were forced to move. The man who would be king, the Reverend Al Sharpton, decided to protest this - not by deriding the church elders, the landlords of the building, but by loudly denouncing the Jewish owners of Freddy's Fashion Mart.
He insisted that Freddy's owners were bloodsuckers and white interlopers who were forcing the other tenants out of the building to further their own "racist" agenda.

re: #238 Opinionated

It was published yesterday. I didn't know about it until I saw a report in the Israeli papers.

If you Google the story, it has appeared only in minor news sources- and only in the reportage of the comment from the ADL.

The vileness and defamation of Jews everywhere- the Star Of David is the recognized symbol of Judaism not just of Israel- seems not to bother too many.

It was published in the Washington Post- to silence in official Washington.


It is shocking that something vile like this has elicited no reaction at all.
Even if people were indifferent to Judaism generally - the Star of David is indeed the symbol of a state recognised by the UN (for how long - thats another question, alas!).
So why are people who aren't that bothered about Judaism, at least upset about the disrespect shown to an Ally of the United States?

Or are the times already such that nothing actually matters, respect, disrespect, religion - who cares? Provided its not the ROPMA - because, we know - they would not be silent about something like that cartoon ...

I cant begin to describe how sickened and saddened I am about seeing such a vile cartoon in the NYT.

Likewise, Sharpton would also have you forget his 1991 involvement in the tragedy in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn. A car driven by a Hassidic Jew accidentally struck and killed a seven-year-old black boy. Sharpton injected himself into the situation, falsely claiming in both the local and national media that a Jewish-owned ambulance refused to take the child for treatment

The world now eagerly eats up every false rumor and arab allegation at face value, while simultaneously looking the other way at the daily butchery done in the name of Islam.

Let us not forget his involvement in the Tawana Brawley non-incident.

AND
The television show HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel showed a 1983 FBI videotape in which Al Sharpton is seen talking about laundering drug money with former mobster Michael Franzese, a Mafioso-turned-undercover-FBI informant posing as a cocaine dealer. Now you might think something like this might be bad news for a presidential candidate, but to hear Sharpton talk about it, there's nothing unseemly about it.

re: #287 sattv4u2

OR ,, maybe you were thinking of the other incident

Likewise, Sharpton would also have you forget his 1991 involvement in the tragedy in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn. A car driven by a Hassidic Jew accidentally struck and killed a seven-year-old black boy. Sharpton injected himself into the situation, falsely claiming in both the local and national media that a Jewish-owned ambulance refused to take the child for treatment

It says something that a flamethrowing demogogue like Sharpton is now accorded primo respectablility and is frequently seen as a guest talking head on MSM political shows, Crown Heights, (&Tawana Brawley, Duke Lacrosse Players etc.) notwithstanding.

re: #294 paradox42

What brands are good?

Growing up in a liberal household has left me woefully ignorant about guns.

I only know the basics:

1) Don't point the gun at anything you don't want dead.
2) Assume the gun is ready to fire at all times.

I've been using firearms since I was 10 years old.

If you aren't accustomed to them.
1) Sign up for a NRA or similar basic safety and handling course at your local range.
2) When you done that pay for some one on one instruction.
3) At that point rent different models at the range and find what caliber, type and makes you are comfortable with.
4) Become familiar with all the local laws pertaining to carrying, self defense etc.
5) Set aside time to regularly practice.

I understand your point. People have been martyred for their faith - Joan of Arc, and countless others. No one promised her 72 virgins. Let's not even to there as to the gender question.

Give a .38 revolver a shot. Its different but maybe more your thing.

Than a rifle....223 sounds ok - but .308 and 30-06 is nice too.

See how long he will last showing a picture of Mohammad with a 9 year old girl bride, the original pedophile.

Hardly the original.

Look, folks, I keep seeing this here, and there's a couple things I want to point out:

1. Mohammed's other wives, AFAIK, were grown-ups. Khadija was his senior by quite a bit.

2. We're talking about a community (early medieval Arabia) in which I'm pretty sure marriages of very young girls for political reasons were not uncommon.

3. Aisha, who grew up to become a religious leader in her own right, deserves better than to be a nameless figure in a regular crack on Muhammed.

The ick factor is quite real, here, but guys, IT WAS THE SEVENTH CENTURY. Mohammed wasn't a pedophile, he was a man of a very distant and very foreign time and place.

Taking war to civilians like Sherman did in the 1860s is, today considered a war crime.

369 godfrey  Thu, Mar 26, 2009 12:18:36pm

Glazov gets a bit too psychological here, but it's plausible:

In rejecting his own society, the [hard Leftist] believer spurns the values of democracy and individual freedom, which are anathema to him, since he has miserably failed to cope with both the challenges they pose and the possibilities they offer. Tortured by his personal alienation, which is accompanied by feelings of self-loathing, the believer craves a fairy-tale world where no individuality exists, and where human estrangement is thus impossible. The believer fantasizes about how his own individuality and self will be submerged within the collective whole.

Even if you're skeptical about that psychoanalysis, the basic ideas driving a Marxist "analysis" of things have several huge consequences:

This is a long tradition of the Left: progressives have always assumed that they understand the world much better than the people for whom they purport to speak. In terms of the terror war, there exists an obvious and profound racism in the believer’s disposition, since the implication is that Muslims and Arabs are not bright enough to understand their own circumstances, and therefore their explanations of their own actions cannot be taken seriously.

Thus while bin Laden, Zarqawi, and Moussaoui may insist that the holy jihad is motivated by the desire to spread sharia throughout the world, to erase individual freedom, and to kill, convert, or subjugate infidels, the Western leftists is constrained to rationalize that they are saying such things only because they have been hurt by capitalism and Western imperialism. As David Horowitz points out, the leftist holds the Marxist perspective that religion is nothing more than a thought structure rooted in suffering under capitalism. Once the oppression stops, the believer assumes, the Islamist conceptions of Allah and jihad (which the believer privately considers ridiculous but would never dare say so in public) will simply disappear. Believers, therefore, inevitably deny the Islamic dimension that the terrorists themselves insist is their impetus for terror.

That is partly right, but the Marxism Horowitz attacks here is often referred to as the "vulgar" kind, the kind that sees ideology as simply the "epiphenomenon" (function of) underlying economic realities. Newer Marxists -- such as Gramsci and all the rest -- see things as more complicated than that, and this has led them to talk a lot about the power of language to control perception to further their communist ends. So we could add to Horowitz's analysis by saying that hard Left believers also insist that the jihad problem is in large part a problem of language (which they call "discourse"). This is why they refuse to name things accurately -- because they are not trying to reflect reality, but shape it. If they're successful linguistically, they think, the jihad problem will disappear.

Wrong on all counts.

Look, the medieval Church--well after Mohammed's day--took a hard line insisting that girls could not be married before the age of twelve. What does that mean? It means that in early medieval Europe girls, especially noble heiresses WERE being married before that age, and the Church moved to stop it. Good on them. India has been working to ban girls as young as eight or nine being married for over a hundred years now, and the fight isn't won yet. That's Hindus as well as Muslims.

I'm not justifying anything--I'll happily criticize any culture that still practices child marriages, and protest against such. But the past is a foreign country, and often a very unpleasant one. Pointing fingers at Mohammed for a pedophile--which evidence does not suggest he was in any clinical sense--makes no sense, unless we're going to point fingers at everyone. And it distracts from issues we can address in the here and now.

If we're Israel's best friend, and we don't condemn this past-sell-by-date* cartoonist for this, we slip the line, and allow not-so-subtly anti-semitic nations (hello, France) permission to slip a little, too.

Um, according to reports made by him, he had sex with a girl when she was nine years old. In what way can that not be considered pedophila? Because some other people did it too?

I'm willing to concede the word, if you feel it's important. The point I'm trying to make is that Mohammed's marriage to Aisha does not point to some specific moral failing or sexual twistedness of the man himself, which is what is being implied by the repeated identification of him as a pedophile by critics of Islam.

If people really want to get worked up about child marriage in the early medieval world, I'm down for it, but it seems smarter to focus on, perhaps, trying to end child marriages in our own day. Finger-pointing and yells of 'ha-ha, your prophet was a perv' seem silly to me.

re: #400 Thanos

Orders of magnitude. We weren't running death camps. We ran internment camps. We rounded up people based on their country of origin, confiscated their property (or allowed it to be looted), denied them due process, and broke up families. Like I said, the only thing missing was the massive murders (and you can kill by starvation).

re: #8 buzzsawmonkey

The draftsmanship is superior to the now-famous "monkey" cartoon, but in terms of clarity of metaphor it is just as ill-conceived.

Well, the difference here is that the image in question is clearly Jew-hating. There is no other way to interpret it.

Even though some thin-skinned persons or agitators may have (mis)interpreted as such, the dead monkey cartoon was pretty clearly NOT intended to be racist, as it tied together two contemporaneous events (the shooting of a rampant ape and the bailout).

415 Throbert McGee  Thu, Mar 26, 2009 1:29:27pm

Has anyone pointed out the two horizontal bars at the top and bottom of the cartoon? One serves as the ground; the other is cleverly disguised as a trail of smoke drifting in the sky above.

But the defense offered by Oliphant and his editors will be -- if they haven't offered it already -- that those two bars or stripes bracketing the Star of David clearly turn an otherwise anti-Semitic cartoon into a legitimate political critique of Israel, the self-styled "free" "democracy" and "human-rights oasis" whose national flag has a stellated hexagon with a stripe above and below.

(And how do I know this'll be their defense, with or without the scare quotes? Because political cartoonists have done this before -- they can draw the Star of David fucking the bloody eye sockets of Arab children with its hentai tentacle cocks, so long as they remember to put the star between two horizontal stripes. It's like a cootie-protection shot that immunizes them from accusations of Judenhass.)

re: #400 Thanos

You are truly challenged if you think they were the same. In the German camps not a blade of grass was present, because it all got eaten. That's a starting point to rethink your statement over.


Perhaps you should ask some of the survivors of our internment camps how much they enjoyed their 'vacation'. We did some pretty outrageous things to different ethnic groups (Japanese, Germans, Italians) during WWII in the name of security.

Conditions in the U.S. Camps

The U.S. internment camps were overcrowded and provided poor living conditions. According to a 1943 report published by the War Relocation Authority (the administering agency), Japanese Americans were housed in "tarpaper-covered barracks of simple frame construction without plumbing or cooking facilities of any kind." Coal was hard to come by, and internees slept under as many blankets as they were alloted. Food was rationed out at an expense of 48 cents per internee, and served by fellow internees in a mess hall of 250-300 people.

Leadership positions within the camps were only offered to the Nisei, or American-born, Japanese. The older generation, or the Issei, were forced to watch as the government promoted their children and ignored them.

Eventually the government allowed internees to leave the concentration camps if they enlisted in the U.S. Army. This offer was not well received. Only 1,200 internees chose to do so.

They were forced to evacuate their homes and leave their jobs; in some cases family members were separated and put into different camps. President Roosevelt himself called the 10 facilities "concentration camps."

Some Japanese Americans died in the camps due to inadequate medical care and the emotional stresses they encountered. Several were killed by military guards posted for allegedly resisting orders.

Its called (appropriately enough) a "Speedloader".

Bianchi makes plastic strips called "Speed strips" that will hold six revolver cartridges in a line. These aren't nearly so fast to reload with as the speedloaders, but they have the advantage of lying flatter in your pocket.

If you want semantic correctness, the thing you stick in the bottom of a semi-automatic pistol is properly termed a "magazine".

A "clip" is a (usually) bent piece of steel that holds a number of cartridges together for fast loading. . .usually into a bolt-action rifle.

re: #262 Earick

My mother was born and raised in Germany. As a girl, she sat on her swing and watched as the jews were rounded up.
My father, an MP, was at that same time rounding up American Japs.

Though the difference in treatment of the two groups is monumental, it must be stated... WE ALREADY DID IT ONCE!

Ummm, I am not accepting the premise that what we did in WWII regarding the Japanese is the same as what happened to the Jews during the same period.

What we did was wrong. I know the historical reference to how both civilians and military were treated by the Japanese military running their camps. That wasn't a part of the discussion. Do we base what we do to innocents on how our innocents are treated? Wrong is wrong regardless of who does it and what the US did during WWII to those interned in our camps was wrong. Why don't you read up on some history?

re: #294 paradox42

What brands are good?

Growing up in a liberal household has left me woefully ignorant about guns.

I only know the basics:

1) Don't point the gun at anything you don't want dead.
2) Assume the gun is ready to fire at all times.

3) Keep your finger off the trigger until the sights are on your target.
4) Know your target and what is beyond it.

For a shotgun, you can't go wrong with Mossberg 500 or Remington 870 series.

For a handgun, there are MANY good makes, but its hard to go wrong with any .357 revolver that says "Smith and Wesson" on its side. With semi-automatics, there are many good makes, but its also hard to go wrong with any pistol made by Sigarms, Beretta, CZ, and a few others so long as the model in question fits your hand. You have a lot more latitude with semi-automatic guns to pick different sorts of models, depending on personal preferences.

Hmmm, so the civilians held by the Japanese faced starvation, non existent medical care, death by over work, rapes (in the case of women), forced prostitution, beatings, etc. The only difference was that the Japanese didn't engage in GENOCIDE/MUDERS, except on the Chinese. Sounds a whole lot like went on in the death camps run by Europeans.

What we did was unacceptable for our society and EXCEPT for the genocide/murders our camps were run like those holding the Jews. Suggest you read up on how civilians held by the Japanese were treated.

No, not to eat it -- rather, the star is like a barking Rottweiler driving the woman and baby to the edge of a cliff. (I only just now noticed that the lower right-hand corner of the cartoon is to be read as a sharp vertical drop, as well as visually suggesting the corner of a flag. Contrast this with the lower left-side, where the ground can be understood to continue out of the cartoon's frame.)

Er, wait, did I say "edge of a cliff"? Silly me, I should've been more precise: it's the edge of an excavated trench, or possibly the edge of a natural ravine as at Babi Yar -- but in either case it's meant to represent a mass grave towards which the evil Mogen David is driving the Gazans.

I wrote this email msg to the NY Times' Public Editor:

I read a report that you published this cartoon:

Oliphant cartoon inserted here

All I can say is, this is a level of antisemitism that I expect to see in the Arab media, or in historical representations of Nazi propaganda. That you would publish something like this appalls me. This is beyond the pale.

If I subscribed to your paper, I'd be terminating my subscription right now. I occasionally look at articles on your web site. From now on, I'll be doing it with AdBlock turned on.

I got back a quick reply:

Thank you for your email. I am sorry you were offended by the Oliphant cartoon, The Times received many similar comments. Please read the explanation from Craig Whitney, the Assistant Managing Editor at The Times:

Catherine - The offending cartoon by Oliphant will not be published in The New York Times. It did not appear on our Website yesterday, either. What does appear there, by contract with uclick.com, is an "Oliphant" button on the cartoons page that, yesterday, got those who clicked on it to that cartoon, which is now relegated to the Oliphant archive.

The contract dates back years and the Achilles heel in the arrangement is that we do not review the feed editorially. Nobody at The Times, therefore, made any decision yesterday to "publish" the cartoon. But, though the click gets you to a uclick.com page, the banner on the page says "The New York Times .....Cartoons."

We will review our procedures and arrangements, and I don't know what you want to say about this to all the queriers, but this is the arrangement. I haven't had time to go back to see if I can find who negotiated it and what the chances of revising it are.
best
Craig

I hope this helps explain the Times' role in your being exposed to the offending cartoon, and The Times' position on its content.

Sincerely,
Scott Garapolo
Office of the Public Editor
The New York Times

Note: The public editor's opinions are his own and do not represent those of The New York Times.

I went to the NY Times web site, and it seems that his description of how you would get to Oliphant's antisemitic cartoon via the NY Times web site is correct.

It may have been more a case of inadvertent incompetence than anti-Jewish malice. But they still deserve to get hammered, and I hope everyone here sends them an email: public@nytimes.com is the address.

Our internment camps were hell holes. We incarcerated people without due process. Poor food, little sanitation, little medical care. The only difference between our internment camps and those run by both the Japanese and Germans is that we weren't interested in murdering the occupants through many different means (gassing, starving, gunning them down, etc.). I am familiar with the term POWs and knew that Japan was not a signer to the Geneva Conventions during WWII.

I am referring to the camps run on US soil during WWII for internment of Japanese, German, and Italians and yes, except for the murders the conditions in our camps were very close to those run by the Axis powers.

446 Throbert McGee  Thu, Mar 26, 2009 2:38:43pm

I can't decide whether the sword (as opposed to a modern rifle) is intended to have a specific meaning beyond generically signifying military force.

The design of the sword immediately suggested to me the weapon of Crusading knight -- that is, a figure historically associated with Christian militarism, rather than Jewish. So possibly it's a detail consciously chosen by Oliphant to deflect charges of anti-Semitism, by implying that mostly-Muslim Gaza is being driven to the cliff by the combined policies of mostly-Jewish Israel and mostly-Christian America. And whether the headless Christian Crusader is in control of the Jewish attack dog, or being guided by it, is left to the interpretations of the reader.

But then again, it could just as easily be a generic symbol of martial violence.

was it a black mark on the U.S.? yes.

austere is not remotely the same as the viscous evil perpetrated in the nazi death camps on a daily basis and the millions who werent gassed to death they were literally starved to death. the japanese internees were never subjected to a campaign of starvation.

and you never answered my question.

where would you rather be? in an american internment camp as a japanese american?

or in a nazi internment camp?

and you cant tell me that if you thru out the question of the nazi murdering you wouldnt care which camp you would have ended up in!

The problem I have here is that I don't hold the U.S. to a general world standard, I hold us to our own standard. Yes, people were treated far worse in many parts of the world at the time. FAR worse. So unbelievably worse it makes the mind shut down kind of worse.

That doesn't make internment right.

Sort of like it still being wrong to beat your wife, even though some wives in India are being set on fire by their in-laws.

re: #446 Throbert McGee

I can't decide whether the sword (as opposed to a modern rifle) is intended to have a specific meaning beyond generically signifying military force.

The design of the sword immediately suggested to me the weapon of Crusading knight -- that is, a figure historically associated with Christian militarism, rather than Jewish. So possibly it's a detail consciously chosen by Oliphant to deflect charges of anti-Semitism, by implying that mostly-Muslim Gaza is being driven to the cliff by the combined policies of mostly-Jewish Israel and mostly-Christian America. And whether the headless Christian Crusader is in control of the Jewish attack dog, or being guided by it, is left to the interpretations of the reader.

But then again, it could just as easily be a generic symbol of martial violence.

Throbert, I think that thinking about this too much might be bad for your health. The symbolism is...highly problematic.

Hmmm, the Axis was hell bent to exterminate all Jews. We took in around 120,000 people and denied them basic human rights. Except for murdering the occupants of our camps our treatment of the detainees was quite similar to the way the axis powers dealt with their detainees. How hard is that to understand? Our detainees went hungry. Our detainees were denied medical care. Our detainees suffered in freezing temperatures. But you say that the Jews had it worse. Yes, I would agree with that. The Axis was trying to exterminate every Jew on the face of the earth. When you don't care if your detainees either live or die then the treatment descends into neglect to the point of death.

Roosevelt called them concentration camps.

What happened to the Japanese was:

They were rounded up.
Families were separated.
They lost all of their possessions.
They were locked up behind barbed wire fences.
They were fed substandard rations.
They were denied medical care.
They were indefinitely held in overcrowded facilities.
Sanitation was minimal since no plumbing was in the unheated buildings.

500 Render  Thu, Mar 26, 2009 4:56:42pm

“Union coal miner's strike of 1943? Government took over the operation of the mines.”

-The government also took over the miners. Everything in your comment #487 is also true of what happened to those coal miners and their families. Ever heard of the company store? Uncle Sam took that over too. The mining companies and the union that ruled them through intimidation and fear also owned houses the miners lived in, and the land those houses sat on. Armed soldiers were placed in those towns, quitting the mines or the union was not a legal (or safe) option for the duration of the war.

“Lincoln's civilian prison camps? If they were anything like Andersonville, then they were hell holes.”

- They were bad enough considering the era, but that isn’t the point. Everything you described in your comment #487 was also done to those American citizens (Confederate sympathizers from northern states) by Abraham Lincoln’s direct (and documented) orders. So was Lincoln a nazi? I mean after all, that is kinda what this Charles Johnson/LGF post is about, isn’t it? I thought it was about Pat Oliphant comparing Israel to nazi Germany. You seemed to be way off on this tangent where you were comparing Roosevelt to _itler, US internment camps to nazi and Imperial Japanese death camps, and you are definitely missing just how important that distinction is - to a Jew.
“Racial segregation? Pretty bad when you consider the efforts put forth by a group people who had little to gain by supporting the federal government. Roosevelt? Not anywhere near either a _itler or Stalin. Both of those guys, by that time had the blood of millions on their hands. Roosevelt was beset by issues of his policies violating the Constitution both before and during WWII. The only thing that saved him was WWII rolling around when it did and providing nearly full employment.”

- So then, US internment (concentration) camps were not anywhere near comparable to the nazi or Imperial Japanese camps? Thanks for your participation in this exercise.

“As to threats, I don't take them lightly.”

- Then perhaps you might understand just how important this distinction is – to a Jew.

-There is another point you seem to be misunderstanding.

- Pat Oliphants cartoon isn’t offensive. It’s a warning sign. It’s a threat.

Japan considered overseas Japanese citizens of Japan, regardless of the citizenship status of their birth or overseas citizenship, based on ethnicity only:
Shoal of Time, a History of Hawaii
Some US-Japanese citizens spied for Japan prior to the Pearl Harbor attack.

See also Permanent Resident Alien vs. Enemy Alien

I detest these kind of equivalencies, another "Oh how horrible we are" scenario. Racism was not unique to the USA or Japan, either then or now. Go to japan, as I have (I love the country and people, and can speak and read passable Japanese) and you'll quickly find out what a "Gaijin" is, especially if you try to get a drink in a bar and get turned out "Japanese only, no gaijin"

Reading was suggested for us, well I've got one too.
War without Mercy :Race and Power in the Pacific War
You'll find racism was not confined to the USA. You might ask some Koreans about it also concerning Japanese attitudes toward them, try "comfort women".

Anti Semitism is alive and well and in the open and gets no particular criticism.

Remember Michael F. Scheuer, the CIA official who didn't catch or stop Bin Ladin:

There is indeed an identifiable fifth column of pro-Israel U.S. citizens -- I have described them here and elsewhere as Israel-Firsters -- who have consciously made Israel's survival and protection their first priority, and who see worth in America only to the extent that its resources and manpower can be exploited to protect and further the interests of Israel in its religious war-to-the-death with the Arabs. These are disloyal citizens in much the same sense that the Civil War's disloyal northern "Copperheads" sought to help the Confederates destroy the Union. The Israel-Firsters help Israel suborn U.S. citizens to spy for Israel; they use their fortunes and political action organizations to buy U.S. politicians with campaign donations; and most of all they use their ready access to the media to disguise their own disloyalty by denigrating as anti-Semites or appeasers fellow citizens who dare to challenge them. The Israel-Firsters are unquestionably enemies of America’s republican experiment and will have to be destroyed as the Copperheads were destroyed -- by the people, after a full public deabte, at the ballot box.

re: #296 essayons7

Yikes, .22 vs .223! You're comparing apples to grapefruits. This advice seems a little whack.

A .22 is highly-glorified (but extremely useful!) pellet gun. Extremely cheap to shoot but I'd only carry as a last ditch mouse gun. Rimfire cartridge for plinking or killing squirrels within 50-80 yards.

A .223 is what a Ruger Ranch Rifle or an AR-15 . It's a centerfire bottlenecked rifle cartridge. It can much more easily punch through walls and hurt innocent bystanders. Both are fairly awful choices for home defense. Unless you live in the middle of nowhere. Then pimp out your Bushmaster with all kinds of goodies I suppose. Although if you have to hurt someone they will paint you as a psycho gun nut in a court of law.

Video

Seriously, just get a Remington 870 12-gauge pump for your first gun --
about $250. Less if used. Probably the bedside go-to gun of most knowing gun people. Have someone show you how to use it. Learn how to clean it. (not so important in this weapon but still important). Research ammo but Wally World cheap birdshot if fine for most home defense situations.

Practice. And be safe. Then when you've learned that buy a pistol or revolver in a caliber you can safely and affordably learn to shoot.

re: #522 Iron Fist

glocks are exellent, and safe, but for some one with no experience my worry is they wont handle it right and it wont cycle properly, the flex in the polymer frame sometimes keeps the action from resetting for some women becuase they cant hold the gun in the right way. ive not seen this problem with guys (unless they think thier a gangsta and shooting with a bent wrist.

right now the better deal in a polymer frame is the springfield xd in any caliber.

the best deal in a 357 magnum snubby is a ruger sp101.

im not seeing the immediate value in an ar-15 style 223 rifle for home defense even though I own one. but I would also try to acquire one and a stock of ammo for the future.

I would also suggest a remington 870 with a dear slayer barrel and a tube extension for a few extra shot shells of buckshot which is what ive set for home defense. its an exellent shotgun, reliable, priced reasonably. I payed around 120 for a deer slayer barrel if I remember correctly, and I picked up a tube extension for under 30 bucks.


shazzam instant death dealing machine without the pesky problem of looking like a nut weilding a black rifle commonly refered to by the msm as an asault weapon. even if your in your own home a zealous anti gun prosecutor might try to nifong you for defending yourself in your own home with a rifle. but a shotgun just doesnt have the dark side cache he can use to demigog you with. and its really less likely if you shoot it in your own home for any of the pellets to hurt an innocent nieghbor because of over penetration from your home through his home.

re: #522 Iron Fist

I agree. A .22 is GREAT first gun! I just objected to this weirdo "get a .22 or .223" comment from the said poster. Very misleading. I love shooting my friend's AR-15 in .223 but a) it's too expensive for me b) getting more expensive c) not even imaginably practical in anything but a Red Dawn situation and then you're dead anyway, so what. If things get bad you're much better off having a beat-up 12-gauge pump and a 500 shells and a 10/22 with 1000 rounds and a 9mm pistol with 500 rounds (this cost like what 200 dollars? to stock this much ammo?) This cost wouldn't fill but a dozen hi-cap magazines in any assault rifle these days.

All else you say is true. The .22 is probably the best SHTF gun there is by virtue of availability and cheapness of ammo. By virtue of cheapness and ease of handling, I'd recommend a couple .22s, 9mm, and 12 or 20 gauge weapons in every household.
