Since I made a public break with the rabid right, wingnut blogs all over the web have been sending love (read: vicious attacks) my way, which isn’t surprising since one of the reasons I listed for my departure was the vicious hate speech found everywhere on wingnut blogs. And one of the common themes that bubbles to the surface in these smear attacks is that since I’ve renounced the right, it’s now only a matter of time before I “abandon support for Israel.”
So imagine the irony when one of the right wing’s iconic heroes, Michelle Malkin, who also owns wingnut blog Hot Air, linked this morning to the following “Buzzworthy” post at white nationalist website VDARE.com:
The article to which Malkin linked is a deranged antisemitic screed by conspiracy theorist and 9/11 Truther Paul Craig Roberts, accusing Israel of committing “genocide” and ranting crazily about the “Israel lobby.”
Who’s “abandoning Israel” now?
(And note that right below the link to a white nationalist hate site, there’s a link to white supremacist blogger Robert Stacy McCain.)
“Settlers attack West Bank mosque and burn holy Muslim books” was a London Times headline on December 11, 2009.
These attacks, together with the demolition of Palestinian homes, the uprooting of Palestinians’ olive groves, the innumerable checkpoints that prevent Palestinians from accessing schools, work, and medical care, the Israeli Wall that denies Palestinians access to the land stolen from them, and the isolation and blockade of the Gaza Ghetto, are part of the Israeli government’s policy of genocide for the Palestinians.
The Israel Lobby has such power over America that even former President Jimmy Carter, a good friend of Israel, is demonized for using the polite term—apartheid—for the genocide that has occurred over the decades during which American “Christian” preachers, together with bought-and-paid-for politicians, justified Israel’s policy of slow genocide for Palestine.
