The Balrog Of Bigotry In The Democrat Base

Don’t you just love the vile stuff that shows up on “liberal� and “progressive� websites these days. The KOSsacks and Dummies are venomous, and there is plenty of HuffPoison over at Aarriana’s place, but the neuro-toxins are on display among the “peace-loving and tolerant� affiliated with MoveOn.Org.

So no doubt the media and the Left will soon turn their attention to the vicious anti-Semitism the followers and members of a political organization that donates millions to Democratic candidates and uses the Web to whip up support for its policies.

I am referring to; an entity that claims it is merely the vehicle of "real Americans — from carpenters to stay-at-home moms to business leaders — we work together to realize the progressive vision of our country's founders." To the extent that is a reflection of its membership, it is also a reflection of the opinions and sentiments it shares about its fellow Americans and citizens of the world. And boy do the Moveon folks hate Jews.

* * *

After Sen. Joe Lieberman lost the Democratic primary in Connecticut, one Moveon member stated: "Jew Lieberman first step. Corporate Clinton will be next. Impeachment of BushCo will be third." This one came in with 95 percent of Moveon members responding approving the "Jew Lieberman" post. (Moveon helpfully records the percent of people agreeing with each post.)

Many postings creatively connect the need to eliminate Jewish influence with the goal of impeaching President Bush: Here's a typical one, which also received a high approval rating:

"I was reading some where someone posting about how Israel has lost world respect because of their murderous rampage throughout Lebanon?

Talk about loss of respect? What do you think the rest of the world thinks of ZioUSA now after seeing the BushCo spectacle, with Rice & Bolton flailing in the wind for the Zionazis against all world opinion?

Loss of respect is putting it mildly.

Impeachment of Bush is the only remedy."

Yeah, there is Bush plenty of Bush Derangement Syndrome at work, but the really vile stuff is the anti-Semitism. Calling a respected senator “Jew Lieberman� really crosses a line in this context, because it is premeditated and there was the option to edit and moderate the bigotry within. But the Democrats and media do not denounce this – though they were quick to pounce on a congressman several years back when, in a slip of the tongue which was immediately retracted, he referred to a certain homosexual congressman as “Barney Fag�. Or, as the article points out, there is the stupid “Macaca� comment of George Allen – a slur so obscure that I at one point was willing to believe that there was nothing to it, but an ongoing controversy which continues to be the fodder for political commentary and late-night humor.

I am personally struck by this comment.

"Why are the Jews so Jew-y?"

Those damn Jews – they are just so Jew-like. What next? A complaint that African-Americans are too “nigger-y�? Come on!

America has striven to slay the balrog of bigotry for many decades. Our most shining moment as a nation was the civil rights movement and the strength with which most Americans rejected such hatred as contrary to our national ethos. The Democrats, long the party of slavery, segregation, and the KKK, rejected its heritage of hate and sought to join the GOP in supporting freedom and equality of opportunity and rights for all Americans. Yet today it seems clear that a perverse pride in prejudice has taken hold in the activist wing of the Democrat party, re-embracing the night-riding nastiness of a bygone era.

And yet the decent people within the Democrat Party – and the media – stand by in silence while this horrifying freak-show continues to gain ascendancy on the Left. Dare they speak out? Or are the too filled with fear – or too much in agreement – to denounce this dangerous dogma of destruction?
