We previously reported on the National Jewish Democratic Council’s “Bubbie versus the GOP” video, which is for at least part of the time “Bubbie versus Christians and Jesus.” The problem with the video isn’t its portrayal of Republicans as red-robed cabalists and monsters–that’s just political mud-slinging–but the depiction of Christians, Jesus, and the Cross in a “This is the Enemy” context.
As shown by the Jewish Daily Forward, the hate video was published not only on the watch of NJDC Executive Director Ira Forman (the same individual who lied to Jewish voters about MoveOn.org not being a haven for anti-Semitic hate speech), but under his express supervision.
Ira Forman, executive director of the National Jewish Democratic Council, says his group commissioned the satirical cartoon, “Bubbie Versus the GOP,” in order to reach the “Generation Y” crowd that tunes into politics through such humor-laden vehicles as Jon Stewart’s cable-news satire “The Daily Show” and the Web site “JibJab,” which shows animated political parodies set to folksongs.
…The Republicans gained an ally in Anti-Defamation League National Director Abraham Foxman, who said the video “crosses the line of sensitivity” and “pits Jews against Christians” by presenting the GOP as a “star chamber court in religious garb.” [He omits the fact that a Christian Cross is the centerpiece of the cabal in question, as shown below.] He said he was “saddened and disappointed” that the NJDC had used “stereotypic forms” and “conspiracy theories” to appeal to the Jewish community. “We, who have suffered from conspiracy theories, should be against it,” he said.
The Anti-Defamation League doesn’t spell out even a fraction of it, as shown by the screenshots below.
There is no doubt that drawing a Star of David in the indicated context, and that below (“Zionist Occupied Government”) would be construed as anti-Semitic by any reasonable person, and NJDC’s use of the Cross in this context is therefore anti-Christian (“Christian Occupied Government”).
And these are the same people who accuse Ann Coulter of “hate speech” over her ill-considered comment about Jews becoming “perfected” by conversion to Christianity. While we don’t agree with it, it pales in comparison to the kind of material shown above.
