Obama Surrounds Himself with Anti-Semites and Other Bigots
No Place For Slander In Jewish Discourse by Ira N. Forman of the National Jewish Democratic Council warns against sinat chinam, or baseless hatred. History abounds with examples, such as anti-Semites attempting to blame problems like bad harvests and plagues on Jews, Nero blaming Christians for the fire that destroyed Rome, Inquisitors and witch-hunters inventing heretics and witches to justify their existences along with the worst atrocities in history, and so on. Orwell’s 1984 includes a fictional example of a subversive named Goldstein, who may or may not even exist.
Sinat chinam, or baseless hatred, also has an opposite: the sanitization, whitewashing, or denial of genuine dangers and evils. This seems to be what NJDC is trying to do with Barack Obama and his anti-Semitic and anti-Israel connections. America First downplayed the menace of Nazism, and there were even Jewish collaborators who, whether willing or not, told other Jews that the cattle cars were going to take them to recreation camps instead of extermination facilities. Although Joseph McCarthy may have advanced himself through baseless persecution of imaginary Communists, genuine Communists and their fellow travelers were indeed trying to undermine the United States during the Cold War. Today, the Islamic Supremacist world tries to present a friendly face to the Judeo-Christian world while plotting its destruction. Its accomplices include Judas goats (literally trained animals that are kept alive and fed well so they will lead others of their own species to slaughter.) Holocaust denial and its equivalents are examples as well.
Dolores Umbridge of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is an outstanding if fictional example; she punishes Harry Potter for saying that Lord Voldemort has returned, even though Voldemort and his accomplice committed murder right in front of Potter. Grima Wormtongue of Lord of the Rings, who keeps telling his king that the Dark Lord is not a threat to the realm, is another. All these are the opposite of sinat chinam, and we really need a good word or simple phrase to describe them.
Let us begin, however, with baseless hatred. The National Jewish Democratic Council knows all about sinat chinam, because it is so good at practicing and promoting it. The following screenshots from Bubbie versus Christians and Jesus, also known as Bubbie versus the GOP, are shining examples of baseless hatred, paranoia, and bigotry for self-serving political gain.
We think the National “Jewish” Democratic Council may really consist of vampires, because it has such a phobia of crosses. If you don’t believe in vampires, though, maybe this is just more anti-Christian sinat chinam for pure political gain.
Two wrongs don’t make a right, however, and the NJDC’s promotion of sinat chinam does not make this practice right for others. Far be it from us to ignore the arguments that Mr. Forman is trying to make in “No Place For Slander In Jewish Discourse.”
For an example of how sinat chinam is beginning to inject itself into our community’s discourse, one need only look at the recent smears against Senator Obama aimed at Jewish voters. What started as fallacious emails claiming the senator is Muslim, was sworn in on the Koran, and cavorts with anti-Semites, etc., has now made its way into semi-respectable websites and even onto the op-ed page of the Jerusalem Post.
What we have here is a mixture of fact and fiction, perhaps with the hope that a packaging of truth will hide the falsehoods within. Obama is most certainly not a Muslim. He is a long-time member of a Christian church, albeit one whose pastor, Jeremiah Wright, is a racist who says that “white America” got its “wake-up” call on 9/11. The statement that Obama took his oath of office on the Koran is confusion, whether innocent or deliberate, with Rep. Keith Ellison. We think, however, that the NJDC will have a lot more trouble convincing anyone that Obama does not cavort with anti-Semites.
NJDC will have a hard time convincing us that Al Sharpton’s National Action Network photomanipulated Mr. Obama into this picture (and others that appeared at its Web site), or that Obama did not say, “Reverend Sharpton is a voice for the voiceless, and a voice for the dispossessed. What National Action Network has done is so important to change America, and it must be changed from the bottom up.” Nonetheless, Mr. Forman takes issue with the assertion that Obama cavorts with anti-Semites. We invite our readers to judge for themselves.
Democrats Embrace ‘Impresario of Hatred’ by Fred Siegel
It would have taken no great effort for the reporters covering the Apollo debate to have walked across 125th Street from the theater to visit Freddy’s Fashion Mart, where in 1995 eight people died in a murderous rampage inspired by Mr. Sharpton. …[Sharpton] turned a landlord-tenant dispute between the Jewish owner of Freddy’s and a black subtenant into a theater of hatred. Picketers from Mr. Sharpton’s National Action Network, sometimes joined by “the Rev.” himself, marched daily outside the store, screaming about “bloodsucking Jews” and “Jew bastards” and threatening to burn the building down. After weeks of increasingly violent rhetoric, one of the protesters, Roland Smith, took Mr. Sharpton’s words about ousting the “white interloper” to heart. He ran into the store shouting, “It’s on!” He shot and wounded three whites and a Pakistani, whom he apparently mistook for a Jew. Then he set the fire, which killed five Hispanics, one Guyanese and one African-American–a security guard whom protesters had taunted as a “cracker lover.” Smith then fatally shot himself.
What part of “bloodsucking Jews” and “Jew bastards” does the National Jewish Democratic Council not understand–or, more precisely, what is it about these phrases that it does not want Jewish voters to understand? Remember that a Judas goat is the opposite of sinat chinam. While sinat chinam involves baseless hatred and paranoia, a Judas goat misleads others of its own kind about the reality and proximity of genuine evil.
http://www.nationalreview.com/20Mar00/nordlinger032000.html adds, In 1995-four years into the putative New Sharpton-there was another, fatal case in which Sharpton had a guilty hand: Freddy’s Fashion Mart. In Harlem, a white store owner — no, worse: a Jewish one — was accused of driving a black store owner out of business. At one of the many rallies meant to scare the Jewish owner away, Sharpton charged that “there is a systemic and methodical strategy to eliminate our people from doing business off 125th Street. I want to make it clear . . . that we will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business.” Sharpton’s colleague, Morris Powell, said of the Jewish owner — Sharpton’s “white interloper” — “We’re going to see that this cracker suffers. Reverend Sharpton is on it.”
We would really be fascinated to learn what NJDC does not find anti-Semitic (or racist) about terminology like “bloodsucking Jew,” “Jew bastard,” “white interloper,” “see that this cracker suffers” and, for that matter, “Kill the Jews.”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Sharpton#Crown_Heights_Riot A visiting rabbinical student from Australia by the name of Yankel Rosenbaum, 29, was killed during the rioting by a mob shouting “Kill the Jew.” Sharpton has been seen by some commentators as inflaming tensions with remarks such as “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house” and referring to Jews as “diamond merchants.”
Right: the National Action Network’s slogan “No Justice, No Peace” is (based on context) Sharptonese for “Kill the Jews.” It seems that, whenever Sharpton and his followers start to chant it, Jews like Yankel Rosenbaum or employees of Jewish businesses like Freddy’s Fashion Mart tend to get killed. However, NJDC wants us to believe that Barack Obama does not consort with anti-Semites, endorse and promote anti-Semites, and seek the political support of anti-Semites. This is the same organization that says (and we agree) that Ron Paul’s passive acceptance of $500 from Stormfront.org leader and former Ku Klux Klansman Don Black makes him unfit to be President. We call him “Ron Paul 1488, the Stormfront.org Candidate.”
No Place For Slander In Jewish Discourse continues,
They proceed to do everything they can to associate [Obama] with Islam, anti-Semitism, and anti-Israel sentiment. Ignoring Senator Obama’s voting record, statements on Israel, and commitment to combating anti-Semitism, the authors seek only to create fear. They do so with half-truths, shaky logic, and hypocrisy.
We didn’t know that Obama, who has missed a lot of Senate votes, had much of a voting record, but we digress. We recognize that he has given considerable lip service to support for Israel and opposition to anti-Semitism, but actions–like appearing arm in arm with a prominent racist and anti-Semite while giving him a glowing (like the embers of Freddy’s Fashion Mart) endorsement, attending a racist church, and now accepting the endorsement of the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and anti-Catholic hate group MoveOn.org speak far more eloquently than any number of words.
We were surprised and sorry to learn today, actually from the NJDC itself, of the death of Rep. Tom Lantos. In late November 2006, however, NJDC chose to whitewash and sanitize MoveOn.org from promoting commentary of the following nature on its now-disgraced Action Forum, over which its moderators were exercising editorial control. The moderators, in fact, deleted and censored other material such as condemnation of Al Sharpton, Palestinian terrorism, and hate speech while letting the following stand, i.e. they exercised editorial control in its favor.
Congressman Tom Lantos told PM Olmert of Israel that he wants to freeze the $ 230 million U.S. aid package to Lebanon. Lantos is the ranking democrat on the House Foreign Relations Comte. Lantos said, “The [Lebanese] aid package should be witheld until the Lebanese government displays responsibility”. Responsibility ? Israel is guilty of war crimes in their cowardely attack on Lebanon and the whining, arrogant Jew wants Lebanon to demonstrate responsibility ! This is another example of how many Jews/Zioniosts in our Congress use the U.S. for their own greedy purposes. DUMP ISRAEL.
14 out of 17 MoveOn.org Action Forum member voted to AGREE with this.
Right, but NJDC would still have us believe that Barack Obama does not consort with anti-Semites while soliciting and embracing their endorsements.
We can all see how AIPAC/Israel has taken control of America. Not to get nasty but jews have a long history of subverting governments for their own enrichment and glory to the detriment of whole societies. Many more than “6 million” have died by semetic aggression, 100’s of millions even, remember the conqueror writes history. Even the roman empire feared jewish power. Over and over again, whites, particularly semites have distorted truth through their supremacist, zenophobic minds. Ariel Sharon Oct of 2001 per Kol Israel, “… Don’t worry about america, we control america and the americans know it.” There is a mental pathology gripping my tribe, as the native americans say, “white man have forked tongue”, we must become enlightened, or we will be destroyed.

10 out of 13 MoveOn people voted agreement with an outright blood libel of Jews.
In truth, Zionists have committed more massacres per capita than any other people on earth since Adam and Eve. In fact, one can safely say that wanton killings and massacres are piece and parcel of being Zionist.
I understand that there are Jews who condemn the pornographic slaughter in Gaza, people like Uri Avneri and like-minded Jews. We salute those people, who are our natural partners in the quest for a just and durable peace in Palestine.
However, it is also true that the vast bulk of Israeli Jews are enjoying the killings of Palestinian children and are congratulating each other.
Just take a look at Jewish internet sites in Israel and abroad and see how Jewish youngsters are congratulating each other on the killings of these helpless toddlers in Gaza.
This murderous cannibalism doesn’t come out of the blue. Today in Israel, school curricula are dominated by the Talmud, especially a specific Talmudic text called Shulhan Aruch.
In this text, Jews are commanded to slaughter non-Jews who are viewed more or less as animals or at least lesser human beings.
Ira Forman (the author of the above piece on baseless hatred) had this to say at the time:
Jewish voters should take comfort in knowing that MoveOn.org is not a haven for anti-Semitism and the organization will renounce and remove any postings of the sort. Leave it to Republicans to not allow the truth to get in the way of campaigning.
National Jewish Democratic Council
Right, Ira, and “Arbeit Macht Frei” really means that work will set you free. The truth is that MoveOn.org removed only a few token pieces of hate speech (the “Jew Lieberman” one being an example) before having to shut down its Action Forum permanently–not because NJDC and ADL stood up to these closet Jew-haters and Catholic-bashers, but because we and a couple of our friends did. These collections of hate speech were all havested from the Action Forum long after Eli Pariser told the public that MoveOn.org removed it. Our Catholic readers should meanwhile take a close look at this page, preferably on empty stomachs.
Removing all Israeli obsessed Jews from congress would stop a lot of killing.

As stated above, it is a matter of record that MoveOn.org exercised editorial control in favor of this anti-Semitic hate speech, as well as hate speech against the so-called “Catholic pedophiles of America” and evangelical Christians, who were accused of perpetrating election fraud. The anti-Catholic hatred was doubtlessly encouraged by this photomanipulation from MoveOn.org itself, which can easily be compared to Thomas Nast’s infamous anti-Catholic material from the 19th century.
The anti-Semitic and anti-Israel hate speech on MoveOn’s Action Forum was doubtlessly promoted and encouraged by MoveOn’s official bulletins, one of which actually cited the Electronic Intifada as a reference. Aesop told us long ago that birds of a feather flock together, and all the pro-Israel rhetoric in the world won’t erase doubts about an individual who surrounds himself with the likes of MoveOn.org and Jeremiah Wright.
Obama’s Pastor sounds more like a hate spewing imam. I am shocked this hasn’t gotten real media play (oh yeah, it’s Obama.) The more you peel back the layers of the Obama onion, the more rotten it is at its core. Obama’s checkered resume.
A FEW WEEKS AGO ON MSNBC SHOW WITH TUCKER CARLSON:
CARLSON: But Jeremiah Wright is at least a mixed bag politically. His work to improve conditions in impoverished black neighborhoods may be laudable, but his rhetoric includes attacks against white people and against Israel. Should Obama distance himself from Dr. Wright, and if so, can he effectively do that?
We welcome back to discuss that MSNBC political analyst Pat Buchanan and nationally syndicated radio show host Bill Press. Now, I have kind of liked Barack Obama from the very beginning. He seems moderate in tone. I spent all morning reading Jeremiah Wright online. All the church newsletters are available. The guy is a full-blown hater, actually. This is just pulled at random.
…Nine-eleven, [Wright] says: “White America got their wake-up call after 9-11. White America and the Western world came to realize people of color had not gone away, faded in the woodwork, or just disappeared as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring black concerns.” So 9-11 was payback for white racism. I mean, it goes on, and I will read more.
…CARLSON: Here is the Israeli thing, we were talking about this at the commercial break. This is quoting now the Reverend Wright: “The Israelis have illegally occupied Palestinian territories for over 40 years now. Divestment has now hit the table again as a strategy to wake the business community and wake up Americans concerning the injustice and the racism under which the Palestinians have lived because of Zionism.”
He compares Israel to South Africa repeatedly. He attacks Israel as a racist state.

No Place For Slander In Jewish Discourse concludes,
It is time all of us— organizations and individuals— take the responsibility for outing and yes, even shaming, the purveyors of sinat chinam in our community — to protect our values and to protect our community’s genuine political interests.
We agree, and we say further that we must out and shame those who whitewash anti-Semites, racists, and stooges for militant Islam, make excuses for them, or otherwise sanitize them to conceal their activities from the public. Furthermore, we believe that truth and facts must take precedence over what the NJDC calls “our” (NJDC is certainly not speaking for us) “genuine political interests,” which we presume means electing anyone with a “D” after his name no matter how reprehensible and vile his character might be.
3.2 Million Members Nationwide Mobilize to Get Out the Progressive Vote for Senator Obama
Group Has Over 1.7 Million Members In Super Tuesday States
In a resounding vote today, MoveOn.org Political Action’s members nationwide voted to endorse Senator Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination for President. The group, with 3.2 million members nationwide and over 1.7 million members in Super Tuesday states, will immediately begin to mobilize on behalf of Senator Obama. The vote favored Senator Obama to Senator Clinton by 70.4% to 29.6%.
If Obama were a man of decency and character, he would reject this endorsement. Instead, he has chosen to stand with the anti-Semitic and anti-Catholic hate speech shown above, as well as the following vicious smear of a distinguished serving officer.
