Obama Campaign Sanctioned “Zionist Thought Police” Posting

Obama campaign sanctioned blog entry that compares the “all-powerful Jewish lobby” to Hitler and Mussolini

It is now a matter of proven record that the Obama campaign exercises editorial control over my.barackobama.com, and is therefore responsible for its content. The Obama campaign sanctioned (tolerated) the following material at my.barackobama.com until an uproar on external blogs like this one compelled its deletion.

Tony Wicher’s “My Favorite Antisemite” at the Official Website of Barack Obama 2008 Presidential Campaign attacks the “Zionist Thought Police” and then quotes Desmond Tutu, who suggests that the “powerful Jewish Lobby” will fall like Hitler, Mussolini, Idi Amin, and other dictators.

Screen shots and relevant excerpts appear below.

My Favorite Antisemite (from “The Rootless Cosmopolitan”)

The utterly charming thing about the Zionist Thought Police is their apparent inability to restrain themselves, even from the very excesses that will prove to be their own undoing. Having asked sane and rational people to believe that Jimmy Carter is a Holocaust denier simply for pointing out the obvious about the apartheid regime Israel maintains in the occupied territories, the same crew now want us to believe that Archbishop Desmond Tutu is an anti-Semite…..

He [Tutu] has spoken forcefully on human rights struggles around the world, and his statements about the West Bank are based on what he has seen there. The diminutive Bish is a moral giant of our times, and the fact that he is condemning Israel for maintaining an apartheid system on the West Bank should serve as a wake-up call to liberal Americans who prefer not to think about these things.

Mr. Wicher then quotes Tutu, who compares the “Jewish lobby” to Hitler and Stalin.

“But you know as well as I do that, somehow, the Israeli government is placed on a pedestal [in the U.S.], and to criticize it is to be immediately dubbed anti-Semitic, as if the Palestinians were not Semitic. I am not even anti-white, despite the madness of that group. And how did it come about that Israel was collaborating with the apartheid government on security measures?“

People are scared in this country [the U.S.] to say wrong is wrong because the Jewish lobby is powerful – very powerful. Well, so what? This is God’s world. For goodness sake, this is God’s world! We live in a moral universe. The apartheid government was very powerful, but today it no longer exists. Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Pinochet, Milosovic, and Idi Amin were all powerful, but in the end they bit the dust.

Material at the end of this page suggests that Barack Obama’s moderators were fully aware of this page’s content, and that they do not consider comparison of the “Jewish Lobby” to Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini “offensive” or “disrespectful.”

Somebody removed a comment on my post? I wonder what the comment was? I never read it.

It is also to be noted that this posting was online from October 2007 through at least April 2008 (half a year) when negative publicity from other sites forced the Obama campaign to remove it. In fact, one story is that Wicher and not the Obama campaign removed the material when he realized that it was becoming a liability to his candidate. In contrast, it took less than 36 hours for Obama’s moderators to give the bum’s rush to our openly anti-Obama blog that discussed Obama’s association with Al Sharpton, and the Black Nationalism in “Dreams From My Father.” (We created our account on Thursday June 26, and it was terminated by Friday June 27.)

Thank you for your involvement on My.BarackObama and the countless hours you have dedicated to this campaign. Unfortunately, we were forced to deactivate your account after you abused our blog tool. We regret having had to resort to this action.

Thank you for your understanding.

Emily’s diligence in finding our blog, fabricating an accusation of posting “disrespectful” material, and then fabricating another accusation within five minutes shows conclusively that the Obama campaign’s moderators can find and censor material when they feel like doing so. In contrast, the moderators pretended not to notice Mr. Wicher’s “Zionist Thought Police” and the comparisons of the “Jewish lobby” to Hitler and Mussolini for more than five months. The only possible conclusion is that the Obama campaign sanctions anti-Semitic and other forms of hate speech, including misogyny (directed primarily against Hillary Clinton, with one posting that cites Clinton as an example of why women are unfit to hold public office).

    Are you not the idiot actually posting these rantings to Obama’s web site? I don’t like Obama at all but come on this is stupid and makes us all look like douche bags.

    Don’t you have a job or do you spend all day on the Internet looking for attention for your blog????

    You can reply via email if you want.

    No, I did not post the “Zionist Thought Police” material or anything like it. Are you sure you are a PUMA and not an Obama operative?
