Thus Speaks The Tolerant Left
There will be seven Democratic Presidential candidates at a Leadership Forum today sponsored by YearlyKos. I wonder how many of them are aware of the vile, anti-Israeli, anti-Jewish invective that regularly appears on the organizer's personal website?
Powerful Political Blog Attracts Israel Hate Posts - Robert Goldberg (Washington Times) Eyal Rosenberg resigned as a diarist for the powerful political blog DailyKos on May 9 after "all the Israel Hate spewing out of one too many diaries around here." There are thousands of posts blaming Israel for all the terror and conflict in the Middle East.
As he wrote in his last post: "Reading these past months on dkos has led me to believe that people here, under the 'progressive' banner, support views that end up in one place: Me dead.
" Recently, a DailyKos diarist suggested "gassing Joe Lieberman like a dog."
Rosenberg notes that the anti-Semitic attacks are not "isolated." In his brief time as a diarist (several months), he counted 5,000 Israel or Jewish references in the DailyKos. That's about 23 posts on Jews or Israel a day, most negative.
This past spring, one of the site's diarists posted an image that morps the face of Israel's minister of strategic affairs, Avigdor Lieberman, with that of Adolf Hitler's shown holding a skull painted with a Star of David, under the caption "Zionism was and remains a racist ideology.".
