ADL Complains About MoveOn.org's Anti-Semitism
Anti-Semitism is getting ever more popular on the Left, as the Anti-Defamation League is starting to notice.
MoveOn.org, a central pillar of the sinister Shadow Party, was instrumental in advancing hard-left stooge Ned Lamont at the expense of the relatively responsible Joe Lieberman. Possibly unaware that George Soros is himself Jewish by birth, his creepy MoveOn minions have been trashing Lieberman for being a Jew. Anti-Lieberman posts on a MoveOn.org board have included such endearments as "Zionazis," "Jew Lieberman," and "media owning Jewish pigs." One moonbat wondered, "Why are the Jews so Jew-y?"
MoveOn.org responded to complaints, incredibly yet unsurprisingly, by dismissing the issue as a conservative plot.
The ADL's Abraham Foxman believes that MoveOn.org "should assume some responsibility" for "this hateful content," but I think the nutroots sociopaths who are consolidating their control of the Democratic Party should be encouraged to express their true feelings, so that Jews know just what they're voting for when they vote for Dems.

George Soros is an atheist deluxe.

Wow, the claim of a vast right wing conspiracy to make MoveOn.org look bad was certainly trotted out quickly! They must keep it close by in case of emergency. Must...deflect...blame!

As an Orthodox Jew, I can tell you that the Orthodox Jews know not to vote for the Democratic Party. They've known this since the start of the initifada. It's the Jews who don't follow their own religion and are ashamed of it who will vote Democrat because it makes them feel more accepted among the elite.
It always amazes me to hear people speak of their secular Jewish friend who's against Israel as, "he thinks what Israel is doing to the Arabs is terrible, and HE'S JEWISH!" The Jewish opinion is only coveted when it's against Israel and most likely comes from a secular Jew who knows NOTHING of his own history. When the opposing opinion is expressed by an Orthodox Jew, its irrelevant because that person is blinded by faith and couldn't possibly be rational.

I must strenuously object to the labeling of Ned Lamont as a Stooge. Moe Howard and the boys were clearly more intelligent, more compassionate, and (obviously) far more patriotic than that ranting twerp. Of course so is the average cockroach. Also, Lamont isn't the least bit funny.

MoveOn lied to Abraham Foxman, who is of course credulous enough to believe the thinnest excuses. Proof is on file that MoveOn saw but tolerated the anti-Semitic (and racist) materials while deleting criticism of the material. Furthermore, some of it is still online such as
http://www.actionforum.com/forum/scores.html?&comment_id=310537 “Our parents abused some of us, some were drunks, some were divorced and some had Jewish parents. We don’t have to hang on to our past.”
This was online as of today, 14 September, but Eli Pariser's press release of 2 September said that the anti-Semitic slurs had been deleted.
