Richard Silverstein Effectively Calls Himself A Racist

One of the things about dealing with anti-Israel blogger Richard Silverstein’s narishkeit is there just aren’t enough hours in the day for it.

That is why it is great when others get on board to help ease the load. One such person is Mike of The Mike Report blog, who has noticed another example of Silverstein’s idiocy.

Last month  Silverstein got into a Twitter shouting match with  with a Gazan who complained that Hamas should do something about their raw sewage problem (Silverstein was defending Hamas).   During the ensuing Twitter melee someone identified the melanin challenged Silverstein as ”white”. Silverstein blew a gasket.


Silverstein insisted that calling a Jew “white” is “insulting, demeaning and racist”… and then a few days later  in a classic Silverstein confused and befuddled flippety flop he went and called a whole bunch of Jews “white”.  In an article he posted on October 30th he lamented  “I too feel a degree of alienation from American Jewish identity as filtered through its rich, white male leadership.” What? White male Jewish leaders!? But I thought (or he thought) calling a Jew “white” is insulting, demeaning and racist”.   I guess it takes an “insulting, demeaning racist” to know one.
