Richard Silverstein’s Racist Attack On An African-American Zionist

I’ve documented the Doucheblogger’s douchery for quite a while, so I guess nothing from him is that surprising anymore.

They finally did it: found a Negro Zionist: Uncle Tom is dancin’ for joy!

Remember: this is the guy who once complained about a lack of online civility to the New York Times:

“I’ve been assaulted and harassed online for four years. Most of it I can take in stride. But you just never get used to that level of hatred.”

Not only did he apparently get used to it, he raised the level.

But it goes to show you, his hatred for Israel and her supporters is pathological.

Update: This is not the first time Silverstein has used this racist phrase. He’s also used it to describe Arab-Israeli Khaled Abu Toameh.

@MatthewKalman And let’s not forget yr good friend, Palestinian ‘Uncle Tom’ Abu Toameh. JPost’s favorite Arab.

And here’s Silverstein’s response to a reader who objected to his use of the phrase.

Update: Oh the irony!

Ethiopian-Israeli Miss Israel, & former refugee, says she “doesn’t feel racism.” I’m shocked!

Update (by Brian): We have located the full Facebook post and it is even worse. He throws into the mix hatred of Christians (for having the temerity to support Zionism) and the old favorite charge that Jews can’t hate Jews (Silverstein proves this false) and that non Jews have no right to criticize Jews.

What is most disgusting about this is that the
author is not Jewish, but a Christian Zionist who
wants to tell me that a fellow Jew, Judith Butler,
is a “notorious anti-Semite.” Makes me want to

I do so love it when he even uses “wretch” instead of “retch.” Priceless.
