Manufactured Outrage And Max Blumenthal’s Hidden Horror
Leading the way in that piece are reams and reams of vile tweets by Max Blumenthal. These will be ignored by the main stream media. He didn’t just write one tweet, he hammered again and again and again. His tweets find a ready audience and are disseminated wildly by hoards of evil followers who range from Holocaust denying Nazis to Islamic supremacists who all find a happy home under Max’s welcoming wing.
Hillary’s campaign have issued a warm remembrance statement for Elie Weisel, completely at odds with Max’s tweets of course.
But lets not forget that Max’s father, Sidney Blumenthal was and remains a close confidant and advisor to Hillary Clinton. Quoting from the Ha’aretz piece that tries desperately to downplay the connection:
But the emails supplied potent ammunition by revealing that Blumenthal, a proud father, frequently sent his son’s work to the Secretary of State – not always, but frequently about Israel. Clinton responds approvingly at various junctures, calling Max’s work “interesting reading” or “a very smart piece – as usual” or “Pls congratulate Max for another impressive piece. He’s so good.”
Writing here on Israellycool, Mirabelle suggested that Hillary Clinton would need to do a few things to confirm that she really is good for Israel:
First, she has to repudiate and distance herself from her advisor Sid Blumenthal and his spawn, the despicable antisemitic Jew Max Blumethal. No one can take seriously her claim that she wants to “elevate the fight against anti-Semitism” when she calls one of the most notorious antisemites on the planet “a mitzvah.”
Shmuley Boteach (who was with Elie Wiesel this past Shabbat) went so far as to take out a full page advert in the New York Times backed by the email Clinton was forced to divulge from her secret server.
Meanwhile, over the weekend, a social media photoshop person in Trump’s campaign managed to put together a meme that just happened to include the geometric shape of a 6 pointed star. In red. I saw it, no doubt millions saw it but of course those looking to bash (like Ha’aretz) immediately saw a big JEWISH STAR OF DAVID and managed to write a huge article (see tall image on the right).
Trump’s team, obviously, replaced the meme once Internet hell had broken loose, but for the life of me, I don’t see every single six pointed star as a Jewish symbol. There are an awful lot of Sheriff badges in the US: I don’t think those stars are Jewish.
Trying (as this article does) to make out that Trump himself is an antisemite is beyond ridiculous. His family has so many obvious connections to Judaism and his grandchildren are even Jewish owing to his daughter’s orthodox conversion. Many of his top advisors (and especially his ones on the Middle East) are Jewish. So in the end this is just a manufactured outrage. The two statements he released on Friday about the horrific murders of Hallel Yaffa Ariel and then a few hours later for Rabbi Miki Mark, leave little doubt where he stands on Israel and Jews.
And yes, obviously, there will be Jew haters who will vote for and support Trump. Which is because there are Jew haters everywhere and (as is obvious from the odious depths of Sanders campaign) many people who hate Jews and Israel will be voting for Hillary too. And Max Blumenthal’s evil, anti-Jewish poison will be a primary contributor to their hatred.
I can pretty much guarantee Max Blumenthal’s obvious and visceral hatred for Elie Wiesel (a Jew, remember, not specifically an Israeli) will not get a single mention anywhere in Ha’aretz or the New York Times. Nobody will be aggressively asking Hillary Clinton at her next press conference if she will disavow Max Blumenthal. But one (very marginal) graphic by a Trump staffer warrants a complete hit piece.
