No Need to Peel Away Any Layers To See The Onion’s Hatred of Israel

I have noted on a number of occasions the Onion’s decline from humorous satire site to unfunny, anti-Israel propaganda site. And the latest example of this does not even pretend to be an attempt at humor.

That’s it. Just the photo and unfunny caption, reminiscent of something out of Electronic Intifada. No attempted clever word play or satire.

Meanwhile, if you do a search on their site for “Gaza”, the most recent results are:

Not one “story” relating to the rioters attempts to break down the border fence and flood Israel with murderous intent, or their sending over of incendiary kites (some with swastikas), burning down thousands of acres of land.

The Onion is now not The Onion.
