JVP Finds Itself At Same Protest (And Side) as Neo-Nazis

In a report about how Jewish communities in Austin and San Antonio were targeted by a neo-Nazi group comes this almost blink-and-you’ll-miss-it part:

The neo-Nazi group traveled down I-35 to San Antonio on Sunday to protest outside an annual fundraiser for Israel held by the Cornerstone Church.

The organizers of a separate protest outside the church said they were shocked to see them.

“I’m horrified,” said Judith Norman, a member of the Jewish Voice For Peace San Antonio chapter. “This is a time that is really fertile for a lot of far right extremist hate organizations. And it’s appalling to see them in the open.”

Speaks volumes about JVP: on the same side as Neo Nazis but also completely in denial that they are on the same side as Neo Nazis.

I suggest to Judith Norman and her fellow leftist Israel-haters: if you find yourselves protesting the same thing as a bunch of neo-Nazis, you might just be on the wrong side of the issue – and history.

Update: These didn’t age well
