Anti-Zionist-Not Antisemite of the Day: Gretchen Crawford (Maine)
Meet Gretchen Crawford.
A former nurse (more on that later), Gretchen now seems to be a fulltime hater of Israel.
In some cases, she tries to separate Judaism from Israel:
But alas, she cannot keep up the pretense, and it is clear her real illness is hatred of the Jewish people.
Of course, Gretchen will deny she is antisemitic, claiming the accusation is something to “stifle legitimate criticism of Israel”
But in the very posts she denies antisemitism, she perpetuates it!
And she attacks the IHRA definition of antisemitism, while contravening even the more “lenient” definitions floating around:
Remember how I mentioned she is a former nurse? Well, she blames the “former” part on guess who:
She was actually fired from a job as as a hospice case manager. I would hate to think what might happen if she still had that job…and a Jewish patient.
I would also hate the idea of her anywhere near the local synagogue.
Gretchen, thanks for playing anti-Zionist-Not-Antisemite. Unfortunately you lose!
