Anti-Semitism, the Obama Administration, & the American Left

We Have to Start Over
Patricia McCarthy

What accounts for the appalling acceptability of overt anti-Semitism these days? While fashionable on university campuses for years, the norm in France for as long as we can remember, and de rigueur among Muslims throughout the Middle East, how have we come to a place here in the United States where protestors embraced by the American Left and our media can openly scream anti-Jewish epithets and carry signs with hateful slogans indicting the Jews of the world for all manner of crimes against humanity?

Keep in mind that the President, the Vice President, Nancy Pelosi (“bless them”) and the mainstream media have all embraced the cause and behavior of the Occupy Wall Street protestors and their copycats around the country. The Tea Party, these same supporters railed, were “racist” (they are not), “violent” (they are not), and profane, which they most certainly are not. But it appears that our President, Vice President, Speaker of the House and our mainstream media have no problem with the distinct anti-Semitic character of these protests and might even share their sentiments.

We all know well by now that President Obama has no love or respect for Israel. You can take Obama out of Jeremiah Wright’s church but apparently cannot take Jeremiah Wright’s church out of Obama. He has done his best to isolate Israel and thus has emboldened her enemies. Is it our President’s not-so-subtle antipathy for Israel that has loosened the lid of a simmering anti-Semitism among his base and allowed it to ooze into the culture like a plague?

  1. Good post, Kris. I too have been wondering how the media justifies the double standard in their coverage of the Tea Party vs. OWS.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Courtney, and welcome.
    There’s no question that we are not playing on a level playing field. Those who hate their Creator and those who embrace His value system, confront us on many, many fronts. Whether that be in politics or simply daily life. We are certainly heading towards some sort of a climax in the very near future, of that I have no doubt.

    Luk 21:28-31 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
    And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
    When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.
    So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.
