Branco Cartoons vs. New York Times’ anti-Semitic Cartoon, Smear Campaign
New York Times Runs Blatantly Anti-Semitic Cartoon 2 days before Poway Synagogue Shooting
A couple of days before the shooting, the international edition of the New York Times ran a despicable cartoon. It featured a blind Donald Trump wearing a yarmulke. Trump is leading Benjamin Netanyahu on a leash. Netanyahu is portrayed as a dog. Trump has him on a leash and he’s wearing a Star of David collar. Just to make sure the point isn’t too subtle.
Now, the cartoon could have come right out of any of the rabid anti-Semitic publications from the Nazi Germany days.
Now, the Poway synagogue shooting. Once again, there has been a shooting by a guy who hates Trump. The shooter here hates Trump and hates conservatives and calls both of them, us and Trump, vile names. Yet the Democrats and the media still trying to blame Trump and conservatives for the shooting! Meanwhile, anti-Semitism has totally taken over the Democrat Party, and do you know how they’re disguising it? They’re using opposition to Israel as their platform for full-fledged, universal anti-Semitism, including and led by the New York Times.
Reason behind New York Times Smear Campaign
Professor Dershowitz said the New York Times owes its readers more than an apology. We are entitled to an investigation and explanation. How did the anti-Semitic cartoon get published? Who approved it? What steps are being taken to prevent a recurrence?
And then he tweeted that the anti-Semitic cartoon published by the New York Times is a symptom of a deeper problem on the left. “It is acceptable to many on the left to employ anti-Semitic tropes as long as they are directed against Israel.” Bingo. Anti-Zionism is becoming an acceptable cover for anti-Semitism. Meaning, you can be an anti-Semite, you can be totally opposed to Jews and just couch it as being opposed to Israel and it sends the same message.
And truth is that this kind of smear is not unusual for the New York Times. On Friday they had to apologize for publishing a piece back on Good Friday that claimed Jesus was Palestinian.
The New York Times has people that do not understand the first thing about Christianity. It’s not that they just are biased and are publishing lies. They literally, in this era, in this evolution of the New York Times, they don’t have anybody who actually understands Christianity. Easter worshipers, for example. Easter worshipers.
And the reason is because there is an anti-Christian bias on the left, and once there is an anti-Christian or anti-conservative bias, you don’t have to learn anything about it. It’s just bad. So Fox News is bad, Rush Limbaugh’s bad, talk radio is bad, just because they say it’s bad, just because we’re conservative.
You don’t have to say any more. You don’t have to know any more. You don’t have to explain anything because everybody on your side already agrees, conservatism bad. Christianity bad. Christianity, part of the American founding, the American founding bad. That’s it! That’s the extent of their knowledge. Which, of course, isn’t knowledge.
