Demotivational Poster: Left-Wing Anti-Semitism

"Tell them [the Jews] to get the hell out of Palestine....[The Jews] can go home [to] Poland [or] Germany." - Helen Thomas

Why such a focus on the Holocaust then? “The Jewish domination of the media....There’s a major lobby in the United States. They are hard workers. They stay on top of every comment, the most powerful lobby in Washington. Israel has f***ed up United States foreign policy for years.” - Oliver Stone

If a right-wing journalist suggested that Mexican immigrants should get the hell out of America and go home to Mexico, there would be outrage from the left; yet when left-wing journalist Helen Thomas suggested that Jews “get the hell out of Palestine,” the outrage came primarily from the right, while the left tried their best to defend her.

If someone claimed that Jews controlled the mainstream media, that person would be assumed to be a right-wing fringe nut, perhaps even a Neo-Nazi skinhead; yet it was left-wing propagandist director Oliver Stone who claimed that “the Jewish domination of the media” was responsible for not only focusing United States foreign policy on Israel (and thus f***ing it up!), but also preventing Hitler from being taken “in context.”

Anti-Semitism has long been associated with the right, yet the two most anti-Semitic comments were made by those in the left wing. No surprise, considering how the left has been against the state of Israel (even though Jews tend to lean left, and Israel is primarily liberal).
