I have a habit of checking the email that is labeled as spam as even the best of spam filters will sometimes grab a legit comment and given the censorship against conservatives these days I like to see if conservative thought is a target.
There was a rather nasty comment that blamed “The Jews” for everything from feminism to 9/11 and claiming that most terrorist attacks are “false flag” operations by, you’ve guessed it, the Jews and that the Holocaust was a myth despite tens of thousands of American soldiers eyewitness accounts of discovering said camps. Who knew Richard Winters and the Men of Easy Company were a bunch of liars?
Like a Howard Zinn history book there was a distinct lack of references to back up these claims but I do have some stats concerning Jews and racism that are a tad more current:
Jews represent less than 1 percent of the population in France, yet in 2014, 51 percent of all racist attacks were carried out against them, according to the French Interior Ministry. A survey from that year of about 1,000 French respondents with unknown religious affiliation and 575 self-identified Muslims . . . found that the Muslim respondents were two or three times more likely to have anti-Jewish sentiments than those from the random French group. Nineteen percent of all respondents felt that Jews had “too much” political power. Among Muslims, the number was 51 percent. As for the idea that Zionism “is an international organization that aims to influence the world and society in favor of the Jews,” 44 percent of Muslims surveyed approved of this statement. . . .
Meanwhile even Palestinian propaganda against the Jews in Israel keeps butting into reality:
Felesteen interviews some of those injured by “occupation snipers” during the riots on the Gaza border.
Somehow, they are all military aged men…Even though we see photos of women and children at the riots, somehow they aren’t being shot.
Sometimes hilariously so
In the wake of the Hamas-instigated “March of the Return” Gaza riots that tore across the Israeli border last week, the center was keen to publicize what it claimed was a publicity coup. In a Facebook post, it told its 500,000 followers that a French doctor had arrived in the Gaza Strip to perform her work and treat ‘wounded Palestinian protesters.’
If you think that you’ve seen Doctor Izzie Stevens somewhere before, then like my wife, you likely are a fan of Grey’s Anatomy.

While the mainstreamed anti-semites of the left vastly outnumber those on the right they have one thing in common, being dependent on fantasy to make their points.
