Default More anti-Semitism at Occupy Wall Street protests

This is what it means to be young, liberal, tolerant, and 'progressive'.

The PJ Tatler More Anti-Semitism at Occupy Los Angeles




'Occupy Wall Street has an anti-Semitism problem'
While the Lefties searched in vain for bigotry and prejudice in the Tea Party so were forced to invent it, ie, lie about its existence, they seem blissfully unaware --or maybe agree with-- the blatant prejudice of the Illegally Occupying White Useful Idiots Mob, otherwise known as Occupy Wall Street (OWS).

As Abe Greenwald of Commentary Contentions bluntly states:
A quick sampling of the anti-Semitism on display among the Occupy Wall Street set yields the flamboyant and aggressive protester who yells,"You're a bum, Jew" at his yarmulke-wearing interlocutor; the conspiracy theorist who laments that "Jewish money controls American politics," and warns the Russians not to let the Jews take over Russia too; and the self-described Nazi with the swastika tattoo who regrets that America has been handed over to "other people." Ah, people power.

The Jew-hatred among protesters and sympathizers is diverse and unapologetic. It is, in fact, atmospheric. Tune in randomly to live television coverage of the spectacle and you'll see--as I did--placards scapegoating Israel, Zionism, or "Hitler's bankers." Check out the continuous flurry of protest-supporting tweets and blog posts, and you'll get more of the same.

I was gonna say that too. What is anti-Semitic about that sign?

It's no different than a Christian owning a strip club and folks telling them to repent.

A lot of these banks are run by those of the Jewish faith, and in the eyes of their faith they are committing sins. So she's telling them to atone on Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of atonement.

I don't see the problem.

Yeah, it's almost as off base as suggesting that Hollywood is overwhelmingly Jewish. Heavens no, don't you dare make any reference to the chosen ones. Doing so is, by apparent definition, as anti-Jewish as is criticizing any of Israel's policies. Can't have that!

Hmm.. so this is OK..
but a website called Obama as Chimp (or SOMETHING like that) comes out, hell breaks loose..
.........despite that there was one when Bush was in office.

There's not a lot of these anti jew signs at OWS, but tell that to one of them because EVERYONE at Tea Party rallies are all racists.

Why should it matter if they are Jewish? Why is it worth mentioning?

The OP is trying to create a story where there is none. I don't see anything anti semitic about this.
