Hat tip to Pajamas Media
Pajamas Media has the disturbing report below as more expressions of anti-Semitism crop up in the Occupy protests in new York and Los Angeles. The below link contains both photos and videos.
Like the writer of the PJ article, I am not attributing anti-Semitism to all of the people who show up to protest. It is disturbing, nonetheless. Added to the overall poor behavior, the arrests and the deteriorating hygienic conditions on display, this can only further serve to discredit the cause.
If only the mainstream media would point it all out to the public. Instead, MSNBC openly supports and glorifies the crowds while Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats praise them. President Obama says that he empathizes with them. On the other hand, we have not seen and heard these kinds of expressions from the Tea Party-no matter how much the left refers to them as "racist extremists".
The responsible thing to do would be for the other protesters to openly challenge these Jew-haters and tell them to leave, if for no other reason than to disassociate themselves from this hate. What we are witnessing here is the re-opening of all the old canards about Jewish people-that they are all rich, money-grubbing financiers making their fortunes on the backs of the common man. These are the things that were said in early 20th century Europe. And we know where it all led. Add that to the blaming of Jews for the Middle East situation, and you have a volatile mixture, indeed.
