Gee whiz everyone is trying to get into the act. People keep popping out of the woodwork wanting to be spokesmen for the Jews just so they can attack Glenn Beck with false claims of Antisemitism. Most of the attacks come from the hypocritical Media Matters who is funded by the “spooky dude,” George Soros.
Sometimes the Beck haters enlist Jewish groups, such as the ADL or the Jewish Funds for Justice to spread the Antisemitic myths obviously hoping that because they have Jewish names the charges will stick, but make no mistake about it, neither the ADL or the Jewish Funds for Justice give a “rats arse” for their Jewishness; their real priority is advancing their progressive agenda.
But yesterday, the Beck haters went way beyond the pale, they enlisted Cenk Uygur to accuse Glenn Beck of Antisemitism.
First of all, Cenk builds his case by cherry-picking names. Who cares if eight of those nine people Cenk cherry-picked were Jewish. Anybody can take a list and pick out the Jews. Cenk should look at some of the other names that Glenn Beck has devoted entire shows “attacking”: Bill Ayers, Woodrow Wilson, Van Jones, Mark Lloyd, Rev. Wright, Andrew Jackson, Teddy Roosevelt, John Holdren, and Jim Wallis just to name a few. Not one of the aforementioned names will ever be included in an Adam Sandler Hanukkah Song (because of their lack of being Jewish).
Beyond his cherry-picking the choice of Cenk Uygur to be the progressives’ latest “protector of the Jews” is disturbingly interesting. Uygur says he is a friend of the Jews but as a friend he is certainly insensitive to the plight of the Jewish people. Cenk has used the a modern version of the blood libel” against the IDF, invokes a moral equivalency between terrorist acts and Israel’s targeted attacks on Hamas leadership and in one Huffington Post article wrote that he can’t stand Judaism (to be fair he can’t stand Islam either).
So, let me make it clear. The original Zionist idea of retaking the holy land and making iist a Jewish state was a terrible and disastrous idea. It was spurred on by their absurd religious beliefs and it has only served to make the Jewish people, let alone everyone else, far less safe. You wonder why I can’t stand Judaism. ( in the same article he talks about not liking Islam either).
Cenk Uygur runs a website called Young Turks which is loaded with Antisemitic comments. For example, this one by a fellow who calls himself Young Tiger, compares Israel (or as he calls them The Jews), to the Nazis:
