Today's version of "The Truth Is Out There!"

"Those damned Jews are responsible for all the flu outbreaks!"

"Holland's largest daily, De Telegraf last week printed an interview with Désirée Röver, 61, who proposed the bird flu pandemic, caused by the virus H5N1, was part of an international conspiracy to reduce the world's population.

Röver is quoted as saying the conspiracy can be traced back to a group of descendants of the Khazars, a nation from the Caucasus believed to have converted to Judaism 1,200 years ago.

De Telegraaf quotes her as saying that these descendants are now 'praying to another god; Lucifer, Satan, or however you want to call him' and 'are called Rockefeller, Rothschild, Brezinski and Kissinger.' "
Hat tip: Best of the Web Today.

This goes to prove that like in the case of "progressives, you can always count on the rapaciousness of anti-Semites. And of course at times, some people belong to both groups .


  1. Huh? "Progressives" are anti-semites? I guess that explains why most Jews voted for Obama and most Jews are Democrats.

    Go figure, Bubba.

  2. For the perpetually clueless that occasionally infest this blog:







  3. I read the first link. Sure there are residues of anti-semitism, just as there are apparently many people who cannot accept an African American president.

    As one of the commenters pointed out, this "push poll" prejudices the audience. If you replaced the "Jewish" affiliation with a "Catholic" or Moslem reference, you would get something very similar.

  4. I read the second link from "Blogs for Victory," a GOP propaganda churner. Clearly you guys do not accept the results of the 2008 election and are now mounting a campaign of disinformation as intense as what goes on in an election year. This is good to know. Talk about a "stealth" political campaign, the goal being to defeat health insurance reform not because we don't need changes but just to defeat Obama.

    The article links to a piece by Marty Peretz, the ever vigilant hawk on Israel who discovers anti-semites everywhere among those who aren't as hawkish as he is. Anybody who did not cheer Israel's war in Gaza and who favors a two-state solution is an anti-semite, hawks like him have said.


    Peretz is the publisher of the New Republic. He asserts that the former president of Ireland, Mary Robinson, should not have been selected a Medal of Freedom winner because she is "arguably" an anti-semite because she had the temerity to participate in the 2001 World Conference Against Racism in Durban. Certainly if one attends a conference where even one anti-semite speaks, that automatically makes you an anti-semite.

    Let's extend the analogy to blogs. If you post on a "progressive" blog, that makes you a progressive, and if you post on a conservative blog, that makes you a conservative. By that reasoning, I'm a conservative and Bubba is a progressive.

    And never mind that Robinson was honored by Amnesty International for her human rights work. Never mind that she's President of Oxfam International, and Chairs the Board of Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations (GAVI Alliance). She's clearly an anti-semite, though the article offers not one quote from her proving she's an anti-semite.

    Interesting that you say the label "racist" is used far too freely, but are quick to throw around the label "anti-semite."

    Another double standard? It seems so.
