The Ziosphere* is a buzz with a new meme: "The Madoff scandal is a gift for antisemites."
Bradley Burston, the White Knight of Myopia, sounds the gong:
The anti-Semite's new Santa is Bernard Madoff. The answer to every Jew-hater's wish list. The Aryan Nation at its most delusional couldn't have come up with anything to rival this. (Haaretz)It's bizzare. Madoff destroyed 50 billion dollars, a lot of which is going to be missing from the budget of Zionist propaganda outfits next year. For comparison, this is more than half of the British bank bailout package announced earlier this year. It's huge. Yet the only aspect that really matters to Burston is what the antisemites at Aryan nation think? That is his only concern?
And really, is the worst Aryan Nation can imagine as far as Jewish criminality goes is cleaning a lot of very deep pockets? Or is it the worst that Burston can imagine? Because I for once can not only imagine, but actually link to much worse crimes committed by Jews recently.
Might this myopic outlook have something to do with the fact that Zionism itself is the antisemite's gift that keeps on giving? Allow me to quote a former British Jewish minister about another "gift to the antisemites:"
But when the Jew has a national home, surely it follows that the impetus to deprive us of the rights of British citizenship must be enormously increased. Palestine will become the world's Ghetto. Why should the Russian give the Jew equal rights? His national home is Palestine. Why does Lord Rothschild attach so much importance to the difference between British and foreign Jews? All Jews will be foreign Jews, inhabitants of the great country of Palestine. (memorandum...)On the basis of this Edwin Montague accused the government of Britain of antisemitism for issuing the Balfour declaration. That gift from antisemites and to antisemites keeps giving, but don't expect Burston to notice.
Brad Greenberg, for example, is really concerned:
Remember the spike in anti-Semitism after the financial meltdown? This will be similar, but with the potential to be a lot more damaging because Madoff is actually being charged criminally....(The Jewish Journal)
See, antisemitism is a lot like the stock market itself. There are spikes, followed by long trends upward or downward, and occasionally even a "head and shoulders" formation. And if you're really bored, following the trends in antisemitism can be a fun gentlemanly pursuit. Heck, we might decide to make a market here in antisemitism futures to cover our costs! Let's just hope this latest "spike" is not a dead cat bounce!
If you go to Google’s blog search page and enter the words “Madoff” and “Jew,” similar trash comes up in the results. And because antisemitism is not really about Jews, but about a vile representation of Jews, the irony that many Jewish charities and non-profit institutions have been badly damaged by the collapse of Madoff’s empire will pass unnoticed. (Z-Word)Shocking! Who would have thought that if you searched for trash on the web you would actually find it? Why Ben? I don't want to know what you found when you entered "Asian" and "sex" on the google search page. At least, Ben might want to read Jews Sans Frontiers more often, because we certainly did not miss the fact that Madoff's victims included Jewish "non-profit" institutions. Apologies if this messes up that whole irony thing.
Deborah Lipstadt thinks Madoff is a sociopath and "an antisemite's dream." Unlike Ariel Sharon, for example, who is apparently just a comatose teddy bear as far as she's concerned. Lipstadt never uttered a word of censure about Sharon, or any of the other sociopaths that governed Israel since before independence. Nor would she admit that Sharon is "an antisemite's dream." Sharon only gets mentioned on her blog in the context of defending him. But then, how can you compare butchering Palestinians to defrauding a Jewish charity?
Should Madoff be kidnapped by Israel and tried for "crimes against the Jewish people". Vote in the comment section!
Is there really a "spike in antisemitism" because of the fabled Jews=bankers imagery? While the current financial crisis has given some fodder to the nutcases, the evidence so far is that it had the opposite effect on most people, especially in the U.S. epicenter. Thanks to the crisis, the U.S. voted in office its first black president (despite, not because of his kissass attitude towards Israel and its lobby). The nutcases of white power did seize on Madoff. But they are throwing tantrums because they are loosing, not because they are making any inroads.
But facts don't matter in the Ziosphere. Zionists need antisemites and are more than happy to manufacture them, especially when it helps detract attention from their own doings.
And this is the problem. Who needs Madoff? The best way to convince a naive person that antisemitism can't be all wrong is to give them a tour of Zionist blogs. A daily dose of Deborah Lipstadt and Z-word would make even Gandi a raving antisemite.
