Is Anti-Semitism More Acceptable Than Criticizing Israel?

by Sean Fenley / November 24th, 2010

Glenn Beck would appear to be the template for the anti-Semitic Zionist. After Beck odiously displayed a puppet show, with Hungarian Holocaust survivor George Soros as the stringer-puller-in-chief. Soros is, of course, ostensibly directing and manipulating the country and politicians on both sides of the “political divide” — presumably toward an end of his creation. Beck’s defense for all of this, is that he is probably a stronger supporter of the state of Israel than his bogeyman and antihero.

Soros is unequivocally far from a humanitarian, and — judging from his behavior in the economic and political arena — not whatsoever a nice guy. He’s known as the man who took down the Bank of England, he was convicted of insider trading in France, he’s enriched himself off of the rapacious practice of speculating on national currencies, and he even once told former Mayalasian leader Dr. Mahathir Mohamad that he was a menace to his own country, because he implemented taboo, at the time; capital controls — a practice that has now been accepted, by even many on the right. But controlling the country via the organizations and non-profits that he supports and donates to? No, that is just absurd.

Beck is “harmless” insofar as he makes scurrilous attacks on anyone left of Cleon Skousen, and so long as he does not take his racial hatred — and hatred of most minority groups — too far outside the lines. It matters not, though apparently, that he’s on a purported news channel and thousands, if not millions, would seem to hang on his every word. And not to mention, of course, that they would seem to be at his predilection to rally in support of neofascism. The FDA is currently banning alcoholic energy drinks in the fifty states in this country, but Glenn Beck’s hokum doesn’t come with any kind of a black box or a warning?

If Glenn Beck came out tomorrow and said he would no longer support the apartheid state of Israel, that would be it. Forget Beck even engaging in such a statement that is that black and white — or “too far” to one side. If he said the United States needs to be an independent broker in the peace process; instead of the lawyer for Israel, it would be curtains for Beck! He’d collect his severance package, and; God-willing, be on to a different venue. Beck can seemingly; however, continue to propagate the most vicious, unsubstantiated and scurrilous kind of attacks upon George Soros, and apparently; continues to clock in — just the same. Who will be the next controllers of America, according to Glenn Beck’s crack investigative “journalism”? There’s an army of groups and people that can be scapegoated, just as Beck has shamefully promoted toward one wealthy Jew.

Fox News, obviously continues in its slide toward oblivion, but make no mistake; however — no matter how far the rhetoric falls down into the gutter — we can continue to be assured that the AIPAC/Likudnik position on Israel will remain unassailed. To question that particular orthodoxy is a far worse faux pas to make, than to project the kind of stuff of Father Coughlin and virulent hate speech on to national television. We already knew that most of these fundamentalist Christian so-called Zionists care nothing for the Jewish people, and now we can unequivocally say that we know the same about the loathsome Murdoch “news” channel. According to their ideology/mythos, of course, the Jews will be engulfed in the Rapture, or converted to worship their God.

Sean Fenley is an independent progressive who would like to see the end of the dictatorial duopoly of the so-called two party adversarial system. He would also like to see some sanity brought to the creation and implementation of current and future U.S. military, economic, foreign and domestic policies. Read other articles by Sean.
