Which Left-Winger Made the Following Anti-Semitic Remarks: James von Brunn or Richard M. Nixon?
So I see wingnuts are running around claiming that James von Brunn’s anti-Semitism is proof that he’s a lefty (more examples here and here.) Leaving aside the absurdity of reducing an individual’s overall political orientation to a single feature (Hitler favored low taxes — just like Republicans!), anti-Semitism has been a staple of the far-right in the United States for decades, from Henry Ford to Charles Lindbergh to Pat Buchanan. And yes, we saw it during the Great Teabagging.
Still, if Pantload wants to play this stupid game, why not have some fun with it at the right’s expense?
The Jews are born spies.
All of the Jewish families are close, but there’s this strange malignancy now that seems to creep among them…the radicalism.

There’s a Jewish cabal, you know, running through the Federal Reserve.

The Jews are irreligious, atheistic, immoral bunch of bastards.
Today, Jews control all important sources of information: networks, newspapers, magazines, book-publishing, etc.
The government is full of Jews…most Jews are disloyal.

Newsweek, the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times are totally dominated by the Jews.
Take your best guesses. I’ll post the answers in comments.
