Big Godwin

I don’t think Godwin’s Law applies if it’s an actual Nazi image.  And Breitbart’s Big Journalism site didn’t just use it once, it used it three times.

Even if we give them the benefit of the doubt and stipulate that they just found this image somewhere with the captions and the Star of David already edited out, did not a single person over there notice that Mr. “Media Bias” looks an awful lot like a Nazi-era anti-semitic stereotype?  Surely they couldn’t have thought it was a recent, original work, not with Life and The Sun so prominently visible.

Funny how pundits on the right can detect the tiniest trace amounts of anti-semitism when it’s defined as “not mindlessly supporting every crazy thing Israel does,” yet are blissfully oblivious when the real thing literally stares them in the face.
