Mark Levin’s McCarthyist JournoList membership list rapidly turns anti-Semitic
Update: Mark Levin removes anti-Semitic comments, dares his readers to say I’m into goats.
Conservative pundit and talk radio screamer Mark Levin put his researchers to work assembling posted a list assembled by a Free Republic user of members of JournoList, the nefarious cabal that ensured that John McCain was not elected President of the United States of America. He left me off. I feel so unimportant. I had really hoped to be included in this wave of digital McCarthyism that the screaming right-wing is hoping to foment. Then again, I only became a member this winter long after the election was done and over.
But what’s more interesting than the list is the comments. While members of JournoList are being slammed for intemperate remarks in an off-the-record listserve, apparently it’s OK with Levin if his readers express virulent anti-Semitism on his Facebook page. The readers must have a pretty bad case of cognitive dissonance to get into this line of thinking (Levin’s surname is ‘Levin’ after all), but they just can’t help from noting the interesting coincidence that many of the members of JournoList happen to be Jewish.
Below are all screengrabs taken around 6:30 pm from Levin’s Facebook page.
There’s the snide suggestion that without Jews, there would be no liberals:
Then there’s the version that says American Jews don’t truly support Israel:
Then there’s the “why are you a self-loathing Jew” version:
If you’re mad about JournoList just ask yourself: are these the people you’d like to pal around with? At the very least, I hope Levin will do the decent thing and delete these comments from his Facebook page. I’ll keep watch.
