Leftists Were For Hateful and Violent Rhetoric Before They Were Against it

In 2006 I discovered the “action forums” of MoveOn.org, where the then burgeoning “netroots” posted messages like this:

Bush is no Hitler. Hitler was a socialist and believed in something beside money. He did not dodge real military service and he believed at least in Germany, which was a real nation and not a corporation like the US. Moreover, Hitler did not use depleted uranium and phosphorous to burn people alive. He did not condone the torture of prisoners ‘for fun’ or ‘to relieve stress.’

and this:

school curricula are dominated by the Talmud, especially a specific Talmudic text called Shulhan Aruch.
In this text, Jews are commanded to slaughter non-Jews who are viewed more or less as animals or at least lesser human beings.

So routine were anti-Semitism and pro-Nazi sentiments that MoveOn was forced to close their forums to the public and eventually shut them down all together.

They did this without much fanfare or condemnation for the White Nationalists who infested their forums and openly supported MoveOn.org’s anti-Republican and anti-Jewish agenda. MoveOn.org remains a a powerful force in Democratic politics despite being exposed as anti-Catholic, anti-Evangelical, anti-Jewish and anti-American. Here’s another sample of hateful rhetoric found in the “action forums” of MoveOn.org:

We can all see how AIPAC/Israel has taken control of America. Not to get nasty but jews have a long history of subverting governments for their own enrichment and glory to the detriment of whole societies. Many more than “6 million” have died by semetic aggression, 100′s of millions even, remember the conqueror writes history. Even the roman empire feared jewish power. Over and over again, whites, particularly semites have distorted truth through their supremacist, zenophobic minds. Ariel Sharon Oct of 2001 per Kol Israel, “… Don’t worry about america, we control america and the americans know it.” There is a mental pathology gripping my tribe, as the native americans say, “white man have forked tongue”, we must become enlightened, or we will be destroyed.

And here’s another gem:

The Jews have 9,000 prisoners the Arabs have 3.
It’s the Jews that are trying to push the Arabs into the sea by occupying and annexing their land, bulldozing refugee camps and orchards.
The Jews are killing the Arabs on a ratio of 10 to 1.

The Palestinians live in a prison, no way in or out without passing through an abusive Jewish guard gate.
The Jews demand that the Pals. disarm prior to any negotiating of what if anything they’ll get back. That is called begging not negotiating.
Nearly 3/4 of the entire Jewish population was exterminated. If you can’t tell us why, We are stuck with logic and commonsense.
I’m saying Jews instead of Israelis because I read the Israeli newspapers, the “Israeli Lobby” papers and have seen the House vote 410-8 in support Israel while the UN typically votes 191-4 against Israel. Also the billions in aid and military equipment are conspicuous. The world court unanimously voted against Israel.
By blaming Hitler you don’t have to face the truth.
I will stop condemning Jews when they become acclimated with all people.
Stop professing to know and start reading.

When that last passage was observed by one of the earliest critics of MoveOn.org it was “agreed with” by 9 out of 12 MoveOn readers who bothered to rank it. 75% of MoveOn.org activists who had a strong enough opinion to express it in public about the above attack on Jews supported it.

In 2010 a report was released that showed hate crimes against Jews had increased in America. For the last decade, hate crimes against Jews have increased every year. Yet I have never heard anyone attack the Left for using violent anti-Jewish rhetoric aimed at forming alliances with neo-Nazis and jihadists.

There also wasn’t much of a to-do from the Left when MoveOn.org was exposed as working on behalf of the Marxist terror group FARC.
