Alice Walker Makes Wiesenthal Center’s Top 10 Anti-Semitic Slurs

alice-walker-israel-266x350

Alice Walker, who believes that the planet is overrun by reptilian space aliens, (some of whom may be Jews), really doesn’t like Jews. Or her own daughter. But she does like Hamas.

Iran still takes the top spot and Alice Walker has to settle for sharing the 9th spot with Max Blumenthal; Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal’s crazy racist son.

Once a major writer, these days Alice Walker can’t even score the top spot in anti-semitism.

The Pulitzer prize-winning novelist Alice Walker was co-listed as ninth for her latest book, Pin in the Cushion, which the Center described as “a diatribe against the Jewish state. Walker depicts Hamas-ruled Gaza as a benign place,” and compares Israelis to the Nazis.

As always, it’s not entirely clear whether Alice Walker hates Jews because she hates her ex-husband or whether her bigotry is a bit more normal.

Walker, the ADL statement went on, “suggests that Israeli settlements are motivated by the concept that ‘possession is nine-tenths of the law,’ which she claims is a lesson she ‘learned from my Jewish lawyer former husband.’”

A meeting she describes with an elderly Palestinian woman in the territories is telling about the impetus behind Walker’s hostile attitude towards Jews and Israelis. The woman, upon accepting a gift from Walker, says “May God protect you from the Jews” to which Walker responds, “It’s too late, I already married one.”

That quote comes from Walker’s Cushion in the Road and it’s as blatant as bigotry gets. It also shows how Alice Walker conflates her hatred for her ex with hatred for the Jewish people as a whole.

    “In 1965, Walker met Melvyn Rosenman Leventhal, a Jewish civil rights lawyer. They were married on March 17, 1967 in New York City. Later that year the couple relocated to Jackson, Mississippi, becoming “the first legally married inter-racial couple in Mississippi”. They were harassed and threatened by whites, including the Ku Klux Klan. The couple had a daughter Rebecca in 1969. Walker and her husband divorced in 1976″

    So this Jewish guy goes the full 100 yards with Alice. He marries to her. He starts raising kids. He places himself in a hostile environment, where people end up dead (Mississippi Burning: James Earl Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael “Mickey” Schwerner in 1964).

    You could say in some ways a platoon on patrol overseas has more back up and is safer.

    Then she divorces him.

      Of course she divorced him. After all he did for her she wanted him to be happy.

      • A Z

        She has gone through 2 other people since then that is known. I don’t think she is any happier having divorced him. I think she is less happy but cannot admit it.

        IMO she divorced him so she could rail about how unfair life is. I really believe it. If she is in an interracial marriage and the household income is very good, it is much harder to go race pimping.

    The real question is why would a radical woman marry in the first place? Didn’t she cross the uncrossable line that says the institution of marriage is a white male construct designed to enslave women? Was she ever called out on being a traitor to one of the left’s most sacred principles?

  • herb benty

    She’s just repeating the nonsense that was preached to her in college by all those Marxist, tenured twits. There is another war going on, and it is for our minds. The left champion Stalin, Mao, etc., the Right holds up an apple pie

    Is this really supposed to be a journalistic article? I have nothing against Judaism as a religion, but a lot against Israel as a state. I suppose in your messed up opinion that makes me an anti semite too? Lunatics, all of you.

    • KyraNelson

      That’s mighty white of you, not having anything against Judaism as a religion. Piss off.

    • Crassus

      Well, if it quacks like a duck…………………

    • Berceuse

      What size jackboots do you wear, Kit? Just curious.

    • BradD99

      Kit, the point of this article and others like it is, there are plenty of valid critics of Israel who are honest ,and then there are deranged psychopaths who spew dishonest rabid hate towards every single aspect of Israel, including its very existence.

    Alice Walker, the Cynthia McKinney of dime-store paperback writing, may have stopped churning out her third-rate fiction and anti-white hate essays a long time ago, but she is still a very hot performer on college and university campuses.

    She rakes in a lot of cash scolding self-loathing white feminists in women’s studies departments. Her fiction that berates white females for reporting interracial rapes to the police is required reading that has primed a generation of campus “rape” activists to turn their attention away from real crimes to policing all men for the crime of being male.

    Her anti-Israel activism started as fashion and a grudge with an ex. But because it is fashion in no way means it is less dangerous. The people who adopt an anti-Israel stance because it’s popular in academia demonstrate a dangerous willingness to be swept along unquestioningly. The safety of crowds turns into the radicalism of mobs.

    Truthout, Alternet, Counterpunch, TheNation, Salon and other leftist outlets (or fringe-left sites) literally will not write a single positive word about Israel, no matter what.

    If this isn’t antisemitic, I don’t know what it is. It certainly isn’t just “honest political analysis.” Those sites/outlets and many others literally filter out anything positive or neutral about Israel. They refuse to share it.

  • BradD99

    Max Blumenthal is now the hero of the “intifada” loving extreme-left antisemitic world.

    And somehow these people pretend they aren’t antisemtiic.

    They are OK with Muslim-majority states being Muslim, Arab-majority states being Arab, yet the one tiny Jewish-majority state being a Jewish state is apparently suddenly “racist and exclusionary and evil” and needs to be erased/destroyed. ANd if you disagree, the Blumenthal SS gang will yell that you “obviously hate equality.”

    You religious idiots need to wake the F up. This is all about money and power and you know it. The Jews have it and the Palestinians don’t.
