Anti-Israel Blogger Praised by Media Goes on Crazy Racist Rant Over Pro-Israel Black Woman

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

A little tip for Richard Silverstein, you don’t get to shout “Uncle Tom” or try to sound like a cartoon version of a black 60s radical when you’re whiter than cottage cheese.

You just don’t.

Perhaps proud black man, Richard Silverstein would consider Martin Luther King who said, “When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews, you are talking anti-Semitism” another Uncle Tom.

Richard Silverstein

Richard Silverstein, an amateur hatemonger praised by the mainstream media because he directs his hatred at Israelis, melted down quite badly when discovering pro-Israel activist Chloe Valdary’s article criticizing Judith Butler.

Then Richard Silverstein suggested that Chloe couldn’t have written her article on her own.

 

Chloe replied by noting the absurdity of an Uncle Harry accusing her of being an Uncle Tom.

Silverstein reacted to criticism of his racist Tweet with all the grace and dignity you would expect from Norman Finkelstein.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Buffer, stepping in to help Richard Silverstein, the man with no filter. But don’t worry, the Forward and the New York Times will go on quoting Richard Silverstein and taking him seriously no matter how many crazy racist things he says on Twitter.

In response to Richard Silverstein’s racist rant, Chloe replied.

“To be honest, the attack really did hurt me. Not because of who had said it, but because I didn’t really think it was possible that in today’s world, in the 21st century, there would be such bold and overt racism expressed by someone who is looked up to in the media.”

“That someone would actually suggest that my writings should be questioned because I’m a young black girl, that was a painful reminder of what my ancestors had to endure, and it reinforced my sense of duty to the cause of freedom, to which all peoples must aspire.”

When this reporter expressed surprise that someone like Silverstein could hurt the feelings of someone like Valdary, she replied,

“Yes, Saturday was a very bad day for me. It’s not that he means anything, it’s just that you know my people’s experience is poignant and, to be frank, I’d never experienced anything even remotely resembling [the ugliness of] pre-civil rights movement in America. But it’s a teaching moment.”

  • Zeke

    The commie mind is in total meltdown.

  • Trapnel

    It would appear that for some on the fringe, or even mainstream, left, black people are judged by the colour of their skin – and they are made aware of this in no uncertain terms when they step out of line.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      The left considers black people property of the progressive cause. Silverstein said as much.

      • uptownsteve

        Puh-leeze. The only blacks the right can stomach are the ones who grin in their faces and dance for them. I wonder how Valdary feels about Israel expelling the African workers?

        • Habbgun

          Sayeth the red diaper baby…..You do notice the photos?? You do notice that some Israeli soldiers are black? You do know what the Arab thinks of Africans? Of course you don’t. You only know what you got spoon fed. Sad really.

          • uptownsteve

            Many Arabs are black. You ever been to Egypt or Mauritania? Ever heard of Anwar Sadat?

          • Habbgun

            Yep….they look down on Africans too…ROFLMAO

          • uptownsteve

            Yeah right. Everyone hates blacks except white rightwingers. LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Judahlevi

            Two problems with your attitude.

            One, you don’t speak for anyone other than yourself.

            Two, people are not defined by their skin color, they are defined by their minds. If you define people by their skin color, you are a collectivist and a racist.

            Each individual mind is unique. There is no such group as “white right-wingers.” That is an abstract creation which does not exist in reality.

            This woman is entitled to her opinion and is only being attacked because of her skin color. This is racist. The individual attacking her is a believer in an ideology which defines people by their skin color – which makes it a racist ideology.

          • uptownsteve

            Hmmmm. Why do so many FPM posters attack liberal Jews?

          • Drakken

            Because commi jews truly believe that they can make peace with people that want them dead and openly side with the enemy in the hopes they will survive, I just call them future Darwin Award winners, just like you.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            Because there is an intense culture war going on in the West. And you’re apparently a dupe.

          • Hugo Fitch

            Why do so many left wingers attack conservative blacks?

          • uptownsteve

            Because they are sellouts and Toms.

          • Omar

            No they are not. Unlike you, black conservatives are not racists nor bigots. Unlike you, black conservatives are American patriots. You are jealous that they have accomplished more things than you, you racist loon.

          • Shel_Zahav

            uptown steve thinks that all blacks are required to think the same. They must know their place — the place that uptown steve assigns to them.

          • Habbgun

            Why because liberal Jews have engaged in propaganda wars funded by a rich few but pretended broad support. A mass of people have the right to say they don’t represent me. This will only get more intense. Sorry to break the news to you.

          • Omar

            We oppose Jews who slander their own people in Israel for the pleasure of Islamist bigots that you support. Left-wing groups like Jewish Voice for Peace grin and perform for Islamist bigots like the militants from Hamas and Hezbollah who want to destroy Israel and commit a second Holocaust. Fact-check.

          • Drakken

            That woman you speak of is the exception, not the rule, if you have ever been to Africa the same attitude permeates. That is why 95% of the blacks in the US voted for Obummer and will stay on the democratic plantation come h*ll or high water.

          • Shel_Zahav

            Being a leftist is all about denying the individual and classifying everybody according to some group: race, gender, social class, sexual preference. That is why leftists in America hate their Constitution as it deals only in individual rights and does not recognize these groups.

          • SCREW SOCIALISM

            Everyone hates blacks except leftards and islamofascists? LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!

          • objectivefactsmatter

            Everyone?

            So how old are you, upchuck?

          • Omar

            Shut the f**k up, you racist. You support progressive racism and Communist totalitarianism, as well as Islamism. I’m wondering if you are affiliated with the NOI or the radical left-wing organizations like Workers World, since you post their propaganda on an almost daily basis. Fact-check, you loon.

          • Habbgun

            You know I never said that….I am merely saying your loyalty to the Democrats is a joke. They are just a self-serving organization like anything else. Buyer beware.

          • Daniel Greenfield

            Might want to look at the state of the Nubians in Egypt

          • uptownsteve

            What about it? I smell some more baseless bullcrap from you Greenfield.

          • Daniel Greenfield
          • Drakken

            Because there is a difference between and arab and a Nubian you dumbazz.

          • Shel_Zahav

            You will not be confused with facts.

          • kilfincelt

            Or in Saudi Arabia. Furthermore, the Arabic language has many words for slave; but one word means slave and black. That word is “abd”.

          • Richard Sandler

            So are the 27million Black African slaves of Islam.

          • Raymond_in_DC

            Did you know the Arabic word for a black person (“abed”) is the same word for servant or slave?

            Curious you mention Mauritania – where slavery (usually of those same blacks) is still practiced. Slavery wasn’t outlawed in Saudi Arabia until 1963, but black Saudis (the descendants of slaves) still live under legal discrimination.

            And Sadat, while dark, wasn’t black.

          • uptownsteve

            Sadat openly revealed that his mother was a black woman.

          • Disapp

            All Egyptians aren’t Black. Anwar Sadat was half Egyptian and half Sudanese.

          • Shel_Zahav

            Ever hear of the Saudi practice to keep Arabs with black ancestry out of their gene pool?

        • Daniel Greenfield

          Might want to contrast that with how much a small country has already taken in.

        • glpage

          Your statement about blacks and the right is interesting in that it indicates racism on your part. You are suggesting that Valdary and other blacks who don’t toe the party line are the Stepin Fetchit sort of black. So, blacks who think for themselves and decide the leftist plantation isn’t for them are second class to you. You prove Greenfield’s statement.

          • uptownsteve

            You prove my point. Are you actually suggesting that rightwing blacks are the only blacks who think for themselves or are off the “plantation”?

          • glpage

            Nothing in my reply even hints at that. I assume blacks who toe the leftist line want to be where they are, their choice. I have to assume they are adults, I believe they are wrong, but that’s life. Do not project your beliefs onto me.

          • uptownsteve

            Sooooo, you didn’t say that Valdary and other rightwing blacks “think for themselves and decide the leftist plantation isn’t for them”?

          • glpage

            I did, but that does not imply anything beyond them. You are the one assuming it does. You are also the one assuming that blacks who lean right are lesser.

          • uptownsteve

            I said nothing about rightwing blacks being “lesser”. Just blind obsequious fools who toady for people who hate them.

          • Daniel Greenfield

            Care to guess what the Clintons really think of black people? (Hint: you got a preview of it in the Dem primaries.)

          • Drakken

            Like I have said before, if you hate whitey so much, f**k off to the motherland of Africa, where I am sure you would be much happier.

          • Omar

            Uh, you actually believe that black conservatives are “lesser” And no, conservatives do not hate them. Left-wingers hate black conservatives because the latter exposes the former’s lies about America. Fact-check.

          • Drakken

            Here dumbazz, I’ll say it for you, you useless idiots on the left cannot think and won’t think for themselves. Your living proof of it.

          • SCREW SOCIALISM

            Ask the skin color exclusionary Congressional Black Caucus.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            No. They don’t have to be right wing. They just have to be off the teat of the left.

          • Shel_Zahav

            No. you missed the point!

        • mon951

          The problem begins when you call them African workers as the real determination is “illegal cross-borders”. They came through Egypt ( which they couldn’t stay as they were illegal and being miss-treated ) and crossed the boarders without permission. They are being treated just as any other person from any other colour, country, origin,,,, would be treated if coming here without permission and this my friend is not racism !! Every contry in the world has to right to defend its borders and they all do….. when it comes to Israel suddenly this is not right?? You r the one being racist for blaming us for things you would not blame other countries !!!
          Btw all people coming to Israel with a permit are very welcomed and even fall in love with Israel !!
          How can u even defend a man that says that a young black woman is not capable of thinking for herself ?? This is sick !!!!!!!!!!

        • SCREW SOCIALISM

          Puh-leeze. The only blacks the left can stomach are the ones who grin in their faces and dance for them.

          • uptownsteve

            Yeah right. That’s why black liberals have been elected to the highest offices in the land by diverse constituencies and black Republicans can’t get elected dogcatcher because white Republicans won’t vote for them.

          • Cynthia Hancock

            Elected by diverse constituencies… are you high? Its called affirmative action my friend. The reason why black conservatives don’t get elected? look no further than the fem-nazi brigade…. Character Assassin and false accusations regarding sexual misconduct is their specialty. Anything to scare the majority of black women who provide most if not all of the liberal votes. While it is the left murdering how many black babies since 1973? I cant wait until black americans finally wake up and realize whats been done to them over the past 50 years by those who claim to champion their cause.

          • uptownsteve

            I think YOU are the one high posting this gibberish. LMAO!!!!!!!

          • truebearing

            That was a stupid statement. I believe there is a black Republican senator from South Carolina, and he didn’t get elected soley because of the black vote.

            Obama got a lot of votes from white Republicans, the fools, so your argument is failing at both ends. No surprise there.

          • uptownsteve

            Scott was not elected to the Senate. He was appointed. Watch when he runs on his own. White conservatives do not vote for black Republicans. No matter how much they grin and dance.

          • yoelk

            Mr. Steve, nose is growing, and you know you are lying.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            Those are your tokens. You just don’t get it. You don’t understand how they’ve distorted our curriculum because they think blacks are too stupid to compete rather than asking them to take school seriously.

            Of course they need the tokens.

        • SCREW SOCIALISM

          I wonder how uptownbeeatch feels about Muslims killing Africans in Nigeria, Nairobi Kenya and current day slavery in Sudan and Mauritania?

          • Drakken

            It does not compute in his little libtarded brain housing group. If it was white South Africans, you can bet he would be screeching like a banshee about it.

        • iluvisrael

          Israel has absorbed countless Ethiopians (they’re black – an imbecile like you might not know that). Don’t let facts interfere with your delusions.

        • yoelk

          Israel does not expel invited workers, African or otherwise, especially not based on skin color ,as you imply, troll. It does have an issue with primarily moslem illegal aliens, who have crossed through Egypt ,across Sinai ( with help from Egypt?) to claim various mythical “rights” for crossing the border.

          • SCREW SOCIALISM

            Why don’t the Africans migrate to and stay in Egypt?

            Is there something racist in Egypt that makes it inhospitable to black Africans?

        • Disapp

          Can you provide a link as proof regarding Israel expelling African workers? Why are you comfortable with name calling by anyone regardless of race?

        • Omar

          How exactly do black conservatives “dance” for their so-called “masters”, you f**k**g ignoramus? Meanwhile, your beloved Tim Wise performs for black racist groups like your beloved Nation of Islam and the New Black Panther Party, you loon. Also, Israel has never expelled African workers, you racist moron. Israel has welcomed refugees from African countries. When has any Muslim country in the Middle East been as friendly and generous towards other people as Israel?

    Good to see him taken down for his bigotry, which he thinks is acceptable for him, but not others, because he is just so righteous.

    • Judahlevi

      There is nothing righteous about him.

      I also find his site name of “Tikun Olam” to be a misnomer. The phrase means repairing or healing the world. His hatred does not “repair” or “heal” anything. He doesn’t add to the world, he subtracts from it. Is there any value to a comment like his?

      He is not a member of my tribe.

      • Ib4N8R

        seemed pretty ironic to spew such hatred right under the term ‘repair the world’. I guess he is doing good by spreading hate around so it does not remain concentrated in just one selfish little place (his mind).

        So full of hate he can’t see the joke that he is…

  • Avigayil

    My goodness, some people are really ignorant. I am one several black, orthodox, right-wing, zionist Jewish women in my neighborhood in Israel.

      • Avigayil

        Why is it so inconceivable to you? Must all black people have the same religion, political ideology, and lifestyle? My skin color defines the way that I look. My faith and values determine who I am otherwise.

        • ShirlinOz

          Well said Avigayil

        • Judahlevi

          “My faith and values determine who I am otherwise.”

          You are absolutely right. Your faith and your values come from your mind, not your body. They are what truly defines you as a Jewess.

          Skin color defines no one – it only affects your physical appearance – but says nothing else about you as an individual. We are all unique and wonderful individuals.

      • truebearing

        Why do you let your rigid, racist beliefs make a fool of you, over and over and over? People provide you with verifiable evidence of your wrong-headedness and you reject them without even considering that you may be wrong. You hate white people and you hate the truth. You even hate black people simply because they are more enlightened than you. Let it go. You’re losing. Whether you realize it or not, people here are trying to help you. It is time you recognize that the enemy is within you.

  • Binyamin

    “A little tip for Richard Silverstein, you don’t get to shout “Uncle Tom” or try to sound like a cartoon version of a black 60s radical when you’re whiter than cottage cheese.”

    I normally do not agree with the idea that Jews are white (as it is wrong and highly damaging to put Jews on the same level as those who have oppressed us for so long, often on racial grounds), but I’ll make an exception here, especially since I’m beginning to doubt that he is really Jewish.

  • Bill Pearlman

    Silverstein is a scumbag, always has been. Big fan of Samir Kuntar who bashed in the brains of a little Jewish girl.

  • truebearing

    Maybe Silverstein was convinced Chloe didn’t write her article because she is a better writer than he is and he couldn’t stand the idea of a younger, female, black person writing better than himself. That would make him an ageist, a sexist, and a racist. No wonder the media loves him.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      That’s exactly what it was. There was no other reason for hm to make the comment that he did.

  • Brianna Aubin

    Uh, Silverstein IS aware that there are black Jews in Israel, including in the IDF, right? Seeing as how active duty soldiers carry their rifles everywhere they go, I really wouldn’t suggest insulting THEM by calling them Uncle Toms or similar.
