It's time for The Nation to take responsibility for promoting the culture of hate that led to the murders
I hope Max Blumenthal is very proud today. He finally achieved his great dream. Inspiring the murder of Jews. It's what his hatefilled work, that even those on the left have disavowed, has been leading to.
Frazier Glenn Miller was identified Sunday afternoon by the Southern Poverty Law Center as the gunman who killed three people in an attack on two Jewish sites in Overland Park, Kansas. According to SPLC’s file on Miller, who was arrested under the alias Glenn Frazier Cross, he has been involved in white supremacist movements since the later 1970s, mostly ads a “grand dragon” in the Ku Klux Klan.
As Ron Radosh points out, Miller wasn't just inspired by the KKK, but also cited the work of leftist anti-Israel activist Max Blumenthal.
A quick look at some of the antisemitic extremist websites has led to the following post by Mr. Miller, reproduced verbatim below:
Israel Forming Super PAC to Attack Paul & Obama
This is some big dookee, yaw’ll.
Jew journalist Max Blumenthal exposes and explains this attempt by a foreign government Israel, to buy the presidential election for the neo-con, war-mongering republican establishment.
The Ron Paul fan site is since defunct, but it appears to refer to a Blumenthal interview on Putin's propaganda channel RT, which he has since defended, in which he claimed that Netanyahu was targeting Ron Paul and Obama.
Blumenthal is unsurprisingly fairly popular on the Ron Paul sites and there are 382 results for him on the Neo-Nazi VNN forum that the Kansas City killer patronized.
Neo-Nazis have found Max Blumenthal's left-wing anti-semitism quite useful and VNN's forums follow Blumenthal's career. Blumenthal is likewise popular on Stormfront with over 100 mentions.
After these shootings, it's time for The Nation's Katrina vanden Heuvel to take some responsibility for promoting the culture of hate spread by Max Blumenthal and its role in the Kansas City murders.
