The left only has one kind of anti-Semitism panel these days. And the New School's panel on anti-Semitism is a typical example. "The Uses and Abuses of Anti-Semitism."
There are no panels on "The Uses and Abuses of Racism." or "The Uses and Abuses of Islamophobia" accusing black people or Muslims of trying to silence people with false claims of bigotry. Even proposing such a thing would get one booted from the left faster than you can say, "Marx."
"What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money." Karl Marx
(But remember, anti-Semitism doesn't exist on the left. That's a false accusation made up by the Jews. And you can be a leftist anti-Semite of Jewish origin like Karl Marx or Rebecca Vilkomerson.)
These anti-Semitism panels can be summed up as, "How Jews falsely accuse the left of anti-Semitism to protect their Zionist war machine, Jewish lobby and control of the banks."
The left will briefly discuss anti-Semitism as a real thing only in the context of attacking the right. And will make sure to emphasize that anti-Semitism isn't nearly as bad as racism, homophobia, Islamophobia, etc... because Jews have a surplus of white privilege. Just ask a Holocaust survivor. Or a survivor of Stalin's gulags.
And so the New School's anti-Semitism panel is typical of how the left now discusses anti-Semitism. It invites lefties accused of anti-Semitism and Jewish anti-Israel activists as their shields. And then it allows them to spend an hour denouncing Israel and complaining how hurtful false accusations of anti-Semitism are.
If the left did this with any other kind of bigotry, heads would explode. But it's okay. Anti-Semitism is fine. Just ask Jeremy Corbyn or Joseph Stalin. Or Bernie Sanders, who responded to an anti-Semitic rant about the Jews controlling the banks by denouncing Israel. (There's no anti-Semitism on the left, just anti-Zionism, you know.)
At a Bernie Sanders event in New York City, a black “community activist” began ranting about “Zionist Jews” running the Federal Reserve and Wall Street. At previous events, Sanders had been quick to condemn what he claimed was bigoted and Islamophobic rhetoric by Republicans. But when confronted with the real thing by a left-wing activist at one of his own events, he couldn’t do it.
There was no condemnation of anti-Semitism. Instead after an initial claim that he was proud to be Jewish, he switched to a rambling speech criticizing Israel and distancing himself from Zionism.
So here's the New School's "Anti-Semitism Was Made Up by the Jews (and Anyway the Nazis Are Worse Than Us. Yay!) panel. Featuring Linda Sarsour.
Later this month, the university will co-sponsor a panel on anti-Semitism that will feature, among others, Linda Sarsour, who opined that “nothing is creepier than Zionism,” praised Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and believes one cannot support the right of Jews to a homeland of their own and still be a feminist. Alongside Sarsour will be Rebecca Vilkomerson, who heads the odious Jewish Voice for Peace. The group, as an ADL report aptly put it, “uses its Jewish identity to shield the anti-Israel movement from allegations of anti-Semitism and to provide the movement with a veneer of legitimacy.” Among JVP’s recent achievements are the enthusiastic support of Rasmea Odeh, a Palestinian terrorist convicted of a bombing attack on a Jerusalem supermarket that left two young students dead and who was recently deported from the United States after lying about the incident on her immigration forms. The group is also a frequent supporter, despite its allegations to the contrary, of Alison Weir, an activist robustly promoting modern-day blood libels against Jews.
Also on board are Lina Morales and Leo Ferguson.
Morales and Ferguson, ironically enough, spend most of their time accusing Jews of racism. Lina Morales is a JVP organizer. So the anti-Israel hate group will have two people on the panel.
Leo Ferguson is an organizer for Jews for Racial and Economic Justice. He pushes black nationalism while accusing Jews of not caring about the black community.
So we've got two people whose only real calling card is accusing Jews of racism on a panel denying that anti-Semitism exists on the left. All the while doubling down on their own racial tribalism.
One of them is from an organization linked to a speaker that promoted the idea that Jews drink blood. (But there's no anti-Semitism on the left.)
The deranged hypocrisy on the left is on display here.
It's a sick, twisted and hateful movement. And, oh yes, a thoroughly anti-Semitic one.
