Lefties are trying to spin the outrage over Alice Walker’s anti-Semitism as being a conspiracy theory issue.
Yes, Alice Walker believes in a variety of conspiracy theories. And yes, she’s also blatantly anti-Semitic in a way having nothing to do with conspiracy theories.
We’re talking about stuff like this.
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. This belief might even be enshrined in the Torah.’”
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.”
Like her Talmud poem, it’s gutter anti-Semitism. And that’s not surprising coming from a BDS activist and Farrakhan supporter.
I admire Farrakhan because he loves black people as I do. Loving us he feels it his duty to share the most bitter of truths. It is inevitable perhaps that we disagree on a number of issues, including some of my work, which he has criticized, but on this love for our people we are united. I take comfort in his courage, his intelligence and his wit. It is easy to see why, when he was a calypso singer, he was called “the charmer.”
Walker has cited Farrakhan on a number of occasions. Her anti-Semitism has a larger context beyond goofy conspiracy theories.
