The Heritage Foundation's New Judenrat

The "Judenrat" were the councils of Jewish collaborators who ran the Polish Ghettos for the Nazis. They also organised the lists of those who would be sent to the camps. Perhaps the most notorious traitor of all was Mordechai Chaim Rumkowski, or "King Chaim", who was head of the Lodtz ghetto. Now it seems the Heritage Foundation, rightwing think-tank and bankroller, has found a latter-day King Chaim to help them promote their own anti-semitism.

Cue Heritage Foundation writer Burt Prelutsky, a Jewish rightwinger. Today on, the Foundation's blog, he writes about "The Jewish Grinch who stole Christmas". Here are some samples from his article.

When it comes to pushing the multicultural, anti-Christian, agenda, you find Jewish judges, Jewish journalists, and the ACLU, at the forefront.

... the dirty little secret in America is that anti-Semitism is no longer a problem in society; it’s been replaced by a rampant anti-Christianity. For example, the hatred spewed towards George W. Bush has far less to do with his policies than it does with his religion.

...It is the ACLU, which is overwhelmingly Jewish in terms of membership and funding, that is leading the attack against Christianity in America. It is they who have conned far too many people into believing that the phrase “separation of church and state” actually exists somewhere in the Constitution.

You may have noticed, though, that the ACLU is highly selective when it comes to religious intolerance. The same group of self-righteous shysters who, at the drop of a “Merry Christmas” will slap you with an injunction, will fight for the right of an American Indian to ingest peyote and a devout Islamic woman to be veiled on her driver’s license.

I happen to despise bullies and bigots. I hate them when they represent the majority, but no less when, like Jews in America, they represent an infinitesimal minority.

I am getting the idea that too many Jews won’t be happy until they pull off their own version of the Spanish Inquisition, forcing Christians to either deny their faith and convert to agnosticism or suffer the consequences.

Dave Johnson at Seeing the Forest blog has some astute observations I can only agree with:

There has been a lot of talk in the blogosphere about "mainstreaming extremism" lately. That is Republicans injecting hard KKK stuff, disguised to sound more moderate, into mainstream outlets. The Republican charge that there is a "war on Christmas" is a prime example of this. Now we find out who they have been implying is behind this war - because they're dropping the code words and saying it out loud...The Christian Right has learned to use code words to disguise the anti-semitism at the core of their movement, but here they just come out and say it.

You think I've been kidding when I say that "liberal media" comes straight out of the old far-right "Jew media" and "Jew York Times" stuff? "Liberal" and "Jew" used to be interchangable words for the Right. They have always been able to talk about the ACLU to get votes in the South, but here you see what they have meant.

So do you think President Bush or any Republican leader will condemn this now? Are you kidding? He is more likely to give a speech at the Heritage Foundation than condemn them. He is more likely to send his Vice President to appear on a stage with the author of this piece. That's how they do it.

I would add that this atrocious nonsense matches up with the crap from the right about any attack on neo-cons being anti-semitic and with Bill O'Reilly's ridiculous attempts to work up a froth over the supposed liberal assault on Christmas. Like closet Republican gays who have to shout homophobically louder than others, these totalitarian wannabes shout louder and longer about assaults on liberty or free speech so that few ever see through the smokescreens they send up to cover their sociopathic natures.

Then again, sometimes they don't bother to hide their sociopathy or their racism. Harken to the blog called "Anti-Racist Losers", a member of the extreme right "Alliance" blogging group who think Glenn Reynolds is too lefty. This poisonous little weblog makes the following triumphant observation:

First, Jackie Mason said more people are outraged by public displays of Christmas celebrations than a Klan rally. Now, residents of Pulaski, Virginia are whining about sleighbells and mistletoe being replaced with stars and bars after the Klu Klux Klan made a sudden appearance in their local Christmas Parade.

Between the fire engines and church groups marching down the streets of Pulaski last Thursday was on old, lime-green Ford Bronco, adorned with Confederate and Klan bumperstickers and blaring "Dixie" styled music.

Not everyone saw it, and the car suddenly disappeared halfway through the parade. But those who did see the Klanmobile kvetched and moaned about being "outraged" by its presence.

See? It's ok to hate Christmas if you're a rightwinger!

Update 11th Dec If there are any Jewish readers out there you will no doubt be interested to know I was granted the honorary title of "Kike" by one rightwing racist forum for running this post. The stupidity of their presumption is obvious to anyone who reads Newshog regularly. Unfortunately, I'm a white, anglo-saxon guy who would probably be Protestant too if I wasn't Pagan. But I will wear the title of "Kike" with pride if it means I stand foursquare against these moronic white supremacists and their juvenile posturings.
