Without question the nuttiest left wing blog in Australia outside of by definition the antisemitic blogs [ European Forum on Antisemitism*] is the "crowd funded" New Matilda. Don't hold your breath waiting for my donation, fellas. Not my crowd.
A typically sycophantic interview with Noam Chomsky, the vile old American man and the godfather of "moral equivalence"; the evil philosophy that draws a plumb line straight between murderous, Nazi inspired, misogynistic, Jew hating, homophobic regimes and gangs such as Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran, Syria and all the rest that oppress Muslims and Arabs wherever they have the power, and the very same Western civilisation that has allowed Chomsky and his admirers on the "liberal left" to prosper in complete freedom for as long as Chomsky has been on the rant.
What a bunch of wankers.
Look at this.
Chomsky Says We're Crazier Than Lemmings
Noam Chomsky has been at the forefront of the fight for justice and peace for decades. Justin Randle and Elizabeth O'Shea spoke to him about drones, democracy - and the increasing risks posed by climate change
For over five decades, Professor Noam Chomsky has been an indefatigable source of moral courage and sophisticated analysis of power. His work has inspired and prepared successive generations of activists for the task of challenging the status quo. He stands on the side of the powerless, at the centre of his work are the "unpeople" — those without rights; unfit to enter history; whose lives are deemed expendable.
Late last year Justin Randle and Elizabeth O’Shea spoke with Professor Chomsky at MIT in Boston about drones, democracy and elite consensus.
Elite consensus. WTF?
Che Gorilla was moved to say this.
|The "Liberal Left" In Caucus|
One thing is for certain.
Chomsky is madder than a cut disco dancing jihadist lemming on Christmas Day.
"Noam Chomsky has been at the forefront of the fight for justice and peace for decades."
Anybody capable of saying that can only be the product of a depraved education system in terminal decline and poor parenting. There is something rotten at the very core of the modern self proclaimed "liberal left".
*WORKING DEFINITION OF ANTISEMITISM
The purpose of this document is to provide a practical guide for identifying incidents, collecting data, and supporting the implementation and enforcement of legislation dealing with antisemitism.
Working definition: “Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”
In addition, such manifestations could also target the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity. Antisemitism frequently charges Jews with conspiring to harm humanity, and it is often used to blame Jews for “why things go wrong.” It is expressed in speech, writing, visual forms and action, and employs sinister stereotypes and negative character traits.
Contemporary examples of antisemitism in public life, the media, schools, the workplace, and in the religious sphere could, taking into account the overall context, include, but are not limited to:
- Calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews in the name of a radical ideology or an extremist view of religion.
- Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective — such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.
- Accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, or even for acts committed by non-Jews.
- Denying the fact, scope, mechanisms (e.g. gas chambers) or intentionality of the genocide of the Jewish people at the hands of National Socialist Germany and its supporters and accomplices during World War II (the Holocaust).
- Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.
- Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations.
Examples of the ways in which antisemitism manifests itself with regard to the State of Israel taking into account the overall context could include:
- Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor.
- Applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.
- Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis.
- Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.
- Holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel.
However, criticism of Israel similar to that leveled against any other country cannot be regarded as antisemitic.
Antisemitic acts are criminal when they are so defined by law (for example, denial of the Holocaust or distribution of antisemitic materials in some countries).
Criminal acts are antisemitic when the targets of attacks, whether they are people or property – such as buildings, schools, places of worship and cemeteries – are selected because they are, or are perceived to be, Jewish or linked to Jews.
Antisemitic discrimination is the denial to Jews of opportunities or services available to others and is illegal in many countries.
I should have added that comments like geofff’s are an insidious threat to world peace but I suspect the subtlety would have been over his head.
And there is not the slightest doubt that the subtlety of that is over your head.

I visited geofffff’s site - you should all visit - its hard for me to describe - I think there is a special place in the political spectrum where the extreme right start to love normally extreme left conspiracy - I think its leader is possibly Glenn Beck, Andrew Bolt is a minor member. Gina be praised.

Don’t worry zeroxcliche
I'm sure you will find a place to pigeon-hole me. It’s how a mind like yours works. It’s all about classification. Anything but thought. Like Chomsky its a kind of sharia mentality. It’s how third rate academics have been polluting the minds of the young at public expense for generations. That’s why you regard criticism of the Great Man as a kind of blasphemy. “Noam Is Great”
