"Blood Libel" Graduates to "Pogrom" Status Against Palin, Conservatives - Page 2
Well, let's discuss the Kishinev pogrom, an anti-Jewish riot that took place in Chişinău, then the capital of the Bessarabia province of the Russian Empire (now the capital of Moldova) on April 6-7, 1903. The New York Times described it quite graphically.
The anti-Jewish riots in Kishinev, Bessarabia, are worse than the censor will permit to publish. There was a well laid-out plan for the general massacre of Jews on the day following the Russian Easter. The mob was led by priests, and the general cry, "Kill the Jews," was taken- up all over the city. The Jews were taken wholly unaware and were slaughtered like sheep. The dead number 120 and the injured about 500. The scenes of horror attending this massacre are beyond description. Babes were literally torn to pieces by the frenzied and bloodthirsty mob. The local police made no attempt to check the reign of terror. At sunset the streets were piled with corpses and wounded. Those who could make their escape fled in terror, and the city is now practically deserted of Jews.
Yeah. That sounds EXACTLY like what liberals are doing to Caribou Barbie and the radio hate speakers.
Then there's this description of a 1918 pogrom in the Polish city of Lvov.
“The Jewish city is in flames and living people, or burnt bodies, are buried under the demolished houses.… More than a thousand victims were murdered brutally, women raped, men—bayonet wounds and bullet holes on their bodies, piles of burnt bodies, people were trapped in blazing houses and doomed to die in the flames.” That was in 1918, twenty years before the gas chamber was invented.
I mean — WOW! Doesn't THAT sound EXACTLY like what's happening to Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly and the others who created the current atmosphere of hatred and uncivil discourse?
If the editors of the Washington Times were capable of shame, they should be ashamed of themselves.
Sarah Palin will obviously find comfort in the Times' words as she dabs her heavily mascaraed eyes as she addresses the the Safari International Club (SCI) in Reno, Nev. on January 29. Also on the speaker's and performer's list?
The Marshall Tucker Band, an Elvis impersonator, NASCAR team owner Richard Childress, talk radio host Michael Reagan, and, of course, Larry the Cable Guy.
Nice to get together with your intellectual equals now and then, eh, Sarah?
