Jeffrey Lord’s “A Mighty Democrat Has Struck Out” touches only briefly on the kind of anti-Semitic commentary (and 9/11 conspiracy theories worthy of the Jeff Rense Show along with occasional racism) that appears at MoveOn.org’s Action Forum. Comments range from denouncing Joe Lieberman as “Jew Lieberman,” accusing Jews of having divided loyalties between Israel and the United States, and even saying that Jews did something to deserve the Holocaust. The last garnered 9 out of 12 forum participants voting their approval.
Although MoveOn.org tried to disclaim responsibility for the postings, there is overwhelming evidence that the group was monitoring the forum and removing posts with which it disagreed well before the breaking scandal forced them to address the anti-Semitic ones. My own posting, “When the N word is used, a lady or gentleman leaves the room or turns her/his back as opposed to voting approval of the slur” was deleted very quickly while the anti-Semitic slurs to which this referred were allowed to stand.
Secondly, MoveOn.org lied to the Anti-Defamation League about removing (all) the slurs because “Nearly 3/4 of the entire Jewish population was exterminated. If you can’t tell us why, We are stuck with logic and commonsense…By blaming Hitler you don’t have to face the truth.” Was online more than two weeks later.p>Finally, one of MoveOn.org’s own bulletins made the “divided loyalties” implication and cited a Counterpunch article that is even worse. Bob Casey can be MoveOn.org’s friend or the friend of decent Americans who have no use for racism, anti-Semitism, and accusations br> that the U.S. Government perpetrated the worst mass murder in our country’s history, but he cannot be both. br> — William A.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
