Did He or Didnít He? WikiLeaks Founderís Alleged Anti-Jew Rant Reveals Schism In The Left
David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog ^ | Jesse Hathaway

Posted on 03/09/2011 12:32:56 PM PST by Michael van der Galien

British blog “Liberal Conspiracy,” which bills itself as the “UK’s most popular left-of-centre [sic] politics blog,” ran an article last week discussing an interview (or as they spell it Across the Pond, “interviewe”) between Julian Assange and Ian Hislop, the editor of news magazine (or, as British people say, “gumþéod”) Private Eye. Eye is the “UK’s number 1 best-selling news and current affairs magazine,” according to their website.

Liberal Conspiracy writer Sunny Hundal writes that,

“The article is titled, ‘A Curious Conversation With Mr. Assange’—and it is the phone version of a horrible car crash. While I support WikiLeaks as an entity and an idea, Julian Assange seems to have gone off the deep end.”

Hundal includes a scanned version of the magazine article, in which Assange accuses Private Eye of “joining in the international conspiracy to smear Wikileaks,” because Eye printed an article discussing the fact that noted Holocaust denier Israel Shamir is “associated” with Wikileaks (British-to-American translation: “Shamir works for Wikileaks”)

Assange went on to accuse Eye of printing, quote, “crap,” but was unable to answer what parts of the February 16, 2011 article he found to be “crap,” because—and I am still quoting Private Eye magazine directly—“[he] had not read it.”

According to the article, Assange went on to claim that the article in question was intended to “deprive him and his organization of Jewish support,” and that he knew exactly who wrote it, even though he had not even read the article in question. Unsurpisingly, Assange’s suspect was not the author of the article. Assange continued on his winning losing streak, claiming that Eye was part of a conspiracy involving UK Guardian journalists who—again, I quote directly—“are Jewish.”

And here all along we were told it was ONLY the neo-Nazi that vomited anti-Jewish bile.

Assaunge?, NPR, J Street, etc etc .
It seems the left and their fellow travelers are just as vile.

Notice how his anti-Christian rant is a non-issue. Anti-Christian bigotry is okay.

“Notice how his anti-Christian rant is a non-issue.”

No, it’s expected. The anti-Christian bigotry of the left is well-known. Dog-bites-man.

The fact that the Left hates Jews as much, if not more, has been carefully concealed.

I think most of us know that the vile left pretty much can’t stand Jews and especially Israel. Not shocking to us. Maybe the rest of the world with their heads in the sand, but not us.

I think it’s from being city-slicker Yankees, myself, but I really don’t care.

Mark Levin (?) wrote extensively about how Reform Judaism has been hijacked by liberals, just like so many urban Roman Catholic Churches (like Pelosi — her RCC is absurd) and so many old-line Protestant Christian Churches (e.g., Episcopal and others) have gotten hijacked.

The good ones will come around, the bad ones will not, just like everyone else.

Perhaps that’s it.
