NYT Columnist Retweets Message Comparing AIPAC to Pigs

A New York Times columnist has come under fire after retweeting a controversial message that referred to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and the National Rifle Association (NRA) as “the 2 most pig like lobbies” in America.

According to Adam Kredo of The Washington Free Beacon, Columnist Nicholas Kristof on Wednesday afternoon retweeted the message written by longtime Israel critic M.J. Rosenberg, which recalled the recently unearthed statements by Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi that referred to Jews as “pigs.”

“OBAMA told the 2 most pig like lobbies, AIPAC & NRA, to drop dead in same month. Next: Chamber of Commerce,” wrote Rosenberg, who was recently fired by the liberal Media Matters for America for his use of borderline anti-Semitic language.

Rosenberg has gained notoriety within pro-Israel circles for regularly espousing anti-Israel and often anti-Semitic beliefs.

He has repeatedly used the anti-Semitic term “Israel firster” to describe American Jews whose main concern in American politics is its effect on the State of Israel.

History showed us that during the French Revolution an awful lot of people who thought that they were on the ‘right’ side still met Madame Guillotine. These members of the fourth estate (5th column) may get a really big surprise...and soon.

Too extreme, even for Media Matters.

Thanks Nachum.
