Sen. Schumer: BDS Is New Modern Anti-Semitism
JP Updates ^ | 3-3-14 | Jacob Kornbluh

Posted on 03/04/2014 3:40:26 PM PST by SJackson

Schumer at AIPAC 2014NY Senator Charles Schumer railed Monday against the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement, saying that the movement is a modern form of anti-Semitism.

“It is very suspicious that those who boycott Israel don’t want to boycott anywhere else in the world,” Sen. Schumer told AIPAC. “I believe that those who call for boycotts of Israel without calling for boycotts of other neighboring nations are practicing, whether they know it or not, whether they admit it or not, a modern form of what we call anti-Semitism.”

“The word that describes all of these acts is a very simple one: anti-Semitism,” said Schumer to loud applause.

Sen. Schumer also has some hidden indirect criticism at Sec. of State John Kerry for suggesting last month that Israel will face a boycott regime if it fails to advance the peace process. “Those who even with the best of intentions warn Israel that she must make agreements she feels unjust because the boycotting will only get worse in the future, those people have it all wrong,” Schumer said. “Those quote-unquote friends should be condemning the boycotts in every possible way and weakening them.”

Yes, Chuck is correct. Before anyone brings up how often broken clocks are correct, I'd suggest a check dated February 29 would be a more accurate analogy. As to

Those who even with the best of intentions warn Israel that she must make agreements she feels unjust because the boycotting will only get worse in the future, those people have it all wrong

a shame he didn't mention the President and Secretary of State, that would be Obama and Kerry, and their cohorts by name. Too much to ask for I guess.

Yes, BDS is 99.44% Nazis (and maybe 0.56% mis-informed “do-gooders” who need to learn a little history)

Israel has ways of dealing with them, however...

Schumer is absolutely right. Boycotts were used by the Nazis to involve the mass population in anti-Semitic activities at least in a passive manner. This desensitized them for the horrible things to come. Few protested the anti Semitic laws, Kristalnacht, the forced emigrations, arrests, and finally mass executions. European leaders should know their recent history better and denounce these boycotts for what they really are.

No, it's not, but I don't think that's the sole reason for his comment. In the real world he has lots of company opposing BDS, though lots of dems, Obama and Kerry, don't operate in the real world. As even the Washington Post editorial board now acknowledge.

Chuck Schumer, avid fan of Barack Hussein Obama, wants to have it both ways: he wants to cheer on the crushing of freedom and liberty and the ruination of free-market capitalism, the U.S. Constitution, and the Judeo-Christian ethic WHILE AT THE SAME TIME pretending to give a damn about the state of Israel and the Jewish (voting) population of his state.

Sorry, Chuck—you cannot serve God and Mammon. And if you try to serve both, you end up with Mammon.

How I so wish the people of New York would fire this clown.

Anything he does is political. And he sees the tide turning on Dems. Ergo he needs to shore up the Jewish vote that they whizzed all over. So now he’s Chuck ‘Schlinder’.

Then back to shilling for that philo-Semite Hillary.

Yeah, it is, Schumer. Now, Chuckie, tell us which college campus recently engaged in this activity. And tell us, were these people Marxist Leftists, or were they Tea Party types?

And who, Chuckie, railed against them? That’s right, guys like Ben Shapiro who some might count as a Tea Party Conservative.

How about that.

I’m sure there’s a significant number of the inexplicably Israel hating Jews as well.

Yes without doubt the Jewish Suicide Syndrome self-hating Jews are in the boycott brigade too. (It’s so very very sad to see such psychologically sick people. )

Forget it. Schumer would turn his own parents into soap if he could gain political advantage.

I have to question my sanity when I agree with Chucky Putz

But he is correct. BB said to Boycott the Boycotters, and I hope Aipac’s 14,000 attendees go home and do that.

No school who is part of BDS should get public funding, and Jewish alumni should use the power of the checkbook and no longer support their Alma Matter monetarily.

“Schumer would turn his own parents into soap if he could gain political advantage.”

Warn me next time that you intend to crack a joke. Now I need to spend an hour cleaning the pop off my keyboard.

Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.....Funny, I was thinking of posting essentially that same proverb after I read the posted article about Schumer and before I read that comment. As they also say, great minds think alike. (LOL!)

Wait, is that the same Schumer who's usually wrong on everything? Nice to see him right once in his life...
