WaPo Writer Stoops to New Low, Accuses Glenn Beck of Being “Anti-Semitic”
June 20, 2011 2 Comments
Every loyal Glenn Beck viewer knows he is the farthest thing from an anti-Semite.
Nevertheless, the MSM continues to spin the narrative that Beck hates Jews and Israel.
The Washington Compost…err, Washington Post, featured scathing drivel from Dana Milbank, who has a penchant for spewing venom on the likes of Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, and the Tea Party Movement.
His latest attack on Glenn Beck alleges that he is a “Jew-loving, anti-Semite.” He lamented Senator Joe Lieberman’s (I-CT) decision to join Glenn Beck at his “Restoring Courage” event in Jerusalem this August:
Lieberman, who knew Beck back when he was a morning DJ in New Haven, may have missed some of the broadcaster’s recent feats: hosting a guest on his show who describes as “accurate” the anti-Semitic tract “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”; likening Reform rabbis to “radicalized Islam”; calling Holocaust survivor George Soros a “puppet master,” a bloodsucker and a Nazi collaborator; touting the work of a Nazi sympathizer who referred to Eisenhower as “Ike the Kike”; and claiming the Jews killed Jesus.
According to this columnist, Glenn Beck is merely a ‘creature’, not a man. God forbid a conservative reaches out to Democrats and independents to stand with Israel! (Leftist brouhaha at its finest.)
The following is simply ludicrous:
I admire Lieberman, and I’ve defended him over the years when he defied party and faction. But if he shares a stage with this creature, he will surrender the decency that has defined his public life.
Beck appropriately lashed back at Milbank with the following from the The Blaze:
On his radio show Monday, Beck unleashed on the Washington Post for its “smears” and for “propping up lies.” Not only did he point out that he’s received the “defender of Israel award” from the Zionist organization of America — an honor previously bestowed upon the likes of Joe Biden, Tom DeLay, and even Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — but he also used a bit of historical evidence.
Indeed, George Soros surrendered Jews to Nazis. To deny such makes one guilty by association.
Self-hating Jews and their apologists should be scrutinized, not Glenn Beck. (As a pro-Israel half-Jew and Glenn Beck fan, these people do not speak for me, for his fans, or for other pro-Israel advocates.)
Enough of these people getting away with this smear campaign. I hope that Mr. Beck pursues legal action against Milbank for defamation. The truth will persevere, and Glenn Beck will continue to stand tall and be courageous.
To bury the hatchet, let me humor you with the following: If Glenn Beck is a “Jew-loving, anti-Semite”, then I might as well be a “Nazi-loving, anti-communist”! (Crying anti-Semitism v. Glenn Beck is illusory and nonsensical. It’s like claiming my deeply-rooted, anti-communist conservatism is based on love of Nazism and Marxist-Leninism. It just doesn’t make sense.)
