Remember the “Bubbie versus the GOP” cartoon videos during the 2004 election – they were commissioned by Forman. The videos included scenes of Republicans sewing a cross on the American Flag, and a cabal of red robed Republicans around a lectern with a cross on its front in a “this is the enemy” context. If the same videos had been produced with a star of David, the NJDC would have had a fit. Forman also tried to smear the Christian computer game “Left Behind: Eternal Forces” by charging that it encouraged the player to kill any one who would not convert to Christianity. While Mr. Forman has a constitutional right to say and write anything he chooses, his attack against Christianity was, and still is, offensive. Even the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said the video “crosses the line of sensitivity” and “pits Jews against Christians”.
Under Forman’s rule, the NJDC “no matter what” support of Obama’s Israel policy is not only wrong for the U.S. but for Israel as well. Obama broke a preexisting agreement with Israel over settlements and publicly bashed Israel for sticking to the agreement regarding natural growth of settlements. Obama has also called for Israel to go back to the 1967 pre-6 day war borders to establish a Palestinian state.
Both the NJDC and ADL have called for an end to “Pernicious anti-Sharia Conspiracy Theories” which is not a conspiracy but a reality in some parts of the country. Already Sharia law has found its way into the American court system. (link in PDF format). Don’t think Muslim wants Sharia law, read this.
NJDC blast what it perceives to be a Republican obsession with Muslims as “utterly unnecessary” when a second hearing was convened by Rep. Peter King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee Muslim radicalization. “Once again King has singled out the adherents of the Muslim faith, calling into question the loyalty of an entire community. All Americans who treasure the freedom of religion should be concerned with the growing suspicion of Muslim Americans by the Republican Party, which seems to be a requirement among its 2012 contenders.” I can’t help but wonder if they would have objected if the King hearings were on Christian radicalization!
The NJDC asked a newspaper syndicate to stop publishing conservative commentator Pat Buchanan’s columns. “We ask that you pull down Buchanan’s latest column from your website and that you stop publishing his over-the-top, conspiratorial screeds.” Guess I forgot that part of the Constitution that gave free speech only to Democrats.
The NJDC called on the media to stop inviting Ann Coulter as a guest commentator because they disagreed with her comments. “While Ann Coulter has freedom of speech, news outlets should exercise their freedom to use better judgment. Just as media outlets don’t invite those who believe that Martians walk the earth to frequently comment on science stories, it’s time they stop inviting Ann Coulter to comment on politics.”
Muslims sided with Jewish Groups to criticize Senator John McCain’s comments that he would prefer a Christian president to lead the United States and the NJDC immediately called on the Republican party to denounce McCain’s remarks. Ira Forman said “Former maverick John McCain’s statements were repugnant. I’ve been sad watching him transform from political maverick to religious right mouthpiece.”
The NJDC has said that Mike Huckabee is possibly the most dangerous and fanatical of all the Republican hopefuls, combining Christian fundamentalism with corruption. “The rise of Huckabee should be a major concern both for Republicans (who now have another very failed candidate as their potential nominee) and for Democrats (who should be concerned whenever an extreme candidate gets a whiff of the Presidency)”.
The NJDC has defended Moveon.org and J Street and other far left groups as bipartisan. J Street backs a two state solution to the Israeli Palestinian conflict and Moveon.org is, well, about as far left as you can get and, both are funded by George Soros.
Did I mention that NJDC also supports gun control and were pro Obamacare?
Where is the condemnation for Jeremiah Wright who Obama said was his mentor, spiritual advisor, his moral compass and his sounding board. Wright is a friend of Louis Farrakhan who has called Judaism a gutter religion and depicted Jews as blood suckers. Wright said America should wake up concerning the injustice and the racism under which the Palestinians have lived because of Zionism. Wright has further said to equate Jews with the State of Israel is to equate Christianity with rapper Flavor Flav. Where is the condemnation of Al Sharpton or Louis Farrakhan? Apparently you are only a hate-monger if you are Christian or Conservative!
The Democratic far left is only worried about Christians who aren’t Democrats. Cultural elitists view conservative Christians as barely literate crackpots who could explode at any moment. A darling of the far left, Rosie O’Donnel explained on ABC’s “The View” that “Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America where we have separation of church and state.” HBO’s Bill Mahr often refers to politically active Christians as “demagogues, con men and scolds.” Moveon.org manipulated a photo of Pope Benedict in 2005 in their ‘the Pope is taking over America’ ad. Amanda Marcotte suggests that Jesus’ mother should have used contraceptives or had an abortion. John Edwards blogger Melissa McEwan smeared Christians when she referred to Bush’s “wingnut Christofascist base” when lashing out against religious conservatives.
Personally, I feel that people who have to resort to Christian bashing to futher their own agenda should be ignored as the degenerates that they are.
Name calling techniques attempt to link a person or an idea to a negative symbol. Propagandist who use this technique are hoping that you will reject the person or idea on the basis of the negative symbol, instead of looking at the available evidence.
