don't respect something that has no respect:
First they came for Zbigniew Brzezinski, and I didn't speak up, because I wasn't Zbigniew Brzezinski. Then they came for Rob Malley, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't Rob Malley. Then they came for Samantha Power, and I'll cut down any motherfucker who so much as bats an eyelash in the direction of suggesting that Samantha Power is an antisemite. These people will stop at nothing until they define all of liberalism as antisemetic. Rubin used to whine about the "criminalization" of the policy debate. Well, sorry: you don't get to do that and then call anyone a hair to the left of you a Jew-hater.
Shmuel Rosner of Ha'aretz profiles Power about the rising tide of extremist, unrepresentative American Jews calling everyone associated with Obama an antisemite. She replies:
But she doesn't understand what all the fuss is about: She doesn't claim that the NIE is correct, but rather that the international community is using it to fend off Bush on the Iranian issue. And lest there be any doubt: "I do not underestimate the threat that is Iran." Her objective - Obama's objective - is "to neutralize Iran."Happy now, you assholes? Do you have the precious "clarification" you've demanded from a woman who has forgotten more about geopolitics than you'll ever know? Of course they'll never be satisfied, because this game is rigged. Not a single question from them is asked in earnest, in good faith or in the spirit of open inquiry. That's why the response from liberals must be swift, decisive and overwhelming exposure of the smear. They will not stop at calling Barack Obama an antisemite. They will call you an antisemite, whether or not you are Jewish.
Update: Oh, look here too. Look what AIPAC says!
"Senators Clinton, Obama, McCain and Governor Huckabee have demonstrated their support for a strong U.S.-Israel relationship," AIPAC president Howard Friedman wrote to NEWSWEEK. (AIPAC says all three senators have strong congressional voting records on issues important to the U.S.-Israel relationship.)Do you know what that means, Rubin et al (and that includes the Clintonites)? That means it's time for you to shut the fuck up.
