Anti-Semitism at the Occupy Wall Street Rally

Posted by Steve Markowitz on October 14, 2011

In the early days of the Tea Party, some on the Left and in the mainstream media attempted to damage the movement by calling it racist.  That claim lost steam as it was patently untrue.  It was but another attempt by the Left to portray those who disagree with their political philosophy as either ignorant and/or racist.

While there are racist fringes in any political movement, the Right has to a great extent been purged of this disease due its sensitivity to such claims that came from the media’s focus on the Right’s legacy racism.  It wasn’t that long ago that Senator Trent Lott was purged of his leadership position in the Republican Party due to an insensitive comment at a Strom Thurmond birthday party.

The Left, on the other hand, has often been given a pass on the racism and anti-Semitism by the mainstream media.  When someone from the Left makes a racist or anti-Semantic remark, often it is excused by his Leftist associates with a comment such as “I know what’s in his heart”.

There is no better example of the pass the Left receives on racism than then one given to Barack Obama during his run for the presidency.  After Obama’s relationship with the racist Pastor Jeremiah Wright became public, the mainstream media and Democratic Party accepted his excuse that while he sat in the church and listened to Wright’s sermons for 20 years, he did not hear them.  Ludicrous!

Earlier this week, a video of one of the Occupy Wall Street’s protesters making aa Semitic rant was posted on YouTube, link provided below.  However, don’t expect the mainstream media to hold these Leftist protesters to the same standards they held the Tea Party.  Once again, this protester will be tagged as merely a fringe player on the Left and not representative of the movement; yet another pass for the Left.

The Democrat Party, who represents the Left, is a collection of special interests.  Many of these interest groups are legitimate with legitimate, if not misguided, causes.  However, the Democratic Party has also become home to radicals with racist, race baiting and anti-Semitic leanings.  That makes an anti-Semite, like the one ranting in the video, feel comfortable joining their rallies.  It also allows other protesters to ignore the cancer growing within the demonstration.
