Racist self-tacklization

Reader comment on item: Do I Not Criticize Israeli Policies?

Submitted by John Shepard (United States), Sep 29, 2013 at 14:43

Sick, sick, sick.

I knew a few Turks and they were very moderate and always found my (hidden-away) scotch. I never heard a hint of anti-Semitism from any of them. I tactfully made my holding early just in case.

Anti-Semitism is idiocy writ large. It's self-tacklization! Why shoot yourself in the foot? Have the blind haters learned nothing since the Holocaust?

One cannot honestly present him/herself as having reached the estate of sane adulthood whilst ignorantly abetting the ignoble hate of Israel and its people and their honest allies.

The Turks I met in Korea (circa 1955-56 as a military policeman) were MPs in the Turkish Brigade and were impressive, no-nonsense and DID seem to not care for the Greeks – which may be allowable.

Except: how could any man hate Andrea Tantaros?

Heh-heh.
