Ya know, as a Joooo, I am always shocked to be reminded that I am part of a global conspiracy that runs the world. I keep forgetting about the awesome power I wield! (I do wonder what happened to my share of the loot, of course. Maybe the Scientologists took it!)
But lest you think that only wingnuts like Louis Farrakhan and Lyndon LaRouche believed in a grand Zionist conspiracy, here comes Jesse Jackson, speaking for Obama in France, to reassure you that The One believes it too.
The most important change would occur in the Middle East, where “decades of putting Israel’s interests first” would end.
Jackson believes that, although “Zionists who have controlled American policy for decades” remain strong, they’ll lose a great deal of their clout when Barack Obama enters the White House.
“Obama is about change,” Jackson told me in a wide-ranging conversation. “And the change that Obama promises is not limited to what we do in America itself. It is a change of the way America looks at the world and its place in it.” (emphasis mine)
I thought I was beyond being surprised by what Obama and his surrogates said, but this is farther out than I ever dreamed possible.
Look, if you want to talk about AIPAC, then say the word “AIPAC.” I agree that the AIPAC lobby is too strong, and I have no problem with loosening AIPAC’s stranglehold on Congress, personally. But what Jackson said about a Zionist conspiracy? Every Joooo in America knows what that means, just as we knew what it meant when Jackson called New York “hymietown.” This is classic anti-Semitic hate speech from a well-known anti-Semite. I thought Jackson had repented of his bigotry a long time ago, but I guess some prejudices die hard.
It wouldn’t be such a big deal if Senator Obama himself had not been so difficult to pin down regarding his policy towards Israel. We all know he has been both for division of Jerusalem and against it. His website makes no mention of the type of policies Jackson is espousing. Laughably, he has claimed that “no one has been a more stalwart ally of Israel.” I can think of a lot of people who would be able to support this claim, but Junior Senator Barack Obama is not one of them.
Who is the real Barack Obama, and what is he planning once elected? Can anyone tell? Anyone? Bueller?
I just don’t understand how this guy is still even in the race. I remember being equally frustrated when Rudy Giuliani was the frontrunner, and being so relieved when he finally collapsed under the weight of his own crazily scandalous past. What will it take for the corporate media to stop covering up for Obama? I’ll tell you one thing, if we Jooooz really DID run the media, there ain’t no way he’d get away with one of his spokespeople using these anti-Semitic code words to describe a prospective Obama presidency.
It seems to me that Obama just lost the Jewish vote, but I guess we’ll see what happens.
Pass the popcorn.
