It is so strange that the same liberals who were silent about anti-Semitism during the eight years of the Obama administration — the most anti-Semitic in my lifetime — are suddenly the great protectors of Judaism. They will come up with any lame example in an attempt to brand the Trump administration as Jew-haters.
The latest sick try was by the Huffington Post, which has a long history of anti-Semitism. The liberal site had the chutzpah to call the use of the word globalist by Mick Mulvaney an anti-Semitic code word. Mulvaney was using it in reference to parting economic advisor Gary Cohn.
According to the Huffington Post writers Nina Golgowski and Luke O’Brien:
The term “globalist” was used to describe an outgoing Trump administration official during Wednesday’s White House press briefing, raising eyebrows on social media because the term is increasingly used in xenophobic and anti-Semitic contexts.
The word came up when a reporter asked press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders whether a similar candidate will take the place of the outgoing director of President Donald Trump’s National Economic Council, Gary Cohn, who is Jewish.
“He was a noted free trader, a globalist. Will the president seek another globalist, another free trader?” Fox News reporter John Roberts asked. [Note John Roberts works for FNC, so the Huffington Post was trying tto kill two birds with one slander].
Its use also came one day after Mick Mulvaney, director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, used the word “globalist,” in quotations, to describe Cohn in a statement that was posted by his department on Twitter.
It’s ironic that Huffington Post, whose editorials are anti-Semitic on a regular basis, would dream of labeling anyone else as a Jew hater.
One of its columnists, M.J. Rosenberg, is so anti-Semitic rhat he was thrown out of Media Matters. Rosenberg is famous for using anti-Semitic slurs portraying both Israel and American Jews as war-mongers and claiming that Jews control the media and government. Rosenberg’s most famous line was claiming that anyone who supports Israel was an “Israel-firster,” more loyal to Israel than the United States. He eventually dropped the term but continued to promote tha fake charge.
In 2014 the Huffington Post published a “list post” called “The 7 Most Exclusive Secret Societies in History.” The post pointed to six secret societies that actually existed. However, the seventh, “the Elders of Zion,” never existed anywhere except in the bigoted minds of anti-Semites. The author of the piece eventually explained that the Elders are fictional, However, the fictional label follows a description of existing secret societies, providing a false context for the faux organization that the quick disclaimer does not adequately address.
There used to be a site called Huff-Watch, which until 2015 alerted readers of the hatred oozing from pores of the Huffington Post, much of it directed at Jews. Below are ten examples from Huff-Watch’s archives. There is much more where these came from.
- HuffPost top “news”: “‘Fat Jew’ is a ‘F*cking Dick’”
- HuffPost gives murdered Miami, FL rabbi about as much coverage as you’d imagine
- HuffPost: Jews trying to control the NYT!!! (Silence on Hamas media restrictions)
- HuffPost enables torrent of anti-Semitic user comments in response to its incitement against Israel
- HuffPost front-page headline: Romney chased by “pack of Jews”
- HuffPost busted in another lie: Follow-up on Penn. Jewish child camp attacks
- HuffPost’s anti-Semitic bias: Ignores Jewish children terrorized in Pennsylvania
- HuffPost buries French Jewish school massacre below junk stories
- Jew-haters, unite (at HuffPost)!!! All you have to lose is your inhibitions.
- HuffPost’s anti-Semitic, pro-Islamist bias: Lara Logan gang-rape edition
Here’s the bottom line: Whether globalist is an anti-Semitic code word really doesn’t matter because the only people who made that association are themselves virulent Jew haters.
Mulvaney does not have a record as an anti-Semite and didn’t use globalist in an anti-Semitic manner. Plus, during his congressional career, he was known as a supporter of Israel.
The Huffington Post in contrast has always been been a fertile breeding ground for Jew hatred, while never daring to attack liberals who are genuinely anti-Semitic, such as Barack Obama, Al Sharpton, or much of the CBC. Perhaps the Huffington Post should worry about its own house before it makes false charges against others.
