The feature photo of every article where the only major Jewish candidate for President raked in a boatload of money, just happens to be a pose mimicking the infamous "greedy jew" cartoon?

The anti-Semitic "meme":


The American media:



But this is not the first time:

What does TSR think? A coincidence too many?

penguin, before making a thread, ask yourself: "does anyone who isn't getting paid to care actually care about this"

the answer is usually no

If you ever saw far-left/right nonsense and thought, 'could it get any worse?' then behold the cynical shills like AngeryPenguin whose sole existence is to amplify cultural and political extremism and divisiveness.

Not sure what's anti-Semitic about taking a picture of someone wringing her hands. Especially when Ocasio-Cortez is a Catholic.

Please don't invent antisemitism to back up your politics. Do you really care about Jews being offended or is this just to make Bernie Sanders look like a victim? There is a huge amount of actual antisemitism in the world and watering it down with things like this isn't helpful at all and could even lead to more antisemitism.

This is especially ironic when you consider that the OP is a Corbynista.
Ever heard of Chris ”from the river to the sea” Williamson?

If there's going to be anti-semitism and Sanders linked together, it'll be the deliberate conflation of criticism of Israel and their apartheid imposed on Gaza with anti-semitism in an attempt to smear him with allegations of being anti-semetic (having just seen it tank Corbyn here).

This feels a bit irrelevant to the thread. The OP posted allegations of antisemitism against Sanders, not the other way around.

It was the anti-semitism allegations and his inability to deal with them that dogged him throughout the campaign, not arguments over being a tankie

It was much more than that.

But he dealt with the allegations as best as he could given his juggling of antizionist priorities over antisemitism within the party.

I'm not a fan of Sanders or Corbyn. Does one need to be a fan of Sanders to find anti-Semitism appalling?

I'm accused of being an anti-Sanders and an anti-Corbyn by supporters of each. It seems both sides dislike the articles I post - I am in the center.

I'm now worried that I was being anti-Semitic when I had my hands in this pose this morning. Or maybe I was applying hand cream....:dontknow:

If Israel is an apartheid state...
Why can Arabs sit in the Knesset and form political parties? (which black and mixed South Africans were prohibited from doing)
Why can Arabs and Jews attend the same universities?
Why are all Israeli government notices in Palestinian Arabic as well as Hebrew and English?
Why have Arabs won beauty contests in Israel (imagine a black winner of a beauty contest in apartheid South Africa)?

Those who disseminate British and American state propaganda would seem as centrists due to the nature of the status quo being in the political center by definition.
