Occupy Vermont-Burlington Has Dipped Its Toe Into The Anti-Semitic Cesspool
One of Occupy Vermont-Burlington's administrators has called the well known anti-Semitic, Rothchild family slander something that is "useful" to look at.
This OVB admin has promoted a post that resorted to not so sublime Jew-baiting by using source material from a renown racist, 9-11 Truther and very longtime anti-Semite, Eustace Mullins. Among Mullins'
The post I'm referring to was a direct allusion to a notorious anti-Semitic canard about the Rothschild (read: Jewish) family, the Federal Reserve and Mullins' "research" here. The poster further suggested that this sort of filth "be required reading for every high school student in the country after our movement is successful."
When clearly proper objections were raised to the anti-Semitic basis for the post, the OVB website administrator responded on October 24 in two posts at around 7:00 AM here:
"We don't need to split hairs about percentage points with respect to the Rothschild holdings, primarily because they are very good at concealing their direct connections and we might never be able to trace down all of it... Please, it's one article and a useful one at that."Really?
An article by a irrefutable bigot whose conspiracy theories have been promoted by none other than (drumroll, please) Glenn Beck here?
Truly a disgusting display by an OVB admin who's insisted on being an indisputable leader of the rest of us 99 percenters in Vermont. Perhaps an OVB working group is in order for further examination of such pricelessly inspiring works as the afore-noted Protocols of the Elders of Zion and the "struggles" of the author of Mein Kampf.
In a recent piece about institutional quandries and solutions regarding child molesters that are sometimes labeled "sins committed in the name of a higher good," essayist John Zmirak wrote of such ethical issues and predicaments that they “smell and look like lilies. But they flank a coffin. Lying dead and stiff inside that box is natural Justice." Will the leadership, and oh yes, there certainly is one, of OVB be just another purveyor of "situational justice" in America?
Is that all there is?
Of course, by now regular visitors to this blog are probably wondering, "What's this all got to do with Vermont secessionists?"
