Who Needs Alt-Right Conspiracy Theories About Jews When You Have Politico?

Politico has written an indictment of an entire sect of Judaism, getting basic facts wrong and making wild implications about a Jewish conspiracy in Russia tied to the Trump family.

Imagine for a moment the outrage that would (rightfully) erupt if a mainstream publication wrote an indictment of an entire sect of Islam, while getting basic facts like the name of the sect wrong, and hit publish the night before Ramadan began. Or the outrage that would (rightfully) erupt if Breitbart or an alt-right site published the same about Jews. The latter did happen over the weekend, only it wasn’t Breitbart writing a diatribe against a secret web of shadowy Jews, but instead, Politico Magazine.

    Who needs the Onion when you’ve got Politico?

    I’m going to be silent on this one as I am not a fan of Chabad although I do admit that they do good work. Among other things, they’re just a little too culty for my taste.

    Can someone explain to me again why blaming the Jews for everything is rational? I’ve been seeing more of it online recently and I don’t understand it. Israel has invented a lot of things I enjoy and are always under attack. To me it’s like blaming hutterites for the world’s ills.
