But why are we even asking why the Left gets a pass on anti-Semitism?

From David Harsanyi at the Federalist:

Although certainly a serious concern, anti-Semitism is a relatively minor problem in American life. It is, however, getting difficult not to notice a trend among liberals of either ignoring, rationalizing, or brushing off anti-Semitism, which seems to be more commonplace on the Left than it has been in a long time.

But when identity politics and class warfare propel your movement, as it does the progressivism that’s becoming increasingly popular on the American Left, it’s almost inevitable that the Jews, who’ve tended to successfully navigate meritocracies, will become targets. This hate has traveled with socialists since Karl Marx first declared that “Money” was the god of the Jews. More.

Reality check: The simple answer, as it happens, is that Jewish people tend to vote left, no matter what, and believe it does them no harm. In a world different from the one we live in, they would be right.
