20 August 2008 - Another reason why I'm not a Democrat
Back in 2000-2001, many of my fellow Jews on the left began to feel profoundly uncomfortable about the antisemitism that leapt to the fore after the start of the second intifadaand again after 9/11.
It seemed to be mostly a fringe phenomenon, but there was always the worry that some of the crazy conspiracy theories and such would move into the mainstream.
That appears to have happened now, with the Democratic National Committee's attack on Republican Congressman Eric Cantor of Virginia, a potential McCain Vice-Presidential pick. The DNC's hit job mentions Cantor's religion in nearly every paragraph.
Read it for yourself here.
Or, once the DNC takes the page down, visit Dan MacLaughlin's excellent post (with screenshot) here.
