GOP: Democrats Turn Blind Eye to OWS Anti-Semitism

Perhaps the day will come when a media type will bother to ask Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Steve Israel why they support a group that tolerates such vicious, ugly anti-Semitism. We won't be holding our breath waiting.

RE: OWS Anti-Semitism: Where's the Outrage?
Date: October 18, 2011

Democratic leaders have spent the last week championing the “Occupy Wall Street” movement, yet in the midst of protestors’ extreme anti-Semitic, anti-Israel comments, they’ve been silent.

Where’s the outrage? While protestors are seen spewing hate against Jewish Americans, President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz have declared their support for the demonstrations. Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chair Steve Israel even circulated a petition saying he’s “standing with” Occupy Wall Street.

Is Steve Israel standing with those calling for the killing of Jews? Does Debbie Wasserman Schultz agree with the various calls for Jews to be “run out of this country” and to oppose and "destroy" the state of Israel?

Democrats were quick to single out any instances of perceived extremism among Tea Party supporters, but with Occupy Wall Street, they turn a blind eye. President Obama claimed last weekend that Martin Luther King would support the demonstrations. But surely Dr. King would have called out these ugly displays of bigotry.

Indeed, we recently we received a solicitation from Israel seeking cash. He stated:
Help us build a powerful campaign to throw Tea Party radicals out of Congress and elect a Democratic Majority in 2012.
When will he and his party throw OWS radicals out of his party?

We showed this the other day, but it's worth repeating. This is who Democrats support.

Dr. King and the civil rights movement is not comparable. Dr. King was a leader (along with many others), and often silenced radicals in the movement so as to keep people like Mr. Spicer from extrapolating generalities from a small minority. OWS is inherently leaderless, there is no silencing, and likely will never be.

The only way you can claim a group of people are anti-semites or racist is over their actions as a group. Nothing has suggested that OWS is anti-semitic as a group. Nothing has shown Tea partiers are racist. Some may point at polls, but they give you the opinion of members, not the movement itself.

Lastly, democrats, republicans, and Bernie should all denounce any anti-semitic comments or racist comments coming from any person or group which proposes actions or policies that are racist or anti-semitic. The problem is of course both OWS and the Tea Party are both neither of those labels, so this is of course a non issue.
