The Dishonesty of Little Green Footballs

Via Memeorandum I found this link at Little Green Footballs. For those who don’t want to actually go to that site, it contains some anti-Semitic graphics taken from a diary at Daily Kos with the caption “This one speaks for itself.”

Of course it does not speak for itself as the presentation is misleading. They don’t mention that this is just from a diary there which anyone could put up. The diary was tagged as a “troll diary” and it might even have been placed by a right wing troll in the first place. Even if not, a single diary is not representative of the views of readers at Daily Kos. A better indication of their views might be seen in the comments, which are opposed to anti-Semitism. There is a comment to leave it standing as evidence of the problem of anti-Semitism in light of the denials of some that it exists.

The right wing has been trying for years to get the Jewish vote for the Republicans with attempts at fabricating a case of widespread anti-Semitism on the left along with denial of the more meaningful problem of anti-Semitism on the right. They aren’t fooling anyone.

    As if right wing trolls haven’t been known to do this. Its not uncommon find such a troll post, and then track it back to its source and find a bunch of right wingers laughing about what they think they accomplished in putting up the post.

    If that awful pic was posted by ‘right-winger’, I personally condemn it with every fiber of my being. While that may not be too many fibers (I am only 5′, lol), those are the most powerful fibers.

    Would you please get the people on your side of the aisle to do likewise?
