MJ Rosenberg Stereotypes Jews Again

I haven't really wanted to write about MJ Rosenberg lately, but this Tweet by him was too offensive to ignore:

This is a perfect example of what I mean when I take issue with what Mr. Rosenberg writes. He saw something that he didn't like, and immediately tapped out a response to it lambasting not "Zionists," not "Likudnicks," not "AIPAC," but Jews. Including himself!

Maybe it was a mistake and "Zionists" was what he meant to write. But if so, it's an informative mistake because it spread malicious stereotypes about Jews such as that they exploit their history, spread by such great individuals as Norman Finkelstein. It may not seem like such a big deal, but this is just one more example of Rosenberg helping to reinforce negative stereotypes about Jews, on all sorts of social media.
