Even for the Huffington Post, blogger Linda Milazzo is well known for...let's call them "emotional outbursts." She made such a big impression that we gave her her own tag and feel free to peruse some of her history (including lies about Israel and accusations of dual loyalty) if you are so curious. But the subject of the day is a little more direct:
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach wrote an article about a Canadian TV host who pulled a Rick Sanchez and declared that Jews influenced the media to make Christians look bad, a classically anti-Semitic trope. For some reason, this really really pissed off Ms. Milazzo and she launched a hateful attack on the Rabbi complete with insults and off topic screeching about Israel. As always click to zoom in:
Be sure to note the number of favorites and how long it has been allowed to remain. Even on a website populated by the likes of MJ Rosenberg and Sharmine Narwani, this is the most insulting comment I have ever seen made toward a Huffington Post blogger (let alone by another blogger). The article wasn't about Israel, and although some Huffington Posters tried to stay in denial, he had a pretty clear case for writing his article. Ms. Milazzo just saw an opportunity to act like an attack dog, and took it.
If someone would like to show me another post like this but directed at a blogger who isn't a Jew or pro-Israel, please put it forward. I'd love to see it.
Update: While we're on the subject, here's a tweet she sent us from earlier:
It's nice to know that some things don't change.
