"Book" Section Renews My Faith in HuffPosters

The Huffington Post in its usual manner decided to mine for clicks in another section of the Huffington Post, the "Books" section, when they decided to cover Alice Walker's decision not to allow a Hebrew translation of her book "The Color Purple." However, they probably got a big surprise when the vast majority of the Huffington Posters there rejected Ms. Walker's decisions and recognized boycotting for what it was: bigotry against Israelis and Jewish people. Despite the presence of the usual Palsbara crowd, most of the neutral people there thought Walker was totally out to lunch. Let me demonstrate this using the top favorited comments:

It's amazing what happens when the radical left isn't dominating a conversation, don't you think?


  1. While I loved Haroldpom's post and he certainly deserved all the "favorites" that he got, let's give credit where credit is due.

    Jonathan S. Tobin, in "Commentary Magazine".
    A great piece, and a great read.

  2. Faith in humanity(and in some of the HP crowd): RESTORED!

  3. The anti-Semitic Toni Morrison pulled this same crap with her books, and then oh, so graciously permitted them to be translated when Israel made concessions which she felt deemed the Israelis worthy. A pox on both their houses.

    When my kids were in high school I insisted that they be opted out of reading Morrison's books, and I wouldn't have them brought into my house. Same as with Mein Kampf.


Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
