The Huffington Post gave double coverage to the toothless, meaningless Senate resolution that America would assist Israel in the event that they are forced to attack Iran (the first being a heavily spun MJ Rosenberg article which I will get to in a minute). For a change, the headline actually is more or less on point:
So now it's time for everyone's favorite game: Who Said It? The Huffington Post covered this story, and so did the notorious right-wing white supremacist hate site Stormfront. Can you figure out which website's readership produced the following comments?
A. "So the moderate 'Israel must calm down' stance Obama took during the election year and for a few months after it has warn off and now he's back to bending over once again for Israel? Is that about the sum of it?"
B. "Two laws in the world one for Jews and one for everyone else."
C. "Why are my tax dollars funding a terrorist organization. Let the jews of the world fund their own terrorism."
D. "The U.S. Congress will continue ensuring that Israel takes priority over American citizens. The money will continue to be siphoned from American taxpayers and given to Israel. Israel is the home of chosen race, don't you know?"
E. "How can the U.S. condemn terrorism and support the terrorist state of Israel at the same time?"
F. "What a shocker... Politicians selling out our troops and weapons to the Jewish lobby..."
G. "America IS ATTACKED BECAUSE OF ISRAELS CONTROL OF THE AMERICAN GOVERMENT... YOU KNOW IT AND SO DOSE THE REST OF THE WORLD..."
H. "I'm hoping that it's already too late for the American/British/Israeli Axis to play this war game, but you can't count on rational behavior from these Criminal Warmongers."
Answers and some screengrabs are below the fold.
