HuffPost Publishes Anti-Semitism, Readership Agrees

For some reason known only to them, the Huffington Post decided to publish (and I'm not exaggerating) "The Top Ten Most Anti-Semitic Reactions to Ryan Braun's Suspension on Twitter," referring to a baseball player with a Jewish father who was caught using steroids. The tweets were replicated in all their ugly glory, which I thought was informative enough given the Huffington Post's love/hate relationship with anti-Semitism. Although the vast majority of the readership had the reaction you would expect to the stories, trolls were given free reign to defend it:

This is hardly new for the Huffington Post, however.

  1. What do you mean for "some reason"? The reason is HuffPo is an antisemitic newspaper. It's simply a matter of when they decide to let the veil drop a little more each time. HuffPo will be printing overty and obvious holocaust denial as well as calls to exterminate Jews soone than later. Everyone knows that. Why is anyone shocked and why is anyone playing the "if only the executives there knew...." game. Of course they do, this is editorial policy. They can't do it all at once or they will lose support from MSNBC, CNN, The Atlantics, Politico, Raw Story, DKos, TPM and of course the White House. This way when they do it a little at a time all those supporters can continue to support them.

    Evil is Evil, that is its nature.


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.
