NYT Maureen Dowd Uses Anti-Semitic Stereotypes In Romney Hit Piece, Obama Campaign Responds
Weasel Zippers ^ | September 17, 2012

Posted on 09/17/2012 2:24:25 PM PDT by NYer

Via Mediaite:

Long-time New York Times opinion columnist Maureen Dowd is facing a significant backlash over her latest column in which she uses a number of medieval, anti-Semitic stereotypes to describe neoconservatives and, specifically, Dan Senor, a close advisor to Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan.

In Dowd’s latest column, Neocons Slither Back, she describes Ryan’s senior advisor as snake-like. Dowd also describes Senor as the “puppet master” behind Ryan’s supposed lurch towards a neoconservative foreign policy critique of President Barack Obama. This, too, is a trope used for centuries to villainize Jews.

Commentary Magazine’s Jonathan Tobin savaged Dowd’s column as “creepy” and says that this episode should not be swept under the rug:

“Dowd’s column marks yet another step down into the pit of hate-mongering that has become all too common at the Times. This is a tipping point that should alarm even the most stalwart liberal Jewish supporters of the president.”

Jeffrey Goldberg, national correspondent for The Atlantic, responded immediately to the slurs printed in the Times on the eve of the Jewish new year holiday. In Happy New Year, Puppet Masters, Goldberg goes after Dowd for her liberal use of offensive slurs to attack Ryan.

“Maureen may not know this, but she is peddling an old stereotype, that gentile leaders are dolts unable to resist the machinations and manipulations of clever and snake-like Jews,” Goldberg wrote.

Unbelievably, the Obama campaign’s “Truth Team” is pushing her column:

I wonder whether it is our duty to band together and try to raise enough money to rent someone who would FINALLY sleep with Maureen so she might stop whining!

Interesting. Especially seeing as how those ‘puppetmasters’ she refers to are exactly the ones who pull the strings on our empty monkey suit of a President, his party, and his fawning media — including her own employer. Once again, a liberal perfects the art of projection.

If we can raise that much money, we should use it to pay off the National Debt.

First line of her screed: "PAUL RYAN has not sautéed in foreign policy in his years on Capitol Hill."

My dictionary defines sauteed as fried quickly in a little oil or fat.

The SLIMES USED TO have copy editors - and columnists with a basic command of English.

If it was up to me, Maureen Dowd wouldn't have a chinaman's chance... of keeping her job--

Wait a minute, Bend. Isn't that 'chinaman's chance'... copyrighted?

While I did copyright 'chinaman's chance' back in the 1930s as the name of a Shanghai brewed rice beer, I... gave Bender permission to use it.

Hop Sing... know that beer--

It knock you... on your ass!

The clueless desert viceroys summarily disbanded the Iraqi army, forced de-Baathification, stood frozen in denial as thugs looted ministries and museums.

It's a shame the ability to turn a phrase is wasted by Ms Dowd. She's actually a talented wordsmith.

In any case, in her line above about the Bush mistake of ridding the region of the power group of Saddam-era Iraq, she contradicts the Obama administration's decision to rid the region of Mubarak and Ghaddaffi and their legions.

So, Ms Dowd, are you for leaving the power groups in place or are you against it? For it in Iraq, a mistake by Bush, but against it in Eqypt/Libya, because we can't acknowledge a mistake by Obama?

If Obama was right then Bush was right. If Bush wrong then Obama wrong.

This is the point at which sophists get down in the weeds and attempt to show through minutia that they really can have it both ways.

I would challenge her to make a LONG list of Obama’s experience in foreign policy before 2007.

It wouldn’t take a very big piece of paper.
