Skip to comments.NYT Maureen Dowd Uses Anti-Semitic Stereotypes In Romney Hit Piece, Obama Campaign Responds
Posted on 09/17/2012 2:24:25 PM PDT by NYer
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 Dowds latest column, Neocons Slither Back, she describes Ryans senior advisor as snake-like. Dowd also describes Senor as the puppet master behind Ryans supposed lurch towards a neoconservative foreign policy critique of President Barack Obama. This, too, is a trope used for centuries to villainize Jews.
Commentary Magazines Jonathan Tobin savaged Dowds column as creepy and says that this episode should not be swept under the rug:
“Dowds 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:
She’s showing her age.........Getting all wrinkly and saggy under the chins.............
No husband, no children. A bitter old woman lashing out at all around her.
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.

Rules. I clicked in for the proper observation of the rules....
Laz is blind? Who knew?
“Getting all wrinkly and saggy under the chins.............”
Drinking a gallon of Kool-Aid every day does that.
The Fed doesn’t print that much money, even under Bernanke.
Internalized anger makes one ugly, Miss Dowd.
Well, Michael Douglas, the guy who dumped her, is half Jewish. That half explains it...
The left-wing of this country is only a half step away from declaring a fifth reich
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!
