New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof is facing criticism after retweeting a controversial message that referred to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the National Rifle Association as the 2 most pig like lobbies in America.
Longtime Israel critic M.J. Rosenberg, who was dumped by the liberal Media Matters for America for his use of borderline anti-Semitic language, authored the controversial tweet Wednesday afternoon. It called to mind recently unearthed statements by Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi that referred to Jews as pigs.
OBAMA told the 2 most pig like lobbies, AIPAC & NRA, to drop dead in same month. Next: Chamber of Commerce, Rosenberg wrote.
The missive was then retweeted by Kristof and a slew of others.
Rosenberg regularly engages in anti-Israel activism on Twitter and has repeatedly used the term Israel firster, a phrase with origins in the white supremacist movement that many consider anti-Semitic.

Looks like Kristoff is having a "Dr. Strangelove" moment...
Again, I want to bring everyone’s attention to the pretentious phonyness of Kristof’s statement: how is he qualified to assess the “accent” that Zero has in a language that Kristof doesn’t speak?
And that I’m sure that Zero doesn’t speak either.
“Here on our church in Wittenberg a sow is sculpted in stone. Young pigs and Jews lie suckling under her. Behind the sow a rabbi is bent over the sow, lifting up her right leg, holding her tail high and looking intensely under her tail and into her Talmud, as though he were reading something acute or extraordinary, which is certainly where they get their Shemhamphoras” - Martin Luther
