Hughes Drops Jews
Free Beacon ^ | January 28, 2013 | staff

Posted on 01/29/2013 8:40:29 AM PST by Nachum

The New Republic has quietly dropped at least five prominent Jewish writers from its masthead in a move that may signal the publication’s continued drift away from a staunchly pro-Israel standpoint.

The magazine has launched an aggressive new editorial direction under the ownership of wealthy socialite Chris Hughes, who is best known for sharing a room with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg at Harvard University.

The names of several prominent Jewish writers from both the left and right of the political spectrum were dropped from TNR’s masthead in the latest issue.

They include: Daily Beast reporter Eli Lake, longtime TNR columnist James Kirchick, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer, and onetime senior editor Lawrence Kaplan. Complicating the picture, former TNR editor Peter Beinart was also dropped from the masthead. Beinart is the publisher of Open Zion, an anti-Zionist Daily Beast blog sponsored by the New America Foundation.

Each of these writers had been well-respected longtime contributors to the magazine and frequently wrote about Israel and the Middle East.

If I’m scared, THEY better be because my scare isn’t half as much as it is angry. And angry will overcome scare in a heartbeat.

When Hitler Dehumanize the Jewish people - they killed 6 million jews - However, there were 12 million that were put to death. What do you think the other 6 million were - They were those who opposed Hitler - Christians, Political enemies, The weak, those with mental illness, and anyone who they felt would reduce the Gene Pool.

Leading up to the false peace and eventual worldwide military assault on Israel. The world hates Israel and will gladly receive the Antichrist.

Obviously, it is NOT about Zionism, and IS about being Jewish.

And being that Hughes is an open homosexual, it doesn't look good for Zuckerburg being his roomie at one time.

“First a gun grab, now a purge of the Jews.”

Yep, and “peace in our time” and a charismatic leader followed by legions of lemmings.

Gee, this all sounds eerily familiar /scratches head

A choice, yes.

Contagious? No. Unless you include all of the propaganda being pushed by homosexual activists, the MSM (Mr. Hughes included), Hollywood, the current presidential administration and the public school system promoting it as a wonderful lifestyle to young impressionable minds.

"Hughes Drops Jews"

Tragically, it sounds like we're watching replays of Nazi Germany or Stalanist purges in some segments of left-controlled American society. Here you have people just disappearing from the list of contributors to a highbrow left-leaning publication with no explanations considered necessary.

In fairness, being a roomate with Zuckerberg is enough to make any person an anti-semite.

Never again —— unless the situation is ever so slightly different???

Maybe it’s time to remind mainstream America that hitler murdered - gasp- gays too? If they dump the Jews, they will come after your favorite minority next...
