Sen. Bernie Sanders (D, Vermont) meets with some of his Jew-hating constituents.

You know, we hear a lot of guff from the American Left about how insular rural areas of Red States can be.  But I gotta tell you: speaking as a transplanted Northeasterner, listen to some of those progressives in Vermont and it’s like you’re in a time warp back to 1830 and the Know-Nothing Party.

This is from a recent town hall in Cabot, VT: basically, Sen. Bernie Sanders (Commie*, Vermont) had to stand at a podium and listen to a heck of a lot of angry Vermonter anti-Semites scream about Israel, to the point where he started screaming back about halfway through. Amazingly, from the aforementioned anti-Semites’ right. Heck of a thing when that guy’s the least vile person talking.

As you might guess from that, I have no sympathy for Bernie Sanders, mind you – these are his people, after all; he wants their votes, terrifyingly – but I have even less sympathy for people who scream ‘F*ck Israel,’ and who claim that Hamas is a service organization. And when I say I have no sympathy for either Sanders or his critics, I mean it: it is highly irresponsible for the Senator to pretend that Israel is somehow magically required to ignore their own security needs when it comes to foreign affairs.  And If the Palestinians want peace, then they should start by shooting the people using them as human shields.

One last point, to the Jew-hating progressive who was apparently shocked to hear the statement that Hamas calls for the death of Israel: it’s their damned theme song, you fool.  And, yes, I mean that in the theological sense.

PS: The person who passed this along to me noted that this is why he moved from Vermont. Something about wanting to raise his kids in a state that doesn’t reflexively align with terrorists who are known to use children as human shields. Can’t say that I blame him much for that.

    Must Read: Why Muslims Must Hate Jews

    Old article, but still relevant nevertheless.

    I’m still not sure why we haven’t let them secede to join Canada or go it on their own. It’s not like we can’t get maple syrup from upstate New York.

    As I said elsewhere today, I’m amazed at the number of people who get upset over: 1) Jews defending themselves, and 2) other people who get concerned about Jew-hatred.

    I’m still perplexed as all get-out as to where all this is coming from.
    About the only new variables that I can identify are:
    Israel actually tried the “land for peace” deal, and it worked even less well than most of us cynics said it would.
    The American people are more aware of how evil Israel’s enemies are.
    .
    And yet I’m seeing levels of hate directed at Israel that are nothing short of pathological.
    I don’t get it. Where the frack is all this insanity coming from?

      Do you think that civilized society has let the ramblings of the left go unchecked for too long??
