The morning daily equivalent of Sobibor

Powerline blog to the rescue! Heyward and Assrocket break down the door of the New York Times and wrest pitiable Jews from their evil clutches. A grateful commenter notes:

What was it they used to say about the Times? That it was a newspaper owned by the Jews, run by the Catholics to fool the Protestants?

This should be good.

NY Times Launches Its Jew-Tracker

The New York Times today offers up a table examining the Democratic (but not Republican) Senators and House members opposed to Obama’s Iran agreement, noting whether they are Jewish and the proportion of Jewish constituents in their state or district. Like this:

To be accurate, that NYT graphic was under the “Senate” part of the article. You can see the “10% of all Sens.” part there at the top. So it wasn’t entirely about “the Democratic (but not Republican) Senators and House members opposed to Obama’s Iran agreement.” Anyway gas chambers and rail cars and of course, yes, do go on.

Nice that they use yellow highlight for this feature. Only thing missing is the Star of David in place of an asterisk.

JOHN adds: Wow. This is…unbelievable.

UPDATE by JOHN: The Times must have caught a lot of heat, because they have revised their chart to delete the “Jew” column, although the Jewish population percentage is still there…

These people have really lost it.

You get the feeling that conservatives feel a need to defend the chosen people, you know? And when the liberal New York Times starts singling out their own Democrats for criticism you can be sure that right-wingers will point out it’s a form of Jew-hate.

…It’s useful information about how Jewish Americans, an important Dem plantation group, may be responding to being shafted like this.

Iran must own stock in the Times. They are diffinately pulling some strings there. Boy, talk about anti-Semitism.

But of course, there’d be no point in the New York Times going after the Senate Republicans who opposed the deal. Those people are rock solid and pro-Israel, and you could never intimidate any of them, Arthur Jew-Tracker. And, also, they don’t exist. Yes there’s that fact, there are no Republican Jews in the Senate. None. Heyward and Assrocket didn’t mention that.

What about that other chamber? Couldn’t the Times have Jew-tracked all the Republicans in the House of Representatives? Do you mean…Lee Zeldin? The New Yorker who just joined last year? I suppose they could have made a graph out of only Lee, but that sure would have looked funny.

I find it puzzling the way Powerline began this defense of “the Democratic (but not Republican) Senators and House members.” They could just as easily have written about “the twenty-eight members of Congress (not named Lee Zeldin).” It’s also unfortunate that they didn’t get into some discussion about why the Republican caucus looks like a radioactive monkeymouse to many Jewish people, politicians included. Because that would have been enlightening.
