The Set-Up - Right-Wingers Leave Comments, Then Complain About Them - Updated

-- by Dave Johnson

Here is an opportunity to watch a strategic narrative develop in real-time. Remember the other day when the Republican National Committee had a picture of Howard Dean with a Hitler mustache? Maybe that was a tip-off of something coming. The Republicans are trying to make the public think that liberals hate Jews.

A few days ago several bloggers noticed a flurry of anti-Semitic comments suddenly showing up at their blogs. It was obvious that the next step would be widespread circulation of right-wing stories about those anti-Semitic liberals...

And, right on schedue: HATEFUL 'MOVE' VS. JOE By MAGGIE HABERMAN - New York Post Online Edition: News,

A string of anti-Semitic rants about Sen. Joe Lieberman have popped up on the liberal MoveOn.org's open forum Web site, drawing criticism from the Anti-Defamation League.
And of course, the chorus chimes in, here, here, here, here, here, here, and I'll add as they show up...

More here, here, here, here, here and here.

RedState: Ned, Junior, and their hate-filled endorsement,

The type of hatred evinced by MoveOn.org and by George Soros is dangerous.

Free Republic, MoveOn.org: Hot-bed for Anti-Semitism

OK, the larger echo chamber is kicking in now:

FrontPage: Moving On to Anti-Semitism

Update - Will we see this in the right-wing media? ADL Welcomes MoveOn.org's Responsiveness in Removing Anti-Semitic Messages,

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) welcomed the responsiveness of MoveOn.org Political Action in removing anti-Semitic messages that had been posted on the Action Forum on their Web site.

In response to a letter of concern, Eli Pariser, Executive Director of MoveOn Political Action, has been in direct contact with ADL. He indicated that MoveOn.org found the comments abhorrent and had them removed.

ADL is pleased with Mr. Pariser's responsiveness to our concerns and believes the matter has been resolved satisfactorily.

This would be hilarious if it weren't so sad. But my dears, the liberals ARE Jews! Or at least most of the Jews i know are liberals -- not just in NYC, either.

Liberals subconsciously hate themselves and all they stand for, from their own religion to their heritage to their nation.

And the Bull Moose full of shit. Unbelievable. "For months, the Moose has observed that if you seek anti-Semitic and anti-Israel filth on the internet, look to the left side." Those right-wing neo-nazi conservatives are never anti-semitic, now are they? Or even those less malicious right-wing blow-hards who love Mel Gibson, eh?
