Seriously MSNBC?! Guest Opines That Middle East Didn’t Become Anti-Semitic Until America Sided with Jews

In a pretty remarkable sleight of logic, MSNBC contributor Hillary Mann Leverett amazingly used the existence of Jewish kosher restaurants in Iran as an intellectual trampoline to catapult herself, the 3 other contributors, and their ten viewers into an amazing conclusion – the Middle East never had a history of anti-Semitism until America sided with Israel in 1967.

No seriously, she said this. Watch:

She continues to explain that really it was never as bad European anti-Semitism, which was racial in nature. I have to believe that she has the Progressive definition of “racist” – only white people can be racist. And of course she ignores the theological bigotry against Jews and Christians that finds its source in the Koran. For some reason all of this escapes Leverett – almost as if she’s just trying to blame whitey and America by denying key historical facts.

  1. That’s weapon grade stupidity right there.

  3. History is not her field, it seems. Nor has she read the core texts of Mohammedanism – which explicitly expound vile hatred of Jews. Islam has been anti-Semitic from the beginning in the mind of Mohammed.

  4. Not to mention anti-Christian to boot!

  5. That is one of the best lines ever, I’m stealing it.
