Anti-Semitic Stalinist Eunuchs

Whatever horrifying condition deprived Pajama Boy of his genitals, I suppose we must be thankful he can’t pass it along to future generations. But the leftism represented by this genderless icon has been on full display recently — and it’s as awful to look upon as the poor, sad mutilated soul in the picture above.

Take for instance, the American Studies Association‘s recent academic boycott of greedy, big-nosed Jews. Okay, they didn’t put it that way exactly — the modern leftist anti-semite doesn’t say “Jew,” he says “Israel,” or “Zionist.” But anti-semitism is what it is both pure and simple. Whatever violation of human rights you can contrive to find in Israeli security measures, they are nothing compared to the day-to-day oppression of women (half the population, remember), non-Muslims and other humans in the surrounding Muslim countries. So why not boycott them as well?

ASA spokesman Reinhard Heydrich (Obergruppenfuhrer retired) explained the scholars’ reasoning.

If there is one thing we learned from Adolf Hitler’s war against the Jews it is that we must not demonize the other. And if there is one thing we learned from Edward Said’s book Orientalism it is that the other is Muslim. And Muslims don’t like Jews. Therefore we must wage war against the Jews.

When it was pointed out to Heydrich that Muslims are at war with every other religion and secularism as well and that it is therefore unfair to single out the Jews, Heydrich explained, “But they’re Jews!”

And yes, I made those quotes up…  but only because I know it’s difficult for these academics to appear in public while wearing pajamas, and having no genitals.

Now, while the Jews are the most persecuted people in human history, they are not at this very moment the most persecuted religious group on earth. That would be Christians. Luckily, however, gender-deprived Pajama Boy leftists have not left this persecution unattended.

There are all sorts of opinions an honest person of good will might have about homosexuality. Mine are liberal — and, believe me, I’ve taken my full complement of crap about them from commenters, emailers and friends (who at least pick up the drinks tab now and then). But there is only one true opinion to have about A&E’s suspension of Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson: it is a sin, somewhere between adultery and bestiality. So it’s like cheating on your spouse with a sheep.

Robertson gave an interview to GQ in which, in his inimitable rough-spoken way, he grouped homosexual activity with the other sins — while also pointing out, as has been under-reported, that we must all repent and love one another going forward. For this, A&E knocked him off what is one of the most popular cable shows ever. They should be boycotted for this. It is, as openly lesbian intellectual Camille Paglia put it succinctly, “punitive PC, utterly fascist, utterly Stalinist.” Other decent gays have concurred, God bless them.

But the rest of you liberals…  listen, I know you.  I know a lot of you are against the kind of oppressive and bigoted activity that is becoming more and more emblematic of leftist thought and action. But there comes a point where if you’re not against them, you’re for them.

Take a look in the mirror, liberals. Are you beginning to see Pajama Boy in there? Take it as a warning. Side with the left long enough, and your genitals fall off.  As well they should.
