Politico deleted anti-Semitic Tweet (is that in their playbook?)

Few blogs are as unrelentingly anti-religious as Politico.  In New Jersey, the blog has pursued an agenda clearly at odds with traditional religious beliefs, be they Judeo-Christian or Islamic.  Bloggers like Matt Friedman appear to think that their worldview – fashionable, secular, and centered on sexuality – is the measurement by which everyone else’s religious views are to be judged.  Friedman openly mocks what he doesn’t want to understand.  There are the ignorant and then there are the invincibly ignorant.  He is the latter.

But now the entire Politico enterprise is being called into question, and its anti-religious bias is even making it onto the pages of the benign Wikipedia…

In April 2017, Politico magazine published a wild conspiracy-theory article that tried to link President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin with a Jewish outreach organization Chabad-Lubavitch.  The article was  widely condemned.  Jonathan Greenblatt, the head of the Anti-Defamation League said Politico was conjuring up anti-Semitic myths about Jews. 

And Wikipedia details Politico’s own anti-Semitic Twitter scandal:

Politico was accused again of anti-Semitism, when an article depicting imagery of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders next to money trees, was published. Sanders being the only Jewish presidential nominee was targeted for the amount of wealth he accumulated over his entire life time [60] Politico staff writer Michael Kruse wrote the article detailing the senator’s wealth, writing that Sanders “might still be cheap,” according to one of the senator’s friends, “but he’s sure not poor.” To share the story Politico’s official Twitter account used the quote, Sanders “might still be cheap, but he’s sure not poor,” managing to combine two anti-Semitic tropes (Jews are cheap; Jews are rich). The tweet was later deleted. [61]

Hypocrisy, thy name is POLITICO.  Before calling on others to resign over a re-tweet (as opposed to full length, original content, articles), maybe the staff at Politico should lead by example and cut-off their own heads first?  Just a thought.
