A Smell Wafts Through The Blogosphere

It's Ezra Levant, and he's calling Irwin Cotler a "porch Jew", 1st on twitter, and then on his blog. Now, Jason Cherniak thinks Kotler is being compared to a lazy black slave that gets on by pleasing his white master (the most obvious definition of the term, given its historical antecedents); Levant is employing ethnic slurs, in other words. And Cherniak's right. Ezra is 1) comparing Kotler to black slaves that might have chosen to serve their white masters as domestics rather than risk a more difficult life in the fields, and 2) implying by analogy with the origonal term that Kotler is not Jewish enough. He makes his commitment to 1) quite clear:

I used the phrase "porch Jew", an anology to the dichotomy between field slaves and house slaves. Cherniak read that as code for a racist anti-black epithet ("p0rch m0nkey") that I have never used in my life.

[...]

Sort of like Uncle Tom, really -- they liked being porch slaves a lot better than being field slaves, so why cause a fuss?

But another thing is, "porch monkey"--the term Cherniak thinks (correctly) that Ezra is riffing on-- is really just a nicer term for the more common "porch nigger", and when you realize that you realize what a dark ugly place Ezra's mind really is. I'm with WK here. Why are the Tories treating this guy as a legitimate spokesperson? Why does the MSM even deal with him? He should be Shaidled off the airwaves.

EL is a pig, plain and simple.

Levant has libeled others in the mainstream Jewish community in vile ways. He even once referred to CJC Executive Director Bernie Farber (a son of Holocaust survivors) as a Nazi Bookburner. That anyone pays any attention to him is shameful

And lets not forget that Levant has also libeled Richard Warman, Warren Kinsella, Leo Adler,Judy Shapiro from the Calgary office of the cjc,the head of the CHRC and two of its lawyers as well as one or more of its staff...hell the list is virtually endless.

Frankly I believe he is mentally ill.

The troubling thing is while Levant alternately compares Jews he disagrees with to Nazis or Black slaves, he has a lot for neo-nazis like Paul Fromm, Doug Christie and Marc Lemire - all the while denying that there is any such thing as a neo-nazi in Canada. (Reminiscent of how J. Edgar Hoover used to deny there was a "mob" while accepting favours from them)

Question. If a Jewish member of the Liberal Party is an "Uncle Tom" or "Porch Jew" what do you call a Jew who buddies around with neo-nazis?

Why he even had the audacity to call me an "anti-Semite"! Imagine that.
