Who are the new Nazis? Clearly, the new Nazi Party has an adamant believer in a Palestinian woman from Ft. Lauderdale who believes that the Jewish people should be sent “back to the oven.” She was referring to the method in which the Nazis gassed the European Jews back during the 30′s and 40′s before cremating the remains in an oven.
This woman was part of a protest organized by the ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) Coalition. But, the ANSWER leader of the Ft. Lauderdale protest flatly refused to condemn the anti-Semitic statements made by his followers.
From Fox News:
|Most of the chants were run-of-the-mill; men and women waving Palestinian flags called Israel’s invasion of Gaza a “crime,” while the pro-Israel group carried signs calling the Hamas-run territory a “terror state.”
But as the protest continued and crowds grew, one woman in a hijab began to shout curses and slurs that shocked Jewish activists in the city, which has a sizable Jewish population.
“Go back to the oven,” she shouted, calling for the counter-protesters to die in the manner that the Nazis used to exterminate Jews during the Holocaust.
“You need a big oven, that’s what you need,” she yelled.
The ANSWER leader of this protest was one Emmanuel Lopez who gave us a look at his own anti-Semitism by not condemning the offensive outburst.
|The protest organizers, asked to comment on the woman’s overt call for Jewish extermination, said she was “insensitive” but refused to condemn her statement.
Perhaps because Emmanuel Lopez agrees with her belief that the Jews should be exterminated? Lopez himself admitted that anti-Semitism was a problem in the ranks of ANSWER. Why would such a problem exist if the leaders of ANSWER were serious about ending violence and racism?
|Lopez, a state coordinator for ANSWER, admitted there is a problem with anti-Semitism within his organization’s ranks. But then he went on to call the supporters of Israel across the street “barbaric, racist” Zionist terrorists.
“Zionism in general is a barbaric, racist movement that really is the cause of the situation in the entire Middle East,” Lopez said.
The unidentified woman, who protest organizers said was a Muslim, wasn’t the only protester who raised hackles that day. Other demonstrators held signs that said “Nuke Israel,” …
Fascism is alive and well and it lives over on the left side of the political spectrum.
