A Case Study in How the Left-Wing Media Smears the Right as ‘Nazis’
-By Warner Todd Huston
On nearly a daily basis the left-wing media breaks into its charge that conservatives are Jew-hating Nazis and today there was a perfect example of how they do it.
The first story came from the left-wing Israeli newspaper Haaretz which wrote a piece claiming that the internal White House fight between Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner and White House strategist Steve Bannon was stirring anti-Semitism.
Granted in this case Haaretz is a foreign newspaper, but what it wrote is no different than what the left-wing media in the U.S. foists on Americans as “news.”
In any case, the attempt to label Steve Bannon a Jew hater is specious right off the top. There is not any proof at all from anyone who has ever dealt with Bannon that the presidential adviser is an anti-Semite.
Of course, writer Taly Krupkin didn’t directly say that Bannon is an anti-Semite. Instead Krupkin said that Bannon is causing anti-Semitism in others because he is supposedly facing down Trump’s Jewish son-in-law.
“It only took a few hours after the reprisal attack for anti-Semitism to raise its ugly head again, as disappointed Trump supporters protested what they saw as a betrayal of the ‘America First’ agenda, and hinted at a “globalism” conspiracy in the White House,” Krupkin wrote.
The piece then went on to point to the anti-Semitic comments of people that have no connection to Steve Bannon, but smears Bannon with it all, anyway.
So, what we have here is guilt by innuendo. The whole article is fake news smearing Bannon as anti-Semitic by a degree of separation despite its complete lack of any proof that Bannon hates Jews.
But if that wasn’t bad enough, worse was the reaction to Krupkin’s story by other liberals.
Take the lie spouted by Kenneth Roth, Executive Director of the extremist, let-wing group Human Rights Watch, who took to Twitter to say, “Trump Chief Ideologue Bannon reportedly now using anti-Semitism to combat Trump’s son-in-law and daughter advisers.” Roth then linked to the Haaretz article as if it proved his point.

This was an outright lie. Indeed, even the Haarttz piece Roth linked to didn’t say Bannon himself was “using anti-Semitism” to “combat” Kushner. Yet here is liar Roth claiming that this is what the Haaretz article said.
And this, dear reader, is how the left uses innuendo and then extrapolates that into lies all in order to smear conservatives with the calumny of anti-Semitism. One “reporter” makes up a story out of whole cloth then the next misstates what the first said in order to make it more damning. Then their fans spout their fake news like it is real.
That’s how the left-wing media works, folks.
