First They Came For Gregg Easterbrook’s Non-Job, In An Anti-Semitic Purge of Protestants, And I Said Nothing

[ 82 ] January 29, 2013 |

Ah, the Washington Free Beacon: the journal for people who think that the Daily Tucker needs to dumb it down a few shades.

I also note that the story talks about the Beauchamp non-scandal as if it was a real thing.

    Easterbrook singlehandedly refutes the “Jews are educated” stereotype.

  2. John Protevi says:

    A nice comment on the site:

    Chait’s work here has failed to diminish my opinion of the Washington Free Beacon.

    Any mention of Juicebox Mafioso?

    Semi-related lulzes:

    Breitbart News will be launching a new feature/vertical on our website called “The Conversation.” Look for it in the navigation bar.

    The Conversation will be a place where our readers can watch an ongoing dialogue amongst a select group of thought leaders that includes Ace of Spades, Iowahawk, David Webb, Javier Manjarres of Shark Tank, DocZero, Nice Deb, Jerome Hudson, Lisa De Pasquale, William A. Jacobson of Legal Insurrection, and Adam Baldwin, along with John Nolte, Ben Shapiro, Larry O’Connor, Sonnie Johnson, Liberty Chick, Jon David Kahn, as well as other writers and contributors from Breitbart News.

    And glancing at the table of comments, I see that Cohn, Rosin, and Rosen escaped the purge, probably by pretending to be Christian.

      Ah, okay, I actually read the piece, which tries to make the point that it’s pro-Israel stance is softening. Yeah The mag was so much better when it was headed by a rabid anti-Arab bigot.

    Maybe if Sarah “The Whore of Babblin’-on” Palin can learn to type-out her word-spews, she can find a home at the DC Fry Bacon.

    Bill “WRONG!!!” Kristol got exactly the son-in-law he so richly deserves.

    • Malaclypse says:

      There are many ways one can criticize the Snowbilly Grifter without stooping to “whore.”

      • c u n d gulag says:

        Sorry about that – I was punnin’, and I guess it wasn’t funnin’ that context.

        But she does babble-on, doesn’t she?
        And getting paid a million dollars a year for it, from FOX. At least for awhile.

        So, maybe I should call her a word-worker, instead. ;-)

        Point taken, though, Mal.

        I always liked Kondike Barbie, myself.

  7. CJColucci says:

    What, exactly, would their objection to purging Jews be if it were happening?

  8. Incontinentia Buttocks says:

    Three generations of Kristol-family punditry are enough!

  9. rea says:

    Ah, the Beauchamp scandal–big rightwingnut victory at the time, but the unfortunate sequel where all of their witnesses to the good behavior of our troops went to prison for first degree murder means that nowdays they have to be discrete in referring to it. And so it is here, where the name “Beauchamp” is not mentioned (someone might google it!), but the statement is made, “reinstalled former editor Franklin Foer, who had left after presiding over a scandal surrounding a series of fabricated reports from Iraq.”

  10. Kurzleg says:

    The Washington Free Beacon is a smear sheet founded by Matthew Continetti, occasional contributor to the Weekly Standard and son-in-law of Weekly Standard editor William Kristol.

    How did I not see this coming? The wingers may not be good at much, but nobody beats them at nepotism.

  11. socraticsilence says:

    One assumes they think Easterbrooks was a camouflage- after all its hard to accuse one of anti-semitism when part of one’s evidence is the firing of a man accused of the same (on more valid ground admittedly).

    • actor212 says:

      Or they’re too stupid to go search Wiki.

      Altho, to be fair, he attends a half-Christian, half-Jewish Episcopalian….yes, you read that correctly…church.

      • Warren Terra says:

        How does that even work? Is this the Jews Sort-Of For Jesus?

        • Pestilence says:

          Well no, Episcopalian = Anglican, right? So it’s more Jews for sort-of-atheism

          • Warren Terra says:

            I’m an Atheist Jew; I know a lot of Atheist Jews. Part of growing up and still identifying yourself as Jewish in a Christian country is not accepting Jesus as divine. Not even as being the specific notion of the divine you’re rejecting. It’s that old joke about fighting over exactly what it is you don’t believe in.

            Also: I thought the line on Anglicans was that they venerated jumble sales and flower arranging – not that they worshiped nothing.

      • Manta says:

        Link, or we will think you are making shit up.

      • Woodrowfan says:

        Schmeks and Gloks??

  12. Roger Ailes says:

    Don’t overlook the Free Beacon’s reference to “wealthy socialite Chris Hughes, who is best known for sharing a room with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg at Harvard University.”

    Or, as they say on the right, “fag.”

  13. Kal says:

    If this is anti-semitic, how would the Free Beacon describe my preferred policy of firing *everyone* who works at TNR?
