BREAKING SCANDAL: Obama Campaign Approved “Israel Lobby” Terminology

…possibly as code for “Jewish Lobby”
by Bill Levinson

A My.BarackObama.com user re-posted the following E-mail he received from a site administrator or moderator, who is therefore an official representative of Barack Obama’s campaign. Emily is obviously counseling EMK to use “Israel Lobby” (the title of Walt and Mearsheimer’s infamous book) as code for “Jewish Lobby.”

    Hi [EMK],

    Thank you so much for your involvement in the My.BarackObama online community. Your voice is valued here; however, we were forced to remove your recent blog post that referred to the “Jewish lobby.” Please use the more specific and accurate term “Israel lobby.” We appreciate your understanding and hope that you continue to be active in our online community.

Obama campaign approves use of “Israel Lobby”

Emily is an administrator or moderator for Obama for America, and she therefore represents the campaign itself. We know this because we received the following E-mails from her within the space of five minutes when we posted referenced (with page numbers) excerpts from Obama’s “Dreams From My Father” and Michelle Obama’s thesis at my.barackobama.com.

    Hi,
    Thank you so much for your involvement in the My.BarackObama.com online community. Your voice is valued here; however, your recent comments on the HQ Blog were disrespectful to our other users and detract from a welcoming community where all people can engage in positive discourse.

    This is your first and only warning. Unfortunately, if you choose to disregard this warning your account will be deactivated resulting in a complete termination of your My.BarackObama account, points, blogs, and other past activities on the site. I encourage you to review our Terms of Service: http://origin.barackobama.com/terms/

    Thanks for your understanding and cooperation in maintaining a respectful dialogue on our website.

    Hello,
    Thank you for your involvement on My.BarackObama and the countless hours you have dedicated to this campaign. Unfortunately, we were forced to deactivate your account after you abused our blog tool. We regret having had to resort to this action.

    Thank you for your understanding.

This was of course the equivalent of the bum’s rush, with Emily fabricating an accusation; note that she does not cite the “disrespectful” speech or the specific rule it violated–perhaps because she does not want to put the campaign on record as censoring dignified and respectful criticisms of Obama. It is enough, however, to establish beyond any doubt that the Obama campaign exercises editorial control over this site, thus negating the disclaimer, “Content on blogs in My.BarackObama represents the opinions of community members and in no way should be interpreted as endorsed or approved by the campaign.” In other words, the Obama campaign is 100 percent responsible for toleration and sanction of entries like “The kike filth are trying to steal this election from us.” Now this official campaign staffer’s E-mail to EMK has just put the campaign on record as approving use of the phrase”Israel Lobby,” possibly as politically correct code for “Jewish Lobby.”

  1. Anti-Semitism usually comes from the Left, look at what Stalin did to the Jews is Soviet Russia, and Hitler was not a member of the Right, remember the full name of the Nazi party was the National SOCIALIST Party. So really, this attempt to use PC words to disguise their anti-Semitism is not shocking.

  2. Well, we know John McCain is not anti-Semitic since Eric Cantor, the Jewish Republican congressman from Virginia is being vetted as a VP choice. Whereas Obama hung out with Jeremiah Wright a notorious anti-Semite.

  3. “Anti-Zionist” = “Anti-Jewish”, and
    “Anti-American” = “Anti-Christian”,
    like it or not. Our enemies know very well, what these things mean. It’s only the Christians and Jews, it seems, that are confused.

  4. Oat speak for yourself and other Christians only some Jews are confused others have good 20/20

  5. Speak for yourself Bland!

    Anti-God of Israel = Anti-God Of Israel’s Law
    Anti-God of Israel = Anti-God of Israel’s Land
    Anti-Jesus = Anti-God of Israel (That will just go right above your head! Sorry!]
    Anti-Christian = Anti-God of Israel too!
    Anti-Messiah = Anti-Christian and Anti-Jewish as both believe in the Coming of Israel’s Messiah.

    Anti-American? Anti-Jewish? No, it’s basically anti-Israel and anti-Jesus that’s the problem – it’s the people who oppose God’s Will who are in confusion!

    I’m just glad that there are no boundaries in God’s Kingdom!
