The Next Hate Fest: CUNY Mockery on Gay Rights

In other words, she accuses Israel of feigning concern over the rights of gay people in order to whitewash — “pinkwash” — its lack of concern for Palestinian people.......

The anti-Semite just knows that there’s something sinister at work if Jews do anything positive. The core characteristic of anti-Semitism is the certainty that everything the Jews do is wrong, and everything that’s wrong is done by the Jews. To the anti-Semite, every depression, war, social problem, plague must have been the fault of the Jews. Whenever the Jews seem to be doing good — giving to charity, helping the less fortunate, curing the sick — there must be a malevolent motive, a hidden agenda, a conspiratorial explanation beneath the surface. Today, the twisted illogic that has characterized classic anti-Semitism is directed at the Jewish state, which for the anti-Semite has become “the Jew” among nations.

So when Israel sends help to tsunami and hurricane victims, the ideological soulmates of the pinkwash brigade accuse the Jewish state of merely trying to garner positive publicity calculated to offset its mistreatment of Palestinians. When Israeli medical teams save the lives of Palestinian children, they must be up to no good.

And when news surfaced that the Israeli Army has the lowest rate of rape against enemy civilians, radical anti-Zionists argued that this was because Israeli soldiers were so racist that they didn’t find Palestinian women attractive enough to rape! Nothing the Jew or the Jew among nations does can be praised, because its purpose is always to “manipulate,” to “conceal,” to “divert attention away from” or to “distort” the evil that inheres in all Jewish actions and inactions. That is the bigoted thesis of the “pinkwashing” campaign, and it is little different from similar campaigns organized by classic brown-shirted anti-Semites....

2. Here's the NYT piece by Schulman

Israel and 'Pinkwashing'

ALAN MOTHERFUCKING DERSHOWITZ references, but does not source. Perhaps because it shows that ALAN MOTHERFUCKING DERSHOWITZ'S op-ed is complete and utter fucking bullshit.

Schulman does not claim, as ALAN MOTHERFUCKING DERSHOWITZ states, that Israel only engages in gay rights for PR efforts. Rather she argues - correctly - that Israel's position on LGBT people is used as a propaganda tool against Palestinians (and Arabs as a whole, oftentimes). She commends the gay people of Israel for having succeeded, but laments that that success is used by propagandists.

Rather than address what Schulman's actual position is, rather than rebutting words she has actually spoken, rather than referencing her NYT piece, her book on the subject, or anything else she's actually done, ALAN MOTHERFUCKING DERSHOWITZ makes up his own words and puts them in her mouth. He calls her an anti-semite, a hater, makes allusions that she's a Nazi, accuses her of the worst things possible, all while apparently counting on the notion that anyone who reads ALAN MOTHERFUCKING DERSHOWITZ willingly must be one snorted line of drain cleanser away from death and is in no condition to check references.

Also, if I've not made this clear enough, the piece is shat by ALAN MOTHERFUCKING DERSHOWITZ. Just in case someone might have missed that.

16. OK, what about this quote from you:

"One of the reasons the Gay community has made such big gains in Israel is due to their embrace of Zionism."

So, if the Gay community didn't embrace Zionism in Israel, they'd be totally fucked? Is that your argument in favor of Zionism, or what?

geeze louise but I've got to ask w.t.f. connection you're trying necessitate here. Are you out of your mind????

If Israel doesn't discriminate w.r.t. sexual orientation, or sexual identity, then Israel is on the correct track according as the universal standard of equal rights before the law for all persons regardless of race, sex, religion, sexual orientation, etc. etc. That's a GOOD thing. But for you to assert that this right is dependent on a person's embrace of Zionism is BAD.

I am thankful that the Zionist entity is the only country in the area that does not discriminate against their gay citizens.

The record of Israel's neighbors against their own gay citizens is an abomination that the world and United Nations and Canada should hold them all accountable .

Aid to Palestine should be withheld until there is equal human rights for all irrespective of ones sexual orientation .

21. I understand that you are proud of Israel re. this matter.

But that is all.
You, on the other hand, say that that gay citizens owe this equality to their acceptance of Zionism as an over-riding political ideology, and I don't agree.

I don't see the connection that you see between rights w.r.t. sex and sexual orientation and Zionism, that such rights are dependent on the peoples at issue accepting Zionism as their political philosophy.

Do you really think that every country on the planet has to be a Zionist country, that these rights be recognized? That, after all, is your argument.

In fact, they're not even considered victims unless a Western country can be blamed for their oppression.

27. Well, you certainly are outraged.

Aside from your virulent "Israel is better than those savages" message, what "more than BDS" do you expect from the world?
Do you expect the US to stop selling arms to Saudi Arabia?
To my mind that'd be one small step for humanity, but it isn't likely, is it?
Without US support many of those regimes might be more likely to fall from internal stress - and it might be more possible for a democratic opposition to be established, a secular political structure to be worked out so were the dictator to fall there'd be something there to possibly replace it aside from a religious institution. After all, democracy has happened before, e.g. Iran was on the democratic move before the US overthrew the fledgling democracy and installed a "shaw" - and the long term outcome of that US interference hasn't been too hot. At the very least without the massive US military support the dictators of the region might be forced to move at least a trifle.
Perhaps not, but the status quo of massive US military support for all those dictatorships hasn't helped matters, has it? and the people have nowhere to turn except to their traditional religious infrastructure. And traditional religious infrastructure, no matter where found, isn't fertile ground for progressive action.

32. You can spot the fake liberal/progressive anti-Israel, BDS supporters....

...a mile away based on their indifference and apathy when it comes to Palestinian human rights under their own leadership (or in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan).

What's disturbing is seeing prominent women's rights advocates (or gay rights advocates) who feel it's bigoted/rightwing to stand up for women and gays in 3rd world countries. They simply don't do it. They feel all the people are behind their oppressive leadership (seculars and liberals too) and sharia (or anything else oppressive) is what they actually want, not Western rights. They could care less about fellow liberals/seculars in those countries.

I can't tell the difference b/w them and the most extreme rightwingers.

17. He endorsed Obama on November 1st

Dershowitz and Obama disagree on Iran. They disagree on Obamacare. They disagree on Hagel. And I can't imagine Obama advocating torture of terrorist suspects, or advocating wholesale destruction of towns in response to terrorist acts as Dershowitz has. Nor can I see Obama rushing to George Zimmerman's defense. Nor can I imagine Obama grabbing his junk and screaming to the heavens about what a nazi fuck Jimmy Carter is. Obama supported the building of that Muslim community center in New York, Dershowitz opposed it.

They don't actually agree on much aside from "(arab) terrorists can be killed by assassination without judicial review." And just ask some actual liberals - you know, Du'ers who post outside this fucking Superfund site of a group - what the "liberal opinion" of assassinations is. Go on.

What Dershowitz does is jump aboard the Democrat ship just as it leaves the dock, so he can be photographed among the "liberals" then he goes overboard (literally and figuratively) right back to his usual Ann Coulter-y diatribes, hate speech, and right-wing dipshittery.

It's as Daneel points out above, with Billo or Hannity; "I'm a registered X who voted for Y!" does not in any way change that a person is a right-wing fascist fuckface.

If that's what you want to rally behind, sure go ahead; it basically just reinforces my opinion of you, so no harm done. But i think it'd be better if you Zionists developed something approaching "basic standards."

I'd also like a pony, while I'm at it.

She supports a wonderful future Palestine that will oppress and kill its gay population, not to mention deny basic rights to women, christians, jews, and just about everyone else...

That oasis of utopianism that Schulman supports will only come into being due to war and perhaps over a million casualties. That makes Schulman a huge war-monger.

Does that put her farther to the right than Dershowitz, in your opinion?

Not very different from useful idiots working side-by-side with the worst militant KKK freakshows. Not caring what they stand for, being assured it's okay to work with them in order to correct some perceived "injustice".

35. And nobody's opposing them here

Except perhaps Dershowitz and the zionists on this thread who believe gay people who have a different opinion should be barred from speaking that opinion, attacked as Nazis, and otherwise treated as subhuman scum. Words are put in her mouth, false positions are attributed to her, and the worst accusations are made.

And rather than allow information to creep into your brain, you just mindlessly, thoughtlessly cheer the attacks against her. Because apparently in your mind, gross misrepresentations and hideous accusations against gay people and Jews is perfectly okay so long as the person engaging in it is a Zionist human trashbag like Dershowitz.

Dershie's also worth your support when he advocates torture. He's your guy when he insists that there's a world-controlling Arab lobby, re-warming a boring old Antisemitic trope and applying it to Arabs. He advocated the invasion of Iraq, loudly, and you of course can't criticize that. he also opposed our withdraw from Iraq, on the basis that resistance to our occupation justified the occupation - boy, that sounds familiar!

Yes David. Actual liberals. You want to cuddle up with Dershowitz, go ahead. But don't try to tell me you're a liberal for doing so. It's not a word that you can mutate to mean whatever the fuck you need it to mean. You can support gay rights while still holding on to a whole suite of other inhuman repressive ideologies that disqualify you from the liberal label. Dershowitz is such a person.

And for what it's worth, he does not think that gay people should have the right to get married. He holds the libertarian idea that marriage should not be a government affair.

Oh. And he thinks Sarah Palin is a victim of blood libel.

What a guy.

48. Yes you do!

David, this tactic of yours, "run and hide behind the Democratic party" when you lose an argument is silly. The Democratic party is wrong about stuff. In fact it's wrong about quite a bit of stuff. For instance, they didn't endorse same-sex marriage until 9/3/12. I'd like to think that you were out of synch with the party's previous opposition to / silence about the subject, but hey, you're here endorsing Dershowitz, so I guess I could be wrong ("abolish state marriage" isn't an answer to the question, Alan!)

It's not a very good tactic Dave. In fact it seems to imply you think all liberals march in absolute lockstep with the democratic party, which would seem to imply a startlingly deep ignorance of anything related to liberals or the democrats... but it does mirror the opinions I regularly see from right-wing dumbfucks (We're all "Obama's stormtroopers" don'cha know, a hive-minded red tidal wave of leftist oppression!)

I'm going to tell you something about "supporting the Jewish state." Several somethings, in fact.

One, calling Israel "The Jewish state" ignores the existence of about a third of Israel's population. I suppose they just don't count? i guess I know the answer to that question, given who I'm talking to.

Two, "support" is a pretty vague term. I'm sure you've seen these "I support the troops!" bumper stickers, yeah? Ever felt tempted to knock on that SUV's window and ask the person inside, "okay, how?" They don't know. They probably figure five bucks for a bumper sticker somehow goes into a "support the troops fund" or lifts someone's spirits or god only knows what. Generally their support is intangible and meaningless.

So too with the "support" most politicians give Israel. Generally it means "I support Israel's existence." Okay... and? Some ambivalence about Taiwan and Palestine aside, is the existence of any nation actually opposed by these politicians? Of course not, you can't be all like "Hey, Moldavia, FUCK YOU, you shouldn't exist!" 'cause then you tick off Moldavia, and Moldavia's buddies, and you have a diplomatic incident on your hands, right? So supporting the existence of any nation (even if done under-the-table, as with Taiwan) is pretty much the default position.

Now the question becomes, what of Israel's actual policies garners this support? Much as with the Democratic party, one can support one thing the organization (in this case, a nation-state) does, while totally opposing something else that the organization does. Walking, chewing gum, that sort of thing.

I think you'll find a lot more ambivalence, hemming, and hawing on the Hill when you ask about specific policies

6. Dershowitz is a proven champion of civil liberties. Schulman is for BDS....

....which means an end to Israel and any civil liberties that exist there. Her sole motivation is to delegitimize Israel and darken its image in order to bring an eventual end to Israel. She and her fellow cohorts hate anything that puts Israel in a positive light. She does not criticize Israel in the hopes of making it a better country. She does so because she hates the country and wants it gone. She is no better than Pam Gellar spewing her hateful shit.

Schulman is a textbook antisemite.

She also supports a future Palestine that will be (based on its leaders now) off the charts extreme rightwing and racist. IOW, she wants liberal Israel replaced by a theocratic, ultra-conservative, fascist, racist, totalitarian regime (which puts Schulman farther to the right than Gellar). Another reason Schulman is farther right than Gellar is due to here non-existent concern for gay rights in Palestine. Hating Israel takes precedence over gay rights in Gaza and the W.Bank. She's no different than Hamas and Islamic Jihad on that.

19. I believe Some views such as antiZionism

And antisemitism and homophobia are freak of nature and should not be tolerated.

36. Well then for two out of three, you shouldn't support Dershowitz

But I guess antisemitism against Jews you disagree with and homophobia against gays you don't like is okay, so long as it's in the name of Zionism.

One wonders why you bother mention two prejudices that you don't actually give a fuck about.

22. "Pinkwashing" is trash generated by a trashy, anti-Israel hating propagandist.

As far as I am concerned, the only one "pinkwashing" is the creator of that word and her creepy minions, which are few in number, at least as far as I can tell.
