171. You make a lot of claims, but show nothing concrete
Edited on Fri Jul-10-09 11:45 AM by Time for change
You say that McKinney has "repeatedly endorsed the racist conspiracy theories of Matthias Chang..." But the only quote you come up with to substantiate that claim is "Shadow Money Lenders" -- hardly an anti-Semitic phrase. If she had meant that phrase to be a slur against Jews, wouldn't have she used a phrase like "Jewish shadow money lenders" or "Zionist shadow money lenders"? But no, "Shadow Money Lenders" is the only quote you can show me from her to substantiate her anti-Semitic inclinations. You don't see a problem with that?

Many of us on DU (including me) who are not in the least bigoted believe that financial elites in our country have perpetrated giant frauds against the American people (and others). The vast majority of us who believe that don't give a damn what religious background those people come from -- and I assume that they come from a diverity of religious backgrounds, including Christian, Jewish and atheist. It may be that there are some anti-Semites out there who hold similar theories but stress Jewish connections. One can agree with parts of a theory without agreeing with all of it.
