Democrat Presidential Candidate Quoted and Linked to Anti-Semitic Hate Site

April 30th, 2007 12:36 PM

There is another scandal in the making concerning a Democratic presidential candidate’s blog. Longshot candidate Mike Gravel has a BIG problem. On his website, he proudly quoted and linked to a site which posted some online support of Gravel, excitedly announcing, “Meet the next president of the United States of America.” The site is called “Wake Up from Your Slumber.” Sounds nice and netrooty—very energizing and MoveOn-ish. Well, not exactly. It appears to be an anti-Semitic, conspiracy hate site.

Anyway, why do I think this? Well, it declares the Iranian president, Mahmoud “Death to Israel” Ahmadinejad is “The Man, The Legend” in a post that linked to a video of him denying the Holocaust. The post was titled, “Ahmadinejad: Zionists are NOT Jews” and quoted the Iranian president's speech about “Zionists” and, of course, world domination:

"The Zionists, I want to tell you, are NOT Jews.

That's the biggest deception we've ever faced.

Zionists are Zionists. Period.

They are not Jews.

They are not Christians.

They are not Muslims.

They are a POWER group - a POWER party."


They worship and feed on POWER and CONTROL.

The only way to beat them is to take BOTH away from them.

But wait, there’s more…now the post titled "Michael "The Mole" Moore," ponders whether Michael Moore is really white (emphasis mine):

Did you ever wonder why Michael who "appears caucasian" always rails on "Whites" without any problems?

Have you ever wonder why Michael Moore makes so much money from "Hollywood" even though he is "supposed" to go against them?

Yes, they actually are debating the “whiteness” of Michael Moore. Bad sign for Gravel. It isn’t just this one post; it is post after post on this site that rails against the Israelis, and their devious ways. Because, you know, they control US foreign policy. And the media. And the banks. And Hollywood. And the world. It is a site and blogger obsessed with conspiracies of every kind—Skull and Bones, Freemasons, the dollar bill, 9/11, One World Government, “cashless society” and the always evil corporations. You get the picture. If I look more, I’ll probably find something about a weather machine and "Zionist" CIA psychics trying to penetrate the blogger's mind.

How will the media handle a presidential candidate linking to and quoting an anti-Semitic site" However, I'm sure they would claim they are *merely* anti-Zionist (wink, wink). The media exploded in a frenzy when some Republican presidential candidates in years past went to the unaccredited Bob Jones University, which had racially discriminatory policies. Even recently, the media focused on John McCain speaking at Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University after including Falwell among the “agents of intolerance” when he accused Bush of pandering to portions of the religious right.

We’ll see if the media notice. So far, they haven’t.
