Have you noticed how anti-semitism has been stolen by the left-wing radicals? Hatred of the jews was always a right-wing hatred, it has gradually been usurped by the left-wing. The most common manifestation is the pro-Palestinian, anti-Israeli protests we hear so much about. Last year at Concordia, left-wing protesters wouldn't let former Jewish p.m. Netanyahu speak, and they were bullying and silencing jews on the campus.
And anyone who thinks that intolerance is limited to the right-wing has obviously never found themselves in the unfortunate circumstance of being in a politically incorrect group. The right-wing traditionally hates blacks, gays and women. The left-wing traditionally hates whites, men, and Christians. Try going to a University campus and oppose abortion, or condemn hiring quotas, or speak for father's rights, and see how "tolerant" left-wingers really are.
I'm just surprised that anti-semitism has switched camps. When you think "hating Jews" you automatically think of Nazis and other right-wing radicals. How ironic is it that if Hitler himself were alive today he'd find himself in agreement with the communists and socialists on this issue, and at odds with the right-wing likes of Pat Buchanan!
