Shapiro Calls Emanuel "a Kapo".

Ben Shapiro has issued what he calls "an open letter to American Jews" in which he states:

American Jews, I have one request of you: please pull your heads out of your posteriors.

I mean that in all sincerity. Your continued support for Democrats and an administration that is openly anti-Semitic is a disgrace. Your embrace of a party that seeks to hamstring Israel in the name of a wholly fictitious Middle East peace process is contemptible. Your loyalty to a president who consistently sides with Palestinian and Iranian mass murder-supporters is disgusting.

Your backing of a man who has spent his life surrounding himself with the worst anti-Semites America has to offer -- Jeremiah Wright, Rashid Khalidi (former Palestinian terrorist spokesman), Louis Farrakhan ("I don't like the way [Jews] leech on us"), Samantha Power, Robert Malley, to name a few -- is nothing short of reprehensible. Rahm Emanuel's presence in the Obama cabinet doesn't ameliorate Obama's anti-Semitism -- it just provides it convenient cover. Al Sharpton wrongly called Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell "house negroes"; Emanuel is a kapo.

Two things stand out here. (1) He thinks the peace process is "wholly fictitious" and (2) he calls Emanual "a kapo"; in other words, Emanuel is the equivalent of a prisoner who worked inside the Nazi concentration camps.

From Wikipedia:
Kapos received more privileges than normal prisoners, towards whom they were often brutal. They were often convicts who were offered this work in exchange for a reduced sentence or parole.
For the rest of his letter he spends all of his time telling American Jews that they need to support the Tea Party movement.

It's an astonishing diatribe; angry, insulting and unhinged. Which I suppose is the best description of the Tea Party movement that one could muster.

Looks like a child, sounds like a child. What's the point?

He is actually the youngest nationally syndicated columnist in the U.S. But he is 26.

The point is the level of insult towards Emanuel, I think for one Jewish man to call another Jewish man "a kapo" is simply nauseating.

It's hard to call something a movement when it doesn't have a direction.

Amen, SP.
