Echos of the Past

Below is a cartoon by Ed Hall. As you can see, it accompanies a piece by the authors of the current version of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, Walt and Mearsheimer.

Check out the next cartoon.
It's a Nazi propaganda cartoon from a magazine called Die Brennessel. The caption, as stated here, says,
"A Scene from the 'Good Old Days.'" The theme is freedom of the press. This supposedly depicts the situation before 1933, when the Nazis claimed the Jews controlled the German press. (2 January 1934)
I don't want to call Ed Hall or the L.A. Times Nazis or Jew haters. There is enough name calling these days. And I'm sure that neither the Times or Mr. Hall think of themselves as Jew haters. I don't even know if they would admit to the current dodge of modern anti-Semites who claim to have nothing against the Jews but instead refer to themselves as "anti-Zionist". I do know that there is a frightening similarity in the two cartoons, and an equally frightening willingness on the part of major American newspapers to give editorial space to people with opinions that ten years ago were only openly spewed by neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other unsavory characters. They call it free speech, but as we've seen it only works in one direction. I'd like to see the same scrutiny applied to CAIR, The Muslim Brotherhood, and Saudi Arabia.

Sometimes it's hard to tell when someone is expressing a geniuine political viewpoint and when there are other bigoted feelings beneath.

Sometimes other folks have thought badly of me when I hadn't meant what something "looks like."

It is a strange sort of resemblance, though, I must admit.
