@wapo hears dog whistles

It is getting really, really weird in the world of print journalism these days. As circulation falls, most of the good people are bailing. Dana Milbank remains at the Washington Post writing rubbish like this:
When Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) last month mocked Donald Trump’s “New York values,” it wasn’t entirely clear what he was implying.
This week we got a clue: For Cruz, “New York” is another way of saying “Jewish.”
At an event in New Hampshire, Cruz, the Republican Iowa caucuses winner, was asked about campaign money he and his wife borrowed from Goldman Sachs. Cruz, asserting that Trump had “upward of $480 million of loans from giant Wall Street banks,” said: “For him to make this attack, to use a New York term, it’s the height of chutzpah.” Cruz, pausing for laughter after the phrase “New York term,” exaggerated the guttural “ch” to more laughter and applause.
But “chutzpah,” of course, is not a “New York” term. It’s a Yiddish — a Jewish — one. And using “New York” as a euphemism for “Jewish” has long been an anti-Semitic dog whistle.
"Dog whistle" is a euphemism for "voices in my head tell me."

Milbank is nuts.

And of course, evangelical Christians are among the most ardent supporters of Israel in America. Liberals, not so much anymore.


  1. Meanwhile, in other news, Donald Trump is back and looking like a real "Class Act":

  2. Dana Milbank is a non-practicing Jew who wrote this to slime Cruz by accusing him of anti-Semitism. Once again, when Liberals sense they are losing, they play their race, ethnic, religious cards. Milbank is not "nuts," he is a bigot. In Yiddish, he is a "shvants," a "kucker"

  3. Psychiatrist shows a guy some ink blots. Guy sees people copulating in every one. Psychiatrist: you're a pervert. Guy: me? You're the one with the dirty pictures.

  4. Leftist always hear dog whistles...being the dogs they are.

  5. I thought dog whistles were supposed to be inaudible to the human ear. - Elric

    1. Only those tuned to hear it/them, which/who are leftists.
