Background: the Presbyterian Church (USA) finally voted narrowly to retreat from doing business with Jews... oh, pardon me: I meant 'divest themselves from companies that sell stuff to Israel.' The virulent anti-Semites - oops, I was trying to type out 'hardcore progressive activists' - in that particular sect have been pushing for this for some time; they finally got their way. Which makes this Kinsley Gaffe - yikes, what it is with me, today? I absolutely thought that was going to be expressed as 'inarticulate comment' - all the more fascinating.
...Heath Rada, moderator for the church meeting, said immediately after the vote that "in no way is this a reflection of our lack of love for our Jewish brothers and sisters."
So, apparently, there is an actual lack of love: it just... had no actual effect on this decision, then.
God, but the hardline Activist Left gets all tangled up sometimes when they try to hide their true feelings. Look, we all know the truth. Rabid progressives hate proud Jews, particularly the ones who refuse to embrace their place as perpetual victims. Why do those people keep pretending otherwise?
Oh, right, because most people in this country aren't anti-Semites, and cordially despise people who are. Silly me.
