Yeah, they did. The “Truth Team,” now with more anti-Semitism! Obama’s Truth Team tweeted out the link to Maureen Dowd’s latest column, which has been widely denounced as anti-Semitic.
Dowd’s column has come under fire for its anti-Semitism. And its utter hackery, which is par for the course with Maureen Dowd.
More from Mediaite:
Commentary Magazine’s Jonathan Tobin savaged Dowd’s column as “creepy” and says that this episode should not be swept under the rug:
Dowd’s column marks yet another step down into the pit of hate-mongering that has become all too common at the Times. This is a tipping point that should alarm even the most stalwart liberal Jewish supporters of the president.
Jeffrey Goldberg, national correspondent for The Atlantic, responded immediately to the slurs printed in the Times on the eve of the Jewish new year holiday. In Happy New Year, Puppet Masters, Goldberg goes after Dowd for her liberal use of offensive slurs to attack Ryan.
But that didn’t stop Team Obama from spreading the anti-Semitism when they tweeted out Dowd’s column in an attempt to slam Romney. This, of course, is coming from the team of a man who has no time to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, what with all his Vegas trips and all.
Who would ask, indeed? The lapdoggies at Politico at least ask, allegedly, yet they chose to bury the lede. They made slight mention of the Truth Team tweeting out the article in the last paragraph, as NRO’s Jonah Goldberg noted.
Ha! That would be all over in huge headline-y font. Several times. Politico’s Glenn Thrush tries to play defense.
Bingo! We all know the answer, don’t we? Fetch, Politico, fetch!
Twitter users find Obama’s Truth Team to be neither truthful nor decent.
Your move, lapdoggies. Will you ask President Obama if he agrees with the anti-Semitic tropes in Dowd’s article? His Truth Team is wholly endorsing them and all.
