'Holy sh*t': New York Times doing their part to mainstream 'raging anti-Semitism'

Anti-Semitism has become pretty mainstream, but you know what? It can always get a little bit more mainstream. Thank goodness the New York Times is here to help with that.

In the New York Times interview, Walker touted David Icke’s “And the Truth Shall Set You Free.” More about that from Tablet’s Yair Rosenberg:

A former soccer player turned professional hate peddler, Icke is one of the most influential conspiracy theorists in Europe, and certainly in Britain. Today, he has over 777,000 followers on Facebook, and speaks to audiences around the world. Like many conspiracy theorists, Icke claims that a secret conspiracy controls the world. And like many conspiracy theorists, Icke claims that this secret conspiracy happens to be Jewish. In And The Truth Shall You Free, the word “Jewish” appears 241 times, and the name “Rothschild” is mentioned 374 times. These references are not compliments. Indeed, the book was so obviously anti-Semitic that Icke’s publisher refused to publish it, and he had to print it himself.

That’s only scratching the surface of Icke’s noxious work. But Alice Walker is proud to share that she keeps that book on her nightstand. And the New York Times doesn’t see fit to even bat an eye.

Not only is he a flaming anti-Semite; he’s also off his rocker:

Alice Walker admires the hell out of this guy. She has for years:

That a celebrated cultural figure like Walker would promote such a self-evidently unhinged bigot might seem surprising at first glance. But this is only because the cultural establishment has spent years studiously looking away from Walker’s praise of Icke and his work, and her repeated expressions of anti-Semitism.

The New York Times has to have known that … but they’re giving her a platform to spread Icke’s gospel anyway?

What does the New York Times accomplish by promoting Walker? Whatever it is, it’s not good:

Normally, this is where I’d say that it was good that the Times published Walker’s Icke recommendation because it lets us know who she is. But we have known who she is for many years. It is rather the Times and other cultural elites who have opted to ignore this inconvenient fact. Thus, the only thing that is accomplished by uncritically disseminating Walker’s bigoted book bon mots is ensuring that the racism is disseminated to more people.

Walker is no better than someone like Alex Jones, so what makes her so special while Jones is considered toxic?

Fair point.

It’s worth noting that the New York Times was also apparently unfazed by this line from Walker:

“I will always be on the side of babies. Which is why I support a woman’s right to abortion.”

Just in case you’re wondering what kind of human garbage we’re dealing with.
