Anti-Semitism On Parade
It doesn't take much to shock us cats these days. People throwing stuff over the White House fence? Old news. Bobby Jindal saying he'd vote for a man he recently called a "narcissist" and an "egomaniac"? Par for the course. Donald Drumpf kicking up another tweetstorm? Ho-hum.
But we have to admit that we raised our furry eyebrows over the insults hurled at Bill Kristol, who keeps bleating about a Never-Trump, independent candidate. (That was the reason behind Drumpf's most recent string of furious tweets.) Breitbart "News" has called Kristol a "renegade Jew" for opposing Trump.
Now, we cats are no fans of Bill Kristol, but an accusation that ends with the word "Jew" is revolting. Have we just zipped back to the 1930s in a time machine? How is this kind of language even possible in 2016?
It's almost as bad as using "Democrat" as an adjective. We cats HISS.
