Matthew Vadum has taken to David Horowitz’s NewsReal blog to call me a “self-hating Jew.” Actually, Vadum attempted to distance himself from his predictable canard by saying I have been “frequently called a self-hating Jew by [my] critics.” (Marty’s boy once called me a self-hating Jew but Commentary apparently forced him to scrub his post; I don’t know who the other critics are). So is Vadum a Jew himself or is this just a particularly clear case of right-wing goyisherkop? And does David Horowitz, who was raised by Stalinists with no religion and who called his own father an “old Yid” in his memoir, “Radical Son” (then compared him to Mohammed Atta in a subsequent memoir), agree with the nature of Vadum’s attack?
Horowitz has harbored a vendetta against me ever since I pointed out that one of his writers was defending a neo-Nazi professor who called a college basketball team “nigger to the core” and denounced Fairleigh Dickinson University as “a Jewish plutocratic university.” Horowitz went on to embarrass himself in three separate interactions with me and now, he’s defending James O’Keefe’s weird minstrel show as some sort of payback. He is a very fragile and unstable personality. See his histrionics below the fold.
