What kind of fuckery is this?

Oh, man ... put down that bagel or you'll lose it. This morning, we have the batshit crazy Kathy Shaidle posting over at SDA (two levels of dumbassitude for the price of one, and no, I'm not even going to link anymore, it's not worth the trouble). Behold the wingnuttery:

Chapters-Indigo Boycott: the slo-mo Kristallnacht continues

Kathy here, guest blogging for Kate...

Time to go shopping again, kiddies!

The Jew-haters at Rabble are publicizing the latest Boycott Chapters-Indigo Picket this Saturday, June 9, in which handfuls of (literally) smelly (I know: I shoved through them last time) unemployed misguided losers protest outside bookstores because a Jewish woman owns them.

Here's a chant you can use:

Hippies, hippies, you're so sad/ We charge you with smelling bad!

Warning: this Rabble thread contains the words "apartheid" and "Chomsky." Those with pre-existing medical conditions may want to consult their doctor etc. Note one lone voice of reason is manfully trying to argue using facts -- poor thing...

Israel is the only nation in the history of civilization expected to give up land it captured in a war, and Palestinians are the only "refugees" still hanging around waiting to go back "home." Watch old footage of Nassar and co. around the 6 Day War. They don't talk about "Israel", they always say "the Jews." That's all you need to know.

To which the second commenter tries to inject a little sanity:

"...because a Jewish woman owns them."

That is an outright fabrication:

"We want to send a clear message to the majority shareholders, Heather Reisman and Gerry Schwartz, that their links to the HESEG Foundation for Lone Soldiers (individuals from outside of Israel that want to serve in its military) - are unacceptable."

As an aside, a Jewish woman by the name of Judy Rebick is the operator of Rabble; by your "logic" these "Jew haters" hang around a Jewish owned (and frequented) site plotting to boycott Jews...because they hate Jews? Who overwhelmingly vote left? Try again.

That is so awesome. In a single post, Kathy falsely accuses people of anti-Semitism, refers to protestors as "hippies," and finally accuses them of smelling bad.

As the co-founder of the Blogging Tories, Stephen Taylor must be so proud.

Ah, the "furious nobody" strikes again.

You can't stop Shaidle from lying. She's a liar; probably has been all her life.

I've heard of this group before. Their protest is legitimate, and if it were anyone else but Heather Reisman, this wouldn't have been an issue beyond the usual righty cat-calls accusing lefties of being causa-holics. But that doesn't have the *punch* a psychotic like Shaidle needs to draw attention to herself, so she has to accuse them, each and every one of being Josef Mengele.

Of course, no one else is allowed to descend to that level. That would be outrageous.

Do you remember the good old days when Chapters/Indigo was the enemy of the rightwing retards?

I still think it is; but morality and coherence have nothing to do with the image a corporate body needs to remain dominant in a market that doesn't need to rely on them as much.

I use to love going to Chapters (after I resigned myself to the fact that the independent booksellers weren't coming back); now I don't bother, and buy my books through the Internet, and only shop at small chains. Besides, Chapters has gotten so junked up with merchandise completely unrelated to the book trade that I feel silly walking into it; they should change the name to Books 'n Things.

Do we need to even question the sanity of someone who utters "Israel is the only nation in the history of civilization expected to give up land it captured in a war"?

That statement is so delusional I don't even know where to begin.
