I love the way the Canadian Jewish Congress comes out today with videos and press releases about the anti-semitic rallies going on across Canada. Of course, I exposed this situation first, and so did others.
But it looks like Bernie Farber wants to take credit (as usual) for being the brave Nazi hunter when he didn’t have the nerve to show up and counter protest, like some of us (non-Jews) did.
Days after the story made international headlines thanks to me and other bloggers, the Canadian Jewish Congress looks like it’s trying to take credit for exposing all this.
But I forgot: we’re still the enemy. Right…
It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if the CJC was bankrolling Warman’s lawsuit – they’ve done joint legal work together before, and Warman’s number one defender is on the CJC’s legal committee. The CJC hates conservatives, and this would be a way for them to do damage to the conservative blogosphere without taking the political flak for it.
Bernie Farber will get his Order of Canada, while I get the legal bills, thanks to his best friend.
UPDATE — Mark Steyn adds:
But just for the record the CJC did not expose the “hatred and violence”. For one thing, Bernie, Warren & Co didn’t bother going to the Hamas rallies. Kathy Shaidle did, and Girl on the Right did, and Point de Bascule did, and Kate McMillan and others spread the news about what they saw. Bernie Farber said nothing. Even the great Nazi Hunting Toilet Warrior lui-meme was silent.
What’s interesting about that group is how many of them – Kate, Kathy, Ezra – are being harrassed by Richard Warman, the guy Bernie Farber thinks is the greatest Nazi hunter of all time.
