Yes, Ernst Zundel was a jerk. That’s not the point of the story…
I reached out to Goldenberg:
“Is it your contention that the shooter’s specific beliefs were irrelevant as to the cause of the massacre? If, theoretically, the shooter believed that he was commanded by his faith to kill gays, are you saying that those beliefs would be irrelevant as to his motivation for the crime?”
The brave young gay Jewish leftist Canadian lawyer courageously refused to reply. On the other hand, when one of his tweets was criticized by David Duke, Goldenberg was a real Speedy Gonzales with a response. Because why answer a reasonable question from a gay-friendly politically conservative Jew when you can look heroic by going after a white-supremacist former Klansman?
Low-hanging fruit. This continues to define the gay community’s reaction to Islamic homocide. I wrote about this pathology many years ago, during my establishment conservative days. I dubbed it the “Shalit Syndrome.”
