Lee Smith on anti-Zionist trolls

Lee Smith has a provocative little piece in Tablet on anti-Zionism (I’m not allowed to mention anti-Semitism because it’s no longer supposed to exist) in the blogosphere:

What is notable about such comments is not that they are original or unusual, but that there are hundreds and thousands of them, each sicker and crazier than the next, appended like a mile-long oil slick to nearly any mainstream news story or opinion piece that mentions Israel.

I know this because the few comments my own blog receives are largely tacked on to my posts about Israel.

Note to commenters: it’s ok to comment on the literary stuff and the atheism, too. It’s encouraged!

  1. I’m gonna start writing some crazy over-the-top anti-religion stuff whenever you post anything about atheism on the blog, so as to enable Lee Smith in a guilt-by-association hit piece about you.
