Wow. Just wow.
We’ve heard from so many commissioners at the Presbyterian Church (USA)’s 221st General Assembly (and their apologists) about how their actions were not related to the global BDS movement. (I’m convinced the assertion is insupportable – as I detail here.) We’ve also heard how these actions came from a place of love.
The sad part is, many (though by no means all) of the ones saying this actually somehow make themselves believe it is true.
I suggest they read this. It is an announcement on DavidDuke.com
It is titled “Victory! Presbyterian Votes Israeli Divestment!”
And it contains a couple of very interesting assertions:
[W]e heard from friends at the Presbyterian Church national meeting who told us that they were victorious … the Church voted to divest from companies doing business in the brutally occupied West Bank.
“The [sic] tried to threaten the voters by saying that “David Duke” supports this policy and that the Church will get a bad name by supporting something that Dr.Duke has been tied to in the media,” Said Melissa Anderson who was there with close friends who voted on the divestment. “But, people are just not listening to the Jewish racist threats anymore, they are starting to stand up for real justice.”
And it conveys a statement from Dr. Duke congratulating the Presbyterian Church “for standing up to Jewish racism and supremacism!”
You must be so proud.
Yep … No doubt, it was entirely unforeseen that people would interpret your acts as anti-Israel and anti-Jewish. No doubt, you couldn’t be more surprised and distressed because you’re so full of love.
