      I do have a problem with putting a star if david on a jewish senator. I think it demeans the debate. I post here because I thought it was a place to debate things in an intelligent fashion not insulting propaganda. If I wanted that I could have gone to any number of other sites I find undesirable who post anti semetic and anti american propaganda. It is one of these sites no doubt that Don got the picture from. By the way I am not even jewish and I find it insulting. So I chose not to post here or pay money to a site that condones this anymore.
      flipped42, that photo does not represent iTulip, and it would be a mistake to assume that the members here or the management condones the photo.

      I, too, missed the stars. I was busy identifying those in the photo.

      Here's a revised copy of the offending photo.
      Don would you consider replacing the original one with this one?

      AC3, I was surprised to see these technically well-produced anti-Semitic photos. I usually associate this kind of prejudice with weak intelligence and low-life incompetence. It's good to be aware that this kind of negative stuff is out in the world. But perhaps it would be better to give a link to the artist's website than reproduce the actual photos here?

          All this points out is that the squeaky-wheel Zionists have got you all by the short and curlies. . .

            jew's can tell jew jokes. black can tell back jokes. poles can tell polish jokes.

            if the author of the pic is jewish, the star of david is ok, but i guarantee you the pic author is not jewish.

            what's your race/religion? i'll tell you some 'jokes' about it & you tell me if i'm funny.

              Boyz, boyz, (boychick to you, metalman ) can we get over the acknowledged miscue. Satirizing the financial oligarchy, in an instructive way, belongs on iTulip. I know, I know, it wasn't the author's intent- he's criticizing Israeli policy- I never would have posted that image if I had 'seen' those additions- but as a artistic blow to FIRE, it's pretty great (sans Star of David- whew!)

                  You are mildly entertaining. . .Funny? I don't know;)

                  Those who don't know the difference between Zionism and Judaism could take the time to educate themselves.

                    This which is similar to the picture don posted

                    ujeEekDs_odlw_0_0_0x0_400x585.jpg

                    Translation "YOU ARE RESONSIBLE FOR THE WAR"

                    led to this

                    1_jpg.jpg

                    led to this

                    67849-004-0A532A89.jpg

                    led to this

                    holocaust-victims-in-bunks.jpg

                    led to this

                    holocaust_mass_grave_belsen_kuiks_19886.jpg

                    So I refuse to be associated with a site that is anyway spreading anti-semetic propaganda or any propaganda targeting any particular racial group. We have seen this movie before and must as a group remain vigilant to identify when the same logic an thinking perpetrate society again. If you have a problem with Isreal and you side with the palestinians fine but when you target a person due to race you start the long indocternation process into genocide. I do not think I am over reacting and I hope management takes appropriate action or they will get not my thougths or my money any more. This is not a freedom of speech issue. The artist has every right to their opinion I just choose not to associate myself with this type of dribble. My choice my vote. By the way Happy Hanukkah Fred please do the right thing.

                      I hope they take no action. I object to encouraging censure based not on the intentions of the speaker, but on the interpretation of those words (or images) by the listener (or viewer), even when that interpretation has good evidence. Hypothetical harm is insufficient reason for actual restrictions on speech.

                      Using the Holocaust as justification for shutting down any expressions which some listener might view as critical of Jews is an attempt to justify a License in Politically Correct Tyranny.

                      It is quite reasonable, as you did, to call out to the original poster the alternative view of his original image and the evidence supporting the prejudiced views of the creator of that image. That was useful information to several of us here. And of course, you're free to come and go as you choose. But arming the authorities (Fred, in this case) with our consent and encouragement to impose a Politically Correct filter (not only what was meant, but also what might be interpreted) on postings is dangerous and unnecessary. I for one refuse by my silence to consent to such encouragement.

                            glad they moved it to rand & rave vs censor it. that way we have a chance to educate those who think an image such as this...



                            ...is anything but stupid, antisemitic crap.

                              Criticism of Israel is perfectly acceptable on these forums, but Dees' material displays his racist beliefs through racist imagery, and not only antisemitic racist imagery but against other groups as well. The artist also displays an out-sized susceptibility to conspiracy theories.










                              There are plenty of sites on the Internet where one can go to see this kind of material. This isn't one of them.

                              His material will not be permitted on the these forums. We are closing this thread. Sorry it took us so long. We missed this one. We've been busy.
