Atlas Shrugs Blog: Where Sociopathy Gets Confused With Zionism

When Jeffrey Goldberg, an American Jewish Zionist, reached his twenties, he decided he couldn't justify calling himself a Zionist unless he shared in the struggles of Israelis. Thus, making a move virtually unheard of among American Jews, he took Israeli citizenship to join the IDF during the first Intifada, and gave several of the most productive years of his life in service to the Jewish state. (He even wrote a book about it.)
So when he writes an op-ed for the Times arguing that Israeli settlements weaken Israeli security, and hence the organized fronts of American Zionism pushing the Israeli government to coddle the settler movement are hurting Israel and need to rethink what they're doing, it's a fair bet that he's sounding an alarm because of his love for the country, and giving warning true friends of Israel will heed.
False friends of Israel, on the other hand, go into a petit mal seizure at the slightest hint of deviation from a platform of dispatching all the Palestinians with extreme prejudice, and grand mal when that deviationism comes from a fellow Jew. So it only stands to reason that this crazy, inexplicably popular blogger would try to fulfill her service to Israel by smearing a better and truer Zionist than she could ever be, exclaiming: "JEWICIDAL JIHADI BENDS OVER, SUBMITS DEMANDS [sic] ISRAEL." And there's more! "Atlas" — as she preposterously calls herself out of some deeply confused homage to a failed novelist-cum-failed philosopher who actually was a Jew who loathed Judaism — wants to let us know that in addition to all his jihadi faggotry, Goldberg is also a "self-loathing" "jihadi" (she has six separate variations on "Jihad Jeffro," "Jihad Jeff," etc.) complicit in "jewicide," which is later helpfully defined as "dismantling of settlements" in English, and "annihilat[ion of] the Jews" in hyperthyroidic-Kach-speak. Worse still, she notes, Golberg dared to use the name "Jerusalem," which again, in glandularly-disordered-Kachist is "And the use of the word sanctity.Jerusalem is sacred, you asshat." (It's really a different grammar entirely.)
But Goldberg's deepest betrayal of his people, for which "Atlas" would call him a Kapo if she actually knew anything about Jewish history, is — you guessed it — explaining to the goyim that "Mr. Obama is actually more pro-Israel than either Ehud Olmert or Ehud Barak…[t]o say nothing of John McCain and President George W. Bush…." To which "Atlas" responds, staying classy, "Obama is more pro-Israel than Hitler maybe…."
Indeed, it was Goldberg's recent interview with Obama that first tipped "Atlas" off to the fact that Goldberg might in fact be a jihadi faggot, or as her slightly more house-trained pal Caroline Glick puts it, "a disillusioned Zionist who abandoned Israel and moved back to America." Because what better description could there be of one of the most authentically and unequivocally Zionist voices — with all the baggage that entails — in American journalism?
Here's the thing though. People like "Atlas" and Glick have no standing to pronounce on anybody else's Zionist credentials, because they don't have the slightest clue what the concept of Zionism is in the first place. Hence any sentence coming out of their mouths with the word "Zionism" or "Zionist" in it may sound like articulate speech, but is in fact strictly and literally meaningless. The difference between "Atlas," Glick, and the other Daddy's-Amex-fascisti on the one hand, and sociopaths like Apollo Braun on the other, is that he at least makes 250 bucks a sweatshirt. In any case, people with no moral sense can't be morally persuaded, but they can be effectively shunned.
