A Maryland senator and delegate are the targets of a flier that attacks them as "bagel brain Jews" for their support of pending firearms legislation in the General Assembly and accuses them of pursuing "racist policies to destroy your gun rights."And it's certainly true that the article mostly takes the side of the two politicians skewered by JPFO's handbill.
"It's ugly, and I suppose it's intended to be threatening, but it doesn't change my view," said Frosh.Okay, I don't see how it's in any way threatening, but I am forced to agree that it certainly is ugly.
JPFO (Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, for those even further out of the loop than I am) is, as the name implies, a primarily Jewish organization. Nothing comes out of it that doesn't have Zelman's seal of approval. And Zelman, though rarely the most self-censoring of men, is very unlikely to be anti-Semitic. In fact I've seen him take a very hard line with would-be contributors that were. So I take it on faith that the handbill isn't.
But...well...I've got to admit that even by my standards, this just isn't the most unambiguous or well-considered publication I've ever seen. I mean, come on. Bagel brain Jews? I know I'd be expecting to see something from Stormfront.
EDIT: Okay, I give up on trying to get the damned thing to format properly. Just click on the pic for the whole thing.
