Gallopin’ down the backstretch and leading the pack in the race to the bottom sweepstakes, Florida State Rep. Randy Fine called a fellow Jewish Man a “Judenrat” cause he dared to participate in a forum discussion about justice for the Palestinians…
‘Republican state Rep. Randy Fine twice called a Jewish Facebook commenter a “Judenrat,” a term used to describe Jewish Nazi collaborators, for his supporting an event to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian situation….
…In an April 4 post on his Facebook page, Fine called that night’s event in Melbourne, the ‘Palestine/Israel, Opening the Dialogue’ panel discussion sponsored by the Space Coast Progressive Alliance, an “anti-Semitic rally targeting Jews sponsored by a Democrat club.”…
…In an interview, Phil Stasik, the president of the Alliance, said “everything [in Fine’s description] is wrong. We’re not a ‘Democrat’ club, we’re a progressive group. It was certainly not a ‘rally,’ it was a panel discussion. And it sure as hell wasn’t ‘anti-Semitic.’”
On Facebook a Jewish participant in the event pointed out to Fine that the forum was merely a discussion about the ongoing tension between Israelis and Palestinians.
Fine called it a “farce” and used the first Judenrat reference which led to this exchange:
This current iteration of the GOP is nothing more than a open sewer.
And Fine has floated to the top…
…to mix metaphors.
