Sid and Max Blumenthal – two thugs who would fit in well with a certain obese, flatulent, blogger

Sid Blumenthal is a vicious, loathsome, disgusting consigliere of from the Clinton Mafia. His son Max Blumenthal is a genocidal Jew hating Progressive. They sound as if they would be right at home at Little Green Footballs and wold be BFF’s with Alouette (the Kapo), ProTardis Liberal, and  Curious Lurker.  Mr. Toot  is big on innuendos, slanders, character assassination – he could be Sid’s brother and Max’s uncle.

hat tip – Speranza from Blogmocracy

by James Kirchick

It’s a shame that Hillary Clinton wasn’t able to convince the Obama White House to let Sidney Blumenthal serve under her at the State Department. Blumenthal, the liberal journalist-turned-Clinton family consigliere, earned himself quite the reputation during the bruising 2008 Democratic primary, when his main job seemed to be sending out mass emails chock full of links to lurid stories about Barack Obama culled from the very “vast right-wing conspiracy” that he had combatted his entire adult life.

According to Politico, for his efforts, Blumenthal earned the moniker “Sulfur-Breathing Spawn of Hell” from Obama campaign staffers. That Clinton ever thought she had a chance of putting Blumenthal on the State Department payroll says something about her chutzpah.

If only those embittered Obama staffers had let bygones be bygones and harnessed the acumen of the inveterate emailer, they might have been able to strike a major blow for Middle East peace.

Buried in the pages of once-confidential missives that Blumenthal sent to Clinton during her tenure at the State Department, since subpoenaed by a congressional committee investigating the 2011 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, was a claim that the then-interim president of Libya, Mohammed Yussef el-Magariaf, wanted to “seek a discreet relationship with Israel.” According to a “sensitive source,” Blumenthal wrote, “political realities in Libya at present will dictate that this relationship be handled in a low key manner, but the new President of Libya shares many common friends and associates with the leaders of Israel and intends to take advantage of this situation to improve the lot of the Libyan people.”

It’s entirely possible that this information was overly optimistic, if not entirely false. Forwarding the email onto an aide, Clinton expressed skepticism, prefacing her remark that the news was “encouraging” with “if true.” When Seymour Hersh, himself a man known for an overactive imagination, questions the validity of your information (as he did Blumenthal’s claims, made in another email to Clinton, that Hersh was preparing to interview an ousted Muammar Gaddafi hiding in Chad), it’s a discouraging sign.

But what’s most revealing about Blumenthal’s giddy hopes for a potential Libyan-Israeli rapprochement is how much it differs from other sentiments he had expressed about the Jewish state. For it wasn’t so long ago that Sidney Blumenthal was hawking the vitriolic anti-Israel book published by his son, Max, and attacking those who had criticized it.

In the course of a short career, the younger Blumenthal gradually exiled himself from respectable journalistic outlets, and so several years ago decided to reinvent himself as Israel’s most outspoken and extreme Jewish antagonist, at one point writing for a Beirut-based newspaper aligned with the Assad regime in Syria, before deciding that the blood-drenched regime in Damascus was no longer to his liking. His 2013 book Goliath is so venomous in its denunciations of Israel, and so strident in its defense of terrorism against it, that Eric Alterman, himself a harsh critic of Israel and a columnist for the far-left Nation magazine, concluded that it “could have been published by the Hamas Book-of-the-Month Club (if it existed) without a single word change once it’s translated into Arabic.”

“[W]hat’s most revealing about Blumenthal’s giddy hopes for a potential Libyan-Israeli rapprochement is how much it differs from other sentiments he had expressed about the Jewish state.”

The book is replete with comparisons of Israeli Jews to Nazis, and calls for the ethnic cleansing of Jews from the Middle East. The book’s last chapter, “Exodus,” a riff on Jewish biblical history and the Leon Uris tome of the same name, envisions the reverse Exodus of the Jews out of their homeland. Asked at a 2013 event about what he believes should happen to Israel’s Jews, Blumenthal fils responded, “There should be a choice placed to the settler-colonial population” (that is, the Jewish population): “Become indigenized…you have to be part of the Arab world.” Those who don’t? “The maintenance and engineering of a non-indigenous demographic majority is non-negotiable.” In other words, leave or suffer.

When Max’s book came under attack from Alterman, Sidney did what he does best: he launched what Buzzfeed described as “an online campaign” against the Nation columnist. According to Alterman, “I worried that by telling the truth about his son’s book, I would soon hear of nasty e-mails about me sent by Sid to our mutual friends and professional acquaintances. Call it ‘bizarre,’ if you will, but sadly, that’s just what happened.”

It’s one thing to love your son, and another entirely to endorse his controversial work (Sidney hosted a book party for Max) and attack those who criticize it. By doing so, Blumenthal the elder identified himself as a sponsor of his son’s calumnies.

Not that everyone hated Goliath. Frazier Glenn Cross, the 73-year-old white supremacist who murdered three people at Kansas Jewish Community Center and retirement home last year, was one of Blumenthal’s biggest devotees. “Jew journalist Max Blumenthal exposes and explains this attempt by a foreign government Israel, to buy the presidential election for the neo-con, war-mongering republican establishment,” Cross wrote on a Ron Paul fan site in 2012, referencing an interview Blumenthal gave on the Russian government-funded RT network. A survey of a white supremacist web forum run by Cross found over 300 references to Blumenthal and his work, with posters lauding his exposes of nefarious Jewish influence.

Last year, Max earned himself the distinction of being barred from the German Bundestag after he chased the leader of the country’s Left Party into a toilet, demanding to know why the parliamentarian had put the kibosh on a talk Blumenthal was scheduled to give at the invitation of two Left Party members. Scheduled to speak on the day after the anniversary of Kristallnacht, outraged party members initiated a petition criticizing their colleagues’ hosting Blumenthal, which they said amounted to “stoking obsessive hate and demonization of Israel with an anti-Semitic argument pattern and trivialization of the Holocaust.”

The Clintons value loyalty about all else, and it’s hard to imagine Sidney Blumenthal doing anything that would make Hillary consider him a liability. But Blumenthal’s freelance diplomacy raises an intriguing question: who is the real Sidney Blumenthal? The one promoting Israel’s interest in the broader Middle East by trumpeting a Libyan politician eager to make peace with the Jewish state? Or the one who promotes his son’s work portraying Israel as a uniformly ghastly, racist country and American Jews as its disloyal double agents?

      Soon, as the defense of Obama at all costs loses value, the defense of She Who Is Inevitable And Must Be Elected At all Costs will become the imperative. This’ll give Toot something to tweet about for another … until the tin cup runs out.

    Sad to lose Chris Squire. Yes had a lot of musicians come and go but Chris was always there, and they never performed live without him.

    Yes was driven by Chris Squire’s bass, everything else fitted around him nicely. It’s a shocker that he passed on. Fans of Yes feel a void today.

    RIP Chris

      • pineapple is ready for the next outrage says:

        Great showcase song for Chris, there are many.

        Geoff Downes filled in for Rick Wakeman, and Trevor Horn for Jon Anderson in this video. It was truly amazing how close Trevor Horn sounded like Jon Anderson.

        Trevor Horn and Geoff Downes are better known as “The Buggles” of course.

      • Because says:

        I suspect the reason he sounded like Anderson is the soundtrack was Anderson. I think they dubbed the video later.

      • pineapple is ready for the next outrage says:

        It was Trevor Horn not dubbed….. amazing I know.

        “While no one on God’s given Earth can sing like Jon Anderson, Trevor Horn sings close enough (albeit in a *slightly* lower register), and he takes Anderson’s place at the mic just fine.”

        “Trevor Horn may be to Yes what George Lazenby is to the James Bond movies (i.e. he only made one, *and* he was filling a very large pair of shoes), but give the guy some credit: he was good! ”

      How sensitive of you Barry…. considering four men – with balls – lost their lives because of Hillary and Obama….. neither of which have balls – like you.

      So, four mean with backbone, and balls, and a sense of patriotism and a sense of doing the right thing DID the right thing…. but it was politically inexpedient (five syllables for you there dumbass) for the current Administration or the Secretary of State (who has traveled many miles in an airplane mind you) to do anything in support of these four men who gallantly fought for their lives and lost. And then they died. Dead.

      They died…. fighting for a principle of freedom and liberty.

      And here you are, like so many other mouth breathers… thinking you are hip and edgy…. making these dumbass comments. Have you no soul? Are you really this fucking stupid?


      Yes, you are behaving as we would expect. And, you are a disgrace to your country and to the human race.

      You sit arrogantly at your computer and think you are being clever with “nothingburger”. You are shameful and an embarrassment to all of the men and women who have given their lives so you can sit around with your dick in your hand making a jackass of yourself.

      There you go buddy. It’s all up to you now and you won’t have to rely on any more charity. You can be self sufficient. Of course, this means you’ll have to give up being on Twitter all day & night, but seeing your (tens of thousands of) tweets over the last year or so, we and the rest of the world won’t be missing much.

      Get out there and live life Gus. It’s too late for Charles, he’s a useless has-been (or never-was) and will slowly deteriorate into a pitiful, loveless existence, passing away in his condo a broke, smelly, worthless wretch. You, on the other hand, can still make something useful out of yourself. You can work a job and over the next ten years even earn yourself some Social Security and possibly put away a few bucks. At the very least you could afford a bed, heating and A/C and even get yourself a full-time internet connection so you don’t have to rely on the Obama-phone for all your tweets and porn.

      • Octopus says:

        A very noble, optimistic gesture, Trebob. Sadly, it will come to naught. Others have tried, offering him jobs, career advice, all kinds of encouragement — he isn’t interested. He has found his foul niche.

      • Chunky's Missing Brain says:

        Absolutely. He needs two jobs. It doesn’t sound like he has much family or anything else occupying his time. If he can type libturd drivel all day then he can work for a temp agency doing various office jobs or get a job as a phone rep. If he’s not gimpy waiting tables is a great way to make some cash. But I have a feeling, like Mr. Toot he has some crappy little libtard hellhole of a website he’s saying he “owns”. And therefore he’s in the blogging business and he just happens to take a loss every year and therefore qualifies for handouts from taxpayers who have no choice.

    Here’s some pathetic dumbth being performed at the BET awards that would rate grade A approved by Toot and his 11 SJW morons.

    Once again it seems to say via imagery that the black community wants the cops to butt out from controlling lawless gangsters in their communities. The lyrics themselves seem to be decrying the terrible hard lives all blacks have. (only he used N word like fifty times) And he may only be using the gang-expression like language as a metaphor. I can’t tell though because it’s nearly incomprehensible and terrible. Like a bad tone poems as Savage says. But there’s no mistaking because he’s standing on a trashed out cop car when he performed it. At one point he says the police want to kill him. Well assuming po po is the poe-leece. His whole fucking community should want him dead, though. And do normal middle-class blacks really let their kids stay up and watch this? Seriously he’s got ni**a, fuckin and pussy in a mainstream awards show? Unreal.

    Alls my life I has to fight, nigga
    Alls my life I…
    Hard times like, “God!”
    Bad trips like, “Yea!”
    Nazareth, I’m fucked up
    Homie you fucked up
    But if God got us
    Then we gon’ be alright

    [Chorus: Pharrell Williams]
    Nigga, we gon’ be alright
    Nigga, we gon’ be alright
    We gon’ be alright
    Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon’ be alright
    Nigga, we gon’ be alright
    Huh? We gon’ be alright
    Nigga, we gon’ be alright
    Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon’ be alright

    [Verse 1]
    Uh, and when I wake up
    I recognize you’re lookin’ at me for the pay cut
    But homicide be lookin’ at you from the face down
    What Mac-11 even boom with the bass down
    Schemin’, and let me tell you ’bout my life
    Painkillers only put me in the twilight
    Where pretty pussy and Benjamin is the highlight
    Now tell my momma I love her but this what I like, Lord knows
    20 of ’em in my Chevy, tell ’em all to come and get me
    Reapin’ everything I sow, so my karma come
    And heaven no preliminary hearing, so my record
    I’m a motherfuckin’ gangster in silence for the record
    Tell the world I know it’s too late
    Boys and girls, I think I gone cray
    Drown inside my vices all day
    Won’t you please believe when I say

    Wouldn’t you know
    We been hurt, been down before
    Nigga, when our pride was low
    Lookin’ at the world like, “Where do we go?”
    Nigga, and we hate po-po
    Wanna kill us dead in the street fo sho
    Nigga, I’m at the preacher’s door
    My knees gettin’ weak, and my gun might blow
    But we gon’ be alright

      Now, if that song was about ending the holocaust of black-on-black gun violence, it would be well-placed and powerful. Being about a non-existent “white po-po on po’ black folk” war, it’s just asinine. But that’s what you get, with the race-baiters pumping up their constituents 24/7, with avid assistance from the self-identified Liberal MSM.

    Not to brag or nothin’, but we are #1. The best state. Sorry, also-rans. 🙂–america/29434215/

    Confirmed: Michigan is America’s #1 state
    Thrillist ranked every state in America based on everything, and Michigan’s smack-dab at the top of the list

    If you live in Michigan, congratulations: You live in the best state in America!

    At least that’s according to Thrillist, which ranked all 50 states based on everything possible in “The Definitive and Final Ranking of all 50 States.”

    No, this is not a scientific study. No, there’s no hardcore data proving why Michigan’s the best state. We know it’s up for interpretation. Kevin Alexander and Matt Lynch, the writers of this ranking, even admit: “As this is the Internet, we expect disagreements.”

    But you know what? Since this is 4th of July week, this is still a great time to focus on the great things Michigan offers that other states don’t, such as the most coastline in the mainland United States, incredible breweries within driving distance of each other, an Upper Peninsula which almost feels like a totally separate state in itself — and even the Motor City is on the rise.

    “Far too much of the Michigan narrative centers on Detroit and its many issues,” Alexander and Lynch wrote. “The Motor City’s become a scrappily rising underdog you can’t help but root for, but Michigan’s greatest strengths lie in the state as a whole.

    “Did you know Michigan has more coastline than any state other than Alaska? Did you know it has such an embarrassment of beer riches that you can easily hit Bell’s and Founders in the same afternoon? Did you know the UP is so remote and uniquely beautiful that it almost feels like a secret 51st state where they inexplicably love British meat pies? Did you know most residents are more than happy to apologize for Kid Rock?

    “If you answered yes to at least three of these than you already understand Michigan’s charms. If you answered no to these questions, you should listen to the dulcet tones of Michigan tourism pitchman Tim Allen and get yourself there immediately.”

    Thrillist already ranked Michigan the 4th-best state for beer last August, behind Colorado, California and Oregon. It also ranked Michigan 20th in its food and drink selection.

    We have a few more things to add to the list of why this state’s so awesome: Michigan is home to the greatest sports city in the country (where else can you find four major pro sports teams *and* two competitive college sports programs?), you can point out where you live just by showing people your hand, the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, the birthplace of Motown, the world’s largest Christmas store (Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth) and Traverse City cherries.

    The rest of the top 10 states, in order, according to Thrillist: Maine, Kentucky, Wisconsin, Louisiana, Hawaii, Minnesota, Washington, California and Colorado.

    The worst state in the union? Yep, that would be Florida. And Ohio, labeled by Thrillist as “the Florida of the North,” is right near the bottom at 48th.
