Who paid for the New York Times April 25 antisemitic cartoon?

The NY Times has declared war on the Jews, and it is time to strike back. The line has been crossed. The Jews of America can see who their lethal enemy is and decide that it is time to act.

New York Times Washington bureau chief Arthur Krock enthusiastically abided by company policy and would not hire Jews to work in the Washington bureau from 1927 to 1953. Historian David Halberstam writes: “When he had beaten back the umpteenth attempt of New York reporter Warren Moscow to join the bureau, Felix Belair, one of Krock’s favorites in the bureau, accosted him. “There are some people here,” said Belair, “who think you’re anti-semitic.” “Well,” said Krock, “maybe I am.”

Who paid for the New York Times April 25 antisemitic cartoon that screams that Jews secretly control the president of the United States? This so-ancient blood libel was paid for by the newspaper’s New York department store advertisers.

Who paid for the New York Times’ Thomas Friedman column declaring that the only reason members of Congress stand and applaud Benjamin Netanyahu is because Jews give them money? This was financed by the many New York-area clothing and restaurant advertisers.

Who paid for the New York Times libeling Israel with claims of war crimes having been committed when a ricocheting bullet killed a rioter on the Gaza border? All of the newspaper’s specialty store and clothing advertisers

Perhaps, after the publishing of this most recent antisemitic outrage, the New York Jewish community might decide that it is time to fight back against this greatest of antisemitic newspapers, the New York Times.

And to do so, leaders of the Jewish community should be meeting with those advertisers who pay for the New York Times antisemitism to ask, “Why should we shop in your stores if you support antisemitism?”


While the New York Times might have every right to print anything it wants about Jews, so Jews have every right to boycott stores that pay for that antisemitism.
Some leftist supporters of the antisemitic New York Times will scream that the Jews are trampling on their freedom of the press. Well, if we have learned anything, it is that those left-wingers only demand freedom of press and speech when it is supportive of their own radical positions.

Otherwise, they are just a 21st century variety of authoritarian Stalinists.

While the New York Times might have every right to print anything it wants about Jews, so Jews have every right to boycott stores that pay for that antisemitism in the New York Times.

How many of these advertisers depend upon the Jewish community to purchase products in their stores?

Unfortunately, we Jews never learn from the very history we claim to embrace.

Barack Obama had the Jews in his pocket, and paid them back with the most overtly anti-Israel administration since the founding of the Jewish state.

The Democratic party is guaranteed an obscenely overwhelming Jewish vote at every election, and Jewish donors make up the majority of the party’s donations. The Democrats show their gratitude to the Jews by becoming the home of the new progressive antisemites.

And catastrophically, Franklin Delano Roosevelt held the Jewish vote in his pocket, and thus had no reason to respond to demands to save the Jews of Europe.

And the New York Times, whose most loyal readership are the New York area’s Jews, has repeatedly paid them back with over 100 years of antisemitism.

Meetings should be held in synagogues to rally the Jews to boycott New York Times advertisers. Facebook and email campaigns should begin against New York Times advertisers. Lists of advertisers should be published and posted in every synagogue. Meetings with these advertisers should be held to explain where their advertising money is going.

The line has been crossed. The Jews of America can see who their lethal enemy is and decide that it is time to act. And striking at New York Times advertisers is the best way to land a blow for Jewish freedom.
