That provocative statement coming from The PJ Tatler at PajamasMedia as he writes about the anti-circumcision campaign brochure being disseminated by some in San Francisco:
As you may have heard by now, San Francisco will be voting this November on whether or not to ban circumcision in the city.
Defenders of the measure say it's all about "human rights" and "protecting babies" from unnecessary procedures.
But critics suspected there was something vaguely anti-Semitic about the whole proposal, since among Jews (and Muslims, as well) circumcising male babies is a religious duty, not just a mistaken medical procedure.
Ban proponents insisted their proposal had nothing to do with Jews -- really, it's all about the rights of children.
Well, any doubt that they were lying have now been dispelled, with the publication of new campaign literature for the upcoming circumcision ban. The campaign comic book, called "Foreskin Man," after its baby-saving superhero, features a litany of evil Jews doing battle with blond Nordic saviors.
A couple of tell-tale images from the comic book are below but PJ has more.
H/T to Bookworm who writes:
It's horrifying, nasty, awful, evil stuff. I read a headline today (and can't, for the life of me, figure out where), stating that antisemitism is resurgent today in a way not seen since the eve of WWII. This kind of garbage makes that claim -- a claim I don't doubt is true -- resonate with real force.
