Actor John Cusack has apologised after sharing an anti-Semitic image with fans on Twitter .

 

The Hollywood star, 52, was slammed after retweeting a cartoon of a giant hand with a Star of David on the sleeve, which was crushing a crowd of people below it.

 

The meme also quoted Neo-Nazi Kevin Alfred Storm, although it attributed the quote to Voltaire instead.

 

It said: "To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize."

No, it's not, although the sentiment is not "un-Voltairian." It was most likely penned (and disseminated) by a neo-Nazi who was convicted and jailed for possessing child pornography. And, like so much other misinformation on the web, the false attribution gets passed around with abandon and taken for truth ...

From the article linked to OP

 

“He added that he had initially believed the image was criticising Israel, and didn't realise the source of the meme, or the anti-Semitic implications.”

 

Then you are an idiot.

The rise of Anti semitism and jew hating is on the rise, in the UK the Labor party is infested with jew hating anti semites and i have friends who are labor supporters who are not ashamed to spout it in public and online.

The funny thing is it is Liberals, Trump haters and the left who are the real facists and jew haters and intolerant of other all while trying to say they are fighting facists.

They really are delusional in their hatred of jews and its disgusting.

No. You are totally wrong suggesting Jew hating comes only from the left. Please stop spreading blatant lies.

 

The actual truth is that the Jew hating comes from three major sources --

 

Left wing (as you say) often thinly disguised as Israel demonization. (Of course not all criticism of Israeli government policies is that, it's usually very easy to tell the difference)

 

"Traditional" right wing / white nationalist / "Christian" cultural based Jew hatred. Most famously Nazis but that had roots in thousands of years of European history.

 

Islamist rooted

Lets be honest here 

You are one of the jew haters and just by your comment that is clear 

The ONLY PEOPLE I am seeing hating on Jews and on a REGULAR basis is Liberals and the left and especially the Labor Party and supporters of it in the UK.

As for White Nationalists KKK etc that group is so small in the USA these days it is just used as a deflection from the real root of the problem LIBERALS and of course as you say Muslims who hate jews with a passion.

I agree with you that there is antisemitism coming from the left. But hardly only from the left, and hardly all of the left is anti-Semitic. Speaking as a liberal Jew that strongly supports the right of Israel to exist and defend herself but still critical of Israeli government policies. Cheers dude. 

I already knew you were a Liberal Jew (you forgot the gay part but you can save that for another day 🙂 when it suits your agenda

My entire biography didn't seem at all relevant to this topic which is about Jews and antisemitism. The truth is that in the west it's become much more OK to be gay, and much less OK to be a Jew. Calling me a Jew hater, again, is so stupid that it's laughable. 

 

BTW, I'm not really buying Cusack's excuse.
