Occupy Wall Street has continuously been accused of anti-Semitism since the movement's inception in September 2011. While some could argue that these instances are merely anecdotal, The Blaze has documented them and, at the least, they constitute a disturbing pattern that's worth addressing.
This week, as The Algemeiner noted, there's a new anti-Jewish Occupy story brewing after the group's Facebook page hosted a curious image. The picture, which has now been removed, is a cartoon showing a Jewish man driving a car -- but it's not just any vehicle.
In his right hand, the man is holding a stick shift with President Barack Obama's head on it. This is apparently an attempt to showcase that the Israeli state has complete control over the American government. Then, the steering wheel is the United Nations' official symbol -- again, an attempt to show Israel as having dominion over and "driving" the international community.
Here's how The Algemeiner describes the situation surrounding the image that was posted on the Occupy Tampa Facebook page:
A community page claiming to be associated with Tampa Florida’s Occupy Wall Street chapter published a shocking photo on its Facebook page Thursday morning. However, according to a member of Occupy Tampa’s communications department, the Facebook page is not officially sanctioned by the movement in Florida and the post was not made by Occupy Tampa.
“We’ve asked people to leave Occupy Tampa for doing the kinds of things that we are now being accused of doing as a movement,” a spokesman told The Algemeiner. “This is not a post made by Occupy Tampa.”
See the picture, below:
As of this morning, the image has been removed and is no longer available. The picture first attracted attention on Thursday.
