Rightwing Sleight of Mouth or the Right tries to redefine “Blood Libel”

I’ve decided to update this post with the entire exchange. oldest tweet to last. I am ExitPass

Did you know that it’s impossible for historic terms to take on a broader meaning? So sayeth the Blood Libel obsession crowd! #TeaParty #p2
@grivno Blood Libel has a vry specific meaning. 1 that incited, & still incites anti-Jewish sentiment. It’s bn adopted by the Arab states.
@ExitPass Language is not a permanent fixture. the meaning of terms can broaden. the obsessive focus on a single term looks kinda crazy.
@grivno so, “nazi” no longer means “white supremicist“? “Christkiller” no longer means “Jew“? “Spic” no longer refers 2 “hispanics”? Gotcha
@ExitPass “racist” no longer means “one who believes his/her race is superior.” now it means “one who opposes the progressive agenda”
@grivno (cont) So,#Giffords accused Palin of “Blood Libel” when she criticized the “surveyor’s” symbol ovr her “surveyed” district as provacative?

@ExitPass the “blood” part refers to group of genetically-related people, this could expand to mean ideologically-related people

@grivno nice try. As a Jew, I KNOW whaT it means, and it means “Jews murder christians and use their blood in matzoh”. THAT’S what It means

@ExitPass I was setting up a logic framework, not dissing your intelligence. I figured U knew what it meant.

BREAKING: Twitterer Blocks Cat for Pointing Out conflation of Armed Basij Militias & ACORN

It started with this tweet:

RT @ExurbanJon: I’m not Iranian, but “Basij” appears to be the Farsi word for “acorn”. HAHAHA!

and this is what followed:

@caraellison So glad 2 know U find the shooting of unarmed citizens by CITIZEN MILITIAS funny. probly cheered Kent State, 2. asshole@caraellison U found humor in the conflation of the murderous Basij & acorn. Shame. Doesn’t matter if U wr alive when Kent State went dn…
@caraellison ….U wld had said “good job” ovr the killings. I was alive. & ppl cheered the killings…@caraellison said the students had it coming 4 peacefully protesting Vietnam. Shame for conflating murderers with acorn.

@StephenZunderfo Dude. Context. I ACORN stole elections 2. If u think I find this funy, you hvnt been reading my tweets 4 the past 24 hrs

Yes, they think ACORN STOLE elections….

Still doesn’t get it, and, blocks before this:

@caraellison Dude, ACORN isn’t shooting people. and, what election(s) did ACORN steal? links to neutral sites, plz no worldnet/breitbart.

While I don’t doubt the sincerity of this twitterer, the fact they would not explain why they found the conflation of ARMED “Citizen” Militias in the service of the State with ACORN funny, when Right Wing Extremists are murdering people at Worship and Health Care Providers in order to terrorize doctors and women into submission or are tryin gto murder people perceived to be “unAmerican” like Jews, Catholics, Unitarians,Blacks, Hispanics, Asians and anyone else not “European”(Teutonic) enough for them. These are the people that eat the offal of the likes of Hannity, Beck and Limbaugh. O’Reilly is irrelevant, and he hates that. He hates himself for being irrelevant. He hates Ailes for the buying of his soul. The others named? They gleefully sold their souls. May all their dream sbe haunted with by the victims of their hate. So, @caraellison, what elections were stolen by ACORN? Rhetorical, I know. I already know your answer.
