Anthony Lewis, Far-Left Anti-Israel JINO, RIH

By Debbie Schlussel

On Monday, former New York Times columnist Anthony Lewis died. Good riddance.


Anthony Lewis Joining His Buddy Yasser in Hell

While there are tears for him on the left and the right, those on the right who weep over this cretin are completely ignorant. No tears from me. I will never forget Tony Lewis’ legion of anti-Israel columns. This jerk was a JINO (Jew In Name Only), who seemed to relish the chance to dance on the graves of Jewish victims of Islamic terrorism. Lewis missed no chance to defend Yasser Arafat and piss on Israel and no chance to show that he enjoyed his role as anti-Semitic Jew for the “Newspaper of Record.”

It is yet another sign that “only the good die young,” as Billy Joel once sang, because Lewis lived until the ripe old age of 85, and the man was nothing short of wicked. Lewis, a regular fixture on the Sunday TV talk shows wielded enormous influence in the days before myriad cable channels and the internet. His opinion was eagerly gobbled up without question or critique by America’s elites and broadcast media. And, so, it is fitting that he died in an era in which his likes no longer holds such sway, if any sway at all, beyond a few sagging, dope-smoking vegan hippie refugees from the ’60s and early ’70s and lefty cat ladies who still watch PBS (a/k/a “Palestinian Broadcasting Service”).

While Anthony Lewis is known as the author of “Gideon’s Trumpet,” about the landmark Supreme Court case that led to court appointed attorneys for criminal defendants, I remember him as the author of countless attacks on America–whether it was his attacks on the Vietnam War, as our boys were being blown to bits on the battlefield there–or his attacks on Israel for every single problem in the Middle East. Not long after 9/11, Lewis also compared American authorities to Osama Bin Laden, as if both sides of the 9/11 attacks–the perpetrators and their targets–were morally equivalent. Even whack job Noam Chomsky said Lewis was at “the far left of the spectrum.”

I’m sure the Palestinians are bummed (at least for a quick, pretend second) that they lost this useful idiot. David Bar-Ilan, former spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, put it best when he called Lewis, “PLO booster for decades, a writer who yields to no one as an Arafat groupie.”

Lewis’ typical vitriol compared Israel to apartheid South Africa and called Jewish homes in Israel “illegal,” claiming they were on occupied territory, the typical line of today’s HAMAS and yesterday’s and today’s PLO/Fatah. He also repeatedly claimed that Jews and Israel are “provocative,” and therefore, deserving of Islamic terrorism. He was never concerned with Arab and Muslim repression, because in his world, only Israel represses anyone. That would explain Lewis’ contribution to the anti-Israel book, “The Other Israel: Voices of Refusal and Dissent,” edited by Israel-hater-from-within Tom Segev.

The man was despicable, and I, for one, am not sad to see him go. Way overdue. Anthony Lewis’ death is no loss. The sad thing is that he ever graced this earth to begin with.

Where Lewis is going he need not pack much. It’s very hot and he can finally have he love affair he clearly fantasized about with his buddy Yasser Arafat, who is also a resident.

Anthony Lewis, ROT. IN. HELL. Buh-bye.

He looks like a half wit. And, that Arafat sure was one fugly looking fag. This Lewis character is probably the type responsible for school children being taught that 9/11 was our fault.

RT on March 26, 2013 at 7:43 pm

I didn’t know this cretin ’til the ‘Gideon’s Trumpet’ reference. I read that book in a High School law class.

No shocker, my teacher was a HUGE lefty and one of two super-lefties I remember having in high school.

I like it when cretins croak. I like being glad when they are dead. Ain’t nobody got time for that! (Mourning contemptible bastards!!)

Skunky on March 26, 2013 at 11:39 pm


    As bad as we think the media environment is these days, it was far worse in the era of such as Murrow, Cronkite, Lewis and countless other leftist scum—who pretty much had their way with the public for decades.

    And, yes…The NY Times was probably even worse then, than now.

    As to Lewis’ relative longevity–Compare him to the execrable William Brennan, a “Catholic” supreme court justice, and principal architect of Roe v Wade. I believe that God let him persist past age 91 giving plenty of chances to repent.

    One can only wonder if he did.

    Red Ryder on March 27, 2013 at 8:37 am

      Well said. Cronkite especially. “The most trusted man in America?” I remember this propaganda as if it was yesterday. We can trace the beginning of what I call the “Sheeple” movement to the 60’s. Look at the results today.

      Victoryman on March 27, 2013 at 10:58 am

I DETESTED this guy. I feel terrible, because my reaction to him was visceral. Even his looks offended me. But you know what? Today, he is dead and I am alive: I win!

gmartinz on March 27, 2013 at 12:50 am

One of my reasons why I still the believe an afterlife even though I am askeptic. For the hope that these SOBs that have hurt others get their just dues in the end.

Mario on March 27, 2013 at 12:56 am

And, so, it is fitting that he [Lewis] died in an era in which his likes no longer holds such sway, if any sway at all, beyond a few sagging, dope-smoking vegan hippie refugees from the ’60s and early ’70s and lefty cat ladies who still watch PBS (a/k/a “Palestinian Broadcasting Service”).

There is one other group who are still swayed by the so-called “MSM” as Lewis exemplified: the proverbial “low-information voter” who automatically (and mindlessly) pulls the lever in the ballot box for anyone with a “D” in their name.

Can the restaurant industry sustain this loss?

Little Al on March 27, 2013 at 9:00 am

Vengeance is mine says the Lord I shall repay. It grives me this man did what eh did and rejected God. God created him in His image.

Bill Ford on March 27, 2013 at 9:29 am

This is why I check out this site daily. Thanks again.

Red Ryder, your line “who pretty much had their way with the public for decades” is all too true. That’s how we got where we are today. I was almost one of them. The Cultural Pancake Flip that began after the JFK assassination and ended around the close of 1969 swept a lot of American hearts and minds in to the murky toilet of jumbled thought processes that became the grandparents of a generation that is totally lost today. They are also the mentors of despicable Generation X-ers like The Vacationer In Chief. Yes, I know he was born during the Baby Boomer era, but the people born during the last few years of a generation actually set the cultural tone for the next. Witness that the oldest rap and Hip Hop stars were actually born during the last few Baby Boomer years. I have always noted a vast difference between the thought processes and values of people who can remember the JFK assassination and those who can’t. The ones who can’t or were too young to have any cognitive thought processes about the changes that followed, grew up in the changed world. They subsequently as adults threw the baby out with the bathwater, giving the finger to their older, more traditional Baby Boomer brethren. As well, my generation, many Baby Boomers were already well on our way toward becoming errant and increasingly acceptable of the premise that it’s okay to be a low life. And those born during the last few years of the WWII generation gave the finger to our parents, wrote books, made music and movies which influenced the culture in an increasingly depraved way, giving our WWII generation parents the finger. This paved the way for our depravity. I have discussed these value shifts, particularly with the premise of those who can and those who can’t remember the JFK assassination, with Baby Boomers and Generation X-ers alike, and have never been disagreed with. Shame on us.

I woke up slowly beginning in my late 20’s after getting involved with the Bible and encountering conservative talk radio. Had no idea there was anyone out there to confirm my gut feelings, as everyone around me in NYC where I grew up and lived until recently, all believed the same things, without really knowing why. Lots of sheeple in this country, including many very well read, educated and intelligent ones.

I was invited by a friend next door back in early ’69 at age 12 to attend a Vietnam protest march. His father was a former big shot in the Progressive Labor Party, an organization which openly promoted Communism. Their toilet paper Challenge, was given out to us all. We were told to chant “Same enemy, same fight, workers of the world unite.” There I was, 12 going on 13, and being thoroughly exposed to the influences that eventually placed George Soros’ butt boy and puppet, Barack Hussein Obama, MMM!, MMM!, MMM!!! in power. Czechoslovakia had also fallen the year before, something I understand Soros’ propensity for currency manipulation was largely responsible for.

And here we are today, folks. James Brown had a song a while back called Living in America. Well James, be glad you’re not around to see we’re actually living in AfrolabadSouthAmerAsiexico, a thoroughly divided nation. Divide and conquer, no?

I wound up in two of those peace marches, surrounded by people from the PLP and all around us hippies and organizers from other groups, perhaps the SDS, Weathermen, who knows? Thousands upon thousands of people. I never did get with the idea of spitting on Vietnam vets, though. I always maintained a healthy and thorough respect for anyone who either had to or chose to serve in any branch of the military, something I know to this day I never had the personality to do. After the march, we would always go to a large hall and chow down on a huge feast of various types of food, while listening to various speakers rail against “the establishment,” America and capitalism. I was a wide eyed, confused kid, having begun my life in an age of innocence, and winding up in a NYC which was on the cutting edge of The Cultural Pancake Flip.

I will never forget some of the stuff I inquisitively and thoroughly read in the PLP’s toilet paper, Challenge. “30 hours work for 40 hours pay,” which I understand today has been changed to 25 hours work by their descendant organizations. Article after article decrying the evils of capitalism, the “white power structure” and on and on. People who think Communism is not behind much of what is wrong with our nation and world today need to reeducate themselves. It’s just not spoken of in those terms. But the Communist ideal of subverting our culture has indeed been reached.

We have been badly divided, and are already conquered. Debbie’s article on Female Genital Mutilation is thoroughly disgusting. I have first hand experience with such cases in my former occupation as a legal assistant, having to type the detailed text of such accounts from West African immigrants who were subjected to this brutal process at a very young age. To know that practice is also part of the invasion of our culture makes me cringe.

Jesus said “Satan is The God of this world.” The word “world” can also be correctly interpreted as “age.” He is indeed. Whether you believe Messiah has not yet come or as I do, that He already did and is coming again, he can’t come soon enough for me. Jesus also said “unless you hate your life in this world, you cannot be worthy of God’s Kingdom.” Even though I have been reading the Bible for over 28 years, and have read three different English translations cover to cover 28 times, it took me a long time to get that statement. Well, I’ve been hating my life and the conditions of the society around me quite thoroughly for about a decade. He can’t come soon enough for me.

And THAT Red Ryder, and other good folks here on this site, is just another observance of this reporter’s look through our history and how we got here.

God bless Debbie and keep her safe. God bless you all. Have a wonderful day. I have to go swing machetes, hatchets and pull thistle and other invaders out of the fields in the 90+ tropical sun.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on March 27, 2013 at 11:26 am


    Poignant observations. Well done!

    Red Ryder on March 27, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    Alfredo, Bravo! Just Bravo. I enjoyed every word of your post!

    You mentioned something in your text that gives me great hope. If you’re correct, I am on the right track. Thank goodness because being on the right track is not always the fun track.

    I always admire peeps who have been Conservatives from day one. They always got it. BUT that being said, one can learn A LOT from former lefties. It’s one thing to look at the mud and hate it and a whole ‘nother ball of wax to have been in mud and be able to tell everyone how crappy it is.

    Thank you AFPR!

    Skunky on March 27, 2013 at 6:42 pm

The N.Y.T., unfortunately, has a new self-hating, popular, Jewish successor. His name is Thomas Freidman.

fbs on March 27, 2013 at 3:33 pm

I stopped reading the New York Times years ago. (This is the newspaper that put the first report of the Holocaust on page 13)

PaulaMalka on March 27, 2013 at 6:33 pm

Couldn’t stand this guy. Despicable, just like the NYT.

BethesdaDog on March 27, 2013 at 7:49 pm

Wow, thank you folks for your compliments. And yes, I wasn’t always a conservative, except deep inside my gut perhaps. But during The Cultural Pancake Flip, especially as a blond haired, blue eyed, pasty white boy growing up in various NYC ghetto neighborhoods, I turned in to a cackling yellow chicken, spouting all the go along to get along crap, and continued that way until turning to The Bible on 9/10/84 and later discovering conservative talk radio circa 1990-91.

When I realized that the hosts and the bulk of their caller base were saying things that I had always felt and believed down deep inside, I was astounded. What garden or field did such people sprout from? I developed an ideological spine, and also began to develop a knowledge base. Up to that point in my life, I had no real knowledge base, and was one of those people who always eschewed politics. Whatever the crowd in the room I was in seemed to accept, I went along with. And in NYC, we all know what that is, and was.

Upon discovering Debbie this past December, after Track and Field News couched one of her columns in a headline of their own that angered me, I signed up for her daily updates, and read the articles here daily.

I’m not a big participant type, but I like the reading here very much. Lots of food for thought among the membership base. In person I’m woefully inarticulate, really nothing but The Resident Dumb Blond(e), but I can express well with the written word.

Thanks again. I appreciate the compliments very much, and look forward to the reading and discourse here.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on March 27, 2013 at 8:21 pm

Enjoying anyone’s death is a sad thing to do. And to say Lewis was anti-Israel because he didn’t lockstep with Bibi is very stupid. Same goes for equating criticism of some of our country’s war tactics with anti-Americanism is very, very stupid. Very.

John P MacKenzie on March 27, 2013 at 10:37 pm

    Bibi was a child when Lewis was cheering for Arafat, dummy. If you don’t know your history, and you don’t know the person involved, then you can only comment in an ignorant way.

    Now, I have worked with several Scotsmen, and all of them were ignorant Jew-hating Muslim lovers, who couldn’t understand why Glasgow got bombed. Why is that?

    Occam's Tool on March 31, 2013 at 3:38 pm


Anthony Lewis was considered anti Israel because he provided support and encouragement to the people trying to destroy it ( most notably Arafat) while never missing an opportunity to attack Israel and trying to undermine its ability to defend itself. Lewis engaged in this conduct during the Labor party and/ or liberal governments of Rabin and Peres and Barak and Olmert and during the Likud led governments of Begin, Shamir, Netanyahu and Sharon. It did not matter who led Israel or what their policies were.

Der Frager on March 28, 2013 at 6:06 am

Exactly, Der Frager. This is something I have alluded to in posts on other threads. In addition to my longwinded initial post on this thread, one other drum that has been beaten for nearly half a century by the left in this country, is that besides America’s superpower status being “unfair” in the world, that our “unbalanced support” of Israel’s military needs to cease.

Jews in NYC have done a 180 degree turn since I was a child with regard to their views on Israel, and because so many of them see the New York Slimes as having journalistic god status, whatever the “literary geniuses” of the Slimes were able to get in to print became a principal talking point.

We are poised on the brink of destruction of the U.S. from within, and with Israel surrounded by myriad nations who would like nothing better than to wake up and notice that it has been wiped off the map, views such as this man Lewis held are frightening.

When I was a child growing up, I never thought that I would have slavery to look forward to in my old age. I also never imagined that ‘kill the Jews and everything will be alright with the world’ would become the marching order yet again.

I guess that old line about those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat it is coming true all over again. But this time, it will not be a world rebuilding itself from the ashes of WWII. This will take far more than a Marshall Plan, it will take nothing short of God Himself to raise humanity from the ash heap of The Great Tribulation.

I think anyone who takes issue with Debbie’s approach to the news of Mr. Lewis’ death is being rather trite. I guess people who spend decades trying to bring down an entire people who have been despised throughout human history, especially their OWN people, is okay, huh?

I say, . . .


Whatever happened to that?

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on March 28, 2013 at 10:44 am

this guy had a teeth and gene defect

jerry1800 on March 28, 2013 at 5:33 pm

Lewis was far-left and anti-Israel. But then Rabin, Peres, Bibi, Birdbrain Livni, etc., etc., etc., unbelievably, are anti-Israel as well as anti-Jewish.

skzion on March 28, 2013 at 6:21 pm

Am Yisrael chai!

Ernest on March 29, 2013 at 12:00 am

Hoo boy! Talk about a “Journalist” (in name only) that I did NOT like!

He was a propaganda mouthpiece for the PLO and numerous anti-Semites who loved him because they could hide behind his Jewish ancestry. He gave anti-Semites the right to say: “See! I’m not an anti-Semite. Even the Jews say it.”

There is NO Santa Claus on March 29, 2013 at 8:56 am

It’s very hot and he can finally have the love affair he clearly fantasized about with his buddy Yasser Arafat, who is also a resident.

Anthony Lewis, ROT. IN. HELL. Buh-bye.

Debbie, with all due respect, and I have plenty for you, I wish you’d drop “cat lady” as an epithet. Philippa has been dead for more than 17 months and I still miss her.
