New York Times Apologizes for Anti-Semitic Cartoon After Backlash
Just when you thought the leftist media couldn't get any more douchetastic, they come out with this. The New York Times is in hot water after they published a political cartoon depicting Benjamin Netanyahu as a sinister dog leading a blind Donald Trump.
I kid you not:
The New York Times Opinion section on Saturday apologized for a political cartoon that included anti-Semitic tropes.
The image, published in the international print edition of Thursday’s paper, featured Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a guide dog wearing a Star of David collar leading President Trump, who is wearing a skullcap and dark glasses.
“The image was offensive, and it was an error of judgment to publish it,” the newspaper said in a tweet. “It was provided by The New York Times News Service and Syndicate, which has since deleted it.”
Here's a picture of the cartoon in question:

Yep, that's a caricature of Bibi as a dog with a large nose with flared nostrils and a devious look on his face. This would easily pass for a propaganda poster during the Third Reich. Goebbels is surely smiling up at the creator of this cartoon from his fire pit in hell.
Now, just imagine the shock from the left if a right-leaning publication came out with something like this. You would never hear the end of fire-eyed leftist screeching. "See, conservatives are evil, no goo Nazi scum!" Except, all the flak toward our yarmulke-clad amigos seems to be coming from the left. Interesting.
Things like this cartoon are making it clear the left is the side of anti-Semitism. As if electing blatant anti-Semites as congresswomen wasn't evidence enough. If the left is truly concerned with finding the persons responsible for this tide of anti-Semitism, they need only to find the nearest mirror.
