'Jew Read Ann Alchouse's Latest Inanity?

Attention/Moisture seeker Ann Althouse is back on the crazy wagon again. She reviews Capitalism: A Love Story by the Fat One as follows:

The most striking thing in the movie was the religion. I think Moore is seriously motivated by Christianity. He says he is (and has been since he was a boy). And he presented various priests, Biblical quotations, and movie footage from "Jesus of Nazareth" to make the argument that Christianity requires socialism. With this theme, I found it unsettling that in attacking the banking system, Moore presented quite a parade of Jewish names and faces. He never says the word "Jewish," but I think the anti-Semitic theme is there. We receive long lectures about how capitalism is inconsistent with Christianity, followed a heavy-handed array of — it's up to you to see that they are — Jewish villains.

Am I wrong to see Moore as an anti-Semite? I don't know, but the movie worked as anti-Semitic propaganda. I had to struggle to fight off the idea the movie seemed to want to plant in my head.

Yes, "Jesus is a Socialist" is the most anti-Semitic premise ever told.

And addledpated Annie had to actively fight off the anti-Semitic thoughts the movie was forcing her to think against her will. Apparently, she lost the battle against the mind-controlling effects of the film Sideways -- which is the most plausible explanation for all her ravings since 2004.

Alchouse can't be bothered to offer a sober assessment of whether Moore's rogues' gallery is filled with rogues, nor does she nominate some Catholics and Baptists who Moore might have called out instead. She can't even bother to remember who Moore named checked; it's as if those names have passed out of her mind. She's simply scraped the bottom of the bottle and spewed out the last insipid dregs.

Sorry, no link to the Nuthouse. It's up to you to find that crap.
