I missed this Jonah Goldberg piece at The Corner earlier this week. (Hat tip: RelapsedBlog/Relapsed Catholic)
GAYS=JEWS — The Corner at NRO
Central to the anti-Semitic narrative is the Jews’ longevity as an intact people. There’s no enduring gay tribe, is there? Can you simply swap out the stereotype of Jews as financiers and predators of capital in favor of the stereotype of gays as interior decorators and hair-dressers and have anything similar to anti-Semitism? Is there a gay diaspora? I’ve heard the argument that homosexuality behaves like a religion, does this mean that Yglesias and Sullivan buy into it? Or do they want to claim all the benefits of playing this particularly powerful bigotry card without carrying any of the burdens of the analogy?
I’m anxious to hear your thoughts on this debate….
