CiF anti-Semitic comment of the day

On the “Lauren Booth’s Conversion to Islam” thread was this comment:

And then this reply:

Hmmm….seems that LucyQ subscribes to the view that the descendants of superstitious nomadic goat herders control Hollywood and the U.S. media.

Interestingly, LucyQ’s profile on CiF lists The Richard Dawkins Foundation as her recommended website. “Richard Dawkins” describe their mission as follows:

“The mission of the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science is to support scientific education, critical thinking and evidence-based understanding of the natural world in the quest to overcome religious fundamentalism, superstition, intolerance and human suffering.”

Funny, isn’t it, how a proud adherent to a foundation devoted to “critical thinking and evidence-based understanding” which seeks “to overcome…superstition [and] intolerance” can subscribe to such reactionary and irrational anti-Semitic tropes about Jewish control.
