Cheapening the accusation again

You have to give it to Charles, he is consistent in his mission to cheapen the accusation of anti-Semitism. In his hands it's becoming less of a discription of anti-Jewish bigotry and more a measure of who Charles disagrees with on a daily basis.

The writer of this diary congratulates him/her/itself for criticizing Israel without being antisemitic—yet the entire purpose of this semi-literate diatribe is to question Israel’s right to exist.
Which obviously isn't anti-Semitic in the context in which the writer argues his point. Questioning the right of Jews to exist is anti-Semitic, questioning the formation of a nation on land that was essentially grabbed in a political vacuum post-WW2 isn't. But hey, if it means Charles can abuse the Kossacks, who cares if he misuses anti-Semitism and racism? Certainly not his readers.
