I don’t know why Jewish wingnuts like Steven Plaut or Rachel Neuwirth taunt me. They only end up making me stronger and their cause weaker. When they bragged about my S.H.I.T. listing at Masada2000, the site was down within 24 hours. When they created a fake blog to defame me within two weeks I had told the world about their harassment in a front page article in the New York Times, a column in the Seattle Post Intelligencer and a KOMO radio news story. Just after April 26th, a story about their sleazy tactics will come out in Computerworld.
But into the breach has come yet another Jewish wingnut to taunt and hector me. I feel like Nick, the narrator of The Great Gatsby, who wonders why troubled people are so drawn to him to tell him their stories. In my case, I only wish someone as interesting as Gatsby would come my way. Instead, it was the Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO). One of their supporters wrote a comment on my post about the Virginia Tech massacre in which I’d written in support of gun control:
Join us for some REAL Tikun Olam!
I could tell from the exclamation point that this jackass wasn’t telling me he was a blood brother. But I went over for a look anyway. I guess I’m a sucker for slowing down at car crashes (figuratively, that is). And I wasn’t disappointed.
The language of the site reminds me of the old Jewish Defense League. Lots of angry, borderline hysterical talk about our “enemies” out to get us and how we must at all costs defend ourselves. Guns, of course, figure prominently and obsessively in the site. But this isn’t your typical NRA site. This is a site warns that they’re coming to take away your guns and that you must be ready to stop them at all costs. Scary shit:
To destroy “gun control” and to encourage Americans to understand and defend all of the Bill of Rights for everyone.
Those are the twin goals of Wisconsin-based Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO). Founded by Jews and initially aimed at educating the Jewish community about the historical evils that Jews have suffered when they have been disarmed, JPFO has always welcomed persons of all religious beliefs who share a common goal of opposing and reversing victim disarmament policies while advancing liberty for all.
For JPFO, the cause of the Virginia Tech tragedy wasn’t the killer, but rather the University’s prohibition against carrying guns on campus! I kid you not–the screed is titled Don’t Give an Inch:
Did the rules forbidding the carrying of firearms prevent Seung Hui Cho’s senseless slaughter? Obviously not. In fact, the rules _encouraged_ his rampage because law-abiding citizens were unable to prevent Cho from completing his butchery.
The blood of those 32 innocents is on the hands of those who lobbied for victim disarmament

And don’t forget before you end your pleasant stay at the JPFO website to order some of your favorite accessories like the Gun Control is Racist bumper sticker, or your JPFO life membership pin, or your Adolf Hitler: All in Favor of Gun Control Raise Your Right Hand poster, or the United Nations logo bullseye target. And please don’t forget the Liberty Bear Coloring Book to educate the little ones in your life about their right to blow little squirrels to kingdom come. This is but a small selection of the treasure that is available almost for the asking.
JPFO also has an empowering message to our Jewish young people:
ENCOURAGE A TEEN TO REBEL
No, not rebel against Mom and Dad. But rebel against the loss of freedom.
We need America’s young people to wake up and stand tall against a frightening future. To grow towards self-reliance. To resist the temptations and snares of the coming Control State.
Our teens, on the other hand, may just want to have fun. And who can blame them?
Well, we’ve got a subversive little plan that enables you to help raise a teen’s consciousness — without work, without lectures, without strife.
Better yet, it’s fun for them — and for you.
Yes, oodles of fun.
Now, if that guy had only kept his trap shut and not tried to goad me with his comment I’d never have been the wiser about JPFO and you’d never have had the pleasure of learning of this new variety of Jewish wingnut.
