David Brumer is an executive committee member of StandWithUs/Northwest and the Seattle chapter of the American Jewish Committee. He is one of Seattle’s leading enforcers for the pro-Israel right, making sure that anyone dissenting from the party line gets a good whack in the shins. While I was always under the impression that social workers were practitioners of the healing arts, he also serves in that capacity at the Jewish federation funded Kline Galland Home which, aside from his employment there, actually has a good repuation for geriatric care.
Brumer has made it his business to smear me with epithets like “deranged,” and suggested I may be “fascinated” with gay porn, and that I should be spanked for my supposed hostility to Israel. But now Brumer’s acolytes have gotten into the act. Someone posting here as Brum Speaks has published scores of smutty comments here which I think the world should see. Given the IP address, this probably isn’t Brumer himself (he may be a bully but he isn’t that stupid). But this genius clearly is a devout follower of Brumer and his blog since he gives the impression that he speaks in Brumer’s name and offers a link to that font of Jewish blogging wisdom.
Unfortunately, no one in either the federation or Kline Galland Home leadership seems concerned enough about this to rein Brumer in. Which says a great deal about the quality of local leadership and its willingness to turn a blind eye to such bizarre behavior.
