After averting its eyes for a week, the Canadian Jewish Congress has grudgingly acknowledged that there is anti-Semitism in Canada that is not perpetrated by ageing Indian chiefs or teenagers on Internet chat sites. They’ve called a press conference for Wednesday to talk about the bigoted pro-Hamas rallies that have been raging across Canada.
The problem with Burny and Freiman is that they don’t actually know how to fight real anti-Semites, because they’ve been fighting Internet anti-Semites for so long. It’s like the difference between playing Guitar Hero really well, and then being asked to play a real guitar. They only know how to fight “hate” on the Internet, like a video game.
