Debbie Schlussel Victim Of Polish ‘CyberPogrom’
Jewish-conservative commentator Debbie Schlussel has become the victim of what she calls a “cyberpogrom from Poland” after writing about the Polish role in anti-Jewish atrocities committed during World War Two.
The so-called “cyberpogrom” knocked Schlussel’s website offline for the last 3 days, and many are still having problems accessing it. In an article detailing the attack, the Jewish-Zionist claims to have gotten “thousands of vile, highly anti-Semitic death and rapee threats and e-mails, tweets, and Facebook comments” from Poles furious at her column detailing Polish complicity during the Holocaust.
The original article that sparked the cyber-attack was written in response to last week’s hue and outcry from Polish leaders over U.S. President Barack Obama’s mistaken reference to “Polish death camps.” German Nazis actually ran the camps, and the issue is still a sore subject in Poland, which suffered terribly under Nazi and Soviet occupation during World War Two. President Obama has written a letter of apology to Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski for the gaffe.
Many of the messages have included pictures of her with the “Hitler” mustache Photoshopped on her face. Others are vile, crude depictions of anti-Semitism, such as the one pictured below.
In addition to the anti-Semitic comments, Schlussel says she has also gotten many anti-American messages, accusing the United States of performing a “Holocaust” on the Native-American, or Beringian, population, and being behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Other e-mails have promoted support for the Palestinian people and carried anti-Israeli sentiment.
Schlussel also claims Facebook deleted, without warning, a post on her fan page telling Poles to stop their anti-Semitic tirade. That post received more than 27,000 angry comments from Polish people.
Debbie Schlussel has refused to take down her articles.
“The Poles were complicit with the Nazis in silencing Jews during the Holocaust,” she writes. “They will not silence this Jew.”
