How the Left uses children’s art in the war against the Jews *UPDATED*

Me, at Pajamas Media:

I challenge you to find a news report with more layers, all of them misleading, than an ostensibly unbiased San Francisco Chronicle “news” article about a canceled art exhibition at the Museum of Children’s Art in Oakland, California. The story’s core is uncomplicated: The museum agreed with an organization called the Middle East Children’s Alliance to showcase art that Palestinian children created. In response to protests, the museum halted the exhibit.

Through a magical combination of ambition, distraction, uglification, and derision, though, Chronicle readers are left believing that children in Gaza, after suffering horrible abuse at Israeli hands, are now victims of American Jewish censorship. (Of course, Chronicle readers, already primed with a steady diet of this kind of reporting, probably started out believing this statement to be true, so this most recent story is just fuel to an already raging fire.)

Chronicle staff writer Jill Tucker begins her report by saying that the museum, “citing pressure from the community,” canceled the exhibit, which was to have consisted of drawings that Gazan children created in the wake of the 2008 war. The pictures’ subject matter included “bombs dropping, tanks and people getting shot.” Barbara Lubin, spokesperson for the Middle East Children’s Alliance, the organization sponsoring the exhibit, validated the drawings on the ground that they represent the children’s “experience.”

UPDATE:  Kidkaroo’s link to a report about another child indoctrination program, this one in antisemitic Norway, reminds us that this is a worldwide problem.

    Just prior to reading your excellent article I came across this re an anti-Israeli children’s book from Norway. From that blog’s comment section comes this jewel. The problem is not that Jews run America. The problem is that Jew-haters run Europe.

    One of the reasons why I became fascinated with propaganda after 2001 is because while killing people was very effective, it was a one time deal and any psychological effect it had would eventually downgrade to something else (degrade). But propaganda operations that could sustain themselves using fictions and truths layered over each other, those could go on for generation after generation, and it would NEVER USE UP its capital or resource base. I found that, on a logistical level, to be very interesting.
