I have no other knowledge of the case that what I've just read in the press. Oh, and what I've learned from a recent bit of hate mail that was sent to my by a random figure named "M.D. Block". I wish I could reprint the whole thing, but here's what he thinks about OxyContin:
The "everything in bold and italics" is, indeed, original to the letter.
A recent article in THE NEW YORKER, “THE FAMILY THAT BUILT AN EMPIRE OF PAIN” - THE SACKLER DYNASTY RUTHLESS MARKETING OF PAINKILLERS HAS GENERATED BILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND MILLIONS OF ADDICTS, by Patrick Radden Keefe reveals a Holocaust to which so many Americans have been subjected.
America has been very good to Jews. Jews brought America the 9-11 Attack and OxyContin. It is past time for America to react! Overreaching by Jews resulted in the Holocaust. No lesson learned!
If Jews can compel countries to compensate Holocaust victims for billions of dollars, why can’t America compel the Sackler family to compensate the many families that have been subjected to a OXYCONTIN HOLOCAUST by paying doctors to prescribe oxycontin which is so addictive, patients are already addicted by the time they leave a hospital.
Needless to say, if any members of the Sackler family have broken the law, they deserve to be punished in accordance of the law -- which is not the same thing as saying "OxyContin -- brought to you by the Jews (along with 9/11)!"
But I confess -- this post really was a vector to show-off just how loony-tunes this letter was. Other highlights from my charming correspondent:
On Tamika Mallory:
Why should the very patriotic Ms.Mallory care what her reputation is among Jew Fools. Ms. Mallory is in her country exercising her First Amendment freedoms for which many brave people, including African Americans, excluding Jews, fought, sacrificed and died. If Jews are too fragile for our First Amendment freedoms, they should relocate to the country from which they are their people emigrated.I appreciate the political, if not grammatical, care the author took in not saying "go back to Israel".
On AIPAC and Jews in America generally:
Many Jews have not served America well: AIPAC is the Harvey Weinstein of our Hallowed Halls of Congress using corrosion and intimidation to compel members of congress to become whores for Israel. Looting American tax dollars and stealing Palestinian homes and land generate this growing notion that it would be a far, far better thing for Americans and Palestinians if America had not liberated Jews and allow them to immigrated to our Protestant country.Build that (antisemitic) Wall!
On Chuck Schumer:
This betrayal of America should preclude this insidious Jewish ingrate from serving as the Senate minority leader, a position for which he is extremely unqualified. I believe those who betrayed America’s values do not deserve to be citizens of America.In fairness, how much of my Twitter feed really disagrees with this sentiment?
On our members of Congress, generally:
So many members of congress pledge allegiance to the flag of the welfare/terrorist state of Israel and to the evil for which it stands…. They should be compelled to take their feet to where their heart is - Israel, or be confined to Guantanamo or go the way of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg.Wait, these guys get to go to Israel? That seems unfair!
On the Holocaust:
Hitler offered six million Jews to any country that would accept them - none obliged. Europeans killed Jews and were responsible for the Holocaust, not the Palestinians! European Jewish refugees went to Palestine, took homes and land that belong to the Palestinians making the Palestinians refugees. So Jews are to the Palestinians what Hitler was to them? Are Jews any less evil? Jews owned 7% of Palestine at this time. The oppressed are now the oppressors! Netanyahu is Israel’s Hitler!Hey, at least he seems to concede the Holocaust happened!
On the Bible:
A Biblical scholar recently defined the Bible as a barbaric literature for a barbaric time. Jews are synonymous with barbarism! ... Of course, Jews are guided by the God of Greed. They know no other.I've got some bad news about the contents of the Bible your "Protestant country" reads....
On Marco Rubio, Bob Menendez, and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen
Obviously it would have been a far, far better thing for America if these Cubans had become lunch for sharks en route to America.
This barely scratches the surface, but I think we should conclude with our lovely reader's concluding line:
So please display a little reverence and respect instead of contempt. The 2% of Jews in our Protestant country are outranked!
