Goldfarb: Obama has a ‘long track record of being around anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and anti-American rhetoric.

 

This afternoon, CNN’s Rick Sanchez confronted the McCain campaign blogger Michael Goldfarb about its hypocritical criticism of Sen. Barack Obama’s (D-IL) links to Rashid Khalidi. After Sanchez noted that McCain, as chairman of the board at the International Republican Institute, had also given Khalidi nearly $500,000, Goldfarb brushed him off, saying that Obama had a “long track record of being around anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and anti-American rhetoric”:

GOLDFARB: Look you’re missing the point again Rick. The point is that Barack Obama has along track record of being around anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and anti-American rhetoric.

SANCHEZ: Can you name one other person that he hangs around with who’s anti-Semitic? … We got Khalidi on the table, give me number two. Who’s the other anti-Semitic person that he hangs around with?

GOLDFARB: Rick, we both know who number two is.

Goldfarb could not or refused to name the individual who he was referring to, despite Sanchez’s repeated inquiries. Watch it:
