Re: Ranking causes of antisemitism that lead to genocide

"Professor Greenspan has chastised me for alleging that antisemitism has been found among social democrats. He seems to believe that the demonizing of Jews is limited to ultra-Rightists such as Joseph Welch, founder of the John Birch Society."

I don't think a fair reading of my post would lead to the conclusion that I believe "demonizing of Jews is limited to ultra-Rightists."  Quite the contrary, as history has documented all too well.
