Is that a Bark hot dog, or Hebrew National?

We already know how Andrea Peyser feels about the Park Slope Food Co-op’s proposed boycott of Israeli goods, but now an even bigger inorganic bloviator has weighed in: Glenn Beck.

The gonzo radio host was in Crown Heights for a fundraiser for a a Jerusalem museum where he took a moment to attack the co-op as anti-Semitic, according to The Brooklyn Paper.

“What is happening with the food co-op where they are seriously considering a boycott of Israel?” he said, likening the suggested ban to a subtle version of drawing swastikas. “When you use words like ‘I’m just anti-Israel’ or ‘I’m just anti-Zionist’ — that’s anti-Semitic.”

We imagine he then wheeled out his chalkboard and sketched out the web of deceit radiating out from the co-op. As Brooklyn has long know, the seemingly harmless grocery store is really the seat of the worldwide Illuminati.

This is not the first time Mr. Beck has set his sights on Brownstone Brooklyn. Two years ago, he actually admitted to enjoying some of the Slope’s culinary delights, specifically those at the cherished Chip Shop.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
