Republicans call Bolton leak Kavanaugh ‘2.0,’ as publisher denies coordination

“The moral guardrails ... have dropped”: Why anti-Semitism persists
Omar Marques/Getty Images Is anti-Semitism making a comeback? This episode of The Ezra Klein Show zooms in. “The bad days are back,” wrote Batya Ungar-Sargon in the Forward in December. “Orthodox Jews are living through a new age of pogroms. This week, as we celebrated the Festival of Lights, there were no fewer than 10 anti-Semitic attacks in the New York area alone.” Anti-Semitism is occasionally called “the oldest hatred.” It thrums across continents and eras, finding new targets for old prejudices. But where, exactly, does it come from? Why is it such a hardy weed? And why does this era feel so thick with it? Deborah Lipstadt, a professor of modern Jewish history and Holocaust studies at Emory University, is the author of Antisemitism: Here and Now. On this episode of The Ezra Klein Show, we discuss the earliest forms, tropes, and rationales for anti-Semitism and the cultural reasons for their persistence. Lipstadt explains the way right- and left-wing anti-Semitism differ and examines the charges of anti-Semitism levied against some modern politicians, like Donald Trump and Jeremy Corbyn. We talk about anti-Semitism in the age of social media and rising party polarization, and about the convergence and divergence of anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism: What distinguishes a legitimate critique of Israel from an anti-Semitism slur towards it? This episode airs on International Holocaust Remembrance Day. It’s a reminder that the very worst days lie in living memory, in an age more similar to our own than we like to admit. To learn more, here’s a lightly edited transcript of part of my conversation with Lipstadt on The Ezra Klein Show. Ezra Klein Let me start with the basic question. The perception that many have is that anti-Semitism is on the rise in America on the rise globally. Is that true? Deborah Lipstadt I can’t give you a definitive answer. But what I can tell you without doubt is that the anti-Semites feel more emboldened. They feel freer to take violent actions, to draw a swastika on the side of the building, or to knock the hat off of some of a Jewish person walking across the street. The moral guardrails which kept people from saying certain things and doing certain things have dropped down. Ezra Klein Something I’ve wondered about is the role social and international media plays in what seems like an increased prevalence of anti-Semitic sentiment. When there is an attack in New York, I know about it very quickly in California. And I know much more about the debate over anti-Semitism in the UK Labour Party than I probably would have 30 years ago. There is a way in which the globalization and digitization of media makes it easier to see something that perhaps was always there. Deborah Lipstadt I agree the delivery system is much quicker. I think the other thing that’s happened is the concept of “lone wolf” has become an anachronism — it no longer applies. The murderer in Pittsburgh, the murderer in San Diego, and even the murderer in Christchurch, New Zealand, all were citing the same sources and the same modus operandi. They may never even be sitting on the same continent, much less the same room, but they share information and details and approaches. So that’s the other thing that’s happened. Ezra Klein Let’s take a step back. What is anti-Semitism? How do you define it? Deborah Lipstadt I would say that anti-Semitism has a template with three elements: money and finance, intellect used maliciously and nefariously, and having [disproportionate] power in society. That all ties together into a conspiratorial notion of the Jew wanting to do evil — to use their financial ability and their cunning and their power against non-Jewish people. It helps to contrast anti-Semitism with racism. The racist looks upon the person of color as lesser — as not being smart or capable. So the racist is punching down. The anti-Semite, who’s often the same person as the racist, punches up. They look at the Jew as someone to be feared, someone with the ability to do me harm or damage. Ezra Klein How did this worldview take hold? What are the roots of it? Deborah Lipstadt Anti-Semitism is often called the longest or the oldest hatred for very good reason. I find the roots of anti-Semitism in the New Testament depiction of the crucifixion of Jesus. The way it’s told is that the Jews killed Jesus. Now, of course, Jesus was a Jew. But that’s a fact. And remember we’re sending facts aside. The Jews killed Jesus. Why? Because he wanted to change to chase the money changers out of the temple. So they’ve got your finance. Now what did they do? They went to the Romans to say, “Crucify him.” And the Romans didn’t want to do it, but then the Jews pushed and managed to convince Rome, the greatest power in the universe at the time. And they went ahead and did it. There you have the template. Over the millennia, this template was used by church leaders not only to differentiate Judaism from Christianity but to demonize the Jew. That’s where it has its roots, but it migrates. It migrates to Voltaire and Karl Marx and others and eventually to the Nazi party. That same template moves to different areas, to different places, to different outlooks. Today, you have anti-Semitism from the political right and the political left, and they both use the same template: money, power, intellect, cunning.

Denny’s is now offering Beyond Burgers nationwide
A plant-based Beyond Burger. Beyond Meat argues that plant-based burgers can replace meat and be better for the environment and for animals. | Mairo Cinquetti/NurPhoto via Getty Images Can plant-based meat keep making the jump from trial to national rollout? There’s a rhythm to plant-based meat offerings at fast-food and casual dining restaurants. First, a new company announces a plant-based offering with much fanfare and, often, lines out the door. Then the new food leaves the headlines, the restaurant jealously guards its sales numbers, and it’s hard for outsiders to tell if the launch was a success — that is, until a nationwide expansion is announced. That’s the pattern we saw with Burger King (initial launch, national launch), Qdoba (initial launch, national launch), Del Taco (first product launch, expanded product line) and Subway (initial launch, national launch). Now Denny’s is joining them. This fall, the company started offering Beyond Burgers in its Los Angeles locations. Today, it announced that the launch was “overwhelmingly successful” and that it will be offering the burgers at all Denny’s locations nationwide and in Canada, with free Beyond Burgers on January 30 to kick off the expansion. “The positive response we received validated our decision to partner with Beyond Meat to introduce our guests to a plant-based option,” John Dillon, chief brand officer for Denny’s, said in apress release. That’s corporate-speak, of course, but it’s corporate-speak for an important fact: Plant-based meat offerings are very well-received when they hit restaurants. Even once the publicity has died out, the products keep selling, making the economics make sense for a nationwide expansion. Denny’s is a full-service family dining restaurant with locations in 15 countries, including 1,700 in the US and Canada. Plant-based meat producers can point to a growing list of companies — TGI Friday’s, Dunkin’, Carl’s Jr., KFC, and McDonald’s offer products from Beyond Meat, and competitor Impossible Foods offers its options at Burger King, Little Caesars, and Qdoba among others. These bets, so far, have been paying off. Plant-based meat might help solve one of our biggest problems Plant-based meat products aren’t just another tasty menu item. Proponents argue that they’re part of the solution to a major societal problem. All around the world, many people like the taste of meat — and demand for meat products is growing. But conventional meat production can involve severe animal cruelty, promote antibiotic resistance and public health problems, and produce a lot of greenhouse gases. That, Beyond Meat founder Ethan Brown has said, is what drove him to develop an alternative protein. If plant-based meat products taste like conventional meat but are delivered to consumers in a more sustainable, climate-friendly, animal-friendly package, then consumers will get on board. A few years ago, that concept was met with a lot of skepticism. Most Americans aren’t vegan and have no intentions to change that. So how much market could there be for plant-based meat? But by now, it’s pretty clear that the answer is “a substantial one.” Lots of meat-eating Americans are still concerned about animal suffering and about the environment, and are willing to substitute plant-based burgers that increasingly taste nearly identical to meat ones. Beyond Meat and its competitors have thrived, and the restaurant deals just keep on coming. Plant-based meat remains a very small share of the food sector, and its dramatic growth last year wasn’t enough to stop meat consumption from growing, too. In the next few years, it will become clear whether plant-based meat is growing into a niche product or into a real replacement for the meat products it imitates.
