F&H: Anti-Tax Anti-Semites

From Fox & Hounds Daily:

There’s always some nut jobs out there who need to hang onto the good intentions of others to make their case.  Witness California GOP Chairman Ron Nehring’s blast Monday against anti-Semitic graphics being displayed on-line in support of an anti-tax TEA bag event in San Mateo last week

It seems to me that you don’t have to be a Republican to be offended by the crude, if effectively designed graphic:

“The image pictured a bucket of money being poured into a funnel with a Star of David on it, which in turn drips blood into a bottle where a person holding a Palestinian flag is seen drowning in blood.
