CiF watch

Andrew Anthony's new book, The Fallout, was always going to cause a stir on the pages of Comment is Free, but the following line of attack, from a commenter called 'travblonski' was a new one on me.
You guys can never hide who you sympathize with or who benefits from your work. "You only had to look at the responses when some contributor dared to question the liberal-left shibboleths" Shibboleth - The term originates from the Hebrew word שבולת, which literally means "stream, torrent" There are not any English words that you can use to express yourself in the same way huh? Or Spanish, German, French, Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Tagalog, or Esperanto? That seems odd.

All of you guys have a problem. It is necesary for you to use buzzwords like holocaust or shibboleth to identify you to your betters as a loyal subject. But those buzzwords identify you to the rest of us as quislings.
There you have it. The use of the word shibboleth identifies you as a Jew. And we know what 'those guys' are up to.
