Far left Australian blogger laments American anniversary missed

An often inaccurate Australian journalist of sorts – former Asian Correspondent contributor Jeremy Sear, aka An Onymous Lefty, aka Anonymous Lefty, aka Melbourne Lefty, who continues to contribute at Crikey, where "standards are high" – links to a fellow lefty's blog post supposedly damning Israel, the U.S. and head-in-the-sand-media:

40th Anniversary of Sinking of US ship by Israel ignored.

Had Sear actually read the linked post he'd know that Israel attacked the USS Liberty but did not sink it. Sear should also know that despite the tremendous advances in military technology over the past 40 years, targeting errors still occur, so it's not at all surprising that in 1970 the USS Liberty might indeed have been attacked in error.

Read lefty bloggers at your peril, they're continually wrong.

The USS Liberty has been a popular meme for antisemites keen to destroy US support of Israel.

It was friendly fire and a major fuckup, but still an accident by Israel. The NSA released radio intercepts which confirmed this, however like most antisemitic memes, it will never be enough to convince some people. After all, the Jeeeew also controls the NSA, right?

Looks like Sear's openly embracing conspiracy theories now. When will we hear his theories about how the Jews did 9/11?
