What Anti-Semitism Problem in Traddery?

Simcha Fisher really sums up what happened in the shocking circus that erupted in her comboxes yesterday:

If I could just briefly recap what happened in my combox today:
I wrote an article saying, “You know, when you go around smearing poop on your head all the time, you smell bad.”
150 commenters then eagerly leaped up, smeared poop on their heads, and said, “Ha-HA! What do you say to THAT, Ms. Fischer?”
Um, you win? I guess?

There are lots of examples from that festival of insane, vicious, and paranoid Jew-hatred, rationalization, denial, anti-semitic tropes about the stingy Jews and how it never happened and besides they deserved it, but I think I’ll just let this one stand as the ne plus ultra of what so many self-identified Traditionalists showed up to say:

You are pro-abortion and pro-sodomy because it’s popular and if it were popular to kick kikes around, you would be the coyest kike kicking cheer leader at the Catholic Register.

Traditionalism’s greatest enemies are found within Traddery, not in some shadowy conspiracy outside it.

No.  Really.
