An outpouring of hate from the Left

Just listen to it:
"As the list of Madoff's "victims" grows, their common characteristic is not philanthropy, but rather political Zionism. Virtually all have worked to build a Jewish state with little regard, and often downright hatred, for the non-Jewish population living there.

The money from this type of mogul or "ganzer macher" has been used to dehumanize and depopulate non-Jews in Palestine for over 120 years. But in spite of creating a strong Israeli economy based on guns, diamonds, and security services and in spite of walling Arabs in Bantustans in the West Bank and in the KZ lager known as Gaza, they have failed. Non-Jews outnumber Jews within the borders controlled by Israel, which makes a mockery out of calling it a Jewish state.

Schadenfreude is defined to be largely unanticipated delight in the suffering of another which is recognized as well deserved. Political Zionism deserves scorn and derision; it is racist and antithetical to what Americans profess to hold self-evident: that all men and women are created equal and that we should share equal rights of citizenship. When rich Zionists lose a piece of their portfolios, especially to the guile of one of their own, it is a delight.

The press was first to report Madoff's pilfering of the Robert Lappin "Charitable" Foundation, an organization whose "mission is helping to keep our children Jewish, thus reversing the trend of assimilation and intermarriage." If the reader has trouble seeing the blatant racism here, substitute "White" for "Jewish" and imagine it was the stated goal of the David Duke Charitable Foundation.

While Mr. Burston found Madoff's bilking of "fellow Jews, even Holocaust survivors" particularly outrageous, there are those who find divine justice in seeing one fraud defraud another. Elie Wiesel and his Foundation for Humanity would certainly qualify. Here is a man who has made millions peddling his narrative on the deaths of Jews in World War II; his novel, Night, is mandatory reading for most high school students; questioning it in any way invites charges of "anti-Semitism" and "Holocaust Denial." He has been feted by Presidents and holds dozens of honorary degrees. If there were a CEO of the Holocaust Industry (a term coined by Norman Finkelstein), surely it would be The Great Weasel.

Whereas the article suggests substituting "white" for "Jewish", another interesting substitution can be made: In the last paragraph cited, substitute "global warming", "climate change", and Al Gore for the references to "anti-Semitism", "Holocaust", and Elie Wiesel and see how it reads.

Notice how they raise the morality of Schadenfreude...

From the article:
Schadenfreude is defined to be largely unanticipated delight in the suffering of another which is recognized as well deserved.

The only reason for a leftist to define a dictionary word is that they want you to get their personal form of definition rather than the actual definition.

In other words the purpose is to redefine the word to mean what they want it to mean to prove their contextual point by changing contexts rather than be valid or truthful

The defintion of in the dictionary:
satisfaction or pleasure felt at someone else's misfortune. - Random House Unabridged Dictionary

"malicious joy in the misfortunes of others," 1922, from Ger., lit. "damage-joy," from schaden "damage, harm, injury" (see scathe) + freude, from O.H.G. frewida "joy," from fro "happy," lit. "hopping for joy," from P.Gmc. *frawa- (see frolic).

delight in another person's misfortune

in checkig many sources, i didnt find the social justice version of schadenfreude that this author uses!!!

in fact, its not about expectedness, nor is it about justice, its quite the opposite. its the description of the joy of spite and other negative feelings.

it reminds me of the communist joke about the two farmers in which one finds a magic lamp. and so he rubs the lamp and the genie comes out and says. i can grant you anything and everything that you can wish for, what will it be master. and the soviet says "i want my neighbors cow to die", which sums up a lot about things.
