The hypocrisy blogger Peter Schorsch is spewing today is absolutely priceless!
The alleged Pay-For-Play Cookie Monster or Hamburglar Schorsch decided to go after former state Senator. Frank Artiles (R) on Twitter, accusing Artiles of using an anti-Semitic slur against him, forgetting his past racist tweets.
Artiles used the term “shylock” to describe Schorsch's questionable business practice that many, many lobbyists and politicos in Tallahassee believe to be dripping in shameless self-promotion and intimidation.
“If only you would stop shaking down Lobbyists and entities to pay your monthly mortgage and expenses you’d be called a Reporter, not a Shylock,” tweeted Artiles.
“Former lawmaker who left office after making racist remarks flings anti-Semitic slur at news website publisher (whose grandmother was Jewish.)”
Racial slur? Maybe, but it depends on if it was meant to be ant-Semitic, right?

How many Americans actually know the true meaning of “shylock” and have used the term to demean another individual? I am pretty sure most of you reading this post had no clue that this term could be considered anti-Semitic.
So what is a “Shylock?”
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a ‘Shylock’ is “the Jewish usurer and antagonist of Antonio in Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice.”
It is also someone who will “lend money at high rates of interest.”
But wait, now for Schorsch’s hypocrisy.
Schorsch, who wrote for the liberal Daily KOS and has been accused of statutory rape, arrested twice in 2006 and 2005 for fraud (plead guilty to writing 16 worthless checks at Publix) and accused of writing hit pieces against those who don’t pay him (TB Times), once unraveled and expressed what many could perceive as having a very racist state of mind.
By the way, @THESHARKTANK1, the redesign of your website looks like shit. An illiterate lawn boy could have done better. Oh wait...

Here is a Twitter exchange Schorsch he had with me back in 2013-2014 where he referred to me as a “lawn boy.” Racist, anti-Hispanic slur? I think so. Here is what your hard-earned dollars' support:
