Fake News and Murder, Inc.: The Talmud on the Megillah, Lesson 26

The chilling conversation between Haman and Achashverosh plotting a nation’s annihilation. Driven by hateful, anti-Semitic ideology, Haman deviously and skillfully misconstrues facts; twisting them to justify and advance a fascist murderous agenda. The Jewish people are framed as dissolute, lazy and decedent. Their scattered nature insulates the kingdom from financial injury, with no real drawback to mass Jewish genocide he argues. Haman concludes with identity politics, and a bribe to boot. Waiving the cash, Achashverosh needs no further convincing. (Tractate Megillah 13b)
