He seems like quite the excitable fellow.

Right wingers were trying to accuse the "Jew-S-A" guy of being a liberal plant. They still can't come to terms with the fact that there are so many bigoted assholes in the GOP and that the GOP has been fostering their hate.
plenty of people hate Jews on the Left too, it's just replaced with the word "Zionism" Even Jews on the left hate Jews.
I don't think the word Zionism is code for bigotry against Jews on the left as much as it is an acknowledgement of Israel's abysmal apartheid policy against Palestinians.
Misconstruing opposition to Israel's human rights violations as "anti-antisemitism" is an old trick of the right wing to shame liberals.
Meme, where are the racist Democrats? 70 years ago. We're the good guys now.
It helps to remember that words like "bigot", "hate", and "anti-semitism" are just rhetorical devices meant to facilitate ad hominem. Rather than getting hung up on semantics about who's a liberal, who's a racist, etc, we should simply be asking: who is right?
Non-bigoted liberals like me are right.
Which liberals? Right about what? There's only one non-bigoted liberal exactly like you, and that is you - everyone else has their own set of perspectives and opinions which, though they may be similar, are bound to diverge from your own. Furthermore, the truth-value of any given proposition must be considered on its own; saying "I am right" is meaningless unless we know precisely what it is you are right about.
The day after the final debate a middle aged couple who had just flown in to the US from Israel for their first visit came in to work. I was showing them around. They'd been in the air when it was happening so the guy asked me "who won" then went on to talk about what a shame it was that us Americans are stuck with such awful choices, but that as an Israeli he also knows all about government betraying the will of the people.
Come to think of it, all of the most anti-Israeli-government people I've known are Israeli citizens or immigrants.

Someone crossed Gary Busey with Randy Quaid!
