Dingell: What's Wrong With Hezbollah?
Powerline ^ | July 31, 2006 | John Hindraker

Posted on 07/31/2006 4:09:43 PM PDT by Lonesome in Massachussets

Yesterday, Representative John Dingell of Michigan appeared on a Detroit television program along with Republican Candice Miller. They discussed the crisis in Lebanon; Dingell proclaimed himself neutral. "I don't take sides for or against Hezbollah; I don't take sides for or against Israel." Asked, "You're not against Hezbollah?" Dingell answers, "No..."

Listen to it here on YouTube, or use our player below.

If the Democrats win control of the House of Representatives, Dingell will be the Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. He was one of the eight Democrats who did not vote in favor of the Congressional resolution supporting Israel in its conflict with Hezbollah.

Speaking as a Goyim, it baffles me that Jews continue to throw their support behind the antisemite party. Moral posturing is a childish vanity, unbecoming in responsible adults.

So I guess Democrats will boycott any congressional speeches by Dingell, walk out on him, demand he apologize, demand he clarify his position, demand he retract, blah, blah, blah just like they did with Iraqi PM Malaki last week. Right?

Dumbing down? LOL, we've hit rock bottom already. Dingell can't see any difference between Hezbollah and Israel. Wow...

Dingell represents a Detroit area district with a high concentration of Arabs who are not pro-Israel. Doesn't excuse his sentiment, but might explain his choice of words...

That should be "Speaking as a Goy..." (Goy, singular; Goyim plural. - Yiddish posting police, probationary member..., (: >)

BTW, speaking as a Jew, I am as disgusted as you are with any Jew or Christian else supporting Congressman Dingleberry.

John Dingell could praise Jeff Daimler's cooking skills and get reelected. Besides there are a lot more Muslims in his districts then Jews.

It's the dumbing down
of the whole world. Hezbollah
is an "NGO" --

Non-Governmental
Organization. So-called
"smart" people love those.

"Smart" people prefer
NGO's to nation-states
because NGO's

can be run top-down
like a business, not shackled
to politics or

age-old traditions
of citizen-rule. So, yeah,
the self-styled "elites"

prefer Hezbollah
to Israel. Hezbollah
they think's the future . . .

One of the problems is that the media throws out conservatives, Buchanan comes to mind, that say the same thing. Anti-war, anti-Bush, but a political conservative. The current Gibson dust up, he's described as a conservative. Anti-war, anti-Bush, but a conservative none the less. Not everyone pays attention beyond the evening news, lot's don't get that far.

As a Catholic I suggest you may want to widen your disgust beyond Congressman Dingleberry to just about everybody with a (D)after their name. I'm sure by now you have probaly reached the same conclusion.

The Democratic Party is seems more hospitable to knuckledragging antisemites. Pat Buchanan never goes further than saying, in effect, Hezbollah may be repulsive, but we don't have a dog in that fight.

I tend to be a "liberitarian isolationst" to the extent that such a thing isn't a contradiction in terms. (If "undocumented workers" carried their own weight, I'd be a member of the open borders crowd. )

Growing up in Queens, the local deli man and his wife had numbers tatooed on their arms. I can still feel the frission of revulsion that shot through me when my mother explained what it meant (I was about seven) and I've always been an reflexive antiantisemite since. (I guess I'm reflexively anti racist, not because I'm such a good person, but I find racism silly. I judge people as individuals rather than as representives of ethnic or racial groups.)

Without a doubt they are. Democrats aren't antisemitic, but they're tolerant of it within their political organization. Irrespective of what you think of Pat, he's not a Republican. Hasn't been for over a decade. To anyone but the media.

True. In a political context, neither Pat nor Mel have a role, Dingell is a democratic leader.

As opposed to semihourly? Remember, Kerry is my more moderate senator. My congressman never does TV because Democratic incumbency is lifetime tenure, like civil service, or the papacy.

Democrats aren't antisemitic...

Well, not to paint with a broad brush, but I don't recall any Republican (other than Buchanan, who, as you said, has left the GOP because he's not welcome) running for or serving as president or running for or serving in either house of Congress making an antisemitic remark or gesture publicly in my lifetime. Contrast that with Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, James Moran, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Ernest Hollings, the afformentioned John Dingell, Charlie Rangel, Cynthia McKinney, Ron Dellums, Gus Savage, and a list almost too long to spell out.
