Skip to comments.Dingell: What's Wrong With Hezbollah?
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.
Witness the dumbing down of America.
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?
The world is in a watershed moment...watch the supporters of Israel ride the wave to the "right."
Dumbing down? LOL, we've hit rock bottom already. Dingell can't see any difference between Hezbollah and Israel. Wow...

The Dems may be going for the Mel Gibson vote.
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...
God help America if the rats ever gain power. The rats are like this from top to bottom--some are a lot worse.
I feel for my grandchildren!!
John Dingell; the man of "jack-booted thugs" fame in referring to the BATFE. You've come a long way, baby.
John Dingell could praise Jeff Daimler's cooking skills and get reelected. Besides there are a lot more Muslims in his districts then Jews.
Try moving to Michigan so you can witness complete idiocy on a daily basis.
It's the dumbing down
of the whole world. Hezbollah
is an "NGO" --
"smart" people love those.
"Smart" people prefer
NGO's to nation-states
can be run top-down
like a business, not shackled
to politics or
of citizen-rule. So, yeah,
the self-styled "elites"
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.
Thanks for the post.
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.)
I would say Pat's a populist/isolationist and Mel, well he's just f.....up!
With a name like John Dingell what do you expect?
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.
If you've heard him talk it's obvious he lacks intelligence.
Michigan, Michigan, Michigan ... Detroit, Michigan ...
John Dingell of MICHIGAN
votes uber alles
re post #6 from the admin moderator to you....I remember this annoying kid when I was in grade school. They gave him a Safety Patrol badge and you'd have thought we were time-warped into Mayberry and Deputy Barney Fife was on duty. Some people take themselves way too seriously.
Watch democrats' brains explode.
Talk about stuck on stupid! (Actually, I wish it were a matter of stupidity; it is more likely Dingell and his ilk are delusional about a working relationship between his socialist dream and the islamofascists.)
Warning! This is a high-volume ping list.
Yeah, but he's right. There's purpose for these things, I suppose I should go alone, EVEN IF MY MONTHLIES PAY THAT INGRATES SALARY!!!!
Hey Dingle,, ask the murdered Marine families you piece of garbage
Karl Rove set him up.
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.
I am sure Howard Dean will be calling him a anit semite any moment now.
I have, and you're right.
He may have a sizable Black Muslim contingent as well.
I agree. Dingell is one dumb and misguided dingbat.
I just used the word myself to describe him. It sure fits.
We live in such a frightening day when people like this guy exist, and actually were elected to office.
What's really scary is that his party may once again control one house of Congress and even worse, he may be in a leadership position.
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.
Or like a federal judgeship!
