I’ve been trying to get to their web site to voice my outrage, but no luck so far. It must be deluged. Good! Time to give that hateful hag the boot.

Seems that for the last year or two she has been writing her epitaph “I’m a liberal FIRST.” Liberalism is a disease that especially infects the self proclaimed elites.

I don’t think anyone has taken Helen Thomas seriously for a long time. Cut her some slack as dementia is probably well underway.

...her remarks about Jews leaving Palestine and going back to Europe.

No she said they need to go back to GERMANY AND POLAND.

IOW, she wants them to go back to Buchenwald and Auschwitz.

Interesting that the Washington Post writer had to link to a Huffington Post story on Helen’s rant. The WaPo won’t directly report the outbust themselves.

Just went over to the Huffington Post for fun to see what they were saying about this.

All the Moderators, leaders, and main folks are completely supportive of Helen Thomas and even reiterating the “truth” of her statements. It’s almost unbelievable.

90% of the at-large posts are also in defense of both her and her ridiculous statements. There’s only about 10% of the posts crying foul - a combination of some non-Israel-hating Jewish HuffPo regulars and some Conservatives who have become members just to post dissent on their threads.

And to think HuffPo actually polled as the most popular blog for American Jews. Unreal.

Where is Jessie Jackson and Sharpton. If this was a black issue or a hispanic issue would be a months worth of talking points for Keith Overbite and Chris thrill up his leg Mathews.
Where is the outrage from the White House and leadership there?
Shame on Rahm. He is a Jew and of Israeli heritage. What a Benedict Arnold to his heritage and religion.
WHERE IS EVERYONE. Are we living on Mars, Saturn, or some other planet. When will I wake up from this nightmare?

Firing her will not do anything......stuffing her in the back of the White House press room would humiliate her on a daily basis.........I doubt that happens though.

I’m sure the Mo Dowds of the world will all issue a joint condemnation of this hateful creature. (smirk) The real question is: how many lib scribblers and reporters think the same as Thomas. Probably quite a few.

I am looking forward to an illustration of her wearing a woman’s brownshirt (Sturmabteilung) uniform.

Though properly, she should be in the uniform of a “collaborationnistes”, a fascist collaborator in Vichy controlled Lebanon, even though she was born in the US, and was 21 year old at the time. It must have pained her terribly to see her beloved French fascists driven out of Lebanon.

(Lots of possible variations on this. Fascists were nothing if not for often changing the names of their organizations and uniforms.)

Where is the Jewish outrage? Where are the leading Rabbis hollering their disapproval? Jews may be God’s chosen people, but more often I think He left out the “obvious as the nose on your face” and political gene with them.

My point here was to show the world that the land belonged to the Jews before the Palestinians. Palestinians lay claim to the land but ancient history shows different. My opinion anyway.
