Skip to comments.Sarah Palin aide Fred Malek helped former President Richard Nixon dump Jews from government

WASHINGTON - A top adviser to GOP star Sarah Palin was once dispatched by ex-President Richard Nixon to sweep Jews out of government service, newly released tapes show.
Nixon aide Fred Malek's role as what Democrats call a "Jew counter" for the disgraced President was already well known, and he has spent decades apologizing for activities that later cost him a Republican National Committee job in the 1980s. But he remains a prominent GOP powerbroker.
"The government is full of Jews," Nixon griped to chief aide H.R. Haldeman in a July 1971 Oval Office recording released by the University of Virginia's Miller Center on Thursday. "Most Jews are disloyal."
The Republican President, who resigned amid the Watergate scandal in 1974, said he wanted Malek in charge of cleaning Jews out of "any sensitive areas."
"We've got to get a man in charge who is not Jewish to control the Jewish - do you understand?" Nixon said.
"I sure do," Haldeman answered.
Ultimately, Malek turned over a list of more than a dozen Jews in the Bureau of Labor Statistics, files show. Most were fired.
The Democratic Party fired off at least 13 e-mails to reporters blasting Malek - who ran George H.W. Bush's 1992 campaign - and forwarded unflattering stories about the new tape. Malek was recently named a budget adviser by Virginia's Republican governor, Robert McDonnell.

One more good reason to dump any any all relationships with the old guard GOP.
They don’t care about Jews.
Malek is not in Palin’s camp...he advises her at various times and likes her, and for the media to try to cover for Helen Thomas with an attempt to link Sarah with Malek’s Nixon days is ridiculous
A Helen Thomas counteroffensive and swipe at Palin at the same time. Classic Drive-by story.
He is not a TOP adviser...He liked Sarah and has pointed her to do certain things but he is not the inner circle of her team..the NY paper is trying to cover for Helen Thomas
But did he cook up a plans to rob an armored car, blow up a police station, and the Pentagon?
Don’t look now, but there’s a former Klansman in the Senate!
I think he’s intimated that he’d support a Haley Barbour presidential run in ‘12.
What ties Malek to Sarah Palin is that Palin’s right hand aide Meg Stapleton worked for Malek when she was in Washington before returning to Alaska.
I knew Malek was an old timer but RIchard NixOn is a man whose policies we should never want to emulate.
I thought it was cool to hate the Jews now.
I’m so confused.
exactly...he even said earlier this year that Sarah isn’t doing the things that he wish she would do...that doesn’t sound like someone’s Top adviser, He told people that he saw potential in her...but for these yahoos to try to connect Malek Nixon days to Helen Thomas and putting Sarah in the middle is ridiculous
Palin drives them crazy....and we know that because they didn’t want anyone to know about Rev. Wright’s anti-semetic rants.
LOL, it just never stops the MSM is so predictable.
But it’s not newsworthy when Helen Thomas says that jews should all “go home”.
No bias here...............
And even at that, isn’t Stapleton Palin’s former right-hand aide?
Sarah Palin’s aid’s grocery clerk's brother-in-law's drug dealer's dog groomer's pedicurist's paper-boy puts burning dog poop bag on neighbor's porch!
HOW COULD SHE SANCTION SUCH AN OUTRAGE!!! MSM screams...
“My feet stink and burn!” says innocent victim of heartless Palin prank.
The DEA is investigating.
This just in...Sarah Palin’s beautician knew somebody who’s dad was a member of the Hitler Youth. Obviously poor judgment on Palin’s part and we have to investigate this.
Palin, Palin, Ja what next, will she now be taged by the MSM as the Amerikan Reich candidate? MY TAG LINE STICKS. Who cares what Malek did during Nixon’s tenure, he isn’t doing it for Palin, nor do I suspect he will. Then again, its the NYC Daily News, it’s reports will be slanted towards the liberals as it needs their subscriptions to stay alive. Its no longer the NY Daily News of the 50’s. This is pure BS and I expect it to get even worse for Palin before 2012.
