Kerry: 'Partisan Politics' Motivates Critics of My 'Apartheid' Comment
breitbart.com ^ | 4/29/14 | John Nolte

A quick glance at this morning's news coverage makes clear that the media is more than a little eager to let Secretary of State John Kerry off the hook for accusing Israel of devolving into an "apartheid state" if it doesn't make peace with the Palestinians. The media is also going to let Kerry get away with claiming that those who criticized his reprehensible remark are motivated only by "partisan politics."

Golly gee, "partisan politics" being involved in criticizing a president, foreign policy or secretary of state??

John Kerry must have forgotten about HIS partisan politics in regard to Richard Nixon, Henry Kissinger, Ronald Reagan and George Bush!

But "politics ending at the water's edge" NEVER, NEVER applied to John Kerry! Oh no!!

Sauce for the goose, Mr. Kerry!!

So is Kerry saying that standing with Israel is a partisan issue and Democrats don’t?

Hussein eliminated the position of Secretary of State, replacing it with Secretary of Stupidity.

Dissent is patriotic. Ask the Secretary of State before you, traitor.

Don’t blame Kerry, he is just exposing the anti-Jew policies of president Obama that are enabling another Holocaust.

American Jews share on the blame; most of them voted for Obama and always vote for Democrats as zombies in spite that FDR closed the doors of United States to the Jews who tried to flee from Nazi occupied Europe during the Holocaust. Remember the SS Saint Louis!!!

That is the way the Devil pays those who serve him well.

WHY AMERICAN JEWS VOTE SO LIBERAL & WHY THEY SHOULDN’T

israelmuse ^ | September 4, 2010

By Dr. Norman Berdichevsky:

Jewish Liberalism is an inherited disease, it is not incurable

Time and time again, I read in websites and blogs around the internet the question and puzzling paradox posed by Gentiles who strongly support Israel, how can it be that so many Jews continue to blindly vote for ultra-liberal causes that are inherently ultra-critical of Israel and even subliminally of Jews.

The rest of the history...

Funny thing about that.

I see that Dianne Feinstein didn’t waste any time slapping him over his stupid comment.

Kerry and the Obama administration are still angry over Israel voting to stay out of the Ukraine crisis - by voting no in the UN.

That is what I believe motivated Kerry’s original comments, as it was reported that the Obama administration was fuming after Isreal’s UN vote.

Isreal wants to stay out of this, and this does not make them pro-Putin, pro-Russian propaganda, or pro-Russian.

Does Israel know something that they aren’t sharing?

Actually, Ted Cruz is FEARED by the dems. They don’t just dislike him .. they HATE him because he has a spine and they don’t.

Cruz is still my candidate for President .. NOBODY else in the repub party has the steel spine to take on the left .. and set this country straight again.

Obama animosity against Israel and his pro-Muslims policies pre-dates the Ukraine crisis, both positions are ingrained in his genes.

But the internal is now manifested in the external - as in the WH fuming over Isreal’s Ukraine crisis vote in the UN.

It comes out again in Kerry’s words, which were internal until spoken - and then became external and readily observable.

See?

He promised the promise land infamy... and people keep riding this cattle car ... man, thank goodness Detente with China did not get a defiant China against the Soviets the way Israel did.... (sarcasm off)

Kerry does not have the concept of role models and principles when having foreign policy opportunities like Israel.

This is the most dumb and short sighted political atmosphere ever. We are run by utter IDIOTS who make little excuses instead of clearing their heads out of their asses.

Yes. Some of us FReepers can see it clearly, even with corrective lenses.

LOL.

When Isreal voted the way it did in the UN it confirmed my gut feeling: they know something...that we don’t know.

They, if anyone has it, have REAL (emphasis only) intelligence.

"I will not allow my commitment to Israel to be questioned by anyone

But wouldn't the commitment to Israel be questioned from anyone who claimed Israel was heading into apartheid?

Kerry's statement doesn't show commitment...it shows hate.

To: what's up

I live in MA. I know this guy. He wants a Nobel Peace Prize. He didn’t get the presidency and he thinks he’s the most brilliant man that ever lived. The pesky Israelis are standing in the way of him becoming a Nobel Prize winner! And Obama is more than happy to go along with Kerry’s delusions to help screw Israel.

But the Jews have been around for over 4,000 years. They have faced the Egyptians, the Babylonians, the Assyrians, the Romans, the Moslems and the Nazis. They can survive the next 2+ years of Obama and Kerry!

Partisan politics, in the form of the usual democrat anti-semitism, played the major role in kerry’s remarks. Despite his denial, he has no commitment to Israel, other than to carry out obama’s goal of seeing it destroyed.

"Cruz is still my candidate for President"

Cruz was one of the few Senators who voted against the confirmation of Jean Francois Kerry. I'm one of the people responsible for the election of Ted Cruz. Best vote I have caste since I last voted for Reagan in 84'

Thank you for your vote for Cruz.

I knew he was hated by the left, but I didn’t realize why until I read Cruz’s conversation with Rush Limbaugh (the Limbaugh Letter), and found out it was Cruz who defended Bush before the Supreme Court in Bush v. Gore (and won).

Also, in that conversation, I found out Cruz was a DEBATE CHAMPION at both universities he attended.

I've always found the habit of partisan media pundits to defend their favorites after they've acknowledged a mistake. Essentially his position is that Kerry was right when he said he was wrong. If true, a very confused Secretary of State. Why not just acknowledge it's human it let your inner bias out on occasion, particularly when you're amongst friends.

Recorders on cell phones should be illegal, at least illegal to use on government officials. I see an executive order coming. Though in some jurisdictions that's already the case.
