Skip to comments.CNN’s Bash To Eric Cantor: ‘Do You Think there was Anti-Semitism involved In Your Defeat?’
Posted on 06/15/2014 12:25:46 PM PDT by chessplayer
Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA) made his first live television appearances on Sunday, June 15 following his primary defeat to his a Tea Party challenger David Brat. The defeat was unexpected by most in Washington and was one of the main topics of conversation across the Sunday shows.
Cantor sat down with CNNs Dana Bash on State of the Union on Sunday and was asked by the fill-in host Do you think there was anti-Semitism involved in your defeat?"
“On a scale of KKK to Hitler, where do you place your opponents?”
Libs claiming antisemitism. Look who’s talking. How is their stance on Israel and the six million Jews who live there. Do they think Israel should be nuked by Iran? Sure looks that way.
LOL - he’s been representing this district for a considerable period of time which means they’ve been electing him...now all of a sudden they’re bigots (per the press). What nonsense.
Commie libs pimping “anti-Semitism”. LOL! That’s a hoot. CNN is a big fan and supporter of Israel and the Jews. ROTFL!
Why would Cantor even talk to CNN. When he was in the leadership of the House of Representatives they continually attacked him.
What possible purpose could it serve to talk to these liars?
Yes, he’d only been elected by the same district seven times and now they discovered he wasn’t a WASP? Or was it that famous anti-Semite Mark Levin who orchestrated the radio talk show campaign against him?
In my best John McLaughlin voice: "Wrooooong! The correct answer is Jenghis (sic) Kahn."
Pay attention students; This is what Race Baiting looks like.
They offer Cantor a cushy Comfy Chair of an excuse to sit down in. If that was Michael Steele, then he would have quickly sat down in that Comfy Chair of the victim, propped his smelly feet up on the Tea Party, then twinkled his toes.
CNN - “Do you think that not using the crying tips you learned from Speaker Boehner caused your defeat ?”
On Washington Week John Harwood made the same sickening charge implying that tea partiers were anti semitic. To her credit, Gwen Ifill reminded him that Cantor had been elected 7 times prior to his loss.
The only time I watch these liberal beltway shows is when there is bad news for The One to see how the libs try to protect him. Sadly ( or gladly in the woes of The One ) for me, I’m being subjected to more and more of these idiot news shows with the Stasi Stenographers.
Still trying to find the “racist” Tea Party people.
Liberals are so racist.
Wait, we voted for this ass hat despite his religion and then tossed him for the same thing?
Funny, since Conservatives are pro-Israel while the Left is not and they support the anti-semetic divestment movement.
I saw this meme from a random NYC-area Lib I know immediately after the election.
Now, now, that’s a very nice looking horse.
Obama and his islamoNazi backers and co-conspirators and fellow travelers have created and unleashed a tremendous amount of anti- semitism ( and anti_Christian) hatred here in USA and all around the world. But no, I’ve seen no sign of any significant Jew hatred in Senator Cantor’s defeat. It looks like he just lost touch with his constituents and drifted too far to the left.
I have a dream that, one day, despicable racists like Dana Bush and not allowed a megaphone...
“Funny, since Conservatives are pro-Israel while the Left is not and they support the anti-semetic divestment movement.
And let’s not forget, that by a wide margin, American Jews are RATS!
I, too, have been trying to understand that question.
If the district is anti-Semitic, then the only way their HATRED could have come through is if Cantor had been a Christian (or some other faith), and converted to Judaism in the past 2 years.
Cantor was clear with his answer - that was NOT the case.
Using Cantor as a prop to suggest that Republicans are also anti-Semitic is a convenient ploy to fog up the issue.
Cantor, of course, puts up a completely lame response to the charge of GOP anti-Semitism, and he never even mentions Obama or Kerry or Israel.
Not that any of this really matters.
Secular American Jews despise Conservatives, they will never vote for us, and they don't care that Conservatives are the only major political group in the world that supports Israel.
Thank you for mentioning Cantor’s reply. I don’t want to watch the video. I don’t care for either Cantor or CNN, so I figured why subject myself? Otoh, it’s been really hard to find Cantor’s reply short of watching it. I read quite a few replies on Breitbart, & no one let the cat out of the bag. I was about to give up on this thread too, when I got to your post—the very last one at the time I started mine. Thanks again; I appreciate the info you included in your comments.
I do not understand ...Vhy are there alvays more horses asses then there are horses ?
I forgot that Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party in Canada are unquestionably strong supporters of Israel.
WOW CNN really..really? The left despises Israel, its core group, Code Pink, aligns themselves with the Arabs, and THEY have the gall to ask if Cantor’s defeat has anything to do with Anti-Semitism..NO Bash you freakin DUMB ASS, it has to do with the fact that he is for illegal aliens to get amnesty..wow there really is no cure for stupid
I think there was anti-semitism involved in the question, Dana - who else but someone who thought of others in terms of their religious beliefs would ask such a thing?.....
Thank you Gwen Ifill...
And if Cantor had ever lost to a liberal Democrat in a general election I’m sure they would have asked the same question.[/sarcasm]
The only people on earth who hate him because he is a Jew are Moslems and Democrats.
Al Sharpton inciting a race riot against Jews in NYC.....
Jimmy Carter special pals with Hamas!
Harwood the Lefty married man who had an affair with DemoRAT Senator Cantwell!
He is still employed by the Obama media ,
OMG.... if it was Anti-Semitism that caused his defeat, then, the 75% of American Jews who vote Democrat will increase to 80%. Oh my.....
Mark Levin is clearly an antisemite. Also, Don Feder, an Orthodox Jew with some family members who are rabbis, is an antisemite, too for opposing Eric Cantor and mocking him as Eddie Cantor. /sarc
