With Regrets (Helen Thomas' agent and her co-author dump her)
CQ Politics ^ | 6/6/10 | Craig Crawford

Posted on 06/06/2010 2:16:13 PM PDT by Nachum

I concur with the following response from my agent to Helen Thomas' lamentable remarks about Israel, and will no longer be working with Helen on our book projects. -- Craig Crawford

"It is with a heavy heart that Nine Speakers, Inc. announces its resignation as the agent for Helen Thomas, Dean of the White House Press Corps. Ms. Thomas has had an esteemed career as a journalist, and she has been a trailblazer for women, helping others in her profession, and beyond. However, in light of recent events, Nine Speakers is no longer able to represent Ms. Thomas, nor can we condone her comments on the Middle East. Nine Speakers will continue to enthusiastically represent all of our other current and future clients." -- Diane Nine (ninespeakers@usa.net)

Why did they let her go at the Nurnberg trials?

Or the Salem witch trials? Oh, wait . . . it was because the witches were the ones who survived the dunkings.

Thomas’ continued presence in the White House pressroom will be a continuous affront, a clear message that her evil views of Jewish people are tolerated by the national press and the White House. It will be a clear message to all the Jew-haters in the World that their bigotry is ok. It will also be a reminder of the hypocrisy and the extraordinary double-standards that exist in our “elite” news media.

One has to wonder ...

How many decades has Helen been a closet Jew-hater?

And how many more of the White House Press Corps hate Jews as well?

A trailblazer for women? Yeah, because even a dinosaur wouldn’t stand in her way.

I spent the weekend thinking about her comments and then it hit me.

When I was around 11 years old a Ku Klux Klan rally came to the area and I remember reading a newspaper article about the security, the burning cross and then what the speaker said.

I remember reading that Grand Dragon whoever said that the black people should ‘go back to Africa.’

Helen Thomas’s comment is something that a Klansman would say about black people, its as simple as that.

She HAD to have an Agent -

How else could she have gotten a job - Not with her looks, of course!

And her inteligence . . . well, what can you say?
