'Rabbi Live' Turns Sights On Obama After Helen Thomas
Accuracy in Media ^ | 6/30/'10 | Roger Aronoff

Posted on 07/07/2010 10:29:40 AM PDT by Zionist Conspirator

Rabbi David Nesenoff has given Accuracy in Media the most detailed account yet of how his encounter with veteran White House correspondent Helen Thomas caused him to reevaluate not only his view of the media, but of the White House and President Obama.

Nesenoff is a self-described liberal Democrat who used to think Obama should be given a chance to change U.S. foreign policy for the better. Now he worries about the existence of the state of Israel.

If he EVER thought anything good would come from an 0bamao regime, his judgement is worthless.

God does work in mysterious ways! Jaw dropping levels of stupidity from otherwise intelligent people. Of course, I see it everyday here in SoCal.

He has awoken to only one aspect of reality - that the “diversity” Left hates Jews. That does not make him a conservative. That makes him an ignorant leftist who now realizes his pals hate Jews. To this fool Utopia may still be Marxism with political leaders who love Jews.

Better late than never that Liberal Jews have figured this Regime and their cohorts in Congress out. In Hitler’s Germany, later cost six million Jews their lives. Wait until Americans realize that a Holocaust was instituted by this Regime via their DeathCare. The Death Panel’s camps in our future will be Pelosi/Reid/Obama Hospice Centers.

Exactly. He hit a home run his first at bat. Odds are against it happening again. Anyone who did not see the handwriting on the wall after Jerry Wright was exposed is willfully ignorant and needs to follow not lead.

Yes indeed.

A lot of Christian folks who scolded me two years ago for my loathing for Obama (quoting Hebrews 13* at me) are now Quoting Psalm 109:8**.

* Hebrews 13 “Be in submission to authorities”

**Psalm 109:8 “Let his days be few, and another take his office.

There is hope for all. Sometimes it takes a little longer for some people to open their eyes. :-)

Blessings.

May G-d save our FRee Republic!

He said he came to believe in Obama because the media constantly said “give him a chance.”

Figures. What a dope.

Everyone is catching on. They are beginning to see Obama is for no one but himself and that goes for the Congress.

Well there goes that stereotype that Jews are shrewd.

You are absolutely correct, but every journey begins with a single step. How far he will travel is still unknown.

He’ll turn back, never fear. He’s a liberal Demwit who (uncharacteristically) cares about Israel and Israeli Jews. Thanks Zionist Conspirator.

Just because he's starting to turn on Obama because of Israel, does not mean he's a conservative (yet).

Mmmm. Might as well have given Adolph a chance to change German foreign policy for the better, too.

So Rabbi Nesenoff is damned from the beginning and can have no redemption per his awakening? By your judgment, it would appear that we should not even hope or care that those suckered by Obama ever realize the truth? I would offer that if the Rabbi comes to a realistic appraisal of Liberalism; that every step towards his enlightenment, should be appreciated if not celebrated.

There is truth in the adage 'better late than never'. There is as well, truth in the warning of 'too late smart'; but wherever this 'falls per our political landscape'. . .the greater number on the side of 'truth'; the greater the chance of truth prevailing.

Understand - as does everyone here - your frustration per the 'blindness' here; but thankfully, we all have the luxury of learning and changing our minds. . . .Believe the Rabbi will be instrumental in changing even more.

Those who set themselves up as "teachers" and who take it upon themselves to tell others how they should vote, should make more considered judgements before telling others how to vote. The rabbi obviously failed to observe the obvious parallels between 0bama and another politician whose career came to an abrupt end in 1945.

I applaud him for finally recognizing the obvious.

Yes, a now, near fatal blind spot for our country by way of the 'persuasions' of the Rabbi and a host of like-minded Jewish Liberals; and as well, though less mystifying; the cadres of Liberal elites - all who have come to play as useful idiots.

As damning is their embrace of Obama; we cannot have a 'sea-change' of events - back to America's meaningful future - without more of these people waking up to the reality of our counterfeit President - not to mention the counterfeit ideology which animates him and all Liberals. Seems more are waking up; and I hope and pray, many, many more will soon follow.

Hell, anyone with one eye and a grain of sense could see that the liberal Rats are just an extension of the Jew hating Nazis and Stalinists.

That's precisely why I question the judgement and intelligence of a Jewish Rabbi who supported 0bama - at any point!

I've heard that there is no one with more zeal than a reformed alcoholic, smoker, etc., so I'm hoping those that are finally waking up to the 0bama charade are equally zealous.

It pains me to see Jews reject the support of conservative evangelical Christians and embrace the scorn and disdain of atheist liberals.

It might be the beginning of making him a neoconservative in the accurate, non-pejorative sense. The neoconservatives (”new conservatives”) were all former liberals who got mugged by reality.

Time will tell about the the Rabbi’s full awakening to the nature of his “friends” on the Left. I just hope Obama does not get a lot of people killed before we can get rid of him.
