Helen Thomas Denounces DC Greed, Fear, War-Mongers [calls for revolution]
Justice Integrity Project ^ | Dec 2011 | Andrew Kreig

Posted on 12/19/2011 2:00:31 PM PST by seanmerc

Pioneering White House correspondent Helen Thomas told a National Press Club audience Dec. 7 that the country is endangered by what she called government leaders' greed, fear, and subservience to war-mongers.

“I came here in 1943,” she told a dinner audience of 30, “and I don’t think I’ve ever seen our country so bereft of ideals and ideas. I don’t see anything on the horizon that can pull us out. I hope I’m wrong.” Shown at left in a 2009 photo courtesy of Wikipeda, she described current leaders as weak and selfish. The self-described liberal doled out criticism to all sides. “Republicans,” she said, “have one goal: To get Obama. But when they see the country falling apart, that’s all they can do?"

“As for Obama,” she continued, “I think he’s weak. He has no courage.” She said the country urgently needs “a stand-up guy who’ll do the right thing.” What are some examples?

“The first priority should be jobs.” Also, “Make people pay their taxes, and stop the wars.” She estimated at least 700 U.S. military bases around the world. “We’re killing all of these people [in undeclared wars]. Why? Is it any surprise that people will fight back for their country? There’s no doubt we want to eliminate Iran. Why wouldn’t they want to defend themselves?”

How come no one has ever asked a liberal to describe what their values and morals are.

The best question I ask my liberal friends is, “How come conservatives are proud to say they are conservatives, but liberals have to deflect from admitting they are liberals?”

It ticks them off to no end. Then I am called a racist.

“I came here in 1943,” she told a dinner audience of 30, “and I don’t think I’ve ever seen our country so bereft of ideals and ideas.”

What Thomas doesn’t realize is that she was a major contributor to the lack of ideals.

Regarding the future, she did find a ray of hope: "I want people to rise up, and they are....We should all hit the streets and call for revolution."

Pig.

The ugly socialist crone may get her wish; except that the “revolution” might not end in her favor. The democrat party should have been outlawed in 1865, its leadership north and south hanged, and anyone espousing the democrat party line stripped of citizenship and sent packing over the borders.

Let me give the old battleaxe a huge clue...it isn't going to be the OWS retards who win that revolution. They are going to be the first ones against the wall, as it were.

Was Yassir Arafat a “war monger?”

Just wondering.

The other thing that is weird about Helen and her ilk is how simplistic their ideas are... but they believe they have found the secret of life. They’re really not very smart.

Well since that's been your goal since 1943, you should be pretty pleased.

I don’t see anything on the horizon that can pull us out.

Other than that Constitution thingy, eh?

Crawl away and die somewhere, Hellen, you murderous lying hag. And may the human race forget you ever existed, while hell welcomes you with open arms.

I think it’s just wrong to post an article just so you have an excuse to post her picture. I’ll bet nobody read the article and immediately slid down to check out the comments.
