I Got Helen Thomas to Hang Up on Me
DFU phone call to the troll | 10-11-02 | Doug from Upland

Posted on 10/11/2002 11:50:31 AM PDT by doug from upland

THIS HELEN THOMAS NONSENSICAL PIECE inspired my phone call to her. Her number is at the bottom.

I was surprised to actually get through to the troll. I gave my name and indicated that I participate on FreeRepublic where I saw her article posted. Trying not to be confrontational with the troll, I said that I found it interesting but had a few questions.

First, she said that Iraq is under total surveillance from the air. I asked whether that was good enough considering that we have no access to the palaces or perhaps hundreds of other buildings that are off limits. She told me that he agreed to give access to everything. I questioned that and she directed me to ask the State Department.

She came back at me with "Should we check every nation?" My response was that I was not quite as much concerned that our friends in England had nukes as I am that someone like Saddam Hussein had them.

Helen immediately launched into an attack on Israel talking about the nukes the Israelis have and that they occupy territory that does not belong to them. Then she went on to babble that someday everyone would have nukes. She asked why I don't go along with non-proliferation and she mumbled something else that was somewhat incoherent.

She appeared to be growing weary in the exchange so I asked her if she had time for just one more question before I left. I asked her opinion about Juanita Broaddrick. "Who is that," she said. As I was about to explain (of course, she knows) she said, "I don't have any more time for this. Bye bye." And then, Helen the troll hung up the phone on me.

I had so many more questions for her. I wondered if the economy began its slide on Jan. 20, 2001. I wondered whether corporate greed began on Jan. 20, 2001. I wondered if stocks began the downturn on Jan. 20, 2001. I wondered how many corporate execs Bill Clinton had ordered to be led away in orange jump suits during his tenure. Unfortunately, we were not able to discuss those issues.

Maybe Helen had to go take a nap. Or, maybe she had to down another pint.

I guess this could be considered a phone FReep, right?

She probably had to dodder on down to the bridge over the creek. The Billy Goats will be coming along pretty soon and she'll want to be ready for them.

I'd have simply said...

"Helen, my prayer is that God simply gives you the Ebola and ends this whole embarrassing episode."

No...seriously, good job.

I'll bet you have an overwhelming desire to take an immediate shower or two, or three.

I know I would feel filthy after any form of contact with that disgusting bitch.

Thank you for the Juanita B. question! Clinton is too low to kick at and too slimy to stomp on (as my grandfather used to say)...and Juanita's brutal rape is prima facie evidence. Unfortunately, Helen not only knows Bubba Rex did it, she would love to go back in time and trade places with Juanita in that motel room. Sick, sick, sick.

Blessings on Freepers Everywhere.

You could also ask her if she still believed that Vince Foster was killed in the White House.

I saw and heard it myself- Helen Thomas ON THE AIR said she believe Vince Foster was killed and that "It happened right there in the white house" (Actual Quote from Helen Thomas)

The news 'anchor' interviewing her got a real chuckle out of it, and moved on... instead of screaming "WHAT???? YOU BELIEVE VINCE FOSTER WAS KILLED IN THE WHITE HOUSE??? TELL US WHY YOU BELIEVE THAT HELEN????"

Chane quotes Alexis de Tocqueville, the 19th century French historian known for his classic study of the United States, who eloquently said, "America is great because America is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, it will cease to be great."

That is a prophecy worth pondering.

The irony is just blood boiling, is'nt it? She goes on an anti-Semitic tirade and thinks she's on the right side?

Maybe it is just me. In a conversation with Lanny Davis (hosted by David Limbaugh or Mark Levin) I had Lanny screaming at me at the top of his lungs when I mentioned Juanita and wondered what Lanny would do if she were his sister.(This was about three years ago. I might have asked Lanny what he would do if Clinton raped his sister, but I can't remember exactly.) On another occasion, on Gloria Allred's show, I had the opportunity to speak with Joe Conason. When Gloria said, "On the line now we have Doug from Upland." Conason asks, "Is this the famous Doug from Upland from FreeRepublic?" My answer was, "Yes. Is this the famous Clinton buttboy Joe Conason." Conason started screaming on the phone and telling Gloria he did not want to talk with me.

I don't know. Maybe I am the one with the problem and just don't know how to be friendly enough.

Nice work, Doug. I am constantly being bombarded by various telephone companies trying to get my business. I think I'll go with the one that offers the cheapest troll calls.

Well, I think we've got Helen pegged as an anti-Semite which is why she thought Clinton was brilliant. Clinton was trying to sell Israel into slavery.

Doug my man...you are famous. You are outrageous, outspoken but never out matched. Wish I could have heard the exchange of words on both calls. Lovin' it.

Should have told her that you were in the midst of a scavenger hunt, and that one of the items you were looking for was what passes for her "brain"........and did she have any hints for you.............

202-298-6920 or at the e-mail address helent@hearstdc.com

A man answered the phone. I suspect she will take no more calls from FReepers. She may, however, like to have us tell her via e-mail about Juanita Broaddrick. Let's get on it and fill her mailbox.

I asked her opinion about Juanita Broaddrick. "Who is that," she said.

Helen Thomas does her mentor (father?) Stalin proud. Juanita Broaddrick, Official Non-Person.

Why in the world would you identify yourself as a participant of "freerepublic"? Why do you have to identify yourself as a member of any group? Let your ideas stand or fall on their own. Most people correctly view freerepublic as a collection of freaks. And I say that as a conservative republican.
