Helen Thomas has a message for the Jews

YouTube Preview Image

Helen Thomas has been carrying a grudge against the Jews ever since she got dumped by King Herod.

(Hat tip: PsstErika)

P.S. Per Craig Crawford, Thomas has issued the following statement:

I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.

I think she means moving day.

P.P.S. Note to Greg Sargent:  Yes, conservatives are condemning what Helen Thomas said. The question is: Why aren’t liberals?

    1 – Gibbs has denounced her remarks, not sure what you mean by silence. quick search turns up this: (ttp://www.politico.com/blogs/onmedia/0610/Gibbs_rebukes_Thomas.html?showall)

    2 – everyone’s dropped her because of the comment and she’s officially retired.

    3 – not sure if this is a right-leaning site or what (i’m here by way of Fark), but the vitriol directed toward democrats, as though this woman’s a representative for them or something, seems pretty uneducated and lacking substance.

    The condemnation from the left is deafening silence…and telling.

      If you go to Huffington Post (and I don’t recommend that you do) you will see hundreds of posts in support of Thomas’ hateful statement.

      These are the very same pigs that repeat the “all dissent towards Obama is racism” meme on a daily basis.

    I just found out today that she is the daughter of Lebanese immigrants. Of course she’s a anti-semite. And that explains why Obama loves her.

    Is it OK for the White House press Corps to have a known racist bigot in their midst? All of the Republican brass need to call for her press credentials to be revoked!

    Abe should of never issued her a press pass in the first place. Only thing worse than a Liberal is a Centuries old Liberal with diarrhea of the mouth.
