Looking at facial expressions and body languages can tell us much about a person and what they are telling us, but in this case the "eyes" have it. Note the sinister look in her eyes as she says these despicable things. They are clear and tell us that these are not the words of someone suffering from dementia. She knows what she is saying and really means it.
Then, let's analyze this further and see what the reaction would be if we modified her statements a little bit:
- Suppose she had said this about Mexicans: They should go back home to Mexico, this is American land and they are invading it.
- Suppose she had said this about Blacks: Time for them to go back to Africa where they came from, they should not be here now that slavery is over.
Once this hit the airwaves and the internet, she would be banned from the WH Press Corps. I guarantee you, she would not have a place there - anymore.
Secondly, Hearst would retire her immediately. If she went quietly, she could get her benefits and move on with her life for however long she has left on this earth. If not, she'd be fired outright.
Neither of these things will happen, of course. For many people in this world, Jews are the scourge of society--much like they were in Hitler's day. They are the lowest form of life and are not considered to be human beings, worthy of any rights... whatsoever. Back in Nazi Germany and the European lands it conquered, many turned their backs because they weren't Jewish and it didn't directly affect them. They were cowards.
I suspect this is also the case today, as the MSM has been anti-Israel for some time now and this has planted seeds of anti-semitism in young minds that will now grow up hating Jews. An entire generation has been educated by anti-semitists and liberal apologists -- who oppose Israel's existence. It actually seems to be cool to hate Israel on most university campuses, these days.
Let's be clear about something here at PYY:
If Helen Thomas had said either of those two things I just mentioned (in any form or modification), PYY would vehemently condemn her statement or staements. No questions, no excuses. Such is the case with the statements she did make in this video. They are vile and worthy of all condemnation and should qualify her for immediate termination. There is no excuse, no taking out of context, no explanation that is credible enough that will change my mind.
And....for anyone who makes the argument that she is merely condemning Zionism, you are welcome to respond to this post. But if I were you, I would take a moment and think about something before you look foolish. Her words reflect nothing short of religious cleansing, which was taking place in Kosovo in the late 90s. Nothing....not one damn thing is different and I challenge anyone to try and prove otherwise.
It's time for people to stand up to this kind of blatant hatred and stop coddling people who are a threat to peace and stability in the world, even if they are old people who should know better. It's time to start understanding that eradicating and/or dispersing 7.5 million people from a tiny strip of land in the Middle East is not worth another world war. It's time to let worthless haters know that this is not okay.
Israel has been a nation for 60 years now, they are not going away without a fight. And I don't blame them one bit for protecting their homeland from their sworn enemies. They will be there for a long time. So Helen, Hamas, Hezbollah, and other terror-loving entities need to deal with it, and get used to it.
1. It doesn't happen very often that Lanny Davis and I are on the same page, but evidently he is with me on this.
2. Want to give Hearst Corporation a piece of your mind? Here is the e-mail of the PR contact from their website: email@example.com
I told them I would unsubscribe to the four magazines they publish that come to my house on a regular basis, if they did not fire her. I doubt they will go under because they lose my business. But if enough people did it, who knows?
3. The ball may be beginning to roll, here is the statement released by Helen's publicity agent:
"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
