Anti-Israeli Rant from Democrat National Committee Member Forces Resignation

Posted by Steve Markowitz on July 8, 2012

Last week another Democrat Leftist came out of the closet with an anti-Israeli rant.  Evelyn Garcia was the Palm Beach representative to the Democratic National Committee until her resignation on July 2, 2012.  This resignation resulted from some e-mails of Garcia that went public comparing Israel’s struggles with the Palestinians to “slavery” and “apartheid” and blamed Israel for “crimes against humanity” and accused the country of holding “mass concentration camps”.

Garcia’s e-mails were in her defense of the radical Leftist organization Code Pink who also was attacking Israel.  After the publicity Garcia resigned and apologized calling her remarks “ugly” and “hurtful”.  The apology is hollow.  It is not the ugliness or hurtfulness of the comments that are problematic.  Instead, it is the radical views that many Leftists hold in support of radical regimes at the expense of America’s friends and values.  This same mentality on the Left in the 1960s either outwardly supported or glorified radical including Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Mao Tse-tung, the Black Panthers, and yes Obama friend Jeff Ayers.

Remarkably, one of Garcia’s associates is Floridian Congresswoman and DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz who is not only Jewish, but a strong supporter of Israel as shown in the video below.  This unholy association between irreconcilable philosophies is a poorly kept secret on the Left.  To Progressives, the ends justify the means.  As the Pete Seeger sang in the 1960s, “when will they ever learn“?

Anti-Semite Organized Occupy Miami Movement

Posted by Steve Markowitz on November 27, 2011

WorldNetDaily a November 25th, published another story titled OCCUPY THIS! exposing additional bigotry that is part of the Occupy movement.  According to The Miami Herald, Mohammad Malik is and organizer of the Occupy Miami movement.  Over recent weeks Malik has in fact been quoted in the press as speaking for Occupy.

Before becoming involved in the Occupy movement, Malik was involved in other radical and Left-leaning groups.  While currently unemployed, he previously worked for the ACLU.  More significantly, Malik was director of CAIR’s (Council on American-Islamic Relations) South Florida chapter as well as his associations with other Islamic groups that have been involved with hate filled, anti-Israel demonstrations.

As an example of Malik’s radical leaning, during his tenure as a CAIR executive, he organized a dinner with its keynote speaker being Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.  Wahhaj was an apologist for convicted WTC bomb plotters and has expressed his desire to invoke and Islamic caliphate in the United States, i.e. Sharia law.

Malik is not the first member of CAIR involved with the Occupy movement.  CAIR worked with the Islamic Leadership Council and the Arab-American Association of New York to lead prayer sessions in the Occupy Wall Street movement.  CAIR also has relations with other radical organizations, including Code Pink.

There is growing evidence that the radicals involved in the Occupy movement are more than just fringe misfits tagging along for the ride.  In Miami, a radical anti-Semite is a leader of the Occupy movement.  It is disappointing that Leftist politicians remain silent on the hate groups involved with the Occupy movement.  It is telling that while President Obama and Nancy Pelosi were so willing to speak positively about the movement, they have since remained silent on its growing dark side.

The Leftists has become beholden to bigots and anti-Semites as a source of political power.  It is ironic that earlier days such misfits were more likely to come from the Right now feel so comfortable joining the Left’s movement.

There is growing anger in the United States that comes from the lengthy economic downturn, as well as our dysfunctional government.  That anger was expressed during the November 2010 elections with the electorate showing a throw the bums out mentality.  It was also expressed by the creation of two significant movements, the Tea Party and Occupy.  However, these movements are very different.  While the Tea Party expressed its anger with a main theme; smaller government and less government spending, the Occupy movement after months has yet to create its political theme.  Instead, the Occupy movement has become merely a collection of disgruntled Americans with Leftist views.  That has made them ripe for infiltration and control by radicals such as CAIR and Code Pink.

Cal Thomas wrote an op-ed posted below that expresses the weaknesses behind some of the more mainstream Americans that have become involved with the Occupy movement.  He concludes with a revealing comment by former Democrat Senator from New Jersey and professional basketball player, Bill Bradley, who so aptly said: “Ambition is the path to success.  Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.”  Unfortunately, Progressives have proffered the perverse view that Americans cannot achieve without the help of their government.  Is that belief that now permeates the Occupy movement.

Thankfulness and OWS, by Cal Thomas

For more than half my life I was a 99-percenter.  I kept my first pay stubs in the news business to remind me where I came from and what was necessary in order to get where I am today.

In 1975, while working at a TV station in Houston, I wrote a letter to a friend in Washington complaining about my stalled career and low salary.  “I will probably die here with my boots on, boots bought on a revolving charge and not fully paid for,” I griped.  My memory is not that good. He kept the letter and showed it to me a few years ago.  We laughed.

At age 37, I was making $25,000 a year with few prospects of earning more.  Suddenly things began to change.  All the hard work and experience resulted in a better job and more pay.

As a young reporter, I interviewed many successful people.  “Where did you go to college and what did you study?”  I asked them.  “What is your philosophy of life and work ethic?”  Rather than envy them, I wanted to be like them.

This is what’s missing from the envy culture of the movement known as Occupy Wall Street (OWS). Envy is greed’s equally bad brother.  Those who lack what they think they deserve lust after the money and property of wealth creators.  They seem to know little of what used to be called the “work ethic.”

Many in the OWS crowd are also deficient in their understanding of economics.  There is not a single pie from which all must eat.  Instead, life contains a recipe everyone can follow to make pies for themselves.  The pies are not guaranteed to be the same size for all, but if the right ingredients are used, those pies can make anyone self-sufficient.

This is the great philosophical divide that liberal politicians have effectively used to gain power for themselves while dooming increasing numbers of their fellow Americans to a life of dependency, failure and envy.

The recently failed debt commission contained elements of a poison familiar to many who have succeeded in life by their own efforts.  Democrats wanted to tax the rich even more, but has a tax increase ever resulted in less spending?  When the federal government gets more of our money, it doesn’t suddenly become fiscally responsible.  The more money it gets, often the more it spends.

In an America not long ago, we encouraged persistence. “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” was a little saying I often heard growing up. Now it seems the message too many are sending and receiving is, “If at first you don’t succeed, don’t try again; turn to government (or a lawyer).”

I am thankful to live in a country that still rewards hard work, personal responsibility and accountability.  But that country, which was my role model as a young man, is rapidly fading into history.  Human nature is such that a substantial number of people can be addicted to a government check if they choose not to work.  But many of our grandparents taught us by example that the pursuit of success was a noble quest.  Parents once bragged about what their children had become.

How many parents are bragging about their kids occupying cities and universities and fouling the ground and streets with human waste?

Bill Bradley, former Democratic senator and professional basketball player, once observed: “Ambition is the path to success.  Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.”

We should be thankful for such truth. I would be more thankful if it were on the rise instead of in decline.

Bill Maher: Another Progressive Bigot Comes Out of the Closet

Posted by Steve Markowitz on April 9, 2011

What does Progressive Leftist Bill Maher do when he is unhappy with President Obama?  He resorts spouting anti-Semitism.  This past Friday Maher said (video below):

“I heard him a couple of times saying, “You know what? We met the Republicans what they asked, and then we gave them more.”  That’s like your lawyer saying to you,  “You know, I went into the chambers with the judge and the prosecutor, and my first offer was 40 years to life for you. And I think I can get your tailgating charge moved up to manslaughter.  And that’s my first offer.”  What is wrong with these people?  He is a terrible negotiator.  Does he not even know a Jew?”

Adding an exclamation point to his bigotry, Maher then showed a poster for replacing Glenn Beck on Fox News that depicted Joe Lieberman doing a program called, “Morning Jew.”

For years bigotry has been gaining traction in Leftist circles.  In earlier years it manifested itself mainly on the Left’s fringes with the likes of Louis Farrakhan and Pastor Wright.  It is becoming more mainstream in the Left.  Maher joins other Leftist bigots, as previously post on this Blog:

NPR’s Vivian Schiller attacking Zionist and Christians.

Code Pink calling for Clarence Thomas to be lynched.

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell saying the Michael Steele answers to “his masters”.

Helen Thomas telling Jews to go back to Germany.

Oliver Stone indicating that Jews have overblown the Holocaust.

Congressman Paul Kanjorski demeaning minorities.

MSNBC’s Chris Mathews forgets that Obama is black for a few minutes.

Cynthia Tucker taking off on Michael because he is black.

When examples of racism and bigotry from the Left are outed, inevitably Progressive elitists offer excuses such as “they know what is in the person’s heart and therefore that person could not be a racists”.  The Left has wrapped racism in the covers of political correctness for their own continence.  This is a dangerous slippery slope that can lead to fascism.  It is the same slide that allowed half the country to vote for president a man who admittedly attended a bigoted church for twenty years.

Progressive Bigots Leftist Rally; Some Suggest Lynching Clarence Thomas

Posted by Steve Markowitz on March 7, 2011

Early this year a Progressive pep rally was held in Palm Springs, California called “Uncloaking the Kochs” indicating the groups dislike for the billionaire brothers who fund conservative causes.  The rally was sponsored by the likes of Common Cause, AFFCE, Greenpeace, Code Pink, the Progessive and the Democrats of America and was staged outside of a Koch Brothers conference in Palm Springs.

Avowed Communist and ex-White House aide Van Jones was one of the Leftist speakers at the rally.  While in his typical soft-spoken tone he railed against the “politics of hatred”, some in attendance didn’t share that vision as indicated in the video below where they call for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to be “put back in the fields” and “strung up and his wife too”, among other rather racist comments.

After the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona, President Obama placed blame on the incivility of the political discourse in America.  These comments and the way the mainstream media portrayed them placed the blame on Conservatives and particularly the Tea Party.  The President’s and media’s silence on the bigotry and incivility exhibited in Palm Springs and Madison Wisconsin not only show the Left’s insincerity, but also the danger of growing racist beliefs by Progressives.
