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.

Helen Thomas, long-time White House correspondence, was forced to reign this past spring for her anti-Semantic rant that included telling the Jews in Israel to “get the hell out of Palestine” and “go home” to Poland and Germany. Most Americans were appalled by her statements, but apparently not all. Some supporters of Thomas are trying to get a statue in her honor placed in the Arab American National Museum in Michigan, trying to raise the required $30,000.
Shame on those that would glorify a bigoted person. The Arab community in Dearborn Michigan will make a statement about bigotry, one way or the other, based on their decision as to whether or not to honor such person.

It has become apparent that the greatest threat from racism, anti-Semitism and anti-feminism in recent decades comes from the Progressive Left. Almost on a daily basis some Progressive comes out with a public pronouncement of their bigoted beliefs.
Just a few weeks ago it was Progressive White House reporter Helen Thomas who suggested that Jews need to get out of Israel and go back to Poland and Germany where their parents were gassed. This week Progressive reporter from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Cynthia Tucker, came out of the closet. In an interview with ABC’s Jake Tapper during “This Week” the discussion was GOP Chairman Michael Steele. Here are two of Tucker’s comments:
- Michael Steele “is a self-aggrandizing, gaffe-prone incompetent who would have been fired a long time ago were he not black.”
- “The irony is that he never would have been voted in as Chairman of the Republican Party were he not black“.
Typical of racists, Ms. Tucker does not focus Michael Steele and whether or not he should leave his position. That would be legitimate debate that Progressives try to avoid in discussions. No, Ms. Tucker focuses on the color of Steele’s skin. Just imagine the outcry if someone suggested the same of President Obama when he makes errors, of which there have been many.
Noel Sheppard of www.NewsBusters.org makes an especially cogent point of Tucker’s racist rant:
“Yet there’s a potentially even more striking hypocrisy here: didn’t Tucker with her accusation admit that some incompetent black people are hired exclusively because of the color of their skin, and they don’t get fired for exactly the same reason? As such, wasn’t Tucker accidentally making a case AGAINST affirmative action?”
The answer Noel is “of course”. However, the anger and hate for some on the Left are so powerful that it blinds them from logic.
The strongest hate from the Left is reserved for women and people of color that disagree with the Progressive views. This further proof of the cancer growing within the Progressive movement.

1945 – General Dwight D. Eisenhower – As General Eisenhower toured one or the liberated death camps in Germany in 1945 he made a prophetic statement:
“Get it all on record now – get the films – get the witnesses -because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened.”
2010 – White House Correspondent Helen Thomas – In May, 2010 on the White House grounds Ms. Helen Thomas said:
“Tell them [the Jews] to get the hell out of Palestine.”
“They [Jews in Israel] should go home…. To Poland, Germany.”
Ms. Thomas, Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and those in Turkey responsible for the conflict off of Israel’s coast last week are the “bastards” General Eisenhower was concerned about over 65 years ago. The Progressives who support these “bastards” are willing participants in this attempt to re-write history.

Helen Thomas, the White House reporter and unabashed Liberal, resign her position today from Hearst Corporation after her anti-Semitic rant last week was caught on video. As the photo shows, President Obama seemed to have a warm relationship with Ms. Thomas. This would not be disturbing as a chance relationship with a bigot can happen to anyone. But when considered in totality, Barack Obama has had too many relationships with unscrupulous characters to have occurred by chance.
Anthony Van Jones was appointed by Obama as his “Green Jobs Czar”. Jones, a avowed Communist once said:, “I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was like, This is what I need to be a part of”. After the information of Van Jones got out to the press, he was forced to resign.
Reverend Jeremiah Wright was Obama’s pastor for 20 years. Obama remained in his racist church until Wright’s bigotry got public attention, after which Obama threw Wright under the bus.
Father Michael Pfleger, a radical Catholic priest is an old Obama crony from Chicago. Pfleger is also good buddies with fellow Chicagoan Luis Farrakhan, who is a racist and anti-Semite..
William Ayers, a founding member of the radical group the Weather Underground, was on a Board with Obama.
ACORN, the disgraced gang was disbanded this year after it became involved with various criminal activities. Obama previously worked for ACORN and remained close to the organization.
The above partial list of associates should have made Barack Obama unfit for the Presidency. History will write about how this man with so many unscrupulous relationships duped the mainstream media and electorate into believing he was not tainted by their radical and bigoted beliefs.

Over decades Progressives on the Left have drifted towards an anti-Israel and sometimes anti-Semitic positions. They have excused the actions of anti-Semites within their circle including the likes of Jesse Jackson, Reverend Wright and Luis Farrakhan. The mainstream Left has camouflaged these attitudes, but some are now coming out of the closet. One unabashed “proud to be a liberal” Helen Thomas this week said publicly what many Progressives feel about Israel and Jews, as captured on the video below.
Over the years the Left has produced a narrative that racism and anti-Semitism comes from the Right. While this was the case decades ago, recent indications prove otherwise. Progressives created another narrative with “soft racisms” that indicates certain groups of people just can’t make it without the governmental assistance and have then made them wards of the state. Now we have plan old fashion anti-Semitism going public with the latest example coming from Leftist icon Helen Thomas who stated outside the White House:
Reporter’s question: Any comments on Israel?
Thomas’s answer: “Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine.”
Reporter’s question: Where should they go?
Thomas’s answer: “They [Jews in Israel] should go home…. To Poland, Germany.”
Thomas’s comments are not only anti-Semantic, but more importantly instructive as they publically state the real intent of the Palestinians and many of their Progressive allies. Unlike their publically stated position of a “two-state solution”, they do not accept Israel’s right to exist, period. The Left has refused to call the Palestinians on this, either because they agree with the position or willful dumbness.
We can expect many on the Left to come out with excuses for Ms. Thomas’s rant. Some will blame her age, others will parse her words. That will not change the fact that she is an anti-Semite. While the Left has shown zero tolerance for racism coming from the Right, they constantly have given passes to those on the Left. Those that give such passes are they themselves guilty of racism.

An independent press is crucial for a strong democracy. Unfortunately, this country’s mainstream news media has abdicated its independence. The public’s acquiescence to this action is even of more concern to me.
As far back as I can remember, the mainstream news media has always been Left leaning. However, up until recent years, the major networks have tried to maintain some semblance of independent journalism. Those efforts are now gone. The following are but a few examples of the blatant bias the networks now show: Read the rest of this entry »
