I will not be covering President Obama’s remarks today. I will have an announcement later in the week regarding the president that many of you will find shocking. Until people read that column, they will not fully understand why I chose to publish today’s column before the president’s remarks. This column was written before he spoke.
One last hater needs to be called out right now, and it is not anybody who spoke at the memorial.
For those on the left whining and crying their little liberal eyes out and pleading over “civility” and “toning it down,” sit and down and shut up.
One day I will stand before God (Yes liberals, conservatives are creatures of God as well), and I will have to answer for remarks. I am prepared to be judged and stand by my words.
The left exploited the death of innocent people, and some of those miscreants are backtracking in the face of the only thing guiding liberals to begin with…polls.
Others are doubling down.
Well my poker chips are being pushed to the center of the table. I am all in.
This is a fight (verbally, for you dumb@sses unable to understand prose from actual violence), and conservatives had either bring the brass knuckles or get punched out permanently.
What are the proper terms for blaming the Arizona shooting in any way on conservatives such as Limbaugh, Beck, and Palin?
The terms are slander and libel. The only purpose of slander and libel is to destroy.
As always, Sir Charles of Krauthammer, a trained psychiatrist, gets it perfectly right.
Yet Sarah Palin took it one step further. The woman who for two years has had her family brutally and savagely attacked in every conceivable way short of bullets through their hearts has finally had enough.
Unlike the real hatred coming from the left, she did not attack anybody. She defender herself. What is she supposed to do, keep getting her eyes gouged out? Will her death finally be enough for liberals until they can move on to the next conservative to hound into the grave?
The left took several pounds of flesh, and she wants what little she has left to stay on her body.
She used the term “blood libel” to describe what is being done to her.
Blood libel is a hyper-charged terms. It is also deadly accurate in this case.
Alan Dershowitz, a liberal Democrat who I have been very critical of in the past, is backing Palin.
Blood libel was the notion of Christians claiming that Jews were committing murder, which was used to justify violence against Jews. Currently its roots are used by the Palesimians to claim that Jews are poisoning the water to murder Palesimian children. This is also used to justify violence against Jews.
Palin absolutely is a victim of abuse that goes far beyond anything normal. One anti-Palin reporter moved in next door to her so he could stalk her family. Is that normal?
T-shirts saying “abort Sarah Palin” are popular among the left. Have they ever apologized? Of course not.
Abe Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League started out by saying the following:
“It was inappropriate at the outset to blame Sarah Palin and others for causing this tragedy or for being an accessory to murder. Palin has every right to defend herself against these kinds of attacks.”
While I agree with this, Foxman is a day late and a dollar short. He is a liberal, and far too willing to accept ideological bigotry against conservatives. He should have been out in front at the very beginning, like he is when a liberal is criticized.
Then Foxman adds another comment.
“We wish that Palin had not invoked the phrase ‘blood-libel.’ ”
“He called it a phrase ‘fraught with pain in Jewish history.’”
As frustrating and inconsistent as Foxman is, I am not troubled by this comment. He does not attack Governor Palin. He has a right to educate people as to the term. Notice he does so in a civil way.
Not Congresswoman Debbie Wasseman-Schultz. She seems to think that her being Jewish gives her the right to speak for all Jews. Here is what her office had to say.
“’Palin’s comments either show a complete ignorance of history, or blatant anti-Semitism,’ said Jonathan Beeton, Ms. Wasserman Shultz’s spokesman. ‘Either way, it shows an appalling lack of sensitivity given Representative Giffords’s faith and the events of the past week.’”
Blatant anti-Semitism? Should she have been like Justice Clarence Thomas and called herself the victim of a “high tech lynching?” Or would she then have been called a racist.
Sarah Palin using the term “blood libel” may upset some liberal Jews. Will they bat an eyelash at Wasserman-Schultz implying that Palin is an anti-Semite?
Will Wasserman-Schultz apologize for this slur, a personal attack?
The left attacks Palin, she defends herself, and the left gets enraged at her defending herself.
I am proud to defend Sarah Palin and conservatives in general. I do so because the attacks on her are an attack on me.
If I ever had to choose between my Judaism and my political conservatism, I would choose Judaism every time. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has seen liberalism attack Judaism (Code Pink, J-Street), and she proudly threw her Judaism under the bus.
The idiotic article linked to above even has the following sentence:
“Jeremy Ben-Ami, president of a pro-Israel group called J Street, said that ‘when Governor Palin learns that many Jews are pained by and take offense at the use of the term, we are sure that she will choose to retract her comment, apologize and make a less inflammatory choice of words.’”
J-Street is not pro-Israel. It is an anti-Israel, Arab funded group seeking to undermine Israel. Ask even “Democrats for Israel” (I disagree with them on politics but they are legit on Israel) about J-Street.
I am not offended by Palin’s words. I am offended by Jeremy Ben Ami and his worshippers like Debbie Wasserman-Schultz claiming that they represent anything close to mainstream Judaism.
I want both of them to look my father in the eye. My dad is more than a Holocaust survivor. He is a guy who spent years being shot at just for being Jewish. Had he and my grandparents been caught, ovens awaited them. His opinion matters to me more than some leftist Congresswoman trying to score political points by doing what every liberal does…bash Sarah Palin for sheer sport.
My parents like Sarah Palin. They dislike Wasserman-Schultz. Palin stands up for Jews and Israel. Waserman-Schultz stands up for the Arabs running J-Street. She may not be anti-Israel, but at best she is a dupe, a dope, and a pawn.
(Her own father Larry Wasserman confessed that his daughter “had not been particularly active in the Jewish community before entering politics…” Her district contains elderly Jewish liberals who still think FDR is in charge. Remember, these are the enfeebled people who in 2000 voted for Pat Buchanan. )
Some on the left will now start blubbering about how I am being “vitriolic.”
No, I am defending a good decent woman against false charges. That is what being honorable is all about.
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz could have taken the Abe Foxman route. She could have expressed dismay without getting personal.
Instead, hiding behind her staff, she called Sarah Palin an anti-Semite.
That is blood libel.
I call on Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to condemn the anti-Semitism charge against Sarah Palin.
Knowing she will refuse to do so, I call on Jews everywhere to remember who our friends are.
If Jews were to be persecuted, Sarah Palin would stand up and defend us.
As for Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, her Palin-bashing, J-Street loving attitude speaks for its Self-hating Jewish self.
I continue to abhor all violence, but will not let leftist bullies like Wasserman-Schultz tell me who gets to speak and who doesn’t.
I will tone it down when she shuts her leftist Christian-hating, religion-baiting trap.
