Helen is Gone: Now Maybe The Eight-Day Clock Can Tick Again

In Disappearing Ink on 10/06/2010 at 06:08

In her sixty plus year Helen hasn’t had an objective opinion on anything, and especially not on Israel. Helen is an Arab and she hates Israel.

Talent hasn’t ever been a big issue with Helen, she has little, but her politics made her the perfect mascot for the elite media at the presidential mansion. How does a press secretary gun the gas pedal and put tire tracks up the back of a little old lady who looks like your–well someone’s–grandmother? Her status as the “First Lady” of the Washington press corps was achieved the old fashioned way: she outlived the rest.

Over the course of America’s war with Islam Helen has repeated given aid and comfort to our enemies and undermined our CIA’s efforts to obtain intelligence that will stop at nothing to destroy us.

During her six decades in Washington Thomas has leveled unsubstantiated charges at anyone who has dared to be descent in the face of the rampant decline of decency and decried traditional American values. She has been responsible–as have many in the Washington Press Corps–for the lives of U.S. soldiers and CIA operatives on the field of battle. Helen hates traditional America.

But this week Helen blew it big time. She is anti Semitic and she has finally copped to it.

That and only that is the reason Hearst Newspapers gave her the boot, not because she is anti-Semitic mind you, but because the entire industry is rife with Jew haters and Helen inadvertently ratted them out.

“They are occupied,” Helen said of the Palestinians, a people that did not exist in history prior to the 20th century.

Where have we heard that term before? Occupied. We have heard it every night on news broadcasts since Israeli’s took back the West Bank, the Golan Heights and the Gaza Strip in 1967. Bethlehem is considered occupied territory, a town that has held enormous historical significance to Jews for 4,000 years, and to Christians for 2,000. It is the City of David. Jericho is also occupied. Tell me what right Muslims have to these cities in history?

The United Nations established Israel’s boundaries from a 1917 League of Nations covenant, and says the Golan Heights, Gaza and the West Bank belong to the Palestinians. And because the UN says it Helen believes it.

Helen issued an apology after the fact for her hateful remarks against Israel and the Jewish people:

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.

Right. File that in the same can you used for Jane Fonda’s Vietnam apology.

I suppose I should take no pleasure in the downfall of another human being, but in Helen’s case I’ll make an exception. When I think of the thousands of boys who died in Vietnam while she slandered them in her columns, when I think of the dead CIA agents she helped put in their graves, when I think of the 2,000-year plight of Jews around the world to regain their homeland, I take great pleasure in dumping on Helen Thomas.

Goodbye, Helen, maybe Jake Tapper will miss you, but we will not. You were a hack.
