Rosie O'Donnell Defends, Supports Helen Thomas
Adding Spin, Rosie O'Donnell Aligns With Hezbollah
What's the difference between Hezbollah's thugs and libtalker Rosie O'Donnell? Apparently, not much. While the terrorism lobby openly defends longtime White House reporter Helen Thomas, O'Donnell is offering similar praise and even going so far as to call her a victim of "political correctness".
The only real distinction: O'Donnell's willing to dance around Helen's anti-Semitic script a bit to make the message seem less bigoted.
Though there are many others on the left who are angry about the 89-year-old stalwart's sudden departure from the White House Press Corps, few are willing to go so far as to agree with her statement. From The Progressive, a more typical liberal response:
Yes, her recent comments were grossly insensitive.
To tell Jews that they should “get the hell out of Palestine” and go back to Germany and Poland was offensive in the extreme, after what Jews suffered there.
But did her recent comments require that she be tarred and feathered and run out on a rail?
She quickly and fulsomely apologized for her remarks, as she should have.
Rosie, however, is willing to go all the way: fresh from declaring "communism" as the answer to dealing with corporate misconduct in America, O'Donnell actually appears to agree that Jews should depart Israel for Germany and Poland, especially since (GET THIS) THE OVENS ARE GONE!
Thank goodness for that, what more incentive does anyone need to abandon Tel Aviv? Pack your bags, kids, we're leaving for Hamburg!
The obvious question: Rosie, did Jews live in the land that is now Israel before World War II?
Here, listen as Rosie & Friends (her producers who are for some reason given microphones) descend into unchartered depths of in-over-our-heads foolishness and depravity:
Rosie was originally hired to host a lifestyle show, but her far-left political agenda has now become the primary focus. Could it have been any other way?
By far the biggest mistake, however, has been the liberal use of producers as de facto co-hosts. With an amazing habit of making extreme statements that O'Donnell subsequently adopts as her own, they've proven to be her program's biggest flaw.
