I've just sent the following to another site:
William Rivers Pitt is wrong about Helen Thomas's remarks being "stupid". Her remarks reflected what she thought, and what anyone who has even a grain of perception about the current Middle East crisis knows to be accurate. No one—not Britain, not the United States, not the United Nations—repeat: no one had the right to superimpose the Israeli state on the Palestinians. In light of the way that the "Chosen People" have previously behaved in their host countries, it was a cynical, idiotic idea that was doomed to fail. It was almost certainly Lord Balfour's payback to the Zionists who aided Britain in persuading the United States to enter the "Great War" on its side.
Helen Thomas spoke the truth, and, like many before her, she has paid the price.
Earlier today I posted an appreciation to Helen Thomas. It started off with the following paragraph...
A name emerged this week on all newswires, that of Rabbi David Nessenoff. He was the man representing a group called Rabbilive. It was he that set up Helen Thomas, a set up that has been resounding throughout the world as anti Semitism. A set up that embarassed Thomas enough to resign from her position as White House Press Correspondent.
I tried to find some information about this so-called rabbi but found nothing on Google other than his smear campaign against Ms. Thomas. But, one of my readers came to the rescue by sending me a link about the racist background of this man. It is presented here with thanks to Hubris for linking it in his comment. We can see now that the set up was obviously intentional, the man is a master at turning racism into a joke. Racism is not funny!
Rabbi Who Recorded Helen Thomas Now Suffers From His Own Viral Video Past
Welcome to the second chapter of the story of Rabbi David Nesenoff. America first got to know this man as the guy who recorded Helen Thomas on his flip-cam saying what many believed to be offensive comments regarding Jews. But just just as a pendulum swings both ways, the nature of viral video swings back to reveal Mr. Nesenoff in what many will surely see as an offensive and stereotypical portrayal of Mexican-Americans in a hackneyed weatherman shtick.
This video was published three months ago, and is just now surfacing, thanks in part to the website Race Wire, who presents some background on Nesenoff and Thomas, then presents the comedy bit thusly:
Anyway, here's a video from February of this year in which Rabbi Nesenoff dons a terrible Mexican impression and makes a lot of jokes about being detained by ICE. You've got a stronger stomach than me if you can make it past the one about being a dishwasher. What is it with these gotcha-guys and wigs?
It's hard to get through the entire video, mostly because its just not at all funny. But there are plenty of ethnic stereotypes at play here, namely for the dishwashing jokes (Mexican laborers wash dishes? Hilarious!) To be clear, there is no comparison to the following failed attempt at comedy and the comments made by Helen Thomas (which lead to her sudden retirement earlier today.)
