May Helen Thomas live a long and very public life as a representative of the American Left.
There is so much to learn about our progressive friends from the random ramblings of one of the most admired White House correspondents of our time. Her supposed slip of the tongue and backhanded apology reveal what most liberals really think about Israel and that is this:
Liberals mostly believe what other liberals tell them to believe – that is a symptom of this particular political mental disorder.
Here is an example of what I have noticed about the crazy left.
They have a very sophomoric code they live by and it can be summed up in a sentence or two, except for complicated issues which require permission to believe from above.
An America-hating liberal acts on impulse in every situation presented to him or her or one who is in transition. That formula is so simple it is almost laughable but here it is:
1. What is perceived by decent people to be right is always wrong.
2. What is clearly immoral is always the best choice.
3. Your opponent is always wrong, stupid, and always evil.
4. Words, history, mathematics, or anything based on logic can be re-interpreted to fit any left wing/progressive agenda or situation.
There are only two exceptions to the code of the left and the most important is – never let anything compromise your own, personal advancement.
Number two is to always look to celebrity liberals for your opinions on anything more complicated than right is wrong. This is why if you pay attention to the news it takes liberals several days to “find their voice” on any sudden political events or out of the ordinary happenings around the world.
So it is to people like Helen Thomas that liberals look to for how they should think about Israel and the Gaza Strip.
Now for a conservative like myself, I like to expand on Helen’s point about Jews needing to “go back to Poland and Germany…”
Did she have any specific places in mind?
Could Helen Thomas have meant historic locations for Jews to go back to in Germany?
Here are some locations:
How about these Polish re-settlement locations for Jews in Helen Thomas’s new world order:
Auschwitz-Birkenau - Oswiecim-Brzezinka
Dzierzazna & Litzmannstadt
Gross-Rosen - Rogoznia
Kulmhof - Chelmno
May Helen Thomas always be welcome in the American news media as a shining example of just what progressives are really about.
