Imagine if an American reporter spouted, “Blacks should get the hell out of America and go back to Africa!” His/her career would be over instantly and the person would certainly not be glorified and mourned when dying. Well, our perverse, upside down, and politically correct society’s media has honored such a type of person.
It was horrible to watch, listen to, and read all the glowing epitaphs showered on former reporter Helen Thomas. She was painted as some kind of heroic reporter, willing to “stand up to presidents” (as she was usually accorded the honor of sitting in the front row of reporters at presidential news conferences).
She was nothing more than a disgusting ignorant racist bigot who should’ve been kicked out of the business of journalism years ago. This is Helen Thomas in her own words, advocating ethnic cleansing:
Helen Thomas Apologizes for Saying Jews Should ‘Get the Hell Out of Palestine’
… “Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine.”
Thomas went on to say that the Palestinian people “are occupied and it’s their land” and that Israelis should “go home” — to Poland, Germany, America “and everywhere else.” …
She offered the apology only to try to save her sagging career (along with her sagging facial structure). Her original ugly statement was also a clear indictment of her own ignorance.
The word “Palestine” was invented by the angry Roman emperor Hadrian. He wanted to insult Jews by renaming their Jewish homeland called “Judea” into a perversion of the word “Philistine,” which refers to a Greek people. The Philistines were old enemies of the Jews. There is no “Palestine” nor is there a historical basis for calling a bunch of Arab immigrants into the Holy Land “Palestinians.”
Jews have at least 4000 years of proven continuous history and presence in Israel, while Arabs and their political ideology called “Islam” only showed up in the Holy Land in the 7th century A.D.
We do not celebrate anyone’s death. That type of behavior is for the likes of Helen Thomas. But we do not bury the truth nor do we whitewash racists.
