I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Helen Thomas on winning the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
And let us all take this opportunity to celebrate hate and anti-Semitism, in recognition of Thomas’ integrity that has indeed brought her so far.
Hate thy neighbour!
Go back to your own country! (Everybody but the Aboriginal People who were here first.)
See, I feel like an achiever already.
For those who forget, and wish to re-acquaint themselves with the fine art of achieving hate, you can google Helen Thomas – or Hitler – to learn more. But for now, let’s refresh our memories to help understand how the 90-year-old of Lebanese decent has come so far.
The legend that is Helen Thomas has been called everything from the Dean of the White House Press Corps to the Queen of the White House Press Corps. Now, hopefully she will always be remembered, not for her interviews with American presidents from Obama to Johnson, but for her views on the Jews.
As you may recall, when asked if she had any comments on Israel, she said, “Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine.”
Then came the follow-up question. “Any better comments on Israel?”
Her response - probably what really secured the Council’s award.
“Remember, these people are occupied and it's their land. It’s not German [sic]. It’s not Poland... They should go home.”
(“Home” being where six million Jews were killed.)
Some of you may recall, before she was disgraced and dropped by Hearst papers, Thomas apologized for these remarks saying, "I deeply regret my comments regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians.”
But, the lucky lady gets to celebrate that which she apologized for come October 9th, at CAIR’s Leadership Conference and 16th Annual Fundraising Banquet, where she will receive her Lifetime Achievement Award for hate and anti-Semitism.
And hopefully the full $30,000 will be raised to get a statue erected in her likeness, at the Arab American National Museum in Michigan.
You just can’t over-honour an over-achiever.
Not to sound disingenuous or flippant however, I do not want to leave out the Council for American-Islamic Relations, as it too deserves our congratulations.
Thank you for rewarding hate.
Thank you for perpetuating hatred.
And, thank you for making anti-Semitism a goal.
Hopefully, this will help achievers like Helen Thomas, and yourselves, reach the type of Mid-East peace you so respectfully demand.
