CSPAN Allows Anti-Semitic Comments To Go Unfettered

It’s truly amazing that the media hates Israel and Jews so much, and that no one calls them on it.

Check out this shocking call and comment about Israel and American Jews on CSPAN.

Comments made by Michael Scheuer, a clear anti-Israel and anti-semitic commentator, with the CSPAN host merely sitting there.

Hateful Double Standard

It happens once in a while.  DK is absolutely right in his latest post.  The Jewish Journal discusses

On a Los Angeles FM radio talk show, the following aired recently:

A caller identifying himself as Mohammed said, “I believe that so-called Israel should be annihilated totally, wiped off the map … I hope that Iran has the gall to nuke and exterminate them so they go back to Europe.

“And as long as there is one Palestinian man, woman or child, there will be no peace in Palestine … as far as I’m concerned, so-called Israel should be exterminated from the face of the earth. That’s my personal opinion. They have no right to exist….”

Augustin Cebada, the show’s host, did not interrupt or argue. He let Mohammed finish, then said, “OK, maybe those are your opinions, and there’s probably a lot of people out there who agree with you. We have free speech in this country….”

That’s a nice idea, however the host does not allow this “free speech” to everyone

Cebada later took a call from Dan, who objected to what he’d just heard: “When a caller calls with that kind of hatred, that kind of Nazi rhetoric, that Israel should be wiped off the map, that’s what fuels the fire, and you people did not respond by saying, ‘This is the kind of hatred we don’t need.’ And that’s what’s fueling the hatred, isn’t it?”

This time, Cebada cut the caller off, saying: “There’s a lot of hatred in your voice, Dan, in your tone. This program offers a forum so people can express what they’re feeling….”

While DK’s point is more focused on the Hispanics now getting into Islam, but personally I am sick and tired of the double standard in this country.  If the same action is committed by a Jew and a Muslum the Jew is barbaric but the Muslum is “expressing himself” or “merely different” and we must be tolerant of their views.

This is not limited to the Jews/Muslim issue.  The biggest double standard right now is Republican/Democrat.  Obama makes a special Olympics joke and people are unhappy but aren’t calling for his head.  If Bush had down the same thing there would be protests in the street.  But of course we accept Obama’s apology because he is our hero right?

Democrats go nuts when Rush Limbaugh said he wants Obama to fail (which isn’t what he said btw, he said he wants his policies to fail),  but when James Carville a major Democratic strategist said that he wanted Bush to fail it doesn’t even make the news.  Nice double standard.

I’m not saying one needs to be Republican or Democrat, Jew or Muslim, but what I am saying is that when we have a standard for one we must have the same standard for everyone else.  Its the true meaning of freedom.

Anything else is just hate.

America Should be as Civilized as Europe?

I think it’s somewhat ironic that within the first week of publishing this blog I already agree with DK on something. In his most recent post Kvetcher merely posts an article about attacks on Jews in Paris in response to Israel’s attacks on Gaza.  Without saying a single word of commentary DK brings up a very important issue.  

Constantly I hear from people how civilized Europe is, how we should have no death penalty like them, how we should have government healthcare like them, and so on and so on.  Yet, while those may or may not be things worth striving for (they aren’t), protecting a country’s citizens from attack is a far more important issue then whether or not the government pays for you to see a doctor.  

A country like France that doesn’t allow religious people of any kind to wear religious garments to public school (kippa, kafia, cross necklace) shouldn’t be telling countries like America that have real freedom that we are “immoral” or “backward”.

Try getting your own extremest populations under control, and start protecting your citizens before trying to tell the rest of us how to live.  Oh, thats right, they are only Jews…they don’t matter.
