Hezbollah Helen: Jews need to “go back to Poland and Germany” (UPDATE: THOMAS “APOLOGIZES”)

Posted by: ST on June 4, 2010 at 4:28 pm

What I have to say about this really isn’t for public consumption (via @Rhetorican and other Twitter friends):

Surprised? Don’t be.

And this woman is still a member of the official WH Press Corps because …?

Update – 7:32 PM: Thomas posted this on her website (via @snarkandboobs):

Helen Thomas issued the following statement today: “I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.”

Not.buying it.

    What an absolutely disgusting woman.

    Jimmy Carter in a wig. Figuratively and literally!!

  2. sonsofjohnburns says:

    Say what you want but she was awesome as the senile Aunt in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.

  3. nina says:

    She is disgusting.

  4. Lorica says:

    Talk about a press corpse!! /shiver she is hideous.

    I am still amazed that Jews in this country vote Democrat. It’s not like the Dems are actually on the side of their people. – Lorica

  5. Anti-Semitism is running rampant right now. It’s scary to think about how many probably cheered Thomas on as they heard of her remarks or watched the video. The Gaza flotilla incident really brought them out from under the rocks.

  6. jim masterson says:

    Helen’s been bitter ever since JFK refused to give her the High Hard One.

  7. TruthBTold says:

    Too late Helen the cat is out of the bag, or the hag :d

  8. Pasadena Phil says:

    In the one-world without borders Helen Thomas and her fellow leftists embrace, a world populated by “citizens of the world”, by what rationale can one world citizen tell another to return to “where they belong”?

    Maybe we should tell the native Americans to go back to their native Mongolia and return the New World to the Spanish conquerors who stole the two continents fair and square. All one has to do to expose the faulty logic is to apply to a different example. That is why Thomas is now a certified anti-Semite.

    Her apology is nothing more than an acknowledgment that she shouldn’t have made that statement and that she is embarrassed. But we now know what she really thinks and that is what matters. There is no getting that genie back in the bottle. She did not misspeak. It was not a misunderstanding. She meant exactly what she said.

    This pathogen is the epitome of our vaunted “fourth estate.”Watch the apology tour and the proverbial circle of the wagons by her peers in the Media.Anti semitism is the proper narrative when the press speaks of Jews and the Nation of Israel.You will not find the truth,and/or objectivity from Helen Thomas,only death to Israel.

  10. MikeyDe says:

    You stupid senile old bitch. You have nothing constructive to say. The Israelis are the only friends we have in that area. Most arabs would stab us in the back if they get a chance. My sister and I are discussing returning to Italy where our parents came from. What the hell, if we have to live under socialism we might as well enjoy the food!

  11. MarieinMD says:

    Her words are like spent arrows – once out they can NEVER be returned to the quiver!

  12. ed says:

    Jews who vote Democrap deserve everything Barak Hussein and the Progressive / Left – who’ve always hated Jews – give them.


  13. Brian says:

    Somewhere, Marge Schott is applauding.

  14. mike says:

    Shove it Helen…

  15. Dave B says:

    Did anyone tell Helen that she issued an apology? They’ll probably wait till she’s done with her nap.

  16. bob magnan says:

    I accept her apology. I pray for her. I recognize senile dementia when I see it. It is sad, but her day is past. Let us help her leave the public stage, and a long career, with dignity.

  17. Tsukasa says:

    It’s a strong statemen for sure. Said out of strong feelings. Not sure it helps things, especially by people who feel strongly the other way, but yeah, she said it.

    I think there’s some truth to it, however, especially about the origin of how Israel was set up, ect. Of course, the West also had a huge hand in all of that, and they also share the burden of the displacement of people.

    The status quo cannot be maintained forever. Eventually, Israel will have to welcome the displaced people, and forge a government together. I don’t know what the future holds for naming the area, but the best solution is togetherness, not displacement and hate.

  18. Jo says:

    Ditto on everything said—what a stupid, bitter, liberal, senile old hag. And when she does finally bite the dust, she will probably lie in state in the White House as a venerable old ‘highly respected and honored’, yadda, yadda, yadda token of the press corps. Hard to believe she is still alive and being a menace.

  19. martin j smith says:

    Helen Thomas at 94 is now able to reveal the truth of who she is. Sometimes for better and worse people control their true sentiments even though you might guess what they are. Her mental state ( or lack of ) has revealed the true Helen Thomas. There are sadly many others out there who are just as Anti-Jewish as she but they have not either gotten too drunk or too old to reveal themselves yet. But acti8ons do speak speak louder then words. The ughliness of the mental state of some of our pol “leaders” especially those on the LEFT refelct exactly what HT said. including those of BHO. That is my view. Anyway I am curious to see what the MSM does in dealing with her. I am not holding my breath.

  20. Dana says:

    If the lovely Miss Thomas believes that the Jews should “go home,” to Germany and Poland, where we good Christians exterminated six million of them, and to the United States, where we denied Jews fleeing the Nazis entrance, one might ask where she thinks the Germans and Poles who live on the land she’d give to the Jews would go. After all, under the “Thomas Plan,” she’d be stuffing seven million new people into central and eastern Europe, and there are already people living there.

    Of course, if “home” for the Jews is Germany and Poland, we have to ask how they got here in the first place, and the answer is that they were expelled from their native land, the Holy Land to which they have returned, by the Romans. Perhaps Miss Thomas, whose parents were Lebanese immigrants, ought to leave the United States and return to Lebanon. After all, she’s living on land stolen from the Indians!

    Like our esteemed hostess, I ain’t buying her “apology.” Someone like Helen Thomas doesn’t come up with an off-the-wall statement like she did without meaning it. She’s 89 years old now; she ought to have the courage and the honesty to stand up for what she really believes.

    Actually, some hunters do try to recover used arrows, and will reuse them if they are undamaged. In this case, though the lovely Miss Thomas has shot her bolt, there’s absolutely no reason she can’t use the same arrow again.

  22. Kate says:

    So Helen is a bit demented…but even demented people have opinions. Let’s take Hitler, as an example. His opinions of the Jews was an idea called the Final Solution to get rid of the Jews. Or let’s take Czar Nicholas’ pograms to displace Jews and send them to who knows where, just get them out of Russia…then Lenin and Stalin took over (two very demented men) and they continued with gulags and deportations. If you were lucky you escaped and got to Israel. Those that came to the US will tell you living in Jerusalem/Israel would have been their number one choice.

    So Helen’s view is in perfect alignment with other demented people over time. No need for an apology Helen, we can recognize your hatred a mile away. We will accept your apology for what it is worth..nothing, because you did not ask for forgiveness and change you candor or politics.

  23. Sean says:

    The only thing Helen is sorry about is misjudging where the Democratic Dictatorship is. She thought she could express her sociopath feelings and a flap would not ensue.

    She’s 94? That would put her in her early 20’s during WW2. Hmmm she was most likely the first and only female german soldier to work in a camp. She clearly demonstrates the disposition, mindset and propensity they had for genocide and her age fits

    Helen Thomas=Garbage in, Garbage out

  24. Tex says:

    Can you imagine the firestorm that would have erupted if a Fox News reporter had made such an outrageous comment? But the MSM will make sure to protect one of their own and bury this story quickly.

  25. Elder of Zion says:

    Give her a break, her father was killed by the Nazis.

    Yes, friendly fire happened in Germany, too.

  26. Joe says:

    Okay she should have not said that but its on alot of peoples mind you think its cool to use power against people they to me are sinners and will pay in the afterlife do they not remember being occupied this was not to long ago So how is it ok?
    I think if america was not helping there would be nothing to say because most of their neighbors dislike them since they feel they are superior in whose eyes. Be carefull it says in the holy books the hebrews will be punished 3 times by God egypt- slaves, hitler and nazis. we should live together shoulder to shoulder as brothers and sisters of God. He sees all dont forget and use 9-11 as an excuse to hate all arabs terrorists come from everywhere. That is a stereotype like all white people cant jump lol…

  27. deb says:

    Some of you need to look up the word Semite. I see no reason to believe Thomas is anti-herself.
