The jaw-dropping words from the 89-year-old Hearst Newspapers columnist hit the Internet on YouTube Friday and sparked a firestorm of controversy. LINK
Jaw dropping doesn’t begin to cover it. Her remarks were beyond apology. She expressed her true feelings and they were vile. Funny thing about racist, anti-Semitic bigots, they come in all shapes and sizes. Even little old lady size. How could anyone imagine such a little old lady could be capable of such vile hate speech? After all that’s what her comments reflect. Her hatred of Israel and Jewish people in general. Helen Thomas is a nasty old woman. Period.
I find it utterly grotesque when liberals who engage in hatred and spew hate speech even bother to apologise. What for? Do you think we are that naive? No one believes your lame apology for a split second Helen.
What I am waiting for now is for Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to chain themselves to the White House fence chanting “No justice, no peace”. Or even better, 5,000 illegal Mexican high school kids from L.A. to riot in downtown Washington demanding Helen Thomas resign for being “racially and culturally’ insensitive. After all name another American could survive such an outburst?
I say we give old Helen the Trent Lott test. If she passes, she can stay. It’s disgusting and a national disgrace if the White House allows Helen Thomas to ever step foot inside America’s house again. Such a person is to be condemned and shunned. Look at poor Don Imus. But I guess it’s still Ok to attack Jews these days eh? At a minimum she should be fired.
President Bush was right in relegating her to the back bench. President Obama should relegate her to a park bench. If she had any decency she would save him the trouble.

We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France. We shall fight on the seas and oceans. We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; WE SHALL NEVER SURRENDER! -Winston Churchill

Courage isn't the absence of fear. Rather it's the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
