Sebastian Gorka: Yeah, it’s funny, I went back to the White House this week to meet the president and I had to use the media entrance. I used to work for the president, it’s so weird. People don’t realize there’s a whole separate entrance to the White House for journalists. I guess I’m not a journalist but I’m in the media world. But I’ve always loved talk radio. From a child growing up in the U.K., I used to listen until the wee hours of the night to talk radio. I think talk radio belongs to conservatives now after the last 20, 30 years of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, my colleagues at Salem, Dennis Prager, Hugh Hewitt, Larry Elder. It’s an incredible place to be at right now and to be given three hours a day on the Salem channels, it’s called “America First,” 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the East Coast. You can listen to it at sebgorka.com. It’s on iTunes, look for “America First.” But look, I had cigars with Dennis Prager a week ago, he said, “You know what our job is, Seb, our job, we get paid to tell people what we think three hours a day.” And it’s fun, a lot of fun.
Bluey: It is great. Thank you for doing it. Because as you noted, talk radio is really so important in terms of getting the message out there. I know you have been focused on that, it’s obviously something that we do at The Daily Signal. What would say in terms of where we are in today’s world with the media? Post-dirty cop-Mueller report, kind of in this period where Democrats seem to be talking about impeachment, you have a whole host of ideas coming out from the 20 candidates who are running for president... https://www.dailysignal.com/2019/05/16/sebastian-gorka-shares-how-he-thinks-we-should-fight-socialism/?utm_source=TDS_Email&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=MorningBell&mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiTmpNd05qWXhOemd3Wm1NNCIsInQiOiJqT3oyTjU2MloySmRqV2dPTGRGUkQ3a2d0S0pCQzNnTHlLZDYyVlwvOGo1V09zYzY1VGlZV2I4ZGRVeG9UdUhmYUpDY2pMYjZUdmUrRFVGMzhXaFdrOWZIUWRJdHJ1R292TkFhXC9maDVWWVdBeCtYa3R0Qnp4Nnh1WkVPXC90MERKdCJ9
Rashida Tlaib and worthless-Ilhan Omar have already in their short congressional careers made it clear that they are deeply anti-Semitic. Both women are Muslim, which surely plays a key role in this hatred of Jews. Neither woman is committing “gaffes” or simply “misspeaking.” Their bile represents their true position.
The latest controversy surrounding worhtless-Tlaib began with the following comment: “There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out… And just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways. But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away, and it was forced on them.”
Got that? The Holocaust was a tragedy, but mainly for the Palestinians.
The Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein has a point-by-point rebuttal in which he sums up all the factual errors in Tlaib’s assertion. He concludes, “worthless-Tlaib’s claims that her Arab ancestors provided a ‘safe haven’ to Jews after the Holocaust ignores the Jewish presence in the region and efforts to establish a Jewish state that predated the Holocaust, ignores that her ancestors allied with Hitler at the time of the Holocaust, and ignores decades of violence and terrorism directed at Israel both before, during, and after the Holocaust.” Moreover, her comments are meant solely to delegitimize Israel.
Naturally, worthless-Tlaib didn’t back down. In fact, she claimed to be the victim of racists who objected to her statement: “You know, I got a text from a friend who’s like, ‘Hey, next time, you know, really clarify. Maybe talk like a fourth grader because maybe the racist idiots would understand you better.’”
It’s no surprise to see worthless-Tlaib’s anti-Semitism wrapped in gross revisionist history, or to see her double down and call her critics racists. worthless-Omar likewise charged critics with “Islamophobia.” What makes this episode stand out is that House Speaker Nancy Pulosi also backed up worthless-Tlaib. She accused Republicans of “desperate attempts to smear [worthless-Tlaib and] misrepresent her comments.” In fact, she demanded, they “should apologize to Rep. worthless-Tlaib & the American people for their gross misrepresentations.” House Minority Leader scumbag-Steny Hoyer joined her, insisting that Trump and congressional Republicans “owe [worthless-Tlaib] an apology.”
In short, this is the effluent of a party that thrives on identity politics. Earlier this year, Pulosi had to deal with how to respond to worthless-Omar’s anti-Semitism. The House ended up passing a vacuous resolution — with the votes of worthless-Tlaib and worthless-Omar! — generically condemning hatred and bigotry. Now, in a calculated political move, both Pulosi and scumbag-Hoyer have circled the wagons, defending the Democrats’ increasingly favored brand of hate and accusing others of the true sin.
