White House Press Corps Dean & Leading Media Anti-Semite Helen Thomas Resigns

Update 6/9/2010 - There have been numerous public comments made in regard to Helen Thomas' resignation / firing.  Far to many to print.  She seems to have been like cancerous growth that once removed now everyone want to express an opinion. If she had dropped over in the press corps with a heart attack, the right would have been somewhat less outspoken out of common decency and the left, instead of treating  her like the plague, would be writing reams of laudatory comments.  And, her White House Press Room chair might have been retired to a Smithsonian  museum.

Below are a few comments for posterity complements of The Patriot Post. Regardless, we now redirect our attention to the main players of liberal socialistic elitism: Barack Obama, his staff and appointees, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi and their accomplices :
"[Helen Thomas's] tone was nasty, and her 'questions' usually meant more as insults than as requests for information. Still, presidents and journalists alike bowed and scraped before her, as if she were the Queen of All Media. Her reign ended with an implosion." -- Media Research Center president Brent Bozell

"A generous person might forgive a one-off 'slip of the tongue,' but Helen Thomas has a long history of questioning and opposing anything Israel does in its own defense. While not all criticism of Israel should be translated as anti-Semitism, Thomas' rhetoric over the years seems to betray a deep-seated hatred of Jews." -- columnist Cal Thomas

"The effort to destroy the Jewish state has many fronts. One front is in Iran, where the maniacal regime that has repeatedly promised to 'wipe Israel off the map' marches inexorably toward a nuclear bomb. Another is in Gaza, from which Hamas has lobbed 10,000 missiles into Israeli cities. Yet another front, the most insidious, is comprised of the propaganda arm of the Palestinian movement. And this front thrives for only one reason -- the complicity of the world press and the so-called 'international community.' It was the propaganda arm that staged the 'Freedom Flotilla.'" -- columnist Mona Charen

"In modern America, everything is so complicated that we can't get simple things done. When you look at government -- the criminal justice system, the courts, the federal budget -- engines that used to work smoothly now are sputtering. They're all cog, no machine. That's why so many Americans are angry at the system -- it's all check, no balance." -- columnist Debra Saunders

"In Chicago politics, there's an old term for the publicly subsidized pay-offs and positions meted out to the corruptocrats' friends and special interests: boodle. In the age of Obama, Hope and Change is all about the boodle. So it was with the stimulus. And the massive national service expansion. And the health care bill. And the financial reform bill. And the blossoming job-trading scandals engulfing the White House. There's always been an ageless, interdependent relationship between Windy City politicos and 'goo-goos' (the cynical Chicago term for good government reformers). Chicago-style 'reform' has always entailed the redistribution of wealth and power under the guise of public service." -- columnist Michelle Malkin
[6/7/2010] Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: Liberal Hearst reporter Helen Thomas has been a fixture of the White House press corps for decades. Literally decades – she’s covered every president since Dwight Eisenhower. An outspoken liberal, Thomas has used her perch in the front row of the White House briefing room to hound presidents and press secretaries with leftwing diatribes, frequently aimed at Israel.

For example, in 2006 Thomas objected to the Bush Administration’s support of Israel during Hezbollah’s rocket attacks from Lebanon. During one press briefing, Thomas accused the U.S. of supporting the “collective punishment against all of Lebanon and Palestine.” Press Secretary Tony Snow responded, “Well, thank you for the Hezbollah view…”

Last month, Thomas did it again. While prowling the White House grounds for a story during the May 27th Jewish Heritage Celebration, Thomas became the story. Rabbi David F. Nesenoff asked Thomas if she had any comments on Israel. Thomas responded, “Tell them to get the h--- out of Palestine.” Thomas’ anti-Israel comments were captured on video and released late last week.

She went on to tell Rabbi Nesenoff that the land was occupied by the Israelis and that the Jews should “go home” to Poland and Germany. As Rabbi Nesenoff noted in a YouTube posting of Thomas’ remarks, “Six million Jews were killed ‘at home’ in Germany and Poland.”

It has been reported that when the Israeli Navy attempted to contact the Free Gaza flotilla to warn the ships that they were approaching a naval blockade, one response they got was, “Shut up, go back to Auschwitz.” It sounds like Helen Thomas would have felt right at home on the Free Gaza flotilla.

If you think a leftwing anti-Semite like Thomas is capable of reporting the news in an unbiased way, consider her question last week to White Press Secretary Robert Gibbs about the flotilla: “Our initial reaction to this flotilla massacre, deliberate massacre, an international crime, was pitiful. What do you mean you ‘regret’ when something should be so strongly condemned?” So in Helen Thomas’ mind, Israeli Seals acting in self-defense amounts to a “deliberate massacre.”

The agency that books speaking engagements for Thomas dropped her, and her scheduled graduation speech to a Maryland high school in the Washington, D.C., suburbs was cancelled. Craig Crawford, who co-authored a book a Thomas last year, released a statement saying he would no longer work with her. The White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) denounced Thomas’ comments as “outrageous and offensive.”

On the Bauer and Rose radio show yesterday, we devoted a significant portion of our time to Thomas’ outburst and her history of anti-Israel remarks. We called for the Hearst Corporation to fire her and for the White House to revoke her press pass. This morning, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs called her remarks, “offensive and reprehensible.” I’m pleased to write that shortly after noon today, Hearst announced Helen Thomas’ resignation “effectively immediately.”
Gary Bauer is is a conservative family values advocate and serves as president of American Values and chairman of the Campaign for Working Families.  He submitted the above in an email to the ARRA News Service Editor. Bauer was a former Republican presidential candidate and served as President Ronald Reagan’s domestic policy adviser.
