On Rahm’s “Retards,” Meet His “Conservative,” Anti-Semitic, Airheaded, Lesser Counterpart

By Debbie Schlussel

**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****

I’m glad the conservative faux-outrage about Barack Obama Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel’s “f-ing retards” comment is finally dying down.  While, yes, the comment is offensive, as I’ve noted before it’s annoying to see conservatives become the PC speech police . . . but only when liberals use epithets for the mentally disabled.  Yup, it’s hypocritical, especially when a number of prominent and lesser-than conservative bloggers and organizations continue to pal around with and promote Emily Marie Zanotti a/k/a E. M. Zanotti, who committed the same offense.

Anti-Semitic Nut & Stalker Emily Zanotti, Far Right, w/ Pals

Mary Katharine Ham, Michelle Malkin & Melissa Clouthier

Zanotti,  an unstable woman who has been cyberstalking and harassing me for four years, proudly called me–on her website–a “special needs kid” in need of a “helmet” because I dared write on this site (and report to the FBI) about a Muslim woman who made several rape, torture, and death threats against me and my family, as well as Holocaust-denial statements.  Zanotti went on to praise the Muslim threats and Holocaust denial as “making some very valid points.” (And that was after Zanotti had to retract false statements she admitted she made up about me.  Then, she claimed she had several graduate and post-graduate degrees, when she had none at the time.) There is a reason why is known in many circles as “Za-Nutty.”

But what’s interesting is that this nutty woman was proudly employed by the Thomas More Law Center (where she spent all day long blogging instead of working and removed the time stamps to hide it from her boss), the Sam Adams Alliance (whose chief, Eric O’Keefe defended and praised Zanotti’s comments essentially calling me “retarded” and illegally used his non-profit organization to send Zanotti to campaign for Sarah Palin during the 2008 campaign), and Americans for Prosperity, which recently hosted Ms. Zanotti to give advice on online networking (the Chicago Young Republicans hosted a similar event with her).  Did she tell AFP attendees to call people “special needs kids” online and praise Muslim death, rape, and torture threats (as she did)?  Both AFP and Sam Adams Alliance are heavily involved in the Tea Party movement, and their knowing embrace of her lends validity to the claims that the Tea Party movement openly embraces anti-Semitism.  Zanotti was a speaker at a Michigan Tea Party protest.  SAA’s incompetent lawyer even sent me a threatening letter, admitting Zanotti is a liar but threatening to sue me if I wrote about her.

Zanotti’s reference to me as essentially “retarded” and her defense of death threats against me was praised as “snarky” by John Hawkins who owns and runs Right Wing News and Conservative Grapevine.  And Michelle Malkin, Mary Katherine Ham, and Melissa Clouthier continue to praise and befriend Zanotti. **** UPDATE: When I told Hawkins’ friend, Pamela Geller, about this, she said (in writing) that was “not cool,” but that she needed Hawkins for ad revenue he got her. So much for her professed claim to be against anti-Semitism. Only when it’s convenient for her. ****

Moreover, this nutcase recently filed a BS grievance against me with the Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission–a long, insane, rambling screed over almost a hundred pages–in an attempt to silence my free speech in writing about her four-year anti-Semitic stalking and defamation obsession with me.  The grievance will go nowhere, but notable is that Zanotti claims that she contacted several people who agreed to be “witnesses” against me.  Among the “witnesses listed” is “Ed Morrissey (webmaster for HotAir.com and employee of Michelle Malkin),” along with several employees of Sam Adams Alliance employees (Eric O’Keefe, John Tsarpalas, Paul Miller), John Hawkins, Melissa Clouthier, and Richard Thompson, who heads the Thomas More Law Center.

The trite old saying about “the company you keep” is so appropriate here, and all of these individuals are keeping company with a mentally ill cyberstalker who praises Muslim death, rape, and torture threats and Holocaust denial,  and called me “a special needs kid” for writing about it and reporting it to authorities.

I will be writing more about this insane woman, Emily M. Zanotti.  Stay tuned.  For now, it’s time to call conservatives’ bluffs about whether they are really concerned about the use of epithets regarding the mentally disabled.  If they were, Emily Zanotti would be shunned.  But she isn’t.  She’s been stalking me, reading my website, etc. for years, and she won’t go away.  Her one-sided obsession with me is sick, sick, sick.  Not to mention, veeeery creepy.

Not that Zanotti is important enough–she isn’t–but let’s see what Sarah Palin does when Zanotti continues to be involved in conservative causes and events.  I predict, nothing.

And thus Debbie, with phonies like Malkin and Ham you find fake conservatives!

Bob Porrazzo on February 4, 2010 at 2:35 pm

I would agree. The rage Rahm Emanuel’s remarks is pretty absurd. There are plenty of legitimate reasons to go after Mr. Emanuel, including his coordinated campaign to go after Fox News and intimidate the head of the CIA for partisan political purposes.

As for conservatives who show sympathy for Islamists, they are really beyond the pale. Grover Norquist is a classic example of someone who has gone over to the dark side, but whose pals will not accept this. We could also, bring up Dinesh D’Souza as another example of a “conservative” who has pandered to Islamists in the past, even though he has toned his fawning down somewhat as of late. I would say that most of posters have encountered Islamists on this site as well as others.

Worry01 on February 4, 2010 at 2:37 pm

    Would most of the posters here feel that such people were fit company, much less allies?

    Emily M. Zanotti does sound like a very strange woman. People who lie about degrees obtained or held should be immediately suspect in anyone’s eyes. If Zanotti is prepared to lie about something like that, what lesser lies would she have no compunction about dealing in?

    Conservatives need to be careful about falling into the trap of mirroring their opponents. Would Keith Olbermann be any less objectionable if he were promoting conservative causes and attacking liberals? Ann Coulter is an example of a “conservative” who uses the same techniques as her leftist opponents in making her presentations. Since the 90’s, she has gone from being at least a somewhat serious political commentator to little more than a useful strawman(clown) for the left. Ann Coulter has made money off of the gullible with her routine, whether on the speaking circuit or through her books. However, in the process, she has turned off people who might otherwise be receptive to conservative messages in the process. Such conservatives repel anyone other than the faithful, and provide juicy quotes and talking points for their opponents needlessly.

    Worry01 on February 4, 2010 at 3:05 pm

CNN is doing reports on the “tea parties”. Ali Velshi is showing the most repugnant stuff…(I’d stay away from it…too extreme, too unpredictable…too angry.)

JS: With anti-Semitic nutjobs like Emily Zanotti involved, he doesn’t have to look too hard. DS

J.S. on February 4, 2010 at 2:46 pm

Sad to see Michelle Malkin in that line up. After seeing what she also puts up with from the left I would expect much better from her. I would be curious on how she is not opening her eyes as to who/what this Emily Zanotti really is.

T: Michelle Malkin knows and doesn’t care. She’s a complete fraud, who repeatedly promoted anti-Semitic columns on her site as “buzzworthy.” She is part of the problem, not the solution, and a complete hypocrite. She whines about what the left says about her, then constantly hangs with people like this. DS

Terry on February 4, 2010 at 3:39 pm

    DS is correct. Malkin is a fraud.

    lexi on May 9, 2012 at 1:52 pm

Zanotti sounds like a crank. But what does this have to do with Sarah Palin? Why do you even mention her in this article? Thoms More Society has done some good work but they should get rid of this fool. I am enjoying watching Rahm twist and turn. I could imagine what would happen to a member of the GOP if they used the “r” word.

J: She campaigned for Palin and continues to be involved with supporting Palin. Thomas More Law Center does ZERO good work. It’s a sham. All they do is lose cases and pretend they’ll file cases so they can raised money. They proudly employed this anti-Semitic Islamo-panderer. Nothing happened to her when she called me a “special needs kid” and praised Muslim death, rape, and torture threats on my life. That’s the point. DS

Julian on February 4, 2010 at 3:50 pm

Did I miss a meeting? When did “conservatives” start sniping at one another? I thought we were all united in our disdain of diversity and entitlements! What the hell is happening to our solidarity???

GS: When “conservatives” started embracing a completely insane stalker and anti-Semitic loon named Emily Zanotti. DS

Graty Slapchop on February 4, 2010 at 4:13 pm

    “When did “conservatives” start sniping at one another?”

    Agreed that one must suppress other disagreements to go after the prize. But what is the prize? Is it more Islamic penetration in America? More anti-Semitism? More terror acts? More illegal immigration (also bringing in terrorists, a.k.a. Muslims)?

    What are the core ideals that we must require “conservatives” to have if the issues above are not among them?

    skzion on February 4, 2010 at 5:25 pm

    If you take such an uncritical view of people who refer to themselves as conservatives, how can you seriously complain about Barack Obama when he associates with people like Jeremiah Wright or Bill Ayers? It is not a matter of simply getting into petty fights, but expressing concern over beliefs and actions taken that are off the wall. People will pick up on such blind spots or bad faith very quickly. Why defend horrible or crazy comments from people who are conservatives, just because they are conservatives? Leave that sort of blind worship to the left, as seen amongst the accolytes of Mao during the 60’s and 70’s.

    Worry01 on February 4, 2010 at 5:30 pm

Michael Savage has had numerous attacks against him for pushing the Conservative agenda and I notice that almost NO ONE on the Right comes to his defense either. Might it be because he is also Jewish ????

While anti-semitism has always been around, I find it strangely interesting that ever since Saudi MONEY has been secretly backing many Conservative groups that people hate Jews all of a sudden on the Right. Most people don’t know that a Saudi Prince owns a sizeable portion of Fox News. Of course this doesn’t affect their coverage of Jews and Israel–oh no.

Keep up the good fight and don’t let these bigots scare you or silence you. Smith and Wesson can be very good friends indeed to have. -)

Nick Fury on February 4, 2010 at 5:02 pm

I am surprised at Malkin, Ham and hearing about Thomas More Center. Haven’t they helped defend Michael Savage in some successful case(s) against CAIR??

I follow Melissa on twitter, but don’t interact with her much to really know her or judge her, but I guess you know better based on your photo and experiences.

It seems you need to school Palin on some of these facts, as she probably doesn’t follow blogs like she should and doesn’t have the inside scoop you have on the so called ‘conseratives’. Thanks again Debbie for pointing out the people to watch for.

F: If you continue to follow an enabler of anti-Semitism who is party to trying to silence my free speech and you don’t see what is wrong with that, you are part of the problem, have learned absolutely nothing from this site, and you really are no different than Obama in following Rev. Wright. Not sure why you are surprised that frauds behave fraudulently. Thomas More Law Center is a fraud which loses its cases and never files many of them, lying to people so it can raise money. No, they had nothing to do with helping Savage. They’ve never won a thing against Islam, and what do you expect when they openly embrace an anti-Semite? WAKE. THE. HECK UP.

Not my job to “school” Palin. She’s a total dummy and a fraud. If she can’t do her homework and actually know world events and basic facts at age 46, she should be dumped, not “schooled.” Again, WAKE. UP. Stop making excuses for these people. It’s disgusting. DS

freedom4usa on February 4, 2010 at 5:25 pm

jimmyPx, I don’t know if it’s the Jewish angle. I only saw Savage once–on TV. Never listened to his radio show. On that viewing, as I recall, he hoped that gay people would get AIDS and die. That was when he was being nice. Prudent Jews, conservative though they might be, could get a bit unnerved at that sort of thing. Me, I always wonder what any kind of movement that would feature Savage would do to the Jews when they got through with other groups.

But the Saudi money has been corrupting universities for decades. It has also been corrupting our foreign service and politicians. No doubt, programming for Jew-hatred has been facilitated by this.

skzion on February 4, 2010 at 5:32 pm

Ed Morrissey doubled the IQ over at Hot Air when he joined. What could these “witnesses” possibly say against you?

I: If Ed Morrissey, a complete ignoramus and moron, doubled the IQ at Hot Air, he must have doubled it from zero. They have nothing they could say against me. The point is that they are trying to silence my free speech and agreed to participate in this nutjob’s grievance in the first place. DS

llano on February 4, 2010 at 6:31 pm

Debbie,
I come to your website because you have information that is not well known or available at other news sites. You tend to think that what you know is common knowledge and your readers should not “doubt you”. I do not doubt for one minute what you have said about Emily Zenotti and Thomas More Law Center but before today I had never heard of either of them. If I was at a conservative meeting and we were all sitting at the same table enjoying conversation about lower taxes and less government control, how would I know that this person was an anti-semite? And that certainly isn’t something I would believe about a person without proof. That said, out that hag and all her associates. Give them the proof of who and what she is and then call them out for guilt by association. It can be as simple as a letter they did not respond to. Do you think Michelle Malkin has security people that check everyone who wants a photo with her? You say Michelle is a fraud and you assume we should all know that. How would we know?

S: Malkin is well aware of this and . . . she doesn’t care. That’s just one of many reasons she is a fraud. She and all of these people I named saw the proof and didn’t care. They defended her and hung out with her and are willing parties to her BS grievance against me designed to silence my free speech b/c I exposed her to them in the first place and to others. It’s well beyond what you are suggesting. They know. DS

Sarah on February 4, 2010 at 6:49 pm

I think the problem here is, when a Democrat says something stupid, they get to apologize (once) and that’s that.

When a Republican says something stupid, the oh so tolerant Left wants the person’s head and they work on destroying his or her career. Unfortunately, this is how politics is done.

Obama can say stupid and degrading things about retarded people and get away with it. All he has to do is say, “Let me be clear, it was not directed at them.” And the spin-meisters perform damage control.

John on February 4, 2010 at 6:49 pm

I wouldn’t worry about a bit of fluff like Emily Zanotti, Debbie. Not that you are…

The woman lacks any sort of empathy. Blind to the precariousness of the Jews down through the ages, and blind to perhaps the Holocaust itself, she actually suggests a known anti-Semitic Islamist has some “points.” I guess EM missed the fact that Islamists, with attitudes like that U of M, Muslim PAC worker… murdered almost 20 Catholic priests last year alone.

But, I doubt if facts trouble Emily at all. Her head is untroubled by the truth.

Emily rushes to save a cross on a hill from the ACLU, but sides with those who would murder alter Christus.

How many Jews murdered Catholic priests, or religious, in the past 100 years? None.

YOU ARE WAY OUT OF LINE, EMILY!

A more intelligent version of herself, including one with integrity, would apologize to you without excuse… for her thoughtless comments, and actions.

But she is more interested in being quippy, rather than righteous.

The Canadien on February 4, 2010 at 7:26 pm

There are a lot of careerist conservatives, and unfortunately, as this post indicates, they put opportunism, and a desire for a quick buck ahead of principles. Some of them have sickening principles.

The Tea Party movement shows the perils of what can happen when a popular movement does not have effective and cohesive leadership. A lot of mass sentiment, and much of it is healthy, but there has been a leadership vacuum, and it seems to be filling up with real opportunists, who are subtly but inexorably turning the Tea Party movement into a careerist vehicle for them.

This national co-opting of the Tea Parties seems to suggest that progress, to the extent that it is made, will have to take place on a local basis, where there are local leaders capable of waging principled battles. I do think this will happen in some locations, if only because there is so much mass sentiment now against the liberals. There will be other Browns, and in some cases, they will have better politics. Hopefully, although Brown won’t be the one, a good local leader will gain influence and be able to lead the conservative movement, or at least local portions of it, in a positive direction where it won’t have to be subservient to opportunists or anti-Semites like those described in this post.

Little Al on February 4, 2010 at 8:13 pm

Sad…I usually like Michelle’s stuff. Need to check out her blog on Israel issues. Anyhoo, you write a beautiful blog. Conservative, Pro-American, Zionist. Good on ya.

Occam's Tool on February 4, 2010 at 9:09 pm

Great point, Little Al. Yes, there are plenty of career conservatives, and few of them care about Islam (otherwise, Debbie would not be able to point out such perfidy).

I like Debbie’s approach of focusing “like a laser” on a relatively few key issues and then digging and exposing, and being merciless when appropriate.

The Tea Parties really should not be too nationalized. We need to have access to them, and that is tough with a hierarchy, especially a “professional” hierarchy.

skzion on February 4, 2010 at 9:11 pm

BTW, at the risk of ruffling some feathers, I sometimes use a “did X support the Gaza expulsion/disengagement” litmus test. Virtually no well known “conservative” passes. Krauthammer? No. Pipes? No. Anyone who things we in the US are advantaged by Islam having increasing control in Eretz Israel is either (1) ignorant/stupid or (2) bought.

skzion on February 4, 2010 at 9:14 pm

I am an American First Conservative and a proud anti-semite,. Your tribe should stay on the left and stop hyjacking the conservavtive movement with its multi-cultrualism open borders zionist bs. thanks a lot Buckley for letting these parasite into the movement.

Right Wing Republican on February 4, 2010 at 9:49 pm

Too me it sounds like some people care more about their careers and their egos than the job at hand. For argument’s sake if everyone is working for the same goal then everyone should put their egos aside. It is about the money, fame or notoriety? Too me all this fighting seems rather sophomoric. I know people want to be #1 and sometimes people will step over each other to get what they want. Hey I wanted to do that a few years back. It aint worth it. My motto now is I want to be #2. No stress, no drama and your work is that work not your life. I still see people trying to brown nose and get leverage on others. This Zanotti and the rest would do this type of stuff no matter what line of work they are in.

CaliforniaScreaming on February 4, 2010 at 10:29 pm

I have never been a fan of political correctness, and have always considered it the left’s way of monitoring speech. I am struck by how absolutely out of touch DC is with the rest of the country. We were talking about this at work today and thought what would happen to any boss or employee in the workplace that called fellow employees F—ing retards at a meeting. I wonder if Washington has to take the same bs sensitivity tests and workshops the rest of us our required to take.

sharon on February 4, 2010 at 10:37 pm

Yeah, I am sure they chuckle about that at Stormfront.

sorrow01 on February 4, 2010 at 11:15 pm

Right Wing Republican’s comments are virtually the only comments taking issue with the substance of what she wrote although the misspelling makes it difficult to understand them.

Are creeps like this the only defenders that Malkin, Zanotti et al have? Probably, as it would be difficult to make an articulate or sensible argument defending them of their actions. Kind of like Pamela Geller few weeks ago; her defenders crossed the line into la-la land too, for the most part. No one with any sense can defend their positions; they thrive by evasion and trying to suppress their opponents; hard to argue coherently for their positions when they are frontally attacked, as was done by Debbie.

BTW, neoconservatives were around for 15 years, and in a few cases 35 years (Irving Kristol’s 1952 defense of Joe McCarthy) before the Buckley-Sobran arguments in the 80s. Also, not for RRW’s benefit, but for the benefit of other readers of this column, a number of the original members of National Review’s editorial board, and prominent supporters were Jewish, such as Frank Meyer.

Buckley didn’t ‘let’ anyone into the conservative movement; the neoconservatives became an independent voice supporting Reagan, attacking Communism, supporting the defense of this country, etc., and of course Sarah Palin, too, is for open borders.

But RRW is probably still mad over Debbie’s attack yesterday of lunatic Rand Paul and his bizarre father Ron.

Little Al on February 4, 2010 at 11:27 pm

Debbie, let Zanotti bring it on!

I hope she gets her day in court and you rip her to shreds.

Thanks for keeping track of people everyone else is giving a free pass to.

of Christians in old Russia!
Yes I will be banned for telling the truth!
I will tell my hero his name is Michael Savage!

So when the aclu & adl & islamist sickos come
for him & they did, I stand with him!

Some call Savage a Jew I call him a American
Patriot!
We will never agree on all things yet we will agree
on one we are Americans and to hell whom doubt US!

Lillywest on February 5, 2010 at 12:53 am

    Lillywest,

    I really like Michael Savage but I am not “calling” him a Jew, rather he is Jewish. Like many of us, his faith is a personal thing and he doesn’t openly discuss it that much.

    I have nothing but respect for the Jewish faith and while Dr. Savage doesn’t go into his faith that much, notice that he always talks about going to a Dinners in September (Yom Kippor & Rosh Hashanna). He also got furious at Barney Frank talking about the Days of Awe.

    jimmyPx on February 5, 2010 at 11:07 am

RE Bolsheviks allegedly killing Christians in Russia:

Far be it from me to defend the Bolsheviks, but in the interests of historical accuracy, the overwhelming majority of Bolsheviks were not Jewish in Russia, although a disproportionate number of Jews were Bolsheviks for the first few years after the 1917 revolution.

And by 1929, when Stalin assumed absolute power, very few Jews, either numerically or proportionately, were Bolsheviks. The mass murders employed by Stalin were, of course, after 1929 when the Jewish Bolsheviks, themselves, had started being purged (i.e. murdered) by Stalin. Thus, you had non-Jewish Bolsheviks killing Jews, a process that continued in the Soviet Union (sic) and Eastern Europe until Stalin’s death in 1953, although a recrudescence of anti-Semitism has occurred in Russia in recent years.

The famine of the early 30s and the attacks on the Kulaks in Ukraine and other places was, of course after 1929, when the Bolshevik Party was Judenrein except on a very symbolic basis.

After the 1917 revolution there was civil war for four years, and although some Christians were killed by some Bolsheviks, it was in the context, primarily of a civil war where people of all religions were killing people of all religions.

It is true that there were some acts of terrorism by the Bolsheviks before and after 1917, and, in fact, this terrorism is generally underplayed by historians, There was also terrorism by other Russian left-wing parties like the Social Revolutionaries, again underplayed by historians, and likewise terrorism by Menshevkis, again, primarily before 1917, and a minority of terrorists were jewish. Although most of this terrorism involved robbing banks, there were a few murders.

The magnitude of Jewish murders of Christians in this context was probably about 1/10,000 or 1/100,000 of the murders of Jews by Christians in Europe, even excluding the Holocaust. From the Crusades all the way up to 20th century pogroms in Eastern Europe through the 1930s, there is no comparing the magnitude of Christian murders of Jews. It was massive, and continuing over centuries, although of course, again, most Christians did not murder Jews, especially in the latter part of the millennium.

The sites that talk about “Jewish Bolshevik” murder of Christians are wacko sites; their names make this clear, but one of the problems of the internet is that crank and reputable sites are displayed without regard to accuracy when Google searches are made.

Thus, even in the 20th century, Christians killed Jews in Eastern Europe and Russia far more than Jews killing Christians, even excluding the Holocaust from consideration — but of course it cannot be excluded from consideration.

Little Al on February 5, 2010 at 3:00 am

    Hey Little Al do you mind if I forward your comments to
    my self-hating Jew, Christian wanna be ex-husband?

    ex on March 1, 2010 at 10:45 pm

It should also be remembered that those Bolsheviks of jewish origin generally repudiated their religion; they renounced Judaism, and considered themselves athiests, and their activities were condemned by Jewish organzations, the non-Zionists as well as the Zionists. The counterposition of Zionism and Bolshevism in Russia and Eastern Europe is well known.

Little Al on February 5, 2010 at 3:10 am

Speaking to anti-semitism… As an Evangelical Christian (redundant) I note that the New Covenant scriptures admonish Christians to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and to bless the Jewish people. Romans 11 tells the Christian believer that the Jew represents the natural olive branches and that we were grafted in because of their unbelief. But “Boast not against the branches…. thou bearest not the root, but the root thee…. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not high-minded but fear: For if G_d spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee…. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for G_od is able to graft them in again”

There are many cultural Christians out there – “Conservatives” as it were, as there are Jews, and for some reason Roman Catholics (Gibson) in particular retain an historic and poisonous animus towards Jews that is totally contrary to scripture. That is why all Christians who know the mind of G_d must acknowledge Israel and the Jewish people as still the “apple of God’s eye”, and to honor and protect them accordingly, as you would an elder brother. Ignorance of scripture on the part of confessing Christians is no excuse.

JLin on February 5, 2010 at 10:05 am

Michelle Malkin a.k.a. Round ‘em up and put ‘em in camps…is the only one I’ve even heard of.

The Terrorist's Advocate on February 5, 2010 at 10:31 am

In addition to the fine work of Little Al above, I’d just point out that Jews like von Mises (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludwig_von_Mises) were crucial in the anti-socialism movement, not to mention such men as Friedman.

skzion on February 5, 2010 at 10:39 am

Saying that the Tea Party movement embraces anti-Semitism is a bit strong. It is more accurate to say that all political movements in this country have embraced anti-Semitism, and that they only superficially renounce it when it is to their political advantage to. In that respect, Jews and Zionism are no different from any other group or interest that has been courted and pushed away according to how the political winds are blowing. Go back 50 years, for instance, and the advocates of Jews and Israel were primarily on the left and their opponents were mainly on the right. Similarly, go back 100 years and some of the biggest race baiters were feminists and union leaders. So, the anti-Zionist and anti-Jewish elements of the Tea Party movement simply represent those that have always been present in society but haven’t been able to advance their views much because neither major political party will allow them to … the official line of both the GOP and the Democrats is to oppose anti-Semitism and support Israel. So if you are someone who believes that Jewish money moguls control the world, the Tea Party movement gives you an outlet that you aren’t going to find anywhere else.

Gerald on February 5, 2010 at 12:57 pm

F: If you continue to follow an enabler of anti-Semitism who is party to trying to silence my free speech and you don’t see what is wrong with that, you are part of the problem, have learned absolutely nothing from this site, and you really are no different than Obama in following Rev. Wright. Not sure why you are surprised that frauds behave fraudulently.

[Debbie,
I didn't say I believe them or side with Malkin,etc, just surprised to hear since so many follow them and believe what they say (of course the same could be said for others)...but I am aware there are frauds in every party and now I am more aware through your post that they are 'frauds'.]

Thomas More Law Center is a fraud which loses its cases and never files many of them, lying to people so it can raise money. No, they had nothing to do with helping Savage. They’ve never won a thing against Islam, and what do you expect when they openly embrace an anti-Semite? WAKE. THE. HECK UP.

[I know Savage talked about CAIR on his show and recall him saying TMLC helped him with his lawsuit against CAIR which was finally dismissed. I don't recall all the details but I do remember him mentioning something about Thomas More Law Center helping him in that case and that they were/are helping him in the 'Banned from Britain' case. Maybe someone else here can help confirm these facts?]

Not my job to “school” Palin. She’s a total dummy and a fraud. If she can’t do her homework and actually know world events and basic facts at age 46, she should be dumped, not “schooled.” Again, WAKE. UP. Stop making excuses for these people. It’s disgusting. DS

[I didn't mean it was your job to school Palin, I was just 'jokingly' suggesting you could. I know she can do her own research and I'm sure she does, but doubt she uses blogs such as yours,which she should.
I don't think it is fact that we all know what you know Debbie, that is one of the reasons we/I come to your blog to learn about issues,people, etc I don't know about. I'm not making excuses for anyone...not sure why you became defensive, but hope you will consider the fact that I and I'm sure others come here to learn from you, not get ridiculed.

Thanks Debbie for more “Inside Baseball”. I’m so disappointed to see Malkin and Ham standing alongside Zanotti. I would occasionally look at Malkin’s web site and read articles by MKH. You were spot on when you gave me advice about Vannity (Hannity) so I’m thinking that you’re also correct about this group. I’ve never heard of Zanotti but I’ll start looking more carefully, maybe even set up a google alert. But I need to ask, do you think either of them (Malkin or Ham) still have anything useful to add and would be worth still checking out? There is so much information available on the web and so many web sites and bloggers to read that I need to use my time as constructively and intelligently as possible. I’m not going to waste valuable time reading people who have nothing productive to add to my understand of the threat we are under.

Palins fifteen minutes of shame should be up by now. Unfortunatly shes on every cable news channel right now talking at the tea party convention. Shes getting paid one hundred thousand for the speech. So much for grass roots. Thank God I’ve found this website were criticism of palin is accepted. All the mainstream conservative sites are in love with her.

Just like Jimmy Carter’s lust in his heart….Rahm slips up and lets out his true feelings. (g)

No surprise to find nuts in every barrel. We are all imperfect. However I rather enjoy the discomfort of Rahm. I believe he is not “anti-Semetic” I think he is a MalcomX type jewhater and hope he suffers. Sorry, I’m just imperfect…
All the upclose looks we have had at islam recently have given me an increased respect for the typical Japanese soldier of WWII. Much has been written of their atrocities, but little of their honor. islam hides in civilian clothes behind women and in schools, slithering in as snakes do. No matter what is said about the Japanese, they fought, in uniformed service, like men, for what they believed. No one will ever say that about arabic islam.
The smartest thing our government could do would be to make it mandatory to torture, not waterboard, ALL captured combatants and only give them Bibles.

Yes, I have learned that this is reality – I am sad to say. There is anti-Semitism among SOME conservatives. I am finding out that there is no lack of Saudi (other Islamic/Islamophile) money on both left and right politics. Islam wants to be on both sides so that they are assured of having influence. Folks, their agenda is both anti-American and anti-Semitic. This makes any conservative taking such money or even getting buddy-buddy with anti-Americans – a fraud.

I have noticed that some so-called conservatives never addresses terror related issues even when it begs mentioning. Some expresses a “moral equivalence” theme regarding Israel and her neighbors. This is a sign that they have a prejudice against Jews, and also that they don’t care about the future and security of America.

My heroes are the many sweet, honorable, decent Christian folks who are truly patriotic and are as sickened by hatred of Jews and Israel as I am.

As usual thanks to Debbie for all she does (and endures).

Personally never liked Michelle Maglalang a.k.a Michelle Malkin. Daughter of a physician in the US under a Visa. Maglalang said “the custom of granting automatic citizenship at birth to children of tourists and temporary workers such as Hamdi, tourists, and to countless ‘anchor babies’ delivered by illegal aliens on American soil, undermines the integrity of citizenship-not to mention national security.”
In the politics of FOX News double standards, how many of her own relatives have been petitioned by her parent and have overstayed their US Visas? Uhmm, Maglalang parents should be questioned and for the sake of Maglalang’s own statement, she shouldn’t have been granted US Citizenship.
“Everyone has prejudice” sure she is “eternally grateful” to rationalize her antisemitism.
My suggestion to her; get the clear alternative.

Thank you for bringing this to mt attention.I am a conservative and I think that Malkin, Hamm and anyone else who does not condemn this ZAnnotti person should be exposed for frauds. I consider my faith more important than my politics and I may be a Evangelical Christian, but I bless and pray for the Jewish people. I want to apologize to you,Debbie,for that crazy lady who threatened you and the stunning immoral silence from people who know better. G-d Bless you and your family
