Sadly, far too many conservatives are drooling over an op-ed piece by new “national security expert” Angelina Jolie in the Washington Post. In it, she argues that we should stay in Iraq, but not because she gives a damn about America’s national security interests, the safety of our troops, or defeating Al-Qaeda and Mahdi Army (Jaish Al-Mahdi) terrorists.
Nope. She’s only worried about Islamic refugees. And she’s frequently used them as an issue over which to attack Israel. While she refrained from it in this piece, she gushed over Jordan and Syria, which is a bunch of crap. And she called for America to give more money to Iraqi refugees in Syria and Jordan. Um, why are they refugees? For a good number of them, it’s because they are Ba’athists and Palestinians who were protected by Saddam. It’s our responsibility to help those who helped our enemies?
Her praise of Syria and Jordan is not only disgusting, it’s absolute baloney:
Skankelina Jolie at anti-American, anti-Semitic, pro-HAMAS Arab Children’s Conference Hate-Fest in Jordan, 2004
Skanks for Terror: Angelina Jolie and Jordanian Queen Noor Exchange Wet Kiss at Arab Children’s Conference Hate-Fest, 2004
Syria and Jordan are carrying an unsustainable burden. They have been excellent hosts, but we can’t expect them to care for millions of poor Iraqis indefinitely and without assistance from the U.S. or others.
WHAT?! Syria and Jordan have treated these refugees like crap. They won’t let them work and they won‚Äôt give them any aid. Her claim about them is complete bull, but no surprise since, again, she often visits Syria and Jordan and praises them, while blaming Israel for their “Palestinian” refugees.
Big deal. So she thinks we have to pour more money than we already have into Iraqis’ “welfare” and pay off a terrorist host state in the process. Saying the U.S. has a national security interest in “ending this crisis” doesn’t mean she wants our soldiers to stay there for reasons of terrorism and national security (she never even mentions Al-Qaeda or the Mahdi Army). It actually sounds more like: “we should fund and watch over this refugee problem we caused.” This is standard Marla Ruzicka stuff. Like I said, in the past, Jolie has a record of blaming America and Israel for the world’s refugee problems. I don’t see her diverging from that position here.
And the reason she didn’t mention a thing about Al-Qaeda and Islamists, is because she’s a pan-Islamist. How do I know she likes them? I’ve followed Skankelina for several years, and she hates Israel, appeared at an international anti-Israel/anti-American hate-fest for Arab and Muslim kiddies, and sang along with Palestinian refugees on taking their revenge against Israel. She has never visited Israel (she calls it “Palestine”)–and frankly, who wants her there?–and has explicitly blamed Israel for refugee problems in Arab countries, including for Iraqi Palestinian refugees living in camps in Israel (who, again, fled after Saddam–their guardian–was deposed, NOT anything to do with Israel).
Here’s the real Angelina Jolie Voight, from my 2004 column on her:
Palestinians are between 70 and 90 percent of Jordan’s population, but are ruled by Hashemites, like King Abdullah. Instead of recognizing this, Jolie called Palestinian refugees in Jordan “displaced” from their country, thanked Jordan “for keeping its border open,” and commended the Jordanian government “for hosting the world’s largest group of Palestinian refugees . . . for more than 50 years.” . . .
A much-heralded December 2003 visitor to the Ruweished Palestinian refugee camp in Jordan, Jolie wrote diaries lamenting the treatment of Palestinians. While she doesn’t mention Israel by name or specifically endorse cold-blooded murder, you get the drift. She approvingly quotes the kids and a play they do about Jerusalem “about Arab children and how they live”:
“Palestine was sold by merchants. God knows we are injured and hurt. Be patient we will take our revenge we will take our homes back . . . . (Smiles, fists in the air) Palestine, your name is in our veins. . . .Their dream is to see their homeland. . . . It was very moving to hear them speak of the dream.”
Oh, and don’t forget when Jolie said she was “absolutely ashamed” of America. If Michelle Obama can’t say it, why can she?
And, apparently, everyone’s forgotten when she compared America’s secure border advocates to Hitler.
This woman is sick and whacked out. She cheers on kids singing about killing Jews. That she has a pretty face and happens to agree–for her selfish hate-America reasons–that we should remain in Iraq is no cause for cheer. It is cause to re-examine whether we should actually stay there.
I’m tired of conservatives gushing over every single celebrity who says an inkling of something 100 miles close to what they want to hear. They are so desperate for celebrities to validate their views that they drool a river.
Sometimes, far too frequently, desperation overrides all critical thinking. And that’s the case here.
Make no mistake. Angelina not-so-Jolie is anti-American. She’s said as much. She’s a supporter of Palestinian terrorism against Israel who cheered on calls for “revenge” against Jews to “take back Jerusalem.” She’s an apologist for Islamists, and Syria and Jordanian–both homes to uber-extremism and Islamic terrorism central. She is the woman who harassed ICE agents over their treatment of illegal aliens in detention and removal facilities and demanded they and their kids have tax-paid lawyers. She’s the one who blamed America for refugee problems all over the world and said we’re too tough on illegal aliens. And, while we spent billions on misspent Katrina relief, she said it wasn’t enough.
This is your new heroine, conservatives? You’re whacked. Why didn’t you like Angela Davis back in her day?
If you like Angelina Jolie, there’s no reason not to like Alec Baldwin and Sean Penn. In fact, in many ways, even they are far less offensive.
