Anti-Semitic FOX News/PAWNN Commentator Tried to Flee Hit & Run of Homeless Man; HAMAS’ Novak Almost Hit Me, Too
By Debbie Schlussel
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR NEW FUNNY VIDEO ****
And to think that I complained that the movie, “Stuck,” portrayed the Black woman who did a hit-and-run of a homeless man as a White woman. Now, life imitates art, and we have a real-life White woman–Robert Novak–hitting a homeless man and trying to flee the accident scene.
Pro-HAMAS, Pan-Islamist, faux-conservative Robert Novak hit an 86-year-old man with his car and tried to drive away. AGAIN. And Novak lied about it. He claimed that he didn’t even know he hit anyone and feels so bad, BS, etc. But a man riding his bike near the scene says that the man Novak hit ended up on his windshield and that Novak was trying to get away. The man chased Novak (who was driving a Corvette convertible) down on his bike and repeatedly urged him to return to the scene of the crime.
Hmmm . . . fleeing an accident and not facing responsibility. Novak might have killed the victim, but didn’t care and fled anyway. That’s conservative, right? Law and Order, Shmlaw and Shmorder. When you’re Bob Novak, the end always justifies the means, just like with his HAMAS heroes:
“I didn’t know I hit him. I feel terrible,” a shaken Novak told reporters from Politico and WJLA as he was returning to his car. “He’s not dead, that’s the main thing.” Novak said he was a block away from 18th and K streets Northwest, where the accident occurred, when a bicyclist stopped him and said, “You hit someone.” He said he was cited for failing to yield the right of way.
The bicyclist was David Bono, a partner at Harkins Cunningham, who was on his usual bike commute to work at 1700 K St. N.W. when he witnessed the accident.
As he traveled east on K Street, crossing 18th, Bono said a “black Corvette convertible with top closed plowed into the guy. The guy is sort of splayed onto the windshield.”
Bono said that the pedestrian, who was crossing the street on a “Walk” signal and was in the crosswalk, rolled off the windshield and that Novak then made a right into the service lane of K Street. “The car is speeding away. What’s going through my mind is, you just can’t hit a pedestrian and drive away,” Bono said.
He said he chased Novak half a block down K Street, finally caught up with him and then put his bike in front of the car to block it and called 911. Traffic immediately backed up, horns blared and commuters finally went into reverse to allow Novak to pull over.
Bono said that throughout, Novak “keeps trying to get away. He keeps trying to go.” . . .
Finally, Bono said, Novak put his head out the window of his car and motioned him over. Bono said he told him that you can’t hit a pedestrian and just drive away. He quoted Novak as responding: “I didn’t see him there.”
A concierge at 1700 K Street said that she saw a bicyclist yelling and walked outside to see what the commotion was about.
“This guy hit somebody and he won’t stop so I’m going to stay here until the police come,” Aleta Petty quoted Bono as saying, as he stood in K Street, blocking traffic. . . .
In 2001, he cursed at a pedestrian on the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and 13th streets Northwest for allegedly jaywalking.
“‘Learn to read the signs, [bodily orifice]!’ Novak snapped before speeding away,” according to an item in The Washington Post’s Reliable Source column.
Novak explained to the paper: “He was crossing on the red light. I really hate jaywalkers. I despise them. Since I don’t run the country, all I can do is yell at ’em. The other option is to run ’em over, but as a compassionate conservative, I would never do that.”
Two years later, the same column reported that Novak had gone to a racing school in Florida.
“I’ve wanted to be a racecar driver all my life, and anyone who has watched me drive can tell you that,” Novak said.
The man Novak hit is an 86-year-old homeless former Broadway Director who remains in the hospital with injuries. I hope the guy sues the HAMAS-green pants off of Novak.
And this isn’t the first time for Novak. He was sued in 2004 for the same thing.
And he almost hit me, too. When I was an intern in Washington in the late ’80s, Novak nearly ran me over, as he drove through a red light while I had the green light and was in the middle of crossing a street in Georgetown. At that time, he was driving a convertible Mercedes Benz. He didn’t apologize or care. The guy’s a scumbag.
I make no pretense of liking Novak, the self-hating, anti-Semitic former Jew (he converted to Catholicism, but Islam would have been mor apropos), who said on CNN that he supports HAMAS. That was before PAWNN–the Prince Al-Waleed News Network–a/k/a FOX News hired Novak, after CNN dumped the stale Jew-hater/Muslim-Lewinskyizer.
Also before PAWNN hired him and also when I was an intern in Washington, Novak spoke at a National Journalism Center event in which I was one of the participants. I asked him why, if he was such an anti-Communist, he would support the Communist-allied P.L.O. against Israel? I also asked him if he could cite a single other case in which he supported the Communists against non-Communists. Novak couldn’t answer the first question. As for the second, he claimed that he once supported a Turkish military junta that was Communist in nature. Sure, he did.
So, why did FOX News hire this 77-year-old has-been? Is it his views on Israel? He really doesn’t get many scoops, except the Valerie Plame thing, which he passed on for his liberal buddy, Richard Armitage. Oh, and his faux-scoop about McCain naming his Veep by this week’s end. Didn’t happen.
And why is FOX News keeping on its staff a man who would flee the scene of an accident he caused?
Well, that’s not a first for PAWNN a/k/a FOX News, either. In 2000, when Florida was having all its recount court cases, Shepard Smith purposely hit a woman’s legs with his car, so he could get a parking space she was trying to save.
Moral of the story: Don’t get anywhere within striking range of PAWNN a/k/a FOX News’ criminal drivers. They don’t stop for you, unless–in Bob Novak’s case–you’re HAMAS or Hezbollah. Or Prince Al-Waleed.
Bob Novak . . . Whatta Schmuck.
Watch the video of this lying scumbag:
**** UPDATE: As you know, I’m not a fan of the obnoxious Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz a/k/a “Jon Stewart,” but Barry Popik sent this video, and he’s right on the money here:
