Bush Daughter Joins the PC Crowd; Compares Herself to Anne Frank (As If)

By Debbie Schlussel
Congratulations, Jenna Bush. You, too, have joined the PC crowd. Wow, your parents really taught you well.
Presidential twin daughter Jenna Bush is publishing a new book she wants your young kids to read, and–surprise!–its heroine is a teen single mother with AIDS. So much for your kids having a childhood.
The partying, drinking Bush twin thinks your kids need to “put a face on statistics” of AIDS in Latin America. And take action. Gee someone’s been listening to too much Bono hypocrisy. And forgot about America.
And Bush has the audacity to tell USA Today that she envisions her teen-single-mother-with-AIDS book as having the same influence as Anne Frank’s The Diary of Anne Frank. She compares her book and its topic to two books on the Holocaust, including Frank’s. She even named her single-teen-mother-with-AIDS heroine Ana, a Latino version of Anne.

Jenna Bush:

The “New Anne Frank” Changes Underwear in Public, in Drunken State

Memo to Jenna: Get a clue. Anne Frank and most of her family were rounded up and murdered–NOT because they slept around as teenagers and had unprotected sex, but because they were born Jews. Period. To compare Frank’s murder in a concentration camp to a teenager who has sex, gets pregnant, and gets AIDS is a little absurd. As evidenced by her diary, her teen years were spent in a cramped attic hiding from Nazis. Sorry, Jenna Airhead, the AIDS and poverty in Latin America is hardly the same as the Holocaust, which was mass genocide.
Bush got the idea for this silly book from her time on a UNICEF internship. Proving again that no participant in UN programs goes uninfected.
Yep, another Presidential daughter bites the dust. I used to think she was unfairly criticized by the media, but now they’re predictably gushing over her–she’s taken up their causes in spades.
Jenna, we liked you better when you were the Paris Hilton of the Bush White House.
More on this exercise in the ludicrous from USA Today:

Jenna Bush, in a rare interview, says her forthcoming book for teens – about a 17-year-old single mother in Panama who is living with HIV – will end with a “call to action.”
HarperCollins announces today that it’s publishing Bush’s “Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope” this fall. . . .
The president’s daughter, 25, says the book is not political. It’s aimed at “getting kids thinking and involved,” Bush said Monday by phone from Panama, where she has worked since September as an unpaid intern for UNICEF.
Bush, a former public school teacher in Washington, D.C., says: “I’m aware that not all kids can pick up and fly to Panama. I’m very lucky.”
But, Bush says, “there’s so much they can do” to deal with issues of “exclusion” – from research on HIV discrimination to “inviting new kids to sit with them in the cafeteria.”
The book grew out of her UNICEF job to “put a face on statistics” and document the lives of children in Central and South America who live in extreme poverty.
Jenna and her sister, Barbara (who works at a New York museum), have tried to avoid publicity and have been protected by the White House. But, she says, “I’m willing to give up some of my anonymity” to promote the book and “start a dialogue with kids.”
A book tour is planned in schools, libraries and bookstores. “This is not about me,” she adds, “but the kids I met here.”

PUH-LEEZE. It’s all about her.

Kate Jackson, editor of HarperCollins Children’s Books, says she was impressed by Bush’s “intellect, drive and passion.” A first printing of about 500,000 copies is expected.

Yes, teen single mother’s with AIDS as the new Holocaust. That’s real intellect.

Bush says she will donate her earnings to UNICEF. She says she “very, very modestly” hopes her book will have some of the influence of two books about girls caught up in the Holocaust: Lois Lowry’s novel Number the Stars and Anne Frank’s The Diary of Anne Frank.

And to think I used to defend this chick. Never thought I’d long for then-estranged Reagan Daughter Patti Davis’ “Homefront.”

Just when you thought things with the Bush family could not get any worse…

Red Ryder on March 6, 2007 at 12:30 pm

Goodness….even the president’s daughter…
After reading all that, I rushed to the bathroom and puked. That’s how sickening it is. Yet another piece of female waste that the media will force on little girls as some sort of a role model.

Squirrel3D on March 6, 2007 at 1:23 pm

Dear Debbie;
Jenna Bush is nuts!
Poor Anne Frank, and her family were murdered by sadistic animals, just because they were Jews.
Even before they were taken to the death camp, their lives were a living hell. The suffering they endured was not because Anne got knocked-up by someone with HIV, who was to stupid to use a rubber.
This just goes to show you that a college education means nothing anymore. And dumb-asses come from all walks of life.
Sincerely;
EJO

Now let’s see—HOMOsexuals in San Francisco and NY come down with an unknown and incurable disease, and at the same time sub-Sahara HETEROsexuals get the same mystery illness, THE ONLY TWO THINGS LINKING THEM is an experimental hepatitis drug being tested by the Reagan government. TRYING to sytematically eradicate a whole race of people AND homosexuals at the same time sounds pretty holocaustic to me.
Damn, i’m starting to like these new Bushes:)

EminemsRevenge on March 6, 2007 at 5:36 pm

damn! seems like you just can’t win. The young lady wrote a BOOK!! it’s not her fault that the holocaust happened. There are billions of books in the world..why pick on her..so what she compared her self to Anne Frank..maybe she admires her!!, better she admire Frank that Hitler. Insted of being angry at Muslims maybe you should direct some of that venom at the Germans, they are the ones that kicked you out of your home in Germany and Europe and decimated your people. In fact had hitler not commited these crimes most of you would still be enjoying a fruitful existence in Germany living as bankers, craftsmen, artists, musicians, what ever..instead of living in a desert waste land surrounded by people who hate you. And if black people complained as much as you do about the past you would tell them to just get over it.

No doubt some ghostwriter will write Jenna’s book. People will gush over it. And she’ll probably be on C-Span someday, (pretending to be a writer and a great humanitarian).
Anne Frank, on the other hand, wrote essays and short stories even before she had to go into hiding. If the Frank family hadn’t been murdered by the Nazis, I think the world would still have been touched by Anne Frank, either by her writing and/or by her concern for others.
She was so courageous and humble! As was Miep. I read Anne Frank’s diary several times over as a child, and I didn’t know that Miep wrote a book.
See: Miep Gies, an unsung heroine
http://www.miepgies.dk/index.htm
Miep Gies is bewildered that anyone would make a fuss over what she did. In her book “Anne Frank Remembered” she told: “I am not a hero. I stand at the end of the long, long line of good Dutch people who did what I did or more‚Äîmuch more‚Äîduring those dark and terrible times years ago …”

FUTURE:
Your diatribe of HATE is not appreciated at all.
I won’t address your specific comments because there is no point. No pearls before swine.

CarpeDiem on March 6, 2007 at 10:23 pm

This is what happens when you go to an Ivy League school. Hmm, this has a strange correlation with that recent study about college students being more self-absorbed than ever. Jenna Bush just validated that study! Another person riding on their family coat tails. Can’t these people just go play tennis or something and leave the rest of normal society alone? I know she thinks she’s trying to “help” but really, do teenage girls need yet another example of teenage pregnancy?
If teenage girls are smart, they would be better off reading Anne Frank’s Diary or Pride and Prejudice or Rebecca. Anything but the literary crap that passes for books these days.
MINNIE MOUSE:
JENNA IS THE DUMBER OF THE TWINS AND THE BIGGER PARTIER AND DRUNKARD. SHE COULDN’T GET IN TO AN IVY LEAGUE SCHOOL AND INSTEAD WENT TO THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS. THAT’S NOT TO SAY THAT U-T IS NOT A GOOD SCHOOL, BUT IT’S MUCH EASIER TO GET INTO, ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE A NATIVE TEXAN AND THE DAUGHTER OF THE FORMER TEXAS GOV. THE OTHER TWIN, BARBARA BUSH, IS THE ONE WHO WENT TO YALE.

MENNYIBEN:
You make an excellent point. Miep is as humble as can be about what she did. And then you have Jenna Bush whose grandiose fantasies about her book are laughable. The only thing she has in common with Anne Frank is her gender.

I have never seen that underwear picture before and it is beyond belief. Totally sickening.

CarpeDiem on March 6, 2007 at 10:43 pm

I just assumed the Bush legacy got her into Yale, I mean if Lindsay Lohan can get in, their admissions are lax if you have the right connections. We see how that Ivy League education turned out for George W. (Not to offend people who actually earned their way in)Barbara IS apparantly the smarter one since she doesn’t change her underwear in public. The sad thing about that picture is that she had to have Secret Service members standing nearby. Sometimes they have a crummy job.

Minnie Mouse on March 6, 2007 at 10:45 pm

Minnie,
I disagree on George W. I don’t think he’s stupid, it bothers me when people say that so casually as if they know it’s true. Was Reagan stupid? No, but he got all of the same rap.
In addition to Yale, George W. also has a Harvard MBA. No one who can complete that program is stupid!

CarpeDiem on March 6, 2007 at 10:59 pm

Carpe Diem,
I don’t think George W. is stupid, he just doesn’t reflect his level of education. Granted public speaking for all the world to see has to be stressful, so I give him some slack for that. I was a kid when Reagan was President so I don’t remember that well or didn’t watch his speeches but he seemed to present himself as man who knew what he was talking about.
Strategery!

Minnie Mouse on March 7, 2007 at 6:59 am

Crape Diem , you are all over the place..no logic, no consistency. I don’t hate, in fact I love and respect Jewish people and there culture, as well as all decent people and cultures including Muslims..as I said before there are many brave Muslims who fight side by side with our service people all over the world fighting terrorist, many have lost there lives doing so and many have saved the lives of our service people. You all are the haters who try and lump all Muslims in a negative light..it’s not fair when bigots do it to Jews and it’s not fair when bigots do it to Muslims.
Jenna Bush is not stupid.. she’s a human being who’s not perfect, but seems to be improving her life. I’m not a big fan of W, but his children deserve to be treated with respect like you would want your kids to be treated. Jesus said “HE WHO IS WITH OUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE ”

future on March 7, 2007 at 8:23 am

To future:
One can have differing opinions regarding two distinct issues, which I’m sure is a revelation to you.
I can comment that I think Pres. Bush IS intelligent, even though he has butchered certain words at times. He’s also not a true conservative. Another opinion!
I can also say that Jenna’s idea that she is the new Anne Frank is laughable.
Obviously you don’t know what the word logic means. Look it up. Consistency is not necessary when commenting on two different subjects. BTW, I never said Jenna was stupid, that was another poster.
As far as you “loving and respecting the Jewish people”….LOL!
Here’s the love and respect you spewed at Debbie. “…instead of living in a desert waste land surrounded by people who hate you. And if Black people complained as much as you do about the past you would tell them to just get over it”.
In that drivel you managed to call the State of Israel *a desert waste land*. What can be said of a person with so little compassion? Since you quoted Jesus to me I’m sure he’d love what you called his birthplace.
Your black comment is hilarious, considering they own the rights to the victim culture. Muslims are irrelevant to this comment, I never mentioned them.

CarpeDiem on March 7, 2007 at 8:52 pm

My first question is: Why Panama?
I keep wondering about the whole AIDS business, which is the only disease I know that has a political constituency. People make noises about Africa, but the money could save far more lives if deployed more sensibly.
AIDS has been around a generation and people know how to avoid it if they choose. When it first hit, a friend of mine saw the light and altered his social life some. He later entered into a monogamous relationship with another charming young man. Other friends have done the same.
As to one of the earlier posters, it is not hatred to hold other people responsible for their doings. In fact, I think a lot of the whole AIDS thing is people commiting suicide by sex.
I hope the kid gets every benefit she deserves for her efforts, especially the unrelieved company of her new supporters.

The problem with Bush is not his intelligence. I believe he is highly intelligent but not verbally articulate. I’d rather have that than the glibness you see in Clinton. Bush’s problem is that he is not conservative. He believes in open borders. He doesn’t know how to fight a war and he didn’t clean out the filth at the State Dept., CIA and FBI when he had the opportunity.

lexi on March 8, 2007 at 9:57 am

Good call Debbie! I’m sure that it is just a coincidence too that with the current border situation and her pappy that her heroine is a Hispanic.

AlturaCt on March 9, 2007 at 4:31 pm

Anne Frank’s, may the al-mighty avenge her blood’s DIARY was published as The Diary of a Young Girl. The Diary of Anne Frank was the PLAY, which many people found offensive because it turned Anne, the eloquent particularist, into a trite universalist.

Miranda Rose Smith on September 1, 2009 at 2:19 am

“victim culture”?

CrapaDiem on January 19, 2010 at 11:13 am

nne Frank’s, may the al-mighty avenge her blood’s

Great post. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m impressed! Very useful info specifically the last part :) I care for such information a lot. I was seeking this certain info for a very long time. Thank you and best of luck.

Dusty on April 19, 2013 at 6:51 am
