More on Bob Novak: Hardly Conservative; Plus, Bob Grant, the Idiot & Newsbusters Whitewash anti-Novak Stuff
As I remarked yesterday, it’s really disgusting–the hypocrisy of so many conservatives, whitewashing the late Robert Novak, completely ignoring his pro-HAMAS, pro-PLO, anti-Semitic rantings and ravings. The entire conservative blogosphere is rampant with it, and with that they’ve written an epitaph for their ability to ever again criticize a liberal who expresses those same anti-Semitic, pro-HAMAS ravings. Yes, they are hypocrites. And shameless.
Since they’re lying to you about Novak and whitewashing the complete picture, what else are they hiding from you on other issues and topics?
Conservatives Continue to Shill for a Jew-Hating HAMASnik
That includes Newsbusters.org, the outfit owned by Brent Bozell. His employee, Brent Baker, wrote a gushing piece on Novak, and when one of my readers posted a link to my piece on Novak’s HAMAS support and hatred of Israel, Baker erased it and kept erasing it when it was posted again by me, saying that because Novak died we should ignore all the negative things he may have done. Hmmm . . . will he do that when Jimmy Carter dies? Don’t bet on it. Newsbuster’s tagline is “Exposing Liberal Media Lies.” They need to amend that to add, “And Telling Conservative Ones.” “Newsbusters”? Hilarious. More like, Newsspinnersandobfuscators.
But as Sultan Knish points out in a great piece, Robert Novak wasn’t even a conservative. He was for illegal immigration and alien amnesty and compared those of us who were against these to apartheid supporters. And he was a promoter of Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam’s loony leader. And there’s so much more. The Sultan’s piece is a MUST READ. Unlike most conservatives, he actually did his homework on Novak. Also a Must Read, the only other prominent conservative with the guts to tell the truth on Novak, Diana West (who is not Jewish, I might add). She gets it!
And finally, there is the incompetent, boring, octogenarian failed New York radio host with nine lives, Bob Grant. The guy is “only” 80 but he sounds like 180. And he doesn’t do his homework. This morning, I made the mistake of agreeing to be on his schlocky online radio show. Unfortunately, next month, this incompetent old fool will yet again have a radio show on Sundays on WABC. (I guess they needed to shore up that prized 80-95 demographic of hip, hot-roddin’ seniors.) It’s the second time I’ve done his show (and the last), and it’s clear he’s got many screws loose, that Alzheimer’s or dementia long ago set in with this guy. He’s one of the worst radio hosts I’ve ever heard. No, THE worst.
Without bothering to read my column on Novak (or do the tiniest bit of show prep ‘cuz that would actually make the show a tad interesting), he asked me about Novak’s death. I said the guy was a HAMAS supporter, Israel-hater, and anti-Semite. Grant didn’t care and said, “But he was a giant.” BFD. Who cares if an anti-Semite is a “giant”? That makes it right? Jimmy Carter is a “giant” in some liberals’ minds. And he says the same stuff Novak said.
When I talked about all of this stuff, Bob Grant said he wasn’t aware of Novak’s support for HAMAS or anti-Israel sentiment and didn’t believe me. Well, dude, I can’t be responsible for the fact that you’re 80 years old, don’t bother to read or do show prep on your guests, and are completely clueless and not all there. Since he couldn’t respond to any of the things I was saying, he first called me, “cheap”–yeah, Bob, insult the messenger, when you don’t have a clue how to respond to facts; that’s what’s really cheap.
Then, he said he was “disappointed” in me. I told him I was disappointed in him that he was not only completely uninformed but that he excused support for HAMAS and Israel-hatred that he’d pounce on if a liberal said it. Since he couldn’t respond to that he just said he just wanted to move on and repeated that he was soooo “disappointed” in me. Wimp. I said, no, I think we need to address this, and he wouldn’t repeatedly calling me names. Then he said there’s no point in having me on (because, hey, why have facts and information?). So, I hung up.
Yes, this is the guy–I just learned by googling, something he doesn’t have a clue how to do–who called Black people “savages” on his WABC radio show (and didn’t get fired for it). I can only imagine what he says about Jews when no one’s listening. And I won’t be doing his show again . . . ever. Assuming he’s still alive.
Bill P., the one listener, who has time to waste to listen to this–as we say in Yiddish–alta kaker [a very uncomplimentary way of saying he's an old fool], Bob Grant, left this comment:
Thanks again Debbie for not budging an inch with Bob Grant this morning!
Took him to the woodshed!
Calls himself a pro yet was completely unprepared.

Subject: The Bob Grant UBA Thing: EXCELLENT
To: firstname.lastname@example.orgHello DebbieWay to go. Proud of you. You stunned Bob Grant!!Thanks!I was surprised by his lack of facts.Thanks Again, Debbie!!!
You and me both, Bill.
Not stunning, though, is the hypocrisy of the most prominent voices on the right–NRO, Michelle Malkin, Hot Air, Newsbusters, etc., who are really tolerant of Jew-hatred after all (despite their protestations to the contrary). The anti-Semite just has to be on “their side” of the aisle.
