Et Tu, Front Page Mag?: Site That Preaches Against Jihad Whitewashes Jihadi Comrade Robert Novak; More Right-Wing Whitewashing
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
This morning, rightfully outraged reader “I Am Me” sent me a link to the Front Page Mag lead article gushing over the late anti-Semite and HAMAS-nik Robert Novak. It is no less than thoroughly disgusting. Not to mention, revisionist history extraordinaire.
Normally, FPM–David Horowitz’s outfit–is right on the money in the fight against jihad and Islam’s attempted usurpation and elimination of our freedoms. But with this nauseating, lying article, by FPM Managing Editor Jacob Laksin (who calls this jihad-enabling liar, Novak. a “superb journalist”), they have given up all moral high-ground on this issue.
Never again can FPM be taken seriously when it criticizes the likes of Jimmy Carter, Cynthia McKinney, and sundry others (including Barack Obama) for reaching out to and praising HAMAS. Because FPM’s newly-anointed late hero, Robert Novak did the same, and they’ve chosen to look the other way because he’s “our anti-Semite, our pan-jihadist.”
FPM really ought to be ashamed of Jacob Laksin’s complete whitewash of Novak. It is no less than sickening. The article is simply an outrage. Once again, I must repeat that the Bob Novak death has been revealing and ever-illuminating. It’s shown that the right—and now, FPM—has tolerance for the same anti-Semitism, Israel-hatred, and support for HAMAS in its “own” that it—including FPM—constantly decries in the left.
Laksin says it’s unfair to lump Novak in the group of anti-Semites and Jew-haters, but gives no reason, other than claiming Novak “dismissed” extremists. He did? When? He was one. This BS somehow erases his life’s work of speaking on behalf of HAMAS, Hezbollah, and Arafat, and promoting them shamelessly? Pat Buchanan decries “extremists” all the time, too. That makes him no less a pan-Nazi who looks good in brown. Laksin, while mentioning Novak’s column just two days after 9/11–a column we cited here, yesterday, as did Sultan Knish–mostly ignores the column’s contents. Unlike what Laksin claims, Novak didn’t just blame America’s relationship with Israel for the 9/11 attacks, he implied that Israel was BEHIND the attacks (a sentiment he didn’t just imply on 9/11 on TV, but openly embraced). And, as we noted, Novak said—the first to do so in print—that 9/11 was “an inside job.” Yes, he is the father of 9/11 Trutherism, something Laksin chose to ignore.
Tell FPM’s editors to ask themselves–with everything they decry on the left in Jew-hatred and Israel-hatred–how on earth they can run such a lamentation over Novak with a straight face. Will they do the same when Pat Buchanan dies? Why not? He’s basically Robert Novak’s twin.
The next time you read FPM and they attack those on the left for embracing jihadists and their enablers, point this out to FPM:
But you embraced HAMAS and Hezbollah spokesman Robert Novak.
Sadly, hypocrisy knows no ideological bounds. Nor does Jew-hatred and its enablers and whitewashers.
Despite what they say, the left has no monopoly on this.
**** UPDATE: Looks like there’s more whitewashing of Novak’s pan-jihadism on the right. I just got this e-mail from reader Gwen:
FYI everytime I post something on Townhall or American Spectator about Novak’s anti-Semitism it gets deleted. My posts are polite and I just state facts. Very strange.
Actually, there’s, sadly, nothing strange about it. When it comes down to it, the right has displayed that it is just as orthodox in its intolerance for the truth as the left is. And just as hypocritical.
Like I said, Bob Novak’s passing has been VERY enlightening.
