HOprah Watch: I Called It on Anti-US, Anti-Israel Hiker

By Debbie Schlussel

Call me NostraDebbie (or NostraDebmus).

When anti-American, anti-Israel, pan-Muslim “hiker” and activist Sarah Shourd was released from Iran, last week, in exchange for $500,000 “bail” (it was really ransom), I asked several questions.  Among them was:

How long until Shourd starts spouting her anti-American, anti-Israel, pan-Islamic garbage in books, on Oprah and other TV interviews, etc?

My answer was:

3-2-1 . . .

Well, it didn’t take long, and I called it. Tomorrow (Thursday), Shourd will appear on HRHSBotU [Her Royal Highness Supreme Being of the Universe] Oprah’s daytime talk fest. Now, to my other question, which I wonder if we’ll ever see answered honestly:

Who put up the $500,000 bail money to get Shourd out of Iran? Was it George Soros or one of his shell companies or organizations?

Don’t look for insipid, far-left HOprah to ask her that or any other deep and important questions, like why she was living in the midst of human rights-abusing, terrorist-sheltering Syria and gushing over the brutal Assad family that rules it and also attacking Israel and America. Or like why she so hates the country that got her out of Iran.

She deserved to rot in Iran, or at least in Syria. But, as I predicted, instead she gets the royal treatment from HRHSBotU HOprah. Figures.

No surprise.

There’s a reason–several of them–I own the URL She does.

    Deb, you’re claiming victory on this one because she was on Oprah? Who couldn’t have made that call? I predict the sun will come up tomorrow. I didn’t watch the interview, but I didn’t see much “spouting her anti-American, anti-Israel, pan-Islamic garbage” on the transcript. Maybe I don’t have that trained ear like you do. The real story, the good interviews, will come out when the other two are not being held hostage and they can speak freely.

    How about a real question… Will the US negotiate with kidnappers? As much as I would like to see the Americans released, let’s hope not.

Well, she clearly went to Iran because of their cutting-edge position supporting and fighting for women’s rights, something that has clearly inspired Ms. Youssef as well.

I remember reading your assessment of this incident at the time it took place.

When I first heard the news of the abduction I also got the impression that she and her co-horts were up to no good. Reading your evaluation gave legs to my suspicion, and reading your update here nails it!

Thank you.

Now I have no doubt that all media will have nothing to say about this aspect of this woman’s actions and foul mouth, and that they will treat her as if she were the poor, put upon little saint and martyr, kinda’ like they treated Tiller the Baby Killer as if he were a poor, compassionate Mohandas Gandhi, or some form of compassionate famous person.

I am tired of the bias in media and the omissions of such pertinent, important information as the true nature of this beast.

Oprah has her head up Obama’s A@@

This is the perfect companion piece to what I’m doing at present: watching Larry King lick Ajad’s balls on CNN.

“Call me NostraDebbie (or NostraDebmus).”
As long as you’re not Nostra Dhimmi lol

Not Ovenready on September 22, 2010 at 9:12 pm

Yep. And what marvelous timing, eh? CNN’s Larry King allowing that Thing (aka Prez of Iran) to spew his toxic filth. Thankfully, there’s a hockey game on.

J.S. on September 22, 2010 at 9:35 pm

Maybe okra will take her to Australia with her and leave her there.

ender on September 22, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    We like Australia. They’re the closest thing to an ally that we have left. Why would we want to inflict Ms. Shourd on them?

    Leslie on September 23, 2010 at 9:17 am

Yeah, that piece of latrine slime should have been left to rot in Iran. I have NO SYMPATHY for such a fraud unless she comes clean on Oprah (I call her “Dirty Bitch” Winfrey because of the way she showcased the women torn apart by the chimp…a TRUE caring person would NEVER lift off a veil off of a person who suffered so.) and says she was WRONG, loves America and then comes out as a Conservative.

If the POS has NOT learned after over a year in Iran, well, she is the ULTIMATE mental-case and has not an ounce of integrity and lives fueled on lies.

The fact that peeps are still fooled by DB Winfrey just floors me. I have been on to her fakeness for decades, but what really sealed the deal for me is when DBW went to the Super-Dome after Katrina and the look of contempt on her face (all the while faking to care) just said it all.

Then again, we are in the sad decline of a country that voted Cap’n Zero into office.

Skunky on September 22, 2010 at 10:35 pm

I may sound a little paranoid, but I think that this whole Iran incident was just a ploy to throw off some CIA/MI6/Mossad agents who might suspect Ms Shourd of being… AN IRANIAN SPY!

Imagine… the ultimate taqqiyah: you have an agent that’s doing such a great job in your enemy’s country that’s in danger of being “made” by their security forces. Your sleeper cells are getting antsy and you have to do something to ensure that your agent continues to keep up the good work at any cost. She has all this vital intel from her travels and encounters. What better way to get your briefing, do a debrief, then redeploy your star agent than to arrest and charge same. Make a big newsfest over it, create disinformation regarding “ill treatment” of said “hostage”, negotiate a “ransom”, then release your agent for the next big mission!

It doesn’t hurt if your star agent is cute. It has been done before. It will be done again.

Soviet Russia should’ve known this. They’ll learn.

The "Reverend" Jacques on September 23, 2010 at 12:08 am

Okay… I am no supporter of radical-islam, however…

…please, let us try to remember — at least for the moment, and continue to remember this:

–> this persons friends are still being held “hostage”.

Let her say what she feels she must right now.

I imagine that she is in shock; Stockholm Syndrome-esque.

[And yes… we should all be pi$$ed that they did this to her.]

Although I haven’t been following this story very closely I would like to say that the very idea of someone just “out for a hike” along the Iran/Iraq border during a war in countries filled with terrorists is up to more then just sightseeing. Either that or Shourd and her companions are dumb as a box of hammers.

JakAtak on September 23, 2010 at 5:25 am

This whole episode smelt bad from the beginning. Three innoc ent “hikers” wandered into Iran unintentionally. And this story was accepted by the brain dead lamestream media? An eight year old kid would have realized that there was something fishy about the whole story. Now the Left has another heroine to celebrate.

Jerry on September 23, 2010 at 8:12 am

Those three were just stupid. Shane Bauer and Shourd both speak arabic (Bauer is fluent) and because they have written unflattering things about Israel and the US, they thought they could walk around Iraq and Iran freely. The third guy was just stupid enough to believe that these two somehow fit in like natives, and he would be safe with them. I’ll bet when they ran into the Iranians, they thought they could talk their way out of it. But imagine how surprised they were when instead of the Iranians seeing three enlightened westerners who hate Israel, they just saw three Americans. And to the Iranians if an American speaks fluent arabic then he must be a spy. So Sara and Shane thought they could identify with the arabs, but found out that maybe the arabs don’t need them afterall. It’s something like trying to curl up and make friends with a rattlesnake, a bear or a chimp. Eventually you are going to bitten.

It’s not just HOprah who won’t ask the kind of probing questions Debbie put forth (i.e. whether Soros or any of his fronts put up the money to free Sarah “Shroud”), it’s the entire “lame-stream” media (a moniker very well deserved, many times over).

ConcernedPatriot on September 23, 2010 at 11:47 am

Apparently, Oprah was actually christened Orpah, but nobody in the family could pronounce that so they changed it to Harpo written backwards

Preposteroso on September 23, 2010 at 1:13 pm

period . . .

Preposteroso on September 23, 2010 at 1:15 pm

Debbie, I remember about a week ago, you wrote an article about this anti-american, anti-israel, anti-semetic, pan-islamic thing Mrs. Shourd going onto HOprah’s TV show, an it turned out that you where right Debbie, she’s going onto Winfrey’s show as you claimed.

And your aslo right Debbie, HOprah isn’t going to ask her tough questions like, “why was she living in a ass-backwards country like Syria that promotes islamic terrorism, etc.”, and “Who exactly was it that released her, was it George Soros who released you Mrs. Shourd? How did you get all of that money for you to be released from the Iranian government?” We all know that HOprah isn’t going to ask this lady anything like that, instead she’s going to kiss ground that Shourd walks on and give out gushy comments, etc.!

“A nation is identified by it’s borders, language & culture!”

Hilary called it “private money”, btw…

“SECRETARY CLINTON: Great relief. I was so, so pleased that this young woman was able to come home. I want the other two young Americans, Josh and Shane, to come home as well. But as a mother – I’ve met with their mothers – and I just can’t even imagine how painful the experience that they themselves have had inside prison, but then, of course, the pain that their families feel. So thankfully, she’ll be given a chance to be reunited with them.

QUESTION: Do you believe that half a million dollar bail was paid?

SECRETARY CLINTON: That was privately arranged.

QUESTION: Do you know anything about whether it was paid?

SECRETARY CLINTON: I know nothing about it. I just know that whatever the arrangements were, they were privately arranged.”

Yisrael Medad on September 23, 2010 at 2:13 pm

Hoprah should take her entire dumbass sheep-like followers to see the Iranian prison that Shourd was kept in. It’s just wishful thinking, but I wouldn’t mind it if Hoprah and her worshippers stayed for a while to see sharia law in action. Plus, there are two very good things that would happen if they stayed in Iran. No more Hoprah means one less hack for BHO on TV, and we would raise the average IQ of the American people significantly.

Um, you can be pissed all you want. I don’t particularly care.

fred on September 23, 2010 at 11:43 am:

Iranians aren’t arabs. They don’t speak arabic.

For the record, I think that when you go messing around in a hostile country (North Korea comes to mind) and get put in jail, you get what you asked for.

KerryB on September 23, 2010 at 5:07 pm

This Woman and other 2 men that are still being held are members of the ISM, which assists the West Bank in hiding weapons and other materials to wage assault on Israel. It is the same group that Rachel Corrie was a member of.

Marc C on September 24, 2010 at 1:12 am

HOprah paid, I believe. I imagine the sister to the asian Bill Clinton got out of North Korea might have suggested the path for this story.

FeFe on September 24, 2010 at 8:33 am

Wow, Deb & you anti-Oprah eejits are pathetic! I watched the interview, never once did the BRAVE AMERICAN Shourd say anything anti-American, anti-Israel, or pro-Islam. I feel sorry for Deb as she is delussional and yet another Republican turned fascist, and is out to do whatever she can do to turn this country over to corporate America, and ruin true democracy! What a lying zona!

Love the artwork Debbie! Right on!

Miss Truth on September 24, 2010 at 7:35 pm

I feel kind of sorry for Oprah because one day she will have to bow to all these Muslim Males, put on a full black burqua, wash their feet, serve tea, and be stripped of her Queendom status, only then she will be jolted out of her deception, but sadly it will be to late.

Miss Truth on September 24, 2010 at 7:40 pm

Shroud’s really a chick? I thought that was Stephen Colbert in drag.
