Beto is no different than Kamala or Corey or any of the other potentials except for maybe, maybe, Bernie.
It’s time for progressive politicians to put Palestinian rights on the agenda, stop being bullied by AIPAC, and get with the program, or else they are going to lose the support of the constituents they need to get elected- if not today, then tomorrow.
Congress is a zionist puppet, they know it well, to learn who rules over you, simply look at who you are not allowed to criticize. Disappointing, Beto is already owned. Will not get my vote.
Maher has personally offered himself as an asset to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government. “I love Israel, but you know, if you f**k with them, they will blow the f**k out of you,” Maher declared. Gee, kinda like ISIS right Bill? You bloviating hypocrite. How much longer will we continue to tolerate Islamophobes like Maher, who have built their careers on naked bigotry? He legitimizes Islamophobia.
Maher is totally myopic when it comes to Islam. He is determined to demonize entire religion that is the fastest growing religion in the world. There was no Isis, El Shaba, Boko Harram before 9/11. He ignores jewish terrorism against the Palestinians, he invalidated IRA terrorism and he totally ignores domestic abuse in this country, the US, where men of all colors murder more men, woman and children everyday than ISIS ever could. He will brook no dissension or allow anyone to make their point. And when was the last time he had a Muslim on his show? Rula Jabreal went back at him and he went apoplectic and shut her down. The man is a racist bigot when it comes to Islam, embarrassing and shameful.
Bill's old show got yanked because he stuck up for insurgants fighting for their country. Now Bill knows what side his bread is buttered on and has to kowtow to his jewish bosses and be pro-israel. His insistent ignorance is embarrassing for him. For a guy up on current events and one who made a movie about religion it's beyond idiotic.
UGH. A flaming hypocrite and snake. Weiss has a long record of seeking to muzzle critics of Israel, going back to her campaigns against professors — several of them Arab — as an undergraduate at Columbia University in the early 2000’s. She also had a role in hounding out a Columbia dean for hosting former Iranian president Ahmadinejad.
As Glenn Greenwald pointed out in his excellent Intercept article
I saw her on Bill Maher talking about respect, and love for all, respect for human dignity, don't like bigots, freedom for all, blah, blah, blah, etc. However, again, she has a long record of seeking to muzzle critics of Israel, going back to her campaigns against professors — several of them Arab — as an undergraduate at Columbia University in the early 2000’s. She also had a role in hounding out a Columbia dean for hosting former Iranian president Ahmadinejad. Her father is a stalwart at AIPAC, the Israel lobby group who defines our middle east policy with our US Congress.
If we don't love the jews then we're anti-semites. But she is an anti-Palestinian and a Islamaphobe and a hypocrite. Videotapes recording illegal jewish settler squats throwing garbage on Hebron Palestinians does more to stereotype israel to the World than the claims of anti-Semites.
Zionism -- the idea that Jewish people ought to have a Jewish state in mandate Palestine -- is anachronistic in the 21st century. The idea that non-Jews who have lived on the land for generations before the creation of the state of Israel should be relegated to second-class citizenship because they're not Jewish is racist plain and simple.
