“I’m not anti-Semitic! And did you notice how those damned Jews hounded me out of a job?”

The addle-pated gorgon would be almost funny if she weren’t so thoroughly disgusting:

MARION, Ohio – In a radio interview, former White House correspondent Helen Thomas acknowledges she touched a nerve with remarks about Israel that led to her retirement. But she says the comments were “exactly what I thought,” even though she realized soon afterward that it was the end of her job.

“I hit the third rail. You cannot criticize Israel in this country and survive,” Thomas told Ohio station WMRN-AM in a sometimes emotional 35-minute interview that aired Tuesday.

“They distorted my remarks, which they obviously have to do for their own propaganda purposes, otherwise people might wonder why they continue to take Palestinian land,” said Thomas, a daughter of Lebanese immigrants who over the years did little to hide her pro-Arab views. There was no explanation of whom “they” referred to.

And no explanation, either, of just how her remarks were “distorted” by “them.” Because, umm, y’know, they weren’t. But this terrorist-symp excrescence has been confusing “reporting” with “distorting” throughout her interminable career.

She issued an apology, she told the radio interviewer, because people were upset and she thought she had hurt people. “At the same time, I had the same feelings about Israel’s aggression and brutality,” Thomas said.

Asked whether she’s anti-Semitic, she responded “Baloney!” She said she wants to be remembered for “integrity and my honesty and my belief in good journalism” and would like to work again.

And she would certainly be remembered for all those things, if she’d ever once shown any evidence of possessing the merest shred of any of them.

  1. “You cannot criticize Israel in this country and survive….”

    Her statement wasn’t criticism of Israel, it was a call for the end of its existence. Slight difference there, though for some reason I don’t think she recognizes it.

  2. Of course she recognizes it. She was a foul-mouthed socialist/closet commie flack for Arafag and his followers and just shifted her loyalty to his successor(s) as they came along. She just was never called on her anti-sematic spewings because her colleages were all too busy venerating her anti-conservative/republican wisdom.
