As appalling a litany of dumbassery in support of blackest evil you’re ever likely to find.
How has it come to pass that the host of E! Network’s Fashion Police and author of Men Are Stupid…And They Like Big Boobs: A Woman’s Guide to Beauty Through Plastic Surgery thinks more clearly about the Jewish state and its terrorist neighbors than the bulk of the American entertainment industry, the majority of the global media, and the president of the United States? For someone on the crest of every trend, doesn’t Rivers know she is dangerously out of fashion on the subject of Israel?
Consider the statements of her fellow celebs: Actors Mark Ruffalo and John Cusack, actress and UNICEF ambassador Mia Farrow, and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain have all tweeted support for Gaza, as has comedian Rob Schneider, who added, “To not be outraged at the killing of children is to risk your very soul. #Gaza.” Under pressure from Palestinian academics this spring, scientist Stephen Hawking withdrew from a conference at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder interrupted a performance in the United Kingdom for a profanity-filled criticism of Israel, Comedy Central host Jon Stewart has earned accolades for his relentless criticism of Israel, and actress and pop star Selena Gomez posted “It’s about humanity. Pray for Gaza” to her Instagram.
Support for Israel is hard to come by. In 2011 singer Katy Perry replied to an Israeli follower’s “please pray with us” tweet — sent after Hamas rockets left eight Israelis dead and more than 30 wounded in the Red Sea town of Eilat — with “I am! My prayers are for you guys tonight, SHALOM!!!” Twitter users responded mercilessly: “You heartless lesbian,” wrote one. “Israel has killed THOUSANDS OF PALESTINIANS, yet you’re gonna pray for Israel? You shiz [sic].” Perry “spits on Gaza and it’s [sic] murdered children,” wrote another. Or a third: “I hope your private jet crash lands in Palestine so they can stamp on you like the whore you are.” A similar response greeted Kim Kardashian, who, during a Gaza flare-up in 2012, tweeted “Praying for everyone in Israel.” She subsequently removed her tweets and issued an apology.
Rivers’s unwavering support for Israel is deliciously heterodox. And it evinces a better grasp of the realities of the situation on the ground than most State Department sound bites do. When asked about civilian casualties in Gaza, she replied, “Don’t you dare put weapon stashes in private homes!” And commenting on the origins of the most recent violence, she was unequivocal: “They [Hamas] started it!…For months this has been going on.” Good luck getting John Kerry to be that forthright.
Thankfully, Kerry’s relevance and impact has evaporated right along with the USSSA’s.
The ferocity of Friday’s unanimous rejection by the Israeli government of Secretary of State John Kerry’s cease was kept quiet to prevent a formal rupture of relations between the two erstwhile allies, reports Israel’s Channel 2 Television.
The popular and widely-watched Saturday evening newscast quotes several unnamed high officials in the Israeli government who claimed that Kerry’s cease fire proposal represented a “complete cave-in” to Hamas’s demands for an end to fighting in its war against Israel.
Hamas, like Kerry and the rest of the Jew-hating Left, aren’t really seriously demanding “an end to fighting.” They’re demanding that Israel stop fighting back.
The official, and others cited in The Times of Israel, claimed that Israel was “stunned” and “absolutely horrified” (at) Kerry’s ceasefire proposal, which contained no demand that Hamas dismantle or destroy its terror tunnel network. It demanded that both Israel and Egypt open their border crossings with Gaza, from where all the devastating weapons of war were initially imported. Furthermore, the Kerry plan did not simply call for Hamas to be allowed to build a seaport on its Mediterranean coast; but that Israel and Egypt should help pay for it.
Fearing an open breach in US-Israel relations, Channel 2 reported that Israel’s outraged ministers decided to leak the terms of the Kerry proposal rather than formally respond to them. Israeli officials were enraged not just about the totally unexpected terms contained in the Kerry proposal but deeply offended by what they thought were the underhanded tactics he used to push it.
Which can come as a surprise only to someone not very familiar with Obama, Kerry, and the atrocious edifice they’re constructing over the smoking ruins of the Former USA. For the Israelis we’re fast becoming, in a grotesque parody of Major General Mattis’s slogan, “No more-treacherous friend, no deadlier enemy.”
Were it not for the financial and military aid we’ve traditionally provided to our only true ally (and the only civilized democracy) in the Middle East, Israel would be wise to have as little further to do with us as possible. If they’re counting on the FUSA to guarantee their security in the midst of fanatical enemies bent on their total destruction, “foolish” is almost too kind a word for them. Judging by their justly contemptuous dismissal of the moronic traitor Kerry’s embarrassing folly, I’d say they’re well enough aware of that dismal fact.
Considering all that, Joan River’s amusing demonstration of far greater native intelligence and integrity than Kerry can hardly be, shall we say, UNEXPECTED! I mean, good Lord, when has any action or statement of Kerry’s ever led anyone to think that he’s anything other than dumb as a box of hair, and useless as teats on a boar-hog? The only remotely intelligent thing he ever did was to marry his meal-ticket and hang on to her like grim death, ferchrissakes.
