Fight Racism

I already knew that my Phonycrat Sen. Chuck "Loves Torture" Schumer was racist, but I didn't know that he was this sickening of a bigot. (From Think Progress - Hat Tip: Unbrainwashed)

SCHUMER: The Palestinian people still don’t believe in the Jewish state, in a two-state solution. More do than before, but a majority still do not. Their fundamental view is, the Europeans treated the Jews badly and gave them our land — this is Palestinian thinking [...] They don’t believe in the Torah, in David [...] You have to force them to say Israel is here to stay. The boycott of Gaza to me has another purpose — obviously the first purpose is to prevent Hamas from getting weapons by which they will use to hurt Israel — but the second is actually to show the Palestinians that when there’s some moderation and cooperation, they can have an economic advancement. When there’s total war against Israel, which Hamas wages, they’re going to get nowhere. And to me, since the Palestinians in Gaza elected Hamas, while certainly there should be humanitarian aid and people not starving to death, to strangle them economically until they see that’s not the way to go, makes sense.

The military siege of Gaza is a racist crime against humanity. It's perpetrators are subject to criminal prosecution in any country in the world. Unbrainwashed also discusses Schumer's theocratic bigotry against people who don't believe the Jewish religion.
But Schumer is worse than that. He believes that Palestinians deserve it because "they don't believe in the Torah." Hey, I don't believe in the Torah, does that make it okay for someone to economically strangle me until I do? All this proves is that Israel is not a democracy, but an apartheid theocracy, albeit a racist one, where those people not of the state religion are not entitled to the same rights as those of the correct religion.

I don't believe in the Torah, David, or any other religious claptrap. I'm sick of people like Chuck Schumer, Pat Robertson, and Osama bin Laden acting like it is OK to murder people merely for not sharing in a superstitious religious faith.

Also, Schumer attacks the Palestinians for acknowledging a fact that nobody can honestly dispute, "the Europeans treated the Jews badly and gave them our land." Attacking this reflects Schumer's racist attitude that brown skinned peoples' sole purpose of existence is to be punished for crimes committed by white people.

Chuck Schumer is a truly heinous bigot. There is no way I could ever vote for him for any public office again after this.

  2. I normally do not agree with Pat Buchanan, but he was spot on when he said that our Congress is an Israeli occupied territory.
    Schumer as so many others in our government are Israel firsters. They take their orders from Tel Aviv via AIPAC.

  4. Well said. I agree with the commenter RealityZone as well.

  6. What gets me is that after the disgraceful treatment of Palestinians by the US and Israel, both countries are surprised that the people of Palestine voted for Hamas over the Israel/US puppet Fatah Party. And since they exercised their freedom of choice as a democratic people, they are being "strangled" (in Sen. Schumer's words) for not choosing the "right" party.

  8. Lew: I remember the run up to the elections. IMHO: It was a set up. They were not surprised at all. They wanted Hamas to win. Please remember that Israel thrives on chaos. They need chaos to justify their apartheid rogue state. And to continue the illegal settlements along with their slow but thorough process of ethnic cleansing.
    Because Hamas won, the West immediately declared them a [terror] State. Israel then had their Gulag Gaza. It was a set up.

     
  9. Please accept my apology for bringing up a tangential issue of bias-aroused politics, but I have to note that, like you, Markos C. Alberto Moulitsas Zúñiga is admittedly a "godless" atheist.

    However, any similarity ends there, because Moulitsas has been virulently anti-gay rights, e.g. saying that there is something "inherently uncomfortable" about serving alongside gays in the military.

    Ironically, this letter has caused thousands of people to suspect that Markos is gay, and a look at the Site Meter of the Truth About Kos blog, at any time and on any day, will show that at least half of the visitors come from Google after searching the question, "Is Markos Moulitsas gay?"

    What shocked me this weekend was to see, for the first time, someone coming to the Truth About Kos Blog after searching Google with the question, "Is Markos Moulitsas openly gay?" (Emphasis added.)

    It seems that at least one person has taken the leap of believing that Moulitsas is gay and wants to know whether Moulitsas has publicly confirmed it.

    As I say at the Truth About Kos blog, I read literally every biographical piece written by the mainstream media about Markos C. Alberto Moulitsas Zúñiga (MAMZ) in preparation of "The Indictment of Markos C. Alberto Moulitsas ZÚÑIGA (MAMZ) by Justice and History (Updated with Additional Information and Counts)."

    I have never seen an instance in which MAMZ has suggested, acknowledged, or intimated that he was or might be gay, except in two places:

    1) He said in an article called "The Soldier Within Me" at the American Prospect Magazine that he effectively didn't feel like a man within himself and didn't appear to be a man to others until the US Army he succeeded in its effort to "rebuild" Moulitsas into a man:

    "But basic training was the best thing to ever happen to me. They say they break you down in basic training so they can rebuild you into a real man. "The Soldier in Me," Markos Moulitsas Zúñiga, The American Prospect, April 16, 2006."

     
  10. To continue the discussion, in the same article he lists a number of personal characteristics he had before the army that made him seem like something other than a "real man."

    When taken in context with the letter MAMZ wrote to the Northern Illinois University "Norther Star", in which MAMZ acknowledges that, even after basic training, he was afraid that others were looking at his underpants, a lot of people have thought that in MAMZ hardcore opposition to gays in the military, MAMZ protested too much for his letter to be received at face value.

    As for being a "liberal," MAMZ undercuts his bona fides on this when he concedes that he was training to enter the CIA's Clandestine services in 2002, when he decided to start DailyKos. (See a transcript of the audiotape and/or listen to the tape itself.)

  12. I often agree with Schumer on may issues, but here, he's just wrong. I'm sure the reason for his pandering is that he fears a Jewish backlash. However, I also think that most American Jews want Israel to end the blockade.
