Poor Put-upon Palestinians Just Lie American Slaves, Says Erdrogan, In A Dog Whistle To The Left, And More Anti-Semitism From The Left *Open Thread*

by

Oh, yeah, that’s right – Palestinians are JUST like black slaves in the USA pre-Civil War (how about all of the slaves still in existence in some Muslim countries? No? Yeah, didn’t think so.). That is JUST how horrible Israel is, dontcha know.

At least that is what the now-dictator, or “sultan,” as this Right Scoop article terms him, Erdrogan of Turkey says. Yes, indeedy – just check out this tidbit from his recent proclamation, from the Right Scoop:

[…]

Erdogan said that “the only way to resolve is to establish an independent Palestinian state with sovereignty, with East Jerusalem as its capital, within the 1967 borders, and therefore pressure must be exerted on Israel.”

He pointed out that “impunity increases the aggressiveness of the perpetrators, and that is the reason that increases the number of crimes committed by Israel against the Palestinians.”

Erdogan added that “Israel is intransigent in continuing to strike international laws against the wall, drawing its courage from various forces around the world, and the policies pursued by the Israeli government against the Palestinians are no different from the policies of the old American administrations against blacks.”

He explained that “all attempts to achieve peace and stability in the region are doomed to failure, unless the crimes and massacres committed are accounted for.”

Holy smokes. That is quote the comparison, isn’t it? And it is just a tad disingenuous coming from a dictator, especially all that transgressor-oppressor stuff.

Oh, but wait – that ain’t all he said. Check out this little Call To Action by Turkey’s sultan:

[…]

“All Muslims should visit Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque,” Erdogan said during a speech at the International Forum of Endowments for Jerusalem in Istanbul.

He added that “the special figures on the visit of Muslims to Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, show a great failure in this regard.”

“From our historical beliefs and responsibilities, we pay great attention to Jerusalem and its cause and to the struggle of our Palestinian brothers for justice and truth, and we are making double efforts to make Jerusalem a city of security, stability and peace again,” he said. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Good Lord. Yes, oh, yes – by all means, have ALL Muslims storm Israel, the Great Oppressor of poor put-upon (terrorist) Palestinians. Israel must be SO big and mighty to be able to level such oppression against Muslims. This map shows just how big and mighty Israel is:

That’s Israel in the red. That tiny little red crescent-shape is Israel. So you can see why Arabs and Muslims are demanding their annihilation – because they are SO big and powerful, practically threatening to take over the entire region!

Ahem. Except they are not. Only the Arabic nations are threatening takeovers, and as Erdrogan said, that is what they want to do to the holy site of Jerusalem. He wants it to ONLY be for Muslims, the ones who built their mosque, Al-Aqsa, where the ancient Jewish (and Christian) holy site was/is.

In other words, Jews should be run out of an area in which they have lived for millennia so that Muslims can have the holy site all for themselves.

Now, you and I both know that Erdrogan’s choice of words is a MAJOR dog whistle to the Left. Equate a people or an issue that the Left is already embracing to the Civil Rights movement and slavery, and VOILA! You have them on your side. Never mind the kind of dictator Erdrogan is. Since he is speaking their language, I am sure they will be all over this, embracing Erdrogan’s remarks as “speaking truth to power.”

I could be wrong, but I doubt it. Especially when you consider the people who are educating our young people, like this new head of Faculty at Dartmouth, Bruce Duthu, a staunch BDS supporter and anti-all-things-Israel-including-scholars. Seriously. This is the kind of person elevated to a lofty position at a prestigious school. From the Daily Wire (h/t friend for this):

[…]

The Washington Free Beacon reports that “the pro-Israel community at Dartmouth College is reeling” as a result of this controversial appointment. “Duthu’s vocal support for boycotts of Israeli academics and efforts to lead the charge in the BDS movement is dangerous, [pro-Israel advocates] argue, and anathema to academic freedom,” adds The Free Beacon.

Duthu’s views are as extreme as they come. The professor supports an economic boycott of Israel proper in addition to an academic boycott of Jewish scholars from Israel.

As the co-author of a widely circulated BDS document, Duthu pushed for a complete boycott of Israeli academic institutions.

Now, doesn’t that sound like someone you would want educating your children? Yeah, me neither (if I had any) . That this professor, the now-head of Faculty, actually wrote a BDS document says a whole lot, and none of it good.

That Duthu was so honored is a slap in the face to the Jewish students there, and to free speech in general:

[…]

Ultimately, college President Hanlon refused to acknowledge the deep concerns of pro-Israel students and academic freedom advocates alike. As The Free Beacon points out, Hanlon’s silence about the threat against academic freedom posed by any sort of boycott or intimidation of Israeli scholars comes weeks after the college administration released a public statement strongly condemning President Trump’s immigration policies as slights against “international students and scholars.”

The glaring hypocrisy of Dartmouth and schools like it across the country have even caught the attention of lawmakers in Washington, who have begun to ask whether American universities are places of open academic inquiry or indoctrination camps for the Left. (Click here to read the rest.)

Oh! Oh! OH!!!!! (Hand up in the air) I know the answer to that one! Yes, they are centers of indoctrination!

And no doubt they will champion the Sultan of Turkey for slamming Israel, joining with him in his push for “Civil Rights” for Palestinians to take over a traditionally Jewish area. Never mind the abuses of Erdrogan because, well, he agrees with Lefties about how horrible Israel is to the poor Palestinians so shut up already!

Two things they are clearly not teaching our young people these days are critical thinking and history. And that is how we have gotten to this place in which a Sultan can invoke the specter of slavery in the USA as a means to the end of Israel. Wow…

This is an Open Thread.

    Fantastic Post Rev!

    It is so sad to me to see the universities in this country turned into anti-Semitic cesspools.

    Even the so-called “Christian” schools have bowed to Islamic hated of the Jews and tiny little Israel. ( love the map)

    While the left in this country calls Trump a dictator, which he is not, they will agree with a real dictator, Erdogan, because of his hatred of the Jews.

    Parents need to think twice before sending their children to these places where free speech and a diversity of thought are not welcome.

    Better a good honest plumber for a son or daughter than an idiot liberal scholar who can’t find a job.

    Or how about landscaping? Maybe there wouldn’t be the need for all those illegals cutting the grass of the elites if some of our young people got out in the sun and learn how to bend the back.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Thanks so much, Marge – I appreciate it.

      And what a great comment.. You are so right abt the universities and what they have become. It is truly disturbing.

      I agree completely – kids don’t HAVE to go to college to have fulfilled lives. There are WAY more options available, and ones that don’t involve indoctrination.

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        Some where along the way we were convinced that only a college education was what was best for young people.

        It should be obvious by the “educated” fools the colleges are returning to parents that the end result of their education is sub-standard.

    After Trump Vows to Arm Syrian Kurds, the Next Move Is Erdogan’s

    ISTANBUL — President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey lost his first major political battle with the Trump administration, which is arming the Syrian Kurds who the Turks consider enemies. The question now is what Mr. Erdogan, a headstrong leader, will do next.

    The White House made the move to arm the Kurdish fighters, despite vociferous objections from Turkey, because it considers them an effective military proxy in the fight against the Islamic State.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Oh, I bet Erdrogan DIDN’T like that one bit. Yeah, can’t have someone actually able to fight ISIS because Erdrogan doesn’t like them. I mean, really – so they are “enemies” of Turkey’s, run by a dictator. What abt that whole, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend,” thing? Erdrogan SHOULD be grateful, seems to me. But what do I know?

    Judge blocks VA from firing corrupt employee who failed veterans

    By Daniel Horowitz

    The judicial tyranny never fails to disappoint. Now a federal court is saying the president can’t fire corrupt bureaucrats who run the VA hospitals and have failed our veterans.

    Amidst the brouhaha over the firing of FBI Director James Comey, many commentators have brought to life the debate over the president’s ability to fire executive personnel. Anyone with a rudimentary understanding of the Constitution should recognize that, politics aside, a president has the legal authority to fire any executive official, because there is no position that is independent from the president’s executive leadership (assuming that position is not under the auspices of the legislative or judicial branches of government).

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      What. The. HELL???? What the HELL is wrong with these judges?? It is insane that bureaucrats cannot be fired from their jobs, ones that WE are paying for, I might add.

      These judges have lost their FREAKIN’ minds.

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        When congress did NOTHING to quell “judicial activism” they felt free to move to judicial tyranny. Will congress act now?

    Here Are 5 Candidates For New FBI Director. #3 Will Make You Laugh.

    http://www.dailywire.com/news/16289/here-are-5-candidates-new-fbi-director-3-will-make-aaron-bandler

    #5 would be my choice.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Thanks for this. Yeah, you ain’t only kidding – #3 would be a terrible choice. I think you are right that #5 would be a good choice.

      Gowdy would be great in a number of positions, like maybe a federal judge, or some other high ranking position. Having an atty oversee the FBI, like Comey was, may not be the right choice. Hence Kelly.

    Jerusalem – the holiest city would end up being destroyed the extremists, just like other places in Iraq and Afghanistan where ISIS and other extremists rule.

    Alan Dershowitz makes some great points in this article: http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/alan-dershowitz-trump-did-not-obstruct-justice-in-firing-james-comey/article/2622875

    This is his conclusion, and he is right: Partisanship seems to have no limits these days. Both parties are equally at fault, as are extremists among the public and within the media. It is getting harder and harder to have a nuanced debate about complex political issues. Everything is either evil or good; nothing has elements of both. Actions either deserve criminal indictment or the Nobel Prize. Nobody benefits from this kind of discussion. So let’s agree to disagree about important issues, but let’s not distort the debate with extremist slogans like “lock her up” or “obstruction of justice.” We are better than that.
