Quote of the Day


"Does (Abraham) Foxman believe that bigotry is OK if people think they're victims? Does the anguish of Palestinians, then, entitle them to be anti-Semitic?"

-- Newsweek columnist and CNN host Fareed Zakaria, in his explanation of why he's choosing to return the Hubert Humphrey award given to him by the Anti-Defamation League five years ago in response to the group's opposition to a proposed Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero

Wow, considering I find Zakaria a public tool and a hack of a historian, I didn't know he had it in him.

What a crazy viewpoint! And to do something after 5 years? Does he have values or something?

Now, Fareed may have an empty space on his award shelf to win a new award for CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS

Fuck this schmuck Zakaria and every other anti-Semite including that goddamn Jimmy Carter.

Oh, Hell. I'd be happy to offend anyone dumb enough to buy into this anti-mosque crap. Good for Zakaria for taking this stand, though I'm sure a diligent search will turn up some embarassing things he's said or done as well.

Wow. That took an incredible amount of courage. Good on him.

I'm sorry...I just can't stop thinking about the teeth.

This just makes me wonder how a Palestinian could be anti-Semitic.

The ADL has amended their mission statement: "[The ADL] fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry, defends democratic ideals and protects civil rights for all except muzzies and q-tip-heads."
