Why don't the Palestinians just go back where they came fro--oh...

dystopianfuturetoday - 2010-06-12

5 stars for a crazy clip.

-4 for the editorializing at the end of the clip

Jet Bin Fever - 2010-06-12

Seen it a billion times on cable news. I was hoping there would be silly editing, a techno beat, and some anime characters thrown in there. I was thoroughly disappointed.

Michael Houser - 2010-06-12

She should be allowed to say whatever she wants - you just know it'd all be entertaining. They could have a round table forum on it the next day, leading to exciting and informative debate -- call it: "Oh Helen!"
Instead, she just gets fired. In the prime of her career!

added appropriate tag

I award her 5 stars of david

garcet71283 - 2010-06-12

These stars are for the inevitable antisemitic shitstorm masquerading as humanitarianism that these videos always stir up on poeTV.

phalsebob - 2010-06-12

Thanks, we need a bit of calm, rational debate here. Glad you kaiboshed all that human rights hogwash from the start.

no youre right jews, bulldozing other peoples houses and making grand jew homes on your new jew land is the right thing to jew.

Palestine allied with the Nazis and sent troops to join the Waffen SS.
Sometimes people lose wars, what can you do.

wtf japan - 2010-06-12

American Indians allied with the French and sent troops to join French forces during the Seven Years War. Sometimes people are brown, what can you do.

Nithing - 2010-06-12

One star for each thousand times I've heard a still-employed talking head suggest the Palestinians should get out of their homeland.

Xenocide - 2010-06-12

To be fair, if she hadn't mentioned Poland and Germany I doubt this would have amounted to anything.

To be double-fair, I am quite sick of Israel apologists using the Holocaust as a Get Out of Morality Free card.

Bort - 2010-06-12

Agreed -- if she'd said something to the effect of "Israelis need to return to the borders set by the UN", that would have been defensible. If she'd said that Israelis should all move to Maine or Alberta, it would have been baffling and a sign of dementia, but that's it. Instead she picked the two countries most associated with Nazi death camps, and if that's just a coincidence, it's a hell of a coincidence.

The most generous possibility is that her brain was going "Say anything except Germany or Poland, say anything except Germany or Poland", and she befuddled herself into saying "Germany or Poland".

Nithing - 2010-06-12

People seem to think she was saying "LOL BACK TO AUSCHWITZ JEWS" when she was actually listing the places of origin for most of the initial Israeli population (and included the US).

phalsebob - 2010-06-12

If Israeli moved back to Germany or Poland, they would be sure to be killed. Yes sir!

Bort - 2010-06-12

I think you're mistaken, phalsebob: in today's climate, it's unlikely that Jews would be killed on sight in Poland or Germany. But "Go back to Germany" is still a pretty hateful thing to say to a Jew. "Go back to Germany and be successful and get along famously with your neighbors" is less hateful but it isn't what Helen actually said.

Big Name Celebrity - 2010-06-16

Actually, I wouldn't want to be an Israeli trying to emigrate into Poland. Shit's still kind of all fucked up and Eastern European-y there.

John Holmes Motherfucker - 2010-06-12

It was an unprofessional, crazy old lady thing to say. Nothing good was ever going to come out of it. I think she did it because she was angry at the same stuff we've all been seeing in the news, and because she is 150 years old. I think she took a step back, and decided it was time to leave, because if you can't say whatever the hell you want at 150, when can you? I think she's going to spend her remaining days telling people to fuck off, and enjoying it immensely.

If Israel would go back to 1967 borders, the US should spend every dime and every drop of blood necessary to ensure Israel's survival. Otherwise, not one more dime, not one more drop of blood.

Feyd - 2010-06-12

Poor fucking lady has dementia (which people have been accommodating for years) and has the displeasure of being the target of too much scrutiny for too long. She's been the conscience, the splinter in the side, of every President we've lived under. Go fucking Helen Thomas, history's only effectual Punk.

kwash - 2010-06-12

The title of the video is "Helen Thomas has lost her mind" not "Helen Thomas was secretly an anti-semite her entire life."

Feyd - 2010-06-12

Okay then let's revel in it. Let's just fucking debase ourselves and wallow in it; roll back and forth like a pig in filth. This out-of-context clown-makeup thing is very fair.

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2010-06-12

Well at least she'll always have that career in asking for the beef to fall back on.

Meatsack Jones - 2010-06-12

The last 5 seconds kills it all.

Jeriko-1 - 2010-06-12

Oh God.

I've seen that look before.

That twinkle in the eyes of Kaufman years ago when he was really getting his troll on.

Severian - 2010-06-12

One Helen agrees.

cognitivedissonance - 2010-06-12

Remember: Anti-Zionism IS EXACTLY THE SAME THING as Anti-Semitism. Debate this and the black helicopters arrive.
