Abraham Foxman was for Glenn Beck before he was against him and for him after he was against him. Okay, Abraham I guess your okay with Glenn Beck being chummy with white supremacist and spooning out bigotry in big doses as long as he claims to support Jewish people. He is just a little misguided at times so he can easily be excused for his racist propaganda and divisiveness according to you because he supports Jewish people. What about supporting other groups of people as well wouldn't that fall under what is right and fair too?
Which brings me to a question I have for Abraham. Why didn't you excuse Farrakhan's statements as misguided? After all, he did try to make amends with you and made several attempts to sit down with you and have a man to man talk. However, you've went out of your way to continously condemn and destroy him. Why wasn't any forgiveness for being misguided extended to Farrakhan by you?
Beck turned around and attacked you for speaking out against him for attacking Soros; he used an accusatorial tone towards you with a veil threat of revealing some of your hidden activities and funding of Soros and you changed your tune quick. Some of your own people are starting to question your credibility. Is it also okay with you that he uses anti-semitic comments, seems to have a Hitler fetish, smears nonwhite folks, and those he considers different from him?
Why can't the brothas get a little love and forgiveness too? And why does Beck gets a free ride? Come to think of it, Al Sharpen, Jesse Jackson,Tony Martin were all labeled anti-semetic, and so were quite a few others. Tony Martin fought back with his book. Farrakhan decided to fight back with a couple of books of his own. Al Sharpen and Jesse Jackson chose to ignore and go on about their business.
Thinking back, President Obama must have been added to that list, because Eric Cantor went over to Israel and usurped the President's power and met with Israel's leader regarding the President's stance against building those settlements in the President's first term. The President wrote some books for his daughters and now those books have come under attack because he wrote some positive things about Sitting Bull and Billie Holiday .
America is supposed to be a melting pot with diverse cultures of many groups of people that make up this nation. Yet, the only groups of people who seem to be being pushed out of the melting pot and constantly downgraded in their contributory accomplishments are nonwhites. They seem to be the only ones who are targeted for negative reinforcements. When it comes to hateful remarks aimed at them the beat goes on and so does bigotry.
Rick Sanchez was fired from his job and labeled not too bright and a few other things because of the statements he made on CNN about Jewish people. Beck smears Jewish people and gets to keep his job as long as he smears nonwhite people, including middleclass and poor whites, and others that they deem different from them who believe in equality and justice for ALL. Arsenio Hall's talk show host career ended after he had Farrahkhan on his show.
It appears that freedom of speech draws the line in the sand when it comes to Jewish people. There is always two sides to every story. Does the criteria considered in determining hatred only apply when someone points out flaws, faults, and wrongdoings of Jewish people? Is hatred towards other groups supposed to be regarded as trivial? After all, we're all supposed to be human beings aren't we? Isn't all hate the same?
However, people like Beck and Rush Limbaugh are allowed to spout out hate speech, divisiveness, and are regarded with high esteem that they are not worthy of at all just because they support Jewish people. You yourself said that you support Beck, so does that mean that you stand with him in hate for others? I support Jewish people too, but I do not support hate and wrongdoing. Nor do I support the intentional divisiveness, racism, and hatred that Beck and Rush manufacture and are able to get away.
Before I am labeled, which I could care less, let me say this in my defense. I am a woman that truly believes that ALL men were created EQUAL and are entitled to be treated fairly with dignity and respect that includes Jewish people. I do not believe in the supremacy of any group of people over another. I strongly believe in the humanity of every single human being on this earth. There is only one SUPREME BEING and that is GOD. I believe in what is right, just, and all human beings whether they are black, white, brown, yellow, or red are entitled to be treated equally; all have the same right to pursue happiness and the American dream. There is good and bad in each human group. None of them have a patent on being perfect. It is not hard to get along with people, nor is it hard to find something good and positive about people. Finding flaws, negatives, and faults in all groups of people, is easy too because we all have them.
