It's getting increasingly hard for folks on the left to keep defending the awful, overtly anti-semitic Helen Thomas.
“[The Jews are] using their power, and they have power in every direction…Power over the White House, power over Congress…Everybody is in the pocket of the Israeli lobbies, which are funded by wealthy supporters, including those from Hollywood. Same thing with the financial markets. There’s total control…It isn’t the two percent. It’s real power when you own the White House, when you own these other places in terms of your political persuasion. Of course they have power. [To the interviewer] You don’t deny that. You’re Jewish, aren’t you?”
Luckily Thomas is either too stupid, too senile, or simply doesn't care enough to continue applying the 'Zionist' veil (substituting 'Zionist' for Jew and pretending that it's not antisemitism).
