Helen Thomas Uninvited to Speak
Her crime?  Agreeing with Bartcop


A high school graduation speech by veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas has been canceled 
because of remarks she made about Israel, the school's principal said in an e-mail Sunday.

Thomas had been scheduled to speak at the June 14 graduation of Walt Whitman High School, 
but Principal Alan Goodwin said she was being replaced. The school hasn't picked a new speaker.
"Graduation celebrations are not the venue for divisiveness," Goodwin wrote.

Thomas, a columnist for Hearst Newspapers, issued an apology on her Web site on Friday for comments 
that were captured on video by an interviewer for the website On the video dated May 27, 
Thomas says Israelis should "get the hell out of Palestine," suggesting they go to Germany, Poland or the U.S.

How dare she have an opinion?  
And how dare she speak that opinion where others could hear it.

Helen Thomas is too old to lie to you.
She thinks what she thinks and she says what she thinks.

And she's right - we could have partial world peace 
if Israel would agree to give up that stupid sacred sand.

We could move Israel to southern Arizona and solve all kinds of problems
but people don't want their problems solved - they want to wallow in them.

What fun is living in peace?
Who wants to see their grandchildren grow up, anyway?

Why not live your whole lives surrounded by insane people who want you dead?
But...perhaps to keep her job, she had to tell them the lies they love to hear.

"I deeply regret my comments" Thomas wrote on her site on Friday. "They do not reflect 
  my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties 
  recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance.  May that day come soon."

I can't even tell what that's supposed to mean, but that's probably Helen Thomas's first lie .
She knows (better than me) that peace isn't coming to the religiously-insane.

We live in a stupid country.
We live in a country where you have to tell stupid lies to keep your job.
