Detroit – Wayne State University will no longer offer an award named in honor of one of its most famous alumni, former White House Press Corps member Helen Thomas, officials announced today. The Helen Thomas Spirit of Diversity award will no longer be handed out because of controversial statements Thomas, an Arab American, made during a conference in Dearborn on Thursday that resurrected a controversy from earlier this year.
What did Helen say to get her alma mater and the puppet media to turn their back on her?
“I stand by it. I told the truth,” Thomas said. “I paid a price but it’s worth it to speak the truth.”
Asked by The Detroit Free Press how she’d respond to people who say she’s anti-Semitic, Thomas responded: “I’d say I’m a Semite. What are you talking about?”
“I can call a president of the United States anything in the book, but I can’t touch Israel, which has Jewish-only roads in the West Bank,” Thomas said. “No American would tolerate that — white-only roads.”
“Congress, the White House and Hollywood, Wall Street are owned by the Zionists. No question, in my opinion,” she said. “They put their money where their mouth is. … We’re being pushed into a wrong direction in every way.”
In the interview, she said the Iraq war was “built on lies. … No weapons of mass destruction. No ties to al-Qaida. What is this? Why are we killing those people? And why are we there?”
Thomas talked about the problems that Palestinians face. “Arabs are not terrorists,” she said.
Rather, she pointed to former Israeli leader Menachem Begin’s activities during Israel’s campaign for statehood. “They bragged, in his first book, about creating the modus operandi for terrorists,” she said.
Thomas also said she’s proud of her Arab roots, but stressed that she’s fully American.
“I never felt I was an Arab American. I felt I was an American,” she said.
Meanwhile, Obama takes a trip to Afghanistan to rally the pawns, the temporarily smiling dupes of his war … some of whom will die in vain or be maimed physically or psychologically for the treachery of politicians and profiteers.
The ‘commander in chief’ repeats the same lies as he has so many times before.
9/11 al Qaeda … 9/11 al Qaeda … 9/11 al Qaeda …
“I ordered additional troops to serve in this country that was the staging ground for the 9/11 attacks.
And we will never let this country serve as a safe haven for terrorists who would attack the United States of America again.
This part of the world is the center of a global effort where we are going to disrupt and dismantle and defeat al Qaeda and its extremist allies. And that’s why you’re here. That’s why your mission matters so much. That’s why you must succeed — because this effort is about the safety of our communities back home and the dignity of the Afghan people who don’t want to live in tyranny.”
A damn liar. The president of the United States is a traitorous liar and murdering war whore.
But Helen Thomas speaks her mind and what does that get her?
Heartfelt respect from all those who treasure truth.
