So what she said was no big deal.
That apparently is John Cole’s point in You Got Played, because in the full video which was just released Thomas was nice to the Jewish students:
Now that Helen Hitler Thomas has been forcibly retired, more video of the interview miraculously has become available for viewing….
Clearly, this woman is evil beyond words. The way she smiled at those Jewish kids while giving them friendly advice to enter careers in journalism so they can have fulfilling lives of learning and accomplishment when secretly, I have been assured by
liberals and others, what she really wants is to transport them back to the gas ovens of the Holocaust.
So we all were “played.”
Because apparently Helen Thomas must not have said what she said in the original edited video.
Except that she did. It’s in both videos.
She gave advice on how to become a journalist, she’s just a caring person.
So because not everything Thomas said was abhorrent means that the abhorrent statements are excused?
But she was so nice to the Jewish students who interviewed her.
So saying what she said was okay because she said it with a smile?
Just like the Syrian representative to the U.N. Human Rights Council:
“Israel…is a state that is built on hatred…Let me quote a song that a group of children on a school bus in Israel sing merrily as they go to school and I quote ‘With my teeth I will rip your flesh. With my mouth I will suck your blood.'”
Nooooo problem. I hear he said it with a smile on his face.
Which must be why the U.S. representative said nothing in response.
And now for the full feel-good video:
