Re: “Helen Thomas and the Media's Double Standard

Helen Thomas is an anti-semite. That means she is a racist. Her comments are racist and reflect her Nazi mentality. She has the freedom to say what she said and your newspaper has the freedom to print the stuff and those who try to defend her "so called right to say it", due mostly to the sacrifices of many decent people who died to defend those freedoms. One also has the freedom to call African Americans by the N word. However, each is insulting due to the historical significance of the terms. She is an ignorant and bigoted woman and if her employer defends her, then their agenda is clear. Also our government has the right and duty to ban her as she is violating the rights and demeaning the character of Jewish people everywhere, and especially those who sacrificed to make Israel the ONLY democracy in the middle east; and, that want to live in peace and embrace all religions and cultures. Israelis want to live with all peace loving Palestinians; whereas those who speak for the Palestinians want the Jews to (as Helen Thomas puts it) "get the hell out" of the great country they built in a barren land.

I am a Christian who believes that the Judea/Christian culture and set of values made this country great and open to all who want to live in peace and respect for each other and their religious beliefs. Our families fought and died for those values throughout Europe.

Can you imagine what media attention this would have gotten had it been uttered by the "dreaded Tea Party". Am I wasting my time sending this to the "City Paper". Is your agenda showing? I hope not. Is there a chance you will print this in a prominate spot?

Freedom is only viable coupled with responsibility. If we don't live by the latter we are sure to lose the former.
