Ben Smith picks up a disturbing radio interview of Chuck Schumer by Nachum Segal, who is apparently to the right of Schumer and of course has influence, in which Schumer repeatedly sides with Israel over Obama and says the collective punishment of the Palestinian people in Gaza is tough luck. Notice Schumer's claim that all Americans share his feeling, but the contradictory statement that it's "Jewish members" of Congress who will be meeting Obama to stand up for Israel. Oh my. Amy Goodman, please run for Congress. Notice that Schumer has Obama's ear and brags of spending lots of time with Netanyahu.
I seem to recall the Nazis saying that the people in those slave labor camps "deserved it."
In any event, I am tired of politicians campaigning for American votes, winning American office, being paid by American tax dollars, and then spending all their time working for Israel's interests.
This election season I have one and only one message, which I urge you to share with all your friends. America, especially now, needs leaders who will put America first, second, and third. Any politician bragging about what a good friend they are to a foreign government needs to be kicked out of office hard enough to bounce three times on the pavement!
