Jewish Funds for Justice Ad

Glenn Beck: George Soros, who as a child in Hungary survived the Holocaust by living with a non-Jewish family “used to go around with this anti-Semite and deliver papers to the Jews and confiscate their property and then ship them off. And George Soros was part of it. He would help confiscate the stuff. It was frightening. Here’s a Jewish boy helping send the Jews to the death camps.” November 11, 2010

 Roger Ailes: There are some “left-wing rabbis who basically don’t think that anyone can use the word ‘Holocaust’ on the air.” November 16, 2010 “[NPR] are, of course, Nazis. They have a kind of Nazi attitude. They are the left-wing of Nazism.” November 17, 2010

 Rabbis to Rupert Murdoch: ‘Sanction Glenn Beck’ An open letter on the occasion of UN Holocaust Remembrance Day January 27, 2011

 Dear Mr. Murdoch,

 We are rabbis of diverse political views. As part of our work, we are devoted to preserving the memory of the Shoah, and to passing its lessons on to our future generations and to all humankind. All of us have vigorously defended the Holocaust’s legacy. We have worked to encourage the responsible invocation of its symbols as a powerful lesson for the future.

 We were therefore deeply offended by Roger Ailes’ recent statement attributing the outrage over Glenn Beck’s use of Holocaust and Nazi images to “left-wing rabbis who basically don’t think that anybody can ever use the word ‘Holocaust’ on the air.”

Rabbis call on Fox to rein in Beck

Today, January 27, is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.  The 27th of January was designated as such in 2005 and marks the day Auschwitz-Birkenau was liberated in 1945.  The U.S. Holocaust Museum will honor survivors in the Museum’s Hall of Remembrance. 

The Washington Post reports:

A coalition of rabbis wants Fox News chief Roger Ailes and conservative host Glenn Beck to cut out all their talk about Nazis and the Holocaust, and it’s making its views known in an unusual place.

The rabbis have called on Fox News’s owner, Rupert Murdoch, to sanction his two famous employees via a full-page ad in Thursday’s editions of the Wall Street Journal – one of many other media properties controlled by Murdoch’s News Corp.

WTF, Sarah Palin

From ABC News:

Sarah Palin waited a day to come out swinging about the State of the Union Address.  In an interview with Greta Van Susteren  Wednesday night, Palin told her “it was a tough speech to sit through and try to stomach.”

Palin then did a play on words with Winning the Future, the President’s slogan. 

She mocked the president’s slogan of “Winning the Future.”

She noted the initials are “WTF” and then observed there were “a lot of WTF moments through that speech.” For the uninitiated, “WTF” is what the kids often use in short-hand to signify, “What the…”

How trendy.  How childish.  What parts did she not like?  She sure didn’t take long to fall off the civility bandwagon.  WTF, who cares.
