Alan Dershowitz: Valerie Plame knew exactly what she was tweeting
Fox News. com ^ | September 23, 2017 | Alan Dershowitz Fox News

Posted on 09/24/2017 10:29:02 AM PDT by Kaslin

Valerie Plame had to know what she was doing. The unmasked former CIA officer retweeted a virulently anti-Semitic article by a well-known bigot on the Jewish High Holy Day of Rosh Hashanah, which she characterized as “thoughtful.” Now she's trying to make excuses, but they don't wash.

The retweeted article by Phillip Giraldi itself contains the usual anti-Semitic tropes: Jews are guilty of dual loyalty; they control politicians, the media and entertainment; they want the U.S. to fight wars for the country to which they have real allegiance – Israel; they are dangerous to America. Giraldi has been pushing this garbage for years and Plame is one of his fans.

But this particular article goes much further in its neo-Nazi imagery. It states: “The media should be required to label (Jews like Bill Kristol) at the bottom of the television screen whenever they pop up …. That would be kind-of-like a warning label on a bottle of rat poison – translating roughly as ingest even the tiniest little dosage of the nonsense spewed by Bill Kristol at your own peril."

In other words, Jewish supporters of Israel – like Kristol and me – should have to wear the modern-day equivalent of the yellow star Nazis forced Jews to wear before we are allowed to appear on TV and poison real Americans. Nice stuff that Plame was retweeting and characterizing as thoughtful.

This was not the first time Plame retweeted Giraldi’s garbage. In 2014 she retweeted one of his screeds with the following notation: “Well put.” And after retweeting the current anti-Semitic article she described it as: “Yes, very provocative, but thoughtful. Many neocon hawks ARE Jewish. Ugh.”

I can’t help but wonder if anyone on the left is even speaking to Alan these days.....he certainly seems slightly off the reservation quite often.

If the guy is attacking Kristol, maybe we can find some common ground...

Not when the attack is based solely on Kristol being a Jew

I swear, people on the Left are just evil, and they think that no one notices.
But people are noticing. People are waving flags and shouting, “We see that you are evil!”
And the Left keeps doing evil crap, chuckling, “They’ll never notice this.”
Even Leftists like Dershowitz are responding, “OMG! I see what you’re doing! You are evil!!”
And the Left laughs and says, “I can’t believe I’m getting away with this.”

We now have 2 Stupid Parties. Or maybe just the one.

The former CIA operative must explain how she came upon the article. Who sent it to her? Does she regularly read bigoted website?

I thought Dershowitz was better than that. I read a website that carries Giraldi, even though I don't read his stuff. But I've clicked on it.

She apparently is an anti-semite of long standing according to some Twitter followers.

Alan Dershowitz was right on target here.

She knew!

The media tried to cast Trump as an anti-Semite, because,... well just because. Never-mind his daughter is married to a Jewish man. Trump has him assisting him in the White House, at the very seat of power.

Here Valerie Plame pulls this stunt and,... crickets!

The Leftist media and Democrat feigned repulse or lack of it in the face of Antisemitism, reveals them for only part of the vile evil people and entities they are.

Democrats know what they are doing, and who and what they are supporting too.

Never forget!

The “former CIA operative” was an operative of WHAT? VP is a attention whore and she and her d-bag husband made a fortune off of libtardism. Bush put Libby in prison (wrongly) for this b*tch but the “unmasking” is totally cool now.

Your crude sentiments suggest that you have no comprehension of what the issue is or whose side Alan is on.

The underlying issue is explaining how the U.S. come to adopt an anti-Israeli policy in the Middle East. That a Valerie Plame is retweeting anti-Semitic articles -with approval as Dershowitz notes - tells us volumes about how American foreign policy drifted into a very bad place.

True, but he's just as often on it as well.

A couple of years ago, one talk show host (whose wife was a satisfied client of Dersh) wondered why the Dersh was opening himself up to abuse, occasionally speaking truth to stupidity, given his time of life.

Doesn't change where he usually keeps his head.

Plame’s grandfather was Jewish; she passes the Mischling Test, and would have to wear one of those “thoughtful” rat poison labels herself.

There, now the statement is 100% accurate.

I’ve never agreed with the concept of dual citizenship. You’re either a citizen of one country, or a citizen of the other that you reside. You are not not a citizen of both!

And from what I’ve noticed, dual citizenship becomes dual loyalty.

I think we should do away with the entire practice of dual citizenship. And I have thought that for a long time.

“Plame obviously was the New York Times unnamed source/leaker at the CIA, dishing dirt against George W Bush. The Joe Wilson accusations were about providing cover for a New York Times partisan source, as the best defense is a good offense. For the record, Bill Clinton claimed Saddam Hussein & Osama bin Laden were partners working together to build chemical weapons & moreover, British intelligence claims about Hussein trying to buy weapons-grade uranium from Africa were corroborated by a former prime minister of Niger, therefore it was Wilson & the fake news who lied, not President Bush or vice president Cheney.”....(quoted from a friend’s blog)

Valerie Plame was always sideways. That whole fiasco was made into a major crisis when it was complete bullshit.

Mueller is replaying it.
