The Jew hating Democrats come out.



Politics can be an ugly “sport.” On Thursday, this point was proven when the Democratic contest surrounding Connecticut’s U.S. Senate seat became so heated that Lee Whitnum, one of the lesser-known contenders, called opponent Congressman Chris Murphy a “whore.”

During a live, televised debate, Whitnum unleashed on her opponent, taking particular aim at his pro-Israel stance.

“I’m dealing with a whore here who sells his soul to AIPAC [The American Israel Public Affairs Committee], who will say anything for the job,” she said.

Whitnum also called opponent William Tong, a Connecticut state representative, “ignorant” during her tirade, which was part of the debate’s closing statements.

Murphy responded, saying, “I’ve advocated for the candidates to be part of these debates. I might think twice about that with that kind of awful language being used on the airwaves.”

Here’s how the Associated Press described the incident that unfolded at the Democratic debate:

Murphy, former Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz, state Rep. William Tong and Matthew Oakes each expressed disgust over the comments made by Lee Whitnum, a vocal critic of U.S. aid to Israel…

The five are vying for the party’s endorsement and ultimately to fill the seat being vacated by the retiring Sen. Joe Lieberman, an independent.

Oakes, another lesser known candidate, said he doesn’t believe Whitnum should be allowed to participate in future debates. The next one is scheduled for Monday at the University of Connecticut.

“And I was the one that spoke out loudest about including all the candidates,” he said. “The fact that she just attempted to ruin the good that I was trying to do is offensive to me. … I can’t in all good conscience say, `Well include us in the debates, all of us,” if she’s going to be that offensive.”

    Lee Whitnum is what we need in our Congress, as she knows the difference between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism. For far too long, Israel’s agents within both Houses, and within the Executive branch have had too much say in US foreign policy, as Israel continues to defy scores of UN binding Security Council Resolutions and other tenets of international law, including Geneva Convention IV, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The aggressive, even murderous policies of Israel have cost the US allies, and made enemies of former allies, while our Congress continues to send billions of US tax dollars to Israel.

    Zionism is a political movement that has created a racist, apartheid state with yet undeclared borders, as Israel’s leaders continue illegal colony building on Palestinian lands:
    Judaism is the original of three monotheistic major religions on our planet. Zionism and Israel have no place in the great Judaic religion, according to the Jewish Holy books. They are abominations, and these good people and Lee Whitnum know this:

    But Zionist propagandists have so successfully conflated Zionism, Judaism and Israel, that many of us don’t know this, and we allow our legislators to be unduly influenced by the Zionist Lobby, and send money abroad to defend Israel’s illegal acts while our infrastructure and social programs go lacking at home.

    Electing knowledgeable and courageous legislators like Lee Whitnum is the only way we are go solve this problem, and the only way we are going to help Israel save itself from suicide-by- continuing-belligerence in a part of the world that is rapidly changing.
