Mute Them!

There is no “other side” and who is this Peter Beinart all of a sudden? I’ve heard his name mentioned as a meshimut, a Jew who hates his own flesh, and only when I saw him on CNN did I realize the extent of the illness. Sick boy. People like that are not merely perverse. They glory in their perversity.

He grew louder and more obnoxious as he kept rubbing it in against Israel. He even drowned out Alan Dershowitz.

Why is Dersh even on the same panel? Dersh is a supporter of Israel. He also supports a “two-state solution.” How’s that workin’ out for ya?

As I’ve said, Gaza IS the two-state solution and Hamas terror is the result. Remind me not to pick horses with you, Mr. Harvard professor.

Why am I even watching this? Well I am, but I am not listening.

Years ago I realized that the mute button is the greatest invention known to man. So I have muted every commercial since. I don’t know what’s buying or what’s selling….and these days everybody is selling Hamas. These are also commercials with the usual deceptions, only more so, because in selling cars or soap there is always some truth to the message.

For Hamas the fabrications are 100 percent. But the networks are buying. They insist on listening to the mumbo jumbo. Both sides, y’know.

I wonder if the same networks rushed to Berlin to hear what Joseph Goebbels had to say. Yes, give him equal time to illustrate the rightness of his kamph.

Or how about an interview with Tokyo Rose to give her an equal say against FDR, and throw in poet, Nazi-lover, convicted traitor Ezra Pound.

Don’t think so.


What’s our excuse here in America? We used to be the good guys, remember?
So it goes, however, as Hamas is placed on the level with Israel. This equates the darkness of a death cult to a light unto the nations.

I can understand the BBC giving Hamas the floor. This is Europe. Anti-Semitism is their pastime. It’s their baseball.

But what’s our excuse here in America? We used to be the good guys, remember? Remember Gary Cooper in “High Noon?”

He never gave the Miller gang a chance or so much as a second thought. America cheered.

What happened to us? Do we really need to hear from the “other side” when there is only one side?

So last night, insomnia-bound and flipping channels, I landed on PBS and Charlie Rose. I always found Charlie to be something of a fraud. I know real newsmen and he is not one of them and sure enough he is interviewing one of those Hamas leaders and giving the full respect treatment as if that thug were a real person. This is not a man. This is an animal. I love my dog but I would never think of interviewing my dog.

These beasts of the field, let them howl. But they have no right to speak. Yet American TV gives them their prime time any time.

Anyway, I muted. This is my advice; mute the sons of bitches. Listen to not a single word that comes from the source of so much evil.

Listening to them is hazardous to your health and causes brain damage. So by muting the enemy you are doing your part to win this war.

On another channel cabinet member Naftali Bennett rescued the night, saying, “Our clear military decision is to leave Hamas defeated and disarmed.”

Amen to that, said King David. Speaking of the Hamas of his day, he swore to “destroy them in wrath…crush them until they are no more.” (Psalm 59)

One more message from David (Psalm 31) and then good night – “Be strong, and let your heart take courage.”
