John Kerry Smacks Down Rush Limbaugh’s Comments on Israel

by Pamela Leavey

Rush Limbaugh, the Viagra popping shock jock of the right wing, push the concept on air today that “Liberals, have hated Israel for the longest time and want to destroy it…”

Not so, says John Kerry who issued a quick smack down on Limbaugh’s ridiculous and outrageous comments:

“Rush Limbaugh’s ignorance and willingness to divide Americans knows no bounds. His latest statement about Israel is beyond offensive to all of us who have fought to protect Israel in the face of enemies committed to its destruction.

Rush Limbaugh needs to pick up a history book instead of a donut. It was a Democratic president who first recognized the State of Israel. It was a Democratic President who first sold Israel defensive weapons. And it was a Democratic President who first sold Israel offensive weapons.

The people of Israel and the Jewish community don’t need Rush Limbaugh to tell them who stands with them, and no one has time for right wing trying to score cheap political points while Israel fights to defend its very existence.”

  1. JK was really being nice to Limp-bah. I doubt he has enough discipline for a donut — more like a dozen per hand!! Great smack, and he deserved it.

    LOL! Poor Limp-bah – I hear too many donuts cause things to malfunction!

  3. That’s our real President talking. Rush got punked out!!!

  4. You’re so mean about poor Rush. This man has huge credibility.

    Here he is, working himself into the ground to save America from liberals…

    Look at how consistent he is. Proving to us all that marriage is for procreation (while being divorced three times, having no kids and taking Viagra…)

    Give the man a break. He’s almost as good as Ken Lay… another Jesus, a Martin Luther King! Do you want to lynch and crucify him as well?

  5. dear All,

    Fairness requires truth.

    The truth is that the Left, for the most part, wants Israel to cut and run, to absorb punishment, to be “restrained” while not demanding anything of the other side.

    There may be some Democrats that stand with Israel but they are labelled “neo-conservatives” and you know what it really means.

  6. Nonsense. We have an example right here of John Kerry, who is definately not a neocon, supporting Israel.

    I have no doubt that Israel vs everyone else will be politicized as a wedge issue, as was done in 2004. Bush gaining from the Jews (although his policy of disengagement in reality horrible), and the Democrats crucified by the progressives for either support or destruction of Israel. Maybe Israel dusted off plans for Rove’s short-sighted election year benefit.

    Israel has not been smart, I think, with a dubious end game, being misunderstood, creating more anti-Israel feelings, and anti-semitism, than she needs. Now was not the time to rebuild a buffer zone, regardless of the sworn destruction of Israel by Syria, Iran, and everyone else.

    The progressive left has many good points about AIPAC and American policy not being good for peace, but often assign total good and bad to all the parties. Palestine was not helped by any of the Arab neighbors, or within Palestine itself.

    We lefties often cry for every hurt bird and wing, without a sense of history or gray.

    Peace has never been easy, but Bush has emboldened all the enemies of Israel to go for the jugular and ignore the US. We are no longer perceived as a powerhouse or voice for diplomacy by the very countries needing to negotiate.

    A major oy vey moment.

  8. Way to Go JK. Gosh I would have loved to have seen video of him saying that.

    JK has always from what I can tell been a strong supporter of Israel and will continue to do so.
