Terrorist sympathizer and enabler (up)Chuck Hagel is soowey he called Jews names.
Boo. Hoo. Schumer says Hagel almost cried
Schumer said he spent 90 minutes asking Hagel questions — including about a “nuclear Iran” — and “he answered them very well.”
“He struck me as sincere, and you know, you have to be sitting there at the meeting obviously, but I also told him when he used the word Jewish lobby what it meant to Jewish people,” he added.
“And I told him what a double standard is. That Jewish people throughout the centuries have suffered a double standard. Everyone could be a farmer except Jewish people. Everyone could live in Moscow except Jewish people. I said when everyone else can lobby but all of a sudden when those of us who are pro-Israel lobby, it’s a negative, that’s a double standard. And I’m sure you didn’t mean it, but it harkens to the old days.
“And he really, you know, he almost had tears in his eyes when he understood. So I believe he will be good.”
A good Dhimmicrat. There’s a lot more against Hagel than “Jewish lobby”, he has claimed that Zionists control the State Dept and Congress.
Schumer noted that there is “not a major Jewish organization against” Hagel.
On Thursday, Contentions called on some of the major Jewish organizations that have been conspicuous by their absence from the debate about Hagel to finally break their silence on the issue and to demand an explanation about the 2007 speech given at Rutgers University during which Hagel is alleged to have made the crack about the Israelis and the State Department. Last night, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported that both the Anti-Defamation League and the American Jewish Committee have made such statements. The ADL told JTA Hagel needed to explain the remark but the American Jewish Committee went farther in saying that “further Senate deliberation is called for before any final vote is taken.”
“The main fight on Hagel is coming from the neocons, who you know well. And they resent Hagel’s apostasy on Iraq. You may remember — the neocons helped push Iraq — and Hagel was one of the first Republicans to say Iraq wasn’t working. And he was right. But that’s where it’s coming from.
Actually the opposition is coming from people that don’t like his support for Hamas and Islamist regimes. I also seem to recall that a lot of conservatives warned that the Iraq war wasn’t planned right before Hagel and most of the dems approved it.
“So I have no qualms about my position,” Schumer added. “And as you can see now, Sens. McCain and Graham and Alexander have said they may not vote for him, but they’ll let the vote come forward.”
