This week, a lot of you all heard about Rick Sanchez being canned from CNN for calling Jon Stewart a bigot, and saying Jews owned CNN and all the major media companies. Well, this became a topic of discussion on The View this week, Barbara spoke up and said “good for CNN, they fired him and they should have.” This prompted the sea-cow Behar to mutter “I wonder if Fox [News] would have fired him?” Sherri managed to get a brief comment in, but Elisabeth can’t let it go and she asked Joy “what do you mean?” Joy sheepishly replies “I’m just wondering what another network would have done.”
Uh-huh, that’s what I thought Joy. Even some comments and assertions you make are just too much for most folks, and Elisabeth called you out on this one. Would have been a tough argument to make that you think Fox News would have kept an anti-Semite on board. Good job, ‘Lisabeth!
Obviously after yesterday’s horrific murder of the guard at the Holocaust Museum, all the media’s attention was focused on James Von Brunn. But his violence visited upon others was not the only of the recent past. There have been two others, including that of abortion Dr. George Tiller and Army Pvt. William Long at the Army Recruiting Station in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Today Beck had Dr. Keith Ablow, forensic psychiatrist, on to explain the hate that is being felt in the world today – specifically towards Jews. Also take into consideration this past weekend’s interview with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s former Pastor, and his racist rant in the Q&A:
“Them Jews ain’t going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter that he’ll talk to me in five years when he’s a lame duck, or in eight years when he’s out of office.”
So, Dr. Ablow explains who’s more dangerous. Von Brunn or Dr. Wright? You might be surprised.
This is a flashback of a beautiful and touching story from 2007. You see, this is about a lovely woman named Irena Sendler. Glenn Beck discovered her story, and found her worthy of a special recognition on his show at that time.
To be able to enter the Warsaw Ghetto legally, Irena managed to be issued a pass from Warsaw’s Epidemic Control Department and she visited the Ghetto daily, reestablished contacts and brought food, medicines and clothing. But 5,000 people were dying a month from starvation and disease in the Ghetto, and she decided to help the Jewish children to get out. For Irena Sendler, a young mother herself, persuading parents to part with their children was in itself a horrendous task. Finding families willing to shelter the children, and thereby willing to risk their life if the Nazis ever found out, was also not easy.
Irena Sendler, who wore a star armband as a sign of her solidarity to Jews, began smuggling children out in an ambulance. She recruited at least one person from each of the ten centers of the Social Welfare Department. With their help, she issued hundreds of false documents with forged signatures. Irena Sendler successfully smuggled almost 2,500 Jewish children to safety and gave them temporary new identities.
