“Remember these people are occupied and it’s their land,” Thomas says in the video. “It’s not German and it’s not Polish.”
Asked what Jews in Israel should do, Thomas says “go home.” Asked where that home is, she replies: “Poland. Germany. And America and everywhere else.”
Imagine? Uninformed, hateful, angry and a podium for all of this hate in her job as a columnist.
Here's some background on Thomas: The former United Press International reporter has been a journalist for nearly 60 years, and has covered every president since John F. Kennedy. She was the first female president of the White House Correspondents Association............" Does all of this make her above criticism? Absolutely NOT! But, I feel a little sad for her.
To end a career as long as hers with something like this strikes me as achingly sad and so avoidable.......if only bias hadn't reared its ugly head in her....and out her mouth. It's a good lesson for all journalists to be better informed and to not let their biases show in such a manner.........but it's a very high price to have such a very long career ended in humiliation.
Don't you think so?
