The media coverage of the insensitive/bigoted things Donald Trump has said is a perfectly legitimate line of reporting. What isn’t legitimate is they are ignoring Hillary Clinton’s record of saying things that could be considered as anti-Semitic. Perhaps the most blatant example was reported in July of 2000 in a book by Jerry Oppenheimer, the presumptive Democratic Party nominee called her then-future husband’s campaign manager a “f**king Jew b*stard (the asterisks were added by me).
In 1974, Bubba lost an election for the US House of Representatives from Arkansas. According to the former campaign manager Paul Fray, After the defeat, she turned to her then boyfriend’s campaign manager Paul Fray and called him a “”f**king Jew b*stard.”
Hillary denies that she ever said any such thing. Bill Clinton backs up her version. However, Fray, his wife and a campaign worker who was just outside the room, have all attested to the fact that she did indeed use that insult. Said Fray:
Mrs Fray said that her husband’s recollection of the meeting, which lasted about an hour, was accurate. Mr McDonald said: “I don’t know what provoked it or what. I just remember that one little comment.”
Paul Fray was given a lie-detector test by the NY Post at the time ad cleared the polygraph with flying colors “There’s no doubt in my mind that Mr. Fray is truthful,” concluded state-licensed Arkansas polygrapher Jeff Hubanks, who gave the three-hour test.
Fray, who was Bill Clinton’s campaign manager in 1974, charged in a book published last month that Mrs. Clinton erupted in anger during a knock-down, drag-out election night meeting in a room at the Fayetteville, Ark., campaign headquarters attended by him, his wife, Mary Lee, and the Clintons, who were not yet married.
Another campaign worker, Neil McDonald, stood outside the door and has confirmed Fray’s account.
This is not the first time had been accused of anti-Semitism. On page 50 of the book American Evita the author relates a 1973 anti-Semitic incident where she Hillary refused to enter a home that a menorah on its door.
It was during this trip to his home state that Bill took Hillary to meet a politically well-connected friend. When they drove up to the house, Bill and Hillary noticed that a menorah-the seven branched Hebrew candelabrum (not to be confused with the more common and subtler mezuzah)-has been affixed to the front door.
“My daddy was half Jewish,” explained Bill’s friend. “One day when he came to visit, my daddy placed the menorah on my door because he wanted me to be proud that we were part Jewish. And I wasn’t about to say no to my daddy.”
To his astonishment, as soon as Hillary saw the menorah, she refused to get out of the car. “Bill walked up to me and said that she was hot and tired, but later he explained the real reason.” According to the friend and another eyewitness, Bill said, “I’m sorry, but Hillary’s really tight with the people in the PLO in New York. They’re friends of hers, and she just doesn’t feel right about the menorah.”
In 2011 speaking at the at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy part of the liberal Brookings Institute, Clinton trashed Orthodox Jewry by expressing concern for Jewish State’s social climate in the wake of limitations regarding female singing in the IDF and gender segregation on public transportation. Both were accommodations made to the Orthodox communities in Israel and Hillary’s complaints were based on false information.
Clinton referred to the decision of some IDF soldiers to leave an event where female soldiers were singing; she said it reminded her of the situation in Iran. It did? Wow! In Iran the women would have been lashed or executed. In Israel they were allowed to sing, and the people who felt it was against their religious beliefs were allowed to walk out. That’s it! Most senior officers in the IDF supported the women’s right to sing. That’s called religious freedom.
Clinton also spoke of her shock that some Jerusalem buses had assigned separate seating areas for women. “It’s reminiscent of Rosa Parks,” she said, taking the typical progressive position that faith should not matter outside a place of worship. Again in this case Hillary trashed an accommodation for Orthodox Jewish practice without understanding it’s extent. It is not all buses it is only certain buses run by privately owned lines originating/terminating in certain Orthodox neighborhoods and per the Israeli Supreme Court the separate seating was voluntary. That’s called religious freedom.
Is Hillary Clinton an anti-Semite? You decide. But the fact that this story hasn’t been brought up by the MSM is an example of their one-sided coverage.
