    Olbermann's Macaca

    John Gibson discussed fallout from the Clinton/Wallace interview on his radio program today. Here is an mp3 audio excerpt that will be of interest to readers of this site.

    Within an hour or so we will have a longer version available for your listening pleasure.

    UPDATE: Longer extract (about 10 minutes) can be heard here.

    I posted a comment regarding this last nigt. As Bruce Willis, a.k.a. John Mcclain once said,

    "Welcome to the party pal."

    KO is an anti-Semite. This might be your Macaca moment Keith.
    bullied and sandbagged by a monkey posing as a newscaster.
    Chris Wallace (b. October 12, 1947) is a Jewish American journalist currently working for Fox News. He is the host of Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. Wallace has been with Fox News since 2003.

    Palestinian television used the occasion of the Muslim month of Ramadan to broadcast programming with a distinctly anti-Jewish theme, including a sermon in which Jews were called "cursed ? the brothers of monkeys and pigs," reports Palestinian Media Watch.
    The sermon, delivered last Friday by Dr. Mustafa Najem, argued that attacking Jews is part of the destiny of Muslims and Arabs. [...]
    "Praise be to Allah, who has cursed [the Jews], the brothers of monkeys and pigs, with a stream of curses that will continue until the Resurrection of the dead," Najem declared. "He has warned us against their evil and their arrogance, and has said: 'You will find that the most brazen among mankind, with hatred toward the believers, are the Jews and the idolaters.' [Koran, 81,5].

    In one recent video, a Palestinian about to blow himself up among Jewish civilians is depicted reciting a prayer hoping for "paradise."

    "Angels of mercy, escort our souls to Heaven after we fulfill this duty of crushing the descendents of monkeys and pigs. Dear father and mother, blessings of honor and respect to you, while you escort me to the Maidens of Paradise as a Martyr," states the soon-to-be suicide bomber.

    What the Sheik Really Said About Jews, Monkeys and Swine
    Ben Birnbaum

    Late last year, the New York Times reported the following:

    ?A statement on a Web site by a Muslim cleric from Vancouver calling Jews ?the brothers of monkeys and swine? was perceived as particularly disturbing [by Canadian authorities]. The cleric, Sheik Younus Kathrada, of the Daral-Madinah Islamic Society, posted a clarification on his website this week, saying that his comments had been taken out of context.? MSNBC.htm

    Countdown with Keith Olbermann
    July 28, 2006

    Dear Mr. Olbermann,

    We are deeply dismayed by your ongoing use of the Nazi "Sieg Heil" salute, both on your program and in public appearances -- including the recent Television Critics Association press tour -- while holding up a mask of Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly.

    While we understand that your aim is to entertain your audience by taking pot shots at Mr. O'Reilly, your repeated use of the Nazi salute has resulted in many complaints from our constituents, including Holocaust survivors and their families who find the use of this gesture offensive and repugnant in any context.

    The Nazi salute is more than just a remnant of history, but serves as a calling card for modern-day neo-Nazis and white supremacists. We believe that the use of gestures and imagery associated with the Nazis ? even in jest ? only serves to trivialize the Holocaust and denigrate the memory of the six million Jews and others who died as a result of Hitler's Final Solution.

    As a respected and well-known media personality, your actions have consequences and can set a standard for others to emulate. We are especially concerned that young people viewing your program might take their cues from your free use of the "Sieg Heil" salute.

    In light of these concerns, we hope that you will reconsider your use of the Nazi salute in the future.

    Flash!: Olbermann Mocks O'Reilly
    By Ben Grossman -- Broadcasting & Cable, 7/22/2006 1:16:00 PM
    MSNBC?s Keith Olbermann used a Saturday morning breakfast session at the Television Critics Association press tour to fire yet another shot at Fox News Channel?s Bill O?Reilly, holding up an O?Reilly mask while raising his right arm in a Nazi salute to mock his on-air rival.

    No humor in Nazi jokes
    The Virginian-Pilot
    ? July 27, 2006
    Woody Allen once said, ?I can?t listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.?
    Pretty funny guy, that Woody Allen. He?s one of the few comedians who could crack a Nazi joke and get a laugh, not a wince. Mel Brooks is another. (?Springtime for Hitler,? anyone?)
    Keith Olbermann , take note.
    Olbermann, the MSNBC host, has a running feud with Fox News? Bill O?Reilly . It?s pretty funny. The routine goes like this: O?Reilly says something outrageous, Olbermann lampoons him, then O?Reilly overreacts. It never fails, and O?Reilly never learns.

    Recently, Olbermann appeared at a meeting of the Television Critics Association. He whipped out a Bill O?Reilly mask and gave a Nazi salute.
    Not funny.

    How could Keith Olbermann be anti-semitic when he is Jewish himself?

    Jayden, he's not Jewish. He has said that himself.

    Olby is definitely unbalanced and unfair.

    He's German but not Jewish.

    Yet another "seig heil" moment for that anti-semitic glutton for gluten, the runny at both ends "celiac sufferer" ---- ORANGE-BOY!!!!

    actually, for some reason, I have the impression the name is Dutch. I know nn suggests German but I think it is not actually. Anyone know for sure?

    He has said on air that he is kind of Heinz 57 - German, Russian and French primarily.

    He's a kraut. This from his original MSNBC show "The Big Show" in August 1998.

    As for looking like a Nazi, recall this from MSNBC’s Keith Olbermnann on August 18, 1998:

    "Can Ken Starr ignore the apparent breadth of the sympathetic response to the President’s speech? Facially, it finally dawned on me that the person Ken Starr has reminded me of facially all this time was Heinrich Himmler, including the glasses. If he now pursues the President of the United States, who, however flawed his apology was, came out and invoked God, family, his daughter, a political conspiracy and everything but the kitchen sink, would not there be some sort of comparison to a persecutor as opposed to a prosecutor for Mr. Starr?"

    The next night he apologized, sort of, but maintained his basic assertion of how Starr reminded him of Himmler:
    "We got a number of calls from people who were offended by that remark, who thought I was comparing Starr to Himmler and insulting Starr, or who thought I was comparing Starr to Himmler and demeaning the terrible importance of the Holocaust. And to those people who were offended I sincerely and humbly apologize. I meant only what I said. Facially, the two men look vaguely alike. But I am primarily of German descent, so I carry with me an inherited shame and guilt about this. So despite the innocence of the intent of my remark there, I should have been much more sensitive about invoking that name in this context and for having not been so, I am very sorry. Still ahead for us tonight: did Olbermann’s apology go far enough? We’ll have the latest poll numbers on that."

    Excellent. Thanks for clearing that up.

    It does seem that anti-semitism has become this years Che Guevara T-Shirt, the new callsign of the unhinged leftists. It's truly unfortunate that there are those who so despise their own government that they would be willing to take the side of anti-semites in a shooting war. What happened to "Never again?".

    don't you think it is funny that the leftards are always calling conservatives "nazi" yet the progressive liberal morons truly have more in common with nazis than anybody. now they are truly becoming ant-semitic.
    but liberals don't need a reason to hate. Remember the racist cartoons and comments about Condi Rice? But liberals think that they can do anything and say anything in defense of their "cause" . That is why I always say that hypocrisy is the one true liberal dogma and ideology.
    Olberloon is a perfect example.

    I love it that Gibson didn't say Olbyfool's name. It drives him nuts as evidenced by his rants about it on his show recently. Poor, poor Kernicterus Man, nobody wants to play with him.....he rants, name calls, insults and people don't take the bait. Loser, thy name is Olbyboy!

    Thank God Fox has finally figured out the best way to drive him even crazier than he already is, is to ignore him.

    I'd just consider for a moment, the case of Malm�dy and Bill O'Reilly. Here's the initial exchange:

    Clark: And let me explain something. You go all the way up the chain of command ...

    O'Reilly: General! You need to look at the Malmedy massacre in World War Two, and the 82nd Airborne who did it!

    So given that Mr. O'Reilly has insulted the the reputation of the 82nd Airborne and suggested that a Nazi Atrocity was in fact committed by Americans, and to this point has not apologized for that slander, in my opinion makes satirizing O'Reilly as a Nazi himself understandable.
