Schlussel responds to Media Matters, Olbermann: Vegans, transsexuals, and "fake Holocaust survivors," oh my

A version of this item originally was posted on Media Matters for America.

In an April 18 weblog entry, right-wing pundit Debbie Schlussel responded to a Media Matters for America item that highlighted her "speculat[ion]" in an April 16 post (since removed) that Cho Seung-Hui, identified as the Virginia Tech gunman, might have been a "Paki" Muslim and part of "a coordinated terrorist attack." As Media Matters pointed out, "Paki" is a disparaging term for a person of Pakistani descent. Schlussel attacked Media Matters, writing: "Media Matters bragged to the Wall Street Journal that it was responsible for taking down Don Imus. I suppose now that Don Imus is gone, they've assigned the vegan lesbian transsexual 'interspecies erotica' devotee they had monitoring the Imus show to monitor my site." She also attacked "nutty, angry" MSNBC host Keith Olbermann, who awarded Schlussel third place in his April 17 "Worst Person in the World" segment for her "Paki" statement. In addition, Schlussel falsely claimed that billionaire philanthropist George Soros "is the funder of Media Matters."

Schlussel went on to attack Soros at length, writing that "the Jewish Soros is a fake Holocaust survivor, who--instead of 'surviving' the Holocuast [sic] --helped the Nazis perpetrate it" and that "Soros bragged on CBS' '60 Minutes' of helping his adopted father round up Jews to send them to their deaths at the camps and confiscate their property." Schlussel added: "Yes, this war criminal and proud Jewish Nazi is the money bags behind America's new self-anointed 'Media Watchdog.' " The only source Schlussel offered for these claims was David Horowitz and Richard Poe's thoroughly discredited book, The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton and Sixties Radicals Seized Control of the Democratic Party (Nelson Current, 2006). As Media Matters has noted, several conservative media figures have distorted Soros' experience as a 14-year-old boy in Nazi-controlled Hungary to suggest that he collaborated with the Nazis.

Schlussel went on to reprise three of her comments highlighted by Media Matters and Colorado Media Matters: her false statement on the June 14, 2006, edition of MSNBC's Scarborough Country that "there wasn't a peep" from Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) when Suha Arafat, wife of former Palestinian National Authority president Yasir Arafat, stated that Israelis "poison Palestinian water and air and cause cancer for them"; her argument in a December 18, 2006, column that Sen. Barack Obama's (D-IL) "loyalties" must be called into question because his middle name is Hussein, his estranged father was of Muslim descent, and he has shown interest in his father's Kenyan heritage; and her claim during the February 16 broadcast of 630 KHOW-AM's The Caplis & Silverman Show that "[e]ven though some [Muslims] are nice and some may seem moderate, everybody is part of a religion where the dominant spokespeople ... are extremists who support terrorism."

From Schlussel's April 18 post:

Yesterday, Keith Olbermann--MSNBC resident uber-left crank and bizarro--picked me for the bronze for his daily "Worst Person in the World Award." Damn--Only bronze?

Yes, with all the terrorists, murderers, and assorted other malefactors in the world, I am the third worst person in the world. As usual, the nutty, angry Olby's got his priorities and sense of proportion straight. Well, at least, his puppet masters at the aprocryphally [sic] named, far-left "Media Matter for America" have their priorities straight. When they say jump, Olbermann asks "how low." (And FYI, in case you haven't heard, there are all kinds of rumors that Olbermann stalked then-WNBA player Rebecca Lobo, when she was no longer interested in him. Only a girlie-man would stalk a manly-girl.)

Media Matters bragged to the Wall Street Journal that it was responsible for taking down Don Imus. I suppose now that Don Imus is gone, they've assigned the vegan lesbian transsexual "interspecies erotica" devotee they had monitoring the Imus show to monitor my site.

For like the fourth time or so in the last year, yesterday, Media Matter decided to send out a mass conniption, er . . . e-mail attacking me. I'm quadruply honored. More on that later.

But first, a little note on who's behind Media Matters. It's run by David Brock--you know, the "journalist," who wrote a whole book attacking the Clintons and exposing Clintonesque free love, courtesy of the Arkansas State Troopers. Then, he said he lied and made the whole thing up. Hmmm . . . Interesting that this lying media member is now the self-anointed media watchdog. Hey, David Brock, you can't be a Pitbull, when you've always been a bitch. The same bitch tried to join my "friends" list at my Facebook account. (FYI, he's a close friend of pseudo-conservative Laura Ingraham. You can tell a lot about people by the company they keep.)

Then, there is the funder of Media Matters, billionaire George Soros. As my friend David Horowitz has painstakingly detailed in his book, "The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Sixties Radicals Seized Control of the Democratic Party," the Jewish Soros is a fake Holocaust survivor, who--instead of "surviving" the Holocuast--helped the Nazis perpetrate it.

Horowitz details how Soros bragged on CBS' "60 Minutes" of helping his adopted father round up Jews to send them to their deaths at the camps and confiscate their property. Before that, he enjoyed his job as a "courier" delivering notices to Jews instructing them to pack up food for a two-day retreat, which was really their round-up for the death camps. He found this "exhilarating."

Yes, this war criminal and proud Jewish Nazi is the money bags behind America's new self-anointed "Media Watchdog."

The first time they attacked me, the folks at Media Matters for attacking Hillary Clinton for doing nothing while Suha Arafat, then the Palestinian first "lady" (I'd call her the Palestinian first artifically[sic]-inseminated) spouted off about how Jews infect Palestinians with cancer. The nerve of me to mention one of future Prez Rodham Cankles' most memorable moments.

Then, they got upset when I pointed out B. Hussein Obama's Muslim background and loyalties--all of which have since been borne out in spades. Gee, the chutzpah of someone to point out the loyalties of a man who wants to be President to the Religion of the 19 Hijackers. And since I wrote the piece in question, more and more and more and more has come out about Obama's Muslim background, all of which he keeps trying to cover up.

Then, the Media Matters people got upset that I gave an interview to a Colorado radio station attacking the media for covering up the Muslim background of the Trolley Square terrorist, who murdered several people, execution-style, while they were picking out Valentine's Day cards at a Salt Lake City mall. How dare I point out the Muslim attacks on America. Why, everyone knows the Samoans and Fijians committed 9/11. They're the real security threat to America. Just ask Vijay Singh (he's a native Fijian, and he's always swinging these long dangerous metal sticks at such nice manicured lawns).

And a-day-and-a-half after I speculated who the VTU massacre perpetrator might be--a full day after I corrected the info with updated links and new reports that it was a South Korean student, Media Matters was on my case about that, too. And, in fact, they claimed I reported that the shooter was a Chinese national on a student visa. Uh, no, I didn't report that--I linked to a Chicago Sun-Times report which reported that. Did Media Matters mention that or condemn the Sun-Times or any of the many mainstream media outlets that picked up on that report? Of course, not. It wouldn't fit into their agenda of sliming conservatives.

And, thus, Olby got his latest Reichstag marching orders from "former" Nazi George Soros' regime. Heil Soros!

From the April 17 edition of MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann:

OLBERMANN: The bronze to right-wing columnist Debbie Schlussel. Between her references to quote, "Hoprah Winfrey," unquote, she first wrote yesterday that authorities did not immediately identify the shooter at Virginia Tech, so he might have been a, quote, "Paki," and part of a coordinated terrorist attack by Muslims. She later updated this to conclude that he was a Chinese national, then a South Korean national, quote, "yet another reason to stop letting in so many foreign students." The shooter, of course, had been a resident alien who had been here since he was 8 and a half years old.
