1 No Country For Old Haters  Feb 11, 2015 10:41:21am

It’s clear that she’s a complete wingnut. Maybe some day she’ll realize that pandering to far-right-wing fanatics who hate her for not being pale enough is a mistake.

PARKER: I believe that [Obama’s comment] builds the resolve in the American people that Israel’s values are our values, the core fundamental beliefs of America, our exceptionalism, our national allegiance, our limited role of government, our free markets, and our tradition - This is what we have in common, and this is what secularists don’t like

This statement tells me a few things:

1. Star Parker doesn’t know anything about the government, policies, land, history, or people of Israel. They certainly don’t do “limited government” or “free market” over there. Or American “traditions,” I guarantee if she has been there at all she only saw the touristy Christian spots and English speakers.

2. “Israel” to American right-wingers is really just a fantasy or an “imagined community” (to put it nicely). It’s “America, Part II” with all of the violent tropes and racist assumptions of the 19th century done all over again. Palestinians become “savages” (ie Native Americans/Africans) who must be removed or placed on reservations since they aren’t docile enough to work the plantations.

3. This is why I think so-called “end times” have little to do with American policy toward Israel… it’s about now times and exporting paleo-conservative values to an “ancient” people who are supposed to be receptive to those ideas (hence right-wing rage at liberal Jews)

They should drop to their knees and give thanks to whoever they give thanks to that breathing is an involuntary act. For if they had to think about it they would surely suffocate.

I don’t hate Israel I just hate the way some of their Politicians try and treat us like their lapdogs sometimes.
