Michael Scheuer's Rants


Michael Scheuer's years as a CIA officer seem to have gained him a pass from some members of the media who would otherwise shun him for the anti-Jewish and anti-Israel bigotry he openly espouses. Editors, bookers and producers should take a look at Scheuer's own blog called where he churns out hate-filled commentary like this, which attracts like-minded posts from readers:

Obama is completely owned by the Israelis, just as his predecessors were. U.S. taxpayers continue to see their money channeled to the war-wanting Israeli theocracy, even as the number of jobless and homeless increase domestically. Our soldier-children are still on the hook to die for Israel — without a declaration of war — if Netanyahu divines that his holy book tells him that Israel’s God-given deed for all of Palestine needs protecting by attacking Iran. (NB: Odd isn’t it, how Washington routinely uses the separation-of-church-and-state tenet to attack U.S. Christians, but believes it is inapplicable when the U.S. federal government financially supports or militarily defends overseas theocracies like Israel and Saudi Arabia?)

Earlier this year, Scheuer did get in hot water with an appearance on C-SPAN's Washignton Journal that caught the attention not only of CAMERA but of commentator Jeffrey Goldberg who wrote: "Words fail. Scheuer is a Jew-hating crank."

The blogosphere may be a ready platform for racists to spew and spread their message, but it's also obviously a way for responsible outlets to check out who they're considering as guest speakers.

How is Scheuer a "Jew hating crank"? Attacking U.S. aid to Israel doesn't please Goldberg - so he resorts to name-calling.
