RRD:I posted on this before here:
Democratic staffer puts on Jewish version of a minstrel show. – fightingstatism
Wasserman Schultz stands by aide over Facebook flap | JTA – Jewish & Israel News
…“She was 20 when she posted that picture,” Wasserman Schultz said in response to a reporter’s question at a Florida campaign event. “I spoke to my own children and gave that unfortunate posting as an example of how, no matter what you think is funny among your friends, nothing on social media is private.”
…..”After her appointment to the new role of Jewish outreach liaison for the DNC was announced, the conservative Washington Free Beacon unearthed the Facebook photos of Gilbert jokingly referring to herself and her friends using the terms “Jewbags” and the “Jew cash -money team.”
Gilbert apologized last week through a Twitter post.
“I apologize for any harm postings on my Facebook page made years ago may have caused anyone. I meant no offense,” she wrote.
“I’ve known Dani Gilbert since she was 15 years old,” Wasserman Schultz said. “She’s a Yale graduate, a graduate of the London School of Economics, she has been my foreign policy aide for almost three years. And she’s incredibly poised, intelligent and that is not reflective of her maturity today.”
…..”DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse defended Gilbert’s credentials in a statement sent to the news source BuzzFeed. In the statement, Woodhouse said that “no smear driven by the right-wing noise machine is going to impact her status as a trusted member of this team.”…
RRD:Let us parse this:
“I spoke to my own children and gave that unfortunate posting as an example of how, no matter what you think is funny among your friends, nothing on social media is private.”
So Wasserman-Schultz told them that the reason that they should not debase themselves and their fellow jews with the terms “Jewbags”,and “Jew Money Team”,(phrases that sound like they were lifted from the Nazis),is because they might get caught?!?!
I don’t claim to know what went on in Gilbert’s mind when she posted this grotesque smear against herself,me,and my family members and her own family members.I hope that her apology is sincere.However Wasserman-Schultz’s statement is even more disturbing in some ways.Did she say anything else to her children?Anything about how self-hating statements by jews are used by anti-semites in their propoganda?
Meanwhile,at the same time that Gilbert is apologizing,and Wasserman-Schultz is saying Gilbert should be forgiven,(and telling her children of the dangers of being caught),we have the obscene spectacle of this Woodhouse creature saying that “no smear driven by the right-wing noise machine is going to impact her status as a trusted member of this team.”…
So,a Jewish Democratic Staffer debases herself,her friends,and all other jews with this vile term,whether through ignorance,drunkness,self-hatred,whatever….it was SHE who posted this,and the villians are the “right wing noise machine” who have “smeared” her by posting the truth,even though the girl herself and her boss both acknowledge this was wrong?
This statement by Woodhouse is a example of the depraved entitlement mentality of some Democrats:How dare you criticize us,even if the criticism is justified.How dare you speak the truth about us.Reality is whatever we say it is,we are above you,we can do whatever we want,say whatever we want,and no one should dare criticize us.Meanwhile,we will fling any libel,any slander we wish at you:Nazis,Klansmen,Racist,Terrorist,Teabagger,and you are to lap it all up and thank us for being “courageous dissenters”.
I wonder if this clown grasps the fact that,no it really isn’t ”just” the “right-wing noise machine” that is outraged by this.
I do not blame either Wasserman-Schultz or Gilbert for Woodhouse’s statement.But if anyone deserves to be fired,it is him.
