Mika Brzezinski's Absurd Attack on Mike Huckabee

Hat tip Breitbart

Mika Brzezinski, who sits with Joe Scarborough on MSNBC's Morning Joe show, is no intellectual heavyweight. She adds very little of substance or interest to any conversation going on around her. So now comes the Mike Huckabee comment about President Obama's Israel policy "delivering Jews to the oven", and  Mika's take on it is that Huckabee, a devoted  Christian, is "un-Christian".

There is little I can add to Breitbart's analysis. Sure, Huckabee used explicit words to describe Obama's betrayal of Israel, but this Iran deal does put Israel in much greater danger of a nuclear incineration. After all, it would only take one nuclear device to "wipe Israel off the map", as the Iranian mullahs have threatened to do many times.

Un-Christian? What is un-Christian about wanting to protect Jews from what would be a second Holocaust-this one at the hands of fanatical Muslims? Would the Christian thing be to do nothing and allow Israel and another 6 million Jews to be "wiped off the map" so that we can live in peace and harmony with Iran and the Arab world-as Obama would like?

I am not saying that Obama wants to see Israel wiped off the map and 6 millions Jews killed, but in my view, he certainly believes Israel to be a most inconvenient country.

I never could figure out what Scarborough and Brzezinski are doing together on that show. Considering the lineup at MSNBC, I figured they would have given her a show of her own long ago, you know, right before Ed Schultz.

 Or after?

It goes without saying that anyone in a prominent anchor or host position is not an intellectual heavyweight. That would disqualify them for the job. Basically, all the networks, including Fox of course, model their ideal anchors and hosts on Vanna White, except they're supposed to be motormouths too.

Huckabee's statement is pure sophistry, and as a potential president he's an untrustworthy sleaze, which is too bad, in 2008 I considered voting for him. But once he sucked up to Ken Copeland for campaign cash, I knew he couldn't be trusted.

Saying that he's "unchristian" is indeed lame. Colbert would have come up with something more pithy.

Many Americans consider Israel a most inconvenient country. They claim the right to pursue their own policies as a sovereign nation, which they have every right to do, then turn around and demand that American taxpayers write them a blank check because "our survival is at stake" and intrude that demand into American politics as if they were a political party in the USA, rather than a sovereign nation that chooses its own policies and pays its own bills.

But must we facilitate their destruction?

No, but we are under no obligation to save them from their own folly.
