Back during the 2008 Barack Obama campaign for President, the Democratic nominee got rid of campaign adviser Samantha Power after she called Hillary Clinton “a monster,” and a 2002 video, below, came to light, in which she called for the U.S. to invade Israel. But everyone knew that she was still advising Obama behind the scenes and has been to date.
And, today, Obama made that fact official by leaking to the media that Power is his choice for new U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, as he moves Susan Rice to National Security Adviser (hey, we’ve already had one incompetent Rice as NSA Adviser, so why not another?).
What is even more offensive, though, in the video and gets less play is Power’s anti-Semitic comment about Jews being too rich and politically powerful in the United States. She talks about how her suggestion for invading Israel and spending U.S. money on bolstering a Palestinian State (which seems to be the only state she wants in what is Israel) will “alienat[e] a domestic constituency of [laugh, laugh, giggle, giggle] tremendous political and financial import.”
She’s clearly referring to Jews and saying they are too rich and too powerful. I want to know, as a Jewish-American so stereotyped by her where my tremendous riches and power are and why, if my riches and power are so great, an anti-Israel Prez–who nominates scum like her–got elected.
By the way, if you look at Eva Braun’s, er . . . Samantha Power’s pics online, she seems like an egomaniac who fancies herself a supermodel of some sort. Sadly, we have to take this Jew-hater seriously.
There are enough far-left, pan-Muslim Israel haters in her native Ireland (where she grew up). Why must we have this crappy import, Ms. Power, pretending to represent America in the U.N.?
