Obama’s Website: Hub of Hate – by Jamie Glazov


Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Pamela Geller, founder, editor and publisher of the popular and award-winning weblog AtlasShrugs.com. She has won acclaim for her interviews with internationally renowned figures, including John Bolton, Geert Wilders, Bat Ye’or, Natan Sharansky, and many others, and has broken numerous important stories — notably the questionable sources of some of the financing of the Obama campaign. Her op-eds have been published in The Washington Times, The American Thinker, Israel National News, Frontpage Magazine, World Net Daily, and New Media Journal, among other publications.

FP: Pamela Geller, welcome back to Frontpage Interview.

You have been observing Obama’s official website. What exactly is going on there?

Geller: During the 2008 presidential election, Barack Obama’s website, Organizing for America, hosted a series of vile anti-American, Jew-hating posts and pieces.

The onslaught was overwhelming, and it included numerous, heinous calls for Jewish genocide and incitement to hatred. And it is happening again, right now, on the official website of the man who supposedly is the leader of the free world, and who has editorial control over the website.

The site was and is policed closely. The site moderators remove material they consider to be “disrespectful to our other users” and to “detract from a welcoming community where all people can engage in positive discourse.” Yet the most disgusting anti-Semitic ravings remained on the site.

FP: Give us some examples.

Geller: In April 2008 a post appeared claiming that “Jews owe Africa and Africans everything they have today because if Africa did not shelter them when they were homeless and starving, they would not be here today.” On Oct. 5, 2009, a post went up on Obama’s website entitled “Nazi Israel . . . Indeed.” It quoted a Princeton professor, Richard Falk, referring to Israel’s “war crimes,” “genocidal tendencies,” “holocaust implications,” and “holocaust-in-the-making.” It spoke about Israel’s “Nazi-like crimes and human rights violation.”

It claimed: “Comparing the present-day Israel with Nazi Germany one discovers that the majority of the Israeli policies are the exact copies of the Nazi policies. Nazi Germany had invaded its European neighbors extending from England to Russia. Israel had also invaded all its neighboring countries; Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. It is also heavily involved in the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. Its tentacles had also reached African countries as far as South Africa, Somalia, Sudan, Angola, and Sierra Leone.”

Continuing the lies and blood libels, the post claims: “Worse than the Nazis Israeli forces used to invade peaceful Palestinian towns, execute men, women and children in cold blood everywhere and anywhere they encounter them, dynamite their homes on top of their residents, and finally demolish the whole town making room for new Israeli colonies.” It charges that Israel pursued “a pre-meditated genocidal plan” against the Palestinian Arabs.

Suffice it to say that this entry passed muster with Obama’s moderators and is clearly acceptable to Obama for America. There appears to be a campaign of sorts to normalize this hatred, as if it’s not so bad. Otherwise, why would this poison be up and stay up at Obama’s website under his name for months?

Other posts do nothing less than deify Obama. A man who says that his “proudest role in the Obama campaign is that of a liason [sic] representative between Senator Obama and the African Unionposted about Obama in messianic terms: “President Obama is the son of Kings and Queens who ruled over the greatest civilizations in human history. The world waited a long time for the arrival of Obama. We did not always know what his name would be or what he would look like but we knew a son of Africa would return to restore light to the world.”

This genius is an adviser to Obama. He is a supporter of the Nation of Islam, and believes Obama is a king descended from Kings and Queens. He is your standard-issue hater of the usual suspects: America, whites, etc.)

The inmates really are running the asylum. This website is Jew-hating, America-hating, white-hating, and you name it. Obama has been hosting it for 18 months, and it is more than disturbing. It’s sick. There are no accidents, Jamie.

FP: Ok, if this isn’t an accident, then why is this anti-Semitism on Obama’s website? What does this say about Obama and his administration?

Why indeed? It’s not as if they are unaware. When Bill Levinson posted quotes of Obama from his own books, his post was taken down within a couple of hours. So allowing this kind of racism to go unchecked now signals a silent complicity.

Obama’s website attracts the disenfranchised, the haters, the anti-semites. It speaks volumes. If you go to the “contact us” screen on the site, you receive this message:

“Thank you for your interest in submitting a comment. The Obama Administration is accepting comments at www.whitehouse.gov.”

There are no contact emails for anyone on the website, just a direct link to the White House.

FP: Why this disposition to Israel and the Jews?

Geller: Obama was raised on it. From Frank Marshall Davis to Khalid Al Mansour, Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan and his ties to the Nation of Islam, Obama has surrounded himself with anti-semites of the worst stripe. This continues now with his anti-Israel advisers, including Robert Malley, Samantha Power, and Zbigniew Brzezinski. This bodes most ill for the Jewish people. This anti-Semitic slant has shown itself in his strident anti-Israel approach to the Middle East “peace” process.

FP: What can be done about this Jew-hate on Obama’s website?

Geller: Good people should speak out. Good people should call out the White House and the Democrats on it. Silence is apathy. Apathy is deadly. If enough people express their outrage and shame, the White House, the Obama camp will be forced to remove this incitement to hate and violence. It is an abomination.

FP: Pamela Geller thank you for joining Frontpage Interview.

    What “cut to the truth answer”? The point of contention is anti-Semitism vs. anti-Zionism. You did not address the issue, but instead chose to call names like a petulent child.

    What does “gag at a gnat but swallow a camel” (which, contrary to your falsehood, you NEVER “pointed out”) have to do with the point of contention?

    Can you debate like an adult?

  • cjkcjk

    Are you that stupid?
    About 99.99 supposed 'Anti-Zionists' are Anti-Semites using the term for cover. Idiots and SCHMUCKS squirm and struggle to say it isn't so ,but alas it is.
    It's okay for Jews to live as Dhimmis or second class citizens, but we ain't gonna put up with those uppity ones.

  • Kaleokualoha

    Really? Is that 99.99% figure speculation, or based on a statistically correct survey? Unless it is scientifically based, with an established margin of error, it is trash. Do members of these groups fall into that .01%:

    International Jewish anti-Zionist Network
    Neturei Karta – Orthodox Jews United Against Zionism
    True Torah Jews Against Zionism

    By definition, unsubstantiated claims of racist motivation constitute “race-baiting.” Speculation is not substantiation. Unless you can substantiate your claims, this applies to you.

    Saying that 99.99% of anti-Zionists are actually anti-Semites is just as foolish as saying that 99.99% of Obama critics are actually racists.

    Intelligent people do not confuse subset criticism with group criticism. Intelligent people do not confuse speculation with verifiable fact.

  • cjkcjk

    INTELLIGENT people are not that naive.

    By the way, what's the name of the organization of retired Holocaust Kapo's?

    I was right at the first, you're a SCHMUCK.

  • cjkcjk

    “Saying that 99.99% of anti-Zionists are actually anti-Semites is just as foolish as saying that 99.99% of Obama critics are actually racists”………..Are we living on the same planet?..I'm done arguing with a fool who loves theory and semantics, but is blind to obvious realities….Are you a college professor???

  • kaleokualoha

    To answer your question: No, I am not a college professor. I probably have a lot more experience than you in dealing with international hostility, because I am a retired Air Force Intelligence Officer, who learned long ago to distinguish between wishful thinking and verifiable fact. Your figures seem to fall into the category of wishful thinking. Now, please answer my questions: ” Do members of these groups fall into that .01%? Also: Is that 99.99% figure speculation, or based on a statistically correct survey?

  • cjkcjk

    You know I thought I was done trying to communicate obvious truth to you, but after you just said that you're a retired Air Force Intelligence Officer….If that's true then It helps explain why our military seems to miss the forest for the trees sometimes.

  • cjkcjk

    Besides everything I'm sorry for calling you any names.

  • harveystelman

    Thank you so much for this information. I always felt Obama was an Anti-Semite, but every bit of information helps. I have written an article about what he plans for Jews.

  • Katy

    Thanks for the article. Pretty well written.

    Hi! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!
