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

hub

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?

Geller:
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.

    Our "alleged" President must know about this website and the comments that are there. Are the fools who voted for this illegal alien waking up and seeing who they really voted for? Look at his czar appointments, all left wing radicals who hate America and want to destroy this country while assisting the Muslims. Is this treason? Impeachment anyone?

  • grossecaisse

    Islam is degenerate and vile.

  • http://www.imataxpayertoo.wordpress.com/ Kathy

    On October 5, I wrote a post about the Richard Falk article on my blog. I linked to his post on the Organizing For America site. It was scrubbed very quickly. But I managed to find the cached page and took a snapshot of it for posterity, just so people wouldn't think I was making it up. My blog is at http://imataxpayertoo.wordpress.com. Scroll down to October 5 and October 8.

  • Wayne

    If President Obama is running an anti-Semitic or Jew-hating blog or website from the White House does this alienate the likes of Rahm Emanual or David Axelrod? Do they just take a hankie out of their pockets, wipe their faces and carry on with business as usual?

    Personally, I find both Emanual and Axelrod as despicable as Obama.

  • antifascist18

    Obama is what he always has been – a Jew-baiting, gutless little coward who hates America and Jews. Think about the hate America thing for a moment. He knew how to sit in a damn pew for 20 years with a Nazi of Color screeching filth, lies, and sheer hate, but never had the cojones or the pride of a Colin Powell in serving in our country's military.

    Bonzo Obama's a piece of crap. That's all.

  • antifascist18

    Emanuel and Axelrod are no different than the Karl Marxses of the world whom they're descendant from. Or the numerous self-haters that the Jewish people, even after Hitler, have had to contend with.

    If our society wasn't so sick, Jews would be outraged at these bastards and at those in J Street who wish to destroy Israel, but hey, 78 percent of brain-dead morons voted for the Iranian nuclear bombing of Tel-Aviv, and still most of them say its hope and change.

  • Mach1Duck

    What did one expect after hearing that Captain Zero sat in the Rev. Wrights hate spewing sermons for 20 years. And, oh yes, he was married by the right thinking reverend.

  • talis4

    You sir, are a blithering idiot. Have you ever checked out the posts on the fox and your own web site. The vitriolic racism is mind boggling. I would expect nothing less from right wing morons (rwm).
    By the way, here are some facts (just to irritate ya). O yeah, I forgot you're a rwm. Let me define “fact” for you (since it is essentially unknown amongst the right wing and the retardlican fascist party).
    fact - /fækt/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [fakt] Show IPA
    See images of fact
    –noun 1. something that actually exists; reality; truth:

    nine of the 15 cities with the highest rate of violent crimes are south of the mason dixon line (that is right wing moron country). These include Charlotte, NC; Orlando, Fl; Miami, Fl; New Orleans, La, and Charleston, SC.-

    The retardlican party and the rest of the right wing morons in this country are unpatriotic, American hating, freedom hating fascists. They should move to afghanistan and join the taliban. They'd fit right in.

  • Logicon

    I imagine Obama will get his recruits from this website for his personal army. There seem to be no checks and balances where Obama is concerned.

  • Eu Wei Choi

    Pamela Geller is doing an AWESOME job of bringing to public light that which the CORRUPTED Main Stream Media refuses to see and expose.
    Not only are the Islamist enabling Left pushing the America-Hating/Jew-Hating prevalent on THAT site, but they've “Community Organized” an Instrument to undermine the U.S. -Israel Relationship and “Strategic Alliance” of democratic nations, the Evil Intentioned “Anti-Aipac” named “J Street”.
    The HATE posts Pamela brings to light on the Obama Web site go hand in glove with the activities of “J Street” and its “Community Organizer”(oops, he calls himself “Executive Director”),Jeremy Ben-Ami,whose very last name(“Son of My People” in Hebrew) is a cruel and deceitful LIE.
    The Democratic Party has been HIJACKED by the Left over a 41 year period(since 1968 ,thru among other strategies, forcing Rules Changes favoring them and their tactics),starting with McGovern in 1972 and has always ,despite UNDESERVED Jewish-American support, been sheltering to Anti-Semites and other America-Hating Extremists(The Left and Nazis such as Lyndon LaRouche) .
    The time is NOW for people who have voted” Democratic” out of rote or misplaced loyalty to a party name,”Democratic”,to VOTE AGAINST the Party that is the Enabling Tool of Hatemongers and those who seek to “Fundamentally Change”this Great Nation.

  • Carterthewriter

    The Democrats have taken advantage of the Republican Party ever since they gained control of the legislative branch of our government. The Repubkicans fail to explain to the American people why they sat idly by while many edicts formulated in Congress enhanced the decline of free enterprise to the point that the Democrats could transform this nation into a communistic state..
    Once the old Russians tore down the Berlin Wall, they decided to change their tatics by enlisting dissidents to infiltrate our government offices. They found that was possible because most Americans were too busy trying to enjoy life and didn't pay attention to one of the most important aspects this country had to offer–freedom.

  • USMCSniper

    That is what Obama is all about under the tutelage of his Master, Reverend Jerimiah Wright – “Hating Whitey and Other Progressive Causes”

  • Mark

    Methinks Geller is confusing anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism. Perhaps she doesn't know the difference. If anti-Semitism is a form of racism, then Geller is race-baiting (playing the race card).

  • trodaball

    The Marxist-Islamic death-alliance is so easy to see everywhere you look it has to wake up all but the worst kool-aid drinkers….I hope….I pray.

  • clark81

    The comments section here is every bit as hateful and intolerant as anything that the article alleges to have been posted to Obama's site. The only difference is that hate-filled bile is the norm here, not the exception.

  • EuWei Choi

    TALIS4 IS TRYING TO RACE BAIT when he BLAMES Republicans for Charlotte,Orlando,New Orleans,and Charleston..
    He's HOPING to draw a comment HE CAN TWIST into “Race”.
    Talis4 SURELY Knows those Cities,while located in “Republican”states,are Democratic Fortresses.
    NOTHING TO TWIST ” RACIAL” THERE!
    Naturally an ELITIST Lefty would never figure ONE OF US could CONNECT THOSE DOTS.

  • catdogsadie

    well he is not smart i am not a jew but i think a jew would do a better job then him

  • WhoBeen

    Great Interview! …by both the interviewer and interviewee! Keep up the excellent work.

    ps: with each post I highly recommend a reminder that we need to empty the House in 2010…got to keep it a high priority.

  • WhoBeen

    Both! Treason and impeach the usurper! Now !!!

  • CowboyUp

    Atlanta's not number 1? Dang.

    Remind us simpletons again, who is it that d*mns America and burns our flag?

    If we're such morons, why is it the left needs us but we don't need the left? Why is it we can take care of ourselves and our families, make our own decisions and live with the consequences, but the left can't?

    Why did you waste your time making such a ridiculous post? America is starting to wise up to the left's BS, I can understand why that would be frustrating and cause yall to lash out blindly.

  • taylormw

    Clark, you're a joke.

  • ROBERTAC20

    I have tried to go to “WHITEHOUSE.COM” recently and you can not post to it any more. You get an “under Maintenance”. I also went to “organizing for America” but could not find the stuff talked about or type of slanderous talk. I do believe this is on there but would someone explain to me how it is to be found?

  • KatherineSands

    Roberta, they have scrubbed the referenced article from Organizing For America. If you go to my blog….I wrote about this article on October 5. After hearing on October 8 that it had been scrubbed, I managed to locate the cached page and took a picture of it so that people would know it had really been there. Here's the link to my blog http://www.imataxpayertoo.wordpress.com and the link to the IsraelNews.com is there that has the post abbreviated. I had a hard drive crash after downloading the whole page and am not sure I still have the whole post as I stated on Oct. 8.

  • http://www.whycanadamustend.com/ Tony Kondaks

    Please. You can't blame someone who hosts a website for the words and actions of those that post on that website.

  • billlevinson

    My Web page at http://www.stentorian.com/Obama/#MyBO has an extensive collection of anti-Semitic and other hate speech that was approved by Barack Obama's moderators. The moderators also welcomed a participant's wish that an attempted assassination of President Bush had succeeded, postings that use a four-letter epithet for Jews, and other postings that use a five-letter word for a female dog to refer to Hillary Clinton (that's Obama's party unity for you). To this may be added numerous jokes about Alzheimer's disease and senior citizens, directed primarily against John McCain.

    It has been proven not beyond a reasonable doubt but beyond any doubt that Obama's moderators exercise editorial control over the site, so he is indeed responsible for whatever his moderators allow to remain on the site: anti-Semitic hate speech, misogynist hate speech, hate speech against senior citizens, and even worse material.

  • billlevinson

    “Please. You can't blame someone who hosts a website for the words and actions of those that post on that website.”

    Four words: “Exercise of editorial control.” The old Internet newsgroups could not be racist or anti-Semitic no matter what people posted, because nobody exercised editorial control over their content. The instant your moderators delete postings and cancel accounts (as happened to mine at my.barackobama.com, and I have published proof in the form of an E-mail, with full headers, from a moderator named Emily), you own whatever you allow to remain. This is why MoveOn.org had to take down its Action Forum in 2006; it was proven that the moderators welcomed the most vicious imaginable hate speech against Jews and Catholics, and also 9/11 Denial.

    See also “Stratton Oakmont, Inc. v. Prodigy Services Co.” for more about exercise of editorial control and its implications.

  • billlevinson

    Katherine,

    Barry's moderators are very diligent about throwing these postings under the bus when they get discussed at places like Front Page Magazine, IsraPundit, Atlas Shrugs, and Free Republic. In other words, they hide the evidence when they get caught; otherwise, they allow the hate speech to stand.

    I have in fact downloaded many of the pages in question, including screen shots of testimonials that Barry accepted from hate-mongers Jeremiah Wright and Michael Pfleger.

  • http://www.whycanadamustend.com/ Tony Kondaks

    “…you own whatever you allow to remain.”

    What exactly does that mean? Would that mean if someone posts a comment here on frontpagemag.com that is polite and respectful yet advocates communism for the United States that either Jamie Glazov or David Horowitz would then “own it” because they let it stay on the comments page?

    To paraphrase Alan Dershowitz (a frequent contributor to frontpagemag.com) I personally like my anti-Semitism out in the open where it can be exposed for what it is and countered with facts and reasoned arguments. I do NOT want it underground where it is harder to both find and diminish.

  • therealend

    I saw the same thing on USA Today comment boards every time Israel retaliated against an Hamas or Hezbollah attack. I know the Left is bigoted. I imagine they call it something else. I guess the feeling there is that the Israelis should shut up and die more quietly. Where have I heard that before it came to America?

  • http://www.whycanadamustend.com/ Tony Kondaks

    Thank you for the suggestion to read up on “Stratton” which I just did at Wikipedia.

    Although the court found the service provider liable in Stratton, subsequent legislation removed the possibility of liability in future cases. From the Wiki entry:

    “Today, online service providers are protected from liability as a publisher for defamatory statements made on their servers by § 230 of the Communications Decency Act.”

  • cjkcjk

    What I find even more telling and despicable is that he would bring up his children there!!!

  • billlevinson

    I am not talking about polite advocacy of things like communism. I am talking about hate speech against Jews, Christians, and others. The postings at My.BarackObama.com go far beyond with disagreement with, for example, Zionism; they make anti-Semitic assertions about Jews with divided loyalties, use four-letter epithets for Jews, and so on.

  • cjkcjk

    Cite me a SPECIFIC example of racism on FOX or by a writer at this site skank.

  • cjkcjk

    Methinks your an ignorant schmuck. LOL

  • cjkcjk

    Really? and just who are we planning to drive into the sea?

  • cjkcjk

    billlevinson: What out for the SS.

  • cjkcjk

    PLEASE! We're talking about a history and a pattern here which becomes more and more undeniable as time passes.

  • Mark

    Evidently cjkcjk's education is incomplete. Let me educate her ignorance. Many people oppose Zionism but do not oppose Judaism. In fact, there are many Jews who oppose Zionism, such as:

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

    For more information see http://americanpowerblog.blogspot.com/2009/01/j

    To equate anti-Semitism with anti-Zionism demonstrates a simple lack of knowledge in this regard. To label anyone who points out this difference as an “ignorant schmuck” is arrogance compounded by ignorance.

  • rdesoto

    “If we're such morons, why is it the left needs us but we don't need the left?”
    Excellent point! I never thought of that and must thank you. It is absolutely true.
    Take the right (the 60% who work hard and produce value, that is taxed for the left) away and the monkeys (thieves, nothing to do with race) starve.

    I say starve them…where is john Gault?

  • CowboyUp

    Nice dodge, but you didn't answer my question.

  • cjkcjk

    CORRECTION: e knows you're an ignorant schmuck.

  • Kaleokualoha

    Sorry to have burst your bubble, little girl, but if you go to school and study very hard, you may be able to comprehend the difference between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism. It's the difference between hating a subset of a group, and hating the entire group.

    If you dig even deeper, little girl, it's similar to the race-baiting that conservatives have accused some Obama defenders of using. They complain when conservative criticism of Obama is attributed to racist motives, when their true motives are with the politics rather than the race of Obama.

    While some critics are undoubtedly driven by racism, most conservative criticism of Obama would be muted if he was as conservative as Larry Elder or Thomas Sowell. Falsely attributing racial motives to THIS segment is race-baiting, just as Rev. Wright's false attribution of the origin of AIDS was race-baiting.

    Unless you are aware of rhetorical categories, you concept of life will remain fuzzy. You seem destined to flounder forever in Right-Wing Fantasyland: Jumping to conclusions seems to be quite common in the fantasyland of the right-wing blogosphere. When asked to substantiate their conclusions, we may encounter bluster, red herrings, and ad hominem attacks more often than rational, focused answers. Military Intelligence students are quickly disabused of such behavior, and learn the value of supporting every conclusion they proffer. Researchers at the Rand Corporation and other highly regarded research institutions often come from such rigorous backgrounds, where conclusions are based on empirical evidence, rather than wishful thinking.

    Is ignorance truly bliss?

  • RightTurner

    Confusing how Rahm Emmanuel, Cass Sunstein, and David Axelrod are Jews.
    I'm not doubting the veracity of Geller's assertions, I'm just puzzled by these Jewish political figures. In fact, I thought we would all see the Jewish vote fleeing from Obama in the 2008 election, but very curiously we did not.

    Any explanation is welcome.

    Have you ever heard of the term Kapo?
    During the Holocaust there were prisoners who actually helped the SS in their murderous activity and by some accounts many were happy in the role.
    Now I'm not saying the Man-Child's henchmen are Kapos, I am saying that history has no shortage of troubling behavior.
