Former CIA operative Valerie Plame, who was caught up in controversy recently after tweeting an anti-Semitic article, is running for Congress in New Mexico as a Democrat, meaning she would join an already growing anti-Semitic faction in her party should she win.
And there are a number of “tolerant” Hollywood celebrities lining up behind her already.
The Washington Free Beacon notes:
Plame’s Hollywood supporters include actors Bryan Cranston, Naomi Watts, and Michael Douglas, producers Doug Liman and Jonathan Nolan, and billionaire Lynda Resnick. Watts played Plame in the 2010 film Fair Game based on Plame’s career at the CIA. Liman directed the film, which struggled at the box office.
The Hollywood donations came though Plame has leveled attacks on American Jews (remember when actor Mel Gibson was chastised and banished by Hollywood’s Jewish producers for making a drunken anti-Semitic remark? Guess there’s a difference between Right-leaning anti-Semitic remarks and Left-wing anti-Semites).
Plame resigned from the Ploughshares Fund board in 2017 after tweeting an article titled “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars,” in which author Philip Giraldi hinted certain American Jews should be given a label when appearing on television “kind-of-like a warning label on a bottle of rat poison.”
That’s exactly what Gibson said when he was arrested, drunk, in 2006: “The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world!” according to the 2006 arrest report.
Initially, Plame defended the article with the excuse that “Many neocon hawks ARE Jewish” while asking people to “read the entire article.”
But after that defense failed to silence her critics, Plame deleted the post and said she was sorry.
Since then, she has blamed the tweet on multitasking during a move and claimed that she had not read the entire article. “Social media very unforgiving,” she said.
However, as the Free Beacon noted further:
It is unclear if Plame was also moving when she shared at least eight other articles from the same outlet, including one piece that accused Israelis of celebrating in the wake of 9/11. The publisher, a self-described “alternative media selection” known as the Unz Review, routinely features Holocaust denial arguments and rampant anti-Semitism. The Unz Review has donated tens of thousands of dollars to the website VDARE.
In addition, Plame has received three separate donations from former congressman Pete McCloskey, who once made reference to the “so-called Holocaust” during a 2000 address to the Institute for Historical Review (IHR).
That’s an organization widely known for publishing Holocaust denial books and articles.
McCloskey, who served as a Republican before changing his affiliation to the Democratic Party, added, “I don’t know whether you are right or wrong about the Holocaust.”
Should Plame win a congressional seat, she would become the first white Democrat anti-Semite, joining ‘women of color’ in a sort of “Anti-Semite Caucus” that includes Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar.
