Thanks for your thoughts. I hear you, but the issue is not one of free speech or intellectual disagreement. The video clearly shows that Ms Thomas hates Israel and the Jewish people and is speaking from hate. My question is, should someone who is a Jew hater (or bigot of any kind) be front and center in the White House press corps. If you look at her Facebook page her photo has the White House seal in the background as well. For better or worse she is aligned with the US brand.
I sincerely believe that such comments would never be tolerated if they were directed against any other group.
