ADL: Helen Thomas is a vulgar anti-Semite.

Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, issued the following statement:

Helen Thomas has clearly, unequivocally revealed herself as a vulgar anti-Semite. Her suggestion that Zionists control government, finance and Hollywood is nothing less than classic, garden-variety anti-Semitism. This is a sad final chapter to an otherwise illustrious career. Unlike her previous, spontaneous remarks into a camera, these words were carefully thought out and conscious. It shows a prejudice that is deep-seated and obsessive.

Not surprisingly, Foxman blew it by referring to her "illustrious" career.

She was *always* a troll, and somehow--no one can explain why--was treated with the utmost respect and deference.

We Catholics call this the sin of human respect, BTW.
