Ex-CIA Operative Valerie Plame Apologizes for Defending Anti-Semitic Article on Twitter

What happened?

Valerie Plame Wilson, an ex-CIA officer, and writer shared an article on Twitter headlined “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars.” Twitter responded with a big “huh?????” At first, Wilson defended the piece by saying that “many neocon hawks ARE Jewish.” When the backlash grew, she changed her mind and tweeted an apology.

What does this teach us about modern fascism?

People sometimes use words like “provocative” to hide their bigotry. Plame’s apology seems questionable since she’s tweeted an article by the same author before.

“How superior she must feel to demonize an entire race of people,” Glenn Beck said on Friday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”

Glenn’s take:

Glenn gave a quick synopsis of Plame’s background; she was a CIA officer whose career was ended after a media leak during the Bush administration. The scandal was known as “Plamegate.”

“Ever since, she has been a star and a darling of the left,” Glenn said, later adding, “Liberal fascism is alive and well.”

GLENN: If you remember at all, Valerie Plame from Plamegate -- this was when the Bush administration had a media leak that, quote, blew her CIA cover. I'm not going to get into the details of this. But it ended her career. And ever since, she has been a star and a darling of the left. She has campaigned for Hillary Clinton. She has fundraised most recently a national campaign to try to buy Twitter to get Trump kicked off of social media.

Fascist anyone? Yesterday, Valerie tweeted an article titled America's Jews are driving America's wars. She not only didn't apologize or try to delete the tweet, she actually doubled down at first.

Yes, yes. I know it's very provocative, but thoughtful. Many neocon hawks are Jewish.

Yes, and many are not Jewish, I would like to point out.

It was only after receiving mass outrage that she finally backed down. I missed gross undercurrents of this article. And I didn't do my homework on the platform this piece came from. Now that I see it, it was obvious.

Really? Because there was a couple of things. You've tweeted from this author before. And when the subject matter of your tweet in the title -- the title is, America's Jews are driving America's war. It's not really an undercurrent. Valerie, it is the current.

But I'd like to thank her today for showing us what true fascism looks like. How superior she must feel to demonize an entire race of people. It's been done before. And it's being done again.

If these narratives and conspiracy theories sound familiar to you, you're right. They were used by the left-leaning media outlets. You don't know where I'm going, do you? To help Obama promote the Iranian nuclear deal by the same people.

It was also used in other times in history. Germany was only one of those times. Liberal fascism is alive and well.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?

LIVE NOW: Golden State Gulag: California's pursuit of Communism is a WARNING for America

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?
