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.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
