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.

Elon Musk CALLED OUT for…chocolate milk?

You can milk anything with nipples, as we discovered in the documentary Meet the Parents. Maybe someone should tell Elon Musk if he's really serious about the environment, he should try oat milk, almond milk, heck — there's even banana milk. It would at least keep some of the lefty trolls at bay.

Biden’s border bloodbath: The deadly crisis EXPOSED

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.

Highest meat prices in GENERATIONS?!

Hey, if you love meat. Expect to be poorer. It looks like we're headed now for the meat prices that will be the highest level in generations. We're looking now at another 6% to 7% more for beef. Pork products increased about 5%. And chicken — more than 8%.

The problem is, there's a shortage of just a couple of things.

Labor.

Fuel.

Feed.

Oh yeah — and fertilizer.

So no big deal. Everything is awesome.
