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.

FULL EPISODE: 'The Democrats' Hydra'

"As one falls, two more will take their place." Democracy does die in darkness and is being strangled in secret, back-door arrangements. In the third part of Glenn's special series on the REAL Ukraine scandal, the team's research exposes a much bigger story of what Democrats were doing in Ukraine. Disturbing details and explosive documents reveal how the Obama Deep State allowed the theft of a country and has set the stage for devastating consequences in our democracy today. Glenn explains how it's all happening under the nose of the president and, more importantly, without the approval of the American people.
