Folks, my regular readers already know this but to repeat it for my new readers, I have a notice in my sidebar that I reserve the right to publish e-mails and other text sent to me or placed here by readers of this blog, and these texts include emails, posts, commentaries, and replies to posts regarding and referencing Smooth Stone.
I have never opted to exercise this right that I have reserved because I never thought that, except for the love letters I had received from Debbie Fink, that my readers would be interested in an email volley of really rather ordinary email bitching.
Tonite, however, is not an ordinary nite. Tonite, I have chosen to reproduce my reply to a post from “Bridget”. “Bridget” has taken exception to my criticism of Teresa Heinz Kerry and the untoward contributions made by Teresa Heinz Kerry to the elusive Tides Foundation. “Bridget” sought out Smooth Stone, only heaven knows how, and, with self-righteous indignation, had the audacity to tell me that I am no friend of Israel for posting a rumor.
Little does “Bridget” know that she might as well be a bug on my windshield, because no one can tell me that Smooth Stone is no friend of Israel:
Here is my original post and, “Bridget”, who hails from the United Kingdom, posted the following comment:
The information about Tides Foundation and Tides Center at the Capital Research Center’s web site is false. Please do your readers a favor and research the facts before you post rumors and slander: http://www.snopes.com/politics/kerry/tides.asp. The CRC is not a reliable source for facts. They make you look bad when you choose them as your source for false rumors. U.S. citizens need accurate information so they can select a government that works for them instead of for large corporations. Be a good neighbor and don’t spread false rumors. Israel needs better friends, too.
Rather a rude response from a stranger who spent no more than three and a half minutes here, don’t you think, folks?
Here is my response to “Bridget”:
Teresa Heinz Kerry has financed the secretive Tides Foundation to the tune of more than $4 million over the years. The Tides Foundation, a “charity” established in 1976 by antiwar leftist activist Drummond Pike, distributes millions of dollars in grants every year to political organizations advocating far-Left causes. The Tides Foundation and its closely allied Tides Center, which was spun off from the Foundation in 1996 but run by Drummond Pike, distributed
nearly $66 million in grants in 2002 alone. In all, Tides has distributed more than $300 million for the Left. These funds went to rabid antiwar demonstrators, anti-trade demonstrators, domestic Islamist organizations, pro-terrorists legal groups, environmentalists, abortion partisans, extremist homosexual activists and open border activists. Regardless of the activities of the Tides Foundation, what’s more important is that my readers know that you, my dear “Bridget”, spent no more than three and one half minutes on my website, visiting from the United
Kingdom, and you proceed to dare to judge me and how I might be spreading false rumors on Teresa Heinz Kerry. Who the hell do you think you are? What are YOUR credentials? I have devoted several years of my life to defending the sovereign and legitimate nation of Israel against European Socialists like you, and typically you think you could tell me how to defend Israel in a three and a half minute visit to my site. Well you’re a lackey, “Bridget”. Heaven only knows who
you work for. If YOU had any integrity, you would have read my site and corroborated my sources and you would have learned that everything you see on this site is corroborated by more than one source. How dare you post here with some dim-witted self-righteous indignation that you know what’s better for the United States and Israel moreso than Americans and Israelis. Do me a favor – get lost and go crap on someone else’s doorstep. You make yourself look bad. If all you can bring to the table is Maxwell King’s defense of his company’s behavior, that you’re more an idiot than you realize. Israel has a good friend in Smooth Stone. On the other hand, snobby elitist cowards like John Kerry, who didn’t even mention Israel in his “acceptance” speech at the DNC, is not. Do give my “regards” to Debbie Fink, another European socialist komrade of yours, I’m sure you know of her porcine existence. I await your further righteous indignation.
Stay tuned, folks; I suspect “Bridget” won’t take criticism as well as I do and I promise to reproduce the darling “Bridget’s” reply in its entirety.Cheerio!
