Former US Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) is an Israeli prison after she and other “activists” attempted to take a ship through an Israeli blockade of Gaza. Now she wants out.
“We were in international waters on a boat delivering humanitarian aid to people in Gaza when the Israeli Navy ships surrounded us and illegally threatened us, dismantled our navigation equipment, boarded and confiscated the ship,” she said in a statement, adding that they were immediately taken into custody.
“Immigration officials in Israel said they did not want to keep us, but we remain imprisoned,” she said.
Ok, fine. She was taking dollies, chess sets, Robitussin and snacky cakes to the folks in Gaza. The US has already promised nearly a billion dollars in aid to the terrorist Hamas regime that controlled Gaza. Why did they need her stuff?
Given McKinney’s wild, conspiracy theory-fueled ideals and her undying love for the people who hate Israel, it might do her good to have a little “time out.” Notice that Obama isn’t making any great effort to bail this crazy woman out of prison despite his public statements.
State Department and White House officials have not effected our release or taken a strong public stance to condemn the illegal actions of the Israeli Navy of enforcing a blockade of humanitarian assistance to the Palestinians of Gaza, a blockade that has been condemned by President Obama.”
McKinney is borderline….no she is full-fledged NUTS. And she is anti-Semitic. She is squarely associated with anti-semitic elements. After she lost her Georgia re-election campaign due to her kook statements and actions, her anti-Semite brothers stepped in.
Following McKinney’s concession speech, a reporter attempted to ask the Congresswoman why she thought she lost. The New Black Panther member interrupted, shouting, “Why do you think she lost? You wanna know what led to the loss? Israel. The Zionists. You. Put on your yarmulke and celebrate.”
“This incident is reminiscent of the 2002 campaign in which Rep. McKinney’s father “blamed the J-E-W-S” for her defeat,” said Ms. Rose. “Rep. McKinney did not distance herself from the anti-Semitic comments then, and her service in Congress has been clouded by a perception that she also harbors such feelings.”
So, maybe it’s time that Cynthia spent a little time in deep thought. Obama won’t claim her. She was defeated for re-election in a primary by another black Democrat. She was too whacko for everyone in her own party. That speaks volumes to her objectives and ideology.
At least, under Israeli detention, she will not be tortured or decapitated.
