One Dem Candidate Calls Another A ‘Whore’ For AIPAC During Live Debate

Things got heated during a Democratic primary debate for the U.S. Senate in Connecticut on Thursday when one candidate told another that he was “whore” over his support of a pro-Israel lobbying group.

“I’m appalled that when I talk about the neoconservatives somehow it’s twisted to be some sort of a racist comment,” long-shot candidate Lee Whitnum said in response to U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy. “This is documented fact. The neoconservative role in the taking down of Iraq unnecessary war is fact. It’s not opinion.”

“I’m dealing with whore here who sells his soul to AIPAC , who will say anything for the job,” Whitnum explained, pointing towards Murphy and then adding that state Rep. William Tong was “ignorant” for defending him.

“What I would like to propose is a prosecution of settlers here, American settlers, who go to Israel and maim or kill in the Promised Land. Since 2000, 66,000 of the indigenous culture have been killed, many of them by American settlers. This is viewed all over the Middle East and we are hated for this worldwide.”

8. She's a real piece of work. Jews responsible for 911, Iraq....

Netanyahu is the most powerful man in the world b/c he owns us (America).

Palestinians living in concentration camp conditions (what fun is it if a nazi comparison isn't included)?

10. She said that she is anti-Zionist but not anti-semitic

What, you don't believe her?


From her pledge page:

The problem is AIPAC and Zionism. I am a Progressive Democrat. I am not anti-Semitic but I am anti-Zionist and vehemently anti-AIPAC. AIPAC is a cancer in our government. AIPAC must be put in check.

11. I believe that none of her words other than 'whore' and cancer will matter much

but if you so believe what you just wrote by all means vote for her, saying that she becomes the Dem candidate for Connecticut, unless of course you do not live there, perhaps you could show solidarity in other ways contribute to her campaign or something, I'm sure you can think of something to do for her, be sure to let us know okay?

14. In the I/P thread about Gunter the Nazi

You said that you believed his claim that he was "drafted" into the waffen SS.

I'm just curious whether you believe Whitnum's claim that she is just anti-Zionist and not anti-semitic.

FYI - it's not in Gunter the Nazi's wiki entry but are you aware he VOLUNTARILY joined the Hitler Youth when he was a kid? Makes his claim about being drafted by the SS even more silly.

16. well about Günter Glass

he volunteered for the submarine service and was drafted into the Panzer unit of the SS but what difference does it make he was still in the German army during WWII, making him a Nazi by extension, as was every other person who served in the German Army during the years 1933 to 1945, however that is not damning enough for some it has to be he volunteered for the SS oh and no mention of Panzer division, better left to imagination just what he was doing eh? BTW it is more than Wiki, it was in his autobiography where he revealed his being in the SS during WWII and how he got there

Now as to the Hitler Youth unless you have proof Glass was born earlier than 1927 you do realize he was 6 when the Nazi's came to power in 1933 and 12 when Germany invaded Poland so judge away

all of which is why I have said this is quite reminiscent of the charges that George Soros was a Nazi collaborator

7. Well, Ms. Whitnum probably destroyed any chance she had by presenting that way

Most voters are not going to trust an obviously mentally disturbed person with one of their state's U.S. Senate seats.

Her campaign is now effectively over, and deservedly so.

9. I looked at her site

She seemed rather paranoid on the general subject of Israel, and generally a bit nuts. I assume that she has no chance.
