With the story of the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero continuing to dominate the news cycles, I have been doing a lot of media, and readers of my website AtlasShrugs.com are well aware of the campaign of destruction that the leftist/Islamic machine against freedom defenders. Monday night’s Ground Zero mosque segment on Eric Bolling’s Money Rocks on Fox perfectly illustrates this, and the perverse marriage of the left and the jihad.

The particularly vile (though typical for the unindicted co-conspirator, Hamas-linked, Muslim Brotherhood front Council on American-Islamic Relations — CAIR) Ahmed Rehab did his usual Islamic supremacist jig, and he had the grotesque Bob Beckel as his water boy. Beckel is a famous failure: he was Walter Mondale’s campaign manager for his disastrous 1984 presidential campaign. I had been fortunate, up until Monday night, not to have to be in the same studio with that slob, but on this occasion I was not spared the abuse of Beckel’s presence.
I was the only female on the panel, and as we were prepping (getting miked, etc.) for the show, Beckel was regaling his victims (Bill Hemmer, David Webb and Bolling) with sordid tales of pole dancers and the like. It was grotesque and deliberate – and unwelcome: nobody was backslapping this pig, trust me.
Once we went into the live tape, Beckel carried water for the Hamas-linked CAIR rep — and he was richly rewarded for his dhimmi status. Bolling played an earlier tape of Beckel saying, ““Look, at some point, I know it’s sensitive here in New York and probably New Jersey, but we have to get over 9/11.” That was all Rehab needed: he referred to this constantly.
But Beckel’s response when asked about this was to attack me. So I said this:
I would like to address Mr. Beckel’s point. I don’t know why you’re carrying water for the most radical, intolerant ideology in the world today. There have been 20,000 documented radical Islamic attacks since 9/11. Each one with the imprimatur of a Muslim cleric.
To that, Beckel showed his misogynistic side, turning to me, waving his finger in my face and saying:
You better be very careful. You’re a woman, you better be very careful about who you say I carry water for, because you have no idea what you’re talking about. And don’t start putting me in the middle of your crap!
“You’re a woman”?
Remember, this was the same Beckel who called Hannah Giles a “ho” last winter, and who was the focus of an extortion plot by a prostitute who tried to get $50,000 out of him to keep him quiet about their liaisons. It looks as if I was right when I called him a “woman-hater.”
It got ugly between Beckel and me not only during the show, but also after the show. When we cut to a break after the first segment, Beckel chided Bolling for not bringing “Jewish slumlords” on the show (referring to Bolling’s segment on Ground Zero Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s status as a New Jersey slumlord, so named in a lawsuit against Rauf by Union City).
When I heard Beckel’s Jew-hating belch, I said, “and you’re an anti-semite.” He told me, “kiss my ass,” to which I responded that he would never get anyone anywhere in the world to get with that.
Meanwhile, on the show, Rehab repeated Media Matters lies about me and my work, trying as hard as he could to make the Ground Zero mosque story into one that was all about me, hoping that if he and Beckel succeeded in destroying me, the mosque story would go away.
The leftists and the Islamic supremacists cannot counter our arguments, so they resort to personal destruction. This is what happens to anyone who stands against them and for freedom today: they will comb through what you have said and done to try to find material they can use to discredit you, no matter how much they have to misrepresent it and lie about your real intentions to do so. They will shout you down and call you names, all the while accusing you of doing what they are actually doing. They will stop at nothing to destroy you, so that not only will no one take you seriously or listen to you, but also anyone whom they can associate with you, however tenuously, is also tainted.
But all this means only this: that lovers of freedom must stand up all the more, and speak out all the more loudly, and never rest in the cause of justice and the right. Because their evil, thuggish, bullying tactics must not prevail. And they will not prevail.
