It's time once again for the Watcher's Council's 'Weasel Of The Week' nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday , tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!
Here are this weeks' nominees....
Hollywood Wack Job And Dictator/Psycopath Groupie Sean Penn!!
The Noisy Room : I nominate Sean Penn for hearting every dictator and commie under the sun. His latest is El Chapo, who he inadvertently helped capture because he was interviewing him for a magazine that would make the drug pin look like some kind of hero. Then Penn jetted off to North Korea to pal around with another psychopath. What about violating the Logan Act? Don't we charge anyone with treason anymore? Geez.
Penn has met with one of Saddam Hussein’s top aides, then-Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz. Penn’s opposition to the Iraq war led him to bond with the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, an ardent socialist who once suggested that the actor would make a great ambassador to his country. Penn’s other forays into political activism include his foul-mouthed call for the impeachment of President George W. Bush when he won the first Christopher Reeve First Amendment Award in 2006. He also has a fondness for the Castro brothers. Finally, he is buds with the Russians who are touting that he helped capture El Chapo. Uh no. That's not what happened. However, for being a commie Hollywood weasel, I wouldn't want Penn to go home empty handed - give him a golden weasel. Twice.
The Obama State Department!!
Fausta's Blog : The Weasel of the Week is the Obama administration, for shipping a Hellfire missile to Cuba,
- in early 2014
- which its manufacturer, Lockheed, noticed "was missing"in June of that year
- and ended up in Cuba
- during the time the Obama administration was finalizing its negotiations for easing relations with the Communist dictatorship, but didn't demand the missile back
- and instead removed Cuba from the states sponsors of terrorism list
- and went right ahead with the easing.
But wait! There's more:
- Some members of Congress were told.
- The State Dept. does not deny that the U.S. may have sold the missile to Cuba.
Makes the Sean Penn's movie deal disguised as a Rolling Stone mag interview with El Chapo - the most blood-thirsty drug lord of this century so far - look like a plot for a Disney movie.]
Sweden's Anti-Semitic Foreign Minister Margot Wallström!!
JoshuaPundit : Ahhh, when in doubt blame Israel. And by extension, the Jews of course.
Margot Wallström is the rabidly socialist Foreign minister of Sweden. She claims to be a 'feminist' who favors 'democracy' but was instrumental in getting Sweden to recognize 'Palestine', a country without borders as a 'state.' Palestine, by the way, is a place where a kleptocrat dictator named Mahmoud Abbas is now in year 11 of a four-year-term, where what passes for law is based on sharia and where things like honor killings, torture, and the oppression of women occur with distressing regularity. But hey, let's not mention any of that. Because it's all the fault of Israel! Or so you would think if you listened to Minister Wallström.
She got major headlines back in November by immediately blaming the Paris attacks on Israel and 'the occupation' something ISIS didn't even do. In response to that one, Israel summoned Sweden’s ambassador to the Jewish state for an urgent meeting with Israeli Foreign Ministry Director-General Dore Gold, calling the Swedish minister’s remarks “brazen,” “shocking,” and “hostile.”
A few weeks later, she accused Israeli security forces of carry out extra-judicial killings in defending themselves and others against - wait for it - Arabs whom call themselves Palestinians whom were actually in the process of murdering as many Israelis as possible in vicious terrorist attacks.
Her latest bon mot? Today, after Swedish member of parliament Jan Björklund challenged her frequent obsession with Israel as being unfair and said that it had damaged Sweden’s diplomatic efforts in the region, she doubled down, saying, "It is vital that there is a thorough, credible investigation into these deaths in order to clarify and bring about possible accountability.” Obviously she has no interest in investigating the role of incitement and collusion by Abbas and the PLO for 'possible accountability' as a cause of the deaths of Israelis.
Israel's foreign office denounced her remarks as “irresponsible and delusional", but I found former israel foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman's comments to be the most apropos: “The only thing the foreign minister of Sweden hasn’t done is physically join the Palestinian terrorists and stab Jews.”
Quite the Weasel, Ms. Wallström!
Well, there it is. What a despicable group of Weasels...ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!
