Former Rep. Cynthia McKinney of Georgia, the Green Party's presidential nominee this year, is back in the news.
McKinney was on a boat that confronted the Israeli navy as it attempted to enter Gaza to deliver medical supplies. Depending on whose version you believe, the ship -- sent by the Free Gaza Movement -- was either deliberately rammed three times, causing serious damage, or was part of an accidental collision that occurred as it attempted to maneuver around the Israeli vessel.
For me, I tend to believe that Israel had every right to do what they did. Hamas and its supporters cannot be trusted to do anything that is proper and true.
But I do have to wonder: What is any "peace organization" (as THEY call themselves) doing, putting McKinney on that ship? She has a long history of anti-Semitism around her -- among other examples, her father tagged one of her electoral opponents "a racist Jew" and once opined, "Jews have brought everybody. Jews. J-E-W-S."
This woman needs to go back to Georgia and live in quite solitude. She is going to be added to my list of "Famous/Infamous Mooks."
