Larisa Alexandrova, blogger extramediocre and proud ’9/11 truther,’ (she appears to obsessed with the Bush administration. Previous administration bungles, bunglers and criminals are not subject to scrutiny, Sandy Berget and Jamie Gorelick notwithstanding) and offers up an heaping, malodorous plateful of mindless drivel. Her post, You Guys Have To See This, came about as the result of being taken to task and exposed by Dr Sanity for what she has come to represent- the lightweight intellectualism, hypocrisy and deceit of the hard left.
Pipsquikova is so upset at being exposed (nor is she too happy at having her limited comprehension skills noticed, either) that she has threatened to report Dr Sanity to the Michigan Medical Board for ‘unprofessional behavior.’ Apparently, having an opinion that might cause hurt feelings and bruised egos are causes for which Pipsquikova will gird her loins.
Clearly, Pipsquikova has some real projection and denial issues to deal with (see today’s post by Dr Sanity, The Denialists). Her self esteem has been assaulted and she knows not how to reply. Her instinct is to resort to having a tantrum and to lash out viciously and attempt to injure (she does not understand that she herself isn’t in Dr Sanity’s league and that she really isn’t even on Dr Sanity’s radar. Pipsquikova keeps insisting that most of Dr Sanity’s remarks were directed at her personally, when in fact, that is not the case. Dr Sanity used the idiotic blogger to illustrate her thesis- points thatPipsquikova proves so clearly).
Pipsquikova goes on to threaten Dr Sanity:
I suggest the good Dr. clarify her statements rather quickly because I will file an ethics complaint against a medical “expert” for using her expertise and professional authority to attack me in public and smear me as mentally unstable for my political views.
Dr Sanity did not smear anyone. She clearly pointed out what is obvious to anyone reading the mindless and asinine screeds of a substantial part of the left- that stupidity and hypocrisy abounds. In any event, Dr Sanity did indeed clarify her remarks to Alexandranova in a follow up post.
As an example of what passes for Pipsquikova ‘thought,’ consider the following:
The Hamas led legislature was elected in January of 2006. Like it or not, it was a democratic process by which the citizens of a country elected the party they felt had their best interests in mind.
…As a Jew, I don’t support any group with close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood for obvious reasons. Hamas is an offshoot of the Brotherhood. That said, however, I am not a citizen of Palestine and therefor, have no right to demand of the Palestinians that they elect someone I find to my liking.
Adolph Hitler too, was democratically elected. Had free European nations boycotted or even eliminated the Nazi leadership, 50 million lives would have been spared. We are under no obligation to recognize or support any regime, even if democratically elected, that promises ‘rivers of blood.’
We have also noted that the Nazis attempted to hide their evil intentions. Hamas cannot be bothered- and for good reason. The Nazi ideology was not fully known or understood by the Germans until after Hitler was in power. Hamas has never made a secret of it’s ideologies and beliefs that have espoused hate, racism, bigotry and violence. The Palestinians that voted for Hamas knew exactly what and who they were voting for. They made very clear who and what they are, as do the Arab nations that support Hamas.
That Pipsquikova asserts her religious identity and thus implies she has a greater moral compass is absurd. In fact, if religious identity were indeed a measure of credibility, her stature would be even further diminished, because the majority of Jews do not share her feelings toward the Hamas bigots and racists and their stated genocidal goals.
What Pipsquikova really represents is the concentration camp kapo mentality and ideology. There were those Jews who were the brutal and cruel overseers for their Nazi masters, in exchange for a few privileges and/or recognition. Like the Nazi era kapos that precede her, she is more than willing to offer up her Jewish brethren to Hamas, ‘because they were democratically elected.’ It’s nice to know that Pipsquikova ‘hopes’ that Hamas will change their ways, and thus become the first government in history that will reject anti Semitism and remove calls to violence and genocide from their school curriculum, media and religious instruction.Pipsquikova wants to be perceived as ‘enlightened’ and ‘progressive,’ so as to earn her leftist approval. To hell with the consequences and to hell with anyone else.
Pipsquikova gives new meaning to the word idiot.
It is also just as clear that like a moth to a flame, Pipsquikova seeks out yet more public humiliation. There is nothing that Dr Sanity has said and done that is actionable. Her complaint will be unceremoniously dismissed. In the end, it is Pipsquikova that will be humiliated. Any medical board to which she complains will come to validate the notion that she is indeed a ‘drama queen.’
That said, we do wonder how the Society of Professional Journalists would take to the notion that a ‘journalist’ would threaten an individual with retaliation and punishment because while they could dish it out, they couldn’t take the heat themselves.
Maybe it’s time to find out about that.
‘Anyone interested in fighting this kind of left wing extremism should consider contacting the Society of Professional Journalists ethics regarding Larisa Alexandranova and ask about the ethics of her behavior. ‘
UPDATE: It seems Pipsquikova is losing her grip on reality. She notes in another post, The Surreal Life Of Dr Sanity, that
I have never known the political background of any of my doctors. I have never asked and they have never volunteered. But I also have not seen any of my doctors use their real identity and pen the kind of unprofessional and unethical attacks this woman engages in. Something is terribly wrong at NASA.
Is Alexandranova saying that Dr Sanity’s political beliefs are germane to the healthcare she delivers? Does she have any evidence of that? Is she proposing that medical personnel refrain from having political opinions? Is she suggesting that doctors not be allowed to express their political beliefs? If she is so concerned about that, has she expressed her outrage at the analysts and psychiatrists (example here) that ‘diagnosed’ Mr Bush from a distance- or is her concern only now raised because her self esteem has been maligned? Probably not- and that only serves to highlight her hypocrisy.
She also takes umbrage at being referred to by us as a ‘kapo.’ She writes:
I lost family in the Holocaust and I have lived under the Soviet regime, under whom I have lost loved ones, including my beloved grandfather. To me the term Judenrate is more offensive than anything.
That Alexandranova lost family in the Holocaust is irrelevant to the politics she espouses now. That she is offended by being referred to a ‘kapo’ is a good thing, She should be offended because her actions and words only serve to validate our initial observations. Her response is an indication that there is some morality left within her.
We wrote about Alexandranova that
“Alexandrovna deceives with ease. She is like the kapo that knows the truth, and refuses to warn others of the truth. She focuses on the activities of some pre war American and British banks. What she does not acknowledge that some 6 years after the Holocaust, the Arab mantra of ‘We’ll finish what Hitler started’ is part and parcel of what passes for an Arab world educational priority.
She minimizes the participation of many Muslims during the Holocaust. Amin Husseini, mufti of Jerusalem, met with Hitler and offered his enthusiastic support for the ‘final solution.’ In fact, Husseni was to complain that Jews weren’t being killed fast enough.
Husseini’s support wasn’t only rhetorical- he raised an army of Bosnian volunteers that directly supported and participated in the Nazi war efforts.
In fact, Ms Alexandrovna is nothing more than a modern day equivalent of member of the Judenrat or kapo, perfectly willing to help the leftists sell out Israel so that she might maintain her ‘progressive’ bona fides (she is managing news editor of ‘Raw Story,’ and has contributed to Huffington, Alternet, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair and Newsweek). She isn’t like those ‘other Jews.’ She an ‘enlightened’ and ‘intellectual’ Jew. She is part of the elite, or so she thinks.”
Her reply addresses none of the issues raised, not even the blantant racism and hate. She insists there is a kind of moral equality between the Israelis and the Palestinian government, led by Hamas. Instead, she takes great umbrage:
Now I ask you folks, what kind of twisted mind would call a fellow Jew a Judenrat simply because I will not be party to the abuses of power and ugly hate that this administration has subjected us to? Why should I hate Muslims? I obviously do not support or like Muslim extremism, but I also do not support and/or like any form of extremism, including Jewish extremism. It is precisely because I have grown up under such extremism that I can say without doubt, that when one becomes the very enemy they claim to be fighting, one is no longer fighting the enemy. They become the enemy.
She does not address the issues raised. Instead, she changes the subject at hand and piously insists we are at fault (ignoring her own less than ambiguous support for Hamas, et al) .
(For the record, SC&A are not of the Jewish faith)
She implies that we hate Muslims, hoping to turn her own bigotry into ‘progressive’ inclusion. That of course, is an absurdity that can be easily dispensed with. It is her own bigotry that speaks loudest.
National political parties and social service agencies that want to be considered moral equals to with those in the western world cannot preach and teach hate- and be surprised when violence becomes a way of life. Hamas and Jihad for example, make no effort to hide their bigoted and racist agenda. In fact, Hamas, Jihad, et al, are no different than the Ku Klux Klan and other neo-Nazi organizations (many of which maintain relationships with Hamas).
Imagine a the Ku Klux Klan insisting it were the equivalent of other political party and organizations. Imagine a network of Ku Klux Klan schools. What do you suppose that curriculum would be like? Now, imagine that the children that attended those schools went home every day and were then exposed to Klan TV. Imagine those ideologies reinforced by the clergy, each week.
Imagine Klan summer camps that taught children guerrilla warfare and how to kill the neighbors they hated.
Imagine Klan schools, camps and other institutions bordered on a black, Jewish, Catholic or other immigrant neighborhoods.
Welcome to Larisa Alexandranova’s happy neighborhood, a place where racism and bigotry are encouraged and where doctors have to have their political expression approved.
SURPRISE! Alexandranova has banned SC&A from commenting. We had attempted to post the following remark:
Are you suggesting that doctors NOT be allowed to express their political beliefs? Are you suggesting that doctors only be allowed to practice if their political beliefs meet a kind of means test?
Those questions may apply to commenters as well.
Pipsqueakova maintains that she did not say that 9/11 was an ‘inside job.’ The film she is so proud of however, maintains that the administration knew about 9/11 in advance, failed to respond appropriately and questions how a steel building could collapse due to fire alone.
Good thing she cleared that conspiracy thing up.
