Leftists always seem to have a penchant for using words that mean exactly the opposite of how they’re used. “Progressive” is used to describe a retrograde ideology; “Social Justice” is used to describe wealth re-distribution; “Abortion” is used to describe murder; “Transparency” is used to describe stonewalling; and “Civil rights” is used to quash dissent.
Now, while speaking at the Holocaust Museum, Barack Obama announced that he would be appointing Samantha Powers to head his Atrocities Prevention Board.
Via Yid with Lid:
Only Barack Obama! Today the President tried to show he was a friend of the Jews with a beautifully crafted speech Holocaust Museum. Showing his words mean nothing, also today Samantha Power began work today as chair of President Barack Obama’s new Atrocities Prevention Board. If you don’t remember Ms Power she once called for a US force to invade Israel and force through a “peace settlement.” Powers also had some unflattering things to say about about America’s Jewish population during the 2008 campaign
How long do you think it will be before Powers uses that board as tool to de-legitimize Israel?
Here is video of Samantha Powers in 2002:
