Wow. I never thought I would say this, but… I totally agree with Howard Stern.
Please don’t tell my mom. She’d never get over me saying that.
Look, I don’t like Howard Stern’s brand of entertainment – never have, never will – but that doesn’t mean he can’t be right now and again. This is one of those times. Last week he had a caller looking to goad him into a fight over whether or not Israel was at fault for what is happening in the Middle East, but Stern was having none of it. He responded in true Howard Stern style, lambasting NBA star Dwight Howard, pop star Rihanna, rocker Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, and anyone else seeking to lay the blame for violence in Palestine at Israel’s feet.
Stern pointed out that Israel is under constant attack; they are the only Western Democracy in the Middle East, and the only nation there with Western values willing to stand against terrorism.
I’ve posted the video/audio of his epic rant below, but please be warned…
The language is definitely not safe for work (or for genteel ears). Stern’s commentary is littered with F-Bombs and liberal use of other foul expletives. Please be warned.
(WARNING: FOUL LANGUAGE AHEAD!)
“Jews get enough s*** all over the world … Jews are the indigenous people of that area. The Arabs don’t even want those Palestinians .. nobody wants them.”
“If you’re anti-Israel you’re anti-America. [It’s] the only democracy over there, the only friend we have .. who’s willing to fight and stand up for what’s right.”
“Instead of being mad at the f***ing terrorists raping their country … that they’re not angry with. They’re angry with Israel,” he says. “They elected terrorists to run their country.”
Right on, Howard.
