Hagee preached that Adolf Hitler was a "hunter" sent by God to kill Jews in order to force them to move to Israel. WTF!?
"Then god sent a hunter. A hunter is someone with a gun and he forces you. Hitler was a hunter. And the Bible says -- Jeremiah writing -- 'They shall hunt them from every mountain and from every hill and from the holes of the rocks,' meaning there's no place to hide. And that might be offensive to some people but don't let your heart be offended. I didn't write it, Jeremiah wrote it. It was the truth and it is the truth. How did it happen? Because God allowed it to happen. Why did it happen? Because God said my top priority for the Jewish people is to get them to come back to the land of Israel." - Rev. John Hagee, McCain's spiritual confidant
I don't know what is more shocking that someone could make such an idiotic argument, that John McCain refuses to denounce this blatant anti-semitism, or that the media refuses to give this whackjob preacher even 1% of the airtime given to Jeremiah Wright. There is nothing that Wright has said that is even marginally as offensive as what Hagee has repeatedly said.
Hagee has repeatedly argued that anti-semitism is the fault of Jews themselves, and that Israel must not negotiate in any form with the Palestinians or Hagee's dream of armageddon will not be realized. Yet for some reason, the media continues to obsess with Jeremiah Wright and Barack Obama's "problem" with Jewish voters, as evidenced in today's New York Times. How about some fairness and accuracy in the media?
UPDATE: Hagee has "withdrawn" his endorsement of McCain, and at around the same time, McCain said he "rejects" Hagee's endorsement. Yeah. Nudge nudge wink wink. The two are done with each other. Sure.
