Lara Marlowe

Lara Marlowe was Middle East Correspondent for the Irish Times in 1996-2009. She defined their hostility to Israel during the Intifada years.

She was US Correspondent 2009-2012. She defined their super-partisan coverage of Obama during the Obama years.

Lara Marlowe on Israel

Lara Marlowe can even read about Ahmad Abu Halabiya at the ADL site.
Googling isn't that hard!

The New York Times doesn't like Googling either.
This article of 23 Jan 2012 is shocked at an "Islamophobic" film showing the black flag of Islamic jihad flying over the White House.
They don't bother doing the one minute's Googling that would show them that this image was made by the Islamists themselves.

Lara Marlowe's furious spin for Obama

Obama apologises for America.
If you criticise Obama's "apology tour" you are a racist, according to Lara Marlowe.

The Heritage Foundation gives us a rundown of Obama's apologies for America.
Maybe Lara Marlowe should read this.

Criticising Obama is "racist"

Lara Marlowe loves to play the race card. Again and again, she implies that criticising Obama is "racist".

Lara Marlowe calls the Tea Party "racist" for wanting to get rid of Obama.
Yes, that's why they like Herman Cain (above).
Not to mention Allen West. And Tim Scott. And so on.
What a pathetic argument. "You must be racist if you oppose a black left-winger!"

The Obama "race card".
Marlowe plays it even more than Obama does!
From here.

Black unemployment under Obama, as compared to the "racist" Bush.
Don't expect Lara Marlowe to cover this story!

Lara Marlowe hates the Tea Party, but loves the Flea Party

Lara Marlowe calls any opposition to the great President Obama racist. She called the Tea Party racist, despite no evidence.

So it is pretty amusing, given her hatred for the boring, family-oriented, moderate, mainstream Tea Party, to see her gushing support for the radical, aggressive, hate-filled, violent, vandalising, criminal "Flea Party" (the Occupy movement).

Lists of "Occupy Wall Street" crimes, deaths, violence and incidents here and here.
There is a reason why they were called the "Flea Party" or "Flea Bag" protests.

The Occupy movement (The "Flea Party")

Hilarious. A calm, logical Brit (Charles C. W. Cooke of National Review) interviews an Occupy person, 11 Oct 2011.
He asks him why the state should pay for his college tuition.
"I mean I'd quite like a new car. Should that be paid for?"

The Jew-hating tyranny of Iran, the world's no.1 terrorist state, declares its solidarity with the Occupy movement. Makes sense.
From Iranian state controlled propaganda, 3 Dec 2011.
After the Iranian state controlled attack on the British Embassy on 29 November 2011.
Iranian regime leader Ayatollah Khamenei praises the Occupy movement, Aug 2012.
Oddly, I can't find Iran praising the Tea Party.

And of course no piece on the Occupy movement would be complete without a statement from this idiot.

Many leftie clerics like Rowan Williams have been supporting the Occupy movement, and letting them block and use (desecrate) their churches.
Of course the Occupy people appreciate this: "parts of the bronze baptismal font were gone ... an occupier peed inside the building ... an occupier urinated on a cross ... a $2,400 Apple MacBook vanished from [the cleric's] office."
They're just like the Tea Party!

Occupy Democrats

The following double standards are absolutely hilarious.

Jan 2015: "Occupy Democrats" says that "disrespecting" President Obama is "treason".

Nov 2016: "Occupy Democrats" supports the protests against the election of President Trump.

2012 US election

In the 2012 US presidential election, Lara Marlowe does everything she can to spin for Obama.

Why would anyone who is not a Democrat supporter read the Irish Times?

Lara Marlowe supports the white guy (and opposes the black guy)

Lara Marlowe has spent years implying that opponents of Barack Obama are "racist". So it is hilarious to find an example where she supports the white politician, and wants to see the black politician defeated. A writer I know called Lara Marlowe would call this kind of thing racist!

In 2010, Florida's 22nd congressional district, which is 82 percent white, 11 percent Hispanic and only 4 percent black, nevertheless elected a black representative Allen West. For re-election in 2012, Allen West switched to Florida's 18th congressional district, which is 63 percent Hispanic, 30 percent white and 6 percent black.

Allen West's 2010 election in an 82 percent white district was a wonderful example of how non-racist the white American voter is. And yet Lara Marlowe wants him out in 2012, and she supports his white opponent. Hilarious stuff.

Left: Allen West (R).
Right: His opponent Patrick Murphy (D).
Which one does Lara Marlowe support? That's right, the white guy!
For some reason, here it is alright for Lara Marlowe and the Irish Times to support the white man, and oppose the black man.

"The funny part is that the only people conspicuously obsessed with Obama's race are the people who trot out this nonsense. The logic sometimes seems to be, "we love that Obama is black, therefore people who don't like Obama must not like him because he's black." Maybe we just don't care and we're focusing on other things? I have no doubt there are people who don't like Obama because he's black. But I've never personally met such a person".

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I like debate. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.

Twitter is saved, 2022: In 2022 Elon Musk bought Twitter and started to end the censorship. It looks great so far. Twitter seems to be saved.
