Why is Pelosi hiring former terrorist fund raiser?
This distancing has however proven to be only momentary with Faiz R. Shakir, ThinkProgress’s longtime Editor-in-Chief and Vice President at the Center for American Progress, who had made the site what it is, going off to work as a senior advisor and new media director for Nancy Pelosi. Moving Faiz Shakir into such a prominent role where he will be able to influence policy and messaging for a key Democratic Party figure, while keeping Danielle “Jewbags” Gilbert on as the DNC liaison to the Jewish community, is proof once again that the Democratic Party does not take bigotry seriously when it is directed at Jews. Not only that, but it even rewards the bigots with plum posts....He has also supported aid to the Hamas death cult. His judgment is so suspect, that you also have to question Pelosi's in hiring him. ThinkProgress is not an organization associated with ideas most Americans support. It is a far left extremist organization. Perhaps that is why Pelosi is comfortable with this guy.
