Hochul bends knee, apologizes after saying Israel has a ‘right’ to defend itself

After finally saying something true and righteous, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul has predictably bent the knee and apologized.

Speaking at a United Jewish Appeal-Federation event on Thursday, she stated bluntly that Israel has the right to defend itself against the Hamas terrorists who butchered 1,300+ of its citizens on Oct. 7th, 2023.

“Call Hamas for what it is. It is a terrorist organization that must be stopped. No one should live with that threat, that specter, over them,”” she said. “Those who don’t understand this dynamic here in our own state in our own country. I’ll give you an example. I’m from Buffalo, anybody realize that?”

“If Canada someday ever attacked Buffalo, I’m sorry my friends, there would be no Canada the next day. That’s a natural reaction. You have a right to defend yourself and to make sure it never happens again,” she added.


She was right, of course, and she deserved credit for saying the truth — up until she bent the knee and apologized, that is.

What spurred the apology? Hordes of leftists responding to the video above by accusing her of justifying Israel’s so-called “genocide.”


Evidently bothered by this criticism from deranged leftists, Hochul quickly rushed to The New York Times to issue an apology, telling them that she regretted her “inappropriate analogy” and “poor choice of words.”

“While I have been clear in my support of Israel’s right to self-defense, I have also repeatedly said and continue to believe that Palestinian civilian casualties should be avoided and that more humanitarian aid must go to the people of Gaza,” she added.

Unfortunately for her, it was already too late.


FYI, Israel isn’t committing a “genocide” in Gaza. It’s attempting to slowly but surely root out and eliminate Hamas, the terrorist masterminds who, in addition to terrorizing Israel nonstop, have terrorized their own citizens for years …
