But Romney already thanked him, how many times does he have express his gratitude?
(/s)

Srsly tho, Romney seems like he has a huge ego.

Romney Feb 10,2021:

“And so, he was talking to me about the whole day, and I just again told him how much I appreciated him, making sure that I was out of harm’s way.

1) “I just again told him”
2) “I appreciated him”
3) “that I was out of harm’s way”

Romney sounds like he went to the Hillary Clinton school of politico speaking, I, I, I.

AP (12/26/21)noted that Desmond Tutu “campaigned internationally for human rights”—but didn’t mention Israel/Palestine.
Obituaries in the corporate and establishment press for South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu rightly celebrated him not only as one of the key leaders of the struggle against apartheid in his own country, but as a global advocate against oppression, including being a fierce Christian voice against homophobia.
These obituaries often underplayed or ignored, however, that Tutu, as a South African crusader against apartheid, helped to normalize the idea that Palestinians suffered under a similar apartheid system. Likewise marginalized was the enormous amount of hate he received for his advocacy for Palestinians and his criticism of the Israeli government.

As of this writing, more than 3,000 people had signed a petition demanding a correction to the Guardian’s obituary (12/26/21). Petitioners complained that while the obit

documents the archbishop’s tireless struggle against oppression and racism of all kinds…Tutu’s repeated criticism of Israeli apartheid policies, and his commitment to the cause of the Palestinian people, are all simply omitted.

The article’s lone mention of Israel cited Tutu’s blasting “the US for supporting the Contras in Nicaragua and Israel for bombing Beirut.” The petition said that the article “exemplifies the Guardian’s consistent pro-Israel bias,” a trend FAIR has previously documented (2/22/21). According to the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (12/30/21), activists were concerned with the Guardian’s “deletion of a large number of comments in response to the obituary which all highlighted Tutu’s condemnation of Israeli apartheid.” The comments were restored upon pressure, the group said, but the original deletion, the group said, still inspired unease.

The Guardian (12/30/21) did eventually publish a piece on Tutu’s Palestine activism, in an apparent response to the media activism.

I had a lot of respect for Nelson Mandela, but just a wee bit more for Desmond Tutu. 👏
