I am frankly amazed at how prickly and snippy Obama is about Sarah Palin, and with what little provocation. I sincerely thought he was a better politician than this. Any political adviser worth a damn knows that you don’t let your Number One scrap with their Number Two, so he’s apparently off the leash and winging it. Bad for him, an all-you-can eat buffet of delightful schadenfreude for me.
Make no mistake about it; the left’s attacks on Sarah Palin’s family are meant to be a Mafia style message to other conservative women — you cross us and we’ll come after your children.
If you want to see how far they’ll go, witness this entry from an anonymous blog dedicated to attacking Trig Palin (I’ll leave it to the netroots to actually link the blog because I’m not going to do it). Yes, that’s right, some liberal out there has actually created an entire blog dedicated to mocking a baby with Down’s Syndrome.
To give you an idea of what the content is like, here’s a screenshot of one of the posts,
No one who does this has any claim to be some sort of moral person. Just a thug with absolutely no center.
Yes – just imagine what would happen if some conservative had compared a female governor to a horse:
It’s a pity Gingrich was not around when the Roman Emperor Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, better known by his nickname Caligula, reputedly named Incitatus as a consul and a priest. Incitatus was his horse.
Interestingly enough, that is what was done by Richard Cohen.
We await the outraged feminist comments and the public lynching of Mr. Cohen.
Well, what did you expect? The whole push by Democrats (aided by McCain unfortunately) has been to criminalize conservatives. So when an ad that links the Messiah to an unrepentant terrorist (see below) what is the Democrat response? Well threaten to have people arrested:
In a letter to station managers, Obama campaign lawyer Robert Bauer wrote: “Your station is committed to operating in the public interest, an objective that cannot be satisfied by accepting for compensation material of such malicious falsity.”
Bauer also wrote to Deputy Assistant Attorney General John C. Keeney, noting that the ad is a “knowing and willful attempt to evade the strictures of federal election law.”
I mean we can’t have people pointing out the fact that The Annointed One knowingly associates with an unrepentant terrorist can we? So tell us oh Wonderous One – what is fasle about this ad?
In the Obama campaign’s own response ad, an announcer states: “With all our problems, why is John McCain talking about the 60s, trying to link Barack Obama to radical Bill Ayers. McCain knows Obama denounced Ayers’ crimes, committed when Obama was just 8 years old.”
So a non-denial denial. America has lots of problems, this is old news, I was just 8, I denounced their actions.
Of course, you decided to launch your political campaign for the State Senate from this unrepentant terrorists living room (and his wife is worse by the way). You continue to work with this ultra-liberal twit who thinks that they didn’t bomb enough. Who was on the front page of the NYT on 9/11 boasting about how he still believed in his cause. A guy who was recently photographed like this:
“It seems they protest a bit too much,” American Issues Project spokesman Christian Pinkston said. “They’re going all of these routes — through threats, intimation — to try to thwart the First Amendment here because they don’t have an argument on merit.”
I just keep wondering why this traitor isn’t somewhere like JAIL:
William Ayers, who was a founder of the 1960s and 1970s radical group the Weather Underground, told FOX News correspondent James Rosen in a candid 2004 interview that he still believed he was “on the side of justice” years after the group’s wave of attacks.
In the interview, conducted three years after the September 11 attacks, Ayers argued the U.S. government had carried out “many other acts of terror … even recently, that are comparable,” and claimed he and his bomb-planting comrades were “restrained” in their actions.
See kids? The US government has carried out many other acts of terror, so blowing up buildings and being a smelly hippie is OK. And is he sorry about what he did?
Explaining how he became a leader of the radical 1960s antiwar group, the Weathermen (and its subsequent fugitive incarnation, the Weather Underground), Ayers was unrepentant about the group’s planting of bombs in the Capitol, the Pentagon, and other sites. “I think I was on the side of justice and ultimately it will be seen that way,” Ayers said. “I don’t think our move was so much towards violence.
Yes, its not violent to blow up the building housing the legislature of your government. And after all, they didn’t want to actually stand up in public for what they believed. They might have to defend themselves:
“We didn’t want to — we looked at the conspiracy trial [of the Chicago Seven], which we were very close to, and we didn’t want to spend two years defending ourselves. That seemed like a complete waste of energy and time. And so we said to ourselves, ‘What are we going to do?’… We saw the movement either being targeted like [Black Panther leader] Fred Hampton and shot in the head, or targeted like the Chicago Seven, dragged into federal court, where they had to spend zillions of resources and energy and people-hours defending themselves against this completely corrupt government and this completely corrupt Justice Department on this completely corrupt charge.
“So, yeah, we, we found that an appalling alternative. And so we set about building a clandestine organization. And the whole point was to survive them and then possibly to take the fight to them against the war and against, against empire, generally …
