As a friend of mine
said earlier today, "The latest argument by the Associated Press is laughable at best and downright predictable at worse. When you cannot dispute the facts, simply scream racism loud enough and pray people will ignore the facts and focus on the bogus charge of racism." And that sums it up perfectly. When one has nowhere to turn, always accuse someone of being that which you are...a shallow and narrow-minded sloth.
From the Associated Press
which most of us call the Assassinated Press:
By claiming that Democrat Barack Obama is "palling around with terrorists" and doesn't see the U.S. like other Americans, vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin targeted key goals for a faltering campaign.
And though she may have scored a political hit each time, her attack was unsubstantiated and carried a racially tinged subtext that John McCain himself may come to regret. [...]
Not hardly, Douglass K. Daniel of the AP. One has to wonder why he is such a sexist. Perhaps Mr Daniel should conjure up some moral fortitude and perform his own research instead of revealing his sexist remarks about Sarah Palin. Here is another sample of his unhinged rhetoric.
[...] Her reference to Obama's relationship with William Ayers, a member of the Vietnam-era Weather Underground, was exaggerated at best if not outright false. No evidence shows they were "pals" or even close when they worked on community boards years ago and Ayers hosted a political event for Obama early in his career.
Obama, who was a child when the Weathermen were planting bombs, has denounced Ayers' radical views and actions. [...]
As we say in Texas, this dog don't hunt.
From the sound of things and reading between the lines of the plethora of pieces written and posted today on this particular subject, one would see that the Leftinistra are woefully in love with Bill Ayers. He is their anti-Americanist and anti-military hero. He tried to eliminate it.
We will burn through the white noise and chaffe here and target the cause and perhaps we will have an effect. William Ayers is an unrepentant domestic terrorist. He may have served time for his crimes but he is by no means rehabilitated nor is he satisfied. As Don Surber
The reason some on the Left love Bill Ayers is that he’s an unrepentant bomber who attacked the Pentagon to try to “end” the war — which is lefty lingo for losing the war.
Barack Obama was given a job by his friend William Ayers. William Ayers was given approximately $50M by his father to run Annenberg Challenge, which is currently under investigation for all manner of "improprieties". Barack was on the board with William Ayers.
William Ayers launched Barack's political career. He also gave him a position and as Chicagoan Politics is infamous for, Barack is guilty by association. There is nothing racist about this unless one is unhinged and in the tank for the beloved Obama.
The Barack Camp just might as well get used to the idea that he is going to be exposed no matter how he tries to stifle
constitutional rights of his opposition. Continuing with Don Surber:
They know if the public associates the two as friends, it is fatal to Obama’s campaign. Republican John McCain plans to make that association.
The nonsense that the two did not know each other is disingenuous at best and a flat out lie at worst.
William Ayers began his Hate America campaign in 1970 and ended in 1981. Fast forward to 2001 and in an interview with the Chicago Magazine
in published in August 2001, William Ayers bared it all for all to see. He bragged about his activities.
In another inteview with the New York Times
, Ayers porclaimed the following:
''I don't regret setting bombs,'' Bill Ayers said. ''I feel we didn't do enough.'' Mr. Ayers, who spent the 1970's as a fugitive in the Weather Underground, was sitting in the kitchen of his big turn-of-the-19th-century stone house in the Hyde Park district of Chicago. The long curly locks in his Wanted poster are shorn, though he wears earrings. He still has tattooed on his neck the rainbow-and-lightning Weathermen logo that appeared on letters taking responsibility for bombings. And he still has the ebullient, ingratiating manner, the apparently intense interest in other people, that made him a charismatic figure in the radical student movement. [...]
The interview was published on 911/01. Barack Obama was 40 years old when Ayers said this and it was 6 years after he met Barack Obama and they did indeed and in fact work together. I cannot be convinced that WIlliam Ayers and Barack Obama never shared social engineering strategies such as Saul Alinsky taught and both embraced.
In another article in the New York Times
, the author tried to paint the scene that neither of the two even knew each other. Barack has previously made that statement inane, false and a lie.
has this to say about William Ayers:
Every time I think of William Ayers, I also think of John McCain, because they are of the same era, and they both believed in the efficacy of violence. According to an article in Friday's New York Times, McCain once said of Ayers, "How can you countenance someone who was engaged in bombings that could have or did kill innocent people?" He had to use that "could have or did" because no one knows if bombs Ayers built actually killed anyone -- let's say that the odds are against it. Likewise, no one knows whether the bombs John McCain dropped on North Vietnam ever killed anyone. According to McCain's biography, "With the outbreak of the Vietnam War, McCain volunteered for combat duty and began flying carrier-based attack planes on low-altitude bombing runs against the North Vietnamese. ...On October 26, 1967, during his 23rd air mission, McCain´s plane was shot down during a bombing run over the North Vietnamese capital of Hanoi." Let's say, given those twenty-three bombing runs, the odds are for McCain having killed some innocents. How can you countenance someone who was engaged in bombings that could have or did kill innocent people, John?
But, of course, John McCain's defense is that he was performing his patriotic duty, and that's what William Ayers would have said, too. I remember the Vietnam War. It was not a war of self-defense that the U.S. had to wage or had to win. It was a war of aggression, a waste of resources, lives, manpower, global good will, and national spirit. And, many would say, it was a war crime. Those who were against it viewed their protests as essential patriotism, a way of correcting terrible choices and profound injustices. [...]
So, it was OK for William Ayers to attack his own country and yes, Jane, William Ayers killed people. That is one of the reasons he was a fugitive from justice. He was a terrorist and using Leftinistra-speech, he was trying to stop the war...very similar to the domestic terrorists we have today acting the identical way.
This whole premise that any and all criticisms of Barack Obama is racist is pure gall on the Nth degree. Tell this man
he is racist. Never mind. He isn't a woman.
I suppose this author
is a racist as well.
