Obama’s ‘association’ with the Weathermen

October 15, 2008 at 12:25 am (conservative bitchslapping, My personal opinion, Politics, Racism, Republicans being stupid) (, , , , , , , , , )

The latest of Republican smears against Obama is his link with former terrorist William Ayers, part of the Weathermen, an Anti-Vietnam extremist group.  This association stems from a 1995 meeting at a luncheon, and the two men serving on an anti-poverty board.  However, the right wing spin machine would have you believe that Obama supported terrorist activities that were committed when he was just a small child.  Even the head prosecutor of the weathermen case says this is bullshit, as he stated in a letter to the New York Times this past friday.

As the lead federal prosecutor of the Weathermen in the 1970s (I was then chief of the criminal division in the Eastern District of Michigan and took over the Weathermen prosecution in 1972), I am amazed and outraged that Senator Barack Obama is being linked to William Ayers’s terrorist activities 40 years ago when Mr. Obama was, as he has noted, just a child.

Although I dearly wanted to obtain convictions against all the Weathermen, including Bill Ayers, I am very pleased to learn that he has become a responsible citizen.

Because Senator Obama recently served on a board of a charitable organization with Mr. Ayers cannot possibly link the senator to acts perpetrated by Mr. Ayers so many years ago.

I do take issue with the statement in your news article that the Weathermen indictment was dismissed because of “prosecutorial misconduct.” It was dismissed because of illegal activities, including wiretaps, break-ins and mail interceptions, initiated by John N. Mitchell, attorney general at that time, and W. Mark Felt, an F.B.I. assistant director.

As anyone who has a few minutes to do some reading will find out, this %100 retarded attempt to connect Obama to terrorist activities which took place decades earlier is beyond absurd. It would be like trying to connect Bush to Al Queida based on the fact that his father worked with Osama’s relatives as part of the Carlyle group. Of course there is no need to let the truth get in the way of a good smear campaign.

However, since we’re going to play the ‘Guilt by association’ card though, wasn’t Todd Palin (a.k.a. the republican candidate’s running mate’s husband) a member of a group that wanted Alaska to separate from the union (It doesn’t get more Anti-American than that) from 1995 – 2002? Yet Sarah Palin is married to and has kids with this guy. If Michelle Obama was part of such a group, we would never hear the end of it.

Oh yeah, wasn’t McCain trying to get the support of pastor John Hagee, who stated that gays are responsible for hurricane Katrina and Hitler was doing god’s work? That’s as hateful as anything Reverend Wright said, yet he gets a pass on it.  Lets not even get into McCain’s associations with the Keating 5 and Watergare break-in participant Gordon Liddy.  Of course, since Republicans can do no wrong…

Gotta love double standards.

Jacknife On Election 2008

Well, it’s election time again, and both the DNC and the RNC have concluded. The democrats have their pick, and so do the republicans. A lot of noise is being made about McCain’s second in command, Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska whose only experience includes being a mayor for a few years. It’s obvious that the only reason she was picked was that she was a woman, and McCain was trying to sway female voters who were angry that Obama didn’t pick Hillary as his running mate. Of course this would be assuming that female voters were so dense that the only reason they voted for Hillary is because she is a woman. If I were a female, I would actually find this an insult to my intelligence, especially since she is anti-choice, which is an issue many women care about. If Hillary was the Democratic nominee and didn’t pick Barack as her running mate, then McCain would have surely picked someone black as his running mate. If McCain wanted to pick a woman as his running mate, then there are a lot more candidates who are more suitable for the position, for instance, Condeleza Rice.
