Bachman Derangement

I had stumbled across a news story about former governor Tim Pawlenty has hired former Arkansas and TV personality Mike Huckabee's daughter. It does make sense to hire Sarah Huckabee Sanders if Pawlenty wants to connect to Mike Huckabee's base. Though what did catch my eye was one of the comments, which acts as the springboard for this post.

"I would really like to know what it is about Michelle Bachmans former law professor and mentors comment about "Seeing Jesus carrying an M-16," that you people at the star tribune will absolutely not print. I have mentioned it in several comments, and you never print them, why not? He was her professor at Regent U, and it has been reported in Rolling Stone Magazine."

First off the poster's name is appropriate, they seems very rabid. In the rest of the comment, they challenge the Star Tribune to print those allegations. I must give the Star Tribune kudos for having sense to not run with this story since it could open a can of worms Obama supporters do not want to open. Rabiddem is attacking Bachman over a quote that is attributed to one of her law professors.

Funny how all Obama supporters basically scream at anyone who brings up Rev. Jeremiah Wright and his crusade from the pulpit against America, they say Wright's views are not those of Obama even though Obama's children were baptised by Wright and he sat in that church for 20 years listening to Wright.

We also see the same foot stomping and spittle flecked screaming when William Ayers and his wife are brought up. Obama and Ayers are neighbors and have interacted in the same social circles. Obama supporters want everyone to ignore how Ayers was a terrorist bomb-maker who managed to kill six of his comrades in the revolution when their IED detonated accidentally.

If Bachman is pilloried and savaged over comments from her law professor, then for 2012 Obama becomes fair game over his associations with Wright and Ayers. So I am granting Star Tribune the benefit of doubt that they know what a landmine this M-16 quote can be for their miracle worker Obama.

Its called the game of guilt by association. Democrats like to practice it against Republicans. But to apply it impartially to their candidates, well we have seen how they react - badly.

The American educational system has successfully indoctrinated at least three generations now to be totally unable to rationally debate complex issues. Try to find a political discussion that does not employ cutesy nick-names, ad hominem attacks, innuendo, guilt by association, baseless sloganeering, and disassociated barrages of unrelated accusations.

Did I mention evil corporate jet owners?

I think you covered all the bases there Ed. Easier to mislead infants with shiny toys than to reason with someone well versed. So they raise intellectual infants in the re-education camps.

Personally I prefer the vision of Jesus carrying an M1 Garand, but that's just me. :-)

Anna said...

M-1 Garand huh? That works until everyone hears the *ping* saying you just shot your eight rounds. ;)
