Rashid Khalidi and Barack Obama

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 19, 2008

It is no secret to anyone who reads this blog to know that I am a firm supporter of Israel. I am becoming increasingly concerned with the people around Barack Obama.
We have all heard about how his pastor has honored ‘Calypso Louis’ Farrakhan as a ‘Great Man.’

Now comes Rashid Khalidi [note the wikipedia article leaves out his employment with the PLO], former director of the WAFA, the official Press Agency for the Palestinian Liberation Organization, a Palestinian Terrorist Group, in Beirut, Lebanon from 1976 to 1982…the latter period where our troops were engaged in combat with the PLO.

Here is an example of some of this man’s radical opinions, according to Campus Watch:

When Palestinian violence garners unfavorable publicity, Khalidi’s response it to blame the messenger, not the murderers. Thus, in response to Palestinians lynched two off-duty Israeli officers on October 12, 2000, Khalidi did not critique the perpetrators of this crime, but railed against the “prostitute” and “cynical” media that dared to show Palestinians triumphantly displaying bloodied hands after the killings. In like spirit, he faults not those Palestinians who erupted in joyous street celebrations at the murders of 3,000 Americans on 9/11, but the media for having the temerity to report these occurrences.

More information can be found, including donations to his campaign by former Weather Underground Leader Dr. William Ayers and PLO Operative Rashid Khalidi at Rezko Watch.

    You’re going to be one of the Swiftboaters this time, eh TP? One of the right-wing smearmongers who will take any half-truth and blow it up beyond all reason.

    Barack Obama! Hussein! Granddaddy’s a Mooslim! Lived in Indonesia! Had dinner with a guy who likes Louis Farrakhan!

    Are you calling him a terrorist, TP? What are you saying?

    Maybe if you’ll make some sort of point that would be helpful.

    I mean, smear away if you want. It’s a free internet, but a substantive point every now and again will help keep my blood pressure down.

    Everything I stated was the truth, and I provided several citations…some of them leading to a pro-Obama site. If you took the time to read through the articles, which I doubt you did…

    What am I saying?
    I said: “I am becoming increasingly concerned with the people around Barack Obama.”

    Your reading comprehension really leaves a lot to be desired, Gordon.

    Your blood pressure is not my concern. It is gratifying that you object to presenting the truth of his association with people, while you have attempted to make much hay out of Vice-President Cheney’s and President Bush’s associations.

    You had better get used to the feeling of having to play defense for a while…I have nearly a gigabyte of information on Barack Obama.

    And, to my knowledge, I have never used his middle name in a mocking way, if at all. I have made a conscious decision not to do so.

    You are priceless!

    Good points TP.

    Nothing wrong in looking over the affiliations, and influences surrounding Mr Obama.

    Now that Mr. Obama is trying to distanced himself from his racists church, that teaches Black Liberation Theology. He’s in the process of trying to sucker the ignorant, uneducated and easily led populous into seeing his socialistic, Marxist policies as “rights” and therefore Constitutional.

    Racist Black Liberation Theology originated in South America. And has decidedly Marxist leanings. And we now have Black Liberation Theology being preached in the black community in North America. It is the same Marxist, revolutionary, humanistic philosophy found in South American Liberation Theology. Thus we see the many policies of Barack Obama coming right out of socialistic Marxist philosophy.

    And once again, insinuating that the Swift Boat Vets were lying cannot be backed up with facts. I’m still waiting, after almost four years for the nations media pundits, and news magazine analysts from every network to prove they were lying. There were even some on Fox that said they were doing research to prove some of the SB’s allegations were untrue. I guess the research has been really difficult, as after several years of waiting, they’ve not been able to come up with anything.

    Thank you for pointing out that the left thinks of swift boating as lying. I took it to be a complement to be associated with those fine veterans…which brings me to “Gordon, Are you accusing veterans of being liars?”

    I’m not serious with that charge, because I realize it’s absolute absurdity…same as your worthless accusations in this previous post.Gordon feels no compunction to speak bad about veterans if it serves his purpose (which is just like a lefty, just like a progressive, and just like a communist, in that the ends justify the means. If he can denigrate a group of veterans to make a point…it is fine with him. He will then switch hit and try to take my condemnation of a group of veterans behaving badly, and try to say that I mean that about the whole group.
    Gordon is not aware that I am perfectly aware of the left’s fascist use of “Group Identity” or Group Politics” to separate people into groups for the purpose of manipulation. It is classic Marxist-Leninist strategery, and Classic Saul Alinsky strategery.
    THat is why I can call lefties full of hate, because only someone who is a hate-filled person could be so manipulative toward a whole group of people, instead of seeing them as individuals, instead of as a voting bloc.
    It’s about choices, Gordon. And Barack has made some very spectacularly badones that will make him far easier to defeat in November than the Hilda Beast ever would be, and that is saying something…given her high negatives.
    There is a reason Senators seldom become President, and why they typically do not make good Presidents, especially after they had to start standing for popular election, like their colleagues in the House. They once represented their home state, now the Constitution has been altered to make them open to popular opinion, to special interests that often run counter to the interest of their state.
    That is also why this campaign season will be the nastiest fought of them all…especially since McCain-Feingold gives so much power to the 527s to act as attack dogs for their favored candidate.
    Let me tell you a little secret.
    That is where the Republican money has gone this campaign season. We have watched the actions of, and we have learned. And, this should make you wet your pants…we have improved upon their clumsy tactics.

    I’m pretty sure y’all are just crazy.

    Wow Gordon!! Pithy and to the point! And of course, totally banal. I guess that’s to be expected when the facts are not on your side.
