That's a Nice Tax Exempt Organization You Got There. Hate to See Something Happen to It

A reader sent this link to an exclusive CBS 2 HD report that says Democrats threatened the tax exempt status of Jewish organizations involved in the rally if they didn't pull Sarah Palin's invitation:

Sources tell CBS 2 HD that a decision to disinvite Palin from the high profile rally after Clinton pulled out in a huff came as the result of intense pressure from Democrats...The groups sponsoring the rally against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaking at the UN were reportedly told, "it could jeopardize their tax exempt status" if they had Palin and not Clinton or Democratic VP candidate Joe Biden on hand.

So all politicians were disinvited, most prominently, Palin.

"It's an absolute shame that this has happened," Hikind said. "To threaten organizations ... to threaten the Conference of Presidents that if you don't withdraw the invitation to Gov. Palin we're going to look into your tax exempt status ... that's McCarthyism."

Another Jewish group tried to step into the breach by inviting Palin to a different protest a day earlier.

"I'm absolutely appalled at the behavior of the Democrats," said Bob Kunst of Defenders.net. "I'm a Democrat and for the first time in my life I'm going to vote Republican. I can't take it anymore."

This is the politics of thuggery and intimidation. Let's not forget, Obama recently told his followers to argue with political opponents and get in their faces. Also, he's all for trampling his critics' free speech rights. When David Freddoso and, separately, Stanley Kurtz were on WGN radio to discuss his book The Case Against Barack Obama, Obama instructed his followers to interfere with the shows by flooding the radio station with phone calls and emails in an effort to prevent these two men the right to express their views. He doesn't have any problem with shutting down those he disagrees with because he thinks his ideas are so important that he's morally justified in shutting up his critics.

Steve Schippert wrote a great post earlier today in which he writes that Democrats, Obama ops specifically, were behind Palin's being disinvited from the rally. He was right.

For the love of GOD, where is a repub with a freaking spine !?! They kill our troops/coverts/spec ops people with senate staff leaks to traitors in the marxist press. They call our men and women in uniform nazis, gulag thugs, terrorists, the new management of abu graib, and on and on adnauseum. They declare the war in Iraq lost and then ACTUALLY DO THINGS to insure that loss. They invade the privacy of private citizens' credit histories and e-mail.

Don't even get me started on the Goebbeles style cultural crap, I just want to know when (or if, I guess is the real question) a republican will grow the stones to treat these treasonous bastards (who have the blood of countless thousands on their hands, not to mention cases like this where they shatter lives and/or silence free speech) for the criminals they are -as they treat our side over imaginary/trivial matters- and serve them with soebpeanas and file criminal charges.

A cousing of Bush Derangement Syndrome, this is when an Obama supporter becomes obsessed with hating those who oppose Obama, to the point where they see grand conspiracies and ascribe every problem in the world to the evil, nigh-omnipotent forces arrayed against Barack Obama.

Not that I ever thought Hillary's silence on Palin constituted any manner of support for a woman, any woman, to rise to such a position. But I was beginning to think that she was using common sense in withholding an opinion. But it got to be just too much for her and now she's gone and ignited a firestorm, essentially doing exactly the opposite of what she so carefully avoided.

All she can hope for now is that the memory of this will fade in four years. She will never be able to pretend to speak for all women again.

Screw you, I will regardless.

Say you or one of yours suffered a heart attack and in the process of calling 911 couldn't get thru for over 10 minutes.

Why?

Because the line was tied up with nitwits, and many such nitwits have been documented, calling about their pizza being late in delivery, what the weather will be, etc etc.... meanwhile...

Your frickin' dead because of the delay in getting a prompt response from 911 and medical services.

Now, forgive me for saying this, this example will fly right "over your head," it was a waste of time because you're obviously dumber than asshats whining about late pizzas to 911.

But I feel better. And really, that's what the libs, dems, leftists, progressives, libturds and moonbats all want me to feel, better.

The program in question is a discussion/call-in show. BO's national campaign h.q. is located right down the street from the studio.
BO's campaign refused an invitation from the producer of the show to participate.
Instead, they immediately contacted thousands of supporters. The resulting phone and email
spam effectively locked up the call-in segment. Each call was the same mix of talking points and abuse, right from the instructions. They did this twice. Kind of like a DoS attack on a radio station. WGN has very high Arbitrons in Chicago, and it seems that BO's bots can't allow discussion they deem blasphemous to occur over "our"(sic) airwaves. It's really simple, see?

Hey,

I challenge you.If you truly have a mind that is capable of examining the real, real truth, please look at this article that came out today that managed to slip by the stranglehold of the MSM. Do a search for "THE DRUMBEAT" by William Staneski. If you come away after reading this and can't reconcile the truth, then we are all lost.

daniel rotter:

"I gave you an example above, you ignored that..."

I ignored it because it's not equivalent to what we're talking about here. All the pro-Obama calls and emails to the radio show that had Kurtz and Freddoso as their guests were "on-topic," since the calls were designed to respond to the anti-Obama claims made by these two individuals. Calling 911 to whine about a pizza delivery is, of course, "off-topic," since that is not a 911 matter.

<a href="http://www.america... (Below threshold)

Here is the William Staneski column from The American Thinker site. Rita Derrick is right, it makes a depressingly accurate case for the reality of the course we have set for ourselves. Reversing our current trend towards moral relativism -and the paradoxical belief that the only truth is that there is no real truth- is probably the most monumental task of our, or any other, time.

It may sound silly, but I think we can start by not letting cliches like, "S**t happens", or, "whatever" to abound in our midst w/o rebutting them, especially as pertains to our youth, and making sure to let people know that you believe in absolutes and the black and white of truth. Creeping marxism demands the dominance of the grey ("..Answering that with any specificity...is above my 'paygrade'...") and hates the clarity of truth ("Life begins at conception.") and the judgement that it infers.

Speak clearly and proudly and don't appologize for your heritage Americans! Knee jerk responses of guilt when confronted by murky headed leftists in everyday life must end now. No more politeness. They aren't polite when they force their neomarxist dogma on our kids in public schools. Engage them just as you do here at the Wizbangblog. Never let the tyranny of the left get away with even the smallest of assumptions that they speak the truth.

It may not be the only truth but, it surely is one of the most important that, the modern incarnation of the American left is based exclusively on lies: wealth redistribution works AND it is good / America as the super power is bad / you are a victim and can only be made whole by the actions of the state / the idea of American exceptionalism is of a bygone era / all cultures/religions are of equal value and none is anymore virtuous than any other, etc. etc.

Fight back Americans, for you are on the frontlines against cultural rot. You and you alone can defeat the mass of grey, swarming leftist hordes who seek to remand us all to the custody of the state. You better believe that is why they instinctively hate Governor Palin. She represents a time that would never have allowed for their existence. A time when self reliance was mandatory. A time when the individual decided to what degree he was to be his brothers keeper. A time when we honored God and were openly thankful for His grace. A time when it was understood that traitors had to be locked up, silenced, and yes, even executed. They claim Lincoln and FDR as their heroes, but would now call them nazis were they to reanimate and lead as no one of this age has the guts to.

You're right, let's charge President Bush with treason for "encouraging the further spilling of American blood" by "daring" the terrorists in Iraq to kill or attempt to kill American soldiers there ("Bring it on!").

If by "everyone," you mean "ridiculous radical rightists who deserve to be mocked and scorned", then you're absolutely right, everyone does know they hate America.

Several of the liberal blogs I read have conservatives contributing to their comments section. I don't see why the reverse situation shouldn't also take place.

That station didn't have to be "knocked off the air." It only had to be swamped with callers of one political stripe, in this case Obama supporters, as to render a balanced discussion impossible.

Ever watch C-Spam call-in shows? They have separate phonelines for Reps, Dems and Indys to prevent such a scenario from ever occurring.

And finally you, from the looks of it, have a complete lack of understanding of what constitutes a blog troll.

I read the whole "Obama action wire" regarding this matter in its entirety, and all it says is that supporters should call in to the program to challenge, in a civil manner, Fredoso. There is nothing in there about how Obama supporters should call in specifically for the purpose of keeping anti-Obama calls from getting through (the implication behind the "to keep others from accessing it" part of your sentence).

"while the show could have a call-in setup like c-span..."

But it doesn't.

"that doesn't excuse the sycophants of The Messiah from jamming the phone lines thus preventing other views from being heard".

Again, you're problem is with the format (which is the format of MOST call-in programs) of the show itself, which allows for the possibility of "jamming" and "other views from being heard".
