We're now officially one month out from election day and things are looking horrific for John McCain. His failed conservative ideas are tanking among the people and his choice of Sarah Palin has moderates and independents panicking. Liberals were already scared shitless of a McCain Administration from the get go. So the only hope left for the McPalin ticket is to go even more negative and basically be downright nasty. The shadow campaigns talking about Obama being the anti-Christ is nothing compared to what we are about to see. In fact, the smearing has already begun.
From The Pennsylvania Progressive:
A former POW companion of John McCain's, campaigning for him yesterday in Pennsylvania, invoked the holocaust in warning about Barack Obama. Colonel Tom Moe, who occupied the adjacent cell to McCain at the Hanoi Hilton, called Barack Obama a dangerous demagogue whose rhetoric could cause a new holocaust while speaking in Harrisburg at the Republican Party headquarters.
The story was reported by David Spett of Capitaolwire (subscription only) yesterday following the controversial event:"All we have to do is open up the history books and look at what the fruits of demagoguery are," Moe said. "When any individual or group tries to pick up a target of opportunity to blame social problems on ... the results can be catastrophic. And you can choose any point in history that you want."
Asked whether Obama's statements could cause an event like the Holocaust, Moe responded: "If you like."
That's right, a vote for Obama is a vote for fire and brimstone. Of course, there is no proof or substance of any kind to back up what Colonel Moe says. For McCain and friends, it is all about provoking mass fear among the public in hope that the public will vote irrationally. Oh and it is only October 4th, comparisons between an Obama presidency and the Holocaust is just the beginning.
