Too bad this didn't come out BEFORE Obama spoke to AIPAC (updated)
An Obama supporter belonging to a group called "Socialists for Obama" posted a long piece on "The Jewish Lobby" right on Obama's presidential campaign website.
Hat tip: Israel Matzav
To say that what this "Socialist for Obama" writes is anti-Semitic, hateful, inaccurate, insulting, idiotic, paranoid tripe is a given.
But when you realize this is on Obama's website, you really have to start wondering about not just the candidate, but people's whose job it is to vet the site and make sure excrement like this doesn't appear.
The fact that it is still there could mean that Obama campaign workers agree with what's written.
A few choice excerpts:
Hey Kids! Let's play pretend...
Let's pretend that this blog post appeared on John McCain's website. Let's pretend it was seen by lefty bloggers. Let's pretend that your average lefty blogger isn't a screaming meemie of an anti-semite but rather a rational human being.
Can you imagine the hue, the cry, and the hue again that would be raised against McCain? The guy would be run out of the race on a rail.
But the Annointed One can get away with this because 1) Lefty bloggers really don't care about this kind of hate speech; and 2) Obamamessiah can do no wrong.
And here are some suggestions on how to battle the "Jewish Lobby:"
This has been on Obama's presidential campaign site since 9:13 Eastern time this morning. It is now after 1:30 and this offensive piece of trash is still up.*
Cause for concern? Or are we going to hear the old refrain (and getting older every day) "These are not my values blah blah blah..."
Simply, remarkably, unbelievable.
* My mistake. This blog has been up since 9:13 PM last night -- and is still up as of 1:45 PM the next day.
Ed Lasky adds:
We hear a great deal about the Obama campaign's internet savvy and the campaign's vast warehouse of money. Why aren't some resources devoted to monitor this type of hate? Can't he care enough to spend some spare change on preventing this type of material?
Doug Ross spotted this first, and Little Green Footballs earlier today found "Jemaah Islamiya for Obama" on the Obama website, and has now updated with the web page we have above.
It looks like we have an awful lot of insensitivity going around at the Obama website. I wonder if they have a Che poster on the wall?
