Congressman Maurice Hinchey (D-Moonbat Junction)
As the liberal left has become more radical, the line between “the fringes” & “the mainstream” has gotten progressively more blurry for the Democrats. As a consequence of that, bizarre conspiracy theories that it was once hard to believe any serious person could give credence to, are now being casually tossed around by power players in the Democratic Party.
For example, take Congressman Maurice Hinchey (D-NY)….yeah, you better take him before the men in white coats take him to a nice, safe rubber room for saying this…
“People have been — people in the media have been intimidated. The media has changed in the last four years. People have changed in the last four years. They’ve had a very very direct, aggressive attack on the, on the media, and the way it’s handled. Probably the most flagrant example of that is the way they set up Dan Rather. Now, I mean, I have my own beliefs about how that happened: it originated with Karl Rove, in my belief, in the White House. They set that up with those false papers. Why did they do it? They knew that Bush was a draft dodger. They knew that he had run away from his responsibilties in the Air National Guard in Texas, gone out of the state intentionally for a long period of time. They knew that he had no defense for that period in his life. And so what they did was, expecting that that was going to come up, they accentuated it: they produced papers that made it look even worse. And they — and they distributed those out to elements of the media. And it was only — what, like was it CBS? Or whatever, whatever which one Rather works for. They — the people there — they finally bought into it, and they, and they aired it. And when they did, they had ’em. They didn’t care who did it! All they had to do is to get some element of the media to advance that issue. Based upon the false papers that they produced.
That Karl Rove, he’s a nasty one!
Yes, it was Karl Rove who forged the papers, gave them to a Republican operative, who then passed them on to Bill Burkett, who gave them to CBS where teams of experts poured over them, pronounced them to be dubious, and then ran with them anyway.
It was all part of Karl Rove’s eeeevvviiillll plan! Everything that happens to Democrats? It’s all part of Karl Rove’s master plan, his eeeevvviiillll master plan!
Did you know that Rove sabotaged the engines of Paul Wellstone’s plane, founded the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, and got Jayson Blair hired at the New York Times? It was all Rove! When it rains on the day of a peace march? It’s Rove using his secret CIA weather machine! When a Democrat misplaces his car keys? That’s because Rove’s magical leprechauns move them around! Ever lost a sock in the dryer? Somehow, someway, it’s Rove’s fault, Rove, Rove, ROVE!!!
How long are the responsible Democrats out there going to stand by and allow this sort of nonsense to go largely unchallenged as their own party continues to plunge deeper into the fever swamps of the lunatic left? If you stand aside and let your party be taken over by the likes of Michael Moore, Howard Dean, MoveOn, and their ideological allies like this loon Hinchey, then you will richly deserve the rejection that you will most certainly receive at the ballot box…
