Last week, Shrillary canceled an appearance at today’s pro-Israel, anti-Ahmadinejad rally in New York when she found out Sarah Palin would be there. Soon afterwards, Palin was rudely disinvited. A local CBS affiliate — hardly in the tank for McCain — explains why: Dems threatened to sic the IRS on the organizers if they let Saracuda speak.
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,” [Assemblyman Dov] Hikind [D-Brooklyn] 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.”
Imagine what it will be like when they have control of the White House.
