And here in lies yet another proof of their injustices and their manipulative ways of "getting their way" because it is in their own self interest. Never mind the interest of our nation. You see... if Hilary or Joe were to show up to this protest, then the liberals and the dems would have been all over it... but since it's just Palin, they're completely against it... and... and...
and... they will threaten Jewish groups to get their way. When other countries say "dirty Americans", it's pretty clear who they're truly pointing their judgemental fingers at. Oh... it's very, very clear Uncle Sam... they point their fingers at Democrats. I know it doesn't look like it when you listen to their words... but what the Republicans are being accused of is exactly what the Dems are doing.
In the dictionary under the word HYPOCRITE... you will find DEMOCRATS. I never thought this way before... not until THEY started showing their true colors and starting coming out of the closet. What's in that closet? Hate and personal agendas... and other things, but I don't have 12 hours to spare right now.
Wake up America: Democrats Threatened Jewish Groups Over Palin Invite To UN Rally
Sources: Intense Pressure Led To Palin UN Snub
CBS 2 HD Has Learned Democrats Threatened To Attack Jewish Groups' Tax Exempt Status Over VP Nominee Invite
NEW YORK (CBS) ― Hillary Clinton won't be speaking at Monday's anti-Iran rally at the United Nations -- and neither will Republican Sarah Palin or any other politicians for that matter.
The reason? A heated behind the scenes tug-of-war.
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.
"This is insulting. This is embarrassing, especially to Gov. Palin, to me and I think it should be to every single New Yorker," Assemblyman Dov Hikind, D-Brooklyn, told CBS 2 HD.
Sources say the axes were out for Palin as soon as Sen. Clinton pulled out because she did not want to attend the same event as the Republican vice presidential candidate.
"I have never seen such raw emotion -- on both sides," said someone close to the situation.
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."
As for Sen. Clinton, she brushed right past CBS 2 HD's Lou Young when he tried to ask her about the issue on Thursday night.
Lou Young: "Were the organizers of Monday's rally right to depoliticize it?"
Clinton walked past Young, said "Thank you all very much" and started hugging people.
Clinton's people tell CBS 2 HD she intends to make some statement of support for the protestors. She is also expected to attack Ahmadinejad's pro-nuke, anti-Israel stance.
Democrats threaten to kneecap Jewish nonprofits - So if'n all of this stuff is true, how can the liberals look at themselves in the mirror and tell themselves that the conservatives or Republicans are the fascists? How can they even stand to be in the same room smelling the hypocrisy coming from their own pores?
It really wasn't until the last couple of years that the stench reached my nostrils. Republican, Democrat, Conservative, Liberal, etc. - it really didn't matter much to me. That is, until I realize that the Democrats and Republicans of "yesterday" have washed away into silence. Where are they? Are they hiding under a rock somewhere hoping things will turn out for the best?
The Democrats seem to be spending too much time trying to be socialist and the Republicans are spending too much time trying to be mini-liberals. Everyone is leaning left in order to please "just enough people" to get elected. I don't want false profits... I want real leaders who aren't afraid to straighten things out with a huge crowbar. We need a group of people who will slap a few faces and kick a few butts up and down the political hallway.
