Tapping into the core of traditional prejudice? Surely not Hilary Clinton

Or is this lowering the bar in US politics. A view from across the pond certainly looks that way.

Vote for HOPE, not FEAR

Video on

Have we learned nothing from history?

Obamaweblog says

“It was the first time a Democratic candidate has used bin Laden in a campaign commercial in the 2008 race for the White House. The terrorist appears along with images from the stock market crash, the bombing at Pearl Harbor, the Soviet threat, the collapse of the Berlin Wall and Hurricane Katrina as an announcer tells voters the political contest is for ‘the most important job in the world.'”

Using a tactic directly from the Republican play book, an ad from Hillary Clinton’s campaign uses fear in an attempt to scare the American people. It was an alarming trend when Republicans did it, but a Democrat using it against a fellow Dem spells trouble. One hopes that the average voter will not throw away logic when confronted with such an Orwellian message.

Clinton girl: “reject politics of fear”

Watch the video, please!

Who do you think, has what it takes? Is indeed an interesting question for the world and not just for America.

However, we of the rest-of- the-world, can only watch, as the horror unfolds.

Hilary Sells Fear, Should Tears Fail

In her determination to re-enter the White House.  But this time around, as the President rather than the wife in the bedroom, while her husband the President was being relieved.

Even from far off UK, this stinks;  like pig shit on a newly ploughed field.

Interesting song on

With refernece to the Clinton Ad Campaign:

The stern male narrator quotes wartime president Harry Truman’s famous political maxim, which Clinton has repeatedly invoked on the campaign trail: “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.”

“You need to be ready for anything — especially now, with two wars, oil prices skyrocketing and an economy in crisis,” the narrator says. “Who do you think has what it takes?”

The 30-second broadcast does not mention Obama by name, and the Clinton campaign denied it was hurling a negative attack on the Illinois senator after a debate last week in which he complained about a barrage of hostile questions.

“It is entirely a positive ad,” Clinton’s new chief strategist Geoff Garin told reporters.

“It states why Hillary Clinton is the right choice to be president of the United States now. We’re at a moment where we need a president who’s got the strength and knowledge to take on very tough challenges,” he said. Source

 

Incidentally, this is the same person who is named after Sir Edmund Hilary, allegedly!

Fitna! Or fit for discussion? ‘I don’t hate Muslims. I hate Islam’

Says Holland’s, bottle blond politician, Geert Wilders.

The MP whose film FITNA has fuelled the debate on race in Holland.  He wants an end to mosque building and Muslim immigration.

Is irrational fear, a disease and is there a cure?

Freedom of speech means, we accept his right to hold his views regardless of how ridiculous it might sound. There is nothing new for White Supremacist to say, except to try and attempt a reaction.

If he’s looking for publicity he’s got it, at least the discussion is out in the open.

This article appeared in the Observer on Sunday February 17 2008 on p40 of the World news section. It was last updated at 00:06 on February 17 2008. Ian Traynor met him in The Hague.

A TV addict with bleached hair who adores Maggie Thatcher and prefers kebabs to hamburgers, Geert Wilders has got nothing against Muslims. He just hates Islam. Or so he says. ‘Islam is not a religion, it’s an ideology,’ says Wilders, a lanky Roman Catholic right-winger, ‘the ideology of a retarded culture.’

he wants the European Judaeo-Christian tradition to be formally recognised as the dominating culture, or Leitkultur.

‘There is no equality between our culture and the retarded Islamic culture. Look at their views on homosexuality or women,’ he says.

CONTENT YOU COULD NOT DISPUTE

Planes flying into World Trades Centre on 9/11

Graphic images from the bomb attacks on London in July 2005 and Madrid in March 2004.

Pictures of a woman being stoned, scenes from a beheading and images of the Dutch director Theo van Gogh, who was murdered by a radical Islamist in 2004, are also included.

And pictures appearing to show Muslim demonstrators holding up placards saying “God bless Hitler” and “Freedom go to hell”.

The film shows a young girl in a headscarf making derogatory comments about Jewish people.

It also displays a graph of the growing number of Muslims in the Netherlands and Europe.
