I think most conservatives have grown used to the mean-spirited and evil ad hominem attacks that the left likes to throw at us. They call us racists, hatemongers, misogynists and other horrible things… and then they expect us to deal civilly with them in return.
And we do… we don’t hold these horrible attacks against their leaders.
But at some point, we have to respond, don’t we?
Just this past weekend in North Carolina where Democrat Senator Kay Hagan faces a tough reelection battle against Republican Thom Tillis, churchgoers were surprised with this grotesque flyer from friends of the Kay Hagan campaign.
Dawn McNair said she was surprised Sunday when her daughter pointed out the background on a political flier urging people to get out and vote.
The front of the flier blares: “Kay Hagan doesn’t win! Obama’s impeachment will begin! Vote in 2014.”
The words are superimposed over a grainy reproduction of a photograph of what appears to be a lynching.
Someone tucked the flier under McNair’s windshield wiper while her car was parked at her church, Kingdom Impact Global Ministries on Murchison Road.
“My daughter said, ‘Mom, look in the background. They’re lynching somebody.’ It’s the lynching of an African-American man,” McNair said.
These are the kinds of non-apologies that we have grown accustomed to; they often come after the slanderous attacks on our character have been lobbed. The Vice President of the country, Joe Biden can say things like “they wanna put you back in chains,” and no one bats an eye. No liberals decry, no liberals defend us, and no liberals speak anything but half-assed banalities like… “That’s what he feels.”
Erick Erickson at RedState reminds us that it’s not just Kay Hagan and Joe Biden who like to play these “Republicans will bring the racist apocalypse” games.
… a flyer was found on cars parked at a Fayetteville, NC church for Sunday service. The flyer had a picture of a lynching. The words on top of the picture were “Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC)4% Doesn’t Win. Obama’s Impeachment will Begin!”
The media has yet to ask Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC)4% to denounce the flyer. In fact, Democrats in North Carolina are embracing the flyer. They must have black voters turn out for them.
Back in 1998, two weeks before the Georgia general election, flyers began circulating in black communities around metro Atlanta with pictures of burning crosses and KKK members. The text in the flyers claimed Georgia would see a return to that if black voters did not vote.
Just a few years ago, Congressman Rep. John Lewis (D-GA)11% and then Mayor Shirley Franklin of Atlanta participated in an advertisement for John Eaves, the Democrats’ candidate for Chairman of the Fulton County Commission. Rep. John Lewis (D-GA)11% claimed that if Eaves lost, Republicans in charge would be more dangerous than fighting off firehoses and “the dogs in the street” in the Civil Rights era.
I guess this is what happens when you can’t debate your opposition on the merits of your ideas. The Democrats have been backed into a corner because all of their ideas have been so terrible, and now all they can do is call us these horribly disgusting names.
Hopefully, the American people are smart enough to see past all the racist demagoguery to the truth – Democrats are morally and intellectually bankrupt and conservatives should be leading us into the future.
