The Wingnuts have started a Pro-War group!
Sweet Jeebus in a speedo..Ari Fleisher your a friggin’ tool dude..seriously…you are. TPM has an extensive writeup about Ari’s new pro-war site called..oh lawd have mercy..
A new right-wing group called Freedom’s Watch is rolling out a $15 million ad buy across the country. The group, which is backed financially by various big-money donors for President Bush’s past campaigns, is advocating in favor of the Iraq War in what a conservative answer to MoveOn.
The ads feature disabled veterans or the family members of fallen troops, saying that the Iraq War and 9/11 are linked and urging us not to give up in Iraq — or in their words, “surrender.” And another message runs very strong through the ads: That withdrawal from Iraq can/will result in another 9/11.
“They attacked us, and they will again. They won’t stop in Iraq,” one veteran declares, as the screen shows a shot of the smoking Twin Towers. “We are winning on the ground and making real progress. It’s no time to quit — it’s no time for politics.”
I will just say this..I hope Ari’s little gang of bullshit artists suffers the same fate as Fox Noise’s “Half hour NewsHour” tv show..which was recently shit-canned after it’s current run is over. As for the soldier in one of their videos..sad to see your still drinking the BushCo koolaid dude..IRAQ DID NOT ATTACK US ON 9/11..THE SAUDI’S DID. Btw dear reader..they went full tilt by hiring a soldier that lost both of his legs for that video.
As for politicizing the Iraq War..wtf has George Friggin Bush done for his entire second term? Now I have read that the wingnuts at FW are targeting these ads in Republican-held districts so they can shame the Rethugs in office into continuing to support King George’s madness in Iraq.
Oh, I forgot..the yahoo’s at Freedoms Watch have learned how to make YouTube work for them..so you can enjoy all their propaganda video’s at the TPM link. I personally refuse to put their garbage on my blog.
From Politico comes a list of the wingnuts that are running this asylum:
The board consists of Blakeman; Fleischer; Mel Sembler, a Florida Republican who was Bush’s ambassador to Italy; William P. Weidner, president and chief operating officer of the Las Vegas Sands Corp.; and Matt Brooks, executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition.
The donors include Sembler; Anthony Gioia, a Buffalo businessman who was Bush’s ambassador to Malta; Kevin Moley, who was Bush’s ambassador to the U.S. Mission to the United Nations in Geneva; Howard Leach, a former Republican National Committee finance chairman who was Bush’s ambassador to France; Dr. John Templeton of Pennsylvania, chairman and president of the John Templeton Foundation; Ed Snider, chairman of Comcast Spectacor, the huge Philadelphia sports and entertainment firm; Sheldon Adelson, chairman of the Las Vegas Sands Corp. and ranked by Forbes magazine as the third-wealthiest American; and Richard Fox, who is chairman of the Jewish Policy Center and was Pennsylvania State Chairman of the Reagan/Bush campaign in 1980.
