>Obama: "What? You Disagree With Me? You’re Racist"

>From the Desk of:David Martin, Executive Vice President

MEDIA RESEARCH CENTER
8/20/2010
Don,

The building of a mosque overlooking the site of the 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks has outraged Americans everywhere. Not surprisingly, our President and the media have completely missed the point. Just as with the Arizona immigration law, the “news” media and the President have decided that anyone who disagrees with their far-left views is a racist.
The backers of The Cordoba project, as the Ground Zero Mosque is known, claim that it is designed to bring peace and understanding between East and West. Polls show that most Americans who are not part of the liberal media don’t believe this and view it as a slap in the face to those who lost loved ones in the terrorist attacks.
The media have put little effort into exposing the truth about Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the man behind the mosque project who once said the US was “an accessory to the crime” on 9/11. The media could focus on the fact that no one will say where the funding for this $100 million project is coming from. Instead the media focus on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s andBarack Obama’s newfound love for religious freedom.
The liberal elites in the “news” media and Washington, DC like to characterize this controversy as the bigoted rabble being paranoid about a foreign culture we do not understand. This is far from the truth. The American people are aware that conquering Islamic armies built mosques at the site of battles they won. One of the greatest battles was fought in the city ofCordoba, Spain. Cordoba marked the furthest progress made by Islamic armies, at their height over one thousand years ago. Cordoba is also the name of the mosque that Feisal Abdul Rauf wants to build at Ground Zero, a location that Islamist terrorists worldwide consider to be the site of a great victory in the Islamic Jihad against the West.
Since the so-called “news” media aren’t asking Americans why they are overwhelmingly opposed to this, we did.
With cameras in hand, the Media Research Center traveled to New York City to ask New Yorkers why they are opposed to this mosque.
+ + + We went to New York City, now we need you to go to a local town hall meeting!
In addition to our efforts to arrest the media’s attempts to demonize those who object to the NY mosque, we need you, Don to ask these same questions of your elected officials!
Get your lawmakers on record about the Ground Zero Mosque. Get their thoughts and comments on tape and post it to ourEyeBlast.tv site.
If the liberal news organizations will not ask the tough questions, we must take action ourselves to get to the truth – to expose the true nature of those guiding our nation.
Call your lawmakers today, and find out when they have scheduled their town hall meetings in your community and attend! If they aren’t holding town hall meetings, find out when and where you can see them.
Then get them on record!
Don, the only way we can stop the madness that is taking place throughout our nation is to take action. Together we must identify those who don’t speak for the people, and expose them for the world to see.
Thank you for being a vital part of what we do at the MRC.

 

David

P.S. Forward this message to 20-30 friends, urging them to join with you in taking back our nation and stopping the constant attacks on concervatives by the liberal media.

+ + Help the MRC maintain it’s frontline position in the battle to preserve free speech rights and fight liberal media bias bymaking a tax-deductible gift today. Thank you again, very much.

Vote Now: Elena Kagan and the Supreme Court

Dear Spectator reader,
Thank you for your continued support of The American Spectator. Occasionally, we send emails like this one to introduce our readers to like-minded advertisers and organizations.
Below you will find a special message from The Heritage Foundation.
– The American Spectator
Dear Fellow Conservative,

Take the Poll on Activist Judges

Should Supreme Court justices base decisions on empathy or sympathy rather than the relevant facts and laws?
Should justices interpret the Constitution of the United States to fit their personal preferences?
These are among the important questions to consider as the Senate prepares hearings onElena Kagan’s nomination to a lifetime seat on theSupreme Court.
The left has a long history of using the courts to advance their agenda. In just the past decade, liberals on the Supreme Court argued that:
  • There is no individual right to bear arms;
  • The government can limit free speech by individuals and groups in political debates, while “virtual child pornography” remains protected;
  • Private property can be seized by the government for use by private developers; and
  • “Evolving standards of decency” change the meaning of the Constitution and allow judges to limit law enforcement.
These radical leftist arguments need to be exposed as inconsistent with an original understanding of the Constitution. Our highest law is not an empty vessel to serve the cause of ever-larger government. Yet many on the left believe there is a fundamental “right to health care” — and the Supreme Court could hear a challenge to Obamacare.
Fortunately, there’s an alternative to the liberal march. The Heritage Foundation — America’s leading conservative public policy organization — is vigorously combating the left’s judicial agenda. We’re working to educate lawmakers and candidates on the meaning of the Constitution and the role of judges so we can help shape the debate. We’re refuting the left in the media and in communities nationwide. And we’re getting the text of the Constitution into the hands of millions of Americans.
Are liberals right on judges? Take the poll online now to tell us what you think. And I hope you will consider making a financial contribution to help us advance our work.
As we develop our plans to fight judicial activism and defend the timeless principles of the Constitution, we need the input of aware citizens on these and other important issues. We need to know what matters to grassroots conservatives like you. We want to know what you think of Elena Kagan’s nomination and what you believe should be a judge’s highest priorities.
Though conservatives have reason for optimism in 2010, we have a hard fight ahead of us. The left is still powerful. They still hold the White House and a majority in Congress and they will continue to advance their radical agenda. And with their position threatened in the polls, they may try to ram through even more of their agenda in 2010.
Thank you for your dedication to the conservative cause.
Sincerely, 
Ed FeulnerSignature

>Vote Against Nationalizing Health Care

>Here’s the scenario. You get married to the greatest guy in the world and in a few months you’re pregnant. No problem, you say. You have health care and it covers pregnancy and obstetrics without deductible. You’re living in America, right, nothing can go wrong. But then one day, very close to your child birth, you read that the Senate and House — and President Obama — have passed a new national health care plan which eventually will become a single payer system. It will severely jeopardize what you can get paid and what you can’t. Because it will be an inferior kind of health care — not as liberal as the medical coverage you now have — you may decide not to have more kids. What a shame … to allow a Muslim like Obama (he said it last night, he’s a Muslim and his middle name is Hussein) taking away rights that as an American you thought were inviolable.

Click on over to my Angst Blogger site and read the entire story. We’ve set it up so you can immediately get your Congressman’s phone number to complain. You can also leave comments which we’ll pass on to your representatives in Washington. This may be your only chance to speak up. Obama wants to have socialized health care in place before September. read the article at Angst Blogger
