This is easily the stupidest thing I’ve had to write about all month. Sigh.
Earlier this week Jim Hoft announced that citizens of the 3rd district were going to hold a candlelight prayer vigil outside of Russ Carnahan’s house. It made the news. It wasn’t like it was secret. People wanted to pray that Carnahan would be less hard-hearted and more receptive to the will of the people. A small coffin was brought along so symbolize all of the people who’ve died from rationed, government care. From the video I saw, it was a small, earnest affair.
After our representatives have flouted the law of the land, they’re suddenly shocked that others allegedly have too, be they actual conservatives or Democratic plants (wouldn’t be the first time in a long, documented history of times). The jury is still out but as we’ve seen in the past week, the real angry mob of socialist enforcers like to grab their pitchforks and start witch hunts – the exact same profiling and stereotyping that led to the Gladney beating. I guess some on the left never learn.
I’m left to assume that Carnahan just wanted sympathy from this because it boggles the mind how (or why) someone could twist a prayer vigil into a “threat.” I mean, unless you’re afraid of God and honestly, after voting for legislation that includes (by Kathleen Sebelius’ own video-taped words and her “accounting procedure” admission of last year) means for abortion funding, I would be afraid to answer to God for that charge at the pearly gates.
This is a guy who ignored how myself and other conservatives in this area were threatened last summer simply because we dissented with this administration’s policies. His own mother, Jean Carnahan, threw fuel to the fire and tried to whip the vitriol to a frenzy when she attacked his constituents and said that the “teabagger” remarks “bordered on treason.” This is a man who had one of the most under-reported (not to mention caught-on-tape with police report) hate crimes ever to happen at his town hall and the next morning he denied its existence in a press conference. Now this man is going to add further insult to injury by making up malicious intent for people having a prayer vigil? What does he hope to gain from this?
Meanwhile, in St Louis, a man actually beaten in an act of political violence by Carnahan’s political allies still waits for justice while his attackers feast on workmen’s comp and have expensive criminal lawyers representing them. Carnahan, despite his shockingly weak claims, is safer than any Tea Party protester at an event with SEIU union members.
This is sad. I realized that Russ Carnahan lacked concern for citizens by acting as a stamp for Pelosi and this administration but I thought him at least above going after his own constituents this way.
*Jim Hoft has more
**Carnahan’s offices CONTINUES to lie that there was a coffin left on his lawn:
Hey reporters: Did you ask Carnahan’s people to show you the coffin or a photograph of the coffin?
Of course not. Nor can Carnahan’s people produce the coffin or photo thereof. That’s because there was no coffin left on Russ Carnahan’s lawn.
Now, I wouldn’t put it past Russ and his crew to go make or a buy some coffin and take pictures of it. Anyone could do that.
But ask Sara Howard—a Carnahan aide—where the coffin is now. Ask her to describe it.
