. . . somebody will do it for you.
Yeah, yeah, I know, FOX hires imposters yadda yadda yadda.
The fact is the vast majority of Americans will never attend an OWS protest (or a Tea Party.) They will depend on the images they see. If the ONLY images they see are freaks and haters, what else could they think?
Would it kill them to wave a few American flags?
Eric Kleefeld at TPM:
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is firing back at an attack from their counterparts at the NRCC, who released a web video Thursday that accused DCCC head Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) of supporting anti-Semitic demonstrators at the Occupy Wall Street protests.
In an e-mail to the DCCC supporter list, Steve Israel declares: “The extreme right wing has launched an outrageous attack to distract us from their reckless economic policies: They are questioning my commitment to my own religion.”
He also adds: “They’re attacking me to try to silence you — because they think it’s wrong that you’re frustrated and even angry about what Republicans are trying to do to this country. The personal attacks they’ve launched on me for standing with you are nothing in comparison to the hardships faced by middle income families across America every day.”
When asked for comment by TPM, NRCC spokesman John Randall gave us this statement:
Perhaps DCCC Chairman, Steve Israel, should direct his outrage and indignation towards the Occupy Wall Street protesters highlighted in this video. In his appeal, Obama’s top Lieutenant does not condemn even one act or anti-Semitic statement made by those he stands with.
The DCCC can do their best to distract from the fact they have urged their supporters to stand with the Occupy Wall Street protesters, but their efforts will fail – just like their fiscal policy.
