The strong-arm tactics of the Democrats that prevented Sarah Palin from attending the anti-Iran rally annoyed a number of the Jewish organizers. They were upset, and rightly so, that partisan politics took a front seat to opposing a dictator who has vowed to wipe Israel off the map.
In an effort to keep the Jewish vote heavily Democratic, Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) had the following to say about Palin:
Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.Classy.
Sadly there is nothing more to say, really. The comments concerning Palin have gone beyond even what SNL would do during a parody. I continue to hope for a backlash, but economic matters may overshadow that. If Obama ends up winning, then in some ways these horrific statements will be justified. How sad for society as a whole.
