Video: Fox-bashing WH mouthpiece names Chairman Mao as her favorite philosopher

posted at 6:42 pm on October 15, 2009 by Allahpundit

Via Ace, a fun fact about Anita Dunn that oddly doesn’t appear in WaPo’s three-page profile of her today. Don’t bother pounding the table about firing her, though: She’s already on her way out, which is precisely why the White House’s gutless brain trust tasked her with being the attack dog against Fox.

Long a shunner of the spotlight, Dunn, who declined to comment for this article, would only sign on in April as an “interim” chief, with an end-of-the-year expiration date on her current tenure. But giving up nominal power in the White House allows Dunn to do the dirty work that ultimately assures her staying power inside the administration.

A source inside the White House, who was not authorized to speak about strategy meetings, said Dunn went out front against Fox first and foremost because it was her job, but also because it potentially gave the administration the opportunity to distance itself from the flap with the Roger Ailes-led news channel once she leaves the communications job.

Her response to the clip? She was joking, of course, playing off some old Lee Atwater bit. The audience laughs at the juxtaposition of Mao and Mother Teresa, but the point she draws from the chairman sure does seem serious. Anyone feeling like giving her the benefit of the doubt? Me neither.

When the Blessed Mother Teresa said, “Go find you own Calcutta,” was NOT telling people to “fight your own tasks” or “go find the thing that is unique to you, the challenge that is actually yours, not somebody else’s challenge,” as Anita Dunn instructed.

Instead, Mother Teresa was promoting a very selfless devotion to others around one, where we are, with what we have, and through Love.

I want you to be concerned about your next door neighbor.
Do you know your next door neighbor?

— Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997)

There are people everywhere that need comfort, protection, care-taking, assistance and love, even some who are comfotable or wealthy in material things

Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for,
for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.

— Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997)

This is not a liberal or leftist ideology. It’s not class oriented or designed to organize a community or rule a nation. And it is certainly not the narcissistic, Machiavellian approach of Mao and Barry and their followers. It’s very conservative and for those of us who are religious, this approach is very religious.

Anita Dunn’s profound misinterpretation of Mother Teresa’s message is incredibly self-serving.

I did scan the pics so I could prop ‘em properly, and for long trips since she did so much pilgrimages and charity work.

Our dear Mother Theresa, (unless her body is uncorrupted) she should be rolling in her grave.

I counted about 42 times she stuck her tongue out before Beck stopped the tape. It was a little tough to count due to the angle of that bar going right across the podium. I figure there were several times her tongue came out of her mouth a good inch and a half or more. I did not give her extra points for tongue stretch.
If you listen carefully, you can actually hear the sound of the tongue licking at times. Now, I did count the sound even if I didn’t actually see the tongue come out. I don’t think that should disqualify my count, though, and I would argue that point if it was contested. If you can hear it you know it’s out there.

Personally I’m a fan of this quote

“Naturally the common people don’t want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY.”

Hermann goering from the SS said it. Since I like it I guess I must be EVIL and a nazi.

If this dysfunctional lunatic was sent out to take down Fox News, the the WH has revealed theselves to be not only communists but incompetent communists hacks at that. I’m afraid Chairman Mao would have executed the whole lot of them…

Certainly wasn’t a joke. Her tongue wasn’t even in cheek…

OK. Booo….

No, you’re not smart enough to be evil.

Not applicable. She didn’t state one of his quotes as a favorite. She clearly stated he was one of her favorite political philosophers. His political philosophy is inarguably collectivist (communist) and demonstrably evil .

That “notorious” New Yorker cover was the closest thing to investigative journalism that the MSM has done in years.

By accident, of course.

Her response to the clip? She was joking, of course, playing off some old Lee Atwater bit.

How is it a “joke” when she goes into a long involved story about Mao?

Cindy Munford on October 15, 2009 at 8:25 PM

You’re right. And even if she was joking about Mao being her “favorite” philosopher, she cited Mao as an example for American High School students to learn from and follow.

However, this is just enough cover for the MSM to spike or bury or explain away this story. This is how they work when they get caught. And this is why Beck, Fox and internet outlets like Hot Air are becoming increasingly essential to exposing the truth. Much of the MSM is either in the tank or they’re slackers.

Not to pick on you Norvell but Goering ran the luftwaffe.
