Jim Moran: The GOP would be running on the Taliban ticket in Afghanistan

posted at 7:03 pm on November 2, 2009 by Allahpundit

Mind you, he said this in a swing state where the “Taliban candidate” is currently ahead by 18 points.

At a get-out-the-vote rally in Fairfax County, Moran said: “I mean, if the Republicans were running in Afghanistan, they’d be running on the Taliban ticket as far as I can see.”

Moran was talking about Republicans Robert F. McDonnell for governor, Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling and state Sen. Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II, who is running for attorney general. By some accounts, the three represent the most conservative Republican ticket to run in Virginia in many years. Moran’s comments clearly were aimed to motivate Democratic voters to turn out on Tuesday and vote blue.

According to WAMU, McDonnell spokeswoman Crystal Cameron called Moran’s remarks “negative” and “vicious.”

Wikipedia has a nifty list of some of Moran’s greatest hits (literally!) in case you want to refresh your memory. This sort of demagogic vaudeville doesn’t bother me coming from Moran any more than it does coming from Teacups, so why bother linking it? For two reasons. One: GOP Rep. Virginia Foxx said something similarly stupid today about ObamaCare being a more dire threat to America than any terrorist, which should come as news to anyone who’s worried about, say, Iranian nukes. But count on the left to have a politically calculated panic attack over that, even while Moran’s casually dismissing Bob McDonnell as some sort of nascent Mullah Omar. And two: Matt Welch was totally right this morning when he called Jesse Walker’s piece about the paranoid style in center-left politics an essential read. I linked it a bunch of times when it first came out but Frank Rich’s self-parodic op-ed about GOP “Stalinists” yesterday and Moran’s babbling about the Taliban today gives me an excuse to link it again. The conservative revival that’s playing out right now in NY-23 isn’t just a story of grassroots activism, it’s a story of the almost literally unbelievable vilification of that activism that began with the DNC’s “angry mobs” ad, continued with Harry Reid’s coinage of “evilmongers” and lesser Democrats’ invocation of “political terrorists” to describe the townhall protesters, and lives on now with Frank Rich-type op-ed dreck. Prepare yourself for the predictable media reaction to a Hoffman win tomorrow by reading Walker’s piece. Like I say, it’s essential.

Then he can’t see past his own nose or his bigoted self-righteous ideology.

Can you imagine a Republican saying something like this? The Left’s cries of ‘how dare you question our patriotism’ would be MSM headlines for a week.

Did conservatives do the Rodney King riots? Did conservatives burn down Newark, NJ, in the 60s? Do conservatives throws rocks and bottles at police all over the world during G20 conferences? Did conservatives burn down college buildings during the Vietnam War, and shoot at Nation Guard troops?

WE know the truth, those of us who aren’t libtard trolls. All others are liars.

Of course the two are just the same!

One: GOP Rep. Virginia Foxx said something similarly stupid today about ObamaCare being a more dire threat to America than any terrorist, which should come as news to anyone who’s worried about, say, Iranian nukes.

Actually, they are both about equal in threat since Americans will die either way. The difference is: ObamaCare is a slow death, and an Iranian nuke is quick. Pick yer poison.

Normally I am happy to see the lefties engaged in the nervous blather borne of desperation. But in Obama’s America and it’s attendant coterie jack-booted ACORN/SEIU/WFParty, the urge to tilt the election in their favor amy actually spoil the results. When backed into a corner and desperate, are when Koll-Aid induced minions can be the most dangerous.

On the other hand such tactics, if caught red-handed, could be a boone to revealing the true nature of Team Obama. Especially somewhere like NJ where such corruption is more or less common place, the confidence to carry on as business as usual could lead to brazen actions resulting in carelessness that might then be capitalized on.

Too hard to call that.

Hoffman, and McDonnel look to have bagged the cat, NJ is the crown jewel the makes the tri-fecta oh so sweet. With his team on the ground calling the shots, his repeated apppearances on Corzines behalf, there is no way Obama can after the fact claim he is not all-in on this race. That dog won’t hunt.

A defeat in bluest of blue NJ is not only a rejection of the progressive movement & the DNC, but it castrates the Obama agenda that could render him as lame-duck status not even a year into his 1st/last term. Boo-Yah!

On the flip side this would instill even greater desperation and raise the stakes in 2010. With all the asscociated dangers mentioned in the above.

Then if ’10 goes down the tubes for them, in ’12 it’ll be double-down, all-in, the whole enchilada, all the marbles and every other euphamism in the book, There will be no telling the lengths they will go to at that point. Things could get so sketchy as to be surreal.

I now have an all new appreciation of Confucious’ “May you live in interesting times.” not necessarily meaning a good thing. We are most certainly in interesting times, for better or worse!

This is good, coming from a man whose made remarks that even Pelosi had to apologize for (from CNN):

“If it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community for this war with Iraq, we would not be doing this,” said Moran, whose remarks were first reported by the Reston Connection newspaper. “The leaders of the Jewish community are influential enough that they could change the direction of where this is going, and I think they should.”

“I should not have singled out the Jewish community and regret giving any impression that its members are somehow responsible for the course of action being pursued by the administration, or are somehow behind an impending war,” Moran said.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, released a statement Tuesday critical of Moran’s comments.

“Congressman Moran’s comments were not only inappropriate, they were offensive,” Pelosi said. “He has properly apologized. His comments have no place in the Democratic Party.”

Firefly_76 on November 2, 2009 at 7:40 PM

That’s right, moron. We’re the ones trying to force an unpopular and unconstitutional power grab of the medical industry down the throats of America; we’re the ones dispatching thugs to townhall meetings and putting dissenters in the hospital; we’re the ones establishing a new elite of unelected and unvetted “czars” to set public policy and allocate billions of dollars of taxpayer money to “transform” America; we’re the ones seizing and nationalizing large swaths of private enterprise; we’re the ones organizing secret conference calls between the White House and artists to contrive propaganda; we’re the ones slandering private citizens to prevent their participation in certain businesses; we’re the ones libeling broadcasters who challenge our views and dare report massive scandals involving our closest allies.

And we’re the ones who can’t stop calling our political opponents “the Taliban.”

Congresscritters represetn their districts but what they say and vote on affects us all, for we’re all Americans. On that basis, I challenge him, a common Citizen who’s been called a terrorist by some F-nuts a thousand miles away.

He lies and hides behind a ‘local’ constituency, trying to insulate himself from the rest of the Nation, from the rest of us. That’s a fake game long overplayed, and I won’t play it his way. He lies, while I won’t.

I remember so much of that thing from years ago.

But, as was once said to me, Americans are a mongrel people. We have a history of our grandparents coming here on ships, in steerage class, to make new lives.

Those people worked in sweatshops and muscled their pushcarts day after day, and taught their children (our parents) the difference between Hell and liberty.

Then our parents prospered in the 50s, after that commie ratfuck Roosevelt. The only thing that stopped him was WWII. After he dropped dead at long last, America prospered.

We have a history of freedom and an inbred disdain for government. While we have a fight on our hands against the libs, they have a bigger one against us.

We’re not in a trap. The Enemy Party is. Our problem is when and how to spring it.

I’d like to thank all the Left Wing Socialists who overused the nuclear option and, rather than opting for rational debate – jumped right to demonization and character assassination to have their way. Because of you – the rhetoric of the left is no longer resonating with the American people. In fact – your continued use of the nuclear option only moves more people to our side.

Please keep up this tactic!

Libs truly believe they hold the highest of moral grounds. They’ll never stop calling us Nazis because they believe we are. Yet, they hate Jews and think black Americans can’t accomplish a thing without their ‘help’.

That’s Nazism at it’s core.

Let’s see if I understand what his point is …

If you support and defend the sanctity and value of human life you’re the “Taliban”.

But if you support killing babies and grandma while having the government pay you to do it you’re “progressive”.

If you want more freedom you’re the Taliban. Less, you’re progressive.

Fair and secret elections: Taliban
Elections by intimidation: progressive

Free speech: Taliban
Fair (as determined by others) speech: “progressive”

This don’t make sense. Seems he’s got it back-wards. Was he talking into a mirror?
