First John Hagee came for the Catholics. And John McCain did nothing.
Then the pastor went after the gays. Again, Republican presidential hopeful McCain did nothing.
Then Hagee said that Adolf Hitler and his Nazi henchmen were performing God’s will. And that’s when John McCain did something.
Yes, it’s true. John McCain has denounced serial psycho pastor John Hagee’s endorsement, for which McCain fought so hard. When asked about Hagee’s Hitler comments, which were unearthed yesterday, McCain sent out the following response:
Obviously, I find these remarks and others deeply offensive and indefensible, and I repudiate them. I did not know of them before Reverend Hagee’s endorsement, and I feel I must reject his endorsement as well.
McCain’s denouncement falls a little short, however, since Hagee actually rescinded it after yesterday’s story broke. Wrote the pastor,
Ever since I endorsed John McCain for president, people seeking to attack Senator McCain have combed my records for statements they can use for political gain. They have had no qualms about grossly misrepresenting my position on issues most near and dear to my heart if it serves their political ambitions.
I am tired of these baseless attacks and fear that they have become a distraction in what should be a national debate about important issues. I have therefore decided to withdraw my endorsement of Senator McCain for President effective today, and to remove myself from any active role in the 2008 campaign.
McCain’s holy woes are far from over, however. The heat’s now on another Bible-toting backer, Rod Parsley, who called Islam “anti-Christ” and referred to Mohammed as “the mouthpiece of a conspiracy of spiritual evil.” Parsley, of course, also uses his pulpit to take on the gays. Notice a pattern?
Parsley is a real screamer: Demanding that we needed to kill all (1/5 of the earths pop) moslems. He doesn’t think any better of us.
Talk about hitching your wagon to a fart. Bush may be on the way out but the The Christian crazies are feelin’ like they got Gawds baptism from brother Rove and the republican plotsters.
Recall the whole embroglio about Bush’s “crusade” and walkin and talkin with God, way back whenever the fuck it started. Well, they were legitimized in a way that those rednecked poltroons never imagined. I can just see McCain tryin to fight his way free of all that maddness as he tries to ‘distance’ from Bush. Lol
I think that all of Roves lies fell on fallow land that’s currently overfertilized.
And what about Sen. Liebermann who came to Hagee’s defense on national TV? I would think this latest brush-up would cause a change of heart for him.
I think Hagee’s people need their own candidate, someone to syphon off the crackpot vote from the Republican party, so that the Democrat can win easily. Here’s hoping. Oh Lord Hear our Prayer!
hagee says “…blah blah blah…near and dear to my heart…blah blah blah”
He thinks he has a heart? He is deluded.
I have always said that with time and patience, the world would see
what these “fundamentalist Christians” are made of. One thing I believe is that we are entering a new era and with it everything is exposed. Because of the intense media we see almost every move a person makes. I do think America will wake up, I don’t know how long its going to take but I do have faith that it will.
Although I could never vote for him, I appreciate McCain cutting ties with these two loonies. I blame the IRS for letting these so called “christian charities” continue to raise funds under a non profit tax status designation and not pay taxes on the donations.
McInsane is a whore. He will blow anyone for a vote. Then he will toss them like a dirty old shirt.
Todd, you’re right on the mark about out McCain but I’d like to know why you dislike him so much more than Obama or whatâ€™s her face, you know, the loser – Billary Clinton. Obamaâ€™s in and out of bed with christian bigoted vermin like Mary Mary and his very own spirit guide, the born again ex-gay Rev. Donnie McClurkin. Billary Clinton constantly being interview by CBN and she prefers the â€œwhite’ vote. Billary is admired by Pat Robertson, Rupert Murdoch of Faux New (who gave her a hundred grand)and fellow Senators Brownback (Brownshirt?) of Kansas and Santorum, ex of Pennsylvania.
All three candidates are obstinate opponents of same sex marriage, all three plan on staying in Iraq for years and all three are union busters who voted for NAFTA.
Why just get angry at one of them? Iâ€™m asking because lots of us think itâ€™s a rotten thing to have to choose between â€œIntolerably Worst, Dangerously Worst, and Incredibly Worst.â€ We’d like a little variety when we’re called on to commit political suicide.
Bill Obama had NOTHING to do with NAFTA. That was The Clintonistas!
Mr C – you’re wrong. â€œEarlier this week, we saw Sen. Hillary Clinton (D) promise to call a “time out” on passing NAFTA-style trade deals if she is elected president – a promise that was made just four days after she announced she would be casting a vote to enact a vote for the Peru Free Trade Agreement – the latest NAFTA-style trade deal moving through Congress.
Now, today, Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) is criticizing Clinton for being a part of the previous administration that passed NAFTA-style trade deals. It’s fair criticism, of course – but not if you yourself have already promised to vote for the same NAFTA-style trade policy in the near future. Yes, Obama’s criticism comes just a few weeks after Obama himself declared he, too, would be voting for this same NAFTA-style trade policy moving through the Senate.â€
www dot alternet dot com and search for story number 68032 (sorry but Queertys computer defenses shoot me down if I provide links).
This bill, which he DID vote for, was opposed by
US and Peruvian unions, humanitarian groups and environmentalists, which means it a typical piece of trash from the Congressional Democrats, who if you recall, refused to scrap DOMA and DADT but did manage to scrap ENDA and the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes bill.
Obamadolotry is based on the fact that he hasnâ€™t time to acquire an arm long rap sheet like Billary and McCain, but given time…
Gawd almighty: just read that if the choice is between McCain and Clinton, Ann Coulter (the Rush Limbaugh of womanhood) will back Clinton!!! get that you “liberals”
