Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics

Jewish voters receiving phone calls informing them that Obama is a Muslim

Somebody remind me why I ever supported Senator McCain and the Republican party. From Ben Smith, over at Politico, turns out Jewish voters have been receiving push poll phone calls informing them that Obama is the Muslim Manchurian candidate that will kill them all.

Jewish voters are complaining of a poll that, after confirming their religion, asks a series of questions that appear aimed at alarming Jewish voters, including linking Barack Obama to Palestinian terrorist groups.

Luckily, The New Republic’s Jonathan Cohn got a phone call and took notes:

The leader of Hamas, Ahmed Yousef, expressed support for Obama and his hope for Obama’s victory…

Jimmy Carter’s anti-Israel national security advisor is one of Barack Obama’s foreign policy advisors…

Barack Obama called for holding a summit of Muslim nations exlcuding Israel if elected president…

Now we see just what our buddy Karl has inspired the McCain campaign to do., officially or not. To make it all the more tragic, this is exactly the strategy used against McCain in 2000 to help defeat him in the Republican Presidential Primary.

As always, guys, the best defense to this is a good offense. Let’s get the word out, around the blogosphere and to the mainstream media.


  1. to people in one of our prominent Jewish neighborhoods here in PA (Pittsburgh.)  I couldn’t believe it.  When I drive through there on my way to work, it’s like I’m in Obama sticker heaven. I’m going to see if the local paper that’s non Scaife owned paper covers it…

  2. …and Governor Palin’s pastor making clear cut anti semitic remarks.

    Lost this in all the welter of vetting information. Anyone recall this?

    One thing is for sure: she doesn’t help in Florida in the same way Lieberman would have done

  3. roberta g

    and his fingerprints are all over this. I also heard something about a DVD re ‘islamo-terrorists’ being delivered with newspapers in the swing-states. BTW, what IS the color alert this week?
