Racist Ad Links Obama to White Man, Stirring Up Age-Old Fears of Homosexual Miscegenation

DrewM sent this to me a while ago... Basic message: Osama bin Ladin was unsuccessful in bombing the Capitol.

Barack Obama's bosom chum, unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers, was successful at bombing the Capitol.

At Hot Air-- complaints that an ad about a white Christian-born American terrorist is, um, Islamophobic. Or something.

And another racist McCain ad, linking him with a dead white male. That's right-- age-old fears of homosexual necrophiliac miscegenation.

The Ultimate Taboo. The Third Rail of American politics. Subject of the incendiary, suppressed William Faulkner/Roger Corman movie, The Long Hot Summer I Spent Having Hot Gay Sex With a Zombie Schvartze (aka Abaschlong, Abaschlong).

First Reviews: The Ad is a Summer-Blockbuster Hit! How do I know?

Well, you always know how effective an ad is based on how badly liberals sputter indignantly and incoherently over it. Let Michael Crowely of TNR explain, or rather notexplain, why the ad is such a monster hit:

Here We Go

You thought Corsi was swift boating? This is swift boating. The 9/11 link is completely and utterly revolting.

And that's the entirety of the post. Why is the 9/11 link revolting? "Shut up, that's why."

Hmmm... let me actually bother to do what scary-important TNR writer Michael Crowely didn't have time for and make something akin to an argument.

The 9/11 connection is perfectly warranted because, in case Crowely hasn't noticed, we are in a world war against terrorism. (A low-intensity world war, but a world war nonetheless.) Part of this war is fought in the arena of ideas. One of the contested ideas in this war is whether terrorist tactics are morally justifiable under any circumstances, including, crucially, when employed by an angry political minority which passionately wishes to change US policy but does not have the conventional military might to do so through regular warfare.

It is the stated, and well-nigh uncontested (except by some on the left) that the answer to this question is a forceful "No."

It is the past, and current, position of William Ayers, Barack Obama's longtime friend and political ally, that the answer is an enthusiastic "Yes." Indeed, Ayers' only regrets about bombing the Capitol and so forth was that he "didn't do enough" and stopped actively engaging in terrorism too soon.

The left is very big on "soft power" and winning hearts and minds, in contrast to hard power and winning territory and air wars. Very well. If that's the case, then Obama's close friend, the unrepentant terrorist William Ayers, should be of even greater concern to liberals than it is to conservatives, as liberals are the ones emphasizing the soft, lead-by-example moral suasion aspect of the war -- an aspect that Obama's unrepentant terrorist friend William Ayers badly undermines.

Furthermore, Ayers is a disgusting, despicable creature, a cheap, cowardly thug who planted bombs and whose organization murdered policemen.

Does Obama support domestic terrorism? Oh, I doubt that. But let's also get it on the record, too, that his friendship with Bill Ayers surely must indicate he's not exactly repulsed by it, either.

That's an awful lot to get past.

How many unrepentant rapists have you personally befriended in your adult life, Michael? How many convicted but proud murderers? How many such repellent creatures have you found so charming that you could easily put aside qualms about their past crimes to become fast friends with them?

Beyond that, of course, it is simply incontestable that if a Republican were friends and political allies with a former abortion-clinic bomber or other sort of domestic terrorist -- someone who still advocated such measures, by the way -- Michael Crowely and the whole of TNR would be very interested in such a friendship, and would gleefully contrast that Republican's stated position against Islamofascist terrorism with his tacit acceptance of, and possible approval of, domestic terrorism in the right situation.

Tell me I'm lying, Michael. Tell me.

Thanks to Allah for pointing that out.

Thank You, Andrew Sullivan! McCain says "fair game" on Rezko, Wright attacks.

Not that we needed that okay. But still.

Oh, and Obama says the ad is "despicable."

You know what's despicable, Barack? Befriending an unrepentant terrorist who still supports violent terrorist bombing against your country, Barack.

How many houses does McCain have?

I don't know. Here's a good question: How many bombs did your friend Bill Ayers build and plant?

At least four? Seven? Thirty?
