Obama’s Radical Leftist Supporters

Hat Tips: Zelda and Powerline

Over the past couple of days, I have seen some disturbing news reports about the kinds of people Senator Barack Obama has attracted to his campaign. Most disturbing are his “advisors.” Powerline has featured reports about his terrorist-apologist supporter Samantha Power, for whom groups like Hamas can do no wrong. Can you imagine in an Obama Administration someone like that being trusted with a high profile position at the State Department? Powerline also reminds us that Obama has brought on one Susan Rice, the person who persuaded the Clinton Administration not to make Sudan turn over Osama bin Laden. Maybe confusing Obama with Osama is more than Freudian, eh? We don’t have to remind you that Obama’s church minister is known for having made Jew-hating remarks as well.

Zelda brings up another Obama contributor, Robert Ayers. Ayers was a 1960s Weatherman radical who participated in various bombings during the early 1970s. The New York Times picked a great day to print a flattering article about Ayers – September 11, 2001 (in which Ayers is quoted as saying “I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.”) Ayers is now a professor in -- are you ready for this? -- Chicago!

Ron Paul was (rightfully) called to account concerning a contribution from a white supremacist leader. Why isn’t the same happening with Barack Obama?

Why does Obama insist on bringing people like this close to him and/or taking their contributions? What is his underlying foreign policy? Disturbingly, it is (to put it kindly) a very naïve approach to terrorist groups like Hamas or sponsoring countries like Iran and Syria. At worst, it is hostility to American allies and values. We don’t need this in the White House, that’s for sure!

By the way, Sen. Hillary Clinton has also sent advisors to meet with Syrian authorities, right after the car bomb death of terrorist leader Imad Mughniyeh. Condolence call, maybe?

I can’t wait for Snapped Shot to feature a picture of Islamic Rage Boy on the Obama campaign trail!
