Barack Obama called on to renounce hate organization, Please Move On! ^ | 3/15/07 |, Please Move On!

This is what Ronald Reagan said and did when, in 1980, the Ku Klux Klan offered him its endorsement.

"I said that I have no tolerance for what the Klan represents, and would have nothing to do with any groups of that type. ...I firmly believe that there is no room for partisanship on this question. Democrats and Republicans alike must be resolute in disassociating ourselves from any group or individual whose political philosophy consists only of racial or religious intolerance, whose arguments are supported only by intimidation or threats of violence."

This is what Barack Obama did after knowingly and willfully allowed its Action Forum to be used as a platform for racist, anti-Catholic, anti-Semitic, and anti-Christian hate speech, along with 9/11 denial.

In fairness to Barack Obama, he is not the only individual who lent his name and prestige to an organization whose members use "Jew" as an epithet while saying that the "Catholic Pedophiles of America are raping your children." As shown by MoveOn's Web page, Sherrod Brown and Russ Feingold also did not "resent the use of [their] names by those who seek political recognition for the repugnant doctrines of hate they espouse."

As shown by the transcript of Barack Obama's speech, it took place in or after mid-September 2006--at least three weeks after MoveOn's promotion of hate speech was a well-known scandal. This is the sort of thing that was public knowledge when Obama chose to associate his name and image with this hate organization. As an example, "Jew" was used as an epithet to describe Obama's fellow Democrat, Joe Lieberman of Connecticut.

A little history on the Ku Klux Klan:

"The original Ku Klux Klan was created after the end of the American Civil War on December 24, 1865, by six educated, middle-class (Democrat) Confederate veterans from Pulaski, Tennessee, who were bored with postwar routine. The name was constructed by combining the Greek "kyklos" (circle) with "clan"

The Ku Klux Klan soon spread into nearly every southern state, launching a "reign of terror" against Republican leaders both black and white.

"In many ways the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party, the planter class, and those who desired the restoration of white supremacy"
