Demonizing Joe The Plumber: AP Digs through Birth and Court Documents to Destroy Him!
Politically Drunk - PDOP ^ | 10/17/2008 | Jarid Brown

Posted on 10/17/2008 5:25:24 AM PDT by Jabrown

Regardless of where you live or what your occupation is the story of Joe the plumber should be a wake up call for the middle class of this nation; not because of the socialist undertones of Senator Obama's 'Spread The Wealth' policies, but rather because of the reaction of his campaign, his surrogates and the fringe-left media to anyone that questions "The One"...

...But my favorite is from the SF Chronicle, a know left-wing publication, yet a nationally printed publication:

Is there anyone left who does not believe that AP represents terrorists, foreign and domestic?

The funny thing is that the Joe the Plumber was not significant because Joe asked the question, but rather because Barack Obama fumbled the answer. You see, Barack Obama made the classic political blunder when he told the truth.

This revealed, clearly, what people have known about him all the time, which is that he is a Socialist committed to the redistribution of wealth. He has been denying and disguising this plain fact for 20 months, and suddenly he blurts out the truth to some Plumber from Toledo. On camera. That is why it’s news!

It is quite a shame when a blow-hard like Obama can get away with this crap because of taking down the little guy.

The insults on his constituency (middle class) are amazing...and they are eating them up.

I pray for our country under his leadership. I need to get all my prayers in now. Who knows if I’ll be allowed to do that come January?

Yep, the only thing meaningful that they might be able to dig up on Joe the plumber is that he is a master ventriloquist. Otherwise, it’s all distraction.

The Obama people must be desperate over this.

AP's and others' treatment of Joe the Plumber is a perfect example of how conservatives are treated at ALL universities once the conservative is identified.

No sh*tski... conservatives are ostracized by the maggots in administration and faculty. Staff follows their example until the conservative is either fired or quits.

Stop funding ALL colleges and universities until half the faculty, administration, and staff are conservatives.

Same goes for any taxpayer sponsored nonprofits, TV and radio stations, etc.

Conservative voices are needed immediately at these organizations.

We need the names of the authors of every one of these leftist smear articles posted about Joe the Plumber. Every one of them must in turn be investigated until every aspect of their individual life is discovered, and subsequently posted all over the internet. Fight fire with fire.

Joe the Plumber represents all of us in the middle class that believe that ones' place in society must be earned, not stolen from others.

Which is why I keep saying that after the elections, there needs to be a constant effort to fully “expose” (credit to Charlie Gibson for this word) all members of the media and celebutards and to show to the world their lies, foibles, screw ups and “private matters”. The gloves need to be dropped and they need to experience the pain and humiliation which they put everyone who disagrees with them.

Yesterday, I heard on either Fox News, or the local News, that Joe does not have his plumbing licence and neither does the business he works for. I thought that this was really awful the Obama campaign it seems is digging for dirt on Joe. I am sure they are furious with him. It’s so underhanded to go after someone like that. It’s so elitist. Working people sometimes do things without a licence. Sometimes we do what we gotta do. It just shows how out of touch these elitists are with the real world. It also shows how underhanded they are to be going after a guy like Joe, just a guy trying to make it this world. If you think about it, it is really outrageous.

These attacks, whether or not they work, are just muddying the water. Joe, his history, his income, how much he will pay in taxes... none of that matters.

What matters is Joe’s question and Obama’s answers. With all the hubbub about Joe’s life, no one in the media is pursuing the question anymore.

The liberal attack machine is something to behold. It is reflexive. They can’t defend their positions or subject them to any scrutiny, so they attack and demonize the one who raises the issue. Sadly, it keeps working.

Don't be fooled by the BS. Joe doen't have a license because he doesn't NEED a license to work under someone WITH a license. The boss DOES have a state license.

The whole point of saying the boss doesn't have a county license was to make him look shady. He doesn't NEED a county license because he has a state license which allows him to work anywhere in the state.

Has anybody in the MSM bothered to verify that Barack Obama is admitted to the bar in Illinois? It should be simple enough to determine. He has practiced law in Illinois, after all. But did he ever sit for the Bar Exam?

I was particularly annoyed at Joe Biden’s “no plumber I know makes $250,000 per year” or whatever it was. First off, who really thinks Joe Biden knows anyone who works as a plumber. Of course, the media won’t ask him for the names of all these plumbers he knows. Plus I can’t shake the feeling that the liberals are insulted that a plumber could make that kind of money— that is the kind of money a lawyer should make, who does that plumber think he is? Elitist and snob are just two words that come to mind.

“Plus I can’t shake the feeling that the liberals are insulted that a plumber could make that kind of money— that is the kind of money a lawyer should make, who does that plumber think he is?”

Now if you replace “plumber” with “red neck”, you will have described the elitist view.

It is also the elitist view that we rednecks are not smart enough to figure out what they intend for us.

This truly could be a turning point in the future of our nation.

The key to understanding this is to remember where Obama comes from. He is a minion of Saul Alinsky. These tactics are straight out of the Alinsky game plan. Read his book. It's right in there. Use the rules of the system against it. And always, above all, attack, belittle, smear, and marginalize your opponents using whatever means are available and necessary to achive your ends.

Joe the plumber chooses to use his middle name while a Presidential candidate chooses to hide his. If you think freedom of speech will survive Barrack Hussien Obama in the White House, ask the Sheriff of Lee County Florida or others who have been visited by federal agents after having said something the Obamaists dont like.

“I was particularly annoyed at Joe Biden’s “no plumber I know makes $250,000 per year”

I’ve heard that Joe doesn’t make $250K now but is in a position where he may be making that much in the future. One point that Joe made in an interview was that Obama has decided that $250K is the threshold now but who knows how much that may come down in the future, $150K?...$100K? When BO can change the rules at will, how far can and must he go to pay for his entitlements?

I am as old as my sig indicates.

I have seen a lot of elections.

I have seen a lot of bad guys exposed during the election process.

But this is the first time I have ever seen stuff like:

Thousands of phone calls to radio stations in an attempt to paralyze their communications system because of a guest appearance not meeting their approval The sheriff in MO threaten ting arrest for statements about the candidate.

The legal threats and FCC license threats against radio and TV stations, as in OH and PA.

Threats against the sheriff for mentioning a middle name.

Secret Service calls on a citizen instigated by a turned off campaign worker.

Character assassination because of a legit question of a candidate.

And I will bet you that there are many more where the target is afraid to advertise it because he is afraid.

I wonder, too, if perhaps $250K doesn’t account for expenses. It might be a figure based on gross rather than net.

They are the new brownshirts and Nazis. They will attempt to throw out the constitution as their founder Jefferson dreamed of. They won’t implement a final solution for the Jews as their predecessors did but they will allow their proxies (islam) to do it. If you speak out against them you will be investigated and/or arrested. Our republic will disappear and will be replaced with a “democratic republic” ala South American, African and other third world dictatorships.

Southside Blacks in Chicago, call Barry out.

On this blog is a very intersting view of Obama as he appeared in his run against the Bobby Rush legend!

Barry Obama - American gangster

talking about Obama. I couldn’t figure out why my spidey sense won’t let me accept this. I ask my self Xenophon, old boy, is this just hateration?? To which my self responds in true Chicago fashion, that motherfucker couldn’t beat Bobby Rush. And the number one law in Chicago is we can always take this shit to the streets. Capone, Daley, Washington, Hampton, Hoover, Fort, Jones, Rostenkowski, Emmanuelle all great Chicago politicians have a touch of the streets. Not Obama. Why couldn’t a Columbia, Harvard educated (He never mentions Charles Hamilton Houston, hmmm) law professor beat a mumble mouthed COINTELPRO refugee?

Because Black folk knew he was shady as hell and stood for his own advancement. And what was worse he would do it pimping the legacy of a civil rights movement he had no skin in. As Glenn Ford put it:

Barack Obama is a windblown politician. The junior Illinois senator avoids anchoring himself to any principle, lest his political sails fail to catch the slightest breeze blowing from the left or the right. His political direction is always tentative, although his ultimate destination is never in doubt: he will be a formidable national presence—maybe even president.

Link Or better yet as Lee Sustar put it:
Barack Obama represents: neoliberalism with a human face. It’s an attempt to revive an unpopular free-market, pro-business agenda behind the leadership of someone whose personal history suggests an affinity with the exploited and oppressed.

Link So after the hysteria has died remember I told you so. Till then, Barack – Keep on Pimpin’. I get it. This is America!
