Shadowy right-wing group trying to steal our Senate election.(Arkansas lefty alert)
May 4, 2010 | Larry Burton (Rev.)

Dear (Move on member),

I'm a MoveOn member from Arkansas, where a shadowy right-wing group is spending almost a million dollars on racist attack ads trying to steal our Senate election. So I'm making a plea to MoveOn members around the country for help.

You may have heard about the big primary election happening down here: we've got a good shot at replacing Senator Blanche Lincoln—who recently ran an ad saying she doesn't answer to the Democratic Party and who helped kill the public option—with a far better candidate named Bill Halter.

But her supporters are getting desperate, so now they've turned to racist fear-mongering. A secretive right-wing front group that's been supporting tea party candidates is running incredibly offensive ads: they feature Indian-looking actors in traditional dress, with thick accents, claiming to "thank" Bill Halter for sending American jobs to Bangalore. (A complete and total fabrication.)

I know racism when I see it. They're preying on voters' economic anxiety, using untruths to smear a good man. And the worst part is, this ad could work. I've heard that the average voter will see it thirty times this week, and believe me, I can't turn on the TV without running across it.

So I'm asking you and other MoveOn members to help make sure Bill Halter has the resources to fight back. I've just made a donation to Bill Halter's campaign. Can you chip in $5?

Thanks!

–Rev. Larry Burton Little Rock, Arkansas

I bet it’s Blanche Lincoln’s campaign who is really behind this “shadowy right-wing group”.

Believe me, Bill Halter, who is running against Lincoln in the primary, makes even her appear centrist. Hopefully they will do enough damage to each other to carry over into a November election GOP win.

New Arkansas Democrat/MoveOn slogan:

“If your donkey is old, get a new donkey.”
“A young cool donkey.”

McArthur Assembly of God Pastor Larry Burton.

Email : pastor@mcarthurchurch

Raised in a minister's home, Pastor Larry Burton spent his childhood and teenage years growing up in the parsonage listening and learning from his parents, Rev. Lester and Betty Burton.

In other words, Larry Burton doesn't know how to do anything else.

******

Larry Burton, a Little Rock resident and MoveOn member, had this to say about Senator Lincoln’s vote:

“Blanche Lincoln has showed that she doesn’t care about standing up for what is best for Arkansans. How can she be claiming to be excited about passing health care reform, while at the same time, voting against important fixes that would directly benefit some of the people struggling the most? We are fed up with Blanche Lincoln, and deserve someone who will do what’s best for us, and not the corporations who are funding her campaign.”

******

I bet Larry Burton wouldn't turn down any 'donations' to his church from those 'evil' corporations.

That’s right. It’s a shadowy right wing group called the “Democratic Party.”

Can this guy get in trouble for soliciting while using his position at the church? He says he’s a Rev on the email. Wonder if the campaigning goes on at his “church”?

Don’t know. I’m waiting to see what our Church does. Halter is a member of the same perish. He’s Catholic.

I wonder Pastor Burton’s “flock” knows what he’s up to?

Very unusal to see an Assembly of God pastor who is a lefty. Abortion and gay marriage is a no no. I wonder about his lifestyle.

Guy by the same name is pastor of a UMC church in Little Rock. That would make more sense.

Several churches are part of the Arkansas Friendship Coalition, a group that advocates for illegal immigration. The group includes the ACLU and some pro-homosexual groups. Bishop Anthony Taylor of Arkansas is an illegal immigration cheerleader. He wrote a pastoral letter supporting illegal immigration. I wrote a counter letter that's now available on the Secure Arkansas website.
