Another Imprudent Dem (Dem Candidate Rowley portrays opponent as a Nazi on her website)
Powerline ^ | 1/30/06

Posted on 01/30/2006 7:31:44 PM PST by finnman69

As the Democratic Party continues its slide into disrepute, there doesn't seem to be any bottom in sight. Here is the latest smear from the Dems: candidate Coleen Rowley has published a despicable slander of my own Congressman and friend, John Kline, depicting him as a Nazi. Click to enlarge:

In a sane world, the pathetic Ms. Rowley would be forced to resign from the race in humiliation. That won't happen, however, as this kind of ridiculous smear is exactly what the Democratic Party is looking for in its candidates. The more outrageous, the better.

Here is Congressman Kline's response to Rowley's smear:

Dear Mrs. Rowley, It has come to my attention that you have placed on your campaign website a doctored photo of me in which my military uniform has been replaced by a Nazi uniform. I demand that you immediately remove from your website that outrageous and disgusting insult to me, my family, and every man and woman who has ever worn a military uniform in defense of our country.

No one knows better than I the rough-and-tumble of a political campaign, but we owe it to the voters not to cross the line of civility, respect and common decency. With regard to each of these, you have clearly crossed the line by portraying me as a Nazi.

I demand a personal apology from you, as well as an apology to every veteran.

Your attempts to smear my good name and 25 years of honorable service in the United States Marine Corps by equating me to a Nazi shows a lack of perspective, a lack of seriousness, and a lack of good judgment. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Sincerely,

John Kline
Member of Congress - Minnesota's 2nd District.

Don't hold your breath. Far from being ashamed, my guess is that Rowley's Nazi slur will increase her fundraising from the Democratic faithful.

OK Freepers, we can't let these people win when they do this. I don't know a thing about the GOP guy, but I would crawl over broken glass to vote against this witch.

We really need to stand up against this kind of crap, because there is real nazi like evil afoot in the world right now.

Nowadays, it's like being forced to share a home with somebody else's spoiled misbehaving brat children.

Their lack of manners and utter disregard for other people makes you want to take them out behind the barn and beat the crap out of them.

But you grit your teeth, ignore them...and go about your business.

That's "The New Tone"...

Sounds like she is in the mold of Cindy Sheehan, just a single-issue dimwit who will never amount to anything. But this Nazi slur of hers...she's just a pig...and you know what happens to pigs.

I like the "Ethical decision making" tag. Apparently she's taken the photo off her site, but left the article. It's some kind of crazy rant because Kline suggested replacing Grant on the $50 bill with Reagan. According to the blog, there's something "Leninist" about it, and except for the word play of Colonel Kline to Colonel Klink, I don't know what the nazi uniform was about.

It shows how bereft of ideas these clowns are when they work themselves into a frenzy over putting a former president on a monetary unit. Heck, I've suggested putting Jimmy Carter on a wooden nickel, and if John Kerry had been elected, he'd be a natural for the three dollar bill.

Coleen Rowley to Join Cindy Sheehan Protest

Wednesday, August 17, 2005

Coleen Rowley, who gained notoriety for leaking classified intelligence after the 9-11 attacks and is now running for Congress as a Democrat, is joining Cindy Sheehan in front of President Bush's Crawford ranch.

Yes, this is an outrage.

Some may not like this next comment but it needs saying: We should police up conservative sites as well. The use of Hitler with Sen. Clinton's first name for example. I can't stand her but if we are going to complain about the references to Hitler and the Nazi's to conservatives then it applies equally to us.

Unless, of course, we wish hold ourselves to a lower standard?

Six million Jews and millions more Eastern Europeans lost their lives to the Nazis in their deathcamps. What would they think of our callous usage of comparisons to Hitler or a Nazi?

FYI: My comments above have absolutely nothing to do with being politically correct either.

Well, I was getting excited about the Nazi thing, but then I thought: Who am I to judge a expert on "ethical decision-making"?

_______________________

http://www.coleenrowley.com/ethical.php

Ethical Decision-Making

Coleen Rowley has chosen to make ethical decision-making central to her campaign for office in Minnesota's second congressional district. Why? Because she knows it is a critical and sorely lacking element in today's political environment, as well as in many professions, sports, academics and other day to day activities.

Coleen has considerable experience in ethics training. Beginning in the early 1990's and prior to her retirement from the FBI, she taught Office of Government Ethics and law enforcement ethics to FBI personnel in the Minneapolis office. Coleen has also lectured at a variety of law schools in Texas, Ohio and Minnesota on aspects of the main rules of legal ethics. Since retirement, numerous governmental, professional, civic and church groups have also requested to hear Coleen speak on the topic of ethical decision-making.

______________________________

So all of you getting on this lady's case should clamp your respective pie-holes. I mean, seriously, are YOU an expert in "ethical decision-making"?

This is another of the rat's "rats in uniform" candidates. Yes, yes I know she was not in uniform. She was cia, but she fits because the "rats in uniform" candidate's most important attribute is his/her name. They run on the basically stupid rat notion that people vote for names, not message. Yes they did vote that way in the past, but that was in the day of the black table-phone media's power.
This is a good thing for us, however. Their running people on this basis will waste another cycle for them.
That ash hole hackett in Ohio will crash and burn. In a special last week in Virginia a "rat in uniform" crashed and burned. Oh you didn't hear about that one? Google this "special election victory Chris Peace wins, Viriginia Assembly." You'll find it. The black table-phone media didn't tell us about that race. It didn't fit. If the rat won it would have been page one.

Even her fellow Democrats are regretting Rowley's candidacy. I've read that they have asked state Senator Sharon Marko to run. Last I read, Marko is considering it.

I live in the district. IF she is the candidate, all Kline will have to do is run this as an ad the last two weeks of Oct and he will get about 75% of the vote. There are Democrats in this district but they are defiantly Scoop Jackson-Harry Truman Working Class Democrats. They are NOT going to like this slime smear of the US Military.
