Skip to comments.Jihad Cynthia Strikes Again! (McKinney's gone wild!)
Posted on 04/04/2006 5:47:46 PM PDT by Dark Skies
For those of us who've been following Democratic Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) a/k/a "Jihad Cindy" (not to be confused with Jihad Cindy #2, Cindy Sheehan), her assault on a Capitol Police officer (she punched him) is no surprise. Nor is her race-card playing. It's par for the course.
To revisit my 2001 column on Jihad Cindy:
McKinney has a strong record of hating America. During the recent U.N. World Conference Against Racism, she joined the Arab world . . . and Third World republics in attacking the U.S. While there (and overseas--the conference was in Africa), in pushing for slavery reparations, McKinney said the White House is "just full of latent racists."
Bill Clinton was in the White House then, FYI.
Just after 9/11, when extremist billionaire and Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Al-Saud offered New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani $10 million if the U.S. would change it's policy in Israel, morally excusing the murder of 3,000 Americans, Jihad Cindy wrote the Prince a Letter. In it, she chastised Giuliani for denying the Prince's right to speak (he didn't). Then she wrote that a baby born in Asia has a much better life than a Black baby born in the U.S. More from my column:
"Your Royal Highness, the state of Black America is not good." McKinney wrote, "There are many people in America who desperately need your generosity," making the false assertion that a black baby born in Harlem has a worse life expectancy than one born in Bangladesh.
Remember, this was days after 9/11, and Jihad Cindy is attacking our country to a high-ranking Prince (his uncle was Saudi King Fahd) of the country from where 15 of the hijackers emanated.
Speaking of 9/11, McKinney is all about the tin-foil theories of who is behind the attacks, and she held House hearings on it. Hint: She doesn't think it's Al-Qaeda. But when it came to real investigation, when former FBI Counter-terrorism Director Oliver "Buck" Revell wanted to show minutes of a documentary on Islamic terrorists in America, she balked and protested.
Then there's Jihad Cindy's obsession with defending Black Panther cop killers. Not to mention her close association with the Nation of Islam's loony leader Louis Farrakhan, who sent his top lieutenants to run her failed 2002 campaign.
When my good friend, John Mitnick, now a White House counsel, ran against Jihad Cindy in 1996, she and her father used anti-Semitic statements about him, referring to him as "that racist Jew." (They made similar statements when McKinney was defeated in a Democratic primary in 2002.)
So it's no surprise that she employed and then had to fire Rayed Tayeh, a former employee of a HAMAS front-group when he wrote a letter to the editor of a Capitol Hill newspaper, accusing Jewish Congressmen of being disloyal to America. Tayeh went on to lead the Muslim boycott of Starbucks for the crime of having a Jewish CEO. (I debated him on FOX News' "O'Reilly Factor" and MSNBC's "Hardball" on the topic.)
That's Jihad Cindy in a nutshell. So, the latest assault on law and order by this nutty Congresswoman should be no surprise.
The surprise is that she continues to be a respected member of the Democratic Party and House Democratic Caucus. In my column, I wrote that Jihad Cindy is the modern-day Hanoi Jane. But I was wrong.
Jane Fonda was only in film. Jihad Cindy is far worse: She's a Member of Congress.
And how generous of Cindy the Clown to serve up humor for a congrescritter wage, rather than running away with the circus.
The only people more disgusting than Cindy are the voters who keep electing her.
That is priceless!
The word 'FUBAR" comes to mind..
My daughter and her husband just moved to Tucker, GA in Guinnett County. Based on their zip code, they are in David Scott's 13th District. Is he as wacky as Cynthia? The 13th is sure gerrymandered, isnt' it?
My brother is a senior partner in one of the top RE appraisal firms in town. Let me know if I can help
When the idiots in Georgia wrote the districts...her district was a gerrimandre special. You could pit her against Jimmy Carter, and she'd still win. I don't think she is going away...unless you arrest her (lol). But it would make an interesting situation...having her go through the court...and get a 6-month period in jail. I don't think she would even resign from congress.
Even congressional comedy is a pathetic traitorous Greek Tragedy.
With the looks of that hair, she could've made a great case that she was repeatedly tazed by the officer.
A termite in our woodwork.
The people of Georgia have been supporting Ms McKinney all of her miserable life..and seem happy to do it. The people who keep on electing her are the real culprets here...Ms. McKinney does what she does with the consent of her constituents.
Hey...if they like it and are content with an arrogant and profoundly ignorant person representing them...what can you say? They are the ones who are ultimately the laughing stock of the country.
That pic wierds me out, the eyes are like the "runaway bride" woman
Thanks for the offer, but they already bought a home, near Jimmy Carter and Lawrenceville Highway. From what I understand, it's a good thing they like Mexican cuisine.
(I fell asleep at the computer last night, so that's why this response is this morning.)
"...Not to mention her close association with the Nation of Islam's loony leader Louis Farrakhan..."
Paging the mothership; paging the mothership; Cindy's ready to take flight. Beam her up now, please!
"McKinney said the White House is 'just full of latent racists.'Bill Clinton was in the White House then, FYI."
But I thought Bill was the first black president?
Everyone refers to McKinney (slave name) as "nutty". I guess that's true but I find her to be seething with anti- white, anti-America venom. The fact that no prominent Democrats have disassociated themselves from her speaks volumes about them. They should not be permitted to laugh her off as one would a naughty child. That is the racism of lowered expectations.
