Jihad Cynthia Strikes Again! (McKinney's gone wild!)
FrontPageMagazine ^ | 4/5/2006 | Debbie Schlussel

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.

"Inappropriate touching" is intended to make it sound like the officer grabbed her boob or her ass.

In fact, anywhere you grab Cindy, you've grabbed the biggest boob and biggest ass in Congress.

If there were ever a reason to impose term limits on elected officials, Cynthia McKinney comes in at number one with a bullet.

...a black baby born in Harlem has a worse life expectancy than one born in Bangladesh.

There are no democrats in Bangladesh. Drug gangs rule the streets of Harlem, most of them populated by blacks. New York is a 'blue state' run by democrats and unions for decades.

Maybe Ms. McKinney has a point. I say to her, "Physician, heal thyself."

I agree with everything Debbie Schlussel said in her article except Cynthia be respected. Not one House member has supported her on this.

I would hope her constituents would be be embarrased enough to vote her out in Nov....but I am not holding my breath.

But then again...maybe they like being "represented" by a lunitic.

As usual, Debbie Schlussel hits the nail on the head.

McKinney is rabidly anti-American, and stupid besides.

Comparing kids in Bangladesh to American black kids?? Go to any inner city school in the USA. 60% of the black kids are overweight from eating too much rich food.

The Bangladeshi kids could live for a month on the calories our kids consume in one day.

The district (centered around heavily Democrat DeKalb County) will not be seriously contested in November. But she faces a serious primary challenge against DeKalb County Commissioer Hank Johnson.

Actually, I hope she wins, as she keeps making her fellow liberals look bad.

As though he could bear to grab her thusly... Now she wishes to make him look as though he was sexually harassing her to justify her error, she couldn't give a flying fig about his well being or his reputation, even though he did nothing wrong and she admits he was just doing his job!!!!

In fact, anywhere you grab Cindy, you've grabbed the biggest boob and biggest ass in Congress.

LOL, all too true!!

And shame on her. Shame on you, Cynthia!

She has the audacity to be outraged at an officer doing his job. How dare he stop Her Highness!! (/sarcasm) She's a disgrace.

Hank Johnson, a moderate democrat, is running against McKinney in the primary. Because of the, you know, ethnicity of Georgia's 4th congressional district, whoever wins the primary basically wins the election.

There's always the chance that cross-over votes from Republicans in the district can defeat McKinney as was done in 2002. This latest incident may in fact help energize just such an effort (one can hope)!

one wonder just how many more likeminded Looneys hold congressional seats and why they haven't been recalled

There are a lot, starting with Vermont's Sanders and Leahy, but it's a long, long list. Why haven't they been recalled? Because (here's a really scary thought) they are actually representing their constituents' views.

That accusation makes me sick to my stomach.

The hardest-up guy in the world wouldn't find that hippopotamus attractive - unless of course it was another hippopotamus but there are few of them in Washington.

Capons (RINOs) and jackasses (Dems) but hippos - no. I think McKinney is the only one of her kind there except for in the Washington zoo - but they only have dwarf hippos there.

With one exception. If a muslim thinks a camel or a goat or a donkey is cute...why not a hippo?

Majette, after only one term in the House, decided to run for the U.S. Senate and of course lost as everyone predicted. What a bone headed move that was because everyone knew it opened the House seat back open to Jihad Cynthia.

It's a cold calculating person who hides behind a phrase we associate with sexually abused children.

"Inappropriate touching" is that phrase and Cynthia needs to apologize for it to smear the officer. Then she should resign.

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.
