Skip to comments.Clinton County Chair In Iowa Is Asked To Step Down After Sending Anti-Muslim E-mail
Posted on 12/05/2007 11:23:50 AM PST by LdSentinal
A county chair for Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign has been caught sending an e-mail casting aspersions on Sen. Barack Obama's religion, and today, the Clinton campaign asked the person, a volunteer, to leave the campaign.
A Dodd supporter in Iowa wrote about the e-mails on the Daily Kos site, and the Clinton campaign.
The ever vigilant Clinton web guru Peter Daou emailed a response:
There is no place in our campaign, or any campaign, for this kind of politics. A volunteer county coordinator made the mistake of forwarding an outrageous and offensive chain e-mail. This was wholly unauthorized and we were totally unaware of it. Let me be clear: No one should be engaging in this. We are asking this volunteer county coordinator to step down and are making it clear to every person involved in our campaign that this will not be tolerated.

Anyone who is offended, raise your hand.
“A county chair for Sen. Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign has been caught sending an e-mail casting aspersions on Sen. Barack Obama’s religion,”
Wait I thought he wasn’t muslim and that he only attended a muslim school.
Oh my, this is very hard to believe. The Clinton campaign would never do such a dirty thing as this. /sarcasm
I don't care if someone is a Hare Krishna, Buddhist, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, or a disciple of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, as long as they respect the Constitution and the principles of individual liberty, personal responsibility, and limited government which it embodies.
Sorry, you'll get no politically correct bs out of me.
Fella looks like Honest Abe Lincoln
If someone wants to call themselves a Muslim while ignoring the intolerant parts of the Koran, that's no skin off my nose, just as it's no skin off my nose if someone who calls themselves Jewish is eating a cheeseburger or working on Saturday.
Hillary is desperate.
This isn’t an anti-muslim email. This is evidence of the Clinton campaign staff sending out the Obama emails.
If the political system known as Islam supports democracy, then we could repeal Islamic laws. But they are law because Mohammed said so.
Seems it the RATS. That makes it better yet.
Well then you had better hope it is one of the peaceful muslims you vote for, cause if it is not you might get your head chopped off.
Strict Muslims think we should all die, their women should behave or submit to honor killings, their children must be taught to hate anyone who is not a muslim, etc.
Strict Jews don't want to blow my children to bits. I hardly think you made a good comparison.
Wow. Protesting about Muslim slurs AND identifying Obama as one when he says he isn’t. Getting to have cake and eat it too.
That pretty much says it.
Hell, even Al Quada themselves have said it.
You'd be hard pressed if you went to the middle east and could find any muslim who would disagree.
That statement is factually correct.
If everyone would simply convert to Islam then the world could be at peace, don't you see?
She thinks she can control what politics is or isn't.
I swear she is a ravin' megalomaniac.
Even Dem constituants are concerned about the Muslim infrastructure in the USA.And the campaign worker was likely doing what Hillery ordered. His or Her mistake was in getting caught.
Again Hillery has put her foot in the shite pile. She is completely opposite to what the people want addressed: Border Security/illegal aliens and the economy.
Hillary is an aristocrat like so many running on both sides. They assume they have the widom to redefine public concern and push their ideas down our throats.Hillary along with all the rest should be humble enough to represent the people. She is NOT. SOme Republican candidates have the same problem.
Duncan Hunter does not have this problem.
What a horribly devisive president she would make.
[I don’t care if someone is a Hare Krishna, Buddhist, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, or a disciple of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, as long as they respect the Constitution and the principles of individual liberty, personal responsibility, and limited government which it embodies.]
Most religions have as a tenet, the concept of honesty. Muslims, OTOH, may lie, and when dealing with we non-believers, are REQUIRED TO LIE. How can we trust anything a muzzy says?
It’s a shot across the bow saying “We didn’t initiate this” which immediately makes me think they did.
“..as long as they respect the Constitution and the principles of individual liberty, personal responsibility, and limited government which it embodies.”
That definitely leaves Islam out.
How do you separate the two things?
Our nation was founded by Christians on Christian ideals.
We were not to have an official state sanctioned religion (particular brand of Christianity), but it was assumed that we were a Christian based nation.
It’s the Constitution and the oath to support it which matters, not someone’s individual religious beliefs. That’s something that the Framers and Founders made very clear - “...no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”
“Islam and democracy the way we know it cannot co-exist.”
What is there to know about Islam? Just read the Koran and be convinced that Islam, under any form, will always be the enemy of democracy.
“no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”
I agree with that.
But there are certain religious beliefs that are in oppostion to the ideals of our nation.
And certain ones that support our nations ideals of freedom, liberty, etc.
I will personally look at those issues when I support or do not support a candidate.
And I think that every other voter needs to look at that also.
Isn't that what I just said?
No one in this country is forced to acknowledge the divinity of Jesus or any of His words or deeds.
“..but it was assumed that we were a Christian based nation.”
The Founding Fathers in the 18th had this in mind, but America-haters in the 20th century changed all that. We are now a multicultural nation where Christianity has to be eradicated. Today’s slogan is ‘Anything but Christianity’.
I haven’t seen any Democrats (or even RINOs) making any campaign speeches about personal liberties or freedoms. They all speak of pooling resources for the greater good.
The liberty to have an abortion is like the liberty to own a slave. The woman’s body ends at the umbellical cord. When there are 2 or more embryos, they are different beings, not the same being (even when they are fused together). If there is a liberty to abuse your own child, then the “right” to an abortion is a personal liberty. But it does impose on the rights of another to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
The Left believes in a right to plot sedition against the government. They never were outspoken against wiretapping the mob, just international terrorists engaged in an international call. They didn’t mind the McDermott tpe of Newt’s personal phone call with his attorney.
They believe in a liberty to engage in certain sexual practices. Others are still prohibited by law, the Supreme Court didn’t approve all acts between consenting adults in private and it DID approve the same formerly illegal acts for “consenting” minors and even in indoctrinating school children into echoing that this is “normal” activity.
Other than that, I don’t know what freedoms they ever speak of.
Bingo. Go to the head of the class.
I think so too. It's actually kind of clever. They are, "shocked, shocked I tell you", that anyone would call into question his religion (while reminding everyone that he might be a Muslim).
Jefferson said it was basically no concern of his what God his neighbor believed in - “it neither picks my pocket or breaks my bone.” Something like that anyway.
His neighbor didn’t blow up hs house because of religious differences either.
These people are garbage, under all that Bill’s “charisma” and Hillary’s rehearsed speeches, simply human garbage.
I don’t care what he, or anyone, says; I think Obama is a CLOSET MUSLIM.
But, then, tolerant America is surely ready for a Muslim President; huh?
Considering her latest remark about Obama and his early history....Was the dip totally unaware of what SHE said?? Or her famous "Muslim Gas Station" JOKE?
But then again I am just a mean ol' bigoted conservative who needs to learn to share the love.
Oh never. Now we will get to read articles blaming this on Republicans, like I saw in the LA Slimes a few days ago.

If mainstream Muslims were intrinsically able to support the US Constitution (or any true democracy for that matter) we would be seeing massive rejection of incidents like the Sudan 'teddy bear named Mohammed' incident, of alQaeda insurgencies, of flogging raped women, etc.
But we are NOT.
In fact, poll after poll confirms the fact that a large percentage of Muslims sympathize with these atrocities, all in the name of supporting Sharia law, and of destroying Israel, of which they have been inbred since birth.
Listen, most Westerners WANT to be able to trust Muslims as brothers in democracy.
Unfortunately, until the Muslim powers-that-be rise up and rid themselves of these horrendous Islamic tyrants, then I for one will have no trust in them.
I would also add that when Muslim countries allow Jews, Christians, Hindus, etc. to run for office, I would have more trust in them.
