Democrat Wexler Smears Sarah Palin as "Nazi Sympathizer" Sympathizer
Friday, August 29, 2008 | Kristinn

Posted on 08/29/2008 7:18:21 PM PDT by kristinn

Democrat Congressman Robert Wexler of Florida (and Maryland) tonight smeared Republican vice presidential pick Sarah Palin as a Nazi sympathizer sympathizer.

Wexler, who represents a district with a significant Jewish population, threw out the vile charge after a 1999 Associated Press article reported Palin was seen wearing a Pat Buchanan for president button on a visit by Buchanan to Wasilla, Alaska when she was mayor.

Ben Smith at the Politico published Wexler's statement:

John McCain's decision to select a vice presidential running mate that endorsed Pat Buchanan for President in 2000 is a direct affront to all Jewish Americans. Pat Buchanan is a Nazi sympathizer with a uniquely atrocious record on Israel, even going as far as to denounce bringing former Nazi soldiers to justice and praising Adolf Hilter for his "great courage."

At a time when standing up for Israel's right to self-defense has never been more critical, John McCain has failed his first test of leadership and judgment by selecting a running mate who has aligned herself with a leading anti-Israel voice in American politics. It is frightening that John McCain would select someone one heartbeat away from the presidency who supported a man who embodies vitriolic anti-Israel sentiments.

Smith reports Palin denied at the time endorsing Buchanan:

She promptly responded to the story in a letter to the editor, that "the article may have left your readers with the perception that I am endorsing this candidate, as opposed to welcoming his visit to Wasilla. As mayor, I will welcome all the candidates in Wasilla."

Smith adds that the AP reported Palin was "an official of Steve Forbes' campaign that cycle."

Tonight on Hardball, Buchanan said Palin "brigadier for me" in 1996 and that Palin and her husband attended a fundraiser for him.

Smith notes that it doesn't appear Palin donated to Buchanan's campaigns.

The left is going to milk this for all it's worth. Wexler is one of the nastiest pieces of work in the Democratic party. His smear of Palin as a Nazi sympathizer sympathizer is par for the course.

What this makes the Democratic party's own cable news channel, MSNBC, which pays Buchanan to offer his opinions on a daily basis, Wexler doesn't say. Maybe he'll ask Obama to boycott MSNBC like he boycott's Fox.

Wexler is a nasty man. He tried to help Gore steal the election in 2000 down in Florida.

Wexler is the lowest piece of slime that exists. Sadly, he’s my representative. I did pass a one of his yard signs the other day. Someone had spray painted JAIL over his face. What a beautiful fantasy that would be.

Obama’s campaign called Stanley Kurtz a smear artist for writing truths about Obama’s relationship with “terrorist” William Ayers. Will it also condemn Wexler for smearing Palin as an anti-semite because she once supported Pat Buchanan?

Lieberman needs to be the one to come out and B*tch-slap Wexler on this ... hard. And it needs to happen NOW. I'd say a good hard kick to the gonads would be in order as well, but I don't think Wexler has any.

As a Jew, I can say that Wexler is a disgrace to our religion, and I usually don’t hold a person’s religion as a litmus test for sanity. However, Wexler is a perversion of everything a decent Jew (or Christian or Moslem) stands for.

I call upon all my religious brethren to put politics aside and denounce this psychopathic smuck in the strongest terms.

If he represents Broward County, then I understand why this ahole got elected. I used to work for Herb Burke (R-Fla) who was a real gentleman. His Democratic Party successors were political amateurs and degenerates.

To my long-lost relatives in Florida - what the hell have you done?

He doesn't even LIVE in Fl!

He uses his mother-in-law's address as his own and she lives in what is an adult only community.

He finally admitted that his home where he lives is in Maryland, when he was confronted with all the evidence.

He now says he is buying/renting a place in FL.

How can the people of FL be so stupid?!?

She wore a Buchanan pin because he was visiting her town. She supported Forbes that year. Wexler is an idiot, we’ve known that for years. But if the RNC had the Gaffe-a-matic running on Wexler instead of Biden, you’d have to switch to some unit smaller than seconds.

That is really sick.

Just today I called the friend who originally convinced me to support McCain. He brought me to a McCain talk here in New York during the primary and I found McCain to be nothing short of Reaganesque in person ... a quality that never came through the MSM filter until the Saddleback forum.

I told my friend at the time that if McCain showed his Reaganesque side in his VP choice I would donate the max to his campaign. I called him today and said sign me up. He said he was thrilled about the choice of Palin and was receiving similar responses from many others. Oh, and by the way, my friend is Jewish.

Freepers, go to the McCain website right now and donate as much as you can.

In the box labeled “referred by” write “Sarah Palin”.

Wexler is the Florida Congressman that has been caught blatantly lying and cheating about maintaining a residence in his district as required by law.

He is a typical democrat who subscribes to the John Edwards theory of Two Americas.

In his view, everyday people reside in one America and must observe the law.
The other America is where the privileged, the wealthy, and the politicians (like Wexler) live and where the laws do not apply.

Wexler is a gumbah with the folks at the Washington Post. They, themselves, are notorious anti-Semites.

We must never forget that the Washington Post helped Jim Webb in his campaign against Senator Allen by trashing Senator Allen's mother for being Jewish in WWII.

That scarfs up a certain type of voter in Virginia who hates Negroes, Catholics and Jews.

In most years they don't vote, but the Post made common cause with them, and Wexler makes common cause with the Post.

Lie down withdogs like that and you wake up with your own NAZI party mange.

This Wexler puke is the worst.
