Over the top in Mass. (Disgusting Dem flier about Scott Brown) Desperation by Coakely
politico ^ | 1/15/2010 | ben smith

Posted on 01/16/2010 12:20:46 PM PST by milwguy

Via Sargent, an extremely sweeping charge from Massachusetts Democratic Party.

The basis is a provision Brown voted for that would allow religious hospital staffers not to inform victims of the availability of the morning after pill.

The NRSC invoked Felix Grucci in response.

Coakley camapign stoops to ALL TIME low in attacking Scott Brown. If the people of Mass were not turned off by Coakley saying there are no Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, that Curt Shilling is a Yankee fans, Catholics shouldn't work in emergency rooms, and using a picture of the World Trade Center to attack Brown, this flier surely will do the trick.

Trying to say that rape victims will not be treated at hospitals if Scott Brown has his way is beyond despicable. It is the clearest signal yet that the wheels have fallen off the Coakley campaign.

For those of us far away from Massachusetts, I hope that Freepers will post accurate information about the crowd sizes and crowd enthusiasm at the Brown and Coakley events this weekend.

This may tell us something about likely turnout on Tuesday...

Full disclosure: I'm not a Massachusettes Massachusetts resident. I live in California, which is slightly to the right of MA. :) But I AM watching this with great interest, as the implications for the nation as a whole are huge.

I can't say I've ever seen one so hateful and despicable as Coakley. I could really use the “C” word to describe her! My apologies to the real ladies out there.

Martha Coakley seems to be the female version of Joe Biden.
Not too bright but very entertaining.

Here is a C word that can be used that describes Coakley - crass, another conceit. contempt for America. better yet a contentious witch(replace w with a b). i know the word you mean and she does not count among being called a lady. some would also call her a whore, ho. prostitue for Obama.

This is the most ridiculous campaign poster I’ve ever seen. Between the aide with a penchant for beating up reporters that ask questions that they don’t like to hiring designers for these ridiculous posters, Coakley obviously has a judgement problem. A Coakley Administration would be staffed by the ignorant and thuggish.

Great pics from the ground! Love to see the SEIU members proudly wearing their union T-shirts and carrying BROWN signs!! I hope some of those folks are along the route Barry O takes tomorrow on his way to NEU to give his speech. Would pay good money to see and his Dem hacks reaction to seeing union members supporting Brown.

“I could really use the “C” word to describe her!”

Over the CHRISTmas Holidays, I went to a theater in Miami Beach to see a movie. It was packed and there was a line of about 200 people, after standing in line for 25 minutes, my party was next to be served when a woman, wearing a “hope and change” t-shirt, walked from the end of the line, stepped in front and ordered her tickets. I nicely told her that she had cut in line, her husband kept telling her not to do that. She acted like she didn’t hear. After she turned around with her tickets, I got in her face and told her that she had cut in line. She said “What do you want me to do, give them the tickets back?” I lost it and told her she was a “commie c__t.” I was so embarassed, I had to apologize to all who heard the confrontation...all said she deserved to be called worse.

Way too late for this crap.

They honestly want people to believe that Scott Brown wants people like his own daughters will not be treated at hospitals if they are victims of rape?

There may be some few who believe this, but any rational person can see this for what it is, a blatant act of desperation, designed to smear him.

I’d love to hear a member of the press ask Zero for his opinion on this issue when he helicopter’s into Logan on Sunday.

For those of us far away from Massachusetts, I hope that Freepers will post accurate information about the crowd sizes and crowd enthusiasm at the Brown and Coakley events this weekend.

For the last few days a local Boston talk host (Howie Carr...great guy) has read stats given to him,I assume,by the Secretary of State's Office,that indicate that requests for absentee ballots in certain cities and towns have skyrocketed in recent weeks and the cities/towns where this has happened are the ones that might be expected to vote Brown.Cities like Boston and Cambridge,for example,have had *no* discernible increase in applications according to Howie.

My town (suburban Boston...ordinarily votes RAT) is *awash* with Brown yard signs!

I think we'll at least get real close...I won't predict victory because I've lived among Massachusetts RATS my whole life and I know what they're capable of.And in this state,getting even within a few points of a worthless RAT like Coakley is a big victory and *will* be heard loud and clear in DC by many RATS who want to keep their jobs.

Of course,it won't be heard by Hussein The Blessed but then I think he's already realized that he's gonna be a one termer.

My initial questions are:

WHY were there 1,736 rapes to begin with? What has coakly done to stop them?

Next question: Did coakly get permission from the young ladies to use their photos in her ad?

Next: How many of her followers would find themselves in a religious hospital?

Again, I believe that this ad will backfire on her. It's not going to sway Scott's voters to her side.

I have ridiculed Coakley’s scare tactics re abortion, but now I must also admit there is some method to the madness. Her campaign must gamble that they can awaken sleeping voters, ones who have in the past been energized in the “feminist” cause which equates available abortion as the liberator of women. Similarly, an Obama visit can bring out the black vote. They win only if a significant number of people vote who were otherwise going to sit it out.

HELP SCOTT DEFEAT THE OBAMA SOCK PUPPET!!

(stole this from another FReeper, but bears repeating)

•People in ANY state can volunteer for the phone bank! http://www.resistnet.com/forum/topics/phone-calls-for-freedom-call-1?commentId=2600775%3AComment%3A1891491&xg_source=activity

•Anyone… Anywhere… Contribute! https://www.icontribute.us/scottbrown

•Live in or near MA? Volunteers still needed at many regional offices. If you can help, please email Laura@brownforussenate.com and she will tell you how.

•If you live in Massachusetts, become an election judge. In Boston they pay $135-$185 and they NEED Republican monitors.

Needed; military and retired law enforcement VFW and police organizations etc to monitor polls- prevent the voter fraud they’re plotting right now. Video tape everything; document everything; prosecute the perpetrators. http://www.cityofboston.gov/news/default.aspx?id=3599

Who are those women in the poster? I notice that the same pics keep repeating themselves. If those are just stock photos or actresses head shots, someone needs to bring that up. If women were actually turned away, or even denied help, surely some real pictures exist somewhere.

Next question: Did coakly get permission from the young ladies to use their photos in her ad?

Excellent points. The first would stop her cold. She'd have no comeback. Anything she'd say would make it worse.

On your second point--wow. And do we even know if these women are victims at all? Looks like a montage of yearbook, facebook or flickr headshots slapped up there.The pics are posed. Not what you'd expect for a victim wall. All young, apparently attractive, w/only one black woman. (She appears several times, but it's the same photo, flipped. Same with the others.) Faces are blurred but still recognizable to anyone familiar with the person to begin with.

I'm thinking the Coakley and the DSSC stepped in it again with the pics. First the WTC and now this,,,real victims who didn't sign a release, or young women whose headshots were used without their knowledge or permission? Very, very possible.

I’m sure they wouldn’t be stupid enough to go around using the actual (blurred) faces of rape victims.

But the “turn them all away” thing is an absolute twisting of the truth - or as regular (non-Democratic) people call it, a lie. (Even the discussion on the Dem website hosting that image is wondering why the Dems would ‘go there,’ and all they can come up with is that she must be waaay down in her latest internals.)

The issue at hand is a piece of legislation Brown sponsored that would allow for health care providers to not provide ‘morning after’ abortifacients if they don’t want to, which has nothing to do with turning people away.

Didn’t see your post before I posted. My thoughts exactly. This could be very bad for Coakley and the DSCC—and not just because of election results.

“Full disclosure: I’m not a Massachusettes Massachusetts resident. I live in California, which is slightly to the right of MA. :) But I AM watching this with great interest, as the implications for the nation as a whole are huge.”

If the Ted Kennedy Senate seat can be won, so can the Barbara Boxer seat be won.

She is an Obama socialist, and the backlash is against precisely that.

Obviously Brown has been effective in vocalizing that; it will take somebody every bit as strong in California.

(And in the CA GOP those are few and far between)

I certainly hope so. But I do NOT want that seat going to Fiorina. I am re-registering as a Republican so I can vote for DeVore while I still have the choice (and possibly ensure that I’ll have that choice in November).

A few of the photos are used many times. Could this be interpreted that those ladies were raped many times?

If I had to do such an ad, I'd make sure that there were 1,736 squares to give each victim their spot.

Coakly's team has hired students who have failed advertising class. They have disrespected the victims.

The whole thing wouldn’t be an issue if Coakley didn’t let the rapists free.

Especially the ones that rape 2 year olds with a curling iron.

Prefer Boxer over Fiorina, for six more years?
(If it came to that?)

What specific issue positions of hers, do you oppose?

Latest Rasmussen poll. Of the three GOP possibles, Fiorina currently leads, but still short of Boxer. Not much, though.

Brown has been doing his level-headed best to stay out of the mud to date; but he DID just take Coakley to task over this ad on the local Boston news earlier...you could tell he was pretty honked.

Among other things, in the past Fiorina has endorsed Boxer. That suggests to me that voting her in is probably not much better than keeping Don’t-Call-Me-Ma’am in office.

“Among other things, in the past Fiorina has endorsed Boxer. That suggests to me that voting her in is probably not much better than keeping Don’t-Call-Me-Ma’am in office.”

More recently she has been associated with the McCain campaign, supported the choice of Palin, and she is running against Boxer.

I expect she is a “moderate” California Republican, and will be tested against a more conservative GOP candidate in the primary.

When and against who did she endorse Boxer?
