Morning Joe Lets Schweitzer Skate on Polygamy Swipe At Romney
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 04/26/2012 6:35:46 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

There could be only one good reason to have Dem Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer on Morning Joe: to grill him on his ugly anti-Mormon swipe at Mitt Romney. Schweitzer recently said that Romney would have trouble attracting women voters because "his family came from a polygamy commune in Mexico."

So naturally I waited for Mika Brzezinksi, Mark Halperin, Cokie Roberts--anyone!--to raise the question of Schweitzer's slur. And waited. It never came.

If a GOP governor had recently taken a shot at Obama’s religion, do you think Morning Joe would have failed to raise it with him? Ping to Today show list.

Be patient. Once a Romney aide or supporter points out that Urkel's own dad was a polygamist the Wasserman-Schultz will hit the fan.

Yup, Ann Romney never worked but she's got as many kids as that old sow Nancy Pelosi and she has MS just like Michelle Obama's father. Mitt got caught torturing his dog, but Obama wrote about eating his!

The polygamist thing is common to both these guys ~ neither of whom are In the American mainstream!

You’ve gotta forgive old Brian.....he pulls his string tie too tight and it shuts off the oxygen to his little brain.

Funny.

Obama aide about Romney: The guy is out of touch, has a wacky racist religion, comes from a polygamous family, and started an unpopular socialized medicine program.

_______________________________________

as a woman I find polygamy evil..

Its a crime against women...

and God calls it a sin...

So someone told the truth about the evil doings of generations of Willard Mitt Romney’s family...

and the same type of people who have no trouble exposing the illegitimacy of Barry Dunham’s origins ...

and that Obama Sr the father of Barry was a polygamist..

are now screaming FOUL...

Well maybe Willie Mitty needs to denounce the ugly practice of polygamy ...

But will he ever do that ???

In Willie Mitty’s religion he believes he too will be a polygamist...

and a god...

in the Mormon after life...

Willie Mitty can believe what he likes..

just dont get upset because someone mentions his unBiblical religious beliefs..

or the family arrangements of his ancestors...

All of us have some ancestor or other that did something disgusting...

Willie Mitty has too...

It wasnt a slur...

It was the truth...

did he ewant a coverup or something...

he wont get one...

The romneys are proud of their bigamist ancestors...

Thats what makes them “royality” or “first families” in the Mormon religion...

The GOP "Christian Evangelicals" ...

and the GOP E-RINO club ... (Barbara Bush, Juan McCain) ...

have "zero idea" of what the MSM has in store for Mitt "Mormon Celestial-God" Romney ...



Frankly, I suspect that "Morning Joe" and the Gang secertly kicked this guy Schwietzer's @sss around the studio walls after his "polygamy" remark ...

Why ?

Because it's TOO DAMN SOON ...




The LDS "cult" isn't Christian ...

but they do get credit for being a major player in helping (financially) defeat the recent California Gay Marriage vote a couple of years back ...

The gay nazi brownshirts are out for BLOOD for the LDS folks ...

Their plan ?

It's called a "three-for-one" special ...

1) Trick the GOP to nominate that "imbecile" Romney for president

2) DESTROY the 2012 GOP Presidential race ... by destroying Mittens the "Celestial God-Child"

3) DESTROY the LDS cult ... with a tsuami ad-campaign (reminesent of Mitts carbet-bombing of Newt in Florida)



Fortunately (as I keep saying this) ...

Mitt Romney DOES NOT GET THE GOP 2012 NOMINATION in Tampa ...



But "if" Mittens did ...

American will see an ad-campaign against Mormons ...

that would make Travell Martin, Hitler and Stalin ... "blush" ...



Let's see, where do we begin about the LDS cult ?

1) their genuine "war on women's rights" ?

2) their long-standing (anti-black) racism ?

3) planet Kolob ?

4) secret rites and special "magic" underwear ?

5) Jesus Christ and Satan are brothers ?

6) all that "incredible" (missing) archelogical evidence of those great (Jerusalem-style) walled cities and fortresses along America's east coast ?

7) Disbelief in the Holy Trinity ?

8) Joseph Smith's "sterling" moral character ?




It will be a blood bath, worse than when Hannible ambushed the Romans at the Battle of Cannae (50,000 Romans dead in a single day) ...



I sure hope that Herman Cain brings his popcorn to "that" movie ...

Now that Willard is the presumptive nominee the DBM gloves will come off...just like with McCain...but most of us knew this would happen, no surprises here - and frankly I could care less. FUMR

All of these trivialities as disticntions just underscore how very similar Bishop Willard and Lightworker Hussein are in their policy histories.

The GOP got what it wanted. Live with it. Die with it.

Because they got their orders to change the subject

“President Obama’s campaign quickly disavowed the comments and said it would not engage in “attacking a candidate’s religion.” In fact, the remarks are outside the bounds of what both sides have said is acceptable discourse for the campaign.”

Most Mormons are very proud of their “pioneer stock” and will proudly tell you about their polygamist ancestors. If this is now considered a swipe at Romney or the Mormon church then its just another in his long string of flip flops...

AND...the campaign won't have to lie. All the dems have to do is bring to light the truths about Joseph Smith, the mormon corporation and the 150-year record of mormon leaders calling Christianity an "abomination". There are 52,000 mormon missionaries going out every day proclaiming to Christians that their faith is bogus and the mormonism is the "one true and living church", the ONLY way to salvation.

The epitome of stupidity is running a member of a proven racist sect against a black man. Mitt was 31 years old before said sect recanted it's doctrine that blacks carried the "mark of cain" and their color was a curse of the mormon god.

During the 2008 cycle Willard was speaking to I think it was George Stephenapolous

George asked about polygamy and Willie Mitty said

“I cant think of anything more awful than polygamy IN THE DESERT”

He wasnt saying polygamy was awful, just living in the desert..

He didnt say anything about when his family lived back in Utah in the greeen mountains in polygamous relationships before they went to the desert of Mexico...

also Willie Mitty never denounced polygamy as a sin and/or a crime...

His family back to his 2nd and 3rd great grandfathers were bigamists err polygamists...

Thats what makes the Romneys speshall in Mormondom...

Mitt has gotten permission from the LDS leadership to distance himself as much as politically necessary from the church in order to be elected.

I thought it was interesting that for the last 150 years in Utah before the start of legislative session the leadership of the Mormon church would meet with both parties and both houses of the legislature to fill them in on the church’s position on the issues. This year for the first time ever the meeting was called off...

Don't forget the perpetual pregnancy of the wives, since they have to birth all of the spirit babies that will inhabit the planet a good Mormon gets.

To everyone that is upset about this, don't say you weren't warned. If you want my opinion this is just a taste of what we are going to get from the Media. These are just scouting attacks to see what is going to have the most penetration when they really begin to attack. Once he has the 1144 delegates they will begin the task of cutting him down to size. Then they will begin attacking him for being a Mormon and bring up the recent church history towards blacks, you only thought the race in 2008 was about race. No doubt some “investigative reporter” will uncover some wacko sect down in Utah or some such place were they still hold to polygamy. You can imagine the ammunition that Saturday Night Live will have in this mockery, remember Tina Fay could see Russia from her backyard. That's why I was amazed when he was pushed as the 'most electable' from the start of this snafu.

To any who hope Romney wins in November dig out your helmets and flack vest and prepare for the artillery barrage!
