The Osama bin Laden Day-Care Center (Dem Senator praises bin Laden)
Wall St. Journal ^ | Friday, December 20, 2002 12:16 p.m. EST | BY JAMES TARANTO

Posted on 12/20/2002 11:06:43 AM PST by Behind Liberal Lines

The notion of a U.S. senator singing the praises of Osama bin Laden is too far-fetched to take seriously, right?

Wrong.

Here's the Columbian of Vancouver, Wash., describing a speech by Sen. Patty Murray (D., Wash.) to a group of southern Washington state high-school students:

Murray concluded the session by challenging the students to consider alternatives to war.

"We've got to ask, why is this man (Osama bin Laden) so popular around the world?," said Murray, who faces re-election in 2004. "Why are people so supportive of him in many countries . . . that are riddled with poverty?

"He's been out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day care facilities, building health care facilities, and the people are extremely grateful. We haven't done that.

"How would they look at us today if we had been there helping them with some of that rather than just being the people who are going to bomb in Iraq and go to Afghanistan?"

Coming next: Patty Murray describes how Hitler built the Autobahn.

Actually, it's true that bin Laden financed some road construction in Sudan, back when that was the headquarters of his terror network, but Murray must have a screw loose if she thinks al Qaeda has been building "day care facilities." What, to cater to all the fundamentalist Muslim families in which the husband and all four wives have to work?

Murray, by the way, was until recently a member of the Democratic Senate leadership. She served as chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in the 107th Congress.

Un-freaking believable. What a dumbass.

To quote Bob Dole, "Where's The Outrage?"

Oh, I forgot... she's a Democrat, there will be no outrage. Now, if she were a Republican...

On the other hand, Thank God she isn't; the Dems can have her.

Unreal. She really needs to be made a laughingstock, if nothing else. There should be a move in the Senate to censure her for such a stupid comment, one that, by the way, is demonstrably false.

Glad to see this is getting more "play" in the press....our dimwit senator (yeah, she's purports to represent "me" as I live in W. Washington, the STATE) deserves to be gone...and I'm enjoying that Roger Hedgecock brought this up while doing Rush's show, now the WSJ, and local talk show hosts are on to it.....not sure it will help.

The Democrats want to make Trent Lott the face of the Republican Party. Well, they've got a PR problem of their own now. Patty Murray is now threatening to become the face of the Democratic Party.

He built a lot of girl's schools in afghanistan I heard.

< /sarcasm>

Just another liberal using the "other" to show how we are really the bad guys, even if the facts are wrong, or in Patty's case, hallucinatory.

Yep, she's hallucinating. Osama building schools...Patty will be endlessly quoted as the "proof" that Osama is not such a bad guy. If an American Senator said this, it must be true, no?

Dumb doggie.

She should be forced to resign. This is far far worse than what Trent said. It's an insult to every American, NewYorker, service member and humanity in general.

Ignore the rivers of blood around the world inspired by Osama. The more i read about this, the worse this sounds.

Osama and girls schools. LOL!

I'd like to see her spend a week in Saudi, Pak or Kashmir.

See how she likes being detached from her head.

Bin Laden built roads and other "infrastructure" in these countries for the express purpose of the government providing him protection and a place to build his training camps and terror network. Period. End of story.

He builds buildings that are necessary to advance his cause, which is to topple buildings (with people inside.)

Better yet, Freepers who live in States with Republican Senators should be writing their Senators demanding they do so.

In all fairness, all charity programs and many educational programs are run in fundamentalist Moslem countries by Islamic charities, with funds provided by Saudi Arabia and other countries. All good moslems also pay a tithe-like offering to the poor. That's just the way their society works, and allows one to claim they are a good little moslem. It's not just Bin Laden, its all good muslims.

Now lets peel the onion back a little. Islamicists hold to the notion that the head of all government is Allah. Therefore, the leaders of mosques are often the defacto government in many areas.

The ONLY leaders that Bin Laden supported, the ONLY schools (madras) that he built, the ONLY roads that he built and ALL charity the he employed, were to further his world view and to fulfill his religious duty.

So he built a school? He built it to train thousands of very fundamentalists kids as a future army to overthrow all non-Islamicist governments. BTW, his schools are closer to a religious version of communist reeducation centers of the past.

So he built roads? So did Mao and the VC. Everything he has done is with the purpose of buying influence, buying government officals, buying safety, and paying bribes. He built homes for widows? Only for widows of veterans who fought against the Soviets. He built an orphanage? Well, Saddam pays for Palestinians kiddies to blow themselves up, and then pays the parents because they "lost" a son.

And she is dumb enough to pretend that there are ANY "day-care centers" in Taliban run areas? What a fool. She is only trying to Anglicize an totally non-Western world.

As thoroughly discusting as these dingbat's quotes were, what compounds the disgust for me is the fact that she was talking to American children (not that her quotes were probably all that different from what they hear from their wonderful government indoctrination instructors on a regular basis anyway).

I'd say that an utterance like this would be cause for official censure or ejection from the Senate.

Why?

Because it is a violation of her oath of office to defend the Constitution of the United Staes fopr all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Because it is treasonous - it offers aid and comfort to the enemy.

Because it is abysmally stupid - Osama bin Laden has done none of those things except for building schools (actually more like training academies) for Jihad and terrorism. But, stupidity has never been a bar to service in the Senate.

But since Trent Lott has been given such a rough ride over the past week or ten days over HIS stupid remark, I think Patty (don't Bogart that joint) Murray deserves no less.

Let's go get her.

Ann Coulter called the Democratic Party as "the Gift That Keeps on Giving". She meant that you could always count on Democrats - especially Liberal Democrats - to say things truly asinine and out-of-touch with reality. Just as Lott steps down, Murray steps up and shoots off her mouth. Now they have to disown her, but they can't, because she's the Democratic Party in the flesh.

It's their Christmas present to us.

Mindless mutterings by the "Mom in tennis shoes," madcap Murray!!!

Makes you wonder what Scoop Jackson, the last rational Demonicrat from the State of Washington, would say!!!

She and Boxer, Fienstein, Clinton, Pillyosie, Snow are perfect examples of the "Year(s) of the Woman" electeds that are shaming this country now, by turning it into "The Gelded Age!"

These are the nattering nazi nannies of negativity, insipience and stupidity! Theirs is a pernicious power and it's in the wrong hands and not for the children either!

If memory serves, Ms Murray also receives hefty campaign cash from the fetal tissue harvesting company located in Washington State and she has pushed legislation that funds the research programs which utilize fetal tissues and harvested abortion cadavers.

This was my little rant on this Lunatic B$tch acting like a senator on another thread:


Typical insane ranting from a lunatic liberal b$tch:

"We've got to ask, why is this man (Osama bin Laden) so popular around the world?," said Murray, who faces re-election in 2004. "Why are people so supportive of him in many countries … that are riddled with poverty?

"He's been out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day care facilities, building health care facilities, and the people are extremely grateful. We haven't done that.

Someone needs to ask B$tch Murray where Beeny Larden built health care facilities and schools?

I remember the picture the Afghan woman being shot in the head in a soccer field for something. I guess that Murray would cheer that event of the Taliban Thugs, who were the good friends of Beeny Larden!

You have shown us what a Day Care Center for future Islamokazis looks like.

Of course the Day Care Center is financed, managed and staffed by Islamofascists.

Good grief MHG! Is each and every political thought in your mind continually wrapped around this one axel? I share your disgust of abortion, but with you it seems the one and only evil on Earth!!!

Please look around... There are other evils and some of them approach the level of the abortion evil. We can, however depend on you to always bring in that connection to almost any horror under discussion at any time, or else, we don't hear from you, right?

So true! Now, will you please explain to me why this will not be happening??? Could it be because it is "mean?" Is this why they will say again, that "Mean People Suck"? Like they did against Dan Lungren as he wouldn't cow-tow to their pro abortion desires in a gubernatorial candidate?

I'm tellin ya. Don'tcha dare cross these prejudicial politically correct commonists, or they'll call ya a "Mean People" and make everybody think you suck, cause yer a warmonger, anti-environment, anti-choice, anti-homo, anti-immigrant, anti-whatever and an "Ugly American," at that!!!

Probably not, but someone in charge might mention that OBL did build a road or a street in Sudan, and then the Sudanese govt. asked him to get lost. They even offerered him free of charge to that confirmed idiot, the First Felon, and he turned them down.

This is Bull. We have been doing these things all over the world for decades, and these people still hate us. Has she ever heard of the Peace Core.

"We've got to ask, why is this man (Osama bin Laden) so popular around the world?," said Murray, who faces re-election in 2004. "Why are people so supportive of him in many countries . . . that are riddled with poverty?

Why? It’s called propaganda, the same crap your spouting right now. It’s the Madrasa schools (which indoctrinate the Muslim youth with hate for the West) that Osama builds that you so admire him for. They hate us for supporting Israel the only Democracy in the Middle East and the home of a race their Holy Book tells them to hate and fear. They hate us because their culture is about subduing personal freedom and the subjugation of women, while ours is about maximum personal freedom and the equality of women.

This is a war of culture, ideas and ideals. We can’t make these people love us because they hate us not because of anything we have done but because of who we are.

This lady’s speech is so AlGore, if the facts don’t support your ideas make some up that do.

Click on my profile page. I do offer notions not attached to the abortion issues. Sorry you don't catch them on occasion ... and I would be hard pressed to find a more fundamentally flawed policy of our nation that degenerates our goodness more than abortion on demand, sanctioning the serial killing of the most innocent. I also write about the terrorist war and Islamism, and assorted other topics associated with creationism and evolution and Chrsitianity, if you're interested. But I don't mind if you try to characterize me as a 'one note Johnny'. It is my self-appointed mission to come to the defense of the little ones.

What I offered in the earlier post was intended to strengthen the notion that the woman has a dead heart, as do many despotic democrats and liberal societal engineers. Her inference that Osama has been doing social services needs to be carried to the logical adjunct: the schools are destined as his means to educate the young in hate and Islamofacism, with only a whif of education in the three R's. In the closed, patriarchical society of Osama's 'wet dreams', the schools in Afghanistan weren't even open to females and the hospitals and clinics served a dual purpose for him as medical aid for his 'warrior murderers of Islamism' in the event of war with the Soviets/Russians or the U.S. A dead heart like Murray's sees only the glossy surface of these 'institutions', never the pernicious intent for them.

I shouldn't have let loose on you. The few encounters I've had with your replies always revolved around your rather aggressive defense of the little ones. Here in CA they've used the issue to devastate and demonize conservatives and so, although it's a valid issue, some of us grow weary and a bit irritable. Sorry.

Let's compare Osama's operations to Patty Murray's Democrat Party and see if anything is the same.....

Osama bin Laden uses illegal drug money to purchase much of everything he bought to bribe people in that country. If he couldn't bribe them cheap and get the men/boys to sign up to fight, they were terrorized and murdered from what I have read.

The Democrat party couldn't exist without buying off the vote by re-directing tax dollars to create go-nowhere programs and hand-outs to buy power and votes just as Osama buys his power an lives.
Democrats also are a big hate group that attempts to divide people for the sake of gaining power by using the race card wrongly and by any other scam possible. In the same way Osama hates the people he bribes and kills them if he can't use them.

This heartless female dog (b word) should resign.

What an embarrassment. Washington state, the home of Bagdad McDermott and Al Queda Murray.

one TV commercial showing Baghdad Jim claim Saddam Hussein is more believable than George Bush and showing Murray claim bin Laden buyilt day care and health centers SHOULD be enopugh to embarass the people of Washington into getting serious about not being represented by anti-American idiots.

That is, of course, unless they ARE anti-American idiots.
