66-year old grandmother and civil attorney, Mary Kay Green, is suing John McCain, Sarah Palin and their campaign manager claiming they are “intentionally and recklessly portrayed Barack Obama as a terrorist.”
Vodpod videos no longer available.
“I think John McCain and Sarah Palin have no understanding of what we went through as a nation,” she said. “[The lawsuit] will be dismissed as soon as I hear public statements from these two candidates that they abhor these death threats and that they will not tolerate these intruders in their audiences.”
Neither the McCain nor the Obama campaign offered comment on the lawsuit. But privately, Green said the Obama campaign wants the lawsuit dropped.
“It will be dismissed as soon as I hear these public statements from these two candidates that they abhor these death threats and they will not tolerate these intruders in their audiences,” Green said.
Green spent $350 dollars on her lawsuit. She believes it is worth every penny.
I hope that she gets her wish that the kind of hatred and misinformation we are seeing emanating from the McCain camp and their supporters stops. Check out this picture. It speaks volumes.
Here are two videos by BloggerInterrupted as he speaks with crowds of McCain supporters after a rally in Ohio, asking if they think Obama is terrorist.
Palin and McCain have spent several days whipping their crowds into a frothy frenzy culminating chants of Obama is a “terrorist” and people yelling comments like “Kill him!” and “Off with his head!” (The Secret Service is looking into the “Kill Him” comment.) I wonder what the reaction would be if an Obama supporter suggested killing McCain.
Is this not akin to shouting “Fire” in a theatre?
UPDATE: Watch a video from the streets of Pennsylvania from the Pennsylvania Progressive below the fold. It’s even more terrifying.
