McCain gave money to Khalidi? The truth behind the meme

Yesterday, readers of our blog were witness to the birth of viral meme.

An 0bama troll dropped by our post on the LA Times video suppression, and informed us that the Obama-Khalidi association really wasn’t any big deal. Otherwise, why would John McCain have given over $400,000 to a Palestinian group that Khalidi worked with?

I googled his cut-and-paste comment and discovered that the exact same phrase had been already been posted to the internet over 500 times.

That same verbatim phrase now has been posted over 18,000 times!

Obviously the O-bots think it’s working.

The problem is, it is only a distraction, designed to produce an illusion.

Aaron Klein, writing at WND, shines the light of truth on the 0bama cover story.

It’s true that McCain distributed several grants, including one worth about half a million dollars, to the Center for Palestine Research and Studies, or CPRS, a West Bank organization associated with Khalidi.

What the 0-bots fail to mention is that CPRS is pro-Western and can be characterized as pro-Israel.

Its work has been condemned by the Palestinian leadership and by local terror groups as “Zionist propaganda.”

In contrast, the Khalidi organization Obama helped fund as a board member for a nonprofit, alongside domestic terrorist William Ayers, has taken a flagrantly anti-Israel line. Khalidi’s Arab American Action Network has hosted scores of Israel-bashing events, including at least one reportedly attended by Obama.

The Obama-Khalidi connection is one more straw. Is it the one that finally breaks the donkey’s back?

Free The Tape!!!

Coverup! LA Times suppresses incriminating obama video

Update: Any good sleight-of-hand requires a small distraction in order for the illusion to be successful. So it has become with the Rashid Khalidi story. Attempting to distract concerned voters from the attention given to Obama’s close friendship with the former PLO spokesman, 0-bot operatives have fanned out across the web to put forth the narrative that this is no big deal, because McCain was responsible for giving Khalidi’s group money through his chaimanship of the IRI. The exact quote of the 0-bot narrative has now appeared on the internet some 534 times (and climbing).

The distraction ignores the salient fact: McCain is a known quantity. Obama is not. The American People know John McCain: his military career, his legislative career, and his unquestioned love of country. The same is not known about the Democrat nominee. Obama’s past is opacity defined, and the people have a right to know much more about this man than has been gleaned from a media widely viewed as being “in the tank for Obama.” …………..

end of update

from LAT:

John McCain’s presidential campaign Tuesday accused the Los Angeles Times of “intentionally suppressing” a videotape it obtained of a 2003 banquet where then-state Sen. Barack Obama spoke of his friendship with Rashid Khalidi, a leading Palestinian scholar and activist.

The Times first reported on the videotape in an April 2008 story about Obama’s ties with Palestinians and Jews as he navigated the politics of Chicago. The report included a detailed description of the tape, but the newspaper did not make the video public.

The Times is now claiming that they promised a source not to release the 2003 video … funny how they have waited so long to make this piece of information public.

The entire matter smacks of a Watergate-style coverup of the highest order. The LA Times is on the wrong side of this issue because the public’s right to know the truth is the sole purpose of press freedom. This is crucial evidence in the court of public opinion, and to deny the American People the opportunity to view the actual smoking gun evidence is inexcusable.

Release the tape
