"Together we writhe" would have been a more appropriate "sloganeering."
In what could only be called a new debased low even for the left, the Obama pep rally for the dead seems to have been orchestrated by his community organizing machine, OFA (Organizaing for America).
I started to liveblog it on Wednesday here: The Cheering in Arizona.
I am watching Obama give what appears to be a campaign speech in Arizona. Call me old fashioned, but the Arizona memorial event was more like a sporting event than a memorial service. The wolf whistles, the whooping and hollerin' for Obama, Big Sis Napolitano, Holder (?) et al is making my skin crawl.
I stopped writing after that. I did not continue. I was repulsed and sickened at the spectacle of the political exploitation Obama and co. had manufactured, at a university, no less, where he could count on a generation of zombies whose brains have been marinated and pickled in a leftist primordial soup for the whole of their education/indoctrination.
Obama making his bones on the bones of the Arizona dead.
It was a national moment of shame. Just how morally bankrupt are we talking here? Over at the Thinker.
The apparel didn't focus on the dead/injured nor were they the idea of the University of Arizona administration but instead were emblazoned with a President Barack Obama (D) campaign theme, "Together We Thrive." And so it should come as no surprise that they were distributed by...Obama's own Organzing for America, reports Judi McLeod of the Canada Free Press.
The "Together We Thrive" T-shirts that starred at Wednesday's Arizona `Memorial' originated from Organizing for America (here), a sad fact unearthed by The Drumbeat of Liberty and the Preservation of Freedom editor and Canada Free Press (CFP) columnist Robert Rohlfing.
the mainstream media reported that the "Together We Thrive: Tucson & America" T-shirt given to mourners as they entered McKate Center was the idea of University of Arizona brass, not the Obama administration.Yet the "Together We Thrive" slogan dates back to a post to Obama's own Organizing for America in a Feb. 11, 2008 post by self-described "globalist" John Berry IV.
More than passing strange that the Obama campaign message of civility was the same on Feb. 11, 2008 as it was in his Wednesday Memorial speech, and the same one, too carried by the mainstream media in coverage of the Memorial.And for those in attendanceIf you were a mourner who took home a "Together We Thrive" T-shirt have a look at the bottom of your shirt. "Rocking America and Rocking the Vote" is a common theme of the DNC, and it's right there on your Memorial T-shirt memento.
I will say that I read the speech several times and thought that there wouldn’t be a lot of applause if any. I think many of us thought that. But I think there was a celebration, again, of the lives of those who had been impacted. Not just at that grocery store but throughout the country. And I think that, if that is part of the healing process, then that’s a good thing.
