Video of Grown-up Obama Partying With Convicted Terrorists and the Mouthpiece for Terrorist Group PLO
You have the LA Times to thank for never, ever, no not once, airing it for the American public. God forbid they tell you the truth about your President, while they whip you into a frothing frenzy over a teenage Ted Cruz or juvenile delinquient Ben Carson or beer-guzzling Marco Rubio:
The same journalism industry that hyped the light-hearted antics of a teenage Ted Cruz -- and investigated the juvenile delinquencies of Ben Carson, Marco Rubio and Mitt Romney with CSI-level fervor -- actively suppressed video of an adult Barack Obama partying with convicted domestic terrorists and an international terrorist mouthpiece.Michelle Malkin's piece at that link is well worth the full read.
In 2003, when Obama was a 42-year-old state senator and rising Democratic star in Illinois, he delivered a gushing address at a farewell gala for Rashid Khalidi.
In the 1970s, Palestinian-American Khalidi was quoted extensively as a de facto mouthpiece for Yasser Arafat and his State Department-designated terrorist outfit, the Palestinian Liberation Organization. Khalidi denies any official PLO role, but veteran journalist Martin Kramer compiled an extensive laundry list of articles and attributions describing Khalidi as "a PLO spokesman," "a director of the Palestinian press agency [Wafa]" (where his wife, Mona, also worked), and "an American-educated Palestinian who teaches political science at the American University of Beirut and also works for the P.L.O."
Khalidi and his wife founded the Arab American Action Network, which as David Horowitz's DiscoverTheNetworks.org reported, was "noted for its view that Israel's creation in 1948 was a 'catastrophe' for Arab people." The group received money from the left-wing Woods Foundation, whose board included Obama and Weather Underground convicted domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.
The Khalidis, Obamas, and Ayers and Dohrn were a cozy little circle of soft-on-terror apologists in Chicago, dining frequently at each other's homes and funding each other's pet causes. All were in attendance at the confab for Khalidi in 2003, a tape of which was obtained by the Los Angeles Times in 2008.
Despite a clamor from conservative bloggers and independent scholars and anti-jihad analysts, the paper refused to release the videotape.
"Why is the Los Angeles Times sitting on a videotape of the 2003 farewell bash in Chicago at which Barack Obama lavished praise on the guest of honor, Rashid Khalidi -- former mouthpiece for master terrorist Yasser Arafat?" former New York antiterrorism prosecutor Andrew McCarthy asked. "Is there just a teeny-weenie chance that this was an evening of Israel-bashing Obama would find very difficult to explain? Could it be that the Times, a pillar of the Obamedia, is covering for its guy?"
Blogger Jim Hoft summed up the double standards on disclosure and vetting succinctly in 2011: "LA Times Won't Release Obama-Khalidi Tape But Posts 24,000 Sarah Palin Emails."
It's got be embarrassing for anyone who buys what the LA Times, the Washington Post and their ilk think is the news you're supposed to know. Honestly, don't you have a little more pride in yourself and in your brains than to fall for their now-decades long B.S.?
Haven't any of you Millennials out there read Fahrenheit 451?
"Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year [JEOPARDY, comes to mind]. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel they're thinking... Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy... So bring on your clubs and parties, your acrobats and magicians, your daredevils, jet cars, motorcycle helicopters, your sex and heroin, more of everything to do with automatic reflex. If the drama is bad, if the film says nothing, if the play is hollow, sting me with theremin, loudly. I'll think I'm responding to the play. when it's only a tactile reaction to vibration. But I don't care. I just like solid entertainment."Facebook. Twitter. Instagram. Snapchat. Jon Stewart. Stephen Colbert. Glozell. Youtube. "57 [thousand] channels and nothing on."
Oh, yeah, we're there already. We're in Fahrenehit 451, in far too many ways: "parlor walls"...caring more about personal, immediate gratification and entertainment than even noticing impending annihilation...“It didn't come from the Government down. There was no dictum, no declaration, no censorship, to start with, no! Technology, mass exploitation, and minority pressure carried the trick, thank God.”..."'Go home.' Montag fixed his eyes upon her, quietly. 'Go home and think of your first husband divorced and your second husband killed in a jet and your third husband blowing his brains out, go home and think of the dozen abortions you've had, go home and think of that and your damn Caesarian sections, too, and your children who hate your guts! Go home and think how it all happened and what did you ever do to stop it? Go home, go home!' he yelled."
