This past October, the Bound helped to break the news about the Obama operation’s recruitment of actors to constitute their MTV-oriented “town hall” meeting, just prior to the 2010 General Elections.
Sadly, we pass on the following, about this last night’s highly slanted, though sometimes subtle memorial rally (er, pep service?) from Anthony Martin, et. al. Somewhere, Sen. Paul Wellstone may be turning over in… something.
Might all this media hype and political celebration stemming from such a tragedy encourage a copy-cat maniac to claim another shooting spree for his own?
Breaking…memorial service in Tucson turns into political rally
January 12th, 2011 8:54 pm ET
Even before the first words were spoken at this evening’s memorial service for the victims of Saturday’s massacre in Tucson, the atmosphere turned overtly political.
White House operatives passed out t-shirts to the crowd with Obama’s new campaign logo, ‘Together We Thrive.’ The words were also taped to the seats in which mourners would sit during the service.
During Wednesday night’s memorial service of the fallen and wounded in the Arizona shooting tragedy attendees received a free t-shirt with a “Together We Thrive” logo emblazon on the front. Many conservatives were outraged that the President and university organizers politicized the event.
Conservative writer Michelle Malkin wrote, “President Obama used to preach that there was no “Red America” and no “Blue America,” just one America. But tonight at the memorial for the Tucson massacre victims, it will be a sea of blue as the White House unveils the “Together We Thrive” logo and slogan. Yes, the Tucson massacre is being branded.”
Televised records of the event depict a cheering crowd, not mournful spectators paying homage to the dead. An Indian invocation was offered at the beginning of the event, followed by cheers from a crowd that reacted more like the audience at a rock concert than a memorial service.
There were no Christian clergy present on the platform.
To this “target audience,” Obama may have gotten away with following his attack dogs’ lead, by lamenting a “lack of civility” (which of course, means the calling out of his globalist, neo-Marxist a.k.a., communist agenda) while at the same time puffing and propping himself up as an anti-blaming peacemaker — and what’s more, the standard bearer of a greater perfectibility of man — through government, of course.
Wow, any fellow Marxist should be proud and celebratory, indeed. Now, such a devotee may not have liked the evening’s prolonged pagan prayer any more than a Christian would, but, why split feathers-er-hairs?
