With the names Obama, Clinton and McCain sucking up all the oxygen in the room, I thought it only fair to give one of the smaller parties a little attention. Let's take a look at Green Party candidate Cynthia McKinney, whose campaign web site shows an endorsement from convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu Jamal, in one of her campaign appearances, as posted at the United for Peace and Justice web site. She begins by applauding the Holy Land Foundation defendants before moving on to excoriating the "traditional enemy." (My term.) From the video intro:
On 02/02/08, Cynthia McKinney, the 2008 Green Party presidential nominee, speaks at a fund raiser of the Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA).
She describes the hostile takeover of American politics by pro-Israeli groups, aided by congress on both sides of the aisle.
She details the resulting corrosion of American society, a corrosion that represents a particular threat to Muslims and their civil liberties.
