If you have any friends who live in Massachusetts, I hope you’ll send them the link to this terrific, heartbreaking article by my friend, Wall Street Journal editorial board member and author Dorothy Rabinowitz, about how Massachusetts U.S. Senate candidate Martha Coakley destroyed a family and sent them to prison when she knew the whole case was phony.
She Destroyed the Amirault Family; Only Worried About Gitmo Terrorists
And send it to your friends before Tuesday’s special election for the Massachusetts U.S. Senate seat. It’s so important that you send it to friends who were planning on not voting Tuesday or who were planning to vote for anyone other than Scott Brown (a vote for the libertarian candidate, Joe Kennedy, will help elect this witch Coakley).
As you may know, Dorothy, who does great investigative reporting, has been on the case of the outrageous, trumped up prosecution of the Amirault Family of Massachusetts and has exposed it as baseless in her reporting over the last three decades. The Amiraults–hard-working, successful people who busted their asses to get off of welfare and make something of themselves–were sent to prison on ridiculous, phony, coached child molestation charges, without a shred of evidence. And Martha Coakley, as a prosecutor, was chief among those who destroyed that innocent family.
What does this say about her candidacy? (Ms. Coakley declined to be interviewed.) If the current attorney general of Massachusetts actually believes, as no serious citizen does, the preposterous charges that caused the Amiraults to be thrown into prison—the butcher knife rape with no blood, the public tree-tying episode, the mutilated squirrel and the rest—that is powerful testimony to the mind and capacities of this aspirant to a Senate seat. It is little short of wonderful to hear now of Ms. Coakley’s concern for the rights of terror suspects at Guantanamo—her urgent call for the protection of the right to the presumption of innocence.
If the sound of ghostly laughter is heard in Massachusetts these days as this campaign rolls on, with Martha Coakley self-portrayed as the guardian of justice and civil liberties, there is good reason.
Read the whole thing. It will break your heart and make you angry, as it should.
And, again, please send the article to all of your friends, telling them why it is so important to go to the polls and vote for Scott Brown on Tuesday. Even friends who do not live in Massachusetts may have other friends who do.
If for no other reason than this (and there are plenty of other reasons), we cannot allow this woman–who cares more about the “innocence” and “rights” of murderous Islamic terrorists in Gitmo than she does about innocent hard-working Americans–to attain a U.S. Senate seat. Regardless of ideology, basic human decency requires and demands that she be defeated for what she did to the Amiraults.
Learn more about what happened to the Amiraults and Martha Coakley’s role in it, from an excellent interview Dorothy Rabinowitz did on C-SPAN.
BTW, for readers who want to know why I dislike Mark Levin, Dorothy Rabinowitz is one of the reasons why. He repeatedly, viciously attacked Dorothy Rabinowitz on his nationally-syndicated radio show as, among other things, “an old bag.” Her crime: supporting John McCain for President. Not that, in his 50s, Mr. Levin is exactly a spring chicken, himself. A longtime conservative and investigative journalist crusader for truth and what is right, she’s done more for other Americans than Mark Levin can ever dream about. She helped free the Amiraults and other American families falsely accused of child molestation. Levin helped free, um . . . oh, never mind.
When I was an undergrad and conservative activist at the cancerous, far-left Unversity of Michigan in the late ’80s, my father sent me a subscription to “Conservative Chronicle,” a compendium of syndicated conservative columnists. Back then, Dorothy Rabinowitz was a syndicated conservative columnist, whose terrific columns and groundbreaking work were (and remain) unmatched on figures like Yasser Arafat, Jesse Jackson, etc. “Read Dorothy Rabinowitz’s columns, this week,” my Dad would urge me over the phone. “They’re the best.”
