Jihad Cindy Strikes Again

By Debbie Schlussel
For those of us who’ve been following Democratic Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) a/k/a “Jihad Cindy” (not to be confused with Jihad Cindy #2, Cindy Sheehan), her assault on a Capitol Police officer (she punched him) is no surprise. Nor is her race-card playing. It’s par for the course.
To revisit my 2001 column on Jihad Cindy:

McKinney has a strong record of hating America. During the recent U.N. World Conference Against Racism, she joined the Arab world . . . and Third World republics in attacking the U.S. While there (and overseas–the conference was in Africa), in pushing for slavery reparations, McKinney said the White House is “just full of latent racists.”

Bill Clinton was in the White House then, FYI.

Jihad Cindy Packs a Mean Punch

Just after 9/11, when extremist billionaire and Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Al-Saud offered New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani $10 million if the U.S. would change it’s policy in Israel, morally excusing the murder of 3,000 Americans, Jihad Cindy wrote the Prince a Letter. In it, she chastised Giuliani for denying the Prince’s right to speak (he didn’t). Then she wrote that a baby born in Asia has a much better life than a Black baby born in the U.S. More from my column:

“Your Royal Highness, the state of Black America is not good.” McKinney wrote, “There are many people in America who desperately need your generosity,” making the false assertion that a black baby born in Harlem has a worse life expectancy than one born in Bangladesh.

Remember, this was days after 9/11, and Jihad Cindy is attacking our country to a high-ranking Prince (his uncle was Saudi King Fahd) of the country from where 15 of the hijackers emanated.
Speaking of 9/11, McKinney is all about the tin-foil theories of who is behind the attacks, and she held House hearings on it. Hint: She doesn’t think it’s Al-Qaeda. But when it came to real investigation, when former FBI Counter-terrorism Director Oliver “Buck” Revell wanted to show minutes of a documentary on Islamic terrorists in America, she balked and protested.
Then there’s Jihad Cindy’s obsession with defending Black Panther cop killers. Not to mention her close association with the Nation of Islam’s loony leader Louis Farrakhan, who sent his top lieutenants to run her failed 2002 campaign.
When my good friend, John Mitnick, now a White House counsel, ran against Jihad Cindy in 1996, she and her father used anti-Semitic statements about him, referring to him as “that racist Jew.” (They made similar statements when McKinney was defeated in a Democratic primary in 2002.)
So it’s no surprise that she employed and then had to fire Rayed Tayeh, a former employee of a HAMAS front-group when he wrote a letter to the editor of a Capitol Hill newspaper, accusing Jewish Congressmen of being disloyal to America. Tayeh went on to lead the Muslim boycott of Starbucks for the crime of having a Jewish CEO. (I debated him on FOX News’ “O’Reilly Factor” and MSNBC’s “Hardball” on the topic.)
That’s Jihad Cindy in a nutshell. So, the latest assault on law and order by this nutty Congresswoman should be no surprise.
The surprise is that she continues to be a respected member of the Democratic Party and House Democratic Caucus. In my column, I wrote that Jihad Cindy is the modern-day Hanoi Jane. But I was wrong.
Jane Fonda was only in film. Jihad Cindy is far worse: She’s a Member of Congress.

Oh yeah, now I remember why I got off the force and went to grad school.

I have this image of Cynthia McKinney rushing past the Capitol Police officer without her I.D., then yelling “badges?, I don’t have to show you any stinking badges!”

She didn’t hit no cop;she hit a watt baw(“Excuse me mam,we have you clocked at 85 in a 35 zone.Oops,sorry I didn’t recognize you Oprah”).Hopefully,the master cinematographer from the Rodney King video filmed it-and with Danny Glover and Harry Belafonte fresh off their endorsement of Hugo Chavez,they rebuild the beloved Royal Theatre on Seven Mile’ in Detroi’and bring back the era of 35 cint fo’ a double feature with ‘The Marion Barry Story-Bitch
Set Me Up’ & ‘Do I Look Like Oprah,Foo’?’

Although she is certainly not the only example of what is wrong with universal suffrage, she will do for now.
The original idea of voting was to allow this privilege to stakeholders. Now, it is little more than an exercise in tribalism gone wild.
And these tribes are not only race-based. They might be as simple as the “R” team or the “D” team.
As long as a crack addict has the same vote as you do, there is really no point in worrying about anything else regarding the direction this country will take.

I hope the police officer Cynthia McKinney punched does not back down, and she gets jail time. If anyone in the country should have a cavity search prior to entering government buildings, it is Cynthia McKinney. Her racist, anti-Americanism makes her a prime candidate for terrorism, and I do not mean by suicide belt. Being a self-centered narcissist, Cynthia McKinney would never endanger herself; but her access to confidential documents should frighten any American with a brain.

Red Ryder and Bernard:
Excellent observations. In the end, everyone and I mean everyone is concerned about their own tribe — save one. Being concerned about your own tribe is a quite natural element of the human condition and is to be expected. But there is one tribe that because of their overwhelming sense of fair-play and charity towards others has been abused to the point of absurdity. The ones who are doing the abusing would not tolerate for a second what they dish out to others.
As Bernard says, the thought of this woman having access to confidential documents is chilling indeed.

Anyone care to see some of the tactics used by the abusers? Go to Michelle Malkin’s site:
http://www.michellemalkin.com
And look for this story: “NBC: STAGING THE NEWS AGAIN?”
You see, this is designed to play on your sense of false guilt. By presenting a favored tribe as mistreated, you will start feeling sorry for them and begin to dispossess yourselves in their favor and often to your own harm. This tactic is especially effective with women being that they are disposed to being gentle and nurturing.
I am quite aware of all their tactics and what they are intended to produce. Unfortunately, too many others are not. Pity, that.

This is just the latest in a long procession of examples of what happens when we allow government to grow big and out of control. States rights is an anachronism.
Our constitution is my birth right. I want a government that respects the constitution. Then the idiots that get voted into office will have less power. There will be less corruption and fewer Wacos.

Like some of you, I would have no sympathy if Jihad Cindy is actually prosecuted. My fear is that she will not. If she is, does anyone doubt that she will play the race card…again? Maybe then we will [sarcastically] refer to her as Martyr McKinnon. Better yet, send her to Gitmo…or…Abu Garhaib, since she is so anti-American; then she will feel more at home.

Another rant:
This Rep needs to read the story “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”. Then she should take a look around her at all of the other races who have made it out of the economic cellar of our society and study how they did it.
She cites the tired and bogus theory that all of her problems and presumably all the problems of the black race are simply because they are black. My obervation is that the problems of black society are caused largely by their own behavior.
My obervations are that they trend toward being lazy, unmotivated, impulsive, sexually promiscuous and uneducated with lower intelligence. I would be depressed about this if it were not for fine role models like Condoleeza Rice, Colin Powell and others. Too bad they are more respected by non blacks than blacks. As I write this, black Republican Senate hopeful from Maryland, Michael Steele is being slammed by black Democrats for acting white because he is a conservative who espouses personal responsibility and self help.
Nice.

Update: “NBC: STAGING THE NEWS AGAIN?”
Well, the word is out now about the “anti-Muslim sting” that NBC was so carefully crafting. Yes indeed, it’s all over the blogosphere. Alas, the unwashed masses still don’t get it. Many are presenting the story on their sites as something to be condemned to be sure but are missing the more sinister intent of NBC’s piece.
Anyone ever seen that tiny little insect that bites the much larger cockroach and then controls it? The little insect injects its poison into the cockroach which doesn’t kill it but rather stuns it. The little insect then grabs the cockroach by one of its antennae and leads it back to its den to be devoured later by its offspring. The cockroach, with its mind confused by the poison, obediently obeys the much smaller insect and allows itself to be led off the path of its own choosing.
That’s one way to describe it. The statist planners never give up. They are, quite literally, destroying our country from within and without ever a shot being fired. Is this all some grand conspiracy? No, but the collective effects make it appear as one. And the results are the same.

I frankly think my dears is that her hairdo was new.
Either the police officer didn’t watch CSpan enough or he did and when she walked through, he
didn’t recognize her new HAIR DO!!!!
So..it is undoubtedly a reprisal for the Republicans losing the ‘Hammer.’
Plus, she voted against the Iraq war..Republicans can’t stand that!!!!

DeBodine: Do you have any good links for that NBC piece you mentioned? I only heard about it briefly on the radio and I’d like to read more about it.

Concerned Conservative on April 5, 2006 at 10:35 am

Concerned Conservative: A good place to start is the link I posted: http://www.michellemalkin.com
The story is “NBC: STAGING THE NEWS AGAIN?” from April 4. Michelle is a workaholic and updates her pages frequently so you’ll have to scroll down to see where the story actually begins — with the intercepted emails of our Muslim friends.
Don’t be surprised if Debbie’s site here is also included in NBC’s hit-piece against people who are racist anti-Muslims. If only I had the time to reveal all I know about these folks…
