Yes, then-Congressman Mark Foley’s instant messages to a Congressional page who egged him on, were explicit and inappropriate.
But is the guy–who, thus far, has not been proven to have committed any crime–as bad as a terrorist leader who has murdered countless Americans, Israelis, and others?
That’s what a name recognition poll–just out–says, according to the Wall Street Journal’s “Washington Wire“:
Seven in 10 Americans rate him negatively, comparable with past assessments of Yasser Arafat and Michael Jackson.
Mark Foley is not even close to the level of brazen evil of Yasser Arafat. And neither–as bizarre as he is–is Michael Jackson. In addition to ordering and orchestrating countless terror attacks and homicide bombings, Arafat ordered the early ’70s torture murder of Cleo Noel and George Curtis Moore, two U.S. Diplomats in Sudan. They were tortured so badly that authorities could not tell the bodies of Moore–who was the highest ranking Black American in the U.S. Foreign Service at the time–and Noel apart.
Mark Foley is as bad the guy who ordered those murders and countless others?
Get Some Perspective, America. Or our country will die.
