"Obama HQ has Che Guevara and Cuban flag on the wall"
Obama HQ has Che Guevara and Cuban flag on the wall
[Which the DUmmies heartily approve except for the fact that it might cause poor widdle Obama to be "swiftboated" by EVIL rightwingers.]
Bayou City has a new Obama campaign office, and the Houston branch of FOX has a video report here. Not big news. But if you watch the video, you might notice something a bit... uh... weird:
[You mean like a communist thug being presented heroically on a foreign flag on the wall?]
Yes, it seems that they have a Cuban flag - with a superimposed portrait of Che Guevara - on the wall. Now, I appreciate that some progressives admire Che. But when you've got TV cameras rolling, is it really the best idea to be identifying yourself with a man who most of the country (including a lot of Dems) consider to have been a bloody murderer?
[Psst! We really love Che Guevara but we must keep it a secret from outsiders. It is the love that dare not speak its name.]
It suggests to me that some of these people are far from ready for the primetime. McCain will eat amateurs like these for breakfast. It also kinda makes me wonder what sort of "new support" is being brought into the party. I think Dems can live quite happily without the Viva Fidel contingent.
[You mean live without DUmmies since they are mostly of the Viva Fidel contingent as were the Obama folks shown in these videos.]
This is a blunder for sure
[Yes. It is an error to let outsiders find out how we commie-libs REALLY feel.]
I noticed DU has a Che avatar too. Big deal
[Correct. Che Guevara avatars abound in DUmmieland.]
So does almost every college dorm in America...and who is volunteering there. Still probably not a brilliant idea to have that right there for the cameras when trying to win in Texas.
[Psst! Don't let outsiders know how much we love that commie thug!]
Bad move, people. That will probably be a sound byte by tomorrow.
[Good news! The MSM is still ignoring this.]
Hasta la Victoria Siempre! Viva la Revolucion!
[Socialismo o Muerte!]
I noticed that there are no Obama signs there or any other indications either.
[Better make an appointment with your optomotrist. There is an Obama poster clearly visible in the video next to the Che Guevara flag.]
Apparently, you didn't watch the video. There's a close-up of the Obama poster in it.
[Thank you for pointing out the obvious.]
That has to be fake
[Sure, sure. Those Che Guevara flags were photoshopped in by the EVIL Fox News.]
Is Che Guevara the boogie man? Please let me know. My understanding is that he is a great Latin American Hero, and yes, he was a revolutionary. Sounds like that's what George Washington was as well. I have seen many here at DU with that avatar. Are we really that concerned about the f*cked up GOP assholes to this extent?
[In DUmmieland that commie is a great hero.]
"To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary...These procedures are an archaic bourgeois detail. This is a revolution! And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate. We must create the pedagogy of the The Wall! (El Paredón)" --Ernesto 'Che' Guevara
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
Actually, SMART people watched the video link and saw THESE ARE HIS PEOPLE, with HIS POSTER on the wall, it is HIS BUTTON on HER COAT, and they are IN HIS/THEIR CAMPAIGN OFFICE. Maybe my remarks were stupid. MAYBE, just maybe, it is really NOT their flag - but good luck with that since it IS next to OBAMA'S poster, it IS behind OBAMA's supporters, and it IS in OBAMA's campaign office.
[Not much room for deniability there. Hee! Hee!]
A blind dog can open an "office" It is in no way official or sanctioned.
[Did that same blind dog also eat your homework?]
go che. Power to the People.
[Which Obama office do you work at?]
Surely you realize that this can be used against him?
[And you DUmmies will call it "swiftboating."]
The Republicans are going to tell everyone who Che Guevara is!!!
[Damn them for that history lesson!]
These people need to think and be more careful. I guarantee you that there are Repubs collecting any kind of material like this to use against him if he is the nominee.
[Li'l Beaver is also collecting this material. Hee! Hee!]
I won't say it's not an office or that it's not paid staff, but what with it being Fox News and all could they have invented this? Could we put it past them?
[Toss out that "fake video" lifeline.]
I'll be going down there for the volunteer meeting at seven Tuesday. I'll letcha know if it's still up. I expect that it won't be.
[Yes. Let us know if that Obama office has been sanitized.]
I find it very difficult to believe anyone interested enough in politics to join a campaign would be naive enough to not understand what effect that flag would have. I just don't believe someone in that position could be that ignorant.
[I don't have any trouble believing this. With the plethora of Che Guevara T-shirts and posters out there, leftists would think that a Che flag on a campaign office wall is quite normal. It happened not just once but TWICE in the Houston area.]
Unbelievable. I can see the fall commercial now. I we need is Barack riding around in a tank with a helmet like Dukakis
[While wearing a Che Guevara T-shirt.]
Oh no Freerepublic already has this as one of their top stories
[Also the DUmmie FUnnies. Hee! Hee!]
The art of Swiftboating consists in smearing the opponent, repeating a lie a million times, until it's too late for all the damage to be undone.
[So what part of the Che Guevara flag on the Obama campaign office wall is a smear?]
