Don't Spin Facts
The Pilot's Oct. 12 editorial quoted a John McCain supporter who said he was really mad because of socialists taking over America. I agree. In the 1996 Illinois Senate race, Barack Obama was endorsed by The New Party, which claimed him as a member.
This is a far left organization founded by members of the Democratic Socialists of America. Obama's current campaign promises are socialist, such as wealth redistribution (tax cuts for 95 percent of Americans).
Obama's campaign contributed $800,000 to ACORN for voter registrations. ACORN is involved in massive voter fraud. In certain areas, ACORN has registered more voters than population. In Las Vegas, ACORN registered the entire Dallas Cowboys football team. Obama helped ACORN sue banks for not providing enough mortgages to people who couldn't afford them. Our current financial crisis resulted from implementing these socialists' ideas. ACORN's total agenda is socialist.
The Pilot excuses Bill Ayres as a 1960s campus radical whose only connection to Obama was serving on a couple of charity boards. Ayres describes himself as a communist with a small c. Isn't that a socialist? He regrets not having set enough bombs in the 1960s. The Pilot missed this in describing Ayres.
The Pilot commends McCain for asking people to be respectful of Obama. However, Obama and his supporters, including The Pilot, are not respectful of Palin when describing her as "so intoxicated with her sudden rock-star status that she may not realize the dangerous consequences mere words can trigger."
In the spirit of McCain's statement that Obama is a decent family man whom he has disagreements with on fundamental issues, The Pilot should recognize Palin is a decent person. "Realize the dangerous consequences mere words can trigger." Don't spin facts to fit your agenda. That is The New York Times' mission.
