Haha, I promise the title of this post does not reflect how I feel. Also, know that this post is not a poe. This is an email I received from World Net Daily today. I’m not going to bother with extensive commentary, but there are a few remarks and extra links at the bottom. (Note: All the “CLICK HERE” links linked to a Minuteman PAC donation page.) For your convenience, the text is quoted below the image captures.
This is an urgent alert! A fellow patriot, Congressman Joe Wilson, is under severe attack from the left for telling the truth!
Last night, Barack Obama tried once again to sell the American people on his fallacious government health care plan. And he continued the pandering when he claimed, “the reforms I am proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally.”
Rep. Wilson, in a fit of patriot passion, yelled, “You lie!“
FINALLY! Some one said what’s on all of our minds!
No more milquetoast passing of the buck like calling lies “misinformation”, “misdirection”, or “confusion of the facts.” We need to call a lie a lie…and that’s just what Joe Wilson did!
Now, Rep. Wilson is under vehement attack from the Left. Turncoat Sen. Specter is calling for Wilson’s censure and now the forces of the left are using the event to raise thousands of dollars in campaign funds for Wilson’s Democrat opponent.
We MUST rally around Joe Wilson and send a message to our patriots in Washington: “Don’t be afraid to tell the truth! Call a spade a spade!”
The future of our country is at stake, yet the politicos in Washington are more worried about perception and decorum than telling the truth to the American people.
Not backing down, Joe Wilson is defending his argument: that ObamaCare WILL cover illegal aliens.
And he should know:
Rep. Wilson is an immigration attorney in South Carolina AND he helped push amendments to the health care bill that would have expressly prevented coverage for illegal aliens …
… but the Democrats in the House killed those amendments.
This begs a question: If illegal aliens aren’t going to be covered by ObamaCare, then what’s the harm in specifically prohibiting it?
We all know the answer to that question: BECAUSE THEY’RE LYING!!!
Pure and simple.
Now, the pro-amnesty, pro-ObamaCare forces of the left are loading all their guns to take out Joe Wilson.
Are we simply going to stand by and watch while a patriot congressman gets destroyed in the media?
NO! We will fight and defend him. We MUST send the message to Washington that the American people will support and defend leaders who don’t back down to pressure from the media and threats from the Obama White House!
We need to move quickly to send a clarion message to the Left…
… help us act now on behalf of Joe Wilson!
Friends, it’s in times like these that our patriotism and belief in our republic are put to the test. Let’s not fail this test. Let’s not fail Joe Wilson. Join us in ensuring his re-election now!
For the Republic,
P.S. Rep. Joe Wilson called Barack Obama out as a liar in last night’s address to Congress. And now he’s being dragged through mud… simply because he cared more about the truth than about what others think. The Left is doing everything in their power to destroy him, and they’ve already raised thousands for Wilson’s opponent. Help us fight back and defend Joe Wilson.
In case you forgot, missed it, or are just curious, here’s what Wilson said in his “apology”:
This evening I let my emotions get the best of me when listening to the President’s remarks regarding the coverage of illegal immigrants in the health care bill. While I disagree with the President’s statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable. I extend sincere apologies to the President for this lack of civility.
As Rachel Maddow reported last night, he apologized for being rude, but not for being wrong.
This convoluted non-apology is consistent with his ramblings to the press today:
Since last night, Wilson’s 2010 Democratic opponent has raised over $500,000.
Senator Arlen Specter has called for censure.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Wilson used to be a page for Strom Thurmond, and even defended Thurmond from accusations he had an illegitimate daughter with a black woman.
Joe Wilson is also known to have defended the Confederate Flag, claiming, “the Confederate heritage is very honorable” and dismissing any claims of racism or hate as “offensive.”
What a winner. Thanks South Carolina.
