The biggest threat to the American political system is the immoral and often illegal activity of Republican smear gangs. These covert hit squads use private Republican money and sophisticated PR techniques to spread libelous rumors about Americans who threaten the authoritarian status quo in politics. In the 2000 Presidential campaign, John McCain was attacked by these smear gangs when it looked like he was about to beat George W. Bush in the primaries. In 2004, these same smear gangs took down John Kerry when he was ahead in the polls, accusing him of lying about his military service. After speaking out against the Bush White House’s lies on Iraq, Joe Wilson and his wife Valerie Plame were assaulted by these same Republican smear gangs. And there are many more instances where Republican gangs ride into our political system on the backs of millions in shady money to silence dissent with fear and threats.

The more a candidate speaks out against the radical right, the more ferocious these smear gangs campaign against them.

The newest Republican smear gang has already set out to hunt down their next prey: Senator Barack Obama (IL). The basis of the gang attack? Repeat Obama's middle name "Hussein" as a tactic for convincing Americans that Barack Obama is a covert terrorist.

The New Face of Hate: Smearing A Democrat As a Terrorist
No matter what your view on Barack Obama as a presidential candidate (I am only beginning to look at the field of candidates for '08), Americans simply cannot allow these immoral Republican smear gangs to ride roughshod over our electoral system--threatening and intimidating as they go.

We must shed light on these gangs and drive them out of town in shame.

As of this moment, right now, I declare that Americans will not stand for anymore smear gangs in American politics.

In response to what I thought was just a vicious rumor, I was angered to discover that the smear gangs have already started a whisper campaign against Barack Obama. Consider, for example, the following post I found on I warn all Frameshop readers: this quoted post below is clearly the work of a Republican lynch gang running a strategy to ruin the political future and life of an American in public service:

Barak Hussein Obama

Barak Obama a Muslim apostate headed for the White House?

Move over, Hillary, Barak Obama is here.

Some Dems can trump Material Girl Madonna reinventing themselves. During the last presidential campaign, John Kerry made much of having the same initials as President JFK.

Barak Hussein Obama’s name only rhymes with Saddam Hussein Osama.
As Gateway Pundit aptly points out, "Lincoln was a humble man. He did not compare himself after six months in office to great men from history."

Looking at his day job, the Senator from Illinois is a senior lecturer in constitutional law at the University of Chicago. Make that the Rockefeller-funded U of C, a school that is Rockefeller down to the bone.

Obama’s Dad, a Muslim from Kenya, left home when he was two. His Mom remarried and went with her new husband to Indonesia where Obama lived during his salad years. It is well known that Obama, the teenager lived with his grandparents in Hawaii, where he attended the same school attended by Hawaii royalty. Yet little is known about who Obama’s step father was. But some say that he was an Indonesian national and a Muslim.

Still, Obama must have attended school in Indonesia. Is it possible that as a young Muslim boy he went to a Saudi madrassa?

Yes, that’s a possibility.

The chapters in the Life and Times of Barak Obama always race ahead. It was during one of those chapters when we found him taking up community organizing in the Altgeld Gardens housing project on the south side of Chicago, when he converted to Christianity, formerly being secular. (

As a fledgling Christian, Obama didn’t join just any church. He joined the United Church of Christ.

The United Church of Christ is very anti-Israel and supports divestment. It also sponsors speeches at its many functions by the Arab "Christian" pro-terror religious organization, Sabeel. Sabeel holds some of its biggest meetings in Chicago., (www.scoop.,co, nz/stories/HL05 10/500139.htm).

The Democrats attract the majority of Jewish voters and funding, and this guy is being grooned as their golden boy?

Essentially Obama is a Christian convert--but also then a Muslim apostate.

The "What If" category of "the new face of change and reform for the democratic party" doesn’t get written up by the mainstream media.

What if Obama is engaged in pious fraud? This is a Muslim practice of pretending not to be Muslim to further the cause of Islam or to "defend the faith". He becomes President and then says, "Gee…I think I want to be Muslim again" after he finds the "football" in his hands that carries the launch codes for the USA nuke forces.

Is the "New Face" theory espoused in USA Today, New Face as in the "Portrait of Dorian Grey"?

What if Obama’s into Pious Fraud Islam–Hudaibiyah treaty"kiss the hand of your enemy until you can cut it off"? (www.freerepubl ws/708295/posts. Not Obama? Remember the pictures of the little kids bobbing their heads up and down at the madrassas? They are all of the age Obama would have been in back in Indonesia.

What if the converted-to-Christianity Barak Obama decides to exercise his right to revert back?
Then what?

Currently, Obama is an apostate as far as Islam is concerned. This is a fact and not a conspiracy theory. They say all babies are born Muslim but then parents of infidel religions brainwash the baby Muslims into other lesser faiths. That is a fact.

What must be done with an apostate of the Muslim faith? Give him a chance to convert back to Islam.
Obama is soft on the handover of the ports to Dubai.

Meanwhile hype notwithstanding, "the new face of change and reform for the democratic party" is no Abe Lincoln, but could be the most upwardly mobile Muslim of the millennium.

And so there we have it: A whisper campaign accusing Barak Obama of being a Muslim who converted to Christianity just to pretend he was an infidel, so he could get his hands on the U.S. nuclear codes and blow up America. Barack Obama, in other words--according to this Republican gang smear campaign--is a terrorist sleeper cell.

News that Republican smear gangs have started hunting down yet another candidate with false accusations of treason--should make every American angry enough to speak out.

The "Hidden Terrorist" Frame
When Republicans accuse a sitting Senator of being a covert terrorist, America is jerked back violently to the days of McCarthyism, and even further than that, some might see, to the days when lynching terrorized small towns in America--intimidating people from speaking out the public sphere.

Americans cannot allow our country to be overrun by this kind of immorality again. We simply cannot.

We must speak back. But how?

For starters, those of us with an interest in protecting our political system from smear gangs must be fearless in the face of this fear and hate. Intimidation is the tactic of these smear gangs. Our silence is their goal. Speaking back is the best way to stop them.

And the best way we can speak back is to frame their actions in no uncertain terms--to call them what they are:

- "Americans will not allow these Republican smear gangs to take over our political system anymore!"

- "These whisper campaigns accusing Democrats of being covert terrorists are the work of Republican gangs."

- "Swiftboated yesterday, accused of terrorism today--these smear gangs must be stopped!"

Those phrases can get us started by drawing attention to the immoral and organized groups behind these tactics.

We must stop them before they damage our political system even more than they already have.
