Ralphie makes a cover that he probably won't publicize
Mike Tidmus, as usual, smacks down the Right with another P’shop project…
He notes that this is a big come-down for the former Right Hand of God, who appeared on Time magazine’s cover back in the the day…
Mike also said to check out DefCon, which is dogging the moralists who are knee-deep in the Abramoff scandal.
DefCon has been running these ads in Colorado Springs, NYC, and DC for a week now. Max says he has a thousand angry emails from Dobson’s christ-bots!
James Dobson wasn’t happy with Defcon’s project either. He decided to call out his Christofascist dogs out in one of his e-blasts to the faithful. One of my bloggrrls, Ms. Julien, got a hold of this bleating email.
Leftwing group uses lies to slander Dr. James Dobson
My friend Gary Bauer brought to my attention an ad which ran in Wednesday’s New York Times. “These Religious Leaders Have A Serious Gambling Problem.” The ad viciously attacks a very good friend of mine who is a leader in the pro-family movement-Dr. James Dobson. The “problem” is Jack Abramoff, and the ad goes to great lengths to connect Dr. Dobson to Abramoff.
Anybody who knows Dr. Dobson knows this is nothing more than a libelous charge of guilt by association. Dr. Dobson has opposed gambling all his life. He served on the congressionally mandated National Gambling Impact Study Commission in the late 1990s, which recommended a moratorium on gambling expansion. To date, no one has even demonstrated, much less proven, any connection between Jack Abramoff and Dr. Dobson – because there isn’t one.
While this ad reads like an indictment against Dr. Dobson, it is in reality a declaration of war against the entire pro-family movement. The ad was paid for by the Campaign to Defend the Constitution or DefCon. Its advisory board includes the executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, a former director of the ACLU, the former president of the pro-abortion group NARAL, and a number of “religious Left” leaders, including a homosexual pastor.
DefCon is a project of the Tides Center, a clearinghouse for liberal money, which according to its website has distributed “nearly $400 million to thousands of nonprofits” in the last ten years. The Tides Center is funding DefCon to “become the premiere voice of Americans who are disturbed by the growing power of the religious right…”
The goal of DefCon is to depress religious conservatives by smearing good men like Dr. Dobson. They want to bring down the pro-family movement in the fallout of the Abramoff scandal, hoping values voters won’t go to the polls in November. If they succeed, liberals will not have to filibuster judges because they will have a majority in the Senate. And the Marriage Protection Amendment will be dead on arrival in a House run by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco). This ad is another sign of how low the left wing will stoop.
