Pull the Ad?

leave a comment »

John Kerry’s blog wants the Bush Blog to pull an ad. An ad which references Hitler.  Reprehensible you say?  And you’d be right.  To use an ad with Hitler in it in connection with a mainstream party candidate for president of the United States is disgusting, demeaning, and despicable.  How could George Bush countenance such a thing?

Well, it turns out he didn’t. The pictures of Hitler in the ad are from Moveon.org, an organization devoted to the defeat of Bush and which is the sponsor if not author of the ad.

So, the Kerry campaign objects to the use of Hitler in campaign ads.  Small wonder, since the Bush campaign is teeing up the use of Hitler by Kerry partisans.  But then, the Kerry campaign was awfully silent when Moveon first put the ad on the internet.  One might almost see a double standard, or a fear of being exposed on the part of the Kerry campaign.  Can’t have it both ways even if that’s the hallmark of John Kerry.  If Kerry supporters are to use Hitler in an anti-Bush ad, then the Bush folks get to note the fact. 

But if you’re John Kerry, that means you get to accuse your opponent of using Hitler.  I mean, it’s not like you used him first.

Update

OxBlog has more.

Update II

And now the Bush Campaign Blog responds:

The Kerry campaign says, “The use of Adolf Hitler by any campaign, politician or party is simply wrong.” We agree.

– Where was John Kerry’s disgust when he hired Zack Exley – the man responsible for encouraging the production of these ads as part of a MoveOn contest – to run the Kerry campaign’s internet operation?

– Where was John Kerry’s sense of outrage when Al Gore, just Thursday afternoon, compared the Bush Administration to the Nazis saying, “The Administration works closely with a network of ‘rapid response’ digital Brown Shirts who work to pressure reporters and their editors for ‘undermining support for our troops.’”

– Where was John Kerry’s anger when Al Gore in May spoke of “Bush’s Gulag”?

– Why has John Kerry not denounced billionaire and Democrat Party donor George Soros for comparing the Bush Administration to Nazis. Soros stated, “When I hear Bush say, ‘You’re either with us or against us,’ it reminds me of the Germans. It conjures up memories of Nazi slogans on the walls, Der Feind Hort mit (’The enemy is listening) wink.”

– Why has Kerry not spoken out against filmmaker Michael Moore who last October compared the Patriot Act to Mein Kampf. “The Patriot Act is the first step. ‘Mein Kampf’ – ‘Mein Kampf’ was written long before Hitler came to power.”

We created this web video to show the depths to which these Kerry supporters will sink to win in November.

Heh.  Game, set, match.
