Tennessee Democrats Compare Republicans To Special Olympics Children


Click for full size disgustingness

October 12, 2004 – Democrats in a race for a state House seat in District 82, are circulating a flyer that shows a retarded child with President Bush’s face running in a track race. The headline says: “Voting for Bush Is Like Running In The Special Olympics: Even If You Win, You’re Still Retarded.”

The flyer is being distributed by Democrat Craig Fitzhugh. His opponent, Dave Dahl has issued a call to Fitzhugh to stop distributing the flyer.

According to Dahl, “Hard-ball politics is one thing and everyone expects tough battles, but using those who are born with mental disabilities for political fodder is disgusting.”

Dahl says the flyers have been distributed for at least two weeks from Fitzhugh’s campaign office in Ripley, Tennessee. It also serves as the Kerry-Edwards headquarters. “At first, I really did not believe that Fitzhugh and the Democrats would stoop to such gutter politics, but then people started bringing the flyer to me at the end of last week. I was shocked and disgusted.”

“This kind of reckless disregard for those who suffer from mental disabilities is much larger than any state representative race. This act is so atrocious and indecent that my campaign will be sending a copy of the Fitzhugh flyer to the United States Special Olympics Committee, the Special Olympics International Group and state and national advocacy groups who work with and support special needs children and adults.”

This most recent attack on Republicans as mentally handicapped is not new. On October 28, 1994, while in Virginia, then-Vice President Al Gore attacked Oliver North's Senate bid supporters as "the extreme right wing, the extra chromosome right wing." Advocates for those with Down's Syndrome, caused by an extra chromosome, were outraged.

This goes beyond the pale ... it makes me want to puke! Here is the sick fuck that is distributing this vile thing ... Craig Fitzhugh.

I have already fired off several emails to local media outlets. Go here and do the same.

Update: TeamGOP has issued a press release, and Michelle Malkin is all over this and has more ... Fitzhugh's office is giving her the run-around ... go figure.

Update: Bill Hobbs has more ... lots more. Go see.

Be sure to check the comment here left by "catalexis" ... He/she doesn't like the moniker "moonbat" ... that's OK. I kind of prefer "Morlock" myself. I almost didn't let the comment through ... the first paragraph is nice, just what I would hope to hear from Dems when others of their party step across the line. But then "catalexis" loses it and demonstrates for us the typical mind-set of the left ... it's funny, in a pathetic sort of way. I'm tempted to suggest reading comprehension courses, but I don't think that's the problem. So, I will just put up the comment, and then point and laugh.

I agree that the ad is tasteless, and I join in the rubuke of any Democrat that advocates or circulates such insensitive tripe. I am a fervent Liberal and reject the politics of mean spirited, stereotypeing, viciousness from all sides. I hope that people of goodwill from both political parties can move beyond such small minded attacks and embrace a genuine debate on the future of America in the world and how we need to overcome this divisive name calling.

Now, about that "moonbats" thing you throw around? Oh and the guy on the left side of the photograph on your Sept 16 photo is actually the son of the man making the complaint and if you would look at the edges of the sign in the photo you would see that it is a fake shot, he's made this same phony complaint three times now.

If you want to vote for Bush, go ahead, you don't even need to to win a single debate, you can vote for him with no justification whatsoever, but just stop lieing, OK, is that too goddamn much to ask?

You know, I never thought that the Democrats would stoop this low. I know that Politics uses dirty tricks (let's be honest, both sides do it). This is a step FAR below the belt. I'm sicked to my core that this could be made and distributed. I hope that this is sent to the Liberal News Media. I want to hear what they have to say. I was already sickened by Edwards' remark that, "If you vote for Bush, you've lost your mind."

This just goes to show how deperate the democrats really are.

There's another update for you all. This turns out not to be an ad by Democrats at all but a Rovian-like set up. http://tinyurl.com/5j64w.

And I am anything but a typical Lefty. If there were more Democrats like me there would be less Senators like Zell Miller or Joe Lieberman.

I'm more in favor of the likes of Jon Stewart, who gave such a well diserved smackdown to those two hacks, Carlson and Begala, on Crossfire last night.

Nice site design by the way, found you through the blogshares listing.
