MARCOTTE HAS BEEN TAKEN DOWN!
At a 9:30 Conference call with Bill Donohue this morning, Catholic leaders unified and committed to a full blown campaign against Edwards and his defiant anti-Catholicism.
We were barely off the phone when Bill sent another message saying that the Edwards-hired potty mouth bigot struck again.
"I was hired by the Edwards campaign for the skills and talents I bring to the table, and my willingness to work hard for what’s right. Unfortunately, Bill Donohue and his calvacade of right wing shills don’t respect that a mere woman like me could be hired for my skills, and pretended that John Edwards had to be held accountable for some of my personal, non-mainstream views on religious influence on politics (I’m anti-theocracy, for those who were keeping track).
Bill Donohue—anti-Semite, right wing lackey whose entire job is to create non-controversies in order to derail liberal politics—has been running a scorched earth campaign to get me fired for my personal beliefs and my writings on this blog. "
Anti-Semite? She's going to be sorry she said that.
She goes on...
"In fact, he’s made no bones about the fact that his intent is to “silence” me, as if he—a perfect stranger—should have a right to curtail my freedom of speech. Why? Because I’m a woman? Because I’m pro-choice? Because I’m not religious? All of the above, it seems."
No. It's simply that the freedom to hate Catholics is against the law and there's a price to be paid. One down, one to go.
Marcotte drivels on about what a victory the attempt to make Catholic hating part of a Presidential campaign almost was...and then is mystified:
"Obviously, I’m scatterbrained right now. But I’ll be raring to go soon. In the meantime, I want to share this letter Evan got from Frances Kissling, the president of an organization I adore called Catholics for a Free Choice. She wrote a letter defending free discourse and her religion from being hijacked by the likes of Bill Donohue and other people who dress their reactionary politics up in faith’s clothing. She sent it to the NY Times, and for some reason they didn’t run it."
Could it be she's an apostate that's been excommunicated?
This was my favorite part:
"It’s come to my attention that Donohue’s attempts to separate the Edwards campaign from their employees that were chosen for our skills and talents may in fact be in violation of the tax laws.
Speaking out against a presidential candidate operating on an anti-Catholic agenda is
going to cause them to get litigious with Donohue?!!!
How utterly entertaining.
They have no idea the wave that is about to head their direction.
Bring it on!
Lots of luck having the prolife community on your head for attacking their hero!
