Barbara Coe's Thoughts on the Obama New Yorker Cover
Seemingly everybody and their political consultant has opined on this week's New Yorker cover that mockingly shows Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama dressed as a Muslim imam giving a fist rap to wife Michelle, who's dressed a Hezbollah warrior princess. Even old, wretched Barbara Coe, head witch of the California Coalition for Immigration Reform. On Monday, Coe sent off a graphic of the cover to her email list, with the thought, "Is this a 'parody' or did The New Yorker share the TRUTH?
What 'truth,' Babs? That Obama is a Muslim? WRONG. That he's a terrorist? WRONG. Manchurian Muslim? WRONG. That Islamofascists are funding Obama? Yesterday, Coe forwarded an email she received from Ted Hayes, the homeless activist turned unwitting Commie that contained an article purportedly written by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd about Obama's shady fundraising. "Many thanks for this New York Times article," Coe wrote. "If the stats and facts the reporter, Maureen Dowd, can be confirmed, we fully agree with her that there should be an in-depth investigation. We MUST know whether or not known Muslim terrorists OR anti-American Chinese are funding Obama's campaign."
Oh, but Coe didn't wait for any confirmation on an article shown to be a lie. That Coe remains a hero for the anti-immigrant movement says more about the state of the anti-illegal movement than anything. Come on, Know Nothings: defend your fact-free female fool!
