Elections do have consequences, and, unfortunately for the residents of district 8, these consequences are embodied in the individual known as Alan Grayson.
On a positive note, our Founding Fathers established a system that allows Americans to correct past mistakes – elections. Mr. Grayson, November is coming…
GOP: Grayson Exhibits ‘Pathological Pattern of Instability and Deceit’
By Byron York
Republicans are fuming over another attack ad from Florida Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson. The confrontational lawmaker, who falsely accused GOP opponent Daniel Webster of being a draft-dodger, now calls Webster “Taliban Dan” in an ad that FactCheck.org says uses “edited video to make [Webster] appear to be saying the opposite of what he really said.”
The “Taliban Dan” ad features video snippets from remarks Webster made to a Christian gathering in 2009. Addressing a group of men, Webster discussed the Biblical admonition for wives to submit to husbands, telling them they should not use the passage as a guide for their married lives. But the Grayson ad pulled out bits of video to make it appear that Webster was telling women to submit to their husbands. Here is the transcript of the Grayson ad:
Announcer: Religious fanatics tried to take away our freedom in Afghanistan, in Iran and right here in Central Florida.
Webster: Wives submit yourselves to your own husband.
Announcer: Daniel Webster wants to impose his radical fundamentalism on us.
Webster: She should submit to me. That’s in the Bible.
Announcer: Webster tried to deny battered women medical care, and the right to divorce their abusers.
Webster: Submit to me.
Announcer: He wants to force raped women to bear the child.
Webster: Submit to me.
Announcer: Taliban Dan Webster. Hands off our bodies, and our laws.
Here is a transcript of what Webster actually said:
So, write a journal. Second, find a verse. I have a verse for my wife, I have verses for my wife. Don’t pick the ones that say, ‘She should submit to me.’ That’s in the Bible, but pick the ones that you’re supposed to do. So instead, ‘love your wife, even as Christ loved the Church and gave himself for it’ as opposed to ‘wives submit to your own husbands.’ She can pray that, if she wants to, but don’t you pray it.
Grayson ripped Webster’s words so far out of context that it approaches, or perhaps reaches, the point of slander. Coming on the heels of the “draft dodger” attack, the “Taliban Dan” ad has left Republicans outraged. “Alan Grayson’s hate-filled lies are unconscionable and they exhibit a pathological pattern of instability and deceit,” says Ken Spain, communications director of the National Republican Congressional Committee. “For the past two years, his vitriolic remarks and unpredictable behavior have become an embarrassment to the voters he promised to represent.”
Grayson, meanwhile, has not only not withdrawn his ads — he has released yet another. His latest commercial shows tender scenes of Grayson playing with children to the tune of the gospel song, “This Little Light of Mine, I’m Gonna Let it Shine.” Really.
