Let's assume the stats are accurate as Vyan presents them. Two things: 1. Vyan realizes he has a weak case and thus reverts to the sophomoric argument (as in high school sophomore) that he's not wrong because you can't prove that "black fathers have abandoned their children." He can still say black fathers aren't THAT absent. 2. Another look at the stats - 100 black kids, 100 white…

Wish you could set up a meeting with Boehner's new puppet and Flynn. I don't understand why anyone from Quincy can vote for LaHood and this should just prove it.

If your share and my share are the same of the debt in IL, (think 111 billion just for pension), then I move. Do you think your share went up a little? What if I move my business because I can? Think your share went up a little more? I think IL is losing population faster than most states, except illegals. They will certainly take up the slack of baby boomers and millionaires moving out. Only ones…

Quinn Campaign Wonders: Black Republicans Like Jewish Nazis?

Covers Twitter tracks after backing controversial piece

From Adam Kredo, The Washington Free Beacon:

Illinois Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn is in some hot water with the Jewish community after his campaign tweeted—and then quietly deleted—several messages urging backers to read an article comparing black Republican voters to Jews who collaborated with the Nazis.

Chicago Sun Times readers were stunned last week to find that writer Neil Steinberg has penned a column comparing black supporters of Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner to Jews who collaborated with the Nazis against their brethren.

“As a general rule, individuals will sell out the interests of their groups in return for personal benefit,” Steinberg wrote in his column, which claimed that Rauner is buying off the black community and its leaders. “It isn’t just a black thing. Jews collaborated with the Nazis during World War II, helping them to round up their own people in the hopes they’d be the last to go.”

Quinn’s camp praised the piece and tweeted it out to supporters several times. The tweets were deleted after local Jewish community officials quietly communicated their outrage to the governor.

“If Rauner is willing to throw his own money away like this, what’s he going to do when he gets his hands on ours?” read one now-deleted tweet from Quinn’s campaign account.

The campaign also retweeted—and then deleted—a missive from Steinberg promoting his piece.

Both tweets were captured by the website Politwoops, which archives political tweets for posterity.

Some in the Chicago Jewish community say that they were outraged by Quinn’s support of the Nazi rhetoric, which was disseminated over Passover, the holiday marking the ancient Jewish people’s release from slavery.

“Coming during Passover just a few days after the [anti-Semitic] shootings in Kansas, this kind of rhetoric was beyond outrageous,” said one local Jewish community insider. “Community leaders immediately contacted the governor’s office and urged retraction.”

Sources say that the heads of several major Jewish organizations personally registered their outrage with Quinn.
