spiking the football

Democrats will spend the next several months, and the rest of your life, reveling in their moral superiority to their counterparts. And, indeed, if you put a gun to my head, I’d have to concede that liberal Democrats are superior to conservative Republicans. But then I’m not the one with a gun to my head. The millions of undocumented immigrants that Obama has deported had guns to their heads. So do the people living and dying under threat of drone strikes in Pakistan. And so you wonder if liberal Democrats will ever get around to caring as much for the real Muslims and immigrants terrorized by their guy as they do for the hypothetical ones at risk of being terrorized by the other guy. If you mention the 73 to them, they will call you self-righteous and various other names, but they will offer no means through which we might save the next 73. They know there’s no end to the horror. They’re just too busy spiking the football to care.

New Secretive Group Admits It Is Going To ‘Swiftboat’ President Obama On National Security.

“[A] new sinister group of right-wing vulgarians called Veterans For A Strong America (apparently Chicken-sh*t Hawks for a Bloated Defense budget was already taken) was created with the nefarious aim of distorting (or ‘Swiftboating’) the president’s monumental achievement of killing Bin Laden. And in keeping with all of today’s right-wing noisemakers, they’re pretty gangsta about it.

According to the group’s leader and evidently only employee,  Joel Arends, ’Yes, it’s the swift boating of the president.’

Here’s what you need to know about Vets for a Strong America, from Think Progress:

1. In four days, the first ad by Veterans For A Strong America garnered almost 1 million views on Youtube. It has also been played frequently on TV news shows. [YouTube, 5/1/12]

2. Veterans For A Strong America is seeking to recruit Navy SEALS to attack Obama.’ In the wake of a warm conservative reception for a web video trashing the president for ‘spiking the football’ on the anniversary of Osama Bin Laden’s death, the conservative group Veterans for a Strong America plans to gather Navy SEALs and Special Forces operators to criticize the White House during the 2012 campaign.’ [BuzzFeed, 5/3/12]

3. Arends also tried to Swift Boat Obama in 2008. Arends, under the auspices of a similar group called 'Vets for Freedom,’ ran an ad accusing Obama of refusing to meet with wounded soldiers from Illinois. [NPR, 7/5/08]

4. Arends worked as a consultant for the Koch Brothers’ Americans for Prosperity. 'Though he doesn’t list it on his public resume, around 2006 Arends went to work for Craig Dewey, the state director of Americans for Prosperity, an advocacy outfit that’s Astroturfed everything from the tea party and the Wisconsin union fight to public-school segregation.’ The Koch Brothers and their allies have pledged to spend $100 million to defeat Obama. [Mother Jones, 5/4/12; HuffingtonPost, 2/3/12]

5. In 2008, Arends — posing as a 'journalist’ — organized and participated in a taxpayer-subsidized propaganda trip to Iraq. 'American taxpayers are paying for politically slanted, pro-McCain, anti-Obama ‘reporters’ embedded with U.S. troops in Iraq. Vets for Freedom – a pro-war organization that buys attack ads against Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama – assembled a team of eight military veterans with dubious journalistic credentials to report ‘objectively’ on what is occurring in Iraq…Joel Arends, another 'reporter,’ is VFF’s executive director and was on McCain’s campaign payroll between March 2007 and February 2008.’ [Charleston Gazette, 8/28/08]

6. Arends is coordinating with key Islamophobic figures on the far right. He regularly appears at events with anti-Islam conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney, who has been condemned by mainstream conservatives for his intolerant views. He is also alligned with William 'Jerry’ Boykin, who was found to have violated Pentagon rules by expressing his anti-Muslim views in an official capacity. [ThinkProgress, 2/12/12; For The Common Defense; New York Times, ¾/05]

7. Arends helped promote a documentary advocating war with Iran. Arends appeared on a panel in March 2011 in South Dakota promoting the documentary Iranium, which strongly suggests beginning a war with Iran. [Flier; ThinkProgress, 11/3/11]

8. Veterans for A Strong America is fully endorsed by Karl Rove. The man known as 'Bush’s Brain’ tweeted his support of their first web ad. [Twitter, 5/3/12]
