Rep. Robert Wexler Gets A Bitchslapping

Hat tip: Uppity Woman

Congressman Robert Wexler claims to represent the state of Florida, even though he doesn’t live there. And he’s an adamant Obama supporter.

When McCain announced Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, Wexler immediately accused Mrs. Palin of being a Buchanan supporter (which has proven to be false).

Anyway, he’s now being taken to task by Former state representative and Broward county commissioner Ben Graber.

Graber , son of Holocaust survivors, is challenging Wexler in congressional District 19, and is running as an independent candidate.

He took issue with Wexler for dissing Sen. John McCain’s vice presidential pick, Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska. According to Graber: “Wexler immediately condemned her as a supporter of a Nazi sympathizer because she wore a Pat Buchanan button … when he visited her town.”

Graber said Wexler’s “behavior” is “not only embarrassing to the Jews, but also dangerous. It is apparent Wexler’s decision-making process is flawed. His inappropriate political use of Jewish issues could promote anti-Semitic backlashes against American Jews. Wexler falsely claims to speak for the Jewish community and he has a history of using anti-Semitism in elections. It was used successfully when he ran for the Florida Senate against Don Childers. Now he wants to use it to frighten Jews into believing Sarah Palin is a threat.”

What is it with these crazy Obama supporters? Does Wexler really believe Jews should support a man who’s endorsed by Hamas, Iran, and Louis Farrakhan?

Who is it that keeps re-electing this man? From the comments I’ve read on the article, no one seems to like him.

  1. The liberals know that Sarah Palin is a threat to Obama’s chances of winning, so it appears they are doing whatever they can to stop her. They even said that mothers should not be allowed to work outside the home. (This may backfire and cost them the feminist vote.) McCain knew what he was doing.
    Another base the Democrats can lose is the environmentalist vote. Drilling off American shores would be more environmentally friendly than drilling off the shores of other countries, because American technology is more eco-friendly than that of developing nations, such as China and the Philippines (which have more factory pollution) and because terrorists and thieves are less likely to break into pipelines and create unnecessary oil spills.
    Come to think of it, the Democrats could also lose the black vote, which Obama supposedly guarantees. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJC_YLVZMUE

    It’s nearly baffling how misinformed and deluded people are.

    “They even said that mothers should not be allowed to work outside the home. (This may backfire and cost them the feminist vote.) McCain knew what he was doing.”

    Whenever I read a sentence that begins with “They even said,” it’s automatically disqualified on the lack of a credible source (i.e, a credible news publication, a legal documentation, even an article from a Congressional Hearing should suffice.

    “Another base the Democrats can lose is the environmentalist vote. Drilling off American shores would be more environmentally friendly than drilling off the shores of other countries, because American technology is more eco-friendly than that of developing nations, such as China and the Philippines (which have more factory pollution) and because terrorists and thieves are less likely to break into pipelines and create unnecessary oil spills.”

    In this statement, the author speculates that drilling in China and The Phillipines are viable options. It is more likely that the visit that VP Dick Cheney made to Georgia two days ago will determine a new course of action for the War On Oil. CORRECTION: the War On Terror.

    “Come to think of it, the Democrats could also lose the black vote, which Obama supposedly guarantees.”

    Here the author forms a non-linear and inconclusive closing statement that serves to question once again the author’s access to credible information.

  3. Hope this isn’t a duplicate. Looks like my post didn’t show up.

    Have you ever seen the video of Fox confronting Wexler in Maryland about his actual residency? Now that’s entertaiment.

    Vote for change you can trust.

  5. Hi Uppity Woman. Thanks for the link.

    And welcome to Ben Graber for Congress. I don’t live in Florida. Otherwise, I’d vote for Graber.

  6. “It’s nearly baffling how misinformed and deluded people are.”

    Yes, you are the one misinformed.

    “Whenever I read a sentence that begins with “They even said,” it’s automatically disqualified on the lack of a credible source (i.e, a credible news publication, a legal documentation, even an article from a Congressional Hearing should suffice.”

    “It is more likely that the visit that VP Dick Cheney made to Georgia two days ago will determine a new course of action for the War On Oil.”
    If the war is about oil, then why have oil prices gone up instead of down? I mean, if we control the oil supplies now, like this war is supposed to make us do, then shouldn’t they go down? You need to base your beliefs on actual facts and proof instead of leftist propaganda, as you probably are a leftist trying to masquerade as a centrist.
    Now, the Chinese have less eco-friendly technology, so it would be better environmentally for Americans to drill off American shores. Now, I don’t know where you got the idea I thought we could drill off Chinese and Philippine shores, they aren’t colonies of ours. You probably made that up just to avoid debating against the actual claims in my comment.
    “Here the author forms a non-linear and inconclusive closing statement that serves to question once again the author’s access to credible information.”
    It’s a known fact that the Democrats have been able to get a lot of the black vote. “Historically, the party has favored farmers, laborers, labor unions, and religious and ethnic minorities; it has opposed unregulated business and finance, and favored progressive income taxes.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_Party_(US)

  7. Hey guys,
    I just purchased this new book on Obama, its great!
    Check it out, its called “The Accomplishments of Barack Obama”, it has a table of contents and a foreward, and the rest of the book is blank. I baught three of them for my friends in the office. Check out the website, I put the book on my coffee table and had a party this past weekend, everyone thought it was hilarious:

    Obama Research

  8. Guess what Rat Buchanan supporter said about Hillary and Barack.She said “So Sambo beat the bitch.”You do know that her religion believes that G-d will come back when Israel is destroyed.Now do you really want her hands near the red button?

  9. Do Nation of Islam supporters Ed Gillespie and Ken Mehlman still work for McPain campaign ?

    “Whenever I read a sentence that begins with “They even said,” it’s automatically disqualified on the lack of a credible source (i.e, a credible news publication, a legal documentation, even an article from a Congressional Hearing should suffice.”

    By “They” I mean CNN.

    “In this statement, the author speculates that drilling in China and The Phillipines are viable options.”

    No, I am not making that statement. You are just saying that to avoid debating my actual statement, that drilling off American shores with American technology is a better choice than asking Africa and Arabia to increase their drilling, where terrorists and thieves can attack the pipelines anytime.

    “Here the author forms a non-linear and inconclusive closing statement that serves to question once again the author’s access to credible information.”

    It’s a known fact that the Democratic party seems to get more of the minority vote, just look it up on Wikipedia. However, the fact that his supporters bring up his race gives me the impression that folks are voting for him because he’s black. However, Barack supports homosexual “marriage”, and if more blacks catch on homosexuals are insulting their heritage (see the link) they may vote Republican.

    It’s clear that your name could not cover up your leftist views. Why are you supporting Obama?

  11. Another fresh link for you sir.

    http://miamiherald.typepad.com/nakedpolitics/2008/09/1000-jews-for-o.html

    1000 Jews for Obama
    Barack Obama’s campaign says it has enlisted nearly 1,000 Jewish leaders in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Orlando and Sarasota to help rally support for the Democratic ticket. The Jewish outreach program targets 10 swing states across the country, according to the campaign.

    National Jewish leaders, such as Middle East expert Dennis Ross, will be stumping in these states on Obama’s behalf. Today, U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York will address four Jewish audiences in South Florida.

  12. Thanks U.W.

    “By “They” I mean CNN.”

    – You site CNN as a credible source of information. CNN and FOX NEWS, two cable news outlets that offer views from both sides of the spectrum dispense information with a critical bias. Any biased information results from financial supporters, lobbyists, and in the case of this momentous election year, the spin doctors.

    “In this statement, the author speculates that drilling in China and The Phillipines are viable options.”

    “No, I am not making that statement. You are just saying that to avoid debating my actual statement, that drilling off American shores with American technology is a better choice than asking Africa and Arabia to increase their drilling, where terrorists and thieves can attack the pipelines anytime.”

    -I didn’t intend to avoid your statement. I misread it. You are saying that US offshore drilling is a viable option because American technology is more eco-friendly and that nations in the Far East aren’t. The problem with offshore drilling as an alternative to foreign suppliers is that the US hasn’t yet begun offshore drilling. The time it’ll take for the refineries to manufacture a worthy surplus, we will have consumed a sizable amount of oil in the Middle East and South America. What this means to the American people is that by the time we have a booming domestic oil industry, we will have spent $300B for foreign product. Google the 2007 ExxonMobil Annual Revenue Report. In the first half of this year they have netted close to $25B. Also Google some of the Saudi Arabian oil embargoes. To be fair, oil is the least of our economic woes. It’s an easy topic for politicians to make hot topic because it’s the most obvious ailing economic condition. It is only a glaring symptom of a much bigger problem. Do you know the percentage our country retains of our very own federal reserve?

    -First and foremost, Wikipedia is not by any means a source for credible information. You know as much as I do that I can look up the topic you are referencing and can edit it to say that the Democratic Party is responsible for September 11th. However, what you state holds water here, the Democratic Party’s base is comprised of minorities.
    Now the big headscratcher in your final analysis, and I’m putting that lightly is that you attempt to connect dots that aren’t there. What do a politician’s tolerance to one minority have to do with another? The only conclusion I can draw is that you are suggesting Black folks are homophobic and will defect from their base candidate because he is rallying all the voters out there. I can only presume you have been living in a pretty bubble for most of your adult life.

    “It’s clear that your name could not cover up your leftist views. Why are you supporting Obama?”
    -Define leftist views. I don’t see the connection. I never said I was supporting Senator Obama.

  14. “CNN and FOX NEWS, two cable news outlets that offer views from both sides of the spectrum dispense information with a critical bias.”

    Yes, you’re kind of getting to the point I was trying to make. CNN is on the left side of the spectrum, and apparently they are even willing to say sexist things against Sarah Palin, forcing the right to defend working mothers and perhaps suggesting the left isn’t as feminist as once thought.

    “The time it’ll take for the refineries to manufacture a worthy surplus, we will have consumed a sizable amount of oil in the Middle East and South America. What this means to the American people is that by the time we have a booming domestic oil industry, we will have spent $300B for foreign product.”

    Yes, there would be short-term effects that are negative, but the long-term effects would be helpful. There is also the possibility of biofuel, but that can result in
    1) The destruction of the forest for farmland
    2) The reduction in food supply
    3) The use of non-food crops for biofuel
    4) More than one of the above

    “The only conclusion I can draw is that you are suggesting Black folks are homophobic and will defect from their base candidate because he is rallying all the voters out there.”
    Perhaps you didn’t look at the video. In it, the speaker talks about how homosexuals comparing their struggle to African-Americans is an insult to African-American heritage. As a half-Asian American, I view it as an insult to my heritage too, because homosexuals like to claim America is oppressing them when in reality what they’ve gone through is practically nothing. While it’s true they can’t get married in the entire nation, they can get married in California and Massachusetts, a marriage they have overseas is recognized in Hawaii, and they can have civil unions. (Isn’t that enough?) Also, they have never had to deal with slavery like African-Americans have, never had to deal with a Homosexual Exclusion Act (and yet we had to deal with a Chinese Exclusion Act), never had to deal with segregation, and are treated a h*ll of a lot better here than in say, Iran, where they can get stoned for being homosexual. Furthermore, the average annual income for homosexuals was over $55,430 compared to the national average of $32,144. source: http://www.lc.org/radiotv/nlj/nlj1002.htm

    “Define leftist views.”
    Well for one thing, you believe the war is over oil and that our nation is behind 9/11. I’ve come across people who believe that but had no facts to back it up. Another is you used the term “homophobic.” Homophobia implies fear or hatred. But I don’t hate or fear homosexuals, I’m just not thrilled with them having sex. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s98Dac317Dw It’s just a term used to attack anyone who doesn’t agree with the gay agenda.
    Also, legalizing same-sex marriage can have negative social costs. http://www.heritage.org/Research/Family/netherlandsstatement.cfm

  15. Not left, not right - centered

    JKnight98,
    Your views and comprehension skills appear quite flawed, judging from the volley we’ve been having.
    It seems you cling to assumptions and base many of your opinions upon generalizations. I will take the time to address your latest post.

    If you suggest that an entire cross-section can be summed up by being feminist or not, then you are applying stereotypes. Stereotypes are the valve between open-mindedness and closed-mindedness. Feminism needn’t be based on a macro-social level but by a micro-social basis.

    In my studies of sociology it is more than evident that a person or a group of persons undergo their own distinctive social struggles. To compare and contrast struggles becomes a personal ideological concern. Black folks and gay people alike have current struggles with overcoming discrimination and prejudice. One member of the Black community cannot be burdened with the personal responsibility of speaking for an entire community. A person would be ignorant and callous to accept one person’s statement and actions based on a collective opinion.
    As far as gay people don’t have it bad, you need to do more research on that issue. Look up Matthew Shepard 1998 and see “Philadelphia” and “A Few Good Men” if you haven’t already. I have a 16-year old brother-in-law who recently came out of the closet to a staunch right-wing military mother who has a vehement opinion on civil union marriages.

    “Define leftist views.”
    “Well for one thing, you believe the war is over oil and that our nation is behind 9/11. I’ve come across people who believe that but had no facts to back it up. Another is you used the term “homophobic.” Homophobia implies fear or hatred.

    Also, legalizing same-sex marriage can have negative social costs.”

    I don’t believe the war is over oil and that our nation is behind 9/11. Once again, your reading comprehension falls short.

    This is the statement I believe you are referencing:

    “-First and foremost, Wikipedia is not by any means a source for credible information. You know as much as I do that I can look up the topic you are referencing and can edit it to say that the Democratic Party is responsible for September 11th.”

    My point was that Wikipedia is an unreliable source of information considering anyone from anywhere can edit the information contained therein.

    One can say the war is for oil, but there are more ghastly molecules in place that are a part of it. But don’t feel alone or confused, you are a part of a big majority who doesn’t know or care to know why the US waged war on Iraq on six different fronts. I suggest you learn about war profiteering and war corporatism and shatter that illusion you are holding on to.
    I hope that you can free your mind and learn the reality of what’s been going on. You can pigeonhole that as being leftist or whathaveyou, that’s just what the fat cats want from people like us – to remain polarized and set to our own separate ideologies and belief systems. The fact is that I am not left, not right. I choose to be centered. I choose to step away from the binary templates people ascribe to. In the dilemma that is the two-party system I tend to vote for the candidate that has less of a tendency to be incompetent. I don’t learn about these candidates from cable news and newspapers, since they are primarily controlled by special interest groups and conglomerate media outlets. I aggregate enough information from the internet and external news outlets.
    I’m grateful that we’ve been having this discussion considering most people refrain from talking about political issues at the watercooler.

  16. “If you suggest that an entire cross-section can be summed up by being feminist or not, then you are applying stereotypes. Stereotypes are the valve between open-mindedness and closed-mindedness. Feminism needn’t be based on a macro-social level but by a micro-social basis.”

    The point I was trying to make is that members of the left are willing to say sexist things to attack Sarah Palin.

    “In my studies of sociology it is more than evident that a person or a group of persons undergo their own distinctive social struggles.”
    Yes, every group has had its own struggles. But, compared to other groups, I would say that homosexuals are fairly well off. I mean, what have they gone through compared to blacks, Asians, and immigrants, for example? While the story about your brother-in-law is tragic, we do have to keep in mind that some mothers would be unhappy if they found out their son picked a girlfriend from another race.

    “One member of the Black community cannot be burdened with the personal responsibility of speaking for an entire community. A person would be ignorant and callous to accept one person’s statement and actions based on a collective opinion.”

    Perhaps. But I would have a difficult time believing that they would like to have their heritage insulted. While it’s true that some others may not view the comparison as an insult to their heritage, I’m sure they would all agree homosexuals haven’t had to deal with slavery.

    “I don’t believe the war is over oil and that our nation is behind 9/11.”

    I was also referring to this statement: “It is more likely that the visit that VP Dick Cheney made to Georgia two days ago will determine a new course of action for the War On Oil. CORRECTION: the War On Terror.”

    “But don’t feel alone or confused, you are a part of a big majority who doesn’t know or care to know why the US waged war on Iraq on six different fronts.”
    If you know why the US waged war in Iraq on six different fronts, then perhaps you should explain it in a nutshell. The left calls it a scam for oil, the right says it’s about terrorism and the like.
    “I suggest you learn about war profiteering and war corporatism and shatter that illusion you are holding on to”
    If you are referring to how corporations benefit from war, I highly doubt that’s the real reason behind Iraq.
    “In the dilemma that is the two-party system I tend to vote for the candidate that has less of a tendency to be incompetent.”
    In that case, you probably are centered. The problem is that the two-party system limits voters to 2 choices and unfortunately for us, there is corruption in both parties.
    “You can pigeonhole that as being leftist or whathaveyou, that’s just what the fat cats want from people like us – to remain polarized and set to our own separate ideologies and belief systems.”
    So, there is a conspiracy by the fat cats to polarize people to the left or the right. Why would they want that?
    “I don’t learn about these candidates from cable news and newspapers, since they are primarily controlled by special interest groups and conglomerate media outlets.”
    It’s good that you are aware of that. The left controls a lot of the television and newspapers.
    “I hope that you can free your mind and learn the reality of what’s been going on.”
    I don’t know the specific details, but I know for sure that those with money can have lots of power without attaining political office, both parties are plagued by corruption, and we have a host of other national problems.

  17. Not left, not right - centered

    “If you know why the US waged war in Iraq on six different fronts, then perhaps you should explain it in a nutshell. The left calls it a scam for oil, the right says it’s about terrorism and the like.”
    -JKnight, if you want a good understanding of the war in a nutshell, check out this video. It clearly provides a decent summary for the question you asked:

    “In the dilemma that is the two-party system I tend to vote for the candidate that has less of a tendency to be incompetent.”
    “In that case, you probably are centered. The problem is that the two-party system limits voters to 2 choices and unfortunately for us, there is corruption in both parties.”
    -Yes. That is the crux of it. When other standing political parties find candidates for their respective parties (Libertarian, Progressive, Green) only a fraction of the country has access to their viewpoints and policies and voting records. This is entirely due to the funding that goes into the bipartisan system. I personally believe one of the two (or both) will not exist when my children have children. Simply because the new century will bring new societal problems and issues. History has proven this with the fall of the Whig party, the Federalist party, etc.

    “So, there is a conspiracy by the fat cats to polarize people to the left or the right. Why would they want that?”
    -It’s not so much of a conspiracy. It’s simple really when you look at that there are only two choices on the ballot. A good example is how Hillary Clinton bypassed this during the Clinton Administration. Mrs. Clinton set out to take on the U.S. Healthcare system. She wanted to create legislature and policy to reform healthcare. The problem she encountered was that the big business of the health industry liked the way their business was being run and they forced her hand to withdraw her from her hopes of reforming. How did they do that? They wrote her a very large check.

    “I don’t know the specific details, but I know for sure that those with money can have lots of power without attaining political office, both parties are plagued by corruption, and we have a host of other national problems.”
    -Yes. I don’t know all the details myself. Well said.

  18. The “information” on this blog is full of lies and distortions. I’m a Jew and an Obama supporter. I encourage you to think about what McCain’s choice of Palin means as a symbol to the religious right. And on Israel, I suggest you read these two articles:

    http://jeffreygoldberg.theatlantic.com/archives/2008/05/obama_on_zionism_and_hamas.php

    http://www.tnr.com/politics/story.html?id=7abbeec1-c614-44d7-aabb-92c0329a85da

    It’s sad for Jews to be part of such disgusting smears about a good man. My only hope is that nobody actually reads your garbage.

  19. Hate to break it to you NER, but I get a nice amount of traffic on this blog. And new people are signing up on the JTF forum every day.

  20. Are you guys really OK with anti-semitic Pentecostals like Palin’s long-time membership, involvement & support of the Wasilla Pentecostal church including their “featuring” of David Brickman & the whole Jews for Jesus & 3rd Wave movement thing that purports only “bellieving” Christians w/be anointed, receive supernatural powers, take over “the” church and “the” world & Alaska will be one of the very “few” refuges in America following the “End of Days”? PLEASE tell me that’s not true or educate me as to your support.

  21. P Jones, read through the posts, and watch Chaim’s videos. That will give you your answer.
