During World War II, we had Tokyo Rose sending demoralizing
messages to our troops. During Vietnam, we had Hanoi Jane Fonda
sending her treasonous messages to our boys in Southeast Asia,
while aiming the Communists' cannons at them.
And in this War Against Terrorism, we have Congresswoman
Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga., – Jihad Cindy – to demoralize us
and give aid and comfort to the enemy.
McKinney has a strong record of hating America. During the
recent U.N. World Conference Against Racism, she attacked the
U.S. with the rest of the Arab world (now our
"moderate" partners in the "Coalition Against
Terrorism") and Third World republics in her push for
slavery reparations, saying the White House is "just full
of latent racists."
But her latest set of actions are the most outrageous.
Take McKinney's pandering letter to Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin
Talal, in which she apologized for the valorous actions of New
York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Talal, nephew of Saudi King Fahd,
recently visited New York to see the World Trade Center remains
and gave Giuliani a $10 million check for relief efforts. Then,
the prince released a statement full of moral equivocations,
rationalizing the murder of 6,000 innocent Americans and blaming
U.S. foreign policy, "suggesting" it be changed.
It's hard to ignore a $10 million dollar suggestion, no
matter how ridiculous and immoral.
But not for the valiant Giuliani. In the highest act of moral
and civic courage, he promptly returned the check with a
statement: "There is no moral equivalent for this attack.
The people who did it lost any right to ask for justification
when they slaughtered 5,000, 6,000 innocent people ... Not only
are those statements wrong, they're part of the problem."
Giuliani is an American hero.
Back to the American villainess. Last Friday, McKinney, in a
ludicrous letter, apologized to the prince for Giuliani's
actions, accusing Giuliani of denying the prince's "right
to speak and make observations about a part of the world you
know so well."
Nobody denied the prince's speech rights – which nobody in
his country, Saudi Arabia, has, by the way. He made his
statement without being tortured to death, a la Middle-Eastern
But McKinney is right about one thing: The prince and his
family know that part of the world well – which is why,
according to New York Times and Wall Street Journal reports,
there is significant evidence that the Saudi government had
their hands in the attacks and that they tacitly continue to
support Osama bin Laden through his family, which lives
comfortably in Saudi Arabia and hasn't cut their brother off.
McKinney's letter was so disgusting, even her Georgia
Democratic colleague, Senator Zell Miller called it
"disgraceful" and denounces her on his website. Not
only did McKinney agree with the prince's "remarks,"
but in her own shameful moral equivocation, she attacked America
because, "Your Royal Highness, the state of Black America
is not good." McKinney wrote, "There are many people
in America who desperately need your generosity," making
the false assertion that a black baby born in Harlem has a worse
life expectancy than one born in Bangladesh.
No, Cindy, America does not need Saudi
"generosity." The Saudis need ours – like the
generosity we gave in the Gulf War, saving the prince's shaky
monarchy from being exiled to a Swiss chalet, while his country
became a province of Iraq. And look what we've gotten in return
– a royal slap in the face, aided by Jihad Cindy. I guess
McKinney forgot the life expectancy of blacks in the Muslim Arab
world, including Saudi-aided Sudan, where two million black
Christians were savagely murdered and where millions more are
enslaved, tortured, maimed and raped.
McKinney's new buddy, Prince Alwaleed, is the sixth richest
man in the world, according to Forbes. Giuliani showed him that
even the wealthiest of scoundrels cannot buy respectability with
their blood money. Unless they're buying Congresswoman McKinney.
And her price is very cheap, apparently. She was the
headliner at the Oct. 7 fundraising dinner for the Council
on American Islamic Relations, a Muslim terrorist front
group that has been hanging out with President Bush a lot
In exchange for her revered status with this and other
radical Islamic pro-terrorist groups, McKinney has attempted to
stop congressional investigations into them and the WTC attacks.
At an Oct. 3 House Committee on International Relations
Hearing on al-Qaida and the Global Reach of Terrorism, McKinney
had a temper tantrum when Oliver "Buck" Revell
testified. Revell, associate director of the FBI in charge of
Investigative and Counter-Intelligence Operations from
1985-1991, attempted to show segments of the 1995 documentary,
"Jihad in America."
McKinney wanted to censor it, so that Americans watching on
C-SPAN would not see evidence of the extensive Muslim terrorist
network in America documented in the film, including that of Islamic
Jihad front-man and University of South Florida Professor, Dr.
Sami Al-Arian. No complaints from her about denying Revell's
right to speak.
We're in the middle of war. But atop her tax-funded website,
alongside a photo of her in leopard-print accents, are
"news briefs," including "COINTELPRO: The Untold
American Story," an attack on the U.S., which she and the
Black Caucus presented to the U.N. World Conference Against
Racism. Hello! – COINTELPRO took place under Nixon, three
decades ago. And the victims cited in this 78-page diatribe by
America-hating leftists Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn are guys
like Dhoruba Bin Wahad aka Richard Moore, a Black Panther who
machine-gunned police officers, and convicted cop-killer Mumia
Echoing her friend, Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan,
whom she's refused to denounce, McKinney's website demands
evidence against Osama bin Laden and the Taliban.
During wars in lands far away, Tokyo Rose and Hanoi Jane were
bad enough. But now the war is on our homefront. And so is Jihad
