Coakley Hits New Low

In freedom, living free, Scott Brown on January 18, 2010 at 4:39 pm

Pictured above is an ad sent out two days ago to Massachusetts (or if you prefer, “MassachusettEs”) residents by the Coakley campaign. The pamphlet shows the faces of supposed rape victims in the Commonwealth. Along with the mailer, Coakley spent a whopping $2M on negative advertising in the past four days alone. Can it be that Martha Coakley and the Democratic leadership is so bewildered by Brown’s recent success, they are willing to sacrifice what little character they have to steal the election?  Shame on you all.

Several days ago Scott explained a conversation he had with his wife at the start of his run for the US Senate: “Win or lose, when this is all over I want to be able to hold my head high.” As crazy an idea as it might be; Scott actually means what he says. In his refrain from running a negative campaign, the people of Massachusetts have been witness to Scott not just as a politician, but a person. Sadly for the Coakley campaign the success of Scott Brown’s campaign could be easily explained by a six-year-old: He listens to the people and tells the truth. Imagine that.

With a ground-breaking election happening two days from now, I want to correct some of Ms. Coakley’s backbiting, and set the record straight:

Lie number one: Scott Brown wants rape victims turned away from hospitals. Really Martha? That’s really how you decide to spin this? Truth: Scott voted for a bipartisan amendment that allows religious hospitals to refer a patient seeking an abortion to an affiliate. The amendment simply protects the religious beliefs of doctors and hospitals opposed to killing unborn babies. Did I mention Scott was raised by a single mother and now lives with his wife and two daughters? It certainly is believable that Scott Brown opposes medical care for rape victims.

Lie number two: Just like Bush and Cheney, Scott only wants to give the wealthiest two percent a tax break. Again, really? Truth: Scott not only wants to give “across the board” tax cuts to all Americans, he has said it repeatedly in television ads. As a young child, Scott understood firsthand the financial struggles of a child raised on welfare. It certainly does make sense that State Senator Brown opposes stimulating the economy by making “across the board” tax cuts. Hang on, there’s more…

Lie number three: Scott Brown if elected, will be forced to further the agendas of various special interest groups as repayment for getting him elected. Yes, it’s true. With Scott’s average donation being about ten bucks, he will be forced to fight for each “special interest” group (i.e. American citizen) who so generously donated to his campaign. Further, individual donations to Brown’s campaign may not exceed $2,400. Truth: the single largest special interest group in the Country, SEIU, backs Martha Coakley. Coakley receives donations from SEIU in the tens of thousands. Also, many sizable law firms (or cronies) are contributing to Martha’s campaign with sums north of $25,000.

The people of the Commonwealth along with the Nation are angry. Tuesday January 19th marks the first opportunity for America’s voice to be heard. Tuesday’s election will most likely serve as an indicator for the upcoming elections. Get out there, make your voice heard, and help send Congress a message. I leave you with the words of Daniel Webster: “The contest for ages has been to rescue liberty from the grasp of executive power.”

  1. Nathan, in the short video selection from Mr. Olberman showing now at Gateway Pundit (which you’ve commented on), Olberman makes several charges about things said or supported by Scott Brown.

    If these charges are true, they are terrible. I don’t for one minute trust Olberman or believe his charges, but I would like to hear from someone who might have been close to the scene to verify or refute the occasions that Olberman relates.

    Here is the video (it is inflammatory and borderline obscene):

    Could you address Olberman’s accusations? Is Olberman making false charges?

    Best regards, Peter Warner.

    • Peter,
      I understand your concern. I also respect your wisdom in never trusting a word from the mouth of a man like Olberman without fact checking it yourself.

      There have been MANY things shouted by people along the campaign trail. I believe Scott was more caught off guard than anything by the silly comment. In no way did he say he wished that upon Martha. He did his best to stay on the issue without breaking stride. He was merely continuing with his point in saying, “we can do this” (i.e. win this election). He chuckled from the absurdity of the comment. Here is the video:

      Scott is as real and genuine a person as you could hope to find. He cares greatly for women (as he has raised two of them quite well). The fact of the matter is that Scott has said at EVERY public rally (big and small) that “Martha is a nice woman, she is just wrong on the issues”. That is as negative as I have EVER heard him.

  2. There is an easy index for the level of desperation felt by the Left: the degree of mendacity, deception, and corruption which they feel entitled to employ. In a world without moral absolutes, a secularist progressive can feel morally justified – even downright noble – in gaming the system (I know that’s inherently contradictory, but so is the secularist worldview). To the Left what counts is not behavior, but intention. Under the cloak of fine intentions, other moral considerations dissolve, and the end eclipses the means. This is life without a moral compass. Never be surprised then by the atavism of a desperate progressive – he or she is a cornered animal.
