  •  Am persuaded it was a dog whistle (11+ / 0-)

    for repubs, community organizer is code word for black agitators and labor organizers.   I.e., communists.  

    Unfortunately, that's a dog whistle that only white republicans over the age of 50 would respond to.

    For independents and democrats, attacking community organizers seems as ridiculously mean-spirited as attacking girl scouts, nuns, Red Cross workers, or librarians.

    The coordinated Republican attack on community organizers (Rudy was in on it, too) just shows how out of touch the entire party is with the rest of America.  

    •  That was a particularly bizzare attack (9+ / 0-)

      coming from Rudy, considering that significant relief work was done in NYC after the Towers were hit by community organizations from all over the country.  It's a bizzare attack from the GOP, itself, considering its emphasis on Faith Based Initiatives and their community work.

      Thank you, Howard Dean

        I live in CT and know clergy and others who worked for or through community organizations to feed and counsel the volunteers and others working on "the pile."

        How dare he sneeringly disparage all those people who were organized by community groups - people from across the country and all over the world, as a matter of fact - who rolled up their sleeves to help?

        No wonder residents of NYC despise him so much for using 9/11 for his own personal gain.

      •  Not to mention (0+ / 0-)
