Romneycare, expanding welfare programs and Hezbollah as a template: that’s what you can look forward to in a Mitt Romney Administration. I’m not so sure that even his most ardent of supporters could defend this.
Republican presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney cited the social welfare network of the Lebanese Hezbollah terror group as a role model the U.S. should copy to help promote “goodness” and “freedom” around the world.
Sections of Hezbollah’s social welfare network, including schools and camps, are routinely used by the terror group to indoctrinate students in anti-Israel propaganda, instruct in military tactics and promote Shiite Islamic beliefs, including the waging of a final, apocalyptic world battle against “evil.”
And according to Mittens, this is a good thing? Unbelievable. Isn’t there a sanity test for becoming President? How about for a voting bloc that would like to usher in a man who would look to a terrorist group for solutions? Perhaps Mitt should leave the GOP and found the Hezbollah Party here in America. Maybe he and Osama could fight it out for the nomination.
And if you like tax and spend, Romney said he would gladly renew a $50 million AIDS project, throwing good money after bad, and then
proceeded to explain the U.S. should aspire to implement the kind of social action network carried out in recent years by Hezbollah.
We often are critical of Democrats who give aid and comfort to the enemy in a time of war. But right here in front of us is a GOP candidate who praises Hezbollah, a murderous terrorist group. And he wants to do as they do here in America. Unbelievable!
Romney goes on to extol the virtues of propaganda efforts used bt the Hezbollfascists, who offer health care and provide “re-education” as bait to lure people in for brainwashing and terrorist indoctrination. And he doesn’t seem to see anything wrong with this. Is Romney a closet Democrat?
And what about these wonderful schools, the role model for American education under American ayatollah Romney?
WND reported Hezbollah’s Youth Scouts, part of the group’s social welfare network cited by Romney, instructs tens of thousands of children and teenagers in military tactics and indoctrinates them with radical Shiite Islam beliefs, according to materials found by Israel during last month’s war in Lebanon.
Splendid, just what we need in America: more terrorist sleeper cells.
It seems that Mitt’s foreign and domestic policy ideas must be investigatedand scrutinized further. I for one do not want to move in the direction of a United States of Hezbollah. And neither do you.
“Hezbollah wants to create a new generation of operatives for its own ranks who will take part in its violent campaign against Israel.”
Hezbollah’s goals are clear. Just what are Mitt’s? It’s bad enough that a candidate wants to frolic with our enemies. Now it appears we have one that wants to emulate them. No thanks. Just say no to Willard “Mittens” Romney.
Hat Tip: B4B reader Harry. Keep those news tips coming!
Update: The National Jewish Democratic Council responds:
“It is the height of irony that, within weeks of saying Democrats are ‘uncomfortable in recognizing evil in the world,’ Governor Romney would make such ill-informed remarks that cite a terrorist organization as a model for U.S. diplomacy.”
Yes it is. Romney has no trouble recognizing evil. Too bad he wants to follow its example.
Update 2: Flipper flops, falls on face.
Mitt Romney’s campaign said Hezbollah was not a proper model for his vision of U.S. diplomacy, addressing a controversy arising from his earlier remarks.
Actually I’m not so sure this is a flip flop. Perhaps Mitt has recognized that America is not ready for his radical ideas, so he needs to backpedal and wait to unveil them only after he gets his hands on Presidential power. Either way, it’s a pretty serious gaffe from the Flipper.
Update 3: Hot Air is referring to this as Mitt Romney’s “Osama Momma” Moment.
Update 4: Is Mitt Romney actually Patty Murray in drag?
Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., told a group of high-school students in her state that the U.S. should adopt Osama bin Laden’s nation-building tactics.
