A SCARIER AMERICA BEGINS AT A KERRY-EDWARDS RALLY: 3 YR OLD SOPHIA PARLOCK ATTACKED BY HEARTLESS DEMOCRATS
Instead of directing their hate towards Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, Kerry-Edwards supporters decided to attack the 3 year old daughter of a Republican voter
We've heard the trash. We've been subjected to the hate. We've been spit on, ridiculed, yelled at. All of that because we support President George W. Bush. Our president has done everything he can to protect us after 3,000 of our fellow citizens were slaughtered on 9/11. Instead of waiting for more 9/11's to occur, President Bush decided to take decisive action by chasing, hunting and eliminating terrorists in all corners of the world.
But, there are some people who are not appreciative of what President Bush has done. In fact, they couldn't care less about foreign policy, what is going on in the rest of the world, and whether or not millions of people are able to enjoy the same freedoms that is our God given right. Instead, they want to pursue a domestic, social agenda to change America in a way that they see fit.
So, THESE THUGS DON'T HATE Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. These FELLOW AMERICANS HATE OUR PRESIDENT. That is why you hear things like, "Bush lied, people died." "I hate Bush." "George Bush is evil." "Bush is dumb." "Bush is an evil genius." "George Bush is a coward."
YOU NEVER HEAR ANGRLY LIBERALS say "Osama lied, our people died." "I hate bin Laden." "Saddam is evil." "Saddam is dumb." "Saddam is an evil genius." "Osama bin Laden is a coward."
To those sad and timid souls I say to you: The Parlock family didn't do anything to you. The next time you applaud John Kerry for talking about "disenfranchised" voters think about the time you ripped a campaign sign from a little girl's fingers. The next time you demand free speech in order to wage violent protests that injure hard working police officers think about how you shouted at one man and his daughter at a campaign rally. The next time you say you hate an American president think about all the times you stayed quiet when Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and other evil thugs were murdering innocent people on a daily basis.
It has come to this. The hateful garbage spewed by Al Gore, Terry McAuliffe, Howard Dean, Wesley Clark, Dick Gephardt, MoveOn.org, Paul Krugman, Al Franken, Kitty Kelley, John Edwards, John Kerry and others too slimy to name has led to HURRICANE SLIME.
It's not the Democratic Party anymore. The Storm of Hate has been upgraded to Hurricane Slime. Just ask little Sophia Parlock and her father.

Update: Union's Apology
Statement from the General President Regarding the Events in Huntington, WV
The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades believes in the fundamental right for civil discourse, freedom of speech and activism to support our candidates and issues.
What happened in Huntington, West Virginia yesterday is an affront to everything we, as a union, pride ourselves to represent. We extend our apologies to the Parlock family, especially Sophia, for the distress one of our overzealous members caused them.
I have personally taken steps to address this issue internally, and will take immediate disciplinary action to the fullest extent allowed under U.S. Department of Labor regulations and the constitution of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades.
It is my hope that this incident reminds all of our members that every last citizen in this country has the right to express his or herself freely. Not one single one of us has the right to tell them otherwise.
