U.S. Senator Elizabeth Dole has joined Robin Hayes and Virigina Fox in running a divisive campaign intended to pit neighbor against neighbor here in North Carolina. According to Dole it isn't just her seat in the Senate that is at stake. She told supporters in Nash County on Sunday that,
It’s not just to save this seat; we are trying to save the values that we care about in America. We’re trying to save honesty and integrity and hard work and personal responsibility and love of family and love of God. That’s what this is all about, and it’s a serious time.
That's right. According to Elizabeth Dole if Democrats win there will be no more honesty or integrity in this country. Nobody will work hard ever again and we won't take responsibility for our actions. Finally, if Democrats win there will be no more loving our families and loving God is most certainly out of the question.
Elizabeth Dole, that genteel southern belle, is spreading a message of hate and fear. Like Robin Hayes and Virginia Fox, Dole too will fail. Days after Hayes was caught lying about his statement about liberals hating real Americans which was made in front of a crowd of thousands, he gave Elizabeth Dole a check for $1,300. He might have done her a bigger favor if he had tipped her off to the fact that making comments intended to feed on fear and hate aren't working as well as they used to. Hayes might have given Dole $1,300 but his hateful comments put over $80,000 in Larry Kissell's campaign coffers.
Folks here in North Carolina are getting tired of the hate. I don't know anyone who actually believes that those who now love God and love their families will suddenly decide to stop. Oh, I know. That whole love of God statement was code intended to feed on this "Obama is a Muslem" meme running rampant through Republican ranks. The "love of family" part was code intended to feed on anti-gay marriage sentiment found on all sides of the political spectrum here in North Carolina.
The words are all code intended to excite the basest fears of the Republican base in this state. They are words intended to feed on fear, anger and hate. Dole is banking on the fact that these emotions, if stoked properly, will turn out voters.
Kay Hagan is an Elder in her church. She teaches Sunday School. The Hagan family lives in North Carolina and the Hagan kids were raised here. Kay and her husband Chip have taught their children the value of doing good works in the community. On Christmas mornings, the Hagan family goes to the Bell House, a residential facility for adults with severe disabilities and they cook breakfast for the residents and staff.
If you don't want to take my word for it, take the word of her long-time minister, the Reverend Joe Mullin. Click here to listen.
Does this sound like a woman who doesn't love her family? Does this sound like a woman who will promote hatred and fear? Does this sound like a woman who as Senator would encourage people to stop believing in or loving God?
Enough of pitting neighbor against neighbor, Elizabeth Dole!
Enough of the phony fear, Elizabeth Dole!
Enough of the lies about Kay Hagan, Elizabeth Dole!
