A political ally of Congressional candidate Joe Miklosi told a group of liberal supporters last week that it’s easier and more effective to call conservatives racists than actually debate their policies, The Daily Caller reports.
We’re sure Terrance Carroll would agree.
A top official at a liberal super PAC with the goal of eradicating tea partiers from Congress is telling activists that it’s more effective to label Republicans as racists than criticize their policies.
According to an audio recording obtained by The Daily Caller, Matthew “Mudcat” Arnold, the national campaign manager of the liberal CREDO super PAC, told a gathering of supporters in Aurora, Colo., on Sept. 8 that they’ve realized “policy did not move voters.”
…Arnold made the comments while discussing the organization’s campaign against Colorado Republican Rep. Mike Coffman. The event at BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse was billed as a gathering for “CREDO members and local activists to discuss our campaign to defeat Mike Coffman.
We haven’t seen this reported in any Colorado press yet, but it seems too big for them to ignore forever.
Does Miklosi stand by the race-baiting bromides of CREDO PAC?
This isn’t the first time one of Miklosi’s allies have crossed the line to attack Coffman. In July, Politico reported that “Colorado Fair Share” — a left wing group associated with the Occupy movement — had been stalking Congressman Coffman’s home.
At what point will the Denver Post editorial board and other outlets who love to call out the right for their tactics, stand up and denounce this type of politics?
