So by now we’ve all heard the charges (refuted by the New York Times:) that Obama has connections with former Weather Underground member Bill Ayers, a domestic terrorist. Surprisingly, however, little is being said about the close personal relationship McCain shares with a known domestic terrorist. The fact that the Obama campaign hasn’t been forcing it down our throats the same way McCain has is a testament to his policy of being the “bigger man” and not resorting to negative campaigning. Still, this is a very important issue, and one that seriously shocked me and damaged my opinion of McCain.

McCain is a close friend of the domestic terrorist George Liddy. Liddy, as many of you are aware, is the mastermind behind a series of terrorist plots concocted in the 70’s, which included a plan to firebomb the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., kidnap US citizens during the Republican National Convention in San Diego, and murder newspaper writers. Ultimately he was also responsible for planning and participating in the Watergate burglary, the single most effective attempt to undermine our democratic system and overthrow our government in modern history.

If this weren’t enough, Liddy has admitted that he admired Adolf Hitler, saying

[He] made me feel a strength inside I had never known before. Hitler’s sheer animal confidence and power of will [entranced me]. He sent an electric current through my body.”

Liddy has also advocated murdering federal agents saying of the ATF:

Go for a head shot; they’re going to be wearing bulletproof vests.” … “They’ve got a big target on there, ATF. Don’t shoot at that, because they’ve got a vest on underneath that. Head shots, head shots…. Kill the sons of bitches.

McCain’s connection with Liddy can’t be denied. Over the years Liddy has contributed quite a lot of money to the McCain campaign, including $1,000 this year, and last November McCain met with Liddy saying “I’m proud of you” … “congratulations on your continued success and adherence to the principles and philosophies that keep our nation

Let’s take a look at the principles McCain seems to think keep our nation great:

  1. Admiration of the world’s worst dictator and genocidal maniac.
  2. Planning to abduct US Citizens, and launch attacks on US soil
  3. Planning the murder of US Citizens
  4. Advocating the murder of federal agents
  5. Attempting to undermine the democratic process

Keep in mind that while Obama has denounced Bill Ayers, and denied a close relationship, McCain has congratulated and endorsed Liddy’s methods, and referred to him as a “good friend”. I guess we can see now which one of the two really pal’s around with terrorists. John McCain.
