Soros Funding 24/7 Stalking Of Congress

From the fellow relentless propagandists at Reuters:

Soro-paid “protesters” harass our elected representatives around the clock.

U.S. lawmakers get no respite at home on Iraq debate

By Richard Cowan

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Anti-war groups knew U.S. Rep. Timothy Murphy was going home to Pittsburgh for this month’s congressional recess, so they baked him a cake.

“Rep. Murphy Welcome Home Bring Them Home,” was the Iraq troop withdrawal message written in green icing that greeted the conservative Republican at his district office on August 8.

For the 535 members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, the August break traditionally is a time for family vacations, foreign travel, campaign fund-raising and meeting with voters.

For Democrats and lobbying groups working to end a war now in its fifth year, August has been a chance to challenge supporters of President George W. Bush’s war policy on their home turf and in the run-up to Congress’ war funding debate next month.

Congress is catching up with public sentiment against the war and Democrats have several times won approval of troop withdrawal plans only for them to be vetoed by Bush or tripped up by Republican opposition. Still, there is a bipartisan realization that tens of thousands of U.S. troops are likely to stay in Iraq for many years.

“Iraq is at the top of most voters minds right now,” said Doug Thornell, a spokesman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which wants to expand the party’s hold on the House in the November 2008 elections.

When members return to Washington on September 4, they immediately will jump back into the Iraq debate…

For Tom Matzzie, Washington director of activist group MoveOn.org, it’s a clear choice for Bush’s party.

“The question in September is, will Republicans follow Bush off this cliff?” said Matzzie.

Anti-war groups have used various techniques, from trying to crowd into lawmakers’ offices to flying a 12-foot blimp emblazoned with the words “end the war” over a gathering of Republican presidential candidates in Ames, Iowa, on August 11.

A company manufacturing “Bush Lied They Died” T-shirts that list the names of more than 3,400 U.S. troops killed in Iraq is reporting brisk sales, despite state and federal legislation aimed at banning them.

Moira Mack, a spokeswoman for Americans Against Escalation in Iraq, said her coalition of liberal groups has distributed at least 25,000 “support the troops, end the war” yard signs in states where Republican could face difficult re-election bids.

Sen. Norm Coleman, one Minnesota Republican who could face a tough campaign next year, arrived home in St. Paul to see one of the signs in his neighbor’s front yard, Mack said…

Doesn’t this article make it sound like our elected officials are facing the wrath of the people and that the system is working as it should?

Of course that is a total lie. The groups mentioned are paying people to stalk Congressmen who support the war on terror.

Check out the abominable Americans Against Escalation In Iraq, which is just another MoveOn.org front:

Take A Stand Campaign

The “Take a Stand Campaign” is a nation-wide organizing drive to demand that members of Congress and the Senate take a stand with the vast majority of Americans who want a safe and responsible redeployment of American Forces from Iraq.

Across America, over 100 “Iraq Summer” organizers are working to involve thousands of ordinary Americans in an effort to pressure targeted members of Congress to vote to bring a safe end to the war.  This “Take A Stand Campaign” will culminate with “Take A Stand” town meetings to be held on August 28th, immediately before congress reconvenes.

There are lots of ways to get involved — from attending a Take a Stand town hall in your area to helping organize and spreading the word about the event.

You too can sign up for free housing and a nice salary, if you will devote your time to harassing an elected official 24 hours a day, seven days a week:

Iraq Summer

There will be a major new organizing initiative to end the War in Iraq — Iraq Summer…

Americans Against Escalation in Iraq (AAEI) plans to deploy 110 organizers to the Districts of critical House and Senate Republicans who still support the President’s disastrous policy in Iraq.  There job will be to execute a national program to help fracture critical elements of the Republican base of support for the war by early fall.

Take A Stand

When the President announced his escalation plan in January, many Republicans said that we should give the policy six months to work. By late August the President’s escalation policy will be 7 months old – plenty of time for Republicans to “give the President’s policy a chance to work”.

Just as important, as they approach Labor Day, Republicans will begin to look right into the cross hairs of the political disaster that they face in 2008 if they continue to support this disastrous war.

AAEI plans to demand that by late August every one of these Republicans are forced to “Take a Stand”  — to break their ties with Bush’s war.

The Iraq Summer Project will organize that Take a Stand campaign on the ground.

Recruiting Organizers for Iraq Summer – An Opportunity to be Part of History

AAEI – together with MoveOn.org, USAction and Americans United for Change – are a currently recruiting the organizers to execute this project.

We are looking for the best of the best.

Candidates must be tough, ready to work long hours, go wherever they are needed, devote themselves completely to the task, have use of a car,  and be passionate about ending the war.  They need to report for training June 16th and be available through Labor Day (September 3rd).

Applications

It’s a hackneyed thing to compare our modern day propagandists to the Nazis. But this kind of round the clock personal harassment is exactly what the Brownshirts tried to do to elected representatives of the Weimar Republic. (Except the SA didn’t have to be paid.)

So of course the erstwhile Nazi helper George Soros has put his money behind it.

But none of this is mentioned in this article by our watchdog media. Because they and the new Storm Troopers are on the same side.
