Shocker: Hillary Uses 9/11 In Campaign Ad

Mrs. Bill Clinton’s latest advertisement via her YouTube campaign site:

But it seems like only yesterday we had stories like this from the BBC NEWS:

Relatives condemn Bush 9/11 ads

Friday, 5 March, 2004

Relatives of victims killed in the 11 September 2001 attacks have criticised George W Bush for using images from the tragedy in his campaign advertisements.

Some of the families have complained that the images exploit those killed in the attacks and are in poor taste.

“It’s totally disgusting,” said Dawn Peterson, whose brother died in the attack on the World Trade Center…

BBC Washington correspondent Rob Watson says President Bush is campaigning on the basic pitch that you don’t change leaders during a time of war.

But this controversy shows it is a pitch that will have to be handled with sensitivity if it is not to backfire, our correspondent says.

The four television advertisements, which began showing on Thursday across the US, marked the beginning of the Bush administration’s campaign for the 2004 presidential elections.

Among the images shown in two of the advertisements are images of firefighters carrying a body, draped in a US flag, from the rubble at Ground Zero, where the World Trade Center once stood.

The International Association of Fire Fighters condemned the decision to use their images and said the US president was being hypocritical.

“We’re not going to stand for him to put his arm around one of our members on top of a pile of rubble at Ground Zero during a tragedy and then stand by and watch him cut money for first responders [emergency services],” he said.

Other relatives said they felt their loved ones were being used to score political points.

“Families are enraged,” victims’ advocate Bill Doyle, who lost his 25-year-old son in the attacks, told Reuters news agency.

“What I think is distasteful is that the president is trying to use 9/11 as a springboard for his re-election.”

“It’s entirely wrong. He’s had 3,500 deaths on his watch, including Iraq”…

Indeed, the inclusion of a few microseconds of images from 9/11 in a campaign ad caused such a furor that 1,920,000 articles about this outrage can still be found on Google.

By the way, the “families” usually cited in these article are almost always those handpicked by Fenton Communications for the George Soros and Heinz/Tides front, Peaceful Tomorrows.

Here is one of their diatribes against Bush’s crime against humanity. I have checked Peaceful Tomorrows website for similar complaints about Mrs. Bill Clinton’s ad, but so far there is nothing posted.

Meanwhile, the moral paragons at the Soros/Clinton front MoveOn.org were so incensed they ran their own advertisement decrying Bush’s ad:

But that was then and this is now. 

Or is it?

For only a couple of weeks ago the execrable Keith Olbermann and a MoveOn.org paid stooge were attacking Bush administration officials for even daring to mention 9/11:


Countdown: Rachel Maddow on Exploiting 9/11

It’s clear. They simply want to control the language.

The great anti-Communist George Orwell predicted it all.
