Democrat Memos Not Being Properly Reported

There's more Democratic memos/fliers that have come out than just the One I reported on in my dorms, as well as the one in Ripley, TN and yet the news agencies refuse to touch it with a 10 foot pole. All except the only non-partisan TV News Agency I can find, Fox News. More memos have been handed out by the Democrats that twist and degrade the Republican party. Here are some examples of the memos.
WASHINGTON — Republican officials are furious about a new flier being distributed in African-American neighborhoods in St. Louis, Mo., that suggests Republicans would try to attack minority voters to prevent them from going to the polls.
The fliers, being distributed by America Coming Together
, a group that has raised at least $86 million to back Democratic candidates, doesn't directly accuse Republicans of violence, but it does show a 1960s photograph of a firefighter hosing a black man.
"This is what they used to do to keep us from voting," the flier reads.
The handout also accuses Republicans of conspiring to suppress the black vote through intimidation and such tactics as putting "phony cops at polling places — but only in African-American neighborhoods."

"They make African-American voters stand in line for hours, then turn them away from the polls," the flier reads. "Now [U.S. Attorney General] John Ashcroft is trying to prevent African-Americans from registering to vote at all."
Republican officials say the implication of the ad is both clear and ugly.

This is the kind of whip cracking that I talked about in one of my previous posts. People like this use the classic scare tactics to make people back into a corner and never come out. There's people that do that. I've witnessed it myself. They will get scared, and then will back into a corner, and freeze. They won't try to do anything to get away as long as the person is still using the scare tactics. So what does the intimidator do? They keep cracking that whip.

Another memo was reported a few days ago telling Democrats...
"If there are any signs of present or expected intimidation activity, in advance of Election Day, launch a press program ... If no signs of intimidation tactics have emerged yet, launch a 'pre-emptive' strike," reads the Democratic National Committee (search) manual.
That "strike," according to the manual, would include issuing a press release. It also suggests that party workers "prime minority leadership to discuss the issue" and "place stories expressing concerns about potential intimidation in the local media."
Republicans call the manual's instructions a nasty trick meant to create fear and animosity among minority populations. They say Bush has been trying to appeal to minority voters, not suppress their votes, and that the DNC manual means that campaign workers could hurl baseless charges in the final days of this hard-fought campaign.
"'Allege voter intimidation even where none exists' is essentially what it says," said Ed Gillespie, chairman of the Republican National Committee (
search). "That is what they do. They are engaged in the politics of fear and so this is part of their campaign based on completely manufactured, made-up charges."
The Kerry campaign approved the election manuals, and Democrats say they are doing nothing wrong.

And these memos are coming from the people who are in courts right now in key battleground states, trying to get Ralph Nader off the ticket. That sound innocent enough, but the true meaning behind these lawsuits are to keep absentee ballots from going out to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. A recent poll came out the other day that showed Bush ahead in military votes 69%-29% So what does Kerry do? He calls all his lawyers to lock up the courts so that he can disenfranchise the military vote in those states, while at the same time, his party accuses Republicans of using intimidation to keep Blacks away from the polls. Another showing of how Democrats really think. GOP And The City has a great line about the Democrat tactics saying, "If the race was all that close, would the Democrats be so willing to start lobbing urban legends, personal insults, and making such false claims? Well, they would probably still do all that, but not to the extent they are now. It is like watching someone drown, grasping at anything they can get their hands on to save their own ass. It is actually pretty sad and pathetic."
