April 30, 1984
While in China, I have been distressed to learn that some individuals back home have questioned whether my views on the Ku Klux Klan have somehow changed since 1980. Nothing could be further from the truth.
In 1980, I said that I have no tolerance for what the Klan represents, and would have nothing to do with any groups of that type. If anything, my feelings on this subject have only grown stronger. The politics of racial hatred and religious bigotry practiced by the Klan and others have no place in this country, and are destructive of the values for which America has always stood. Those of us in public life can only resent the use of our names by those who seek political recognition for the repugnant doctrines of hate they espouse.
I firmly believe that there is no room for partisanship on this question. Democrats and Republicans alike must be resolute in disassociating ourselves from any group or individual whose political philosophy consists only of racial or religious intolerance, whose arguments are supported only by intimidation or threats of violence.
We must, and will, continue our unified rejection of such elements of hate in our political life, for while there are many issues which divide us, it is fundamental principles such as this which will always draw us together.
This is what Barack Obama did after MoveOn.org knowingly and willfully allowed its Action Forum to be used as a platform for racist, anti-Catholic, anti-Semitic, and anti-Christian hate speech, along with 9/11 denial.
(9/11 denial is like Holocaust denial, except it writes off, excuses, or blames on the Bush Administration and/or the Jews four missing airplanes and two missing skyscrapers instead of six million missing Jews and three million missing Polish Catholics.)

The fact that this post was not removed by the moderators of MoveOn’s Action Forum really irritates me, because it is patently anti-Semitic. But what makes it even worse is that the post has received a 70% approval rating.
I have heard and read on several other blogs, and even in a couple of newspaper editorials that MoveOn.org has been accused of anti-Semitism, but this puts no doubt in my mind it is true!
And don’t use that tired veil of an argument saying that just because you hate Israel doesn’t mean you hate Jews.
Joe Lieberman is a fine American and has served the Democratic Party well. Even if one does not agree with his politics anymore, there is absolutely no reason to defame his name by calling him “Jew” Lieberman. An what’s worse it is shocking that 7 out of 10 people on this forum agree to this kind of ethnic slander and intolerance. I am ashamed I ever joined this political movement.

1. RE: JEW ——–
We need your help in finding a word that is less offensive.
One that describes the Jewish congressmen and Jewish owned media that has a greater allegiance to Israel than the US. And who are demonizing Israel’s neighbors and supporting Israel’s bombing and occupation. Read “Israeli Lobby” google it.more…
12. Freedom can only be derived when all are treated equally.
…I will pledge allegiance to America when JEWS and CONSERVATIVES are willing to sacrifice their love ones as they and you are willing to sacrifice “PEOPLE of COLOR”. Russia’s President told you correctly, when he stated his country did not want Iraq style democracy. All PEOPLE of COLOR and MUSLIMS should resent America’s style of democracy.
