Top Republican Fundraiser ‘Jokes’ About Obama AssasinationOctober 19, 2008
Remember this name: Al Austin
Mr. Austin, a top Republican fundraiser from Tampa, Florida, has mass emailed a ‘joke’ about blowing up Obama and his wife, Michelle. The punchline was “it certainly wouldn’t be a great loss, and it probably wouldn’t be an accident either.” That was the punchline to a ‘joke’ about killing a sitting US Senator, and a man who in three weeks could be the President-Elect.
This man, this horrible person, Al Austin, is not a fringe individual in the Republican Party. He is the former Finance Chairman for the National Republican Party. He has also been a co-chair of commitees to bring the Republican National Convention to Tampa, as well as personally donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Republican Party and Republican candidates. Mr. Austin has raised millions upon millions of dollars for Republicans as a fundraiser.
He probably feels comfortable in his 18 room mansion, and driving his fancy cars. Beyond wealthy, he is a massively successful real estate developer that uses his political sway to make money. He goes so far as to have personal meetings with President Bush, the outcome of said meetings can’t be quite certain, but we do know that splendor and wealth rains down on this heinous man faster than he can spend it.
This is the Republican party of today. Comfortable with questioning others patriotism and motives, all the while pushing forward the idea that blowing up those you don’t agree with would be no big deal. The very core of the Republican party has become a respite for those with less morals than dollars, and more hatred for opponents than love for country.
I do not simply call on John McCain and President Bush to publicly disavow this pathetic excuse for a man, but I call on this detestable hate filled man to leave the country. Leave this country so that those of us who do not profess killing those that are on the other side of the aisle can shake hands and move forward with the urgent business at hand. Leave the country, Mr. Austin, so that real patriots, those that care about all Americans can stabilize this quickly fracturing political landscape. Leave the country, you wizened, filthy endorser of terrorism. Leave for the good of the nation you claim to care about.
