Cynthia McKinney (D-Conspiracy)

THE INCOMING REPRESENTATIVE FROM GEORGIA’S 4th congressional district is the outspoken Cynthia McKinney. She is a Democrat, she is 49 years old, and she has held the job before. She held it for a decade, in fact, from 1992, when she became the first black woman elected to Congress from Georgia, to 2002–when, she says, the “hostile corporate media,” allied with Republicans, “repeated falsehoods” about her, “distorted” her positions, and drove her from “my seat.”

That is McKinney’s explanation for her 2002 primary defeat, and she is sticking to it. But there are other explanations. Her father, Georgia state legislator Billy McKinney, shared his version with an Atlanta television reporter on August 19, 2002, the night before she lost. The reporter had asked Billy McKinney about his daughter’s use of a years-old, moth-balled endorsement from former Atlanta mayor Andrew Young. Such endorsements were worthless, the elder McKinney replied, because “Jews have bought everybody. Jews.” In case the reporter didn’t understand, he spelled the word: “J-E-W-S.” (A few weeks later, in a runoff against a political neophyte, Billy McKinney became a former Georgia state legislator.)

The actual reason why Cynthia McKinney left Congress in 2002 was that, for once, she couldn’t outrun her mouth. She had walked along the cutting edge of progressive politics for years–appearing with Louis Farrakhan, calling globalization a “cruel hoax,” advocating for Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe–but then, in a March 25, 2002, interview on KPFA Pacifica radio, she suddenly fell off.

So What?

It's time to unite. It's time to focus on what we agree on and become stronger together. Cynthia McKinney agreed to Ron Paul's list. She may not be our presidential choice...that's OK. When I meet Green Party members (and I know a few from all the antiwar protests I've attended over the years) I will applaud McKinney's agreement with Ron Paul.

Ron Paul is on top and respected for UNITING third parties and independents. Let's promote this and tear down those who will not join the rEVOLution and Campaign for Liberty with US! Come on!!

Looks like the McKinneys were right

Not all Jews of course...but generally they were dead on.

And the powers that be don't like it when you speak the truth.

If you're trapped down a deep well...

are you going to question the political affiliations of the rescue team?
McKinney has demonstrated both guts and self-sacrifice. She and Nader deserve our respect, if not our votes.

Bob Barr yesterday, "threw down both ends of the rope." You don't get Brownie points for that.

I'm writing in "Chuck Baldwin" here in Georgia; but, if that weren't possible I'd vote for McKinney or Nader. I wouldn't vote for Barr under any circumstances.


made Rumsfeld stammer...literally. She asked him about industrial-complex contracts in Iraq & all he could do was blather away like an idiot. She is a hard ass that none of the neo-cons want to deal with. Search her on youtube with rumsfeld. It is fantastic.

Yep, this is true

“Jews have bought everybody. Jews.” In case the reporter didn’t understand, he spelled the word: “J-E-W-S.”

It would have been much better

if he said Zionist. Not all Jews support the Zionist and it goes much
deeper, wider, and longer than just Jews.

Why can't some people see the picture. Jews are being used just
like other people. Muslims are being used by their own rulers.

It's time for We the People of the world to stand up against those
who want to control us.

I want to see this Unity Party to expand worldwide. We are more
in numbers than "They" are.

I'll see who is on the ballot in Arkansas and go from there.

We all vote a 3rd party and we can see just how many we have in
the numbers.

yes i really wish people would learn to use the word

Zionist instead of jews in these types of discussions
