Memphis voters in the 9th Congressional District got a shockingly anti-Semitic flyer in the mail urging them to vote against Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen. “Memphis Congressman Steve Cohen and the JEWS HATE Jesus,” it announces. Why does Barack Obama allow this to happen?
The diatribe continues:
“…Memphis Christians must unite and support ONE Black Christian to represent Memphis in the United States Congress in 2008.”
The flyer was cooked up by some sort of black Christian “leader” in Murfreesboro, 250 miles away. Cohen’s opponent in the Dem primary, Nikki Tinker, has so far declined to comment on it. The only rational response to any of this, of course, is to put up a blog post demanding that Barack Obama do something now!
