A BAWNY REDUX



Barney Frank has spent his entire career attacking “right-wingers,” yet Frank did more to help the efforts of the real right-wingers, Islamic terrorists attacking America, than has any American politician in history. His stated reason for doing it, sponsoring a bill that struck the exclusion clause from the Immigration and Nationality Act in 1989, was to help left-wing poets, particularly his friend Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the author of “My Melancholy Whores,” enter the country legally to sell books. Marquez was denied a visa by the State Department because of his ties to Fidel Castro. As a member of Congress, Frank could have chosen to sponsor a trip for the harmless Marquez himself. Instead he sponsored a law that made it possible for all visa applicants to enter the country legally unless there was “proof” they had been involved in “terrorist activities.” Any lawyer worth a damn would tell you that it would be difficult to prove that Osama bin Laden was involved in “terrorist activities.”

Gerald Posner, in his book “Why America Slept: The Failure to Prevent 9/11,” wrote that Frank had “led a successful effort to amend the Immigration and Nationality Act so that membership in a terrorist group was no longer sufficient to deny a visa. Under Frank’s amendment, which seems unthinkable post–Sept. 11, a visa could only be denied if the government could prove that the applicant had committed an act of terrorism.” Former CIA directors James Woolsey and George Tenet have both testified that Congress had opened the floodgates to terrorists. After its passage, terrorists associated with Hamas and al-Qaida began entering the country with legal visas, began recruiting domestic terrorists and sending funds to overseas “charities,” according to the congressional testimony of terrorism expert Steven Emerson.

"AnnCoulter: We Have Now Hit Full-On Crazy" references this Barney Frank piece of work.  Between him and Ted Kennedy, more damage was done to our country, with the possible exception of the Clinton/Obama presidencies. Here's a short look at his permanent record.

For many years I've compiled two lists of deserving political actors: Flog, and Flog Before Hang.
In honor of Frank, I think I'll start third list: Flog & Spray with Alcohol Before Hang.

This pathetic old fudgepacker should be drawn and quartered, burned, sewed back together and then executed with extreme prejudice - not necessarily in that order. Use your imagination.....

Huey Long is famous for saying that the only thing that could hurt him politically would be if he were found in bed with a dead girl or a live boy. Bawney Fwank, on the other hand, was caught in bed with a live boy (actually worse, as his "boyfriend" was running a gay brothel out of Bawney's townhouse!) and it didn't seem to faze his constituents in the slightest. Same for Ted "The Swimmer" Kennedy, who was caught with a dead girl in his car. As Bob Grant used to say, "It's sick out there, and getting sicker!"
