Democrats Threatened Jewish Groups Over Palin Invite To UN Rally

Groups organized a rally outside the UN to protest Iran's Ahmadinejad, they invited politicians from both sides of the aisle. Clinton canceled upon hearing Palin would attend. Democrats threatened the Jewish Groups, forcing them to disinvite Palin.

CBS2 has a Democratic politician on record with the story of why Sarah Palin's invitation was rescinded after Hillary Clinton pulled out of the event upon hearing that Palin was also invited and planned to attend the rally to protest Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaking at the UN, with one Democratic lawmaker calling it "McCarthyism."

Once Clinton canceled and announced she would not attend according to the report, the "axes were out for Palin" and the Jewish Groups which organized the event were told their tax exempt status would be jeopardized if Palin attended but Hillary Clinton or Democratic vice presidential candidate, Joe Biden did not.

CBS 2 spoke to Assemblyman Dov Hikind, Democrat from Brooklyn, who said, "This is insulting. This is embarrassing, especially to Gov. Palin, to me and I think it should be to every single New Yorker."

Hikind goes on to to declare, "It's an absolute shame that this has happened. To threaten organizations … to threaten the Conference of Presidents that if you don't withdraw the invitation to Gov. Palin we're going to look into your tax exempt status … that's McCarthyism."

Hillary Clinton refused to answer any questions about it when CBS 2's Lou Young asked her about it on Thursday, brushing right past her without answering.

Bob Kunst of is a Democrat fed up and states, "I'm absolutely appalled at the behavior of the Democrats. I'm a Democrat and for the first time in my life I'm going to vote Republican. I can't take it anymore."

The Democrats, using Hillary Clinton, deliberately manipulated an event that should have been non-partisan with members from both sides of the political aisle standing up with the Jewish Groups at this rally, pulled Clinton for no other reason than to claim it was then partisan because Clinton chose not to attend, then threatened the Groups to assure themselves Palin could not attend.

That is pathetic and low, even for them. states it beautifully:

That’s not a political party pressuring groups to do something. That’s outright break-your-kneecap, Mafia-style blackmail threats.

In fact, those are precisely the kinds of tactics that the Jewish groups will be protesting on Monday. We just never expected them from the Democrats.

That is what the Deocratic Party has become and I cannot blame Kunst one iota for leaving the party and now voting Republican.
