Anita Dunn, Were You Also Joking About Mother Teresa? 毛与特丽莎修女?

陈凯一语: Kai Chen's Words:

Jamie Glazov 提出不能让 Anita Dunn 崇毛事件就这样轻率了结。 我完全同意。 Anita Dunn 说她只是说着玩儿。 这让我想起尼克松基金会的人说毛塑像展出只是为了“有历史感”一样。 崇魔的借口真是无所不有。 --- 陈凯

Jamie Glazov mentions here that we should not let Anita Dunn's "worshipping Mao" incident off the hook that easily. I totally agree. Anita Dunn is now saying that she was only joking when she said "Mao is one of her favorite philosophers". That reminds me of the people from the Nixon Foundation (maybe Nixon himself) that display of Mao's statue among the world leaders such as Winston Churchill is only for "history". The excuses/pretenses for worshipping devil are indeed colorful and countless. --- Kai Chen

So President Obama’s White House communications director, Anita Dunn, is off the hook just like that? She praises Mao Zedong, the greatest mass murderer in history, and when confronted on it says she was joking and that’s it. Why is that just it? Would it be just it if any politician or any person in a responsible position out there verbalized an admiration for Adolf Hitler?

The key issue here is that Dunn was clearly not joking. Watch her videotaped speech to high schoolers and see for yourself. With the utmost earnestness, she calls Mao “one of the two people that I turn to most” and goes into a detailed and completely serious explanation of why she holds both Mao and Mother Teresa in high regard in the context of perseverance and choosing one’s own path.

Anita Dunn should not be let off the hook so easily, let alone let off the hook at all. And here at NewReal Blog we are not going to let her off the hook. We’re not going to let an adviser to the President of the United States off the hook for articulating a veneration of a communist despot who murdered 70 million of his own people.

And so today at NewsReal we are starting a campaign. And that campaign consists of one question to Anita Dunn that we want answered: Were you also joking about Mother Theresa being “one of the two people that I turn to most”? Because you did mention Mao in combination with Mother Teresa. So if you were joking about Mao, were you also joking about Mother Teresa? We want our question answered. And we are asking for all members of the media to join us in this campaign to get an answer from Anita Dunn. Please support us and demand an answer to this question.

Editor’s note: Get the whole story on why leftists venerate communist mass murderers in Jamie Glazov’s new book, United in Hate: The Left’s Romance with Tyranny and Terror.
