Rep. Grayson Lowers The Bar – FactCheck.org
Alan Grayson is infamous for being a loudmouthed left-wing lunatic. He has accused Republicans of wanting Americans to “die quickly” without healthcare, maligned Fox News as being the enemy of America, compared Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally to the Ku Klux Klan, and even wanted a critic of his to be jailed for five years. But the moonbat reached a new low with a recent ad against his opponent Daniel Webster, whom the ad refers to as "Taliban Dan Webster”:
While portraying Webster alongside images of Muslim women, the ad accuses him of wanting “to impose his radical fundamentalism on us” by forcing rape victims to bear children (somewhat true, as he does oppose abortion, even in cases of rape or incest) and preventing women from divorcing their abusive husbands (completely false). But perhaps the most damning aspect is how the ad recycles video clips of Webster demanding women to submit to their husbands, to “submit to me!” These clips were taken from a speech Webster gave at a home-schooling conference and, when taken in context, show that he was saying the exact opposite of what the ad was implying:
I have a verse for my wife, I have verses for my wife. Don’t pick the ones that say, ‘She should submit to me.’ That’s in the Bible, but pick the ones that you’re supposed to do. So instead, ‘love your wife, even as Christ loved the Church and gave himself for it’ as opposed to ‘wives submit to your own husbands.’ She can pray that, if she wants to, but don’t you pray it.
In other words, Webster was not saying wives must submit to their husbands, but that husbands should refrain from using such verses against their wives.
Good grief! Is there no low that Grayson will go? And the sad part is that he’s the Representative of Florida—my state! This ad gives me good reason not to vote for him, though I had no intention of doing so, considering his past moonbattery. And I highly suggest that all other Florida residents vote this left-wing Looney Tune out of office!
