101 ways to politicize a tragedy?
Received this email Jan 26.
Yesterday, my close friend and fellow Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords resigned from Congress to continue her recovery.
I went with her to the floor of the House to serve as her voice — and to thank her for her service to this country.
Join me in thanking her by adding your name to a note. I’ll make sure she gets it.
Gabby made one thing very clear with these words:
“I will recover and will return, and we will work together again, for Arizona, and for all Americans.”
I know she is going to be back. Until then, let’s show her we’re all behind her:
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz Chair Democratic National Committee
In itself somewhat benign but then I realized your are directed to the DMC change that matters web site to sign the note. Donate, add your name to their propaganda list etc. NEVER, NEVER LET A TRAGEDY GO TO WASTE!
The original response to the tragedy in Arizona was, as we all know, much worse. At that time the calculation was that Sarah Palin would be the Republican nomine, so she was called personally responsible for the tragedy since she had targeted Gabrielle Gifford for defeat. The memorial service in Tuscon Arizona turned into a pep rally? This picture shows you why.
Do not let a tragedy slow down your pace.
“Together we thrive” we must now all embrace.
What happened to tact?
To mourn is a fact,
It must have its time, – then we enter the race.
