Painted into a Corner with Soros, Stewart and Dean

Just how far out there is the Democrat Party now? Consider this:

George Soros, the billionaire leftist who has been buying his way into the party's driver's seat, has actually donated money to the defense of Lynne Stewart.

As reported by National Review, Soros's foundation, the Open Society Institute, gave $20,000 in September 2002 to the Lynne Stewart Defense Committee, according to records filed with the Internal Revenue Service. Stewart's Defense Committee website,, used to carry the acknowledgment, "This website is made possible by the generous support of the Open Society Institute."

Lynne Stewart has since been convicted of assisting terrorism. The client to whom she offered material assistance was a high-level Islamic terrorist involved in the lethal 1993 World Trade Center bombing, which was meant to bring about the catastrophic bloodbath that occurred on 9/11. Her help was intended to facilitate the spilling of more innocent blood.

This treasonous and sociopathic behavior was hardly out of character for Stewart, "civil rights" lawyer and darling of the New York Times. Unlike some of her supporters, Stewart is so far gone she will actually express how she really feels. A few choice quotes give an idea of the sort of person the Democratic Party's sugar daddy has funded:

On the 9/11 attacks, which she called an "armed struggle" that would inevitably cause civilian casualties, from Accuracy in Academia: "I have a lot of trouble figuring out why that is wrong."

On totalitarianism, from Monthly Review: "I don't have any problem with Mao or Stalin or the Vietnamese leaders or certainly Fidel locking up people they see as dangerous."

On violence directed against Western Civilization, from FrontPage Magazine: "I don’t believe in anarchistic violence, but in directed violence. That would be violence directed at the institutions which perpetuate capitalism..." and from Associated Press: "To rid ourselves of the entrenched, voracious type of capitalism that is in this country that perpetuates sexism and racism, I don't think that can come nonviolently."

Rather than root out the anti-American extremists that are sinking their roots into the ever more radicalized Democratic Party, or owning up to their support for them, party operatives are in aggressive denial mode. When New York State Republican Chairman Stephen Minarik observed that "the Democrats simply have refused to learn the lessons of the past two election cycles, and now they can be accurately called the party of Barbara Boxer, Lynne Stewart and Howard Dean," Dean responded by demanding that Minarik apologize or resign. Fortunately, Minarik is standing his ground.

"It is not the Republican Party's problem that these far-left activists have made their home in the Democratic party," Minarik is quoted in Newsday.

Some feel that Minarik has gotten carried away, and it is probably true that a large majority of Democrats would disown the psychopath Stewart. But the facts that the unofficial organ of the Democratic Party, the New York Times, has made a policy of whitewashing Stewart, and that the party's main financier has donated money to her defense, support the view that the party has painted itself into a corner of extremism where Stewart types find a congenial home.

Why hasn't MSM picked upon this? Will we ever see this on the front page of the NYT? Of course not. Eew-to think all these people are connected makes me sick. They're all terrorists as fas as I'm concerned.
