Skip to comments.MoveOn Flees Scarborough Country

The left revealed its true nature once again Wednesday night on MSNBC's 'Scarborough Country' when a spokeswoman from MoveOn slunk cowardly off the show before her segment was to air.
The show's host had invited the MoveOn representative to the program to discuss the organization's Monday night event that unveiled the winner of its Bush in 30 seconds contest.
As everyone by now knows, the January 12 event degenerated into an orgy of hate as one entertainer after another took the stage to curse, howl and rant at the President.
Yet when the MSNBC political talk show was kind enough to give MoveOn a platform from which to present the organization's views of the event- MoveOn moved out in a hurry.
The spokesperson from MoveOn, who fled the set during a commercial, cited fears of 'being ambushed' by the show's host. What had the host done to her? Nothing except air some video footage of this past Mondays event in order to set up her segment of the show. Sometimes, I guess the truth is just too ugly to defend.
Isn't it amazing the difference a couple of days make?
On Monday night, this same woman's organization sponsored what could only be described as a frenzied beat-down in effigy of the President. But come Wednesday evening, lacking the comfort of a lynch mob to back her up, this minion of George Soros beat a quick and silent retreat without saying a word.
One would think that for the sake of the cause she'd at least wait long enough to sling a few barbs at Dubya before tucking tail and running. This inexplicable exit during the Scarborough appearance scored no points for them at all.
It says something, I believe, about the character of the MoveOn organization which also demonstrated an ability to backpedal furiously last week when it was revealed that two entries to its ad contest likened our President to Adolf Hitler.
Rather than stand by its guns to decide the contest through the 'democratic process' as it had originally planned to do, MoveOn.org sold out in favor of Realpolitik and yanked the ads from its site, denouncing them as tasteless.
It seems we are beginning to discern something of a pattern in the organization's behavior.
When it was reported in December that a Swedish political website- Democracy Aid '04- was running a campaign to donate funds to MoveOn.org in order to help remove President Bush from office, MoveOn quickly backpedaled from that policy as well.
The Swedish site posts on its front page the following message:
"As of December 12, Move On no longer accepts contributions from non US citizens/permanent resident aliens..."
A Canadian website- Canada for Clark- begrudgingly removed a link to MoveOn.org when it was revealed by the Drudge Report that the site had been directing Canadian money donors to MoveOn.
The website states: The link to MoveOn.org has of course been removed, as we have just become aware of the organization's new rules concerning foreign donations.
MoveOns mission is to remove George Bush from the White House but to this point they are hurting the Democrats worse than they are the President.
I imagine right now, Howard Dean (who, incidently, won MoveOns mock primary last summer) has got to be scratching his head and thinking With friends like these, who needs enemies?
This liberal internet attack dog hasnt bitten for the dems. It has shown only an ability to pee on the rug in front of the dinner guests.
Indeed, MoveOn is becoming something of a pariah with even CBS not wanting to touch their contest winning advertisement for all Soros' megabucks. But for MoveOn's hapless stumblings they might have aired their commercial on the network during the Super Bowl and had it seen by many millions.
As it is, they not only fumbled the snap for the Democrats but look set to be soon carried off the field on a stretcher.
MoveOn is, quite obviously, out of its league but I'm not sure they realize this fact. They tout themselves as a force to be reckoned with but practical experience teaches that it is hard to reckon with a spineless wretch who will not stand and defend his convictions.
Unfortunately, this will not be the last we hear of MoveOn or the craven lot that took the stage Monday night. Before November we will witness more of their antics. They've got a big time sugar daddy signing the paychecks after all and Al Gore seems very fond of them too.
But the hate festival of Monday night followed by MoveOn running in fear from Scarborough's show later in the week leaves no doubt what type of political animal MoveOn is, for there is another creature in nature who acts in a similar manner: the hyena.
A skulking, sneering coward of a predator, it runs from confrontation when alone and displays courage only in a pack.

Yet, curiously they're ok with spewing their flithy lies & runing away without backing anything up with FACT.
SOP of the evil left, wouldn't you say?
Why would the MoveOn.org chick flee if he's so sympathetic to them?
On the contrary, it's laughably easy.
That's an excellent point.Another example of just how lame their point of view(s) are.
She felt a "chill wind," no doubt. LLLs really do equate opposition with oppression, and behave accordingly.
Im still laughing
Your Freudian slip is showing... You mean 'adversity', right?
They may grow up someday when daddy is done footing the bill for the damn plane rides.
Not surprising this girl has no backbone and was an emotional wreck. Most lefties are.
