Mitch McConnell and Wife Receive Racist Attacks from Nutty ProgressKentucky
In a series of Tweets (on Twitter), the group alleged that because Chao is Chinese, McConnell is being influenced in his decision making to favor China.
The bizarre character of the charge is based upon a long-dead conspiracy theory that Chao is some type of secret agent for China. The purpose of these evil Tweets by Progress Kentucky is to attempt to revive the silly theory and then place it on McConnell. It backfired, and those on the right and the left have rebuked the irresponsible organization for its racist comments.
Here's one of the many Tweets put up by Progress Kentucky on Twitter:
This woman has the ear of @mcconnellpress — she’s his #wife.May explain why your job moved to #China! rense.com/general77/raci…
Kentucky public radio station WFPL reported this about the story:
In a Feb. 14 Twitter message, Progress says: “This woman has the ear of (Sen. McConnell)—she’s his wife. May explain why your job moved to China!”
The Tweet links to a website run by conspiracy theorist and radio host Jeff Rense, alleging Chao, who was born in Taiwan, discriminated against American workers during her tenure.
Other messages from Progress’s social networking account about Chao have run for the past several days, saying her “Chinese (money)” is buying state elections. According to campaign finance records, members of Chao’s family donated $80,000 to the Kentucky GOP last year.
It's despicable, and shows the lengths psychotic people will go to ascend to political power. This group is so hateful of McConnell, they are darkened and blinded to such a degree they can't even see that they are the racists they are.
Progress Kentucky is isn't representative of anything good, they are just a regressive, racist group trying to manipulate the people of Kentucky into believing it's in their best interests to unseat McConnell. Their problem is they have absolutely no alternative, and their attempt to woo over the Tea Party and Republicans to their cause is a subtle lie that should be dismissed out of hand.
Their goal is to defeat McConnell and get a anti-Kentucky progressive to take his place.
