El Salvador's Communist Candidate Channels Obama

Meet Mauricio Funes -- former CNN correspondent and Communist candidate for President of El Salvador. Who is he comparing himself to (much to the State Department's chagrin)? Barack Obama.

For those who don't remember the FMLN were communist terrorists, famous for murdering and slaughtering entire villages who opposed them back in the 80's. Wonderful people these lefties.

So what's your point? Bunny stated that the FMLN were Communist terrorists back in the 80s, and your Wikipedia link agrees.

That's weird. Can't find that anywhere. Looks like they are majority party half the time elected by the people.

Perhaps if you could copy, paste, and tell me where it is you found reference to the FMLN being a terrorist organisation or murdering and masacring entire villages.

I didn't read every line, just skimmed but I dont' think it's in there.

Is it true that right wing Americans figure anyone elected by a majority are terrorists?

Bunny you there? Maybe you could help us out. You were the one who posted. Expat just devolves as he usually does to shouting off topic drivel. I'm waiting for you know who (Godwin's Rule) or Socializm.

You really are tedious, Civet.

The second link isn't really FMLN specific, but you've scoffed at FAS before without knowing who they were or where they stood and I figured I'd at least try to educate your kool-aid and conspiracy addled mind.

And by the way, I know you're tired of hearing this, but Hitler and Mussolini were both elected by majorities. Just because the majority elects someone doesn't mean that person/organization is altruistic.

Sorry, if you can't tell me where it is that means it's not there. Quoting a bunch of nutty sources does nothing to convince me. I preffer non denominational sources, especially if you've already told me something is there.

You know I dislike your Hitler fixation, but I just thought I'd remind you 30% and 36% are not a majority. Something you might bear in mind when considering the next election.

neener!

I think the deliberate use of you know who's name nullifies Godwin.

Nutty sources? I quoted the Federation of American Scientists, which has 70 Nobel laureates on its Board of Sponsors. You quoted Wikipedia.

"Non-denominational sources"? What...like KOS? You're famous for posting links to left-wing blogs.

Watching you work is like watching Paris Hilton discuss thermodynamics.

As for Hitler, you need to read the rest of Godwin's Law. It just says comparisons will arise -- it doesn't say they're always wrong. It's appropriate to point out contradictions in the historical record when someone makes a statement that altruism is defined through electoral victory.

#1 You said that the Wiki article said something. I said where. I'd still like to know where.

#2 I didn't even look at your sources, I'm still waiting on you to show me where wiki says

Quote:
FMLN were Communist terrorists

not saying it's not there, just that I didn't see it.

#3 waiting to hear how you know who getting 30% then 36% in the runoff makes a majority.

When you answer these I'll start looking at your source. This is typical. You spout a bunch of baloney, when you get called on it you spout a bunch more baloney expecting to slide on the first.

I have better things to do than correct nutty r wingers on a forum.

Hello, McFly? Bunny posted the Wiki article. I agreed that FMLN had a terrorist past and posted the two articles to back it. If you can't even sort out who made the statement, how can you claim to be smart enough to understand anything else?

As for the rest, give me a break. Are you really this dense? Or is it just that you have absolutely nothing to counter the fact that a Communist representing an organization with a violent past is basing his campaign on Obama?

I believe it's the latter, because you generally seem smart enough at first, but as soon as the facts start coming out, you suddenly get a case of the stupids and can't comprehend basic concepts.

In El Savador's brutal civil war which lasted from 1979 -1992 an estimated 80,000. of it's citizens were slaughterd by malefactors on both sides. Admittedly the brutal dictatorship led by Jose Napoleon Duarte and backed up by his military and famous death squads were worse in the scope of violence and terror than the FMLA. The FMLA however were no white hatted heroes either. The FMLA received their political and military instruction in north vietnam and Cuba. Reference the book Vietnam to El Salvador, by David Spencer. It is written from the authors own combat and first hand experience in the region.

The FMLA retaliated against atrocities commited by the government with atrocities of their own to include the execution of mayors, politicians, Judges and civic leaders and the kidnapping and execution of their familiy members and members of their community. Mass atrocities committed against entire towns/villiages suspected of cooperating with the government or military are also documented. by no less then the United Nations commission on the truth for El Salvador in their 1992 (I think) report entitled "From madness to hope, The 12 year war in El Savador"

The commision was headed up by Columbias Presidet Betancur, Venezuales Planchet and a Professor of law at George Washingtnon university who's name escapes me. Since you love links so much here's on for you.
