Opinions of Anthony Weiner

Postby Nightkill the Emperor » Sun Apr 10, 2011 5:26 pm

viewtopic.php?f=20&t=106382&start=25

Redirected from that thread.

What are your opinions of Weiner? I myself like him, he seems smart and has balls, and isn't afraid to criticize the Republicans. What's the rest of NSG's opinion?

Nat: Night's always in some bizarre state somewhere between "intoxicated enough to kill a hair metal lead singer" and "annoying Mormon missionary sober".

Swith: It's because you're so awesome. God himself refreshes the screen before he types just to see if Nightkill has written anything while he was off somewhere else.

He's the Democrats' resident bad-ass.

I may vote for him, depends on the alternatives.

I really don't like his views on Israel and the war on drugs.

Not sure, I don't know the views of every American politician.

He is a vehement proponent of Israel, though. I don't want to see the U.S. involved in another war.

you are going to have to pass over the vast majority of american politicians if you want one that is not a vehement proponent of israel. so much so that i doubt that anyone who would not voice such an opinion is probably a piss poor candidate for anything.

He seems to have balls, and he seems to have some good ideas with regards to health care.

However, according to his Wikipedia page, he is pretty strongly pro-Israel, supports partial-birth abortion, and voted for Iraq (though he later claimed to regret it). Also was fined for campaign misconduct.

When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - President Abraham Lincoln.

I'm aware of that. But it would be a mistake to equate them to Weiner. (equate Weiner to them?)

The man wants to end all international aid to Palestine, and kicking the Palestinian delegation out of the U.N. He's a wholly owned spokesman for the Israeli lobby, and a borderline Kahanist.

That's very troubling. All aid? So, he's in favor of letting Palestinian children starve?

There's a lot a like about the man, but damn.

Weiner is the most bad-ass democrat in politics now, or ever. I disagree with him on some things, but he's one of the only democrats that doesn't bend over to the GOP.

AMY GOODMAN: After I spoke with [Congressmember John Murtha], I talked to New York Democratic Congressmember Anthony Weiner. In May, Weiner successfully added an amendment to a House bill banning aid to the Palestinian Authority. The amendment would outlaw the Palestinian delegation at the United Nations and kick them out of the United States.

AMY GOODMAN: You called for the Palestinian delegation to the UN to pack their bags, or more specifically, to pack their "little Palestinian terrorist bags."

REP. ANTHONY WEINER: Right, yes.


AMY GOODMAN: Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the New York Times has called for an investigation of Israel for the use of cluster bombs on Lebanon. What are your thoughts?

REP. ANTHONY WEINER: Well, first of all, a lot of those organizations, Amnesty International in particular, has always had bias against Israel, and frankly I would argue that in many cases, the New York Times has, as well. You know, Israel didn’t choose to have a war. Israel—this is not about land. Hezbollah hasn’t said, "We want this sliver of land." They’ve essentially crossed over an international border. They are an organization who, their avowed purpose is to eliminate Israel. Frankly, they’re the enemies of the United States, as well.

This thread needs a poll: would you vote for Anthony Weiner as President?

That is actually a tough choice for me to make. I do like him more than Obama, but he has no out-of-base appeal, and would give whoever wins the GOP primary a better chance at winning; So, the reason I would not vote for him is pragmatic rather than political reasons.
