The MassGOP Establishment:
Hypocrisy at its worse !
Chai Ling, on right, wife of MASSGOP Chairman candidate Bob Maginn on left. She added her support to the Occupy Boston on October 12, 2011.
U.S. Senator Scott Brown and the Massachusetts Republican Establishment have heavily criticized Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic Favorite to challenge Brown for his Senate seat in 2012, for attributing her comments about being the one who founded the intellectual movement behind the occupy wall street movement which is growing across the planet as we speak as a result of the greed of the top 1% of the world controlling the majority of the world economy compared to the proletarian 99% who are fighting for their equal rights.
Recently, both the Massachusetts Republican Party and a national special interest group led by Karl Rove, only within the last 3 days have spent nearly $600,000 in the Boston, Worcester, Springfield, and Providence TV regions criticizing Warren for taking responsibility of the populist Occupy movement.
This same group of Massachusetts Republicans is supporting Bob Maginn, failed 1998 State Treasurer candidate who was annihilated by Shannon O’Brian- failing to keep Joe Malone’s treasurer’s seat in the hands of the Massachusetts Republicans.
In 1998, Maginn who at the time had $12 million in assets, pledged to use his personal resources to keep the seat. By the election, Maginn was heavily criticized because he used little. Maginn’s defeat was embarrassing. Today Maginn is poised to be elected by the Massachusetts GOP establishment to become Chairman of the MassGOP.
This is the same Bob Maginn whose wife Chai Ling, was the Commander in Chief of the student revolution in 1989 China in Tiananmen Square. While the fact Chai Ling stood up for the Chinese is admirable, however Bob Maginn’s wife is the same Chai Ling who at the Occupy Boston on October 11, 2011 declared to the Occupiers that she would train them and help them as a leader.
This is the same Chai Ling who said about the Occupy Wall Street Movement in her October 12, 2011 speech to the crowd at Dewey Square:
“They [the protesters] shouldn’t be underestimated,’’ said Chai Ling, an author and founder of a Boston education software company. She should know. As a leader of the 1989 student-led protest in China’s Tiananmen Square, she was responsible for providing tens of thousands of demonstrators with tents, food, water, and sanitation. On this night in Dewey Square, she was advising protesters on strategies for expanding their encampment and warning of the consequences when a nation’s young people lose hope for a better society.
“I feel their desire,’’ said Ling. “If it’s channeled properly, they can change America.’’
The point is how can both Massachusetts Republican Leaders like U.S. Senator Scott Brown criticize and ridicule Elizabeth Warren for her comments that she created the “intellectual movement behind Occupy Wall Street” yet, Brown’s candidate for Massachusetts Republican Party Chairman, Bob Maginn’s wife is endorsing, embracing, and stepping in as a leader for the Occupy Wall Street Movement in Dewey Square here in Boston?
HYPOCRACY AT ITS BEST!
Will this fact that Maginn’s wife is an arduant supporter of Occupy Boston knock Maginn out of the race for chairman of the Massachusetts Republicans?
The election for the next Chairman of the Massachusetts Republican Party will be held on Wednesday, November 30th at 7:00PM at the Marriott in Newton.
