Union Activist compares Obama to Jesus...Palin to Pontius Pilate

Karen Duncan, Virginia Blogger and unyielding union activist compares Governor Sarah Palin to Pontius Pilate and Senator Obama to Jesus.

(Top-right is a picture of Karen Duncan, with here husband Dan (President of the Northern Virginia Central Labor Council), and former missionary and Governor....Tim Kaine.) Picture is taken from Karen's blog and is used according Fair Use laws:

Karen Duncan and her husband Dan (who is president of the Northern Virginia Central Labor Council) are two of the nicest, avowedly liberal, and most left wing activists in Northern Virginia. Thus, we are somewhat surprised that she chose to sink to this level......

Jesus Was a Community Organizer. Pontius Pilate Was a Governor
This will be uncharacteristically brief because I'm running out the door to volunteer at the Fairfax Obama headquarters where I work every Sunday between 3 and 6 pm as a greeter. I also enter data for them, so the stuff the canvassers bring back, I, and lots of other volunteers, put in the database to be used later on for the GOTV effort. One more pitch, if you haven't done so yet, please volunteer.

Meanwhile, I want to direct your attention to a great
discussion on RK about the real importance of community organizers. Since speaker after speaker at the Republican Convention, following Sarah Palin's lead, mocked community service and poor people, it might be useful to read about the value that community organizers bring to underserved communities.

Best quote in the diary was something said on the Diane Rehm show on September 5.
"As a committed Christian I was deeply offended by Sarah Palin and the Republican delegates mocking and belittling community organizers the other night. Jesus was a community organizer. Pontius Pilate was a Governor." - Diane Rehm Show, 9/5/08

Next time you see Karen and Dan Duncan's best friend and former missionary, Governor Tim Kaine, please ask him if he agrees that all governors are just like Pontius Pilate?

Yet again, the elephants have a cow.
What part of the statement, "Jesus was a community organizer, Pontius Pilate was a governor" is factually incorrect?

I'm not exactly clear what part of the statement you're arguing with here, other than completely distorting the original remarks to say all governors are just like Pontius Pilate. Of course, since the top of the national Republican ticket is building its entire campaign on lies, I suppose you're just following marching orders. Keep up the good work and good luck winning any races up here in Northern Virginia in the next generation or so.

Well, thank you for calling Dan and me nice. And for using a picture that doesn't make me look fat. BTW, never mind the fair use, you're certainly welcome to use the picture - credit for the photo should go to George Burke, who took it at the July 4th Central Labor Council Picnic, outside the CLC Headquarters, two years ago.

I would like to clear up a couple of small inaccuracies. I'm not really a union activist just an unyielding union supporter. I'm more of a Democratic activist and Dan's the union activist. That's important because I actually am not a member of an AFL-CIO union.

Also, I didn't compare Obama to Jesus and Palin to Pontius Pilate. I was quoting from the Diane Rehm Show, where somebody had made the observation that Pilate was a governor (technically, a procurator appointed by the Emperor of Rome, not elected like a modern govenor).

Anyway, I thought it was a funny comment. But it's hardly fair to blame Tim Kaine for it since he had nothing to do with Diane Rehm's show or my blog. And I'm not his best friend, though I admire him. The picture is, after all, two years old. For all I know, he'd run screaming from me today.

But other than those small inaccuracies, keep up the good work :)
