The presumptive Republican presidential nominee appeared alongside former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani to respond to a widely publicized taunt hurled at him by the Community Organizer-in-Chief. Without benefit of a time machine, President Obama, whose extended victory dance over killing 9/11 terrorist Osama bin Laden has been receiving saturation media coverage in recent days, preposterously claimed that Romney might not have tried to dispatch the al-Qaeda leader if given the chance.
In an incident captured on news video, the female heckler screamed, “Mitt Romney, you’re a racist!” almost a dozen times, wrecking the public relations optics of the event that was choreographed to highlight Romney’s foreign policy acumen.
It is axiomatic that when left-wingers are desperately worried about losing power they pull out their oldest and most reliable canard. Liberals and their more radical brethren scream “racist!” over and over and over again as if sheer repetition of the lie will somehow make it true.
The attention-seeking woman, identified by New York Magazine as Nastaran Mohit, also cussed at the former Massachusetts governor, screaming, “Fuck you, Mitt Romney!”
Mohit, who turns 30 next month, is the legislative director for a radical left-wing advocacy group called Domestic Workers United (DWU). When lobbying lawmakers in Albany presumably she refrains from dropping F-bombs.
The 12-year-old group Mohit works for describes itself on its website as “an organization of Caribbean, Latina and African nannies, housekeepers, and elderly caregivers in New York, organizing for power, respect, fair labor standards and to help build a movement to end exploitation and oppression for all.”
One of radical philanthropist George Soros’s charities, the Foundation to Promote Open Society, gave DWU a $75,000 grant in 2010 “to support the implementation of the domestic worker bill of rights.” That statute, enacted later the same year, provides certain labor protections for nannies, caregivers, and housekeepers. Those workers have long been targeted for recruitment by labor unions such as the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), President Obama’s favorite labor organization.
