Aaron Klein Unable to Stop Smearing Obama
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Aaron Klein apparently hasn't figured out the election is over. He's still operating in pre-election smear mode, desperately trying to tar Barack Obama with guilt-by-association claims.

We've previously noted Klein lamely attempting to still connect Obama to the Weathermen radical group and communists, even though voters rejected such tactics by handing Obama a decisive victory. He's still doing it: A Dec. 5 article by Klein mines a blog post by a former Weatherman member to baselessly present speculation as fact, that Obama "is 'feigning' a centrist position on some issues so he can ultimately push through a radical agenda."

Klein induldges in Cliff Kincaid-esque anti-communist obsessions in a Nov. 28 article that features a member of the Communist Party USA praising Obama's win.

In a Dec. 7 article, Klein tries to resurrect the secret-Muslim smear by quoting an Egyptian cleric's alleged plea urging Obama to convert to Islam. That gives Klein yet another excuse to pretend that what Obama did as a child religion-wise somehow undercuts his claims to be a Christian today. In fact, 35 of the article's 45 paragraphs are dedicated to this dubious rehash -- which shows just how desperate to smear Klein is.

Klein embarrasses himself by engaging in such near-pathological Obama-hate. But then, it fits in with the lies and distortions his employer pushes.
