Aaron Klein's Obama-Smear Food Chain
Topic: Horowitz

Last May, we noted one particularly desperate guilt-by-association attack on Barack Obama by WorldNetDaily's Aaron Klein -- a claim that the new pastor at Obama's former church in Chicago paraphrased a line from a rap song that also included explicit lyrics, which the pastor did not reference.

You'd think that such a obviously desperate smear would disappear into the ether, right? Wrong.

The Discover the Networks profile of that pastor, Otis Moss, approvingly cites Klein's attack:

In another sermon, Moss quoted a song -- titled "Wrong N-gga to F--k With" -- by the rap artist Ice Cube. ("If I was Ice Cube," said Moss, "I would say it a little differently -- 'you picked the wrong folk to mess with.'") This song contains the following lyrics:

"Down wit the niggaz that I bail out
I'm platinum b-tch and I didn't have to sell out
F--- you Ice Cube, that's what the people say
F--- AmeriKKKa, still with the triple K
Cause you know when my nine goes buck
it'll bust your head like a watermelon dropped from 12 stories up
Now let's see who'll drop"

LIke Klein, at no point does Discover the Networks offer evidence that Moss citted the offensive lyrics.

Apparently, David Horowitz is just as desperate to smear Obama as Klein is.
