In Alabama's 5th Congressional District, Democratic candidate Parker Griffith is out to educate voters on who America's greatest enemy is.
According to Parker, "America's greatest enemy is America and its materialism." Note: I had it as "imperialism," but according to the source who provided it, it was "materialism" not "imperialism."
Speaking to the Colbert-Lauderdale Baptist Association on September 15th, Parker decided to give everyone a clue on where he stands. He was asked about radical Islam and its threat to the United States. Forgetting all about September 11th, the U.S.S. Cole bombing, Richard Reid, the coordinated plot to blow up American airlines over the Pacific, etc, Parker said the following:
I think America's greatest enemy is America and its materialism.And I think that . . . uh . . . we have nothing to fear from radical Islam. We have nothing to fear from any other religion if we are strong on our own beliefs. I don't fear radical Islam.
There you have it. Another Democrat who thinks the only fear we have to fear is America itself.
The twist here is that Parker Griffith is running against a Republican who just might pick up this Democratic leaning seat. Wayne Parker is the the Republican candidate. Both Parker Griffith and Wayne Parker are trying to succeed Rep. Bud Cramer (D-AL).
