Hillary Clinton’s Obama Muslim smear email – Full Text

Here’s The Obama Muslim Smear E-mail Sent Out By The County Chair Volunteering For Hillary

We’ve just obtained a copy of the Obama Muslim smear email — smear-mail? — that the Iowa county chair volunteering for Hillary sent out. Key quotes:

“Obama’s parents met at the University of Hawaii . When Obama was two years old, his parents divorced. His father returned to Kenya . His mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a RADICAL Muslim from Indonesia . When Obama was 6 years old, the family relocated to Indonesia . Obama attended a MUSLIM school in Jakarta.”


“Since it is politically expedient to be a CHRISTIAN when seeking major public office in the United States , Barack Hussein Obama has joined the United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim background.”

Ben Smith notes that one of the people on the chain of this email is a Clinton staffer named Ryan Callanan, who received the email on November 21. It’s unclear what level Callanan occupies or what exactly this means.

The email was sent by someone identified only as “Judy” whose email address begins jcheroke. The Clinton campaign has said they are now asking a volunteer county coordinator to leave the campaign when the email came to light.

  2. Why is does the title of your story insist upon the email being “Hillary’s… Smear Email”, when the story clearly states that it was written and spread by the Iowa County Chair? Are people that worried that they’ll attribute things to Hillary, even while revealing she had *nothing whatsoever* do do with the actions listed?

    Please remove your cranium from the end of your digestive tract. This is a non-story. “OMG – a person who supports a candidate is spreading propaganda with FUD!”. It happens all the time, with every candidate. Especially one particular candidate, whose supporters have been likened to sheep or “-bots”, because while dodging the serious questions, they spit out the same tired rhetoric about “Well, in the 1990’s, Hillary supported….” Please. The saddest thing is the young people seem to be buying into this, and I think it’s because they’re too young to realize how this world really works. Its nice to speak about “Hope” and idealism, but hard work is what got us where we are.

  3. You just don’t understand how political campaign are run.
