Cynthia McKinney's Excellent Adventure
Green Party presidential candidate, truther, and world-class crackpot Cynthia McKinney was attracted to the media buzz surrounding the drama in Gaza like a Kennedy is drawn to an appointed Senate seat.
With the 60-foot yacht Dignity beneath her, the voluble Ms. McKinney accompanied a gaggle of Palestinian apologists and international members of the tin-foil hat-wearing, busy-body brigade on what was characterized in the compliant media as a "humanitarian mission." As is so often the case with the confrontational American politician, her interests collided -- this time with a vessel from the Israeli navy.
Passengers on board the Dignity claimed that the Israeli patrol boat rammed their vessel, but Israel said the two boats collided as the Israeli navy was trying to contact its captain.
Bearing 3.6 tons of purported medical supplies donated from Cyprus, the leftist crew of the good ship Dignity intended to defy the Israeli blockade of Hamastan and deliver its relief supplies to the Palestinian cause. The so-called peace activists represent a group called Free Gaza, whose toxic website can be viewed here.
The group's spokesperson, Caiomhe Butterly, has been neck deep in pro-Palestinian agitprop for years. To get a taste of McKinney's Irish counterpart's insights, try to read the self-promoting screed posing as an interview titled "I wasShot while Trying to Protect Jenin's Schoolchildren."
