The Cynthia McKinney Perspective


The Cynthia McKinney Perspective is your archive to key documents, speeches and information from and about Cynthia McKinney [former Congresswoman, Georgia, 4th District], which enables you to see what truly motivates her and the documentation she references. We also debunk the key distortions, mistruths and flat-out lies that have been propagated about Ms. McKinney. So, get yourself a nice cup of tea, coffee or whatever, and then dig in.

We are happy to announce the launch of;
         Good Hair Gone Bad
                      The Roots of Hair Politics      
         POWERED BY
s6k MediaCynthia

Make no mistake, the politics of hair and ethnicity is no light topic. People get hired or fired over it and people are treated differently because of it. No matter whether it's a concern to you personally, there are those who would deny that which you are qualified for and have worked for because of your hairstyle.

If you have anything you believe should be here, please send it to us. 
Anything we use will have the name of the person who supplied it, unless they would rather be anonomous.

[BULLETIN] Ms. McKinney and s6k are currently conceiving new ways to reach out to you...and for you to find us. Stay tuned.

SEKTION 2 - The McKinney Factor
Because Ms. McKinney has been such a lighting rod for the assaults from certain elements of our society, it is necessary to answer the many factual distortions and blatant lies. The McKinney factor is your way to find the silent facts drowned out by loud character assassinations.

 McKinney's "new hair-do" makes her look "like a ghetto slut," like "an explosion at a Brillo pad factory," like "Tina Turner peeing on an electric fence," and like "a shih tzu."
BTW - The hairdo he's talking about is the one in the picture above. We find it to be a quite beautiful style for a Black woman. His picture should tell you everything you need to know.

Distortion #1
We know there were numerous warnings of the events to come on September 11th. . . . What did this administration know and when did it know it, about the events of September 11th? Who else knew, and why did they not warn the innocent people of New York who were needlessly murdered? . . . What do they have to hide?" Cynthia McKinney

Jonah Goldberg - National Review NRO Editor-at-large
"I don't mean to be such a pain in the ass to Cynthia McKinney (D., Ga.), but it appears this is the fastest route to her brain... Catch that? "Why did they not warn the innocent people…who were needlessly murdered?" In other words, the Bush administration knew these people were going to be murdered and they did nothing about it."
Correction #1
From the 8/25/2003 edition of The New York Observer
After the formal meeting, senior agents in the room faced a grilling by Kristen Breitweiser, a 9/11 widow whose cohorts are three other widowed moms from New Jersey.

"I don’t understand, with all the warnings about the possibilities of Al Qaeda using planes as weapons, and the Phoenix Memo from one of your own agents warning that Osama bin Laden was sending operatives to this country for flight-school training, why didn’t you check out flight schools before Sept. 11?"

"Do you know how many flight schools there are in the U.S.? Thousands," a senior agent protested. "We couldn’t have investigated them all and found these few guys."

"Wait, you just told me there were too many flight schools and that prohibited you from investigating them before 9/11," Kristen persisted. "How is it that a few hours after the attacks, the nation is brought to its knees, and miraculously F.B.I. agents showed up at Embry-Riddle flight school in Florida where some of the terrorists trained?"

"We got lucky," was the reply.

Kristen then asked the agent how the F.B.I. had known exactly which A.T.M. in Portland, Me., would yield a videotape of Mohammed Atta, the leader of the attacks. The agent got some facts confused, then changed his story. When Kristen wouldn’t be pacified by evasive answers, the senior agent parried, "What are you getting at?"

"I think you had open investigations before Sept. 11 on some of the people responsible for the terrorist attacks," she said.

"We did not," the agent said unequivocally.

A month later, on the morning of July 24, before the scathing Congressional report on intelligence failures was released, Kristen and the three other moms from New Jersey with whom she’d been in league sat impassively at a briefing by staff director Eleanor Hill: In fact, they learned, the F.B.I. had open investigations on 14 individuals who had contact with the hijackers while they were in the United States. The flush of pride in their own research passed quickly. This was just another confirmation that the federal government continued to obscure the facts about its handling of suspected terrorists leading up to the Sept. 11 attacks.

Commentary by [ex-NYC Mayor] Ed Koch
"congresswoman, Cynthia McKinney...In my view...anti-Semitic and anti-Israel."

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Dear Editor,
Congratulations to Rep. Cynthia McKinney on her recent electoral victory! We are proud to offer collective Jewish support for her office and the courageous and principled public stand she continues to take by supporting a sustainable end to the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Along with many American Jews, Jews Against the Occupation does not support the Israeli military occupation of Palestine. We maintain that the wellbeing of Jews everywhere is not secured as long as the Palestinian people remain subjugated. A lasting peace is achieved through mutual respect and recognition of all peoples’ inherent right to self-determination.

Criticism of Israel does not equal antisemitism. We applaud the people of metropolitan Atlanta for acknowledging this fact and reinstating a legislator of conscience.

"People ask me whether she's antisemitic — it's more that she's pro-Palestinian," said Deborah Lauter, Southeast regional director at the Anti-Defamation League. "I don't think she's crossed the line."

Lauter pointed out that McKinney supported a July 9 House resolution condemning European antisemitism, a measure which passed in a unanimous vote.

ranscript from Hannity and Colmes on 6/2/04
HEADLINE: Will Controversial Congresswoman Regain Seat?

Elenore Clift: ...the district that she's running in, her stronghold is the African-American vote. And I'm sure they don't align themselves with the -- any anti-Semitic remarks, but I don't think there's a groundswell of opposition to Cynthia McKinney for suggesting that the Bush administration knew more about the possibility of this country be attacked than they originally led on. And that's a perfectly acceptable thing to say in the current political climate.

Distortion #4 by Nathan Guttman July 8th 2004
"Cynthia McKinney: Her father said "the Jews bought everyone," and she has never contradicted him."

Correction #4
So I think her base is secure, and I think the district is rightfully angry at Denise Majette, the Republican who won two years ago, who is bolting from the House seat and running for the Senate in Georgia, where I think she has probably a very minor chance of succeeding.

- Atlanta Regional Consortium for Higher Education
"During the 1940s and 1950s, African Americans who defied the city's tradition of residential segregation by moving into or near white communities were generally met by threats, physical confrontations, bombs, and cross burnings... There also were frequent retaliatory bombings of African American homes in formerly white communities throughout the decade.

The bombings of African American homes received little attention from the white media in the city. However, the October 1958 bombing of the Temple on Peachtree Street, the major Jewish synagogue in Atlanta, received a great deal of media coverage. It demonstrated that the same hatred and ignorance that fueled violence against African Americans had rekindled vicious anti-Semitism, and could eventually spark brutal attacks on other minorities. Occurring at this particular time, the bombing also indicated that white supremacists were retaliating against the Jewish community because the Temple’s Rabbi Jacob Rothchild publicly supported integration."

In addition, Ms. McKinney was born March 5th 1955. This was during the peak period of domestic terrorism against Blacks as well as Jews in Georgia. Both groups were targeted by domestic terrorists for having platforms that advocated human rights for all people, which rendered them natural allies. The assertion that Ms. McKinney would support anyone who believes in terrorizing anyone discounts her own history and that of the state in which she was born and raised. Team McKinney

PBS Newshour Online
GEORGIA ON HER MIND - transcript October 31, 1996

KWAME HOLMAN: Two weeks ago, McKinney’s father, Billy, a longtime state representative and adviser to her campaign, called Mitnick, who is Jewish, a racist Jew.

JOHN MITNICK: It was very hurtful, uh, to be called a racist and particularly a racist Jew, as if the word "Jew" were somehow part of the insult.

REP. CYNTHIA MC KINNEY: My father made a mistake and got too emotional, and he’s apologized for that and acknowledged that he did make a mistake.

Distortion #5
Catherine Davis, Republican opponent for Georgia 4th District
[ is] "really unfortunate that the former congresswoman from Georgia has not been able to bring herself to stand with our government, with our troops when we have an open declaration of war against the terrorists."

Correction #5
Here is the speech she gave about her views on the troops.

Cynthia McKinney on Supporting Our Troops
As I watch the increasingly tragic events unfold in Iraq, I am concerned for the health and well-being of our brave men and women in uniform. I'm not only concerned about their survival while in Iraq, but I'm also very concerned about their lives and futures once they home to their families and loved ones. Throughout my tenure in congress, I have dedicated myself to supporting our veterans, active duty troops, and their families. I still do.

SEKTION 3 - The Legacy of 
                  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We Too Should Never Forget
Ms. McKinney has been very outspoken about the role of the US government in Martin Luther King's murder. Like Martin, she has been villified for attempting to find, and speak, the truth. After years of conjecture about the US government and its policies in respect to Martin Luther King Jr., we now have the government's own documents at the tips of our fingers.

SEKTION 4 - America's Eternal War
                                 Against Itself
For All those who believe the US government isn't capable of plotting actions that would endanger US lives to achieve its own end, we strongly suggest you clearly understand what Northwoods (also referenced as Operation Mongoose) is.

Northwoods was a series of strategic plans drawn up in the early 1960's during the Kennedy administration by the Defense Department, Joint Chiefs of Staff and relevent agencies to create an international incident. The stated goal was to invade Cuba after world opinion was swayed by a number of tragic incidents, real and perceived, which would be caused by the U.S. government [based on the document] primarily within its own borders, but made to look as if it were the result of aggression by the USSR and Cuba.

The world would have been a completely different place had John F. Kennedy agreed to this plan. Instead, Kennedy fired its lead architect L. L. Lemnitzer, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.  

Welcome to the thought processes behind the US government.
