96. Thank you for so clearly and thoroughly summarizing the facts about that smear.
I have no clue about what motivates this attempt to establish guild by association with a website whose only connection to McKinney is that they put up her interview with a third party interviewer. It makes as much sense as claiming that every one whose video is linked on DU's political videos forum is a secret DUer. In some cases this smear is endorsed and spread by posters simply and obviously because they oppose her attempt to bring attention to the siege and occupation or otherwise ease the suffering of the Palestinian people. In other cases it is probably just the usual suspects who routinely bash any organization or individual that seems progressive or liberal. Maybe McKinney said no to an autograph request. Who knows?

None of those approving of the smear have found even one sentence by McKinney that suggests she even knows of that site, much less endorses everything or anything there.

But regardless of motives or agendas, honest people should have some respect for the facts and refrain from spreading or endorsing deceptive and demonstrably false smears.

Thank you again for the debunking.
