About those memorial T-Shirts

Adding to the political rally atmosphere instead of
memorial mood for the victims of the Tucson tragedy by a deranged assassin, were
the t-shirts handed out to participants as they entered the University of
Arizona’s arena.

The apparel didn’t focus on the dead/injured nor were
they the idea of the University of Arizona administration but instead were
emblazoned with a President Barack Obama (D) campaign theme, “Together We
Thrive.” And so it should come as no surprise that they were distributed
by…Obama’s own Organzing for America, reports Judi McLeod of the Canada Free Press.

The “Together We Thrive” T-shirts that starred at Wednesday’s
Arizona `Memorial’ originated from Organizing for America (here), a sad fact
unearthed by The Drumbeat of Liberty and the Preservation of Freedom editor and
Canada Free Press (CFP) columnist Robert Rohlfing.

the
mainstream media reported that the “Together We Thrive: Tucson & America”
T-shirt given to mourners as they entered McKate Center was the idea of
University of Arizona brass, not the Obama administration.
Yet the “Together We Thrive” slogan dates back to a post to Obama’s own
Organizing for America in a Feb. 11, 2008 post by self-described “globalist”
John Berry IV.
More than passing strange that the Obama campaign message of civility was the
same on Feb. 11, 2008 as it was in his Wednesday Memorial speech, and the same
one, too carried by the mainstream media in coverage of the
Memorial.

And for those in attendance

If you were a mourner who took home a “Together We Thrive” T-shirt have a
look at the bottom of your shirt. “Rocking America and Rocking the Vote” is a
common theme of the DNC, and it’s right there on your Memorial T-shirt
memento.

No mention if there was also a tag on the t-shirt reading Made In China.
