Union mailer calls Chris Van Hollen “savior”

Chris Van Hollen
Last night, I wrote about an Easter Sunday email from Sheila Dixon’s campaign that compared her to Jesus. The latest biblical allusion in campaign propaganda is brought to you by a union group supporting Chris Van Hollen.

Today, I have an excerpt from a mailer by the Committee for Maryland’s Progress that’s a fake newsletter full of progaganda in favor of Chris Van Hollen in the Democratic Primary for the U.S. Senate seat finally being vacated by Barbara Mikulski.

Committee for Maryland’s Progress is funded by 1199SEIU, a union group that is supporting Van Hollen.

The mail piece is full of attacks on Donna Edwards, who is running against Van Hollen, that are interspersed with praise for Van Hollen, including from someone with NARAL, a pro-abortion group.

Below is the section of the mailer that highlights praise for Van Hollen from the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. In it, the refer to him as “the savior for us” for years now.’

Chris Van Hollen isn’t a savior and Sheila Dixon won’t be resurrected (nor will she resurrect Baltimore.)

A passage from Psalm 146 seems to be applicable here:

Do not put your trust in princes, in any child of Adam, who has no power to save.

I’ve written critically of this phenomenon before, as it appears on the right at CPAC.
