Unreal… Now the Far Left Is Trying to Tie Mitt Romney to El Salvador Death Squads

They will stop at nothing.
The far left is now trying to tie Mitt Rommey to El Salvador death squads.

The death squads murdered American nuns, as documented in the photo seen here.

Really, Huffington Post?… Really?

From The Huffington Post:

In 1983, Bill Bain asked Mitt Romney to launch Bain Capital, a private equity offshoot of the successful consulting firm Bain & Company. After some initial reluctance, Romney agreed. The new job came with a stipulation: Romney couldn’t raise money from any current clients, Bain said, because if the private equity venture failed, he didn’t want it taking the consulting firm down with it.

When Romney struggled to raise funds from other traditional sources, he and his partners started thinking outside the box. Bain executive Harry Strachan suggested that Romney meet with a group of Central American oligarchs who were looking for new investment vehicles as turmoil engulfed their region.

Romney was worried that the oligarchs might be tied to “illegal drug money, right-wing death squads, or left-wing terrorism,” Strachan later told a Boston Globe reporter, as quoted in the 2012 book “The Real Romney.” But, pressed for capital, Romney pushed his concerns aside and flew to Miami in mid-1984 to meet with the Salvadorans at a local bank…

The far left media organization Democracy Now also jumped on the outrageous allegations.
Via Bad Blue:

Republican candidate Mitt Romney continues to face scrutiny over his record at the private equity firm, Bain Capital. The latest controversy to surround Bain concerns how Romney helped found the company with investments from Central American elites linked to death squads in El Salvador. After initially struggling to find investors, Romney traveled to Miami in 1983 to win pledges of $9 million, 40 percent of Bain’s start-up money. Some investors had extensive ties to the death squads responsible for the vast majority of the tens of thousands of deaths in El Salvador during the 1980s. The investors include the Salaverria family, whom the former U.S. ambassador to El Salvador, Robert White, has previously accused of directly funding the Salvadoran paramilitaries. In his memoir, former Bain executive Harry Strachan writes that Romney pushed aside his own misgivings about the investors to accept their backing. Strachan writes: “These Latin American friends have loyally rolled over investments in succeeding funds, actively participated in Bain Capital’s May investor meetings, and are still today one of the largest investor groups in Bain Capital.”

Really, can they go any lower?…
And, when will these allegations make it into an Obama Campaign ad?

    I think they have a photo of Mitt with various barnyard animals. I’m told that the photos are not photo-shopped. That’s good enough for the media .

  • Granny

    Can they go any lower? Oh just wait – next week his father will be the secret son of Stalin or something.

    I have NEVER seen a campaign this dirty.

    Does ANYBODY really think that if there was the slightest grain of truth in this that Mitt’s political enemies in MA wouldn’t have made hay with this long, LONG ago?

  • Tim in Cali

    If this is all these idiots have,is one outrageous lie after another..

    Their internal polling must show them getting slaughtered..

    If Obama was up by 10 pts.,these juvenile tactics wouldn’t be happening

    Obama is a cornered animal…and he’s very scared..

    That makes him dangerous ..he’s gonna go scorched earth

  • Militant conservative

    Yet the Obama regime sold

    Guns to criminals and is

    directly responsible for

    Mexican and American deaths.

    Accuse your opponent of that

    Which you do.

    Powder is dry

    “The investors include the Salaverria family, whom the former U.S. ambassador to El Salvador, Robert White, has previously accused of directly funding the Salvadoran paramilitaries.”

    So now we condemn entire families for crimes based on accusations and not solid proof or, heaven forbid, some sort of trial?

    And as the left wrings its hands in terror and wails in shocked outrage, we are told to ignore Obama’s association with American terrorists, islamic radicals and terrorists, gangsters, corruptocrats and left-wing hate groups.

    Gotta love the double standard!!

    I read that yesterday and nearly died laughing

  • StrangernFiction

    I wouldn’t get too worked up over this folks, Mitt isn’t. He knows his fellow statists are doing what they have to do.

  • crackermike

    Obvious felonies committed by Obama campaign officials. Nothing will be pursued because Holder and Obama are gangsters. This is getting more Soviet all the time.

  • Sasja

    As I understand things, this Stachan guy left Bain in 1998 and started his own private equity firm, Mesoamerica, which does business exclusively in Central and South America. So I would conclude he is really referring to himself. I wonder if there are any government investigations into this guy’s dealings and this is a way for him to make them go away?

    Romney has been in the political arena for quite a few years. Why is this coming up now?

    A load of crock, it is.

  • Terry Gain

    As a Romney supporter I say the dirtier the Obama campaign the better. Remind me again how Obama purchased that house he owns in Chicago.

  • Sasja

    Correction. Stachan is a Managing Partner in Mesoamerica and a Founding Partner in Mesoamerica Investments. He is still associated with Bain, on a part-time basis.

    Somehow this will lead back to Kevin Bacon…….I just know it will.

  • Ace

    They know what’s coming…




  • Multitude

    I don’t think they want to touch the Central America “rail” per enabling thugs, drug lords and other violent entities. Someone needs to talk with Obama and Holder regarding the implications of opening these cans of worms…

  • Ace

    They’re throwing out this stuff that no one believes,
    not even MSNBC believes this stuff,
    In an attempt to pre-paint the Fast and Furious ad bombs as crazy too.

  • P. Aaron

    Planned Parenthood is a death squad.

  • Mary

    There are no limits to how low they can go. They will not give up the White House or any seat of power. We are in a death spiral. Wake the hell up people.
