Candidate or Stalking Horse?

Wednesday night Republican Scherie Murray appeared on Hannity’s Fox show. He heralded her as the great new hope to dethrone AOC from her Congressional seat.

She is attractive, black Jamaican and is getting a lot of publicity.

However, there was something about her that just didn’t click. Hannity overtalked her and didn’t give her much time to explain her positions. That’s nothing new. As much as Hannity tried, she never really aligned herself with President Trump’s viewpoints. She came off as enthusiastic a Republican as Jeff Flake or Justin Amash. Murray was lukewarm and it just didn’t seem sincere.

Then I ran across this article at the Conservative Treehouse:

The launch of a “republican” political challenger in NY-14 to challenge Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Sherie Murray, follows a very familiar political ploy…. A fake candidate intended to protect AOC in 2020. In June of 2018 Scherie Murray was an avid AOC supporter.

In the last 36 hours you may have seen “republican” candidate Scherie Murray promoted, seemingly out of nowhere, by a variety of media platforms (social media and traditional). However, when there is an obviously coordinated effort to push a rapid high visibility roll-out; and that effort is for a singular congressional district; it is always worth doing some background research.

BEWARE – Having watched this type of political scheme for several years; and accepting people for what they do, not what they claim to be; in my opinion Murray is likely in place to protect AOC in the 2020 race. This perspective is bolstered by how the launch/roll-out was also timed and scheduled by Fox News.

Tick-Tock Hannity is a favorite political deployment tool of the Murdoch interests. [It’s not cynicism, it’s an objective, albeit annoying-to-admit, aspect.] Hannity has strong support from viewers who are republican, conservative and politically engaged. If you want to elevate a faux candidate, and shield yourself in the process, Hannity is the place to go.

Remember, these interviews are pre-scheduled. Fox producers didn’t stumble upon Scherie Murray on the first day of her campaign launch and sign her up for an interview less than twelve hours later. This was a structured, pre-planned, coordinated effort.
Is it possible that Scherie Murray was a strong activist supporter of President Obama and candidate AOC in the primary of 2018 [key note: ‘the primary‘] and then suddenly had a change of heart in 2019 after seeing AOC’s political activism in action?….

Possible, yes.

Probable, no.

A person who is engaged in the outcome of a political primary is an engaged political person. Ms. Murray likely knew exactly what AOC was about (democrat-socialism) when she was congratulating her and looking forward to what AOC would deliver.

In addition to noting how Murray is not responding to any inquiry about her prior political support and ideology…. well, just, trust your gut instinct.

No further comment needed. Moving on…

Clearly this person should be checked out before anyone sends her a check. We’ll see in the coming year just how strongly her Republican views are expressed.
