The Worst GOP Candidate In History
by Srdja Trifkovic
“Conservative” Joseph DioGuardi’s “sensational” election as the GOP Senate
candidate in New York has shaken up the Republican Party, gloats the
Tropoja-based Albanian Minerals President M. Mujaj in the Wall Street Journal
Blog. “The American people have spoken,” this self-styled compatriot of ours is
telling us. “The American way of life needs to be rebalanced. Households need to
stop spending what they don’t have. Local and state governments need to slash
their budgets to live off whatever tax revenues they generate […] The American
people voted for change.”
What Mr. Mujaj does not mention is that former Congressman DioGuardi is the
founder and well-endowed president of the Albanian American Civic League, a
lobby group for the KLA-run “independent” province of “Kosova.” This is a
significant fact, crucial to the funding of his candidacy, which he curiously
does not mention on his campaign website. Even more curiously, the League’s
aacl.com site—full of information on DioGuardi’s KLA connections—has been
mysteriously dormant for weeks. There is, nevertheless, ample evidence out there
that DioGuardi and his wife have been, for years, key fundraisers and apologists
for the terrorist KLA in this country. It is unsurprising that he omits this
aspect of his career from his pitch to the voters of New York, but it is curious
that no one has called attention to the fact thus far.
As for Tropoja, it is a town in northern Albania best known not as a hub of
mining in general, or as the HQ of DioGuardi’s friend Mr. Mujaj’s Albanian
Minerals in particular, but as the gruesome site of a “clinic” known as The
Yellow House in which hundreds of Serb civilians kidnapped in Kosovo by the KLA
in 1999 were brought to be murdered for organ harvesting. As my friend Julia
Gorin wrote two and a half years ago,
For perhaps the first time in history, the mainstream media have deemed the
dismemberment of Serbs newsworthy. More accurately, they have deemed newsworthy
the dismemberment of the Serb and non-Serb victims of our friends, and almost
all living Albanians’ great heroes, the KLA … The new information is revealed in
the forthcoming book The Hunt by Carla Del Ponte, former chief prosecutor for
the Hague Tribunal. A few reports, starting with—gasp—the AP (which both
theInternational Herald Tribune and Fox News deigned to carry), Albanian
trafficking in organs of killed Kosovo Serbs investigated… Del Ponte said her
investigators had been informed that some 300 Serbs were killed for organ
trafficking.
Del Ponte—not known as a friend of the Serbs by any token—was the first to
reveal that the imprisoned Serbs were taken to a camp in Tropoja where the
younger ones were picked out, and their organs were later sold abroad. Even high
KLA members were involved in the operation of smuggling of organs, Del Ponte
explained. She attested that her investigators and UNMIK officials were made
aware that in mid-1999 the KLA moved some 300 abducted non-Albanians to
Tropoja’s “yellow house” where in one room that was used as an operating
theater, the surgeons were removing organs from the victims. The organs were
transported by air from Tirana to clinics abroad for clients and medical
institutions that paid for them. The victims left with one kidney were kept
locked, and later on killed for other organs. “Other prisoners in the barrack
knew what was to happen to them,” Del Ponte added.
The horrors of Tropoja and the KLA are light years away from DioGuardi’s New
York State audiences and his usual sales pitch … standard fiscal conservatism,
family values. No mention of the KLA anywhere, of course.
Had another Joseph, Dr. Mengele, decided to run for the U.S. Senate sixty years
ago, he too would have kept quiet about certain medical pursuits, and certain
political affiliations, similar in kind and moral depravity to DioGuardi’s. But
he did not, wisely preferring to stay in Brasil. DioGuardi’s ability to do so
today is a sad testimony on the decrepitude of the GOP and on the state of this
country’s politics.
