BOHEMIA, NY, Feb 16 – Dan Weber, president of the conservative Association of Mature American Citizens [www.amac.us], accuses AARP of “betraying its membership.”
AARP claims it represents the interests of all older Americans and that it is “politically neutral” in order to entice a bigger membership, he says. “In reality, AARP has always harbored a prejudice for liberal causes. It has tried to keep its intentions under wraps all these years because there were big bucks at stake.”
But, Weber says, its bias was exposed and the AARP is finally out of the closet in a recent interview with former President George W. Bush when the editor of the AARP magazine made a blatant attempt to ambush Mr. Bush, accusing the Republican Party of “obstructionism” and “extremism.”
“Mr. Bush refused to take the bait and offered a positive response to a very negative point of view. But, in the meantime, the AARP got its liberal message across, further promoting a transparent leftist agenda,” Weber concludes.
“In contrast, AMAC has never shied away from its responsibility to deal with facts and not opinionated hyperbole. Indeed, we have a conservative outlook because our members have a conservative outlook, but we take to task political positions that contradict the espoused views of our membership, whether they come from Republicans or Democrats.”
