Racist Morons Boo John McCain in Lakeville

John McCain tries to do the right thing and set some people straight about Barak Obama:

1. Barak Obama is not a terrorist, and does not "consort with terrorists." (If these dipshits from Lakeville think Ayres is a terrorist, call the FBI! Come on, people, think! It won't hurt for long.)

2. Barak Obama is not a Arab. He is not a Muslim.



Incidentally, most Arabs in America are Christians, not Muslims. (And a fair number of them are atheists.) And one can simultaneously be an Arab and a "decent human being," their invention of algebra notwitstanding. I wish McCain could have brought that out as well, but he was dealing with a barely sentient ding-dong in a fright wig.

I have sincere respect for John McCain's love for this country and his wartime experiences (but he's not getting my vote). I doubt that all the members of this audience do. They're not voting for John McCain - they're voting against an e-mail hoax that got bundled, like toxic derivatives, into this campaign.

Regarding this recent, shameful confirmation of every cornfed yokel stereotype of Minnesota so much of us have worked to counter, all I can say is: Don't blame me! I live in the Twin Cities!

John McCain pandered to the right wing - and he got what he asked for.

UPDATED: Pastor giving invocation before McCain event proclaims: If Obama wins, God's reputation will suffer. Religion is a fucking joke.

Shimmies to Dispatches.

SECOND UPDATE: Then, on the left there's the walking-comatose Whoopi Goldberg, who in her ding-dong universe is worried about the prospect of "slavery" under a McCain presidency:



Right. Way to forget the Emacipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment, Whoopi. I'd better not see you at any Juneteenth celebrations if you cannot remember that neither of those were Supreme Court decisions.

(Whoopi Goldberg should have no fear of being a slave, anyway. A slave is supposed to actually accomplish things. Who would want her?)

What really pisses me off about this is that it's really just a bunch of stupid theatrics. None of these people really (with the probable exception of the fright wig) believes this shit! If anybody really thought that a terrorist was running for President, ALL HELL WOULD BREAK LOOSE! People would be crying at these town meetings; they'd stock up on weapons - in short, they'd act like the Rapture is coming. But no, they just whine "I'm scared to bring up my child with Obama as President" because it's drama. They enjoy the "terrorism/Muslim/Arab/Africa" thing. It's fun for them.

People who are seriously frightened don't live life as usual while sending e-mail hoaxes around like they're passing notes in Study Hall - they riot! They don't go to work! They stock up on food! They flee the country! They get specific about what they think this hideous person is going to do to them, instead of engaging in water cooler gossip. They don't snivel like this is Clinton's reign all over again (geez, all that man could do for despotism was "burn" a blue dress with a cigar).

"their invention of algebra notwitstanding"

Good one!

Excellent point about if they're really scared, why are they living life as usual.

I'm trying to make my way through the Atheist Blogroll and picking out the *new* ones.

So, Howdy!

I like your point about McCain missing the opportunity to point out that "Arab" and "decent citizen" are not mutually exclusive.

Also, Barack is spelled with a "ck" - just for future reference.

Thanks!

Whoopi is half right, you know. While it is true that the white trash racist Sarahpoleon would like to put them dark types all back in chains, this wouldn't be enough for Johnny's corporate owners. They want us ALL in chains.

Oh, sorry, I knew someone named Barak. (Nelson, Nelsen...)

Welcome, Candace, and for the record I loved algebra!

Jollyroger, Whoopi wasn't making that subtle a case. I agree with you, but she was talking about (as far as I can make out) how McCain nominations to the Supreme Court would make slavery legal again. That wouldn't happen, whereas other undesireable things would - she could talk about them, but she's just an attention-whore. Any time she wants to act* like her tongue is connected to a brain, she can.

*Haven't seen her do that yet, BTW.
