I am sick and fucking tired of ignorant people being the tone of the McCain campaign. I’m irate that John McCain and Sarah Palin started talking about Obama as though he were a terrorist. We always knew that fearmongering would be part of the GOP platform, but this? This is emotional terrorism. Yes, I said it. They are trying to terrorize our emotions and our deepest fears by lying and pointing out things that are ludicrous and threatening someone’s life. Kill him, bomb him, he’s a terrorist, an Arab, a Muslim. We do not need this bullshit in our politics. Our country is headed down the shitter and people are talking about murdering the one man who even seems to have any clue how to fix it.
Sure, John McCain took the microphone away from a woman who called Obama an Arab. Does that stop him from instilling people with doubts anyway? No. “We need to know who the real Obama is.” We DO know who the real Obama is. Who the hell are you, John? Besides, of course, a liar and a being who feeds on the fears of others.
And John McCain is PROUD of these people. In last night’s debate he said, “I’m proud of the people that come to our rallies….there have been things yelled at your rallies, Senator Obama, that I’m not happy about either”. Like what? Has anyone threatened John McCain’s life at an Obama rally? Anyone? No! John McCain has to say he’s proud of these people because they’re the only ones he has left. And heaven knows, we don’t want to scare away the racist nutjobs. After all, they get to vote too.
John McCain brought up Rep. John Lewis and his statement that McCain and Palin are “sowing the seeds of hatred”. And he’s right! Why hasn’t McCain said that Sarah Palin’s statement about Obama palling around with Bill Ayers is ridiculous slander? For someone whose Keating 5 skeletons are scarier than any supposed involvement Obama could have possibly had when he was 8 years old (the time Ayers was with Weather Underground), don’t you think you might just want to keep your mouth shut about questionable associations?
It’s all about a snowball effect. You start with the small lies: “Obama called Palin a pig”. Move to bigger lies: “Obama wants to teach sex to Kindergartners” and then it becomes “Obama pals with terrorists”. John McCain’s campaign seems to be run by the worst kind of people: lying, unethical, emotional terrorists. We are in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression and what McCain has at his rallies aren’t people concerned about this – they are people concerned about killing and bombing Barack Obama. He is a Christian, American citizen. How anyone gets away with saying such threatening and terrible things about someone who has been serving our country, has a family who needs him, and is only trying to help this country gets back on his feet is beyond me.
Barack Obama is not the terrorist, Mr. McCain. Your supporters are. Stop NOW before something happens that you can not reverse because you failed to repudiate your own VP.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Stop the hate, stop the racism, and stop praising your supporters who are encouraging violence and murder. Be the man we saw in 2000 and have some fucking conviction for what’s right, not just what you think is right for you. Because, Senator McCain, what seems to be right for you is wrong for the rest of us. So practice what you preach and put the COUNTRY FIRST!
