Hateful radio invective against Obama

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned the hateful invective against Obama that I noticed on the radio, and considered that it might be racism. An article in the Christian Science Monitor echoes that thought: http://www.csmonitor.com/2009/0611/p02s07-ussc.html.

  • Sam-There are clips from every major news source where you yoselruf can listen to McCain/Palin supporters yelling kill him! , Treason! , Terrorist! and my personal favorite, Off with his head! .The GOP themselves have addressed this hate though after a week or so of condoning the bullshit, to hear them suddenly condemning it is a little disingenuous.Why would McCain address the hatred, admit that he’s witnessed it at his rallies, and condemn it, if it never happened?This seems to be McCain’s new campaign tactic- initially, they were all about inciting hatred I guess the hate got a little out of hand, because it backfired, and they slipped even further in the polls behind Obama. Next, they decided to condemn the hatred but that didn’t work either- McCain got booed at recent rallies when he tried to speak out publicly against the death threats and fear-mongering death threats and hatred that he himself, and his running mate cultivated and initially encouraged.When that failed- they decided to flip the script again and pretend it does’t exist- never happened.The moderator at the debate is the one who brought these hate-filled comments up- not Obama. He was merely asked, by the moderator, what his thoughts were and he responded appropriately.The Republicans have a long history (even going back to when they were the dixie-crats) of inciting hatred and violence against minorities.Then they want to wonder why most minorities wouldn’t come near their party with a 10-foot pole.Now, in a day in age when their feet are being held to the fire, they want to act like they don’t know what the fuck people are talking about.They started the shit, let them suffer the consequences for it.Anyone who condones it, or pretends as if it didn’t really happen is as bad as the people who perpetrated it.

  • First of all I would like to say terrific blog!

    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas
    out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
    Thank you!
