That's why...And they're easy to pick...
Remember folks, ultra nationalism lead to Nazi germany...
Surely you don't want that in the US ?
Frankly you should be banned from this site for gross infractions against the T&C of this site...
Very impressive. Comparing people who you disagree with to Nazis and calling for their banishment from ATS.
Thank you for providing another example of the progressive view that people should be allowed to express their opinions, so long as those opinions
agree with yours.
Back on topic, a lot of the pushing back against Obama supporters is just that -a push back against the supporters, not Obama himself. And if you
would spend a few minutes perusing the boards, you would find an incredible amount of negative posts about Hillary Clinton.
It doesn't help that Obama supporters are very weak at discussing the issues, but very strong at complaining against perceived slights against their
chosen one. A great example is this thread.
Honestly, I can never recall any whiny complaint about why all the Bush bashing or why all the Clinton bashing, or even why all the U.S. bashing. For
some reason, maybe because they've led sheltered lives, Obama supporters flip out when somebody says anything about Obama. They begin accusing
people of being racists for simply saying they wouldn't vote for Obama.
Finally, I do not accept the characterization that most of the opinions about Obama has been "bashing" of any sort. Most have been well reasoned
opinions about why people don't like Obama. Is that bashing?
