Not every American is an idiot, but they make great news.
Im not surprised that this happened, see it on a daily basis.

Anyone saying they cant believe stuff like this, does not get out much. Just my opinion.

This video made me sick to my stomach. The amount of ignorance and hatred at this "rally" seemed more like a Klan convention than a political rally. It really is a miracle that Obama is still alive. I can't imagine what is going to happen after the election is over.


I get predictions from time to time, but lately it went away like it never really happen before. I rememember about July of 07, I remember seeing a visionn of Obama being assinated shortly after he became president. Well I believe some time after April or so, the vision went away. I figured that he will not be assinated after all..
I had similar visions before. One concern a civil war taking place some time during 06. I had this vision back in 02 but it went away sometime after 05. I don't see any Civil War taking place nor Nuclear war with anybody. I just don't see Titor's predictions taking place.

Just because you dont "understand" racism doesn't make someone who holds unpopular opinions ignorant, dumb, stupid, etc etc.


Are you seriously calling racism an "unpopular opinion"?????
I was about to lay into you but before I do, how about telling me that I misinterpreted your comment. I pray I did.

Thats all it is. Unpopular beliefs held by some.

Aside from pure emotion, do you have any factual evidence that its not?

Any studies showing people who hold racist beliefs tend to score lower on standard IQ tests?

Any factual evidence to show people with racist opinions are less productive, commit more crimes, are more inclined to hump livestock, or anything of the sort?


Lets be real here, automatically calling "racists" ignorant, rednecks, stupid, retards, etc etc without actually debating them on the facts makes you no better than them.

Racists are ignorant!!!! is nothing but a pure emotional response.

So you want to "purge" people just because they have opinions you disagree with?

Very American.....


Yup, after reading some of your other post I realized that you actually believe that racism is an "opinion." Man, did you spend the last 40- 50 years in some backwoods swamp or something. Do they still hang black people where you are from? Racism is an ignorant, immoral, backwards practice. In case you do not know its definition, I will do you the favor of clarifying it. Racism is the belief that YOUR race is SUPERIOR to all other races. How in the h#$@ can someone in today's society validate this type of thinking as an "opinion"???? This country will be a lot better off when people who think racism is an "opinion" are all dead and buried. Maybe you, Mr. "Constitutional Scholar" should try reading another great document written by our founding fathers, the Declaration of Independence. Be sure not to miss the part about all men being created EQUAL.

Racism is a FUNCTION of IGNORANCE. In other words, as you become educated about other races, you discover that your race holds no superiority over that of another race. As far as your comment about evidence of racists committing more crimes I can offer many, many examples; The systematic extermination of Native American Culture (lots of rapes and murders committed in that piece of American history), the Ku Klux Klan and its practices toward Blacks in America (again plenty of rapes, assaults, and murders there), and lets not forget the worst of the white supremacy groups, the Nazis who exterminated millions of Jews across Europe. Jezzz Man, you do not sound like a stupid person. Please, for your sake, stop saying stupid things. Racism is not an "opinion." It is a practice that God himself will damn you for if you are not careful. After all, God created us all, did he not.

i just have one question:

anybody ever consider that it's also not nice to make fun of people with low IQs? you know, the mentally handicapped, insane, mentally disturbed, emotionaly unsound, erm, clinically depressed, and otherwise malfunctioning brains?

the next person that calls another person an idiot or stupid, will be getting some kneetime from me.

oh and i have another question:

anybody ever consider that income bracket, place of birth, race, gender, religion, style of vehicle, musical preference, etc, are not legitimate areas for critique?

there's

smart, poor people.
geniuses born in the backwoods.
rocket scientists that drive pick up trucks.
inner city people who like country music.
southerners who like hip hop.
christians who like other people.
females who like men.
men who like females.

what the hell people?

Forrest Gump said, "Stupid is as stupid does"

I would like to modify that to "Stupid is as stupid does or says"

I am not one for name calling but I myself have done, and said, some pretty stupid things in my life. If someone had not pointed out my stupidity, I may still be doing, or saying, these things. The world would probably be a better place if more people were called stupid from time to time.

no excuse. i take umbrage at your comments because i match some of your criteria for idiocy. for example, i live south of the mason-dixon line. i'm white.
erm..that's about it. oh no, that's not all, i was also in a coma and came out with some limited brain damage and emotional damage.

take it back. right now. or i'm gonna pray you are richly blessed. you don't want me to do that, not after making such sweeping negative comments about me. and don't tell me you didn't because you did! that's how every person like me will view your comments. people who are suffering will see in you, someone who hates them for being born.

take it back.

Come on, be honest. Step back and take a look around and quietly be honest with yourself...."Ugly Americans"..don't you see it? Liars, Cheats, Thieves, Murderers....mean, self serving, hypocrites..spiteful...cruel..blood thirty...whore mongers..divorcees..porno addictive...religious hypocrites...come on, be honest, you know the truth and if you can't see it, maybe you should just go take a close look in the mirror.

But no, you are human and will take on just so much of the truth as you can carry and then go on to pointing the finger to the left..to the right...up, down...you are a human being, not an Animal; if you were an Animal, there might be hope for your soul. Soul...interesting, there is no escaping who and what you are, it is all written on your soul.

One thing is reassuring and proof that there is a Creator, everyone reaps what they sow.

I'm afraid it does. The only excuse is when someone has not had the opportunity to challenge their own views, and in this day and age, that is rare in the west.

Whats the big deal they both want to bomb Iran? Why support the lesser of two evils? People you really need to see this as a bigger picture and not ending at the racist borderline. Sure these people are ignorant, but some do have points. He is a socialist and he is a muslim who now declares to be a Christian, I mean come on.

(Definitely not saying Mccamnesty is any better.)

this entire thread is a travesty, i think.
it's a horrid display of racism.
racism and bigotry, unfettered and let loose like the dogs of war.

people hating people just for being born.
for having a religious viewpoint.
for driving a freakin' pick up truck.
for living somewhere other than downtown.

good freakin' grief.

this thread needs to be closed and mocked relentlessly for being a prime example of why bigotry of any kind is inhumane and wasteful of valuable resources. it certainly has used up my limited brain space. my own fault for reading this tripe!
