Thanks, Karlhungis, for posting that. It makes me sick, too. There's a level of hatred and anger in that video and the recent McCain/Palin events
that I haven't seen before. I hope nothing comes of it. It seems that McCain, anyway, has gotten the message. Palin has switched her message from
Obama being a terrorist" to him being a baby-killer, though. Seems like she's riding a series of "hatred waves" to the end of the campaign... Who
knows what will come next?
And yes, there's a big difference between booing and jeering and calling someone a terrorist, an Arab and saying to go back to Africa (which we've
seen McCain fans say about Obama). For the last 7 years, we in the US have been infused with the fear and loathing of this thing called "terrorist".
Especially "Arab terrorist". It's been repeatedly drummed into our minds and hearts to muster up the most vile hatred and anger for the idea of
"terrorism". And McCain and Palin have successfully attached that idea to Obama. Many McCain/Palin fans are ignorant enough to really believe Obama
is a terrorist. So, now, there are some whacked-out, frenzied, no-brain people with guns, thinking Obama is a terrorist. Think about that. Nice plan,

Just because you dont "understand" racism doesn't make someone who holds unpopular opinions ignorant, dumb, stupid, etc etc.
I also have to agree with Constitutional Scholar to some extent. While I do think racism is born of ignorance, I don't think all racist people are
dumb or stupid. Some very intelligent, well-educated people are racist. But I do think it's out of ignorance and fear.

They remind me of This clip.
My husband and I were saying that for days after that show!
do you have any source for your information about the Code Pink person or that the "terrorist" cry was about Ayers or that the
monkey man is an Obama supporter? Or is this just what you tell yourself? Try this on for size:
It is thought that that the 2 who threw the Molotov cocktail were actually McCain supporters trying to make Obama look bad...
See what I mean? Without a source, it comes across as pretty lame.
