Well there you have it folks. Dissagree with Obama, and you are called a Racist.

I haven't been following Politics for very long, but Man Does this administration Top the cake with Corruption and bias.

Over the next 2 years Bush will look like Jesus compared to what Democrats and the MSM are going to pull off.

I guess the Democratic party truely is the party of intolerance.

Bush didnt give a flying F" if you protested with a poster of his face superimposed onto hitler, HELL a person Threw shoes at Bush and only got 3 years for it. If you throw a shoe at obama, you'll probally be shot dead and called a racist to boot.

Disobey a democrat and You will be hunted down by the MSM, Department of homeland secrurity, and Left wing Zealots.

I think Democrats acually want to be hated more then Bush.

Keep your ignorant swagger dems, its over for congress in 2 year, and you better damn well realise that. Obama will be a lame duck when the Republican Senate compeltely cuts him off.

Obama is already rocking lower approval ratings then bush in the first 3 months. Im sure the left has an "excuse for that" also. Racism HMM?

I don't know why it's a surprise that they called Obama protesters racist. IT's been that way since the beginning. They pretty much put it out there in the primaries that if you were not for Obama then you had to be racist. And just how many washed up celebs are we supposed to listen to like all of a sudden they have a mind? Garofalo was a joke as a stand up comedian. and she's a joke now. I mean, do the jokes about her getting her period qualify her to even have an opinion? She's being listened to and called an activist because she is not a racist that might have voted for anyone else.

Face it, if you are not an Obamaphile you are a racist redneck. I've heard it since he started hos run to sit at the bog boy table and it's going to keep going on. So if you're not used to it yet get your comfy clothes on. This ride is going to take a while. If you don't have a hood I'm sure the MSM and retarded wanna be's..I mean activists will bring you one.

I've come to believe that the left fears Libertarians. Not necessarily because of our views, but because of our ability to influence the right. In the middle of the last century, the left infiltrated the Republican party and they've been there influencing policy since. Libertarians are a threat to this stranglehold, therefore everything we do must be discredited and demonized, by any means available, including but certainly not limited to, playing the race card.

This is the problem with MSNLGBT. They really don't have anything of substance to say and when people make a point they have to call names.

Once they realized they sound dumb, they try to bring up "points", such as was done with the Tea parties.

After they got caught with their pants down, tea bagging each other, they started with the line about how Conservatives ought to worry about how much the big bad corporations of there states are avoiding taxes.

While this is true, they didn't think of this themselves, George Soros and Move had to bring this to their attention.

I hate it when people resort to name calling... thanks for pointing out that MSNLGBT does that sort of thing!

I don't think thats accurate - I think the left is worried that the GOP partisans are trying to highjack the MOVEMENT in order to elect JEB or ( )...

There are very few LEFTY political warriors here in comparison to a year ago...

the above thread is a very constructive ( for the most part ) candid discussion and I think you will find I am not BSing, because I don't BS when I am not kidding.

I don't want BUSH the third coming or Palin coming in - straight up, no bones no hidden agenda.

And I think you are also backwards on the motives... people are demonizing this because they preceive that the GOP is attempting to ride the ride and boot the captain at the end.( Libertarians = captain )

Also I am not sure what you mean about the left infiltrating the GOP???

Very interesting prospecting to have, please explain.

I hope you are not going to ascribe anything you dislike as being a left influence -
however I have a hunch... and I am not psychic... formulating my response already

Lets hear it.

msnbc and nbc is a nest of haters, Emmelt and Zucker have single handedly destroy the NBC and GE name. There is no common ground for them, either your a socialist or you must die, is pretty much how they see it. I truly believe Emmelt is a capitalist but he has lost so much money for GE that to save his own ass he needs to support socialism. We all have heard the hateful inciteful messages that Janeane Garofalo spat out on air america, why should we expect anything different from her here. I have boycotted 24 because she is on it.

All they are doing is trying to make people feel isolated, and trying to make them feel like they are the only ones hating obama. Its a trick they used during the election where reporters could not ask obama any questions period, other than pre arranged ones that he already knew.

Olbermann is alright on some things, but man is he wrong here, and they are trying to change your opinion, by just resorting to thats just racism.

Why cannot you hate america because of all the things they do wrong, like murder and torture, and the totally apathetic society that trys to tell us, that way is the best, lol.

Most here that do not like obama, hated bush too, and i too hated clinton, for the crimes america was doing during his time, like iraq and yugoslavia.

Why cannot people just hate murderers, and hate the way society tries to project them as heros. People all over this world have every right to hate murderers as we have enough of them, period.

It was done when Bush was president.The differance being a lot less people knowing about it.This is main stream media do you people expect them to change because Obama is president?You don't remember war protesters during the Bush administration were unpatriotic?That about says where the MSM is.If your a republican your a racist if your a democrat your unpatriotic.This is a government of the professional politicos,for the corporations,by the federal reserve bank.You need to get used to the fact the people are no longer included.

I really, really, want to smack that ***** up.

Im starting to think the nwo starts with huge division between all Americans, leaving them with very few resources to find the truth / fight back..

This is going to sound extreme but yes most of those people there are racist IMO. Most of them don’t even have a basic understanding of the economy or any of Obama’s policy. Yes, there were some there who were actually against paying higher taxes but many were just there to voice their hatred for Obama. The speaker pretty much embarrassed all of them.

Why weren’t there any tea parties when Bush brought a 236 billion surplus to a record deficit??

Makes you wonder

There seems to be a trend in this country as far as hiring bitter alcoholic ex-comedians like Garofalo to work as media personalities, oops, political commentators. And they wonder why people no longer listen....

I have to say, I agree with her and him 100%. Most of those individuals couldn’t tell you want the original tea party was about when it happened and where it occurred. Jeff The Blogger played the crowd so easily it was embarrassing. What makes it funnier is everything he is was 100% right

More like alcoholism. Her drinking problem is no secret. The irony is that she is dating actor Henry Rollins, who is famously anti-drug and anti-alcohol.

HEY....all of you Obama haters and right wing extremists:

show me some clips of protesters that got this much media attention under the Bush administration

illegal wiretaps..gitmo..IRAQ..AFGHANISTAN...shoving the constitution up your sphincter with K-Y.

show me 5 media representation about the hatred toward the Bush administrations and how he took your rights away from you one at a time.

show me some protesters that got to get live air on 5 diff news stations called Tea parties..they're doing anything to rid obama... U.S. is filled with right with extremists (who inherited wealth)...that is why you have such amazing success stories...and some of the most shameful embarrassing poverty stories..

I ask you... show me some protesters of the Bush administration that were aired on 5 MSM outlets...

Thank you my educated hard workers. You all seem to be very keen in your opinions..but facts just always seem to go under the radar.

Additionally... Before anyone considers even in some way justifying the actions of these Americans calling out the current president, understand that this debt was INHERITED 3 and half months ago. To turn an economy around takes YEARS, not days. And before you bash on the spending, ask yourself what not spending would do (those of you who know the at least the basics of macroeconomics).

I personally understand that Obama is attached to strings by the same people that Bush is attached to, the BANKERS. However he is a lot less tyrannical, is transparent as he could possibly be at the given time, plus he puts make up on and get dressed up nice before he anal rapes you

you gotta love it baby.

The Tea Parties were not about higher taxes, they were about wastefull government spending. I went to the Tea Party here and most of the people were angry that Congress and Obama passed a huge spending bill that they didn't even read. By the way, they were also mad at Bush for passing the TARP bill. The second theme that I heard was "All incumbents out of office in 2010."

Does that sound like a bunch-o-racists to you?

There were actually a lot of similar demonstrations during the Bush administration but they didn't get a lot of media coverage. I went to several rallies two years ago protesting the amnesty bills that both Bush and McCain supported. Did you forget about those?

Last point, there is a big difference between a 280 billion dollar deficit and a 1.3 trillion dollar deficit. It should not be too surprising that more people are upset with the larger deficit numbers.

Janeane Garafolo??? What rock did she crawl out under? MSNBC?? I think there were more people at the tea parties than MSNBC has viewers.
Talk about the bottom feeder of MSM.
Well that explains why "actror/actress?" (using those terms loosely) Janeane Garafolo was on.

Sad times and missed opportunities.

This country continually goes to the far left or right of nearly every issue now... You are either one of them, or the others.

There is no longer hope for an unbiased perspective.

Bipartisanship... what is it?

This country had been so divided into left or right that it may be beyond hope.

There is your ultimate conspiracy.

A perpetually divided people keeps open the void that true evil can one day fill.

Thank you. Keep the slaves pitted against eachother so nobody can really see the "Big Picture". It's a flawless system.
