McCain/Palin Rallies: A Gathering Of Racists, Fascists And Nutjobs?

So, I was watching a very interesting documentary about the history of the KKK on the History Channel the other night and then I thought I saw a continuation of it at several McCain/Palin rallies the next day.  I think you can tell a lot about a person’s character and the way he is running his campaign simply by looking at and listening to the people who are supporting him.

MCCAIN SUPPORTERS:  HATEFUL AND NEGATIVE

At an Obama rally, you find a very diverse audience of people who are cheerful, hopeful, and the atmosphere is filled with good vibes.  I have to say now, after watching a few McCain/Palin rallies over the past few days, they seem to be filled with Hate-Mongers, racists, fascists and nutjobs, and that says a lot about the character of the people attracting this mob.  Of course, hateful statements being made by supporters is nothing new for McCain/Palin.  I remember when during the primaries, answering questions at a town hall meeting, a woman got up and asked McCain ‘What are we going to do about the b**ch,’ referring to Hillary Clinton and instead of rejecting this disrespectful question, John McCain just smiled.

JOHN, THAT’S NOT VERY ‘HONORABLE’!

Now you have McCain and Palin as ‘Hate-Mongers-in-Chief,’ and it’s not a pretty picture.  From people calling Barack Obama a ‘terrorist,’ to shouting ‘treason’ and ‘kill him,’ to show casing a sheriff in full uniform in Clearwater, FL using hateful rhetoric, it certainly shows the true character of the two people on the Republican ticket for everybody to see.  And the silence of these two candidates in the face of these comments is deafening.  When watching this idiot in uniform, I was thinking back to the KKK documentary which showed clearly that the KKK could operate with impunity because they were openly supported by law enforcement.  Some of the officers were not only sympathizers but active members of the KKK.  Scary stuff!

THE KKK IS ALIVE AND WELL AND REARS ITS UGLY HEAD AT MCCAIN/PALIN RALLIES!

Another incident that happened at one of the rallies raising more than just eyebrows, was the disrespectful way reporters, who were there simply to cover the event, were treated.  Not only were they prohibited from asking Palin any questions (gee, I wonder why), but they were greeted by hostile demeanor, threats and racially charged comments (‘Sit down, boy’ – one KKK rally participant to a black media person).  This is of course a reflection of the way McCain/Palin are inciting this hate with their stump speeches and we all should soundly reject it.  I’m sitting here looking at all this, asking myself

WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?

Message to media:  Stop covering McCain/Palin events completely until you receive the respect you deserve, and access to Palin to ask her questions like ‘How does it feel to be a Hate-Monger, and how does that square with you being a ‘Christian’? ‘
