Joe ‘You Lie’ Wilson and ‘The Million MORON March’

I don’t know what you did the weekend of September 12th–play ball with your kids in the park, went to a party, to church, or participated in  ‘The Million MORON March’  assembling in our nation’s Capitol.

Well–to be correct, it was more like a 50,000-70,000 march.  MORONS, nevertheless.

It was indeed a sight to see!  A collection of anything and everything, the nutjob wing of the Republican Party has to offer these days:

*Anti-Government Zealots
*Loony Teabaggers
*Nutty Birthers
*Anti-Health Care Reform Crazies
*General Racists and Nutjobs

Everybody should have been impressed by the diversity of the group.  It clearly represented a cross section of the big melting pot we call America.  There were three very distinct groups clearly visible:

White people
Whiter people
Old white people

As for the motivation?  We certainly can not look into somebody’s head and heart. A brief look at the signs at the rally, however, revealed a lot about people’s motives.

What kind of insensitive jerk do you have to be, to carry this sign, just weeks after Ted Kennedy’s death?

BURY
OBAMACARE
WITH KENNEDY

Among the many racist signs, targeting President Obama, here is a notable mention of a few:

He was compared to Adolf Hitler, Osama Bin Laden, Satan, a Witch Doctor…

One sign especially drew attention:

WE  COME  UNARMED…
THIS  TIME…

Of course, that was not true for some previous events, when President Obama was welcomed by people walking around sporting their guns.

I’m waiting for responsible Republican leaders to speak out against this vitriol before some crazy follows up on these threats.  Then again…  There are no responsible Republican leaders right now.

Nothing could point out better the idiocy of some of the claims, than a complaint filed by rally organizers.  A complaint with the government-funded D.C. public transportation system, for not being able to more effectively handle the incoming protesters, while a lot of them were protesting government spending!  YOU  CAN’T MAKE  IT  UP !!!  One of the speakers at the rally, a Republican congressman, even voted against increasing funding for the public transportation system!  🙂

What was the word again?  Ah…  IDIOTS !!!

As for Joe  ‘You Lie’  Wilson…  What do you expect from somebody who led a fight less than ten years ago to fly the Confederate flag over South Carolina’s Capitol building, and held membership in a group called  ‘Sons of the Confederate Veterans?’

Bottom Line:  A certain segment of this society just can’t believe a black man is president and will never accept it.

All we can do–the vast, sane majority of this country–is walk right past them and their craziness, and move this country forward.  And we will !!!   🙂
