McCain’s ‘Obama Is An Arab’ – Lady

Gayle Quinnell, McCain supporter, volunteer and idiot

You look like a nice grandmother knitting sweaters for your grandchildren, but then I learned that you are mailing out smear letters for the McCain campaign and I saw you on national TV spewing hatred at one of McCain’s rallies in Minnesota, calling Barack an ‘Arab’ and even though McCain corrected your statement, you still called Barack a ‘Muslim Terrorist’ when interviewed after the rally.  How can a nice little old lady be so hateful?  I just have one message for you and your fellow McCain supporters who seem to have checked their brains at the door (and I’m trying to be as diplomatic as I possibly can):

MA’AM, WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, YOU ARE AN IDIOT!

Instead of just watching Fox News and listening to hateful diatribes from right-wing radio talk show hosts, why don’t you try to get information from a variety of sources?  There is absolutely no reason for anybody to be this uninformed with so many different news sources out there.  Maybe then you can start thinking for yourself and form your own opinion?  Believe me, that is actually possible.  After watching you and your fellow McCain supporters, I am just glad, and the polls seem to agree, that you belong to a dwindling breed.

As much as Gayle can claim ignorance, there’s just no excuse for the head of the Virginia GOP Jeffrey M. Frederick comparing Barack Obama to Osama Bin Laden.  Jeffrey, you ought to be ashamed of yourself!

BOTTOM LINE:

MCCAIN/PALIN CAMPAIGN IN SHORT:  

He’s definitely black;
probably Muslim;
and maybe a terrorist. — Josh Marshall,

JOHN AND SARAH, YOU CAN BE SO VERY PROUD OF YOURSELVES!

My Ugly Confrontation With A McCain Supporter

“My statement was a reminder to all Americans that toxic language can lead to destructive behavior.” — Rep. John Lewis, Veteran of the Civil Rights Movement

In light of the recent events at the McCain/Palin KKK rallies, I decided to repost one of my blog entries which in retrospect is very telling of the character of some of the people we see at these rallies.  McCain and Palin with their hateful rhetoric are bringing to the forefront a hatred and racism that is bubbling right below the surface of some people as the following incident clearly demonstrates.  By the way, the entry is from July 22, well before the VP selection, the conventions, and the events of the past few weeks, just right after we knew that it would be a McCain/Obama match-up.  Here it is, word for word:

IGNORANCE

After having come to America from Germany in 1991 and making this city my home, every once in a while I am being reminded that you run into ignorance no matter where you choose to live.  One of those times was a few weeks ago when after a traffic altercation causing me to almost hit the guy cutting right in front of me, I ended up sitting next to him at the stop light that he got caught by only a few hundred yards down the road.  Isn’t it always like that?  Anyway, don’t ask me why I even looked over to him.  I guess I heard him yelling something.  And don’t ask me why I even rolled my window down.  I couldn’t exactly understand what he was yelling, so all I said was ‘I don’t know why you are yelling at me, you were the one almost causing the accident!’

Well, naturally, he picked up on my accent and yelled over ‘Why don’t you go back to Russia?’  Here also, I don’t know why I even corrected him, but after hearing ‘Germany,’ he started this hateful barrage at me including the three words he knew about Germany, two of them being ‘Heil Hitler’ and all kinds of obscenities, telling me how glad he was that America had destroyed Germany in the war and on and on and on.  I literally was completely speechless and just looked at him thinking that this guy certainly was a walking time bomb with all this hatred.  Anyway, at that point I had reached my daily limit of being subjected to ignorance and started to let my window up and just let him know that I was glad that he is not representative of his fellow Americans.  And I thought about an incident we just had a few days prior to that where a woman shot somebody after a traffic incident.  I looked at him and wondered about the irony if his ancestors had emigrated from Germany!

I had my window almost completely up when I heard him yelling ‘John McCain, John McCain!’  And then it was clear to me that my ‘Obama’ sticker most likely was the initial cause of his hateful diatribe.  Now I just hope that he is not representative of his fellow McCain supporters!

Naturally, looking at the racism and hatred incited by McCain/Palin and expressed by their supporters over the past few weeks, the hope stated in my last sentence was a bit optimistic.  Unfortunately, we all know now that this character indeed is representative of a large portion of his fellow McCain supporters.

Bottom line:  Barack Obama brings out the best in people.  John McCain brings out the worst in people.
