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.

McCain Hiding Behind Two Skirts

Shameful and Disgusting

Well, John, now you’re hiding behind not one, but two skirts.  For some time we have seen folksy Sarah doing the dirty work for you by inciting hatred at your KKK rallies and now your wife Cindy is joining the ranks and you are just standing in the background smiling like a fool.

JOHN, WHERE ARE YOUR COJONES?

Cindy, darling, next time you accuse Barack Obama of voting to cut off funds for your son who is serving in Iraq, why don’t you mention that your husband, just two months prior, also voted against funding the troops.  The only difference:  Barack Obama cast his vote because that particular bill did not include a timeline for troop withdrawal and your husband cast his vote because that particular bill had a timeline for troop withdrawal.  We realize that little unimportant things like facts and truth don’t matter to the McCain/Palin campaign, but let me assure you, they matter to most everybody else.

BEING AN ATTACK DOG IS SO ‘UN-FIRST-LADY-LIKE,’ CINDY!

Message to John:  Why don’t you go mano-a-mano with Barack during the final debate and show that you indeed have cojones (be it small ones), if you can bring yourself to look ‘THAT ONE’ in the eye and ask him directly why he is ‘palling around with terrorists’?  Maybe that way you can restore some of your manhood you have lost over the past few weeks.   🙂

By the way:  Is the Secret Service investigating the threats being made at the McCain/Palin KKK rallies?  Just checking.
