Strange that the very people that promote terror and murder will never accept responsibility for their words. Of course, these promoters of terror and murder would never commit a direct act themselves and are very aware that there are crazy people in the world that will do their dirty work.
Just how would the media react if the head of the DNC defended a song titled “Bush the Idiot Cracker”? Sounds like a racist title to me. Yet, Tennessee Republican Chip Saltzman defends the RNC sending out a CD to its members that include a song titled “Barack the Magic Negro” among several other songs. Saltzman seems to think that members will recognize this as satire.
“I think most people recognize political satire when they see it,” Tennessee Republican Chip Saltsman told CNN. “I think RNC members understand that.”
The song, set to the tune of “Puff the Magic Dragon,” was first played on conservative political commentator Rush Limbaugh’s radio show in 2007.
Its title was drawn from a Los Angeles Times column that suggested President-elect Barack Obama appealed to those who feel guilty about the nation’s history of mistreatment of African-Americans. Saltsman said the song, penned by his longtime friend Paul Shanklin, should be easily recognized as satire directed at the Times.
The CD sent to RNC members, first reported by The Hill on Friday, is titled “We Hate the USA” and also includes songs referencing former presidential candidate John Edwards and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, among other targets.
According to The Hill, other song titles, some of which were in bold font, were: “John Edwards’ Poverty Tour,” “Wright place, wrong pastor,” “Love Client #9,” “Ivory and Ebony” and “The Star Spanglish Banner.”
Saltzman was once the national campaign manager for Mike Huckabee and he once held a position under the “cat killer”, former Senator Bill Frist.
This CD demonstrates the blatant racism and elitism of the Republican Party. It would be interesting to get a reaction from Colin Powell or Condolleza Rice on this. If the Repubicans want to keep marginalizing themselves, they should send this out to all the media. I mean, why hold back, if this is just ‘satire’?
This time the threats were made by the McCain-Palin supporters in Miami, FL. Two men wearing Obama shirts and carrying Obama signs were surrounded by angry McCain-Palin supporters and one of the men had his life threatened. Five thirty eight has the complete details. This is “brown shirt” behavior. Seems like the McCain-Palin supporters want to dismantle part of the Constitution by taking away Obama supporters freedom of speech. This is how the Nazis started in Germany. First, Germans lost their freedom of speech, then Hitler blamed the Jews, then the blacks, then the gays and then anyone that was not German for Germany’s economic problems. The Nazis built internment camps and approved of torture and killed anyone that disagreed with them. Now I’m not saying that McCain and Palin are promoting Fascism. Their supporters certainly appear to be fans of Fascism.
This is a dark time in our nation. We must come together or else our nation will perish.
Dobson’s “Focus on the Family” group is joyful over John McCain’s choice for vice president, Sarah Palin. She is their dream come true.
Recently, a flyer was sent to Evangelicals that stated that if Barack Obama is elected president, then Armageddon would happen. What the flyer neglects to tell these Evangelicals is that Sarah Palin practices a religion that believes in the “End Times” and that she is hoping for the “Rapture” to happen in her lifetime. Her church in Wasilla, AK, teaches its followers to prepare for the final coming of Jesus and that Alaska is where they need to be for the Rapture. It’s coming soon, if they can help it.
Her minister says that she approaches people with respect… well… she certainly doesn’t show respect when she refuses to admonish hate speech at her rallies.
I don’t believe that Sarah Palin’s religious beliefs reflect those of most Christians. You see, Sarah Palin preaches hate as evidenced by her support of hate speech at her rallies. She smiles when someone in the crowd shouts “kill him” or “terrorist”. A true follower of Jesus Christ would have responded like Barack Obama did when people booed at the mention of John McCain’s name. Obama shook his head and said to the crowd, “Now we don’t need any of that here.” Sarah Palin preaches divisiveness by stating that there are only certain Americans that are proAmerica. Barack Obama speaks of unity by stating that we are all Americans and we all love our country.
Jesus brought us the Gospel of Love and taught us that we are all equal in the eyes of God and that we are all brothers and sisters. Real Christians don’t spread hate and prejudice. Listen to this video posted earlier today. Jesus never told his followers to kill someone nor did he approve of killing. Jesus said, “turn the other cheek” which is something that Barack Obama does all the time. No candidate has received so many hate filled threats as Barack Obama and yet he brushes this hatred off. He follows his Christian faith, something that all these racists and haters should learn to do.
I’m not afraid of having Barack Obama as our next President and Joe Biden as our next Vice President. What truly frightens me is “more wars, less jobs” John McCain as President and one 72 year old heartbeat away, “end times” Sarah Palin waiting in the wings.

You can always tell the difference between a Republican and a Democrat. The Republican is the one with the hate speech and the Democrat is the one with the hope speech. It almost looks like more Obama supporters at the rally than McCain supporters. These rally goers are shackled by fear and that is why they latched onto the hate filled lies about Obama. They have so little in their lives and this fear and hatred makes them feel alive. The one woman said “It’s my country, too.” Well, I have news for her. It’s my country, too, and we have had 8 years of her country and just look at the f**kin mess her president created. Wars that we cannot afford and a destroyed economy. McCain will not help these “guns and Jesus” people pay for their health insurance nor will he help them get jobs that pay a living wage. Instead, McCain will tax their health insurance and continue to support policies that send good paying jobs oversears. It really is sad for these people. This is what happens when people don’t receive a proper education. They feed their ignorance with hate and violence.
My choice? I choose HOPE over HATE.
Learn the truth about Barack Obama’s faith at Matthew 25.

This is worst than Putin grinning at Palin from the shores of Russia because there are terrorist threats happening right here in this country. It is the McCain campaign having Americans viciously attacking other Americans. Jackbauer8393 has the latest on the robo calls in western Pennsylvania. This racism is ugly and has no place in this nation.
What is with Sarah Palin’s latest talks? She is happy to be with “proAmericans” in small towns. What does that make all the other Americans that live in urban and suburban areas? We are pro “what????” in Palin’s mind? She has no room to talk about proAmerica because her husband Todd was a member of an anti-America group, the Alaska Independence Party.
For the last 8 years, the politics of this nation has been neighbor against neighbor, yelling at each other over the fence. Now we have Sarah Palin pitting Americans against Americans. This nation is in an economic crisis that is SO very dangerous that the US economy is teetering on the edge of a precipice and could easily fall over the edge into oblivion. If we want to survive as a nation and regrow our economy, ALL Americans must work together. We cannot continue with the politics of divisiveness and expect our economy to recover. The McCain/Palin campaign is stoking the fires of hatred among it’s supporters. This hatred is so putrid that the non-supporters of McCain/Palin will never join them and our nation will continue with 4 more years of divisive politics without economic growth.
The Obama/Biden campaign tells us that we are ALL Americans. There are no Red States. There are no Blue States. There are no proAmerica small towns and antiAmerica cities and suburbs. We are all proAmerica and if the McCain/Palin campaign doesn’t want to consider us ALL proAmerica, then they don’t deserve our vote because the President of the United States governs ALL Americans and not just the small number of people that Sarah Palin describes.
A HOUSE DIVIDED AGAINST ITSELF CANNOT STAND. (Matthew 12:25)
Get your popcorn ready on election night… Again I will insist that an Obama win is now almost certain… Up to 95% according to the models I use. The question is becoming how big will this win be ??? I mentioned in my last Full Electoral College Breakdown how a landslide win (375+ EC votes) was possible, what if I told you that states that many have written off got Obama to that mark ??? After the primaries I had indicated due to high African American turnout that I though states in the southeast were in play for Obama, particularly MS and GA with the Bob Barr effect perhaps much more the reason in GA. I had gotten away from that idea after the “Palin bounce” but recent polling and a new study about the Bradley effect is making me re-think that these are indeed Safe McCain states. I’ll get to that study in a second but first lets start with some numbers… We’ll begin in Mississippi…
Polls of this state have been sparse due to the fact its a safe Republican state…. In fact since 9/1 there have only been 3 polls done here, one by ARG who’s accuracy I question… on 9/9 Research 2000 did a poll indicating a +12 McCain win. This was at the height of the Palin bounce for the red team… But by 9/30 the last poll done in MS the VERY Republican tilted Rasmussen had MS in the McCain column at +8.
Since that time there has been no more polling in MS and the more trusted polls like Survery USA haven’t been there at all.
My thoughts on MS at the end of the primary were that with a 35% voting public that is African American that in theory Obama would need to only get 20% of the white vote to win this state. Now comes the kicker… a recent study on the Bradley effect shows that in some parts of the country there is a reverse Bradley effect…
The Bradley effect–a black politician doing well in the polls but badly in the actual election–has been much discussed but there is little data on how it would work this year. Now a team of researchers from the University of Washington has analyzed the data from the 32 Democratic primaries this year and come to a surprising conclusion. The effect existed in California, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island, but a reverse effect existed in 12 other states, largely in the Southeast. Obama did better in the elections there than in the polls leading up to them. Researchers speculate that some people may tend to give pollsters the “socially correct” answer and in the Southeast, supporting the white person is socially correct.
Hmmm is the only thought that comes to mind on this issue… now on to Georgia…
Where along with a high African American turnout likely also come these to “B” words… “Bob Barr”
This state has been polled more and by other companies first I’ll start with Survery USA 9/15 poll showed McCain up +16, but by 9/29 that lead had been cut in half by Survery USA to +8 most polls this month have been in the McCain +7-+8 range with an error % of 5 %… add in Bob Barr stealing votes from McCain especially if he alienates more true conservatives and this possible reverse Bradley effect and Election Night could be very interesting indeed. On 10/9 there was a McCain plus 3 poll for GA as well.
It’s difficult for me to believe that these hate mongers are really Americans. And this is exactly what Sarah Palin and John McCain support; lies and hate.
Pass this video on…
Pssst… make this video viral. This man needs to be nominated as “Worst Persons” by Keith Olberman. You betcha.
I received the below message in an email. I removed the names for their protection. One never knows when a racist will raise its head and strike.
I was at Pepperoncini on September 26th and witness something very similar. A black gentelman in his possibly later 40’s early 50’s walked in wearing an Obama hat. One of the owners (not Paulie the heavier one) yelled at him to take the hat off. He followed him to the area where the bathrooms were, and then the Obama supporter left. A patron of the bar (who was caucasian) went outside ( I think to give support to the guy who left), and he came back in and talked to the owner. The next thing I know people were looking out of the windows. Apparently the owner told that guy to get out, and followed him outside, and was fighting him in the middle of Elm Street.
It was a very uncomfortable situation and I haven’t been back since.

This story you are about to read is the TRUTH!! The Whole Truth!!!! So help me GOD. The incident occurred on Saturday September 12th 2008 around 12:45am. I entered the restaurant/bar to obtain a pack of cigarettes. I went to the bar and asked the bartender for TEN Ones for a Ten dollar bill. The bar area was packed. Every table was filled. It is important that you know what my dress attire for that night was. I was wearing hospital scrubs, Rockport shoes, a jogging jacket (due to the rain) and an OBAMA hat. While waiting for my change a patron (who I later came to find out was one of the owners of the restaurants) blurted out LOUDLY, ” Take that Hat off!! You can’t wear that OBAMA hat in HERE!!!”
I looked up to where the voice came from and responded back. “Yeah, Right.” After receiving my change from the bartender I proceed around the bar to the vending machine to purchase my cigarettes and leave. Unbeknownst to me, the patron that spoke out previously demanded in a stern voice that I removed my hat. Than he continued to blatantly voice political epithets at me about OBAMA so loud that a patron at the one of the tables near the cigarette machine advised me not to pay any attention to the rude comments. Even the off duty bartender who walked by me on his way to the men’s room told me to ignore the comments. I finally reached the vending area to purchase my cigarettes but to my surprise that patron was right behind me and forcible tried to remove my OBAMA hat with swipes of his hands. I than made a comment to him that we live in a democracy. To that comment the patron pushed me back and said, ” GET THE FUCK OUT!” I stopped in my steps and said, ” Please don’t touch me again.” He than pushed me again and said. ” I pay the FUCKIN BILLS in this place NIGGER! So get out!” He than followed me to the exit step for step and than shoved me out of the door and said, “GET OUT NIGGER!!!! And don’t come back!” After I was out of the restaurant he locked the door behind me.
I was so livid at the events that happened that I went to one of the neighbor’s house (next to restaurant) to phone the police. Surprisingly the police never came to the restaurant after receiving my call.
The MOST devastating part of this incident is that I WAS a REGULAR patron of this establishment. I was well liked by the bartenders, bar maids and kitchen personnel. I have spent a lot of money and referred numerous friends, and family to the restaurants for drinks and food.
I just wanted to write about my experience at PEPPERONCINI to let people know about it and hope NO ONE GOES THROUGH THIS.
PASS THIS STORY ON…..
Take notice… avoid the PEPPERONCINI Restaurant (72 Poplar St Conshohocken, PA 19428)in a suburb of Philadelphia. The owner is a racist and doesn’t deserve our money.
