Inciting Hate and Fear…

or Desperate Actions from a Sinking Campaign?

Well I’ve been watching Sarah Palin try to rally the Republican base.  I’m pretty sure that’s why John McCain picked her in the first place.  It wasn’t because she’s a seasoned thoughtful leader.  If that had been the goal I can think of three Republican women that would’ve been picked:  Elizabeth Dole, Kay Baily Hutchinson, or even Christine Todd Whitman…I’m sure there are many more.  Atleast I hope the Republican party has better women than Sarah Palin.

What I’ve watched with interest is this woman (I’m not sure we really want to claim her but I guess we have to) incite a campaign based on fear and hate.  Why?  Is she unable to motivate people with her leadership ideas and style?  She can’t seem to answer questions.  She doesn’t appear to read.  I do know she’s from Alaska…I wonder if she’s aware there are 49 other states in this union…but whatever…  We also know she knows how to abuse power and twist the truth.

Is John McCain too old, too crazy, and too tired to do the same?  Or has he been hijacked by a insidious attack dog?  Why has the campaign become so focused on in-sighting the crazies?  Where are the truly moderate Republicans?  Are they disgusted? 

I do not believe Congressman Lewis went to far.  I think the time is now to just say what’s been hinted at by the Vice Presidential Candidate herself.  You don’t look like “us” and your name is a little bit “suspicious”.  So we’ll wage a campaign that makes Americans wonder if you are “American enough” for them!

Now McCain is claiming Lewis has gone too far.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  You start it, and you can’t seem to finish it.  Shame Shame John McSame, we know your name and your game.  I for one am not buying it, not even for a nano second.

I’m with you. Unfortunately there are so many bigoted, stupid people that buy into her crap. The Hate Talk Express has an audience.

All the more reason:

Obama for President.

Wait, so simply being a Republican makes you a bigoted and hateful? Being a Republican in 2008 makes you a party to the Southern Strategy, even though the RNC has long since officially apologized for this hateful blunder?

When Congressman Lewis says things like: “George Wallace never threw a bomb. He never fired a gun, but he created the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans who were simply trying to exercise their constitutional rights,” said Lewis, who is black. “Because of this atmosphere of hate, four little girls were killed on Sunday morning when a church was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama,” he only further marginalizes the modern civil rights movement as a stranglehold of extreme interests, shakedown artists, and spreaders of hate and bitterness.

That said, clearly there are elements of those who associate themselves with the right wing who are ignorant, hateful, and equally bitter. But this, or the lunatic rantings of Congressman Lewis are no reason to dirty either candidate for the extremists in either of their parties. The hate in our past needs to be relegated to the dustbin of history.

Please help stop the hate. Sign the petition to end incitement to violence by McCain/Palin.

First of all I think you need go back, read the article, read what I wrote, and reread the comment left. No where does it say all Republicans are biggoted/racist, or anything of the sort. What it does say is John McCain and Sarah Palin have been stiring this up, and they need to be careful. Now to be fair, Senatory McCain has begun to try to tone some of this down. But – Sarah Palin chuckles as some of this is done.

On the way to VCU to see Clinton last night we say a suburban that said McCain not Hussein. Every time McCain or Palin are introduced the speaker refers to Barack Hussein Obama. Palin said “He palls around with terrorists.” When a McCain supported charged Obama was an Arab, he said “No, no. He’s a decent guy.” What does that mean? Arabs aren’t decent? So it is a very fine line these two are walking. I think they need to be careful.
