|Back in Black - Angry Outbursts|
Lots of opinions being put forth this week regarding the angry demonstrative people attending the August townhalls and September 12th rallies. Why are they so angry with Obama?
Some, including Jimmy Carter and Em think it's about race.
“Barack Obama stripped millions of Americans of their right to not have a black President.” Balloon Juice
"I remember when they were hooded." Margaret and Helen
""The president does not think (the birther handjob movement) is based on the color of his skin", White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters.
Well sure, that explains why they hated Clinton, too, but did the anti-Clinton handjobs take to the streets? No, this is a special kind of hate: "Them niggers just stole America and we decent white folk gotta steal it back ...and if a price has to be paid, I know God is on the I-hate-them-niggers side."
This has civil war written all over it.
Who thinks I'm kidding?"
I'm more inclined to think that, while ALL of the groups represented have SOME racists, "it’s hard to measure racial motivation. And it’s hard to measure levels of vitriol, whatever motivations may drive them." .
Some see The Revenge of Ron Paul's Army.
Others see the influence of Fox News and talk radio with their lies and fantasies about health-care reform swirled together with lies and fantasies about the chief executive himself.
