-- "all of you racists/anti-gay/anti-Americans..."
Obama is -- a least partially -- black. So, it follows that if you are against Obama you are against blacks. Believe it or not, this blatant ruse actually works on some unfortunate people. Some people are so terrified of being labeled a racist that they will support a black candidate just to disprove this accusation. To those of us who oppose BHO, this type of subterfuge is so glaringly transparent that it's hardly worth the effort of argument. In our many articles here and elsewhere we have carefully innumerated all of the many reasons for our anti-Obama stance, and provided appropriate sources where nesessary; none of which have anything whatsoever to do with Barack's particular coloring; but all of which have everything to do with his deftly hidden agendas.
On the second point, I don't recall ever mentioning gays, or stating that I was anti-gay in any of my pieces, but don't let any of these little facts get in the way of your little self-righteous and uninformed rant.
Thirdly, on being anti-American if one is anti-Obama; this is so preposterous on the face of it that it is almost comical. The liberals in Congress and in our leftist media have done more to harm this country, and to render it more vulnerable to our enemies than any fifth-column muslims here could ever have done. To call us anti-American for opposing more of the same -- or worse -- is nothing less than ludicrous.
However, the truly worrisome thing here to me, is not in dealing with people like our commenter, whose mind is already made up and closed; no, the troubling thing now is finding a way to reach all of those people out there who, for whatever reasons, were totally unimpressed by 9/11, and who in their oblivious ignorance honestly believe that the trouble we are in in this world is all because of our inherent racism and intolerance. It has nothing to do with islamism, or jihadists, or the qur'an. Somehow, Osama bin Laden's clear and unequivocal Declaration of War against us carries no weight with them. They just ignore him and all of those other islamist threats. They ignore bin Laden's statements because they know better. They know that what this whole conflict is about is about our American imperialist bullying and our national racism and xenophobia and our fear of a foreign religion, a peaceful foreign religion that has been hijacked by a few radicals -- similar to how our Christianity has been hijacked by our KKK. They instinctively know that the cure for this disease is DIALOGUE (such as that which we experienced recently at Columbia University). Reaching out to our enemies and embracing them with the soft warm arms of reason. That's the answer.
Not offensive wars. Not defensive measures; but LOVE and UNDERSTANDING.
That's what they'll be voting for. They have been molded in our universities and in our media by those aging Children of the Sixties, and they are in love with LOVE. And Barack Hussein Obama is the incarnation of Love.
This, then, is our challenge. If we are to avoid the imminent destruction of our precious democracy and the steady erosion of our common values, these are the people we somehow have to reach; our self-important commenter above is unfortunately already lost.
Once again -- God help us in our efforts, or God help us all.
