Re: OT: Speaking of the hate speech from the right...

Page 1 of 2  


I'm amazed at some of the urban myths/lies that fly around despite having been thoroughly refuted years ago. Occasionally someone I think of as a liberal sends me one (the fake list of books Palin supposedly wanted banned from the Wasilla library comes to mind) but for the most part these things seem to appeal to my right-wing friends. I just saw that one that claims to be quotations from Obama's books, it's been around for years and despite having been shown to contain outright fabrications it's still alive. People accept what they want to believe and don't bother to check the background, and at times they seem almost resentful if you show them these things are bogus. Like the man said, a lie is halfway around the world before the truth has finished putting on its shoes.

Yup, anyone who doesn't walk lock-step with Obamy and the libs is obviously guilty of racism, hatred, hate speech and (most likely) abusing babies.
This is the last bastion of libs, folks: the definition that if you're not with us and speak like we say, you're obviously a racist.

And I say: Screw anybody who thinks that. I want nothing to do with 'em.
I tried to find it online but The O must have had it taken down. It was a picture of "Obama eating a baby." Well, the baby had stuck its entire hand into Obama's mouth and the caption was a hoot.

No, virtually all polls report the plurality of respondents self-identify as "independents." That these independents are tending to the right is no different in kind than marriage where reality finally trumps fantasy.

Leftists are worried about something.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/03/25/rep-cantors-richmond-campa ..
These two lines caught my eye and attention. First, the name calling. "Leftist?" "Tea Bagger," etc. and so forth..
I used to tell people that Americans never kiled a Vietnamese in all the years we spent defending French Colonial Rubber Plantations in Southeast Asia. Realyy, check it out. We shot Gooks and Slopes and Cong, of course as they were the identified demons we were told were our enemies.
When working aon the Kerry Campaign I was so frustrated with the Democrats who attended the rallies wearing a Beat Bush button instead of a Kerry button. I tried like hell to get folks to "accentuate the positive" to little or no avail. And those against W lost.
They did it a gain in the next elections and, in a real dirty fight, lost again.
Now, maybe three's a charm, but whe the message was change to an affirmative vision and positive slogans and sentiments, they picked up the necessary swing votes and swept House and Senate as well as electing a Democratic President.
Someone cited a poll in here without linking us to the poll istelf, the question asked, the context, etc. and so forth. One sure thing certain about polling is that the results will change. Another thing is that it seems possible to find several polls with broadly different results on any given day.
Come November, we will have another shot at the Polls that really count - like the polls that brought us these leaders a year or so back.
Oh, the other thing in that clip I referenced, above, was the www.foxnews part. Anyone who regularly watches Rubert's Beck et al should spent an hour with the Daily Show an Colbert Report at least once a week to do a vitality check on their sense of humor and gain another perspective on Fox's issues.
Enjoy

The human species has a great ability to ignore facts when they conflict with cherished beliefs. For some reason, the US seems to have the most of that ability. Just check the percentages of people in the US who believe in religion, refuse to accept the evidence for evolution or global warming, think the Earth is only 4000 years old, etc.. Now compare those numbers to any other industrialized country. Sigh.

Oh, come on! I work with three people who don't believe in evolution but do believe mankind (and the world) is only 4,000 years old. And these folks ARE college educated.

Which leads me to ask what college did they attend and how did they graduate? I'm sure there are people around that don't subscribe to Darwin's theory of evolution, but in my 56 years, I've never met even one that didn't. I suspect this might be a regional affectation.

I know an MD who doesn't buy it either--he sees the hand of God in all sorts of things where I see the hand of chaos.
