The blood is boiling, the eyes are red, the mob is ready to Attack. What is missing are the white conical masks and robes. Never in our Presidential Campaign history have we seen such deep-rooted, unadulterate HATE! It is 2008 and America's shameful, ugly bigots are surfacing. This Hatred is calling for the DEATH of John McCain's opponent!

I am seeing and hearing the unbelievable. These are the stories you would read in American history books and is being revealed in the McCain/Palin Campaign Rallys. Link

The fueling for this hatred lies solely on the McCain Campaign - their ads are beyond smearing, their speeches have surpassed mudslinging. Both McCain and Palin are now catering to the White Supremists in this country.

McCain's Attacks Fuel Dangerous Hatred by Frank Schaeffer ,

John McCain: If your campaign does not stop equating Sen. Barack Obama with terrorism, questioning his patriotism and portraying Mr. Obama as "not one of us," I accuse you of deliberately feeding the most unhinged elements of our society the red meat of hate, and therefore of potentially instigating violence.

At a Sarah Palin rally, someone called out, "Kill him!" At one of your rallies, someone called out, "Terrorist!" Neither was answered or denounced by you or your running mate, as the crowd laughed and cheered. At your campaign event Wednesday in Bethlehem, Pa., the crowd was seething with hatred for the Democratic nominee - an attitude encouraged in speeches there by you, your running mate, your wife and the local Republican chairman.

Shame!

John McCain: In 2000, as a lifelong Republican, I worked to get you elected instead of George W. Bush. In return, you wrote an endorsement of one of my books about military service. You seemed to be a man who put principle ahead of mere political gain.

You have changed. You have a choice: Go down in history as a decent senator and an honorable military man with many successes, or go down in history as the latest abettor of right-wing extremist hate.

John McCain, you are no fool, and you understand the depths of hatred that surround the issue of race in this country. You also know that, post-9/11, to call someone a friend of a terrorist is a very serious matter. You also know we are a bitterly divided country on many other issues. You know that, sadly, in America, violence is always just a moment away. You know that there are plenty of crazy people out there.

Stop! Think! Your rallies are beginning to look, sound, feel and smell like lynch mobs.

John McCain, you're walking a perilous line. If you do not stand up for all that is good in America and declare that Senator Obama is a patriot, fit for office, and denounce your hate-filled supporters when they scream out "Terrorist" or "Kill him," history will hold you responsible for all that follows.

John McCain and Sarah Palin, you are playing with fire, and you know it. You are unleashing the monster of American hatred and prejudice, to the peril of all of us. You are doing this in wartime. You are doing this as our economy collapses. You are doing this in a country with a history of assassinations.

Change the atmosphere of your campaign. Talk about the issues at hand. Make your case. But stop stirring up the lunatic fringe of haters, or risk suffering the judgment of history and the loathing of the American people - forever.

We will hold you responsible.


To the Evangelical Christians and the law-abiding Republicans, this is your candidate. Tell him to stop!
To the Sean Hannity, Michelle Malkin, Bill O'Reilly, Ann Coulters out there - speak out against this escalation of Hate.
This is Dangerous! This has to STOP!

During another period, in the not too distant past, there was a governor of the state of Alabama named George Wallace who also became a presidential candidate. Wallace was a staunch supporter for segregation.

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. Because of this atmosphere of HATE, four little girls were killed on Sunday morning when a church was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama.

Palin is too stubborn, stupid and incurious to know History ... but Veteran McCain needs to speak out against these Hateful rhetoric by his supporters.

How would you like to have your entire STATE considered racist? I was born, raised and still live in West Virginia. With the exception of the last 8 years, we have always been a blue state. The state was formed on the basis of wanting to break away from Virginia because our ancestors did not believe in the Southern view of Slavery. Does the name John Brown ring a bell? However, due to a \"poll\" compiled by some idiotic source, MSNBC touted the reasoning behind West Virginia\'s lack of support for Obama was because we were, \"racist, backwoods hillbillies,\" then gave the number of 22% would not vote Democrat due to race this election. I have no idea who was polled, obviously if this was a real poll they picked and prodded until they got what they wanted because almost every media outlet within the state came up with significantly different numbers. 9% wouldn\'t vote due to race. The top reason for not going back to the Democrat state we once were? Obama not only forgot about us during the Primaries-hence the reason Hillary won by an overwhelming majority, but he\'s also forgotten about us during his Presidential campaign.Simply driving through a small town and eating a sandwich doesn\'t do it for most of us.

The media needs to do a little research on a subject before spewing numbers and inaccurate portrayals of a people. Racists and hate mongers are everywhere-both Democrat and Republican, Northern and Southern, black and white. West Virginia happens to be caught in the middle. Not to mention people rarely remember we are a State and not a part of Virginia.

I\'m voting for Obama because the last 8 years have not only been hell on the country, but my home as well. Do I like my choice? Not 100%, but it\'s better than the alternative. I\'m just sick of living in a country where it\'s still ok to stereotype a State in the Union and it\'s people due to ignorance.

(You can look up the numbers and quotes from MSNBC- it was talked about on-air- I also have a post ready to go for the back to work crowd Monday morning, giving a little history lesson).
