Limbaugh Represents A Particular Kind

There is a kind out there, they are an attractive kind, and many like or love them. It’s the people who listen to Rush, with whom his ranting resonates. They are the Rush kind. Know who else was silent during Limbaugh’s lambasting of Miss Fluke; Sarah Palin had nothing to say about the assault on Miss Fluke. It’s FoxNews, Hannity, Beck, O’Reilly, Joe Scarborough, and Hasselbeck—the hate machine kind. They are fired up against President Obama, and are going to come out to vote against him–I trust they have their state IDs.

The primaries are about finding the “right” person who most resembles Rush, the person who is willing to call President Obama, a “colored uppity negro” or particular slavery slang to his face. It’s about being ignorant, spewing hate speech and religious indignation. The President was accurate in his description when he said they “cling to their guns and religion”, and they will use their guns like with Gabrielle Giffords.

Where some see the bible as a “how to book” for living righteously, I think others might see a how to for “white male supremacy”. It feels like the residue of “white only” drinking fountains press forward with their “American Agenda” and by American-I mean “white Christian male”– a world where the business class rules, and where women are whores, who should wash the feet of men.

Rush is only saying what they believe. When Limbaugh is sitting in his studio saying something crazy, I watch out for the person who agrees with him. They may or may not use the “language” of Limbaugh but you know they understand what Rush is saying. REGISTER; get your ID, AND VOTE.

“Take America Back To The Future”

I saw a sign from the rally on Saturday that resonated with me; it states exactly what I feel about the country right now and how important this election is for America as a nation. I have always felt the country had a very short memory, but why don’t people remember? So here is my written version of what I remember in the past thirty years since I have been following politics. Remember that it was Reagan a Republican who left Clinton a deficit. Remember we had a banking scandal under the first George Bush a Republican. Remember Bush2 lied about weapons of mass destruction and the Republicans and media went along with the lie, and remember people are still DYING as a consequence of that lie. Remember they impeached Clinton, but would not consider investigating Bush. Remember they outsourced our jobs and our government and our military. Remember Halliburton, and Blackwater. Remember Watergate, and the government shutdown in 1995. Remember how Republicans bash government but still want to be a part of it, remember that many of them have been a part of it for many years, like Boehner and McCain, remember how corrupt they are, remember that McCain chose Palin as his VP Candidate, and most of all remember the Tea Party and Republicans were SILENT during all of this! REMEMBER THE PEOPLE VOTED FOR OBAMA – and the Republicans and Tea Party have spent the past two years saying he is not legitimate, disrespecting your vote, as if only their vote counts. Remember they are not respecting your love for this country or the democratic process. Remember they did it during the war, if you weren’t for the war; you hated America, now if you don’t believe Obama is a socialist Muslim born in Kenya then you don’t love America.

Remember that for some the vote was not given but fought for, like women. Remember the civil war ended in the 1800’s but Jim Crowe ended in 1964. Remember what the founding fathers wrote, that America is not and will not be perfect but we should strive towards a more perfect union. Remember the Tea Party and Republicans think America is perfect, remember they want to dismantle the current Constitution and go back to the Constitution of the 1700s. Remember this is the millennium. Remember the contradictions in their argument. VOTE, NOV. 2, 2010 “Take America back to the future”

Is This America Now? Rand Paul Supporter Assaults Protester

Let us review this video, and take in the entire incident—there is more than one guilty party here. The guy that threw Lauren Valle to the ground should also be in trouble. Only the one who put his foot on her neck/shoulder is getting all the attention and hopefully a prosecution and not including the guy who threw her to the ground, this person also committed some serious violations in the way he was manhandling her. What right did they have to detain or restrain her?

Tim Profitt clearly had intent to do harm by applying the extra force and he also tried to cover it up when he realized people were watching by yelling “stay down”, Ms. Valle hadn’t moved since being thrown to ground except trying to protect her face and head. This guy was a campaign coordinator–he should know better, Ms. Valle is someone they already saw around town and knew was harmless. Let us call these people what they are “radicals”. Someone should do some time and pay some fines here, and if I was Ms. Valle I would sue the Rand Paul campaign.

I am extremely disturbed by this video, because we encountered a similar vibe while at the “Glenn Beck rally on September 28″ when someone showed up with an anti-beck sign—they were ready to go crazy. They have a way of taunting people and saying things they know are clearly racist and confrontational. If this is just swept away as if nothing it will be a real commentary on where we are as a nation. We have to put these people in the proper context-they are confrontational and violent– these people basically assaulted a woman simply for exercising her freedom of speech. It makes me think of the “god hates fags” signs that parade outside the funeral of soldiers — that these people feel those signs are protected but Lauren Valle‘s work was not.

I think of the clashes during the civil rights era and I am afraid that’s what these people want to take our country back to– the days of dogs and fire hoses. This is a direct result of what we see happening on fox “news”–when are we going to condemn the speech of the Fox News Propaganda machine as what it really is, incite-full hate speech—the fuel that is driving this ignorant engine. O’Reilly said we have a “Muslim problem” and Hitler had a “Jewish problem” we know what is happening we have seen it before. We have been seeing it for years and ignoring it–the abortion clinic bombings and shootings, the militias stockpiling weapons. Why are they allowed to do this when we know these people have a propensity for violence? This isn’t new, but now we have a black president and that is obviously the final straw. I am afraid some of these people who are now running for office might even be sleeper agents who are simply trying to get closer to the president to maybe try and “take him out”, who knows. One of them could decide they want to be a martyr for the cause. Michele Bachman, Sharon Angle, and Sarah Palin have already talked about reloading, targeting people, and second amendment remedies.

We are thankful that Ms. Valle is alright but I dread to think what could have happened if someone had not stepped in and stopped this mob of extremists, let’s stop this before it gets too far. We are entering a dangerous time let us not be oblivious to what is brewing because it’s not tea.

VOTE NOVEMBER 2, 2010.
