Can Science Find a Vaccine Against Palin-esque Obama Hate?

6 07 2009

Ashamed to say this is my own state —
Jacksonville Florida, at an event sponsored and heavily hyped by the local Republican Party.

hitler-obama tea party 2 in 1

July 4 “tea party” protests were a lot smaller this time around, so logically there must have been less net hatred and ignorance being spewed than in the April events.

I guess.

But American education obviously still has its work cut out and then some, especially if Sarah Palin is now heading for the Lower 48 as some sort of um, leading light. . .

Were there ever many Jewish Rs?
If so, I’m doubting there could be any left.

From the “Republican” link above, no wonder Colin Powell has had it along with the Jews:

. . .White privilege is when you can claim that being mayor of a town smaller than most medium-size colleges, and then governor of a state with about the same number of people as the lower fifth of the island of Manhattan, makes you ready to potentially be president, and people don’t all piss on themselves with laughter, while being a black U.S. senator, two-term state senator and constitutional law scholar means you’re “untested.”

White privilege is being able to say that you support the words “under God” in the pledge of allegiance because “if it was good enough for the founding fathers, it’s good enough for me,” and not be immediately disqualified from holding office — since, after all, the pledge was written in the late 1800s and the “under God” part wasn’t added until the 1950s . . .

White privilege is being able to be a gun enthusiast and not make people immediately scared of you.

White privilege is being able to have a husband who was a member of an extremist political party that wants your state to secede from the Union, and whose motto was “Alaska first,” and no one questions your patriotism or that of your family, while if you’re black and your spouse merely fails to come to a 9/11 memorial so she can be home with her kids on the first day of school, people immediately think she’s being disrespectful.

From the Moderate Voice:

. . .[Palin is] the ultimate hijack of the Republican Party by the religious far-right wing all packaged with a wink and a smile.

I know how this all sounds, call me sexist, call me a socialist or call me an elitist –- that’s all fine with me but please tell me how she would get the banks loaning money again. I am happy to be considered all of the above but if you can tell me how she plans to calm the growing tensions in the Middle-East I will gladly be pleasantly surprised by Ms Palin. But I am unable to find such mind easing statements.

It’s disappointing because America needs a respected, functioning, intelligent opposition to Obama’s Democratic Party. If there was ever a time to sell real fiscal Conservative values it would be now, when job loss rates are at its highest in 26 years and confidence in the American financial market is at an all time low. But instead America has an opposition party that is in meltdown and foams at the mouth and screams ‘SOCIALIST’ every time Obama is on the television screen (which is a lot).

If the Republicans want steer their way out of the political wilderness, Palin is NOT the driver to help them do so.

Our local 4th of July “tea party of hate” was a dud, too. There were three very angry-faced teabaggers carrying signs in the parade I was forced to attend; later I heard this small group (max: 100 participants) carry on before the local fireworks show. Chants of “No. More. Taxes,” among countless replayings of Lee Greenwood’s “I’m Proud to be an American”… yeah,… it was a long day 😛

So, at this rate, they will completely disappear soon?

We live in hope. . .
