Idiots on Parade!!!!!
al-jazeera? That'll do A LOT to placate the Obama-is-a-muslim fears.
This clip will have no positive weight because it is from Al-Jazeera. Although everything in it scares me as an African American living in a podunk white town.
Al jezeera. Good report.
Show us more.
These people are scary, but I calm myself with the notion that Obama most likely has the best security money can buy, on top of the secret service.
People are disgusting. Watching that gives me little hope for America. I can't believe the ignorance of those people.
Why do you have to go to Al-Jazeera for this kind of story (or amateur hand-held YouTube videos)? Because the domestic "Liberal Mainstream Media" is too afraid or bought-in to show how absolutely batshit 40% of America is.
Hate, fear, ignorance, bibles, and guns. Obama WAS right these people are turning to every one of those things. These people see their life-style dying in front of them because those that suffered to build them their life-style are not putting up with the B.S. any more. These people are not prepared for change, no one really is, but these people don't have the social skills, the education, the horizon to see a world beyond the next hill.
wow, a negro running for president is automatically a second stringer, huh? lets have that guy debate obama and see which 'string' he winds up on.
this entire election season has been the most frustratingly fascinating social experiment i've ever observed. who are these people? why are they impervious to logic and fact? i cant figure it out. and i'm not trying to be a smarmy liberal here, i mean for real, what the fuck? i'm starting to think there must be some sort of physiological basis for these people's mind sets.
I can't believe the ignorance. They sound like a bunch of racist backwoods rednecks.
People should be required to pass a "basic candidate knowledge test" before being allowed to vote. Anyone who gets Obama's religion incorrect should be told to go home and study some more before coming back.
This is the Republican Party today. There's nothing else left but these people.
What makes me sad is I can imagine my dad saying any one of those things and there's nothing I can do to change his mind. :(
see what happens when people get their news from email first, fox second?
Long live slog, daily show, msnbc, cnn, and the thousands of daily and weekly news papers and magazines available online!
@12, I agree. It would be nothing but one's own stupidity and laziness that would prevent them from voting.
I take solace in the fact that most of the fucking hicks in this video are over 70 and, thus, will be dead soon. The sooner we scrub the earth of "The Greatest Generation", the better off society will be.
that guy with the baby reminded me of the creepy preacher from there will be blood.
"He thinks us white people are trash."
I've got a newsflash for her. You are trash. You are willfully stupid, hateful, racist, jingoistic trash.
Who are these people? Why are they in my country and how do I get them out?
This is the GOP base. And do you know what "Al Qaeda" translates to in English?
This being shown on Al Jazeera is like a swirling vortex of irony.
*THIS* plus Bob Herbert's column on "Amusing, but not funny" have pretty much ruined my day.
Well, also my neighbor putting up McCain/Palin signs...
#18 - my thoughts exactly...
that journalist has some serious cojones, i would bet he didnt tell the hicks he was from al jazeera, i bet they would have tried to beat the crap out of him.
is impossible to explain to hicks that al jazeera was started by ex bbc staffers.
That's because, in essence, they ARE a bunch of racist, backwoods rednecks; the only difference is that their ancestors moved out of the deep south two or three generations back, and ended up just slightly north of the Mason-Dixon Line.
I want to see the clips of those same ignorant people when they're told that their faces and words will be broadcast on Al-Jazeera.
That's why I watch Al Jazeera. But if you're shocked by it, y'all missed this gem from this morning's New York Times:
So much to choose from! My favorite: "A lot of people have forgotten about 9/11."
The Republicans deep down don't understand that fooling all of the people all of the time is not actually possible.
Fox News is like Pravda, but even Pravda is better than Fox News, and Al Jazeera out in front.
But isn't this whole anti-Muslim and anti-Black, racist shit basically pushing all the swing voters into Obama's camp?
The paranoid red state or die kinda attitude we see here is a dying breed. And they would rather flame out, than fade away. Now's their chance.
Wonderful idea. Let's bring back poll taxes while we are at it.
Mock them all you want, but I'd wager that the typical person at that rally knows far more about the detailed policy positions of McCain than the average Slogger knows about the specifics of Obama's platform.
@30. I would take that wager in a heartbeat.
@18 - That's exactly what I came here to say. That guy with the baby is Paul Dano.
@ 30 - How much do you want to bet?
How do these people manage to function even on a basic level? They are dumb as stumps. Peppered with a little of the crazy. (Oh, sorry, how elitist of me, my bad.)
@ 17 - I take issue with your statement. My dad is a WWII vet, was fiercely opposed to Vietnam, has alway been a liberal. Many patients I've met who are of "The Greatest Generation" have volunteered their views to me, ie, what a frightening idiot Bush is, how McCain and Palin will wreck this country, and how exciting it will be to watch Obama become president.
My comment @ 32 takes on the idiots interviewed. However, I don't assume all of the people from that area are moronic.
I live in a rural area in Louisiana where this type of behavior and opinions are very common. Everyone in my town thinks I have the devil in me and I'm un-American because I support Obama. I hear this type of speech every day, even from family, and I continue to be shocked by it every time! Most of the people with these extreme and prejudiced thoughts are white trash, and their point of view sickens me. I am slightly afraid for Obama at this point because of the radicalism of small towns like mine.
THIS is why I fear the outcome of the election. These folks are everywhere, in every state. They don't watch the debates, listen to both sides, make an informed decision. And they vote!
I feel great fear for Obama, have since the beginning. Let's face it, if he gets elected some people won't be able to tolerate it. I hope there is enough protection for him. I think he is the bravest person out there.
