it was just 10 nut jobs, some appeared not to be of voting age. extreme right wing pentecostal church or unemployed peeps payed by GOP'ers. nothing to see here. senator obama was even willing to let them stay until they started acting a fool. the only reason it is even "news" is because they were african american. african americans overwhelmengly support senator obama and 10 "protesters' does not a movement make.

i don't get what's so great about his handling of them - that he allowed them to hold their signs up till they were escorted out? "let's get back to work"?

Posted by max solomon | September 19, 2008 12:35 PM

It's time to stop humoring people like black Republicans and gay Republicans and treat them as the severely mentally ill: With compassion, straitjackets and 24 hour lock-downs so that they can't harm themselves or others.

Posted by Original Andrew | September 19, 2008 12:36 PM

what andrew said. it's just a pathetic freak-show that should be shut down by county mental health. anything else is not appropriate.

Posted by ellarosa | September 19, 2008 12:45 PM

That's what those guys were there for? I was at the rally, and no one there could read anything on their signs except "KKK".

Why can't the media cover a protest like the one in St. Paul?

OH, well.

Posted by fawxer | September 19, 2008 12:47 PM

it works out ok. i'm guessing that Obama isn't too fond of Jesse Jackson.

the old windbag.

If this had been the GOP convention, the hecklers would be in jail with a face full of pepper spray.

Posted by M | September 19, 2008 12:59 PM


If this had been shrub or McPalin speaking, those guys wouldn't have even gotten in the door, let alone have been allowed to hold up their freaking signs.

Put a suit on a (clean version) afro american and you still have an afro american. McCain will be our next president, polls for minorities have always trended way off. You will see in a few weeks.

Posted by Jay Bird | September 19, 2008 1:46 PM

Actually, the phrase "Jesse Jackson Hates Obama" is probably a vote getter among certain white people.

Posted by Catalina Vel-DuRay | September 19, 2008 1:46 PM

Log Cabin Republicans are like battered spouses..."But I LOVE him!".. "I can CHANGE him!" We need to tell these people the same thing we would tell someone in an abusive relationship.."Leave now! You can do better! They are no good for you!

As far as the "protesters" go..I do wonder how much they where paid?

Posted by scott in chi-town | September 19, 2008 2:08 PM

at least he can fill a space...

is it odd that it made me happy just to see a camera pan around a campaign rally and it appears that every seat was filled...

and as another faggot
log cabin republicans could go fuck themselves... but first they would have to get their heads out of their asses

Posted by ian | September 19, 2008 2:39 PM

You see, there are people who just don't or can't get "it". They want to fight against the very people that offer them hope, truth, and a better life. Why? Who knows what motivates such people? I remember the first time I heard there were black people who fought for the south in the civil war. I was shocked. But then I remembered my own up bringing and how I had been brainwashed by the Catholic Church. It's very effective and requires some deep thought to extract oneself from years of lies. And during a campaign, someone could be payed off to scream nonsense at a rally.

Go kill yourself. Now.

Posted by Mr. X | September 19, 2008 2:53 PM

Sweet Jesus that was hilarious!!

Please let them appear at a McCain/Palin rally.

Just one photo of McCain/Palin smiling with them is all I need.

Posted by Ren | September 19, 2008 2:53 PM

grace. something the palin/mcShame ticket is, i mean, the McSame/Bailin' ticket. i think Obama held himself well and i smell some GOP paid "volunteers" at that speech. maybe Grampa and Grandma at the other side will allow everybody in on their speeches. THANKS SLOG!

Posted by McShame and Grandma | September 19, 2008 3:21 PM

Sorry Dominic, but you do not have any legitimacy to say that LCR are voting against their self interests. They are proud to be gay just as much as you are, only their political dispositions are different. This is the essence of democracy – each person, no matter their sexual orientation, will choose who is the best candidate to lead this nation.

Posted by raindrop | September 19, 2008 3:23 PM

@ 19) Republicans have used anti-gay-marriage initiatives to get out the vote for their candidates. Ohio 2004 ring any bells? A gay person who votes for the GOP is voting against their own--an my own--interests. So they can go fuck themselves.

Posted by Dominic Holden | September 19, 2008 3:36 PM

I was under the impression that the KKK was supporting Obama because 1) even they didn't think McCain would be a good president and 2) the only way people like them can look smart is if Obama wins and somehow does a worse job than Bush.

Posted by iflurry | September 19, 2008 3:37 PM

Paid by GOP operatives acting in stealth.

Best to ignore all this shit.

They are trying to distract us, and they seem to be succeeding.

Posted by PC | September 19, 2008 3:45 PM

Dominic, despite the fact that the Republican is far more homophobic than the Democrats, that’s no reason to jettison the economic principals of the party (which now is actually what the Democrats used to be). Since Stonewall there have been two Democratic presidents and five Republican presidents – and still gay rights and acceptance have flourished. How could that be? Yes, we may have had gay marriage earlier otherwise – but at the expense of living in a sluggish Western-European type of society.

Posted by raindrop | September 19, 2008 4:02 PM

Comrade raindrop @ 23,

Nice to see that your virtual reality machine is in full tilt mode. We've had 28 wonderful years of Reagonomics AND THAT'S WORKED OUT DOUBLEPLUS GOOD!

Now onwards to the war with Spain!

Posted by Original Andrew | September 19, 2008 4:43 PM

The Republicans are behind this. They will do anything to win, even start another war as Palin talked trashed about Iran. I do not think that most Americans are so stupid to buy into any of this mess or Palin, just because she is a woman. Believe me, McCain is a worned out military strategist. He would have picked Donald Duck if he thought he could win with him. If Palin had ran in the primaries, you would have seen what McCain and the other Republicans really feel about women. She would not have lasted one week.

Posted by John Robert | September 19, 2008 4:45 PM

@23 I never cease to be amazed that the Republican party actually sends paid shills to this site.

Obviously, your point that the Republicans are fiscally responsible is at best a paid-for lie and at worst a delusion -- so we won't waste any more time on that.

But are you really this stupid and/or do you think anyone else is:

"Since Stonewall there have been two Democratic presidents and five Republican presidents – and still gay rights and acceptance have flourished. How could that be?"

Uh, gee, I don't know -- could it possibly be in SPITE of Republican rule? Could it be despite everything Republicans have done not to allow that to be true? Could it be a monumental effort, a constant fight, a greater strength of purpose and decency on the part of the LGBT community that made it happen?

Thanks for congratulating Republicans for the political progress that some good queer people and their friends have fucking died to bring about while fighting Repbublicans, you fucking idiot asshole.

@19 LCR=Kapo

Posted by snarky | September 19, 2008 5:23 PM

@26: Exactly. Your second to the last paragraph is correct. It was the LGTB community that championed our rights, fought the bad republicans, and the occasional bad democrats, in state legislators and initiatives throughout these past decades. But why not deal with both parties despite the challenges LCR obviously face? Are we to say out-of-hand that they're insurmountable? Perhaps. But since when have we been a minority of whiners and been courageous to make our progress on all fronts. You have to consider the eventual outcome of both parties listening to and acting on our communities concerns, and it is happening, far more slowly in the GOP, but it is happening in BOTH parties.

Posted by raindrop | September 19, 2008 5:42 PM


It is simply amazing to see how easilly some liberals off-handedly denegrate blacks who don't conform to their small-minded ideas of how black people should act. Unemployed? Paid by the Republicans? Mentally ill? Why must you place them into a marginalized category if they don't agree with you? Does the fact that they are thinking for themselves and have CHOSEN to disagree with you prove bothersome?

It must.

You're certainly eager to dismiss them as cooks or paid shills instead of understanding that they are good people who happen to have formed an opinion that runs counter to yours despite your notions of where their political beliefs should lie.

Racisim: REAL RACISIM is an ugly thing. It must be uglier coming from your own mouth. You don't own black people.

Now feel free to spew your vile tripe my way. I've seen how ugly you can become when you hear someone out of step with you. Call me any name you please.

I am used to your intolerance.

Posted by Strangerer | September 19, 2008 7:51 PM

Those people are AMERICAN heroes, its funny you Democrats talk about peace but then ya'll start riots while protesting the republican convention, yeah thats real peaceful. Also the "faggots" no body cares if your gay, there is nothing unique about ya'll anymore, if i had a nickel for every time i saw a "fag" on the streets i would be the wealthiest person in the world, All of ya'll are racists, ya'll assume just bc they are black, they must be obama supporters, thats called stereotyping, Plus yall hate freedom, why did yall kick them out, all they were doing was standing their quietly, yall felt the need to silent their freedom of speech just bc they dont agree with yall, way to go commies

Posted by Chris | September 19, 2008 8:00 PM

What were these protestors doing, to help society before Obama became the presidential nominee? What other causes have they fought for... I've never seen these guys doing anything, before they started heckling Obama. If the GOP had something to do with them, then what was the price. They follow Obama around to heckle him, but after the election if Obama loses, then what will they do then?

Posted by Thomaticus | September 19, 2008 8:08 PM

Obama did say get in people’s faces, I guess his message is catching on…congrats to those young people in the audience realizing what a shame Obama is right now

Posted by AL | September 19, 2008 8:30 PM

Ask yourself this question: if racism and poverty ended today, what political party would be destroyed?

The answer is the democrat/socialist party that depends on the fear of racism and poverty in order to maintain control over their slaves.

A true conservative believes in the ultimate minority, the minority of the individual. Join the blacks against Obama and help put an end to the evils of racism, socialism, poverty, and the American socialists known as democrats.

A vote for Obama is a vote for racism, poverty, slavery, and death.

Posted by john galt | September 19, 2008 8:57 PM

Outrage over African-American Republicans - Isn't the democrat party the party that celebrates diversity, uniqueness and tolerance? What a bunch of hypocrites. It’s always hilarious to witness the left wing’s true colors shine through. It’s also comedy when gays preface their extreme political statements by proclaiming their homosexuality, as if that grants them licenses to make dumbass statements. Let me guess, if McCain wins you are moving to Canada? I heard it gets cold up there, better pack some gloves.

Posted by Ben | September 19, 2008 9:00 PM

i love how so may of you dismiss who these people are with pure speculation. they must be retarded. they must be insane. the fact that there are black people who are against obama means something. it shows that there are some black people who have actually taken the time to evaluate the candidates and they don't like the guy. our ridiculous political system is merely a popularity contest now. do you people really think that obama has the credentials to be president? i mean seriously. i voted for bill clinton two times, so don't start assuming that i'm some right wing whacko. after all, if someone doesn't agree with you, they MUST be a whacko.

Posted by george | September 19, 2008 9:28 PM

@35 - No I just think your are a bogus right wing sock puppet. You can always spot you guys. What tips your hands are bull shit remarks like "i voted for Bill Clinton two times." Go fuck off, I think Hannity is on.

Posted by Who let all of the right wing wackos in here | September 19, 2008 9:36 PM

1. The black people in the audience are not being talked down on because they are black and against Obama. It is because they are wielding signs about the KKK and being inappropriate, interrupting a pro-Obama rally. The only reason they're there is to be on TV. There is absolutely nothing wrong with black people against Obama, or protesting him, or being in a group with that purpose. There is something rude about the way they have done this, and I feel like Obama handled it in that way - they have the right to hold those signs, to be against him, but they're interrupting his rally and they need to be respectful of the fact that he is giving a speech.

2. #11 Jay Bird, that is pretty low. As a white republican from a whitebread family, that is offensive to me. I can't imagine what kind of impact saying things like that has on other diverse cultures around the world and in our own nation. That must be why the United States of America has such a high appreciation from the rest of the world right now.

Posted by Scott | September 19, 2008 11:02 PM

But as a faggot, I shall seize this moment criticize my own ilk who vote against our interests: Log Cabin Republicans can go fuck themselves.

McCain & Obama share the same view on this(same-sex marriage) issue. Just sayin'...

Posted by Dexter | September 19, 2008 11:53 PM

Even black folks can't stand Barack Obambi! Obambi's going down!

Liberals and their media are getting ready to see their "celebrity" bite the dust. Palin has more experience than Obama so why is only her experience being questioned by the liberal media? Two years as governor of the largest state in America compared to 18__ something days in senate! Biden should be the presidential candidate and Obambi should be the VP candidate. You guys can't even get your ticket right! Obambi's experience is never questioned by democretins even though he has done nada, zip, zilch! Obama and his followers are losers. McCain is going to change things so the liberals need to stay in Hollywood where nobody cares about their opinion!

McCain/Palin 08'

Posted by Big Cris | September 20, 2008 12:31 AM

@ 11. Jay Bird, to answer your comment in kind, suck a dick and die.

@33. Ridiculous nonsense. First off, stop cutting and pasting your bullshit message all over the web. Second, Democrats use Fear and Scare tactics? Are you serious? You republicans scream red, orange, yellow, and whatever other color under the sun alert in order to strip the sheep of their rights without so much as a peep; in order to start wars for no reason (no Justified reason). We ask for investigations into 9/11 and we are immediately called unpatriotic. You say the individual should "help himself"; "pull himself up by the bootstraps", but bail out the Corps who rob the individual. (AIG, etc)

@35. Yes you MUST be whacko, insane, and most of all retarded! Your senile candidate and that crooked billygoat of a vp will only take what Bush did to this country (1.left it in a state of ruin 2. Took it back to the Great Depression 3. Unconstitutionally taken away our rights....) and continue the demolition.
Why can't Republicunts ever talk about issues. Palin hasn't discussed an issue intelligently yet. McCain can't remember his stance on any issue from one minute to the next. Obama's only mistake is conducting himself with class, while the Re's smear him in order to avoid the fact that they have no plans for bettering the crisis in America.

Now for those of you who want to defend those protesters, take a look at their website:, where they claim that both Oprah and Obama are the devil, oppose child support, and claim that women's voting rights(particularly black women's) are causing America's problem; clearly they ARE either insane, or more likely they are, in fact, puppets of that wrong wing. Either way, they are self-denegrating negros & only serve to be crabs in a barrel, not worthy of the air they breathe.

Posted by J.Q. | September 20, 2008 1:28 AM

@33: if racism and poverty ended today, what political party would be destroyed? The Republicans. The Republican party is only held together by the fear and hate they incite in their targeted demographics. They whip up anti-gay, anti-immigrant fervor to energize their base. If racism, poverty, homophobia and xenophobia ended today - the Republicans wouldn't have a leg to stand on and they know it.

Your answer is wrong and your logic is laughably flawed. John Galt, my ass. More like Tom Cruise jumping off a couch or attacking Matt Lauer for pointing out science.

@34 Your wit is so sharp, it could blunt someone to death.

@35 You voted for Clinton twice? Riiiight. And you're using this claim as a shield against people calling you out on your idiocy? Good luck with that.

@36 Are the republicans hiring the same trolls as the scientologists to patrol the net and spew nonsensical partisan bile? Sometimes I don't know who is more nuts: the Xenu worshippers or rightwing nutbags.

Posted by selwyse | September 20, 2008 3:48 AM

Wow, what's with the sudden infusion of trolls? Michael Savage or one of those other right-wing hatemongers must have linked to this thread or something.

I'd say posts 29-36 were all the work of one busy little RNC flack, or perhaps two max.

Oh, and fuckface @ 30, the only riot that occured at the Republican convention was on behalf of the police. Nice brown shirt you're wearing, there.

Posted by Mr. X | September 20, 2008 4:11 AM

So, let me get this straight: When blacks rail against oblabla, they're racists, too????

Posted by Tischindelray | September 20, 2008 4:25 AM

obama clearly learned kerry's lesson by not letting these guys get tased, bro.

Posted by scott | September 20, 2008 9:03 AM

I can't believe all the posters taking this "protest" serious. It is silly.

A few black people with handwritten signs is new worthy? When they start shutting cites down from the mass protesting then that is news.

This is nothing more than some people (who happen to be black) hating on Obama.

Jessie Jackson wanted to cut off Obama's nuts. Why? Because he is a hater.

Think these protester could have gotten into a Republican rally? Hell no. That is too many black folks for them anti-Obama or not.

Posted by Ren | September 20, 2008 2:57 PM

Original Andrew @4: You should add poor white Republicans, middle class Republicans, white women Republicans and any Republicans who love any of those groups of people. The only folks who should be voting Republican are straight rich white men who do not love women.

Posted by Papayas | September 20, 2008 6:46 PM

typical liberals....they like groups that are different than the norm UNLESS YOU DISAGREE WITH THEM! trust me swing voters are watching!

Posted by b-dub | September 22, 2008 9:58 PM

I am a black woman and no way will I even considered backing or voting for Obama. I DON'T TRUST HIM. I do not like the way he disrespects white women in the media. He probably treats his wife and daughters even worst at home. Don't assume that a majority of black people support him.

Posted by ABW | September 23, 2008 2:19 AM

as a black man, i am not voting for obama. he is clearly a socialist (google AUDACITY OF SOCIALISM). my family is hard working and enjoying the American dream. two of my sons and myself will be taxed as rich in his socialist system. generations on welfare have developed a sense of entitlement and my tax dollars will enable them to continue to underachive.
