Make Your Voice Heard
Forgive them Lord, for they know not what they say. If these are "real" Americans than I am proud to say that I am a conscientious, enlightened and "proud" American. I thank God every night that these "real" Americans are in the minority. How embarasing for this country.
I watched 8 minutes, now I have a stomach ache.
These people are friggin' idiots! I can't believe how many of them said that Beck never said that President Obama is a racist. As to dividing this country, the man they are there to see is the one who has done this. The ignorance of these people is appalling!
The key to watching this is to understand just how effective Fox News is with this group of people, and those who are "like them". This is the far right wing. The Teabaggers. The campaign by Fox and its associates has been completely effective to the point that there is no point in trying to dissuade them of their views and beliefs with actual facts because they would simply say you are making it up, or as the one guy said "your twisting the truth". You could show them video of Beck calling the President a racist and they would claim that you had edited the tape or not shown the true context. They want to believe in this propaganda because it fits with what they want to believe is the truth.
Hi Eye. I know YOU know Patrick i'm just reposting my comment EVERYWHERE I can this morning. He has a very important warning for ALL today:From Patrick at PalinGates, which is out of Germany. These people know exactly what is happening here:I have witnessed in Germany in 1992/93 how a racist "mass rage" can spin out of control.This kind of mass rage can easily happen again in other places as well. All you need is an incident, a reason to ignite the flame. There seems to be already a broad base of people in the USA who are heavily prejudiced against Muslims, and we have seen the first "incidents" against Muslims. What would for example happen if a Muslim "hits back" and hurts a "white person?" Wouldn't that give people a reason to "strike" against the Muslims?That's why Glenn Beck's and Sarah Palin's game is so dangerous: If you whip up the masses, you might as well see some (unwanted?) results.http://palingates.blogspot.com/2010/08/exclusive-pictures-and-report-from.htmlThanks for all you do!
I do not want to believe that there are so many ignorant, ill-informed, totally uninformed people in this country. But then I know there are millions of people who are just like that obese woman sitting there in the chair that said "All I know is what my sister tells me and she lives in AZ". You are one hundred percent right EOY, they want to believe the propaganda put out by Fox because is so conveniently fits their way of "the truth", because they "feel" its the truth. No facts, nothing; they just "feel" its right and just. We are so screwed as a country.
