McCain/Palin Mob, Part 2: more aggressive ignorance
Tim Russo has part two of the McCain/Palin Mob in Strongsville, OH (part 1 here), where he interviews wingers outside of a Bible Spice rally, asking them the question “Do you think Barack Obama is a terrorist?” Tim:
This video includes a family who believes Barack Obama is a terrorist. They brought an Obama doll, to show he’s a “puppet”, and when asked why, their small child says “you need gloves to touch him”. Bonus footage of 2 closeted gays – see if you can tell which ones!
Bottom line – I have never seen such a dangerous group of people at a presidential rally, so willing to announce their views to a guy holding a camera, and so transparently up to no good. These people are very easily incited, as we have seen, and they need to be exposed.
In particular, a woman, who teaches her own child, that the next president of the United States is so vile that “you need gloves to touch him” needs to be put on video, and see how her views look in the light of day. I don’t know how anyone can teach their own child this level of hate.
These people are boldly ignorant.
Some select quotes in response to “Do you think Barack Obama is a terrorist?”:
Woman 1: “He’s a domestic terrorist.”
Tim: “So why did John McCain stand onstage with him?”
Woman 1: “Because he’s an honest, good man.”
Woman 2: “Sarah [Palin] is a normal woman.”
Tim: “and Barack is…?”
Woman 2: “He’s a politician, a seasoned politician.”
Tim: “That doesn’t make him normal?”
Woman 2: “No…no…how many politicians are there versus normal people?
Tim: “Sarah’s one.”
Woman 2: “She’s a politician but she’s more on the normal side.”
Woman 3: “SHE’S A WOMAN!!”
Tim: “How long have you known Sarah Palin?”
Woman 4 (carrying a Barack Obama doll/puppet): “All my life.”
A man next to her is carrying a sign that says “NObama, my Grandma said, “You are the company you keep.” Tim asks “what company are you referring to.” The man says: “the likes of guys like Bill Ayers.”
Man #2: “I think he’s a Communist and a Marxist…I think he was indoctrinated by the teachings of his father.”
Tim: “You know he only saw his father twice in his entire life.”
Man #2: “The teachings of his father…not personally.”
Another video of conservative crazies spewing bile is after the jump. And look at this dude at a Waukesha, Wisconsin town hall, spurred on by fellow — ahem — enthusiastic McCainiacs shouting “USA, USA” really lost it. What will they do if Obama wins?
Right wing nutcase to McCain: “When you have an Obama, Pelosi and the rest of the hooligans up there gonna run this country we got to have our heads examined. It’s time that you two are representing us and we ARE MAD.”
I’m beginning to think that these clips of the crazies are of the up-till-now hidden Freepi. I think those folks are so desperate and angry that they are showing their faces in public for the first time. Scary people.
