The rabid right-wingers in our midst are increasing their hate-attacks on Barack Obama. They seem to be in panic mode, their rantings becoming even more inane and insane. Although they will always attract a certain number of crazies to their loony-bins, it appears, fortunately, that many Americans are sick and tired of their madness.
Jamison Foster at Media Matters has summarized some of their "vitrolic and irrational" messages:
The following have attacked Senator Obama for visiting his very ill grandmother: Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, Jerome Corsi, et. al.
A columnist for the Washington Times (the Moonie paper) said Obama was a "'Marxist' who believes that 'murdering innocent babies ... is an inalienable right.'"
Some nutcases writing at WorldNetDaily are claiming Obama not only supported but actually campaigned for "radical Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga" while in Kenya in 2006. This is, needless to say, absolutely false!
Thomas Sowell, one of our lesser columnists, "compared Obama to Hitler, Mao and Jim Jones." Why? "...they all spoke inspiringly of 'change.'"
Bill O'Reilly, the master of mud, stated that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "practices her speeches too much, noting that Hitler also practiced speeches before delivering them."
Bill Cunningham, a radio klutz, thinks of Obama as the anti-Christ, and often refers to Obama by his middle name. He once used the term, "Barack Mohammed Hussein Obama."
Lee Rodgers, another radio "host," went on air with the lie that Obama said he would "'stand with the Muslims" against "the Western World."
The aforementioned people represent just a small portion of those hate-mongers who, through lies and innuendo, and to increase their flock (and thus make more money), try to derail the movement toward truth and justice in this country.
But the worst is yet to come. Please checkout the upcoming post on James Dobson and his house of evil.
