Thin Skinned Democrats

I get some pretty nasty comments from time to time being a female blogger who uses my real name and calls things like I see them. So please forgive me for not understanding the Democrats (both in and out of the media) whining about the angry McCain "mobs." First, a few (literally only a handful) of people out of the tens (if not hundreds) of thousands who have attended McCain rallies does not a "mob" make. Second, the things that a handful of people have said is NOTHING compared to some of the stuff said and done by people Barack Obama actually knows. McCain doesn't know these people yelling stuff out from the crowd. We don't even know if they are really Republicans. Yet the racist "God Damn America" Wright and domestic terrorist Ayers, who bombed the Pentagon and wanted to bomb "our own troops at a dance with their wives and girlfriends at Fort Dix, New Jersey," are not only known by name to Obama, but they are people who shaped his political career.

Even without those examples of Obama associates, the hate displayed by those on the left toward Republicans and George Bush over the past eight years makes the things yelled by a few at McCain rallies sound like love notes. I could go back through a thousand blog posts and MSM news stories and cite hundreds of examples, but people reading this blog know what I am talking about. Just for the heck of it though, and for those who don't regularly read or listen to new media outlets, let me provide a couple of examples of hate speech against McCain-Palin from just this week. Here is a picture of a tee shirt worn by an Obama follower that says Sarah Palin is a (C word that I won't repeat). But Obama surely can't be held responsible for the fashion choices of all his followers. If this shirt had been pictured on Obama's website or something, well, then that would be another story. Except that, oops, it was on his website. And from my state, North Carolina, from today:


After McCain's rally here in the Tar Heel State, Barack Obama and McCain supporters engaged in some verbal taunting outside the Cape Fear Community College after one Obama supporter began repeatedly yelling "McCain is a murderer."

"He fought for your right to say that," one woman yelled.

How dare that woman try to defend McCain. Doesn't she know that liberals have the right of free speech and can call Republicans anything they want? It's not like Obama told his followers to get in the faces of McCain supporters or anything? Oops. Actually he did.

I know that Obama's followers believe when he is President the world will bow down to the newly transformed United States in awe of it's delicious Obama-ness, but those whose brains are not yet Obamafied might realize there will always be those in the world who hate America -- in spite of his Obamessianic greatness. How will Obama and those surrounding him react when someone in another country levels any criticism his way, or possibly even calls him a not nice name or (gasp) burns his likeness in effigy? I wonder if his thugs will attempt to silence those outside of America like they have those inside the country? Or will he just threaten to meet them without preconditions?

Update: John Hawkins has compiled a few examples of hate from the left. Michelle Malkin has been documenting the Unhinged Left for many years. She has posted a few recent examples also, including one aimed at Palin, "Let's stone her -- old school style."

I can't help but think the real world is too smart for this. But I can see your point, with his logo in the form of a big "O" with some muddling in the center. He obviously puts himself above any change he (avoids) saying he'll put into motion. Maybe the left just believe they are the ones allowed to be angry and not right, I don't know. The pattern is obvious, though. If you want to eliminate both parties, turn them against each other in a move toward socialism. I wouldn't call it a conspiracy so much as a guided influence.

Lorie - have you taken any time to address the calls for his death or racism of your fellow supporters, or do you just plan on simply ignoring it and attacking? Any words at all?

First, a few (literally only a handful) of people out of the tens (if not hundreds) of thousands who have attended McCain rallies does not a "mob" make.

The calls for his death were way over the top and need to be reported on. (Fortunately the secret service is on those people) Also, the racism of the supporters is important to call out as well - a great example being the man who brought a monkey with an Obama sticker to a rally (there have been more), the racist Aunt Jemima-like characterture sold and purchased at evangelical conferences, the racist billboards in MO, the racist buttons about a "White House" sold and purchased at official GOP functions.

Other than that, yeah, a really great bunch of folks.

Better to implicitly state that overt racist actions and words aren't really racist.

AJ:

I don't suppose jp2 has seen the post over at Malkin's site which covers this same topic. She has numerous examples of everything from hoping for a gang-rape of Palin to death threats. Apparently things like that are only hateful if the one being tormented is a minority.

WildWillie:

JP2 is the typical lefty. "We can, you can't" is their motto. We can show scars of McCains face and have a "doctor" appear and say McCain will die from his cancer. Nevermind. What difference does it make to try to explain the hypocricy to hypocrits. ww

Depicting someone as a monkey isn't racist. It's done to George W Bush all the time.

One of my best friends sister had a pollster call here in Texas this weekend
Every other question was so you are voting for who O or Mc and she said I already told you McCain. By the end of the survey the pollster said
"so may I speak to the youngest person in your house" she said "I dont mean to be rude but I am going to hang up now".
Another incident with a friend's relatives in texas also this weekend: the pollsters got hold of their cell phone and didnt like the results given to their survery. It was similar to the item mentioned in snopes but the one on snopes is in a different area. The relative called the local sheriff and Joe told her what to do to report the incident.
No matter what side one is on these tactics are wrong and can be considered harassing. To me it would be scary as well.

Lorie

Only one quibble. "The World" does not hate America, only the world's Left hates America.

America is anathema to the Left's ideology, so American values must be changed or destroyed.

If the Left of the World is enamored of The One it is because he is one of them.

I don't know where jp2's comment (referenced above) went. I didn't delete it, but I don't see it now. Here is the text from it:

I don't think it is okay to call for anyone's death, so maybe jp would like to comment on the literally thousands of instances of those on the left calling for the death of George Bush, Dick Cheney, Condi Rice, etc. -- not to mention the horrific comments made about Palin and her children. This one is not even close people. Not even in the same ballpark. The few recent comments yelled at some McCain rallies by people who may or may not be supporters is nothing compared to all the "on the record" calls for violence from those on the left over the past 8+ years. If anyone wants to do an incident by incident comparison, it would take literally days to compile all those from the left, but John Hawkins and Michelle Malkin has compiled a few. I just posted links to their posts in the update.

Thomas Jackson:

Great post! I am sick to death of those who feel obligated to kowtow to the Left because some loon did something inappropriate while the Left makes a fetish out of death threats. I seem to recall a Hollywood celebrity calling for the Lefties to go down and hang the president and burn down his homwe on tv to the twittered laughter of the Left.

I much prefer the Obamists race card palying. The I am so offended line is just so metrosexuaL. tOO BAD SO MANY BLOGGERS SEEM TO HAVE DRUNK THAT kOOL aID.

nO DOUBT THEY ARE ADVISING THE mCcAIN CAMPAIGN.
