how dare any one judge any ethnic as a whole -that is a real abomination. countless arabs are beautiful people -countless. how dare them use god or yeshua in any of their hate baiting -pure ignorance. i am deeply offended. where are the apologies from mkkkain/palintology. if obama has to be responsible for every fraud brought upon the dems. then they are certainly responsible for their supporters. they planted this seed of destruction and are praying to their prince of the air to make this full grown by election day. they really are the anti messiah's -they are the ones destroying from within. lets kick their a$$ at the polls. obama for president!!!

REPUBLICAN VALUE$ : WATCH: Republican Michele Bachmann: "Not All Cultures Are Equal" "There
is a movement afoot that's occurring and part of that is whole
philosophical idea of multi-cultural diversity, which on the face
sounds wonderful. Let's appreciate and value everyone's cultures. But
guess what? Not all cultures are equal."

The Ugly American John McCain, who claims to put "Country First," should re-read The Ugly American. Sarah Palin can watch the movie.

McCarthyism Redux: The McCain Campaign's Calumny Express

Viewed in isolation, any one of several recent incidents might be dismissed as an aberration. Together, they form a disquieting, unmistakable pattern.

From outside of the US, Canadians watch as your nation is polarized and the extremists come out of hiding into the open, heaping their vitriolic hatred on anyone who doesn't agree with them. They condemn every group but their own, it seems, which leaves them as a minority extremist group wanting a religious government and country. Gee, sounds familiar to me, like the radical Islamists/terrorists, or the terrorists in your own country that destroyed the government building in Oklahoma, was it? It is very frightening to think that an even more radical and unethical group could end up ruling your country, when your Constitution is so eloquent in its protection of citizen's rights, and separation of church and state. That doesn't seem to be the agenda for the McCain/Palin ticket...

Madeleine, does this remind you of the Canadians and their treatment of the Dukhobours?

We do not have to vote for extremists. There are other candidates. Ralph Nader is running, Alan Keyes is running, Bob Barr is running, Cynthia McKinney is running.

Democrats, question: if your party platform is so popular, how come the most powerful Democrat in the world has not had a town meeting since 2006 and has refused a public debate this election? Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised the 'First 100 hours' - the Democrats would change everything. They didn't change it then. Why should we believe them now?

From The American division:

What is known, however, is that Ms. Palin has had long associations with religious leaders who practice a particularly assertive and urgent brand of Pentecostalism known as “spiritual warfare.”

Its adherents believe that demonic forces can colonize specific geographic areas and individuals, and that “spiritual warriors” must “battle” them to assert God’s control, using prayer and evangelism. The movement’s fixation on demons, its aggressiveness and its leaders’ claims to exalted spiritual authority have troubled even some Pentecostal Christians.

Ms. Palin delivered an enthusiastic graduation speech for a class of young spiritual warriors in June at the Wasilla Assembly of God, the church in which she was raised.

As governor, Ms. Palin appointed Patrick Donelson, a pastor and fishing guide who helped found a spiritual warfare ministry, to the only seat reserved for members of the clergy on the state’s Suicide Prevention Council.

Bishop Thomas Muthee, the Kenyan preacher shown on the YouTube video anointing her as she ran for governor, is celebrated internationally as an effective spiritual warrior who led a prayer movement that drove a witch out of his town in Kenya. The removal of the witch, Bishop Muthee says, resulted in a drop in crime, alcoholism and traffic accidents.

Religious leaders in Alaska, including Mr. Donelson, declined interviews, with several saying they had been told by the McCain-Palin campaign not to talk to members of the news media.

Russell P. Spittler, provost emeritus at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif., and an eminent scholar of Pentecostalism, said, “Most Christians would accept the view that there are forces and powers in the world that oppose Christian virtues.” But, Mr. Spittler added, “Spiritual warfare makes a religion of identifying demons by names and ZIP codes.”

Y'mean, like, "Beelzebub, 07078?"

Critics say the goal of the spiritual warfare movement is to create a theocracy. Bruce Wilson, a researcher for Talk2Action, a Web site that tracks religious groups, said: “One of the imperatives
of the movement is to achieve worldly power, including political control. Then you can more effectively drive out the demons. The ultimate goal is to purify the earth.”

The article does assure us that it sounds scarier than it is. After the
brouhaha over Terri Schiavo, which included a confrontation between the
Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the local sheriff, that is no reassurance at all.

Noted and thanks Blue !
This whole election has been the dirtiest I have ever seen in my 64 years on this planet thanks to the Republican Party and their Rovian tactic's!
Now they have stooped to a new low of inciting the crazies and the racists to come out of the woodwork and do their nasty deeds .The news a few weeks back about a 58 year old woman Chicago Obama supporter knocked to the ground and hit in the head by a man who thought she was an ACRON worker registering voters and to the latest news of two skin heads who planned on killing over one hundred people and making an attempt on Obama's life makes me sick to my stomach.
McCain and Palin can be blamed for these actions by these crazy people because they have deliberately incited these kinds of people to commit these acts by using fear and smears to rile these people into a frenzy .How any decent humane beings can vote for McCain and Palin knowing that they are inciting these people to do these awful deeds is beyond my understanding .
I read that Palin was a racist awhile back and it seems with this low she stoops to at these rallies that she most definately is a racist and a very dangerous person.McCain is no better for stooping to the same lows in desperation to try and win this election. Thankfully there are enough none racist intelligent people in this country who abhor this kind of thing and are totally turned off by McCain and Palin and the ignorance and hate they generate.

Linda, it looks like it'll only be getting worse; McCain has not denounced the behavior of his supporters as he said he would.

plot news sweeps suspect's Tenn. hometown. Remember, this is the second
skinhead plot to assassinate Obama. The Colorado Republican, Bushevik
U.S. Attorney Refused to Prosecute Another One During the Denver
Convention. Meanwhile, McCain and Palin Fan the Flames of Racism with
Coded Appeals to Openly Racist Crowds.

and we should trust our government protective services that we pay? they are protecting "that one" all right -he's called the prince, power, and ruler of the air -HaSatan -to deny it is ignorance or just a damn lie. don't let these couple of arrests fool you -they are only crumbs that fell off the cake -use the little guy to appease the crowd -a cover up for the much bigger picture of evil they represent.

"Mean" Girls

Sarah Palin knows why women don't like her — and, no, it's not because (as adviser Rick Davis asserted) she's pretty, competent and happy. She thinks women aren't flocking to McCain-Palin because, she says, the media puts "a kind of spin on the my record or my positions." Would those be the positions on pay equity, abortion, health care, taxes, the environment, energy exploration, foreign policy or who should pay for the forensic exams after a woman is raped? Yeah, thought so. [Think Progress, ABC]



Is that clear enough for you?
