Young Republicans pose as Obama supporters to misrepresent Obama

September 16, 2008

Are Republicans supposed to be the party of “Christian family values?”  Are they supposed to be the party of “small town America” with “small town values?”  Isn’t this the party that James Dobson and evangilicals align with?  If so, then how are they tolerating such dishonest tactics to win an election?  On top of the smear ads that John McCain has been running (ads so dishonest that even Karl Rove and Fox News acknowledged they were misleading), young Republicans appear to join the Obama team and make FALSE calls to voters on behalf of Barack Obama.

From their facebook group, Clandestine Young Republican Obama Neighbor to Neighbor Infiltration Club!, they write:

Folks, thanks to Obama’s web 2.0 platform, anyone can play the CONTACT AN OBAMA VOTER in PA game!

Here’s what you Republicans need to do:
1. Go to BarackObama.com and register (it takes about 30sec.)
2. Sign up for Neighbor to Neighbor with your Obama-identity
3. Google a random city in PA (Not Pittsburgh or Philly), get the address and phone number for a local pizzeria or business.
4. START MAKING CALLS FOR BARACK!

Keep in mind when making these calls, that you’re not trying to persuade people to vote for John McCain. You’re also not trying to lie to them either.

Your goal should be to present the clear facts about Obama’s ultra-liberal record – everything from his 500% tax increase on firearms he proposed in Illinois to his plan of redistribution of wealth from the rich down to those who are poor. Find the talking points (I will soon post some of my own) and smilingly deliver the great message that make up Obama’s policies!

It also doesn’t hurt to make fun of John McCain while you’re at it. Here’s a good one:
“Have you seen Obama’s new commercial about John McCain? …ha… It’s so funny! John McCain can’t even use a computer – what an idiot. I mean he can’t even type on a keyboard… He says it’s because he lost control of his fine motor skills when he was beaten as a POW! Isn’t that ridiculous! I think it’s funny.”

Remember, this is serious. You don’t want to ever lie about Obama. His liberal policies are enough to scare away Independents. Also, while you want to keep it authentic by sounding like an elitist snob or hippie college student, you must realize that real people are on the other end and you must treat them with respect.

Good luck and SHHH!!! We want this to remain a secret. Clandestine operations such as these shouldn’t get out!

How sad.  I guess Obama was right.  Republicans really can’t run on the issues this year, so they are resorting to smears, deceptions, and out right lying.  Some “values” huh?

White Privilege

September 14, 2008

White Privilege
By Tim Wise

For those who still can’t grasp the concept of white privilege, or who are constantly looking for some easy-to-understand examples of it, perhaps this list will help.

White privilege is when you can get pregnant at seventeen like Bristol Palin and everyone is quick to insist that your life and that of your family is a personal matter, and that no one has a right to judge you or your parents, because “every family has challenges,” even as black and Latino families with similar “challenges” are regularly typified as irresponsible, pathological and arbiters of social decay.

White privilege is when you can call yourself a “fuckin’ redneck,” like Bristol Palin’s boyfriend does, and talk about how if anyone messes with you, you’ll “kick their fuckin’ ass,” and talk about how you like to “shoot shit” for fun, and still be viewed as a responsible, all-American boy (and a great son-in-law to be) rather than a thug.

White privilege is when you can attend four different colleges in six years like Sarah Palin did (one of which you basically failed out of, then returned to after making up some coursework at a community college), and no one questions your intelligence or commitment to achievement, whereas a person of color who did this would be viewed as unfit for college, and probably someone who only got in in the first place because of affirmative action.

White privilege is when you can claim that being mayor of a town smaller than most medium-sized colleges, and then Governor of a state with about the same number of people as the lower fifth of the island of Manhattan, makes you ready to potentially be president, and people don’t all piss on themselves with laughter, while being a black U.S. Senator, two-term state Senator, and constitutional law scholar, means you’re “untested.”

White privilege is being able to say that you support the words “under God” in the pledge of allegiance because “if it was good enough for the founding fathers, it’s good enough for me,” and not be immediately disqualified from holding office–since, after all, the pledge was written in the late 1800s and the “under God” part wasn’t added until the 1950s–while believing that reading accused criminals and terrorists their rights (because, ya know, the Constitution, which you used to teach at a prestigious law school requires it), is a dangerous and silly idea only supported by mushy liberals.

White privilege is being able to be a gun enthusiast and not make people immediately scared of you. White privilege is being able to have a husband who was a member of an extremist political party that wants your state to secede from the Union, and whose motto was “Alaska first,” and no one questions your patriotism or that of your family, while if you’re black and your spouse merely fails to come to a 9/11 memorial so she can be home with her kids on the first day of school, people immediately think she’s being disrespectful.

White privilege is being able to make fun of community organizers and the work they do–like, among other things, fight for the right of women to vote, or for civil rights, or the 8-hour workday, or an end to child labor–and people think you’re being pithy and tough, but if you merely question the experience of a small town mayor and 18-month governor with no foreign policy expertise beyond a class she took in college–you’re somehow being mean, or even sexist.

White privilege is being able to convince white women who don’t even agree with you on any substantive issue to vote for you and your running mate anyway, because all of a sudden your presence on the ticket has inspired confidence in these same white women, and made them give your party a “second look.”

White privilege is being able to fire people who didn’t support your political campaigns and not be accused of abusing your power or being a typical politician who engages in favoritism, while being black and merely knowing some folks from the old-line political machines in Chicago means you must be corrupt.

White privilege is being able to attend churches over the years whose pastors say that people who voted for John Kerry or merely criticize George W. Bush are going to hell, and that the U.S. is an explicitly Christian nation and the job of Christians is to bring Christian theological principles into government, and who bring in speakers who say the conflict in the Middle East is God’s punishment on Jews for rejecting Jesus, and everyone can still think you’re just a good church-going Christian, but if you’re black and friends with a black pastor who has noted (as have Colin Powell and the U.S. Department of Defense) that terrorist attacks are often the result of U.S. foreign policy and who talks about the history of racism and its effect on black people, you’re an extremist who probably hates America.

White privilege is not knowing what the Bush Doctrine is when asked by a reporter, and then people get angry at the reporter for asking you such a “trick question,” while being black and merely refusing to give one-word answers to the queries of Bill O’Reilly means you’re dodging the question, or trying to seem overly intellectual and nuanced.

White privilege is being able to claim your experience as a POW has anything at all to do with your fitness for president, while being black and experiencing racism is, as Sarah Palin has referred to it, a “light” burden.

And finally, white privilege is the only thing that could possibly allow someone to become president when he has voted with George W. Bush 90 percent of the time, even as unemployment is skyrocketing, people are losing their homes, inflation is rising, and the U.S. is increasingly isolated from world opinion, just because white voters aren’t sure about that whole “change” thing. Ya know, it’s just too vague and ill-defined, unlike, say, four more years of the same, which is very concrete and certain.

White privilege is, in short, the problem.

America’s disgusting double-standard

September 12, 2008

* If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you’re “exotic, different.”
* If you grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers, you’re a quintessential American story.

* If your name is Barack, you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.
* If you name your kids Bristol, Trig, and Track, you’re a maverick.

* If you graduate from Harvard law School, you are unstable.
* If you attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you’re well grounded.

* If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate’s Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran’s Affairs committees, you don’t have any real leadership experience.
* If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you’re qualified to become the country’s second highest ranking executive.

* If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you’re not a real Christian.
* If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you’re a Christian.

* If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.
* If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state’s school system, while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant , you’re very responsible.

* If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family’s values don’t represent America’s.
* If you’re husband is nicknamed “First Dude”, with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn’t register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

OK, *much* clearer now.

(I didn’t write this, just so you know.)


18 Reasons why John McCain is NOT qualified to be President

August 22, 2008

READ THIS FIRST: The following are 6 10 minute videos containing 18 reasons why McCain is unqualified to be Commander in Chief, and he might even be dangerous as one.  The man in this video is older, and you might not care for his music, but if you have patience he actually makes some really good and important points (and observations).  He’s very insightful.  I have the videos listed from parts 2-6, with part 1 at the end because I believe for some people part 1 might seem to drag on a bit instead of getting to the point, so I don’t want anyone discouraged.

I recommend starting with Part 2, 3, OR 4 (in part 4, he gives reasons why McCain might be a mama’s boy, lol!)  Anyway, enjoy, discuss, share!

(NOTE: I also found it really helpful if you listen to these videos in the background while you’re doing something else, rather than just sitting there for an hour watching each one individually.)

MSM LIED! Barack Obama destroyed Iraq “flip flop” accusations back on March 20th

July 7, 2008

CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX News, MSNBC, all of the major networks along with newspapers and pundits have questioned constantly whether Obama flip flopped on the Iraq War.  Above is the full speech Obama gave on the subject back on March 20, 2008.   Oddly, few in the press seem to remember it, because from 10:38 on, Obama takes on similar charges from Hillary Clinton during the primaries.

If you can see the whole thing, please do.  If not, watch 10:38-12:20


Just how shameless are Republicans, who support “family values”?

McCain’s First Wife

McCain’s First wife now, after McCain left her

For multi-million dollar, younger Cindy McCain

Barack Obama never left his wife.  He frequently mentions the importance of the family.
