389 Years of Slavery and We Still Can’t Let It Go

My choice for a candidate isn’t in the top two running for the Presidential election this year but I stumbled across this on YouTube, and was simply floored! These are real people at a pro-Palin rally speaking about the “competition” she faces from Presidential nominee Barack Obama.

The quotes, if you didn’t catch them… were nothing short of shocking and ignorant:

“I’m afraid if he wins, the blacks will take over. He’s not a Christian! This is a Christian nation! What is our country gonna end up like?”

Perhaps it will end up like… the melting pot it was always destined to become?

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

This is a famous line from a poem, “The New Colossus,” by the nineteenth-century American poet Emma Lazarus.

Sound familiar? Do you know where you’ve heard that before? That’s right, it’s emblazoned on the plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty.

The New Colossus

“When you got a Nigger running for president, you need a first stringer. He’s definitely a second stringer.”

Really? You actually still use the word “nigger” in everyday speech?

“He seems like a sheep – or a wolf in sheep’s clothing to be honest with you. And I believe Palin – she’s filled with the Holy Spirit, and I believe she’s gonna bring honesty and integrity to the White House.”

“He’s related to a known terrorist, for one.”

Which terrorist would that be?

“He is friends with a terrorist of this country!”

McCain? Bush? Cheney? Palin? Rove? Who exactly are you referring to here?

“He must support terrorists! You know, uh, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it must be a duck. And that to me is Obama.”

“Just the whole, Muslim thing, and everything, and everybody’s still kinda – a lot of people have forgotten about 9/11, but… I dunno, it’s just kinda… a little unnerving.”

“Obama and his wife, I’m concerned that they could be anti-white. That he might hide that.”

It would be kind of hard to hide the fact that you’re not white… when you’re black, wouldn’t it?

“I don’t like the fact that he thinks us white people are trash… because we’re not!”

Are you sure about that? I’m willing to bet a large cross-section of the US population would think you’re “white trash” too, and they’re white.

If you want to take control of an election, the best way to do it is to make sure you have a completely uninformed populace. Make sure your constituents are uneducated and do not have access to lots of sources of media (newspapers, radio, television, Internet).

Here’s something a bit more refreshing:
