Sarah Palin’s America

Hat-tip to Washington Post columnist Colby King for spotlighting an Al Jazeera English news report about a Sarah Palin rally in Ohio.

Check out what some working-class white folks be saying about Barack Obama. (One old fella actually uses the word “nigra.”)

Could've been worse, I suppose.

Al Jazeera is a great news organization. Remember how they highlighted the racism against Obama in Kentucky (or was it West Virginia?) during the primaries? No American news organization would do such a thing.

Al Jeezy brings it!

Wooooowww. Just wow.

And that woman actually said "Obama thinks us white people are trash". I think I'm done till mid-November.

Okay, this ALWAYS happens every time I play a youtube video on your blog: The video stops playing after two seconds.

It doesn't seem to happen anywhere else--just your blog.

What's up?

^ Beats me. You're the first to bring it up.

Can we neuter these dumb fucks? And put Palin in jail for rampant stupidity? Yikes!

This is the kind of thing that every 'undecided' voter needs to see. These really are the only reasons to vote for John McCain...

I agree with Thembi. And after they see this they need to go to a theater and watch Religulous. I could never figure out what Bill Maher was soooo mad about.

After watching that movie I totally get it. He's furious that so many Americans choose those individuals who are going to make choices impacting our country and the world based on their religious beliefs.

The religious freedom we enjoy here has become extremely dangerous to our future. The visit to the Holy Land Experience in Orlando Florida freaked me out.

Just like watching this piece did.

The little voice in my head just keeps muttering - Really? Seriously? They aren't kidding?

They are not kidding.

I didn't realize that Obama thought I was trash. Damn you, Obama! Go McCain! (raises thumbs as far as they go, which is about lower-chest high.)

Undercover Black Man said...

^ You're mean!

Lyndon said...

I keed! I keed!
