The McCain Campaign: A Threat to Democracy and Peace

It is Time to Get Tough With Them! Enough! Basta!

It is an understatement of the understatement of the millenium to say I am in an outrage. Although some of my closest associates would say that I am in a perpetual outrage, nevertheless, my amazing capacity for tolerance, humanitarianism, and liberalism can only go so far. The McCain campaign has crossed the lines of tolerance, decency, respect, and acceptability.

First, the McCain campaign is arresting and attacking voter registration organizations across the country and throwing these workers in jail on trumped up charges of fraud. They dare to cast aspersions upon and to question the validity of the heroic voter registration campaign waged by the activist brothers of ACORN and their thousands of hired canvassers hired from homeless shelters and paid for by your tax dollars to raise support for Sen. Obama. How dare they attack our democratic process by demanding that every ballot be checked for accuracy and valdity. What kind of Nazi sentiments would declare that the Cleveland Browns football team, Mickey Mouse, people that cannot read or write or have trouble breathing, or seventy-two people named "Joe Smith" do not have the right to excercize their democratic right to vote Democratic? This is an outrage! They actually demand verification of these millions of new voters! Yea right! Checking ID's, verification and pursuing supposed false registrations is just another sleazy attempt by the McCain campaign to completely destroy democracy in America.

But things are getting worse than that. An expert journalist at the HuffPo said in article that he heard at a P-P-P-Palin rally (I am trying not to be vulgar) reported that he heard somebody say "KILL HIM!" when Palin dared let The Name cross her vile, evil-speaking lips. She should not even be allowed to say his name, much less allowing her supporters to scream "Kill Him!" The Media dutifully reported it and Obama brought it up in the third debate as a grave national security issue. Never mind if the security team working the event, and the FBI investigators could not corroborate the claim, saying that what was said was apparently "Tell them!" The mere suggestion that it was said is enough! These people are utterly dangerous. Plus everyone knows that while the FBI and security people are utterly untrustworthy, the Media would never lie. I am outraged! Something must be done!

Obama boldly and unashamedly said today, that he is outraged at FoxNews for its unfair reporting against him. I am even more outraged. Though Obama is outspending the McCain campaign by 3 to 1 in most areas, (only 2 to 1 in the rest) he is only 5 points ahead instead of 20, due to the biased, mean, reporting of Fox on non-issues like a few harmless guys who live in his neighborhood, his alleged lack of experience, his plan to tax a few greedy people who don't want to share their wealth, ETC., ETC. So what if it may be true that NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, CNN, and all the newspapers and national news magazines are unabashedly campaigning for Obama. That is only fair and balanced because it balances out the unfairness at "fair and balanced" FoxNews. Americans need to hear the truth of how Obama will save the economy, give everyone health care, lower the debt, help the economy by taxing the wealthy and the greedy corporations, and bring world peace and general wonderfullness to earth. At a time like this we cannot have all the news media saying one thing, and then one single media outlet saying a bunch of lies against it. We need unity, to speak of one mind and one voice with one vision. Fox is trying to bring division and confusion and needs to either start reporting like the rest of the Media or be shut down for the sake of democracy and truth.

Finally, in one of the most outrageous exhibits of violence ever in a U.S campaign, McCain thugs decided they would march down the streets of the usually peaceful, progressive street of the upper West side of NYC, and actually carry McCain-Palin signs! It is clear the whole plan was to offend the leftist sensibilities of the enlightened, progressive denizens of this oasis of light and culture. This was like having the KKK march down into Harlem, or the Jews in downtown Tehran. As can be seen on the video I posted on the left column, and as was sinisterly intended by the McCain campaign, the tolerant, peace-loving people were provoked and incited into a near riot by the aggresive, brownshirt behavior of the McCain marchers of their territory.One poor democracy-loving, Democratic pacifist was so offended by their behavior that he bravely chose to take on one of the fascist marchers one-on-one, taking the signs, tearing them up, and hitting one thug on the head repeatedly. It didn't matter that the thug was an older woman of sixty, she is a danger to society and our hope for Change and world peace. Now the poor man who was provoked into hitting her sits unjustly in a jail. This is an outrage and we demand his immediate release and the dropping of all charges! We are raising money for his bail so he can go home to his mother who needs him desperately.

Although I agree with Obama that silly symbolic gestures like saying the Pledge, wearing a flag pen, or putting your hand over your head instead of, say, your crotch, are obsolete, I still love America. But, like the Obamas have repeatedly said, that love is not for whatever she was or is, but what she could be. These outrages from the McCain campaign clearly point to an end to democracy as we know it and a threat to what we can be, the change that we hope for which we are because, well, we have been hoping for it. A news outlet that dares to report things that cause confusion and doubt, marchers that are violent just by virtue of holding signs up, screams in rallies that purposefully re made to sound like something that it maybe isn't - this is all unacceptable violence on the part of the McCain campaign and is worse than even the supposed attacks by supposed oppressed groups on a few towers. All we lost on that day was a couple of ugly buildings and a few thousand money-grubbing capitalists and imperialists. This is much worse. We are losing democracy!
