Excuse me, but where have you been getting your information from, ‘Now Brown Cow’? The political climate in Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan is – in no way imaginable – stable. In Afghanistan alone, for example, President Kharzai was almost blown up – just before his inauguration. Assassinations and attempts thereof are far more common than in the west, especially of opposition members of government.
Iraq alone has had dozens of assassinations since the provisional government was installed, before the first elections; not to mention the assassinations of Shia politicians who were running for office, killed by car bombs in ‘safe areas’ policed by Iraqis.
Do some research of your own. Read a book. Stop believing what you hear on Rupert P. Murdoch’s vanity press – Fixed Noise – it is NOT a news channel – it is Info-Porn.
If you don’t rot your brain with info-porn you are less likely to make broad generalizations about things that you know little about in a comments section … like, ‘Obama’s a racist.’ – see, that’s just idiotic – his mother was white and he was raised by his white grand-parents – Obama is a product of both cultures, black and white – it is who he is, which is why he is so remarkable. The comment, by the way, came from Glenn Beck – of Fixed Noise – Info-Porn’s talking head, clown idiot du jour.
Thus endeth the lesson. QED.
Wie viel ist aufzuleiden!
Well said Brown Cow. It IS amazing that all those terrorists never seem to target the politicians! (aka the very people whose policies drive them to acts of terror including suicide bombs).
Aufzuleiden: Obama IS a racist….I believe you would benefit from a little research yourself. There are plenty of interviews and radio show appearances from his Chicago days to clue you in. Instead of just drinking the kool-aid, follow your own advise and do a little digging.
WendyWasp: your assertion that Obama is a racist demonstrates one thing: you have no idea what true racism is, nor do you understand what it means to live with racism in contemporary society (identifying yourself as a ‘wasp’ certainly attests to that).
As a point of fact, I have seen some of the early interviews of Obama, from before he ran for the Illinois senate, and there was absolutely nothing in the manner or content of Obama’s speech that indicated anything less than an incredibly intelligent, self-possessed, extraordinarily intelligent young man who was keenly interested in every aspect of life as he was involved in it at the time.
The real problem with Barack Obama is that he is too open – his affect is genuinely overt and extroverted in a way that people are unused to seeing in their politicians and, quite frankly, many people cannot figure what to do about this issue. When someone is straight with you, answers your questions and provides intelligent answers that cannot be impeached the only way to attack him is to use things that have absolutely nothing to do with the issues at hand; the claims of racism have only come with the increasingly desperate debate on health-care – a debate that was side-tracked by the ‘race’ issue at the end of the Wednesday press conference dedicated to health-care.
The problem lies with the right-wing pundits and media-whores like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh who are so paranoid about living under the ‘rule’ of a black man that they have contrived a story-line that includes Obama turning the United States into another Soviet Union, with slavery and other touches that the Soviets hadn’t tried. That, my dear Wasp, is racism. They are attacking Obama out of the fear of the black man in the White house.
In their eyes the only black men that should be in the White house should be serving the beer, not drinking it in the Rose Garden.
Perhaps it is you who should check the content of your drink-box. Currently I’m sipping on cold, clear water – my favourite drink. You, on the other hand, are spewing the lies that the trim of the fringe cling to since they have nothing else – except a totally debunked birth certificate conspiracy theory to ram their faces against. That’s alright though, idiots with flattened noses is a grand look – don’t you think?
Obama is a died in the wool Jackboot German Zionist – he does everything they ever wanted and he’s doing absolutely nothing about Israel…..just following the game by issuing orders to stop the settlements, stop building just like J Street told him to do
But Obama isn’t actually stopping them…………..he’s just pretending to score points like any sellout
