Update: 9:17 pm Monday August 25, 2008

The Democratic Convention has begun let us hope that the riffs in the party will be healed and that Hillary Clinton will act in a reasonable and honorable manner. Let us all wish Barack Obama all the best. Maybe he will shed a little light into the cynical politics of America and show how bankrupt the mean spirited ideology of the Republicans and the Neocons really is and that America is better than that. Maybe a change for the better is on Americas horizon.

Dr. Jerome Corsi author of the error rife smear book " THE OBAMA NATION " a book to please Republicans, Neocons , Hate Radio talk show hosts , FOX NEWS and other Racists and Bigots. At what point does Free Speech become "HATE SPEECH ". To these people all views and opinions no matter how divorced from reality , no matter how unreasonable, no matter how hateful , no matter how racist, no matter how bigoted.

Anyway the attack dogs have been unleashed on Barack Obama and his bid to become president. Well at least now we see all these so called reasonable conservatives for what they are - bigots and racists out to save white America and they seem not much better than their Klan Bretheren.

Dr. Jerome Corsi has published a book about Obama entitled "THE Obama Nation" which appears to be just a long winded rant and attack piece on Barack Obama. Even the title which is a play on words as in "Abomination" appears to be an attack right out of the gutter. The book appeals to the Republicans and to the Far Right Racists in America to whom John McCain wants to reach out to.Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck , Bill O'Reilley and FOXNEWS are promoting the book as if it were some sort of scholarly treatise or in depth investigative reporting. But the book is filled with lies, confabulations, fantasies and other nonsense invented by Corsi's wild racist hate-filled imagination.In their hysterical & paranoid manner they argue that voting in Obama a black man as president will lead to the destruction of America. Surely Obama couldn't possibly be worse than the last eight disastrous years of the "White Good ole Boy" from Racist Texas George Bush and his handlers Karl Rove, Dick Cheney , William Kristol , Donald Rumsfeld and their token minority personalities Condoleeza Rice, Alberto Gonzales, Colin Powell & John Yoo. Pure Oreo Black or brown on the outside but white fantical conservatives on the inside who like Michelle Malkin hate being Non-white .

One of the questions to be raised about Corsi's attacks in his book Obama Nation is whether the Republicans and John McCain are in fact behind this nasty piece of fabrication. We know the far right is in favor of this attack as is FoxNews & the right-wing hate radio personalities such as Rush Limbaugh. We also know Corsi was involved in the notorious Swiftboat attack piece on John Kerry. The Republicans including George Bush, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney , Condoleeza Rice and Colin Powell saw nothing wrong with those false accusations which were made against John Kerry. The Neocons do believe in playing dirty politics which they learned from Professor Leo Strauss and the likes of Irving Kristol , George F. Will and William F. Buckley Jr. since they believe in winning at any cost. They believe in the use of what they call " The Noble Lie " by which one lies to the public inorder to gain power and to make up more lies to further their ideology and to enrich themselves and their friends who are of a "superior breed" to the rest of the Nation's Citizenry. It is difficult to fight such lies since the public is being misinformed by by the media who are in thrall of the Neoconservatives and tend to believe everything those in power in the Bush administration tells them. As each of these lies are revealed at a latter date the public becomes cynical and or complacent and so are unable to distinguish among the various voices speaking to them through the media.

Jerome Corsi: Smear Peddler has a Long History of Lying

Countdown takes a look at who Jerome Corsi really is and reviews past bigotted and offensive remarks by Corsi.

Corsi recently published what the Obama camp is calling a "Book of Lies" reminiscent of the Swift Boat attack on John Kerry, penned by Corsi in 2004.

Responding quickly, the Obama camp issued a 41 page booklet of facts on accusations made by Corsi:

and the Home Page is:

Dr. Jerome Corsi a fanatical racist is taken seriously by FOX NEWS. Dr. Corsi is given time on Hannity & Colmes and on Glenn Beck & Bill O'Reilley etc.

Obama Nation: Bob Beckel vs Jerome Corsi!

Anyway at one McCain Rally the commentator made an unbelievable statement about Barack Obama by comparing Tiger Woods to Senator John McCain.

" They can have their Tiger Woods we've got Sen. John McCain "

who is "they" ( African-Americans) and who is the "we"( White Americans )like Archie Bunker. Do they think the Archie Bunker stereotype is somehow a true blue American whom they want their children to emulate . One gets the feeling that they believe that " political Correctness" is just a fad which includes notions of Multiculturalism or cultural sensitivity and that they these poor white males are being victimized because they can't express their deep-seated bigoted and racists notions outloud without being criticized.In the end what they don't want is for Black people or other visible minorities or those of different faiths to be treated as if they were in fact equal to white Christians. McCain and his supporters at times sound as if they are still upset about the end of racial segregation let alone allowing a Black man to run for President and just possibly become president of the United States of America. For instance when John F. Kennedy in 1960 was running for president a smear campaign was undertaken pointing to the fact that Kennedy was a Catholic and therefore according to many protestant Americans they claimed that he could not be trusted because they argues his allegiance would be first to the Pope & the Vatican.So Republicans will use whatever fact or inuendo they can to try to smear a Democratic candidate. The Republicans also didn't like Kennedy because he was in favor of equal rights for African-Americans . Now their worst fear is coming true that of the possibility of an African-American becoming president.

John McCain Racism has become a part of his nature and personality so he can't help it??? Having been a POW he has since then hated all Asians and just about anyone else who's not white, male or American or Christian and so it goes...

John McCain's racist remark very troubling

Thursday, March 2, 2000 By KATIE HONG

On his campaign bus recently, Sen. John McCain told reporters, "I hated the gooks. I will hate them as long as I live." Although McCain said he was referring only to his prison guards, there are many reasons why his use of the word "gook" is offensive and alarming.

It is offensive because by using a racial epithet that has historically been used to demean all Asians to describe his captors, McCain failed to make a distinction between his torturers and an entire racial group.

It is alarming because a major candidate for president publicly used a racial epithet, refused to apologize for doing so and remains a legitimate contender.

Contrary to McCain's attempt to narrowly define "gook" to mean only his "sadistic" captors, this term has historically been used to describe all Asians. McCain said that "gook" was the most "polite" term he could find to describe his captors, but because it is simply a pejorative term for Asians, he insulted his captors simply by calling them "Asians" -- a clearly disturbing message. To the Asian American community, the term is akin to the racist word "nigger." A friend of mine, a white male Vietnam veteran, pointed out that veterans, especially Vietnam veterans, know how spiteful the term "gook" is. It has everything to do with labeling someone as "other," the enemy and yellow. McCain sent the message that all Asians are foreigners and remain forever the "other" and the enemy.

The perception of Asians as "foreigners" or "the other" isn't new. This sentiment is what led to passage of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 and the Japanese American internment during World War II. The internment of Japanese Americans is now recognized as one of the worst civil rights violations in our country's history and a powerful lesson in what can happen when race alone is used as a test for loyalty or who is defined as an American.

and so it goes, actually it's gettting downright ugly,as the Republicans appeal to the worse traits of White Conservative Americans!!!

But have the Clintons also been fear mongering against Barack Obama , at times they appear to have:

and from Wst Virginia we get a view of the Clintons as they appear to appeal to West Virginia's Voters racist views:
Bill Clinton tells Democrats in West Virginia that he and Hillary better represent their values than does Barack Obama. Which values their prejudices, bigotry and racism ???
West Virginia Keeps Distance From Obama/ Financial Times May 11, 2008 by Andrew Ward

Like most people in Mingo County, West Virginia, Leonard Simpson is a lifelong Democrat. But given a choice between Barack Obama and John McCain in November, the 67-year-old retired coalminer would vote Republican.

“I heard that Obama is a Muslim and his wife’s an atheist,” said Mr Simpson, drawing on a cigarette outside the fire station in Williamson, a coalmining town of 3,400 people surrounded by lush wooded hillsides.

Occupying a swathe of the Appalachian Mountains on the threshold between the Bible Belt and the Rust Belt, West Virginia is a swing state that voted twice for George W. Bush but backed Democrats in six of the eight prior presidential elections.
No Democrat has been elected to the White House without carrying West Virginia since 1916, yet Mr Obama appears to have little chance of winning there in November. Recent opinion polls indicate that Mrs Clinton would narrowly beat Mr McCain in the state but Mr Obama would lose by nearly 20 percentage points.

West Virginia is hostile territory for Mr Obama because it has few of the African-Americans and affluent, college-educated whites who provide his strongest support. The state has the lowest college graduation rate in the US, the second lowest median household income, and one of the highest proportions of white residents, at 96 per cent.

A visit to Mingo County, a Democratic stronghold in the heart of the Appalachian coalfields, reveals the scale of Mr Obama’s challenge – not only in West Virginia but in white, working-class communities across the US. With a gun shop on its main street and churches dotted throughout the town, Williamson is the kind of community evoked by Mr Obama’s controversial comments last month about “bitter” small-town voters who “cling to guns or religion”.

“If he is the nominee, the Democrats have no chance of winning West Virginia,” said Missy Endicott, a 40- year-old school administrator. “He doesn’t understand ordinary Americans.”

Ms Endicott was among roughly 500 people who crammed into the Williamson Fire Department building on Friday to attend a rally by Bill Clinton, the former president. He told them his wife represented “people like you, in places like this”, and urged voters to turn out in record numbers on Tuesday to send a message to the “higher-type people” who were trying to force her out of the race.

Local leaders said Mr Clinton was the most important visitor to Williamson since John F. Kennedy passed through during the 1960 election campaign. Mr Kennedy’s victory in the West Virginia primary that year was a crucial step towards proving his electability as the first Catholic president. Nearly five decades later, the state appears less willing to help Mr Obama break down barriers to the White House.
None of the 22 Democrats interviewed by the Financial Times at the Clinton rally would commit themselves to voting for Mr Obama if he became the nominee, and half said they definitely would not. The depth of opposition is particularly striking considering that Mingo County is one of the most Democratic places in West Virginia, having cast about 85 per cent of its votes for the party in the 2006 midterm elections. If Mr Obama cannot win there in November, he has little chance of carrying the state.

We can only hope for the sake of America and the Democratic party and the world that the Clintons and their supporters can put all of this behind them and unite to back Barack Obama as the Presidential nominee and get out in force to ensure he is elected the next president of the United States. Hopefully at that point the rest of the world can give a sigh of relief as the War Mongering will be put to rest in favor of diplomacy . And maybe he can help to restore the integrity of the United Nations and other International bodies. Then if military intervention is neede it will be after all peaceful means have been tried and that such intervention will not be forced upon the UN but will be a result of a consensus based upon good intelligence and not a pack of lies and propaganda.

and so it goes,
