Sarah Palin ,Glenn Beck,Lou Dobbs Conspiracy Theorists, Birthers & Racists & others Put America in Peril

Insane Birthers Refuse to go away and now are writing what they believe to be clever songs? They may appear funny and ridiculous but some Americans are buying it.

Note they make sure Obama's middle name is used which these right-wing racist nuts see as significant. Just more slightly veiled racism .

By claiming Obama is not a legitimate president these right-wingers believe they are free to attack Obama in any way they can even though America is still supposedly at War. But now that doesn't matter because it is Obama's war and no longer Bush and Cheney's and the Republicans WAR.

During the Bush years these right-wingers claimed that it was inappropriate and unAmerican to criticize a president when the country was at war so they were faced with a contradiction which was resolved for them by the Birther movement. Birthers make various claims such as that Obama is the Manchurian candidate of the New World Order , the Illuminati, or the Soviets or the Chinese or that he is a secret Muslim trying to conquer America and the West for Islam or that he is in fact The Anti-Christ or is a racist who hates all White people.

Also see article by David michael Green in which he too like Olbermann and others is shocked by the gullibility of so many Americans in believing whatever the Right-wing nuts tell them and the possibility of violence as these angry Americans become part of an Americanized style "Brown Shirts" Movement to undermine not just Obama but American Democratic institutions and Democracy itself.

"My 1933 Nightmare" by David Michael Green , August 11, 2009 by

The events of recent decades have been ominous.

The events of recent weeks more so.

It's not so much, I guess, the visage of obese, over-fifty, white men angrily wrecking even the tattered remnants of the democratic process in this country that is most disturbing. We've seen that before.

I think it's the willful ignorance translated into incoherent, and in fact ironically self-defeating, rage that I find most discouraging. Can we really live in a country populated by so many fools, people who can so readily, proudly and belligerently be made into tools of their own destruction? Can the greatest political, economic, cultural and military power on the world's stage possibly be so incredibly backward at its core?

...This should not be taken lightly. There is huge anger out there, being stoked incessantly by those who profit from it, in one way or another. Most frightening of all, it is, as far as I can see, completely impervious to rational discourse. Suppose you could put a mountain of indisputable evidence in front of the eyes of those who believe Obama is seeking to murder seniors. Does anyone think any of these folks could actually be persuaded to abandon that shockingly absurd fallacy?

And this is, at the end of the day, the scariest aspect of all concerning the current political moment. America now possesses a massive cohort of people who have simply transcended rational discourse – the sine qua non of democracy, and the real deity worshiped by Enlightenment figures like those who founded the country. Two-and-a-half centuries later, and we're moving rapidly backwards, toward the seventeenth century, and away from democracy, rule of law and the marketplace of ideas, debated and thoughtfully considered.

Everybody talks about fascism nowadays, not least those on the right who remarkably manage to call Barack Obama a fascist in the same breath as they label him a socialist. The term has been beaten into near meaninglessness from ubiquitousness of application. (Could this be another extremely clever semantics ploy of the right-wing marketing machine, taking the term out of use now that it is legitimately applicable, by over- and ab-using it? Damn, these guys are good.)

Still, I've seen the video clips from the congressional constituent meetings last week. I saw the ones from the Sarah Palin rallies in 2008. I remember the 2000 Brooks Brothers riot, one of the most despicable acts in American history, which resulted – because of one of the most cowardly acts in American history – in shutting down vote-counting in Miami. I saw at least two purple-hearted American war heroes turned into national security threats by a team of cowards who avoided war when it was their turn. None of the rabble on the right could make the Grand Canyon size leap to see that for what it plainly was. Today I see the incoherent rage, the senseless foaming at the mouth that not only doesn't fit reality, but in fact runs completely contrary to it. I see the current attempts to intimidate the government and to shut down the discussion of issues.

And I have to ask, do those people not resemble Brown Shirts more than anything else one can bring to mind?(Emphasis added)

And is our current political moment not beginning to stink of Berlin, 1933?

Does God Want Healthcare Reform? Aug. 10,2009

Chip Reid glosses over the fact that up until recently most Americans were in favor of Healthcare reform but have become less so in large part because of the scare tactics, fear mongering, misinformation and lies bein promulgated by Public Relations firms working for the Healthcare Industry, Big Pharma, the Medical Insurance Industry and the Republican Party and the Right-wing extremists and the Religious Right.

So CBS joins Fox News and CNN with attacks on the Obama administration and hyping the anger at Town Hall Meetings as representing a grass roots movement on the part of the majority of Americans. We know that a loud and persistent minority with the aid of the media can over rule the majority or overrule what might be best for a country.
CBS in the Tank for The Republicans and Healthcare Industry

With growing opposition and increased tensions mounting at town hall meetings, President Obama spoke out in an effort to defend his healthcare reform proposals. Chip Reid reports.

CBS uses representative from the extremist religious Right organization The Heritage Fondation as if they were some sort of non-partisan group without an agenda . The Heritage Foundation is anti-liberal, anti-government, pro-Republican, Anti-abortion, anti-Gay- only in America would such an extremist organization be reprented as a Voice of Reason '

Canadian Corporation Tim Hortons backs out of anti-gay marriage event, CBC Aug. 10, 2009

Tim Hortons has reversed its decision to sponsor a Rhode Island rally held by a U.S. group that opposes same-sex marriage, after encountering fierce criticism for the move.

The August 16 event, organized by the National Organization for Marriage, is billed as a "Celebrate Marriage & Family Day." Held in suburban Providence, the rally is to include speeches, a cookout and a ceremony in which married couples are invited to renew their vows.

The National Organization for Marriage is a non-profit organization "with a mission to protect marriage and the faith communities that sustain it," according to its website.

and so it goes,
