Ripping the Mask Off

First, watch the video (via Blogger Interrupted):

Then read Blue Texan (emphasis in original):

It’s easy to see why McPalin keeps talking about Ayers and why their minions keep saying “Barack Hussein Obama.” And it’s clear now that those shouts of “kill him!” and “terrorist!” were not anomalies.

But I’m sure Peggy Noonan thinks this is all “fine.” Just the base talking to the base, eh Peg?

Meanwhile, the Politico’s Jonathan Martin absurdly insists:

McCain has not called Obama “a terrorist.”

That’s because he doesn’t have to. Ever hear of innuendo or guilt by association, Jon?

As we know, Jonathan Martin isn’t the only one who hasn’t.

    You are right. tas is right. I was wrong.

    I discount raincoat man, as he falls somewhere on a line between conspiracy theorist and mentally imbalanced person, and therefore I am slow to condemn him.

    However, we have young man in ballcap, and Mindy Green, and we may as well throw in Mindy’s girlfriend.

    Do you think these three believe Barack has committed an act of terror? I’m guessing they do not believe that.

    Do you think they believe all Muslims are terrorists, and Barack is a Muslim who is just biding his time until he can practice his religious craft? I’m guessing this must be what they believe.

    I’m surprised. Three is a small sample size, yet the seeming societal functionality of the three points out the wrongheadedness of my expressions such as “Who in the danged world thinks Barack is a terrorist”, and “ridiculous.” I was wrong. Some people think Barack is a terrorist.

    Next step is to help gcotharn see how McCain and Palin’s speeches are encouraging people like this to think it’s okay to say things like this (and more important, believe things like this).

    This is flippin’ hilarious.

    I got the impression that the persons being interviewed were just telling the interviewer what they thought he’d like to hear them say. The video features a bunch of soundbites from people who were probably all playing around.

    I’d tell the guy that I thought Barack Obama personally blew up the WTC complex. Sarcastically, of course. If he appeared to have a lick of sense I’d also tell him what I really think. And then he could edit it as he saw fit. Who knows what he’d keep and what he’d leave out?

    That’s a “mob”? Whatever.

    Bryan, not everyone is an idiot.

    “Holy crap!” Heh.

    Since, as best I can figure, some number of functioning citizens are making this connection:
    Obama = Muslim = terrorist,

    therefore it’s fair to say what you(Kathy) are saying:
    “McCain and Palin’s speeches are encouraging people like this to think it’s okay to say things like this (and more important, believe things like this).”

    I don’t want to mislead anyone into thinking I will agree with assertions beyond this point. But, for now, we can bask in the mutual agreement! 🙂
