Bait and Switch

Where is all this hoopla about a mosque at ground zero, the Mexican invasion of the south, and Black Panthers killing "cracker babies" coming from? I can tell you, its bait and switch. We are coming to possibly the most contentious and exciting november election in our generation. Voters all over america are wondering who to vote for. The media began asking republicans what they will change or what their policies will be if they regain control. The answer? .... nothing. Nothing new what so ever. Rep. Steve King suggested not revealing republican strategies because people may study them ... take a minute to think about that. Now republicans are trying to convince people that allowing the Bush tax cuts for the rich to expire, will ruin the economy. In actual fact it will save the economy 690 billion dollars. I said BILLION dollars, over 10 years . These strategies are not working so now we see the age old republican tactic... HEY DONT LOOK THERE, LOOK OVER HERE!!! And we see made up controversies to scare people into voting republican without thinking. So allow me to clear up some "misunder-estimations"....
First and foremost, THERE IS NO MOSQUE PLANNED FOR GROUND ZERO thats a lie, a la Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich and that lunatic Pam Geller. There is however an INTERFAITH Cultural Centre with shop, cafe, library, swimming pool and Mosque planned 3 BLOCKS from ground zero. Despite what Fox Noise eh em, Fox News, has said, the religious leader of this mosque is Imam Rauf. A pro american, liberal muslim who has condemned the 9-11 attacks as a crime. I ask you all this, would there be this much outrage if there was a Christian church planned next to the Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma City? I think not. America thrives on diversity, diversity of people, diversity of race, and diversity of religion. It is the quintessential melting pot. Don't let bigots like Palin, Gingrich, Hannity and Geller who have ulterior motives, steal this from you. President Obama and Mayor Bloomberg have absolutely no legal standing to block the building of this cultural centre because your constitution doesn't allow discrimination of religion. Thats the way it should be.
Ever heard of Dan Amato or Kimberly Dvorak??? No. And you never will, their attempt at "white fright" was so lame you may not even have heard of it. Amato says he was tipped off by that bastion of truth and honor the minutemen. Jeff Swilk to be exact,  that 2 ranches in texas were invaded and taken over by Los Zetas. The Military arm of the gulf cartel. He then linked to Kimberly Dvoraks post as proof . One problem, it was all lies, no officials or law enforcement in Loredo confirmed this "story".  A swing and a miss for the right wing!!
Now for my last piece of "white fright". Fox ran, and ran, and ran with a story that the Obama administration had refused to prosecute 2 members of the new black panthers who were "intimidating" voters at a Philadelphia voting centre. Here is the kicker... you ready?? It was in fact, President BUSH who declined to prosecute these gentlemen!  These are classic examples of what I call white fright. There are a lot more examples I could mention but I'm stopping here because I'm getting on my own nerves!  The republican party for over 8 years destroyed the Americans surplus economy, international standing and human rights record. They have admitted that they have NO new ideas, and if they regain power it will be more of the same tax cuts for the rich, deregulation and fat cat love. They're saying "HEY! White people, look how scary the brown people are! Vote for us white guys we will keep you safe." Please conservative voters, vote with your head not your heart, its the patriotic thing to do. And to Sarah "I can see mongolia from my toilet" Palin, Newt "the beaut" Gingrich, Sean "insanity" Hannity, Dan "run quick the mexicans are coming" Amato and Kimberly "run quick, Dan said the mexicans are coming" Dvorak, I say DONT BE ACTIN THE MAGGOT!
