I'm probably not the best person to listen to this subject. I'm a white male atheist liberal Obama supporter I cannot claim to be neutral. I kept hearing about this and how anti-american it was and all that. I had pretty high expectations for these video's I mean they were being trumpeted as being quite insane. Then I watched one, and another and maybe I'm missing something but I don't get it. I mean yeah people don't take to kindly to saying that god has damned our country and should, but didn't falwell and roberston say almost the same shit, except with a whole lot more crazy? One crazy pastor says AIDS was a government conspiracy to keep the black man down the other says god made it because he hates gays, but apparently can't actually make them not gay so he creates a virus that initially runs rampant in the homosexual community but now is an epidemic in africa. Both are crazy, but at least the one has a little bit of basis in reality. As for anti-american, robertson suggested nuking Washington D.C. OK so he really just wanted a little nuke for Foggy Bottom, a neighborhood in D.C. where my sister used to live and apparently is where the state department is located, so he really just wanted to NUKE the STATE DEPARTMENT!?!?!?! Somehow that's not anti-american. Now I know the big difference here is that these two psycho's aren't preaching to to our president, but then again people who do listen to robertson now work in our government. I'm also going to link to Obama's speech, heard it was good, the rude pundit liked it anyway.
My only question left, will people now stop trying to call Obama muslim?
UPDATE: I heard a few people at work giving awkward ass opinions about this issue, they claim to like and support him but think that this is going to bring down his whole campaign. It got awkward when my co-worker said that people will think he's racist.... um... HE'S HALF WHITE!!!! Who the fuck is he supposed to be racist against? Remind me I seem to have forgotten does he hate people who look like his mom or like his dad?
Oh and as for the pastor hating america, he's a Vet, I know I know Kerry was a vet too and obviously he hated america...(birds chirping) but how about you ask Bobby Goodman if Jeremiah Wright hates americans?
