Some of the comments Ohio voters voice on this 2:08 video:


Woman: “I’m afraid if [Barack Obama] wins, the black (sic) will take over. He’s not a Christian, this is a Christian nation….” 

–Blacks don’t have the political standing (collective wealth or influence) nor some wacky hidden desire “to take over”; Obama is a Christian, though America is not a Christian nation. Repeat after me: There is a separation between Church and State. There is a separation between Church and State. There is a separation between Church and State. Good.


Man: “When you got a Negro running for president, he ain’t a first stringer.” 

–First. Negro? Lord. help me… what century is it anyway? Second, he’s displaying that old American footballer mentality which holds that blacks can not and should not hold the highly coveted QB position. Welcome to the 21st century. I guess he thinks that this racist, outdated mentality applies to politics as well. Not.  


Man holding baby: “…Palin, she’s filled with the Holy Spirit and I believe she’s gonna bring honesty and integrity to the White House.” 

–First, I feel sorry for that kid he’s holding and for America. Second, If Palin is filled with anything it’s with witchdoctoring, which goes against the teaching of the bible. And third, he neglects to mention the Troopergate findings that acknowledge Sarah Palin misused the governor’s office in an attempt to have her former BIL fired. That investigation is only the tip of the iceberg. According to various sources there are ongoing probes (housegate, emailgate, expanded probe into troopergate) into Palin’s alleged “ethics” violations as governor and mayor.


Man: “[Barack Obama’s] related to a known terrorist for one.” 

–No mention of who these alleged mysterious terrorist relatives are nor was there any mention of McCain’s established connections to enemies of the State, nor Palin and her husband’s ties to sessionist party AIP.


Woman: “Barack and his wife, I’m concerned that they could be anti-white.” 

–So now, according to the woman, there’s speculation that Obama hates half of his family despite evidence quite to the contrary.


Woman: “I don’t like the fact that he thinks us white people are trash.”

–Who knows where this dizzy comment comes from.


As xenophobic and thoughtless as these people are it’s difficult to imagine them as descendants of those brave souls who against all odds journeyed to America to escape persecution or came to America in search of freedom and a better life… for their children.

America: Land of the Free Home of the Brave. Where are you?
