You better hope they don't get their way...

"I am not a good American...I prefer to form my own opinions" - George Carlin

Right wing Repugs, I mean. I received this email from Alan Grayson today. I felt it needed passing on.

My opponent, Dan Fanelli, thinks that only brown people should have to pass through security at the airports. Because all terrorists are brown people.

I'm not making this up. If you don't believe me, see for yourself. If you can stomach it.



Apparently, Dan Fanelli is running against me because I'm not racist.

Fanelli's "racist madness" was reported on MSNBC, the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, CBS, and Talking Points Memo. You can watch the ad on Keith Olbermann's show, which dedicated a whole segment to Fanelli.

But let's go through some pictures together, so Dan Fanelli can see some different faces of terrorism.

Does THIS look like a terrorist?

That's Timothy McVeigh.

Does THIS look like a terrorist?

That's Holocaust Museum shooter James Von Brunn.

Does THIS look like a terrorist?

That's white supremacist Daniel Cowart, who conspired to kill President Obama.

Does THIS look like a terrorist?

That's Jeff Berry of the KKK.

Terrorists come in all colors, shapes, sizes, and even genders. But Fanelli isn't really talking about terrorism. What Fanelli and his Republican bigot friends are saying is that American citizenship comes in two versions: white and nonwhite. That's why they want to put through laws that would require every single person to carry proof of citizenship, or risk arrest. Because they want to degrade and put down everyone who isn't just like them.

I have news for them. America is a nation, not a tribe.

You can give the facts to racists, but it will just confuse them!

Politics.
They are smooching up to their base. It is all they have.

Moko said...

I think politicians are the real terrorists.

Jerry Critter said...

Talk about fear mongering. Fanelli is doing exactly what the terrorists want him to do -- fear mongering. Fanelli is a tool of the terrorists, which is just as bad as being a terrorist, if not worse. He is proof that terrorism works.

Republicans -- Tools of the terrorists.

Republicans, no longer the GOP, now the TOTT.

Sue said...

Punch said...

This guy makes Joe McCarthy look like a high school click leader.
Is this guy from florida?
Alan Grayson is?
I want my country back.

jadedj said...

DSWS---We don't need no stinkin' facts.

RZ---Right on target, dude.

Moko---Long time no see! No truer words have been spoken, my friend.

Jerry---Indeed...not to mention it gives them an excuse to legitimize their bigotry. I hate these motherfuckers...seriously...I really do.

Love it---TOTT.

Sue---Yes.

Punch---He is...dick leader, that is...and from Florida.
Running against Alan...the Man...the Main Man, at this point. The only man in D.C. willing to tell the rest of them to kiss his ass...regularly. They are in great fear of him, as you can see from the asswipes campaign video.

You can not have it back...it ain't yours in the first place. Don't believe it? Ask Crazy Horse.
OK, OK, I know you had tongue-in-cheek as you typed that.

diane said...

Is that guy for real? He's as stupid as they come.

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

sigh..what happened to the good ole days when smart knowledgeable people ran for office.?

boomer bob said...

I think he's taking campaign hints from Katherine Harris.

"We have to have the faithful in government...God is the one who chooses our rulers."

Well hell! Yahweh, Allah, Buddha, Thor and whole host of other gods are gonna be really piiiiised off for letting him have all the fun.

"And if we are the ones not actively involved in electing those godly men and women and if people aren’t involved in helping godly men in getting elected then we’re going to have a nation of secular laws."

Oh damn. Just when I thought it was safe and intelligent to go to the voting booth again.

"if you’re not electing Christians then in essence you are going to legislate sin. They can legislate sin. They can say that abortion is alright. They can vote to sustain gay marriage."

And those liberals will surely allow those that aren't bald and pink fly airplanes. OH GAWD HELP US! WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!

"we are leading them astray and it’s wrong"

All this shit coming out of the woodwork lately is like falling down the rabbit hole - it's getting curiouser and curiouser

Racism like religion is a form of brainwashing passed onto us by our parents and the specific society surrounding our upbringing.

Just like you can't change most people's religious beliefs, you can't change their belief that some humans are not as human as them. They learned early on, to distinguish these "sub-humans" by their color and, of course, by their religion.

Whites hate blacks and browns. Christians hate Muslims and Jews. Jews hate anyting "non-Kosher"including whites. Blacks hate whites for being hated by whites. Politicians use this hate to create more hate.

If there is a god, he played the greatest joke on his humans by creating us in diffrent colors and diffrent beliefs.

jadedj said...

diane---You know that...I know that, but Joe the Plumber doesn't.

YDG---I agree. People like, er ah....hmmmm. I'll get back to you.

boomer bob---The dumb fucks can't see that the God-in-guvnerment crap they are spouting is exactly the kind of government many Muslim nations have. It boggles the mind.

Chimp---Let me extend that a bit. If we were all the same color, we would find ways to hate others for some reason. It is a Them, Us thing with humans. It is in our genes. And we use religion not only as a control, but as a justification for our prejudices. Disgusting.

Mr. Charleston said...

It's too bad that after all these years these asswipes still don't know who the real enemy is.

jadedj said...

Mr. C---Agreed. These guys are not really concerned about enemies, or threats to the country. It's about power, and suppressed bigotry. Seriously, these fuckers are dangerous.

Punch said...

I would also say these fuckers are seriously dangerous.

jadedj said...

Punch---Are you serious? Seriously, they are.

Chimp said...

You're right. If it's not religion or black or brown, then it's Irish or Italian.... Then's it's rich, middle class, poor and white trash. Then it's young, middle aged, old or crippled. There's aleways an excuse to be a "good Christian".
