I decided to do something last night which I never did before. I wanted to hear what people on the Political right hear from talk radio. So I turned to one of the AM frequencies. Those are the Stations which pollute the airwaves with the most vile bellicose garbage. That’s what passes for information to almost 50% of the Country’s population. These Stations are a source of information and are home to the likes Of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Ted Nugent, Glen Beck, Laura Ingram and a whole host of other hate-mongers. I must tell you I am surprised that the Country is not plunged into yet another civil-war. The tone and tenor of the rhetoric is indistinguishable from Hitler’s 1937-1938 speeches delivered from the Reichstag. How people can hate that much is beyond my comprehension! In the absence of facts they concoct their own truths. They devise a narrative, spins and sells it to their listeners who in turn assimilate and regurgitate it as fact. The most ludicrous conspiracy theories are promulgated as irrefutable facts.
These bigoted talkers don’t care that the lies they tell may be disproved immediately. They know their listeners are not interested in finding out whether what they are told are true. The fabricated lies are all they need, hatred of Obama is the accelerant which fuels their fire. They talk incessantly about the Constitution yet many of them are unaware of what’s in the Constitution.
At a march a few days ago one ignorant bigot Larry Klayman had this to say about the twice elected President of the United States, in front of the White House.
“I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up,” said Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, a conservative political advocacy group.
Here’s the rub. Even if this moron was right about the President being a Muslim. Even if he was right that the President had a Quran. Even if he was right about the President of the United States being on his knees praying to Allah. None of the aforementioned would have being a dis-qualifier for this or any other President from holding the office of President. The United States Constitution’s only criteria for the Presidency is that a person must have been born in the United States and have attained the age of thirty-five (35)years old, that’s it . What these Racial and Religious bigots succeed in doing is showing the world just how ignorant they are. Ignorant about the very document at the center of their despotic unrighteous hate-filled crusade. Yet they have millions of uneducated hate-filled hearts clinging to their every word, hungry for more and more hate filled rhetoric.
Thursday morning and it’s time for the circular firing squad, time for cannibalism, the chief target of their ire Mitch McConnell the Minority leader of the Senate. I guess McConnell is a liberal now. Helping to craft legislative compromise to avert a colossal implosion of the World’s economy renders him a Lefty. This is the level of ignorant kamikaze fanaticism which now largely make up the Confederate/Republican Party from the highest level to the grass-roots.
