                                  Obama’s Communist Mentor
                                  BY CLIFF KINCAID | FEBRUARY 18, 2008

                                  In his biography of Barack Obama, David Mendell writes about
                                  Obama’s life as a                                                                   Is “coalition

                                  habit.” But                                                                     Obama’s rise to
                                  what about Obama’s secret political life? It turns out that Obama’s                      power?

                                  mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was a communist.

    Control                       through Frank Marshall Davis, Obama had an admitted relationship with someone
                                  who was publicly identified as a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). The
    MSNBC Works with
    Alex Jones to                 record shows that Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979, where,

    Movement
                                  with Davis, listening to his “poetry” and getting
                                  advice on his career path. But Obama, in his book, Dreams From My Father, refers to him repeatedly
                                  as just “Frank.”

                                  The
                                  reason is apparent: Davis was a known communist
                                  who belonged to a party subservient to the Soviet Union. In fact, the 1951
                                  report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii
                                  identified him as a
                                  CPUSA member. What’s more, anti-communist congressional committees, including
                                  the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), accused Davis of involvement in
                                  several communist-front organizations.

                                  Trevor

                                  evidence that “Frank” was Frank Marshall Davis in a posting in March of 2007.

                                  Obama’s
                                  communist connection adds to mounting public concern about a candidate who has
                                  come out of virtually nowhere, with a brief U.S. Senate legislative record, to
                                  become the Democratic Party frontrunner for the U.S. presidency. In the
                                  latest Real Clear Politics poll average, Obama beats Republican
                                  John McCain by almost four percentage points.

                                  AIM recently disclosed that Obama has
                                  well-documented socialist connections, which help explain why he sponsored a “Global Poverty Act”
                                  designed to send
                                  hundreds of billions of dollars of U.S. foreign aid to the rest of the world,
                                  in order to meet U.N. demands. The bill has passed the House and a Senate
                                  committee, and awaits full Senate action.

                                  But
                                  the Communist Party connection through Davis is even more ominous.
                                  Decades ago, the CPUSA had tens of thousands of members, some of them covert
                                  agents who had penetrated the U.S. Government. It received secret subsidies
                                  from the old Soviet
                                  Union.

                                  You
                                  won’t find any of this discussed in the David Mendell book, Obama: From Promise to Power. It is
                                  typical of the superficial biographies of Obama now on the market. Secret
                                  smoking seems to be Obama’s most controversial activity. At best, Mendell and
                                  the liberal media describe Obama as “left-leaning.”

                                  But
                                  you will find it briefly discussed, sort of, in Obama’s own book, Dreams From My Father. He writes
                                  about
                                  “a poet named Frank,” who visited them in Hawaii, read poetry, and was
                                  full of “hard-earned knowledge” and advice. Who was Frank? Obama only says that
                                  he had “some modest notoriety once,” was “a contemporary of Richard Wright and

                           Langston Hughes during his years in Chicago…” but was now “pushing
                           eighty.” He writes about “Frank and his old Black Power dashiki self” giving
                           him advice before he left for Occidental College in 1979 at the age of
                           18.

                           This
                           “Frank” is none other than Frank Marshall Davis, the black communist writer now
                           considered by some to be in the same category of prominence as Maya Angelou and
                           Alice Walker. In the summer/fall 2003 issue of African American
                           Review, James A. Miller of George Washington University reviews a book by John
                           Edgar Tidwell, a professor at the University of Kansas,
                           about Davis’s career, and notes, “In Davis’s case, his political
                           commitments led him to join the American Communist Party during the middle of
                           World War II-even though he never publicly admitted his Party membership.”
                           Tidwell is an expert on the life and writings of Davis.

                           Is
                           it possible that Obama did not know who Davis was when he wrote his
                           book, Dreams From My Father, first
                           published in 1995? That’s not plausible since Obama refers
                           to him as a contemporary of Richard
                           Wright and Langston Hughes and says he saw a book of his black poetry.

                           The
                           communists knew who “Frank” was, and they know who Obama is. In fact, one
                           academic who travels in communist circles understands the significance of the
                           Davis-Obama relationship.

                           Professor
                           Gerald Horne, a contributing editor of the Communist Party journal Political Affairs, talked about it
                           during a speech last March at the
                           reception of the Communist Party USA archives at the Tamiment Library at New York University. The
                           remarks
                           are posted online under the headline, “Rethinking the History and Future of the Communist Party.”

                           Horne,
                           a history professor at the University of Houston, noted that Davis, who
                           moved to Honolulu from Kansas in 1948 “at
                           the suggestion of his good friend Paul Robeson,” came into contact with Barack
                           Obama and his family and became the young man’s mentor, influencing Obama’s
                           sense of identity and career moves. Robeson, of course, was the well-known
                           black actor and singer who served as a member of the CPUSA and apologist for the old Soviet Union.
                           Davis had known Robeson from
                           his time in Chicago.

                           As Horne describes it, Davis
                           “befriended” a “Euro-American family” that had “migrated to Honolulu from Kansas and a young
                           woman from this family eventually had a child with a young student from Kenya
                           East Africa who goes by the name of Barack Obama, who retracing the steps of Davis eventually
                           decamped to Chicago.”

                           It was in Chicago that Obama became a “community organizer” and
                           came into contact with more far-left political forces, including the Democratic
                           Socialists of America, which maintains close ties to European socialist groups
                           and parties through the Socialist International (SI), and two former members of
                           the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), William
                           Ayers and Carl Davidson.

                           The SDS laid siege
                           to college campuses across America in the
                           1960s, mostly in order to protest the Vietnam War, and spawned the terrorist
                           Weather Underground organization. Ayers was a member of the terrorist group and
                           turned himself in to authorities in 1981. He is now a college professor and
                           served with Obama on the board of the Woods Fund of Chicago. Davidson is now a
                           figure in the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, an offshoot of the old
                           Moscow-controlled CPUSA, and helped organize the 2002 rally where Obama came
                           out against the Iraq War.

                           Both
                           communism and socialism trace their roots to Karl Marx, co-author of the
                           Communist Manifesto, who endorsed the first meeting of the Socialist
                           International, then called the “First International.” According to Pierre
                           Mauroy, president of the SI from 1992-1996, “It was he [Marx] who formally
                           launched it, gave the inaugural address and devised its structure…”

                           Apparently unaware that Davis had been
                           publicly named as a CPUSA member, Horne said only that Davis “was
                           certainly in the orbit of the CP [Communist Party]-if not a member…”

                           In addition to Tidwell’s book, Black
                           Moods: Collected Poems of Frank Marshall Davis, confirming Davis’s Communist Party membership,
                           another book, The New Red
                           Negro: The Literary Left and African American Poetry, 1930-1946, names Davis

Obama’s Communist Mentor                                                                                                       6/24/10 9:34 PM


                           as one of several black poets who continued to publish in CPUSA-supported publications
                           after the 1939 Hitler-Stalin non-aggression pact. The author, James Edward Smethurst, associate
                           professor of Afro-American studies at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst,
                           says that Davis, however, would later claim that he was “deeply troubled” by
                           the pact.

                           While blacks such as Richard Wright left the CPUSA, it is not
                           clear if or when Davis ever left
                           the party.

                           However, Obama writes in Dreams
                           From My Father that he saw “Frank” only a few days before he left Hawaii for
                           college, and that Davis seemed just
                           as radical as ever. Davis called
                           college “An advanced degree in compromise” and warned Obama not to forget his
                           “people” and not to “start believing what they tell you about equal opportunity
                           and the American way and all that ####.” Davis also
                           complained about foot problems, the result of “trying to force African feet
                           into European shoes,” Obama wrote.

                           For his part, Horne says that Obama’s giving of credit to Davis will be
                           important in history. “At some point in the future, a teacher will add to her
                           syllabus Barack’s memoir and instruct her students to read it alongside Frank
                           Marshall Davis’ equally affecting memoir, Living
                           the Blues and when that day comes, I’m sure a future student will not only
                           examine critically the Frankenstein monsters that US imperialism created in
                           order to subdue Communist parties but will also be moved to come to this
                           historic and wonderful archive in order to gain insight on what has befallen
                           this complex and intriguing planet on which we reside,” he said.

                           Dr. Kathryn Takara, a
                           professor of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Hawaii at Manoa who also
                           confirms that Davis is the “Frank” in
                           Obama’s book, did her dissertation on Davis and spent much time
                           with him between 1972 until he passed away in 1987.

                           In an analysis posted online, she
                           notes that Davis, who was a columnist for the Honolulu Record, brought “an
                           acute sense of race relations and class struggle throughout America and the world”
                           and that he openly discussed subjects such as American imperialism, colonialism and exploitation.
                           She described
                           him as a “socialist realist” who attacked the work of the House Un-American
                           Activities Committee.

                           Davis, in his own writings,
                           had said that Robeson and Harry Bridges, the head of the International Longshore and
                           Warehouse Union (ILWU) and a secret member of the CPUSA, had suggested
                           that he take a job as a columnist with the Honolulu Record “and see if I could
                           do something for them.” The ILWU was organizing workers there and Robeson’s
                           contacts were “passed on” to Davis, Takara writes.

                           Takara says that Davis “espoused freedom,
                           radicalism, solidarity, labor unions, due process, peace, affirmative action,
                           civil rights, Negro History week, and true Democracy to fight imperialism,
                           colonialism, and white supremacy. He urged coalition politics.”

                           Is
                           “coalition politics” at work in Obama’s rise to power?

                           Trevor
                           Loudon, the New Zealand-based blogger who has been analyzing the political
                           forces behind Obama and specializes in studying the impact of Marxist and
                           leftist political organizations, notes that Frank Chapman, a CPUSA supporter,
                           has written a letter to the party newspaper hailing the Illinois senator’s
                           victory in the Iowa caucuses.

                           “Obama’s
                           victory was more than a progressive move; it was a dialectical leap ushering in
                           a qualitatively new era of struggle,” Chapman wrote. “Marx once compared
                           revolutionary struggle with the work of the mole, who sometimes burrows so far
                           beneath the ground that he leaves no trace of his movement on the surface. This
                           is the old revolutionary ‘mole,’ not only showing his traces on the surface but
                           also breaking through.”

                           Let’s challenge the liberal media to report on this.
                           Will they have the honesty and integrity to do so?

                             You are an idiot. Speculation and one sided sources. If you are going to report on such things
                             report on the whole thing not just your meger assessment.

                             James first of all why start out with “You are an idiot.”? Are his facts incorrect? What part of the
                             whole thing would you have him report on? The story was about Obamas communist
                             associations.

                             If the facts are correct then I think we need to know more about what kind of agenda Obama
                             has for our country.

                             Barack) has went to Trinity UNited Church of Christ, for years.

                             Who really cares if Barack Obama is a communist or socialist? Compared to the last 7 long
                             years of having this idiotic moronic bloodthirsty murderous corrupt pathologically-lying
                             sociopathic demonic fascist slimeball known as Dumbya in the White House, America would be
                             well served to have a large amount of corrective action put in place by a communist or
                             socialist. The simple fact is that President Cheney and his little dummy have easily been the
                             worst leaders this country has ever had, and certainly ever will (arguable the worst in world
                             history). I mean they even make Adolph Hitler look like a great guy. At least Hitler took care of
                             his own people. You can’t even say that about Dictator Bush. I doubt you’ll ever find anyone
                             more universally despised across the universe than George W. Bush. He has become so
                             mentally deranged that today he even said we’re not in a recession.

                             With an over 80% unapproval rate, I bet he’ll be on the phone soon to his old friend Jimmyjeff.
                             You know… the bald guy who pretended to be a journalist by going to a weekend seminar,
                             then got a job working for a reich-wing kkkonservative website and then suddenly, magically,
                             got a White House Press Room pass… something that even real journalists who’ve been
                             working politics for years can’t even get… and was then exposed as a reich-wing Repugnican
                             shill. What was his name again??? Oh yeah… that’s right. It was Jeff Gannon. You
                             remember him… the guy with the website who is a gay prostitute and full naked photos of
                             himself and the services he provides other men. And only men. Anyway… with all this stress
                             on ol’ psycho George, I bet he’ll be calling up Jimmyjeff for another one of his special
                             massages with “happy ending” soon.
                             And gee now that I think about it, wasn’t it strange how the media suddenly dropped this story
                             like a hot potato? Almost as strange as all the coverups surrounding 9-11.

                             Anyway, today I was reading that the poverty level in the U.S. is artificially set at just $10,000
                             per year. However, if you become permanently disabled through no fault of your own and can
                             no longer work, you will receive an average of $600 per month to live on (assuming you can
                             even pass the tough test of being deemed disabled, which I hear is a lot harder than the TV
                             commericials make it look). Now then, if there is no housing available within 50-75 miles below
                             $500,000, then how does one live on $600 per month?

                             So they move? OK how? (And what if they’ve lived in their area their entire lives??) In order
                             to qualify for disability you cannot have assets totalling more than $2,000. TOTAL. That
                             includes a car. So tell me how a disabled person is supposed to live on $600 per month then?
                             And if they’re supposed to move, how do they do it? Movers cost money, and a disabled
                             person can’t move their own things, obviously. So what do they do, become homeless? I
                             guess that’s what you Rethugnican fascists want. Kinda funny when we’re supposed to be the
                             greatest country on the planet. The home of the free and the brave. Justice for all.
                             Bwaahahahahahahaha!!

                             In European Union countries though, they set their poverty rate not artificially as we do in the
                             U.S., they set it according to 60% of average median income. Now THAT is realistic. If the
                             average annual income is $30,000, then a disabled person would receive $24,000 per year to
                             live on. That’s workable.

                             $600 per month is an obscene gesture like a kick in the teeth to someone when they’re down.

                             And it’s especially revolting considering we’re the richest country on the planet and in the
                             history of the world, particularly when the latest cost estimates of the boondoggle in Iraq are
                             running at $1 to $1.5 trillion, and counting.

                             So, I’m all for Barack and think flushing George Bush-style capitalism down the toilet into the
                             cesspit of history is a fantastic idea. After reading this article, I’d be even MORE inclined to
                             vote for Obama now!

                             Hey Sagacious, you’re full of S#*T, and most (98%)of Americans do give a rat’s ass if a
                             communist / socialist even comes close to the White House. Historically what is a leftist?
                             Answer… communist / socialist / fascist /dictator.

                             The democrats are socialist and Joe McCarthy was right when he warned America that we
                             have an enemy within.

                             People like yourself are the ones who are bitter and unhappy with America, and since you
                             seem to favor the European Union, then pack your stuff and leave the USA and denounce your
                             American citizenship and join them.You might consider getting some guns and religion to take
                             with you.

                             Axelrod’s strategy has been to promote a personality, not issues. Perhaps this is why Obama’s
                             campaign speeches have been more like Saturday Night Live Matt Foley motivational
                             speeches than serious attempts to lay out what an Obama presidency would mean to our
                             nation. Massachusetts voters are learning the folly of voting for a personality rather than sound
                             policies and a plan. (This isn’t to discount the importance of character or personality in a
                             political candidate, but the candidate should state what he’s going to do when elected – not
                             simply give motivational speeches.)

                             Sagacious,

                             You are an ill-informed, angry excuse for an American. There is so much in you diatribe that I
                             could attack but I will keep it to your point on the poverty level being “artificially set” at 10k.

                             First of all it isn’t set at 10k, you ignorant Marxist. It is “updated annually for inflation using the
                             Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U).” Quoted from the US Census bureau.

                             That poverty level also does not take into consideration any government benefits that do not
                             come in the form of cash. Food stamps, rent subsidies and the like are not included – you
                             ridiculous Leninist.

                             Most government programs use different, higher, poverty measures for determination of benefit
                             qualification but a Trotsky-ite wouldn’t want to know that. It might interfere with his anger and
                             smugness.

                             So you ask how could a person who became disabled “through no fault of their own” survive on
                             $600/month? I have plenty of answers but I will start with this simple one – they could have
                             planned for it!!

                             I have. It’s called disability insurance. I have taken personal responsibility for my own well
                             being, and that of my family, by insuring against this unfortunate occurrance. I believe that my
                             personal financial well being is my responsibility and don’t think that I should expect the
                             government to force anyone to support me (and in turn me to support anyone else I choose not
                             to – that’s called charity you thieving, arogant excuse for a human.)

                             The United States was founded under the premise that all men were created equal, that all
                             men would have the same opportunities to succedd OR to fail. It was founded under the
                             premise that what is ours is ours and that government shouldn’t take from one group to give to
                             another.
                             We are all free to be what we want and to earn what we want or don’t want.

                             We are not free to legislate that mine is yours and yours is yours and the elite govenment
                             officials who decide such things are nothing more than what you are – a Marxist.

                             I’d suggest you go live under a Marxist regime and see how well your Utopia ends up feeling,
                             but you’d better hurry they ain’t many of those around any longer and what they built is
                             crumbling to the ground faster than a sand castle at high tide.

                             So go vote for your communist friend Obama. Perhaps he can promise to give you my money
                             in larger chunks than Hillary can. Problem is when it’s all gone you won’t get a thing then who
                             will you cry to? Stalin?

                             There are things in the article – plus all of the remarks that I agree with. I’m not really “hip” on
                             many political happenings – but I’m going to vote for Obama, simply to give the “other side” a
                             chance to either screw us up more – or possibly to make things a little better. Hopefully, it will
                             be the “make things a little better”. Everyone has things in their past- that they wouldn’t think
                             of doing in their later years. Many of the things I believed in during my middle age years – I do
                             not believe in those things now. People change in their thinking – either from experience or
                             from personal happenings. I’m 80 years old now – and therefore going to give someone a
                             chance that at least “talks the talk” to give Americans some hope of an improved life. Only time
                             will tell.

                             Life is funny. We should forget politics and think of one simple thing, no matter wheather you
                             think global warming is real or not, the kinetic energy that we constantly add to the atmosphere
                             is real!! 25 mile wide tornantos should prove that to anyone! With this happening sooner or
                             later this will destabilize the ocean hydrates and we will really have global warming! OH!
                             Something like 25 to 30 degrees c. inside six months at the very least. So the question
                             becomes does our political structures as they function now with self-interest the most driving
                             force good enough. Most the brain-dead people in Washington would need hearings and
                             comittees and still it would not be enough.
                             It is our choice! Do you love this country more than you hate black people? Or do you hate
                             black people more than you love this country? That is the only question there is in this election!

                             Steve from Texas is either a liar or an idiot. Probably both. He says leftists are “communist /
                             socialist / fascist /dictator”.

                             This is a typical, scurrilous lie of the right wing… trying to confuse liberals with those other
                             groups. He and anyone else who believes this should do themselves a favor and look up the
                             definition of ‘liberal’ in the dictionary. You won’t see anything at all relating to what is in your
                             uninformed little mind.

                             However, Joe McCarthy was right though when he warned America that we have an enemy
                             within. They’re called Republicans. And America needs to be purged of these filthy crooks,
                             liars, hypocrites and fascist pig Republicans and the sooner the better.

                             Here, choke on this:

                             Howdy Rob, here’s some definitions for you of “liberal”
                             #1 favorable to progress or reform as in political or religious affairs.
                             #2 pretaining to a political party advocating measures of progressive political reform
                             #3 free from prejudice or bigotry, tolerant
                             #4 open-minded or tolerant not bound by traditional or conventional ideas or values.
                             Now politically speaking liberals don’t seem to measure up to their own definition. They are far
                             from “tolerant” of conservative ideas and values.
                             liberals don’t come close to being “open-minded” of traditionalist religious and political values.
                             liberals are “prejudice and completely bigotrious” towards anyone other than themselves,
                             because it’s their way or no way. “Progresssives” as they perfer to be called as opposed to
                             “liberals” are constantly “reforming” themselves to the point of not having a sense of
                             conventional wisdom.
                             One of the most defining traits of a liberal is name calling, because they don’t know how to win
                             the debate and when confronted straight up on an issue they slip, weave, dodge and make a
                             progressive move completely away from confrontation.
                             Rob, try looking up what I consider is a accurate definition of a liberal, “passive-aggressive”
                             and you might inform yourself on who you are. Us “Nutjobs from Texas” are always willing to
                             help the misinformed and political therapy is readily available.
                             As far as the late Senator Joe McCarthy is concerned, you might consider the fact he was
                             hunting communist/socalist/leftist who were in our goverment, military and Liberalwood
                             Mexifornia.
                             Hey by the way, aren’t Hugo and Castro leftist? The idea of “purging” America of anyone who
                             disagrees with the left reminds me of another famous person named Satlin,wasn’t he a leftist
                             as well.
                             Now try chocking on another word to look up “idiot or liar” which ever you perfer, and that is
                             Nationalist. I’ll be waiting for your reply here in the Great State of TEXAS.

                             Hey, wait a cotton pick’n minute! After counting the names that Rob threw at me I think he
                             should be dafted to pitch for the Boston Red Sox. He threw one sly curve “liar or idiot” two
                             99mph fasty “crooks & hypocrits” a sinker “fascist pig” and topped it off with two more sly
                             curves “liar & nutjob from Texas”

                             Now that’s very typical of a far-left leftist, socialist, communist, liberal. But like we Texans say
                             down here in the Great State of TEXAS, that’s expected from the lefties and we don’t mind, I’m
                             sure Rob has been called worse.

                             By way Rob, that word you used “kakistocratism” is NOT found in the dictionary, it must be
                             another liberal stick or stone to throw.

                             I’ll make a bet with you pal, after you look up the word Nationalist you’ll call me a nazi.

                             The facts are indeed mischaracterized. Read chapters 4-5 of “Dreams from My Father” to get
                             the full picture, but here’s a quick summary.

                             Frank wasn’t a “father figure” or mentor, but a friend of Barack’s grandfather. The two of them
                             were both from Wichita, Kansas although they didn’t know each other until they met in Hawaii.
                             Obama was writing about the various people he knew growing up, each of whom had their
                             own view of racial issues. Frank talked about the old days of Jim Crow in Kansas. What
                             Obama thought about Frank’s view was this:
                             “It made me smile, thinking back on Frank and his old Black Power, dashiki self. In some ways
                             he was as incurable as my mother, as certain in his faith, living in the same sixties time warp
                             that Hawaii had created.”

                             In other words, Frank hadn’t moved on. Obama recognized that Frank’s world no longer
                             existed, although Frank didn;t see that.

                             NOW do you get it?

                             Article II,section 1, paragraph four of the United States Consitution states: ” No Person except

                             John is no more eligible than Arnold is!!!!!!

                             John was born is Panama, while Arnold was born in Austria!!!!

                             I haven’t trusted Obama from day 1. I wanted to know where did he come from and who was
                             behind him. I have had many great reservations aabout his “truthfulness.” If you spend any
                             time undertanding human nature, you know that people will tell you what you want to hear or
                             what they want you to know. With all of this money I see behind Obama, I question who is he
                             the front man for? A colition would make sense. If you look at his website, you can see it took
                             some planning and someone skilled to set up not to mention the cost. Then every day I get
                             junk mail to vote for Obama which is not cheap. Next, everytime I go online there are Obama
                             pop ups and ads every where. Money is being spent like crazy. I have never seen such a
                             push to get someone nominated. The man Obama is not a very good speaker. He hesitates
                             because the words he uses are not truly his. When Obama actually speaks using his words,
                             he sounds more like a preacher. He focuses on change and the American dream.
                             Unfortunately, what we the people perceive as change, not politics as usual, and what is truly
                             within the Obama agenda my not be the same. What Obama says about change and the
                             American dream could be an underlayment for socialism and communism. Change from a
                             democracy is evident and having it so every one can be the same is a no brainer also.
                             Be careful what you ask for because you just might get it.

                             What a bunch of spin! Davis wasn’t a mentor and he wasn’t a father figure – just an old guy
                             who played cards and drank whiskey with Barack’s grandfather, talked about Jim Crow in
                             Kansas in the old days, and didn’t seem to notice the world had moved on.

                             From Wikipedia (all but the last sentences from material in Barack Obama’s “Dreams from My
                             Father” chapters 4 and 5):
                             http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Marshall_Davis
                             In his autobiographical Dreams from My Father, US senator and Democratic party presidential
                             candidate Barack Obama writes of “Frank”, a friend of his grandfather’s (they grew up 50 miles
                             apart, near Wichita, although they didn’t know each other then), who told him about the days of
                             Jim Crow in Kansas. Frank told Obama that college was about “leaving your race at the door,
                             leaving your people behind” and being trained, not educated. As Obama remembered, “It
                             made me smile, thinking back on Frank and his old Black Power, dashiki self. In some ways he
                             was as incurable as my mother, as certain in his faith, living in the same sixties time warp that
                             Hawaii had created.”[15] This “Frank” was Davis.

                             conservative, let’s discuss the ideas and not attack the people putting them forward. Most (not
                             all!) of these comments seem designed to generate more heat than light.

                             Hello Guy from North Carolina, as far as having more civility in this debate, I agree. As far as a
                             leftist liberal calling me a “liar or an idiot or both and a nutjob from Texas” sorry but them there
                             are political fight’n words, and us Texans will always stand and fight. Our fighting spirit comes

                             Hey Tyrone, Panama (the Panama Canal) was an American territory back when McCain was
                             born, making him an American citizen. That blows your “Ain’t it funny misinformed” slur to the
                             Republicans out of the Canal water, now that’s funny.

                             Hi Steve from Texas,

                              Kakistocacy, the base form for “kakistocratism” is in the dictionary; you must just not have a
                             big enough one. It means “government by the worst or least qualified.”

                             hello all i just read this thread today. im not one that knows alot about politics but earlier it was
                             said that liberals are or at least partialy have socialist or communistic tendencies.

                             obama aside, which i believe has an agenda that does not reflect american values, hillary said
                             the other night that she would lower the price of gas in thee now by taking away the federal tax
                             per gallon. to keep this revenue for the gov. she would then tax the oil companies profits.

                             i know this sounds good right? i dnt believe it is though. if we start down the road of taking from
                             the rich and giving to the poor then we are heading down a road that leads to wealth
                             redistribution arent we? am i wrong? i know the oil companies are making record profits but dnt
                             we live in a capatalistic free market society?

                             look leftist liberals believe in more government and more governmental control. they tell you
                             you have to wear a seat belt, you have to get rid of your firearms, they tell us we need national
                             health care, we need to change the constitution to be “up” with the times, we cant drill for oil,
                             we cant build nuclear power plants (which may be the greenest energy available), and in
                             general i think they would like us to ask if we may go to the restroom so they can allow that
                             too.

                             i know im jumping around but im tired and just got off work.

                             thats right i work. im not rich i dont own a business. i work for 11 bucks an hour and my wife is
                             still in school. im one of those guys who is suppose to love what liberals are saying. because i
                             believe they want people like me (working class) to feel bad that i have to work. im suppose to
                             be mad because other people have things i dont. im suppose to hate people for being
                             succesful. i believe they want people like me to be sucked into marxist ideals and theology.
                             that those who have should give to those who dont. that the government should tell people
                             what they should be able to make. and that the governmet should have total control over every
                             aspect of life. well i dont.

                             and as for firearms. if we did ban handguns do you think it would stop there? no then it would
                             be rifles then shotguns and then any firearm in general. then who is the only one with
                             firearms? yup the government. the right to bear arms given by the constitution was meant as a
                             means to overthrow a government that has gone astray. now i mean bad off not just that you
                             dont agree with some small issue. but if no one had guns it would make it a bit easier to
                             institute control by the ones who do have guns.

                             enough of my ranting i appologize if i offended anyone.

                             I’ll tell you where all that money comes from. People like me. There’s about 1.5 million of us
                             who have contributed to his campaign so far. He takes no money from PACs or lobbyists.
                             If you want to know his agenda go to his website and download the 70 page pdf document
                             which outlines every issue. There’s nothing very radical about his positions and certainly
                             nothing that any rational person would call “socialist”.
                             This guy is the real deal. He will work across party lines and try to make sure that working
                             people get what they deserve. He can begin to restore our badly damaged reputation in the
                             world.
                             McCain’s platform is cut taxes and bomb Iran. What’s better for you and your country?

                             I think Barack HUSSEIN Obama is a communist/muslim that is working against our country in
                             the long run… I do not trust him as far as i could throw him… I also think this communist
                             “Frank” had an impact on Osama Obama, just like his two muslim fathers, and if it didnt like
                             some of you say why did Obama go to a church, for 20 plus years, that the pastor is against
                             America, America’s ways, and he also says the government spread the AIDS virus to the black
                             people ( which is bulls**t in my opion).. Obama says he never heard it before i am sorry if you
                             go to a church you go because of what they preach, especially if you go to the same church
                             and pastor for that long… It is also funny how osama obama denounced his long time pastor
                             when it began hurting him in the race.. Those are just a few things that push me away from him
                             and make me not trust him.. His is secreative and acts like he is hideing something that he
                             doesnt want us to find out…

                             This is the problem, all of you are believing what he says in his books. Do your own research
                             on people like Ayers, Davis, and Wright. They have all admittedly been members of socialist
                             groups and wings of the CPUSA(Communist Party of the USA). Obama is indeed a communist
                             via his ideals, and his policies are proof of that. For a black man to marry a white jewish
                             woman in the sixties was forbidden by almost all societies, expect the communist party who
                             admittedly and intentionally planned to “poison the blood of American purity”. Obama’s
                             grandfather did not just move from Kansas to Hawaii, he was blackballed by the government
                             and sent from the mainland. But that’s not in his book, so it must not be true. DO YOUR OWN
                             RESEARCH!

                             Obama went to church for twenty years, with a crazy preacher who offends white people, so
                             O’bama has to be bad also, then don’t forget he is a muslim too!!!! Ha Ha what great logic,
                             what large minds. The question still remains the same do you hate black people more than
                             you love this country. But you really are not smart enough to understand a question like this.
                             You think that this question is about me when it is about you. Simply put so that every one of
                             you out there can under-stand this. There our white people who just don’t like black people.
                             There are black people who just don’t like white people. In the past when a black person who
                             really doesn’t like white people, had to vote, a lot of them put their racist views aside a vote for
                             the person who they thought was best for the country. Now the shoe is on the other foot! You
                             may not like it or be pist-off about it, but the simple fact is
                             Right now in this race for president, the only person who stands a half-assed chance of fixing
                             this country is a Black man. And no more of the bullshit muti cutural stuff, All of my life anyone
                             who had one single drop of black blood was considered black. And if you really from Texas I
                             shouldn’t have to write this. But live in denial if you want and watch our country go down the
                             tube because so many people in this country can’t get past race and really look at the issues
                             for what they are. As a black man I can tell you that some times it is hard. The best example is
                             having to vote for Bill Clinton, knowing full well that he was and is so much of a racist that he
                             let over a million black people get murdered in Rewanda and did nothing, because at the time I
                             thought he was best for this country. I flat out don’t like Bush, but I know he would never let
                             something like that happen. The truth is the truth. Some white people will never like black
                             people, some black people will never like white people, forget the reasons or if either one is
                             right, the question is – Does the Health of our country come first, or does our race!

                             Your insults about “not being smart enough to understand” only shows your racism towards
                             Whites. So now you answer the question stated above since you’re smart enough to
                             understand it.

                             Racism is Worldwide and not just between races of different colors or just in America. There’s
                             racism in Asia, the Middle East, between Muslims, in Europe and North & South America. It’s a
                             natural thing with human beings.

                             Back to Obama, so he’s your savior for the country? So how much can this rookie, junior
                             politcian which happens to be black really do when he has so little experience? On the job
                             training, maybe his friends will guide him through and his wife will hold his hand.

                             As far as Rewanda, that was an African thing, black on black killing just like in Durfar. Let’s
                             see black leaders like the Rev White, Jackson & Sharpton lead the way to stop the killing.

                             Most people will always perfer their own race, it’s natural. And yes I am really from the Great
                             State of TEXAS.

                             looking in, just as us conservatives will be when Big Brother Government takes it all over.
                             Of all the posts in here, I have to agree with Chris from Mississippi and Steve from Tx.
                             although Tx. don’t have a monopoly on standing up and fighting.
                             We all better survey the situation and the way the world is headed and vote wisely and Obama
                             isn’t the right way.

                             Tradition has it your enemy can be swayed over to your side by co-opting him. Take your
                             average communist give him sway in the political process, wealth, prestige; then he will
                             abandon the error of his ways. Even better if he has to work to get where he is. Those that
                             seek to make the man seem more different that he already is (a rich elitist) should point to the

                             In reviewing the referenced transcript of Gerald Horne’s speech, I can find no evidence to
                             substantiate your contention that “Horne noted” that Davis became Obama’s “mentor,” nor
                             evidence that “Horne noted” that Davis influenced Obama’s “career moves.”

                             It appears that the basic article may be falsely attributing these to Gerald Horne’s speech.
                             Coupled with the author’s unsubstantiated contention that the “record shows” that Obama
                             “developed a close relationship, almost like a son, with Davis,” such false attributions suggest
                             that other aspects of his article may warrant closer scrutiny.

                             In view of AIM’s motto regarding “fairness, balance and accuracy in news reporting,” perhaps
                             further clarification may be in order.

                             The vitriol from the left-leaning posters here makes me wonder about their veracity, let alone
                             their questionable “sagacity”. However, in the words of Tom Jefferson: “Let them stand
                             undisturbed as monuments to the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated, where
                             reason is left free to combat it.”

                             There may be weakness in the argument that Barry-O is a Marxist simply because of his
                             limited ties to Frank Davis. However, when looked at holistically, his interactions with Davis,
                             combined with a veritable parade of other leftist characters, unproud wives, party bosses, racist
                             spiritual mentors, and terrorist bombers may give the (truly) sagacious pause—or at least those
                             who care about the future liberty of this country.

                             In Texas, we might call Barry-O a Tree Turtle. If you ever see a turtle in a tree, you know he
                             didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he
                             is up there, and you wonder who put him up there, and why.

                             Good point, John, and eloquently presented!

                             I believe, however, that while professional advocates (such as defense attorneys) may be
                             justified in stacking the evidence or exaggerating to make a point, those who claim to support
                             “fairness, balance, and accuracy” are held to a higher standard of integrity – as ex-D.A. Nifong
                             discovered in the Duke Lacrosse case.

                             ……these are the words of Gerald Horne:

                             When these sources are explored, I think scholars of the future will be struck by, for example,
                             the response in Honolulu when tens of thousands of workers went on strike when labor and CP
                             leaders were convicted of Smith Act violations in 1953 – a response totally unlike the response
                             on the mainland. Of course 98% of these workers were of Asian-Pacific ancestry, which
                             suggests that scholars have also been derelict in analyzing why these workers were less anti-
                             communist than their Euro-American counterparts. In any case, deploring these convictions in
                             Hawaii was an African-American poet and journalist by the name of Frank Marshall Davis, who
                             was certainly in the orbit of the CP – if not a member – and who was born in Kansas and spent
                             a good deal of his adult life in Chicago, before decamping to Honolulu in 1948 at the

                             suggestion of his good friend Paul Robeson. Eventually, he befriended another family – a Euro-
                             American family – that had migrated to Honolulu from Kansas and a young woman from this
                             family eventually had a child with a young student from Kenya East Africa who goes by the
                             name of Barack Obama, who retracing the steps of Davis eventually decamped to Chicago. In
                             his best selling memoir ‘Dreams of my Father’, the author speaks warmly of an older black
                             poet, he identifies simply as “Frank” as being a decisive influence in helping him to find his
                             present identity as an African-American, a people who have been the least anticommunist and
                             the most left-leaning of any constituency in this nation – though you would never know it from
                             reading so-called left journals of opinion. At some point in the future, a teacher will add to her
                             syllabus Barack’s memoir and instruct her students to read it alongside Frank Marshall Davis’
                             equally affecting memoir, “Living the Blues” and when that day comes, I’m sure a future student
                             will not only examine critically the Frankenstein monsters that US imperialism created in order
                             to subdue Communist parties but will also be moved to come to this historic and wonderful
                             archive in order to gain insight on what has befallen this complex and intriguing planet on which
                             we reside.

                             Thanks for the post, Mr. Nobody.

                             The post confirms that Horne noted that Davis influenced Obama’s “sense of identity” as an
                             African-American, as reported by Cliff Kincaid.

                             The post does not seem to confirm, however, Kincaid’s assertion that that Horne noted that
                             Davis became Obama’s “mentor” nor that Davis influenced Obama’s “career moves.”

                             The source of Kincaid’s assertion that the record shows that Obama “developed a close
                             relationship, almost like a son, with Davis” is yet to be determined. What is the source?

                             Steve from Texas: I`m a 62 year old fellow Texan and a proud supporter of George Wallace,
                             Barry Goldwater, and Ronald Reagan. I heard all the junk spoken about Joe McCarthy so I
                             decicided to do some research of my own. I bought the book by E Stanley Jones about
                             McCarthy and it was an eye opener. Joe McCarthy was and is right. After reading what these
                             brain dead robots said to you and about how great Obama is need to get some brains. Obama
                             and his wife are a danger to America. If the 80 year old man who wrote that he was supporting
                             Obama, I have to ask: sir—what have you done with your life?You`re as brain dead as the
                             other reprobates who support an idiot like Obama. I believe the saying is true”an informed
                             society is a free society”. The screwballs are stupid and mind numb robots who are
                             liberal>socialist>communist>social progressives>democrats!!!!! They are the products of
                             Marxism. I`ve been to the former Soviet Union several times and I can`t begin to describe what
                             marxism has done to those countries. Steve, you`ve done a good job. Stay with it. My great-
                             great grandfather fought with Sam Houston at San Jacinto. Two of my great grandfathers
                             fought with the state of Alabama during the Cilvil War. Only 6 % of white southerners owned
                             slaves and while I can`t understand why the British and Dutch brought these people from their
                             home lands here, I don`t know. To those who hate America and the white race I say” maybe
                             we can arrange to have those who hate us and America some transport back to their native
                             continent. I know most black people here do love America, it`s just the
                             socialists/communists/democrats and fake preachers who preach hate instead of God`s true
                             word. I must say however, in Proverbs ch. 6 it says “God hates those who sow discord among
                             the brethren”. So to those who have trash to speak about our country and to those of us who
                             love America, you are what God hates. Jesus said in Matthew ch. 5 vs. 9 ” blessed are the
                             peacemakers, for they are the sons of God”. I`d like to ask those rebrobates who spoke evil of
                             Steve and America: which category are you in? Are you a sower of discord such as Jeremiah
                             Wright, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson? Or maybe, you`re a peacemaker such as Billy
                             Grahm, Bishop T D Jakes and of course, Creflo Dollar? By the way Steve, I`m also a Vietnam
                             Vet and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to serve and protect my country. God bless you

                             information from? Is Stalin your hero?—-Kenneth

                             Kenneth—I AM a university professor, and my training as one is what taught me to think for
                             myself, to do my own research, to separate truth from falsehood from mere speculation. I read
                             widely, including across the political spectrum (how else do you think I ended up on this blog?),
                             and I cross-check what I read with sources of various stripes across that spectrum. What are
                             your qualifications? Where do get your information? How do you know it’s valid?

                              Why should you think I’d think well of Stalin? He was a dictator, which I abhor, and very
                             definitely NOT a communist. Are you one of those who confuse political and economic
                             systems? There is a difference, though most people don’t seem to realize it, but then
                             confusing the two has been a capitalist technique for over a century.

                               If you wonder why I associated you with Hitler, it’s because some of the heroes you cite have
                             strong similarities to him. Hitler, like George Wallace, was a racist and, like McCarthy, a
                             demogogue. Like McCarthy, he ruled by fear, and like McCarthy and Stalin, by purges. Many
                             people called before McCarthy’s HUAC were never able to find work again without hiding their
                             identity. Those who refused to testify against their friends were imprisoned as well as
                             eventually deprived of their livelihood. That’s a purge. Despite the divergence in their (at least
                             proclaimed) economic ideologies, politically, Stalin and McCarthy had a great deal in common.

                                I do, however, agree with you about the mainstream media; that’s why I subscribe to blogs
                             like the Huffington Post. Why don’t you try it? You seem to believe that you have an open
                             mind, so why not give it a chance to expand a bit further? Try Slate, too.

                             Maureen: I`m a retired postal employee who grew up in the 50`s and 60`s. I was taught history
                             by real history teachers . I can tell by your reading the Huffington Post that you are a
                             liberal/social progressive/ democrat and all the above. I can tell by your statements about
                             Wallace that you do not know anything about the man except what your twisted university
                             professors taught. I met him and attended two of his campaign appearances in Houston, Tx. in
                             1968. Not one word of hate for any race came out of his mouth. I was there. Ten million people
                             voted for him all accross the country. You know nothing of the man except what your socialist
                             professors told you. They tell you what to think and so you believe it. Wallace spoke a
                             message along the same lines as Reagan in 1968. He was after big goverment and it`s
                             intrusion into our lives. I researched McCarthy also and found out that the people he
                             investigated were either communists or communist sympathyzers. he did not accuse anyone of
                             being communists but asked them under oath to answer whether they were or not. Every one
                             plead the 5th. He also got most of his information from J. Edgar Hoover and also worked
                             alongside the HUAC in their investigations which indicted Alger Hiss and the Rosenbergs for
                             treason. I`ve watched countless hours of McCarthy`s hearings on the internet and in Libraries
                             and I found the man to be honest and patriotic. He also had the blessings and friendship of
                             John and Robert Kennedy. Robert almost became his lead investigator which even surprised
                             me. He didn`t purge anyone. By their own association with the CPUSA or their sympathy for
                             that group were they judged to be guilty by association. My older brothers and sisters listened
                             to many of the hearings on radio and they have the same conclusion. Now concernining Stalin
                             and Hitler—You asked me if Hitler is my hero. I told you he has been judged by God for his
                             crimes. Whether the man repented of his sins, I don`t know. By the way, do you believe in God
                             or the Lord Jesus Christ? I have been to Ukraine 10 times in the last 5 years as a missionary.
                             The citizens there at first thought Hitler was freeing them from the tyrannical rule of the
                             Communists. In 1935 to 1937 era, Stalin starved 6 million Ukrainians to death. The Germans
                             murdered 7 million. At the same time in the rest of the Soviet Union Stalin had as many as 20
                             million christians murdered. I`ve met many of the widows and children that managed to escape
                             the murders. In Warsaw, Poland there is a saying- “Hitler has killed his thousands and Stalin
                             has killed his 10 thousands”.This is what McCarthy was trying to warn us about. They wanted
                             to dominate the world and still do. However, now they call themselves social progressives or

                             Did any of you follow the link in Mr. Kincaid’s article to Dr. Katherine Takara’s piece on Frank
                             Marshall Davis? It provides an interesting and objective analysis of Davis’s positions, politics,
                             and career following his arrival in Hawaii in 1948.

                             Please note that Kincaid misquotes Dr. Takara in referring to F. M. Davis as a “socialist realist.”
                             In fact Dr. Takara’s actual words are “social realist,” a significant difference.

                             While I am not a fan of Senator Obama, his relationship as a boy/teenager with Frank Marshall
                             Davis would have no influence on my decision to vote for him. In the words of the Bard, this is
                             “much ado about nothing.”

                             Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent. Similarly, government
                             bureaucracies never solve problems, they manage them and exacerbate the ones they created
                             by interfering with market forces and processes.
                             If you want to know what liberals are up to, pay attention to what they accuse the
                             conservatives of.
                             The amount of wealth in any given area is inversely proportional to the amount of Democrats
                             running it.
                             Liberalism only succeeds when the public is scared into believing that it will not survive without
                             it.
                             When liberalism conflicts with reality, reality must give way.
                             Facts are the enemy of liberalism.
                             Things are different when you are a Democrat [regarding his allegations of the media’s
                             ignorance towards Democratic scandals and misconduct].
                             A Liberal is any person for whom two thousand years of human experience and history means
                             nothing now that they are here.
                             To liberals, intentions are more significant than the outcomes they achieve.
                             Liberals never think what they are doing is wrong, they only think they haven’t done enough of
                             it yet or it is underfunded.
                             Quinn’s Laws

                             “Profiling” is what groups call common sense when they have a problem they don’t want to talk
                             about.
                             Democrats and liberals do not engage in debate, they try to silence you. If they engaged in
                             debate, they’d lose.
                             Democrats are political opportunists.
                             Liberalism is based on unproven and/or disproven theory.
                             Liberals view the world the way they think it should be, not the way it is.

                             I am confused about politics. Used to be there was a list of characteristics for republican as
                             opposed to democrat, and a thing called creeping socialism to look out for. Now most of the
                             socialist goals have been realised, how come it seems we have a fascist state? My interest in
                             politics was casual because it didn’t effect me that much, now it seems horrific things are in
                             store no matter how I vote. Obama is now talking about sacrifices I must make. This business
                             of him being a closet commie reminds me of the Lyndon B. Johnson story of when he was first
                             running for a minor office. He suggested to a crony that they circulate the story his opponent
                             had performed unnatural acts with farm animals. “But Lyndon, you know that’s not true.”
                             “Blank yes, but let’s make the SOB deny it.” A bold stroke of the brush and maybe a little will
                             splatter and stick.

                             B. Hussein Obama and his mentor Rev. Wright both talk about slavery, and Rev. Wright in
                             particular trash the “white man” for all the woes of the black man. Why is it that they never
                             mention the FACT that the ARABS kidnapped the black people and sold them into slavery?
                             They had British and Dutch “Blackbirders” transport 600,000 of them to this country, where
                             they have increased to 40 million!! Some hardship. How many black people, excluding those
                             who returned and established Liberia, have gone back to Africa? How many would go back
                             now?
                             As a lifelong conservative, I’m advocating that we all support abortion on demand and same-
                             sex marriage! Eventually we’ll run out of liberal Democrats!

                             Steve from Texass isn’t a liar, he’s a victim of far right Christian Fascist brainwashing, bigotry,
                             racism, and homophobia that runs rampant more in the Bushlands of Texass and Floriduh than
                             anywhere else in the USA. Poor Steve suffers from a simpleton’s view of the political
                             landscape in the US. But he shouldn’t feel too bad about that because it’s easy to see the
                             majority of US voters are simpletons as well given Bush even had a 1st term, much less a
                             2nd…

                             re Texass Steve in “democrats are socialist”

                             Based on Hillary and Obama’s public statements, manifestos, interviews and, especially voting
                             records in Congress, along with every Democratic candidate but Kucinich, they’re all ‘right
                             authoritarian’ according to Political Compass, a completely non-partisan organization.

                             rather than consisting of hard and fast quadrants. The one-dimensional categories of ‘right’
                             and ‘left’ is simply overly simplistic from rating only the economic and not the social aspects of
                             politics. “Dennis Kucinich and Ralph Nader are depicted on the extreme left in an American
                             context, they would simply be mainstream social democrats within the wider political landscape
                             of Europe. Similarly, Hillary Clinton is popularly perceived as a leftist in the United States while
                             in any other western democracy her record is that of a mainstream conservative.”

                             On this vastly superior mulit-dimentional view of the Political landscape, note Hitler too is in the
                             fascist ‘right authoritarian’ quadrant and not the fascist [totalitarian] communist left side. Note
                             also that according to the voting record, speeches, intervies etc., the Right Wing Texass
                             Evangelical Ron Paul, with his following of left and right wing idiotic Paulite Cult, is also not the
                             [Neo or right wing] Libertarian he claimed, but a right authoritarian [a conservative at best].
                             Liberals in America also are apparently duped quite easily.

                             re. TexAss Steve in “pack your stuff and leave the USA”

                             There’s an old flash back in redux to exactly the same false dilemma [a fallacy for those who
                             are rationally challenged] the right wing cold war mongers of the Vietnam era shouted in
                             ‘America, Love It or Leave It”….

                             As for Steve’s absurd hypocritical rant on what liberals are or are not, like ‘bigotrious’ [must be
                             a word in a bogus TexAss dictionary] it appears Steve, like most in Texas, suffer from Right
                             Wing Authoritarian [RWA] Personality Disorder – A particular personality type drawn to the
                             ideology of fascism. The RWA personality ‘disorder’ develops from early childhood
                             experiences particularly in dogmatic, and strict authoritarian Christian families.

                             Social Dominance Orientation (SDO) and Right Wing Authoritarianism (RWA) are well-studied
                             variables in attitudes to measure intergroup dominance and submission to authority,
                             respectively. They are important, and fairly recent developments in the study of psychology,
                             sociology and behavioral science going back to the end of World War II. Then a new field in
                             Behavioral Science to hopefully explain and identify how and why Hitler gained so much
                             support from the German people. They are personality variables perhaps even more relevant
                             now than in Hitler’s Germany to understand the mass psychosis affecting the 10s of millions of
                             muddled minds in the huddled masses of America today.

                             SDO is associated with racism, warmongering (Pratto, Sidanius, Stallworth & Malle, 1994) and
                             attitudes about women’s rights (Heaven, 1999). Whereas RWA is associated with xenophobia,
                             homophobia and sexism (Altemeyer, 1998; Duckitt, 2001). SDO and RWA together are
                             described as ‘two sides of the same coin’ because the measures are interrelated and non-
                             overlapping as unique predictors of prejudiced attitudes (Altemeyer, 1998). Both SDO and
                             RWA are ‘ideological attitude’ factors in personality.

                             The authoritarian personality is characterized as conventional, submissive to authority, and
                             aggressive toward deviants and outsiders (Altemeyer, 1981). Most freethinkers can easily
                             recognize this RWA personality that shares similar characteristics or ‘traits’ with the ‘true
                             believer’ from: excessive conformity; submissiveness to authority; intolerance; insecurity;
                             superstition and; ridged, stereotyped thought patterns. All the preceeding characteristics are
                             identified by German sociologist and philosopher, Theodor W. Adorno as traits of an
                             Authoritarian Personality.

                             Members of large authoritarian groups, regardless if religious, political or fraternal, are to a
                             large degree, externally directed. Their immense need for external direction drives them to join
                             mass movements by the droves to follow a charismatic leader. As long as dependent minded
                             followers believe, their leader can get away with anything. A common hatred, enemy, or devil is
                             essential to the success of both their leaders and their groups characterized by an ‘us versus
                             them’ attitude of bigotry, and hate towards outsiders. Their internal dependence on external
                             group thought and direction is a primary reason they’ve been so successful at imposing
                             authoritarian rule throughout history using a few select faith-based leaders. The most extreme
                             racist hate groups in America like the KKK, Aryan Nation and others, all have a Christian
                             identity that supercedes their bigoted racial supremacy. Right wing political groups in America
                             also have a primary Christian identity that supercedes their underlying right wing political
                             goals.

                             “High RWAs are not likely to come up with the answers to our global problems. They are far too
                             ethnocentric. Perhaps the most striking aspect of the simulation was how automatically right-
                             wing authoritarians, placed in a room filled with people rather like themselves, still divided the
                             world into small enclaves of ‘Us’ versus the global ‘Them’.” Bob Altmeyer’s conclusion to an
                             experiment including dominating authoritarians [High RWAs] amongst a second group of
                             authoritarian followers in “What Happens When Authoritarians Inherit the Earth? A Simulation”,
                             Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy, Vol. 3, No. 1, 2003

                             Perhaps Mike Hersh sums up the RWA personality disorder the best not in the behavioral
                             science sense, but in an empirical or observational style in the following excerpts from his
                             article “What scares right Wingers to the Bone?”

                             “What scares right wingers to the bone? Freedom. Free speech. Free thoughts. Free people.
                             Why? They feel insecure in an uncertain universe. Right wingers crave order and simplicity,
                             and will impose these things where they are not and should never be. Right wingers are
                             theocrats and pseudo-libertarian Social Darwinists or even fascists who embrace authority and
                             power over the individual. Dissent threatens right wingers’ fragile sense of security. Right
                             wingers’ reverence for authority makes them believe whatever their superiors tell them to
                             believe. Their fear and insecurity make them shun the unknown and prevents them from
                             questioning tradition or thinking in new ways. I’d say right wingers demand that everyone think

                             whatever they think but right wingers don’t think. They listen and obey. Free thinking threatens
                             right wingers. It weakens their precarious hold on their make-believe world.

                             Right wingers dislike education and they loath science. New information and the uncertainty
                             fostered by the free flow of fresh thinking undermine their sense of stability. They are still in
                             denial about evolution! Right wingers believe superstitions and embrace propaganda. They
                             ignore information that challenges their prejudices and preconceptions. They therefore lack
                             judgment and eschew conception. Right wingers believe in absurd contradictions, impervious
                             to logic or education. Right wingers flock to cults of personality. Right wingers care about their
                             feelings, not facts. Facts must either support rigid right wing beliefs, or else the facts must be
                             wrong. Those who present facts which contradict right wing dogma must be evil.

                             Right wingers support idiotic, even fatal policies because they place nonsense over knowledge.
                             They believe using condoms increases the chance of pregnancy and STDs. They think racism
                             is OK, but pointing out racism is playing the race card. Poor white male right wingers blame
                             poor non-whites and non-males for the injustices rich white males commit. Right wingers
                             support the policies which comprise class warfare, but whine when anyone demonstrates the
                             injustice of robbing the needy to enrich the greedy. Poor and working class right wingers
                             believe increasing their taxes makes them richer, if Enron and Bill Gates get huge tax cuts.
                             Right wingers support theocracy and fascism — actually craving a unified authority over their
                             lives and even their afterlives! They support censorship. They want to impose their religious
                             views on everyone. They want to punish anyone who strays from the fold. They brutally
                             suppress anyone who questions authority, and they always obey abusive controllers. They are
                             afraid of their own freedom. They are even more afraid of yours.
                             None of this would really matter, except for the tendency of right wingers to burn books; burn
                             crosses, and burn people at the stake — although they tend not to do that so much any more.
                             Lately they beat to death gays, firebomb nightclubs and women’s clinics, assassinate doctors,
                             and vote for other right wingers. What scares right wingers to the bone? Essays like this,

                             TO: sagacious,

                             Surely, your name is self chosen, especially with the liberal/socialist/marxist/commie hate that
                             drools from your backside that you obviously mistake for your mouth.

                             So, “sagacious”, do tell us. If a man with TWO Masters Degrees in business and history from
                             Harvard and Yale is as “dumb” as you drool, that must surely mean that only someone with a
                             minimum of THREE Masters Degrees can be even mildly intelligent, correct?

                             We’d all just love to hear about YOUR educational accomplishments, realizing of course, that
                             you have the minimum THREE Masters Degrees to place yourself in the sub-moronic category
                             according to your “definition”.

                             This is personally directed to adnihilo, an extremely typical leftist liberal.

                             Why in the hell did your mother give you such an idiotic name or did you conjure it up yourself?

                             As far as being a victim or suffering from anything, I’ll admit I am a victim of immature name
                             calling from liberals like you. I do suffer from liberal policies that have almost destroyed the
                             America I grew up in.

                             But my Christian faith keeps me strong enough to over come the hatred from people like you. I
                             can see your religion is humanism.

                             With your insults to the state of Texas and Florida you are only showing your ass and it’s easy
                             to see that you have a lot of hate and bitterness deep inside your soul and I pity you.

                             Like I said in previous comments that you have read, you are the definition of the angry leftist
                             who can’t seem to understand that democracy requires democratic political and social equality
                             for all people of both sides of the political spectrum. Leftist liberals try their best to make
                             conservatives and traditionalist “feel” guilty of their values and beliefs and emotion is their tool
                             to gain favor with the unsuspecting naive mind.

                             You spout off all your school taught disinformation that you yourself believe and it seems that
                             you don’t have anything else better to do.Try taking it easy, you might enjoy life a little more.

                             I’m not going to bother with addressing all your bullshit because most rational people don’t
                             know about that stuff and don’t have a need for it. But there are those who are constantly
                             looking for meaning in their lives and you are definitely one of those unfortunate fools.

                             It seems to me that you are a black woman who has spent too much time in school and you
                             have deep racism in your heart and mind. Your vocabulary is over kill and meaningless and
                             you wasted your time trying to make me and other “Right Wingers” feel bad about ourselves. If
                             you read your own hate filled diatribe again you will be the one who is guilty of hate
                             mongering.

                             To you adnihilo, I give thanks for reassuring me of my beliefs and values as a conservative
                             traditionalist Christian.

                             I would like to give recognition and say thank you for your support to Mr.Kenneth, John from
                             Texas, Tony from PA, Jim and T and also to MSGH (Ms Maureen) for the definition of
                             kakistocracy which is what I believe our failed government has become.

                             God bless you and may God Save America.

                             re. Stevo – This is personally directed to adnihilo, an extremely typical leftist liberal.

                             If by “extremely typical leftist liberal” you infer I’m a ‘commie pinko American hater’ like the
                             typical American Christian fascist suffering from RWA [Right Wing Authoritarian] Personality
                             Disorder, you’d be completely wrong. As Bill Maher put it, “I love America. It’s Americans I
                             can’t stand.”

                             In your simpleton right vs left political view adhering to an ‘us versus them’ absolutist Christian
                             philosophy of hate, how do you know, or even assume I’m ‘an extremely typical leftist liberal’?
                             Economics aside, I’m a libertarian strongly opposed to the fascist [authoritarian] government
                             rule Christians like yourself embrace from only being taught WHAT to think instead of learning
                             HOW to think.

                             re. Why in the hell did your mother give you such an idiotic name or did you conjure it up
                             yourself?

                             Irrelevant, and/or ‘non sequitur’. But if for once in your life you want to learn something other
                             than what you’ve been spoon fed, just look it up in that ‘idiotic’ latin dictionary…

                             re. As far as being a victim or suffering from anything, I’ll admit I am a victim of immature name
                             calling from liberals like you. I do suffer from liberal policies that have almost destroyed the
                             America I grew up in.

                             I didn’t personally attack you, much less even blame you for being a victim of an intolerant
                             Christian upbringing that assuredly caused the ‘ideological attitudes’ you embrace from a RWA
                             [Right Wing Authoritarian] Personality Disorder.

                             re. TX Steve – But my Christian faith keeps me strong enough to over come the hatred from
                             people like you. I can see your religion is humanism.

                             I embrace no religion defined in any dictionary as a strong belief in a supernatural power or
                             powers that control human destiny. Unlike what’s been forced fed into your brain since a child,
                             faith [confidence] in age-old mythological fiction [lies] will not keep you or anyone intellectually
                             strong, but just the opposite.

                             Faith is the antithesis to reason, a destructive force to critical thinking and the quickest way to
                             irrational actions. It becomes a vile and vicious America when so many of its citizens are so far
                             from individual independence by combining a nationalist cause with a Christian identity based
                             on a fallacious faith-based belief system in an imaginary sky god. Faith results in the very
                             foundation of intolerance from its lack of critical thinking. Faith is an act of mental destruction. If
                             there is no evidence for a claim, then accepting it is irrational. Tolerance is a trait that the firm,
                             devout Christian cannot possibly possess.

                             “I am the Lord thy God and thou shalt have no other gods before me”, saith Jehovah. Which
                             means in plain English, that whatever any given god and his clergy believe, it must be
                             absolutely, positively true; and whatever any other person or group believes must be
                             absolutely, positive false. Such required dogma in religion for an adherent is impossible without
                             this necessary intolerance that is ultimately displayed as very real expressions of bigotry. This
                             sort of absolutist, perfectionist, two dimensional thinking is the prime creator of the two most
                             destructive human emotions: anxiety and hostility.

                             When someone claims to have supernatural knowledge, or the ability to gain knowledge in a
                             way that you are unable to, their claims cannot be considered valid. If someone claims to be
                             able to speak to their god, and tells you what god demands, you have no reason to accept it as
                             true. In fact, it should be rejected. If one claims to have knowledge which you are incapable of
                             achieving, his beliefs must be rejected. If one has to accept the knowledge of others, he must
                             use reason in order to decide which others to listen to. Again, if there is no evidence or
                             contrary evidence for accepting a person’s beliefs, it is not an act of reason. It is an act of faith.

                             When accepting a statement as true, there are two basic methods. The first is reason. It is
                             when the known evidence points to the statement being true, and when the truth of the
                             statement doesn’t contradict other knowledge. The second is faith. It is when one accepts a
                             statement as true without evidence for it, or in the face of evidence against it. There’s a lot of

                             believe something, you must be taking it on faith. This is a denial of the fundamental distinction
                             between reason and faith. It pretends that evidence for or against an idea is irrelevant.

                             The result of using faith consistently is a mental illness called psychosis accompanied by a
                             complete inability to think in rational terms. Without any criteria for accepting a statement as
                             true, every random idea, whether true or false, would be just as likely to be accepted.
                             Contradictions would exist. No higher-level abstractions could be made. Faith nullifies the mind.
                             To the degree ideas are taken on faith, the process of thinking is subverted.

                             If there is no evidence for a claim, then accepting it is irrational. It is more likely to be false then
                             true (since there are more false ideas then true ones, being that their is only one reality).

                             Psychosis is defined as a severe mental disorder in which contact with reality is lost or highly
                             distorted. Religious Psychosis is a life philosophy based in faith on the supernatural [from
                             mythological lies]. It is the predominant cause of the RWA [Right Wing Authoritarian]
                             Personality Disorder. The degree of religious psychosis is in direct proportion to the level of
                             faith. The stronger the faith, the greater the level of psychosis.

                             The greater the level of religious psychosis, the more difficult it is to cure this mental illness.
                             Eventually, even when confronted with evidence against a faith based life philosophy, the
                             extreme religious psychotic has become so dependent on their mytholigical fiction they reject
                             the evidence fearing their entire world view will collapse. Thus the reason religious psychosis is
                             so difficult to cure. They psychosis itself makes them unable to admit or comprehend that
                             they’ve lost contact with reality.

                             re. TX Stephanie – With your insults to the state of Texas and Florida you are only showing
                             your ass and it’s easy to see that you have a lot of hate and bitterness deep inside your soul
                             and I pity you.

                             I surely don’t need or want the pity of a desperate psychotic clinging to age-old mytholigical
                             fiction and faith in some imaginary Sky Daddy there Stevo. Attacking me personally with your
                             irrelevant ad hominem fallacies proves nothing but an inability to think rationally Stevo. Citing
                             FACTS about the Bushland State of Texass as the #1 State in America for Christian Identity
                             Hate Groups is not an insult – it’s reality Stevo. Attacking this factual reality with your
                             fallacious argument attacking me personally as hateful and bitter doesn’t change the fact that
                             White Christian hate, bigotry, racism and resulting violence runs rampant in Texas.

                             Texass is #1 for White Christian hate and bigotry in America towards any non-Christian or any
                             non-white race. There are more white Christian hate groups per capita in Texass than any
                             other state in America. White Christian Hate Groups in Texass range from Neo-Nazi, Neo-
                             Confederate, Christian Identity, KKK, White Supremacist, and Skinhead with multiple ‘chapters’
                             of many throughout the state including, but not limited to:

                             The 30’s were a decade in which Nazis openly paraded, unopposed, in the streets of America
                             and were supported by many. Much of the details of 1930’s fascism are still shrouded in
                             secrecy. It has been over a half-century since the end of the war, yet news is still surfacing of
                             corporate America’s dealings with the Nazis. As of yet, no one has exposed, in a
                             comprehensive manner, the connections between the 1930’s fascists and today’s American
                             right wing.
                             It is no coincidence the racism and hate found in all of today’s far right Christian hate groups
                             named above evolved directly from the 100s of Christian Identity Fascist groups that existed in
                             the 1930s.

                             Just as economic hardships in Germany led to the rise of Hitler, many Americans hit by the
                             Great Depression joined the fascist ranks. Due to the natural congeniality between the robber
                             barons and the corporate state of fascism, most of America’s leading industrialists became
                             America’s leading supporters of fascism. These leading American industrialists were largely
                             responsible for bringing Hitler to power and for building Hitler’s war machine. The 30’s were a
                             decade in which Nazis openly paraded, unopposed, in the streets of America and were
                             supported by many. Much of the details of 1930’s fascism are still shrouded in secrecy. It has
                             been over a half-century since the end of the war, yet news is still surfacing of corporate
                             America’s dealings with the Nazis. As of yet, no one has exposed, in a comprehensive manner,
                             the connections between the 1930’s fascists and today’s American right wing.

                             Fascist right wing groups have grown exponentially in membership since Bush ‘took’ office.
                             Their roots are found in the American Fascist movement of the 1930s that almost overthrew
                             FDR with the help of Bush’s grand daddy and a host of other leading industrialists making up
                             Corporate America. It can strongly argued George Bush succeeded where his grand daddy
                             Prescot failed with his attempted fascist coup of American democracy. The socio-economic

                             and political fragmentation during the 1930s was similar, if not even greater than it is today.
                             There were well over 700 different fascist groups during the 30s all with a solid Christian
                             Identity. The American-National-Socialist Party, German-American Bund, Christian Front, the
                             Silver Shirts, America First Committee, the Christian Mobilizer, National Worker’s League and
                             the Committee of One Million were some of the more prominent Christian fascist groups at the
                             time. There are so many parallels between the Christian fascist groups of the 1930s and those
                             seen today under the banner of White Supremacy it is almost impossible to differentiate
                             between the hate for all races and religions other than their own espoused in their mutual
                             goals.

                             re. TX Steverino – Like I said in previous comments that you have read, you are the definition
                             of the angry leftist

                             No, I’m YOUR definition of an angry lefist Stevo. Again, economics aside, politically I’m a
                             libertarian strongly opposed to the Fascist [authoritarian] governmental rule RWA Christians
                             like yourself are inherently drawn to.

                             re. who can’t seem to understand that democracy requires democratic political and social
                             equality for all people of both sides of the political spectrum.

                             You’re still embracing the old one-dimensional categories of ‘right’ and ‘left’ that solely relates
                             to the economic political spectrum Stevo. A simplistic view that doesn’t relate to the social
                             dimension in politics. Again, I suggest you increase your comprehension of the political
                             landscape by advancing beyond your simplistic left to right economic view of it to a more
                             complete view including the social dimension seeing where your political compass is at here:

                             re. TX Stephy – Leftist liberals try their best to make conservatives and traditionalist “feel”
                             guilty of their values and beliefs

                             Conservative means resistant to change. Traditionalist means one who is stubbornly narrow-
                             minded [word web]. If you think these are traits to admire like ‘faith’, there is little doubt you
                             suffer from the RWA personality disorder and the mental illness of religious psychosis. Tired

                             re. TX Stephorino – emotion is their [Liberals] tool to gain favor with the unsuspecting naive
                             mind.

                             Perhaps this is true in some opposite surreal twilight zoned reality populated by fellow religious
                             psychotics, but not in this one and ONLY reality the sane exist in Stevo. Republicans are
                             infamous for using ‘emotion’ as a tool to ‘gain favor with the unsuspecting naive mind’, not
                             liberals. The very fact that liberals are known as ‘reality based’ [in reason] as opposed to
                             religious right or republicans known as ‘faith based’ [in unproven facts, fiction and superstition]
                             should tell you which group has a more ‘naive mind’. Granted, liberals too can have naive
                             minds [as in ex-liberal Paulites], but any psychotic mind that puts ‘faith’ in imaginary sky gods
                             never proven to exist is what I would deem not only ‘naive’, but childlike from a need for an all
                             powerful father figure, or ‘sky daddy’.

                             GOP’s ‘Swift boating’ personal attack tactic is an emotive based one created by a right wing
                             Texan. Personal attacks like what you see on McClellan now from Fascist Fox News and the
                             white house are all emotive based to dismiss reality and cover up the truth. Rush Limbaugh
                             and his ‘ditto’ heads are renown for emotive based personal attacks on anything opposing their
                             Neofascist [same as NeoCon] mind set.

                             re. TX Etien [French for steve] – Try taking it easy, you might enjoy life a little more.

                             Please don’t make your idiotic personal assumptions or conclusions about whether or not I
                             enjoy life. If anything it’s the faith based who enjoy life far less from moralistic absurdities
                             restricting pleasure from life due to an imaginary life envisioned after dead.

                             re. TX Esteban [Spanish for steve] -I’m not going to bother with addressing all your bullshit
                             because most rational people don’t know about that stuff and don’t have a need for it.

                             You’re dead wrong of course from again this psychotic faux reality you exist in from a faith
                             based life philosophy. It’s only the irrational or ‘true believers’ [faith based] that ‘don’t know
                             about that stuff’ I wrote on the RWA personality, and its direct cause from being raised in an
                             authoritarian religious environment like Texass. Like Reason, Behavioral Science, or any kind
                             of science is the antithesis of Faith espousing beliefs in unsupported facts, mytholigical lies and
                             fiction.

                             re. TX Steve – But there are those who are constantly looking for meaning in their lives and
                             you are definitely one of those unfortunate fools.

                             Yikes – that’s so ignorant it’s hilarious coming from a Christian! There is no such thing as
                             ‘destiny’ or pre-ordained ‘meaning in life’. It is what it is and that’s all that there is just life
                             Popeye’s view of himself. What would be hilarious, if not so really sad is the intolerant,
                             desperate need from monotheists unable to face reality in the only existence known here on
                             earth. A failure to face reality from a childish and immature fear of their life ending when the
                             brain dies. Monotheists are so fearful of death that in order to convince themselves they’ll have
                             a life ever after, they attempt to kill anyone with differing belief systems that don’t agree with
                             theirs. They even kill those of the same belief system because they’re so intolerant, they can’t
                             even tolerate themselves [like 30 year war killing 10 million Catholic-Protestan Christians].

                             Just because life is so precarious and uncertain, and because millions of people think that they
                             cannot handle the changes and uncertainty life offers, especially its finality, the believer invents
                             absolutistic gods in pretending there is some final, invariant answer to things. Fooling oneself
                             with such delusions stagnates growth and maturity. It is like the fatherless child dreaming up
                             an imaginary father while insisting that this dream-father actually exists. Unfortunately it is the
                             devout faith-based religious believer in their imaginary skygod father-figure that suffers by the
                             billions from this mass form of delusionary pscyhotic insanity. It resulting in insane behavior
                             causing a far worse level of mass chaos in the world as we see today in the mid-east, but has
                             been going on past, present and sadly, will continue in the future unless this psychoti insanity
                             found in monotheism is stopped cold.

                             own traits and emotions are attributed to someone else…. Are you a member of one of those
                             many dozens of White Supremacy Christian Identity hate groups mentioned earlier? If such a
                             proud white guy I’d think you’d admit membership in the KKK or some other similar Christian
                             group;-]

                             re. TX Stevo – Your vocabulary is over kill and meaningless and you wasted your time trying to
                             make me and other “Right Wingers” feel bad about ourselves. If you read your own hate filled
                             diatribe again you will be the one who is guilty of hate mongering.

                             It’s unfortunate for you Steve that’s you’ve a limited vocabulary from a less then par Texass
                             education Stevo. It’s my ‘normal’ vocabulary used – I don’t adjust it to meet the needs of the
                             uninformed, the uneducated, the mentally challenged, or the emotionally and intellectually blind,
                             deaf or dumb.

                             re. Steverino – To you adnihilo, I give thanks for reassuring me of my beliefs and values as a
                             conservative traditionalist Christian.

                             Again by definition you apparently put value on being resistance to change and remaining
                             stubbornly narrow-minded [according to Word Web dictionary;-]. I have no empathy for you
                             even though you are a victim of this authoritarian Christian upbringing that caused your
                             religious psychosis and RWA personality disorder. You could change but the insansity is so
                             deep, you will refuse to till the day you become maggot meat. Although if you truly ‘believe’ you
                             can always go bravely fight ‘n die in the latest Judeo-Christian Crusade against Islam in the
                             middle east and prove me wrong by arising from the dead to come back and haunt me. Just
                             think, you’ll be just like Jesus and Osama bin Laden;-]

                             re. Texass Steve – God bless you and may God Save America.

                             Calling on the imaginary Christian Sky God to bless or save America is like asking Santa Claus
                             to save or ‘bless’ US. Here you have given a sound reason why America is likely doomed due
                             to the likes of Christian right wingnuts like Reagan and Bush – there’s no sky god to bless,
                             much less save America and there’s surely not enough sane, rational Americans to save it
                             from itself…

                             re. Stevo – This is personally directed to adnihilo, an extremely typical leftist liberal.

                             If by “extremely typical leftist liberal” you infer I’m a ‘commie pinko American hater’ like the
                             typical American Christian fascist suffering from RWA [Right Wing Authoritarian] Personality
                             Disorder, you’d be completely wrong. As Bill Maher put it, “I love America. It’s Americans I
                             can’t stand.”

                             In your simpleton right vs left political view adhering to an ‘us versus them’ absolutist Christian
                             philosophy of hate, how do you know, or even assume I’m ‘an extremely typical leftist liberal’?
                             Economics aside, I’m a libertarian strongly opposed to the fascist [authoritarian] government
                             rule Christians like yourself embrace from only being taught WHAT to think instead of learning
                             HOW to think.

                             re. Why in the hell did your mother give you such an idiotic name or did you conjure it up
                             yourself?

                             Irrelevant, and/or ‘non sequitur’. But if for once in your life you want to learn something other
                             than what you’ve been spoon fed, just look it up in that ‘idiotic’ latin dictionary…

                             re. As far as being a victim or suffering from anything, I’ll admit I am a victim of immature name
                             calling from liberals like you. I do suffer from liberal policies that have almost destroyed the
                             America I grew up in.

                             I didn’t personally attack you, much less even blame you for being a victim of an intolerant
                             Christian upbringing that assuredly caused the ‘ideological attitudes’ you embrace from a RWA
                             [Right Wing Authoritarian] Personality Disorder.

                             re. TX Steve – But my Christian faith keeps me strong enough to over come the hatred from
                             people like you. I can see your religion is humanism.

                             I embrace no religion defined in any dictionary as a strong belief in a supernatural power or
                             powers that control human destiny. Unlike what’s been forced fed into your brain since a child,
                             faith [confidence] in age-old mythological fiction [lies] will not keep you or anyone intellectually
                             strong, but just the opposite.

                             Faith is the antithesis to reason, a destructive force to critical thinking and the quickest way to
                             irrational actions. It becomes a vile and vicious America when so many of its citizens are so far
                             from individual independence by combining a nationalist cause with a Christian identity based
                             on a fallacious faith-based belief system in an imaginary sky god. Faith results in the very
                             foundation of intolerance from its lack of critical thinking. Faith is an act of mental destruction. If
                             there is no evidence for a claim, then accepting it is irrational. Tolerance is a trait that the firm,
                             devout Christian cannot possibly possess.

                             “I am the Lord thy God and thou shalt have no other gods before me”, saith Jehovah. Which
                             means in plain English, that whatever any given god and his clergy believe, it must be
                             absolutely, positively true; and whatever any other person or group believes must be
                             absolutely, positive false. Such required dogma in religion for an adherent is impossible without
                             this necessary intolerance that is ultimately displayed as very real expressions of bigotry. This
                             sort of absolutist, perfectionist, two dimensional thinking is the prime creator of the two most
                             destructive human emotions: anxiety and hostility.

                             When someone claims to have supernatural knowledge, or the ability to gain knowledge in a
                             way that you are unable to, their claims cannot be considered valid. If someone claims to be
                             able to speak to their god, and tells you what god demands, you have no reason to accept it as
                             true. In fact, it should be rejected. If one claims to have knowledge which you are incapable of
                             achieving, his beliefs must be rejected. If one has to accept the knowledge of others, he must
                             use reason in order to decide which others to listen to. Again, if there is no evidence or
                             contrary evidence for accepting a person’s beliefs, it is not an act of reason. It is an act of faith.

                             When accepting a statement as true, there are two basic methods. The first is reason. It is
                             when the known evidence points to the statement being true, and when the truth of the
                             statement doesn’t contradict other knowledge. The second is faith. It is when one accepts a
                             statement as true without evidence for it, or in the face of evidence against it. There’s a lot of
                             confusion about what exactly faith is. Many people confuse belief with faith. It’s said that if you
                             believe something, you must be taking it on faith. This is a denial of the fundamental distinction
                             between reason and faith. It pretends that evidence for or against an idea is irrelevant.

                             The result of using faith consistently is a mental illness called psychosis accompanied by a
                             complete inability to think in rational terms. Without any criteria for accepting a statement as
                             true, every random idea, whether true or false, would be just as likely to be accepted.
                             Contradictions would exist. No higher-level abstractions could be made. Faith nullifies the mind.
                             To the degree ideas are taken on faith, the process of thinking is subverted.

                             If there is no evidence for a claim, then accepting it is irrational. It is more likely to be false then
                             true (since there are more false ideas then true ones, being that their is only one reality).

                             Psychosis is defined as a severe mental disorder in which contact with reality is lost or highly
                             distorted. Religious Psychosis is a life philosophy based in faith on the supernatural [from
                             mythological lies]. It is the predominant cause of the RWA [Right Wing Authoritarian]
                             Personality Disorder. The degree of religious psychosis is in direct proportion to the level of
                             faith. The stronger the faith, the greater the level of psychosis.

                             The greater the level of religious psychosis, the more difficult it is to cure this mental illness.
                             Eventually, even when confronted with evidence against a faith based life philosophy, the
                             extreme religious psychotic has become so dependent on their mytholigical fiction they reject
                             the evidence fearing their entire world view will collapse. Thus the reason religious psychosis is
                             so difficult to cure. They psychosis itself makes them unable to admit or comprehend that
                             they’ve lost contact with reality.

                             re. TX Stephanie – With your insults to the state of Texas and Florida you are only showing
                             your ass and it’s easy to see that you have a lot of hate and bitterness deep inside your soul
                             and I pity you.

                             I surely don’t need or want the pity of a desperate psychotic clinging to age-old mytholigical
                             fiction and faith in some imaginary Sky Daddy there Stevo. Attacking me personally with your
                             irrelevant ad hominem fallacies proves nothing but an inability to think rationally Stevo. Citing
                             FACTS about the Bushland State of Texass as the #1 State in America for Christian Identity
                             Hate Groups is not an insult – it’s reality Stevo. Attacking this factual reality with your
                             fallacious argument attacking me personally as hateful and bitter doesn’t change the fact that
                             White Christian hate, bigotry, racism and resulting violence runs rampant in Texas.

                             Texass is #1 for White Christian hate and bigotry in America towards any non-Christian or any
                             non-white race. There are more white Christian hate groups per capita in Texass than any
                             other state in America. White Christian Hate Groups in Texass range from Neo-Nazi, Neo-
                             Confederate, Christian Identity, KKK, White Supremacist, and Skinhead with multiple ‘chapters’

                             The 30’s were a decade in which Nazis openly paraded, unopposed, in the streets of America
                             and were supported by many. Much of the details of 1930’s fascism are still shrouded in
                             secrecy. It has been over a half-century since the end of the war, yet news is still surfacing of
                             corporate America’s dealings with the Nazis. As of yet, no one has exposed, in a
                             comprehensive manner, the connections between the 1930’s fascists and today’s American
                             right wing.
                             It is no coincidence the racism and hate found in all of today’s far right Christian hate groups
                             named above evolved directly from the 100s of Christian Identity Fascist groups that existed in
                             the 1930s.

                             Just as economic hardships in Germany led to the rise of Hitler, many Americans hit by the
                             Great Depression joined the fascist ranks. Due to the natural congeniality between the robber
                             barons and the corporate state of fascism, most of America’s leading industrialists became
                             America’s leading supporters of fascism. These leading American industrialists were largely
                             responsible for bringing Hitler to power and for building Hitler’s war machine. The 30’s were a
                             decade in which Nazis openly paraded, unopposed, in the streets of America and were
                             supported by many. Much of the details of 1930’s fascism are still shrouded in secrecy. It has
                             been over a half-century since the end of the war, yet news is still surfacing of corporate
                             America’s dealings with the Nazis. As of yet, no one has exposed, in a comprehensive manner,
                             the connections between the 1930’s fascists and today’s American right wing.

                             Fascist right wing groups have grown exponentially in membership since Bush ‘took’ office.
                             Their roots are found in the American Fascist movement of the 1930s that almost overthrew
                             FDR with the help of Bush’s grand daddy and a host of other leading industrialists making up
                             Corporate America. It can strongly argued George Bush succeeded where his grand daddy
                             Prescot failed with his attempted fascist coup of American democracy. The socio-economic
                             and political fragmentation during the 1930s was similar, if not even greater than it is today.
                             There were well over 700 different fascist groups during the 30s all with a solid Christian
                             Identity. The American-National-Socialist Party, German-American Bund, Christian Front, the
                             Silver Shirts, America First Committee, the Christian Mobilizer, National Worker’s League and
                             the Committee of One Million were some of the more prominent Christian fascist groups at the
                             time. There are so many parallels between the Christian fascist groups of the 1930s and those
                             seen today under the banner of White Supremacy it is almost impossible to differentiate
                             between the hate for all races and religions other than their own espoused in their mutual
                             goals.

                             of the angry leftist

                             No, I’m YOUR definition of an angry lefist Stevo. Again, economics aside, politically I’m a
                             libertarian strongly opposed to the Fascist [authoritarian] governmental rule RWA Christians
                             like yourself are inherently drawn to.

                             re. who can’t seem to understand that democracy requires democratic political and social
                             equality for all people of both sides of the political spectrum.

                             You’re still embracing the old one-dimensional categories of ‘right’ and ‘left’ that solely relates
                             to the economic political spectrum Stevo. A simplistic view that doesn’t relate to the social
                             dimension in politics. Again, I suggest you increase your comprehension of the political
                             landscape by advancing beyond your simplistic left to right economic view of it to a more
                             complete view including the social dimension seeing where your political compass is at here:

                             Conservative means resistant to change. Traditionalist means one who is stubbornly narrow-

                             infamous for using ‘emotion’ as a tool to ‘gain favor with the unsuspecting naive mind’, not
                             liberals. The very fact that liberals are known as ‘reality based’ [in reason] as opposed to
                             religious right or republicans known as ‘faith based’ [in unproven facts, fiction and superstition]
                             should tell you which group has a more ‘naive mind’. Granted, liberals too can have naive
                             minds [as in ex-liberal Paulites], but any psychotic mind that puts ‘faith’ in imaginary sky gods
                             never proven to exist is what I would deem not only ‘naive’, but childlike from a need for an all
                             powerful father figure, or ‘sky daddy’.

                             GOP’s ‘Swift boating’ personal attack tactic is an emotive based one created by a right wing
                             Texan. Personal attacks like what you see on McClellan now from Fascist Fox News and the
                             white house are all emotive based to dismiss reality and cover up the truth. Rush Limbaugh
                             and his ‘ditto’ heads are renown for emotive based personal attacks on anything opposing their
                             Neofascist [same as NeoCon] mind set.

                             re. TX Etien [French for steve] – Try taking it easy, you might enjoy life a little more.

                             Please don’t make your idiotic personal assumptions or conclusions about whether or not I
                             enjoy life. If anything it’s the faith based who enjoy life far less from moralistic absurdities
                             restricting pleasure from life due to an imaginary life envisioned after dead.

                             re. TX Esteban [Spanish for steve] -I’m not going to bother with addressing all your bullshit
                             because most rational people don’t know about that stuff and don’t have a need for it.

                             You’re dead wrong of course from again this psychotic faux reality you exist in from a faith
                             based life philosophy. It’s only the irrational or ‘true believers’ [faith based] that ‘don’t know
                             about that stuff’ I wrote on the RWA personality, and its direct cause from being raised in an
                             authoritarian religious environment like Texass. Like Reason, Behavioral Science, or any kind
                             of science is the antithesis of Faith espousing beliefs in unsupported facts, mytholigical lies and
                             fiction.

                             re. TX Steve – But there are those who are constantly looking for meaning in their lives and
                             you are definitely one of those unfortunate fools.

                             Yikes – that’s so ignorant it’s hilarious coming from a Christian! There is no such thing as
                             ‘destiny’ or pre-ordained ‘meaning in life’. It is what it is and that’s all that there is just life
                             Popeye’s view of himself. What would be hilarious, if not so really sad is the intolerant,
                             desperate need from monotheists unable to face reality in their only existence known here on
                             earth. Monotheists are so fearful of death that in order to convince themselves they’ll have a
                             life ever after, they been attempting to kill off anyone with differing belief systems since the
                             beginning of civilization. They even kill those of the same belief system because they’re so
                             intolerant they can’t even tolerate themselves.

                             Just because life is so precarious and uncertain, and because millions of people think that they
                             cannot handle the changes and uncertainty life offers, especially its finality, the believer invents
                             absolutistic gods in pretending there is some final, invariant answer to things. Fooling oneself
                             with such delusions stagnates growth and maturity. It is like the fatherless child dreaming up
                             an imaginary father while insisting that this dream-father actually exists. Unfortunately it is the
                             devout faith-based religious believer in their imaginary skygod father-figure that suffers by the
                             billions from this mass form of delusionary pscyhotic insanity. It resulting in insane behavior
                             causing a far worse level of mass chaos in the world as we see today in the mid-east, but has
                             been going on past, present and sadly, will continue in the future unless this psychoti insanity
                             found in monotheism is stopped cold.

                             re. TX Stephy – It seems to me that you are a black woman who has spent too much time in
                             school and you have deep racism in your heart and mind.

                             Now I’m a racist black woman who’s overeducated? You’ve got some projection problems there
                             Stevo… In psycho-analytical terms projecting refers to a defense mechanism by which your
                             own traits and emotions are attributed to someone else…. Are you a member of one of those
                             many dozens of White Supremacy Christian Identity hate groups mentioned earlier? If such a
                             proud white guy I’d think you’d admit membership in the KKK or some other similar Christian
                             group;-]

                             re. TX Stevo – Your vocabulary is over kill and meaningless and you wasted your time trying to
                             make me and other “Right Wingers” feel bad about ourselves. If you read your own hate filled
                             diatribe again you will be the one who is guilty of hate mongering.

                             It’s unfortunate for you Steve that’s you’ve a limited vocabulary from a less then par Texass
                             education Stevo. It’s my ‘normal’ vocabulary used – I don’t adjust it to meet the needs of the
                             uninformed, the uneducated, the mentally challenged, or the emotionally and intellectually blind,
                             deaf or dumb.

                             re. Steverino – To you adnihilo, I give thanks for reassuring me of my beliefs and values as a
                             conservative traditionalist Christian.

                             Again by definition you apparently put value on being resistance to change and remaining
                             stubbornly narrow-minded [according to Word Web dictionary;-]. I have no empathy for you
                             even though you are a victim of this authoritarian Christian upbringing that caused your
                             religious psychosis and RWA personality disorder. You could change but the insansity is so
                             deep, you will refuse to till the day you become maggot meat. Although if you truly ‘believe’ you
                             can always go bravely fight ‘n die in the latest Judeo-Christian Crusade against Islam in the
                             middle east and prove me wrong by arising from the dead to come back and haunt me. Just
                             think, you’ll be just like Jesus and Osama bin Laden;-]

                             Calling on the imaginary Christian Sky God to bless or save America is like asking Santa Claus
                             to save or ‘bless’ US. Here you have given a sound reason why America is likely doomed due
                             to the likes of Christian right wingnuts like Reagan and Bush – there’s no sky god to bless,
                             much less save America and there’s surely not enough sane, rational Americans to save it
                             from itself…

                             Now I’m a racist black woman who’s overeducated? You’ve got some projection problems there
                             Stevo… In psycho-analytical terms projecting refers to a defense mechanism by which your
                             own traits and emotions are attributed to someone else…. Are you a member of one of those
                             many dozens of White Supremacy Christian Identity hate groups mentioned earlier? If such a
                             proud white guy I’d think you’d admit membership in the KKK or some other similar Christian
                             group;-]

                             re. TX Stevo – Your vocabulary is over kill and meaningless and you wasted your time trying to
                             make me and other “Right Wingers” feel bad about ourselves. If you read your own hate filled
                             diatribe again you will be the one who is guilty of hate mongering.

                             It’s unfortunate for you Steve that’s you’ve a limited vocabulary from a less then par Texass
                             education Stevo. It’s my ‘normal’ vocabulary used – I don’t adjust it to meet the needs of the
                             uninformed, the uneducated, the mentally challenged, or the emotionally and intellectually blind,
                             deaf or dumb.

                             re. Steverino – To you adnihilo, I give thanks for reassuring me of my beliefs and values as a
                             conservative traditionalist Christian.

                             Again by definition you apparently put value on being resistance to change and remaining
                             stubbornly narrow-minded [according to Word Web dictionary;-]. I have no empathy for you
                             even though you are a victim of this authoritarian Christian upbringing that caused your
                             religious psychosis and RWA personality disorder. You could change but the insansity is so
                             deep, you will refuse to till the day you become maggot meat. Although if you truly ‘believe’ you
                             can always go bravely fight ‘n die in the latest Judeo-Christian Crusade against Islam in the
                             middle east and prove me wrong by arising from the dead to come back and haunt me. Just
                             think, you’ll be just like Jesus and Osama bin Laden;-]

                             re. Texass Steve – God bless you and may God Save America.

                             Calling on the imaginary Christian Sky God to bless or save America is like asking Santa Claus
                             to save or ‘bless’ US. Here you have given a sound reason why America is likely doomed due
                             to the likes of Christian right wingnuts like Reagan and Bush – there’s no sky god to bless,
                             much less save America and there’s surely not enough sane, rational Americans to save it
                             from itself…

                             I am a white woman raised proudly in the South, The Great State of Texas, to be exact. I was
                             married for twenty years to a black man and we have three children, all grown up and
                             responsible adults.

                             Mr. Obama and his circle of friends scare the hell out of me. I’ve been to many black churches,
                             and never have I heard a so-called preacher speak the way Rev. Wrong does from the pulpit.
                             I’ve seen racism on both ends of the spectrum. I always considered myself a Democrat.

                             What I see Democrat’s and what they are attempting to do to my country makes me sick. As
                             far as I’m concerned, Mr. Obama has set race relations in this country back fifty years. How in
                             the hell can he unite the country when all he has done is tear his own party apart. I’m still
                             waiting for him to admit there’s only 52 states, not 57. I would love to see a balck man elected
                             President, just not someone who thinks I’m too dumb to manage my own life, therefore
                             government should tell me how hot or cold to keep my house or what kind of vehicle I can
                             drive…..Oh yeah, I also think global warming is a hoax intended to slowly chip away all our
                             personal freedoms….

                             Kenneth in “Adnihilist: You are nuts! You`re the craziest reprobate leftwing whacko I`ve seen to
                             date”

                             This choice you make of stepping in to comment by voicing only your personally attacks on me
                             with your ad hominems also tells me you take the typical intolerant Christain ‘emotive based’
                             and cowardly approach to debate. You present only ad hominem fallacy [misconceptions from
                             incorrect reasoning] when personally attacking my character that fails to further your Christian
                             ‘cause’. In fact it only discredits your Christian cause…

                             Choosing to personally attack me only with ad hominem fallacies for hot having ‘moral
                             scruples’ while labeling me a leftwing ‘whacko’ while thumping your bible of bullshit says much
                             about you both [Kenneth and JimR]. It tells me you are both too lazy, too ignorant, too
                             ‘unreasonable’, and/or intellectually unable to dispute any portion of the topics presented on
                             Christian fascism, faith as an act of mental destruction, the RWA personality disorder, religious
                             psychosis, or anything else I wrote.

                             re. I couldn’t agree with you more about Adnihilist but you can never convince someone like
                             that they are wrong

                             That’s because in order to ‘convince’ anyone of anything you’ll need to present reason and
                             rationality in arguments you present. The religious psychosis afflicting any given monotheist
                             makes this wholly impossible.

                             Vickie from Texas in “I’ve been to many black churches, and never have I heard a so-called

                             Understand Obama is a victim by association to Wright only by [Fox] GOP attack tactics on
                             anyone who’s not republicanazi [I would not support any of the candidates since ALL are right

                             Apparently you didn’t get the news – the GOP propaganda machine called Fox ‘news’ admitted
                             to altering the 20 seconds of that video on Wright you refer to and taking it out of context. See
                             http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOdlnzkeoyQ&feature=related

                             And like the most of the country, you’re finding Obama guilty of whatever you’re accusing him
                             of merely from association by sitting in a church audience. You also cite mere opinion and
                             conjecture about Obama without supporting any of what you say with facts. It seems that
                             black debate team in Texas during the 20s or 30s seen in recent movie was so successful
                             because of such an inability in rational debate there in Texas….

                             anything at all for that matter that confronts the twilight zoned faith based faux reality you both
                             proselytise here.

                             For me it’s like relating to a child who still believes in Santa Claus because 100% of the time,
                             the sole response bible thumpers provide are these sort of fallacious and childish personal
                             attacks on character. If you can only present sticks and stones like schoolyard bullies than just
                             dummy up. It only illustrates what immature children you are in need of an invisible, imaginary
                             sky daddy to instill meaning into your existence from being unable to face the realities in it as
                             mere maggot meat in the end… The worst, most vile fallascious personal attacks always seem
                             to come from cloned Texas bible thumpers..

                             If you want an intelligent discussion that challenges your flawed belief system based in fiction,
                             than fine. It is the only way you can break free from this religious psychosis you suffer from and
                             alter the RWA personality disorder that accompanies your psychotic mental illness. If not, as
                             you’ve indicated, then just shut the #### up… I gave up trying to be ‘polite’ and courteous long
                             ago to the constant emotive based and wholly fallascious personal attacks from religious right
                             extremists, particularly from the TX Bushlands, but really anywhere in the US.

                             In fact I challenge you both along with ‘stevo’ there to a rational discussion on your flawed faith
                             based life philosophy. But not here for it is not the place. However if you are so ‘sure’ and
                             confident that your faith based beliefs are factual, reliable and true, then I suggest you put them
                             to the test at rational responders in the “Kill Em With Kindness Forum”
                             http://www.rationalresponders.com/forums/sapient/kill_em_with_kindness

                             There you will not personally be attacked for your convictions or beliefs like you do here in
                             personally attacking me instead of attacking the facts and reality behind the truth and reason
                             [veritas et ratio] of what I present. I’ll be looking for you, but I sincerely doubt any of you are
                             brave, confident or homo sapien [meaning thinking man] enough to accept the challenge as

                             you’re talking about.
                             I will however pray for you.

                             re. JimR in “Well, I guess I proved my case. Thanks for your ignorant post Adnihillist.

                             Proof? Are you truly that mentally ill from contact with reality being so completely lost? You
                             prove nothing but you are insane from this continuing illiterate ability to yet again personally
                             attack me with yet another ad hominem fallacy. All you have proven is that you are so mentally
                             deficient and intellectually challenged you can not verbalize anything but childish personal
                             attacks. You prove nothing but a complete failure to present yourself as a ‘homo sapien’
                             [thinking man] that yet again illustrates you as being something far less than human’ as a
                             hominid called homo religiousus.

                             re. JimR in “You will regret your comments someday, mark my word”

                             Making personal threats against me only further illustrates you are perhaps more than a
                             monkey, but definitely less than human from a complete inability to relate in anyway other than
                             emotive based and fallacious personal ad hominem attacks and threats.

                             re. JimR in “I will not stoop to your level by debating you on a subject I can see you have no
                             idea of what you’re talking about.”

                             You make meaningless unsupported accusations. I guarantee you I’ve read and
                             comprehended your fictional bible of bullshit in far more depth and many more times than most
                             Xtians…

                             You refuse Rational Debate and discussion because you are an intellectual coward and you
                             fear you might actually have to honestly think for once. You refuse it out of fear and as we see
                             here can only use fallacious argument to support ANY thought that goes through your
                             intellectually less than human neocortex. You repeatedly have shown you can only utillze that
                             tiny emotive based beast brain below your neo-cortex your sub cortex speaks through.

                             re. JimR in “I will however pray for you”

                             Do not patronize or condescend me by claiming to do anything so absurd like that on my
                             behalf.

                             1.) There is nothing wrong at all with being gay. It is a gift from God. Gay people are special
                             gifts to humanity.

                             2.) The U.S. would be a better country if more socialist policies were put in place. Unbridled
                             capitalism without regulation is just as unworkable as communism is.

                             3.) Free healthcare should be instituted for all (except illegal immigrants).

                             4.) Rethugnicans, kkkonservatives, Bible-thumpers, hypocritical Christian bigots, and anti-gay
                             douchebags are the scourge of humanity. This country would be a much better place if they
                             would just keep their mouths shut and let liberals, progressives, and socialists run things. The
                             kkkonservative slime, war profiteers, chickenhawks, and those who were behind 9-11 like Dick
                             Cheney and his retarded puppet, George Bush, are ruining this country. They’ve already
                             bankrupted us to the point that we’re over $9 trillion in debt – obviously they don’t care about
                             the welfare of this country, its citizens, or future generations. This is just one example out of an
                             endless litany of problems that these idiotic pious self-righteous sleazy traitors and their wicked
                             supporters have done to this country. These repulsive slimeballs are the first to throw out Bible
                             verses as if they’re high and holy themselves, yet not a day goes by when many so-called
                             “Christians” are arrested for molesting children, embezzling money, abusing children, abusing
                             elders, abusing animals, or even going so far as the “Christian” judge in Oklahoma who was
                             using a masterbating machine kept under his bench consisting of an electric vacuum pump and
                             plexiglass tubes with hoses to masterbate himself under his robe while sitting behind his bench
                             hearing testimony (naturally, he’s a Repukkkenican). These sick old farts are absolute
                             perverts! When it comes to these self-righteous “Christians”—especially the gay-hating
                             homophobes (they’re the worst)—they are truly the most depraved, vile, reprehensible,
                             disgusting, wretched, perverted, sick, mentally deranged, pious, wicked, and evil criminals,
                             evil-doers, filthbags, liars, and miscreants in all of society.

                             Fortunately, most of these ancient dinosaurs are old and dying off, as is their way of thinking.
                             Soon gay marriage will be legal across the U.S., and legal protections will be instituted to keep
                             these evil Christian heterosexist bigots from discriminating against gay people and putting a lid
                             on the hatred which runs through their veins like blocks of ice through rivers of evil.

                             Isn’t it odd how they use Jesus as their figurehead—a man who taught peace and forgiveness
                             —yet they’re the first ones to say we don’t need anti-bullying laws or hate crime legislation.
                             Why? Because they are HYPOCRITES. They profess peace and forgiveness, yet do the exact
                             opposite.

                             With the new Democratic president and Congress coming into power in Jan 09, it will be a great
                             day in American when all “faith-based” discriminatory funding (tax dollars stolen by the
                             government and misappropriated at the behest of the evil retard & moron, Herr Bushit) is taken
                             back and put to higher and better uses under state-run programs like teaching tolerance,
                             buying books for all elementary school grades which will teach acceptance and normalization
                             of gay people to all grades, starting in kindergarten. Sex Ed should be modified to include the
                             teaching of gay sex as well. Gay-straight clubs should be instituted in all high schools around
                             the country if the students wish. Anti-bullying laws will be passed to protect GLBT kids at
                             school from the barbaric heterosexist bigots and their violent tendencies, increasing prison time
                             for harming a GLBT student. Free housing, food, clothing, transportation, etc. should be given
                             to all homeless gay kids who’ve been kicked out of the family home by their evil Christian
                             parents when they found out they’re gay. Funding increases should be granted to all county
                             and state prosecutors in order to fully prosecute these awful despicable parents so that they
                             may be placed in prison where they belong.

                             Massive new changes to the country’s civil rights statutes need to be instituted so that GLBT
                             citizens are given the same protections everyone else receives, as well as the ability to sue for
                             civil damages those who violate these rights.

                             Free firearms, ammunition, and defensive fighting training should be offered gratis to all GLBT
                             people to protect themselves from violent hetero supremacist thugs.

                             ENDA must be passed so that GLBT people will have the same protections at work that the
                             breeders take for granted. Protections for gay people must be written into the law so that gay
                             people have the same rights that other ethnicities, religions, and political stripes do.

                             The EEOC (Equal Rmployment Opportunities Commission) must be charged with making sure
                             that companies don’t discriminate against gay people and fiven funding increases to carry out
                             “sting” operations against employers who may be discriminating against gay people. Because
                             of the amount of anti-gay prejudice and bigotry in the U.S., a new federal agency must be
                             created to make sure that gay people aren’t being discriminated against, making sure that
                             companies and individuals are behaving correctly and prosecuting those who do not. It should
                             also be made much easier for the government to criminally prosecute those who discriminate
                             against or try to harm GLBT people in any way. The rights of churches and religious
                             organizations to discriminate against gay people must be ended and abolished. If they talk
                             badly of gay people in any way or cite bogus, outdated, mistranslated Bible verses like
                             Leviticus 18:22, then they need to be arrested, locked up and prosecuted (just like how our
                             more forward-thinking and thoughtful neighbor Canada has so intelligently begun doing).

                             The tax-exempt status of churches must be abolished forever. There is absolutely no reason
                             or justification whatsoever that a so-called church should be able to tell it’s members who to
                             vote for, be able to demonize Democrats and talk of Repugnikkkans as saints (they are the
                             true devils), or encouraging even one person to vote for a Repukenican and then receive tax

                             exemption for such treasonous and highly immoral acts. It is an outrage that they are able to
                             not pay taxes (taxes are the dues for democracy, so obviously these Bible-thumpers think that
                             everyone else should pay their dues for them while they not only get by scot free but at the
                             same time able to demonize gay people too).

                             If churches continue to discriminate against gay people, not perform gay marriages, or speak
                             negatively of gay people in any way, then they must be labeled as “hate groups” and put on
                             terrorist watch lists. These terrorist hate groups who try and use the Bible as a weapon while
                             they cower behind their cloak of alleged respectability practicing their vile anti-gay
                             discrimination and hatred against innocent gay people, pretending to be the most respectable
                             members of society are in fact the most reprehensible, sick, disgusting, dishonest, immoral,
                             backwards, barbaric, perverted and repugnant members of society.

                             This country has a long way to go before so many crimes, anti-gay prejudice, unfairness and
                             bigotry against GLBT people can be rectified and the breeders can atone for their ignorance
                             over the years. But one day we will emerge from these Dark Ages of the evil dictator and
                             drunken idiot, pathologically-lying scumbag, and braindead bloodthirsty warmonger and
                             chickenhawk extraordinaire, George Bush, and he and his gang of despicable thugs will all be
                             placed on trial for war crimes charges in addition to their literally endless crimes against
                             America, their absolutely undeniable involvement in 9-11, and we will gain the respect of the
                             rest of the world again that the stupid immoral liar George Bushitler and Darth Cheney have so
                             idiotically squandered, and we will finally be a respectable country again once we institute
                             complete social equality across the board and begin to serve as an example for other countries
                             to follow.

                             Oh, and Obama isn’t a Muslim either. That’s just a smear campaign begun by the scurrilous
                             Repukenikkkans. They know this, but they want to play off the hatred against Muslims in the
                             U.S. I didn’t vote for him, but it illustrates just how despicable, stupid, and idiotic the
                             konservatives, Repukenikkkans, dominionists, fundamentalists, and right-wingers are in this
                             country.

                             Isn’t it funny how they demonize the Rev. Jeremiah Wright on one hand, and then on the other
                             hand try to claim Obama is a muslim?

                             First of all, it’s easy to verify Obama is a Christian with about 2 seconds of research (assuming
                             you even wanted to find out. But why should you? It’s so much easier to be ignorant and
                             hateful rather than put forth just a fraction of an iota of effort and try to step into the light of
                             knowledge). The “Obama is a muslim” rumor just goes to show the gullibility and stupidity of
                             Repugnicans, reich-wingers, and conservatives in the U.S. when they fall for email-spread
                             rumors.

                             Secondly, anytime you see Wright speaking, it’s obvious he’s in a church and not a mosque.
                             Ergo, Obama can’t be a muslim. Third, “Jeremiah Wright” is a Christian name, not a Muslim
                             name—obviously. Anyone with an IQ above 70 should be able to tell Obama isn’t a muslim if
                             he has a pastor with a name like Jeremiah Wright. Duhhh.

                             This just proves why the conservatives, Rethugnicans, creationists, Bushit supporters, etc.,
                             need more education to be brought out of their prejudice, ignorance, and stupidity.

                             Vickie from Texas is proof that even the Democratic party has a nutjob in it here & there.
                             She’s a white woman who shamelessly states she’s from Texas—a fact nobody in their right
                             mind would ever admit unless they wanted to be thought of as a rightwing whackjob as nutty
                             as Ted Nugent, Tom DeLay, or that despicable stupid failure and chronic liar who’s in illegal
                             occupation of our White House. I may live in a state known to be conservative, but thank God
                             I’m not from Texas!!

                             She then goes on to actually ADMIT that she married a black man. How disgusting! Why this
                             isn’t a crime punishable by years of hard labor is beyond me. Maybe it’s because she box
                             became so stretched out from having so many foreign and vibrating objects placed in it over the

                             appendage. Or maybe it’s because these white women who are guilty of committing treason
                             against their race are almost always obese and have asses so big that they can’t do anything
                             other than lay in bed and shovel more food into their mouths.

                             willingly chose to settle for a black one and then with aforethought and malice towards her
                             race chose to defile her body and entire race is sickening beyond words. I have to laugh at
                             those who think that just because someone is gay that they only have buttsex, yet they never
                             seem to be outraged at the thought of an interacial couple having sex through vaginal
                             penetration, not to mention the freaks and racial monsters produced by such abhorrent acts.
                             These same people are probably just as against abortion too, yet never give a thought to the
                             fact that this race-traitor Vicky has assassinated every potential white child that her bloodline
                             could have produced, but instead will now create racial monsters for the rest of time.

                             The thought of a White woman shitting out these freaks is beyond repugnant. Chances are
                             she’s too fat to work herself and the black man she was married to was most likely an ex-con,
                             unhirable, lazy, shiftless, too stupid or careless to use any form of birth control, and had no
                             more than a sixth grade education. So both were probably on welfare and AFDC and had
                             nothing to do other than lay around and do their dirty, filthy acts with each other all day,
                             producing another mutant racial freak every nine months for which they were then entitled to
                             more government money.

                             What is most sickening is that this racefucker is actually proud of her detestable and hideous
                             acts of having shat out three bi-racial monsters and forever polluting her bloodline. If she had
                             any intelligence whatsoever, she’d hide each of her affronts to all humanity, place each mutant
                             offspring in a potato (“potatoe” if you’re a Republican, as per Dan Quayle) sack along with a
                             heavy rock, toss each over the side while in the middle of a large body of water, and resolve to
                             never again #### out any more of these creatures. But being that she’s from Texas, I guess
                             we couldn’t really expect her to have any intelligence now, could we?

                             I shudder when I think of the unforgivable crimes her perverted acts have done to her race and
                             the little monsters she’s forced upon the world and how they can never be undone. Her
                             stupidity will now multiply over and over and over again as the years roll by, forever staining
                             the white race with the insidious sludge of non-white blood.

                             Her family must be so ashamed of her…

                             Aside from ‘thanking god’ for life in some other backwards bible belt state than Texas, does
                             Wyatt Power also ‘thank god’ for such vile white supremacist racist attitudes of hate and
                             bigotry toward a ‘racefucker’ [race mixing]? Is it this invisible ‘god’ that has turned Wyatt Power
                             into such a scoundrel and sad excuse for a human being inhuman?

                             And Mike, if a sexual preference for being ‘gay’ is “a gift from God” as you claim, is it really
                             plausible that all that vile hate, bigotry and violence towards gays from exclusively ‘god fearing’
                             Christians also a ‘gift from god’?

                             It sounds to me like this ‘god’ you all insist on using as a reason for your mutual hate, bigotry
                             and violence toward each another either lives exclusively in your demented, delusional minds
                             or this ‘god’ is terribly cunning and evil. Which do YOU think it is – an imaginary god that exists
                             solely in your minds or a real [yet invisible] god that’s the very definition of evil?

                             Hey Cliffy [article author] – in your 21st century version of McCarthyism, in regard to that last
                             sentence – what exactly is this liberal media that you speak of? Is it the same liberal media
                             across America that aided and abetted the Bush cabal into lying this nation into war?

                             Just before she died in 1963, Franklin’s wife Eleanor wrote on the last page of her last book,
                             Tomorrow Is Now:

                             “Long ago, there was a noble word, LIBERAL, which derived from the word FREE [libre]. Now a
                             strange thing happened to that word. A man named Hitler made it a term of abuse, a matter of
                             suspicion, because those who were not with him were against him, and liberals had no use for
                             Hitler. And then another man named McCarthy cast the same opprobrium on the word. Indeed,
                             there was a time—a short but dismaying time—when many Americans began to distrust the
                             word which derived from FREE. One thing we must all do. We must cherish and honor the
                             word FREE or it will cease to apply to us.”

                             “The American fascists are most easily recognized by their deliberate perversion of truth and
                             fact. Their newspapers and propaganda carefully cultivate every fissure of disunity, every crack
                             in the common front against fascism.” Henry A. Wallace, 33rd US Vice President and 10th
                             Secretary of Commerce, both under Roosevelt.

                             “From 1945 to 2003, the United States attempted to overthrow more than 40 foreign
                             governments, and to crush more than 30 populist [democratic] movements fighting against
                             intolerable [right wing] regimes. In the process, the US bombed some 25 countries, caused the
                             end of life for several million people, and condemned many millions more to a life of agony and
                             despair.” William Blum, Former State Department employee leaving in 1967 due to his
                             opposition to the Vietnam War.

                             Jean,
                             For an 80 year old I would think you would know better. How sad that you are willing to vote
                             for someone with no experience, who has no respect for America, and “hope” they will take
                             care of you simply because they “talk the talk”. We are in for a world of hurt if you and your
                             kind are successful. I am only 10 years your junior, but I do have to give myself credit for
                             having a little more insight into what is going on around me.

                             A. Clawson,
                             I went back and read Jean’s post. I agree with you. Talking the talk is a dangerous metric for
                             picking political leaders to give great power to.

                             I personally have been deeply upset about the way Obama has won this primary. Yes, I
                             support Hillary, and I do it proudly. I to am about 70 but I agonize over the way the media has
                             supported the new kid on the block over the Senator with true experience.

                             Obama’s far left leanings, which are influenced by such marxist based paradigms as black
                             liberation theology and Saul Alinsky style organizing which promotes aggitation and class
                             struggle, quite frankly scare me to death. Watching the talking heads on TV tonight after the
                             candidates gave their speeches was hard to take. If Hillary helps him, I think Barack will be
                             elected. May God help us to find a reasonable path toward “change.”

                             re. Vic in No self-respecting male or female would knowingly vote for a socialist/communist!

                             First there’s socialist or communists running for president in America… I won’t vote for anyone
                             that’s running since all Dem candidates left, including Obama, are right wing authoritarians.

                             According to Obama and Hillary’s congressional voting record, speeches and platform they are
                             conservative at best as firmly in the right wing authoritarian quadrant [fascist] and NOT
                             anything close to left authoritarian [communist] and more importantly NO candidate is anything
                             close to libertarian..

                             Nihilst, interesting choice of screen names – one who believes in nothing. Why do you even
                             have a vote, then? You have not kept up with the election. You claim “[t]here’s NOT a socialist
                             or communists [sic] running for president in America.” Several problems with your uninformed
                             statements.

                             First of all, you presume that America is only comprised of the United States. Not so. You are
                             ignoring Canada, Cuba, Haiti, the D.R., Puerto Rico, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatamala,
                             Nicaragua, Belize, etc. There are socialists running in the countries that have presidents, such
                             as El Salvador. Then you have the Cuban regime that is clearly Communist and with, no doubt,
                             elections coming to determine the proper successor to Fidel.

                             Secondly, you are not up on the elections in the U.S. Brian Moore is the Socialist Party USA
                             nominee to the presidency. Surprising that the Green Party has endorsed him and his issues
                             are largely the same as those of the democratic party. For those who do not believe the
                             democratic party is socialist, check this out:

                             1) Stop The War in Iraq and Afghanistan and bring the American troops and reconstruction
                             companies home immediately;

                             2) Implement a national health care system to include comprehensive health, dental and
                             mental health care for all residents, foreign and domestic.

                             3) Initiate a guaranteed income for all American families, working or not, at a level of $35,000
                             per year per adult (2008 Cost of Living levels)

                             4) Nationalize Oil Industry, Pharmaceutical Industry, Banking and Insurance Industry, Railroad
                             and Automotive Industries, and Entertainment and Sports Industries

                             5) Phase out all nuclear power plants, shut down waste incinerators, landfills and open-pit
                             mining.

                             6) Call for unconditional disarmament by the U.S.

                             7) End U.S. Cuban Embargo and the occupation of Guantanamo, Cuba, and return entire U.S.
                             property to the country of Cuba

                                Call for immediate 50% cut in the military budget, with additional 50% over the next 10
                             years

                             9) Call for treaty outlawing all weapons of mass destruction

                             10) Abolish CIA, NSA, Homeland Security Agency and all other covert warfare institutions

                             Very well put Pete but you left out one thing. Don’t forget gun control. You must first outlaw all
                             guns before the socialist/communists can take over without any problems.

                             Wrong on both counts. Nihilist is not my screen name and the definition of modern nihilism is
                             ‘faith’ in nothing, not belief in nothing.

                             re. PeteCD “Several problems with your uninformed statements. First of all, you presume that
                             America is only comprised of the United States. Not so. You are ignoring Canada, Cuba, Haiti,
                             the D.R., Puerto Rico, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatamala, Nicaragua, Belize, etc. There are
                             socialists running in the countries that have presidents, such as El Salvador.”

                             Don’t play a smart alec game of semantics with me. You know what is meant by America,
                             short for the United States of America or USA by Americans living it. What do you think the ‘A’
                             is for in USA? I didn’t say president of the plural ‘Americas’, I said America, which is a
                             common reference for the US by AMERICANS living in it. Canadians don’t call themselves
                             ‘Americans’ now do they? Mexicans don’t call themselves ‘Americans’ do they. Cubans don’t
                             call themselves Americans. Only Americans refer to themselves ‘Americans’ from a direct
                             referene to the name of this country in the United States of America.

                             re. Then you have the Cuban regime that is clearly Communist and with, no doubt, elections
                             coming to determine the proper successor to Fidel.

                             Irrelavant due to your fraudulent use of semantics having nothing to do with anything relevant.

                             re. Secondly, you are not up on the elections in the U.S.

                             Based on what, you’re meaningless and unknowing opinon of how much I’ve read the news on
                             the US election?

                             re. Brian Moore is the Socialist Party USA nominee to the presidency.

                             You fully know I was referring to in the 2 party system of Dems and Republicans in the US
                             since all others aren’t allowed on the ballot of most all states in the US. Since these 3rd party
                             candidates are kept off the ballots in every state by the Dems and the GOP, and most don’t
                             even get included in anything close to a majority of the states, none of these 3rd party
                             candidates can be considered viable for any Presidential election much less elections to
                             Congress. Although there’s a few Senators and House Reps in 3rd parties, but it’s so few, it’s
                             of no consequence.

                             Like most of all of US in the US, I’m not up on the ‘green party’ or the socialist party like you
                             are, or up on who’s endorsed who in either since irrelevant to this 2 party system forced upon
                             us here in the US of AMERICA. I know little to nothing of what you rant on about regarding
                             wholly irrelevant 3rd parties in the US as they are inconsequential to any election except in
                             taking minor voting percentages from either Democrats or republicans in ‘some’ states.

                             re. PeteCD in “Surprising that the Green Party has endorsed him and his issues are largely the
                             same as those of the democratic party.

                             That’s a bold faced LIE there PeteCD. Brian Moore and the democratic socialist platform of his
                             party ARE NOT LARGELY or even partially the ‘same’ as the THIS democratic party of the US.

                             This US democratic party is so wishy washy they don’t even have a 2008 platform yet, but you
                             can download their 2004 platform on their web site:
                             http://www.democrats.org/a/party/stand.html

                             In the only Demoratic platform found on the internet, the only point I could find of those 36 that
                             is mutually inclusive to both the Socialist USA party and the Democratic party is universal
                             health care. http://www.democrats.org/pdfs/2004platform.pdf

                             re. PeteCD “For those who do not believe the democratic party is socialist, check this out”

                             Have you been hypnotized from watching the Fascist Fox-Fed Fake news station? Of all of
                             those 36 points you’ve listed, the only one that could be construed as ‘mutually inclusive’ to the
                             Democratic Party of this US is again Universal Health Care according to the only platform
                             available they have out yet here: http://www.democrats.org/pdfs/2004platform.pdf

                             To put it bluntly PeteCD, you’re so full of shite I can smell it on your breath from where I’m
                             sitting.. You’are a blatant liar by direcly claiming those 36 points from the Socialist USA party
                             are ‘largely’ the same as the Democratic party of THIS US of A.

                             re. PeteCD in BTW, here is the link, in case you wish to read it for yourself:

                             Put down that crack pipe Pete ‘cause it has to be something like that that makes you so goofy
                             and so incredibly delusional. Copy pasting a US socialist party platform from their website does
                             NOT make it the same as this US Democratic party platform.

                             A bold faced LIE is very well put? Perhaps for scoundrels and those that support them….

                             Gun control has nothing to do with your oversimplified “left vs right’ economic view of the
                             political landscape. The left to right political continuum deals with economics ONLY. Gun
                             control is a social issue of government control on the authoritarian to libertarian vertical
                             continuum. There are many liberals, democrats and libertarians that support gun control as
                             strongly as any given republican claims to support it.

                             The reality is any given authoritarian govt, be it communist left or fascist right, will attempt to
                             take away the more powerful weapons of its populace they rule over from fear of overthrow if
                             pushing their despotic centralized control too far. Hence what republican authoritarian Bush did
                             in his executive order expanding marshall law that takes away all weapons of the populace
                             during a declared ‘emergency’.

                             Hey Tyrone. McCain was born in the United States. To bad you don’t undertand that the
                             Panama Canal and the military base he was born on were American soil. The land in which the
                             Canal was built was given to the United States as compensation for the U.S.A. helping Panama
                             gain its independance from Colombia. (Not only that, the U.S. then paid Colombia for the value
                             of all of Panama because of our efforts). Then the U.S. funded the complete construction of
                             the canal. So, that was part of the U.S.A., well at least until the peaNUT! farmer Carter gave
                             them away to the communists. Oh wait, another Democratic Party Communist link.

                             Carter give Panama the canal back, they turn it over to Hutchison Whampoa, a Hong Kong-
                             based shipping concern whose owner, Li Ka Shing, is the wealthiest man in China. HW is so in
                             bed with the Peoples Liberation Army it has been accused at times of being a front company
                             that is controlled by them. So, Carter turned the Panama Canal over to the Chinese
                             Communist Army.

                             Oh, here is another Democratic Party – Communist link. Li Ka Shing, and all his friends are
                             the ones believed to be behind the funding of the election of President Clinton. You do
                             remember all those non-U.S citizens from China that kept giving millions to Bill. Communist
                             Red Army ties!!!!

                             Oh, and lets not forget Obama’s campaign funding. You know those record numbers that he is
                             pulling in now. Under the new rules – anything under $250 does not have to be reported as to
                             who donated the money. That is why the average donation is $190 for Obama. All his
                             communists friends have to do is make 100s of small donations, and he does not have to

                             re. Joe T in “The land in which the Canal was built was given to the United States as
                             compensation for the U.S.A. helping Panama gain its independance from Colombia. (Not only
                             that, the U.S. then paid Colombia for the value of all of Panama because of our efforts).”

                             You’re simplistic version of the Panama Canal story leaves out many pertinent facts. The
                             Panama Canal story is a classic example of American fascist imperialism that has directly and
                             indirectly overthrown a host of sovereign nations to satiate unending and unregulated American

                             Greg,

                              Communism is not a political system; it is an economic system. A political system describes
                             the way the people in the political unit are governed: e.g., 1) dictatorship and monarchy, in
                             which the people are governed by a single individual; 2)oligarchy, in which the people are
                             governed by a small group of people; 3) plutocracy (a form of oligarchy), in which the people
                             are ruled by the very rich; 4) democracy, in which the people are ruled by themselves.
                             Democracy is divided into A)representational democracy (which is the ostensible form of the
                             US government, though the political power of big business in the US brings it closer to being a
                             plutocracy), in which the people vote for people to represent them (e.g., presidents, vice-
                             presidents, senators, representatives, etc.) in making laws and otherwise governing them and
                             B) participatory democracy, in which the people themselves vote on issues of governance (e.g.,
                             as in a plebiscite); 5) anarchy, in which the people are not governed by anyone.

                               An economic system describes the way wealth in the economic unit is distributed: e.g., 1)
                             feudalism and slavery, in which a small group owns, controls, and receives most of the
                             economic benefit of the unit’s resources, including the workers themselves; 2) capitalism, in
                             which those who own the unit’s non-human resources receive most of the benefit therefrom;
                             and 3) socialism and communism, in which all the people in the unit jointly own and benefit
                             from the unit’s resources (somewhat as shareholders under capitalism jointly own and benefit
                             from a company).

                               The Soviet Union, which I presume you are taking as your model of “communism” was
                             politically a dictatorship. Economically, it was not a true communist system, whatever it called
                             itself, because the people did not share equally in the resources and benefits of the economic
                             unit; the politically powerful reaped the major benefits of the unit. However, it was more
                             communist or socialist than a comparable hybrid capitalist-socialist system like the US or
                             Canada in that it did provide as far as possible after the politically powerful had taken their
                             share of the unit’s resources for the basic economic needs of all the people, which hybrid
                             capitalist-socialist systems do not necessarily do (health care is an example in the US). The
                             nearest to units which have a purely communist or socialist system are found in religious
                             groups such as convents, monasteries, and Old Order Amish and Hutterite communities.
                             (Incidently, a number of socialists and communists, such as George Bernard Shaw and Sean
                             O’Casey, regarded Christ as the first communist. They based this on the miracle of the loaves
                             and the fishes, when Christ decided that all the people should have enough to eat, not just
                             those who owned the bread and fish. In many countries, socialist elements, such as social
                             security and national health care, were introduced by Christian socialists, often ministers
                             themselves, who believed that Christ would not want old people to starve when they could no
                             longer work or people to die of diseases that could be cured).

                              Despite the model of the Soviet Union, socialist or communist economic systems need not be
                             dictatorships. A number of economically socialist governments have been democratically
                             elected under political participatory democracy systems. I am thinking here of Salvador
                             Allende’s government in Chile or the current government in Venezuela. Neither of them
                             are/were purely economically socialist of communist; both permit(ted) the existence of private
                             property, though they nationalize(d) major national resources for the benefit of the people
                             within the economic unit.

                              Just as there are no pure socialist or communist economic systems today, there are also no

                             pure capitalist ones. The nineteenth-century Western world provided the nearest to that: no
                             social security, little regulation of such matters as food quality (i.e., if I sold you meat
                             adulterated with arsenic, you would have little recourse), no help for the poor, even in times of
                             famine, except that provided by private charities (that’s why 1 million Irish died in the Famine of
                             the 1840s; many more, at least another million or more, more would have died without private
                             assistance). Still even the nineteenth century was not purely capitalist. There were such
                             socialist (i.e., for the benefit of all people, whether they paid for it or not) programs as a police
                             force and public sanitation.

                               There is a difference, Greg, between political and economic systems nor matter how much
                             those in power, whether politically or economically or both, find it to their advantage to blur the
                             line between them to persuade people to accept the advantages of those in power.

                             Adnihilo,

                             Amazing how my defending McCain as being born on American soil is interpreted as “fool”
                             hearted attempt to support what you call “American fascist imperialism”. Your lack on
                             intelegence to see my stating that that Panama Canal Zone was U.S.A. territory is expounded
                             by your obvious socialist/communist rhetoric about American imperialism. No matter how the
                             Canal Zone became U.S. soil, it was just that U.S. soil, and McCain was born on U.S soil.

                             Forgive me if I am not as smart as you, and your liberal friends, but I guess I missed a few
                             days of U.S. History in high school. When exactly was the “planned and financed the
                             overthrow of American democracy from the assassination of FDR in order to install a fascist
                             dictatorship more to the liking of US industrialists”? I don’t remember that part of U.S. History.
                             Oh well, who needs the truth when your a ranting on about American imperialism.

                             I love your quoting Charles Higham and Christopher Hedges. Higham a film critic that has
                             written one book unrelated to Holloywood, and you cite it – very interesting source. And,
                             Hedges a senior fellow at The Nation Institute (publisher of The Nation – the self described
                             “flagship of the left”).

                             Impressive how you rant and rave about American Imperialism when that was not even the
                             topic of conversation. I guess you could not defeat any of the Democratic Party – Communist
                             Party links, so attack the “right” as facists with inaccurate information and cites from
                             socilist/leftists.

                             Oh now to William Blum, a low-level computer programmer in the State Department that
                             became disallusioned witht the Vietnam War. A self confessed “socialist” that founded the
                             Washington Free Press. The WFP has editors like Kjartan who writes about how Castro
                             enviornmental policies in Cuba are “great”.

                             Your just a marxist/communist liberal leftist that can’t say anything about the Democratic Party
                             ties to Communism, so you attack.

                             I have some of the more pertinent PDF transcript files of the actual 1935 hearings on this
                             fascist overthrow stopped by Marine General Smedley Butler. He also wrote a book called ‘War
                             is a Racket’.
                             http://www.warisaracket.com/ [War is a Racket]
                             http://warisaracket.org/ [SMEDLEY BUTLER SOCIETY]

                             It’s an amazing true story of the same fascist corporatism we see today in what some say is
                             George Bush’s completion of what his grand daddy attempted to do during the 1930s.

                             I’ll bet few if any of the far right cult wingnuts here know the republican party in 1940 received
                             the majority of its campaign financing from Hitler’s Nazi Party. I also bet few if any know that
                             Herbert Hoover, ex republican president, conspired in Germany with Hitler’s Nazis to again
                             overthrow FDR in 1940. I also bet few to none know an Italian fascist era ‘Freemason’
                             attempted to assassinate FDR a few months before he was inagurated in May 1933…

                             What you all are vilifying in imaginary US communism today are the proven evil deeds and
                             history of the republican party in cahoots with Nazis, fascism and corporate America… What
                             all the brainwashed cult of the Christian Right here condemns as the evil of authoritarian
                             communism is likewise found in authoritarian right wing fascism they apparently NEED.

                             Why don’t any of you even consider the opposite of authoritarianism found in Libertarianism
                             regardless if iit’s left or right? Do you all so need this controlling gov’t daddy ruling over just you
                             like you need that imaginary sky daddy?

                             IN FACT this very same AIM group Kincaid uses as a far right wing tool of McCarthyism was
                             also used by McCarthy’s Unamerican Activities Committe to disseminate right wing
                             propagandist lies back then.

                             “The entire story circulated by Romerstein, a former employee of the House Unamerican
                             Activities Committee, and Accuracy in Media, the right wing pressure group, is scurrilous and
                             false.” [Proven False claims made about Izzy Stone working for and with the Soviet Union and

                             I have some of the more pertinent PDF transcript files of the actual 1935 hearings on this
                             fascist overthrow stopped by Marine General Smedley Butler. He also wrote a book called ‘War
                             is a Racket’.

                             It’s an amazing true story of the same fascist corporatism we see today in what some say is
                             George Bush’s completion of what his grand daddy attempted to do during the 1930s.

                             I’ll bet few if any of the far right cult wing nuts here know the republican party in 1940 received
                             the majority of its campaign financing from Hitler’s Nazi Party. I also bet few if any know that
                             Herbert Hoover, ex republican president, conspired in Germany with Hitler’s Nazis to again
                             overthrow FDR in 1940. I also bet few to none know an Italian fascist era ‘Freemason’
                             attempted to assassinate FDR a few months before he was inagurated in May 1933…
