Bill Ayers is a Communist and has ties to 8 people in the White House. See facts here: http://www.commieblaster.com/bill_ayers/index.html. Obama is a Communist. See facts here: http://www.commieblaster.com/obama/index.htm. 80+ in Congress are Communists. See facts here: http://www.commieblaster.com/progressives/index.html
His site, btw, is quite a paranoid, historically-ignorant trip.
Commieblaster's comment reminded me of the anonymous note I received while campaigning for Obama during the election:
and the subsequent comment A Blue View reader left about it:
I have been pretty active in campaigning for Barack Obama. A lot of folks where I live know this about me. I strive to do this, both in the community and on the canvassing trail as politely and respectfully as possible. However, not everyone wants to behave in a like manner. Yesterday I was verbally accosted at our local school bus stop. Out of the blue - I did not bring up the subject of politics - I was told that if Obama was elected, that I would be the one to blame. I was told that "We will come knocking on your (my) door to blame you (me) for having to live in a socialist society".
At the time these events occurred, EJ Dione asked:
Are we witnessing the reemergence of the far right as a power in American politics? Has John McCain, inadvertently perhaps, become the midwife of a new movement built around fear, xenophobia, racism and anger? ... We are in the midst of what could become -- and here's hoping it doesn't -- the worst economic downturn in decades. The last thing we need is a campaign that strengthens fanaticism, tarnishes the authority of the next president and whips up the worst kinds of prejudice.
Thanks to Commieblaster, the birthers & Tea Baggers, I think it is both sad and clear that we have witnessed the rebirth of the far right fringe over the last year. The unanswered question, is how powerful are they? Will they effect enough elections to have impact?
