Are you as angry as I am about the lie the MSM is perpetuating about the quote "angry, bigoted" Republicans? The comments about Sarah Palin and John McCain are far more incendiary and repetitive than anything the GOP is saying, or even some far right kooks out there.
I am particularly incensed by the comment from the crackpot liberal crowd that is making its around the Internet "Let's stone her, old school style."
"..Danny Glover (no, not THAT Danny Glover) at Eyeblast.tv has done an excellent job researching the video out there that purports to show wild-eyed fanatics from the GOP. Here is his email:
There was some discussion on this list last week about a viral video where McCain-Palin supporters are badgered into calling Barack Obama a terrorist on camera. This kind of footage of select individuals is being fed by, and then subsequently feeding into, the current MSM meme about rage-filled McCain-Palin backers.
Andrew Sullivan linked to one of the videos, as have a couple of other MSM outlets. More may follow. That being the case, I decided it was worth researching the man behind the footage.
I wasn't surprised to learn that this "tracker" has a record as an online troublemaker.
My story is here: http://blog.eyeblast.tv/?p=112.The piece was relatively simple to research. Most of the information was culled from the video producer's own blog.
Which begs the question why the MSM don't do the same legwork when these kinds of clips surface. Journalists need to put these kinds of hit jobs in the proper context if they are going to use them. That's Journalism 101.
And considering the source in this instance, I'd say the videos should be avoided altogether."
Just another example of angry Obama supporters:
Outside the Bellevue, Palin, sitting in her car, gave a little back and forth wave to the protesters, who in return gave her thumbs down and rounds of boos.
"Back to Alaska, They shouldn't have Asked ya!" read one poster on the median.
Police said about 400 protesters lined the streets outside the hotel, the same number that organizers expected at the fund-raiser, chanting to each other and to passing motorists. Inside, Palin got her hair and makeup done at Pierre & Carlo Salon & Spa.
At times, Republicans attending the event and protesters confronted one another.
"They are hooligans," said Bucks County restaurateur and McCain supporter Andrew Abruzzese, after he flashed a peace sign at protesters, who responded with raised middle fingers. Another Republican complained of being jostled.
Of Palin's rise from PTA activist to City Council to mayor to governor to vice presidential candidate, Abruzzese said: "You couldn't get a more natural progression than that."
Several Republican attendees complained of the protesters' vulgarity, especially in light of recent criticism of the behavior of people at McCain-Palin rallies.
Outside on Broad Street, waiting for Palin to leave, one man was heard saying: "Let's stone her, old school."
Another protester shouted at someone entering the hotel, "Wait till your daughter wants an abortion, you hypocrite."
